2019 Nissan Pathfinder

I ordered the hitch and it was delivered quicker than I anticipated. It came in a box that had a few holes in it. Turns out the hardware and instructions were missing from the box. I called customer service and they were very friendly and helpful. They sent replacement hardware and instructions and I received the replacements the day after I called them at no extra charge. 734496

2018 Nissan Pathfinder

Installed on a 2018 Pathfinder. Perfect fit, nice "factory" look. Very beefy, well-made two bar. I did not have help but by hooking the passenger side over the muffler it held it enough to get a driver's side bolt started. 714146

2016 Nissan Pathfinder

Very nice hitch. Powercoat is nice and thick so corrosion won't be an issue. I tried to order one that would fit in the factory opening in the bumper ,but as you can see it fits below with some minor trimming. 693080

2018 Nissan Pathfinder

This class 3 hitch came on time, good price. It's going on a 2018 Nissan Pathfinder, not exactly a tow-truck but primarily to be used to mount a bike rack. The hitch is extremely sturdy and well built with good powder coat paint. I'd buy it from you again. 476456

  • How to Mount a 7-Way Connector on a 2017 Nissan Pathfinder with the Curt Hitch # C13309
    If you were to install the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13309 on your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder then you would need to mount the Curt T-Connector # C56357 directly to your rear bumper fascia using the mounting bracket # PK12711U. To avoid this you can use the Curt Easy Mount Bracket # C58000 instead. Since the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 76031 does sit below the rear bumper fascia you would be able to use the no-drill mounting bracket # C57202 along with the part # PK12711U. The Curt...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness for 2017 Nissan Pathfinder
    The trailer hitch I highly recommend for your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder is the Curt # C13309 because it has a concealed crosstube and is a bolt-on installation that will not require drilling into your vehicle's frame to install. This Class III, 2" trailer hitch is almost entirely hidden behind your bumper, has a black powder coat finish to protect it from corrosion and also has a 6,000 lb towing capacity and 600 lb tongue weight capacity. The Curt # C13309 is made in the USA and comes with...

  • Comparison of Draw-Tite and Curt Trailer Hitch Receivers for a 2017 Nissan Pathfinder
    I prefer the Curt, part # C13309, over the Draw-Tite, part # 76031, for a trailer hitch receiver on your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder. I like how the Curt hitch is mostly hidden behind the rear bumper and the only part you see is the receiver opening and safety chain loops. With the Draw-Tite you can see part of the crosstube under the bumper. Although, it doesn't require any fascia trimming and the price is better. I've linked a video from when we installed the Draw-Tite on a Pathfinder...

  • Comparing Curt and etrailer.com Hitch for 2018 Nissan Pathfinder
    Curt actually makes the etrailer.com hitches like the part # e98908 that you referenced which is why it's basically identical to the Curt # C13309 that fits your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder. It is a somewhat new hitch line we started offering but not brand new. This means that the install video for the Curt (attached to this page) would cover the install of the # e98908 as well. The hands free liftgate of your Pathfinder will still work but you just would have to kick your foot to either...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for Max Towing Capacity on 2018 Nissan Pathfinder
    I took a look at the online version of the owner's manual for your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder and it states that the vehicle has a maximum towing capacity of 6,000 pounds. I do recommend verifying this in your copy of the manual as well. For a trailer hitch that will work perfectly I recommend the Curt Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13309 which has a 6,000 pound capacity to match the Pathfinder's limits and a nice hidden crosstube design where only the 2 inch receiver will be visible....

  • Trailer Hitch for 2018 Nissan Pathfinder That Has Discrete Appearance
    We offer two brands of 2-inch Class III hitches for your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder, and one of these, the Curt # C13309, is designed with a concealed cross tube that lets the vehicle keep more of its stock appearance. The included photo shows you the Curt hitch installed. The other hitch, Draw-Tite # 76031, offers slightly easier installation but it will be more visible once installed. For a clean and discrete appearance the USA-made Curt hitch wins. The written instructions and a helpful...

  • Are Trailer Hitches Checked Before Shipping?
    Before a hitch is shipped we do check for paint being chipped off and one is never sent with chipped paint so rest assured the hitch you get will leave our warehouse in perfect condition. For a hitch to use on your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder I highly recommend going with the Draw-Tite # 76031 because it will not require any trimming of the fascia during installation like the option from Curt # C13309 will. You can power your trailer's lights by adding a 4-flat to your Pathfinder with the...

  • Towing a Trailer and Carrying Bikes at the Same Time with a 2018 Nissan Pathfinder
    There are ways to accomplish what you want but there are some other things to think about first. The most important thing to consider for your situation is how much rise or drop you need to tow the trailer level. Because if an adapter is used (or even if it isn't) then the ball mount has to have the right amount of rise or drop to tow the trailer level. So if we look at the available hitches the one that will provide the most ground clearance is # C13309 (excludes platinum models)....

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for 2018 Nissan Pathfinder
    The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder is the Curt hitch part # C13309 because it has plenty of towing capacity, is made in the USA, and has a concealed crosstube which means it will be less visible than most hitches. For trailer wiring I'd then recommend the Tekonsha 4-Way part # 118670 which comes with all of the needed relays and harnesses to install without requiring any splicing. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well. Since...

  • Can the Curt # C13309 Trailer Hitch be Installed on a 2018 Nissan Pathfinder with Liftgate Sensors
    Yes, you can install the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13309 on your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder even though it has the kick liftgate sensors. The only potential difference is that you may just have to kick to the left or right of the receiver instead of just waving your foot beneath the bumper. There is some minor fascia trimming that needs to take place and the driver side tow hook will need to be removed to install the trailer hitch, but Curt has only rated the install a 5 out of 10 for...

  • Installing a Hitch on a 2017 Nissan Pathfinder SL with Motion Liftgate Sensor
    The Curt Class III Trailer Hitch, # C13309, is confirmed to fit your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder. My contact at Curt confirmed with me that the hitch will not interfere with the relay that is located at under the bumper. The hands free lift gate feature will still be enabled after installation of the Curt hitch. However if you're trying to activate it with your foot directly under the hitch receiver opening it probably won't work. Just keep your foot to the side of the receiver tube and...

  • Trailer Wiring Kit and Hitch Recommendation for 2019 Nissan Pathfinder
    For a 4-way trailer wiring harness for your 2019 Nissan Pathfinder I recommend the # 118670 which installs very easily and comes with everything needed to give you the 4-way you'll need to tow your pop up. I attached an install video for this on a similar 2018 Pathfinder. If you needed a hitch too the Curt Class III part # C13309 is a really great option too. It has plenty of capacity and is mostly hidden since only the hitch opening hangs below the rear bumper.

  • How To Mount A 7-Way Connector On A 2019 Nissan Pathfinder With The Curt Hitch C13309
    To install a 7 -Way connector you will need the T-connector and mounting bracket compatible with your 2019 Nissan Pathfinder. I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package # 118273 as a simple, plug and play solution that does not require splicing of wires to install. The 2 connectors are found usually in the far rear drivers side compartment. The Mounting Bracket and Installation Hardware # PK12711U will then help in providing a clean look for your 7-Way...

  • Bracket for Mounting 7-Way Install on 2019 Nissan Pathfinder with Curt Hitch
    Since the Curt hitch part # C13309 that fits your 2019 Nissan Pathfinder doesn't have a trailer wiring bracket (none of the hitches for your vehicle do) the best options is to use a bracket # PK12711U attached to the lower rear fascia so that you can easily mount the 7-way kit that also fits your vehicle part # C56357. I attached a picture that shows what the wiring connectors look like at the rear of your vehicle as well.

  • How to Mount 7-Way Connector to Hidden Curt Hitch C13309 on 2019 Nissan Pathfinder
    With the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13309 installed on your 2019 Nissan Pathfinder, which as you mentioned features a hidden crosstube that stays tucked behind the rear bumper, you will just need to mount the 7-Way bracket directly to the bumper fascia using something like the Pollak # PK12711U. If you'd rather not bolt anything directly into the fascia, another good option is with the Curt Easy Mount Bracket # C58000. This will attach directly to the hitch receiver on the Curt...

  • Best Trailer Hitch for 2019 Nissan Pathfinder
    Hands down the best trailer hitch for your 2019 Nissan Pathfinder is the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 76031 over the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13309 because it has the better clearances as well as the easier installation. The Draw-Tite hitch has better ground clearance than the Curt, has better bumper clearance, and does not require either lowering the spare tire to install or trimming the fascia under the bumper, which are both steps necessary to install the Curt hitch. I have added links...

  • How To Mount A 7-Way Connector On A 2019 Nissan Pathfinder With The Curt Hitch # C13309
    That is a great question Laura! The Tekonsha 7-Way wiring harness part # 118273 can be mounted to the Curt Hitch Receiver part # C13309 using Curt Easy Mount Bracket for 4- or 5-Way Flat and 6- or 7-Way Trailer Connectors # C58000. The Curt easy mount bracket fits over the hitch receiver opening and secures around the lip with the included hardware. I have attached a photo for your reference. Otherwise you would need to use a bracket like part # PK12711U and attach it to the bumper fascia...
