Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" - C11527

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (37 Customer Reviews)

Perfect for light-duty towing, this custom, vehicle trailer hitch receiver features fully welded, gloss powder coated steel construction. Drawbar sold separately.


The hitch was a decent price, came quickly, and installed rather easily.

I have to admit, I was watching the wrong video for the install of this. I was already prepping with steps that were not applicable. I did have some notes to add. I did not find I needed to expand the holes in the chassis for the bolts and spacers.

There are two things I need to emphasize is, you really really really need to grind down the sealant that is left over where the side mounting holes are. If you miss any you will find that the holes will not line up and at that point, you're going to need to remove the hitch from under the car, prep again, and repeat.

Secondly, I did not find anything obvious enough showing that the bolts in this kit come with two different thread spacings. I spent at least 15-30 minutes wondering why I couldn't screw them in until I finally looked at them and realized there is a difference. That may not be an issue for some of you that think of those things, they just all looked the same, same color, same length..etc.

I would like to note, the pricing on the website is good however, the total costs shipping wise ended up slightly more expensive than another site. I needed to use paypal so this worked better. I just hope for future reference eTrailer compares their pricing for themselves since, this experience was so good it would be a shape to lose a customer over $5.

All things considered I would still come back to etrailer again. Everything was as described, shipping was quick, customer service has been excellent, and they have quality videos on Youtube to understand how to install your hitch and electronic hardware specific for your vehicle.

Thank you for the follow-up Carol!


I've had several Curt hitches in the past and have always been very pleased. The video on etrailer's website on how to install it was very helpful. The hardware was very securely taped to the hitch, so even a large hole in the box didn't result in any missing parts. (Not likely that something is going to hurt that hunk of steel in a UPS truck.) I was especially pleased that the hardware bag included the proper fish wires for the job--it would have been tricky without them. etrailer prices are the best, and the hitches must be direct shipped from the factory based on how fast they arrive.

Im still 100 satisfied after a year. Its the best for attaching bike racks and for tying down the backs of canoes.

2015 Chevrolet Trax

Product was exactly as ordered.. Some damage to the shipping box, but not the actual hitch.


This kit had everything I needed, and the instructions guided me through a trouble-free installation. I am very happy with this purchase

Chevrolet Trax

This product could not have been any easier to install. I watched the installation video several times even before the hitch arrived so I had it in my head how things should go. I put the back end of my car (2019 Chevy Trax) up on my car ramps and went to work. I followed the instructions and it was like everything fell into place. Once I got the hitch up past the exhaust I could hold it up with my knee on one end and my hands on the other end. Got the screws started on each side on the bottom of the frame to hold it up and then the side bolts were a piece of cake. If you have a Trax like I do and need to haul small loads around, I highly recommend this product. It truly is a well designed custom fit product. I plan to purchase a 5 x 8 foot trailer with a fold down ramp that weighs 400 pounds so my pay loads will be around 800 pounds max. I think I'll nick name it "The Mini Hauler Express". No pictures because mine wouldn't be any better than the video.

2020 Chevrolet Trax

Everything was terrific. Delivery was fine. Installing was perfect. I installed on my 2020 Chevrolet Trax in less than an hour. Everything lined up perfect. I didn't even jack up the car. Otherwise I watched the tutorials. I saw where people say the bolts don't line up. I might suggest to not tighten all of them up before you get all of them started in place. If you need a receiver hitch this is a terrific place to get it. Looks great on the car. Extremely happy!


The hitch arrived quickly. We had it professionally installed so that we could mount a bike rack. It's working perfectly -- low profile but effective. eTrailer's website was super-helpful in steering me towards buying the correct hitch. Thank you!

2021 Chevrolet Trax

Site was very easy to navigate, shipping was quick and arrived in perfect condition.

Chevrolet Trax



The Hitch works great. I have hauled our boat several times, and no problems.

2019 Buick Encore

Product is very nice. Installation was a bit tricky as there is what appears to be some OEM fire retardant caulk that needs to be trimmed prior to bolting the vertical pieces unto the frame. My instructions didn't identify that and it made the install time frame a bit longer than anticipated. The install wasn't too difficult overall. I give the install 3 stars and the product 5 stars.


The install went great! Bike rack fits like a glove.

My only criticism is for the directions. I realize they are meant to be pretty universal however they were more complicated than they needed to be.

For my 2017 Chevy trax, there was no need to make holes bigger, only thing that needed to be done was to move the exhaust out of the way and cut a little bit of the plastic that was in the way.


Fit is perfect. Quality looks good. I'm 66 and I installed it in about an hour and a half. I am completely satisfied. This is the second hitch I have purchased from E Trailer. Very pleased.


It fit really good and has done a really good job


Good job. Received item in good shape and on time. Thank You


Easy to install and has worked great for us!!


Just what I wanted!


Very good product couldn’t be any happier ty all so much at etrailers


The product delivers as promised at a fraction of the cost for a welded on unit.

2016 Chevrolet Trax

Tim was very helpful with advising me what I would need to carry 2 bicycles on our 2016 Chevy Trax. I ordered what I would need and received them in 2 days. Everything was easy to put together and install and accomplished what I wanted to do. In the future I would not hesitate doing business with them again.

2014 Buick Encore

Excellent product and the delivery was on time.

Thank you for offering quality products.

2018 Chevrolet Trax

Fit was a little tight but got it installed with a little “elbow grease” and it works as expected.


Kaylyn R was unbelievable she really knew her products she truly is a great customer service rep.


Quick delivery. Product is as advertised. Fit perfectly with easy instructions.

  • Will the Curt Class I Trailer Hitch From a 2013 Buick Encore Fit a 2014 Buick Encore
    According to Curt, the manufacturer of the Curt Class I Trailer Hitch, # C11527, this trailer hitch will fit the 2013 and 2014 Buick Encore. Buick did not make any changes in the mounting points for the trailer hitch on the 2014 models.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Chevy Trax that Does Not Rattle on Exhaust
    For your 2018 Chevy Trax the Curt hitch part # C11527 that you referenced is a confirmed fit and was designed not to cause any interference with the exhaust so it would not touch the exhaust or rattle against it. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

  • Troubleshooting Curt Hitch for 2017 Chevy Trax with Exhaust System Contact
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11527 is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Chevy Trax. The issue you are facing is not out of the norm, but a replacement hitch is not needed. It is fairly common for there to be issues with contact between a muffler or exhaust pipe and the solution is simply to bend the hanger on the exhaust or install different length rubber isolators. The exhaust systems have metal hangers that fit the rubber isolator and sometimes either the isolator or the hanger is...

  • Hitch Receiver for a 2021 Chevy Trax
    The highest capacity hitch we have for your 2021 Chevy Trax is going to be the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver item # C11527 you were looking at. This hitch has a 200 lbs tongue weight. Meaning the weight of your scooter and carrier would need to weigh less than 200 lbs. You will also want to check with Chevy or refer to your owners manual to confirm your Trax's tongue weight capacity.

  • Available Trailer Hitches For 2016 Buick Encore
    The only trailer hitches available for your 2016 Encore are Class l and Class ll hitches like part # 36554 and part # C11527. The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 36554 is a Class ll and has the higher tongue weight and towing capacity than the Curt Class l hitch, part # C11527. Both hitches have a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. If you can let me know what you wish to use the trailer hitch for I will be glad to see if we can make some recommendations that will work for you.

  • DrawTite versus Curt Hitch for my 2018 Buick Encore
    Between the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 36554 and the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11527 I choose the DrawTite every time. It has the higher weight capacity at 300 lbs. of tongue weight versus the 200 lbs. of the Curt making it an ideal hitch to haul your bikes and bike rack.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Cargo Basket for 2021 Buick Encore
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11527 is a great option for a 2021 Buick Encore. It has a class I rating with 1-1/4" receiver tube opening. If you're looking for a cargo basket, I recommend the 19x47 Curt Cargo Carrier part # C18110. It comes with everything you need to secure it to the trailer hitch. Unfortunately, there are not really a ton of cargo basket options for 1-1/4" hitches but the above is one of our best and will work great for you.

  • Comparing the Performance of the Curt and Draw-Tite Class I Hitches on a 2017 Chevrolet Trax
    The Draw-Tite Class I, part # 36554 and the Curt Class I, part # C11527 really aren't stronger or weaker than each other, as the actual capacity will be determined by your vehicle. You can verify your vehicle's capacities in your owner's manual or with your manufacturer. That being said, if you have a greater than 250 pound capacity on your vehicle, I recommend going with the Draw-Tite hitch, as exceeding the hitch's rated capacity is going to risk damage to your vehicle's frame.

  • Trailer Hitch Options For 2015 Buick Encore To Replace Damaged Trailer Hitch
    I am sorry to hear about the trailer hitch you had on your 2015 Encore. I am curious though. Can you tell me what you had on the hitch at the time? If the hitch was installed properly and you were not carrying something that exceeded the weight capacity, the hitch should not have bent like that and certainly should not have hit the ground. Both of the Class l trailer hitches we offer for your Encore are round tube design as you said your hitch was. The Curt hitch # C11527 requires...

  • Trailer Hitch and Easy to Install Bike Rack for 2015 Buick Encore
    You are correct that the only size trailer hitch receiver that fits your 2015 Buick Encore is 1-1/4 inches, and for a bike rack the one I strongly recommend is the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 36554. The reason for that is this is a Class II hitch, which means you can use any bike rack that fits a 1-1/4 inch receiver. The other hitch that fits a 2015 Buick Encore is the Curt # C11527 is a Class I hitch and you would be limited to using only Class I compatible bike racks, of which...

  • Will the Available Trailer Hitches for 2016 Buick Encore Also Fit on AWD Models of the 2016 Encore
    Yes. The Curt # C11527 is also a fit for the AWD versions of the 2016 Buick Encore. You've made a good choice with the Curt hitch, since their powder coating tends to be a little bit more durable than the other available hitches for your Encore so it will hold up to some of the nicks in the coating that can occur on these hitches. That's ultimately going to help limit corrosion and make sure that your hitch lasts for as long as it's on your vehicle. If you're going to be towing with your...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for Carrying Bike Rack on 2020 Chevy Trax
    The Curt Class I hitch that you'd looked at, part # C11527 can either be used for light duty towing or for carrying a hitch mounted accessory like a bike rack or a cargo carrying tray, so this hitch is exactly what you'd need to carry a bike rack. The hitch uses a 1-1/4 inch receiver, so you'll want to choose a bike rack that's compatible with a Class I hitch. The best rack for you will depend a lot on the type of bike, but a platform style rack like the Swagman # S64670 XTC2 (which...

  • Largest Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2014 Buick Encore
    Though there is not a trailer hitch with a 2" receiver for your 2014 Buick Encore, there is a Class II, 1-1/4" hitch, the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 36554. The fact it is a Class II is important because it will allow you the use of more accessories and has a larger tongue weight capacity (350 lbs) and towing capacity (3,500 lbs) than the other hitch that fits your car, the Class I Curt Trailer Hitch # C11527.

    For a trailer hitch, I'd recommend the Curt Class I hitch, part # C11527.

You can take a look at those and likely get a good idea if the install is something you'd be comfortable doing yourself.

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2015 Buick Encore
    The wiring for a 2015 Buick Encore is # C56216 and won't be an included item with the Curt Class-I trailer hitch # C11527. The reason wiring harnesses do not come with the hitch is because some vehicles already have a trailer wiring harness so we make them available separately. The hitch # C11527 comes with a complete hardware kit and instructions. If you happen to need a ball mount and hitch ball, I recommend ball mount # C45520 and 2 inch hitch ball # C40018 or a 1-7/8 inch ball # C40001....

  • Do Trailer Hitch Receivers for 2017 Chevrolet Trax Include a Wiring Harness
    We do have two trailer hitch receivers to fit your 2017 Chevrolet Trax: a Curt # C11527 and a Draw-Tite # 36554. Neither of them include a wiring harness. As of right now we only carry one wiring harness for your Trax, the Tekonsha # 118751. It plugs into a factory connector that's in your rear cargo area under the floor cover and some interior paneling. Then you'll need to run a wire to the Trax's battery through the included fuse holder. The fuse is included as well. This harness...
