Comparing CURT Class III Trailer Hitches for a 2008 Ford Escape


What is the difference between the Curt #13650 and 13651. Thanks


Expert Reply:

The CURT Trailer Hitch # 13650 and # C13651 are very similar. The 13650 has some additional hardware and updated instructions that make it compatible with the 2012 Ford Escape. The 13651 hitch only includes up to 2011 on the Ford Escape. The other difference is that the C13651 will fit if the vehicle has a factory 1-1/4 hitch already installed.

I have incldued a link to the installation details for the 13650 as well as a video showing a typical installation. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and a carrying bag.

For trailer wiring, if your Escape does NOT have backup sensors, use # 118251. If it does have backup sensors use # 118551. I have included links to the instructions for both.
