Heavy duty! I was a little bummed when I found out how much more difficult it was to find a half inch pin for this, but no matter. It is a tad loose inside the hitch, so there's a little rattle, but I doubt it's as noticable as I make it seem. Super classy and a welcome change from the typical draw bar style. Goes great with my Volvo V70 T5. Thanks!


Great product and great service


It was easy to install and it's perfect to hitch a trailer or put a bike rack


I am in Germany and found the delivery to my Army Post Office be pretty fast. 100 percent satisfied with the product, delivery and customer service.


excellent product. but not compatible for United Kingdom as here everything is metric. Uk uses 50mm towball rather than the US 2". My euro model Thule Easyfold xt did not fit on the 2" ball


Product is exactly as represented, high quality manufacture and recommended.
I already had a 1 7/8th ball of the same type but most rental trailers suit the 2 inch ball better so now I have both. The 1 7/8 ball tends to rattle even though the fittings work ok and I found that getting it tight enough to not lift off means the ball gets a groove worn in it.

Using this for light (up to 2000 lb) towing behind my Ford Focus, works really well and towed 4*8 cargo trailer without any problem.

Still great, towed a Jacuzzi on a trailer from California to Texas in 21 hours without any issue, its solid and work great.
Steve T - 06/03/2016


The drawbar appears perfect. Haven't had a chance to use it but I don't anticipate any problem. The company seems to really care about their image which is a very good thing. In my opinion, the only weak point is their cost of freight and the time it took to arrive. I have to admit, I have been spoiled by the master .com company out there which deals in everything.


I installed this on a 2004 Volvo XC70 along with a hitch from etrailer. Both work extremely well for my use (small motorcycle trailer). There's enough clearance between the bumper and the ball to get the trailer connection onto it without scraping the bumper (which is not the case with a 2007 XC70 where I have a similar hitch installed but the bumper plastic is thicker). This drawbar is classy-looking and fits the simple European styling of the car well. Chrome finish on the ball is very tough and I haven't had any rust problems at all.


Yes, it works well on my Subaru Forester. I pull my johnboat with it.


Great product, sturdy build quality. So far, so good. I have no problems with this hitch. This hitch is perfect for my GMC Terrain. etrailer customer service is outstanding also as my first hitch put a hole in the box during shipping, and an empty box was delivered. I called etrailer, and they sent out a new hitch right away. I have done business with etrailer in the past and will continue to buy from them. Great company.


This product works perfect for my sons tiburon


Works perfectly. Exactly what I wanted.
perfectly. Works great with My Focus ST.
Looks so much better than our American "standard" flat and square hitches!


Receiver hitch and trailer tongue scale arrived sooner than I thought. It seems like a lot of money for a little scale like that but it will be well worth it knowing how much weight is really on the motorhome hitch. I can finally know for sure and make adjustments. Thank you Etrailer.


Great Product.. Very good construction . Tucks up nice underneath..very clean lines


As always... etrailer comes through again!! There shipping is fast and efficient. My item arrived quite secure. It is exactly what I was looking for. I very much like the euro trailer hitch design. I can't wait to use it. I am using it with the etrailer class II, on a '16 Hyundai Tucson Turbo. Thanks again etrailer!!!


Super high quality for the price. Nice figment.


Your product is a great item, its easy to understand instructions, and it fit right up to where it said it would fit. It's has great workmanship. The only problem I had was with the delivery of the product. They came one about 6:15 pm, and my gate was locked, and from there on it became a problem. I change the address to one of UPS, their own access point, and they could not get it to their own access point for a total of four days and 3 tries they still didnt get it right. Finally, I went to UPS distribution center in West Sacramento, where they told me that my box had busted opened and I told them to give it to me like that that they didn't have to repair the Box I would just look in there and pull out the items. It still remains to be seen if there's a items missing from that box.

by: is an excellent source to purchase a trailer hitch, wiring, and drawbar. They check to make sure the hitch works for your car. Speed of delivery was excellent! Bryan W is an excellent salesman to work with.


I am a little surprised it did not come with a hitch pin. When I bought the 1 7/8 hitch it came with a pin.


Order was shipped promptly and correct. Products were exactly as described. I will use etrailer again in the future.


Nice item however I had to return due to it would be hitting my spare tire on my RAV4. I was not able to install it. On other vehicles with no spare tire on the rear door I think it would be awesome


Product brand available locally with limitations to manufacture's upgrade models. E trailer filled the gap with excellent option choices, pricing, customer service and quick, accurate delivery.


No need for bulky adapters, works great.


i like this euro style tow bar. Its a nice change from the standard. It looks great on my new Mercedes SUV. It is solid and seems very well made. Wish they would offer one more "rise" height option. But I am very pleased orherwise


Bought this to accompany my kayak trailer; very happy with it. Especially like that I can remove it when not in use, so no more bruised shins!

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for a Factory Trailer Hitch on a 2011 Toyota Sienna
    On hitches that we have installed on a 2011 Toyota Sienna, we have found that the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole straight back to clear the rear bumper measured approximately 5-1/4 inches. I do not know what the factory installed hitch measurement is, so you will want to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole back to the distance required to clear the rear bumper. The Curt Euro-Style ball mount, # C45572, measures 7-1/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole...

  • Recommended Class II Ball Mount for 2012 Kia Sorento w/ Dealer Installed Hitch
    The correct ball mount for your needs will depend on the height of your trailer coupler and the diameter of trailer ball you need. You'll want to choose a ball mount that will place the trailer ball at the correct height so that your trailer is towed level. I'll link you to an FAQ article that shows how to measure the height of the receiver and the height of the coupler. The difference between these two measurements is the rise or drop you'll need. A ball mount that would make things...

  • Availability of a 2-Inch Version of the Curt Class II Euro Style Drawbar with 2-Inch Ball # C45572
    The Curt Class II Euro Style Drawbar with 2-Inch Ball # C45572 that you referenced is intended specifically for a particular 1-1/4-inch Curt hitch with a Class II rating. This ball mount/ball combo is only usable with this size and class of hitch. It will not fit a Class I hitch (even though they too are the 1-1/4-inch size). Also, there is no equivalent product offered that will fit a 2-inch hitch, which typically has either a Class III or Class IV designation. However, we do offer a...

  • How to Pick Out the Correct Rise/Drop Euro Ball Mount
    In order to pick out the correct rise/drop ball mount to use with the Curt Hitch part # C11377 you will need to take a couple measurements. The goal is to have your trailer towed as level as possible. In order to do that the correct rise/drop ball mount needs to be used. To pick out the correct one you will need to measure the distance from the top of your hitch opening to the ground and then with your trailer sitting as level as possible measure from the bottom of the coupler to the ground....

  • Choosing the Right Curt Class II Euro Style Ball Mount to Tow a Trailer Level
    If you are measuring to the top of the coupler then I will have to ask for the measurement to the bottom of the coupler instead. This is because the coupler covers the ball so the measurement to the bottom of the coupler provides a more accurate representation of what kind of rise or drop is needed to tow a trailer level. I am willing to bet that the measurement to the bottom of the coupler will have you at just about level. That would make the best Curt Euro-style ball mount with a 2...

    The Curt # C45572 ball mount will fit in your receiver, and will slide in far enough for the hitch pin to slide into place. However, Draw-Tite only recommends using the # 3593 ball mount in your hitch. I cannot recommend or endorse doing anything contrary to the manufacturer's recommendations. Also, keep in mind that the Curt Euro Ball Mount is rated for Class II, up to 3500 lbs. Your hitch is limited to 2000 lbs. You'll need to abide by the lowest rated component. Before attempting to...

  • Can Curt Euro Style Ball Mounts be Used in a Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch on a 2016 Honda HR-V
    Draw-Tite used to put a stop in the shank behind the hitch pin hole to prevent the use of Class II accessories (which the Curt Euro ball mounts are). Draw-Tite hitch # 24932 for your 2016 HR-V does not have that stop but double check your hitch to make sure it isn't present. If not then you can use a Curt Euro ball mount! For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # C45571. For a 2 inch ball use # C45572.
