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 Chevrolet Equinox, GMC Terrain, Pontiac Torrent or Saturn Vue (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 4,000 lbs. and the tongue weight capacity to 400 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.

Like another poster indicated, packaging is woefully inadequate but arrived the only a few dings in the black coating. Insanely over-priced on the Curt site. Don't be suprised if the (4) bolts that tie the hitch into the "frame" rails don't want to thread in to the weld-nuts, as a lot of road debris gets kicked up into this area and gets trapped in these nuts. Needed to use several stainless plumbers brushes, a good a amount of penetrating oil, a few hours to clean out the weld-nuts. Ended up with several bloody knuckles getting the nuts cleaned out. Get a u-boot based hitch tightener from A****n to eliminate the rattle from the play between the receiver tube and the ball mount, or be prepared for a lot of clunking from the rear end as you drive down the road.
13591 hitch and 56094 connector install
First thing is it is wa-a-a-ay overpriced on this site. I bought through Amazon and paid only $128.90 for the hitch and the 56094 connector . The packaging is woefully inadequate. Heavy cardboard box, but the sharp metal corners broke right through. The package had to travel only about 300 miles via UPS from Wixom, MI to Indianapolis, IN. The box had several holes and I feared that it may have lost the hardware and/or the electrical connector. Luckily everything was still there. It was shipped quickly and I got it two days after I placed my order. Outstandig shipping service. The product was as advertised, and installation for the hitch and electrical connector was easy and the instructions were spot on. I did use blue Loctite on the bolts to help keep them from unthreading, although the provided washers should do the job. The product is as advertised, seems to be of vey solid construction. It functions as it should and the electrical connection works flawlessly. I recommend this product as a quality item, but suggest it should be better padded for shipping.
