This fully welded trailer hitch receiver bolts onto your vehicle's frame with no welding required. Powder coated steel is sturdy and corrosion resistant.


Bought this for my 2016 BMW X5. Exceptionally low price for the quality of the product. Fitment was excellent and the hitch sits up high and close to the bumper cover but remains easy to access. Value was a 10/10.

2012 BMW X5

Let me start by saying that represents a masterclass in customer service. They have a complete package from a user friendly and ACTUALLY informative website, backed by competent ACTUAL people who communicate well AND know their products with a level of passion that makes them ACTUALLY helpful. I know, right? If every company was like these guys, could you imagine how much global stress would be reduced??!!? Anyway, onto the product, The Curt Trailer Hitch installed and operated EXACTLY as described on the website, and on the installation video on the Only time will tell whether the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver lasts, but I'm gambling that if the product is backed by a company like, then it's probably going to be a reliable product.



The product continues to be fabulous! Sadly, I had to sell the 2012 X5. Hope the next owner gets to enjoy the trailer hitch! Its legit.


The Hitch assembly is SOLID! Perfect fit for a F15 BMW X5. Self installed followed the Etrailer video which greatly assisted with the installation. However, definitely requires moderate experience, removal of the rear bumper required patience due to all the clips and securement. It is recommended to use a plastic molding removal tool set to carefully remove bumper as not to damage paint and trimmings.

2018 BMW X5

God product from Curt, and etrailer did a phenomenal job on the installation video. The paper instructions enclosed from Curt were not even worth it. I would suggest instead of trying to drill out the blank rivets with tires on, just snipping them off. Took a few hours with one person, but just take your time as not to snap something. Would recommend buying etrailer!

2016 BMW X5

Superb first time experience. I was going to buy on another online retailer But it was about 5$ more. Then When I read Reviews, negative about the way it was shipped. Not here with etrailer, see photos. Great packaging and not a scratch! After the detailed video of how to install, plus written and PDF, I had to purchase from here. I also, picked up the ball and receiver package. Lowest price and awesome quality. I will not hesitate to buy from here for any future accessories needed. Bike carry back on the vehicle and off we will go to bike the trails now! Super thanks


Fairly straight forward installation, the hardest part is removing the bumper cover. And it wasn't hard as much as it was kinda scary as you have to be rough to get it off, but you soon as you get pass the fear of damaging anything, its a breeze. I looks like it belongs. If I have one gripe, the nuts included in the kit are a gold color and they standout if you look through the cracks. (Probably my OCD)



The hitch is performing as advertised, I’m not sure if its an option, but some rubber isolating washers would be a big help. When carrying an empty trailer, it can be unexpectedly loud, things quite down once loaded.

Hmm that is strange.. the hitch shouldn't be making any noise if the hardware is properly torqued down to spec. More than likely you are hearing your empty trailer bouncing around back there. If you are experiencing a lot of sway when unloaded you may consider getting a friction control arm like part # 17200. Otherwise, a little bounce and noise is to expected with an empty trailer.



It is the empty trailer, but an empty trailer on an American SUV, is Isolated, think its rubber washers of some type


Product is exactly as advertised. Fits perfectly on my 2018 BMW X5. It took my dad and I a little less than 3 hours to install it. Bike rack fit perfectly in the hitch. A++

2016 BMW X5

Great product ! Excellent website . Fast shipping . Excellent installation video!!!!!

2016 BMW X5

Great product , I installed it without any issues, videos displayed on etrailer website are superb and exact. I got the product fast, only observation would be to check packing, when I got it delivered the cardboard box was all ripped , fortunately product was intact. I recommend this product for sure.

2012 BMW X5

Perfect Fit, and 10 times better looking than OEM hitch. Had to cut small slot in bumper (per instructions) but essentially invisible.

Installed on 2012 E70 X5 35i with M-Sport package

2012 BMW X5

Came out great. No complaints at all.. would definitely buy again. Have already pulled/ carried stuff that exceeds 9,500lbs with no issues..

2013 BMW X5

It took a while to receive the hitch due to COVID-19 but finally arrived. I used the installation video from the website and it was the same car as mine. Removing the bumper I took my time and followed step by step on the video. I tend to brake stuff when I rush. Installing the hitch was easy. I made the cut on the bumper 2.5” instead of 2.25” as stated because it was sitting better and less pressure on the bumper. Reinstalling the bumper was just the reverse of taking it off. I really appreciate the included push pins for the flares vs rivets. I had actually gone out to purchase a rivet gun but didn’t need to use it. The whole process took about 2 hrs.

2018 BMW X5

This is my 3rd Curt hitch install on a BMW X. Generally easy installation. Take your time. If you don't have trim tools, buy a quality set. Watch the excellent video and pay attention to the little things like how you can suspend the tailgate half-open (I used a bungee, they used a ratchet strap). Read the instructions...the order of the steps is slightly different...good perspective). Drill the third rivet in each wheel well (requires picking up some extra plastic rivets (BMW 51777171004). No fascia trim required on my '18 X5 50i MSport.



Still a great hitch. Ive used it to tow my boat and to hold a bike rack. Life is good!

2015 BMW X5

Just finished the install of the trailer hitch on my 2015 X5. Ordering was east, delivery was fast, and the included written directions and the available installation video was excellent. It took a couple of hours to install and the best news is that I didn’t have to modify or cut any part of the rear bumper at all. The hitch looks like it came with the car!

2018 BMW X5

Video instructions are top notch and easy to follow! Hitch fit perfect just as advertised. One person installation in just under two hours. It did require purchase of two additional push pins as 6 were required and only four provided. Certainly recommend


I read the E70 M Sport would not accept a hitch without major surgery to the skirts, and saw some real butcher jobs. Well, I needed a hitch so I ordered this Curt. Very time consuming installation, but not difficult. Minimal cutting required and a very neat install.
Recommended A-1!


Easy to install on the BMW X6 M F86. I had it for over a year and it is holding great. I use it to pull my 6x10 trailer


The hitch is so quality , my husband installed it and it looks great. It took longer then he wanted it to because the BMW X5 isn’t an easy vehicle. We like the hitch very much.

2011 BMW X5

Easy to install. Great video instructio ns.

2007 BMW X5

This is absolutely best hitch on market, 100% safe and fits just like OEM. Thanks to videos and instructions I was able to install myself in less then an hour.


The Curt 13077 hitch feels really heavy-duty, thick metal, very sturdy, and Made in the USA. The item shipped in good packaging and arrived without a scratch. The installation instructions made available by the etrailer crews on YouTube are excellent (these videos actually is the reason I bought from etrailer instead of other places),The Curt product and etrailer are both deserved all stars!!!


Exactly as advertised, and instruction videos by etrailer were very helpful as well.


This kit was great and functions exactly as intended. With the help of the online video it was easy to install, even for people without any electrical knowledge.

My only advice is:
1) watch the video and the hitch installation video at the same time. This will help you plan ahead and not re-install parts during the hitch installation, that will need to be removed for the harness installation
2) be VERY careful about selecting the right wires, by using the testing tool eTrailer provides. In the install video for my BMW X5, the technician referenced a yellow and black wire when making the initial connection. He later goes on to make a separate connection for a black and yellow wire. To the novice they look nearly identical. I confused the two wires and had to re-do this, but would not have been an issue if I had understood the distinction and used the testing tool, as recommended in the instructions
3) be careful about placing all connectors so that they face in the same direction. Does not impact function, but makes for a neater install when complete.

I could not be happier about how this project turned out, and credit etrailer with all of the success. It has a very OEM look, and etrailer made the entire project doable for me through their great suite of videos and excellent Customer service. I wish every retailer could be this good!

2010 BMW X5

Has been working great! Installation was very reasonable. The supporting materials on the website were great and the price was good too. My install was on a 2010 BMW X5.

On my particular model, the recommended trimming the bumper cover in the center to allow clearance for the hitch receiver part - so I trimmed it to the specs given then put it all back together and realized it was have cleared without trimming at all, so if you have the same setup try without trimming (it sucks though, because you would need to fully reattach the bumper cover to check, then possibly take it all back off to trim, but it may be worth it if you want to try to get away without trimming).

2014 BMW X5

Fit perfectly. Videos were 100% accurate in details given. Delivered when expected. 5 star rating easily earned!

  • Higher Capacity Trailer Hitch that Fits 2017 BMW X5
    For your 2017 BMW X5 we have the higher rated Curt hitch part # 13077 that you referenced which can tow trailers up to 6,000 lbs and has a 600 lb tongue weight rating. This would work great and would allow you to tow up to your full vehicle weight capacity.

  • Does Bumper Beam Have to Be Removed When Installing Curt Hitch on 2016 BMW X5

  • Is The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Rated For Weight Distribution On 2013 BMW X5
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13077 for the 2013 BMW X5 does have a weight distribution rating so it can be used with weight distribution according to Curt. The tongue weight rating of the hitch is the same 600 lbs with or without the use of weight distribution. Yes, the included rivet pins that are provided with the hitch will fit the 2013 BMW X5. I have attached a video of an install on the 2013 BMW X5. He uses the included rivet pins at the 11:50 time stamp of the video.

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch Fit a 2017 BMW X5 with M Sport Package
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13077 will fit on your 2017 BMW X5 with the M Sport Package, but you will need to cut the rear fascia for it to fit. Attached is an install video we did of this hitch on a 2017 X5 but it didn't have the M Sport Package. We did have someone else install this on an X5 with the M Sport Package and I'm attaching the photo they sent in for you to check out. Let me know what you plan on using the trailer hitch for and I can make some recommendations as necessary.

  • Is There Fascia Trimming Required to Install Curt Hitch part # 13077
    I checked with Curt and for the 2016 BMW X5 they still recommend fascia trimming to install the Curt Hitch part # 13077. Because of the cut out area in the fascia that is there currently it may not be as severe though.

  • Is There Trimming Required to Install Curt Hitch on 2016 BWW X6
    On your 2015 BMW X6 you would need to do the same amount of trimming that you see in the install video for the Curt hitch part # 13077 that you referenced. Some would say the trimming is noticeable from the rear of the vehicle but you really would have to look very closely and sit pretty low to see it. The hitch would sit somewhat recessed behind the bumper. It would not protrude past it at all.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2016 BMW X5 with M Sports Package
    You'd want the Curt hitch part # 13077 which actually fits the 2016 BMW X5 models that have the M package as well as the ones without the package. Since you aren't totally sure if you have the M package the hitches are referring to this for sure would work since it fits both styles and even with that not factored this is still the best hitch for your vehicle so it's the way to go. It's mostly hidden, has plenty of towing capacity, and also installs pretty easy too.

  • Curt VS Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver Fitment For a 2015 BMW X5 xDrive 35d M Sports Model
    The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75600 will not fit the M model of your 2015 BMW X5 due to the exhaust differences between the models. The M model moves the exhaust inward and also adds an additional exhaust tip on each side. Due to the lower cross tube on the Draw-Tite it will not fit properly with the exhaust. Since the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13077 positions the cross tube higher it will fit without the exhaust issue.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Hitch Install Where Holes Dont Line Up
    We see this on occasion and while its super frustrating the issue is that the hitch got bent in shipping and that's why the holes don't line up. If you can find like an open stairwell or some other way to use leverage to bend it back that is totally fine. As long as the paint doesn't flake or creases don't develop the hitch is fine to use. I attached a help article on this for you to check out as well.

    The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75600 does retain use of the factory impact structure bar, you would remove the impact bar during installation but then the impact bar would be put back in place. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13077 does take the place of the impact structure, the hitch would then provide the support and safety the impact bar once did. They both have 2" receiver openings, 600 pound tongue weight and 6000 pounds for trailer weight. Either hitch will work...

    The installation of a trailer hitch such as the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13077 which is what I recommend for a 2014 BMW X5 will require you to remove the rear bumper fascia which does house the reverse sensors. That said, the sensors themselves will not be removed rather left on the bumper. In order to free the rear bumpier fascia however you must remove a pigtail which contains the circuits for the reverse sensors but this is very easy to do. I have attached an install video...

They were unable to tell me exactly what the fitment issue was, just that when this was test fit it did not fit.

  • 2-Inch Trailer Hitch for 2017 BMW X5 M Version
    Curt 2-inch Class III hitch # 13077 is a confirmed fit on all versions of the 2017 BMW X5, including the M version. I confirmed this with Curt. Mounting it on this vehicle will be fairly involved as hitch installs go, and significant trimming of the rear fascia is required. All non-trailer loads - bike racks, cargo carriers and so forth - should be supported with stabilizing strap # 18050. Failure to properly support these loads will void your hitch warranty from CURT.

    Yes, you are correct. Curt's # 13077 instructions state to discard the steel bumper beam and fasteners while the Draw-Tite # 75600 has you reinstall them. For this reason, I would highly recommend the Draw-Tite hitch over the Curt hitch for your 2012 BMW X5.

  • Does Install of Curt Trailer Hitch on 2017 BMW X5 Require Programming from Dealer
    When installing a trailer hitch on your 2017 BMW X5 like the Curt # 13077 there would be no programming required from a BMW dealer. This would be more common with trailer wiring that integrates into the vehicle's wiring but the kits we offer like the # 119250KIT do not need this either. So basically only OEM style wiring would require the programming.
