2003 GMC Sonoma

Ordering - Simple, fast, informative easy to use website.

Shipping - Recieved a confirmation email right away. After that I received multiple order update emails and received the receiver hitch and associated items in just a few days after the order was placed. Only downside is packaging. The mounting plates on the receiver hitch that actually mount to the truck frame, poked out of the cardboard box and were scratched up. But it's a truck hitch after all.

Install - Perfect. I had a hard time deciding between this hitch, the Curt Round Tube Receiver Hitch C13132 and the Draw-Tite Receiver Hitch 75085. I can say that I would chose this one every time. Fit was perfect. No wiggle at all, even with all the bolts only in place without nuts yet. It is the strongest rated Hitch for the S-10 series truck.

I installed it on a 2003 GMC Sonoma with step bumper. 4.3l, automatic, 2x4. I plan to pull a small boat, 3x ATV trailer, utility trailer.

Very happy and overall satisfied customer. Would order again hands down and I without a doubt recommend it to you.

1999 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

For etrailer, shipping via UPS was fine with the box being slightly damaged, but the hitch itself was fine.

For curt, the bag of screws and washers was sealed, yet it was shorted one flat washer (item #5 FW12). How hard is it to get the correct amount of washers in a bag??? I guess I'll have to go out of my way to buy one freakin' washer! Also, the one sheet instructions are horrible and REALLY need to be improved.

Thank you for letting us know! I sent your information along to our customer service team and we should have that part sent out to you.

1996 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

Great product very satisfied. Delivery was fast 3 days. Heavy duty material. Fit right on my truck no problems at all. Took me 2 hrs. to install it that included getting all the tools set up and clean up after installation. I will definitely buy from etrailers again and I would recommend you do the same.

Receiver hitch has held up great still looks brand new. I use it twice and week for the last year sometimes more. Quality product and material definitely recommend.

2013 GMC Sonoma

I had installed a Curt hitch on my other vehicle in 2013 and still using it. When I got a '97 Sonoma I wanted to be able to pull my utility trailer with it too so I got another Curt from It was another easy install on the Sonoma, maybe 20-30 minutes with a buddy helping hold things. I could get good pictures where the hitch bolts to the frame but it was straight forward installing it.


Recieved my trailer hitch yesterday and the quality looks top notch.

2001 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

Excellent quality and construction (hefty!). Fit was right-on, but install took a little longer than hoped due to my working alone and in the driveway. Especially nice that the hitch itself arrives fully assembled. Highly recommended watching YouTube video before disassembly; all-in-all an "easy" bolt-on.


Received my package from UPS on time. The box was torn and the hitch was protruding but it was to be expected with a heavy item in cardboard packaging. The hitch, hardware, and wiring harness all in same package. Hitch fit perfectly. No drilling required. Took a little motivation to get the holes lined up and all the bolts in. Tight fit. No complaints here.


Part worked great really simple installation. Fast an friendly service. I would recommend e trailer to anyone


Functions as intended. Good price point.


I called etrailer with questions and they had the answers.received order within 3days,very fast what I wanted top quality,very happy. thank you Etrailer p.s. I WOULD ORDER FROM ETRAILER THEY HAVE THE ANSWERS ON THEIR PRODUCTS.


I would have liked more input. Terry was professional and efficient and friendly. I received the hitch as promised. Had it installed and am throughly


We are mechanics so the installation was super easy. It performs great and has plenty of room for the safety chains to hook up. The receiver has plenty of room to slide in and install the pin. I would highly recommend the Curt hitches.

This hitch is still performing flawlessly. We have had no problems at all towing a utility trailer with a Kubota tractor weighing total of 3,000. I plan to add electric brakes to my trailer very soon.
John D - 02/14/2020


The shipping box was in sad shape when it arrived but the receiver was not damaged at all. The fit was perfect and there was no drilling necessary, I found the front holes after I cleaned the dried mud off of the frame.The receiver is first quality, something you would expect for a product made in the USA. Could not be happier with either etrailer or the receiver, Brad

1999 GMC Sonoma

The price and product were outstanding. I was really surprised how quick I received the item and how well it worked. The price was way lower than other prices I got and I don't think you could get a better product. The video on youtube on how to install the hitch was a real help. I could not have put this on myself if not for the video. I can't say enough about this product and I am 100% satisfied and highly recommend this hitch to anyone.

great, works perfect

Installed with no trouble


Worked like a charm.


As I recall the delivery was quick and complete. The wiring was smooth too. However, I could not get the last bolt in and had to substitute a smaller size.
I pulled a trailer from VA to NH with no known issues.
Thanks for asking, Mike

One year and still working fine. I had an initial installation issue mating the hitch to the frame. But I got it with the help of a neighbor. I have purchased other products and would do so again. Tks for asking.

2001 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

I was complety satisfied with the service that Kevin D Had given me, as he was very helpful with product information. And , the cherry on the cake was the product - Strong , Neatly manufactured and fitted perfictly. Also It was delivered by UPS a day ahead of time making the installation the same evening
in 1 hour 15 min. I will be trailering my boat with it. Could'nt ask for better. Thank you etrailer , great job great product.

As expected, even better. I also got my brother in law interested as he will need a hitch once he buys a new 2020 Nissan Rogue .
Francis C - 07/10/2019


Came as expected. Fast shipping and was in good shape. Installation went well. Takes a little longer when you do it by yourself, but " got er done". Nice looking hitch. Should work well.

Worked great, used it help a friend move
William - 08/10/2019


thought it was a custom fit for my 1997 S10. the top of the hitch sits 21/2 inches below the bumper, not a good look. i'll have to live with

Thank you for your review. The hitch is designed for 1982 - 2004 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup with Factory Step Bumper. The hitch does attach a bit lower compare to other hitches to clear the bumper. Please take a look at the photos on the product page.
-- Etrailer Expert Heather A - 03/18/2021


Ordered the curt hitch for my 2000 S10. The directions kinda sucked but the hitch hides away very well behind the bumper. One hole didn’t line up like it was supposed to on the frame and I had to drill out out some. The wiring harness I got also worked great


My friend's told me you can't buy a class 3 hitch for a truck that's 32 years old.boy where they wrong,it wasn't covered in dust either it looks like it was just made.the package was well thought out also.its an awkward shape to try to carry but you guys came up with a clever way to pack it. The box had your name on it, so you all must have taken the time to think through the way to pack it so handlers don't get hurt and it arrived undamaged. KODOS.

2000 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

Nice hitch very well built. Fairly easy for an old man like me to mount by myself. I am
very satisfied with the price and customer service follow up. I also purchased the wire adapter for my S10 to replace the old one. This one had heavier wire than my old one. Excellent trailer wire adapter! That's about it.

2001 Dodge Journey

Will see how it fits. Package was all tore up UPS left it anyway. Both end brackets bent..... Looks like box was taped up at some point on it’s journey.

Need to figure out how to straighten.

Has to be a difficult part to ship, but there was no supporting material inside so it had no trouble pushing itself through the cardboard.

The mounting flanges on a trailer hitch are designed for straight line strength, not lateral strength. The flanges are actually designed to have some give in them, so they can flex along with the vehicle. If they get flexed during shipping, they can be easily bent back into place. As long as the powder coat didnt crack and there arent any cracks in the mounting flange itself, the hitch will work just fine after being bent back into place. Ill link you to a help article that shows a few different methods of manipulating the hitch back into place.
-- Etrailer Expert Mike L - 07/25/2018


Hitch is holding up quite nicely. Probably carry more than I should on my trailer, from time to time, and have had no issues with the hitch.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2001 Chevy S-10 with Factory Step Bumper
    For your 2001 Chevy S-10 with the factory step bumper what you would need is the Curt hitch part # C13021 which is a confirmed fit for your truck and it's configuration. 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 Curt Trailer Hitch C13021 Interfere with Spare Tire on a 2000 GMC Sonoma
    You will be able to keep the spare tire with Curt trailer hitch # C13021 installed on your 2000 GMC Sonoma. There is a note in the instructions, linked for reference, stating that some spare tires may need to be lowered and repositioned for hitch installation. It does not specify sizes though. Usually what this means is that spare will need to be pushed towards the front of the vehicle some. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2...

  • Will Curt Hitch C13021 fit 1999 Chevy S-10 Stepside?
    Curt hitch # C13021 will fit your 1999 Chevy S-10 stepside. If you are going to be towing you'd need 4-flat connector you would want to use T-One Wiring Harness # 118359. For a ball mount, I recommend checking out Ball Mount Kit # 989900, which may fulfill your towing needs in one tidy package; two ball mounts - one with a 3/4” rise or 2” drop and the other with a 2-3/4” rise or 4” drop - a 1-7/8” hitch ball, a 2” hitch ball and a pin and clip. In order to choose the correct ball mount,...

  • Compatibility of the Curt Class III Hitch # C13021 on a 1999 GMC Sonoma w/ Factory Step Bumper

This hitch is custom designed to fit your vehicle and install with no drilling necessary. If you looking to tow a trailer, then I recommend the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness, # C55359, if you do not already have a 4-way trailer connection.

    Thank you for the photo; it looks like your 1997 Chevy S-10 is the Sportside with non-towing bumper and the trailer hitch that fits is the Draw-Tite # 75085. This is a Class III hitch that is a complete bolt-on installation so no drilling into your truck's frame is going to be required. As for wiring to give you a 4-way connector and allow you to power your trailer's lights you need Wiring Harness # HM41115. I also recommend checking out Ball Mount Kit # 989900, which is for 2” hitches...

    If you take a look at the picture I have included the truck in it has a type of roll pan bumper. Essentially it is a bumper that matches the contours of the vehicle instead of protruding out like a regular step bumper. If your 1989 Chevy S-10 has a regular bumper then you can use Curt hitch # C13021. If it has a roll pan bumper then use # 13920.

  • How to Determine Which Trailer Hitch Receiver Will Fit 2003 Chevrolet S-10 with Aftermarket Bumper
    To determine if a trailer hitch receiver will fit on your 2003 Chevrolet S-10 that has an aftermarket bumper you'll have to do a little measuring. There are three Curt Class III trailer hitch receivers that may work for you. You'll need to measure from the mounting holes on your truck's frame to the underside of the bumper to see if there is enough clearance. The measurements of each hitch that you will at least need are: # 13920 - 2.353 inches # C13132- 8.32 inches # C13021- 10.20...

  • Recommended Class III Trailer Hitch for a 1992 Chevy S-10 Tahoe
    I recommend using the Curt Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13021 for your 1992 Chevy S-10 with the factory step bumper because it features a hidden crosstube and an extended receiver to make it more easily accessible for attaching a ball mount or accessory. No modification is necessary but you will need to temporarily remove your bumper/fascia to install this. If you let me know what you plan on using this trailer hitch for I can make additional recommendations for you.
