Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" - C11227

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (11 Customer Reviews)

Perfect for light-duty towing, this custom, vehicle trailer hitch receiver features fully welded, gloss powder coated steel construction. Drawbar sold separately.


I had to take a tap to my mounting holes since they were very rusty, but after that this hitch went on no problem! I use it with my Kuat NV and take it mountain biking


Perfect fit for my 1997 Toyota Celica without needing to modify the bumper cover. The hitch bolted right in and works great. Also, eTrailer was a great value almost half the price as my local hitch shop for the hitch plus installation. Great experience and I will be a return customer!


The Class I hitch installed easily. Directions were clear and easy to follow. I use it to carry a bike rack. It has worked well so far, and it it proves sturdy and reliable I would give it an "excellent" rating.

Very well. I also bought another hitch from etrailer for a Dodge Caravan, installed it myself, works great.

1995 Toyota Celica

Easy install with the help of a friend. Installed on a 1995 Celica ST. We did not have to cut any trim, but because of the tight space between the frame and the spare tire wheelwell, we had to hack off a few threads of one of the bolts.
Overall, I found this hitch receiver to hold up to its promises and install reasonably well, given the type of vehicles it is designed for.

1994 Toyota Celica

Received everything what was in descrip tion.

1991 Toyota Corolla

Works great, installed easily, price was right!



Fits perfect. Easy to install. Just as advertised.


I rec'd the product as advertised.


fit perfect thanks guys

  • Will Curt Hitch part # C11227 Fit a 1997 Celica GT Convertible
    The trailer hitch part # C11227 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your 1997 Toyota Celica GT convertible and would work well. You would want to check to make sure there are 12 mm threaded holes in the bumper beam of your vehicle. If so, this hitch will fit and not require any drilling. There may be a tiny bit of fascia trimming but it wouldn't be noticeable.

  • Does Curt Hitch # C11227 Fit 1992 Toyota Celica
    For your 1992 Toyota Celica the Curt hitch part # C11227 is a confirmed fit. We don't have an install video at this time but we do have the install instructions that state that the hitch is designed to bolt up to the weld nuts on the rear bumper beam. It says also that the "area must be clear for bracket to fit directly against metal bumper". Sounds like you'll need to trim the fascia like what the next step of the instructions mention.

    Though there is not a custom trailer hitch made for your 1999 Lexus LS 400 you can still haul your bikes using The Thule Gateway Pro 2 Bike Rack # TH88VR. This trunk bike rack can carry up to 2 bikes weight 35 pounds per bike. The rack has a sturdy steel frame that has a powder coat finish which makes it durable and rust resistant.

  • Hitch and Hitch-Mount Cargo Carrier for 1995 Toyota Celica GTS Convertible
    The one trailer hitch fit I can confirm for your 1995 Toyota Celica GTS Convertible is for a light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class I type, but not for a 2-inch hitch. 2-inch hitches are medium duty that can be rated either as Class III, IV or V. I suggest you have a look at the linked articles on hitch sizes and classes to make sure of exactly what is installed on your Celica before choosing a cargo carrier. The weight limit for what you can carry on your Celica will be a function of the hitch capacity...

  • Installation Tips and Bolt Thread Size for the Curt Trailer Hitch # 11227 on a 1992 Toyota Corolla
    The bolts included with the Curt Trailer Hitch # 11227 are M12 - 1.25 x 40mm hex. All of the hardware included with this hitch is listed in the installation instructions, see link. On older vehicles it is a good idea to clean the threads with a wire brush, see video demonstration. The Battery Post and Terminal Cleaner, # DW00254, is a good choice for this purpose. Since your vehicle is a 1992 model, you may need to use a tap or make one. Using a identically sized bolt you can create your...

  • How to Determine if Curt Trailer Hitch # 11227 Will Fit a 1989 Toyota Corolla
    First, you will need to make sure that your 1989 Toyota Corolla has 2 sets of 12mm threaded holes on the bottom and side (towards the front of the vehicle) of the bumper beam. Given the age of the vehicle, the holes are probably a bit corroded. If you find you do have the holes, you will need to clean them out so the bolts for the hitch will fit. I have included a link to a video showing how to clean them out for you to view. I have incldued a link to the installation instructions Curt...

  • What is the Correct Ball Mount for Curt Trailer Hitch C11227 on a 1994 Toyota Celica ST
    This is actually a lot easier to determine than you might think. With any Class I or II trailer hitch you will need to use the ball mount recommended in the hitch instructions. The use of any other ball mount can result in voiding the hitch warranty. The reason is that on Class I and II hitches the ball mount recommended has been tested for and approved for use as the best option for those hitch and vehicle combinations. For trailer hitch # C11227 the recommended ball mount is # C45503....
