This fully welded trailer hitch receiver bolts onto your vehicle's frame with no welding required. Powder coated steel is sturdy and corrosion resistant.


We ordered the #13526 Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" for my Hyundai Tuscan.

It was easy to install, very sturdy and well made. We had no issues hooking up our mobility scooter carrier and ramp for my mom's scooter to the hitch. It works perfect.

I can now take my mom anywhere she would like to go in my Hyundai and be able to bring her mobility scooter with ease.

Shipping was fast, and we received our product within a few days.

We highly reccomend using etrailer.



Weve had no issues with my hitch, no rust, no problems, still easy to use. Everything still works great.


Works perfect for our Thule X2 bike rack. Exactly what we needed


A little tuff to install. Had to do some drilling to open up the hole on driver side rear. Other than that, worked great and is a clean finish, low profile look I love. Wiring harness was plug and play easy. Had to add some bailing wire as zip ties do not last long in Arizona. No biggie! Great price too!


Great quality and only took a few minutes to install! I highly recommend this product!

2006 Hyundai Tucson

It’s been a year, the hitch has performed flawlessly. It installed easily, and fir great. I’m a mechanic, and have installed dozens of trailer hitches. This truly was made for the car. And the harness I also ordered fit perfectly too. I just wish I’d ordered the ball from you guys too.

2007 Kia Sportage

As advertised, in stock, fast delivery...what else can you ask for? I suggest that etrailer show how to hook up trailer lights for this hitch (sold separately of course). Good equipment!



Our trailer hitch is working great. We love it. Great price. Quality product. Just fantastic!

2009 Hyundai Tucson

A nice fit, I had to remove the two bumper skin brackets furthest out on my 2009 Hyundai Tucson Touring to get things to line up proper. It was my first install and I did it solo (a set of jack stands will be helpful to hold in place as you line the receiver up) It took me over an hour to install, but it's solid! :)

2005 Hyundai Tucson

This hitch fitted on my Hyundai Tucson 2005. It did fit but I had to struggle a little bit to make it fit because in couple of points the hitch body is in contact with the plastic bumper, if it was just 1/2” smaller in height it would have fitted perfectly and made the job easier.
Just follow the installation manual that comes with it, I recommend have a hammer and a piece of wood in case you need to hit it to force it to fit .

2007 Hyundai Tucson

The hitch was delivered 8/13/2019, installed same day.
Easy installation on my 2007 Hyundai Tuscon
Wanted a trailer hitch for when one is needed, just planning ahead.

2008 Kia Sportage

I am very pleased with this trailer hitch. It looks great and is of good quality. The friendly service and fast shipping was a major plus in dealing with this company. Couldn't be happier.

2006 Kia Sportage

Product was received two days after ordering, directions were very clear, hitch was installed within a half an hour without any issues. I definitely would order from a trailer again!


Install was easy by using video. Took about 30 minutes including time to watch video,Great company to work with


Curt hitch fit my 2005 Tucson perfectly. Good packaging, received box with no damages earlier then expected. I chose etrailer for their informative website and competitive pricing.


Looks great fits perfectly. I watched [online] installation video before starting. Easy enough to do by one person. Could use help holding but not necessary.

2007 Hyundai Tucson

Ever thing went great, I just follow the video instructions. Fast delivery, received my hitch in less then 24hrs. Installed by myself in 90 min. Or less.
FYI: I am Michael’s Dad he recommended your company


This would be 5 stars for quality of construction.
I deducted a point because the installation is not simple. Regardless of how I held the new hitch it would not slide into position without scratching the lower part of the bumper. If you were to take out the muffler then you would have complete access to the mounting points. But short of doing that you will scratch your car. There is no way around it.



A year in and no issues whatsoever. The finish still looks good, no rust, works for my tiny trailer every time.

2005 Hyundai Tucson

Hitch promptly and I got it installed in no time. Two comments, first I used the car jack to lift the hitch into position. If you don't have that as a suggestion for installation tips, you might consider it. Using the jack made a 1-person install easy since I didn't have to hold it while bolting. Second, I was sorry to see the ball mount was made in China -- I would have paid more for an American made one.

Thanks for the quick delivery and good price!

Clay M.


Using the jack is a stroke of genius! However, when I did it by myself, I had trouble with lateral movement to line up the holes. Thus, I took the jack down and lined up the holes first. Then, as I held the hitch in place, my son operated the jack. After it was in place, the job was very easy! There are no worries about the ball coming undone. I put the ball on the wrong bracket the longer one was too low and had to remove it. The lock washer is hard core! Metal was flying as I broke it loose there was no damage, just some pits where the washer engaged. Thus, I do not see it ever coming off by itself.I have not seen it in action yet, but everything looks robust. I will be pulling my boat tomorrow. I do not foresee any issues. I will re-comment if there are any.


Fit's perfect holes line up easy to install. Good price, hitch is made super good . You can install this your self at home .5 stars make sure you order harness kit for your light, no cutting wires, ever things plugs in .takes about 1& half hours to install everything & my husband took his time.

2005 Hyundai Tucson

Out of box took 30 mins and had this thing on. One of the bolt holes was off had to grind the hole ever so slightly but got her bolted on. This thing is solid great quality have to give it a 5 stars. etrailer videos are what they show no bs here folks buy from etrailer you won't be sorry. Also the shipping got here when they said it would super fast. Thanks etrailer will order my trailer wiring harness from you guys to rig up my trailer lights if it's anything like the hitch then it should be a breeze thanks again.

2010 Kia Sportage

GREAT quality and GREAT trailer hitch. I watched your install video, everything fit perfectly. Last year I purchased a trailer hitch for my wife's KIA, and it was perfect. That is the reason I came back to purchase this one.

Jerome P.


It is still the best hitch, and the most concealed hitch by design


The hitch fit and looks great. Excellent service and fast delivery!

2008 Harley-Davidson Tucson

The hitch appears to be very heavy duty and good quality. Fallowing the instructions to install it was very easy. The hitch was a gift for my father and he is pretty good do it yourself handy man kind of guy. I myself am a highly skilled mechanic who works on industrial pressure for washers. So him and I were able to tackle the job of installing the hitch in about 45 minutes. I was really impressed with how it came with all the bolts and mounting hardware and there was no drilling needed.

One tip I will offer to anyone that is installing this hitch is yes it is the right hitch for your vehicle but might not appear so initially. Because if your vehicle has 1 tow hook instead of two in the rear some of the bolt holes are likely covered with stickers that match the color of the undercoating and are very hard to distinguish other than that little hang up it was a very easy install of a very good product.

My father plans to use it to tow a small utility trailer for doing yard work and sometimes his Harley Davidson motor cycle.

2009 Kia Sportage

Fits great on our 09 kia sportage. Pulls the dirtbike trailer very smoothly.

Install took a little while because I'm a perfectionist and wanted to zip tie the wires away from the exhaust. I needed a couple more zip ties than the wire kit came with. Drilled holes for the 4 pin plug mounting bracket (part # 18144) It looks great. Factory look and will keep the plug from dragging the ground.

Would buy again. Good quality

2008 Kia Sportage

The hitch is very well made, heavy duty and with a good protective finish on it. With the help of a friend, we easily worked it into place without lowering or removing the exhaust. This is a 2008 4 cyl Kia Sportage LX. It does not have the optional pre wired port to plug a trailer wire harness into. I chose the Hopkins # 48895 4 flat converter. It works with incandescent bulbs or leds. I mounted the module in the recess behind the left tail light. It has a 2.1 amp capacity. Suitable for vehicles with independent turn signal and brake lights.


New trailer hitch assembly fit right in place after removing the muffler. Once the hitch was installed it was easy to reinstall the muffler. The hitch fit just like it was a factory installed unit, close to the back bumper and there were no clearance concerns after installation.

I didn't see it when I ordered, but it would have been nice to have a section for trailer wiring harnesses. I know every vehicle can't be identified for a plug and play harness, but at least offer an installation kit, whether it be a 5 wire to 4 conversion or just a straight 4 wire connector on check out.

Other than that small miniscule item, it was a great purchase, shipping was fast and the client showed up well after the shipping arrived.

  • Should Trailer Hitch Capacity Or Vehicle Capacity Be Used On 2006 Hyundai Tucson
    Even though the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # 13526, you have on your 2006 Hyundai Tucson is rated for 3,500 lbs, you will be limited by the towing weight capacity of your vehicle at 2,000 lbs. When towing or attaching anything to a hitch, you always need to use the lowest rated component for capacities.

  • Could Trailer Hitch from 99' Dodge Durango Fit 2006 Hyundai Tucson
    For a 2006 Hyundai Tucson a hitch from a 1999 Dodge Durango would not work. You'd need to go with a hitch like the Curt # 13526 which is custom fit for your vehicle. Hitch fits are very specific and typically only fit a vehicle model for a few years before updates to the vehicle require a new fit so fits between vehicle manufacturers is incredibly rare.

    Curt Class III trailer hitch # 13526 is indeed a fit for your 2010 Kia Sportage V6. Class III hitches like this are great for towing and for hitch mounted accessories like bike racks and cargo carriers. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If...

  • 2009 Hyundai Tucson Towing Capacity and Hitch
    The Curt trailer hitch part # 13526 that you referenced does fit the 4 cylinder 2009 Hyundai Tucson that you have. This hitch has a capacity of 3,500 lbs trailer weight, but it looks like your Tucson is only rated to tow up to 1,000 lbs so that would be the figure you'd need to stay under. For trailer wiring you'd then want the Tekonsha kit part # 118397 as it's our most reliable option and doesn't require splicing to install.

You have 7 different hitch options for your Tuscon. I would recommend purchasing and installing a hitch with a 2 inch receiver opening over a smaller 1-1/4 inch hitch opening; the larger hitch will give you a lot more options for accessories.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver and Ball Mount for Rise Needed Without Bumper Fascia Contact

For your ball mount, I recommend the MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount # MT70068 to give you the bumper clearance and then recommend hitch ball # 63845 for a 2 inch ball or # 63847 for a 2-5/16 inch ball.

    That Malone bike rack MPG2124 really does have sort of a backwards lean doesn't it. I looked through the literature for the bike rack and there is nothing stating that you can't use an extension and since that is the only way the rack will clear the back of your 2005 Hyundai Tucson you would have to use an extension.

If your Electra's have fat bike tires you can change out the wheel cradles for fat bike wheel cradles # SA4419.
