Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (45 Customer Reviews)


by:

This hitch was exactly what was needed for my landscaping customer's small dump body truck. It replaced the original custom hitch with only minor modifications to accommodate the cargo body. I have done considerable work for this customer over many years. No issues reported with this job. All good!! Thanks to Curt and etrailer for great products and stellar service. —

Very happy with this hitch. The size of the end plates matched the frame on our old truck and with the class V weight rating, our old truck can do a few other things around the farm now. Thank you.

Review from a similar Class V Universal Weld-On Hitch in Heavy Duty Receiver Hitch


I called to ask what was the inside dimension of the big square and it was said to be 4 1/2" square, that wasn't even close, it was 3 5/8" square.
But I was lucky I needed 3 1/4 square. I'm modifying this to fit my fisher plow bracket so I have a front hitch to use around the yard. Nobody makes one. I own a machine shop so by getting this saves me a lot of work. So by receiving the wrong info I rating you less than EXCELLENT

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Option for Bus With 35-1/2 Inches Between C-Frame and Drop
    While we have a potential option for you, the hitches that fit a 2000 Chevy Express van have mounting holes 40 inches apart, and additionally the manufacturers expressly state they do not fit the cutaway models, so you will need one of the universal options. What you may be able to use is the Class V Universal Weld-on Receiver Hitch and Brackets with 3" Drop # 15901. This has brackets which are adjustable and fit frames from a minimum of 18" to a maximum of 44" and the receiver has a...

  • Highest Rated Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2003 Ford E-450
    I do have an option for you but the 2003 Ford E-450 is a cab and chassis model to which our aftermarket manufacturers do not test/designed their hitches for. In addition to this we do not offer a Class VI trailer hitch receiver. Therefore, the best option I can offer you is the Class V Universal Weld-on Receiver Hitch and Brackets part # 15901. This hitch has a Class V rating with a 2" receiver tube opening. It fits frame rails spaced between 18" and 43" apart therefore will work well for...

  • Best Class V Trailer Hitch for a Class C Motorhome
    I do still have an option for you in the Class V Universal Weld-on Receiver Hitch part # 15901 but it sounds like you are looking for a custom fit trailer hitch and none of the trailer hitch manufacturers we offer custom fit them to motorhome chassis. Therefore, you will need to notify the above to work for you. It has a class v rating with adjustable brackets that will accommodate your motorhome with slight alterations. The low profile brackets will also provide you with the flush look...

  • Class V Weld-On Trailer Hitch for a 2001 Fourwinns RV on Ford E-450 Van Chassis
    If Curt trailer hitch # 15901 was welded so that the top of the cross tube was flush against the bottoms of the frame rails the drop would only be about an inch or so. The other weld-on options would have even more drop so the Curt hitch is your best option.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for RV with 2001 Ford F-53 Chassis
    I may have a solution for you, however we do not currently offer any custom-fit trailer hitches for the 2001 Ford F-53 Chassis on your motorhome. Our available selection of trailer hitches designed for RVs and motorhomes are all Class III hitches. In order to upgrade, I recommend looking at a Universal Weld-On Heavy Duty Hitch like the Curt # 15901. This is a Class V trailer hitch that can fit frames from 18 inches up to almost 44 inches using the adjustable side brackets. This will offer...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver for an RV that is Rated Higher Than 5,000 Pounds
    We have a universal, weld-on trailer hitch receiver that's adjustable and rated up to 15,000 pounds. The Curt # 15901 will adjust to trailer frames between 18 to 44 inches wide. You'll want to verify the towing capacity of your RV because you will be limited by the lowest rated component and this hitch will not increase your RV's capacity.

  • What are the Towing Capacities for the Curt Hitches part # 15901 and # 15902
    I can tell you what Curt lists as the capacities for their # 15901 and # 15902 hitches. You are correct, they both have 12k capacities. The only other capacity you will need to look up is the capacity for your RV. If it is at least 12k then you could take full advantage of the hitch's capacity assuming they were installed correctly. This info should be in the RV owner's manual.

  • Recommended Class V Trailer Hitch For 2003 Newmar Dutch Star RV
    The Class lV or V hitches we have that are available for your 2003 Newmar Dutch Star RV require welding installations. I recommend the Curt Class V Universal Weld-on Hitch, part # 15901. This will fit frames from 18 up to 44 inches, and with the side brackets produces a drop of 3 inches from the frame. This hitch has a 2 inch receiver opening. You will want to make sure you do not exceed the towing capacity of the RV.

    I have a solution for you, however there are not any bolt-on style trailer hitches made specifically for your 2009 Sterling Bullet C and C 5500. Instead, you could use a trailer hitch like the Curt Class V Universal Weld-on Receiver Hitch and Brakcets # 15901. This hitch features a 3 inch drop, is adjustable up to 44 inches wide, and has a 2 inch square hitch receiver. Weld-on brackets for the hitch can slide from 18 inches to nearly 44 inches.

    Although we don't have a custom fit trailer hitch for your 1961 International C-120 Travelall, doesn't mean it can't be done. I recommend having a certified welder weld a hitch receiver like such as part # 15901. It's a universal hitch usually designed for service or utility body trucks. But you can align the hitch body with the adjustable side brackets to match the width of your 1961 International C-120 Travelall. I included a link to all of the specialty trailer hitches we currently...

  • Class-5 Adjustable Width Hitch for 2012 Ford E450 Cab & Chassis Cutaway
    There are not custom bolt on hitches for this application. The variables in frame widths and custom RV bodies makes it impossible to make a hitch for each RV model. In these cases you have to use a Universal Weld-On hitch. The Curt # 15901 is one such universal hitch which is rated for Class-5 with 15,000 pounds towing capacity and 1500 pounds of tongue weight. The side brackets adjust for frames measuring 18 to 44 inches wide. Please review the attached installation instructions carefully...

  • Looking for Class III Receiver Hitch Crosstube At Least 4 Foot Wide
    For a heavy duty 2 inch Hitch Crosstube in the length you're looking for, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class V, part # 41991. The assembly is 62 inches long, and could be cut down to the 4 foot width you're needing. The hitch has a 2 inch receiver tube. This product would work well as the basis for a hitch on a bus conversion.

  • Hitch Recommendation for a Frame-Mount Bus
    Even though I can't recommend bolting a hitch to your bumper I do have a solution for you. For your application I would recommend a universal frame mount hitch, because this type of hitch will give you a more secure connection since your type of bumper is not ideal for bolting on a hitch. These hitches weld-on to the frame of the vehicle. We offer # 15901 with 3 inch brackets and we offer # 15902 with 10 inch brackets. To choose which hitch will suit your needs you will want to measure...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 1997 Damon Intruder with 10,000 lb Towing Capacity
    We may have something that will work for you, but keep in mind, trailer hitch manufacturers do not make custom fit hitches for RVs and motor homes. A universal hitch is used and is typically bolted or welded to the frame of the RV and in some cases the mounting brackets have to be modified. You will also have to remove the existing hitch, but I recommend holding on to the mounting brackets as templates just in case the mounting brackets for the new hitch have to be modified. I also recommend...

  • What Hitch do You Recommend for My Japanese 1992 Toyota Hilux?
    For your 1992 Toyota Hilux, we did have a neighbor that installed the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13086 on his Toyota Hilux model. I went ahead and attached a picture of the fitment of the hitch on his truck. However, I called Curt and my contact confirmed that there is no way of telling if that hitch will fit for sure on your 1992 Toyota Hilux. Also, as you can see in the attached picture, the hitch does not have the cleanest installation. With that being said, I recommend a universal...

    While we do have some great universal-fit options for your 2022 Ram 5500 4x4 cab/chassis, we do not carry any custom-fit options. With that being said, the best option is a weld-on hitch like the Class V Universal Weld-on Receiver Hitch and Brackets with 3" Drop # 15901 or the Curt Class 5 Universal Weld-on Hitch w/ Brackets - 2" Receiver # 15903. The # 15901 comes with a 3" drop if you need lowered height and comes with brackets that adjust for frames between 18" to 44" wide. The # 15901...

  • Is there a Class IV or V Hitch Available for a 1989 International S1600
    We have 2 hitches that might work depending on the specific measurements of your 1989 International. Curt hitches 15901 and 15902 are both weld-on hitches that will fit frames from 18 inches wide to 44 inches wide. The 15901 has a 5 inch drop. The 15902 has a 13-1/2 inch drop. I am not certain if the hitch itself, being 44 inches wide, will interfere with anything else under the vehicle (seeing as it is 10 inches wider than your frame rails). So you will need to check and see if clearance...

    The side mounting plates on the Buyers Products Hitch Plate # 3371809060A are spaced apart by 34-1/4 inches, inside to inside. This is likely a bit too large for the 33 inch wide frame on your vehicle. Your best option may simply be with a weld-on hitch like the Curt Class V # 15901, which will work on frames that are between 18 and 44 inches wide. This unit features a 2 inch receiver opening and a 15,000 pound towing weight capacity. It is assembled right here in the USA and the mounting...
