Rugged, Matte Black Finish

The sturdy steel construction is protected with a matte black finish for added durability. This unique powder coating gives etrailer hitches a carbide-like appearance and a rugged look that sets them apart from traditional glossy hitches. In addition to being rust and corrosion resistant, the tough matte coating hides dirt, scuffs, and dings better than a glossy finish.

Fit perfectly once I cleaned out the mounting threads on my car ;) And I didn't have to move the muffler at all. Thanks so much!


I think the product was very good but the install was horrible. After confirming the right hitch receiver for my year, make and model car... it seemed like it wasn't quite right. I brought my car and the hitch to a very experienced auto mechanic, who has installed many hitches before. After trying to get the hitch installed, he needed to saw off a small steel piece under my car to even get the hitch to line up properly on the sides. After it was lined up, there was a 4" gap between the underside of the car and the hitch. We had to buy 4" bolts and spacers for the hitch to be mounted flush with the car so there would be no give. With the 4" difference between the car and hitch and the 4" bolts and spacers, the hitch rests on my exhaust pipe. My very quiet car that was so quiet you couldn't even tell it was running... is now rumbling loud with the hitch installation rubbing on the tailpipe. I am sad and frustrated with this experience, as it was supposed to be easy installation and a better way for me to transport my bicycle. Now all I think about is the installation and my loud car.

It is surprising that you had this experience with the hitch. Would you be able to confirm the year, make, and model of the vehicle? Can you send pictures of how it looks installed.


This hitch receiver hitch fit our SUV perfectly. It is a little snug when getting over the muffler and a piece of the rear bumper needs to be bent out of the way, but it is plastic and will snap right back into shape. I'd recommend cleaning out the threads of the frame before trying to install his as ours was full of several years of rust and road debris. Guess we should have opted for that true coat. It is a nice low profile hitch that works well for smaller loads, like a bike rack.


The hitch fits nicely on my Sportage. Watching the video to install it helped a lot! Shipped to Canada in only 4 days.


I've only needed to use it a few times for this little SUV, but it holds up my little camper just fine.


Super fast shipping. Ready to install.


same as before just great works well no bad review here


Description was perfect - quality good and did the job it was intended for.


Perfect fit, good quality

Piece of cake install. 76 years old and did it right my myself.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For A 2008 Subaru Impreza
    For your 2008 Subaru Impreza, I recommend the EcoHitch Class 2 hitch # 306-X7261. I prefer this hitch over the others we offer, because it has the highest tongue weight capacity at 300 lbs. With a motorcycle carrier like the one you are describing, I think the additional capacity will be key. It is also the only hitch we offer for your vehicle that has a 2" receiver. So you will have no trouble finding compatible accessories. This hitch also features a removable receiver, so it will be...

  • Trailer Hitch For A 2004 Mercedes-Benz E320 Station Wagon
    The correct Trailer Hitch For The 2004 Mercedes-Benz E320 4x4 Station Wagon is the Curt Class 1 Hitch # C11701. We have checked with Curt in the past and confirmed that this hitch will fit the E320 Station Wagon as well as the Sedan. At this time the Curt hitch is the only one available for your vehicle. This hitch has a standard 1-1/4" receiver, so you will no trouble finding compatible accessories like a bike rack or cargo basket. We offer a lot of great options along these lines like...

  • Is There a 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver Which Fits a 2021 Hyundai Sonata Limited?
    We only have the Draw-Tite # DT74MR and Curt # C23HR trailer hitch receivers which will fit your 2021 Hyundai Sonata Limited. Both of these are 1-1/4" receivers as we do not have a 2" option like our etrailer # e54KR receiver you found which fits a 2011-2015 Kia Sportage and 2010-2015 Hyundai Tucson. We do have an Adapter # HT5R with a 5" rise built in that will allow you to use certain 2" hitch mounted accessories.

  • Flat Towing Components Needed For A 1984 Toyota FJ Land Cruiser
    Hey CJ, In order for you to use a tow bar you'd need a baseplate for the FJ or a for the front bumper of the FJ to have D-Rings and be rated to tow from. Since there isn't a baseplate available you'd need to go with the D-Ring option. Roadmaster offers D-Ring adapters (3/4" thick D-Rings # RM-035 or 1" # RM-035-1) for their tow bars that could go with the Falcon All-Terrain tow bar # RM-522. You'll also need some safety cables # RM-643 and some tow lights # RM-2120 to remain street legal....

  • Stuck Exhaust Hanger Bolts Solution for a 2015 Ford Explorer
    Mike, I wouldn't say it's common, but given the car's age It's totally in the realm of possibility. What I would do is try and spray some lubricating spray and let it set for about 5-10 minutes then try using your air impact again and see if that helps any. If not, your best bet would be to take it to a shop and have them apply heat to remove the stuck bolts. If you have any other questions feel free to let me know below and I'd be happy to help.

  • Is There A Trailer Hitch Available For A 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQE
    Hi Kevin, The manufacturers we offer unfortunately do not have a trailer hitch confirmed to fit your EQE so the next option for hauling a bike rack would be to go with a roof rack system. There should be some fixed mounting points in your roof that you can use to attach the following roof rack components: Thule Fit Kit # TH53EE Evo Fixpoint Feet for Thule Evo Crossbars # TH49SC Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars # TH711420 After installed you can then mount a rack like the Yakima FrontLoader...

  • Is there a 2 Inch Hitch for a 2021 Hyundai Sonata?
    No, it will not. I checked with all of our vendors, and the only hitches available for the 2021 Hyundai Sonata are 1-1/4". Hyundai didn't offer a 2" as a factory option either due to the small size and weight capacity of the car. Out of the two hitches available, I recommend the Curt item # C23HR because it has a better price. Both it and the Draw-Tite item # DT74MR are class I 1-1/4" hitches. They are rated for 200 lbs of tongue weight, however you will want to verify with your owner's...

    The # e54KR is designed to fit the Kia Sportage and Hyundai Tucson. For a front hitch on your 2010 F-350 I recommend the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # C31008. This is specifically designed to fit your truck and has a bolt-on installation.

  • Can I Install A Trailer Hitch On A 2024 Volkswagen Atlas?
    We do offer a trailer hitch for a 2023 Volkswagen Atlas # C24ER. We do not have fitment information for the 2024 models yet (August 2023). I am not aware of any major changes, but we cannot yet confirm fitment for a 2024 Atlas. We are hoping to have fitment information in the coming months. That being said, the mounting points for the hitch are simply four small holes in the frame rail. Volkswagen adds an underbody coating to the bottom of the frame. Kind of like a hard foam. This is likely...

  • Trailer Hitch that Fits 2018 Kia Soul
    Hey John, so we have a hitch that does fit the 2018 Kia Soul with the Draw Tite part # 24915 but the part number you mentioned actually fits older models. The Draw Tite is a 1-1/4 inch hitch though but if you need a 2 inch hitch you'd want the part # 306-X7326.

    I may have a potential solution for you, but we do not carry any custom fit hitches for your 1994 Chrysler Town and Country. It looks like Curt used to make one, but they have not been available for about 2 years now. I can offer you a universal hitch like the Curt # C13701. This hitch is rated for 5,000 lbs towing and can be adjusted to fit frames 18"-51" wide. Please keep in mind that this is not a custom fit hitch and this would have to be fabricated to fit the back of your car. May...

  • Measurements for etrailer Hitch
    Hi John; I can get you some measurements if you let me know what you're looking for and the specific hitch. I can tell you the # e54KR you were looking at is designed to fit the 2011 - 2015 Kia Sportage excluding SX models and the 2010 - 2015 Hyundai Tucson so it will not fit your 1984 Toyota Pickup. We do have the # e96KR which is confirmed to fit your truck.

  • Availability of Trailer Hitch for 2011 Kia Sportage
    We do have hitches for your 2011 Kia Sportage. Since you don't have the SX model the etrailer Hitch # e54KR is what I recommend. This hitch has a bolt-on installation and a concealed cross tube which will give it a nice clean look. It also features a matte black powder coat finish which does a better job hiding those inevitable scratches. If you plan on towing you will also need the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118526. This plugs into the connection points at the rear and will provide...

  • Are There Trailer Hitches Available For A 2024 Hyundai Kona
    Hi Daphne, At this time there aren't any hard dates from the manufacturers we offer for a 2024 Hyundai Kona trailer hitch. You can try reaching out to manufacturers directly as they'll some times want to borrow the vehicle to design and install a trailer hitch if you're willing to loan it out for a few days. If you're needing to haul some accessories we can also look into roof rack options if you can provide me with some more info on what you're wanting to haul.

  • Recommended etrailer Hitch for a 2023 Subaru Outback Wilderness
    Chad, the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e54KR you're looking at is not going to work with your 2023 Subaru Outback Wilderness; Instead, you'd want to use the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e25TR. This hitch is virtually the exact same thing as # e54KR but is just custom to fit your Outback.

  • Are There Any 2" Trailer Hitch Receivers Available For A 2012 Chevy Cruze
    Unfortunately, the only trailer hitch receivers that our vendors currently offer for a 2012 Chevy Cruze are Class 1, which only come with a 1-1/4" receiver tube like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11282. You be able to haul a bike on the Cruze you would need to either switch to truck mount style rack, like the Yakima FullBack 2 Bike Rack # Y02634, or use a bike rack designed for a 1-1/4" receiver tube.

  • Availability Of A Trailer Hitch For A Hyundai H100 Imported Truck
    I do have a potential solution for you. I am afraid we do not carry any kind of custom fit trailer hitch for a Hyundai H100. It may be possible to fit your truck with a universal weld on hitch like the Curt Class 5 Universal Weld-on Hitch # C99CR. The flanges are adjustable and can be made to fit frames between 18" and 44" wide. You would need to take your truck to a professional welder and have the hitch fabricated to fit your vehicle.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch And Wiring For A 2024 Honda Pilot
    Hi Pete, Yes, we currently offer the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e27KR for your 2024 Honda Pilot. This is a custom-fit installation but the crosstube will interfere with the space available for your spare tire so you won't be able to mount a full-size spare and would need a donut-style spare. This hitch comes with a 6K towing capacity and 600lb tongue weight capacity, but you'll want to refer to your owner's manual to confirm your Pilot's limitations. If you plan on towing a trailer...

  • Is there a 2 Inch for a 2018 Honda Civic?
    No, it will not. There are no 2" hitches available from anyone for a 2018 Honda Civic. The only hitches available are class I 1-1/4" hitches due to the small size and capacity of a Honda Civic. To add a hitch to your daughter's 2018 Honda Civic sedan, I recommend the Draw-Tite item # 24954. This hitch is custom fit and mounts behind the rear bumper cover. The only portion visible is the 1-1/4" receiver which not only looks better but helps with ground clearance. I have linked an installation...

    For a similar hitch that does fit your 2008 Subaru Outback we have the Draw Tite part # 75560 which has the 2 inch opening. Then for trailer wiring the harness I would recommend is the Tekonsha part # 118461 which installs easily and has a very reliable converter box.

  • Options For Adding A Trailer Hitch To A 1965 Ford Mustang
    That is a very cool car. I do have a few potential options for you, but we do not carry a custom fit hitch for a '65 Mustang. We do offer a few universal weld on hitches that you may be able to use. For example the Curt # C13702 can be adjusted to fit frames 18" to 51" wide. This is something that would need to be taken to a shop and fabricated to fit the back of your car.

Similarly I've found the Hopkins Plug-In Simple Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # HM40615 which is available still but there is no install video for it but it's pretty easy to install.
