1997-2004 C5 CURT Class 1 Trailer Hitch
Packing your Corvette for another road trip? Don't leave anything behind with this 1997-2004 C5 CURT Class 1 Trailer Hitch! CURT class 1 trailer hitches are the perfect way to add extra storage space to your Corvette for all events, activities and adventures. A class 1 hitch provides a functional rear receiver tube for attaching a hitch-mounted cargo carrier or bike rack or for towing a light-duty trailer. Class 1 receiver hitches make it easy to pack the things you want without having to cram the trunk full of cargo.
Like all CURT custom trailer hitches, this class 1 trailer hitch is designed to fit your Corvette. A vehicle-specific design ensures the best possible fit with the simplest and most secure installation. The custom-fit design optimizes the installation to eliminate all unnecessary modifications, and it promotes an integrated look that would make you think it's from the factory!
This Corvette hitch is rated to tow up to 2,500 lbs. gross trailer weight and 250 lbs. tongue weight. This makes it an excellent choice for any cargo carrier or bike rack as well as a variety of lightweight trailers (never exceed the lowest-rated towing component). It features a 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" receiver tube to accept a ball mount or other trailer hitch accessories. The hitch receiver tube also has an open back to allow for easy cleaning as needed.
To ensure the safety of you and your passenger, as well as your fellow adventurers on the road, each CURT trailer hitch has been stringently tested in accordance with SAE J684. CURT's in-house testing technology allows for real-time, on-vehicle testing, placing their hitches under the same stresses present in actual towing conditions.
Every CURT custom trailer hitch receiver -- from class 1 to class 5 -- is manufactured right here in the USA to ensure quality from design to finish (may include imported hardware). Each hitch is engineered using real vehicles and a hands-on approach. Each hitch is manufactured using a combination of robotic and manual welding for optimum precision and speed.
Finally, each trailer hitch is finished with a unique co-curing process. The hitch is immersed in a rust-resistant liquid A-coat to coat the entire piece inside and out. Then, a durable black powder coat is applied to seal out rain, dirt, road salt and other threats. Finally, these two coatings are co-cured together, creating an industry-leading rust, chip, and UV-resistant finish.
To give you complete confidence mile after mile, all CURT tow hitches are backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
