I've had no issues.



by:

Well built....very good quality welds.

by:

It’s beefy and solid. The mounting bracket square holes had to be cut in a smidge and he added two more support bars.. but all in all. My welder said it would tow 11-12 k. Not the 16k I was told. But hey. I’m okay with that. There was a shipping issue which forced me to reschedule a few things, that is the only reason I gave 4 stars. Otherwise I am supper happy with how it turned out.



by:

It is very well built and the powder coating is very tough, took a good grinding to get it off for the welds. Good price as well. I used it for my 2006 Bounder 35E, not because it was a high rate hitch, as I did not need one, but this was the only one that would lower the hitch to a more normal height from the ground. The old hitch was so high a 10" deep was not enough to use a trailer parallel to the ground. Now I can hook up a lot easier and not worry about scraping. Looks good too.



by:

Great quality product from Curt . Can be easy installation depending on the application.. mine more difficult because of aluminum alloy frame, so will have to do some reinforcing.



by:

attached this hitch to my 1984 American General 5 ton military truck. Had to do some modification to air lines and drill a few holes but it is perfect for pulling civilian trailers with the M 813.



by:

I put this on my 03 Freightliner Columbia. It does everything I want it to. It is bolted and welded.
I like it so much that a bought another one and put it on my old school bus. That one is just bolted on.



by:

Perfect fit on my 2009 blue bird



by:

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.



by:

Fast shipping



by:

Added (welded) to our diesel pusher Motorhome and have no issues and really no worries while towing whatever we feel we need while camping.



by:

I think you guys should send me some ap parel!



by:

Well, I really respect the fact that they waited for one year before asking for a review, they offer a 2 inch and a 2 1/2 inch receiver the 2 1/2 inch receiver would obviously be a larger rectangle to accommodate a half an inch, the vertical uprights I received had holes pre-cut to accommodate a 2 1/2 inch receiver I ordered a 2 inch receiver, needless to say, there was an abundance of slop, half inch gaps, requiring a lot of fabrication on either side of the vertical uprights, knowing this now, going with the 2 1/2 receiver should have saved a ton of unnecessary fabrication time.



by:

Exactly what we wanted. Worked perfect on our recent, extended trip to Alaska and back.



by:

Solid as stone!!



by:

I welded this up on my 2004 GMC converted school bus, it worked great with minimal bumper notching



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. —



by:

Works great!



by:

Great product. Fast delivery



by:

Was able to position the hitch where I wanted on a chassis cab and it works great.



by:

Brent was amazing with his attention to detail. He made sure I received the correct hitch and a follow up on my delivery. Thanks again



by:

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



by:

Great product. Super faster shipping. Excellent customer service



by:

it was nice product to buy put it was to small had to return it and i order a bigger one thanks etrailer

  • Option for Hitch for 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 With Roll Pan Bumper
    I checked all hitches for a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500, and each of them are designed to fit with a standard factory bumper, so there are no options for custom fit options. That means the best alternative that might work is a universal weld-on hitch, the Class V Universal Weld-on Receiver Hitch # 15903. This requires a completely bare metal surface to weld on and is for frames up to 60.88 inches wide. I have added a link below to the installation instructions for you to check out as well.

The # 15903 fits frames that are 18" - 60.88" wide so you will need to measure your frame to verify it falls within this range. This hitch has a 1500lb tongue weight rating, and 15000lb...

    I have a solution for you but the brackets on the Curt item # 15903 can not be cut and there are no shorter options. I recommend using the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch item # 41990-07 instead. This is also a class V universal hitch with a 2" receiver. It however includes brackets that provide a 7" drop. It can also be bolted on or welded. I have attached a diagram below so you can compare the dimension of these brackets to your Eldorado's frame to make sure they will work. If you have any...

  • Trailer Hitch Compatible with Liftgate Truck
    We have many hitch options for a truck that has a lift gate, but very few of them are a simple bolt on custom application. Because the locations for attaching lift gates vary, you will need to use a weld on option like the Class V Universal Weld-on Receiver Hitch # 15903. There are many different bracket options for a hitch like # 4907 and # 4916.

  • Upgrading Hitch Capacity for 2007 Monaco Signature Series
    We can get you a higher capacity hitch, though please keep in mind that your towing capacity is going to be limited to the lowest-rated component. So if your 2007 Monaco Signature Series only has a 12,500 lb towing capacity that would be the most you could tow even with a higher-rated hitch. There is not a bolt-on option available if you wanted a higher capacity, so for your 36-1/4" frame rails the hitch that would work is the Curt Class V Universal Weld-on Receiver Hitch # 15903.

  • Is There A Trailer Hitch For The 2013 Mercedes-Benz ML350 Bluetec?
    Hello Silvio, thanks for reaching out. The hitches that we offer for the 2013 Mercedes-Benz M-class, the Curt # C13411 and the Draw-Tite # 76141, will only fit gasoline models. Since your ML350 Bluetec is a Diesel, these hitches will not fit. Unfortunately we do not offer anything for the Diesel models at this time. Your only option would be to take a Universal Weld-On hitch like the Curt # 15903 and have a professional welder fabricate something to fit.

Since you can weld the best option is going to be an adjustable-fit weld-on hitch.
