Great fit, fairly easy to line up bolts to holes on frame. Great product.

Great product, had to apply a little force to get the bolts to fit.

Excellent hitch, no issues a year later. Like in my review, had to use a little force to get the bolts to line up.

Great hitch for the money! Super easy install after following a short video I found on youtube. I installed the hitch receiver myself but had the dealer install the Land Rover OEM wiring harness and reprogram the computer. The dealer tried to give me a hard time about using a non OEM receiver but once they got over it, they only did the wiring harness install and everything has worked out great... The best part... it saved me hundreds of dollars! I've since pulled my boat (malibu Wakesetter) several times with no issues at all. I would do it all over again if I needed to.

2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

Installation only took myself and a friend about 3 hours. We could've done this in an hour guaranteed if we'd had a lift. We were halfway through before I remembered that to raise the ride height of the Range Rover; a great feature to have. Working on our backs, with little room is the main reason that it took this long. That and the first time learning curve. If we had to do it again on the same model vehicle, we could do it in an hour. The only other thing is that the Curt trailer hitch receiver is installed easiest if the forward part is maneuvered up around the exhaust pipes first, followed by raising the back end in place and placing the center bolt to hold it in place while the forward two bolts are screwed in place and then the rear two bolts. I was unable to slide it in from the back as was demonstrated in the instructional video for the 2016 RR Sport. Additionally, once the hitch is in place, one has to cut a u shaped opening in the under-body shield and not a window as was shown in the video. The only way that a window will work is if the under-body shield is placed over that rear center piece (shown in one photo with my hand around it) and allowed to dangle while the hitch is positioned. That might prove annoying to do and we never attempted it.




by:

Have not installed yet, but from two previous purchases...etrailer ROCKS! Bolts in with no issues, just a little trim cutting on the rear cover and voila...done!




by:

Awesome fit. Easy to install, now I can final pull a trailer or attach a bike rack. Also I purchased the curt electrical connection as well. It is mounted on top of the hitch. Thanks so much!




by:

Very happy with the craftsmanship and price of my hitch! Made in America tuff




by:

It came bent BUT I’m 99% sure it’s because the frail mail man dropped it at my front door because the thing weighs like 60lbs and was sticking out of the box when I found it. Once I was able to straighten it out and get it installed, it worked great.


Comments
It sounds like that the side brackets were knocked out of alignment. This can happen while in transit to our facility or to you. It did most likely occur when it was ped. We do have a great FAQ that provides ways to move the brackets back into alignment so the hitch can be installed.

I mounted this fairly easily. Needed a third hand only for a minute, otherwise it was truly a one person job. Tows my 4000lb boat/trailer with no issue.




by:

Best service prompt and they have great pricing. Hitch worked great went on in 90 minutes with electrical. Thx so much for getting to me in two days and emailing on the weekend. Instructions were great.




by:
Land Rover Range Rover

It is a solid hitch but unfortunately it is not a "hidden" hitch so it spoils the clean lines of the Range Rover. Quality is excellent




by:

While the construction of the hitch frame was pretty good, there were some tolerance issues I encountered. I had to use a sledge hammer to bend the tabs to the position they needed to be in to get the bolts aligned. I would definitely recommend that you start with the bolts closest to the back then work your way up. Once it was in, fit was great. I cut some holes in the lower trim that helped me reinstall the black cover on the bottom. Would have been nice to have a template that came along with it. and told you where to cut. Installation definitely wasn't a walk in the park but considering the price, worth it. Would definitely buy again.

Rock solid receiver!

2014 Land Rover Range Rover

Super fast shipping from etrailer! Great quality on the hitch receiver and as promised - easy and fast installation on my 2014 Range Rover Sport!




by:

It couldn't have been easier! My dealership wanted over $2000 to install a trailer hitch. I spent a couple hundred instead. And thanks to the pre-drilled and fitted hitch, along with video instructions from etrailer.com, I had it all done in under an hour.




by:

Solid and stable. Works as promised




by:

Yes and yes and yes, it's everything they say it would be, super heavy duty and definitely easy to install, I did it with very minor help, actually I did it with just moral support and tool handing by my wife.
The most difficult part for me was cutting the plastic piece only because I was super sketched about it, in the end it looked flawless after I rasped the edges smooth. I definitely recommend this product.

Make sure you don't tighten any of the nuts until all four are in place and partway threaded, the alignment of all the holes is fairly precise, I wish the holes were slightly wider.
I didn't have a lift so I just raised the suspension to offload plus with my iidTool, but I could se how it would take under van hour with a lift. It took me a total of 1 and 15minutes to actually install the hitch receiver.
Enjoy




by:

Awesome assistance with picking out the correct hitch for my vehicle. Customer service was excellent as was the website and ordering process. Would highly recommend this company to anyone wanting to purchase a part for their auto (like a hitch) and bypass the dealership’s excessive fees for parts and labor.




by:

Perfect fit. It saved me $[xxxx] compared to dealership cost for just the part. I did it myself in under 2 hrs.




by:
2019 Land Rover Range Rover

Great fit for my 2019 Range Rover Sport.
Installed with ease. Directions were very helpful when needed modification for rear cutout.




by:

The hitch arrived in 2 days which was perfect. The packaging could have been better. it was not wrapped- just in a plastic bag secured inside a thin cardboard box. My mechanic said it was slightly bent and he had to work with it for a couple hours to get it secured. I know the delivery people are not careful with boxes, and this came via UPS.




by:
2017 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

etrailer.com came through for us! We needed our hitch quickly and they delivered. Customer service is excellent and their order tracking is very precise.




by:

Works perfectly but needed to be bent about a half inch to make it fit. Had to use a sledge hammer just like another’s review. Also, the Instructions video is wrong. The hitch goes under the plastic frame piece not over. They eventually put it under later but don’t tell you they did. Those 2 issues cost me 2.5 hours. But without that, I could install this myself in about an hour.




by:
2020 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

Fit right in place. I suggest getting the 2 rear bolts started first then put in the other two towards the center.




by:

Easy to install. Took me about hour and a half by myself.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13243 is a fit for a 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport and what I recommend using. It offers bolt-on installation taking most only around an hour and it also has a hidden design which will make for the best look once installed. I have attached an install photo for you as well.

  • Does Curt Hitch C13243 Fit 2016 Range Rover Sport TD6
    I checked with Curt and they do not list any exclusions for the diesel versions of the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport with a diesel engine for their hitch part # C13243 so it would fit and work well. There is no drilling or fascia modifying to install this hitch either. You will need to remove a panel but it can easily be reinstalled once you remove the hitch.

  • Comparing Curt and Draw Tite Hitch for 2016 Range Rover Sport
    The Draw Tite hitch part # 75229 and the Curt hitch part # C13243 that you referenced are very similar in design. The big differences are that the Curt is made in the USA and the Draw Tite does not have the recommendation to use a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack. Reese actually was made by same company as Draw Tite, so if you were wanting a Reese hitch the Draw Tite basically is that.

    For your 2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport we have the Draw Tite hitch part # 75229 which fits with the full size spare. This is the best option for you since the Curt equivalent does not fit with the full size spare. This hitch will work great with your Thule bike rack as well.

For that, what you will need is the Replacement Hardware Kit for Trailer Hitches # RHK. If you'd like the replacement hardware, to order just lick # RHK, enter "C13243" in the "Hitch Item Number" box, select "Curt" from the drop-down menu.

  • How High Will The Curt Receiver Sit Once Installed On A 2020 Range Rover Sport
    Though we have yet to get the chance to install the Curt # C13243 on a 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Sport, we have done an install with the Draw-Tite # 75229 on a 2016. When this was done, we got 13 inches from the ground to the inside top of the receiver, which should be very similar, if not the same, as installing the # C13243 on your 2020. Determining the correct rise will then depend on how high the bottom of the trailer coupler is from the ground. You technically have plus or minus...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
    For your 2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport the Curt hitch part # C13243 is a confirmed fit and would work great. It has great towing capacities and is mostly hidden too since only the hitch opening hangs below the rear bumper. If you need trailer wiring too the 7-way kit part # 118275 is a confirmed fit and installs easily.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Fit for a 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
    We carry two trailer hitch receivers that fit your 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport; the Draw-Tite # 75229 and the Curt # C13243. Between the two I recommend the Draw-Tite because Curt requires a strap to be used if you're ever using the hitch for a bike rack or cargo carrier. Since you're going to be towing this may not matter to you. In which case it's pretty much a toss up because both hitches are very similar and both high quality. I've linked the install details to both of them...

  • Hitch Recommendation For 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
    The Curt hitches like part # C13243 for the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Sport require the stabilization strap part # 18050 with accessories because the Land Rovers are not designed to handle a lot of tongue weight and accessories like bike racks are considered all tongue weight which puts a lot of leverage on the setup. Both the Draw-Tite Hitch part # 75229 and the Curt hitch will be recessed under the bumper because they install exactly the same. I have attached a video snip showing...

    Absolutely! Starting with the hitch for your 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Sport, I highly recommend the Curt Class III # C13243 because of its superior black powder coat finish that tends to last longer than those from other manufacturers. This custom hitch will use existing holes in the vehicle's frame rails for a simple bolt-on (no-drill) installation and it features a robust 8,000 pound towing weight capacity.

    As long as you have 7 inches from the center of the hitch pin on your 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport to the outside edge of your rear bumper the Kuat NV # NV22G would fit and have clearance to fold up. Judging by what install pictures look like for the hitches for your vehicle like the Curt # C13243 I don't think you'd have an issue, but since I don't know what hitch you have your best option will be to measure to find out for sure.

    I'm pleased to advise you that the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13243 is a fit for the 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE.

    Both the Draw Tite hitch part # 75229 and the Curt part # C13243 are really solid options for your 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport and they're both really similar in design but the one difference they have is the brackets toward the front of the vehicle.

    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13243 is a great option for a 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport and it won't void any warranty.
