Will Curt Trailer Hitch Interfere with Spare Tire on a 2016 Ford Transit T250


Hi does the trailer hitch not interfere with the lowering of the spare tire? Thanks!


Expert Reply:

The Curt trailer hitch # C13193 will not interfere with lowering or raising the spare tire on your 2016 Ford Transit T250. There is actually still quite a bit of space after the hitch is installed. Take a look at the video I have linked showing an example installation.

If you plan on doing some towing I recommend 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.

If the van did not come with a factory trailer connector you can add one using # 118643 for a 4-Way flat or # 22114 to add a 7-Way.
