2006 Nissan Quest

perfect instructions. So good my wife wanted to do it and i only helped her clean the welded nuts in the frame and align the reciever . excellent shipping time.
could not ask for a more perfect install

2007 Nissan Quest

It's a great product, but in my case I had issues with the bolts going in specially on the driver side. the threats on chassis bolts after been cleaned with a wire brush and WD-40 were very tight until one of them snap off. I was wondering if you have any alternative suggestion to properly secure the tow hitch. At the present moment I have it secure with four bolts two on each side of the hitch.

thank you for the follow up Sir..

My recommendation for you would be to carefully drill out the existing broken off bolt or extract the existing broken bolt. Then you may need to re-tap the weldnut in the vehicle. You will need to choose the correct tap based on the bolt size. In this case the bolt is M12 -1.25 by 40, so you will want to choose a tap that matches this bolt. To start the tap you will want to have a couple of threads established so be careful when extracting the broken bolt so that you have some of the factory weldnut threads in place. You can then re-tap the weld nut as needed. We do not have the individual bolts available to replace your broken bolt, but you can locate one at your local hardware store, and we recommend matching the grade on the other bolts for your hitch.

Nissan Quest

Package and delivery was great. All 6 bolts with washers were included. Construction was heavy duty, nice and clean. I watched the YouTube videos on how to install prior to starting. There were 2 videos, both good. I would have had several frustrating issues with out the videos.

The reason I give this product 4 out of 5 stars is because even with slotted holes for mounting, things didn't completely line up. Got all 3 started on one side but only 1 would easily thread on the other. We finally were able to get the last 2 started by using a crow bar for leverage. The last hole was about 1/2 inch off. The hitch completely covered the threaded frame hole prior to using crow bar.

Overall I'm happy with the hitch and would recommend it. We'll be using it to tow a small trailer behind our Nissan Quest minivan.

Honda Odyssey

I have been very pleased with the two hitches And wiring assemblies I recently purchased and installed -- for a Subaru Forester and a Nissan Odyssey. The video instructions they provide are a great help and eliminate any vagueness from the written instructions provided. Their customer support has been terrific.

I have been so impressed that I convinced my neighbor to install a hitch and wiring from etrailer and I plan to purchase another hitch from them this fall.

2008 Nissan Quest

I purchased a Curt Hitch Item: C13563! After watching the video on how to install this hitch a friend and I installed the hitch on my 2008 Nissan Quest with no problem. It helped that we had ramps to back the rear end up on to give us plenty of room to work. It also helped to thread the bolts into the weld nuts after cleaning the weld nuts with WD-40 and a battery terminal wire brush before mounting the hitch. I would recommend this hitch to anyone with a vehicle it fits.

Ford Ranger

It's a trailer hitch. Looks pretty heavy duty. I'll be hauling a 18' Ranger behind my Nissan Quest. If it falls off, I'll be the responsible party. Now that I've installed one, I don't think I could do it again in 25 or 50 minutes, especially if you count the wiring harness in the time required. I also learned how to rip the interior out of the rear of the van. Another learning experience with some collateral damage (nothing serious). And if anyone asks, one man can do it alone, on the ground, on the front drive. With only a few cuss words and a floor jack. jim

2009 Nissan Quest

I ordered a hitch and wiring harness for my 2009 Nissan Quest. The product and pricing were excellent. The equipment shipped promptly and arrived a few days later. Customer service was also great. When I was installing the hitch, it didn't quite fit. I thought maybe I had received the wrong part, but after a quick call to customer service, I realized what was wrong and was able to complete the installation. Thanks to Ashley. Highly recommend eTrailer


Bent upon receiving but still installed okay. Very nice hitch.



Working out well . No problems.


Awesome awesome... Love how they let you choose your make and model shipping was fast wasn't expecting it this early. The wording harness I bought wow simple plug n play no cutting splicing needed local shop here wanted 464 dollars for the hitch and wiring I did it for [$$$] no sweat. Highly recommend etrailer

2008 Nissan Quest

Just as Promised, Fits great and easy to installed. The only problem was shipping...Box had holes and parts were missing, no big deal had to replace items..didn't bother calling company as it would take time to replace items and I wanted to install hitch the day it arrived.
Maybe they should box item better.

2004 Nissan Quest

Worked like a charm and custom fit perfectly and does not hang down below the back bumper. This was on my 2004 Nissan Quest van, already with low ground clearance.


Very happy with this hitch , real easy installation. It is made with heavy duty materials and real good coating (not like others) and l know for sure that it will last forever.


My product arrived when promised and in excellent condition. To the point that I have since also ordered the wiring harness to support my towing needs.


Awesome company ! Easy website to navigate with precise info regarding my specific vehicle. Loved the videos or descriptions associated with each parts installation ! Makes it even easier.
Thank guys!

2009 Nissan Quest

The product was perfect great quality and installation was absolutely flawless. Shipping was excellent and I will definitely be referring you all to all of my friends.

2008 Nissan Quest



Works just fine. Will order from the company again.

Dennis M.


Absolutely fine.

2005 Nissan Quest

I installed your hitch on my 05 Nissan Quest and it fit perfectly. An excellent product.


Easy to install, just followed the video that was on the website. 20 minutes to install once the vehicle was up on stands and the tools were gathered.

  • Will the Trailer Hitch for a 2004 Nissan Quest Fit Other Vehicles
    The trailer hitch receiver that we offer for a 2004 Nissan Quest is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13563. This Curt hitch will only fit years 2004 - 2009 of the Nissan Quest, nothing else. The Curt hitch, like most of our other trailer hitch receivers, is custom fit, so they only fit one model unless there is another model that shares the same chassis and even then, that is not always the case. If you can let me know what other Nissan vehicles you have, I would be glad to offer...

  • Solution for Trailer Hitch Install Bolts that Dont Want to Thread In
    What you are experiencing is pretty common as the weld nuts on vehicles where hitches install get dirty easily which prevents the hitch hardware from threading in properly. I have included a few links on hitch installation tips, cleaning weld nuts, and a video on cleaning weld nuts for you but basically you need to clean the weld nuts and the correct hardware that you have will thread right in. In most cases going with an M12 X 1.25 thread tap is the easiest and most efficient solution.

  • Class III Hitch and Wiring Harness Fits for 2005 Nissan Quest
    The hitch you referenced, Draw-Tite 2-inch Class III hitch # 75714, is a confirmed fit on the Nissan Quest for model years 2011 through 2016. But for your 2005 model year there we have a hitch that is confirmed to fit, the Curt hitch # C13563. This hitch is made for your 2005 Quest as a custom-fit for that vehicle and offer a no-drill installation. This hitch fits for the 2004 through 2009 Quest. An install video for this Curt hitch is linked for your review. If you also need a wiring...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver with 320lb+ Tongue Weight Rating for 2007 Nissan Quest
    The Curt Trailer hitch receiver # C13563 you were looking at for your 2007 Nissan Quest only has a 300lb tongue weight rating which is not enough for your 250lb electric chair and 70lb carrier. Since this is the only hitch available, I instead recommend getting a small trailer to carry the wheelchair. You will need to check the tongue weight rating and towing capacity of your vehicle by checking its owner's manual and using the lower rating between the vehicle and trailer hitch receiver. Since...

  • Fit of Curt # C13563 Class III Hitch and Yakima # Y02465 FullSwing Bike Rack on 2008 Nissan Quest
    When we installed the Curt # C13563 on a 2006 Quest, we found that the hitch pin hole was recessed under the vehicle by 5-1/4 inches. Since the shank of the Yakima # Y02465 FullSwing is longer than that, at 6-1/2 inches the rack would fit fine. The 2006 and 2008 Nissan Quest both belong to the third generation of the vehicle so if the hitch was recessed by that amount on the 2006, there's an excellent chance that it'll be recessed by the same amount on your 2008 since there wasn't any substantial...

  • Hitch and 5 Bike Rack Recommendation for Carrying 45 lb Bikes
    First let's start with a hitch for your 2007 Nissan Quest. For that you would want the Curt hitch part # C13563 as it has the highest available tongue weight rating of 350 lbs. The only 5 bike rack we offer that can carry a 45 lb bike is the part # C18065. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Carrying Electric E-Bikes
    The only bike racks we carry that can handle the weight of a 57 lb e-bike would be a hitch mounted option. Like you have noticed, the trunk mounted bike racks have lower capacities. The reason for this is that if you put too much weight on a trunk rack you would most likely damage the rear of a vehicle. So the only recommendation I can make starts with you getting a hitch. For that you would want the Curt Hitch part # C13563. Then for a platform bike rack specifically designed to work...

    The Class 3 Curt # C13563, and the one I recommend, is one of trailer hitches that fit your 2006 Nissan Quest. It has a maximum tongue weight of 300 pounds and 3,500 pound towing capacity. It's easy to install and no drilling is required. The custom wiring is the Tow Ready # 118469 and if you need a ball mount, I would get the ball mount kit # 989891 which includes 1-7/8 inch and 2-inch hitch balls, ball mount with 3/4 inch rise or 2-inch drop, pin and clip and a handy storage bag.

  • Will a Trailer Hitch from a Nissan Quest Fit a 2009 Nissan Rogue
    Curt trailer hitch # C13563 is designed to fit a 2004 to 2009 Nissan Quest. It will not fit the 2009 Nissan Rogue since they are built on different platforms. But we do have a nice selection of hitches for the 2009 Rogue. I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75902 for your Rogue. The Draw-Tite hitch offers a little more length at the receiver so the hitch is not as far under the vehicle compared to the other hitches for the Rogue. To complete your towing set up I recommend etrailer...

  • Would the Kuat Transfer 3 Bike Rack Fit a 2008 Nissan Quest with 2 inch Hitch
    Yes, the Kuat Transfer bike rack part # KU24FR would fit and work well on a 2 inch hitch like the # C13563 installed on your 2008 Nissan Quest minivan. You still might take one measurement to be absolutely certain. You will want to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the furthest point out on the rear bumper. As long as that distance is less than 6 inches this rack would fit and clear. From the install pics I have seen of this hitch on your vehicle there should be no problem,...
