Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" - C11289

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (10 Customer Reviews)

Perfect for light-duty towing, this custom, vehicle trailer hitch receiver features fully welded, gloss powder coated steel construction. Drawbar sold separately.

- C11289

The hitch install was very clean and easy. The instructions were very clear that I would have to enlarge one hole on the frame of my car. Having access to a hoist made that step a easier but would not have been necessary. I was able to do the actual install in my driveway in less than 30 minutes. The hitch has a very high quality finish and the dimensions/ holes were spot on. Installed it tucks up to the bodywork very well for a look appreciated by a neat nick like me. Thanks for stocking a great product. 474852

Perfect Fit for my 2003 Toyota Celica. Took less than 30 minutes to install. Hitch arrived 1 day earlier than expected. Thanks for the great service. 746028

The hitch was a perfect fit, easy to install and was clearly made for my Toyota Echo. I am still amazed at how simple and easy it was to order the right hitch and how perfectly it fit and went on. Thank you. 729171

2004 Toyota Celica

The hitch bolted right up to existing threads on the Celica frame, nicely avoiding the exhaust system. However, the draw bar receiver forced the plastic chassis shroud below the bumper to deflect upwards a bit. So not a perfect fit. Consulted trailer technician who recommended against putting a shim between the hitch and frame to lower it. So I put some foam tape on the receiver to protect the body paint and things seem ok. 568167

After a year, the hitch continues to work well.

Paid for 3-5 day shipping, got it in 2! Took longer to unwrap it than it did to install it. Perfect fit. Couldn't be more pleased! 437191

2001 Toyota Celica

Great product at a great price. I was also really happy to see it came with the bolts and washers which replaced my old rusted ones on the frame. Holds the bike rack with the two bikes well. Fits perfectly and it was extremely easy to install. 412301

Thank you for following up with me. The trailer hitch has been excellent! Its a great product for the price and it serves its purpose perfectly.

Item works well and was easy to install. Came with instructions and all bolts needed. Fast delivery. Great price. 406439

Still strong a year later. Just tore the cardboard off since i left it on to try to keep that new look as long as possible.

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11289 Fit a 2001 Toyota Echo
    You're correct the reviews are for later models but the Curt trailer hitch receiver, part # C11289, does fit the 2001 Toyota Echo. It's a 1-1/4 inch, Class I trailer hitch that bolts on with no drilling. I've linked the install details for you to take a look at. If you're going to be towing a trailer with your Echo you also need the recommended ball mount, part # C45521, with either a 2 inch hitch ball, part # A-82, or a 1-7/8 inch ball, part # A-80. Then use # F-4 for a pin and clip. To...

  • How to Better Support 2 Inch Bike Rack in 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch on a 2004 Toyota Celica
    You are within the reduced capacity of the hitch so that is good. Curt does require the use of a stabilization strap, # 18050, when using hitch # C11289 for anything other than a trailer. The strap will help reduce the stress on the hitch. I have linked a video showing how it works.

  • Trailer Hitch, Ball Mount, Ball, and Trailer Wiring Recommendations for a 2001 Toyota Celica
    It sounds like you plan to use the 2001 Toyota Celica to tow a trailer which would mean you need a trailer hitch. If you were towing the Celica with another vehicle, it would need base plates and a tow bar. We currently have one available trailer hitch for a 2001 Toyota Celica. Take a look at the Curt # C11289. I have included a link to the installation details below. The instructions are based on a stock vehicle and do not take into account your TRD body kit. More then likely, some modification...

  • Will Trailer Hitch from 2000 Toyota Echo Fit 2007 Subaru Impreza
    Trailer hitch fits are vehicle/year/version-specific. The hitches that fit your friend's 2000 Toyota Echo, including the Curt # C11289, do not fit your 2007 Subaru Impreza. I did check each of the hitches offered for both vehicles and unfortunately none are common. At right you will find two links, one to the trailer hitch page for each of the two vehicles. The only thing in common among them is that they are all light-duty Class I hitches. I cannot recommend trying to install a hitch...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2004 Toyota Celica GTS with Alternate Stock Spoiler
    In order to transport bikes with your 2004 Toyota Celica GTS, I recommend installing the Curt Trailer Hitch, # C11289, and use a hitch mounted bike rack like the Let's Go Aero BikeWing-2 Bike Rack, # LGA54FR. Since we have not tested any of our trunk mounted bike racks on a Celica with an alternate spoiler like yours, I can not guarantee that this style of rack would work for you. I feel that a trunk mounted rack like the Hollywood Racks Expedition 3 Bike Rack, # HRF6-3, has a very good...

  • 2005 Toyota Echo Hatch Bike Rack Options
    I have a solution that will allow you to carry multiple bikes on your 2005 Toyota Echo. The rear spoiler on your vehicle will limit your options to install a trunk mount bike rack including the Yakima HalfBack 2 Bike Rack part # Y02636 however, there are several other viable options to choose from. The most effective choice would involve a trailer hitch mounted bike rack. Our best option to haul multiple bikes on your vehicle requires the installation of a trailer hitch. The Curt Class...

  • Trunk-Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for 2002 Toyota Celica with Large Spoiler
    The Hollywood Racks Trunk Bike Rack # HRF6-3 that you referenced is a specialized carrier intended for vehicles with roof-line or typical trunk-level spoilers. However, the very large and tall trunk-mount spoiler on your 2002 Celica does pose an unusual challenge to the fit of a trunk-mount bike rack, even the HRF6-3. You have two clearance concerns with your vehicle: one is clearance around the spoiler to install a rack; the other is the resulting space available for your bikes, particularly...
