the hitch don't fit perfect with the spare tire other ways is pretty good
if you tele out the spare tire you going to have a hard time to put them back



etrailer sevicio es excelente
la pieza no se acopla perfecto con la rueda de repuesto del resto se monta perfecto .
si se retira la rueda de repuesto es muy dificil de poner de vuelta en el compartimento

Does what its intended for very strong heavy duty no problems..
Robert R - 10/29/2021


by:

Works great. Had to flip the ball so as to use it with the 2" rise. Came preinstalled for the 4" drop.




by:

Still carry this in the cab of my truck, because it came in a great carry case. The only real downfall is the plug--which I used initially, but it soon fell out. I've not used it yet, but it is the mating hitch for the receiver (same brand, etc). It is very well made, and the price was right. I'd buy again.

I store it in the case behind the driver’s seat. It still looks new.

Very convenient kit. Nice to have the locking pin and receiver cover. I reversed to the 2" rise position since my 2016 Honda Odyssey already sits low to the ground.

Will use for towing teardrop camper. Good quality product, good value, and shipped quickly. Product comes in storage case that will be handy when not installed on truck. Helpful that ball was already torqued on receiver.

  • Where To Locate A Help Article On Ball Mount Rise And Drop
    I believe you are referencing the linked Help Article. If you gather the measurements and are looking for a ball mount recommendation, I would be happy to do that for you. I also included a link to all our Help Articles you can find on our website organized by topic for future reference.

  • Can the Hitch Ball on the Curt Towing Starter Kit Be Removed with One Tool
    The Curt Towing Starter Kit part # C45554 will require more than one tool to tighten or loosen the hitch ball, you need an open-ended wrench, adjustable wrench, or table vice to hold the hitch ball and then a socket and ratchet to tighten the nut on the bottom. There isn't a recessed shape in the top of the ball mount to prevent the hitch ball from turning when tightening like on the Reese InterLock Ball Mounts. However, the hitch ball on the above kit comes pre-torqued for you so you don't...

  • Length of Curt Towing Starter Kit for 2 Inch Trailer Hitches
    I'm not 100 percent sure I know the exact dimension you are referring to by center of the hitch pin hole to where you slide the mount up to the receiver, but I believe you are asking about the hitch pin hole to the rear of the Curt Towing Starter Kit for 2" Hitches # C45554. It is approximately 2-1/2" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rear of the ball mount, and 8-1/4" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball. I have added links to a pair of video...

  • How to Determine Rise or Drop for Ball Mount
    You're right, the information for getting everything correct is pretty overwhelming but you seem to have it down pretty well! In order to determine the correct rise or drop you need for your ball mount, all you have to do is measure from the top of your receiver to the ground and from the bottom of your trailer coupler to the ground and find the difference. You can use the cut outs of the linked help article on "How to Measure for Rise or Drop" I added. For example, the Curt Trailer Hitch...

    When installing a trailer hitch on your 2003 Toyota Tundra V6 The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2 inch # 75105 will work for you if you do not have a factory towable bumper. The factory towable bumper would be attached to the bumper and you could slide a hitch ball into it if you had it. The hitch has a gross towing weight up to 5,000 pounds and has a tongue weight up to 500 pounds. I would check your vehicle's manual to find out what the correct...

    I would be happy to help you find the correct drop ball mount for towing your utility trailer with your 2020 GMC Sierra 2500, but the only way to get the correct ball mount is to measure your truck and trailer. You will want to measure from the ground to the top inside edge of the trailer hitch receiver, and then with the trailer level measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler on your trailer.

  • What Hitch do You Recommend for My 2015 Lexus RX 350 F Sport?
    When you say that you have a Sport model of 2015 Lexus RX 350, I assume you mean that you have the F Sport model. For a great hitch that fits that model, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13143. This hitch fits both F Sport and non-F Sport models of 2015 Lexus RX 350. Not only does the Curt provide you with 600 pounds of maximum tongue weight capacity and 4,000 pounds of maximum gross towing weight capacity, the crosstubes come completely concealed...

  • 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver Recommendation for 2020 Toyota RAV4
    For your 2020 Toyota RAV4, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13416. It has a towing capacity of 4,000 lbs and a tongue weight rating of 600 lbs, which is more than what your RAV4 is rated to tow, from what I found online. Definitely take a look at your owner's manual to confirm your specific towing ratings though. I particularly like the Curt hitch because of its superior double coated protective finish and it's concealed look. I've included a photo of the # C13416 installed...

    The Curt Fusion Ball Mount for 2" Hitches # C45154 is not meant to be used in the rise position because the hitch ball is stationary. However, we have better alternatives.

    Yes, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13381 is confirmed to fit all models of 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan. If you are looking for a wiring harness for transporting a small trailer, I recommend the T-One Harness # 118811. This will provide your Tiguan with brakelight/running light/turn signal capabilities. For a ball mount, I recommend the Curt Towing Starter Kit for 2" Hitches - 2" Ball - 2" Rise, 4" Drop # C45554.

  • Will Curt Hitch Fit a 2022 Subaru Forester with EyeSight Feature
    Yes, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13409 will fit your 2022 Subaru Forester with the EyeSight feature. If you're looking to tow with this hitch then you'll also need the Curt T-Connector Wiring # C56040 and the Curt Towing Starter Kit # C45554. Please note that the EyeSight system might not function (it might just shut off) when you're connected to a trailer. This can vary from vehicle to vehicle so it's just something to be mindful of.

  • Determining Correct Ball Mount To Tow Trailer Level With Toyota Highlander
    There are a few different ways to level your trailer to your tow vehicle. The first option is to use a fixed ball mount, but to determine the correct one you will need to measure from the ground to the top inside edge of the trailer hitch receiver on your Toyota Highlander, and then from the ground to the bottom of the coupler on your trailer. The difference between these two measurements will tell you the rise/drop you need. If you find that you do need a 2 inch rise I recommend the...

  • Recommended Hitch, Wiring and Ballmount to Tow Lightweight Trailer With 2020 Honda PIlot
    To tow a lightweight trailer with the 2020 Honda Pilot you will need a hitch, wiring, pin, ball mount and ball. For the hitch I recommend, etrailer Trailer Hitch Receive part # e98840 which has a nice matte finish that does not show scratches as easily as the other options for the Honda Pilot. It is a concealed cross tube so the only part of the hitch that is visible once installed is the receiver. I have attached a photo and a video for your reference.

It has a gross tongue weight up to 3,500 pounds and has a tongue weight up to 350 pounds. Per your vehicle's manual it shows you can go up to 350 pounds tongue weight.

  • Ball Mount with 4 inch Drop, 2 inch Ball, and 10k Weight Capacity
    I have a similar solution that will work great for you but we don't have exactly what you are looking for with a hitch ball installed as well. So instead the best way to accomplish what you are looking for is with a fixed ball mount part # C45311 which has the 4 inches of drop, 10k capacity, and fits a 2 inch hitch. For a 2 inch ball to then fit this you'd want the # A-90 which also has a 10k capacity and you'd be set.

  • Difference Between Curt and Draw-Tite Hitches for 2019 Subaru Crosstrek
    Yes, the biggest difference between the Curt trailer hitch # C13382 and the Draw-Tite Max-Frame hitch # 76209 is that cross-tube on the Curt hitch is hidden behind the bumper, whereas on the Draw-Tite it's fully visible as shown in the comparison photos on a 2019 Crosstrek I've attached. For this reason, I recommend the # C13382. The installation on both hitches is pretty straight forward, requiring only to lower the muffler, insert the hardware in the frame and raise the hitch in place...

This particular hitch has a ground clearance of 12 inches from the ground to the lowest edge of the receiver tube. If you are planning to tow with your RAV4 while using the EcoHitch, it is a good idea to use a ball mount that has a rise in it like the Curt Towing Starter Kit for 2" Hitches - 2" Ball - 2" Rise, 4" Drop # C45554.
