Expert Answers about Curt

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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 Curt 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver to Other Options for 2018 Mazda CX-5
  • That is a great question. Our pricing reflects the manufacturer pricing and many other factors at any given time. If you are interested in that Curt hitch, then I recommend the etrailer.com hitch which is identical to that hitch with the difference being the powder coat color. The # C13315 is gloss black and the # e98902 is the matte black carbide finish. Your other option for the higher rated capacities is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76138 which has a slightly...

  • 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...

  • Comparing the 2 Trailer Hitches for a 2018 Honda CR-V
  • The biggest difference between the Draw-Tite # 76128, Curt # C13397, and etrailer # e98848 trailer hitches for your 2018 Honda CR-V is that the Draw-Tite has a visible cross tube once installed while the Curt and etrailer have a "hidden" design where only the receiver is visible (see comparison photo). The Curt and etrailer hitches have the exact same design and will install the same way but I recommend going with the etrailer hitch over the Curt option because it has a matte black finish...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Difference Between Curt Adjustable Trailer Hitches 13703 and 13704
  • The difference between the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receivers # 13703 and # C13704 are the slightly different size of the brackets. Apart from that they are the same, fitting 22" to 72" box frames, C-channel frames, or I-beam frames and have a 3,500 lb towing capacity and 350 lb tongue weight capacity. The Stabilizing Straps # 18050 which are needed for the # 13703 are easily secured; you only need to find a place for the hooks to grasp onto. I have added a link to a video...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Comparing the Curt Q20 and the Curt A20 5th Wheel Hitches.
  • As far as height adjustability and weight capacities the Curt Q20 # C16130 and the Curt A20 # C16140 are identical. They both have a Gross Towing Weight of 20,000 lbs, a Vertical Load Limit of 5,000 lbs, and a height range of 13-17 inches. When it comes to choosing which one is better, even though they are both excellent choices, I recommend going with the A20 because it has more features. Right off the bat the A20 has interlocking jaws to secure your king pin as opposed to the Q20 jaw...

  • 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....

  • 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...

  • Best Trailer Hitch for 2018 Subaru Impreza
  • Since all hitches are made of steel and are designed to bolt on to the exact same points on any given vehicle there is not usually much weight difference between brands of hitches of the same receiver size and Class rating. But in the case of your 2018 Subaru Impreza Wagon there are actually three different Classes of hitch available, Classes I, II and III, which do have differing weights since some simply have more steel material.
