CURT Manufacturing Develops Multi-Fit Trailer Hitch Option

Tue Mar 28, 2017

149071625853631.jpgEau Claire, Wisconsin - CURT Manufacturing has developed the ultimate multi-fit trailer hitch option for the retail customers: the #13902 and #13903. Together, these two hitches fit nearly every full-size pickup from Chevy, Ford, GMC, Dodge and Ram from 1999 to 2017. That's 498 applications and counting.

These two CURT class 3 multi-fit trailer hitches were specifically designed with the company's retail customers in mind. For dealers who prefer the convenience of a universal hitch, the #13902 and #13903 allow you to provide a hitch for the majority of pickup truck owners who come into your shop. Rather than stocking hundreds of vehicle-specific hitches, all you need on the shelf are two boxes.

Both of these multi-fit trailer hitches are built to work hard, featuring a GTW rating of 8,000 pounds and a WD rating of 12,000 pounds. They come with a durable powder coat finish, a limited lifetime warranty and informative, full-color retail packaging to attract customers and give your plan-o-grams a professional touch.
