Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" - C13205

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (258 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.


Perfect for my bike rack and small trailer. I had to use a steel tap to clean out the bolt holes on my car, but after that the install went smoothly.


The entire 'etrailer' experience was GREAT.
selected the proper product, read previous customer reviews, and placed the order. The hitch arrived in a few days.
Five bolts and 12 minutes later, the unit was installed on my 2020 Nissan Murano, WITHOUT any special tools, additional labor, or modifications.
I'm 70 years old and did this in my own garage.
Completely satisfied 'etrailer'customer.

The trailer hitch receiver is as if it were a factory-installed item. It is as advertised... Quality and fitment are terrific.


One year after buying the hitch and bike rack it is still looking brand new like it’s out of the box. It holds four bikes perfectly. I store it indoors. And it’s a little heavy to carry back-and-forth but I couldn’t be happier with the purchase.


Thankfully previous reviews and information on the etrailer site were available for assistance. I needed to utilize a suggestion to expand the hitch receiver utilizing a 2x4 and car jack in order to align one of the holes. What started as a struggle became rather simple with the information found. The receiver was a perfect fit and has been a great accessory to our 2017 Nissan Murano.


Installed the receiver and harness connector today by myself and it was so easy. Took 1 hour to do both. No problems getting the receiver in place. I didn’t have to jack up the vehicle, there was enough room to just lay on a blanket and get to work. The harness for trailer lights is just like the videos on this site, plug and play. The only minor issue was when replacing the fuse in the engine bay from an installed 30 amp to a 15 amp that was supplied the 30 amp fuse was different from the included one that came with the harness. The fuse from entrailer was longer where it plugs in. Thanks eTrailer, love your products and instructions.

2018 Nissan Murano

Preferred this hitch over the other two for our Nissan Murano because the slant of the ends of the horizontal piece makes the hitch less visible. Purchased it for use with a hitch mounted 4-bike bicycle rack, so no electrical wiring was needed. Very easy to install.

2017 Nissan Murano

Products fits perfectly easy to install Great installation Videos for hitch and wiring @017 Nissan Murano Platinum Didnt have to lift the Suv up 2 people install trailer hitch 10minutes Wiring kit 20 minutes Perfect Fast shipping Thank you George


The hitch reviewed on line and then purchased worked out great. It was made for my Nissan Murano, and installed all by myself in 30 minutes.

The bike rack I also purchased fit the hitch with all the vehicle clearances I needed.

Very happy.

2016 Nissan Murano

Very pleased with this hitch. Watched your videos on selection and installation and found those to be very helpful. Installation for me on my 2016 Murano Platinum was a breeze. I used a furniture dolly and blocks of wood to roll it under the car and hold it in place while I bolted her in. Looks real nice. Will use this primarily for recreation not towing.
Great Price and Fast shipping, Thanks, JJ

2018 Nissan Murano

Easy install and great product. Just needed an extra hand to start with mounting but all was very good! Wiring was also very easy to install.
Thanks etrailer!

2020 Nissan Murano

What a great product. Online videos were a great educational tool. I am 72 and my wife is 70. With the use of car ramps, we installed the hitch in about 30 minutes. Extremely pleased at how it looks. Thank you for a wonderful product.


Easy to install and works great for our bike rack!

2021 Nissan Murano

Took almost a month to receive the prod uct.


Took me about 30 minutes to install. The Nissan dealer wanted $400 for similar hitch, and another $100 to install it. I paid $xx.xx at Works like a charm.


Great product. Great installation video instructions. Speedy delivery. Best online price. Did not have a lift so self installed using my storm shelter (see pic). Torqued to 85 lbs

2020 Nissan Murano

Easy install, I used a floor jack to raise the hitch into position. Install 5 cap screws, torqued, total time to install 30 min.

2019 Nissan Murano

The item has not been installed yet, so I can’t comment on functionality. The shipping process was as advertised, not early, just on time. The item appears to be in good shape, and all the hardware is accounted for. Hoping it works as good as it looks!


Installation was easy and the hitch has held our bike rack as we wished. Great value.



After a year in service, the hitch has had no issues. All is working as expected.


This hitch fit like a glove. Very easy to install. It took me about 15 minutes to install it, alone. Very good, very well engineered product


I have used my hitch and wiring harness several times and I couldn't be happier. Whether I am towing my utility trailer or my travel trailer , I am confident with this setup.

2018 Nissan Murano

Purchased the Curt Trailer Hitch for a 2009 Nissan Murano Installed myself, and then again for my new 2018 Nissan Murano . This time my experience was a piece of cake! Worked by myself while wife handed me socket wrench and nuts to install the hitch. Only took about a half hour.
The installation for Curt Wiring Harness also when extremely smoothly compared to my experience with the 2009 Murano.
Was overwhelming enthusiastic with both installations and quality of product.
Ordering from was expeditious.

John S.


excellent hitch slides smoothly into frame no sighs of wear or tear


Just installed by myself in about 30 minutes. Perfect for my needs

2020 Nissan Murano

Easy as can be. Even in freezing temps, had it on in less then 10 minutes. Took longer to get warm after the install then install the hitch.
Fit and finish on our 2020 Nissan Murano was spot on. Design could not have been better. Fit follows the lines of the body panels.

Power coat on hitch is nice. No weld splatter or other blemishes on it. Plus at a price that can't be beat.

Best part rear gate still works hands free. Just kick to the side of the sq tube and up it does.

Pete K.


Still works great!

2017 Nissan Murano

Trailer hitch arrived,early, was packaged perfect.Absalutly shinning ,not a scratch.First time to use etrailer, very happy.Anyway put the hitch on a small jack pushed under car ,with the help of my wife.Bolted on perfect,took,3/4 of an hour.Did l tell you we are both 81years old.Ordering was easy,references was great and shipping.

Bob L.


The hitch is great ,thank you

2016 Nissan Murano

Came packed well. It took about 30 minutes to install. I used a couple of jack stands to hold it and place and zipped in the bolts with my impact gun(with an 80 ft-lbs torque rod on it) and then broke out the actual torque wrench to get it to 86 ft-lbs. I did have to hit the welded nuts with WD-40 because they were exposed but definitely a nice product and easy install.



No problems! Still works great!

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch # C13205 Affect Liftgate Sensor on a 2018 Nissan Murano
    Typically when a trailer hitch is installed on a vehicle with the automatic liftgate sensor it does not disable the sensor. It does get in the way, but you can generally still activate the liftgate by kicking to the left or right of the receiver. This is the same case for the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13205 on your 2018 Nissan Murano. I have attached an installation video of this trailer hitch on a 2017 Murano for you to reference as well. If you let me know what you will be using...

  • Does Curt Hitch for 2021 Nissan Murano Allow Automatic Liftgate to Function
    We've had customers with 2021 Nissan Muranos like yours who installed the Curt hitch part # C13205 come back and tell us that if they kicked to the sides of the hitch opening the automatic liftgate worked. I would recommend trying that.

  • Will Draw Tite Hitch for 2019 Nissan Murano Allow Hands Free Lift Gate to Function
    That's a bummer to hear that your hitch interfered with the hands free lift gate. When we installed the Draw Tite hitch part # 75952 on a 2019 Nissan Murano we were able to still trigger the lift gate by kicking to either side of the hitch opening. If you haven't tried that yet I would see if that works before buying a new hitch and sensor. As far as the new sensor working with the Draw Tite us and the dealers can't really say for sure since neither of us have tested that combination of...

  • Does Curt Hitch for 2019 Nissan Murano Affect Hands Free Liftgate
    The Curt hitch part # C13205 that fits your 2019 Nissan Murano will not interfere with the hands free liftgate feature of your vehicle. At worst you'd have to just kick to the side of the hitch opening but we and Curt have not had any complaints about the feature being lost or affected.

  • Does Curt Trailer Hitch C13205 Fit 2015 Nissan Murano AWD
    I checked with Curt just now and they list the # C13205 as a fit for all models of the 2015 Nissan Murano including the all wheel drive models so it will fit and work well for you. If you check out the picture I attached you can see the hitch installed on a similar Murano and also that there's an AWD badge on the vehicle to show that it fits this model for sure. I also attached an install video for more info as well.

  • Will Curt Class III Hitch For 2020 Nissan Murano Interfere With Hands Free Liftgate
    Great news Pete. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13205 for the 2020 Nissan Murano will only interfere with the center sensor on your bumper for the hands free lift gate feature. The sensors on either side of the hitch will still operate the hands free lift gate feature. I have attached an installation video for your reference.

  • Will Installing Trailer Hitch on 2020 Nissan Murano Keep Hands Free Liftgate From Working
    This question actually comes up quite a bit. The hitch receiver tube and safety chain plate will block the sensors located under the rear bumper in the center. However, the sensors further to the right or left will still function and allow you to utilize the hands-free feature as shown in the provided photo. If you click the provided link, you can see a video showing the hitch being installed.

  • Availability of Concealed Hitch for 2017.5 Nissan Murano
    There are only two hitches which will fit your 2017.5 Nissan Murano, the Curt # C13205 and Draw-Tite # 75952. Though neither hitch is going to be concealed, they are both underneath the bumper and are by no means the first thing that will be noticeable on your Murano. Of the two hitches, I strongly recommend the Draw-Tite # 75952 because the Curt hitch requires the use of stabilizing straps with a bike rack in order to keep the warranty valid, while the Draw-Tite does not.

  • Can Trailer Hitch be Used on Vehicles with Factory Hitch
    Yes, some factory trailer hitches are welded onto vehicles, which is likely the case with your 2015 Nissan Murano. We don't have any type of specific list of vehicles with welded-on hitches but it unfortunately sounds like this is what is happening for you. In regards to fit, aftermarket hitches such as the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75952 and Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13205 which fit your '15 Murano are designed to fit vehicles that do not already have a factory...

  • Recommended Hitch and Cargo Carrier for 2020 Nissan Murano
    We can definitely help you with that! I can certainly understand what you have going on, I've recently downsized vehicles myself and it is a struggle! For a hitch I'd recommend the Curt Class III receiver hitch, part # C13205. Curt makes a durable, high quality product at a reasonable price point. For the cargo carrier, I'd recommend another Curt product, their 23x60 folding cargo carrier, part # C18151. This carrier has a couple of features I really like, like the carrier can also fold...

  • Is a Square Tube or Round Tube Trailer Hitch Stronger
    Technically speaking a square tube hitch has less chance of twisting than a round tube. This is why all of the heavier rated hitches for large trucks are squre. With that being said either style is designed and tested to meet certain specifications and rated as such. So regardless of which you're using as long as you stay within its specifications the hitch should handle the load. For your 2018 Nissan Murano both hitches are round tube hitches; Curt # C13205 and Draw-Tite # 75952. ...

  • Comparing Curt and Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitches for the 2015 Nissan Murano
    Curt, the manufacturer, has determined that some of their hitches should be used with stabilization strap # 18050 when using a bike rack or cargo carrier. This is a requirement from Curt for their warranty. Like you said Hidden Hitch does not have this requirement though you could still use the strap if you wanted. The strap relieves some of the stress on the hitch. If you want to avoid using the strap then I recommend going with Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75952. I have linked a video showing...

    I have a possible solution for you. It looks like neither your Curt Class III, part # C13205, nor your vehicle are able to support that kind of tongue weight. Your best bet is to use a motorcycle trailer which you can find online. For most of these, you will need some wiring attached to your 2020 Nissan Murano to power the lights. I recommend the Curt T-Connector, part # C56267. It includes a tail light converter to ensure that your vehicle's wiring matches the one from your motorcycle...

    I have talked to my technical contacts over at Draw-Tite and Curt about trailer hitch # 75952, # C13205, and the automatic lift gate before. Basically, they have not had any complaints about the hitch interfering with the hands-free rear hatch on the 2018 Nissan Murano. On other vehicles with this feature it is rare that a hitch installation would render that feature inoperable. Usually if there is a problem it is just a reduced area that the sensors can detect so you may have to kick...
