Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (85 Customer Reviews)

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


Fairly easy to install (As long as you have all the right tools). The reason I got this hitch for my car was So I can have a bike rack on the outside of my car, and it serves that purpose well.


Excellent solid product. Clear installation instructions, which went relatively smoothly. I'm a relative novice, although handy, and took a little over an hour.



Still outstanding! Solid product that I highly recommend. Would purchase again in a heartbeat.

2014 Ford Focus

Well designed and installation worked perfectly, as shown in the instructions. Instruction clarity could be improved by providing them in color.
Packaging is a failure! Box was received with a big hole in the side and the hitch was sticking out of the box about two feet. Luckily there was no damage to the hitch.



Hitch is perfect! Performing without any problems and still looks like new!

@Mark We're glad you're happy with it, thanks!


Just received this hitch, and it looks great. Will be installing it tomorrow morning. Watched the install video, seems pretty straightforward and relatively simple.

2014 Ford Focus

Fairly easy to install, even by myself. Yup, no help needed. I used jack stands to hold the hitch, and the car was only about 3" off the ground. [I have ramps made from 2X lumber.] It worked well. The only issue was a slight misalignment when initially mounting the hitch with M8 bolts to mark the holes for drilling the 15/32 hole. I had to use a drift pin to get the last M8 bolt in. It was only off by a hair, it was no big deal.
It was very easy to mark & drill the 15/32 holes. The fish wire method works great to get the spacers & carriage bolts fished in. Only a small amount needed to be ground around the access hole. I was a bit concerned about pushing the carriage bolts back through the holes when raising the hitch again. But it was no problem, hitch went in easily.
Torqued all the fasteners and double checked them again. All-in-all it took about 90 minutes doing it alone. I'm sure it could have taken about half the time with help. Shipping was fast and free. I plan to use the hitch with a bike rack, not towing.

Still working great after 1 year


Easy installation, excellent mounting instructions, perfect fit, came with all attaching hardware, looks great. I also bought wiring kit, easy installation, great mounting instructions, perfect fit, also came with all attaching hardware, works perfectly! Excellent product, great price, super fast shipping, wonderful communications!

William J.


All of the products are working as advertised. Had no problems with installation and they all are still working perfectly! Thanks for having such great products and such great prices!Happy New Year !!!!


It has been working as intended, I carry all my 3 bicycles on the trailer hitch with a thule bike rack.


Great product. Simple instructions. I drilled 2 holes and easily secured with 6 fasteners. Solid mounting and looks clean.



Your products I purchased from you were a great fit and great product. Ive told people about your products and will continue to do business with you.

2012 Ford Focus

Easy to install on a 2012 Ford Focus. Everything was included. Took about 2 hours total. After one year, still working great.

Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Fast delivery, and a fairly easy installation. The product is very well engineered and the welds are great. I towed a 1500 pound trailer for over 600 miles, and had no issues whatsoever. Thanks for a reasonably priced, high quality product!


Seems like it's going to work great upon installation. Simple to mount and attach bike rack to. Highly recommend.

2013 Ford Focus

Just finished installing the hitch receiver and it was really simple and it looks great!

2012 Ford Focus

My hitch and wiring adapter arrived promptly and in good condition. The installation of the hitch went smoothly and with no unexpected surprises. The installation of the wiring adapter was easier than the instructiions indicated, as there was a twelve volt power source right next to the driver side tail light assembly, eliminating the need to run a power wire to the battery in the front of the car. This was an install on a 2012 Ford Focus 5 door



thanks for writing the review. Were there mounting holes already, or did you have to drill them?Thanks!

Patrick B.


There are a total of 6 attachment points. 4 of them are pre-existing weld nuts in the frame that the hardware just threads into. There will be one hole, on each frame rail, that will need to be drilled. Check out the instructions link on the page for more information on the drilling, specifically Step 2.


your service was excellent. I called in my order as i did not have a secure internet site to give credit card info. right from first contact, to shipping to actually receiving my order everything was as stated it would be. I knew exactly what day the order was to arrive. I live in Canada and the same parts would have cost me more than double this amount. With price, free shipping and excellent service. What more could you ask for. I have and will keeping letting friends know what a great experience this was
. A big thanks to Steven C for all your help.

the trailer hitch and wiring hasrness worked perfectly. it looked like it was factory installed. we have since sold that vehicle.


This company is terrible. I recently ordered a tow hitch from them and after two weeks it still was not shipped. I called them and they said they didn’t ship my hitch because it was behind too much other stuff in their warehouse and I would have to wait until it was more accessible. Total B.S. I will never order anything from this company ever again.

Oh no, Im sorry for your frustrating experience with etrailer. It sounds like you caught us during our warehouse expansion. We have since doubled our warehouse space to avoid this type of situation.


The receiver was straightforward to install. Often aftermarket products don't even fit the vehicle it was designed for, no a problem here. I would recommend some mechanical inclination for the installer, or atleast some thoughtful research and a bit of confidence. Be sure to read the description, directions, and know what your vehicle is capable of. It was installed with just one person. Considering I have a compact car, I need to be mindful of loading/weight of my trailer (it is a small 3.5'x5') and speed/distance traveled, but it has taken the place of a truck for 95% of my needs. Customer service is very comprehensive-- they even send you a one year follow-up. It is everything that it promises to be. Highly recommend.

2015 Ford Fusion

Very fast delivery. I self installed using the instructions furnished and the very informative online video. I am 80 years old and did the installation alone using ramps to get under my car. Since I have had two rotator cuff surgeries, I needed help to lift the hitch into place. I used a floor jack and balanced the hitch on the lift plate of the jack and secured it with a block of wood and bungee cord to secure it. Every thing went well and the hitch looks great. This is the second hitch I have installed using ETRAILER instructions. My previous hitch was for a 2015 Ford Fusion and it also worked as expected. I enjoy dealing with ETRAILER.


Fits my make and model. Ford Focus 18’. Feels snug and I’ve had no issues using it with my bike hitch. The torque spec are completely wrong and I sheared a bolt during installation using a torque wrench… so ignore the torque specs and just tighten till it feels secure.

Dodge Grand Caravan

I am very pleased with the hitch and ease of installation. To date, I have installed hitches on 5 vehicles for myself, my wife and daughter, including a Dodge pick-up and Caravan, Nissan Versa, Dodge Dart, and now this Ford Focus. We use the hitches mostly for hitch-mounted bike racks. Installing this hitch on my Ford Focus was one of the easier installations. The only problem I encountered was the bolt head was just slightly too big in diameter to fit into the access hole on the vehicle frame, so I had to grind about 1/16 inch off one side of the bolt head with a bench grinder to enable it to fit through the access hole. I have purchased all of these hitches from and I have always been 100% satisfied with their product, free delivery, and installation instructions. I wouldn't buy a trailer hitch anywhere else!


To be honest it has not been used yet I bought it for a bike rack and a little bit of rear end collision protection. She's been ill and drives on I70 almost every day.No rust on it yet!


Hitch was well constructed and finished.
was quick and easy because everything fit perfectly. It will be used for pulling a small trailer, mounting a bike rack and mounting a step with light mainly for appearance when not towing or packing bikes.

2015 Ford Focus

I was impressed with how easy it was to install. It really did only take 20 minutes. I did have a dremel to enlarge the hole and I good uni bit. I am using the hitch for my bike rack and it is working great. Please consider a 2 in receiver option so I have more bike rack choices. I bought this hitch cause it was made in the USA. Thanks Curt for building your products here!

2012 Ford Focus

Directions that were supplied are OK but it was the YouTube video that made the installation much easier. I installed this hitch by myself using ramps. It would have been much easier with another set of hands but I just used blocks of wood to hold up one side while I worked on the other side. Highly recommend you look at the video first.

2013 Ford Focus

Overall, the hitch was easy to install. I did have a slight problem enlarging the access holes as it shows in the installation video, using the two steel blocks and a prybar. Other than that, smooth sailing. The hitch installation is clean and is almost completely hidden. Very happy with everything.

Ford Focus

Still holds up great after a year (and a Michigan winter). I only use the hitch on my Ford Focus for a bike rack. Super easy to install. No special equipment required. Maybe some patience if you don't have floor jacks.

  • What Bike Rack do You Recommend for My 60-Pound E-Bike on My 2013 Ford Focus?
    I have a great solution for you for a bike rack with a ramp. Unfortunately, Saris does not make a ramp for the Saris MTY Bike Rack SA4031. We also do not have a bike rack that has a ramp for a single bike. With that being said, we do have a 2-bike option that comes with a ramp. For that route, I recommend the Yakima OnRamp # Y96FR (for 1-1/4" hitches) or the # Y36FR (for 2-inch hitches). The great thing about the OnRamp in addition to the included ramp is that you will not have to purchase...

    All Class I hitches offered for your 2014 Ford Focus SE Hatchback are a light-duty type that offer the same 200-lb tongue weight capacity, but as you note there are some differences between them that may help guide your choice for your cargo basket application. The link provided will let you see all three. The variations in construction do not result in different weight ratings so I would not be concerned about the presence or absence of the collar.

If you're determined to use a Class II bike rack with this Curt hitch, it is possible. Curt hitches do not come with the weld stop inside the receiver tube that is otherwise typical of Class I hitches, which...

  • Can Towing and Flat Towing Harness be Combined on 2018 Ford Focus?
    No, you would not be able to somehow combine the two wiring harnesses to use with your 2018 Ford Focus, they are for separate applications and need to be treated as such. Wiring Harness # 118674 will be what you need to install for a 4-flat to tow with hitch # C11158 and Roadmaster Wiring Kit # RM-154 should be installed for flat towing, but there cannot and should not be a combination of the two.

  • What is the Difference Between a Class I and Class II Hitch?
    Structurally, a class II trailer hitch is designed to hold a bit more weight than a class I. This is because the materials that compose a class II hitch are stronger. All class I and class II hitches have the same 1-1/4 inch receiver opening which are compatible with 1-1/4 inch accessories. I went ahead and attached a diagram that shows the typical weight capacity differences between class I and class II hitches. For your 2018 Ford Focus Sedan, we only carry class I hitches.

  • Ground Clearance When Installing Curt C11158 Trailer Hitch on 2018 Ford Focus
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11158 is going to sit right up against the bottom of the bumper fascia on your 2018 Ford Focus hatchback so it's not going to affect ground clearance too much. This Class I hitch features a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds and a towing weight limit of 2,000 pounds. I highly recommend also checking your copy of the owner's manual to verify the vehicle's limits, as you will need to adhere to those if they are lower. I have attached an installation...

    I do have options for you, but they currently only offer a 1-1/4" trailer hitch receiver for your 2017 Ford Focus. For this, I recommend using the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11158 which is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver tube opening. In order to use a cargo carrier with a 2" shank you would also need an adapter like part # HTAD. However, using an adapter will reduce your hitch's weight capacity by 50 percent. You will also need to take into consideration the vehicles tongue...

  • Hitch and Trailer Wiring Fit for a 2016 Ford Focus
    For your 2016 Ford Focus there are only Class I hitches available like the part # C11158 which would not have the needed capacity to carry a wheelchair/scooter carrier. You could use a small trailer with this hitch if you had to find a way to use this vehicle for transporting the chair though. You would need the ball mount # 3593, ball mount # 19258 for a 2 inch ball, # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch ball, and for trailer wiring part # 118548.

For a hitch that fits the sedan or regular hatchback I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11158. If you have the hatchback ST then you would need the # C11431. Both of these are Class I hitches with a 1-1/4" receiver. I'm assuming you want to use the hitch for a bike rack. The Inno # INH120 you were looking at is not compatible with a Class I hitch.
