Video Transcript for Curt Trailer Hitch Installation - 2019 Chevrolet Colorado

Shane: Hi, I'm Shane with etrailer.com. Today you're going to be taking a look at, I'm going to walk you through the installation on the Curt Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver on your 2019 Chevrolet Colorado. This hitch is great, whether you want to put on a bike rack, maybe a cargo carrier. Or maybe you just bought a trailer, or maybe even a camper, and you're wanting to haul it somewhere. This hitch is going to work out great for hauling all of those items.It's going to be a class III hitch, two-inch by two-inch receiver tube opening. Reinforced collar, give us a little bit extra stability there.

Hitch pin hole's going to be 5/8ths inch in diameter. It's going to take a standard 5/8ths hitch pin. Hitch pin and clip does not come with this hitch. However, it can be found here at etrailer.com. One thing that's going to set this hitch apart from others, because a lot of them, either they have rolled steal style on the bottom of our receiver tube or it's a plate-style on the bottom.These go up and down.

The benefit of having that is if we have any locking devices, maybe for any rail devices we may want to get, our safety chain hooks are not going to interfere with that. Some of the other ones, some of them can be kind of big so that's going to limit you to different size safety chain hooks. With this, we don't have to worry about it, our safety chain loops are very large openings so it's going to accommodate very large safety chain hooks also.Now as far as our weight capacities go, we're going to have a 900 pound max tongue weight, which is the downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube. So, if we're pulling that larger trailer, we want to make sure we're not exceeding that downward pressure on the bottom of that tube. Trailer wight's going to be 6000 pounds, that's trailer plus load, included.

Now, as far as weight distribution, you can use weight distribution with this hitch.Tongue weight's going to stay the same at 900 pounds. Trailer weight's going to go up to 8000 pounds. I always recommend checking the owners manual of your Colorado. Make sure the vehicle can withstand that amount of weight, you're going to pick the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch.Now, as far as how this looks on the back of the vehicle. You'll notice, without anything loaded, the cross tube is completely hidden behind our bumper fascia.

The only thing we can really see is our receiver tube. So, it's really going to maintain a nice clean look on the back of this vehicle.Now, let me give you a few measurements to help you on deciding on any of those hitch mount accessories you may need, such as a bike rack, a ball mount, or cargo carrier. From the center of our hitch pin hole to the outermost part of the bumper is going to be about two-inches. That number's important for any of those hitch mount accessories that may fold up against your vehicle.From the ground to the top innermost part of your receiver tube, it's going to be about 19-inches. Keep that number in mind for any of those hitch mount accessories that may require a little bit more ground clearance. Now that we've gone over some of the features, let's show you how to get it installed.It's a good idea to go ahead and remove your spare tire to make it a little bit easier. We're going to take a 13-millimeter socket. We're going to have a bracket right here on the underside for our spare tire. We're going to remove the four bolts and pull that bracket down. Take a flat head screwdriver to these two clips. We're going to pull them off. Just like that. Then you're going to take a couple of jack stands. If you're doing it on the ground regular jack stands will work. Put it underneath the corner of your bumper on each side, then you're going to take a strap and you're going to have a bracket that runs up from your bumper, up to the outside of the frame rail or beside it, that's got some holes in it. You're going to hook one of your hooks of that strap in one of those holes.Other side, you're going to strap it through the hole on the outside of your frame rail, up a little bit farther. Go ahead and strap it. Don't pull it real, real tight, you just want to snug it up. Because what we're going to do is we're going to remove the bolts holding our bumper in place so we can get this one down and then we'll put our other bolts right back in. Then on our driver's side, right on the inside here, we're going to take this wiring off of that factory hitch. Just pull it off just like that. Then we can start removing our bolts.Whatever we do from here on out is going to be the same on both sides of the vehicle. We're going to take a 21-millimeter socket, we're going to remove these two bolts on the bottom. And then we're going to have two up here on the side. However, when we take these two out, we'll pull this down and we'll put these two on the side right back in. Those are the two that are actually holding the bumper in place. Now with an extra set of hands, we're going to take our two bolts out from each side of our frame rail. Again, make sure you have your bumper supported here.Slide our factory hitch out. Set it aside. And then we're going to reinstall the bolts we just took out back into our factory bumper bracket and into the frame rail. And once you have your factory hardware put back in place in your bumper, you can remove your straps and you can remove your jack stands. We're going to get an extra set of hands. We're going to put our hitch into place, and we're going to reinstall our factory hardware. We're going to tighten all of our hardware and then torque it to the specification in the instructions.Take our spare tire bracket, we're going to install the clips onto the bracket. You want to make sure that the top side or this side is facing up. Reinstall that onto our new hitch using the factory hardware. Once you've reinstalled your spare tire bracket, you've got all your hardware tightened down, reinstall your spare tire. And you're ready to go.Again, I'm Shane with etrailor.com. I hope this video's helped you, whether you're still deciding or installing the Curt Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver on your 2019 Chevrolet Colorado.

etrailer Team, The installation was a little hard since I am by my own and working on the floor, but the outcome is great, the same with the electric installation, easy and simple; I believe that the quality is more than good because the difference of weight in between the original and the etrailer hitch is big. In my case I am going to use it with light weight stuff. 634347

I received this hitch much earlier than expected.....great shipping....My son and I took on this project today.....I'm 67 and my son is 28....you will need some young muscle....lol....we are just DIY people......we watched the vids and we had no problem....our problem was we were just using hand tools.....breaker bars and ratchets.....this is labor intensive with hand tools, but not bad...just be ready to take a break......our only problem was the spare tire bar......DO lower the spare and loosen all the bolts .......we did have to manipulate the bumper to get all the bolts to line up but wasn't much of a problem.....they say DIY should take about 1 hour or more....we did it in and hour and a half....and we took a break in between to hydrate....I'm in deep S. Texas....all in all....pretty easy peasy with the right tools and at least two guys. 673389

Went on pretty easy definitely recommend using a powerful impact driver, and a beefy breaker bar. Overall the product seems well built, much stronger then the original factory tow bar. 725916

As always, product came early, thank you. The hardest part about installing this trailer hitch was getting the spare tie down. Soooo it wasn't hard. I did it myself, but another guy would have made it easier. 695346

etrailer has and will always be my go to. Awesome people to do business with and my orders are always on point with the best content and assistance around. However they did not say anything about removing my bumper from my truck to install the new hitch. Had I known it wouldn’t have made a difference because “it is what it is” however I would have purchased a different product that was better and noted that hitch removal was required. 692058

Excellent product at a good price along with free fast shipping make this deal hard to beat. A installation video along with printed instructions really helped. Would I recommend etrailer?

Hitch looks good and is functional. Hardest part was breaking the factory mounted bolts loose. I had to get a breaker bar. Also the Factory Crossmember has "vertical wings" where it mounts to the side of frame and the hitch does not. I had to get some large washers to re-install the bumper in order to adjust for the lack of "wings". I got this in order to mount a bicycle rack. It saves me from putting several bikes in the bed when we go to a different location 586428

its works too nice but I did had trouble installing it because the bolts that came with the hitch were too big 498253


Comments
Juan, thank you for your review. Underneath your vehicle, the frame is constantly exposed to dirt and grime that can harden over time. When this happens sometimes it will feel like the bolt will not thread into your weld nuts in the frame. The good news is you can clean out the weld nuts in your frame to get your bolts to thread. I have attached a link that will help you with this.

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch

  • How To Find Out How Much Can Be Loaded On a 4x8 Utility Trailer
    The only way to determine how much you can load on a trailer is to look for the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR), which is usually on a plaque near the tongue. This figure will represent the most the trailer can weigh while fully loaded. Therefore, the weight of the trailer plus the weight of your motorcycle cannot exceed that of the trailer's GVWR. The 8" load range C tires that you have are likely rated between a 745 lbs to 935 lbs (per tire). These tires accompanied with the 2,000...

  • Is the Spare Tire Support Bracket Removed For Installation of Curt Hitch on 2018 Chevrolet Colorado
    The spare tire support bracket is already attached to the frame of the 2018 Chevy Colorado LT so the Curt hitch part # C13203 does not come with the spare tire support bracket. Basically the installation instructions have you remove the spare tire support bracket from the existing crossmember of the frame and then reattach it to a bracket on the back of the hitch. The completed installation photos show the support bracket because it is re-installed during installation. The crossmember...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2017 GMC Canyon
    In addition to the trailer hitch # C13203 for your 2017 GMC Canyon I also recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If the ball mount kit does not have the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, use the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver, Ball Mount, And Wiring For 2017 Chevy Colorado
    Yes. You will want the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Class III - 2", # C13203, for your 2017 Chevy Colorado. This is a bolt on installation that requires temporary removal of bumper during installation. If you will be using this trailer hitch receiver for towing, I recommend the etrailer.com Ball Mount Kit for 2" Hitches - 7,500 lbs, # 989900. This will give you two different ball mounts with different rise or drop along with two hitch balls and the pin and clip. If you prefer an...

  • Is There a Kayak Carrier that Fits on Adarac Aluminum Series Crossbars
    I have a solution that will allow you to carry a kayak carrier on the 1-1/2 inch square crossbars of the Adarac Aluminum Series ladder racks. The Yakima HullyRoller Kayak Carrier part # Y04035 can be installed on crossbars up to 1-1/2 inches in height if you use the Universal MightyMounts # Y03590. The HullyRoller allows kayaks to sit flat on the crossbars as well.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System with Sway Control for 26 foot long Trailer with 5200 lb GVWR
    For your 2015 GMC Canyon, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13203. Then for your weight distribution system to help with sag and sway, I recommend the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Clamp On # BXW0750. This system will do a very good job of controlling sway and is a better option than the Fastway system in my opinion. For a 2 inch diameter hitch ball I recommend # A-90. For a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball I recommend # 19286.
