Whatever your task at hand — whether it”s launching that boat before daybreak, setting up your camper before the rush or getting a final load to the dump before close — CURT class 3 trailer hitches offer the strength needed for serious towing. They make it easy to hitch up and Bring It®, offering a vehicle-specific fit and the weight capacity to handle most non-commercial trailers.
Custom class 3 trailer hitches are the most common type of receiver hitch for the pickup truck and SUV. Because of their weight range, they are also found on the full-size car, crossover and minivan. However, each custom class 3 is made vehicle-specific. This particular model is designed to be a custom receiver hitch for certain years of the Nissan Pathfinder (to verify vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide at curtmfg.com). It provides a weight carrying capacity of 6,000 lbs. GTW and 900 lbs. TW. It is also rated to be used with a weight distributing hitch, offering a WD capacity of 6,000 lbs. and a WDTW of 900 lbs.
With a higher weight capacity, CURT class 3 trailer hitches are typically used to tow utility trailers, boat trailers, larger campers, snowmobile or ATV haulers, small livestock trailers and more (NOTE: Never exceed the lowest weight capacity of any towing component). Each class 3 has a 2″ receiver tube and is tested according to SAE J684 standards for safety.
To ensure that CURT class 3 receiver hitches have what it takes for serious trailering, each one is made in the USA to be strong and dependable. They are designed using a hands-on approach and are constructed with high-strength steel and precise welding. We also protect our class 3 hitches in a co-cured finish of liquid Bonderite® and black powder coat for superior resistance to rust, chipping and UV damage. Plus, to give you the confidence to Bring It® no matter what your next task is, all class 3 hitches are backed by a one-year finish warranty and a limited lifetime warranty.
