This is a solid hitch, and overall I'm happy with it. Installation took two hours, but we were taking our time and checking every step against the installation video because this was the first hitch install for both of us. Pros: * Great appearance because the actual hitch is hidden; only the receiver tube shows. * No loss of ground clearance. * Installation video was extremely helpful: no need to take hitch to a shop for install. Cons: * Had to cut pieces out of two under-body panels. This was not a surprise, because it was in the video, but still I hate cutting pieces out of my car. * Safety chain loop interferes slightly with using wrench to secure the bike rack. * Template mentioned in the video was not included with the instructions, but they did give the dimensions so we made our own template.

Shipping was timely. Inatall would have been easier with two people but I was able to get it on there using a jack as a second hand. Fascia trimming was minimal and I did most of it with a pair of snips although I did use a fine toothed blade on a reciprocating saw

Up until now I have order 3 towing hitches & a bicycle rack for 4 bikes. I am very happy & satisfied with the way it was handled when it was ordered.

Great addition to my 2015 RAV4 to utilize Thule hitch style bike rack. Recommend watching etrailer install video before beginning work. Provided written instruction differ and the video identifies different/better rear bumper trip techniques/locations.

This receiver installed very easily. I would warn that it will require two people to manage the install. That's where a grandson and his friend come in handy. Instructions were very clear with lots of pictures. I bought this for my Toyota Rav 4. I also purchased a Scooter/wheelchair carrier and it also fit perfectly. It will lay horizontally or vertically. I am disabled and got tired of trying to lift my scooter into the trunck. The carrier had a 60 inch fold up ramp which makes very easy to "walk-up" the scooter into the carrier. Thanks etrailer for the assistance in ordering and the price.

Perfect EXCEPT do NOT tighten bolts to 86 lbs . The bolts can handle but the nuts ca not. I had to have the nuts drilled and tapped to 22 mm and tightened everything to 65 lbs. We used two torque wrenches that were recently calibrated. Other than that problem the product would be 5 stars. I am pleased with the product and etrailer.

I haven't installed the hitch yet. I love the way etrailer.com helps you find the right hitch. Alexis was very helpful. they didn't have a wiring harness because of covid 19 hard to get items, but told me if I couldn't find one call her back. I found one at U Haul so everything worked out fine. Thanks for your company going the extra mile for the customer.

Box was damaged upon deliver, with the hitch sticking out of the box. A bolt was missing as well. Customer service was very helpful and delivered a new bolt. The video definitely made the installation look easier than it actually was and it left out a step in getting the hitch on under the plastic trim.



- C13406

The hitch is well built and solid. However, it came with a number of dings and chips in the powder coat, looks like it's due to rough shipping/handling - reason for the 4 star review. I would wrap these up a little more and watch the large staples on the inside of the box. Other than that, great product and timely shipping. Customer service was very good! Any problems?,...just call them, they know what they're doing and are very friendly.

  • Differences Between Curt C13149 and C13406 Class III Hitches for 2017 Toyota RAV4
    Either Curt Class III hitch would be a fit for your 2017 Toyota RAV4, the difference between the two is their appearance once they're installed. The # C13149, is a traditional hitch, where the entire crossbar would be visible from the rear of the vehicle. The # C13406 is a concealed design, where the crossbar would be concealed behind the bumper fascia, with only the receiver tube and safety chain loops being visible. In terms of how they'd perform, The concealed model has a lower tongue...

  • Is Curt Hitch # C13406 a Solid Choice for 2017 Toyota RAV4
    The Curt hitch you mentioned # C13406 is a newer design for your 2017 Toyota RAV4 which is why we don't have any install videos or pictures for it at this time. It's a really solid design so we know it will work great and it's so similar to the install of the Draw Tite # 76134 that you could use it's install video as a guide basically.

  • What is Required for Trimming the Panel on my 2018 Toyota Rav4 to Fit the Curt Hitch
    When trimming for the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13406 I generally use a razor knife. As you can see in the linked video my buddy Ryan used some snips to do the trimming. There really is nothing you can see in passing after installation unless you really bend own and look for it specifically. Again this can be seen in the video Ryan did. It is on a 2016 model but it is the same installation process. If you're going to be hauling the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with...

    In order to tow a trailer with a 2018 Toyota RAV4 (All Models Including Hybrid) you'll need to start with a trailer hitch and for this I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13406 because of the hidden design which also offers bolt-on installation. This can then be paired with the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector part # 118578 which is our most reliable option and plug-in-play.

    According to Curt, their # C13406 Class III hitch is a confirmed fit for all models of the 2016 Rav4, including the Hybrid model. If you'll be towing with the hitch, you'll also need a # 118578 trailer wiring harness, a # 2753 ball mount an either a # 19261 1-7/8 inch or a # 63845 2 inch trailer ball. I've linked to installation videos for the hitch and the trailer wiring harness.

  • Correct Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2014 Toyota RAV4
    The correct Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2014 Toyota RAV4 is part # C13406 for a hidden crosstube or part # C13149 for a visible crosstube. I recommend the hidden crosstube as it will make for a better overall appearance. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13902 is not a fit as it's more designed for larger trucks.

  • How Much Does The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver C13406 Weigh?
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13406 you were looking at weighs in at 45lbs and given that it is not ordered with a bunch of other items the box will measure 45" x 8" x 25". If you do order other items I would just put a note in the order that the hitch is shipped in its own, smaller box. I included a video of the # C13406 for you to take a look at.

In regards to installation; simply lower the exhaust, fix the hitch into position and secure with provided hardware, trim the rear bumper fascia slighyt, then you are good to go.

  • What is the Hitch Height of the Curt 13406 2 Inch Hitch Installed on a 2017 Toyota RAV4
    The hitch height of the Curt # C13406 on most 2017 Toyota RAV4 is going to be 15" from the top of the receiver to the ground, but this is going to vary slightly from vehicle to vehicle depending on the suspension condition. I've linked our installation video of this hitch for you to check out as well, which details this measurement around the 1:30 mark. If you also need a wiring harness I recommend the Tekonsha T-One # 118578 which has the highest amp rating of any of the available harnesses...

  • Will the Curt 13406 Work For a Thule Bike Rack and Will It Still Allow Lift Sensors to Function
    I'll start off by saying that the Curt # C13406 would work just fine to carry a Thule bike rack since the hitch sticks out far enough to where the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the bumper is going to be roughly 2-1/2"; so as long as the measurement of the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the rack is greater than that you won't have to worry about it touching the RAV4. Additionally, this is a 2" Class III hitch receiver, so it's going to be well rated for...

That said, it does have the larger 2" receiver tube opening. I understand you have a bike rack with 1-1/4" shank but you can get an adapter for this (Hitch Reducer 2" to 1-1/4" Trailer Hitch Receiver part # HT02) assuming the bike rack did not come with one as most do.

  • What Is The Best Threaded Hitch Pin Lock to Use with Curt # C13406 Hitch on 2015 Toyota RAV4?

The threaded portion of the hitch pin allows you to tighten up the connection between your 2" receiver and your hitched item, be it a bike rack, cargo carrier or light trailer and ensure a quite rattle-free drive in addition to securing your hithced item.

  • Why Do the Curt Hitches for a 2018 Toyota RAV4 Have A Different Number of Mounting Holes
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13149 and Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13406 are both great options for a 2018 Toyota RAV4. The former has the receiver tube welded to the cross-member whereas the latter has the receiver tube welded to an extension and then to the cross-member. The extension is a weak point so there needs to be more attachment points for strength. I can't recommend modifying either hitch nor would it give any additional capacity or benefit.
