Expert Answers about Bumper Hitch


  • Fit of Curt E-3S Bumper Hitch on 2021 Ford Ranger
  • The Curt # E-3S bumper hitch isn't a vehicle specific product, it'll fit many different step bumper equipped trucks and SUV's. If your Ranger is equipped with a step bumper with holes spaced as shown in the photo, it'll fit. The hitch itself carries a 5000 lb capacity, which could be limited by the capacity of the bumper which might be less (contact your local Ford dealer for exact bumper capacity). This being said, I'd highly recommend going with a custom-fit frame mounted hitch...

  • Universal Bumper Mount Hitch or Custom Fit Hitch Receiver for a 2013 Nissan Frontier
  • The Curt 2" Trailer Hitch - Bumper Mount - 10-1/2" Bolt Pattern item # C19031 is a universal fit for any truck with a step bumper. I have linked a diagram detailing the measurements of this bumper mounted hitch. This is not a custom fit so you will have to drill into your Nissan Frontier's bumper. If you would like a custom fit hitch that bolts directly to your vehicles frame I recommend the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Matte Black Finish - Class III - 2" item # e98869....

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver For a 1989 Ford F-350 Pickup Truck
  • With the Curt 2" Trailer Hitch # C19031 only rated for up to 5,000lbs that is the most it is capable of towing. The maximum tongue weight is 500lbs. This receiver is a universal type fit that mounts on bumpers with 10-1/2" between center on the bolt holes. I do believe on your 1989 Ford F-350 the bumper is not rated for the same amount that you can haul with a Trailer Hitch Receiver that attaches to the frame. I recommend using the B&W Heavy-Duty Trailer Hitch Receiver # BWHDRH25122...

  • Hidden Hitch Recommendation for a 2002 Toyota Tacoma
  • I think that your best bet would be to install a hitch that installs onto the frame of your 2002 Toyota Tacoma, like a Draw-tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75078. Not only will you have a much higher towing capacity, you will not have to make any permanent modifications to your vehicle bumper that might void the warranty of the vehicle. I attached installation instructions and a review video for this product for you to check out also. To complete your towing setup you may be interested...

  • 2 inch Hitch for 2011 Toyota Prius
  • It might be possible to install the Curt hitch part # E-3S in theory to the rear bumper beam of your 2011 Toyota Prius but this is not the intended application for this hitch and I am sure Toyota would also recommend against this as well. The bumper beam appears to not be compatible with this either. We have 2 inch hitches that fit your vehicle with the EcoHitch part # 306-X7178 though which I would recommend highly if you were looking for something safe for both the vehicle and whatever...

  • Fit of Curt 2-Inch Bumper-Mount Hitch E-3S on Step Bumper of 2011 Toyota Tacoma
  • I got a sample of the Curt 2-Inch Bumper-Mount Hitch # E-3S from our warehouse so I could re-check the size and spacing of the mounting holes. The larger oval holes that accept the 3/4-inch hex bolts measure 3/4-inch x 1-1/4-inch. Their two outside edges are 9-3/4-inches apart and their two inside edges are spaced at 7-1/4-inches apart. This means you should have enough bolt clearance with your bumper's 8-inch center-to-center hole spacing. Those holes will need to be large enough to accept...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For Carrying Two Bikes With 2008 Lincoln Town Car
  • I have a different option for you, but the Curt Bumper Mount Hitch # C19031 only fits trucks with a step bumper and as such will not fit your 2008 Lincoln Town Car. Instead you will need to go with the Curt # 13707 which is designed for your vehicle and will be perfect for carrying two bikes with a bike rack thanks to the 400lb tongue weight rating of this hitch. If you do not already have a bike rack I recommend going with the Yakima RidgeBack 2 Bike Rack # Y02457 which will fit...

  • Could Curt Bumper Mounted Hitch # E-3S Fit 2003 Ford F-150
  • To see if the # E-3S would fit the mounting holes of your 2003 Ford F-150 you'd need to compare the dimensions you see in the attached picture with what you have on your truck. This is a universal fit hitch solution so we don't have specific fit info for it on vehicles. Best option would be a frame mounted hitch like the Draw Tite part # 37130 which we can guarantee is a fit and also will have much higher towing capacities.

Installation hardware is included. The hitch mounting holes are spaced at 6-inches apart on center (the smaller set of holes) and on 8-3/4-inches apart on center (the larger set) as shown in the linked photo. If the spacing of the mounting holes does not match your bumper then you can drill new holes in...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2009 Toyota Tacoma
  • I have a much better solution for you than the Curt Hitch part # E-3S. You would want to go with a custom fit hitch instead like the part # 13323 as it will bolt directly to the frame and provide you with a much stonger and easier to install hitch than the # E-3S that would require you to use all 4 mouning holes. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball...

  • Recommended Hitch Solution for Carrying Bicycle on Rear of RV with C-Channel Bumper
  • The Curt # E-3S hitch you mentioned is recommended for use on a truck step bumper, as shown in the provided diagram. A bolt-on hitch like the Ultra-Fab # UF35-946401 would be a better choice. This hitch is designed to fit bumpers that are up to 4-1/2 by 4 inches. The bolt on receiver has a 200 lb capacity, but you'll need to check with the RV manufacturer to determine the capacity of the bumper. You'll need to abide by whichever capacity is lowest. I'd also recommend using a bike rack...

  • Hitch for 2015 Ford Explorer XLT to Allow Use of Hitch-Mount Cargo Carrier
  • When using a vehicle hitch for a static load like a hitch-mount cargo carrier the hitch rating that matters most is its tongue weight (TW) rating, which is downward force on the hitch tube from whatever item is installed in it. I do not recommend use of a bumper-mount hitch for a cargo box application. Instead I suggest using a frame-mounted custom-fit hitch with a high TW rating, Draw-Tite 2-inch Class III hitch # 76034. Since this hitch bolts to the vehicle's frame it can offer a...

  • Trailer Hitch to Mount On the Back of a Horse Trailer for a Cargo Carrier
  • What I recommend is to use a frame mount trailer hitch, # 13703 and stabilization strap # 18050 to hold a cargo carrier on your trailer. The Curt hitch will mount to a box frame, I-beam frame, or C-channel frame. It can be bolted or welded on (welding needs to be done by a qualified professional welder). I have included a link to the installation instructions and a video showing a typical installation for you. This hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds so the combined weight...

You would need to go with a frame mounted hitch custom fit for your vehicle. For that you would want the part # 13138. This will mount to the frame of your truck and will give you a hitch opening right under the bumper. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

The # C19031 that you referenced is a universal install hitch that isn't designed for your truck specifically so it's not going to fit it easily if at all.

  • Will Using Ball Mount with a Rise/Drop with Bumper Mount Trailer Hitch E-3S Decrease Hitch Capacity
  • It sounds like you are talking about using a ball mount that has a rise in the shank of 5 to 6 inches. Using a ball mount in the rise or drop position does not decrease the gross trailer weight of tongue weight capacities of Curt trailer hitch # E-3S. It is likely that the bumper of your vehicle is rated lower than the hitch. Typically, bumpers, if rated for towing, max out at 3,500 pounds. You will need to check the owners manual of the vehicle or the bumper manufacturer if aftermarket...

The # 13445 attaches directly to the bottom of the vehicle frame which gives you a very solid connection.

  • Will Bumper Mount Trailer Hitch Fit for 2019 Ford Ranger
  • The Curt 2" Trailer Hitch - Bumper Mount # E-3S is a universal type of fit with top bolt holes that measure 6" apart on center while the bottom holes measure 8-3/4" apart on center. If you don't have those measurements you would need to "mark and drill holes for two 3/4" bolts and two 1/2" bolts" according to the linked installation instructions. This would not be a very stable or secure hitch so I very strongly recommend instead going with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13417 which...

  • I think you meant to say that your 2018 Chevrolet Colorado has a towing capacity of 3,500 and are wanting to make sure a trailer hitch rated for 5,000 lbs could be used. If that is the case then yes but you will always need to abide by the weakest rated component which is your vehicle. Therefore, you can tow your bass boat trailer no matter what trailer hitch you are using assuming the trailer is under 3,500 lbs which is what you said your vehicle's towing capacity was.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2002 GMC Sierra 1500 with Factory Step Bumper
  • To determine if the Curt bumper mount trailer hitch # C19031 will fit your 2002 GMC Sierra 1500 with factory bumper you have to look to see what the holes spacing is on the bumper. The hitch will fit if the bolt holes are 10-1/2 inches apart on center. If the hole spacing won't work with your truck I recommend a frame mounted hitch, # 13322, which will also be a stronger hitch since it attaches to the truck frame. It is rated for 600 pounds tongue weight and 6,000 pounds gross trailer...

  • The Curt Hitch part # C19031 that you referenced is a universal fit hitch that is designed to fit several vehicles. The distance between the mounting holes is 10-1/2 inches.
