Expert Answers about Curt

  • 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...

  • Comparing Curt 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver to Draw-Tite 2 Inch Receiver for 2018 VW Atlas
  • For your 2018 VW Atlas, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13366 will be about 1-1/2 inches recessed behind your bumper and will drop 8.44 inches from the mount to the bottom of the receiver tube according to my tech contact at Curt. The Draw-Tite # 76176 will have the receiver tube extend about 6-1/2 inches from the rear mounting hole and will drop 8.8 inches from the mount to the bottom of the receiver tube according to my tech contract at Draw-Tite. For your trailer wiring, I...

  • Comparing the Curt Hitch C13409 and Draw-Tite Hitch for a 2019 Subaru Forester
  • The best trailer hitch we have for your 2019 Subaru Forester is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76271. The reason that this is the best trailer hitch for you is because it is a custom fit which means no cutting or drilling is required. It has a class III, 2" receiver tube opening and is rated for a trailer up to 3,500 lbs. It also has a durable black powder coated finish and comes with a lifetime warranty. The other trailer hitch option we have for you is the Curt...

  • 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...

  • Comparing Draw-Tite and Curt Class III Trailer Hitches For 2018 Honda Odyssey
  • Both the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76171 and the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13370 referenced in your question are Class III hitches that are confirmed to fit your 2018 Honda Odyssey. 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. The Draw-Tite # 76171 features a higher 4,500 pound towing capacity and 675 pound tongue weight...

  • Which Trailer Hitch for a 2015 Ford Edge has the Best Ground Clearance
  • 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...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2015 BMW X5
  • We have two options for trailer hitches for a 2015 BMW X5 that will fit all their motor and package options. The options are the Curt Class III 2 inch, # 13077, and the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver Class III - 2 inch, # 75600. Both trailer hitches will require fascia trimming, but will not require any drilling into your frame. Both hitches are very good quality and will hold up very well. I recommend the Draw-Tite option based on the look and the fact that it does not...

  • Front Hitch Installation Clearance On A 2017 Honda Ridgeline
  • We currently have two different front mounted hitch options for your 2017 Honda Ridgeline. This being the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C31082 and the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 65073. According to the manufacturer, the Curt trailer hitch receiver "will" require you to trim the front fascia on the vehicle whereas Draw-Tite says you "may" have to. Regardless, the trimming on both applications will only be minor if even necessary. The bottom...

  • 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...

  • 4-Pole Trailer Wiring Harness for 2017 Toyota Tacoma
  • We do offer two choices in a plug-in T-connector 4-pole wiring harness for your 2017 Toyota Tacoma. Both are intended for trucks without the factory tow package. Please note that the term 'tow package' does not always mean the same thing. What is included in a 'tow package' can vary considerably from auto maker to auto maker, between models and even between model years. In our experience a Tacoma will either have a complete wiring set-up with wiring and trailer connector at the back...

  • Installed Position of Draw-Tite & Curt 2-Inch Hitches on 2016 Mazda CX-9
  • We have not yet had a local customer bring in a 2016 Mazda CX-9 for a hitch install but I can give you some help in determining the installed position for a hitch. 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. Since both install on the bottom surface of the car's frame what I did was measure...

  • Difference between Item # C56382 and Item # 118753 for a 2018 Honda Odyssey
  • 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...

  • Will Curt Echo Brake Controller Continue to Operate with Phone Turned Off
  • After the Curt Echo Wireless Brake Controller # C51180 is installed and paired to your phone it will continue to function as a proportional brake controller whether or not your phone is on. If your phone happens to die mid-trip, the brake controller will continue to operate without issue with the most recent settings applied. The only thing you will lose in this scenario is the manual override function, which is operated by touching the big red dot on the phone screen. This may be needed...

  • Difference Between Proportional Brake Controller and Time-Delayed Controller on 2018 Toyota Tundra
  • The difference between a proportional brake controller and a time-delayed brake controller is that a proportional controller is pretty simple. 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. A proportional brake controller like...

  • Parts Needed to Add a 7-Way to a 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • First you would need a 4-way for your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe to start for trailer wiring. For that you would need the part # 118269. 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. For a brake controller I would...

  • Needing a Gooseneck Ball for a 2017 Ford F-350 With the Factory Puck System

The Reese kite will also include the safety chain loops and the 2-5/16 ball, but the Reese ball includes an integrated lock that makes installing and removing the ball easy and fast.

When stabilizing straps are not used on these hitches, the warranty is void and will no longer be covered by Curt. Draw-Tite hitches do not require stabilizing straps to be used on non trailer loads. The Curt and Draw-Tite Hitches have...

  • 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...

Both receivers are basically identical as they have the same weight bearing capabilities and install in the same manner. If you are interested in using your hitch for towing, you will need a hitch ball, ball mount and pin and clip.

If you need additional clearance to stay level, you would want to consider a king pin replacement; I've added a link to our page with all of our replacement king pins for you to take a look at.
