Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" - C11564

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (7 Customer Reviews)

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


Installation was pretty straight forward, I’ve had zero issues with the hitch, works as it should.


The paint finish makes it blend with the valance so it looks nice. Additionally, you don't really need to make a big cut to the bumper valance as shown in the instructions, you can see in the pictures what I mean.

I'll basically use it for a bike rack, so far I tested the rack stationary and things looked good. If something goes wrong I'll probably come back to update this review. If not then it means it all worked great.

2016 Volkswagen Golf

Very simple and easy installation. The paper instructions that came with the package and the installation video on the website made it a no-brainer. I can’t attest to its function yet, I plan on ordering a cargo carrier/bag very soon. Overall, it’s very nice and inconspicuous, which is exactly what I wanted.


The product feels solid and fits nicely under the fender. The assembly is not easy and will probably require two people or two threaded studs to support everything before placing the screws.
I probably would not use this to tow anything heavier than 1500 pounds but then again you probably didn't get a golf R for its towing capacity.

  • Is Trimming Required to Install Hitch on 2018 Volkswagen Golf R
    There is some fascia trimming required to install Curt hitch # C11564 on your 2018 Volkswagen Golf R. Take a look at the diagram included in the installation instructions that I attached. It's right from the install details and shows how much trimming is needed. There needs to be a 2-1/2 inch by 3-1/2 inch notch cut for the receiver tube to drop down from behind the bumper. The diagram is showing the fascia under the bumper as if you're underneath the car looking up. Notice the exhaust...

  • Trailer Hitch Appearance on a 2017 Volkswagen Golf R
    I donot have a picture showing trailer hitch # C11564 installed on a 2017 Volkswagen Golf R, but I have an installation video of it going on a golf and I have included it. The # C11564 does have a hidden crosstube so all that you see is the receiver portion of the hitch. If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier then you have to make sure the accessory is rated for use with a Class I trailer hitch. Also, with a bike rack, you are limited to 2 bikes...

  • Trailer Hitches that Fit 2016 Volkswagen Golf TSI S
    We have a hitch from Curt that does fit your 2016 Volkswagen Golf TSI with the part # C11412 but the # C11564 only fits the R models.

  • What 2015 Volkswagen Golf Will Cirt C11564 Fit
    I wasn't able to find anything about a "Trip SE" model (which I think you meant something else but it was autocorrected), so what I can say is that the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # C11564 will fit a 2015 Volkswagen Golf R model. If you don't have the R model then you want the hitch # C11412 instead. Installation instructions have been linked for you to check out. If you have a different model just let me know and I can help you figure out what hitch will fit.

  • Concealed Cross Tube Hitch For 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI
    I do have an option for you but the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" part # C11564 is not a fit for the 2017 Volkswagen GTI. If you are looking for a concealed cross tube so the only portion of the hitch that is visible once installed is the receiver tube I recommend EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 306-X7310 which is a confirmed fit for the GTI. This is the only concealed cross tube option that is a fit for the GTI at this time (December 2019)....

  • EcoHitch vs Curt Trailer Hitch Comparison for 2016 VW Golf
    Both the EcoHitch and Curt trailer hitches fit your 2016 Volkswagen Golf and both feature similar specs. Both the Curt # C11564 and the EcoHitch # 306-X7333 feature a design that conceals the crossbar beneath the rear fascia. The EcoHitch is slightly more concealed due to the receiver being attached more closely to the crossbar than it is on the Curt hitch. They are otherwise nearly identical in terms of fit, function, and installation. I recommend the Curt hitch as it is durable and has...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2016 Volkswagen Golf R-Line TDI with Dual-Left Exhaust
    Curt confirmed their class I hitch # C11564 fits your Golf's exhaust configuration. This hitch has a 100-pound tongue weight capacity and a 2000-pound towing capacity. If your intended use is to support a hitch bike rack like # TH903202 or cargo carrier like # C18145 then this Curt hit would be a great choice for you.

  • Trailer Hitch that Fits 2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI
    We have the EcoHitch part # 306-X7375 which is a confirmed fit for your 2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI and would be what you'd want if you wanted a 2 inch hitch or the # 306-X7376 for a 1-1/4 inch hitch. The Curt hitch you mentioned is for older models of the Golf which is why it does not fit your GTI.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2016 Volkswagen Golf R
    The # 306-X7309 only fits the GTI models of the 2016 VW Golf. The equivalent hitch for your Golf R is the # 306-X7333, but this only has a 1-1/4" receiver. Unfortunately, there is not a hitch available with a 2" receiver for the R. Unless you are going to use an accessory that requires a Class II hitch, the Class I hitch from Curt # C11564 will save you some money.

  • Do Trailer Hitch Receivers for the 2016 Volkswagen Golf R Require Trimming
    We have two hitches from EcoHitch and one from Curt that fit your 2016. From EcoHitch one is a 2 inch, part # 306-X7332, and the other is a 1-1/4 inch, part # 306-X7333. I recommend the 2 inch because it's compatible with more accessories than the smaller hitch is. Both of them do require trimming to the fascia. The Curt is part # C11564 and it is also a Class I 1-1/4 hitch and also requires trimming.

  • Trailer Wiring Harness For 2016 Volkswagen Golf R
    The correct trailer wiring harness for your 2016 Volkswagen Golf R is a hardwire kit from Curt, which is the following part number: - Curt Powered Tail Light Converter with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # C59236 Since you're going to be doing some towing with your '16 VW Golf R, if you also need a hitch and ball mount, the correct fits are the following: - Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11564 - Curt Class II Drawbar # C45016 - 1-7/8" Hitch Ball # C40001 or 2" Hitch Ball # C40018 - Pin...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2015 VW Golf Type R
    I'll start off by addressing your first question; yes, the Curt # C11564 is a confirmed fit on your 2015 VW Golf type R. When it comes to choosing between the EcoHitch # 306-X7333 and the Curt, you'll find that the EcoHitch is just a little bit more hidden than the Draw-Tite hitch-but they're both technically concealed cross-tubes; the 2" EcoHitch # 306-X7332 will also be more hidden than the Draw-Tite since both EcoHitches are installed the same way. I generally feel like choosing a 2"...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver, Wiring and Bike Rack For a 2022 Volkswagen Golf R
    You will need the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11564 for your 2022 Volkswagen Golf R. The Receiver # C11412 will only fit the GTI trims for your model year. Draw-Tite recommends the Drawbar # C45521 used in the rise position with either a 1-7/8" # 19256 or 2" # 19258 hitch ball. The T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118646 will give you a 4-way flat connector. This connector will allow you to operate the lights on most small trailers as well as use Auxiliary Lights # C53201 with any hitch...
