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


The hitch receiver shipped quickly and arrived on time. The install was actually really easy. The directions were very clear, and they have videos to help with the install as well. If you don't have the proper tools, including a torque wrench, you may want to have a professional do this. I'm very happy with this purchase!

Its been a year with the hitch, and weve used it a ton. Havent had any issues at all. Very glad we got this!

Perfect fitment, I'm not a fan of Curt's other products made outside of the USA because they are generally the same grade as no name chinese brands. However, these hitches are some of the best.

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

I had been searching for a few years for the right hitch receiver at an affordable price when I stumbled upon the website. The site was easy to use and search for what I wanted and needed. After a couple of months of contemplating in purchasing this product from the sight, I did my due diligence and searched other sites for the correct product fit that met my needs and cost. The other sites couldn't match the price and product availability. In addition, the DIY videos on the site gave me the confidence to complete the install. From installing the hitch receiver to the connection of the 4-pole wiring kit(hint: if you're vehicle has the prewiring for towing, they have the custom kits to match). The install in total took me about 45 minutes (it helps to have the right tools as well) from prep to finish. Now that I have the capability to tow, I'm going to be able to save on the cost of rentals and now I am even looking at getting a family camping trailer, since our Santa Fe model can tow a good size one. The attached pictures show the completed install. Thanks for everything! You definitely found a new customer and I will be highly recommending this site to my circle of family and friends.

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

Purchased this hitch for my 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe. Price was excellent on Installation took me over an hour. It was the first time I installed a hitch and used a torque wrench. Getting the bolts to the specified torque is what took me the longest due to inexperience and working without a lift. Save money on the installation and do it yourself you will be happy with the end result.


I installed the hitch myself. everything lined up. it only took about an hour to install it and the wiring. most of the time was finding where the they hid the plugins for the wiring.

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe

I routinely use this to tow around 2,500 lbs with a 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe. It’s rated to tow more, I’ve just never had the need. I’ve never had any issues with it. The only change I would suggest if I was doing a redesign is to make a place to accommodate a wiring harness. I had to working around it and put the seven pin adapter lower than I wanted to.

2016 Hyundai Santa Fe

I am so happy with my purchase and will definitely recommend etrailer. I was going to have a hitch dealer put one on my 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe, they wanted over $500.
I. I saved money.
2. it arrived within a few days.
3. It only took an hour to put on.
I bought the hitch cover with a light to check the wiring, since the lights on my trailer are not working.

Great! No problems.

Sturdy, high quality welds and coating, shipping box was great. Instructions were clear and straight forward. The only thing that appears awkward is that the bolting and instructions are from HUSKY not CURT so I wonder who and where is really manufacturing the hitch.


The installation was very easy. The [online] video explained beforehand everything I had to do, and all the provided nuts and bolts matched perfectly my car.

One year and still going strong.
Diego - 05/20/2022


Beyond satisfied with quality of product, shipping, packaging, and communication. Installing tow hitch was easy peasy. Did not have to drop spare tire and bolts/nuts went on without any issues. Super happy with product. It is heavy duty and solid!

1 year later Flawless!!! Not a single hitch hahaha No pun intended

Etrailer pricing are so affordable, compare to other manufactural of hitch product out there! Easy installation within 15min you are done.
Thanks Etrailer Team :-)

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

Incredible service. If this installs like the other two units, I bought this year your score is a 100

Great, I bought two hitches that year both have been useful and fit well.
Nathaniel - 11/23/2022


Great hitch for our Santa Fe. Nice clean hidden hitch installation. Thanks etrailer


I love the fact that etrailer had videos with instructions on how to install the products they sell!

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

I recently bought the Curt receiver (p/n C13153) and Tekonsha 4-pin harness (p/n 118269) for use on our new 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited Ultimate. We use the hitch to tow a small utility trailer occasionally, and more often use it with a hitch-mounted bike rack. I also ordered a mounting bracket kit and companion adapter plate since I had hoped to have the 4-pin connector mounted to the hitch (v. just zip-tied, etc). For installation of the receiver I dropped the spare tire since it is easy and helps for maneuvering the receiver into place. I did not lower the exhaust. I cleaned the tapped holes in the frame with a spray lube and wire brush prior to mounting, and I think this is a necessary step since a couple of the holes were pretty gunked-up. I checked by running the M10 screws in prior to putting the hitch in place, which I also recommend. I did not have a 2nd person available to help put the receiver in place to install but I had success using a floor jack and a piece of 2x6 to lift the receiver into place and start all the screws. It took a little patience to maneuver past the exhaust but really the fitment of the hitch is very good and it wasn't a bad struggle. A helper is probably the best way to go. As others have said, the videos provided by are really helpful. I finished the hitch installation by torqueing the screws and installing and torqueing the carriage bolts. It is a bit of a job (at least for me) to get the proper torque for the carriage bolts when laying on my back like that, but the overall connection seems super-secure. The spare tire did not interfere with the receiver after installation, though as you'd expect the clearance is small. After the receiver was done I installed the wiring harness. Once again, the video was really helpful and everything went quite smoothly. I found I needed to supply a few of my own zip-ties to secure the wiring to both the hitch and the factory wiring bundle since the provided ones were too short. After this I attempted to mount the 4-pin mounting plate to the hitch but I could not find an orientation that I was happy with and which would not interfere with the removable trim cover for the hitch. On the other hand, I found I was satisfied with leaving the 4-pin connector hooked to the check-chain hole in the receiver, so that is how I will leave it. After finishing the installation I hooked up our trailer. I found that there is a good amount of space in the check-chain openings, at least for our trailer, and the wiring connection (trailer lights) worked perfectly. When I went to install our bike rack I was a little concerned about the space around the hitch hole for the head of the bolt, but when I installed the hitch and anti-rattle bolt the fit was fine. Overall I'm quite happy with the hitch and wiring harness and I'm looking forward to many years of use. As always, was great to deal with and I would always recommend them to anyone looking for towing equipment and accessories.


Install was a breeze with the instructions and installation video.

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

Thank God for this hitch looks good and tucks under car bought for my trailer and cargo carrier and when not using it I'm able to put stock car cover over it to hide hitch and plug ins..
Very well made easy install and gives the most ground clearance by it's design no problems what so ever, can not say enough good about Curt all items I have bought have been great love to test and try new items from them .. so far I have been nothing but pleased

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

This hitch was packaged very well and turned out to be a straightforward install. The included instructions were useful and watching the video of this hitch being installed on our vehicle model made the installation totally clear. One nice side benefit was that after lowering the spare tire, I checked it and added air pressure to set it back to 60psi since it was way down at about 15psi. We're ready to add a bike rack next and get going.


Install was quick and it works for my purposes without complaint. It's also clear that the limiting factor is going to be the towing capacity of my vehicle and not the hitch receiver, though I'm not planning to tow anything that's all that close to either.

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe

Firstly rocked with delivery and the trailer hitch showed up in 3 days with free shipping. The directions provided were flawless, down to the bending of the bumper pin and installation took me about 15 minutes. The torque wrench tightening took as long, but the hitch is in place, looks great and as if part of OEM. The hitch feels SOLID. The fascia could fit back on, but the hitch will be in use shortly. Added a hitch to our new car (the dealer wanted $600 installed) for mostly use with bike racks.

All in all an outstanding experience.


The trailer hitch and all its components I just purchased for my 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe XL V6 came just as expected for delivery. The installation guide was easy to follow and I was able to get it installed without any problem. The wire harness was plug n play besides running the power wire to the battery which was not very difficult. Thank you for this amazing product, it’ll be used for years to come.!


I wasn’t given the proper hitch at the time based on what I had asked about the hitches. I have a Sante Fe Sport Limited. Not Sante Fe Limited. Due to covid and not being able to ship US it was too expensive to send back with Canadian shipping. I still have the hitch on my garage floor.

When ing the hitch for the Santa Fe you will want to use the down menu to the Sport option. The hitches in the link below would be the hitches that fit the 2016 Sport model.

2014 Hyundai Santa Fe

This product fits like a glove! I installed it with no issues on my 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe. Just make sure you have a second pair of hands to align the hitch as it is too heavy for one person while attempting to insert the bolts into the holes. I also love the fact that the hitch can be concealed with the factory rear bumper cover. See pics attached.

Thank you etrailer for a great product and saving me money!


Very impressed. Fast delivery and easy installation. I purchased the trailer hitch, wiring harness and the two brackets to mount the plug on the hitch and everything fit perfectly. I watched a video or two before starting and all went smoothly.
I'll be back for the mount and ball once I decide what type of camper I am going to purchase. Thanks etrailer!!

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe

Etrailer is the only place that offered the hitch and information that I needed. The install was as easy as they said it would be and the hitch fit perfect. I will forever only use etrailer to get accessories for my car. Wish y'all delt with car parts I'd use y'all exclusively for those too. Awesome company guys!!!! Thank you for the simple breath of fresh air in a complex world! I'd love to submit more photos but it won't let me and I can't edit my salection the one on this is not the best
