When CURT came to the limits of towing capacity, CURT wanted to know what else was out there. What could CURT discover off the beaten path? So, CURT kept going. CURT class 5 Xtra Duty hitches begin a class of their own, beyond class 4 and beyond anything the standards dictate. They are designed for the hard road where only 1/2-ton, 3/4-ton and 1-ton pickup trucks and SUVs dare to tread. They are capable of pulling almost any heavy-duty trailer, including toy haulers, dump trailers, logging trailers, gravity boxes, small yacht trailers and more. This particular Xtra Duty trailer hitch offers a gross trailer weight capacity of 15,000 lbs. and an extra-high tongue weight capacity of 1,500 lbs. It features a 2" x 2" receiver tube opening to accept a ball mount or hitch-mounted accessory, such as a cargo carrier or winch mount, and it is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the Dodge Ram 1500 (except with factory receiver). For a little extra towing power and stability, this class 5 hitch can also be used in combination with a weight distribution system, increasing its gross trailer weight capacity up to 16,000 lbs. and its tongue weight capacity up to 1,600 lbs. In drive to create a more powerful hitch, CURT has not neglected the finer details. CURT class 5 trailer hitches are welded with precision and go through multiple stages of cleaning to create a smooth surface that is ready to accept CURT co-cured finish. To protect them from corrosion, chipping and UV damage, these hitches are coated first in a liquid Bonderite coating and then finished in a high-quality black carbide powder coat. They come with grade 8 mounting hardware for solid installation and are backed with a one-year finish warranty and overall limited lifetime warranty.
