Check Vehicle Fit

The CURT class 3 trailer hitch is the most common type of trailer hitch installed on full-size pickup trucks and SUVs. It is also found on full-size cars, crossover SUVs, minivans and mid-size trucks. That is because the class 3 packs the punch of a heavyweight hitch while still staying light on its feet. This CURT class 3 hitch offers a gross trailer weight capacity of 3,500 lbs. and a comparable tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs. It is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the Toyota Highlander or Lexus RX 330, RX 350 or RX 400h hybrid (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide at curtmfg.com). It features a round tube frame and comes with all necessary hardware for a complete installation.The 2" x 2" receiver tube opening of this class 3 hitch is able to accept a hitch-mounted accessory, such as a bike rack or cargo carrier, or a ball mount to tow most standard size trailers, including utility trailers, single-horse livestock trailers, boat trailers and large campers. One special feature about the class 3 that is not found in classes 1 or 2 is its compatibility with a weight distribution hitch. When used in combination with a WD hitch, this class 3's gross trailer weight capacity increases to 4,000 lbs. and the tongue weight capacity to 400 lbs. (NOTE: Never exceed the lowest weight capacity of any towing component).CURT class 3 trailer hitches are engineered to be strong and capable, having a quality steel frame and a solid finish. They are put through strenuous testing before being deemed ready for market and come with two coatings -- a liquid Bonderite coating and a powder coat in high-gloss black -- that cure together to form a strong resistance against rust, scratching, UV damage and other wear. Our hitches are our pride, and as such, we back them up with a limited lifetime warranty and a one-year finish warranty.

        Comments about Curt Class 3 Trailer Hitch:

        Hitch was delivered promptly - the box was a little damaged but I think that was probably UPS, not Advance Auto. My son installed the hitch for me - didn't take more than 30 minutes. I was a little worried about how it would look on my vehicle but am very pleased with the outcome. Would absolutely recommend this product!

                    Perfect fit for 2007 Highlander

                    Comments about Curt Class 3 Trailer Hitch:

                    Hitch fit with no problems on my 2007 Highlander. Holes for frame bolts lined up perfectly. Can still drop the spare tire with the hitch installed. If you do the install by yourself, make sure you have a jack or blocks to hold the hitch in place. Hitch is too heavy for one person to hold the hitch and install the bolts. Order processing and shipping was very fast.
