CURT class 1 trailer hitches are the lightest-duty hitches of our rear mount receiver lineup. They are engineered for reliability, welded together with quality American steel and blasted clean for a smooth finish. Tested to meet the strict demands of the industry, this CURT class 1 hitch with ball mount has a capacity to tow up to 2,000 lbs. of gross trailer weight and 200 lbs. of tongue weight. This means it can handle a variety of small trailers such as single-axle utility trailers, canoe and kayak trailers, dirt bike trailers and more. It can also accept a hitch-mounted cargo carrier or bike rack, making it a very useful addition to cars with limited cargo space (NOTE: Never exceed the lowest weight capacity of any towing component; i.e. the vehicle, hitch, trailer, etc.).Class 1 hitches feature a 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" receiver tube opening and are typically mounted on compact cars, full-size cars and some smaller crossover SUVs, minivans and compact SUVs. This particular hitch and ball mount combination is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the Chevrolet Tracker, Geo Tracker SUV or Suzuki Sidekick (except sport) (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide at It features a square tube frame and comes with a hitch pin and clip and all necessary installation hardware.

        With reference to your inquiry on the Curt Class I; 1.25 in. Receiver Hitch - part# 111283/11128, the vehicle's towing weight, also known as its weight distributing towing capacity, is the total amount of weight the vehicle can tow using a weight-distribution towing hitch. This specialized hitch employs spring bars / rods that can be adjusted to distribute the weight between the trailer and the tow vehicle. This weight is further distributed throughout the tow vehicle, up to the front wheels. The tongue weight is the maximum weight your trailer hitch can handle of the downward force exerted on it by the trailer's tongue (the arm that extends from the trailer that couples with the tow vehicle's receiver). A properly loaded trailer should have 60 percent of the weight piled in front of the axle.

    • Q:

      My vehicle is lowered. How much of a drop is there between the mounting point and the end of the hitch?

        This Curt Class I; 1.25 in. Receiver Hitch - part# 11128 consists of a few simple components. The trailer hitch receiver forms the base: It's a tubular steel frame welded in a configuration that snugly bolts to the underside of the vehicle. It has a square opening (1 ¼") to accommodate the drop hitch. The drop hitch consists of additional pieces of rectangular welded steel and it extends the "reach" of the ordinary trailer hitch. It fits into the original trailer hitch on the vehicle and secures with a locking pin. Here's a quick and simple way to determine how much drop or rise your hitch receiver needs. First, measure the distance from the ground to the top inside diameter of the square receiver tube on your vehicle. Second, measure the distance from the ground to the bottom of the coupler on your trailer. The difference in inches between the two is the amount of drop or rise that you will need for your drop hitch receiver. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.
