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 Kia Sedona (short 114" wheelbase) (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide at curtmfg.com). It features a square 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 (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.

Not exactly a Class III, but that may be my car's fault.
Hitch was relatively easy to install according to the instructions. I chose to deviate from the Curt method of reverse fishwiring; another brand recommends drilling an offset hole just large enough to fit the backing plate through. Curt has you enlarge the hole to one inch with a hole saw which is nearly impossible; I don't own metal hole saws, hole enlargers, or reamers...all of which I think are relatively expensive. Again, start with a small bit off center from the existing hole and gradually enlarge until you've hit 5/8 (or so), then clean the hole up with a metal file. My frame's metal was very soft. Now on to the Class III part, it was my mistake to not read the fine print, I thought Class II meant 5000 lbs towing weight with 500 lbs tongue weight...nope! It specifically says on the web site, for my Kia, that it's 3500 lbs and 350 lbs. Oh well...should have read better. I docked it a star for not having warned me better that it's actually a Class II for my application...they could have because on their site you enter your vehicle specifics. Overall, relatively cheap, easy to install, and looks good (I wouldn't call it hidden though).
