Does Curt Trailer Hitch C13193 For 2015 Ford Transit Include All of the Mounting Hardware


I spoke to a really polite, helpful lady a week or so ago regarding getting a Curt C13193 receiver hitch for my new Ford Transit. Plan A was having yall do the install, if I could get to Wentzville. Plan B was having yall send it to me and I would install it using according to Curts instructions the two regular bolts and the included 4 self-tapping bolts. But, an installer in San Antonio, Tx says Curt is NOT including the self-tapping bolts that they are telling folks to get/use a tapanddie set then use regular bolts. 1. Please have someone PERSONALLY look in a C13193 box to see if it does or does not include self-tapping bolts. And, 2, if not, check with YOUR installers to see if THIS is going to be a problem.

I personally went out to the warehouse to check on Curt trailer hitch # C13193. It does include ALL of the hardware including the self-tapping bolts. All of the hardware listed in the instructions, linked for reference, is included. I am not sure where the installer got that information.

If you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not have the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, use the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.

And for trailer wiring use # 118643.
