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 is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the Toyota Avalon with dual exhaust (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide at curtmfg.com). It features a square tube frame and comes with a hitch pin and clip and all necessary installation hardware.
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.

2008 Toyota Avalon 11427 Hitch
Very rugged construction and thick glossy paint job. I trust Curt has engineered this to haul way beyond published limits. Once installed, it is nearly invisible under the bumper and very solid. But if you plan to install DIY and don't happen to have a hydraulic car lift in your garage, prepare yourself for a 3-4 hour wrestling match. I'm have decent mechanic skills and a garage full of hand tools, but had no idea how hard this would be to install. I had to remove the rear passenger wheel to get to a third exhaust hanger not referenced in the directions, otherwise the mufflers don't lower enough to access the six heat shield bolts. I would have lowered a fourth hanger that is about halfway to the engine block but could not reach it. There is very low clearance under the Avalon and you'll have to spend a lot of time on your back with the exhaust just inches from your nose. There are vinyl stickers covering the eight pre-threaded bolt holes on the Avalon frame that can be tricky to get off. I used long bungee cords to pull the dual exhaust in different directions while I inserted the bolts, but still access was tight and tough on the knuckles. The two plastic bumper fasteners you have to remove will likely just crumble in your hands. Like I said, great product, but not a 1 hour install. If I'd known the effort required I'd have paid somebody to do it for sure.
