Worked perfectly. Super easy installation and it carried a U-haul 5x8 trailer 1000 miles with almost full capacity on tow-limits. A little disappointed that the connecting rod doesn't fit perfectly into the receiver hitch. So, when there is no weight on the ball mount, it is wobbly and makes an annoying metal-to-metal clinking noise whenever you go over a ditch. You can easily correct it with a piece of cardboard stuffing for cushioning or just take it off when not it use. Great piece of equipment, works perfectly! Super happy with the purchase.

Everything arrived pretty quick and the install wasn't too difficult for 1 person (would've helped to have an extra set of hands). Took a couple tries to line everything up and realize that certain brackets needed to be unbolted before the hitch would align (tow hook on passenger side, and a couple near the rear driver's side exhaust hanger). Minimal trimming required for the underside of the rear bumper plastic on the driver's side to make room on an 05 wrx wagon. Also needed at least 1 extra long exhaust hanger (kartboy) for the rear to make everything level with my 3" turbo back APS exhaust. Haven't gotten a chance to tow with it yet, but it feels solid.

Very heavy this product is. I was very surprised when I picked up the box it came in and felt the weight, which makes me glad I bought a bag to carry it in. The last hitch I ever got, from another plac, because I needed it in a pinch for my last car during a move, wasn't even close to being as heavy and it was about the same size and had the same weight capacity. The metal on that one also didn't seem right either, didn't have the smooth coating this one does. I am quite confident this ball mount from Curt, who has been in this business for decades, will easily take the weight of my trailer, which I use for things like mulch and stone, and then some. Of course I don't ever plan to over load it, but if something ever happens that requires me to make fast lane changes, I am confident the ball mount won't give out on me. I will still use good safety chains though, I'd be foolish not to. If it's one thing I learned i life, anything can happen no matter how much you prepare ahead of time.

Perfect. Pretty easy to install thanks to the instructions and videos.

by:

Quality product, well made, but design could be improved. The square bar that slides into the receiver on the car/truck is too long, resulting in the hitch ball being about a foot behind the bumper, at least it is on 2004 Ford Explorer. It becomes a trip, knee, or hinge hazard if not removed after towing.

  • Availability of Multipurpose Ball Mount for a 1-1/4 inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    When you get to the small 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receivers there tends to be more restrictions on what they can accomplish due to their lighter weight capacities. Unfortunately there are no multi-purpose, or special ball mounts that can be used with a 1-1/4 inch receiver. You will only be able to use the regular ball mounts. Keep in mind that when choosing the correct ball mount for towing you will want to take your trailer and tow vehicle to a level area and measure from the ground...

  • Availability of 1-1/4 inch Stainless Steel Ball Mount with 2 inch Hitch Ball
    We do carry 1-1/4 inch ball mounts with a 2 inch diameter hitch ball already installed on it in steel, but it is not stainless steel. The steel ball mounts do come with a black powder coat finish though that protects it against rust and corrosion. When deciding the correct ball mount for your application you will want to look at the Rise and Drop that it has to offer and choose one that has the appropriate Rise or Drop for your application. For example the Curt # C45147 has a 1-1/4 inch...

  • What are the Towing Capabilities of a 2016 Nissan Altima SR
    From my research on your 2016 Nissan Altima, it is not recommended to tow a trailer or vehicle dolly. The trailer hitch receivers made for your vehicle like the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24796 you referenced are light duty Class I trailer hitch receivers designed for carrying accessories such as a cargo carrier or bike rack.

  • Is There a Ball Mount for a 1-1/4 Inch Hitch With 1 Inch of Rise
    The good news is that the additional 1/4" of rise you are trying to obtain is likely not going to be necessary when towing a trailer. The vehicle should sag a bit once you attach the trailer so more than likely, the ball mount you have now will work just fine for you. I would not worry about the additional 1/4" or so when towing a trailer as it will not have any negative effect. The bad news is that we do not offer a high rise hitch ball that will fit the Curt Towing Starter Kit for...

I checked with Ecohitch they did not start making hitch receivers for the Jetta SportWagen model's until 2010 and the Jetta sedans until 2015. I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver item # 24866. This hitch receiver is a confirmed fit for the TDI models.

  • Is There a 1-1/4" Ball Mount with a 1" Diameter Hitch Ball Shank Diameter
    I may have a solution for you, but unfortunately the Curt # C45147 has a 3/4" hole for the hitch ball shank and I'm unable to locate any of the ball mounts we have available for a 1-1/4" hitch receiver that will allow for a larger than 3/4" shank diameter.

  • How To Extend A 1 1/4" Hitch On A 2021 Subaru Forester
    In order to reduce the risk of your hitch ball coming in contact with the rear bumper on you 2021 Subaru Forester, you first need to take a measurement from the receiver pin hole to the outside of your bumper. This will determine exactly how long of a ball mount you will need, and if you will need a hitch extender or not. I recommend looking into the Curt Towing Starter Kit # C45147.
