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 Toyota 4Runner or Lexus GX 470 (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 5,500 lbs. and the tongue weight capacity to 550 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.

I got the CURT hitch installed at UHAUL for $200. What a bargain! I got quotes for the Draw-Tite equivalent for $340 - $516! Plus I was able to make an installation appointment on the same day, which was a Saturday - I'm very happy. Plus the (CURT) accessories at UHAUL are very reasonably priced and the quality is top-shelf. As an engineer, I prefer the diagonal/straight tubes of the Draw-Tite. As an artist, I prefer the aesthetics of the CURT. As they are both rated for 5000 Lbs, I'll go with CURT. I will credit Draw-Tite for providing a mount for the (displaced) factory electrical connector. CURT has ignored this important detail with a vague warning. The UHAUL tech was savvy enough to reverse the factory connector in it's mount - kudgy, but adequate for my (no off-road) use. CURT + UHAUL = NO BRAINER!
