Rugged, Matte Black Finish

The sturdy steel construction is protected with a matte black finish for added durability. This unique powder coating gives etrailer hitches a carbide-like appearance and a rugged look that sets them apart from traditional glossy hitches. In addition to being rust and corrosion resistant, the tough matte coating hides dirt, scuffs, and dings better than a glossy finish.

Review from a similar Trailer Hitch 13165 in Trailer Hitch


This was a relatively straightforward install on my 2021 NV200 aside from the fact that I first tried option 1 (as described in the instructions) for fishing bolts from the back and just could not get the bolt and spacer past the suspension shackle. The guy in the video made it look easy but he’s probably done it a hundred times and has the right touch. No matter how many times I tried, over a period of about an hour, the bolt and spacer just got stuck on the suspension shackle (I was lured into a sense of confidence after watching the video and with the knowledge that I am pretty good at fishing wires; the skill did not readily transfer). Then it took me another hour to get the bolt back out again to try option 2. With a titanium unibit, enlarging the secondary frame access hole and fishing from the front was way easier (I just had a standard drill; a right angle drill would have made it easier to work in that tight space). I thought I would save time with option 1 and not having to enlarge the secondary access hole but in retrospect the whole process would have been much simpler if I had begun with option 2. With this one exception, the how to video and the instructions are excellent and I was able to tackle the project with confidence despite never having installed a hitch before. I loved the fish wires that came as part of the kit that were designed to thread onto the bolts (very clever). I of course removed the spare tire before I started to have space to work under the van and get the hitch into position, but could not get the exhaust detached from the rubber isolator. I just gave up on that as there was enough play in the system to get the hitch up and over the exhaust system without fully detaching. I had to remove a small bracket used to hold wiring on the right and cut away some of the trim to expose a rear mounting hole. One other detail I had to address was my van has an aftermarket rear seat installed and the anchor bracket for that interfered slightly with the positioning for the hitch. I used a grinder to cut a small notch in the hitch so it would fit around this bracket.

Fits perfect , only only thing I would highly stress about installation and do believe should be added to footnotes is when you feed the wire thru frame to drag bolt thru make sure the wire is on top of the shackle bolt inside the frame .
I learned the hard way . Fed wire thru , then attached bolt and washer and went to pull thru and it got wedged under the lower bolt shackle inside frame and was stuck . Had to drill a hole inside van right above the area to retrieve bolt .
Really need to add to instructions . After I figured that out rest were fairly easy . But big set back back for one bolt .

Review from a similar Trailer Hitch 13165 in Trailer Hitch


Pretty easy and straightforward install. I handled it alone in my carport, and it took about 3 hours, total. I didn't need to elevate the van at all, and I used basic tools, the scissor jack that came with the van as an extra hand at the end, and a dremel to enlarge the frame holes to fish the bolts through using method #2, as the process shown in the video was not possible on my '15 Chevy City Express. Enlarging the forward frame holes to fish the bolts through was the toughest part, but wasn't overly difficult, and I sprayed the holes with a little rustoleum paint I already had when I was finished to prevent rust. (Keep that in mind if you don't have any on hand.) I needed to remove one small bracket holding some wires from the frame on the passenger side, and just zip-tied the wire to the hitch in the same spot when I was done. The same wire also needed to be slightly relocated just below the rear bumper to allow the hitch to fit into place. Those two steps were not in the directions, but were obvious and very simple to take care of with 2 zip-ties. Overall, the fit of the hitch was really good, and so far it seems like a high quality piece. The paint looks good, it doesn't protrude from the rear bumper, and it is very sturdy but not excessively heavy. I am happy with the purchase and install. If you're handy and have tools don't waste your money paying a shop to put it on for you, and you don't need a lift, ramps, or jack stands.

Review from a similar Trailer Hitch 13165 in Trailer Hitch


Nissan nv200 curt hitch. A great product, but a bit misleading on the ease of mounting. Bolts are 2 big to fish around leaf spring mount. And no demo on the difficulty enlarging hole to access mt. Points.


Comments
I recommend using the bolt leader to fish wire the bolts through the hole in the frame towards the rear of the vehicle. The video link below shows this location after mark 3:20.

Little trickey installing this but I managed it using a large pneumatic jack I have for working on all sorts of farm equipment. Liked the ingenuity of the wire/threaders for the nuts and bolts. It fit perfectly into the rear space under my Nissan NV200 and does not interfer with the spare tire. I am very pleased with it.

Review from a similar Trailer Hitch 13165 in Trailer Hitch


Hitch fit my Nissan NV 200 exactly. No cutting or drilling was required to attach hitch. Ingenious method to get the mounting bolts to proper location!
I would surely recommend etrailer to anyone looking to buy a trailer hitch.

Review from a similar Trailer Hitch 13165 in Trailer Hitch


The hitch was literally thrown into the box with absolutely NO packaging material wrap. Came in scratched up. Rust will be a problem if I keep this. Returning this to order from someone that knows how to package their orders.


Comments
I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you. I recommend touching up the affected areas with a rust resistant paint which you will then have on hand for regular hitch maintenance.

Review from a similar Trailer Hitch 13165 in Trailer Hitch


The hitch is awesome, I had trouble getting the bolt plates thru the side rails in the frame. after a few hours fighting it, I just drilled a hole thru the floor will use the metal that came out with hole saw to plug the holes. the back to bolts were ok to put in. all in all, for a guy that has not put a hitch on in over 20 years, it took me about 4 hours with my Neighbors help.

Review from a similar Trailer Hitch 13165 in Trailer Hitch


Go with option 2 for the install in the instructions- the video on e trailer does not explain this option- using the wire fish lines to pull the bolts over the shackle bolt that runs through the frame is difficult at best- option 2 with using a step drill bit is super easy

This the the 4th hitch I have ordered for a vehicle from etrailer. Service is always fast. Parts are accurate. Installation has never been difficult.

If I ever need another hitch, I'll be back.

All works fine. When I need trailer parts for my new vehicles, RV, or trailer, I always shop etrailer.

Review from a similar Trailer Hitch 13165 in Trailer Hitch


Well designed product.
Items to note;
The
facia needs trimming but not how the instruction say.
Mine has the bumper proximity sensors which required loosening the wires and cutting a mounting stud.
The instructions show the four frame mounting bolts being feed through the frame with the 1x3" spacers kinked on the wire. This should me more obvious...


Comments
A year later and still great. I don’t use it much though.

Review from a similar Trailer Hitch 13165 in Trailer Hitch


The hitch is solid and is well hidden under the bumper but it has started to rust a little from paint scratches at the receiver. Overall installation was challenging (the hitch had warped during shipoing( but strainer customer service was very helpful.

Review from a similar Trailer Hitch 13165 in Trailer Hitch


Good heavy hitch, it looked flimsy in the picture.
Don't install this hitch if you're not comfortable with a 1" hole saw (not 7/8" like the instructions say). Wear eye protection. The metal pieces go everywhere!
Don't even try to fish the bolt thru the rear access hole- just do the optional bolt installation. (Enlarge the forward frame access hole to 1" just in front of the hitch bolt holes.)
Have some help and put vehicle on a lift if possible.
Mark and trim the plastic part by holding the hitch up to the bumper and mark what needs to be trimmed before you take the trim fasteners out.

Review from a similar Trailer Hitch 13165 in Trailer Hitch


Is instaled already in the van, look good and I believe will be right for what I need, pull a trailer with 2 motorcycles and my other trailer with my jet ski if I need,but the main purpose is to hold a basket in the hitch to carry 4 or 5 cans with fuel and a small generator in long trips, installation was not difficult when my son and I found the way, fit perfect, look strong and I’m satisfied with my purchase.

Review from a similar Trailer Hitch 13165 in Trailer Hitch


I am very happy with the simple installation of this trailer hitch. It installed pretty much as shown on the [installation] video. My only problem is that I may have ordered the wrong hitch for my year van. The frame Chanel was almost completely boxed in at the end with only about a 1 1/2” square hole to fish the bolt and plate thru. With a few adjustments I managed. Very happy with the product though.

Wiring harness was super simple. Trailer hitch was also very easy to install. Will be using to tow small utility trailer. Great company to order great products from!

Review from a similar Trailer Hitch 13165 in Trailer Hitch


Great hitch, fits perfect (maybe too perfect). Instructions were lacking. 7/8" hole for fishing won't work with 1" parts, required 1-1/8" holes. Bumper trim that required cuts were wrong. I suggest putting in place to see cuts. Hitch fits so well, I had to remove any extra sealant left by Nissan at factory and use a floor jack to lift in place.
