This CURT class 2 trailer hitch with ball mount is made for light-duty towing, having a gross trailer weight capacity up to 3,500 lbs. and a tongue weight capacity of 300 lbs. This makes it an excellent choice for most smaller size trailers such as single-axle utility trailers, small boat trailers, popup campers and some recreational vehicle trailers. It is also perfect for adding cargo space with a hitch-mounted cargo carrier or bike rack (NOTE: Never exceed the lowest weight capacity of any towing component; i.e. the vehicle, hitch, trailer, etc).
CURT class 2 trailer hitches are generally used on full-size cars, crossover SUVs, compact SUVs, minivans and even some smaller pickup trucks. This particular hitch and ball mount combination is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the Jeep Patriot or Jeep Compass (including Rallye package) (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 hardware necessary for a complete installation. This class 2 hitch kit also comes with an old-style 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" ball mount to be a complete towing package.
CURT class 2 hitches are made with innovative engineering that takes shape in quality materials. Our engineers work with real vehicles and advanced programs to design each hitch to succeed. CURT trailer hitches are constructed with American steel by state-of-the-art machinery and our skilled fabricators, welders and technicians. We coat each hitch in a liquid Bonderite coating that provides long-lasting corrosion, chip and UV resistance, and then finish them in a high-gloss black powder coat. Our quality processes and construction give us the confidence to include a limited lifetime warranty and a one-year finish warranty on all of our class 2 hitches. Best of all, we are proud to say that every CURT hitch is manufactured in the USA.

Customer Service people were most courteous [and LIVE!)
I just took delivery on a CURT hitch #12255. It arrived much sooner that I had expected. Except for a small hole in the cardboard box, it arrived in perfect condition. The instructions are crystal clear (except for a section that referred to the "rallye," which I did not know referred to a rallye package on my Jeep, which I neither had nor knew about). Best of all, your Customer Service people were most courteous [and LIVE!) and answered my question immediately. Top Company!
Delighted with service, quality, and ease of installation
Hi, I am delighted with service, quality, and ease of installation of a CURT #12255 trailer hitch. It was ordered on Memorial Day at 4:30PM and arrived less than 48 hrs later. The installation could not have been easier! It took 35 minutes by myself and the alignment with the predrilled holes with hardware in the frame was perfect. Great Job! Robert.
