Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class V - 2-1/2" - C15810

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (126 Customer Reviews)

Specially designed for heavy-duty towing, this fully welded trailer hitch receiver bolts onto your vehicle's frame with no welding required. Powder coated steel is sturdy and corrosion resistant.


Excellent build quality and installation was very easy. Needed an extra set of hands during install due to the weight of the receiver.

2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Curt receivers are great quality, plus etrailer had my order shipped the same day and was delivered the next day!

One lesson learned for me was this particular hitch (15810) does not fit with the spare tire on a 2008 F-250.

Thanks again for a great product and extremely fast shipping and customer service! I definitely recommend using etrailer over large box stores.

You are absolutely correct, Joshua. Spare tires larger than 20 inches will not be able to be stored in the original location underneath the vehicle.
-- Etrailer Expert Laura E - 07/10/2017


Great hitch! I definitely tested it beyond its rated capacity hauling dirt with pintle hitch and a dump trailer without issue. Now if they just made one for a Dodge 12v Cummins?

You mentioned that you wanted to see if there was a hitch for a Dodge 12V Cummins. I am happy to look into this for you. What year are you looking for? Would it be a 2500 or 3500?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 05/31/2022
1995 2500. I would like 20k, 2-12”

I checked and the closest that I have is part # DT45505
Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class V - 2-1/2"
for a 6.5 or 8 ft bed with a standard or step bumper. It is rated only at 12,000 pound capacity however if used with a weight distribution system then it increases to 14,000. It is a 2.5 inch hitch receiver. I wish I had one that was rated 20,000.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 05/31/2022


Hitch fit great. Only reason for a 4star was because packaging of hitch was so poor it must have slammed around in box and the hardware package must have slid out the hole in transit


The hitch is great only thing I have a problem with is that the safety chain holes are a odd shape and I can’t get the hooks to securely fasten to the hitch. Thanks

We have heard of the loops on Class V hitches being too thick for standard safety chain hooks. You can use loop safety cables like # RM-910648-12
RoadMaster 12" Safety Cable Extensions - 1 Pair
through each chain hole and secure the ends together. You can then just attach your safety chains from the trailer to the quick links on these cables. These have a weight capacity of 8,000 pounds.

2010 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Product is of outstanding quality. I have installed a lot of hitches over the years and this one has perfect fit and finish and lined up perfectly on the vehicle. I highly recommend this hitch for anyone looking to upgrade their factory hitch or just looking for a heavy duty hitch. This one will be pulling a dump trailer for a landscaping company.

2000 Ford F-350 Super Duty

The hitch has held up nicely for the year that I have had it on my truck. It is very stout. The paint has held up well to the elements so far.
It went on fairly easily and all of the holes lined up. It was helpful to have a second person to help hold the hitch in place in order to get the first bolts in.
I purchased this hitch when I realized that the hitch that came with my truck was only rated at 3500lbs, a fair bit less than the trailer I tow..
The box that it came in barely held up to the shipping monkeys on the way out to the Seattle area.

1999 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

The Curt 20,000 pound commercially rated receiver is is built like a battleship! And while it was difficult to man handle alone, I was able to install it using the eight supplied bolts in about 20 minutes. The fit was positively perfect, so someone at Curt did their homework on the design. The only complaint I have is that unlike my Reese Hitch, it did not include the 2" reducer sleeve. A lousy $15 difference! Don't be cheap, for this kind of money it should be included. Now I get to pay $25 in shipping for a $15 part.

2017 Chevrolet Traverse

Ordered Thursday evening just before Memorial Day weekend, and arrived Tuesday afternoon. Was shipped out very quickly with update emails through the entire process! Although the box was a bit torn up from shipping the hitch was still in great shape with all hardware and the wiring for another vehicle I ordered, in the box. Hitch is amazing quality, VERY heavy duty, and bolted right into place! I did have to forgo the nice factory wiring/plug mount and zip tie them into place, but other than that it was a perfect bolt on affair! Will definitely do business with these folks again


Easy install. Be sure to remove the spare tire. It is heavy 75# and at 60+ years old a little cumbersome. I just wired it up to the frame, then installed the bolts... Simple.


Super hitch easy install.One bolt needed replacement, e trailer shipped one to me. Very quick delivery.

2012 Ford F-350 Super Duty

10/10, used this to replace the stock 12.5k hitch on my 2012 F-350 SRW, recommend for pulling heavy loads, thing is stout-definitely built heavy duty. I use the 2.5” curt 20k lbs 2-5/16 ball Pintle combo to tow a 16k dump trailer and equipment trailer regularly.

Use two people for the install it’s about 80lbs. Only thing I didn’t like was that I had to drill and tap mounting holes for the OEM Ford trailer combo plug mount, not a big deal just a little more work to keep the harness/plug setup all the same. Fits fine w/ 20in stock wheel/tire size on the 350 SRW, just had to hold the spare offset some since this hitch doesn’t swing out like the stock one, no big deal just thought I’d throw that out there as that was one of main concerns before I bought this.

2012 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Perfect for my F350. Much beefier than the little factory 2", 12,500 hitch they used originally in 2006.

Used this to move several mobile homes. Very sturdy!
Grant - 01/10/2022


Great product. Super sturdy.


Amazing Fit, super impressed with the quality and price. Would recommend.

1999 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

Heavy duty receiver. Easy install, but definitely need two people because it is heavy. Will handle all my trailers.


Hitch is great except you sent me hardware for a Honda CR-V. 4 bolts instead of 8


Outstanding product, higher towing capabilities. Superior Construction and Strength. Added feature for any SRW trucks, quarter ton or one ton. Maximum potential and peace of mind. Worth the upgrade to a Type V.


Great receiver, love how beefy it is, gets the job done. No rust yet.


Great hitch fit perfectly


Does exactly what they claim.

Works great no issues
Phillip - 05/29/2022


good fit, great quality

Great, really ties the truck and trailer together, the truck and trailer both now sit level. need to adjust a little bit more to put more weight back on the front axle
keith - 06/01/2022

2002 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Great solid hitch. Easy to install on 02 F250. Is tight around factory wiring receiver and have to nudge spare forward to go up all the way. Make sure you run the nut all the way up and down the bolts with a wrench before trying to put them on the truck, the zinc coating makes it really tight. Use the red locktite after aligning the hitch with the frame as extra assurance.

so far only used it to pull a tree out! it definitely stiffens the [rear] end up nicely though after not having a hitch for a while and noticing the frame twist.
Doug G - 07/12/2014

2002 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

This thing is heavy duty!! Much more so than the 5000lb hitch that came off the truck. Installation was a breeze, it looks good, and does what we expected.

Had an issue with shipping where the shipper damaged the shipping label and lost the address. After speaking a couple times with the shipper to no avail, I called Etrailer, and 3 days later, it was on our doorstep.

Thank you again!

Cant say enough about etrailers customer service. You cant go wrong ordering from them. The hitch was exactly what we were hoping for.
