2019 ToyotaC-HR

Easy to follow online video at etrailer for my exact car. Install went smooth and easy and the shipping speed was out of this world fast,ordered on a thursday night and ups delivered it before noon on saturday awesome job etrailer I will be back to your site to shop for sure and have already recommended u to friends and family.


Perfect Fit, Thank You.
And Thank You
for the excellent installation instructions
and the video. As you can imagine it is a little scary taking
apart a brand new car to install a hitch so the instructions
and the video were invaluble. This is the 2nd or 3rd time I
bought from and No Regrets.

The hitch has been working perfectly.

2021 ToyotaC-HR

Great hitch and was easy for me to install using the video.
I was offered faster shipping from etrailer on the other CHR compatible Curt C11567.
Etrailer could not tell me the difference so I talked to Curt. The C11490 is end welded - bar to the end plate. The C11567 is thru welded to the end plate so the end of the bar goes thru the end plate and the bar end is open to the elements. Not sure why etrailer technicians list the C11567 as a 5/10 install compared to a more complex 10/10 for the C11490. Curt indicated the install is the same.


All arrived ok. Looks good going to install next week


This hitch was not a quick install, but the etrailer instructions and video made it straight forward task that only took time. After the install the hitch was completely hidden and only the receiver could be seen. It was perfect for my bike rack on the back of the small Toyota CH-R. Thank you!!


Everything worked perfectly easy installation on both items

2019 ToyotaC-HR

Perfect fit, set up and install were quite easy. Removing the bumper and putting all back together takes about 1hr 1/2 alone for one person. Happy with the product specifically for Toyota CH-R. Thanks for the new trailer hitch!

  • Best Trailer Hitch for 2019 Toyota CH-R To Carry Bike Rack
    The best trailer hitch for your 2019 Toyota CH-R to carry a bike rack is, hands-down, the Curt Trailer Hitch # C11490 because it gives your bike rack the most ground clearance. When we test fit the Curt hitch and (now discontinued) Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch 24962 on a Toyota CH-R, we found that the Curt hitch offered about 3/4" more in ground clearance, and you can see the difference in how both hitches fit in the accompanying photo. While 3/4" may not seem like much, it can mean the difference...

  • Installation of Trailer Hitch on 2018 Toyota C-HR
    When installing the Curt # C11490 trailer hitch, underbody panels must be temporarily removed, as does fascia, although it does get reinstalled, as you can see in the instructions for the Curt hitch that I added. The modification that does need to be done is to the tabs on the end of the bumper beam, which need to be flattened down to ensure they are flush, which you can see in the cutout of the instructions.

  • What is Difference Between Curt Hitches that Fit 2021 Toyota C-HR
    For your 2021 Toyota C-HR the two hitches are basically the same which is very interesting but the difference between them is very subtle which allows the # C11490 to fit all models of the 2018 to 2021 Toyota C-HR whereas the # C11567 happens to also fit the 2019 through 2021 Toyota Corolla hatchbacks as well as the C-HR models. So honestly Curt probably should have just the one part number but they have both.

  • Comparing Curt Hitches C11567 and C11490 for a 2019 Toyota C-HR
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11567 and part # C11490 which are both fits for a 2019 Toyota C-HR are the same for intents and purposes. I recommend going with whichever is more cost effective at the time. The former hitch however is compatible with a Toyota Corolla as well but that is it as far as differences go.

  • Finding Someone to Install 2020 Toyota C-HR
    For your 2020 Toyota C-HR both the Curt hitch # C11490 and the # C11567 are a confirmed fit and are essentially the same thing. To find an installer in your area the best solution would be to check with local mechanics to you with a good reputation and allow them to install the hitch.

  • Trailer Hitch that Fits 2020 Toyota C-HR
    For your 2022 Toyota C-HR we have the Draw Tite hitch part # DR94FR as a confirmed fit. The Curt you mentioned is not a fit and would not work. If you need trailer wiring too the Tekonsha part # 118756 is the best option as it's most reliable and easiest install.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2018 Toyota CH-R
    For this vehicle, I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # 24962 which installs at the same location as the Curt hitch # C11490 which is a fit for this vehicle. This hitch install requires the removal of the bumper/fascia to install the hitch prior to reinstalling the bumper/fascia. I have attached an install video for you.

  • Trailer Hitch & Hitch Mount Bike Rack
    Your 2019 Toyota C-HR is only compatible with Class I hitch receivers. This will limit you to carrying just two bikes. The hitch receiver that I recommend is the one you attached to your question, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4", part # C11490. I like this hitch receiver because once it is installed you can only see the receiver opening. This hitch receiver has a maximum tongue weight of 200 lbs and a maximum gross trailer weight of 2,000 lbs. If you are...

  • Parts Needed to Tow Small Trailer with Motorcycle with 2018 Toyota C-HR
    Your vehicle's owner's manual is always going to be the best source to find towing capacity, but from what I could find in my own research the towing capacity is going to be roughly 1300-lbs. Based off that, you would be able to tow a small trailer with a motorcycle. For a hitch I recommend using the Curt # C11490 because the concealed design it going to help give you a bit more ground clearance, which will be especially helpful for a smaller couple like the C-HR.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver and Towing Components for 2018 Toyota C-HR
    For your 2018 Toyota C-HR, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # C11490 along with the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118756 and the ball mount # C45521. I like the clean look of this hitch. The recommended parts above will give you a towing system when you add a hitch ball like # A-80 for 1-7/8 inch diameter or # A-82 for a 2 inch diameter along with a pin and clip # F-4.
