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

Today on this 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan were going to install part number C13362 from Curt. This is what the hitch looks like when its installed on the van. Next well go ahead and give you some measurements that will help you out in selecting some accessories, such as a ball mount, a bicycle rack or a cargo carrier. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground will be 12 inches, and from the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper will be three and a quarter inches. Now Ill go ahead and show you how the hitch is installed. The first thing we need to do is go ahead 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 towards 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 further up the frame and there will be another bolt hole that we can use for our hitch.

Well go ahead and repeat the same process. Were done with the passengers 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 points 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 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 C13362 from Curt on our 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan.

It worked fine and I would give it 5 stars except the installation was more difficult than it should be, the two front bolts did not match the holes in my frame and required some cutting and drilling. Apart from that it was good quality and a good fit. 570524

Great Product, was a little harder to but on then is said. Part of it was the bolts were tough to get off, the wires that they give you break easily so if you have to tug on them I would re-enforce them. The hitch itself is great, just used it to tow a trailer from Colorado to Texas. 62113

Installed hitch on 2001 Chrysler Town and Country. Installation relatively simple. I watched the video for this hitch and also watched the videos for the "Hidden Hitch". (Code: 87717) The videos had bunch of great tips! The plastic cover on the end of the frame rails are a pain. I have bigger hands and arms, and it was difficult to put my arm in the area between the frame and bumper to bend the plastic cover inward into the frame to pass the bolt and square washer. It is possible to get in the area to do it! It only ships with two fish wires, but installing the hitch one side at a time (driver then passenger) worked great. The mounting area of the hitch was slightly bent inward on the hitch I received. I was able to get it bent back out using some wrenches. You may want to hold up the hitch to verify the alignment of the holes. Overall time took me about 1 hour to install (most of the time was searching for tools in my parents garage). I Jacked up the back end and put jack stands under the axle to make room enough to easily work on it. It could be installed with only one person, but simplifies the process to have an extra hand. 143573

Product is great. Exactly what I expected it to be. This is the second time I have purchased through etrailer.com. First, always buy the Vehicle specific wiring harness. It makes things so simple and saves hours of time. Second, the customer service, product offerings, speed of shipment and delivery is the BEST ON THE INTERNET!!! I got an email within an hour of my purchase saying it was completed and shipping that day. Product arrived a day early. I am a customer for life!!! Not to mention the how to videos are such a time saver. 220705

I generally will buy Curt products over other choices because they tend to be high quality, made in USA (my home town) and install easily. This one was a bit of a disappointment. It came bent from shipping damage (poorly packed) and the coating was cracked... Not Curt's fault, obviously, lesson learned: don't buy a hitch off the internet. I was surprised the coating chipped and started flaking as easily as it did however, didn't seem to be bonded very well to the steel. The install was more difficult than it should have been. The heads of the carriage bolts don't fit through the holes as directed in the instructions, they are about .2" too big on the diameter. I could have hacked/ground them to fit, but chose to remove the entire bumper fascia, bumper, etc. and install them through the end. The other minor annoyance was that the hitch uses standard sized fasteners, including an oddball standard-headed-metric bolt to go into the OE bumper, whereas you need an 18mm socket to remove the OE hardware... So its unfortunate that it gets a 'good' rating due entirely to saving a few cents on fasteners, and finishing. Also worth noting the videos on this website have a habit of glossing over the more difficult parts, perhaps to make it easier to sell stuff. I'm a pretty adept mechanic and by the time i had to bend the hitch back into shape, and remove the entire bumper, the install ran me just short of 3 hours. I would say if your time is worth anything, you are probably better off buying this hitch local and paying someone the quoted install time of 1/2 hour shop labor, and letting them deal with the liability of shipping damage or install complications. I did just tow a 3000 lb ski boat over 1500 miles with the hitch, it tows noticeably better than the class 2 hitch that was on my old 2000 Caravan. Plus, the 2" receiver accepts more 'standard' bike racks and stuff like that. Paying a little more for the Class 3 is money well spent. TL; DR: good hitch, probably the best one available for this car, especially if you plan on doing any serious towing (boat, camper, etc) but buy it local and pay someone to install it or plan on 2+ hours and some cursing. 143222

Great product, great price! Delivery was fast and all components were packaged and padded well. The hitch fit like a glove on my 2001 Chrysler Town & Country. and installation went smoother than expected. Thanks for the informative video on installation provided on your website. Highly recommend that several days prior to installation that you start treating your original frame to bumper bolts (the two that require removal) with liquid wrench or break-free, as this is the only part of the process that could give you difficulty. Mine came out without breaking, but it takes an impact wrench, and they were understandably stubborn after 17 years! Thanks again etrailer for providing such fine service and value! 517650

I was satisfied with the quality of the product and the prompt delivery. However, the installation video was somewhat misleading. Perhaps, it should have included an explanation that the trailer hitch cannot be easily installed UNLESS you remove the rear bumper and showed potential buyers how this is done on this type of vehicle. It took me probably 4 hours because initially I was trying to get this done without removing the bumper. 171426

I have a 2002Chrysler town and country minivan with a rear swaybar. And this hitch installed without any problems. The tricky part was fishing the bolts thru the frame but was not a big deal once the plastic cover is pushed out of the way. The bolts lined up as they should and took less than an hour for the completed installation. 123005

The hitch is awesome but the installation was very difficult. I am an import automotive mechanic and have been at it for over 40 years. This install on a 02' Dodge Caravan was not entirely like the video i watched. First of all, getting past the plastic covering the frame rail entrance was all but impossible. Then you had to get past 1 bolt on the way to the front entry hole. Managed to pull the fish wire off the end of the bolt trying to get past it. At this point i opted to weld the front tab and bolt hole to the frame rail. With the remaining wire fish , i was able to install the back 2 bolts with little difficulty except for the afore mentioned plastic covering in the frame rail. 64283

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch
Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Can a 2002 Dodge Caravan SE with 3.3L Engine Tow a 5000-lb Boat & Trailer
  • Your 2002 Caravan owners manual is a good place to start. Review the rated towing capacity for the vehicle according to the manufacturer. I checked an online copy of the manual and it indicates that the maximum gross towing weight (GTW) rating for the 3.3L model is 1800 lbs unless the vehicle is equipped with a factory tow package, in which case the capacity increases to 3800 lbs. Again, refer to your owners manual to confirm your vehicle tow rating. If your boat/trailer combination...

  • Recommendation to Gain Ground Clearance When Carrying a Scooter Carrier and Scooter
  • What I would recommend is the Curt MultiPurpose Ball mount part # D210. This product will give you 6 inches of rise for your carrier without cutting the tongue weight of your hitch in half like most hitch extenders do. Check out the review video I attached for this product.

  • Curt Class III Hitch for 2006 Dodge Caravan Commercial Version
  • We have two Curt Class III hitches that fit the 2006 Dodge Caravan and both appear on the page I linked for you. Part # 13389 is for the van WITH the Stow-N-Go seats; part # C13362 is for the van WITHOUT this feature. My contact at Curt could not confirm which you'd want to use based on the information I could share with him. Since your commercial version van may or may not have this feature I suggest having a look at the instructions for both hitches (which I linked for you) as well...

  • I do have a solution for you, however the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13362 referenced in your question is not designed to fit your 2006 Chrysler Pacifica. I instead recommend looking at the Curt Trailer Hitch # 13529. This Class III hitch is confirmed to fit your vehicle and will provide a 2 inch receiver opening with a gross trailer weight capacity of 3,500 pounds. No drilling will be required for installation.

If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. 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 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If the ball mount kit...

  • How Does a Curt Stabilizing Strap Work and Install
  • I think the easiest way for me to explain how a Curt Stabilizer Strap part # 18050 would install and be used would be to direct you to a demonstration video we have for this product. Check it out, basically you attach the strap to the cargo carrier or bike rack and then run it to the lip of the hatch or trunk and it helps brace the load when going over bumps.

You can consult your owner's manual to find out your specific towing weight capacity and if you don't know what your Town and Country is equipped with you can take your VIN to a dealership and they can let you know. Since the trailer that you are interested in looks like it could have a Gross Vehicle Weight rating (GVWR) of up...

Instead you would want the Curt hitch part # C13362 as it has been confirmed as a fit for your vehicle. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

From the top of the brackets where it mounts to the frame to the top of the receiver tube is 3-3/8 inches.
