Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 - Curt

Speaker 1: Today on this 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, you'll be having a look at and being shown how to install the Curt Class IV trailer hitch receiver, part number C14006. Here's what our hitch looks like installed. On the side of our hitch you'll find our industry standard 5/8th of an inch diameter pin hole to secure any of our hitch mounted accessories. You can pick up a pin and clip on our website as part number PC3 to secure your accessories. Welded on the bottom of our receiver you'll find our rolled steel safety chain loops, which have fairly decent size opening so we shouldn't have much problem at all hooking on most safety chains from our trailer onto our hitch. Our hitch has a nice collar that's welded on the back of it to help reinforce the receiver opening and give us a more finished look.

This hitch has a very factory like appearance because of this collar and the fact that it's hidden mostly behind the vehicle's bumper.Now this class IV hitch is extremely heavy duty. It has a very large carrying capacity with a 1,000 pound max gross tongue weight rating, which is the amount forcing down. A 10,000 pound max gross trailer weight rating, which is the amount it can pull. It does support the use of weight distribution and when we're using that on our trailer, the max gross tongue weight rating increases to 1,200 pounds and the max gross trailer weight rating increases to 12,000 pounds. These are extremely high capacities so we want to make sure we consult with the owner's manual of our Silverado and not exceed what the vehicle is rated for.Now we'll get a few measurements to better assist you in choosing any hitch mounted accessory you may need such as a ball mount, bike rack or cargo carrier.

From the ground to the top of the 2 inch receiver opening, we're looking at about 18-1/2 inches. From the center of our hitch pin hole to the rearmost part of the back bumper, we're looking at about 4 inches.Now that we've gone over some features, we'll show you how to get the hitch installed. To begin your install you'll need to have your spare tire removed. For video purposes, we've already done that. Underneath the vehicle on each frame rail, we have a 21 millimeter bolt that faces straight up.

This holds in your factory bumper hitch reinforcement bracket. We'll just remove this bolt on each side. Now right in front of where our bolt was, we'll need to remove this nut. This nut is also a 21 millimeter. There's a bolt that runs down from the top, so if you put a 21 millimeter wrench on the bolt head, you'll be able to remove the nut.

We'll repeat the same process for the other side.On both of our frame rails, right in front of our cross member here, you have a small hole right next to it and then further towards the front, another small hole. We'll be using these two holes for our hardware that comes with the hitch. We'll use a block and a carriage bolt, drop it inside the frame. Now we have two spacers that are just large fender washers, basically. These will go between the frame and our hitch. Now to make it easier to keep them in place before we install the hitch, I'll use some silicone sealant, which we have on our website, so they won't fall down. You can also use tape if you want to but I find that silicone sticks better, especially when your vehicle has undercoating like this one.Now with an extra set of hands we can raise our hitch into position. We'll secure it on our carriage bolts with our provided flange nuts. And for the hardware that we removed, we'll reinstall it. So put our nut back on the other bolt and then reinstall our bolt. Now we'll tighten down all of our hardware. For the nuts on our carriage bolts, we will need to use a 3/4 inch socket. Now we'll torque all of our hardware to the amount specified in the instructions. Now that you have your hitch in place, you can put your spare tire back into position. It will fit completely around the hitch, not a problem. You'll be able to put a full size spare in place without any issues.And that completes your look at and being shown how to install the Curt Class IV trailer hitch receiver, part number C14006 on this 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500.

Good hitch receiver at a great price! Installation was fairly simple, it fit just like it said and there was NO DRILLING REQUIRED!!!! It does take a little longer that the 20 min. that it says it will but everyone is different. I look forward to pulling my camper all over this summer with it! I would recommend this item to anyone looking for an aftermarket hitch receiver for their Chevy Silverado. 203866

2017 Chevrolet Silverado

I just purchased a new 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 4.3 L V6, 8ft bed, base model truck, with no options. The truck is rated to tow a 5900 lbs trailer with a CGVW limit of 11000 lbs. I will be towing a Lance 1985 travel trailer, that weighs in around 4500 lbs wet. With excellent reviews and outstanding installation videos from etrailer.com, I ordered the Curt C14006 class IV hitch; the Tekonsha proportional Prodigy P3 brake controller; the Tekonsha plug-in wiring adapter specified for my truck; Cipa custom slip-on towing mirrors; and the 7- and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket w/ Mounting Bracket - HM40975 specified for my truck. All new Chevy Silverado 1500's (even the base model with no options) comes from the factory pre-wired with a basic seven wire trailer towing harness already installed. Everything electric just plugged in without a single cut or splice of the wiring or any other wiring modifications. I just followed the instructions in the excellent installation videos on the etrailer.com website. The hitch installed quickly and lined up perfectly with factory bolt holes already on the truck frame, no drilling required. Finally I slipped on the Cipa custom towing mirrors and I was ready to tow after about two hours work. If I would have ordered my truck with a factory tow package, integrated brake controller, and extendable towing mirrors, the options would have run me slightly over $1450 on a new Chevy truck. Instead, I spent two hours of my own time doing the installations and paid about $550 for all the parts by ordering by from etrailer.com. Nice savings. You need to have a good set of socket and open end wrenches, including a torque wrench adjustable to a minimum of 110 ft/lbs for the hitch bolts. Spend some time and review all the installation videos for the parts that you need to order. The etrailer.com website also has downloadable installation instructions provided by the parts manufacturers. 477368

Ordered two for our new Chevy Silverado 1500 fleet trucks and installation was quick and painless. First one took 30 minutes, the second took 10 minutes and both were done without removing the spare. Like others have mentioned, packaging came slightly ripped open on one unit, however the hardware was securely taped on and complete. Watch the installation video on the website and you'll be fine. Final product turned out fantastic! 616634

Great heavy duty part, perfect fit. I definitely recommend it. Installed it on my 15 Silverado 1500 on my own without lowering the spare tire . Installation was easy ,first I had to remove the light duty oem tow bar. Looks very good on the truck! Watched etrailer’s installation video prior to installing 613887



- C14006
by:

The online video was a great walk though for the installation. I didn’t have any help so I rigged a wooden shaft through the receiver then cut a slot that excepted the spare tire winch cable and cranked it up into position. Perfect fit and was a Piece of cake! Thanks, I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone needing trailering accessories. 613317

Products as advertised. Fast delivery, great fit, no issues haven't towed anything yet, but i see no issues Great service and the Price was right! The only thing i noticed was the receiver sits about an inch or so below the bumper where the factory ones are up tight. 612734

Hitch is awesome. Class 4 may be slight overkill for pulling a pontoon boat, but for a few bucks more might as well upgrade the hitch. Shipping is very fast. Very easy install for anyone that has the proper tools to do the job. Saved over $100 by purchasing from here and installing myself. 612371

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Do Class Iv and Class V Hitches Have Different Sized Receiver Openings
  • The B&W Tow & Stow Adjustable Ball Mounts will either fit a 2 inch receiver, # BWTS20048B, or a 2-1/2 inch receiver opening, like # BWTS20049B. None will fit both a 2 inch and a 2-1/2 inch receiver hitch opening. Normally. Class IV trailer hitches, like # C14006 for 2014-2017 Chevy/GMC 1500 Trucks, will have 2x2 inch receiver openings. Class V hitches, like # C15300 , will use a 2-1/2 inch receiver opening. However, there are some Class V that use a 2x2 inch opening. I have linked...

Is your exhaust system stock or aftermarket? If it is aftermarket then I could see how there could be an issue. The side plates on the available hitches are all roughly the same since that is the height needed to get the receiver in the proper location. The other option is to use longer exhaust hangers or other components...

  • Why Install a Aftermarket Hitch that Mounts Below the Bumper and Not Use the Bumper Hitch?
  • Most bumper mount hitches (the hole in the bumper) a sized to accommodate a standard trailer ball and have a low weight capacity like 1,000lbs and 100lbs tongue weight. This is usually good for a light trailer or seadoo. If it is able to tow your trailer level.

  • Is Curt Class IV Trailer Hitch an Upgrade Over OEM Hitch on 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • The Curt Class IV Trailer Hitch Receiver # C14006 referenced in your question features a towing capacity of 10,000 pounds and a tongue weight capacity of 1,000 pounds. Based on my research, this does appear to be an upgrade over the factory hitch on your 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 with regards to its capacity. I do recommend verifying this by checking the capacity of your existing hitch, which should be labeled with a sticker right on the hitch or in your copy of the owner's manual. With...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • Trailer hitch installation between a 2013 and 2014 Chevy Silverado is going to be basically identical. We have a video showing installation of Curt trailer hitch # C15323 on a 2014 Silverado which I have linked for you. We do not have a video on hitch # C14006. If you go with Curt hitch C15323 I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # EBMK2416. It comes with a ball mount with a 3 inch rise or 4 inch drop, 2 hitch balls, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If you go with Draw-Tite...

  • Recommended Hitch Motorcycle Carrier with Ramp for 400-lb BMW on 2015 Chevrolet Silverado
  • For a 400-lb motorcycle you will want a carrier rated for more than this weight, to give you some safety margin, such as the Ultra-Fab # UF48-979033, which has a 500-lb capacity and a 39-inch ramp. To lock it to your hitch use # e98880. Your hitch receiver must also have the tongue weight (TW) capacity required for the combined weight of the 95-lb carrier plus the weight of your BMW. Ideally you would use this carrier in a hitch like the Curt # C14006 which has a 1000-lb TW rating.

  • Why Can't Draw-Tite Heavy Duty Weld-On Truck Hitch be Used with Weight Distribution
  • Draw-Tite hitch # 41990-07 has not been rated for or tested with weight distribution and because of that the manufacturer places a "not for use with weight distribution" warning on the hitch. This is common for weld-on truck hitches. We do have Class IV custom fit hitches for the 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500 that are rated for weight distribution such as Curt hitch # C14006. When used with weight distribution it is rated for 1,200 pounds tongue weight and 12,000 pounds gross trailer weight....

Since I am not sure what hitch you are considering or what vehicle you have I will use the part # C14006 as an example. This hitch is confirmed to fit the newer Chevy Silverados.

  • Class IV Hitch and 7-Way Trailer Connector for 2014 GMC Sierra 1500
  • The Curt Class IV hitch, part # C14006 is a fit for your 2014 Sierra 1500, as confirmed by Curt. The trailer connector you mentioned, part # HM40975 is actually the OEM plug used on the Sierra 1500, so it would certainly fit in the knockout in the rear bumper to the left of the license plate. The wiring harness is located under the truck along the driver's side frame rail. Simply remove the dust plug from the end of the harness and plug it into the rear of the # HM40975.

  • Recommendation on a Trailer Hitch for a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado Pickup
  • For your 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, I have few hitches for you to review that will fit your vehicle. I recommend the Curt Class IV Hitch, # C14006. The Curt hitch is a custom-fit hitch that will mount to the frame of you truck without any additional drilling to the truck's frame. The hitch has the 2 inch receiver opening which will allow you to choose from a larger variety of hitch accessories, like bike racks or cargo carriers. This hitch has a 1000 lbs tongue weight and 10000 lbs...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • The Curt Hitch part # C19031 that you referenced is a universal fit hitch that is designed to fit several vehicles. The distance between the mounting holes is 10-1/2 inches. Most likely there would be drilling for installation. A better solution for you would be a custom fit hitch designed to fit the frame of your truck. This will provide you with a hitch that will fit without modification and will have a much higher capacity. The most popular option we carry is the Curt Hitch part...

  • Hitch Availability for a Box Van 2000 Ford E-450
  • Since your truck has a box van on it there is a solution for installing a hitch, but a custom fit one like the # C14006 would not work. I spoke to my contacts at Curt and Reese and the only styles of hitches that can be made to fit a box van like yours are multi-fit RV hitches like the # 41990 that has a 16k capacity. This is a weld on hitch that would require either the 7 inch drop brackets part # 4907 or the 16 inch brackets part # 4916.

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • I have a solution for you, but we do not offer, not have I ever seen any type of adjustable trailer coupler like you mentioned and we do not have any bumper mounted hitches for your Silverado. I understand not wanting to add an aftermarket hitch, when a bumper pull might do the job, but since those are so limited you really are best served by adding an aftermarket hitch like the Draw-Tite # 76016 . Adding an aftermarket hitch will allow you to tow your current trailer safely, plus give...

  • Replacement Hitch Recommendation for 2011 Chevy Silverado 1500 Crew Cab
  • The best hitch I'd recommend for your 2011 Chevy Silverado is the Curt hitch part # 14301 because it has great towing capacities at 10,000 lb trailer weight and because it has only the hitch tube that hangs below the rear bumper for a more concealed look. I attached a picture of what the hitch looks like installed as well as an install video.
