Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" - C11564

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (6 Customer Reviews)

Perfect for light-duty towing, this custom, vehicle trailer hitch receiver features fully welded, gloss powder coated steel construction. Drawbar sold separately.


The paint finish makes it blend with the valance so it looks nice. Additionally, you don't really need to make a big cut to the bumper valance as shown in the instructions, you can see in the pictures what I mean.

I'll basically use it for a bike rack, so far I tested the rack stationary and things looked good. If something goes wrong I'll probably come back to update this review. If not then it means it all worked great.

Very simple and easy installation. The paper instructions that came with the package and the installation video on the website made it a no-brainer. I can’t attest to its function yet, I plan on ordering a cargo carrier/bag very soon. Overall, it’s very nice and inconspicuous, which is exactly what I wanted.


The product feels solid and fits nicely under the fender. The assembly is not easy and will probably require two people or two threaded studs to support everything before placing the screws.
I probably would not use this to tow anything heavier than 1500 pounds but then again you probably didn't get a golf R for its towing capacity.

  • Trailer Hitches that Fit 2016 Volkswagen Golf TSI S
    We have a hitch from Curt that does fit your 2016 Volkswagen Golf TSI with the part # C11412 but the # C11564 only fits the R models. If you were wanting something with a hidden crosstube for a more concealed look you'd want the part # 24925 instead.

  • Concealed Cross Tube Hitch For 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI
    I do have an option for you but the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" part # C11564 is not a fit for the 2017 Volkswagen GTI. If you are looking for a concealed cross tube so the only portion of the hitch that is visible once installed is the receiver tube I recommend EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 306-X7310 which is a confirmed fit for the GTI. This is the only concealed cross tube option that is a fit for the GTI at this time (December 2019)....

  • Trailer Hitch that Fits 2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI
    We have the EcoHitch part # 306-X7375 which is a confirmed fit for your 2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI and would be what you'd want if you wanted a 2 inch hitch or the # 306-X7376 for a 1-1/4 inch hitch. The Curt hitch you mentioned is for older models of the Golf which is why it does not fit your GTI.

  • Hitch Recommendation For A 2018 Volkswagen Golf R
    Depending on what you intend on using your hitch for, you can select either the 1-1/4" hitch or a 2" receiver. A 2 inch Class III or higher trailer hitch generally will be stronger just by the nature of how much steel is used and the fact that 2 inch trailer hitches are built larger and with more towing capacity in mind. While there is no additional capacity provided, a 2" could provide flexibility to carry more accessories. The EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7332 is my...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2016 Volkswagen Golf R-Line TDI with Dual-Left Exhaust
    Draw-Tite confirmed their Class I hitch # 24975 fits and Curt confirmed their similar hitch # C11564 also fits your Golf's exhaust configuration. Both hitches share the same capacities and both will be a fairly involved installation but neither requires drilling. Both include all the required mounting hardware. If your intended use is to support a hitch bike rack like # TH903202 or cargo carrier like # C18145 then I suggest the Draw-Tite since it does not require use of support strap...
