etrailer Thanks for an Awesome product. Shipping & deliverly were quick! Hitch was well made & packaged well. Fine craftsmanship - robotic welds were flawless which made hitch line up & was perfect fit on our 2007 Murano. Supplied bolts worked well. Only thing I would suggest is throw in couple metric taps to clean threads to make install eaiser & not have to run searching all over city for metric taps Lol.. We have used it for over year now to carry our E Bikes & explore nature where our motorcycles can't go & get some physical exercise at same time. We are very Happy no complaints.

2006 Nissan Murano

My problem was that the bolt holes in the frame were rusty, and it took two an a half days to get them to accept bolts.. I never lowered my exhaust like they mentioned in the instructions, I couldn't get a wrench or socket on the bolts holding the exhaust on the right side, due to all the rust.. I used picks to clean out the holes enough to get a tap started, I had to run a tap through each hole.. I was able to slide the trailer hitch receiver over the exhaust, I had to insert a pipe in the drivers side exhaust and push down so that the hitch slipped into place.. The trailer hitch receiver fit like a glove, very impressed.. I put in the bolts, had to use a crow foot wrench to torque bolts..

2006 Nissan Murano

etrailer is the first company that I have ordered from and they had my 3 products shipped out so quick. My products arrived on time and were in perfect condition.I would definitely recommend etrailer for buying parts they are AWESOME!!!

Nissan Murano

E-Trailer...thanks for such a wonderful product..I just finished with the install of my new hitch receiver for the Nissan Murano..I did install a new muffler at the same time so the install was a snap. The shipping time was quick...very happy.

Hello and just a brief follow up on the trailer hitch for the 2007 Nissan murano... I did retorque the bolts only one time...just my cautious nature and did pull several trailers with no problems at you can tell by the pics...only basic tools were needed...thanks for a wonder product.
Robert - 08/06/2019

2003 Nissan Murano

I installed this hitch and curt electrical wire kit today. it took me and my wife about 3 hours to finish it. it was not that difficult, but it took time , as I had to remove tie down hook, etc. I removed muffler completely, I found it is easier to install the hitch with muffler completely removed.
I moved rubber muffler hanger, 2 on driver side, and 2 bolts connect muffler to pipe to catalytic converter ( circle in red in picture ).
it was easy to remove muffler.
removing bolt of tie down hook require cheater's bar , since it was tight.
I did this without lifting car, just require good socket wrench, hold muffler using floor jack while removing it. I used $15 harbour freight 1/2 drive torque wrench to tighten bolts to specification on manual. I used silicone spray oil to make rubber parts holding muffler loose, and make it easy to slight.

Nissan Murano

Receiver was a perfect fit to my '06 Murano. Only issue was with the rusted mounting in the frame on my car. Supplied bolts worked great otherwise.

On older vehicles, rust and debris may build up around the weld nuts making it difficult to install the hitch bolts. Letting lubricate sit on it overnight then doing some heavy cleaning with a wire brush is the solution. Here are some more tips:
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 11/03/2021

2007 Nissan Murano

Very happy with quick delivery, price and ease of installation. Did not have to drop the exhaust system to install so 5 bolts and 20 minutes later my hitch was installed.


One bolt hole on the drivers side was not cut properly during manufacture so it was necessary to slightly elongate the hole. Shipping was fast and it was packed well. The hitch appears to be well made with the exception of the previously mentioned.


Hitch came in pretty quick! The side with the three holes was bends inwards, so the it didn't align properly (See pic). Few swings of a sledgehammer and got it straightened out! Fit fine after that.


So far so good on installation. A previous review said that you do not have to take down the muffler and they where right!! I removed the 4 bolts on the tie down holder, sprayed all the nut holes with WD-40 and ran a small brush to remove any debris if there where any. I also made sure that the new bolts would easily finger screw into the nuts. I did this by myself and used my 2 ton jack to hold the hitch in place. I found out the hard way that in shipping , one of the flanges was bent, as I could not get two of the 3 bolts on drivers side to screw in. I gave up that night and got a good nights rest and tackled it the next morning. Not so bad unscrewing the bolts. Straightened the flange and reinstalled hitch. All bolts are accessible to use with a ratchet wrench. The installation of the wiring took longer than installing the hitch. Not bad for 71 year old guy.

Works great. Especially the pre-wired plug-in cable for trailer lights.
LEO G - 09/21/2016


Been using it for about a year and works fine. Hauled different types of loads without a problem.


Very good fit and finish of the hitch.


The products showed up in the time-frame that I had expected. They were exactly packaged as I had hoped, excellent. The online videos that Etrailer had provided about installation of the tow hitch receiver were detailed and spot-on accurate. I am very happy with the prices of the items. A very good company to purchase from regarding these type of vehicle add-ons.

Nissan Murano

The hitch was poorly packaged so the mounts got tweaked during shipping. I had to hammer it back into alignment before installation. Be sure to test align all the holes before you start to thread the bolts. The factory bolt holes were rusted out on my Nissan Murano. I bought a Helicoil kit to restore the bolt holes. That added about two hours and $45 to the installation. I had to remove my muffler for installation. It was rusted to the tail pipe, so I had to cut it free. This added another 2 hours and $12 to the installation. The install took a full day. This is a sturdy and attractive receiver once it is installed.

2007 Nissan Murano

Our new Curt hitch is awesome. It fits perfect on our '07 Murano and was easy to install. It took about an hour and I did not have to purchase any tools to complete the install. The installation video was very helpful as I did need it for reference. We use it only to transport our bikes from home to parks, but it holds up well and looks great when doing so. Thanks to we got a great hitch at a great price as well as received it in a very timely manner.

2006 Nissan Murano

I hardy ever write reviews, but I’m very happy with this product, the value for the money spent has been fantastic! I’ve already referred to a few other people who have mentioned aftermarket hitches! Thanks guys!

2010 Nissan Murano

This was a little tough for me to install on my Murano. I have an '05 SL and with being a 10 year car, the bolts that I needed to take off and lower the exhaust were badly rusted. And holeswhere the hitch bolts attach were very rusted and corroded as well. In short I had to cut the muffler off to attach the hitch receiver. I towed my first trailer 11/23/2014 and I have no complaints. As for my muffler, meh, i will just buy a new one. No big deal. The videos helpd a great deal for installation. Good Job!!!

2007 Nissan Murano

I purchased a Curt hitch and wiring harness. Quality of welds, powder coating, and fit were very good. It was great to be able to purchase a product tailor made for my vehicle. Shipping was immediate and on schedule.

The video installation demonstrations were clear and perfect. I installed the unit in an afternoon with no difficulties.


The hitch is perfect. everything i needed to install it came with it and the videos on the site were very helpful when installing the wiring. The install was a little rough, but that was the car's fault not the hitch's! Showed up on time with no damage. no complaints!


The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Item # 13571 was easy to install, 30 minutes, the directions were clear and concise. The unit performs as advertised.

2012 Nissan Murano

The hitch was delivered within two days and was perfectly packaged. The fit of the hitch itself is perfect although I would caution anyone who does the installation themselves on a Murano that is several years old that you will require a 12 mm fine thread tap since the pre-threaded holes are full of grime and rust. Without first cleaning out the holes with a tap there is no way to get the screw in the holes.
I've since ordered a 5 bike hitch carrier from e-trailer which also arrived within 48 hours and works great.

Ford Transit Connect

Trailer hitch was sprung a little during transit. Customer service was excellent in helping me figure it out. I didn't have to lower the exhaust system for install. The curt t wiring harness made the wiring easier. Can be done by any DIY person.
So far an excellent product.


This is the 3rd hitch I have bought from I love the products etrailer offers. I have also bought a bike rack from them!
This hitch looks AWESOME and fits perfectly without any modifications. Well aside from removing the factory tow "hook" from the frame, install was perfect fit.
Thanks Again!



The product appears to be of good quality material. In towing a trailer there have been no issues. My only concern was when completing the install, one mounting bolt would not line up with the vehicle frame. Even with that minor issue, with everything torqued to specs, there have been no issues.

2006 Nissan Murano

Relatively easy install. Opted to lower the exhaust - only a few bolts, and access to the hitch mounting bolts was much easier. The hitch itself had some small issues with the flange bolt holes aligning with the frame - a bit out outward bending was needed to be able to start the front bolts. But overall a good fit done in about 45 minutes.

  • Is a Square or Round Tube Trailer Hitch Stronger for a 2006 Nissan Murano
    No matter how a hitch is constructed, round or square, they are all built for and tested for a certain capacity based on many factors. Two different hitches, one with a round tube and one with a square tube, that have the same capacity will be equally as strong. They have to be to reach the rating they are given. With that said I am of the opinion that square is stronger in the long run. Any of the hitches we carry for the 2006 Nissan Murano are rated for 3,500 pounds gross trailer weight...
