The CURT class 3 trailer hitch is the most common type of trailer hitch installed on full-size pickup trucks and SUVs. It is also found on full-size cars, crossover SUVs, minivans and mid-size trucks. That is because the class 3 packs the punch of a heavyweight hitch while still staying light on its feet. This CURT class 3 hitch offers a gross trailer weight capacity of 3,500 lbs. and a comparable tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs. It is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the Ford Freestar van or Mercury Monterey minivan (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide at curtmfg.com). It features a square tube frame and comes with all necessary hardware for a complete installation.The 2" x 2" receiver tube opening of this class 3 hitch is able to accept a hitch-mounted accessory, such as a bike rack or cargo carrier, or a ball mount to tow most standard size trailers, including utility trailers, single-horse livestock trailers, boat trailers and large campers. One special feature about the class 3 that is not found in classes 1 or 2 is its compatibility with a weight distribution hitch. When used in combination with a WD hitch, this class 3's gross trailer weight capacity increases to 5,000 lbs. and the tongue weight capacity to 500 lbs. (NOTE: Never exceed the lowest weight capacity of any towing component).CURT class 3 trailer hitches are engineered to be strong and capable, having a quality steel frame and a solid finish. They are put through strenuous testing before being deemed ready for market and come with two coatings -- a liquid Bonderite coating and a powder coat in high-gloss black -- that cure together to form a strong resistance against rust, scratching, UV damage and other wear. Our hitches are our pride, and as such, we back them up with a limited lifetime warranty and a one-year finish warranty.

Otherwise everything fits like a glove. It's recommended to have 2 people installing the hitch as it weights 45 lbs. I installed the hitch by myself, using stands to hold it up, thus it took me 40 minutes, otherwise, 2 people could manage this under 30 minutes. Don't forget to unhook the muffler from the rubber hanger in the back, spray some penetrating oil for easier removal. Using a good weight hammer to bang in/position the hitch is a must as it is a tight/exact fit.
Curt products are very good Quality. Highly recommended.
The fit was perfect for my Ford Freestar 2005, but it was not easy to install for a novice.
Someone commented somewhere that it took 90 minutes for their husband to install on a 2004 Freestar and the instructions say 30 min.
I'd say it took me about 7 or 8 hours and I was ready a couple of times to face the smirking uhaul guy to finish off the job I couldn't complete but I finally ended up getting all six bolts into the receiver and the frame.
Here are the things I learned:
1. After I found the screw to drop the muffler, it was easy, but I had to stare for a bit before I found it.
2. I found a plastic seed pail about 4" shorter than the perfect height to balance the receiver on while I worked.
3. I spent about 80 minutes doing things out of order until I really read the instructions carefully. The order of bolts is about the only way you can get the job done. I caused my own delays for 75 minutes or so there.
4. The machining on the receiver and on 2005 Ford Freestar matched up wonderfully in the end. Ford and Curt got it right -- but the tolerances are tight. So, that meant I had to use a rubber mallet, two screw drivers, the van's jack, and a pry bar to finally squeeze all six holes into the exact right place.
5. I had never fishwired a bolt into place and this time I got a chance to fishwire all six of them! I wasn't paying attention and I started trying to undo the fishwire the wrong way -- which made the wire deform and everything else after that was a little more touch and go. I also reverse fishwired -- pushing the coiled end through then attaching the bolt and then pulling it through back again!
6. 75 foot-pounds is a large amount of torque and, for a novice like me, not easy to get leverage on.
7. I needed a 3/4" deep socket to finish it off because enough bolt came through to foil my regular socket.
The receiver itself was pristeen and the coating was a very solid black shiny coating that you'd want on such a receiver.
I finished the last two bolts off this morning and I can tell I'll be sore for a few days. But I am triumphant that I needed no additional help to get the job done.
I just checked the local uhaul site though and -- if their class III receiver hitch is as good as the one I have, I only saved $50 and I had to buy my own torque wrench so now I'm pretty sure I won't install the next one.
