The hitch is a well built and a heavy duty item. The instructions call for you to drill out a hole to 9/16". I would wait and install, maybe dry fit to make sure the hole you made, line up with bracket on the hitch. Mine was about a half of screw off, so I would hold off on drilling the hole until you can see if it would line up. 548070

Good hitch, not so good install. Installed on 2019 Ford Transit. Hitch is rated for more than Ford's towing weight spec's. But I like to go a bit bigger when possible. The four horizontal bolts and the two passenger side vertical bolts lined up perfect. The two vertical bolts on the driver side did not line up well. The rear vehicle favored bolt hole needed to be enlarged on the hitch and truck to line up. This required putting the hitch up and down checking bolt fit. This was not easy since the spacial sizing of the hitch is a bit off. The side to side dimension of the hitch is about 1/8" too wide to fit between the frame rails of the truck. 1/8" is not much, but with tolerances between steel on steel it makes a big difference. It's easy to see what is wrong. The frame rails have an extra reinforcement metal wrap on a portion of the passengers side. Due mostly to the factory tow hook mount (tow hook needs to be removed and is not stated in instructions - reinforcement mount cannot be removed). A measurement between the rails not including the reinforcement area would match the hitch dimensions. A measurement between the rails including the reinforcement would be 1/8" or so less. Perhaps Curt engineers did not account for the reinforcement. The attached pictures show a single layer frame rail on the drivers side and a triple layer reinforced frame rail portion on the passenger side. This required me to use a hydraulic floor jack to press fit the hitch into place. This coupled with the misaligned bolt holes made for unnecessary complexity. Removing the hitch to enlarge holes required bar leveraging to squeeze the hitch back down, then jack back into place check alignment, than leverage down, drill, repeat. Again, good hitch, not so good engineering. 603422

Hitch arrived very quickly and as described. Instructions were ok, some of the steps were confusing because they were miss labeled. Drilling the rear 1/16" holes to 9/16" was no big deal. Fishing the carriage bolts and female carriage plates through the frame rails was frustrating, but only the two near the bumper. Now the real concern... the 1/16" holes once enlarged, did not align with the hitch "tabs". I would recommend mock fitting the hitch with the four 15mm Ford bolts prior to drilling the 1/16" frame rail holes, this will ensure the 9/16 hole is properly aligned and possibly ease fishing the rear carriage bolt into the frame rail, DO NOT TAKE MY WORD FOR THIS, PLEASE CONFIRM FOR YOURSELF. This should be clear if the instructions are combined with these notes and save about an hour. Even then, I can't imagine a "novice" could could install in the suggested half hour. I am giving this product 4 stars because it seems to be a 5 start product from a solid 5 star distributor (etrailer), if the instructions didn't lead you to frustration after 90% of the job was completed. Consider conferring with e-trailer for wiring kit for lights and brake controller. I'm into my second day on that part of the project and local suppliers have my spinning in circles. 438280

The product materials say a professional will take 15 minutes to install this hitch and an amateur will need 30 minutes. My father and I are apparently incompetent because this took us a few hours. Some other reviewers have noted that the two holes you need to drill larger do not line up with the hitch. I had to expand these two holes towards the center of the vehicle. We also had to jack the hitch into place because the fit was way too tight. In theory this hitch has a good design and straightforward installation. I felt that the materials were high quality and the kit came with everything I expected. However, the manufacturer needs to fine tune the design to better fit the vehicle. Note: I had to ask my dad to bring over a larger breaker bar to remove the factory bolts for installation. This is not a problem with the product, but a note on our installation experience. 796090

Hitch and wiring kit were received but the shipping box was not in good condition. The metal was sticking out of the box and the wiring kit box was smashed but nothing was damaged inside the wiring kit box. The receiver hitch did suffer some scratches. The order was shipped out quickly and was a really good value. I will be installing it soon. 791486

The package arrived within the expected time frame. The box was slightly damaged but the hitch appears fine. All the bolts etc was present. Something I did not anticipate is the weight of the hitch and lifting it in place while bolting as well as the need for a torque wrench. After some consideration I decided to have a mechanic instal the hitch for me. Hopefully he can do it in one hour of shop time. If I had a lift and a helper I'm sure I could do it in an hour or less. 611013


Comments
Used the hitch to hold a heavy duty bike rack on a 6000 mile trip. No issues. I dont anticipate any problems. The hitch feels like it is part of the trucks frame. The vehicle is a Ford Transit 350 converted to a camper. The cost to have a pro instal the hitch was $100. That did not include wiring for a trailer. Estimate on a pro wiring job is another $100.

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch

  • High Capacity Trailer Hitch, Wiring, and Brake Controller for 2018 Ford Transit T350
    The highest capacity trailer hitch for your 2018 Ford Transit T350 is the Curt Class IV part # C14012 which has an 8,000 lb trailer towing capacity without WD and then 10,000 with WD. You will need to start with a 4-way (if you do not have one). For that you would want the # 118643. From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install the brake controller. For that you will want the Brake Controller Install Kit and 7-Way Adapter part # ETBC7.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness for 2020 Ford Transit T150 Cargo Van
    Absolutely! First, in order to hook up to the trailer you will need to add a trailer hitch to your 2020 Ford Transit T150. For this I highly recommend the Curt Class IV # C14012, which features a sleek hidden cross tube design so that only the 2" receiver is visible from behind the van (see attached images) and more than enough capacity to handle a smaller trailer. This custom hitch will line right up to existing holes in the frame rails for a simple bolt-on installation and all...

  • Differences in Towing Capacities for Curt Hitches for 2016 Ford Transit T350
    Both the Curt hitches you mentioned are a confirmed fit for your 2016 Ford Transit T350. The capacities are interesting but the Class IV # C14012 does have higher trailer towing capacities at 8,000 lbs vs. the Class III # C13193 which has a 6,000 lb capacity. You are correct though that the tongue weight capacity of the III is higher at 900 lbs vs. the IV which has a 800 lb capacity. The hitches have very different constructions which would be why they have different capacities. They...

All of these are 2-inch hitches but their capacities vary; all can be seen on the linked page.

The recommended ball mount for this hitch is # C45341. It has a 3 inch rise or 4 inch drop. For a 2-5/16 inch ball use # 63840 and for a 2 inch use # A-90.

If you already have a trailer hitch and basic wiring like the T-One # 118643 (single rear wheel) or # 118722 (dual rear wheel) installed on your Transit then you need the Universal Wiring Kit # ETBC7 which plugs into your existing 4-Way and provides you with all of the connections and wiring for a brake controller.

  • 2019 Ford Transit 350 Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation
    The hitch I recommend for your 2019 Ford Transit T350 is the etrailer part # e98842 as it is by far the best value and a great choice for a kayak trailer. We have hitches with higher capacities like the Curt # C14012 but that would be a bit overkill for what you plan on towing. Then for a 4-way the best option is the part # 118643 as it installs easily and has the most reliable converter box of all the kits we offer.

  • Curt Class III and Class IV Hitch Comparison for 2018 Ford Transit T350 Passenger Van
    You are correct that we offer both Class III and Class IV 2-inch hitches for your 2018 Ford Transit T350 passenger van. If trailer towing were your intended application then the Class IV hitch # C14012 would definitely be my top recommendation since it can tow 2000-lbs more weight than the Class III model # C13193. But since your intended use is with a hitch-mount cargo carrier like # C18153 I recommend instead that you go with their Class III hitch # C13193 since it has a higher tongue...

  • Trailer Hitch and Brake Controller Recommendation for a 2015 Ford Transit T150
    If the connector you found looks like the round connector in the picture I attached all you would need to add a 7-way to your vehicle would be the part # HM40975 as this would plug into this connector. Now since you have a 7-way you would just need to wire it up so that your controller would work with it. First let's start with a brake controller. I would recommend the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part # 90885. This is our best selling brake controller because of how well it works...

Since KUV bodies can extend back pretty far you may not have access to the mounting points. We offer both Class III and Class IV 2-inch hitches for your 2015 Ford Transit T250.

The Class IV, part # C14012 has a 10,000 lb towing/1000 lb tongue weight capacity. You'll be limited by the capacity of the vehicle, if its lower than the capacity of the hitch.
