    Curt Round Tube Class 3 Receiver Hitches offer advantages that the competition can't match! Curt's weathertight construction uses closed-end main bodies so dirt and water can't enter the receiver hitch, which prevents rust from the inside out. Precise robotic welding ensures Curt Hitches have superior strength and fit. Additionally, Curt powdercoating is second-to-none. Curt mechanically descales the steel and washes it extensively before applying the optimum thickness of powdercoating. Curt is so confident in the quality of their receiver hitches that they back them up with a limited lifetime warranty and 1-year finish warranty.
