Great hitch, after one year I still recommend. Get one!

The product works as expected. I use it primarily for towing a 10,000 lb offshore boat. I leave it in one position 80% of the time but occassionally adjust it when hauling a different trailer, and the adjustment is easy. However this is significantly heavier than it looks or any other hitch I've used since it is not made of hollow square tubing, but a solid steel block. I have no doubt it is strong, but it is probably over 30 lbs. So if you plan to switch vehicles with it often, be prepared.

I had the 2.5" receiver for my 2014 Ram 2500 so it was a no brainer to go with the Curt 2" receiver for my 2002 Chevy 2500.

Still very happy with this receiver. Highly recommend it.

This hitch has worked out great for me over the last year. It’s very heavy duty and easy to adjust. I’ve hauled a 9,000 lb boat, long-distance on numerous occasions without issue. I also haul a landscape trailer on a daily basis weighing over 5,000lbs and haven’t had a single issue. Great hitch that was significantly cheaper than others and is very high quality. I’ve recommended it to several people and I wouldn’t hesitate to buy again. The only thing I would like to have now in a hitch is a tongue weight gauge, but it isn’t necessary.

Package arrived within 2 days of ordering. The receiver, 3 pins, and the two balls were with package as ordered. Haven't put it to use yet but seems to be tough and very durable. Using the hitch for a 2005 Chevrolet 2500 gas, hitch has plenty of drop and rise for stock suspension. So far very pleased with this item from etrailer and with other items I have purchased in the past.



- C45900
by:

Excellent product. Installed in minutes. I tow a 14 k lb dump trailer. Needed the additional rise on the hitch. The draw bar is adjustable so that I can tow my utility trailer as well. High quality like most products I have purchased from etrailer.com


Comments
Very good except the Rubber s have worn causing hitch to vibrate
JohnnyB - 10/01/2018

Good that a new pin to hold ballmount in receiver was included, but it was too short to go through the 2 1/2" receiver tubing. Other than that, a nice heavy assembly.

Delivered 5 days before Another online retailer could and the hitch worked perfectly.


Comments
1 Year Review... Love it even more a year later. Ive towed anywhere from 3k - 11k and the hitch works flawless. I love the ability to adjust the hight of the ball to match the different trailers. Excellent value for the money. No complaints.
Tim - 03/12/2022


- C45900
by:

I really like this. We have a variety of different trailers (different height, different size balls, etc.), and this hitch makes it easy & convenient for adjusting between them!



- C45900
by:

This hitch is as KISS as an adjustable hitch could be. Built very well, with good thick gussets, a solid receiver shank, perfect welds and a good powder coat. The fact the trailer balls are built from one forged piece means no worry about a nut loosening and no weld to potentially break. I would go ahead and recommend you buy two replacement rubber isolators and just go ahead and put them in the other two holes in the hitch so no matter where the ball is it has some contact with an isolator without having to move the one it comes with. I highly recommend etrailer, they have great prices and fast shipping and they put out a lot of very helpful videos and pictures of the products they are selling.

I am very impressed with C45900 ball mount. Curt is an excellent manufacturer. The only thing I did not like are the snap rings on the pins. I have seen those get hooked unintentionally or be pulled to steal the ball mount. I replaced Curt's pins with Grade 8 bolts, drilled holes and secured with a padlock. It would be nice if someone made a locking hitch pin with enough span for the channel. I added the reflective tape for higher visibility. I live in Phoenix where they have a plant. Please run this idea by them and let me know what they think. The two locking hitch pins would only raise the price by $50. If you have a vendor who has longer pins please let me know. Using unsecured pins is asking for trouble. Thanks--Jerry

The hitch worked great I bought this hitch plus a Curt Lunette ring C48660 for my pull truck. Used the hitch setup for the first time last night and worked flawless, I would definitely recommend this setup to my friends the price was great and the hitch is well built.Thanks etrailer



- C45900
by:

This is a great hitch. I have several different style trailers that I pull and this is quite easy to pull up to the trailer and adjust the hitch and hook up and go. I would highly recommend this product



- C45900
by:

I like the overall versatility of this hitch but the only reason I’m not giving it 5 stars is because Curt is manufactured in the USA. The box I received says it was made in India! I hope this metal is strong and well made cause my horses lives depend on it.


Comments
Thank you for your review. The Curt hitches are assembled in the USA but not the ball mounts. The only adjustable ball mounts that we carry that are made in the USA are the B&W adjustable ball mounts like part BWTS10040B.

This hitch is well made - very solid construction - and is the perfect solution for switching between my WInnebago and Suburban, and motorcycle trailer (2" ball) and enclosed cargo trailer (2 5/16" ball).

Solid is the best word to describe this drop hitch. Works like a charm on my 2005 f250. Allows me to get whatever height I need weather it’s jet skis, or a dump trailer. And it’s got a massive 14k lb rating. LOVE IT.

Perfect! You just can’t hurt this thing.

Just what I needed in a drop hitch. Very stout. Love the ability to change by 1 inch at a time.

Very happy with this product. Very easy to install and put together. The welding on this is fantastic and very durable. The two balls on this product are perfect for my needs. Over all I'm very happy with my purchase, great price, great product and great experience with this website.

If you are hesitating about buying this product, DON'T. Get it NOW. Life is too short to go sifting through your truck tool box to find the right size ball with the right size drop hitch or remembering you left what you needed somewhere else on some other vehicle. This product is all you need. Its stout, gives you a 2" and a 2 5/16" and all the height adjust-ability a guy could ask for, that is unless you are driving a truck that is jacked up 4 and a half feet. This product was shipped quickly, well packaged and was just what I ordered. Its stout and with a 14,000# rating, all most of us would ever need. Swapping balls or the height is as easy as pulling two clevis pins. there is an anti vibration bushing, but having towed with it an without, I don't bother moving it, but then again, I drive a very loud second gen dodge 2500 24V diesel so if it was making noise, I wouldn't hear it any way. I put a locking pin in mine and it lives on the back of my pick up. Gone are the days of searching for the right hitch. Do yourself a favor, buy the C45900 adjustable ball mount. And if you were wondering if you can put some rock tamers on with this hitch, wonder no more - you can. The hitch has two cross drilled holes in it and I simply chose the hole closer to the body of the truck which extended the hitch out enough to mount my rock tamers. Seriously, buy this hitch if you tow. Even if you don't tow, you might want to purchase it just for pride of ownership.


Comments
A year later and I am as enthusiastic about this hitch as I was when I first started using it. There is a little oxidation on the pins, but they have enough play that it doesnt bind them and moving the hitch and balls is a breeze. There is no oxidation, rust, paint chipping or porosity on any of the welds. This is a great product.

It was just what I was looking for to pull my fourteen thousand pound trailer. Now I can go from one trailer to another no problem. The price was the best I could find and shipping was lightning fast!

So I received information that my product had been delivered via ups but it wasn't. I contacted the business and immediately received assurance that they would follow up with the tracking and get back to me with what they found. The next morning I received a follow up email that stated the product was accounted for and scheduled to be delivered. I did receive my package from UPS, and it was a glitch on their side. I then received another email stating asking me to advise if the product had been delivered which I replied to. Overall fantastic service, product and customer support. I will be buying again and letting my friends know as well.

Ask the Experts about this CURT Trailer Hitch Ball Mount



  • Which Adjustable Ball Mount for Truck With 6 Inch Lift
    To choose the correct ball mount for your needs, you'll need to determine the height difference between the hitch on your truck and the level coupler height of the trailer. I'll link you to a help article that explains how to do this. In a nutshell, you measure from the ground up to the top inside of the receiver tube, then from the ground up to the bottom of the trailer coupler. Subtract the two to get your height difference. Given the tire size and the lift, the truck will be taller...

    The Curt # C45900 is not cast. It is constructed of a solid piece of 2x2 inch steel bar stock welded to the channel mount.

  • What Hitch Ball Size is Needed to Tow a Hi-Lo Towrite 22T Trailer
    The hitch ball size of your Hi-Low Towrite 22T depends on the model year. In the 90's it appears they used to use 2 inch hitch balls and then moved to 2-5/16 inches. All of the models from that point have a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball.
