Recommended Mounting Bracket for Curt T-Connector 7-Way on a 2013 Nissan Xterra


Is the 7-way connector Part C56226 compatible with the mounting box Part 18159


Expert Reply:

I do have a solution for you but when I went out to the warehouse and tested the Curt T-Connector # C56226 with the 6 and 7-Way Trailer Connector Mounting Box # 18159 that you referenced to find that they actually aren't compatible due to the mounting hole locations on the Curt 7-Way.

Instead of the Draw-Tite mounting box I recommend going with the Hopkins Universal Mounting Bracket # HM48625, which has a variety of mounting holes that will line up, and the No-Drill Mount Bracket # 18140.

I have attached photos of the mounting hole dimensions of the Curt connector as well as the Hopkins bracket for you to compare as well as an installation video of the Curt on a 2014 Nissan Xterra for you to check out.
