2015 Chevrolet Silverado 3500

Box was heavily damaged but the hitch showed up with all the parts as expected


Arrived in ripped box missing bolts and paint chips everywhere. Hesitant to put it on my 100k dollar truck but am not willing to pay or wait to ship it back


Bought this product to replace the factory receiver on my 2006 GMC 3500 due to rust issues. It was an exact fit and hardware is very durable. I highly recommend this product.

Great product with no issues over a year later..,

Delivered as promised. Carton was badly damage, hitch was not. Thank you for securely taping the hardware to the hitch otherwise it would have been lost. We will install hitch later.


The trailer hitch was delivered within 4 days of Order. Thank you

Excellent service from trailer.Ordered on Sunday received on Wednesday. Easy installation.Good heavy hitch.

Hitch is working as advertised very satisfied.

Great fit onto my Kenworth K100


great product, pricing is very fair, delivery was timely. only problem is packaging, the box was completely ripped to pieces. Very thin box material. For something this heavy the box should be banded. Lucky that someone taped the hardware to the hitch.

2012 GMC Sierra

Very impressed on how quick my order was delivered to my door. The order was complete.....nothing on back order. Products look like they will do the job I need them to. Thank-you.


Welded it to the truck. It fit the frame with for a International 4700 LP. Has worked great.

2016 Chevrolet Silverado 3500

Very good heavy duty hitch


This product is perfect for a truck with a 34 " frame rail spacing in the rear It is well designed,and east to install.

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2006 Ford F-350 Cab and Chassis with Utility Bed
    Since your truck frame is 34 inches from outside to outside that means that it originally was a cab and chassis truck. I have a solution for you, but it will require you drill some holes in the frame. The Curt hitch part # C15400 has a drop of 6-1/4 inches from the mounting surface, but since it was designed to bolt up to a Chevy truck the install holes won't match up. But you can easily drill new ones to match the hitch. The mounting holes are Rear most mounting holes are 30.12 inches Middle...

  • Heavy Duty Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2019 Ram 3500 Cab and Chassis
    There is a great option for a heavy duty trailer hitch receiver that fits a 2019 Ram 3500 Cab and Chassis, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15400. This behemoth of a hitch is a Class V with a 2 inch receiver and has a 2,550 lb tongue weight capacity along with a 17,000 lb towing capacity. This hitch is designed to fit so long as your '19 Ram 3500 has a frame that is 34 inches outside to outside and I have added a link to a video install as well as the written instructions for you to...

  • How Does a Curt Trailer Hitch Install on a 2012 Dodge Ram 4500 Cab and Chassis
    In order to install Curt trailer hitch # C15800 on your 2012 Dodge Ram 4500 cab and chassis model you will have to drill into the frame because, like you have said, there are no holes in the frame already. The rivet that is in the rear most part of the frame also will come out and get replaced by a bolt. Installation is very similar to hitch # C15400 (just the capacities are different) and I have linked the instructions for it for you to view. The hitches install with 3 bolts on each...

    We do have a Class V that fits the 2019 Ram 5500 but the Curt hitch part # C15800 is not a fit. I confirmed with Curt that the Class V hitch receiver part # C15400 fits the 2019 Ram 5500. The Curt Hitch Receiver part # C15400 can handle up to 2550 lbs of tongue weight and the installation does not require drilling. It is designed for a cab chassis model that has a 34 inch frame outside to outside. I have attached a video of the installation process.

  • Comparing the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Part # C15800 and C15400
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C15400 and the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C15800 are the exact same trailer hitch save for one has a 2" receiver tube opening and the other a 2-1/2" receiver tube opening. The dimensional drawing that I have attached for you is accurate for both trailer hitch receivers. They will both line up with the frame on a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD Cab and Chassis but you will need to make sure the receiver tube opening does not interfere with the...

  • Class V Trailer Hitch for 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500 Cab/Chassis Truck
    Because Cab/Chassis trucks have a narrower 34 inch frame width than the pickup, the Curt # C15860 Class V hitch won't fit your truck, as it'd designed for the wider frame member spacing of the pickup. We do have a Class V option that will work for you, though. The highest capacity Class V hitch we offer for the cab/chassis model is the Curt # C15400 which has a 17K towing/2550 lb tongue weight capacity.

  • Trailer Hitch that Fits 2000 Chevy C/K with 34 inch Wide Trailer Frame
    Based on the frame dimension you listed of 34 inches that would indicate that you have a cab and chassis model 2000 Chevy C/K truck. So instead you'd want the part # C15400 which is correct for your frame width.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch With 30,000 lb Capacity for 2011 Ram 5500
    There is a fifth wheel hitch that gets close to the capacity you need, the Reese Low-Profile 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30054 which has a 30,000 lb capacity, though not one that can exceed that. This hitch is designed to be used on cab and chassis trucks like your 2011 Ram 5500 may be and installation will require welding or other modification to your truck's frame as this hitch does not use base rails. The Reese # RP30054 has a double jaw system which locks onto the king pin for a secure...

  • What Heavy Duty Hitch with 2" Receiver is Available for a 2020 GMC Sierra 3500
    I have a solution for you but the # BWHDRH25198 is not going to fit on the 2020 GM Sierra 3500. Instead, I recommend using the Curt # C15400 which will have a comparable capacity and is also a 2" receiver. I really like Curt hitches because of the quality of the powder coating, which is important because it's going to fight off rust/corrosion much better than some of the other options.

  • Fit and Compatibility of Deep Drop Trailer Hitch for a M35A2C
    I spoke to my contact at Curt and he informed me that the Curt hitch # C15317 center section measures 31-5/8 inches. The center to center mounting hole width with the flanges attached is 34-7/8 inches. He also informed me that the flanges on the # C15317 can be reversed if it helps to accommodate your M35A2C. This hitch will have a drop from mounting point to top of the receiver tube of 7-1/4 inches. Fitment cannot be confirmed since they have not performed a test fit on the vehicle. The...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for School Bus on 2005 Chevy Express 3500 Van Cutaway Chassis
    Your 2005 Chevy Express 3500 left the factory across the street from our facility as a Van cutaway chassis and was delivered to an upfitter that installed the bus body onto it and joined it with the cab portion of the van. Because there are many different upfitters, we have no way of knowing how the rear bumper is situated in regard to the frame, so it's very likely that the hitch that fits the passenger or cargo van models wouldn't be a fit, as their bumpers don't hang as low. We might...

  • What Does Hitch Not Rated for Use with Weight Distribution Mean for a Trailer Hitch
    A trailer hitch that is not rated for use with weight distribution means that the hitch cannot be used with any type of weight distribution system because of its bracket design (short brackets on this hitch) and they could have also found in testing that it does not hold up well with weight distribution. This hitch is also made for cab and chassis models of the 2003 GMC Sierra so if you have a regular pickup this hitch will not fit. If you do have a cab and chassis model then Curt trailer...

  • Is the Curt Hitch C15800 Designed to Fit Standard 2019 Ram 3500 Pickup
    If your 2019 Ram 3500 is a pick-up truck the Curt Class V Receiver Hitch part # C15800 is not a fit because it fits the cab and chassis model of the Ram 3500 which have a 34" wide frame. If your truck is a cab and chassis with 34" wide frame the Curt receiver is a great choice. I have attached a video of the hitch installed on a cab and chassis for your reference. It sounds like your truck is a 2019 Ram 3500 pick up. If it is a short bed model with a 6-1/2 ft bed, I recommend Curt Trailer...

  • Hitch and Brake Controller for 2000 GMC Sierra 3500 Pickup
    The 2000 model year was a split year for GMC pickups so checking hitch fits can be tricky. Curt Class V hitch # C15400 fits only the cab-and-chassis versions from 2001 forward; it does not fit your 2000 GMC Sierra 3500 pickup. If your 2000 Sierra pickup has a 10-inch deep-drop bumper you can use Curt Class V hitch # C15317. If it has a standard or step bumper you can use Class V hitch # C15325. If your Sierra has a factory 7-way you can install a trailer brake controller like the Prodigy...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution & Hitch Extender to Towing a Camper and Trailer with 2015 Chevy 3500
    For your situation, I cannot recommend you use a hitch extender like # RP11004 and a longer weight distribution shank, but I do have a couple solutions for you. A hitch extender like # RP11004, will not be able to support the weight of your trailer and weight distribution system. This extender maxes out at 650lbs TW when used with a weight distribution system which we have figured your trailer alone will have max 600-900lbs when loaded and you have to account for the weight of the system...
