Once we came to the boundaries of towing capacity, we would have liked to grasp what else was once in the market. What could we find off the beaten path? So, we kept going. CURT class 5 Xtra Duty hitches begin a class of their very own, beyond class 4 and beyond anything the criteria dictate. They’re designed for the hard road where only 1/2-ton, 3/4-ton and 1-ton pickup trucks and SUVs dare to tread. They’re in a position to pulling almost any heavy-duty trailer, including toy haulers, dump trailers, logging trailers, gravity boxes, small yacht trailers and more (NOTE: Never exceed the lowest weight capacity of any towing component).This actual Xtra Duty trailer hitch offers a gross trailer weight capacity of 16,000 lbs. and an extra-high tongue weight capacity of 2,400 lbs. It includes a 2″ x 2″ receiver tube opening to simply accept a ball mount or hitch-mounted accessory, such as a cargo carrier or winch mount, and it’s designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD or 3500 with 6′ bed or GMC Sierra 2500HD or 3500 with 6′ bed (to ensure your vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide at curtmfg.com). For slightly extra towing power and stability, this class 5 hitch can be utilized in combination with a weight distribution system, increasing its gross trailer weight capacity as much as 17,000 lbs.In our drive to create a more powerful hitch, CURT has not neglected the finer details. Our class 5 trailer hitches are welded with precision and go through a couple of stages of cleaning to create a smooth surface that may be in a position to simply accept our co-cured finish. To offer protection to them from corrosion, chipping and UV damage, these hitches are coated first in a liquid Bonderite coating after which finished in a superior black carbide powder coat. They arrive with grade 8 mounting hardware for solid installation and are backed with a one-year finish warranty and overall limited lifetime warranty.
