Bought this for my girlfriend's car, was ready to install, but more complicated than I wanted it to be, lol. Took about 90 minutes to install by myself. Love this thing so much I bought one for my son & his girlfriend's jeep, it comes next week. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! If we ever need another hitch, this is where I'm coming back to!

Have installed hitches 30 years ago, what a pain they where. This hitch was simple!!! Enjoyed the ease with this curt hitch. I would recommend these hitches to anyone. I am 65 years old, did have my (35year) help side it in. Other than that I did the work myself in the drive way on ramps

This Hitch is great was a breeze to install with some help from a good friend and there are no complaints here fits just a specified with no issues I have had this for a year On My 2013 Ford Escape Use it for taking trash to the Dump, as well as got a nice 5X8 Trailer for hauling my tractor and motorcycles and other things.....Not disappointed

This Receiver fit perfect and very well made. Its is great to find a company that is so good at what they do. Integrity and Quality out standing and the install video's the best. I installed this receiver by myself witch was difficult and awkward. Video said it will take two people and they were right. I still got it done and turned out perfect, it took me 2 1/2 hours.

So far so good. Installation was a little tough without a lift but manageable. People should be sure to have a helper when it comes to getting the hitch into place. I added some pictures with a ball attachment added. I haven't installed the trailer wiring kit yet but when I do I will write a review about that. Shipping was quick and the price was great. Thanks for your quick service and high quality products.

Although the package was somewhat damaged the trailer hitch and receiver were in excellent appearance and condition . The automotive shop I went to had everything installed in about 2 hours . The big surprise was that all hardware was a direct bolt in process . This is unusual as most products require some minor modification . My congratulations to your company for providing a product well worth the money Respectfully


Comments
At first I was very nervous about your bolt in statement . But what a surprise . My mechanic said there were no problems . It worked just as you said it would . Great product for the money

This worked great. Could not have done it without the helpful videos found on the site. I had to use car ramps which made it a bit more challenging to move the hitch in place but other than that, the installation was easy. One thing I found looking around was to use my impact drill/driver and a rasp bit to grind down the opening to get the bolts in. Speaking of bolts, make sure you thread those on the fish leads. Almost lost one in the frame to being lazy. Don't let that be you. Install took an hour for me with it being a little tricky to get the bolt nuts on and making sure everything was just right. The pics are after our first road trip. I should have done this a long time ago.

The process of mounting it would have been easier if I had a lift but other than that it was straight forward. have towed trailers and also used it to haul dirt bikes and go karts with accessory mounts.

I'm very pleased with this product, mostly because it feels really solid. It looks like it could handle any trailer I may decide to pull with it. The product arrived promptly and without any damage. The installation instructions were adequate and I was able to install the hitch myself, although it took a lot of strength and finesse to fit it into place over the top of the muffler. It would be good to have two people. The wires to fish the bolts into place worked brilliantly. That feature saved lots of time and effort. I like the look of the hitch under the car, since it is very unobtrusive. My Ford Escape has a feature by which you can trip the sensor to open the rear door by putting your foot underneath the bumper. (Great for when your hands are full). Fortunately, this feature still works, even though the hitch sits directly under the sensor. Although I may use the hitch to pull a small camper in the future, the main reason I installed it was for a bike carrier rack. I love it. See photos.

Looks great and is fully functional! I like that it is more hidden than most other receivers. I paid someone to put it on my 2017 Escape Titanium so I can't speak to that.

Still working just fine. I pretty much only use it for my bike rack now, but when I used it for a small boat it works great every time!

Best made trailer hitch on the market today, I put this trailer hitch on myself with the video on my iPad (easy step by step instructions). Took me a couple of hours to install hitch and wiring harness. Loved how it tucked up under my Ford Escape and all you see is the receiver end of the hitch. Use it today to haul a utility trailer and boat to my favourite fishing holes. Best value for a well built hitch. Thanks e-trailers for the speedy shipping (free by the way) and great product. Have recommended your product to everyone that asked where I got the hitch from. Thanks again. I am sure your product will last longer than this vehicle, and I know I will definitely order your product on my up and coming vehicle purchases.

This was a very nice experience. I found the hitch needed to fit my car AND a video clearly explaining installation. Ordered on June 29; order shipped on June 30; email notification of shipment. Arrived July 2, early AM. Installation hardware included. The only way it could've been better installer in the box too.

Fit like a glove. The Youtube videos are very helpful. I watched the installation videos of a few models before I decided on the hidden hitch - C13186. As an added suggestion, my shop cut the muffler pipe then welded it back - it made the installation much easier. P.S. Please disregard the double copy of one of the photos. The un-named one could not be removed once I uploaded it.

Everything I ordered showed up in good condition. Install and videos are spot on. If you are somewhat mechanically inclined you should be able follow along and have success. Definitely need a second hand getting hitch up in place. Oh yeah the items I bought for this install was $6 cheaper than Amazon prime and basically shipped just as fast

2018 Ford Escape

I bought and installed a class III Curt hitch for a 2018 Ford Escape. Being the NE winter temps I decided not to tackle the job in my garage, but arranged for my mechanic and I to install the hitch at his shop on his lift. Sure happy with this decision as the install was not quite as simple as showed in the video. The video was accurate in describing the install process, the hitch fit was good, but attempting the install without a lift is not recommended. The hitch arrived promptly and the order process was straightforward, however the hitch packaging was torn in seven places and the hitch was hanging out of the box. All parts were present and no damage was done to the hitch. If the install wasn't so difficult and packaging was not compromised I would have given a 5 star rating.


Comments
The hitch after a year is working great. I have noticed the paint has held up well which is another welcome feature. I would buy another hitch from this company without reservations.

The hitch is well built. The included instructions were well written. The little wire guides getting the bolts into the box frame of the car were amazing! If fact, the installation kit/support, was a key factor as to why I purchased from etrailer. The only issue was one of the mounting ear's were bent in shipping. This wasn't discovered until I attempted to install the hitch. At first it looked like the hitch was not the correct fit for my car. But upon closer look I saw the bent attachment ear. A few corrective hits from a large hammer straightened the bent ear and the hitch went right on. I am sure etrailer would have made things right had I contacted them about the issue. I work with steel all day and it wasn't a problem for me to correct. The hitch is a heavy item, as it needs to be to be safe. So I can see where the shipping box can take a real beating.

    You won't need to do any modifications to the bumper on your 2019 Ford Escape but you are going to be required to do some trimming of the heat shield that protects some electrical components from the exhaust heat coming from the muffler and exhaust pipe. I've attached the installation video of this hitch, which does show you how to complete this task.
