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 Chevrolet Equinox, GMC Terrain, Pontiac Torrent or Saturn Vue (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.

This product was supposed to take 30-60 mins. Depending on skill level. It took three hours due to Curt not leaving any wiggle room between the mounting brackets.(was 1/8" longer too costly for Curt) It had to go in percisely and even them you needed a jack to finess it.

    Comments about Curt Class 3 Trailer Hitch:

    This was very easy to install. I used a tap to chase the threads before attempting to install the hitch. This is a must, I believe, for a quick install. My vehicle was 8 years old so there was some oxidation in the nuts. After running the tap with a little oil, the bolts went right in. It couldn't have been easier!

        The hitch fit tight so I had to use a rubber hammer to tap it in place. Start one end bolt first don't tighten ,then your middle bolts. lined up nice. Did by myself.

            Comments about Curt Class 3 Trailer Hitch:

            I was so so so suprised at how easy it was to install this hitch.After taking good care to clean out the factory threaded bolt holes to make sure that i would not strip out the threads when i bolted this puppy on. I will say that it fit perfectly! No need to modify any holes to allow for all holes to line up. The instructions were very helpful. I used them as a guid even though i would have had NO problem accomplishing thiswith out them! All hardware was securly taped to the hitch, which was great ,because the box blew out and all of the hardware would have been lost for sure.I will say that it came very quickly.In just two days! I Would tell every one to buy from you Guys...Sincerely Jeff

                I receieved this within a week. Came packaged fine. All hardware and instructions included. Installed on a 2012 Equinox in less than 30 minutes. All I needed was a jack and a socket wrench. All welds seem fine and it was really well made.

                        I saw some reviews stating the install was tricky. My method, which seemed to work, hold it in place with one bolt on either side, then fully install two center bolts, then go back and install and tighten up bolts on sides of hitch. Nice product, heavy duty, well made, well worth it. Would buy again!
