Curt Trailer Hitch

Vehicle Specific

Part Number: 13178
Features & Benefits

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 8,000 lbs. and a comparable tongue weight capacity of 800 lbs. It is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD or 3500 with a 6 Ft. bed or GMC Sierra 2500HD or 3500 with a 6 Ft. bed. It features a square tube frame and comes with all necessary hardware for a complete installation. The 2 In. x 2 In. 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 12,000 lbs. and the tongue weight capacity to 1,200 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.

  • Made with a vehicle-specific design for a custom fit
  • Tested for safety in accordance with SAE J684
  • Precisely welded for superior strength and fit
  • Protected by a durable high-gloss black powder coat finish
  • Gross trailer weights (GTW) & tongue weights (TW) vary by application.
