Video Transcript for etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Installation - 2019 Toyota Highlander

Today on our 2019 Toyota Highlander, you're gonna be taking a look at, I'm gonna how you how to install the Curt class three trailer hitch receiver.This is what our hitch looks like when it's installed. You can see the cross tube is visible. But it sits nice and tight up against the bottom of the fascia, and has a round tube design, so it's gonna fit nicely with the contour of the vehicle. It's gonna be a class three hitch, two inch by two inch receiver tube opening. We're gonna have a nice reinforced collar to give us a little extra stability there. Hitch pinhole is gonna be 5/8 inch in diameter.

It's gonna take a standard 5/8 hitch pin. Now the hitch pin clip does not come with this hitch, however it can be found here at etrailer.com. We're gonna have plate style safety chain loops. The plate's gonna be welded to the bottom of the cross tube and the receiver tube. You can see we're gonna have large openings that's gonna accommodate a variety of different size hooks.

This is gonna have a nice black powder coat finish that's gonna resist any rust or corrosion.As far as our weight capacity's gonna go, we're gonna have a 900 pound max tongue weight, which is a downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube, the 6000 pound gross trailer weight, which is the trailer plus the load included. You can use weight distribution with this hitch. Tongue weight's gonna stay the same at 900 pounds. Trailer weight's gonna go up to 8000 pounds. I do recommend checking the owner's manual of your Highlander, make sure the vehicle can withstand that amount of weight.

You're gonna pick the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch. Now let's give you a few measurements to help you on deciding on any hitch-mounted accessories you may need. From the center of the hitch pin hole, back to the outermost part of the bumper, is gonna be about a half inch. From the ground to the top innermost part of the receiver tube, is gonna be about 16 1/2 inches. Now let's show you how to get this installed.Now before you start your installation, it's a good idea to go ahead and lower your spare tire.

Then we're gonna remove our two appearance panels, on the bottom driver's side and passenger side. We're gonna have a couple of push pin fasteners that look like this, then we're gonna have a couple bolts like this, and we use a 10 millimeter socket to remove those.You can take a flathead screwdriver, or trim panel tool if you have one like this, pop out the center, and make sure you bring the base with it. Then we'll have two fasteners on the inside. We use a 12 millimeter socket to remove those. It's easier if you just put some downward pressure on it, too. 'Cause these are plastic. Pop our panel out like that.On our passenger side, we're gonna remove this tab here. We're gonna use an 11/16 socket to remove the large bolt, and a 10 millimeter socket to remove this one. And on both frame rails, we're gonna remove the plastic plugs and the two rubber plugs. You use a flathead screwdriver or trim panel tool like I'm using here. We're gonna be using the three well nuts on both frame rails. Because they we're covered, you shouldn't have anything in the threads, but what I suggest doing is taking your hardware and hand threading it into the hole, just to make sure there's nothing stuck in there. If it is, I suggest maybe spraying some lubricant or something up in there, taking a tube brush and cleaning the threads really well.Our exhaust deflector, we need to cut it back. We're gonna measure two inches from the hinge right here back this way. And you can see how I have it marked there. I'm just gonna take a Dremel tool with a cutting blade on it, should cut it pretty easy. Then we'll take a utility knife, I'm gonna clean up the edges here. This is to knock off the burrs. Now with an extra set of hands, we'll get our hitch in place. We're gonna go over our exhaust on our passenger side. We're gonna use a hex bolt, conical tooth washer to make sure the teeth are facing towards the hitch. We're gonna get one in on each side, to hold our hitch in place. We're gonna use the same combination of hardware for all six holes, three holes on each frame rail. Then we're gonna tighten and torque all of our hardware to specifications in the instructions.Next, we need to trim our underbody panel for our driver's side. What you want to do is turn it upside down like this, or . this is actually the way it's gonna be installed. We're gonna follow these rib lines right here. We're gonna go on the inside of this rib line, we're gonna come on the inside of this one, over, and then up. Now your directions are gonna show you going straight up from here, and this hole, they're showing it way over here, so what we're gonna do is we're gonna come up, and we're gonna go beside that hole, because we don't want to lose that attachment point. That's for the front, or for the most rear part of this panel. For the back part of the panel, or the front part of the panel, we're gonna go down three inches, and then over four inches right in this corner. Then again we'll clean off the burrs, just kind of clean it up a little bit.Now we'll test fit our underbody panel, and make any necessary adjustments. Looks like everything's fitting good. We'll go ahead and reinstall our fasteners. Once you've reinstalled your underbody panel, you can reinstall your spare tire, and you're ready to go.That'll do it for looking at an installation of a Curt class three trailer hitch receiver on a 2019 Toyota Highlander.

I chose this product primarily based on two things: 1) it did not protrude from the bumper, and 2) the installation did not require re-positioning of the muffler. The shipping time was great, ordered on the 8th, received it on the 10th in Atlanta, Ga. It is very well built and I do not anticipate any problems with it. The on-line video showed everything I needed to know on how to install it. It was well worth the time spent watching it. The receiver was a bit cumbersome to install it by myself, if I had another person, as recommended, it would have been a breeze. In all, I am very pleased with the product. 486017

etrailer is amazing. Great prices and products. Easy to navigate the web site to attain the right parts. Fast shipping. Video directions of installation are spot on. I installed the hitch myself. Hitch fit perfect and is well made and solid. Well packaged for shipping, arrived with no scratches or marks. Can’t beat the price. Also used the Curt wiring harness. Simple plug in and done. Couldn’t have been easier. This is the third hitch I have purchased from etrailer. I wouldn’t waste my time anywhere else. 574142

This was the 4th hitch that I installed. As typical, the hardest part was getting the plastic covers detached and modified to allow them to be remounted after the hitch was installed. The suggested places to cut could have been a little more clear. I would recommend trying to mount the plastic before cutting to ensure you minimize your cut and make it a clean cut. All told it took me 55 minutes from the time I backed the Highlander into the garage until it was completed and driven away. The instructions on how to take the plastic covers off were a little confusing as it sounded like they wanted me to take off the low bumper molding which thankfully did not need to come off at all. Now that I look back at them, they make more sense. All part of the fun. 200884

I installed this hitch on my 2018 Highlander. If you follow instructions its a very simple installation. My only advice would be to make the cutouts smaller they were larger then needed. Other then that excellent all the way!! 562534

Installed last night. Planning on hauling a small camper and occasional bike rack. Just followed the convenient video etrailer has on how to install it on a 2018 Highlander. The enclosed instructions are useful as well as they show where to trim some of the under body panels to fit. The only difference is my car did not have a tow hook to remove. I did it myself using a pair of ramps to hold it in place while I threaded the bolts, but it would have be A LOT easier with two people. As the video states it does stick out the back maybe a 1/4". Always feels nice to buy American. 554153

Super easy install of the C13200 on my 2018 Highlander Limited. I reviewed the videos for installing hitch and harness. They were well done and missed nothing. I set the hitch on an overturned 5 gallon bucket and was able to easily start the bolts on each side without a second set of hands. I marked and cut the panels with a fresh blade in a utility knife. The plastic panels are just soft enough. I did not have to take the spare down but I do see where you would need to tilt it when raising and lowering it into place. One suggestion for the folks at e-trailer: put your decals on straight if you'd like me to advertise for you. Mine was slapped on crooked and creased so I took it off. You do a great job on everything else! This was the second time I've bought a hitch from you and am completely happy with your products and service. Oh, and wiring harness was a cinch, too! 572172

I ordered my 2015 Toyota Highlander XLE with the factory tow package specifically to carry heavy loads on the tow hitch. I have a power wheelchair, which combined with the weight of the electric lift brings the total to a little below the factory specs. Unfortunately, I found after several months that the hitch had bent under the weight and needed replacement. My Toyota dealer did not quibble about the failure, but the service tech speculated that because of the dynamics of my load while underway a replacement factory hitch would probably fail again. He offered to install an aftermarket hitch of my choice without charge for labor, though I paid for the replacement. I chose the Curt C13200. This hitch is noticeably more robust than the factory item and has performed flawlessly since it was installed. I have carried the powerchair from California to Florida and back without, well, a hitch. We have also towed a small toy hauler up from Arizona with no qualms about the hitch's strength or fitness for the task. I'm not complaining about the factory hitch. It simply was not designed for the kinds of forces exerted by heavy, standalone platforms plugged into the receiver. The Curt hitch was. I would not hesitate to recommend this hitch, in fact I have on several occasions. 247588

The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver was easy to install and looks great. I had never installed a hitch before and it went really quick and was straightforward. I looked at the other hitch options available and felt this hitch did the best job of blending in with the vehicle, as if it had been there sense day one. 184070

Great product and great customer service from etrailer! I've been putting off getting a hitch receiver for a while and the time had come to stop borrowing friends trucks to haul things around. I did some research and after watching the install video online, I decided there was no reason to pay someone to do this install. As expected, it was relatively easy (especially when someone else helps hold the hitch up while you start the bolts). The receive does stick down below the bumper slightly (as accurately shown in their product gallery) but not as bad as some of the other models out there. Based on the combination of price and visual appeal, you can't go wrong with the Curt receiver. I also bought the wiring kit from etrailer and installation was a breeze! One note to future customers watch the etrailer install videos. They are extremely thorough and will make the installation of whatever you decide to buy much easier! 239178

Attaching this hitch to my 2014 Toyota Highlander LE Plus was pretty straight forward. It is much easier to have a second set of hands. I attached the hitch by myself. I had a couple of stands to help me. I was fortunate because I have access to a car lift which made the installation very convenient. The only issue I had with the installation instructions was the section where they tell you to trim the driver side panel. The instructions tell you to trim off way more than you need to. The only cutting that needs to be done is a 1” wide cut from the back of the panel to around 2” past the existing hole in the panel (See photo). For placement of the cut compare the panel to the hitch bracket. As for function… I have not attached anything to the receiver yet. 151867

I'm 77 years old and if I can put this hitch on my 2016 Highlander by myself I believe anybody can do it. I did it without a lift lying on my back on the garage floor. One thing I would suggest is to remove the spare tire (as I did) to make more room to work. When the plastic cover and the plugs and all the prep work was accomplished I laid the spare tire on its side with several pieces of wood on top to prop up the drivers side while I worked the hitch over the muffler exhaust on the passenger side. Since I was working on my back I had placed the trailer hitch on my feet and worked it up to my stomach to support it and after lining it up was able to start a bolt on the drivers side and then on the exhaust side. Once the weight of the hitch was supported by these two bolts the rest was easy. I used my Dremel tool and bench knife to trim the plastic covers per directions. I am very pleased with how the hitch fits and looks on my Highlander. I was concerned initially it would show to much and not look good. I was wrong....I fits and looks great. Since I was working alone I was unable to take pictures of the process. 561422

I installed the trailer hitch and wiring kit to our 2014 Toyota Highlander. Since I am 69 my wife insisted that my son help. I did the "prep work" getting the car up on improvised "ramps" (2x12 and a 4x4) under each rear wheel. I (my son) had no problems installing the hitch. Taking off the Toyota trim parts was "interesting", the panel under the drivers side of the car had 3 different types of fasteners, but that is a Toyota issue. As for the wiring kit I did that myself. One question I had was, why 3 fuses of different physical sizes when only 2 are required. The suggestion I have is on the wiring kit, the fuse holder that is attached to the module should have longer wires (maybe 9-12inches) so it could be routed to a place where replacement would not involve taking off 2 awkward to remove panels. Also the ground wire if about 2 inches longer it would reach to a convenient grounding place. And lastly the module is supposed to be attached to a "flat surface" inside the car, there are no flat surfaces, so I used the extra zip ties to hold the module to the cars wiring harness so it doesn't flop around. 188173

All the people at etrailer.com were very helpful and the shipment was delivered on time and in good condition with all required parts included. After viewing several installation video’s, I decided to perform the installation myself because the procedure was so well documented. The only problem I encountered was a miss alignment of the forward mounting holes on both sides of the hitch. The other 4 bolts were at the extreme end of the adjustment slot but I was able to install them by hand. To install the remaining 2 bolts, I fabricated a spreader device and was able to widen the brackets about ¼” which allowed the 2 remaining bolts to be inserted. Working alone this proved to be a challenging task and is the reason why I rated this product with only 4 stars. 571518


Comments
The mounting flanges on a trailer hitch are designed for straight line strength, but not necessarily lateral strength. The flanges are purposely designed to have some give in them, so that if they get flexed during shipping, they can be easily bent back into place. As long as the powder coat didnt crack and there arent any cracks in the mounting flange itself, the hitch will work perfectly after being bent back into place. Ill link you to a help article that shows a few different ways of manipulating the hitch back into place.

The hitch receiver is very well constructed, arrived on time and in perfect condition. All parts and instructions for installation were included. Installation was straightforward and quickly accomplished. Useful to have a helper to hold up one side while fitting bolts to the other - but one person could make it work. Also purchased a wiring harness that was simple and quick to install. Everything was completed within an hour. This was our second hitch from e-trailer - perfect product and service each time. 134997

I had to modify the instructions slightly. My vehicle is a 2015 Highlander, XLE. Installation was not difficult. Most of the time was spended on trimming the drivers side underbody panel to my liking. Passenger side trim don't have to be remove. On the metal facial tab, only remove the existing m12 bolt. I removed the bolts holding the muffler to give me easier access because this was a one man installation. Follow the rest of the information. Shipping was done fast and the vendor was always helpful providing information. 183266

I also have a 2015 XLE. Did you have it on a rack or did you crawl underneath?Did you need to use torque wrenches or were good standard socket wrenches okay?Did all the attachment bolts come with the kit?

Five Stars! I leased a new 2015 Toyota Highlander a few months ago and completely forgot to negotiate the trailer hitch install, so I went to Toyota and they wanted $466.00! I shopped around town and got similar quotes. The best quote was from the local U-Haul dealer and I was ready to have them do the install in a few days. But then, the "little voice inside" suggested I do a search online and found Etrailer.com and reviewed the three different models of trailer hitches you offered for my rig. After the reviews, I was convinced the "CURT" Brand you offer was the one I wanted. This is a leased vehicle and I wanted to get the best fit possible. I realized I could not control the type of hitch U-Haul would install so my best option was to getr' done myself and save the money as well! I had not even considered buying and installing a trailer hitch for my SUV but the high quality detailed install videos you provided took all the "mystery" away about doing the install myself. The hitch arrived in perfect condition in a few days with free shipping and was glad to see you took the extra time to tape the wiring harness box to the inside of the large box to make sure it remained with the package. The install went perfect, saved a bunch, and very happy about the entire transaction with Etrailer.com. 244225

Very good delivery time, 2 days. I put in on my 2017 Highlander the day I received it. It took about an hour and a half. Now that I have done it, it probably would only take an hour. The fit was good and it looks good. I have not used it yet, but I feel it will do the job. My dealer wanted $1,200 to put a Toyota hitch on, I am very happy with the price I paid to etrailer and it shipped free. 427836

I originally shopped for the the Toyota OEM hitch for its tidy appearance. It is too expensive and I did not want to spend time disassembling and cutting the bumper. The OEM wiring kit is also unnecessarily complicated. My neighbor recently had a Draw Tite installed which was nearly as tidy as the OEM hitch, so I came to etrailer.com to shop for one. Then, I saw this Curt at a much lower price with a higher tongue weight capacity, so I ordered one. I installed it myself in one morning, taking my time to not hurt myself or the SUV. I also took time to Loctite the bolts. The suggestions and pictures of others to not trim as much from the underbody panels was very helpful and easy to do with a bare hacksaw blade. I initially thought the more visible cross bar would detract from the appearance, but after installation, I find that it actually adds a nice little bit of visual mass to the rear, as you can generally see under the bumper to the suspension components which is not particularly attractive. The way the tube is bent down without exposing the end plates is much cleaner than the Draw-Tite Max Frame, while still providing the same tongue weight capacity. I made a couple of calls to customer service before buying and received very thoughtful answers and input. I purchased and installed a T-One wiring harness which was FAR easier than I thought thanks to the very well done install video. I like the T-One over the Curt for the simple reason that the Curt kit requires drilling a hole for the ground wire, and I hate doing that. One thing I did differently than the install video was I cut a small hole in the bumper side of the underfloor tray to poke the hitch wire AND the in-line fuse holder through, to ensure access to change the fuse without having to take out the whole tray. I once tried to rent an old rental trailer with my minivan and some sort of short blew the fuse. Because it was easily accessible behind a removable panel, I was able to diagnose and change it easily. So, I wanted to make sure this fuse would be similarly accessible. Thanks etrailer! 551028

I got the trailer hitch & wiring kit yesterday and installed both on my 2014 Highlander in about 4 hours. It was fairly straightforward, but a couple of things should be noted. The fuse box under the hood requires a 30 amp fuse for the trailer, you supplied a 10 amp however the converter has a 10 amp fuse. I had a 30 amp fuse so I just installed it in the empty slot for the trailer circuit. Another thing is that if you wish to continue to use the existing tow hook bracket the bolts supplied are not long enough but I simply discarded the bracket as the trailer hitch itself can be used for this purpose. I also wish there was a more convenient way to route the 4-conductor flat plug for the trailer outside instead of just laying it over the rear deck and closing it. It would be helpful to have two people to lift and hold the hitch while bolting it to the body but I did it myself by using wood blocks on one side while putting the bolts in on the other side. Other than that, the hitch looks great, and is heavy enough for my utility trailer and perhaps greater loads. I'd buy it again. 220762

    The Curt Trailer Hitch # C13200 will not fit a 2019 Toyota Highlander with a full-size spare that has an aluminum rim because the rim on this spare is just too wide for the hitch to be able to fit.

  • Comparing the Thule, Yakima, and SportRack Swinging Bike Racks for a 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid
    The compatibility of the bikes rack that you listed is going to be dependent on what trailer hitch you have installed on your 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid. That said, most of them do not sit too far behind the bumper so you should not have any issues with this. If you don't already have a trailer hitch, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13200 which I can confirm will work with the Yakima FullSwing 4 Bike Rack part # Y02465, the Thule Apex Swing XT 4 Bike Rack part # TH9027XT,...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver and Wiring for 2018 Toyota Highlander XLE
    I was able to confirm with the manufacturer that the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13200 is a fit for your 2018 Toyota Highlander XLE. For your trailer wiring, if you don't have the OEM 4-way, you need the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # C56217. This custom-fit T-connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness. The connection point for the 4-way tow harness is located behind the interior trim panel in your...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness for 2017 Toyota Highlander XLE
    For your 2017 Toyota Highlander XLE I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13394 if you like a square crossbar or the # C13200 for a round crossbar. These work whether you have the factory tow package or not. For your wiring, you will want to call a dealer with your VIN and they can tell you if you have the tow package or not. If you have the tow package then you will use Curt # 56042 and I've attached a photo of the connection point behind the...

  • Where Should I Take A 2018 Toyota Highlander To Have a Curt Hitch Installed
    I would love to recommend a shop for you to use to install the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13200 but this is not a service we offer. Although I cannot recommend an exact shop, I can tell you that the type of shop with the most experience installing trailer hitches is going to be an RV service center. Therefore, I recommend you reach out to a trusted RV service center in your area for installation. The professional install time is listed as 60 minutes so you can expect to pay about...

  • How to Select Weight Distribution System for Horse Trailer
    For your 2018 Toyota Highlander, the Curt hitch that fits is # C13200 and this hitch is compatible with weight distribution systems. It has an 8,000 lb towing capacity and 900 lb tongue weight capacity when used with a weight distribution system, which gives us a good idea of the system you need. In order to choose the best weight distribution system you will first need to know your total tongue weight (TTW), which is the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to go trailer plus...

  • How to Determine if a 2013 Toyota Highlander Limited Can Tow a Trailer with a 5,250 lb GVWR
    If you have a 5,000 lb trailer towing weight capacity for your 2013 Toyota Highlander Limited and you will not be filling your tanks before traveling then you should be okay. The difference between your dry trailer weight and the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) is 2,685 lbs. Since the GVWR is the max weight that your 2007 Fleetwood Pegasus Ultralite can weigh that means you have to take a lot of cargo with you. Be sure to check your owner's manual to ensure that you do have a trailer...

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch # C13200 Interfere With Spare Tire On 2015 Toyota Highlander
    The spare tire on your 2015 Highlander will not have a problem with the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C13200 installed. I have attached a photo of the underside of a Highlander with the hitch installed. As you can see in the photo the hitch does sit below the edge of the tire so if you need to remove the spare you will need to tilt the front of the tire to remove it.

  • Fit and Installation of Curt Class III Hitch C13200 on 2017 Toyota Highlander

  • Is Install of Curt Hitch on 2016 Toyota Highlander Difficult
    The install of the Curt hitch part # C13200 for your 2016 Toyota Highlander isn't too bad. If you check out the install video link I attached below you can see the entire process outlined. You don't have to use a jack to lift the rear of the vehicle in the air either. We use a lift to make filming the process easier is all. You'll need a ratchet, a torque wrench, 10, 17, and 19 mm sockets, a 6 inch socket extension, a screw driver, something to trim the fascia with (dremel or rotary...
