Curt Class I Drawbar - 5" Rise - 11-9/16" Long - 2,000 lbs - C45025

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (1872 Customer Reviews)

Corrosion-resistant ball mount is 11-9/16" long and fits 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" trailer hitch receivers. Ball mount can be used in the rise position only.


This drawbar was exactly what I needed with the 5" rise. I use it to tow my boat. My car is low to the ground so the rise was just what I needed. The drawbar is very durable as well. When I was out on my boat a hit and run was done on my trailer. The trailer was pushed into my car and both were moved about 3 feet forward. The drawbar didn't break in half. It was bent but it prevented any damage to the rear of my car because of the quality construction of the drawbar.


The C45025 provides the perfect extension and rise for my 3010 4WD Mule, allowing it to tow my wood splitter. The cargo bed can be raised to it's service (latched) position without the tailgate contacting the 2" ball I installed. This drawbar is made in the US of A, folks, of solid, not tubular, steel, and the fit and finish are excellent! Order a hitch pin, if you need one, as this bar does not come with one.


The Curt Class I Drawbar - 5" Rise - 11-9/16" Long is perfect for my 2013 Kia Soul. I needed the rise to level my boat trailer and the length got it back away from back of kia soul. Very nice drawbar.Kia soul tows my 14 ft boat very well with this setup. Etrailer is great to help you get the right parts,and very quick getting them to you


Exactly what I needed!!


Perfect for my KIA Soul with its low trailer hitch


This product is as advertised. Unfortunately I had to order it as a replacement for the draw bar I originally ordered because the original didn't have enough length to sufficiently clear the bumper. This draw bar clears the bumper with space to spare, and was the only option we could find with both the length and rise to fit my Mazda. Overall I am satisfied to have found a draw bar that would work for me, even if it took two tries.


I bought this hitch with the reciever for pulling my jon boat with my car . The 5 inch rise worked perfect for my . It seems strong and sturdy for what I am using it for . Perfect for pulling smaller trailers with a car.

After using the 5 inch rise for a year now, it works perfect for pulling my boat with my Prius. Definitely recommend this hitch.
Kenneth P - 05/20/2021


This Provide more than enough clearance from the bumper on my 2017 Ford Fiesta ST. Seems strong. Easy to insert/secure into my hitch.


I bought all the parts through eTrailer, and the people at there are great. But, I have been unlucky. After 10 months, my Draw bar cannot be separated from the receiver. I don't know why. While I have used it to tow a PWC a couple of dozen times, I haven't dunked the draw bar underwater but maybe a couple of times. I always wash everything and sprayed under my car. I brought it to a local shop. They hooked up a fork lift to apply a pulling force to the bar and banged it with a sledge hammer, but still could NOT separate it. I and it are stuck. My shin bones have paid the price a few times. Be careful.


Right price,
Quick service
Works perfect


Excellent Product just as described. It fits perfectly on my Toyota Corolla 2010. Perfect to Tow my jet ski.


Love Ordered two hitches one a class 1, for my bike rack the other a class 2 to tow a small utility trailer. Etrailer contacted me just to make sure I didn't make a mistake in ordering. Super!, Customer Service. The items came fast and was just as discribed. I've owned 2 jetski's, 2 pickups, 2 cars and thanks to Etrailer they have outfitted me with everything I needed to tow and haul with. I've told friends and they found items here that they couldn't find locally.


Keeps the trailer nice and level if you do some simple measuring. Took a bright yellow paint stick and wrote on it "CHAINS" so my son and I don't forget to hook up the safety chains.


This unit was used on a trike to clear the back end and correctly position at the ball height for a tent trailer. It was excellent! Great quality and delivered as advertised.

This hitch has performed flawlessly.
Franklin H - 05/05/2019


Made well , But very loose fit , there's a ton of play when inserted into the hitch , I could understand if it was two different makers, but there both Curtis products !!

There are tolerances for both the hitch receiver and the ball mount, so there often is some play between the hitch receiver and accessories. An anti-rattle device like the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061-125 is a great option to keep your ball mount tight inside your hitch receiver.
-- Etrailer Expert Victoria B - 04/29/2020


Hitch arrived fast and secure in nice packaging. The bolt holes lined up perfectly and was in installed in a matter of minutes using one ratcheting wrench. I can now fully utilize my Subaru WRX to tow and haul my toys. I stood on the hitch and bounced to check for flex, there was virtually none with my weight of 240lbs. Great product and company.


Fitment is good. Not great. Since the Curt receiver is for a Curt hitch I would hope for better tolerances. Makes noise when trailering due to movement in receiver even with good pin. Strong and easy to mount ball.


Exactly what I ordered. Video with dimensions was very helpful. Purchased for a 2007 Chevy HHR 2LT with a curt class I hitch. There is about 2-3in clearance between the rear bumper and the back of the ball mount.


fit to hidden hitch was a little snug, but a little white grease took car of that. I wish I could have found a 1 1/4 inch drawbar with a 7 inch rise but alas it was not to be found.


The product was exactly what I needed; but more importantly, the help that I received from Madison during the ordering process was fantastic.
She helped fill in the gaps of missing information that I had been provided by the trailer rental place who installed the hitch.
Thank you again for your great customer service!


Looks great and fits perfectly on my 2015 Sonata Sport


I just can't believe my order was here the next day. I ordered it in the late afternoon on Monday and it was here Tuesday before 3:00. I was in disbelief but ecstatic. It was exactly what I ordered. I built a tiny sleeper and am getting it ready to take camping. I will take pictures after i install the receiver, ball, and pin. I was worried I wouldnt get it before the weekend. Thank you etrailer. This was the 2nd time I've ordered from your company and I definately won't hesitate to order from you in the future and I will highly recommend you to my friends and colleagues.


The drawbar seems to have a little too much movement(play) within the hitch. I am hopeful that this additional play will not cause a premature failure of some sort. Overall I would rate the product fair to good because of these concerns.


Product is as described. Have yet to use but expect it to function as expected. Wish there was a larger rise available. 5 inches is just barely what I need. Also wish there was an adjustable 1.25 product liker there is with the 2.0 inch products.
It would have been nice if the product was packaged better. There was no padding in the box and the product broke through the box most likely because of product weight and mishandling by the common carrier. Luckily it did not fall out completely.


Great rise hitch which helped level out my utility trailer that I pull around. No rusting issues either.

  • Will the Curt Class I Drawbar - 5" Rise Clear My Bumper
    In order to confirm fit of the Curt Class I Drawbar part # C45025 on a vehicle with a recessed trailer hitch you just need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer edge of the bumper and make sure it's no more than 8". This one has a 5" rise so the distance from the ground to the top inside edge of the trailer hitch will need to be less than 5" from the distance from the ground to the bottom of the coupler on the trailer. The 2" Hitch Ball part # 19258 is compatible...

  • Correct Draw Bar for Curt Class I Receiver C45025 on 2012 VW Golf TDI
    The draw bar included with the hitch is part # C45016, which has a 2-5/8 inch rise, or 3-1/4 inch drop. Ideally, you want to tow the trailer so that it is as level as possible, but being within an inch and a half either way is close enough for government work. Keep in mind that hitch is designed to work best with a draw bar with the same drop as the C45016, and using a draw bar with a different rise or drop is not recommended. I will link you to our FAQ article that shows how to correctly...

  • Availability of a Long 1-1/4 inch Ball Mount
    The longest Class I ball mount we offer is the Curt Ball Mount part # C45025 which is 11-6/16 inches long. If you could use a Class II ball mount (also 1-1/4 inch) you could use the Curt Class II Draw Bar part # C45000 that measures 13-1/2 inches from the pin hole to the ball hole.

If this is the case, we actually have a longer ball mount available. That is the Curt Class II Drawbar # C45000. This mount measures 13-1/2" from center of hitch pin hole to center of ball hole.

The reason other shanks may have a different rise is because it may have a different Class rating. I also pulled this drawbar from our warehouse and made a short video and diagram for you.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2016 Toyota Corolla with Hidden Hitch
    When picking out a ball mount for a Class I hitch like the part # 60345 you have to go with the ball mount that is recommended for the hitch. If the one that came with this hitch doesn't have the right rise there's nothing I can safely recommend since Draw Tite states that the use of any other ball mount will void the warranty. You will have to use the part # 3593 that came with the hitch in the rise position. This will give you 2-1/8 inches of rise. For a 2 inch ball you would need the...

  • Recommended Ball Mount To Get 6" Of Rise For a 2015 Chrysler 200 Class I, 1-1/4" Receiver

To get slightly closer to your 6" rise you can use a Curt Class I Drawbar # C45025 with a Curt RockerBall Shock Absorbing 2" Hitch Ball # C94CR. The ball mount has a rise of 5" and the RockerBall sits 1-1/2" higher than a traditional 2" ball. As long as your trailer accepts a 2" ball this would give you...
