Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" - C13203

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (145 Customer Reviews)

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

2020 Chevrolet Colorado

I gave this 5 stars because Curt hitches are always excellent. However mine arrived with both ends sticking out of the box and the finish compromised down to bare metal in several spots. I blame part of this on less than adequate packaging especially if shipping UPS. I doubt if I’m the first person this has happened to so I would say be prepared to some painting unless you don’t mind a rusty hitch.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you. I recommend touching up the affected areas with a rust resistant paint which you will then have on hand for regular hitch maintenance.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 06/07/2022


Hitch is well made, but has a problem. You have to remove factory support that goes between frame and mounting bolts. This leaves the hitch approx. 1/8 inch to wide on each side. I corrected this by shimming with large diameter washers. Hitch should be approx 1/4 inch narrow. If you install it with out spacers, you will have to really tighten it in order to bend the mounting brackets flat against the frame.

The factory support is actually reinstalled after the hitch is installed. The hitch mounts to the frame and there shouldnt be any need for the washers. I am attaching a link to an installation video.
-- Etrailer Expert Thomas M - 01/05/2022


The hitch arrived quickly and in good shape and was easy to install. The service from etrailer is outstanding.


Installed my new hitch this morning, wasn't too hard to do. Impact wrench to remove the 4 bolts facing the floor, and a breaker bar and ratchet handle to remove the side bumper bolts. Got a couple extra hands to hold the bumper in place so I could remove the bolts and removed the bumper hitch. This hitch doesn't utilize the side bumper bolts so I reinstalled them and got the new hitch inlace and started the 4 bolts. I must say, it is a heavy duty well built hitch, much heavier that the one I removed. Snugged up all 8 bolts and torqued them to 126 Lb Ft.

2017 Chevrolet Colorado

I received this hitch much earlier than expected.....great shipping....My son and I took on this project today.....I'm 67 and my son is will need some young are just DIY people......we watched the vids and we had no problem....our problem was we were just using hand tools.....breaker bars and ratchets.....this is labor intensive with hand tools, but not bad...just be ready to take a break......our only problem was the spare tire bar......DO lower the spare and loosen all the bolts .......we did have to manipulate the bumper to get all the bolts to line up but wasn't much of a problem.....they say DIY should take about 1 hour or more....we did it in and hour and a half....and we took a break in between to hydrate....I'm in deep S. Texas....all in all....pretty easy peasy with the right tools and at least two guys.


The toughest part of installation was removing existing side crossmember bolts.
However they did come out and the new hitch lined up perfect.


It looks great and is functional also. I installed it myself. With the instructions provided with it, the hitch fits great and was easily installed. The service was great also, no problem with ordering and receiving it.

2015 Chevrolet Colorado

Great product and fit for my husband's 2015 Chevy Colorado Z71. Good price point along with free shipping. Would definitely recommend this product.


Poor packing, and the hitch busted through the box during shipping and the hitch has scratches on it.

Customer service will reach out to you. Cover any bare metal with anti-corrosive paint to keep rust away. There are more tips in this attached help article:
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 12/22/2021


Awesome product. Went on easy as advertised and fit was perfect!

Outstanding product! After one year, still works wonderfully!
Gilbert - 05/29/2022


The install was what I expected, about two hours, but I took my time. I hung the bumper with a pair of cargo straps so I didn't have to manhandle it at all. I did cut some pieces off the old cross member to act as shims to fill in between the bumper mount and the frame since the hitch attached outside it all. Been very happy with it.


Haven't really used it much, but the installion went well and it seems well made.


I have the z71 Colorado with tow mode and the bigger v6 so that helps but it’s still only a mid sized truck and I’ve pulled things iSight at the upper edge of my weight limit for pullling and this hitch has never made a noise never scared me everything was me proof for putting not in I have mechanical background but I banged my head pretty good in the service so it’s easy to install. Overall absolutely satisfied with the whole experience from buying to performance. I Recommend this product highly recommend to anyone needing a hitch.

2022 Chevrolet Colorado

Hitch was of higher quality than I
Easy to install. Even though
I Installed it myself it would have been easier with another person help. All in all pleased with product.


I got my trailer hitch assembly earlier than expected and it fit perfectly the paint job looked awesome I would definitely order from them again thanks again


Hitch was so easy to install. Great customer service and very fast shipping. I love my Colorado and will purchase more accessories. Thank you


Trailer hitch was a good deal and it works great.
The installation was a little tough. Make sure you have all the tools required before starting the installation.


The hitch was easy to install and fits perfectly. No problems with the instructions as they are easy to understand. High Quality and well built. Used for trailers and a bike rack.

Still going strong! have used several times with no issues at all.
Robert - 01/22/2020


Trailer hitch went on with out to much trouble always great product and service

2017 Chevrolet Colorado

Hitch looks good and is functional. Hardest part was breaking the factory mounted bolts loose. I had to get a breaker bar. Also the Factory Crossmember has "vertical wings" where it mounts to the side of frame and the hitch does not. I had to get some large washers to re-install the bumper in order to adjust for the lack of "wings". I got this in order to mount a bicycle rack. It saves me from putting several bikes in the bed when we go to a different location

2017 Chevrolet Colorado

etrailer Team, The installation was a little hard since I am by my own and working on the floor, but the outcome is great, the same with the electric installation, easy and simple; I believe that the quality is more than good because the difference of weight in between the original and the etrailer hitch is big. In my case I am going to use it with light weight stuff.

2006 Nissan Frontier

its works too nice but I did had trouble
installing it because the bolts that came with the hitch were too big

Juan, thank you for your review. Underneath your vehicle, the frame is constantly exposed to dirt and grime that can harden over time. When this happens sometimes it will feel like the bolt will not thread into your weld nuts in the frame. The good news is you can clean out the weld nuts in your frame to get your bolts to thread. I have attached a link that will help you with this.
-- Etrailer Expert Heather A - 04/26/2018

2019 Chevrolet Colorado

Excellent product at a good price along with free fast shipping make this deal hard to beat.
A installation video along with printed instructions really helped.

Would I recommend etrailer? I bought a light package to go along with the hitch today.
And because of the competitive prices along with excellent customer service, I will , in the future, shop here again!


Well designed and good quality hitch. Easy to install,shipping was free and fast.


This trailer hitch was easy to install - great directions and video also available on YouTube.

  • Is the Spare Tire Support Bracket Removed For Installation of Curt Hitch on 2018 Chevrolet Colorado
    The spare tire support bracket is already attached to the frame of the 2018 Chevy Colorado LT so the Curt hitch part # C13203 does not come with the spare tire support bracket. Basically the installation instructions have you remove the spare tire support bracket from the existing crossmember of the frame and then reattach it to a bracket on the back of the hitch. The completed installation photos show the support bracket because it is re-installed during installation. The crossmember...

  • Will Installing a Trailer Hitch On a 2021 Chevy Colorado Void the Factory Warranty
    The installation of a trailer hitch such as the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13203 which is what I recommend for a 2021 Chevrolet Colorado will not void the factory warranty. The removal of the existing bumper support when accompanied with an aftermarket hitch will not create any issue either. I have attached an install video I did on the above hitch as well.

  • Is There a Kayak Carrier that Fits on Adarac Aluminum Series Crossbars
    I have a solution that will allow you to carry a kayak carrier on the 1-1/2 inch square crossbars of the Adarac Aluminum Series ladder racks. The Yakima HullyRoller Kayak Carrier part # Y04035 can be installed on crossbars up to 1-1/2 inches in height if you use the Universal MightyMounts # Y03590. The HullyRoller allows kayaks to sit flat on the crossbars as well.

    The correct Curt hitch for you 2018 Chevrolet Colorado is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13203. The part # C13902 is not a fit. If you need wiring use the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness part # C55774 this will give you both a 4 way flat and a 7 way round plug that will fit a wide variety of trailers.

It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

  • Hardware for Installing Curt C13203 Class III Hitch on 2021 GMC Canyon
    The Curt # C13203 Class III hitch does indeed use the existing bolts which hold the factory crossmember in place. The torque specs can change over time which is why we don't publish them, but they are listed in step # 5 of the instructions, which I've linked for you. I've also linked to an install video that you might find helpful. To install a 7-way/4 pole trailer connector, use part # HM40975-11998, I've also linked a video to that install.

  • What Weight Distribution Hitch do You Recommend for My 2016 Jayco Feather 20 XTG Travel Trailer?
    According to the specs I found on your 2016 Jayco Jay Feather 20 XTG hybrid, it has a gross towing weight rating of 4,950 pounds and a dry hitch weight of 370 pounds. These specs determine the weight capacity you need in the hitch. With these specs, a great option is the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control # EQ37060ET. Apart from the maximum tongue weight of 600 pounds and the maximum gross towing capacity of 6,000 pounds, the Eqal-i-zer comes with an impressive...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System with Sway Control for 26 foot long Trailer with 5200 lb GVWR
    For your 2015 GMC Canyon, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13203. Then for your weight distribution system to help with sag and sway, I recommend the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Clamp On # BXW0750. This system will do a very good job of controlling sway and is a better option than the Fastway system in my opinion. For a 2 inch diameter hitch ball I recommend # A-90. For a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball I recommend # 19286.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver, Ball Mount, And Wiring For 2022 Chevy Colorado
    Yes, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Class III - 2", # C13203, for your 2022 Chevy Colorado. This is a bolt on installation that requires temporary removal of bumper during installation. For wiring, I suggest the Hopkins Plug-In Simple Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Connector, # HM11141164. With this, you can easily install a 4-way trailer connector on your Chevrolet Colorado as the T-connector plugs directly into existing wiring without need to cut or splice any wires....

  • Will the Hollywood Racks Destination Accommodate a 4-Inch Fat Tire Non-Electric Bike?
    I think I have a couple options for you. Unfortunately, the Hollywood Racks Destination # HLY94FR cannot securely hold a 4-inch fat tire bike. For a 4-inch fat tire bike hitch-mounted rack, I recommend the Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack for Fat Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches # C18085-FB. The Curt 2 will give you plenty of room to mount your 4-inch fat tire into the wheel hoops. The Curt 2 also includes integrated bike locks for extra security.

  • Differences Between etrailer Brand and Curt Trailer Hitches for 2020 Chevy Colorado
    The differences between the Curt # C13203 and the etrailer branded # e98909 are primarily cosmetic. Both hitches would be mainly concealed behind the bumper, with only the receiver tube and the safety chain hooks being visible. The Curt uses a round tube crossbar with a glossy finish, the etrailer brand hitch uses a square crossbar with a matte finish. The cosmetic appearance really won't matter much as most of the hitch is concealed anyway. The Curt hitch has s higher capacity than the...

  • How To Find Out How Much Can Be Loaded On a 4x8 Utility Trailer
    The only way to determine how much you can load on a trailer is to look for the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR), which is usually on a plaque near the tongue. This figure will represent the most the trailer can weigh while fully loaded. Therefore, the weight of the trailer plus the weight of your motorcycle cannot exceed that of the trailer's GVWR. The 8" load range C tires that you have are likely rated between a 745 lbs to 935 lbs (per tire). These tires accompanied with the 2,000...
