A CURT bumper hitch mounts onto your vehicle’s bumper, rather than the frame, and provides a receiver tube for a ball mount, cargo carrier, bike rack or other hitch-mounted accessory. Unlike a bumper mount, which is simply a hole in the vehicle’s bumper for installing a trailer ball, a bumper hitch allows for adjustment and flexibility in towing application. CURT receiver-style bumper mount hitches accept a 2” x 2” ball mount shank and can tow up to 5,000 lbs. of gross trailer weight and 500 lbs. of tongue weight. With a weight distribution system installed, a bumper hitch receiver can tow up to 6,000 lbs. This makes the bumper hitch a great choice for hauling many types of trailers, including boat trailers, utility trailers, pop-up camper, livestock trailers and more. It should be noted, however, that the weight carrying capacity is always dependent on the bumper’s weight capacity rating.
CURT bumper mount hitches come with a gloss black powder coat finish and provide a simple towing solution. They easily bolt onto the bottom of a step bumper on a pickup truck or SUV and offer a lower hitch point to provide level trailer towing. Each model comes complete with mounting hardware and safety chain hookups.
