Video Transcript for Curt Hitch Covers - Misc Covers - I-728 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Curt rubber hitch cover for two-inch trailer hitch receivers. Now, this part will keep your hitch receiver free from dirt and debris with this cap-style cover. It has this band right here that will fit snugly around the hitch tube, so that you can just keep it on there, even when you're towing. And, if you notice, on the band, right at the bottom here, it has a storage port that you can put your four-way in, to keep your four-way connector from hanging down and keeps the plug right there, ready to connect.What I am going to demonstrate, right here, is I got an example of here's what the end of a two-inch hitch receiver opening would look like. So all you have to do first is just take this and stretch that band right around the opening, until it goes around the tube. Then slide it back, just like that.

Then, once you've got it on there, then you can take your hitch cover and go ahead and just push it right into place. It's a nice rubber, firm fit. Once you push it all the way into place, it gives you a nice, secure fit, and then the nice features, again, if you look underneath, you see that port, right there.So here's an example, like if you have this four-way hanging on your vehicle. Instead of having it hanging down, all you have to do is just insert it, push it all the way in there. You can see, just like that, it will hold your four-way right into place, ready to plug in whenever you need to tow.But that should do it for the review on the Curt rubber hitch cover for two-inch trailer hitch receivers..

Rubber Tube Cover for 2" Trailer Hitch Receivers - I-728

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (539 Customer Reviews)


I bought a hitch receiver a while ago and lost it driving through a farm (not the best idea). I drove into a ditch with tall grass and dirt, the cover was ripped off the hitch and my hitch was exposed filled with grass. By the time I realized the cover was lost, I was three hours away so I decided to get a new one. Very happy with the protection and look it gives to my car.


This hitch cover fell off during the first week of use — same as the previous one. I've given up on hitch covers.


I didn't want dirt, dust, and spiders to get inside the receiver so started looking for a receiver cap that solved that, and more importantly, looked clean. Etrailer always has what I need so I started my search here. I found this one right away and knew this was the one. Our van's receiver was not installed with any electrical wiring so I didn't need the cap to protect the plug. A few minutes of "customizing" and voila!... it fit perfect and looks super clean. I'm glad I bought this one.


I like this cover a lot. I cut the cover and the band with the 4-pole connector holder apart so It would hold the wires on top of the receiver and not be hang down when the hitch is in use. This worked out very well on my 2012 Chevy Equinox and keeps everything very clean looking. The rubber cover is soft and stays in place very well on my Curt hitch receiver.


Works nicely. Simple install and looks good.



The hitch cover meets expectations but it requires some attention when ing into the receiver. It does not always want to stay in. Need to double check that it is fully ed.


I have attached three pictures if you want to use them. One is a shot of the 3 bolts on one side of the hitch after I bolted it to my 2016 RX 350. Another shot is of the hitch beautifully displayed below the center of the bumper. The third shot is with the hitch cover on.


Awesome product, fits tight, like retention strap. Had one before, different vehicle, proved durable. Newer version also has holder for 4 pin connector.


Discreet look and perfect fit for my Draw-Tite hitch. The rubber may also help to cushion any blows to the shins when loading & unloading stuff.


Cover works great. Keeps my wireing harness dry too.


Great cover. Made of durable black rubber, it should be able to cushion a minor impact and protect the hitch. The strap is a very useful feature. I just flip it up when I attach my bike rack and I don't have to worry about loosing it.


Perfect fit. The wiring harness plug holder is a nice touch.


Easy to install, helps keep the receiver clean.


Fits well and I like that it has a retainer, so it won't get lost.


Priced right, quick delivery, quality p roduct!


Excellent product! I bought two, one for my Tacoma and for the wife's Colorado, I Gorilla glued some loop velcro on mine and then affixed a morale patch, you are welcome to share if you'd like. Etrailer is a great place to do business with, Thank you!


Good quality cover. I rotated the cover so it hinges open like a door with the flat four electrical stowing feature on the side. Works great.

by: took the guess work out of finding the right trailer hitch for my vehicle and needs. The combination of printed instructions and videos made installation a snap. Two recommendations...1) "unscrew" the metal fishing wires a bit before placement of the hitch...I had them fully threaded and it was harder to remove them once the rack was in place, 2) I installed this on my own...and extra set of hands will make it much easier to lift the hitch and navigate the muffler/exhaust.


Fit good and will do the job. Thanks!


Great quality! Easy installation!


Just what I ordered. Looks exactly like the picture and fits exactly.


Looks great!


This item no. I-728, Rubber Tube Cover for 2" Trailer Hitch Receivers, is great in all regards. It was so easy to install, high quality, does its protecting job, looks super on vehicle but simple and plain, doesn't call attention to itself. Appears will be long lasting. Exactly what I was wanting and only one found anywhere which fit all my needs. And Ellen N. was so helpful in ordering, immediate shipment, arrived in perfect condition. Can't praise highly enough both the product and the purchasing experience. Both beyond excellent - exceptional!

Jim O.


Great! Perfect! Could not be more pleased. Looks great, works great, wears great. Cant think of any other purchase of any type which has worked so well!


Not a ton to say about the product itself, just a good plain trailer hitch receiver cover. I had the same one for years and traded my truck and forgot to yank it off. was the only place I could find the same cover. Everyone else had silly sayings of which I was not interested in. had what I was looking for at a very fair price. I received my order quickly and it shipped at a very reasonable shipping rate. I would definitely order from again.

Perfect product


The unit fits perfectly over my 2” hitch mount. I bought it for the purpose of slowing down rust starting up. It’s plain black rubber color goes along with the black paint of my Ford Draw-Tite hitch. Nothing fancy but look nice covering the hole on my hitch when not pulling a trailer.

Etrailer Expert

Mike L.


Because a trailer hitch is exposed to debris kicked up from the road and ice-melting chemicals, its a good idea to give the hitch a look over once a year or so and touch up any rust spots. The powder coat on a hitch is pretty durable, but abrasion will wear it away leaving the hitch vulnerable to corrosion.



It’s been a year and the hitch cover is still looking good with no visible aging from the element or salt water effect. It’s a good and sturdy product and covers my hitch mount well whenever I remove my hitch. I’m glad I bought and installed it keeping the back of my van looking nice.

  • Will Hitch Tube Cover part # I-728 Fit a 2013 BMW X5
    As long as you have a 2 inch hitch installed on your 2013 BMW X5 the Curt Tube Cover part # I-728 is going to be a fit as this is designed to fit 2 inch hitches. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Will Curt Tube Cover, # I-728, Fit A Factory Installed Hitch On A 2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
    The Curt Rubber Tube Cover, # I-728, is made to fit all 2 inch hitch receivers. The factory hitch on your 2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac will be a 2 inch hitch. Trailer hitches are only made in 1-1/4 inch, 2 inch and 2-1/2 inch sizes. The 2-1/2 inch size would be used only on large trucks and vans. A nice feature on the Curt hitch cover is that it has a storage port for your 4-pole trailer connector molded into the rubber ring that holds the cover on to the hitch.

  • Availability of Rubber Hitch Tube Cover in 1-1/4-Inch Size Similar to Curt # I-728
    The Curt Rubber Hitch Tube Cover for 2-Inch Trailer Hitch Receivers, part # I-728 that you referenced, does have a similar mating product for smaller 1-1/4-inch size hitches such as the one on your wife's 2008 Toyota Sienna. The Curt Rubber Tube Cover # C22271 differs slightly in that it does not have the retaining ring that slips over the receiver tube to prevent loss of the cover.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2007 KZ Escalade 5th Wheel Toy Hauler Trailer
    For your 2007 KZ Escalade 5th wheel trailer, I recommend the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs # 13703. This hitch will bolt on or weld on to frames ranging from 22" to 72" wide. It will work on box frame, C-channel, or I-beam frames. It has a gross trailer weight of 3,500 lbs and a max tongue weight of 350 lbs. You can use the rubber cover # I-728 to keep a clean look when not in use. Let me know if you have further questions.

  • Availability of a Soft Rubber GMC Reciever Hitch Cover for a 2003 GMC Sierra
    If it was a soft, rubber hitch cover like the CURT # I-728 you were looking at, it was probably made for GM and put on at the factory or distributed to dealers. I have added a link to all of our GMC hitch covers below. We may have something you like. We always recommend using a hitch lock, like part # e98880, to deter thieves from stealing your cover.

  • Can the Center Knockout Panel be Re-Installed After a Trailer Hitch on a 2015 Cadillac SRX
    The receiver tube portion of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13002 will extend out past the rear bumper fascia on the 2015 Cadillac SRX so the center knockout panel cannot be reused unless modified. This will be the case for all aftermarket trailer hitches available for your vehicle. However, if you trim the center knockout panel around the receiver tube opening and install a hitch cover like part # I-728 you can achieve a very clean look which you can see in the attached photo. Unfortunately,...

  • Recommended Cover for Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver
    I don't have a list of every hitch the Rubber Tube Cover for 2" Trailer Hitch Receivers part # I-728 fits unfortunately but it does look like there is room for the tether on the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # DT79MR so it should work. That said, there is an even better option for you in the Draw-Tite QSP Trailer Hitch Silencer and Cover for 2" Hitch Receivers part # 63080 which has a much more secure lockup and severs as an anti-rattle device.

  • Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock & Hitch Cover for Reese 2-Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    The diameter hitch pin for a 2-inch hitch is 5/8-inch, very close to your 9/16-inch dimension. In this size we offer a plain pin/clip # PC3, locks such as # BD580412 and anti-rattle locks such as # 63232. This anti-rattle lock works in any hollow-shank ball mount or accessory carrier to both steady it and help protect it from theft. I linked our main pages for 2-inch hitch covers, including plain rubber covers like # 22282 and # I-728 as well as themed covers.

  • Recumbent Bike Rack Recommendation for 2021 Nissan Rogue
    For a recumbent bike like yours that has a 68 inch wheelbase the Swagman XC Extended Bike Rack part # S64650-EXT would work great as it can fit a wheelbase up to 69 inches when used with the gray wheel hoops. The etrailer hitch part # e93ZR is a fit for your 2021 Nissan Rogue as well. The hitch aligner part # e98942 would be a great option too. I use this with a cargo carrier and it's really helpful. And then to keep the hitch covered the part # I-728 would work great too.
