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 Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, Buick Enclave or Saturn Outlook (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. 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.

Bolts wrong size.
Bought this hitch hoping for an easy installation but the bolts are wrong size. .. they are too large (fat). I will have to go out and buy bolts that fit.
Design Flaw for 2015 Chevy Traverse install
The hitch is very well made and the install is not very difficult. The wires used to pull the bolt through the bumper frame work really well, very clever concept. The problem is the carriage bolts that are provided are too large to fit through the openings in the bumper frame. I have a bench grinder so I made a quick modification but if you don't have one it will pose a problem. A few tips: -after grinding the bolts they will need to be pushed through from the rounded end to fit through. I grinded two sides of the rounded head and they barely fit through. -pull each fish wire provided through the plate and opening before you actually attach the bolts. once both wires are pulled though you can do one bolt at a time. this allows you to move the plates enough to get each bolt through. If you pull a bolt through before pulling both wires the plate will block access for the second bolt for the opposing side. -Disconnecting the muffler did almost nothing to help the install. I used a box wrench to tighten the bolt that is partially blocked by the muffler. I would give this five stars if the bolts actually fit.
