Video Transcript for Curt Hitch Fabrication Parts - Receiver Tube - E-9 Review

Today we're going to review Part Number E-9. This is the Curt 6" combo bar with the 2" trailer hitch receiver. This does have a 2" x 2" trailer hitch receiver opening. You can see right there. This is a hitch fabrication part, it is designed to be welded on to your vehicle or trailer, and allow you to install a 2" ball mount into there. It does have an outer dimension; the outer dimension on it is 2 1/2", and the forged collar on the very opening area right here, the width on that would actually measure 3".

Total overall length from the very front to the very back is going to be right at 6". It is sized and punched to fit all common weight distribution hitch ball mounts, or utility ball mounts. Has a 5/8" diameter pin hole, and it is a raw finish. The reason they do that, it's better for welding, because there's less prep work involved. That should do it for the review on Part Number E-9. This is the Curt 6" combo bar with the 2" trailer hitch receiver. .

Combo Bar 6" with 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver - Unpainted - E-9

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (107 Customer Reviews)


These seem to be well made and easy to work with. I used two of them to make custom leveler mounts on a trailer I was building. They were lightly oiled, and free of rust, making for clean welding.
There is absolutely nothing I can complain about with them. They were exactly what I was looking for, and needed no modifications to accept 2" tube and pins.

Still working well.
Dan G - 05/24/2021


I bought two of these to make a hitch holder for the bed of my truck. This is a quality product. The bare metal was covered in plastic and had very little if any rust on it which cut prep time down prior to welding. I like the design of this product in that it includes the rounded lip on the front of the product which helps inserting hevy hitch stingers. The actual product I received has a mild steel lip on it rather than the apparent hardened steel in the product photo, but it works the same notheless. The steel welded well and I have since order an additional receiver for another project. For the price it can't be beat.

Thanks for the check in. I will continue to purchase items from eTrailer if not for any other reason than the tremendous service. The how-to videos take the trepidation out of the on-line purchase because thebuyer gets to see the product in action. There has always been quick shipping and great follow up.
Ryan H - 07/09/2014


I have purchased numerous items from this year for my truck. There shipping speed is fantastic for buyers who want to move ahead with their projects as fast as possible. I especially like their connection with Curt and that they have access to Curt's unpainted steel towing parts for fabrication and welding.


This part worked very well for our custom risers and dual hitch extensions that hold our patented USA RV Kayak/SUP/Surfboard/Bike/Racks.


Exactly what I needed, it will make mounting a winch way easier.


Fast shipping, good price, and quality product. Will order from etrailer again!


Super sturdy! Heavy duty!


What would seem to be a simple item to make this hitch receiver is well made and strong. This was welded to a front plate for attachment to my garden tractor so that I could add the eTrailer off-road cargo carrier. Combination works well. When looking for a hitch receiver bypass the cheap stuff and go for the better made receiver. Still going strong nearly a year later.


Very nice Hitch Reciever


Exactly what I ordered, welded it to a 1/4" steel plate for a spare tire carrier. Always a pleasant experience to deal with etrailer.

People at etrailer are so nice!
Tucson D - 03/12/2017


Dealing with Jaimie B was great. She was vey knowledgeable and answered all my questions.


Just right for fabricating custom hitches Excellent fit for ball mounts and other accessories such as bike racks and luggage carriers. The plated formed collar is a nice touch.


Great value. This is the second I have purchased for custom hitch applications. The first I added to my JD Gator as the stock hitch is a 1 1/4. The second I used for a custom 3 pt hitch for my tractor. I could have just mounted a ball, but for the price of this, now I can utilize my existing hitches for multiple applications.


This was a great item for adding a receiver tube to the box blade on my tractor. Now I can back up to trailer and pick it up with my 3-point hitch to move it where I need without leaving my seat.


You would need to try REALLY hard to screw this one up.

The collar is not a 2nd piece that is welded on, but actually formed from then end of box tubing itself - a single piece of steel.

Covered with an anti-rust(?) coating, then packed in shrink wrap. Make sure to clean the coating off before welding.

It's made in Canada. It's not made in the USA, but better than China!


My local RV dealers did not carry the short six inch tube . Yours was exactly
what I wanted to make a hitch for my lawn tractor. With a little welding and
paint; it looks like original equipment. Supper quick service!! Thanks - Marty P.


Great looking trailer hitch! Quality product, can't wait to weld it up. I needed it shipped to a different address, and customer service was fast and easy to get in touch with. They shipped it the same day too! If I ever need any more trailer/hitch parts, I'm coming back here; couldn't be happier with this site!


Great product, as advertised. Perfect for my fabrication application (dropped front hitch on a JD utility tractor for a Meyers Home Plow)

Great product, functions as advertised
Mark B - 12/31/2015


The hole did not line up. So it is unusable. about 11/2 " short

It was for a new chev.250 hitch.

It sounds like you are trying to use this as a reducer in the OEM hitch on your Chevy..If thats the case, this part is meant to be used as a fabrication part in order to build a receiver hitch. Its not intended to be an adapter or a reducer sleeve. If you were needing a reducer sleeve to reduce a 2-12 inch receiver opening down to a 2 inch, Id recommend using part # BWRHXA2182
B&W Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve - 2-1/2" to 2"
-- Etrailer Expert Mike L - 03/01/2019


These have changed from a previously welded on lip flange to a pressed on stronger flange construction. We manufacture multi use RV Kayak, Paddle Board, Surfboard, and bike rack included as one.


Well built , quality welds and fit , this is exactly what I needed for the floor mount reciever for my enclosed trailer and the removable winch mount I've installed.


As with years of previous items ordered from e-trailer, this one is of outstanding quality and exactly as described. It arrived quickly and the price was good. I always search e-trailer for needed parts as theirs are reasonably priced, arrive quickly and they have a very high percentage of the trailer related parts which I need.


The Combo Bar " with 2" Trailer hitch receiver is just as described. It is very sturdy and the fit is perfect. It arrived quickly. Great product.


It was what I expected or better. Great workmanship. everything fit perfectly. shipped on time. great product. would recommend you to others.


Welding this on a custom bumper on a 71' Bronco. Great quality receiver hitch.

  • Recommendation for a Stinger-to-Stinger Adapter
    Since we do not sell a dual female sided hitch reciever, I think your best option would be to have a qualified welder weld two of the Curt Combo Bars part # E-9 to each other like you referenced. You should note that there is no tested weight capacity for this setup so you will need to be cautious and be sure to hire a qualified welder.

  • How To Pick Out a Trailer Hitch for a Vehicle
    Sounds like you are looking for a Class III, 2 inch hitch for a vehicle so that you can install a bike rack. Without knowing what you drive I can't really pick one out for you, but I can direct you to our hitch fitguide that will have you enter the year/make/model of your vehicle and all of the hitches we offer will be listed. See the attached link to the right. I attached a couple helpful FAQ articles on hitches for you to check out as well.

  • What are the Internal Dimensions of a Curt Combo Bar Trailer Hitch Receiver Part # E-9
    I went to our warehouse to pull the Curt combo bar # E-9 to provide some measurements. And yes, the Curt combo bar # E-9 will have an internal dimension of 2-inches x 2-inches and outer dimension of the shank is 2-1/2 inches x 2-1/2 inches. The forged collar is 3-inches x 3-inches. See both diagrams to the right. I also included a video for you too.

  • Weight Capacity of Curt Receiver Combo Bar # E-9
    Fabrication parts like Curt Combo Bar # E-9 do not carry a weight capacity rating because that will largely depend on the nature of the installation chosen. To what you weld it and how well you weld it will determine its ultimate capacity. If installed properly it will have enough capacity for any recovery winch intended for use in a 2-inch hitch.

  • Distance from Center of Pin Hole to End of Receiver on Curt Combo Bar E-9
    According to my calculations the distance from the center of the pin hole to the far end of the shank on Curt combo bar # E-9 is 3-1/2 inches. The bar is 6 inches long overall so from the center to the face of the receiver is 2-1/2 inches.

  • Utility Trailer Winch Mounting Options
    You would not be able to mount a winch to a wood bed if you are going to put any kind of load on it. You would need to get the winch mounted to the steel frame somehow. To do this you can use U bolts to attach through the wood bed to the trailer frame, if there is steel frame below the bed. Otherwise you will want to fabricate a mounting location for your trailer. Since you were looking at the Front Mount Trailer Hitch Winch Plate, part # 6495, you could purchase a Hitch Receiver tube...

  • Solution for Mounting Winch in Enclosed Trailer for Pulling Vehicle In
    You can mount a winch to a trailer to allow it to pull things up onto the trailer. This is pretty common for car haulers. You could purchase a Hitch Receiver tube and have it welded to the the trailer frame or crossmember near the front like part # E-9. With a piece like this welded to the frame, you could use the Winch Plate # 6495 mount to attach your winch. You'll need to pull up a portion of the floor to access where you'll attach it. Maybe locate the anchor point from underneath...

  • Recommended Combo Bar With 2 Inch Receiver Opening To Weld To Horizontal Crossbar
    The flanges on part # E17 are spaced 2-3/8 inches apart and designed to be welded to a bar that fits between them. We also have a couple combo bars that may work better for you. The first is part # E-9. This is a 6 inch combo bar that has a 2 inch receiver opening and a collar. The next combo bar we offer is part # E-11. This bar measures 12 inches long and it also has a 2 inch receiver opening and a collar attached. Since you said you are wanting to weld it to a horizontal cross...

  • What Are the Gross Towing and Tongue Weight Capacities of Curt Combo Bar # E-11
    The Curt Combo Bar with 2-Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver # E-11 does not carry a specific tongue weight or towing capacity because these ratings are entirely dependent on the specific installation. The surfaces it is welded to and the manner of installation will be the determining factors in its actual capacity. I verified with Curt that this item carries no specific ratings since it is a general-purpose item like their 6-inch # E-9 and the Reese # 11029. These items also are not specifically...

  • Options to Add 2-Inch Receiver Tube to Car Lift for Use with Winch Mount
    We have not before had another customer inquire about your specific application but we do have hitch fabrication parts that might work for you. Please see the linked page. Based on the substantial material of your lift a weld-on part like the 12-inch Curt Combo Bar # E-11 or the 6-inch # E-9 might be the most direct way to add the 2-inch receiver you want for your winch mount. I suggest making a call to the manufacturer of the lift system just to make sure they have no issues with welding...

  • Hitch Recommendation for Trailer Frame for Dish Tailgator Install
    Since none of our bolt on hitches are designed to fit a bumper, (or in your case a frame), that is 5 inch by 2 inch the best recommendation I could give you would be a Hitch Receiver part # E-9 that you could weld to the frame of your trailer.

  • Can a Trailer Hitch be Installed on a Dune Buggy
    We have several different universal-type of hitches but none specifically for 1-1/2 inch steel tubing (which I assume is round tube). The best solution for you is going to be to have a receiver tube, # E-9, welded onto the tubing by a professional welder. It would probably take about 5 minutes to weld on and I am certain they would not charge much for this installation. Welding services can be found all over. Check your local Yellow Pages (if they still exist) for welders, machine shops,...

  • Can a Trailer Hitch Mount to the Front of Ford F-350 Bed to Tie Down a Power Washer
    What you could do is use the Curt combo bar # E-9. Mounting something to the actual bed is not the best idea because the walls could be too weak or flimsy to hold or stabilize a heavy load. I wouldn't take the risk since the power washer is likely pretty heavy and if the straps failed, it could crush the truck bed where the ball mount is attached. You may need to fabricate something that is integrated into the bed supports or truck frame. Once you secure the Curt combo bar # E-9, you...

  • Making a 3-Receiver Trailer Hitch for a 2007 Ford F-150
    I can certainly help you with the parts you will need to add a 3-receiver hitch to your 2007 Ford F-150. First, a custom fit trailer hitch will not work for this application. What I recommend is a raw steel weld-on hitch such as # 15901. Then you could weld on a couple of receivers # E-9 to create a 3-receiver hitch. All welding should be performed by a qualified professional welder. After welding I recommend painting the hitch because the raw steel can rust.

  • Welding a Custom Receiver Hitch on a Jayco Travel Trailer to Carry a Bike Rack
    The Combo Bar 6 inch with 2 inch Trailer Hitch Receiver, item # E-9 is designed as a fabrication part to build your own receiver hitch. Welding, by an experienced Welder is recommended for this part. I cannot make welding recommendations for these parts as there are too many variables involved such as types of steel used, welding material used, welding equipment and settings on the welding equipment, not to mention safety concerns. We do carry RV Hitches (see link) that are adjustable...

  • Hitch Tube Recommendation for Mounting Clevis Hitch for 2 inch Hitch
    Sounds like you possibly are looking for a hitch opening to attach to something for mounting a clevis in that is designed for a 2 inch hitch. For that we have the Combo Bar # E-9 which happens to be 6 inches in length. The pin hole though is much smaller at 5/8 inch.

  • Where to Mount Winch To Pull Vehicles Up Onto Car Hauler
    Since hitch adapters like what you mentioned end up cutting the capacity of the hitch they are installed in by half the best solution is to mount the winch to the trailer so that you can avoid all of that. You could purchase a Hitch Receiver tube and have it welded to the the trailer frame like part # E-9. With a piece like this welded to the frame, you could use the Winch Plate # 6495 mount to attach your winch. Then you could use the winch part # 1120210 to pull things up onto your trailer.

  • Combo Bar Hitch Tube Recommendation for Installing Second Hitch Opening at Rear of RV
    Sounds like you are wanting to install a second hitch opening on the cross tube of your Winnebago. We offer the combo bar part # E-9 for applications like this. You would have to weld on the hitch opening to your RV and you would have a second hitch tube. We don't have a bolt on application to fit a 2-1/2 by 2-1/2 inch cross tube. You would have to use a RV approved bike rack like what is listed at the attached link.

  • Receiver Hitch for Rear of Jayco 22 Foot Camper
    There are a few solutions for adding a receiver to the rear of your camper. You will first need to contact Jayco to determine the capacity of your bumper. If the bumper is steel, and has adequate capacity, you could have the 6 inch combo bar you referenced welded in place. However, this piece is sold as a fabrication part only and it would be up to you or the welder to do the engineering work to determine if the receiver will have the necessary capacity. Another option would be to use...

Some trailer hitch manufacturers we carry do not give us the hitch dimensions because it is proprietary information. But I can tell you that the hitches you have listed are not going to fit at the front of your 1996 Nissan pickup. The frame is narrower at the front but beyond that it would require modification to the hitch and/or the vehicle that would void the hitch warranty and...
