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


The entire 'etrailer' experience was GREAT.
selected the proper product, read previous customer reviews, and placed the order. The hitch arrived in a few days.
Five bolts and 12 minutes later, the unit was installed on my 2020 Nissan Murano, WITHOUT any special tools, additional labor, or modifications.
I'm 70 years old and did this in my own garage.
Completely satisfied 'etrailer'customer.

The trailer hitch receiver is as if it were a factory-installed item. It is as advertised... Quality and fitment are terrific.
Barry F - 04/27/2021


Thankfully previous reviews and information on the etrailer site were available for assistance. I needed to utilize a suggestion to expand the hitch receiver utilizing a 2x4 and car jack in order to align one of the holes. What started as a struggle became rather simple with the information found. The receiver was a perfect fit and has been a great accessory to our 2017 Nissan Murano.

2016 Nissan Murano

Came packed well. It took about 30 minutes to install. I used a couple of jack stands to hold it and place and zipped in the bolts with my impact gun(with an 80 ft-lbs torque rod on it) and then broke out the actual torque wrench to get it to 86 ft-lbs. I did have to hit the welded nuts with WD-40 because they were exposed but definitely a nice product and easy install.

No problems! Still works great!
Peter - 05/14/2022


It was a very easy installation. The price was great for the quality of the hitch. I bought this for a bike rack but is strong enough for small trailer. I am impressed!


Installed the receiver and harness connector today by myself and it was so easy. Took 1 hour to do both. No problems getting the receiver in place. I didn’t have to jack up the vehicle, there was enough room to just lay on a blanket and get to work. The harness for trailer lights is just like the videos on this site, plug and play. The only minor issue was when replacing the fuse in the engine bay from an installed 30 amp to a 15 amp that was supplied the 30 amp fuse was different from the included one that came with the harness. The fuse from entrailer was longer where it plugs in. Thanks eTrailer, love your products and instructions.

2017 Nissan Murano

Products fits perfectly easy to install Great installation Videos for hitch and wiring @017 Nissan Murano Platinum Didnt have to lift the Suv up 2 people install trailer hitch 10minutes Wiring kit 20 minutes Perfect Fast shipping Thank you George


Excellent design and workmanship. The instructions were easy to follow and right on the money. The only issue I had was figuring out how to mount a bracket for the light receptacle since I wanted a permanent installation. It was difficult to locate the location, drill it and lock it in place. Other than that it works great.

2018 Nissan Murano

Preferred this hitch over the other two for our Nissan Murano because the slant of the ends of the horizontal piece makes the hitch less visible. Purchased it for use with a hitch mounted 4-bike bicycle rack, so no electrical wiring was needed. Very easy to install.

2020 Nissan Murano

Easy as can be. Even in freezing temps, had it on in less then 10 minutes. Took longer to get warm after the install then install the hitch.
Fit and finish on our 2020 Nissan Murano was spot on. Design could not have been better. Fit follows the lines of the body panels.

Power coat on hitch is nice. No weld splatter or other blemishes on it. Plus at a price that can't be beat.

Best part rear gate still works hands free. Just kick to the side of the sq tube and up it does.

Still works great!
Pete K - 12/26/2021


The hitch is working great! I needed to get a converter because I had a bike rack to fit. Couldn’t be happier

2018 Nissan Murano

2018 Nissan Murano platinum WITH automatic hatch lift gate kick sensor. Installing this tow hitch receiver DOES cover the kick sensor to open the hatch, making the senor inoperable. I called Nissan to ask what I need to do to have both features operable and it’s roughly $1750 USD (The kick sensor and harness has to be replaced/moved (Part was $600 +labor)). I read every Nissan blog that says the sensor still works by kicking in various areas and I didn’t come to that conclusion. Otherwise, if your Murano isn’t equipped with this kick feature, the receiver is a great addition! I am NOT a mechanic nor do I have expensive tools. This install was extremely easy to install with two people (one to hold the hitch and the other to place screws). Took 30 mins to complete. The box was highly damaged when it arrived and two sections of the part was 100% exposed to potential shipping damages but fedex treated the package nicely, so no major scratches. I’m excited to ride my bike again, thank you etrailer!!

2022 Nissan Murano

This hitch was easy to install I am a very happy camper thank you etrailer


This hitch fit like a glove. Very easy to install. It took me about 15 minutes to install it, alone. Very good, very well engineered product


Easy installation. Great for hauling bikes etc. Cosmetically hitch looks great with no rust

2016 Nissan Murano

Installation was a breeze and it has performed well

Doing well. Not difficult to attach. I use it to carry my wifes electric scooter
David - 05/14/2022


The hitch arrived on time and in perfect condition. Install time took about 30 minutes and fit perfectly!


Arrived on time, very good instructions, only problem was my suv mounting holes needed to be chased with a tap. Installation after that was easy. Have rented a trailer twice to move my motorcycle. I would use etrailer again if I need to.

2018 Nissan Murano

The trailer hitch is a perfect fit and was easy to install. The wiring harness was also easy to install after watching the installation video on e-trailers web site. Thanks


Great fit and easy installation except for the rust in my cars frame which after I found the correct tap tread was quickly fixed.


The hitch reviewed on line and then purchased worked out great. It was made for my Nissan Murano, and installed all by myself in 30 minutes.

The bike rack I also purchased fit the hitch with all the vehicle clearances I needed.

Very happy.

2016 Nissan Murano

Very pleased with this hitch. Watched your videos on selection and installation and found those to be very helpful. Installation for me on my 2016 Murano Platinum was a breeze. I used a furniture dolly and blocks of wood to roll it under the car and hold it in place while I bolted her in. Looks real nice. Will use this primarily for recreation not towing.
Great Price and Fast shipping, Thanks, JJ

2020 Nissan Murano

What a great product. Online videos were a great educational tool. I am 72 and my wife is 70. With the use of car ramps, we installed the hitch in about 30 minutes. Extremely pleased at how it looks. Thank you for a wonderful product.

2016 Nissan Murano

The product appears high quality and it took me less than 30 minutes to attach it to my vehicle. Directions were great and all parts fit perfectly. Great product!!!


Exact fit and easy installation!

2018 Nissan Murano

Easy install and great product. Just needed an extra hand to start with mounting but all was very good! Wiring was also very easy to install.
Thanks etrailer!

  • Will Draw Tite Hitch for 2019 Nissan Murano Allow Hands Free Lift Gate to Function
    That's a bummer to hear that your hitch interfered with the hands free lift gate. When we installed the Draw Tite hitch part # 75952 on a 2019 Nissan Murano we were able to still trigger the lift gate by kicking to either side of the hitch opening. If you haven't tried that yet I would see if that works before buying a new hitch and sensor. As far as the new sensor working with the Draw Tite us and the dealers can't really say for sure since neither of us have tested that combination of...

  • Will Installing Trailer Hitch on 2020 Nissan Murano Keep Hands Free Liftgate From Working
    This question actually comes up quite a bit. The hitch receiver tube and safety chain plate will block the sensors located under the rear bumper in the center. However, the sensors further to the right or left will still function and allow you to utilize the hands-free feature as shown in the provided photo. If you click the provided link, you can see a video showing the hitch being installed.

  • Will Curt Class III Hitch For 2020 Nissan Murano Interfere With Hands Free Liftgate
    Great news Pete. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13205 for the 2020 Nissan Murano will only interfere with the center sensor on your bumper for the hands free lift gate feature. The sensors on either side of the hitch will still operate the hands free lift gate feature. I have attached an installation video for your reference.

  • Does Curt Hitch for 2019 Nissan Murano Affect Hands Free Liftgate
    The Curt hitch part # C13205 that fits your 2019 Nissan Murano will not interfere with the hands free liftgate feature of your vehicle. At worst you'd have to just kick to the side of the hitch opening but we and Curt have not had any complaints about the feature being lost or affected.

  • Does Curt Trailer Hitch C13205 Fit 2015 Nissan Murano AWD
    I checked with Curt just now and they list the # C13205 as a fit for all models of the 2015 Nissan Murano including the all wheel drive models so it will fit and work well for you. If you check out the picture I attached you can see the hitch installed on a similar Murano and also that there's an AWD badge on the vehicle to show that it fits this model for sure. I also attached an install video for more info as well.

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch # C13205 Affect Liftgate Sensor on a 2018 Nissan Murano
    Typically when a trailer hitch is installed on a vehicle with the automatic liftgate sensor it does not disable the sensor. It does get in the way, but you can generally still activate the liftgate by kicking to the left or right of the receiver. This is the same case for the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13205 on your 2018 Nissan Murano. I have attached an installation video of this trailer hitch on a 2017 Murano for you to reference as well. If you let me know what you will be using...

  • Availability of Concealed Hitch for 2017.5 Nissan Murano
    There are only two hitches which will fit your 2017.5 Nissan Murano, the Curt # C13205 and Draw-Tite # 75952. Though neither hitch is going to be concealed, they are both underneath the bumper and are by no means the first thing that will be noticeable on your Murano. Of the two hitches, I strongly recommend the Draw-Tite # 75952 because the Curt hitch requires the use of stabilizing straps with a bike rack in order to keep the warranty valid, while the Draw-Tite does not.

  • Can Trailer Hitch be Used on Vehicles with Factory Hitch
    Yes, some factory trailer hitches are welded onto vehicles, which is likely the case with your 2015 Nissan Murano. We don't have any type of specific list of vehicles with welded-on hitches but it unfortunately sounds like this is what is happening for you. In regards to fit, aftermarket hitches such as the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75952 and Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13205 which fit your '15 Murano are designed to fit vehicles that do not already have a factory...

    We can definitely help you with that! I can certainly understand what you have going on, I've recently downsized vehicles myself and it is a struggle! For a hitch I'd recommend the Curt Class III receiver hitch, part # C13205. Curt makes a durable, high quality product at a reasonable price point. For the cargo carrier, I'd recommend another Curt product, their 23x60 folding cargo carrier, part # C18151. This carrier has a couple of features I really like, like the carrier can also fold...

  • How to Transport a 500-LB Motorcycle with a 2020 Nissan Murano
    I have a possible solution for you. It looks like neither your Curt Class III, part # C13205, nor your vehicle are able to support that kind of tongue weight. Your best bet is to use a motorcycle trailer which you can find online. For most of these, you will need some wiring attached to your 2020 Nissan Murano to power the lights. I recommend the Curt T-Connector, part # C56267. It includes a tail light converter to ensure that your vehicle's wiring matches the one from your motorcycle...

  • Comparing Curt and Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitches for the 2015 Nissan Murano
    Curt, the manufacturer, has determined that some of their hitches should be used with stabilization strap # 18050 when using a bike rack or cargo carrier. This is a requirement from Curt for their warranty. Like you said Hidden Hitch does not have this requirement though you could still use the strap if you wanted. The strap relieves some of the stress on the hitch. If you want to avoid using the strap then I recommend going with Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75952. I have linked a video showing...

  • Is a Square Tube or Round Tube Trailer Hitch Stronger
    Technically speaking a square tube hitch has less chance of twisting than a round tube. This is why all of the heavier rated hitches for large trucks are squre. With that being said either style is designed and tested to meet certain specifications and rated as such. So regardless of which you're using as long as you stay within its specifications the hitch should handle the load. For your 2018 Nissan Murano both hitches are round tube hitches; Curt # C13205 and Draw-Tite # 75952. ...

    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13205 is a confirmed fit for your new 2021 Nissan Murano. If your new Murano has the tie down brackets they will be removed and they are not able to be used. I recommend using the Replacement Hardware Kit for Trailer Hitches # RHK to replace the hardware on your hitch with new bolts.
