Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan - Curt

Today on this 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan were going to install part number 12362 from Curt. This is what the hitch looks like when its installed on the vehicle. Next well give you some measurements to help you out in selecting some accessories, such as a bike rack or a cargo carrier. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground will be 12 inches. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper will be two and three quarter inches. Now Ill go ahead and show you how the hitch is installed.

The first thing we need to do is go ahead here and remove the rear most bumper bracket bolt from the bottom of the vehicle. This will be the bolt thats closest to the bumper. Its a good idea to break this loose by hand because these bolts can break if you use an impact wrench. Now we can go ahead and start installing our hardware. Between the two bolts for the bumper bracket is an oval slot.

Well fish wire the hardware into that oval hole. Well take the fish wire, push it in through the oval hole and out toward the bumper. Theres a plastic tab in the bumper bracket that you have to feel around to get the bolt leader out. Well go ahead and thread in the 1 x 2 block, push it into the frame and then thread on our bolt. Then well pull our frame and bolt through.

Now well go farther up the frame and therell be another bolt hole we can use for our hitch. Well go ahead and repeat the same process. Were done with the passenger side. Well go ahead and repeat the same process over on the drivers side. A good way to identify the holes on the vehicle is to hold up the hitch to the frame to make sure everything lines up correctly.

On this vehicle, this will be the attachment point that well use. All right, with all our hardware installed we can go ahead and lift the hitch up into position. Be careful not to push the bolts up into the frame, and well install the phalange nuts on the bottom of the bolts. Then well go ahead and install a new 12 mm bolt and a conical tooth washer into the threaded hole thats closest to the bumper. Well make sure that the conical tooth washer has the teeth pointing toward the hitch. With all our hardware loosely installed now we can go ahead and tighten down the hardware and torque them down as specified in the instructions. With that, that will finish it for our install of part number 12362 from Curt on our 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan.

Got exactly what I ordered and was very pleased with the phishing wires included with the required bolts and pins. This allowed me to do it myself, relatively easy. All hardware was there to complete the job myself. Thanks! 187532

I found the link for the custom hitch quickly, order process was easy (good payments options, too!), and got the product the same week. There were specific instructions online (video) and included with the product. It installed easily, and fit perfect; I'm very pleased with the entire experience. 17359

Clever design. On a 1 to 10 for difficulty of install, 7. But a perfect fit in a challenging location, and it came with some clever tools to assist the installation. I like it very much 578591

Chrysler Town&Country LX (no stow and go seats). The shipment was fast! No issues with the delivery as well. The installation process was easy (a second pair of hands is really needed). I'm going to use the bar to carry bicycle rack and I was worried if there is enough space for bicycles. It turned to be more than enough - more than 10 cm from the bike's handles to the rear glass. I have Swagman XTC-2 bike rack. That's my second purchase from e-trailer. I was happy the first time and I'm happy again. Regards, Sergey. 14993

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?

  • Troubleshooting Low Ball Mount Ground Clearance on a 2003 Chrysler Town and Country
  • The Curt Class II Trailer Hitch, part # C12362, is the correct trailer hitch for your 2003 Chrysler Town and Country and the ball mount, part # C45521, is the recommended ball mount for that hitch. It is perfectly safe to turn the ball mount upside down to gain more ground clearance. This is called using the ball mount in the rise position. It is recommended for your vehicle to use this ball mount in the rise position since the trailer hitch is low to the ground. I do not recommend...
