Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2007 Ford Crown Victoria - Curt

Today on this 2007 Crown Victoria, were going to install part number 13707 from Curt. Now this is what the hitch looks like once its installed on the vehicle. Next well go ahead and give you some measurements to help you out in selecting some accessories such as ball mount, a bicycle rack, or cargo carrier. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground will be 13-1/4 and from the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper will be about 5-3/8.Now well go ahead and show you how the hitch is installed. First thing were going to do is to get underneath the vehicle and our two straps have to be moved from the frame. Well reattach these straps at the end of the install.

Then well go ahead and hold up our hitch underneath the bottom of the frame and well get into position about one inch away from the end of the frame. Then well go ahead and clamp it into place. Now you definitely want to have an extra set of hands to help do this while you hold the hitch and install the clamps. With our hitch clamped up well go ahead and use a half inch drill bit to mark our holes. Then well go ahead and drill it out with a pilot hole bit and then go back at it with a half inch bit.

Now well go ahead and lower the hitch.Next we can go ahead and install our hardware where well take the small block with square hole and carriage bolt and install that into the location closet to the bumper on each side. Now well go ahead and fish wire the same block from the large hole to the end of the frame up to the forward hole on the hitch. First off well take our bolt leader; well push it through the hole and then out our access hole then pull the block and the bolt through. All right were installed, we can go ahead and put the hitch back up into position, well go ahead and add the flange nuts to the hardware going towards the front of the vehicle and then well let our hitch tilt down. On the bolt closet to the bumper well add a spacer and use a flange nut and well snug it down.Well check to make sure the hitch is level and if it is we can go ahead and tighten it down, if not we can go ahead and add another spacer.

With all the hardware installed the way we want it, we can go ahead and tighten down the bolts and then well torque the bolts down as specified in the instructions and then well go ahead a reinstall the straps. With that it will finish it for our install of part number 13707 from Curt on our 2007 Ford Crown Victoria.

Installed on a 2008 Ford Police Interceptor. The end result was excellent. The hitch is hidden except for the square part in the middle that you would use for a hook up. I bought this trailer hitch not for towing, but to install a thing called a "superbumper" which absorbs impact from rear end collisions. My last vehicle was hit in the front and the rear by two separate drivers in the same week. I wanted to make sure I protected the rear of my police interceptor (I already installed a push bar on the front). To install the Curt trailer hitch, I used the help of a standard scissors jack (hitch is heavy). I put the scissors jack on the driver side and jacked up the left side of the hitch. Once that was jacked up I held up the right side of the hitch with my hands. Then I marked a hole with a pen. I put the hitch down and drilled the first hole. Once that was drilled I screwed the right side of the hitch to the frame. Now I drilled the second hole and screwed that in too. I then moved to the left side of the hitch (still held up by the scissors jack). I drilled two holes on this side. I ran into a little trouble with a bar that is above the frame, so I had to make the rear left hole a little bigger to fit the screw in aside of the bar. Last step was to put the screw in the last hole. The hitch was then perfectly lined up and installed. Here are four tips that will help with the install. Use a scissors jack instead of clamps (it allows you to line up the hitch perfectly onto the frame). Use a small pilot drill bit and gradually drill bigger holes until you drill a half inch hole (I used four drill bits per hole). Make your holes a little bigger than a half inch for ease getting the screws in (I pushed a smaller drill bit onto the sides of the holes to make more space). Wear nitrile gloves and safety goggles when installing (the metal shards from the frame a hot). I highly recommend this Curt Trailer Hitch. 234690

This went on a 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis. Did lots of comparing before getting the Curt hitch. VERY glad I did !!!!!. This is SUPERBLY made. every weld is perfect and the entire thing is sealed preventing any water from getting in. it fits PERFECT. totally hides under the car except for the receiver and safety chain loop. you have to almost get on the ground to see the drawbar. The black powder coat is very glossy and well applied. so pretty you hate that it won't be seen !!!. the back of the receiver box is open all the way so no debris can collect and there is no lip to limit how far a bar can go back. the recommended mount fits perfect and is out far enough but not to far. my Yakima bike rack fits right in and still has about 3 inches gap to the bumper which is just right. My husband put this on by himself ( I watched !!! ) without any trouble. he kept the car on the ground and laid on cardboard and used a floor jack on each side under the vertical plate . he jacked it up evenly and moved the hitch as needed. once it contacted the bottom of the car a bit ( not so tight you can't budge it ) he measured and made it even side to side and front to back, sprayed the mount holes with grey primer and let it down. he drilled with an 1/8 inch bit with anti walk tip, then 1/4 inch then 1/2 inch. wiggle the drill and make the holes a little bigger and oval them a bit. THEN drop the bolts in and make sure they fit !!!!!. the fish wire is AWESOME !!!!. now remove the bolts and put on a good coat of glossy black rust fighting paint where the hitch goes make sure to cover the bare metal from the drill holes . after it dried he slid the hitch under the car on the cardboard and put the bolts in. then lifted one side onto the bolts and started the nuts, did the same on the other side and then tightened it up. making one last wiggle into place before torque wrenching the nuts. he then put some rust proofing paint on the nuts and bolts to keep them salt free on our winter roads. this hitch looks great !!!!!. He said sharp drill bits are a must . and wear safety glasses as the metal shaving really fly. hope this helps. 43247

When I received the hitch and wiring kit there was a hole in the bottom of the box and half the staples were pulled loose. After opening the box the rest of the way the small box inside containing the wiring kit was open and the wire connectors and the bubble pack wiring kit were laying loose inside the larger carton. It will be installed on Friday and I hope that none of the pieces laying losses by the hole in the box fell out. See pictures. The first one I bought was excellent, I hope this one is as well! 410901

I installed this on my 2004 Ford Crown Victoria. It fit perfectly. It really was as easy to install as they said. I did it myself in my driveway and it took me about one hour using a floor jack to hold it up in place. The only problem I ran into was the holes nearest the bumper. There is a cylinder from the 5mph bumper that made getting the rear bolts in place kind of difficult. You have to wiggle them around to get them in place and I would recommend going up in size on the drill bit for all the holes. 275816

i put my curt hitch on my 1999 mercury grand marquis bye myself today 6-10-11 . i got out my motorcycle lift jack and it has two ruber pads about a foot apart on the jack, making it balance more easily as i jacked it up to the underside of the frame. just as the movie and directions said to mark the holes with spray paint for the bolts. only they say it's easier with another set of hands or a buddy to help lift it up to mark the holes. but with my motorcycle jack for the lifting it worked out real good. i'm 66 years old and it did take me about two hours. i marked the holes with spray paint measured both sides. of course i didn't put full pressure on the jack till i had the curt hitch right where i wanted to mark. i hit with a two bye four and a hammer to shift it one way or the other till i was happy with where i wanted it, then put more pressure on the jack to hold it for the final marking. there little movie on the install is the key factor and helped me alot with the boring of the marked holes and the fish wire for pulling the bolts inside the frame channel. had no problems what so ever with the bolts that had to be fished thru the channel and new holes. i like there hitch and am very satisfied with the install of it. thank you etrailer for a superb product and instructions.a no problem job for me, maybe a little more time than others for me. but again i done it my way and bye myself. i will recommend the hitches to anybody. there built and made well. 16711

Ordered the Curt class III hitch on 7/3, received and installed on 7/9. Shipping was fast and the little bit I dealt with customer service they were prompt. Installed on my 1999 Merc Grand Marquis I am not a real "fix it" guy, I have limited skill sets in this area but when I was told it would be $150 to install from my local shop I said I would do it myself. Install took about an hour and a half. Lifted the car with a hydraulic floor jack and set the rear up a foot or two on stands. I used the floor jack to help hold the hitch in place while I marked the holes for drilling. Someone else had mentioned a weld about an inch back from the rear frame rail and I had that also. Just butted the hitch up against that and drilled away. Used 4 bits of varying sizes to eventually get the holes big enough for the bolts. This was the most time consuming part. That line to fish the bolts through the frame rail was awesome, took maybe a minute to get each side ready and through. I found it easy to use the floor jack here and help lineup the hitch without knocking the bolts back inside the frame. Looks like a quality hitch, can't wait to use it! 47359

There was paint chipped off if the hitch just under the receiver hole about the size of a quarter. Not pleased with that. But other then that it got here just in time to install and I could pull a float in my hometown parade. It fit perfect on my 2002 ford crown Victoria (retired police interceptor. Thank you etrailer.com 193923

Excellent - I was impressed with the quality, engineering and detail. The package - CURT hitch, 4-pole hard-wire kit, 4-pole to 7-pole adapter, extended ball mount, ball & pin was installed on my prized 89 Ford LTD Crown Victoria. I installed it by myself, without a helping hand, and once I got all the tools together it did take longer than the estimated 45 minutes - I would double that to 90 minutes. Once I had the rear up on stands, I positioned the hitch under the frame by suspending one end with a hanger wire, then the other end. I snugged the hitch up to the frame with a floor jack and double checked the alignment. From there it was a breeze - Drilled the 4 holes, snaked the bolts into place, and torqued to specs. Highly recommend CURT hitches & etrailer for all your trailer needs. 17417

Yes! Town Car owners like to pull trailers with their Lincolns! If I had to change one thing to make this into a 5-Star product, it would be the length of the "2-inch" receiver square tube. It needs to extend rear-ward by an additional 2 inches. I had to hunt for a ball mount hitch that was 2 inches longer to adequate give clearance from the rear bumper. The dual exhaust tailpipe hangars didn't need to be touched for the Town Car. Two photos attached - I hope this helps. The photo shows a ball mount with 2-3/4 inch rise to give bottom of coupler 14 inches over the ground. 362713

Well pleased. The 13707 Curt hitch looked like a piece of artwork when I opened it. Had a notion to hang it on wall in den. It took me a while to install because i worked alone and am 92 yrs old, plus drill bits were not sharp. Used jack stands and floor jack to lift hitch and hold into place while I drilled mounting holes using hitch as a guide. Once holes were drilled, it was a easy to get bolt in place using the pull wire. Tightened them up and voilla, I had a hitch Only other difficulty was getting plastic pan down from under trunk floor. Screws were too rusty. I used a Stanley knife to cut around rusted screws and got it down OK. Even the exhaust hanger worked well. I did not use any spacers between hitch and frame, all fit well without them. WELL PLEASED. I have pics but don't know how to send. Will send from I phone maybe. 450870

I installed the Curt 13707 on a 2005 Crown Victoria Police Interceptor. The install was fairly easy and straight forward. The instructions recommend centering the hitch and setting it one inch back on the frame. I'm not sure if it would be the same on earlier models but mine had a weld one in back on the frame that I could butt the frame up against. I would recommend a second person to hold the hitch while you marked where to drill. When drilling the 1/2" bolt holes, use the drill to ream the holes slightly since its incredibly tight once you get the wire fishing tool onto the threads. Also, with the rear holes, you may need to make the holes a little oblong to clear the bumper tube that is inside the frame. I installed this hitch by myself with hand tools in about an hour. Pretty simple and straight forward install and a stout hitch. 9481

The fit was nice and snug. But in my 2001 grand marquis the shock absorbers for the rear bumper go thru the channel of the frame. So, drilling the holes were a little trickey. Other than that everything worked out fine. 139973

The hitch arrived a day earlier than I expected, pleasant surprise. The box was oversized for the hitch but it was undamaged when I received it, I'm surprised. The fit on my car was PERFECT! My frame has a curve to it and the hitch followed it as though it was OEM installed, it looks as though it was. Just like the installation pictures on your website. I'm impressed with the installation tool that was packaged with the hitch, it was very helpful installing the bolts inside the enclosed frame. I would attach some pictures but the car is already on a trip. I ecieved an email it was shipped on a Sunday, wow, thanks etrailer.com for the exceptional service. 312218

Main reason for purchasing was the hitch was American Made! Second free shipping! Shipped in a decent amount of time and packed well. I have had a chance to use the hitch yet. I had a trailer place install it so I cannot comment about the installation. I also want to add that I had talked to Titus the night before I ordered this hitch and he was very personable , professional and had excellent customer service skills. There was no hype to buy the product whats so ever! In fact he made me want to come back and do business with your company! And that is what I did. Support American workers buy American made products when you can! 41224

The Curt class lll hitch for my 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis arrived sooner than I thought it would, was easy to install and works and looks great. The videos and instructions were a big help. I used a motorcycle jack to lift the hitch in place and lay on my back under the car drilling holes and installing hardware and the hitch. Took my time and everything went real easy. I strongly advise a heavy-duty drill and bits, which I had. I am seventy-five years old and the hardest part was getting back up once I got on the ground. Thanks etrailer, everything was perfect. 237559

Place order on Sunday. Received hitch on Wednesday. Super shipping and handling. Hitch is well made and easy to install. I watched the installation video on-line and made some changes. I held the hitch in place with two "C" clamps and marked the hole locations with a center punch. Then removed the hitch, drilled the holes and installed the bolts. The wire bolt installation tool is the best thing since sliced bread. Lifted hitch in place and installed nuts on bolts and torqued to 75 ft. lbs. Installation took approximately one hour. Great product. 56992

Hello, I bought this class 3/4 hitch for my 2010 Crown Vic. It had some minor fit issues, but nothing that wasn't overcome fairly quickly. The only issue was with the nut plate that required getting creative at the bumper end to try and hold while torquing. The nut plate needs to be fitted a bit better so it does not spin in the tube. the front end was fine as the tube is narrower and the nut plate was held in place by the tube. The design required every shim to be used to level the hitch. Everything I needed was in the kit, which was good. Joe 433424

I call a local shop and they said they would install it for me.So friday at 8am i was there just to have three employee look at it and look under the car and said they did't want to install it so i told them to put it back in the truck and i would take care of it myself, i come back home and back the car up on a set of ramps and i install the bar in about 2 hours bye my self if i was about 25 years younger i could of done it in about 45 minutes.Thanks for a great tow bar at a great price. not bad for a 72 year old guy. 155562

I do not intend to tow anything with my hitch. I bought it so I could attach a bicycle rack on my wife's Mercury Grand Marquis. This hitch is a quality product, easy install. I used a lift to raise the car in order to drill the holes, and then a motorcycle jack and jackstands on the ground to install the hitch. Two persons would make this install a breeze, I did mine single-handedly. Ordering was easy and shipping time was reasonable. I would surely do it again with etrailer.com. 253752

Recieved order in two days! This hitch fit perfect on a 2007 Crown Vic Intercepter. A small set of vise grip clamps fit nice in the frame tube and held the hitch in place and allowed you to tap it to center it up and mark the hole locations. 1/4 pilot hole followed by a 1/2 toward the front of the car and a 5/8 toward the bumper to allow clearance of bumper tube. Nice quality product easy installation. This was one thing that went just like its supposed to! Etrailer.com Rocks! 39971

received new hitch and wiring for my 96 Mercury in a few days. I was not looking forward to drilling and trying to get the bolts into the frame but it actually went along pretty smoothly. Frame drilled good, the special wire in the kit to fish the bolts into the holes worked very good. The electrical wiring harness also fit quick and easy. All told it took me 1 1/2 hours. I'm very impressed with the heavy construction of the hitch and the powder coat finish. 27152

1995 Lincoln Town Car Installed easily with supplied instructions, the tool provided to pull the bolts into the frame made the job so simple. I have only needed to use the hitch a couple times but it is ready and waiting when needed. Paint/coating on it is holding up very well and I am a happy customer. All of this at a great price, I could not ask for any more. I certainly would consider purchasing other new products as needed from this company. 372051

Installed in less then 2 hours (would have been quicker but I had dull drill bits), perfect fit SUPER PRICE, it was less then half of what others charged. Loved the instruction video, I really can't say enough, I'm perfectly satisfied. I would send pictures but honestly I'm just to lazy and don't want to take the time to do it, sorry. I will reccomend you to others and I saved your website on my desk top in case I need another hitch. Thank You 33226

The Curt Trailer Hitch that I purchased is truly a work of art. Being a tool and die maker by trade I am always looking at mechanical items for the quality of welds, machining and finish. The box design of the Curt hitch keeps mud and other junk out of the business end of the hitch and the welds are first rate, smooth and full. The powder coat finish is superior to a painted finish and should last for years. Installation was fast and easy. 68403

Installed on an "07 Towncar. Took longer than suggested because I had to use homemade wooden ramps on the garage floor, and I'm 78 years young. Lots of up and downs. Everything works perfectly. Was reluctant to drill holes in frame but I made them and they worked perfectly. No trouble with fish wire. No trouble with wiring harness. Hooked to boat trailer and went fishing. 117448

Product was very good quality, perfect fit, good finish. Problem was that the information printed on the Internet site said that "no drilling" is required. There were no holes in the bottom plate of the frame--only in the sides of the frame. So, I had to spend nearly an hour assembling my large 90 degree angle drill and bits, and then drilling out the holes. 105319

Hitch works well. The installation video on the site was nice also. The only issue that I had was with the hardware. One of the bolts in the kit had no threads. The local hardware didn't carry grade 8 carriage bolts. So I used a die set and cut the threads myself. Might be a good idea to inspect the hardware before installation day just in case. 204041

I purchased a set of items for a complete "new" install of a hitch, ball mount, ball, pin and wiring for my sedan. Ordering was easy, shipping was fast, parts were in excellent condition and everything was correct. The job went great! I have I high quality hitch system and saved a lot of cash. I highly recommend etrailer. 443083

Being a mechanic and fairly good fabricator I've always made my own hitch but for the price, quality and ease of installation this is the way to go. Also I'll be able to un-bolt this and put it on another vehicle if needed. The fish wire it came with was awesome, I always wondered how they got those bolts way in there. 303360

Excellent comprehensive videos and a well-managed web page allowed me to select the correct part for my vehicle at a fair price.

Installation on our 2007 Lincoln Town Car was about a two hour job for this (do-it-yourself) 80-year old owner. I used a floor jack to properly position the hitch up against the frame and simply followed the provided well-written and illustrated installation steps. Piece of cake!! Al 236107

The hitch arrived promptly and in good condition. It appears to be well made and heavy duty. I probably won't get it installed until maybe next weekend. (lots harder for one old man laying in his driveway than for two young guys with the car up on a lift like in the video) 56431

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


  • Do You have a Class III Hitch for a 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis
  • Class III hitches have a higher capacity when compared to a Class I or II. Class I and II hitches are also 1-1/4 inch receiver openings, where as the Class III are 2 inch openings. We do have a Class III hitch available for a 2004 Grand Marquis, it is part # 41116. It can pull up to 3,500 pounds weight carrying, and if you add a weight distribution system, it can pull up to 6,000 pounds. The Class I is limited to 2,000 pounds. The Class II can pull up to 3,500 pounds too, but can only...

  • Will the Draw-Tite QSP Trailer Hitch Silencer and Cover Work on a 2" Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • I do have a hitch cover and anti-rattle sleeve option for you, however, the Draw-Tite QSP Trailer Hitch Silencer and Cover part # 63080 will not fit a 2" Curt trailer hitch receiver as the collar on the outside of the hitch receiver is too large. In order to cover the receiver opening on a 2" Curt trailer hitch receiver like part # 13707 I recommend using the Curt Rubber Tube Cover part # C22272. For anti-rattle purposes I recommend using the Brophy Stabilizer Bracket for 2" Hitch Receiver...

  • Can I Swap Hitches from Multiple Vehicles When I need to Tow with a Different Vehicle
  • Part # 75118 will only fit a 2001-2004 Ford Escape/Mazda Tribute. It is not swappable onto a 1990 Taurus or 1998 Grand Marquis. The best hitch we have for towing a boat with your 1998 Mercurcy Grand Marquis is a Class III hitch, part # 13707. The strongest hitch available for a 1990 Ford Taurus is a Class II. Our most popular Class II for your vehicle is part # 36252. Please note, Class I and II are 1-1/4 inch receiver openings.

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a 2003 Ford Crown Victoria and 4k Travel Trailer
  • First, you are going to want to make sure that the hitch is rated for use with weight distribution. Not all hitches are. There should be a sticker on the hitch that will indicate its capacity when using weight distribution. You have to do the same for the vehicle by consulting the owners manual. If you need a hitch that is rated for weight distribution you can use # 13707. I have included a link to a video showing a typical installation and a link to the instructions. For weight distribution...

  • Holding a Wheelchair on a Thule Trunk Mounted Bike Rack
  • A Bike Rack like the Thule Passage 2, part # TH910XT, is capable of holding up to 35 pounds in each of its carriers. Though its not a recommended use, these can hold manual, folding wheelchairs. This is an exceedingly dangerous use of the Thule Passage though. You will be much better off in the long term adding a hitch like part # 13707, a Class III Curt hitch to carry a traditional cargo carrier. I recommend the MaxxTow 30x50, part # MT70106 as a great fit for wheelchair carriers....

  • Does the Exhaust have to be Modified to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 1994 Lincoln Town Car
  • To install the Curt Trailer Hitch, # 13707, on a 1994 Lincoln Town Car, you should not have to modify the exhaust in order for this hitch to fit the vehicle. I have included a link to the installation details for this hitch below. They state that relocation of the passenger side exhaust bracket is required on 2003 and later Town Cars. I have also included a couple of installation videos showing the installation of this hitch on similar vehicles. To complete your towing set up, I recommend...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for a 2002 Mercury Grand Marquis Towing a 1974 Play Mor Camper
  • A brake controller and trailer brakes are recommended any time the weight of the trailer being towed exceeds 50 percent of the weight of the vehicle. In your case the 2002 Mercury Grand Marquis weighs somewhere around 3900 lbs or slightly more, so If the gross trailer weight loaded and ready to tow is below 1,950 lbs then a brake controller would not be required but would still be a good idea for safety and would help with wear and tear on the vehicle brakes and suspension. We have articles...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for Towing a Motorcycle Trailer with a 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis
  • We have several hitches available for your 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis. I would recommend a Class 3 hitch for towing your motorcycle trailer and because the 2 inch receiver opening will provide many more options for accessories in the future. The Draw-Tite Class 3 Max-E-Loader Trailer Hitch, item # 41116, would be a good selection and will require a spacer Kit, ordered on the product page, for installation. The Curt Class 3 Trailer Hitch, item # 13707, is also a good choice and comes with...

  • The Curt 2 Inch Class III Hitch, # 13707, On A 1999 Ford Crown Victoria Seems Too Low To The Ground
  • The Curt 2 Inch Class III Hitch, # 13707, is the correct hitch for your 1999 Ford Crown Victoria. It should measure 10-7/8 inches from the ground to the top of the receiver opening. If you are measuring to the bottom of the hitch it will be about 8-7/8 inches since it is a 2 inch hitch. This is not a problem with that vehicle. If towing, you do need to use the recommended ball mount which is Draw-Tite Mount, # 2753. This ball mount when used in the 2-3/4 inch rise position will put the...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis for Towing Small Boat
  • For your 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis the Curt hitch part # 13707 has been confirmed as a fit and would have the towing capacities of 4,000 lbs total trailer weight and 400 lbs tongue weight. We have suspension enhancements available for your vehicle, but since I don't know the weight of your boats/trailer it's hard to say if they would be necessary. The Firestone part # F4107 has been confirmed as a fit for your vehicle though. Be sure not to also exceed the towing capacities of your...

  • Exhaust Hanger Mods-Installing Curt Class III # 13707 on 2004 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor
  • The Curt Class III hitch you referenced, part # 13707 fits a number of different vehicles, the install procedure can vary a bit from vehicle to vehicle. The only vehicle that would require modification of the exhaust hanger is the 2003 and later Lincoln Town Car. The install procedure on your 2004 Crown Vic Police Interceptor would be identical to what's shown in the video I've linked for you. If you'll be towing with the vehicle, you'll want to add the following to complete your towing...

  • Trailer Hitch and Brake Controller Plus Wiring Recommendation for 2009 Mercury Grand Marquis
  • The Curt hitch part # 13707 is a confirmed fit for your 2009 Mercury Grand Marquis so it would be a great place to start like you mentioned for towing with your vehicle. For wiring you will need to start with a 4-way (if you do not have one). For that you would want the # 119179KIT. 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.

  • What is the Overall Width of the Curt Trailer Hitch # 13707
  • The overall width of the Curt Class III Trailer Hitch, item # 13707, is 51-1/8 inches. The on center width of the holes farthest back on the vehicle (closest to the rear bumper) measure 49-1/4 inches apart, plus or minus 1/8 inch. The on center width of the holes farthest forward when mounted under the vehicle are 46-3/4 inches apart. We have several hitches available for the 2006 Mercedes-Benz M-Class, I have added a link to those below.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendations for a 2003 Ford Crown Victoria with Dual Exhaust
  • For your 2003 Ford Crown Victoria I recommend the Curt hitch # 13707. This is a Class III hitch with a 2 inch receiver rated for 400 pounds tongue weight and 4,000 pounds gross trailer weight so it covers the capacity of the vehicle. Because your Crown Vic has dual exhaust there is some slight modification to the exhaust that will be needed to install this or any hitch for the vehicle. Its actually not all that difficult and I have included a link to a video showing an example installation...

  • Will Using a Class 3 Trailer Hitch Affect the Air Ride Suspension on a 2004 Lincoln Town Car
  • The hitch will not interfere with the air ride system in your 2004 Lincoln Town Car. What you do need to be aware of is the vehicle towing capacity. These numbers will be in your vehicle owner manual. The air ride system will handle whatever the vehicle can. If these capacities are less than 3,000 gross towing weight or 350 pounds tongue weight, it would not be safe to tow your boat with the Town Car.

  • Hitch and Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2008 Mercury Grand Marquis Needing a 3 inch Rise
  • For a Class III 2 inch hitch for your 2008 Mercury Grand Marquis you would want the Curt Hitch part # 13707. When we installed this hitch on a similar vehicle we found that from the ground to the top of the hitch opening was 13-1/4 inches. Assuming the rental company you talked to was right, and their trailers will be about 16 inches from the ground to the bottom of the coupler you would need about a 3 inch rise. I think your best solution would be to get the etrailer.com ball mount...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver and Motorcycle Carrier for a 2003 Crown Victoria
  • Our most popular motorcycle carrier is the MaxxTow MaxxHaul # MT70101. It has a 41 inch ramp to make it easier to load the bike. The maximum weight capacity is 400 pounds. If your 2003 Crown Victoria doesn't already have a hitch you'll need Class III, 2 inch hitch receiver. I suggest the Curt # 13707 because it has a higher capacity than the Draw-Tite. You'll want to check your car's owner's manual for it's capacity because you'll be limited by the lowest rated component.

There should be a sticker on the hitch that lists the capacities using weight distribution if the hitch is compatible. If it is not then you would want to add a different hitch such as # 13707.

On the product page you would need to enter the part number of the hitch you have and select the manufacturer of the hitch that you have. Most likely you have the Curt # 13707 or the Draw Tite # 41116 which are the two Class III hitches we offer for your 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis.

I've attached a video of an installation on a 1996 model and they didn't change anything between 96 and 97 models of the Crown Vic or the Grand Marquis. You will need to drill 4 holes. I recommend starting with a pilot hole about 1/4 inch and then making the final hole 9/16 inch.

Problem is your motorcycle weighs 400 lbs so there would be no capacity left over for the carrier. You would have to use this hitch with a small trailer to transport your motorcycle.
