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 Volvo XC90 (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 5,000 lbs. and the tongue weight capacity to 500 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.

Hitch fits great, easy to install
This hitch is EASY to install. There is a little cutout on the lower valance for the factory hitch. You will have to cut this clearance hole bigger for the Curt. But it's easy to cut the plastic, and it's under the car, so it doesn't show at all. I used a hacksaw blade by hand, but you could use tin-snips too. You need to cut this FIRST before stuffing the hitch up i there. Then it's removing four bolts, and putting SIX back in. A couple things I did different than the instructions. This is on a 2011 XC90. Instructions said to remove the spare. Perhaps it would have been a little easier but I doubt it. I was able to install the hitch easily without removing the spare. Instructions said to use a screwdriver and pry off the rubber grommet supporting the muffler. You DON'T have to do this. Just take the bolts out and rotate the mount out of the way (vertical downward). The bracket hangs on the rubber. Stuff the hitch up in there, then rotate the bracket back in place. It's EASY!
