CURT Manufacturing focuses on being first-to-market with our new custom fit trailer hitch designs. CURT's high-quality powder coat finish is applied after sending welded hitches through multiple stages, including a shot blast, wash and preparation system creating a smooth, clean surface. Each trailer hitch is also dipped in liquid A-coat before it receives the powder coat finish. The two coatings cure together in the finishing oven providing the most rust and chip resistant hitch available.
It's extremely important to us that when you are looking for a trailer hitch, CURT is the best option. Additionally, we want to ensure that you are very happy with your hitch for years to come. That's why CURT trailer hitches undergo a stringent production, design, and testing process. We are so confident in the quality of our trailer hitches that we back them up with a limited lifetime warranty and a one year finish warranty.

Back end of receiver is open for easy cleaning
