We bought several hitches, installs went smoothly on our service body trucks. No issues with the shipping. Thank you

DodgeRam Pickup

2016 Dodge Ram Chassis Cab, 9' bed, 34" frame rails.

Extremely beefy trailer hitch. Easy to install, especially with no bed on the truck. The two rear rivets on the Ram frame rail are time consuming to drill out. Clears the rear 52 gallon fuel tank with no problems. It should be noted that the holes where the safety chains would hook are very beefy as well so small chain hooks will not work. Shackles will solve that proble and be more secure at the same time. I'm very happy with my purchas of this hitch and did a great job helping me find the correct hitch and shipping it out fast.


2015 Chevrolet Silverado 3500

This is and always has been a superior product for my use. This hitch is ultimately the best choice to put on our Semi Trucks. It gives me the ability to haul more freight. Now I can haul any reciever hitch or pintle hook load along with my standard 5th wheel loads.
Being in the Power Only industry versatility is key to our business... Outstanding Product


Heavy duty gets the job dune


Just received the hitch. Looks heavy duty. etrailer was fast, friendly, and very helpful. Big thumbs up! Can’t wait to install it this weekend.


The receiver hitch is heavy duty and looks to be well built. It fit perfect on my truck, the only tough part about it was working around the flatbed that I already have on the vehicle. So from my personal experience if you don't already have a bed on your truck, put the hitch on prior to putting the bed. It would make the install process much easier. Overall a great product and I would recommend to anyone in the market.


Fits great. Perfect for the truck. Very nice product. E- trailer is the best. All good news here.


Great product, price, and free shipping !!!


Box was mangled but product was not effected and hitch was very high quality.

DodgeRam Pickup

Though not listed on your website yet, this hitch indeed fits a 2022 Ram 3500 Cab Chassis.

2015 Chevrolet Silverado 3500

Hitch was installed on a 2015 Chevrolet 3500 with dual fuel tanks.
This hitch fit behind the fuel tank skid plate mounting bolts without relocating the skid plate mounts. The middle bolt lined up over the crossmember requiring a factory rivet to be drilled out, but the hitch is then mounted to two layers of frame
The hitch itself is very well made, the bolt flange is true to the truck frame, good mounting hardware included. it has a flat bedliner type finish on it.

2001 GMC Sierra

Came earlier than expected. Fit my 01 gmc 3500 cab and chassis great. Easy install. Found it cheaper here than anywhere else. etrailer is always the first place I look when I need just bout anything for my truck or rv.


etrailer had the best price for this hitch everywhere else was over $300 before shipping I got the hitch and 3day shipping for $xx.xx and some change.. install was easy but drilling the frame is pain in the butt just because of how solid the metal is.. the instructional video explained everything I needed to know and made the install a breeze.. instructions do come with the hitch however I only referred to them for torque specs.. if you’re mechanically inclined you and a buddy can have this installed in no time.. THIS HITCH WILL WORK WITH A SERVICE BODY THAT HAS A REGULAR J-MODEL BUMPER WITH LITTLE TO NO ISSUE.. I replaced a jerry-rigged POS hitch some “fabricator” made that ultimately almost destroyed the bumper and could’ve killed someone


Great price for a good product. etrailer always works best for me.

2019 Ram 3500

Hitch is extremely well made - as a full time welder, I could not do better. The metal is nice and thick and the hardware is first rate. Including the torque specs for the bolts is always a good idea. I was glad to find the information on the sheet.
The fit was excellent!
One question: Due to the condition of the box when it arrived, I am curious as to what else was in the box.. A mad honey badger? Fortunately, the hitch is so well made that it was unharmed during the badger's escape!


The service was super fast and the shipping was early thank you so much

2003 Dodge Journey

Product seems to be fine...even after being beat to smitherines during shipping. Part is just put in a box with no protection/packing. Due to its size and weight, it gets beat to death during its journey. May as well throw a label on the part and ship without a box...

2018 Ram 3500

I received the product very quickly and it fit and was a relatively easy install. The shipping container arrived in very poor condition and I think that it could have been prepared for shipping better. Because it is very durable item and all components were taped to it securely I received everything OK. The box however was torn in several places and taped up by the shipper.


This was the most heavy duty receiver hitch I could find. It was a reasonable price and it was a simple installation. The finish has held up well after a year on the truck, with a bunch of off highway miles. It was a good value and does a great job for those heavy loads.


This is exactly what I was looking for, will work great for what I need.


Excellent and convenient

2016 DodgeRam Pickup

We used this on a 2016 Ram 3500 Chassis Cab and it worked wonderful. Thank you for the prompt shipping service also. We ordered it at 1 pm and it was delivered by 2 pm the next day!




Very impressed, well built, easy install, still looks like new!

2016 DodgeRam Pickup

Good product. Works very well on Ram 4500. You do have to install it the old fashioned way by laying out and drilling all the holes. Not easy, but I wasn't expecting it to be.

  • Distance From Mounting Flange To Receiver Opening On Curt Class V Trailer Hitch
    I went to our warehouse and took a couple of measurements of the part # C15800. I have attached a photo of the trailer hitch and it has the dimensions noted. It measures 7 inches from the mounting lip to the top of the receiver opening and 9-1/2 inches to the bottom. This is a Class V hitch and has a 2-1/2 inch receiver opening.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Ram 3500 Cab and Chassis
    The Curt hitch part # C15800 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for a 2015 Ram 3500 Cab and Chassis. Since it hasn't been tested on vehicles with aftermarket fuel tanks I can't say for certain if it would work for you. This hitch attaches to the bottom of your frame rails, you will need to compare the attached install instructions link to your vehicle to determine if it would fit or not.

  • Best Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2006 Chevy Silverado 3500 Cab and Chassis
    I believe you meant to type 34 inch wide frame as that is the standard width for the cab and chassis trucks from outside to outside. I really like the Curt hitch part # C15800 as it is a fit for your 2006 Chevy Silverado 3500 cab and chassis and has great towing capacities at 20k total trailer weight and 2,700 lbs tongue weight.

  • Availability of a Class V Hitch for 2014 GMC Sierra 3500
    It sounds like you may have a GMC Sierra 3500 Cab and Chassis rather than a long-bed pickup. If this is the case we do offer Class V hitches, both 2-inch and 2-1/2-inch types. The link provided will let you see all three available Class V hitches from Curt and Draw-Tite. These range in their tongue weight and towing capacities and all require drilling for installation. Please let me know what size receiver you need and the specifics about your vehicle and I can confirm a fit.

  • High Capacity Class V Hitch Recommended for 2019 Chevy Silverado Chassis/Cab w/ Service Body
    You'll need a hitch for a cab/chassis truck, because they use a narrower frame spread (34 inches outside to outside) than the 3500 pickup. The Curt Class V hitch, part # C15800 is the highest rated hitch we offer for your truck, and would work well with a 14K GVWR dump trailer. The hitch has a 20,000 lb towing/2700 lb tongue weight capacity, with or without weight distribution. There is one quick measurement you'll need to take to confirm fit. You'll need to measure down from the underside...

  • Class V Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Ram 5500 Cab and Chassis
    The Super Titan hitch, # 38208, is designed for C channel style frames approximately 34 to 34-1/2 inches wide. This is measured from outside to outside of the frame rails. This is the common frame size for cab and chassis trucks so in that regard it would fit your 2016 Ram 5500. Based on the pictures you sent in and the dimensions of this hitch that we are aware of I can tell this won't clear your fuel tank. You would need to go with a Class V hitch that was designed to fit your truck....

  • 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...

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.

  • 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 Class V Hitch Options from Curt
    The Curt hitch part # C15800 does fit a 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 but only if the vehicle was a Cab and Chassis model which means it was sold without a truck cab and the frame dimensions are 34 inches apart measured from outside to outside. For a similar Class V hitch for a non-cab and chassis style truck you'd want the part # C15409 which fits if the truck came with a factory hitch or did not come with one. This hitch has capacities of 17,000 lb total trailer weight.

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...

    The 34 inch frame width you have means that you have a Cab and Chassis 2010 Chevy Silverado 2500HD. That means that the hitch you would need is the part # C15800 as it is designed for this style of vehicle whereas the part # C15312 you mentioned is for wider frames.

    Since you have a cab and chassis 2011 Chevy Silverado 2500 you would have to go with a hitch designed for that vehicle configuration like the Curt hitch part # C15800. Cab and chassis trucks have narrower frames so the part # C15363 would not fit.

  • Which Curt Trailer Hitch is a Fit for 34 inch Wide Trailer Frame
    34 inch frame hitch fits are for the cab and chassis model trucks. The part # C15312 does not fit cab and chassis model trucks so it would not be a fit for a 34 inch frame. The part # C15800 is an example of a Curt hitch that does fit a 34 inch wide trailer frame measured from outside to outside.

  • High Capacity Hitch Recommendations for a 2014 Chevy Silverado 3500

This hitch has slightly lower capacities and has a 2 inch opening instead of the 2-1/2 inch opening that the # C15800 has.
