Easy installation, low profile and excellent quality. Exactly what I was looking for in a hitch receiver for our 2021 Pilot.



by:

I love my Trailer Hitch. I've only used it a couple times in the last year and it worked great! I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who needs to add a hitch to their truck. Great well made product.



by:

GREAT! Ball/mount assembly kit received in excellent condition.
(Note: I had also received the hitch assembly a week or so earlier)

Impressed with quality, fit and performance of product.

Perfect set-up for my bike rack used on my 2020 Subaru Outback.

Will definitely use etrailer.com for future purchases.



by:

Great experience, even upgraded to be delivered faster than expected. Keep up the great work!!


Comments
It has worked amazingly. Haven’t had not one problem. Been pulling several different length trailers with no problems.
Ajay - 11/07/2021

by:

Good quality and no low quality pieces. A lot of companies give you poor quality on the extra pieces for the draw bar and you have to buy them again. This kit has quality.



by:

I normally keep a complete towing set in my automobiles and needed a new set for my wife's car. After some research, I decided to go with the Curt Towing Starter Kit. The quality is excellent and every aspect of the hitch and lock worked flawlessly. I can highly recommend this Curt starter kit to anyone needing a complete receiver hitch kit. Thanks once again!!



by:

This hitch has worked just as well as I hoped it would. It assembles and disassembles easily, and the case it comes with is great for storage in my trunk when it's not mounted so you have all the parts in one place (the locking rod holds the actual hitch in the casing when you put it away). The rubber cover for my mount when the hitch is not attached is a great bonus in the kit and creates a clean look for the back of my car.



by:

i ordered 4 items, a curt class 3 trailer hitch , a starter kit, receiver,2 inch ball, locking pin and safety pin ,

I was told by Andy C. that the hitch and wiring harness were back ordered.they weren't expecting the hitch till the end of September and the wiring harness till the end of october everything came today 9/27/2021 ! all packed and secured in 1 box , all packed very professionally all in great shape trailer is a great company to work with . Thanks again Andy C.!

Got the kit to use with my Curt hitch. Works great.

Still works great.
Scott - 09/16/2021

by:

Not much to it. Seems like high quality parts. Locking pin and receiver cover are nice touches.



by:

So far everything looks good hasn’t been installed yet. When box arrived there was a large hole in the side of the box so i had to open to make sure all parts were there. Glad that it looks like they all were. Most of the time you wanna wait a month to ask for a review to give client time to install not the day it was delivered.



by:

The kit came in a handy storage pack. Good quality with excellent paint and finish. Josh was very helpful.


Comments
Easy to store in the storage pack. I feel confident when using the receiver and ball. Looks as good as when I received it.
Stanley C - 01/21/2022

Good starter kit with all the basics you’ll need.



by:

A solid package. Everything you need to lock up your trailer



by:

Great to have everything in one kit along with a convenient carrying case.



by:

The hitch went on easily all bolts lining up perfectly. Wiring was plug and play as promised. Opening box till installed about an hour. Great experience, thanks.



by:

EXCELLENT PRODUCTS!!!! EXCELLENT SERVICE!!!!!!! I can’t say enough good things about this company. This was my FIRST time buying anything like this and let’s be honest (I had no idea what I was doing, what I needed etc) they made everything easy! Not only that but my products arrived way sooner than the estimated date. Ordered on Wednesday arrived Friday morning at my door. AMAZING. No complaints VERY STURDY STRONG MATERIAL



by:

I'm going to be moving soon and I have a new truck. I bought a hitch kit and extendable rear view mirrors for towing. They were well packaged and delivered quicker than I expected. You get something extra with your order. What really impressed me was the people. These people clearly LOVE what they do. You get people who actually care, with every order. That's something you can't buy and they give it away with every order.



by:

Superior quality,outstanding customer service!
Ask
for Helen or Anna to take your order,they really know their products and will ensure you will get everything you need!
Curt hitches and accessories are second to none.
I will be shopping with etrailer again.


Comments
Had to replace the 2 inch due to the fact Jeep Wrangler Unlimited needs a 4 inch to keep trailer level and clear spare tire mount. Curt products are outstanding,welds and paint finish lasts.etrailer customer service went out of their way to take care of me. Kudos to Sherry for her assistance!
Tony - 08/28/2019


by:

This is a nice starter kit, that has all you need. If you have a 2019 RAV4, you'll want to flip the ball mount so you have the 3/4" rise instead of the 2-3/4" drop - trust me. However, the best part of this whole process was the fantastic customer service by William B! He is a true pleasure to deal with!



by:

This was the perfect fit for my Honda Pilot. Installation was very easy; no mistakes were made! The Curt Towing Starter Kit Trailer Hitch Ball Mount was the perfect match for the Trailer Hitch receiver, as it came in a plastic box that fit perfectly in the small stowable compartment in the back of the Honda. Everything stays in the car, tucked away neatly in the plastic box.



by:

Absolutely outstanding! Everything fit perfectly and was easy to install. Customer service was the best I have ever experienced, far and away so. Very professional, friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this company and I wish everyone did business like them.

Good deal and easy to store

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for 3 inch Drop that has 2 inch Ball and 7,500 lb Capacity
    The closest we have to that would be the Curt ball mount kit part # C45534. This ball mount has a 7,500 lb capacity, a 2 inch ball, and has a drop of 2-1/4 inches which would be about right once you consider the sag the rear suspension might have with the tongue weight of the trailer on it.

  • How to Pick Out Ball Mount for 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500
    You'll want to first determine the hitch ball size you need. On the coupler you should see a size listed near where the ball inserts into it. Most likely it will be 2-5/16 inch due to the weight of your trailer but it could also possibly be 2 inch. 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...

  • Is the Curt Towing Starter Kit C45534 A Good Fit for the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox
    The Curt Towing Starter Kit part # C45534 would indeed work for your 2019 Chevrolet Equinox. As you stated, the 1-1/4" difference from the trailer hitch and coupler while using the above ball mount will then be reduced with the tongue weight of the trailer added to the vehicle. The trailer also does not have to be perfectly level either, but the more it is the better off you will be. That said, the above ball mount will work just fine. If you need any other parts for your towing setup...

  • Can a Locking Hitch Pin Be Used When Towing
    Yes. You can absolutely use the locking hitch pin that is included in the Curt Towing Starter Kit # C45534 when towing. There isn't any real advantage outside of the extra security it provides, but it's a good way to help secure the ball mount the vehicle.

    The Curt Towing Starter Kit for 2" Hitches - 2" Ball - 3/4" Rise, 2" Drop - 7.5K # C45534 as it comes is ready to be used in the 2 inch drop position. You can absolutely remove the hitch ball and flip the ball mount upside down and reinstall the hitch ball to get the 3/4 inch rise. If you need more of a rise than that to tow level, then you will want a different ball mount. If you will be towing many different trailers, then an adjustable ball mount may be a great option.

    Yes the ball mount included with the Curt Towing Starter Kit for 2" Hitches part # C45534 can be flipped over. You will need to remove the ball of course and place it on the other side. This should be torqued down to 250 ft/lbs. when installing it.

For a ball mount that falls in that range we have the Curt Towing Starter Kit for 2" Hitches - 2" Ball - 3/4" Rise, 2" Drop - 7.5K # C45534 which measures 7-1/2" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole, and has either a 2" rise or 3/4" drop....
