  • Distance from Bumper to Top of Curt Trailer Hitch C15703 on a 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15703 hangs pretty low on a 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500. From the bottom of the bumper to the top of the hitch receiver it is approximately 4 inches. I have included a picture showing the gap. A similar hitch, # C15302, which also fits your truck is much tighter to the bumper with only a fraction of an inch of space between the bumper and receiver.

  • Compare Trailer Hitches for a 2018 Toyota Highlander
  • There are a number of trailer hitch receivers that fit your 2018 Toyota Highlander and it can be confusing because they have a lot in common; however there are differences as well. Two of them, the Curt # C13200 and the etrailer.com # E98844, are virtually identical. A third, the Draw-Tite # 75896 is also the same basic design and installation. The biggest difference between these is the Curt and etrailer hitches have the hitch pin hole positioned about 1-3/4 inches further under the...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Chevy Traverse
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13380 sits underneath the factory bumper cover. I've attached a photo to assist. For the fit you are seeking, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76184 which will allow the bumper cover to be installed over the cover to hide and protect it when not in use. If you need the wiring, I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 7-Way Trailer Connector # 118287 and mounting bracket # PK12711U. For...

  • Does Curt Front Hitch for 2017 Ford F-250 Reduce Ground Clearance
  • If you check out the installed picture I attached for the Curt front hitch part # C31078 you can see that the hitch actually is not the lowest hanging portion of the front end of the vehicle it is installed on. The air dam still sits lower than it so no ground clearance would be lost. Some people remove the air dam which would make the hitch the lowest portion of the front of the vehicle. That said, the hitch would still sit higher than if the air dam was left on. The same is true for...

  • Comparing the Curt Spectrum Brake Controller to Redarc Tow-Pro Elite
  • By all accounts the Curt Spectrum Trailer Brake Controller # C51170 works well and is easy to use and install on most vehicles. It is a brand new item so not a lot of feedback has come in on it. I did learn a few things though after speaking with our install team about this controller. First, compared to the Redarc controller # 331-EBRH-ACCV2, the Curt Spectrum is easier to install. It can be surface mounted meaning that drilling is not necessarily required (depends on how you run the...

  • Comparison of Gooseneck Hitch Balls to Fit Ram Truck with Factory Goosneck Package
  • The Curt # C60618, Reese # RP30140, and B&W # BWGNXA2062 hitch balls that fit the factory gooseneck hitch in your Ram are all great quality. There are a few differences though, mainly the way the ball is locked into place. The Curt has an integrated lever in the top of the ball that activates the ball bearings in the shank. The lever is made of steel and very easy to access and use. The Reese ball has a similar lever only you pull and turn it. It's also made of plastic intead of steel...

  • Is Trimming Of Fascia On 2017 Chevrolet Spark Required When Installing Trailer Hitch
  • You are correct. The photos of the trailer hitch installations do appear as though the hitch receiver is below the fascia. Since the fascia wraps under the vehicle the trimming is done on the underside so the receiver can fit. I have attached a photo of the fascia that shows how much is trimmed on the underside for the Curt Hitch, part # C11433. The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 24941 has similar dimensions for the trimming. Both of these trailer htiches are Class l and have 1-1/4...

  • Difference Between Curt Q24, Q25 and A25 Fifth Wheel Hitches for 2016 Ford Rail Kit
  • I reached out to my tech contact at Curt and he said the difference between the Curt Q25 # C16039 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and the Q24 # C16545-16017 is that the pan is slightly larger on the Q25 and they reinforced the main square body as well as the legs for that extra capacity. The A25 # C16036 is a rebranded Q25 with a head that is made of stronger material. I would say yes, the Reese # RP30871 is better. Reese hitches tend to have quite a bit less movement in them and their heads...

These will both install at the same location on your vehicle's frame and the hitch visibility for both models will be about the same. The primary difference between the two is their weight capacity.

  • Curt trailer hitch # C13234 and Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75214, which is the comparable hitch, have the receiver and cross tube in basically the same place so they will have nearly identical ground clearances once installed. If anything the Draw-Tite hitch is a bit tighter to the bottom fascia. The bottoms of the hitches will be approximately 1-1/2 inches or so lower than the bottoms of the exhaust tips. If you are looking at Draw-Tite hitch # 75234 only the receiver will be visible....

  • Is Reverse Light Circuit Needed When Using the Curt Echo Bluetooth Brake Controller
  • If you purchased a 4-Way/7-Way Hopkins adapter like part # 37185 so that you can use the Curt Echo Mobile Trailer Brake Controller # C51180 then you are correct about only needing to connect the 12V power wire for the brake controller (in addition to connecting the typical trailer light circuits and ground). The reverse light wiring is optional and is really only needed if your trailer has a separate circuit for the reverse lights. We actually created the kit # ETBC7L for people who...

  • Wiring Needed to Use Curt Echo Brake Controller on a 2006 BMW X5 with 4-Way Flat Connector
  • You are most of the way there! The Curt Echo Mobile Trailer Brake Controller # C51180 that you purchased for your 2006 BMW X5 just needs the basic trailer lighting functions and 12V power to be fully operational. A 4-Way Flat connector like the popular Tekonsha ZCI # 119250KIT provides the basic trailer lighting functions so once that is installed you simply need to install the 7-Way RV Upgrade Kit # ETBC7L. This includes the 4-Way to 4-Way/7-Way adapter as well as wiring for you...

  • Ground Clearance with Curt Trailer Hitch C12177 Installed on a 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan
  • When we installed Curt trailer hitch # C12177 on a 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan, see video link, it measured 11-1/2 inches from the ground to the top of the receiver opening. That means that from the ground to the bottom of the receiver is approximately 9 inches. There is actually a vehicle component forward of the hitch that hangs lower. For the hitch to make contact with the ground the front axle would have to be up on a very steep incline. Draw-Tite hitch # 76192 sits up higher but there...

I went to our warehouse and measured Draw-Tite hitch # 76020 and Curt hitch # C13284 so you can use those dimensions to give you a close approximation of where the hitch tube will be relative to your bumper and to the ground when installed.

  • The difference between the Curt # C56382 and the Tekonsha T-One # 118753 for your 2018 Honda Odyssey is that it looks like the Curt has the wiring already run for to the battery for power where you will have to run the wiring to the battery yourself with the Tekonsha option. Although the Curt option does seem easier, I do recommend going with the Tekonsha option over the Curt due to how much better the Tekonsha products are created. We don't typically get complaints about the Tekonsha...

  • Difference Between Proportional Brake Controller and Time-Delayed Controller on 2018 Toyota Tundra

A time-delayed controller like the Curt Discovery # C51120 will apply your trailer brakes each time you press the brake pedal in your 2018 Toyota Tundra; it is called time-delayed because there is a slight delay from the time you press your Tundra's brakes to the time the controller reaches max power output.

  • Parts Needed to Add a 7-Way to a 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

Now if your trailer does not have brakes all you would need is the part # 37185 as an adapter to convert the 4-way to a 7-way. If you do have trailer brakes you would need the # ETBC7 instead of the # 37185 and a brake controller. This kit comes with everything needed to wire up the 7-way and install a brake controller.

  • What is Required to Use Curt Echo Trailer Brake Controller
  • To use the Curt Echo Wireless Trailer Brake Controller # C51180 your vehicle only needs 12 volt, ground, and turn signals connected to its 7-way socket. What this means is you do not need the brake signal from the 7-way. For example, if you used a 4-to-7 way adapter such as # 30717, there will not be an output wire from the Echo to connect to, so you could simply tie that wire off, as you can see by the accompanying diagram. Apart from that the only other thing required is that your...

  • What Is Difference Between Curt Q20 and A20 Fifth Wheel Hitch

Also, the Q20 features the 360-degree movement with the spherical axial bearing to improve the pivoting of the hitch head. This feature however, is why the Q20 is not compatible with a Sidewinder or Revolution pin box which the A20 is.

  • Why is Stabilization Strap Required to Use a Bike Rack in a Curt Trailer Hitch on a 2017 Honda CR-V

If you do not want to use the strap then the only remaining option is Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 36597. I have also included a video that shows how the strap works if you choose to go with the Curt hitch.

The benefit though of an aftermarket hitch is that the hitch itself will be less than half the MSRP on the factory hitch and that does not include labor to have it installed if you choose to have the dealer install it.

  • The Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16180 and the Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16265 are both fantastic hitches and extremely similar to each other. Both will provide a 25,000 pound towing weight capacity, an interlocking 2-Jaw system for a secure connection, and a 4 inch height adjustment. The primary difference between the two models is that the A25 # C16180 is essentially an upgraded version of the Q25. The head on the A25 hitch is constructed of stronger material and addresses/resolves...

  • Why are the Hitches for a 2015 Ram ProMaster City Class III 2 inch Hitches
  • For larger vehicles (even ones with low towing capacities) the hitch manufacturers like to make 2 inch hitches for them. 2 inch hitches are generally preferred as they have higher towing capacities and quite a bit more accessories made for them. Whenever available we recommend 2 inch hitches for vehicles for those reasons. For your 2015 Ram Promaster City I would recommend the Draw Tite part # 75219 instead of the Curt you referenced as the Draw Tite does not require the use of a stabilizer...

  • 36 Inch Hitch Extender for a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver on a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
  • I do have options for you but you cannot install two of part # C45796 together to get a total of 36". Doing so would completely diminish your trailer hitches weight capacity. The most cost effective solution I have for you would be to use part # RP45292 for 24"-34" or part # RP45018 for 41"-48". However, both of these options will require a 2-1/2" trailer hitch receiver like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C15860. The best solution I have for you to get a 36" hitch extension...

  • Which Trailer Wiring Harness Fits 2016 Chevy Equinox

I attached pictures that show you where to find the port at the rear of your vehicle. The T-harnesses you mentioned should still work but since they are not designed for your vehicle variation I can't recommend them.

  • Why Does Curt Require Stabilizing Straps for Hitch-Mounted Bike Racks but Draw-Tite Does Not

Using a strap such as Item # 18050 with a Curt hitch will maintain the warranty and provide additional support. I've attached a review video that shows...
