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


Installed this on a 2017 GMC Acadia SLT-1. Instructions were spot on. Required cutting heat shield and trimming some caulking, but well worth it for a safe & proper fit. Not hard at all. Tin snips and a pocket knife.
The fish-wire makes installation a breeze and I was able to put the washer and bolt on through the end of the frame instead of the minute "access" hole. Two sets of hands would make lifting this into place and holding it there much easier, but can be done with some blocking while finger tightening the nuts.
There is enough clearance to install without jacking, but I just backed up my oil change ramps for lots of extra room. Took about 2 hours from box opening to turning the light off in the garage.

GMC Acadia

Very impressed with the hitch. Looks very well put together. It sits just below the bumper on the Acadia, which is right where I wanted it. It was no 20-40 min instal. And I’m not a novice. There had to be more width to remove off of the heat shield and along the sides to make this fit easier. I had to really hit it hard with a rubber mallet to get it to line up with the holes. I cut the heat shield as shown in the instructions. For this one, it would have been less length and more width. But after prying it over, beating it and working it, I got it. Wife and my arms were sore after holding that up and all the adjustments. I’d also note that some of the caulking that is up behind where the two mufflers attach needs to be shaved off to allow the hitch to lay flat and make it easier to get that nut on.

Those were my only parts that I struggled with but I love it. It’s a great looking hitch. Thank you.


Still a PITA, had to break one of the rear exhaust nuts, 2 per each side is overkill anyway, no way bending was gonna allow hitch to sit flush. It’s a tough project if doing at home, not a lot of room to work under these Acadia’s.


This has been a great product so far. The kit came with everything that I needed. From lifting the car to hooking up a trailer to test was about 3.5 hours of work on my own. Everything fits perfectly and I haven't had any issues so far, given it's only been a few days.

2021 GMC Acadia

Completed my installation. Took about 3 hours, but that was mostly because I was stopping to look at the video each step of the way. Completed by myself with no help. Used jack stands to help hold the hitch up while bolting the first side. Messed up on one spot, but I just misunderstood which speeder nut stud needed pulled off with the pliers. Got it figured out after I pulled off the wrong ones, but definitely my fault. Attention to detail :). Looks really good, also installed the trailer cable. I’ll be towing a trailer about 2,000 pounds next month for my move to CA from TX (13 hour drive). My 2021 Acadia (V6) doesn’t have the equipped package with the upgraded radiator and what not, but hoping it should still work out. Dealership has no clue what to tell me lol.


Hitch fit great and came with everything needed to install it, including very easy to understand instructions

2019 GMC Acadia

Per the installation video, it went in as shown and was easy to do.

2021 GMC Acadia

Fit in well on the 2021 Acadia. Make sure any caulk or tin from heat shield is REALLY out of the way. Every ounce of space makes a difference for getting hitch into place. If at all possible hold hitch in place to mark where heat shield needs to be trimmed. The wire bolt pulls worked GREAT. Videos online by etrailer are big help. I installed alone, yes help from a friend is BETTER than my floor jack. 1.5 hours on this. I would recommend etrailer to a friend.

2019 GMC Acadia

For our 2019 Acadia, this was a toss-up between this hitch receiver and the other one. In the end, the deciding factor was ease-of-install. I won't say this install ended up being easy, but one person can do it (use a jack to get it close and feed the fishwire for each bolt through the accompanying hole in the receiver, so you don't lose the bolt in the frame as you jack it up). Big tip: the instructions state to scrape off excess caulk on the frame...spend the time to mock up exactly where the receiver will go on the body, then use a sharpie to mark what sections of the caulk to remove. Getting the frame prepped for proper installation of the receiver took the most time. Other than that, it's a pretty straightforward job and the receiver fits snugly just under the bumper. No trimming required. Perfect!



It’s been a year since I installed this hitch receiver. And what are my thoughts about it? Honestly, not much, and I think that’s a perfect recap. It just works. Still just as snug as when it was first installed and so easy to use. During COVID, my wife and I took up a lot more biking and this hitch receiver greatly simplified the process of “taking the bikes”. Within minutes we were picked up and on the way to the trail. I have no regrets about purchasing this receiver. Great product! Thank you, etrailer!

2020 GMC Acadia

Received parts quick and packed very nicely as always. The fishwife for the bolts was sweet. Definitely have to drop the exhaust down. Worst part is taking the heat shields off to trim. Only had to trim plastic cover a little with a razor. Turned out nice.


Followed instructions on video and did it by myself until it came time to lift the hitch up. Very easy instructions, perfect fit!


Shipped earlier than expected! Great packaging! Easy and quick install and instructions! Less than 45 minutes, start to finish! Highly recommended!

2019 GMC Acadia

The trailer hitch was too long for our 2019 Acadia. We had to pay an installer $150 to take the exhaust off only to find out it was the wrong hitch. VERY DISAPPOINTED! Please let us know shipping and tracking information on replacement hitch that was to be sent out 3/24/2002. We are anxiously awaiting it so we can leave on vacation.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you. This hitch is a fit for the 2019 GMC Acadia. It sounds like that the hitch may have been flexed. This means that the side brackets were knocked out of alignment. This can happen while in transit to our facility or to you. We do have a great FAQ that provides ways to move the brackets back into alignment so the hitch can be installed.


Looks great on my 2019 Acadia!

2017 GMC Acadia

Fit perfectly for my 2017 GMC Acadia. Well built, install medium difficulty, plenty of how to videos and pictures, but a little hard to do by yourself. And you have to make sure that 100% of the glue for the heat shields are removed, otherwise the hitch will not sit flush to the bottom of the car. Overall very happy with the purchase.

2019 GMC Acadia

Installed easily. Has held up on my GMC Acadia for over a year with multiple uses


Great hitch. Just follow the instructions and installation very straight forward.

GMC Acadia

It fit perfect and worked just like all of my Curt hitches that I have purchased from etrailer. I don't shop any place else for any of my trailer or towing needs. As far as I can tell some things I might have to give a couple of cents more for but they make up for it in their customer service. Erika and George are the greatest and are always eager to help me out if I need it. I will and do, highly recommend etrailer to any one looking to get a fair deal on trailer parts and accessories. It's a shame that the GMC ACADIA doesn't have the power it needs to tow anything bigger than the mother-in-law though
The one complaint I have is that there is no place to mount the vehicle electrical plug without using a little Micky mouse bracket...


Approximately a year ago I ordered a receiver and luggage rack for my GMC Acadia. We have used them on two trips, and they have worked great. Installation wasn't difficult. I would highly recommend this product.

2019 GMC Acadia

The body shop owner and myself watched the how to install video. We took down the exhaust as indicated on the video, the hitch did not fit as indicated. We had to grind the egg shaped holes larger, in order to make the hitch fit. The installation took 4 hours and two men working.

Thank you for your review. It sounds like your hitch receiver was flexed. We have solutions for this problem attached in a help article:


Hitch Fit as stated,it went together well. Son in law and I put it on in about 1 1/2 hr on a blacktop driveway. We were pleased an it was a good project with money saved. Also wire harness for trailer was very easy plug in route. Lights even worked correctly haha. Nice. Money saving.


I like that it was very easy to install with help of yawls [online video] Thank yawl


Very good product and instructions, just note that this installation takes a little bit of time.

Joel B.


working great...looks good


everything I have purchased from etrailer has gone as stated. the last purchase was a receiver hitch and was easy to install. it will my life a lot easier when pulling or hauling different item with it. I don't know if I should say this but don't know why not the people you talk to, to make sure that I get the right one for my cars are excellent, could not be happier with them . I don't wright reviews for much of anything but these people are very good and the prducts are very good.


Curt trailer hitches are a great product. This is my second one. The ordering process through Etrailer is always a pleasant experience. Thank you !

  • Is 2020 Cadillac XT6 Compatible with Curt Hitch Receiver 13293
    I think it is a safe assumption because you have confirmed the OEM hitch fit that the frame locations will be the same. The trim would be the big question then because hitch # C13293 hasn't been tested on the 2020 CADILLAC XT6 yet. The fit for the 2020 Acadia excludes the AT4 model for off-road fun for example but you may want to give it a try. We don't confirm fits unless the manufacturer has or unless we have tested it to confirm a fit ourselves. Unfortunately at this time (May 2020)...

    I'm sorry to hear about your hitch! Given that your vehicle is a non-AT4 model 2020 GMC Acadia, one of the common issues people have with hitches is bending/bowing of the hitch during delivery. If the angle on the welded end of the driver's-side brackets does not match the frame rail, it does indeed sound like an issue with bending/bowing of the Curt Trailer Hitch - 2" # C13293.
