Video Transcript for Review of CURT Hitch Covers - 2 Inch Rubber Tube Cover - C22272

Hi, everybody. Andy here with Let's take a real quick look at this CURT two inch Rubber Tube Cover. Now, as you probably know, a hitch cover adds a clean, finished look to your hitch, and they also keep dirt and grime out of your receiver tube. And that's going to help keep your receiver tube safe from rust and corrosion, so that the next time you're ready to use a ball mount or a hitch mounted accessory, you're not grinding against rust and corrosion that has potentially built up inside of the receiver tube of your trailer hitch. So this is really gonna prevent that from taking place.

This is made of a durable rubber construction. And it features a weather resistant design, which keeps it safe from the elements. It doesn't require a hitch pin or a hitch lock to hold it into place. It's simply going to fit right into the receiver tube opening, and the tight fit is going to keep it in place, and it's gonna keep it from accidentally slipping out. Now, as I mentioned, this is designed to fit your two inch trailer hitch receiver.

The face of the unit is a square design. And just to give you the measurement of the face, as you can see, we are sitting right at three and one eighth inches. By the same measurement, three and one eighth inches. And installation is gonna be very easy. You'll notice that along the sides, we have these raised ridges, and that's gonna go into the hitch.

And that's going to create a tight fit as it sits inside your two inch trailer hitch receiver opening. Well, that's gonna wrap up our real quick look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me.

Curt Rubber Tube Cover - 2" - C22272

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (810 Customer Reviews)


Super easy to install. It took 20 minutes. My only issue was finding a 1/2in hex bit socket to shoot the large top bolt. It's not a common size. Once that obstacle was overcome, installation was a snap.
My bike rack and trailer are secure and safe on the hitch. I'm happy with my purchase.


The tube cover enhances the look of the installed trailer hitch.


Fits in the etrailer hitch very good.


The hitch appeared to be just short of reaching both frame attach points and although it tightened down fine it could have been a bit wider. Bits of paint missing here and there but overall it went on fine. However, Hyundai is in the process of recalling autos with hitches due to a fire hazard with the control module. I don't intend to mount the wire harness until I'm convenced that it's safe to do so.


2023 Sportage PHEV
Product came with
all required parts. Attempts to install without trimming molding were unsuccessful-too tight to thread hitch-to-frame bolts. Used a floor jack and install was uncomplicated.


It tits snugly and prevents junk going into the hitch. It’s on my wife’s ca r and she sparingly uses the hitch, so the cover basically lives in the hitch. She’s had it for a year and it never fell out.


Great quality, and the directions were clear and easy to follow. Took me about six hours to install, which included a trip to Home Depot and then another to Lowe’s to find something that would work to enlarge the holes. (Tip: Lowe’s has a 2-step Unibit by Irwin, 7/8” to 1 1/8” for about $xx. Expensive, but it definitely made the job easier.) The exhaust hangers were a pain to remove; use lube to make them easier to work off. I did the optional step of drilling the exhaust heat shield because I didn’t want to leave it off. There is one bolt that will not be replaced when you reinstall it. There is also one bolt on the driver’s side cover that will not be replaced. It will be a huge help if you have a friend hold up the hitch when you bolt it on, or use jack stands. I struggled working it into place by myself. I’ve been an etrailer customer for years. They are hands down the best retailer for all your towing needs, and their customer service is top notch.


Nice firm rubber, not hard plastic. Fits nice and snug in Curt hitch.



Still fits well and the rubber has not deteriorated.


So far it has been just fine good quality hitch . so far i have only used it for a cargo carrier worked great .


Fit perfectly into the Curt 2" receiver hitch


I was a bit skeptical but this actually worked out of the box on my honda CRV. Install was fine and I actually did it single-handed and without a lift. Took me 2 hours. Hitch has been great for a year now.


Should have been using this for years to prevent rust in the hitch receiver. Works great!


I really appreciated the fish wire provided with the bolts. Everything was very well laid out and easy to understand from the instructions and installation process.


All hardware was present, the install completed as your video demonstrates, I’m very happy with finished job.


Great bike rack put together under an hour.. only wish the arms were easier to adjust.


Cannot complain at all - fit perfect just as I was told it would!
Other sites told me there were no tow hitch available for my vehicle!

They were wrong! Thank you!


Very responsive and efficient service. It would have been good to know that the trailer hitch does not automatically come with a cover, which had to be ordered separately.


Awesome price and very useful. I don't tow constantly and pop this in my hitch to keep it clean. Recommended 100%


Inexpensive way to prevent water getting into the hitch and causing rust over the long run


Every Curt product I ever ordered and installed fit perfect and was high quality.


These items should be a standard package when ordering the trailer hitch.


Second hitch purchased from you…great fit and appearance…very prompt shipping…thank you, etrailer!


I purchased the CURT trailer hitch for my 2021 Lincoln Corsair about one year ago. I only use to tow around the tow dolly at RV parks. The one issue I have is it appeared the left (Driver's) side mounting holes (front hole) needs to be oblong 1/4" more towards the front, so the mount bolt could fall in straight down, instead of being cocked facing backwards. Installation was easy for a one person, lying on the floor using a floor jack and basic hand tools, and instructions were easy to follow.


Well built and fits tightly. Needed for front mounted hitch to keep the tube clean inside.


Everything worked well and installed well for my application...thanks

  • How to Install the Curt Rubber Tube Cover # C22272
    The Curt Rubber Tube Cover, # C22272, is considered a press fit cover because it slides into the end of a hitch receiver. I made a short video showing how this installs.

  • What Size Spare Tires Does the Curt Hitch for a 2006 Mercury Mariner Work With
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13650 which is a fit for a 2006 Mercury Mariner is designed to work alongside the factory sized spare tire per the manufacturer. If you have anything other than this then we would indeed not be able to confirm fit. I did some research for you online and it looks like the factory spare tire size for this vehicle should be a 195/55R20 but I also encourage you to reach out to a local dealer to confirm this. We don't really do testing in-house with different...

  • Does Curt Trailer Hitch for 2016 Lexus RX350 Come with Cap for the Hitch Tube
    The Curt hitch part # C13272 that you referenced is a great option for your 2016 Lexus RX 350 that we would recommend highly. It's also our most popular option with your vehicle. Sounds like you are asking about a hitch cover like the part # C22272 as the cap you mentioned. This is not included with the hitch but you can order it separately.

    The 2017 Ford Escape S has a set of turndown exhaust pipes that are different than the other sub-models. The only Curt hitch that is a confirmed fit for the S edition is indeed part # C13186. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver tube opening. This hitch is made right here in the U.S.A and comes with everything needed for installation. You can see the hitch installed on a similar 2017 Ford Escape which I have attached for you but since it is not an S edition,...

  • Do All 6 Bolts Need to Be Used to Install the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Part # 13322
    You will need to attach and secure all 6 bolts holding the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13322 to your 2007 GMC Sierra Classic. Not attaching all 6 bolts would void the warranty of the hitch and likely affect its capacities/performance. I recommend trying to bend the bumper back into place or buying a new bumper entirely as the two forward most bolt holes will need to be attached. To ensure the new bolts do not cross thread while attaching to the weld nuts on the frame you will want...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2018 Jeep Cherokee Latitude
    For your 2018 Jeep Cherokee Latitude with the Altitude package the Curt hitch part # C13172 would be a great option as it has great towing capacities and is mostly hidden. For trailer wiring the most reliable and easiest to install solution is the Tekonsha part # 118605. Then for a Curt rubber hitch cover you'd want the part # C22272 and you'd be set.

    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13383 which is a fit for your 2018 Chrysler Pacifica will indeed be able to carry four bikes on any bike rack that has a 2" shank assuming you are within the weight capacity of both the bike rack and hitch/vehicle whichever is lower. The Curt Cam Buckle Stabilizing Strap part # 18050 that you mentioned is not required but it is also not a bad idea as it will help support the bike rack with bikes. This is going to create less stress on the hitch/vehicle....

  • Can Factory Trailer Hitch Cover Still be Used After Trailer Hitch Installation on a 2004 VW Touareg
    I spoke with my contact at Curt about Trailer Hitch # 13220. He stated that on your 2004 Volkswagen Touareg the rear panel that is removed for hitch installation cannot be re-installed. The receiver will be in the way. What I recommend is a hitch cover. We have many hitch covers from the simple like # C22272, to the functional like # CR-600. I have included a link to our hitch cover main page for you to view. If you find one you like, make sure that it is compatible with a 2 inch trailer...

    I do have a hitch cover and anti-rattle sleeve option for you, however, the Draw-Tite QSP Trailer Hitch Silencer and Cover part # 63080 will not fit a 2" Curt trailer hitch receiver as the collar on the outside of the hitch receiver is too large. In order to cover the receiver opening on a 2" Curt trailer hitch receiver like part # 13707 I recommend using the Curt Rubber Tube Cover part # C22272.

    I do have a solution for you, however the collar on the receiver portion of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13152 that you mentioned is simply too large to accommodate fitment of the Draw-Tite QSP Trailer Hitch Silencer # 63080. I went out to the warehouse to test fitment and found the same issue that you did. Because this cover is specially designed for Draw-Tite hitches, there are certain Curt hitches that it will not work with. For a similar anti-rattle/stabilizing device, I recommend...

  • Does the Heat Shield Need To Be Reinstalled With Trailer Hitch on a 2019 Subaru Forester
    Thank you for your purchase of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13409. It is not a requirement to reinstall the heat shield but I always recommend you do so that way there are no warranty issues if anything were to happen. In order to reinstall the heat shield all you will need to do is drill two small holes in it which you can see in the attached photo and then it's ready to be reattached. If you don't want to reinstall the heat shield then no worries neither, the structural integrity...

  • Better Corrosion Resistance for Trailer Hitch on 2019 Toyota RAV4
    Both the Curt # C13416 and Draw-Tite # DT82QR have a protective base coat and then a powder coat finish. Both have good powder coating, so simply based on experience Curt has a tendency to have a thicker powder coat on their products, so that is my recommendation for better corrosion resistance between the two hitch options. I also recommend using a hitch cover like # C22272 to keep excess salt out of the inside of the receiver.
