Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2013 Toyota Sienna - Curt

Today on our 2013 Toyota Sienna, well be installing the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number C13105. Now here is what our hitch looks like installed on our vehicle. Now well go ahead and give you a couple of measurements in helping you choose some accessories for your hitch, such as a bicycle rack or a cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer most edge of the bumper is approximately 6 inches. From the top of the opening in the receiver to the ground is approximately 11 inches. Now lets go ahead and install our hitch.

Now before we begin, were going to need to remove this lower appearance panel that covers the rear of the vehicle. Now in order to remove the lower appearance panel, theres multiple fasteners that will need to be removed. Now well go ahead and set our appearance panel aside for reinstallation later. Now lets go ahead and point out our mounting locations. Well begin over here on the driver side. Well be using the existing weld nut underneath this cover.

This one and this one. Just simply use our razor knife to trim out the cover. Now that we have our attachment points uncovered over here on the driver side, to be exactly the same over on the passenger side. Now were going to go ahead and take our appearance panel and were going to do some trimming on it first in order for it to fit around our hitch. Well have mark out some areas. Then well be removing this section right in here.

In order to remove our section, were just going to use our razor knife, cut along the plastic. After we cut our openings for the hitch arms, well lay the panel on top of the hitch. Now the hardware that well be using for all six mounting locations is the same. Its the 12mm hex bolt and a inch conical tooth washer. We want to make sure that when installed, the teeth on the washer are facing towards the hitch.

Now its a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you raise the hitch up into position. Well go ahead and install one bolt on each side loosely. Then well reinstall the fasteners for the panel. Then when all the fasteners are reinstalled, well loosely install the rest of our hitch hardware. Well make sure the hitch is centered on the vehicle and then well tighten it down. Then well torque down all of our bolts to the manufacturer specification. Now that our hardware has been torqued down, that will complete our installation of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number C13105, on our 2013 Toyota Sienna. .

Hitch Installation 2006 Toyota Sienna How I Did It: I had no plastic bottom splash cover on this van to work around. The van was not jacked up.. I simply hooked the passenger side of the hitch over the exhaust pipe (to support the hitch). Using a block of wood on a jack I raised the (center receiver) of the hitch to draw the driver side up into the mounting position. A 8-in heavy shank Phillips screwdriver and a tapered piece of wood helped to 'align' the (3) holes, and loosely set the driver side (bolts with washers), into place. Moving to the passenger side.. I used a 2nd jack (with a piece of 2x4x6 (on the jack) placed between the body and exhaust to rise the hitch up and away form the tail pipe, and into mounting position. Alternating between center jack supporting the "receiver", and passenger side jack (raising the right Hitch side), I kept the hitch level as the hitch was snugged into mounting position. Again, using the tapered wood and screwdriver as an alinement set, I screwed in 2 of the 3 right side bolts. The third bolt, refused to 'catch' and failed to screw into place even though alinement appeared good, and the bold had been tested as screwing into the hole cleanly, prior to raising the hitch.... My solution to this was to use a 'bolt & nut of the proper size that I had on hand', identical to the supplied bolts but mine happened to be shorter, but with good threads. I placed a nut on this bolt. I ground a leading cone shape taper (grinding about 4-threads away to make the taper), on the end of this new "alignment bolt". I oiled the treads, and then removed the nut to 'self-clean' the threads out to it's new end taper. I did not cut a thread-cutting chip-relief 'notch' in this bolt end, as I knew the van threads were good as pretested. Using this modified bolt I was able to now 'catch' the van hole's lead-thread, and cinch-up this modified aligning bold tightly. Or,... if you don't have an extra nut and bolt laying around, you can use one of the supplied hitch bolts, a grinder and a small file to touch-up the lead thread. There is plenty of length on a new Hitch bolt to work with. (Be sure you have cleaned & pretested all 6 of the Van's bolt-hole threads with the supplied bolts prior to your install efforts!) I also found it handy to have another small block of 2x4 to pry the exhaust pipe out of the way of your hand/tools, when using the socket set on the right side bolt holes. With my modified bolt tight and in place, I then tightened the 2 installed right-side bolts.. remove the 'modifier aligning bold' and installed the 3-rd and final hitch bolt with it's washer. Time To Tighten All the Bolts Down: A point about torque on this Hitch/bolt install. Though the instructions say to use a torque wrench, it seemed rare for anyone in comments/Product Review, to actually mention "using" a torque wrench with their installs. Since the bolts are to be tightened to almost 80ft/lb this is ALLOT of force.. and even with the torque wrench it seems you will break the bolts, until you hear the wrench's refreshing STOP 'click'. For those just 'guessing' as they use a beaker bar, or just grunting the bolts into place, I imagine allot of trailers are being pulled at 60mph+, with essentially loose bolts, or at the least, under-tightened/under torqued hitch bolts. Hmm, overloaded trailer, over speed pulling, and under tightened bolts.... Sounds like fun! Seriously, try very hard to get your hands on a proper torque wrench and be surprised at the amount of oomph it takes to properly tighten these bolts. Anyway, the Hitch? Great bumper-cover hugging design. Good paint-job and pretty "gold colored" bolt and washer set. The instructions are clear. Plastic Problems: Some who have it installed, have goofed and cut the wrong side for the rear plastic underside splash panel. Just mark BOTH sides of the same lift side, so you don't get confused, or cut it, installed, and in place, as some have done with a utility-knife or tin snips. (Consider also a soldering-iron tip and steady hand). Matching It All Together: I also found that the CURT ball (one with a 2-in body rise) brought my ball-mount (it's a 1-in rise) and ball combo up to an acceptable (3-in rise), and level, to within 1/2~3/4-in connected to the trailer. Final Thought: I'm all for advertizing but not all over the van, so I pulled the stick-on labels off the hitch. It looks cleaner for me. Sorry eTrailer! If someone asks, I'll tell e'm I got it from you. :-) The takeaway? This is a good company to buy from... Thanks! 132062

Very happy with the hitch and the ease of installation onto my 2013 sienna. I don't have a lift, but our driveway has a small dropoff at the end, so backing it within a few feet of the end gave me a couple more feet of clearance to work with. Even then, it was pretty cramped and maneuvering the 40lb hitch into place did require some patience. Overall it probably took me closer to 2 hours total, but everything basically went exactly as the instructions and the video showed. I used tin snips instead of a rotary tool to cut the plastic undercoating, and that produced just as nice of an edge. I also needed to get a 10" extension for my socket wrench (which I think the instructions do say you need) to get at some of the nuts. I didn't have a torque wrench, so "get a torque wrench and properly retighten all the nuts" is on my "someday" list of things to do. The mounted hitch doesn't interfere with anything during normal city driving (my wife hasn't complained about it on her daily commute getting the kids to and from school) Mounted a "Thule Apex Swing 4 Bike Hitch Rack" onto it, drove some bikes up to camp and back, everything held up just fine. Even with the rack loaded and swung out to the side, which should put quite a bit of torque on the hitch joint, the hitch never seemed to be under strain. I have to say that the etrailer videos showing how to mount it basically sold me. Very smart on their part! 82623

Hello Nathan,Your paragraph on the install was just great. What are you towing with your Sienna?I have just started to investigate what I could buy for a trailer to sleep in. All of the in-formation I am starting with is somewhat confusing.My van is an 11 four cylinder Sienna and the tong weight is not up to high for what I want to buy. So interested if you camp. My first wife died and now I started up again at 70 with a new wife who is much younger and we like to travel. Every thing is so expensive that if we bought a trailer, it would be great with two older dogs to 10-8 on the road.Fritz F.

We have sent an email to Nathan about your question. Remember to make sure whatever you pull falls within the capacities of the hitch and vehicle. With the 4 cylinder in particular, you will probably need to look for very light weight setups like a tear drop or pop-up.

Hi Fritz - it sounds like you have quite an adventure ahead of you! Unfortunately, I dont have much advice to offer. We just used the hitch to carry a bike rack - we never used it to tow anything. I did see some folks with minivans towing pop-ups and they seemed to be doing ok, although our New England roads tend to be pretty flat so I dont know how their engines would do on more mountainous terrain. Just do whatever Patrick says, and good luck!

2012 Sienna LE FWD. Watch the 2011 installation video before you start. This 13105 hitch tucks in even prettier than I expected, and now my brother is jealous. Note I made the cutout in the underbody panel narrower, starting 1.75 inches from the hole (see photo), for a closer fit, and there is still room for torque wrench. I also cut a slit out to the front edge, so I could slip it on with the hitch in place, and for better access to my air hoses inside the left fender. I decided to add Airlift after reading reviews, since on trips I carry a maximum load. Installed single-handed, raised on jack stands. 29277

Comments

Hi Mike,I was ready to purchase a 2014 Sienna until I found out Toyota would not put a hitch on this vehicle because of low ground clearance. I will be carrying heavy loads and have heard you bottom out on the hitch when going into parking lots etc. At times when the van is fully loaded I will also have a travel trailer attached which adds 400 lbs. to the tongue weight. Even with this hitch it may not be the right van for my needs. Do you have experience that can help me?Can you tell me what type of Airlift assist you put on and if you ever have trouble bottoming out on your hitch.How does the Airlift affect the ride both when heavily loaded and empty?Thank you for your time and have a great Labor Day weekend.

-The Curt C13105 hitch arrived quickly and fit well. The 2015 Sienna LE AWD has a long DROPPED RIDGE in the plastic underbody guard. The dropped ridge runs parallel to the (round) hitch crossbar nearly it's entire length. -The measurements given to trim the driver's side for the hitch plate were perfect. There was mention of "some models need additional trimming" (and a photo that I did not find useful) - the 2015 Sienna tray needed additional trimming. -So, I mounted the hitch and let it "pivot" from the front-most bolt on each side (leaving the rear 2 out). A floor jack is handy, as recommended when doing this solo. I used the jack to lift the rack up against the underbody guard and trace where to trim. It was easy to trim just around the receiver tube and gusset plate. The cross-bar traps and "sandwiches" underbody guard nicely if you do not cut out the whole dropped ridge. I chose to do this, and it's snug and secure with only slight distortion of the guard, and I believe trimming out the whole ridge would leave floppy, unsupported edges. It is important to secure the guard with it's fasteners first before using the floor jack to "squeeze" the rack up into it's final location and assembling the final rear bolts. Oh, and the CURT box makes a great, clean, slightly cushioned surface for laying on if you're doing this at home in the garage. Much better than a mechanic's creeper for a task like this. Also, I took a few minutes to chase the Sienna weld-nuts with a M12x1.25 tap. The bolts were then easy to start by hand. 234718

After I ordered it, I was somewhat worried about the possibility I may have ordered the wrong year. This was because the web based ordering process was slightly cumbersome and did not make it clear in the cart that the product I placed there was definitely for a 2004 Toyota Sienna. However, it arrived the day after I ordered it! Prior reviews are correct that the packing was lacking as the hitch is simply in a cardboard box (with the accessory items taped to the bar). So the paint was scrapped off in a couple small places where the box had been slightly torn. In one spot, there was already rust appearing where the paint had been scraped. But overall, the hitch looked great. Instructions in the box were somewhat lacking, but the etrailer installation videos were spot on and made the process very simple. I had some trouble cleaning the nut holes under the van and wish I had been given one extra bolt. I had to cut a groove in one of the bolts to create a self-tapping bolt because the threads in the nut became fouled. (I did not have a tapping tool to fit the thread--if you do, then I strongly recommend you clean out the nuts with your tapping tool after you clean it with WD-40 and a wire brush.) My trouble would probably only happen 1 in 10,000 times. Hitch fit perfectly on my Sienna. The harness installation was as quick and easy as the video demonstrated. Thank you etrailer for your excellent video installation demos! They made all the difference and made the process mostly enjoyable. The final product looks fantastic on the van. I particulalry like the curve of the bar fitting underneath the bumper--perfect. Well worth the price. I bought it from etrailer and installed it myself at half the price the Toyota dealer wanted for just the part! I never found out how much they wanted for installation. Thank you etrailer. 51732

I took my 2011 Sienna to Toyota dealership and they wanted $725.00 which I thought was unreasonable.

Shipped extremely fast after ordering. Delivered quickly by UPS. The box was very well stapled together. The box looked like UPS gave it the bottom of the truck treatment but the hitch was perfect condition and all parts included. I installed it myself on a 2014 Toyota Sienna minivan using the included instructions and watching the videos on the site. The installations was identical to the video on the site. I highly recommend using two people to hold the hitch or a jack stand and a floor jack. I did not have those and used a stack of 2x4's to get the hitch balanced in place. I used the torque wrench to get the bolts tightened to instructions. The video install of the identical vehicle is why I purchased from etrailer. There is a little over 9 inches of clearance from the bottom of the hitch opening. I will be using a 5 bike rack (Draft Master) this summer on vacation with this hitch. Another tip is to wash the under body before working on it as to lessen the dirt around the working area. 212066

The hitch works great for my bicycle rack ATOC DraftMaster on the 2014 Toyota Sienna. Your install video was great. I recommended your site to my sister for their van hitch.

This is the second hitch and wiring harness Ive bought from etrailer and I will likely be buying from them again. I had a local hitch company install the last hitch and harness but this time I did it myself. The Curt C13105 class III hitch I bought this time was pretty easy to install on my new Toyota Sienna even if it was much heavier and I didnt have any help. The included written instructions for both the hitch and the Curt C56106 vehicle specific harness seemed to be meant for a pro but installation videos on the etrailer and Curt websites filled in the gaps. When installing on a Sienna, be sure to install the wiring harness before you reattach the trim panel under the rear of vehicle and fully tighten the hitch bolts. It is not necessary to cut a slot in the underbody trim panel nearly as large as the one shown in the instructions. I recommend cutting out only the rib section shown in the instructions - perhaps only 1/2 inch wide and 11 inches long and easily cut and enlarged if necessary with a standard utility knife. The trim panel is easily pushed aside when attaching and torqueing the bolts though the slot you cut. This was a very satisfying project as I know I did a much better job than a professional would have taken the time to do. I spent much longer on the installation than the instructions said it should take but I was especially careful and meticulous. I was able to route the wiring harness from the rear of the Sienna to the battery in the engine compartment by raising only the back of the Sienna on jack stands - be sure to use chocks on the front and back of both front wheels for safety. 130317

Etrailer was excellent in answering my presales questions. The video was great in overviewing the install process. I ordered 2:30pm CDT on a Monday and received the product on Tue afternoon - now that is fast delivery - granted we lived closer to the distribution center within 250 miles. The installation was like painting. Takes 80% to do the prep work of cleaning the holes and spraying it down with lubricant (like WD40 or rust penetrating oil). The actual install of the hitch was only 20 minutes while it took nearly 45 minutes to clean the holes out. I recommend anti-seize lubricant on the bolts as well. This will also aide in lubricating the bolt for easier tightening. Curt makes the highest ground clearance hitches. I'm very pleased with the overall quality and install process. It looks great on my Sienna! One tow with renting a Uhaul trailer vs driving their gas-guzzling truck will have paid for this hitch, wiring harness, and ball hitch. Please remember to do your research on the Sienna for proper towing capacity. Toyota appears to have made 2008+ model optional in towing prep package. Without towing prep, your tow may be only limited to 1200 lbs. Lucky with for me, the Sienna had towing prep that provides up to 3500 lbs. I will look to add an automatic transmission cooler still in the future. 3500 lbs will cover many of my usage scenarios. Good luck! 101253

Well built hitch receiver. Brackets matched frame contour and bolt holes perfectly. Included hardware was exactly what was required, however, I really would have appreciated a thread chaser, even a cheap one to go with the bolts. I would definitely recommend some type of anti-seize on the bolt during install. Installation would have only taken minutes, but dealing with rust/debris in holes complicated things. 80449

Comments

Still very happy with the product. I have found that even when driving through deep dips in the road like from parking lots to the highway hitch does not scrape. Ive used the hitch to pull light and heavy load and Ive noticed the same thing with both: the square bore receptacle is slightly too large for the square tube hitch that fits in it. While I dont see this as being a safety issue, it does result in a loud clonk every time you change direction. However, unit MUST be durable as I was towing a loaded trailer and was forced to slam on brakes. If it was ever going to fail, it would have done it then, and it didnt. Again, well built product. Would be perfect with some tweaks.

Thanks for the reply after using this hitch for over a year. To help reduce noise while towing a trailer you can use an anti-rattle device like the Blue Ox # BX88224
Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II - 2" Hitches
$53.95
. This will stabilize the ballmount in the hitch receiver while towing, and reduce the loud clonking noises you are hearing.

Just like the wiring kit I purchased from ETrailer.com, the video instructions were great and the part fit perfectly to my van. I was able to haul alot of stuff from MD to NC and back with no problems. Be prepared to do some prep work if you've never had a hitch attached to your van. I have a 2005 Sienna XLE which already has the threaded holes in the frame for the hitch to attach to. I spent more time (several hours) cleaning out the 8 years of dirt, grime, and rust from the threads in the frame than actually installing the hitch. I recommend making sure the bolts run all the way up through the holes before trying to install the hitch. Also, although the hitch is attached as close as possible to the van, you must be careful going over steep driveway entrances or taller speedbumps as I have bottomed out a couple of times since installing the hitch, even without the trailer attached. 108253

We have sent an email to William letting him know about your question. In the meantime, I have added a link to the wiring harness he installed. On that page are links to several videos of this harness being installed on different model year Siennas that you may find helpful.

There were no issues hooking up the wiring. Just some partial disassembly of interior panels to hide the wiring behind and removal and replacement of exterior taillight covers. I took out the rear interior panel but only loosened the side interior panels and worked the wires in behind everything. Basically only needed a screwdriver do do those parts and then found space in the jack compartment to store it all. The wiring kit I bought from etrailer just plugged right into the existing taillight system in the van. See their instructions and video for installation of the wiring harness.

This is the second time I have ordered from etrailer.com. I ordered two hitches from them in the spring of 2008. Those worked perfectly. I returned to etrailer because of my favorable experience 5 years ago. etrailer’s service remains first-rate. Within moments of ordering, I received email confirmation. I received a second email approximately 24 hours later, stating that my order had shipped and identifying tracking information. Three days after that when I could not track my order online, etrailer promptly replied to my email with delivery information. The order I placed just before midnight on a Tuesday was delivered to my driveway the following Monday morning. Packaging was bulletproof. All components (two hitches and two wiring harnesses) were well restrained, padded, and delivered unharmed. A final email was sent the day after to indicate that the shipment should have arrived and asking for me to rate my experience. Printed installation instructions for the Curt hitch are pretty simple and straightforward. I viewed the installation video at etrailer in advance and consulted it once when installing to make sure I had the measurements correct for cutting the plastic panel once I had removed it from under the car. I own all the correct tools needed to install the hitch. I backed the van up onto my car ramps and then used my jackstands to hold the hitch in place while threading the bolts into place. Did the job alone, took my time, and had it installed right in about an hour and a half. Looks good. 78241

Perfect fit for my Sienna. Went on in under 30 minutes with no problems. Did NOT have to disconnect the exhaust hanger. Just slid the hitch up and over and into place. That did make the job of getting bolts in place a little tougher, but I had no way to unhook the tailpipe. Just had to have a flexible socket head. Went in easy, same as the other 2 hitches I have bought in the past. Came in right at 9 inches level off the ground, so I had to buy a 6 inch up post to get it level at 15 inches (cargo trailer, 15 in hitch height) Awesome product as always, and probably $100's less than the Toyota product. 233388

Working great. Towed my cargo trailer full of furniture back across the country with no problems. Later this summer, I towed my popup trailer back across the country, and back to the NW on vacation. Used it off an on throughout the year as well.3K miles with cargo trailer, and nearly 9K with the popup trailer. Everything works fantastic.

Ordered on a Wednesday, shipped Sunday, arrived Wednesday, so a week to deliver. Not too bad for free shipping of something this large. Appeared to be well packaged, and no damage upon arrival other than a tiny chip in the powder coat on the edge of one of the mounting ears. I was immediately impressed with the quality and heavy duty nature of the hitch- should certainly withstand anything I'll tow with my 2013 Sienna. Install went well, though I took a bit of extra time to measure for the cutout. Being in snow country (MN), I was worried about how much snow/salt may get in there as it's directly behind the rear left tire, so wanted to minimize the opening. I cut right along the rib which the directions show you to cut out, and ended up with an opening about 1.75"x11"- probably could have gone shorter, but it fit fine and installation was a non-event. Make sure to have a large enough torque wrench to do 80 ft-lbf on the fasteners, and I added anti-sieze as well. Being that the van is only 3 years old, I didn't even have to clean out the mounting holes. Still have to hook up wiring, but am leaving that for another day. Overall I'm very satisfied with the purchase. 270429

The finish on the hitch was very good. Only some of the very edges of the plate material used on either side of the hitch showed some steel. As a precautionary measure, I spray painted an additional coat of Rustolium paint. This final coat went on very well over the existing finish. The hitch fit well. Pay close attention to the video when they take the plastic undercover off. For the Toyota Sienna, there are three distinct types of fasteners. The bolt types are obvious to take off, but the other two are not. One unscrews and the other has a white center part that pops out allowing the remainder of the plastic rivet to come out. Also, the placement of the cut-out slot in the plastic under-panel shown on the video and in the instructions is slightly off for the 2013 Sienna. I think that it should be moved about 1/2 inch toward the driver side of the van to be more in line with the hitch support arm. One last note, which may be obvious to some, is to realize that once you tighten the hitch in place, there is no room above the hitch to allow you to move the plastic under-panel around for alignment. Therefore, as recommended, leave as much slack in the mounting bolts as possible to give yourself the most room between the hitch and the van to maneuver the plastic cover in place for fastening. 83821

Excellent product, install was easy, took me less then 1 hour. Hitch was packed very well, only 1 small 1 inch scrach was all. As a matter of fact the only reason I didn't mark the highest raiding was cause it took three days to ship, not arrive, rather leave the warehouse, they also didn't give me a tracking number until I emailed them requesting one. Good communication but I started each, not them. In the end I'm happy and would purchase from them again. Again, hitch itself was excellent. 221489

This has been an excellent hitch, no problems at all. Im towing an 8x10 utility traler every other week about 35 miles each way. Very happy with this product but the amazing part was the ease of installation, step by step instruction, a video link, glad I found this hitch. Thanks

I purchased this for my 2012 Toyota Sienna. Instructions from etrailer.com were very good and the product arrived in a couple of days. I did not loosen the exhaust system and just worked around it (make sure the tailpipe is cool). Also, I would recommend chocking the wheels for safety. The clearance was definitely low at the back and sometimes challenging, especially when trying to read the torque wrench. I used wood blocks to support one side of the hitch while I bolted the other in place. I finished in about 2 hours and the hitch looks great and is solidly in place. I tested it with a bike rack and drove it for about 60 miles with no rattling or loosening of the rack. 126891

Etrailer did a wonderful job with their website i.e. viewing products to delivery i.e. status of delivery with mapping. I got the trailer hitch from a UPS delivery truck, wish they're more gentle with stuff people buy, but it came in an easy to carry box. Instructions and tools are package together inside the opening of the hitch receiver. Installation instructions are easy to follow and tells you exactly what you need. It helps to have a ramp to raise the back of your vehicle higher than the edge of garage. It's much easier to cut the lopsided of the plastic side for fitting and also to secure the bolts. Do not forget a torque ranch and an extension 9" or more for the 19mm socket because it will make your life much more easier. I install it all by myself with the help of a floor jacket. As long as you maneuver the jack in the middle, the hitch fits like a glove underneath vehicle right up to the 3 bolt screw holes on either side. Grant my hitch was just a tad tight but a tap with a plastic hammer did the trick. I also find it's not really necessary to remove the muffler (given you let your vehicle cool off so muffler don't burn you). I'm very please with the product, delivery, and with Etrailer. 277832

The hitch fit like a glove. I only wish Toyota had left some plugs in the six mounting holes. 8 years of road spray took their toll on the threads. I searched high and low for a tap or a wire brush to clean up the threads and came up empty at Home Depot, Lowes, and three different auto parts stores. Fortunately some anti-rust spray and working one of the bolts in and out of the threads a few times was enough to get all six bolts driven in. 123923

Comments

Still good after a year. At some point I noticed that etrailer sells a thread cleaner that I should have added to my cart when I bought the hitch. If your vehicle is more than a few years old, buy the thread brush. That will make bolting the hitch on that much easier.

I have to say I am still amazed at how well this hitch just snugged right up under my Sienna. Honestly, it looks custom made, and in a way it was. I was able to do the vast majority of the install on my own, at the very end I asked my wife to hold back the tailpipe so I could do the final snug down of the bolts on that side. I work slow and I was still done in well under an hour. The hitch itself is very well made and finished. I would recommend this to anyone in the same circumstances without reservation. 137721

Everything was excellent - right down to my call to the customer service agent who explained the differences in the trailer hitches for my Sienna Van. I watched the installation video a few times and then a friend helped me install the hitch with no issues. The only thing I didn't have was an extension bar for my ratchet set. I had a 3 inch extension, but in order to clear the exhaust pipe on the right side of the van you'll need a about an 8-10 inch extension bar. The video even shows the mechanic using a longer extension bar so no fault of e-trailer. Total install time was about an hour...great product and no issues. 216128

True bolt on for a 2010 Toyota Sienna. The only issue I encountered was that the driver side threading was really dirty and needed to be blasted with some PB blaster and wire brush cleaned. But that doesn't really have to do with the hitch itself. The passenger side must have been cleaner because the exhaust covered up that side a little bit. Once everything was cleaned, the bolts were torqued to 79 lb/ft and I was good to go. Thanks! 90793

The installation was straight forward. The hitch fit perfectly. I used a M12 x 1.25 tap to clean out the welded-nut threads, which made treading the bolts very easy. If I don't include cleaning the welded-nut threads, the job took about 1/2 hour. It took me an additional 20 minutes to prep the welded-nuts (time well spent). I only needed to remove one of the exhaust hangers (the one closest to the rear of the van). That gave me plenty of room to install the hitch. When I received the hitch, it did have some minor paint damage where the bolts are inserted. The hitch looked like it might have been previously installed. However, the receiver had no evidence that it had ever been used. It's not a big deal, but when I purchase something as "new" it should be perfect. The damage was simply cosmetic. I didn't have the tap needed to clean out the welded-nuts. I had to order that on-line through another vendor. It would have been nice to have that available through etrailer.com as an "install kit". Overall I was very happy with the results. The cosmetic damage was the only thing that kept my rating from being an excellent. 241884

This installation of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver C13105 was on a 2006 Toyota Sienna. The fit was perfect. It was not necessary to remove the exhaust hangar to access the passenger-side bolts - I was able to hold the exhaust pipe aside with a block of wood, and use normal socket wrenches w/ extenders. I used a small scissor jack under the receiver to raise it into position, with blocks under both ends to stabilize it. Had this been a new vehicle, the job would have taken about 20 minutes, working alone, no jacks or lift. Since this was a 6-year old vehicle in NJ with salted roads, it took another hour and a half to clean the rusted threads in the weld nuts. A well-worn plumber's wire brush intended to clean copper fittings before soldering started the job, followed by a lot of WD-40 and back-and-forth with a socket wrench on a 12-1.25 bolt. The unit just clears the bottom of the bumper trim, so it preserves as much ground clearance as possible, given the design of the Sienna. About delivery - ordered after 9pm on Monday, delivered before noon on Friday. The order was complete (wiring harness, etc.) and in perfect shape. 31597

Just installed the hitch over the weekend on a 2014 Sienna. It was a very straightforward installation, with just one problem- it appears as though one of the weld nuts in the body of the van either had a thread that was cast incorrectly or something, because it took some serious work to get it in. All the other bolts went in with no issues. The instructions for cutting the underbody trim to access the weld nuts was spot on, and removing the exhaust from the hanger wasn't too bad. I have not used the hitch yet, but it fits good and looks to be solidly constructed. 194255

It was the first time that we had attempted to install a hitch. We reviewed the installation video several times, got an understanding of what needed to happen, and had at it! Jacking the vehicle up high enough to work under and then stabilizing it so we could work comfortably was important....After that the project unfolded pretty much as the video demonstrated. We did not remove the plastic cover plate, so locating the correct place to cut was a bit of a challenge. But after some discussion of location, we made the incision with a shop knife, and were spot-on. Cleaned and lubed the holes, installed the bolts , tightened the bolts with a torque wrench and great effort. The hitch was on! We reinstalled the muffler...(unlike the video we only took the system off one hanger and had ample room to work), and then had to quit because breakfast was ready. The project went as shown and easy enough for a fifth grade teacher, an concrete installer, and an old retired guy to handle, with tools from my shop. No four letter words were uttered during the entire project.... Good job etrailer.com and Curt Trailer Hitch! 252434

I was very pleased with the Curt Hitch. I did not remove the panel under the car. I cut the opening with a good sharp uitility knife with the panel in place. It was easy to measure. I backed up on two car lifts for extra space. The hitch fit the holes perfectly. I placed the hitch on a 4 wheel dolly, shimmed each side until the hitch was lined up and put the bolts in with a long extension. I did this alone. I used the Curt wiring harness. I discovered it is just the opposite from the Toyota harness in that the extra wiring goes to the left side rather than the right side as the video suggests. I am using the hitch to carry a Rally cargo carrier with a ramp to carry my electric scooter. I had to add an extension to my hitch so the assembly that holds up the ramp would not hit the tail light on the passenger side when the cargo carrier is in the upright position. I added a second platform to the cargo carrier and short ramp and the a board to the bumper of the Sienna 2011. I can go up the ramp and into the back of the Sienna so that the scooter can be transported completely inside the car if I choose. 53897

The product arrived after a couple of days and was in great condition. no nicks or scratches. The personal follow up by E-trailer staff was impressive and felt more like attention level you usually get from a store purchase. The videos are priceless... SO MUCH EASIER THAN PAPER INSTRUCTIONS.... I did the work with my ipad running video next to me. the cuts took 10 minutes with a saws-all. the installation was about as easy as something like this could be. Two pairs of hands are recommended, but I did it on my own with a bit more effort in about an hour. the product lined up perfectly and was easy to install. NOTE have a wrench with an extension to get around the tail pipe. I think the hitch looks as intergrated as any after market hitch can. The round tube (my preference - hence choosing the Curt) seems to contour the rear fender well. I would highly recommend this product to others 73054

The hardest part of the job was the small amount of ground clearance the Sienna has without jacking it up. If you have drive up ramps to give yourself more room, they are very helpful. Completely removing the underbody panel is not required and it is easier to install the hitch if you only remove enough fasteners to allow the half of the panel on the driver's side to hang free. This allows extra space between the fuel tank and the hole you need to cut through the cover (so you don't puncture the fuel tank with a rotary bit). It provides room to easily thread in the bolts. It also means you don't have to mess with both the panel and the hitch flopping around when lifting the hitch into place. Cutting the hole in the plastic is super easy. Here's how I did it. I cut a cardboard template (2.75" x 12.5") out of the shipping box and held it up to the underbody panel where the diagram showed. I marked the outline with a permanent marker and then used a utility knife to cut the hole. After that, it was simply a matter of getting the hitch in place and bolting it down. 112000

Fit perfectly and did it by myself in about 40 minutes time and I'm not terribly handy, so anyone can do this. I will say that I'm pretty sore simply from the intricate turning to get the right angles and twisting to get the bolts in place. Not used to using my hand muscles to that kind of level apparently. I'd recommend propping the trailer up on something and then once I got the first bolt in place I used my car jack to keep it snug while I worked the other bolts into place. Only hard part was twisting the bolts in a very small amount of space, but that's just the nature of the project. The side with the exhaust pipe was the toughest due to limited space. I tested out my Thule hitch with 4 bikes and drove around the neighborhood and everything worked perfectly. Great product and it shipped within a day and was at my house a few days later with easy to follow instructions. Great company and I'd definitely recommend doing it yourself, but do expect to get dirty and you'll probably be a tad bit sore if you don't do these kinds of projects for a living. 233172

If you need a hitch, you NEED etrailer ! I ordered my second hitch from them for my 2014 Toyota Sienna and just as promised the price was a great deal, all parts were right, and the instructions were very well written ! I also installed the "Tee" wiring that fit like a glove! I use my hitch to tow a small utility trailer, a 2 place jet ski trailer, and a small camper so we will use it a lot! I would suggest having 2 people or a floor jack covered with a towel (so as to not scratch the hitch) to hold the hitch up when starting the mounting bolts! I have not taken any pictures yet but plan to when I can and will send them in. Thanks etrailer.com for awesome customer support both by email and over the phone!!! 121699

The hitch was delivered in two days, (earlier than I expected). The only thing that I might suggest is a double wall box for shipping. the box as pretty rough when it arrived. The hitch itself was in good condition and the instillation was 40 minutes( by my self) just like the video said it would be. The holes all lined up the way they were supposed to and the install went flawlessly. Certainly I would not hesitate to buy another one if I needed one. I wish everything was this simple. 131052

Took me and my 15 year old son about 30 minutes to attach the 2" Curt hitch. I did not reattach and cut the bottom plastic cover on our 2015 Sienna XLE. I left it off during our trip and when we returned I removed the hitch all together and put the cover back on. I will reinstall the hitch for our next trip. My driveway is steep and bottomed out every time pulling in and out. The bottom of the hitch was 7" off the ground as you will see in the attached photo. I did have to spread open the hitch about 3/4" to install. I used a floor jack and a 2x4 which made this a quick and painless. I did not take a picture of this part. Just stand the hitch on end and put the floor jack inside with the 2x4 on top standing up. a few pumps of the handle did the trick for me. I'm sure any jack will work. 284415

Installed with myself and 4 jack stands -- 2 to hold the rear end up, 2 to hold the hitch up -- in about an hour and a half (I had to find the lifting point on my Sienna first). There was some grunting to get the hitch in place. If you have a friend and know where the lifting point is you could probably get it done in 45 minutes or less. If you have a car lift and a friend it would take maybe 15 or 20 minutes. The hitch looks as expected from the photos, and the video was a great help. I was worried about bottoming out, but haven't yet (I live near Chicago, so there aren't a lot of uneven surfaces around). My uncle who lives in Denver, CO has a 2006 sienna and bottomed out all the time before he had airbags installed. This may not be as big of an issue on the newer generation. Overall good hitch. I was considering the one by torklift central for aesthetics and possibly more clearance, but went with this one because it was so much cheaper. So far I haven't regretted it. 187090

Searched internet for hitch for a bike rack for 2014 Toyota Sienna Van. Found etrailer and Item C13105. I viewed the video for installation and placed my order. It arrived in 3-days. For installation it recommends removing the tailpipe holder on the pass. side, I'm a 70 year old man and did not have to remove the hanger. I backed my van onto 2 pcs of 2x6's (each rear tire) placed a cardboard box about the height of a (sorry beer case) in the center of width, placed the hitch bar on the box and after cutting out the right side to allow access to the bolt holes, was able to catch a bolt on each side. Then continued to secure the other bolts as req. I had discussed w/my garage to do the installation, but it took less than an hour as described above. The rubber hanger is spongy enough to push it out of way and secure the bolts. I am totally satisfied with my purchase of the Curt trailer hitch and the quick and simple ordering and delivery by etrailer. 395303

I recently installed the CURT C13105 hitch on my 2015 Sienna. I wanted to save money by doing it myself and the directions and other reviews made it sound easy. It was actually easier than I thought it would be. The hardest part was getting the van up in the air. I had trouble getting the van up on ramps because they kept sliding on the garage floor so I had to use a friend lift in his garage. We had the hitch totally installed in under 1 hour. I'll admit that I did screw up and trimmed the wrong side of that panel that you need to remove and trim. I had it upside down from the instructions because it was tough to tell from the picture. Still no big deal. When I got a hitch put on my 2011 Sienna, the shop that did it just removed the panel and through it in the back of the van, and they charged me a fortune for the hitch and wiring. So to wrap it up, great product at a great price, and I would definitely by from etrailer again. 261727

No issue encountered with this install. I just followed directions, cut the protective panel as indicated (and yes, it is larger than needed) and placed the hitch. I used my floor jack to install the hitch by counter weighting through the receiver and my daughter raised it while I lined the bolts. Could be done by one person, but quicker and more fun with 2. 203761

I am very pleased with Etrailer.com service, shipping, and especially their helpful videos. I had one bolt that I had trouble with due to some minor thread damage, but one call to Customer Service, and a replacement was on the way. The Kurt hitch fits nicely up under the rear bumper and I especially like that I could reinstall the the plastic appearance panel on my 2012 Sienna. As mentioned in the videos, check to make sure each bolt will easily screw all the way into the weld nuts before you start to install the hitch. I had a couple on weld nuts that needed work to clean out, even on a new van. Also read the other reviews before you start for useful hints. I installed by myself using a floor jack to raise the hitch up into place as another reviewer suggested, and the hitch slid right up into position for bolting. Also, I did not need to undo the exhaust hanger, just moved it out of the way a little to get clearance. 52094

This is a well made tow bar. The powder coat finish well done except for inside the receiver. However, as in other posts packaging needs work. The box was broken and retaped at on end, and the nice powder coat was worn off in places. If you're going thru the expense of powder coating, why would you have mediocre packaging. DO NOT CUT your plastic panel until you size up the tow bar. In my case the drawing was off buy 2 inches, peak thru on the driver side of the panel and locate your mount holes,before you remove the panel. Use a grease pencil and sketch out a rough hole. The panel cuts easily with a sharp mat knife, error on the side of too small. Flex down the outside of the panel to start the bolts. I did not have to remove the exhaust hanger, the bar will slip thru the gap. Drivers side first, other side supported by 5 gal bucket and helper. Easy install. 20139

Product is well built and looks good. Installation was easy (mostly due to etrailer's great videos). I was able to do the install alone. By myself it took about 1.5 hours. If I had a helper the 40 min suggested time would have been about right. The 2012 AWD LE sienna undercarriage plastic is slightly different than shown in the video and directions and requires an additional cut to make the hitch fit correctly, but again not a big deal (I included a pic of the added cut). 91877

1 year after purchase and having lived through a Minnesota winter this thing still looks brand new. After buying it I always notice other Siennas with trailer hitches and most of the time they're either starting to rust or are just cheap looking. The build quality on this one is excellent. It was a bit of a pain but I managed to install the thing myself - I'd highly recommend having a helper. We've got a 2013 AWD Sienna and the underbody trim had a bump that wasn't accounted for in the instructions (although it looks like they added this in there now); the right thing to do probably would have been to cut it out, but I just left it there and the bar pushes it out of the way. I couldn't fit my torque wrench in to get to the mounting bolts so I brought it to a mechanic to get them to the right torque, I didn't want to gamble on not having them tight enough. 264456

Well, it took exactly one half hour to put on. Including watching the video on how to install and cut out the plastic cover. I cannot express how much I am impressed with etrailer. In this day and age, it is difficult to find a company that gives service properly and promptly. Etrailer does more than that. I spoke with an agent from customer service via email requesting more information and she was outstanding. She was able to sweeten the deal for me by attach links to installation videos for the hitch and the wiring harness. I only have one regret. I thought I could out think the video and decided that I would cut out the spot on both sides of the plastic undercovering. The video shows one side and it was for good reason. The plastic shrouding is not as wide as the hitch/ therefore it did not need to slots. It only needed one.....damn...... 64741

I cannot believe how well this purchase and install went. etrailer.com had the most info and options and the best price. Got my hitch in five days. It fit perfectly, with great instructions and not one, but two, videos for guidance on the etrailer.com website. Finished product looks like a factory install. Three tips: 1.) on some Toyota Siennas, you have to trim the plastic panel in two places - the second place is right behind the receiver, where you have to cut about a 2.5" square out 2.) When installing, you don't have to lower the exhaust - you can easily work the hitch up to its mounting location, but you need to have small hands and at least a 6" extension on your ratchet to get the bolts in. 3.) It's definitely a two person job, as the hitch weighs about 40 lbs. I am very happy with the purchase and the installation is very do-able. 280366

Hitch is doing great. I was impressed with how well the I assume powder coating held up to all the road salt this winter. Other brand hitch we had on RAV4 was 75 rust after 5 years.

When I received the hitch the box was a bit torn up. When I opened it up the hitch seemed fine with no scratches, but when I went to install it I found the bolt holes were out of alignment. Standing it on it's side I could see one of the side brackets was bent in about an inch or so. I needed the hitch installed by the weekend so going through the hassle of shipping it back was not really an option, so I bent it back out using a cut wood post and a car jack. I went very slow making sure I wasn't splitting the weld. Everything held together and it straightened right out and it installed just fine. Now, I don't know if it was bent before or after shipping, but from a customer pov I don't really care. I just want my purchase in good condition when it arrives at my door. I would have contacted etrailer directly but time was an issue like I said. 286495

Excellent product. Installed easily with no vehicle modifications on the 2007 Sienna van. It was a simple bolt on installation. I'm glad the instructions specified the torque settings (79 ft. lbs.) because I would have never known to snug them that tight. It seems that the cupped washers had to be compressed to serve as lock washers. That seemed like a lot of torque. I was afraid that the bolts were going to shear, but they did not. Once the washers got compressed the bolts tightened up to recommended torque. 149549

How did you attach the trailer wiring harness to the hitch? I did not see an attachment for it in the pictures. Thank you.

The attachment show is a bracket for 5 and 6 pin trailer sockets, not very common configuration. As an example, a 2012 Toyota Sienna would use part # 118498
T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector
$50.65
as a harness kit. From there you can use a bracket like part # 18144
Mounting Bracket 4-Pole Flat
$3.72
. The hardware should not be secured into the hitch though. It can be attached to a trim panel on the underside of the minivan or used with a clamp-on bracket like part # 18136
No-Drill Mount Bracket, Long
$13.46

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


  • Is There a Minimum Hitch Receiver-to-Ground Height Clearance Requirement for Trailer Hitches
  • I am not aware of any legally mandated minimum ground clearance requirement for trailer hitch receivers in any states and my online research did not reveal any such laws. However, I did find on an internet forum for Sienna owners posts related to your exact concern: too little hitch receiver-to-ground clearance. This vehicle simply sits quite low to the ground. Typically the various hitch receivers offered by the major manufacturers will tend to be of fairly similar proportions, which...

  • Differences Between Curt Hitch # C13105 and Hidden Hitch # 87415 for a 2008 Toyota Sienna
  • As far as installation and strength are concerned, the two hitches are actually very similar. Both install in the same location and mounting holes on the vehicle, and both are rated to tow up to 3500lbs. Both hitches will also have a similar ground clearance, because they both would feature the entire cross tube running below the vehicle bumper once installed. The main difference in this case would really be aesthetics. The Curt hitch # C13105 is angled slightly near the ends, so...

  • Bolt Size for Curt Trailer Hitch, # 13256 and Availability of Replacement Hardware
  • The bolts for the CURT Trailer Hitch, # 13105, for the 2006 Toyota Sienna, are M12 - 1.25 x 40 hex bolts. I have included a link to the installation details below for the hitch. Re-tapping a weldnut can be difficult and you could end up breaking it loose from the frame. Instead, I would first try to clean them out using a penetrating spray like WD-40 or similar product, and then give them a thorough cleaning with a wire brush like the Battery Post and Terminal Cleaner - Wire Brush,...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2016 Toyota Sienna XLE
  • For your 2016 Toyota Sienna XLE I recommend Curt trailer hitch # C13105. This is a Class III trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver. If you plan on doing some towing with the hitch the recommended ball mount is # C45067. It has a 2-1/2 inch rise and 3-3/4 inch drop. For a 2 inch ball I recommend # 40038. For a 2-5/16 inch ball I recommend # C40007. And for a hitch pin I recommend the classic # PC3. If the ball mount kit does not have the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level,...

  • Differences Between Available Class III Hitches for 2011 Toyota Sienna
  • The Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite model hitches you referenced would be identical, since Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite are sister companies. Both hitches are identical in looks, share the same capacity and would install in the same manner. The Curt # C13105 has a straight cross tube that bends slightly at each end, while the Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite Hitches have a cross tube that angles rearward from the receiver opening, with no bend. I have provided side by side photos showing the # 87698...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2012 Toyota Sienna for Trailer Towing and Bike Rack
  • Since you want to tow a trailer and use the hitch for bikes, I recommend a Class III trailer hitch for your 2012 Toyota Sienna. A Class III trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver is going to afford you more options for accessories than a smaller hitch. The receiver on any of the available trailer hitches will be directly below the rear bumper on the van, including the Curt hitch, # C13105, that you have referenced. Because the vehicle sits so low to the ground, ground clearance can be...

  • Hitch, Wiring, and Towing Recommendations for a 2016 Toyota Sienna LE AWD
  • Good news! You came to the right place, I can help you get all the items you need. The trailer hitch that I recommend for you is the Draw-Tite # 75237. This hitch has a 675lb tongue weight (TW) and a 4,500lbs towing capacity. If used with a weight distribution that towing weight can be increased. The Draw-Tite hitch has a combination of a e-coat and powder coat finish that provides excellent rust protection. But according to your owners manual the gross trailer weight must never...

  • Best 4- or 5-Bike Rack for Curt 2 Inch Trailer Hitch on a 2016 Toyota Sienna
  • I can help you find the best bike rack for your family's bikes on your 2016 Sienna. First thing we know about the 2 inch Curt Hitch # C13105 is that the clearance from the center of the pin hole to the edge of the bumper is 4-1/2 inches. This will come in handy when selecting the best rack for you. Between the two Thule 5-bike racks, I would recommend the Thule Apex # TH9026 over the Vertex # TH9030XT because of the distance between the bike racks arms being 12-1/4, which will allow...

  • Will Thule Vertex Swinging Bike Rack Fit a 2013 Toyota Sienna with Curt Class III Trailer Hitch
  • With the Curt trailer hitch # C13105 installed on a 2013 Toyota Sienna it measures 6 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to clear the back bumper, see video showing installation. This isn't that far at all and most bike racks will clear the back of the van with room to spare. On the Thule Vertex swinging bike rack # TH9031XT it measures 8-1/2 inches from the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the rack so it will clear the rear bumper by about 2-1/2 inches and fit your van!...

  • Which Trailer Hitch for a 2007 Toyota Sienna Has the Most Ground Clearance
  • When we have installed trailer hitch # 36513 on Toyota Sienna vans the same generation as yours we measured approximately 11 inches from level ground to the TOP of the receiver opening. To the bottom of the receiver that would be approximately 9-1/2 inches. On a 2 inch Class III hitch like # C13105, the measurement to the top of the tube is 10-1/4 inches and to the bottom of the tube it is 8 inches. The smaller Class II hitches like # 36513 will give you a little more clearance but have...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2014 Toyota Sienna and Thule Hitching Post Pro Bike Carrier
  • The Thule Hitching Post Pro bike carrier # TH934XTR does fit both 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch trailer hitches using the included sleeve that fits on the bike carrier shank. With the adapter sleeve on it fits 2 inch hitches. If given the option of a 1-1/4 inch or 2 inch hitch I always recommend the 2 inch hitch. A 2 inch trailer hitch is going to be sturdier and have more accessory options than 1-1/4 inch hitches. And since this carrier has a threaded hitch bolt to limit movement of the carrier...

  • Trailer Hitch and Hitch Mount Folding Cargo Carrier for a 2004 Toyota Sienna
  • We have installed Curt trailer hitch # C13105 on several Toyota Sienna models and the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole back to clear the rear bumper varies from 4 inches to 5-1/2 inches. Any given 2 vehicles of the same make and model and same generation will have slight differences which is why not all of the measurements are the same. The only way to know for sure on a vehicle is to install the hitch. The Draw-Tite hitch # 75237 has a longer clearance measurement of approximately...

  • Recommended Remedy for Trailer Hitch Receiver That Scrapes on the Ground
  • A smaller 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch on your 2008 Toyota Sienna will have a slightly greater height above ground than a 2-inch Class III type. For example, when we installed hitch # 36513 on a 2007 Sienna we found that the top of the receiver tube was 11-inches above ground. When we installed 2-inch Class III hitch # C13105 the top of the tube was 10-1/4-inches above ground. Please refer to the linked videos if you like. Yes, you gain a bit of clearance with a smaller Class II hitch but...

  • I have a solution that will enable you to carry 4 bikes on your 2008 Toyota Sienna that allows you to fold the bike rack up when not in use. For a trailer hitch, I recommend the Curt # C13105. This hitch has a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper of 4 inches. This hitch has the shortest distance available at this time. I have attached a brief installation video on a 2007 Sienna. You are correct about the Swagman XTC4 # S64665 that...

  • Trailer Hitch Fits and Resulting Ground Clearance for 2007 Toyota Sienna
  • The nature of the 2007 Toyota Sienna's design means it will sit lower than many vehicles, and this then means that an installed hitch receiver will do the same. All hitches for your car, shown on the linked page, install at the exact same mounting points and will rest just under the rear bumper cover. Any hitch, whether a 2-inch Class III type like # C13105 or a 1-1/4-inch Class II type like # C12065, will reduce your ground clearance to some degree. I linked a hitch install video for reference.

  • Your 2014 Toyota Sienna can be fitted with either of two sizes/classes of trailer hitch, either a light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class II type or a 2-inch Class III type that offers higher capacity. Since the costs between the two types are so close, and since a 2-inch hitch offers better flexibility with accessories like bike racks and cargo carriers, I suggest the Curt # C13105. This hitch's installation is shown in the linked video, and the written instructions as well as two helpful installation...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Toyota Sienna SE
  • Both the Curt Hitch part # C13105 and the Draw-Tite part # 75237 will fit pretty tight to the rear of your 2014 Toyota Sienna. I attached an install pic of both hitches to show you that they both hitches will basically be just as tight. The e-coating is not that new. I will say that if you stripped the e-coat from the hitch, had it galvanized and then powdercoated it would be very corrosion resistant. Is that excessive? Maybe, but it should work.

If you check out the installation instructions and the install video I attached you will see more info on how it gets trimmed. Leaving the panel off would be an option, it wouldn't cause any corrosion or have any undesired effect as this is just an appearance panel.

This will work great for your 4 bikes and has wider wheel trays to allow for the install of fat tire bikes. For a hitch for your 2006 Toyota Sienna you would then want the Curt hitch part # C13105 which has been confirmed to fit your vehicle and is the best priced option.
