Recommended Trailer Hitch For 1978 Chevrolet C10 Pickup Truck


Do you sell a trailer hitch, that will bolt on to my chevy 1978 c10 no drilling


Expert Reply:

We do have trailer hitches that do not require drilling for installation, but they are only designed for a 1978 truck with a deep drop bumper.

If you have a deep drop bumper I recommend part # C15511. This is a Class V hitch and it has a 2-inch receiver opening.

If you have a standard bumper on your truck, the trailer hitch I recommend is part # C14082. Installation of this hitch does require three holes to be drilled into the frame for each side.

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 include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.

If you need a trailer wiring connector I recommend part # 118311.
