Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Ram 1500 - Curt

Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 RAM 1500 we're gonna be taking a look at, and showing you how to install, the Curt Class V Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number: C15572. This is what our hitch looks like when it's installed. As you can see, the cross tube is visible; however, it is a round tube design, so it's gonna fit with the contour of the vehicle. It does sit nice and flush with the edge of the bumper, so you're not gonna have to worry about hitting your legs or your shins on it when loading and unloading the vehicle.It's gonna be a Class V. It's gonna be 2" x 2". Right here's gonna be your hitch pin hole, it's gonna be 5/8" in diameter.

It's gonna have a plate-style safety chain ring. As you can see, it gives you plenty of room for different size safety chain hooks. Now, this is also gonna have a reinforced collar to give you a little extra stability on the receiver tube. Another thing about this hitch, that I like, is everything is a little bit thicker, being a Class V. And having that matte finish, it kind of gives it that rugged look for a truck.

You're gonna have a max tongue weight of 1,500 pounds, which is the downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube. You're gonna have a max trailer weight of 15,000 pounds, which is the trailer plus the load included. Now, I do recommend checking your owner's manual to make sure your vehicle can withstand that amount of weight, and you're gonna want to pick the lowest number between the hitch and the vehicle. Now, you can use weight distribution with this hitch. Tongue weight is gonna go up to 1,600 pounds, trailer weight is gonna go up to 16,000 pounds.The installation on this is very simple.

It's gonna use existing holes in the frame. It comes with all the necessary hardware. The only thing that I recommend is getting an extra set of hands to help lift the hitch into place. Now we will give you a couple measurements to help you when deciding on any hitch-mount accessories you may need, such as a bike rack, ball mount, or cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost part of the bumper will be about 2-1/2".

From the ground to the top innermost part of the receiver tube will be about 20". Now let's show you how to get this installed.So, to begin our installation, we've gone ahead and removed the spare tire. What we need to do next is, you're gonna have a bolt on both sides of the vehicle. It's gonna be holding your bumper beam up to your frame, and it's gonna be this very forward bolt that we're gonna be removing. When you remove it, we're gonna hold on to it because we're gonna be reinstalling it. Be using a 13/16" socket. Now, because this is going into a weld nut, I would suggest, if you're gonna use power tools, loosen it with a wrench first. We'll do that same thing to the other side. We're also gonna remove the furthest one to the back on both sides of the vehicle.We'll take our small skinny spacer block and one of our carriage bolts, we'll take our fish wire, and we're gonna thread our bolt and our spacer block onto the pull wire, like this. What we're gonna do is we're gonna do a reverse pull in this large hole. Push your bolt up in the spacer block, pull it back down. At this point we're gonna take off the pull wire. You want to make sure you don't just pull it because the kit only comes with two of them, and you're gonna need them for our next step. We're gonna do this same thing on the other side of the vehicle.Next we're gonna take one of our pull wires, and on the back side of our bumper beam here, we're gonna feed it through the hole and we're gonna come out the end, just like that. Then we're gonna take one of our large spacer blocks with the square hole. We'll put it on first, go ahead and push it in the hole. Then we'll take one of our carriage bolts, thread it on the end, and we're gonna pull it out like that. Now, we're not gonna pull it through the hole just yet. We're gonna do the same thing on this one.So now, with an extra set of hands, we'll put our hitch into place. First thing you want to do is get your wires, your pull wires, into the proper holes. Now we'll put one of our M14 bolts that we removed out of our bumper bracket. We'll reinstall one of those on each side to hold our hitch in place, so we can put on our remaining hardware. Next we'll install our flange nuts. You're gonna do the same thing on the other side of the vehicle. Now we'll remove our pull wires from our bumper beam. We'll take our flange nuts, then you're gonna want to install your flange nuts on the two bolts that are underneath, on the inside of the bumper beam.Once you have all your hardware installed, we'll start tightening it down. For our hardware that comes in our kit, we'll be using a 3/4" socket. For the two bolts that we removed, that we're reinstalling on the bumper beam, we'll be using a 13/16". Next we'll torque everything down to the specifications in the instructions. Once you have all your hardware torqued down you can go ahead and reinstall the spare tire.And that'll do it for a look at, and installation, on the Curt Class V Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number: C15572, on our 2017 RAM 1500.

My hitch arrived without al the required hardware. After 3 weeks of back and forth with etrailer customer support, I received the missing items. When i tried to install the hitch, I found that it was bent and would not bolt up to my truck. Staff at etrailer was very helpful and sent me a new hitch . It fit without problems. I spent about 45 min to complete the install. 446174

I ordered Class V hitch C15572 for my 2018 RAM Sport Night edition 4x4 from etrailer.com. The item was delivered on time and the shipping was free. I watched the suggested installation video and a friend and I got it installed in under an hour. All the holes lined up perfectly and everything was flush. This hitch is 60+ pounds, so make sure you have extra hands to hold it in place while bolting it up. The only small issue was there were some scratches on the hitch that were covered with brown paper. Not a big deal - it's a hitch! I would recommend this hitch and eTrailer to anyone. My friend wants to order one for his RAM Truck! 500573

I replaced a Reese Class III with this Curt Class V, The Rees e had gone on and off with eazy. The Curt not so much, only the two holes on the cross member lined up. The holes on the side brackets were a nightmare. I had to use nylon straps and pry bars to get holes lined up to slid onto studs then to get holes lined to start orginal frames bolts were they didnt bind. Took almost three hours a huge amount of time for a job like this. Never again. 84871

Great receiver hitch with a great flat color finish! I highly recommend this curt receiver hitch! It also fits great with no drilling required. Install time for me was about 45 minutes was pretty simple with good instructions. Also I highly recommended ordering from etrailer. Great fast free delivery from etrailer. I received my product in 2 days! 523571

Thank you etrailer for the prompt service and a great price. I ordered the Curt trailer hitch #C15572 for my 2018 Ram 1500 at 9:20 pm Friday night and got a email saying it had shipped at 10:15 pm that same night. Received it on the day (the following Wednesday) they said it would arrive but way earlier in the day. I read a lot of reviews before I ordered and some shipments may have been handled ruff and some people said the hitch was bent and hard to install. My shipment came and the cardboard box had a few small rips but upon inspection the hitch seemed fine. It is pretty heavy and the box seems a little weak for such a item but all hardware is well taped to the hitch and was intact on arrival. On reading the reviews one person mentioned using their floor jack and a slide in receiver for holding the hitch up and since I was going to be installing this myself I tried this out. As you can see in my pictures it works pretty well if you a jack you can bolt it too or clamp it too as in my case. The hitch only needed slight prying to line up the factory M12 bolts in the frame and the fishing wires made the job so much easier with the rest of the bolts. I am now ready to tow with confidence, thanks again for the great service. 525519

This is a sturdy hitch. Working alone on my back, it was a real challenge to maneuver it into place and bolted down. There was some trial and error but it took just a few minutes once I found a way around my arthritic shoulder. For once my rather large gut proved to be quite handy. 647111

Well made Heavy Duty Receiver. My truck originally did not come with a hitch receiver. So, I checked the internet for heavy duty hitch receivers. Found the Curt unit to be an excellent choice. Installation was quite easy (with a helper). Instructions were clear and video helped with the installation which took about 2 hours. I believe this receiver is stronger than an original equipment unit I have seen on similar pickup trucks . I would recommend the Curt unit. Well worth the 5 star rating. 636545

Just installed today. Instructions were very good. I did the install by myself but would say you definitely need 2 people. Everything fit well. Had to pry the unit over about a 1/16th of an inch to get last bolt in but between variations in truck frames and hitch I consider that excellent! My original receiver was lost in shipment but etrailer quickly shipped a replacement as soon as i contacted them and I received it 2 days later. Awesome customer service! This receiver looks to be very high quality. Also made in USA! 539282

the hitch is great but the packaging sucked, it was falling out of several taped together boxes, I guess they get them by the truck load and warp them individually. that said, I shopped it all over its the best price I could find and is a Class % hitch. 527647

the product is excellent, it was shipped and arrived in a timely manner. The only issue i had was the lack of provided instructrions. We had to watch a youtube tutorial to figure out how to properly install the product which wasted about half an hour finding the correct video. 494287

I was pleasantly suprised when the reciever was delivered 3 days after ordering. The box was undamaged in contrast to many other reviewers. I was happy that the kit came with 2 fishing wires so that my partner and i were able to work on each side simultaneously. Everything fit perfectly and took about 20 minutes. It actually took longer to retrieve the tools from the truck to drop and lowere the spare tire. Will definatley order more products from Curt and from etrailer.com 365920

A little snug, but I figured it would be. It was easy to install. I figured out, that I shouldn't tighten any bolt until they were all started. I had to make an adjustment to install the last bolt. I used a thick screw driver squeezing it between the hitch and the frame of the truck to make the last of the adjustments. I hammered the screw driver between the Truck frame and side of the Hitch plate to align the last screw hole. 365505

Received today 1/6/2017 and installed it. Took about 30 minutes. When I was researching receiver hitches, I went straight to this manufacturer site. This same hitch on their site is twice as much than what you pay for it through etrailer. Everything arrived and a large cardboard box. All items were still inside the box but, UPS or somebody went through a war zone before they delivered it to me. No damage to the receiver hitch but boy that box was tore up. Very satisfied with this product and definitely would recommend this class 5 receiver hitch. 330560

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Class V Trailer Hitch for a 2014 Ram 1500
  • Yes, you can install a Class V trailer hitch on your 2014 Ram 1500. Curt hitch # C15572 is rated a Class V, but it has a 2 inch receiver. The tongue weight capacity is 1,500 pounds, and the gross trailer weight capacity is 15,000 pounds. You will need to stay within the capacities of the truck though since it is rated lower than the hitch. I have included links to the instructions and a video showing a typical installation for you. I also recommend etrailer ball mount kit # EBMK2416....

  • Class V 2-Inch Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2013 Ram 1500 2WD Without Factory Hitch
  • For your 2013 Ram 1500 2WD without a factory-installed hitch we offer several options in an aftermarket 2-inch hitch. All are shown on the linked page and their compatibility will vary depending on the specific complement of equipment on your truck. We offer Class II, Class IV and Class V hitches for your truck. The two options I recommend are the Class V models, part # C15572 from Curt and part # 41948 from Draw-Tite. Click on Class V to see these two hitches. These Class V hitches...

  • Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Ram 1500
  • For your 2016 Ram 1500 you can use Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 41948. It has a tongue weight capacity of 1,500 pounds and gross trailer weight capacity of 12,000 pounds so it will cover the weights of the loaded trailers that you have. At least I am pretty sure. I just don't know how much a 1958 Massey Ferguson tractor weighs! I want to say in the neighborhood of 5,000 to 6,000 pounds but I suppose it depends on the exact model.

  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class V - 2" # C15572 is not a fit for your 2003 Ram 1500. It is only a fit for 2009 and newer models. For your needs, I recommend the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class IV - 2" # 41929 which is rated for 12K towing and 15K when using weight distribution and tongues weights at 1,200 or 1,500 with weight distribution.

  • Curt Manufacturing offers a few different high quality, made in America hitches for your 2010 Dodge Ram 1500. The right hitch for you will depend on what you'll be towing and how much it weighs. If a 6000 lb towing/ 600 lb tongue weight (maximum amount of weight that can safely be suspended from the hitch) will work for you, you can't go wrong with the Curt Class III hitch, part # 13333. For a higher capacity, 10000 lbs towing/1000 lbs tongue weight, go with the Curt Class IV, part...

  • Recommended Towing Setup for a 2016 Ram 1500 Without Tow Package
  • I recommend always going for the highest rated hitch that is a confirmed fit. Since your max towing capacity is limited by the lowest rated item in your towing setup, it is much better for your 2016 Ram 1500's towing capacity to be the deciding factor instead of the trailer hitch receiver. Because of this I recommend going with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15572 which is a Class V hitch with a 2 inch receiver. It has a Gross Towing Weight (GTW) of 15,000 lbs and a Tongue Weight...

  • Yes, you can remove the OEM Class IV receiver from your 2013 Ram 1500. If it is just bolted on then you should be able to do it yourself, but you might have to move a few other things under your Ram depending on how the hitch installs. If it is welded on then you will need to get a professional to cut the welds for you. The Class V Curt Hitch # C15572 that you referenced will be a great upgrade on your Ram 1500.

  • Availability of a Class V Trailer Hitch for a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500
  • The reason that aftermarket hitches cannot be installed on a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 with a factory installed trailer hitch is because the hitch is welded to the rear cross member and cannot be removed. It the hitch on your truck was installed by the dealer and is bolted on, it can be removed and a new hitch installed in its place. If the hitch is bolted on, we do not carry a Class V hitch for your truck, but we do have a Class IV rated and 1,000 pounds tongue weight capacity and 10,000...

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...

  • Trailer Hitch, Wiring, and Accessories for a 2013 Ram 1500 SLT
  • For your 2013 Ram 1500 I recommend Class IV trailer hitch # 14374. It is rated for 1,000 pounds tongue weight and 10,000 pounds gross trailer weight. When used with weight distribution it is rated for 1,200/12,000 pounds. Check the truck owner's manual for the truck's capacities and go by the lower of the 2 ratings, the hitch or the truck. I also recommend etrailer ball mount kit # EBMK2416. It comes with a ball mount with a 3 inch rise or 4 inch drop It also includes a 2 inch ball,...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendations for a 2011 Dodge Ram
  • On the 2011 Dodge Ram that structural bar isn't a spare tire frame, it is a cross member that links the two frame rails together so it is very strong. This is also where Dodge welds on the factory hitch for trucks that have it. The hitch you choose, no matter where it installs, needs to have the capacity to handle the loaded car hauler. The truck also needs to be rated high enough. The highest capacity hitch for the 1500 series is # C15572 rated for 1500 pounds tongue weight and 15,000...

  • Where is a Trucks Towing Capacity Listed
  • The easiest way to determine the towing capacity of your truck will be to look on the hitch of your 2014 Ram 2500 for a sticker that has the towing capacities listed. Also, you can check the owners manual. Since the capacities of trucks varies base on how it is equipped it would be pretty hard for me to determine what your exact capacity would be. I attached a help article on hitch classifications for you to check out as well.
