The biggest difference will be capacity. The Curt Hitch part # C15302 that you referenced is on the high end of the capacity spectrum. It's a Class V hitch that has the following capacities:

Maximum gross trailer weight: 16,000 lbs Maximum GTW when used with weight distribution: 17,000 lbs
Maximum tongue weight: 2,400 lbs Maximum TW when used with weight distribution: 2,400 lbs

On the opposite end of the capacity spectrum is the Curt Hitch part # 13208 which has the following capacities:

Maximum gross trailer weight: 8,000 lbs Maximum GTW when used with weight distribution: 12,000 lbs
Maximum tongue weight: 800 lbs Maximum TW when used with weight distribution: 1,200 lbs

I attached a link to a page that has all of the hitches we offer for your vehicle.
