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 trailer hitch is built nice but the install took longer than expected , the bolt holes did not line up , so i drilled them out some .


This is the third trailer hitch that I've purchased from (1998 GMC Jimmy, 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan w/extended wheel base, and now for my 2014 Dodge Journey). It went on with no problems. I love the step by step videos of the installations. They are so helpful. I always go to to buy my tow hitch and I usually get free shipping and excellent customer service. Thank you to the people that work for etrailer!

Dodge Journey

It's a great hitch and extremely easy to install. I have a middling knowledge of car repairs I was able to install the hitch on to my Dodge Journey all alone with the help of some items to prop it up. My husband uses it almost daily now for how brand new, very expensive,bike on a hitch rack.

Are actually closer to two 2yrs from install and no issues. Im happy with my purchase. I recommend it to anyone that says they need a hitch.

2016 Dodge Journey

Dodge Journey SXT Curt 13201 hitch.

Regular shipping, received within a week. Followed video instructions and it took me about 2 ½ hours. I don’t have a hoist so I lifted it up on about 16 inch jack stands. I don’t know how the video makes it look like there is so much room to remove the muffler hangers, but I had a time getting my hands into the space. I had to pry off 3 of the hangers and fight to get the last off by hand. I had saturated them with soapy water. Bolting on the hitch was easy with the help of my wife holding one end up and my daughter starting the nuts. It looked like the spare tire would be locked in, so I dropped the spare and raised it up again to make sure it would work. It fits fine, but you need to guide the tire to get it to slide in above the hitch and into place. Using the soapy water we were able to force the muffler hangers into place, but had to use blocks and a pry to lift and hold the mufflers enough to attach the hangers. Would I do it again? I’m 66 years old and have some sore spots from rolling on the cement floor and a few banged up knuckles. Of course I would do it again. Less than 200 bucks for hitch and wiring for lights beats the $600 the hitch shop wanted to install it. I still need to do the lights, but am totally satisfied with my purchase.

still looks good and pulls the trailer

2011 Dodge Journey

I have to say that this was one of the easiest hitches i have ever installed it came with color step by step photos and the hitch lined up perfectly and it looks great! ! The hitch was better quality than I expected they sell a great product. Very satisfied! !!!

2015 Dodge Journey

Really easy as projects go. Took less than an hour with a helper. I could have used a box and some wedges instead of a helper. Everything was top quality. I use it for everything from weekly trash hauling on a hitch basket to an occasional 18' trailer light haul in my 2015 Journey.

I actually have people ask me about it. I highly recommend it.

2016 Dodge Journey

Fanfabulous ... exactly as described. Fit like a glove. Installed in minutes. Couldn't ask for a better product.


Awesome product, everything was as expected, installed the hitch receiver and wiring pig tail in about an hour. I installed it by myself and I didn't even have to lower the muffler as stated in the instructions. All I needed was my skilled hands, a little determination and some common sense, as it was easy to install, almost didn't need the fish wire but it made it even easier and faster to install, thanks again for being one of the few companies that still take pride in their work as well as their product's. I would give more than 5 stars if I could!

2015 Dodge Journey

Product review of the Curt Class III-13201 Install on 2015 Dodge Journey Crossroad
Let me start by saying the shipment arrived pretty beat up. Fortunately the electrical parts I ordered with it were undamaged but the bag of fasteners was broke open and was only missing one nut and the instructions and paperwork were destroyed. A bit of bubble or foam wrap would have gone a long way.The hitch itself is excellently made and fits well. The install went straight forward after watching the etrailer video (highly recommend that!). Although the most current video install is on a 2013 Dodge Journey the install is the same for a 2015. The fish wire supplied that is used to thread the bolts in the frame is a huge time saver! I'm not sure if that is supplied by etrailer as an added detail or provided by Curt with the hitch, but THANK YOU for that! The whole install (including electrical) took me about 3 hours. That's up on ramps and not on a lift. The hardest part of the whole install is popping off/on the exhaust hangers.

I chose this make/model because I like the rounded drop looks of the Curt hitch over the other makes and that it does not stick out past the bumper to whack your shins.


After a year I have had no problems what so ever with this hitch. Awesome product that I would definitely recommend to anyone in the market for hitches. Quality is great, no rust or chipping paint. I use it all the time, pulling a utility trailer and it has been great. Matched with a receiver cover and the curt wire harness and mount it is the perfect combination for a sleek look when not pulling a trailer as well.

2017 Dodge Journey

I would be very happy to give you ten (10) stars if it was appropriate. I am thoroughly pleased with your product. The material and workmanship is superb! A friend helped me with the installation as I am a 75yr old disabled US Navy veteran. He told me he has installed at least 3 or 4 of your units and he doesn't understand your low price. Quite frankly, after shopping around, even locally with welding shops, vehical rental places, etc. Even if your price was doubled, I still would have ordered from you. You're obviously aware that I didn't order any electrical wiring harness and you won't see any in the photo. I don't do any hauling! You will see in the picture, the purpose of your unit is to provide me a way of installing my Amateur Radio antenna. The base folds back to facilitate opening the back hatch. Best regards and thanks for a superior product. Proud to have it on my new Dodge Journey.

2014 Dodge Journey

This hitch has been perfect for my family. We've towed several types of trailers including utility trailers and campers with it on our Dodge Journey. I would highly recommend this hitch to anyone installation was straight forward and relatively simply. It took about 2 hours total. Very pleased.


The hitch fits the vehicle but for some reason the muffler pipes are so close to the hitch it rattles when you excelrate. Need to find a way to put something between the two it’s only about a 1/16 on an inch between the 2

Dodge Journey

The trailer was really easy to install and looks great on my journey. I was able to watch the online installation video that was provided by and it took me less than 2 hours to install. Also the customer service was outstanding. I was constantly updated on my purchase and was even upgraded on my shipping. The hitch was received 3 business days later. Thank you for all of your help.


I am very happy with the purchase of my hitch, it fits my car as it was factory installed. The instructions and accompany parts made the installation extremely easy with no problems. I am also very happy with the quality of how the hitch was built.


They say it’s a “20 min install”...but plan on about 45 mins to an hour. Not a problem of the product, but the one thing the don’t mention is cleaning out ALL the rails of the frame. I had it half assembled before I found that a 1/2 inch of dirt wasn’t allowing the bolt to come all the way through. Plus rust and the exhaust being a massive pain...Id say plan an hour. OTHERWISE was everything was cleaned it went in pretty damn easy!! Can’t beat the deal when installing yourself. Picking up out trailer tomorrow!


Great product, smooth installation had more of a hard time lowering the exhaust then installing the hitch itself. The kit includes guide bolt wires and makes getting bolts through the holes a breeze.

2013 Dodge Journey

Fast delivered, Perfect fit on my wife's 2013 dodge journey, now she can use the 3rd seat, No more strangling packing, now she can put a bicycle carrier or a cargo rack when we go to our outdoutdoors activities. Only 25 min. installed, Thanks etrailer


easy installation with the bolt pull wire.. done under an hour. very happy with product. got it in 3 days.. free shipping


I just want to say that this company is awesome. First off the search and ordering process was very easy. Second it came very quickly and was packed very well. Third, the instructions were very easy to read and understand, as well as the video's you have on YouTube. I will definitely be using you again in the future for anything hitch or trailer related. Thanks.


Great fit, works great, already have used it a few times; no problems. Thanks.

2018 Dodge Journey

I was very impressed with how easy it was to install this, the hardest part of the install was putting the rubber exhaust mounts back on, and even that was easy! I did it alone on a set of ramps and it only took me 30-45 minutes!


Easy install and very sturdy. 2019 Dodge Journey


The hitch was easy to install and everything needed to make the installation as easy as possible was included with the kit. It was especially helpful to have the fish wires for the bolts, it made the installation far easier than making a special tool to fish the bolts through the frame.

2018 Dodge Journey

Great product, perfect fit with nice detailed instructions. Install was super easy.

  • Curt Trailer Hitch Installation on 2016 Dodge Journey
    Some hitches do cause a full-size spare to no longer fit under the vehicle. Vehicles with the smaller donut-type spare tires usually avoid this issue. When we install this hitch on a 2016 Journey that vehicle had a donut spare. I reviewed the instructions for Curt Hitch # C13201 (these are linked for your reference) and while they do note the need to temporarily move the spare tire for hitch installation, no mention is made of the spare no longer fitting after the hitch is installed.

  • Issues with Exhaust Making Contact with Hitch on a 2020 Dodge Journey
    I'm sorry to hear you are having this experience with this hitch # C13201. You can make a few minor adjustments exhaust hangers to allow more space between the exhaust and the hitch. You can do this by rotating the hanger or sliding the hanger on the pins so that it is further away from the hitch. We have not had many issues with this hitch making contact with other components on the 2020 Dodge Journey.

Both 1-1/4-inch Class II and 2-inch Class III hitches are offered and we always recommend going for the 2-inch hitch since it will offer higher weight capacity and be able to use more of the available hitch-mount accessories that are available, things like bike racks and cargo carriers.

    I attached an FAQ that details how to pick out the correct ball mount. Picking out the correct ball mount will allow your trailer to sit as level as possible. Basically you will first measure the height from the ground to the top of the receiver opening on the hitch while on level ground. Next, you will measure the coupler height from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler when the trailer is on level ground. Next, you will need to compute the difference.

So if your Journey has LED lights you can use # 118536. If it does not have LED lights use # 118567. Both wiring harnesses are compatible with trailers that have LED or regular incandescent lights.

  • Should the Trailer Hitch or Trailer Wiring be Installed First on a 2014 Dodge Journey
    Installing the wiring harness # 118536 first on your 2014 Dodge Journey could make it easier. This is because you will need to route a connector from the left side of the vehicle to the right side. The hitch could potentially get in the way. Take a look at the video I have linked showing installation of the wiring on a Journey. Notice that the hitch is installed in this video and it wasn't really in the way.
