I check the mounting holes and they were blocked up, so I sprayed wd40 in there and scrubbed the holes with a small wire brush. Made the holes were and easy to screw the bolts in. Mounted the receiver hitch by myself and torqued it down. Really like it, may use it for other things besides the bike.

2015 Toyota Corolla

It wasn't until after I installed this unit that I read in the product literature that a stabilizer strap is required for all non-trailer (wheel-less) loads. I bought the hitch to receive a platform bike rack so I wouldn't have to be strapping things to the vehicle. I will be replacing this with a Draw-Tite hitch, which doesn't require stabilizing straps. Because I installed it, I could no longer return it. I feel that the detail about the straps should be on the product web page and not just on the pdf of the product literature.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you. We do have the strap available on our site. It is part # 18050

2015 Toyota Corolla

I had picked this brand in particular because one of my friends uses this brand on his car. This is a very well built, sturdy, and clean finished hitch. It came in well packaged and with all the necessary hardware secured and not rattling around. The installation was easy as it was shown on their instructional videos (I even skipped a step i found unnecessary and was still able to install the hitch by myself). The 1.25 hitch was perfect for installing my new bike rack. I'd definitely get this brand hitch again and will refer Curt and the whole etrailer process for purchasing a hitch. A what looked to me a complicated process was made easy with etrailers

After a year, its still holding strong. I even got rear-ended with my bike rack attached. The rack was damaged, but the hitch held strong and the bolts were still in place.

2015 Toyota Corolla

I hauled a small uhaul trailer with my 2015 Toyota Corolla from Eastern NY to Western CA. That’s almost 2900 miles. I didn’t have a single issue hauling that kind of weight with my car. I didn’t install it myself, but having it professionally installed was easy as pie and hooking the trailer up to the hitch was simple enough for an amateur. If I ever had to buy a hitch again, I’d use etrailer in a heartbeat

2014 Toyota Corolla

I ordered this hitch for my 2014 Corolla for use with my Swagman XC bike rack. I am pleased with the quality of this hitch, it is much heavier duty than I expected. It bolted up easily with the supplied hardware and looks great. Hardly noticeable. The bike rack fits perfectly. Now I am ready to hit the trails.

I use the hitch for my bike rake. The hitch was super easy to install and looks good on the car. I have recommended your site to several others.

The product is very good quality. I haven’t installed it yet but it looks like a good fit with good parts. is a very organized service with friendly, excellent customer service. I will order from this site going forward whenever I need parts for my car.

2009 Toyota Corolla

Just installed the hitch 2 days ago and used it for the first time yesterday. It is extremely well made and very solid. Everything lined up perfectly to fit my 2009 Corolla and installation was a breeze. All hardware is included. I used a 1-1/4 In. To 2 In. Hitch Adapter for my bike rack and it worked great.

2011 Toyota Corolla

It looks great and feels strong. the problem was I got the wrong receiver size for the hitch I have. hopefully I can work with etrailer and get the right one so I can leave a proper review!

Unfortunately, we only have the inch and a quarter hitch receiver for your 2011 Toyota Corolla. If you want an adapter to add a 2 inch bike rack or other accessory you can purchase item # MT70032

but please note, this does not increase the maximum tongue weight of 200lbs. A stabilizing strap item # 18050

This is a solid hitch that was easy to install and it has worked well. We primarily use it for a hitch mount bike rack.


This hitch fits like a glove and looks and feels like a quality hitch. Mounted and ready to go in less than 10 minutes. The bolt holes in the frame of most vehicles will have a small amount of paint on the threads. If you start the bolts and then remove before mounting hitch it will save a lot aggravation as starting the bolts can sometimes take effort when paint and road grime are present. I learned this mounting another hitch. A small amount of WD-40 doesn’t hurt either. Shipping was lightening fast, arriving the next day- yes less than 24 hours ( I do live in the same state but nonetheless it takes a staff on the move to get items out the door as quick as etrailer. ) Another great experience with this company.

I see that youre using an adapter so your 2 inch bike rack will work in your Class I hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver. Please be aware that an adapter will lower the tongue weight capacity of the hitch maximum amount of downward force that can safely be applied by half, from 200 to 100 lbs. This means that the weight of the bikes plus the rack that carries them should not exceed 100 lbs. It looks like youre using a 3-bike rack. The hitch and bike rack manufacturers agree that no more than 2 bikes should be carried on a rack used in a Class I hitch, due to its lower tongue weight capacity. That third bike places a lot of additional leverage further away from the vehicle, which can result in the rack, hitch or the attachment point between the hitch and vehicle to be damaged.

Arrived before estimated date. Fit perfectly, bolted right up to my 2018 Toyota carolla sedan.

2016 Toyota Corolla

The hitch receiver was exactly what I needed for my Corolla. The installation was exactly as the video described. The threads on my car's frame were a little rusty, being 6 years old now, so I had to run a m12 x 1.25 tap through the threads on the vehicle to clean them out. The bolts went right in, and they even specify torque in the kit instructions. This will be great for towing my small trailer.


Its my 6th hitch I've bought from etrailer. Each has been a perfect fit, and bolts right up in about 20 minutes. Took me longer to find my tools in the garage then it did to put it on.
No problems as usual, and looks sharp.
If you are putting it on a car with road miles, be sure to clean out the factory bolt holes a bit. Quite a bit of road debris in mine

2007 Toyota Corolla

Quality construction. Came with the bolts and locking washers. Directions were clear and included the bolt torque specification. Would recommend to my friends.

2005 Toyota Corolla

folks this is how a business is supposed to be ran. as soon as the order was placed i received an email from George J at e trailer with phone number to contact the company and a link to track the product. the product was very well made and fit properly .the snap on wires for the trailer was super good no cutting wires on your vehicle so my review is very good products very very good service thanks

the trailer hitch and wiring are both working well for us after about a years use . after having this thing for awhile i find it is just what i needed . i like the fact that when it is not being used the wiring goes in the trunk out of the weather .

Fits exactly on 2007 Toyota Corolla, very easy to install 4 bolts and conical washers then torque it to 86ft/lb that’s it

2007 Toyota Corolla

Perfect alignment with installation holes on my 2007 Toyota Corolla. I did have to buy 7/16" fine thread bolts as the M12 that came with the hitch didn't work. But upon obtaining right fit bolts, it took 10 to 15 minutes to install. I am absolutely pleased with the hitch.

The hitch manufacturer prefers for you to use the hardware that comes with the hitch. It sounds like the weld nuts needed to be cleaned out to allow the hardware to be used. We do have a FAQ that gives great pointers on the best way to do so. We have nylon brushes like part # 814092
Nylon Tube Brush - 1/2"
that will help.

The item arrived quite damaged. It looks like I was sent a used trailer hitch. The return process is a headache although their customer service people were nice.


Fast amazing service and shipping! Really like the fit and finish, nice thick saftey chain loops and the re enforcing ring around the receiver tube is nice. The hardest part of this instalation was cleaning out the holes in the car frame (12 year old car), but after that, it was a 10 minute job. Very pleased with the hitch AND etrailer service!

2015 Toyota Corolla

Ex stream lt fast free shipping. Ordered on Saturday. Received on Tuesday Best price I could find. Product fit like a glove. Took 15 minutes to install. I got this trailer hitch for a bike rack in my daughters 2015 corolla.

Volvo Cross Country

Had it for one year for my bike rack. Has survived several cross country trips.

2005 Toyota Corolla

The product arrived in three days from order. Being in a rural area you can't beat that.

Installation was simple and straight forward. There was nothing to remove on my 2005 Corolla and only minor was cleaning of the threaded holes was required. There is limited clearance under this car for installation so the biggest challenge was getting the first bolt started near the exhaust pipe as the location of the pipe makes it almost impossible get you hand in there to start the bolts. A 6" or so extension is a must. I used a 1/2" ratchet with a 1/2"-3/8" adapter, 6" extender, and long 19mm socket. The directions recommend 9" extension, but this was plenty. The other requirement is a torque wrench. 86 ft/lbs isn't a challenge for lug nuts, but with the extension and awkward position it requires some strength. I was surprised at how far I was from the torque spec with the 1/2" ratchet.

On the ground installation estimate of 30 minutes is accurate without rushing. On a lift this would be a cinch.

This is a nice, well built, sturdy product, and as a final perk it is Made in America.


Delivery was prompt and as promised, installation of the actual hitch was as is it as installing 4 bolts, there was really nothing to it the only mistake I made was to try and install it on my own, I recommend not to try it, it's a lot easier with someone helping you keeping it level while you put that 1st bolt after that help is really not needed.

Overall a great experience buying from etrailer, great product, excellent communication from the time you place the order to the time you get your product.

The hitch was purchased to install a bike rack and carry a couple bikes on it, at this time I have not tried to install a rack or carry any bikes once I actually use it I might be back for and update, overall I like it so far.

Some pictures are attached.

Toyota Corolla

This hitch works beautifully. I have most certainly loaded it to capacity and put it through it's paces now over the last year. It will definitely handle the advertised load. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars, is that it changes the way my car looks pretty substantially. I really love the way my corolla looked before the hitch and it is just a bit bulkier than I would like with the hitch on it. It would be nice if it had a more discrete profile.


It fit like the instruction indicated, but my old car required some hard core weld bolt cleaning, tapping and drilling. It was a good learning experience for me since I got to use some of the tools that were not normally used on auto repair. I am ready for my next Curt's hitch and thinking about going big next time once I purchase something big enough to put the hitch on!
