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 5,000 lbs. and a comparable tongue weight capacity of 500 lbs. It is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the Ford Explorer Sport Trac (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide at curtmfg.com). It features a round 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. 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 6,000 lbs. and the tongue weight capacity to 600 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. Our hitches are our pride, and as such, we back them up with a limited lifetime warranty and a one-year finish warranty.

looks good and stout
I installed this hitch on my 2001 sport trac laying on my back in maybe 30 minutes. The contoured tubes looks great and with the electrical bracket that Curt sells for 7 way (rewired the junk 4 flat with 7 way plug), the hitch looks awesome. Strength wise, I've used this hitch for about 6-7 years now for hauling wood (Oak and pallets) for my wood stove and this hitch never even flexes. I routinly pull close or even a little over the weight limit but I feel safe knowing that if the truck can handle it, the hitch definently will. Good job guys! Kris
Every part fit perfect
Just to let you know I installed your 13407 hitch on my 2005 Sport Trac today and I was so impressed. Every part fit perfect. The workmanship you put into this hitch is outstanding. I admire quality. Thanks you, Dayle
