Trimming Required to Install Curt Trailer Hitch 13077 on a 2013 BMW X5 M-Sport


Do you have pictures and trimming templates to install the #13077 on a 2013 X5 M-Sport?

I have included a picture from the instructions for Curt trailer hitch # 13077 that shows where the trimming occurs on the 2013 BMW X5. I have also linked the instructions and a video showing an example installation of the hitch for you.

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.

And for trailer wiring I recommend # 119250KIT because it is the only one that doesn't require splicing into the tail light wiring. I have linked a video showing how it installs.
