Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2008 Toyota Prius - Curt

Today, on our 2008 Toyota Prius, we'll be installing the Curt Hitch, part number C11468. This is what our hitch will look like, once installed. Next, we'll go ahead and give you a couple of measurements to assist you in selecting accessories for your new hitch. In the center of the hitch pin hole, to the outermost edge of the bumper is 2 3/4 inches. From the top of the receiver tube opening to the ground is 9 3/4 inches. This will assist you in selecting accessories, such as a ball mount, bike rack, or cargo carrier. To begin our install, we'll need to remove the under body panel on the driver's side, by removing the push pin fasteners and screws.

To remove the push pin fasteners, we'll use a flat head screwdriver to pry the center of the fastener out and then remove it completely. With the fasteners removed, simply pop the panel free and set it aside for re-installation later. Next, we'll need to remove the two hooks on the driver and passenger side. By removing the two bolts on each tow hook, we can go ahead and remove the tow hooks and set them aside, as they will not be reinstalled. The attachment points for the two hooks will serve as the attachment points for our hitch. We're ready to put our hitch up into position.

It's a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you hold the hitch. Bring the passenger side up over the exhaust first, and then raise the driver's side into position. We'll use the included 10 millimeter bolts and conical tooth washers to secure our hitch to the frame. Make sure that the teeth of the washer are facing the hitch while we install the fasteners. We'll install the bolts finger tight until we have them all in place. Now, with all six fasteners in place, we'll go ahead and tighten them down.

Next, we'll torque to specifications, as indicated in the instructions. We'll need to cut out a small section of the under body panel, in order to install it. We can use a rotary tool or pair of cutters to remove the section. After we remove the section, we can go ahead and reinstall the under body panel with the manufacturer's fasteners. Now, with everything reinstalled, we're ready to hit the road.

That does it for the install of our Curt hitch, part number C11468 on our 2008 Toyota Prius. .

March 2013 - '07 Toyota Prius Curt Hitch. This is my second Curt hitch from etrailer.com, and they are great products that hold up well even with the salt and sand in winter. The Prius hitch is very easy to install for a DIY'er. It takes about 45 minutes with only basic tools. The instructions are clear and the hitch lined up perfectly. This hitch is perfect for light duty or a bike rack, and is barely noticeable once installed. It is my opinion that the Curt hitch is worth the extra money as it is a very high quality product. 72295

Hitch is well made, but the install was more hassle than need be. On my Prius the mounting holes in the hitch were an aggravating 1/8th inch too narrow. Once you find the right block of wood you can lever the hitch just that much wider and get the bolts started. You might file the holes a little bit ahead of time and make the job easier. ( a lot easier), this is an easy install made harder by poor engineering. Also, the pin that holds the thing you are inserting into the hitch is misdrilled and you cannot get the clip to fully engage, crazy! ( The orientation of the clip hole vs the handle on the pin just isn't right. This is an issue as the clip is almost engaged, but not fully. I'll grind the end and imagine it will work. Again, no one is really paying attention to what they are selling you. 409886

Super fast shipping, not sure if this is business as usual but I ordered this product on a Monday night and it was at my door Wednesday afternoon, wow! Install took me about 90 minutes doing it completely by myself, so if you have help, you could probably trim 30 minutes off that time. Installing it without a lift or with a jack probably added some time too. What took the longest by far lining up the back bolt on each side. I had to use the suggested board trick while having all the bolt completely loose on both sides, even with that, it was still a pain. On an 85 degree day, I almost gave up on it, but then picturing how much more cargo and stuff I can pull, I persevered. If at all possible, use lift to install this item. Also, as another review said, you'll probably need to trim the plastic cover a bit towards the car along with what is suggested in the video, at least with my 2005 Prius. 21270

Products seems very well-built and painted, I expect it will last for the life of the car, if not beyond. Only flaw on build is that manufacturer could have cleaned up weld splash before painting. E-Trailer could do a better job in packing item. Ends of hitch should be covered with padding (cardboard, etc) Sharp edges of heavy items will tend to blow through box. Arrived with minor scratches. Hitch was very easy to attach, holes aligned perfectly making an install straight forward! 557563

So far the hitch receiver has held up beautifully! As far as I know, it fit onto my Prius with no problems (I had a mechanic install it, because I didn't have any way to raise my car). A week after installing, I drove across the country with this and a bike rack attached, with no problems of any kind. I can't ask for anything else. 413510

No problems to report - holding up well.

Very satisfied with the Curt trailer hitch receiver on my 2006 Prius. Thanks to great instructions, especially the video, it was easy to install with no lift needed. The fascia fasteners on my car didn't quite match the video - 5 of the 6 fasteners were different from the others - but all were easy to remove and replace. Just returned from an 800 mile trip with 2 bikes on a new hitch rack. I used the stabilization strap and there was no bounce and very little side to side sway. Thanks etrailer! 395006

Installed easily. One complaint is that you can not fit the cotter pin into the hitch pin without bending one of the chain loops down a little. The hitch pin needed to rotate more. 390038

Worked as advertised. Installation was straight forward. Instructions were sufficient. I was able to do it without assistance even though I was 77 years old. I cannot comment on the strength of the hitch as I only use it for my bike rack. 269727

What great people! Everything was easy-- from the ordering process to the delivery. The hitch arrived quickly and I just had it installed, which I didn't do but it was a very quick visit to the garage. 180845

We bought this product for a long trip so that we could attach a bike rack. It's working great. Nice to have a hitch that we can depend on. Really like the customer service from etrailer. They are so friendly and helpful. 157767

The hitch trailer is sturdy and well made, and I had no problem installing it myself. 86873



- C11468
by:

I just installed this hitch myself and it went on as expected. Since I did it alone, I got one side bolted into the frame and then had to use a screwdriver to help align the holes on the other side of the hitch to the frame. Some installation videos suggested a 2x4 but I could not do that by myself, however, using the screwdriver to align the holes worked. 49239



- C11468
by:

On the plus side, this is a pretty solid hitch. It should do the job at least as well as any other. On the minus side, this thing was an absolute nightmare to install. Curt must not use a proper jig to weld and drill because the holes were misaligned by something like 3/8 of an inch. It took me two hours and a good deal of brute force to get all four bolts in. I watched the etrailer installation video before my attempt and I did use the 2x4 trick. It helped to use a second shorter piece of wood to apply the load closer to the bolts, high on the flange. Personally, I would tell a friend to try a different brand of hitch in hopes of an easier installation. 48178



- C11468
by:

I found the hitch was very rugged and well made. The only complaint I had was the spacing side to side of the mounting holes, they were off by about 1/8" to 1/4". I was able to get it bolted on the car but not without a bit of persuasion. It does in fact show that in the installation video. Shipping was very good, ordered on Sunday and it was here Thursday. 45407

Installed easily and solidly built. Required slight modification of a plastic shroud on the drivers side. From start to finish was under an hour. 43597



- C11468
by:

This is a great and well made hitch, and easy to install. I'm giving it a 4 star, rather than 5 star, because the cotter pin that comes with it is impossible to securely fasten with the hairpin, because the angle of the hole in the cotter pin, is such that the hairpin won't fit through without hitting the back of the hitch, the round chain holes on the bottom, or the metal plate on top. It doesn't seem secure to me, because the only way I could get the hairpin in at all was to insert it facing up with the round side down. Even then, I couldn't get it in quite all the way for the hairpin to rest on the cotter pin. 37531

Hitch looks very heavy duty compared to the last car hitch I put on. I have not put on hitch yet and won't have time till Thursday after work. Thank you. Jeff 26062

I am planning a trip to Acadia National Park this Summer and needed a 4-bike carrier for my Prius. After viewing the instructional video and reading reviews, I was convinced that the Curt hitch and Thule rack were exactly what I needed. Everything was just as easy as the video made it sound. I put the hitch and the rack on the car by myself in about an hour. I would recommend the product and this web site to anyone who asks. 18561

fit like a charm, no problems I had read that with some hitches you had to re=route the exhaust pipe on the prius so that the exhaust would not melt the plastic trim. Not a problem with this product. Simple to install. 3335

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Recommendation for Class I Trailer Hitch to be Used with Bike Carrier on 2009 Toyota Prius
  • The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 24808 and the Curt Trailer Hitch # C11468 are the two hitch options currently available for your 2009 Toyota Prius. I recommend the Draw-Tite # 24808. It is our most popular hitch for the 2009 and the main difference from the Curt model is that it does not require a stabilization strap for hitch mounted accessories. This is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" receiver opening and a tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs which would be perfect for carrying lighter...

  • Trailer Hitch and Trailer Wiring Harness for 2009 Toyota Prius
  • The Curt Class I receiver hitch you mentioned, part # C11468 would be a great choice for your 2009 Prius. The trailer wiring harness is sold separately as part # 118505. If you use the provided links, you can see install videos for both the hitch and the wiring harness. You'll also need a ball mount like # C45521, a trailer ball like # A-82 for a 2 inch ball or # A-80 for a 1-7/8 inch ball and a pin and clip like # F-4.

  • Where Does a Stabilizing Strap Attach for a Cargo Carrier and CURT Trailer Hitch, 2009 Toyota Prius
  • CURT Class I, II, and some Class III trailer hitches do require the use of stabilizing strap # 18050 on all non-trailer loads to be in compliance with the CURT warranty. A non-trailer load would include a cargo carrier, so you would need to use the strap. One end of the strap would be secured to the cargo carrier, the other end has a rubber coated hook. This hook can be placed in the gap between the trunk lid or hatch and the body of the vehicle on a Toyota Prius. The purpose of the...

  • Curt 18110 compared to 18140
  • First lets talk about a hitch for your 2007 Toyota Prius, I would recommend the Draw Tite hitch part # 24808. The reason for this is that Curt recommends you use a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 when you use a non-supported load on the hitch like a cargo carrier. Draw Tite doesn't have that requirement so I think you would be happier with the # 24808. Now the differences between the Curt Cargo Carriers part # C18110 and the # C18145 are pretty substantial. I personally like the #...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2010 Toyota Prius
  • In 2010 they redesigned the Prius enough to require a new hitch fit. So the # C11468 would not carry over to your new Prius. Instead you'd want the Draw Tite part # 24847 which is a confirmed fit. I like this hitch over the Curt because it does not require the use of a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

  • Can Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver with Drawbar, Part # 11468, Haul 2000 lbs with a 2009 Prius
  • The 2009 Prius is not specified to tow anything, according to the manufacturer. However, you will want to double check your owners manual to confirm the manufacturer recommendations and precautions in this regard. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver with Drawbar - Custom Fit, part # 11468, will fit your vehicle. It is intended for purposes such as supporting a bike rack or small cargo carrier. This light-duty Class I hitch receiver has a tongue weight (TW) rating of 200 pounds, which is...

Our most popular hitch for your Prius is the Draw-Tite # 24808. I have included a short installation video for you.

  • I'd highly recommend you check your owners manual or with Toyota about using the Prius for towing. I do know that they don't recommend it for certain model years. I'd recommend Draw-Tite part # 24808. If you decide to use the vehicle for towing, you would also need a ball mount and trailer wiring harness like part # 118505.

However, there are only 2 hitch receivers available or your 2009 Toyota Prius, parts # 24808 and # C11468, and they're both Class I, 1-1/4 inch hitches. This is to prevent the overloading of the vehicle since its weight capacity is extremely low. Instead I recommend using a trunk mount bike rack. The Thule Gateway XT, part # TH9006XT, is a great option that's confirmed to fit the Prius. I've linked a video...

They're both a Class I hitch receivers so you'll need to use accessories specifically designed for Class I. You should know, the Curt hitch requires you to use a support strap, # 18050, when using the hitch to carry a bike rack.

You would then attach the rubber coated hook on the end of the strap to the metal trunk lip on the vehicle and tighten the strap. You do not want to put undue stress on the lip when tightening the strap. The Curt Class I Hitch, # 11468, and your 2008 Toyota Prius are not designed to carry 4...

Trailer hitch manufacturers recommend using the draw bar that was specifically tested with their hitch. For example, if you have the Curt Class I Trailer Hitch, # C11468, installed, then the draw bar that you will want is part # C45521. If you have the Draw-Tite Class I Hitch, # 24808, then you will...

For your 2010, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite # 24847. The hitch attachment points on the 2010 model are different than those of the 2004, so there's no safe way to modify your old hitch so it'll work. Attempting to modify the hitch can affect the strength of the steel that the hitch is constructed of, which...

This is because Draw-Tite puts a weld stop inside the receiver of their Class I models that prevents Class II accessories from fitting properly. Curt does not add this weld stop so for your 2008 Toyota Prius you will want to go with the Curt Class I Receiver Hitch # C11468,...
