Check Vehicle Fit

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 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 comes with a vertical receiver tube and is designed to be a custom fit trailer hitch for the Mazda Miata MX5 convertible (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, all necessary installation hardware and an old-style ball mount to fit the vertical receiver tube.Each CURT class 1 hitch is co-cured with a liquid Bonderite coating and a high-gloss black powder coat finish that provide a lasting defense against rust, wear and harmful UV rays. Like all CURT receiver hitches, this class 1 hitch is made right here in the USA and is backed by a one-year finish warranty and a limited lifetime warranty.

Comments about Curt Class 1 Vertical Receiver Trailer Hitch:

I drew the short straw and got a defective one the first go. (one bracket welded upside down) Hopefully, the newly ordered one will be right. In attempting to install, it didn't fit as nice on the NB Miata as a similar model I installed on an NA Miata. Was a bit tight between the frame rails, and something seemed a bit out of square, as one side didn't want to sit in the same place as the other without a bit of force. Drilling is a bit more difficult on the NB in comparison to an NA, becuse you need to make new holes instead of drilling out existing ones, and obstacles make it a bit challenging, but this is no fault of the product itself. It is a completely hidden receiver when the hitch portion is removed. Only 4 stars due to the quality control issue.
