Video Transcript for Curt Trailer Hitch Installation - 2018 Chevrolet Colorado

Speaker 1: Today in this 2018 Chevrolet Colorado we'll be having a look at and showing you how to install the Curt Class 3 trailer hitch receiver part number C13203. Here's what our hitch looks like installed. As you'll notice, the hitch is mostly hidden behind our back bumper, giving us a nice clean look. The end of the receiver sticks out past the bumper a little bit, so when you're installing accessories in the receiver you don't have to worry about scratching the finish on your bumper. On the end of the receiver we have this nice welded on collar, which helps give us a more finished look and helps improve the strength of the receiver opening. On the side of our receiver you'll find our industry standard 5/8 of an inch diameter hitch pin hole to secure our hitch mounted accessories.

You can pick up a pin and clip on our website as part number PC3.Now one thing that I really like about this hitch is that our safety chain attachment points are far away from the hitch pin hole. So if we're using a locking device we don't have to worry about any interference hooking up our safety chains. Even if we have a large diameter hook like this, it'll still clip on very easily without any interference. Now this is one feature that sets this hitch apart from others on the market. Makes it a little bit easier for you to use.

This hitch features a 900 pound max ton weight rating, which is the amount forcing down and a 6,000 pound max gross trailer weight rating, which is the amount it can pull. It does support the use of weight distribution and we're using that with our trailer. The ton weight rating stays the same at 900 pounds, but the max gross trailer rating increases to 8,000 pounds. You wanna make sure you consult with the owner's manual of your Colorado and not exceed what the vehicle's rated for. Go by whichever number is less.Now for a few measurements to better assist you in choosing any hitch mounted accessory you may need.

Such as a ball mount, bike rack or a cargo carrier, you're looking at about 19 1/2 inches from the ground to the top of the two inch receiver opening and about 2 1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the very most part of the back bumper. Now many of our customers have started that they found this hitch to be fairly difficult to install, but we'll show you a few things to make it quite a bit easier for you. To begin our install we went ahead and removed our spare tire. Now we need to remove our spare tire brace by removing these four 13 millimeter bolts. Now on our factory bumper hitch or bumper beam we're gonna remove these clip nuts here.

To do that let's use a flat head screwdriver to help pry 'em out and then we'll pull 'em off.Now we'll take those clip nuts and we'll transfer them to our plate that we removed earlier. This is on the back side of the plate that'll be closest to the bumper. You want the top of the nut facing up. Now we're using a couple jacks to support our bumper because we're gonna be removing the hardware that holds it in place. On the bottom we'll have two 21 millimeter bolts on each side. Keep in mind everything we do on one side we'll repeat on the other side. The only difference that we have on the driver's side is there's a wiring harness that's attached to the beam that we need to unclip before we remove it. Use a trim handle tool or flathead screwdriver and we'll pop it out, just like that.Now we have two more bolts on the side that actually holds our bumper into the frame. Our hitch goes behind that plate so we have to remove these two bolts. Now with a couple sets of extra hands we have somebody helping support the bumper, and then we have somebody supporting the hitch bracket itself that we're removing and we can remove our bolts on the side now. Here with all of our bolts removed we now carefully pull down on this, make sure our bumper stays in place and we can set that aside. Now we can reinstall our bolts in the side to hold our bumper in place so it doesn't fall. We do not need these bolts here to secure the hitch. We'll tighten those bolts back down. Now with an extra set of hands we'll raise the hitch up . And we'll secure it to the frame with the factory hardware that we removed. Now we'll tighten those bolts back down. Now we'll take our spare tire brace . And we'll reinstall it through our hitch this time.Now we'll torque all of our hardware to the amount specified in the instructions. With everything torqued down we can reinstall our spare tire. For video purposes we won't be doing it here today, but rest assured it'll fit around your hitch perfectly, even with the full size spare. That completes our look at and showing you how to install the Curt Class 3 trailer hitch receiver part number C13203 on this 2018 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

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? I bought a light package to go along with the hitch today. And because of the competitive prices along with excellent customer service, I will , in the future, shop here again! 616394

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.

The hitch fit my 2017 Colorado perfectly. The video on installation saved me some time, as the factory bumper bolts go through the factory installed hitch and need to be removed to install the curt hitch. Using just hand tools it took me about an hour to install. 355830

Everything worked great and as advertised. Hitch took longer for me but I am 69 so I had to take a lot of water breaks. Unless your name is hulk and your green don't try to install the hitch alone or with hand tools. 274526

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...
