Curt RV and Camper Hitch - Frame Mount Hitch - C13704 Review


Today we're going to take a look at the Curt Adjustable Width 2-inch Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs. It has a 5000 pound weight capacity. Now this adjustable trailer receiver hitch, it's designed for use on RVs or motor homes, and it can be bolted to the vehicle frame or welded on for a no-drill application. They do use these heavy duty side frame brackets, which allow for maximum adjustability from 22 inches all the way out to 66 inch-wide frames. They'll just slide along the hitch body to match the width of the vehicle frame you're installing it on. And they will work on a box frame, a C-Channel frame, or even on I-beam frame.They do include everything shown here.

The grade A installation hardware to install it is all included. Nice set of detailed instructions. You can see all these parts here are of a nice high-gloss black powder coat finish. They do resist rust, corrosion, and they are resistant to scratches and UV damage.When you do install this, it does give you a strong, secure all-frame attachment. These frame brackets will bolt to the cross tube and to the vehicle frame.

It's a solid construction for maximum strength and safety. Now when you do install this, it is designed you could put a 2 inch ball mount in the receiver, to enable your RV to tow a variety of trailers, such as a boat trailer or ATV trailer, utility trailer. Or even a pop-up camper. A tow bar could also be attached, allowing you to bring your vehicle along for the ride.Now, it is not for use with a weight distribution system. Also, if you use this for non-trailer loads, like a bike rack, a cargo carrier, if you do install it on here, it must be supported by auxiliary stabilizing straps to secure it.

They do that have folds here that you can run the straps through, or you can even use those holes for the safety chains.It is for use with RV-approved accessories only. This part is made in the USA. Again, the receiver opening is 2 inch by 2 inch. It is a Class 3 rating, so the maximum gross trailer weight capacity is 5000 pounds. Maximum towing weight capacity is 500 pounds.A few measurements on this: it is designed, and it's adjustable to fit a frame width of a minimum of 22 inches, all the way to 66 inches.

Now the overall length of the whole tube itself from one end to the other is right at 68 1/2 inches. The overall length of the receiver tube from the back here of the cross tube to the very front, that measurement's going to be right at 11 inches. The distance from the front to the front of the. or the front of the crossbar to the receiver tube, that measurement is going to be right at 8 3/16 inches. Now the frame brackets, let me slide one of these off, give you some measurements on the bracket itself. The width on the bracket is right at 10 inches. The height is right at 5 1/2 inches tall. And the mounting holes on the top here center-to-center, they're going to measure right at 8 5/8 inches center-to-center.Now one note on this, the main hitch body, tube here, the cross tube, it can be trimmed. So in other words, if you find the correct frame width, this can be trimmed so that the ends are flush with the frame brackets. You could cut those off. But what you want to do is after trimming them, you do want to coat the bare metal with paint to protect it against rust and corrosion. And also, if you're going to weld this hitch, all welding surfaces must be cleaned to bare metal, or the weld's not going to give you the required strength and it may void the warranty.But that should do it for the review on the Curt Adjustable Width 2-inch Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, with a 5000 pound weight capacity.
