Curt MFG just put a 2” hitch on their web site for $290. Part #13478.I don’t know it the factory hitch will be better, but I have seen many, many aftermarket hitches with a ton of rust! I don’t know why these manufacturers can’t use better steel for this application.
Just received my Curt hitch from E trailer.com. Going to install tomorrow. I am using the Kia OEM wiring harness for lights.I just finished the installation of the Curt Receiver Hitch part# 13478 on my new Carnival. It was not easy to install, but it looks great. I purchased the Hitch from AutoAccessoriesGarage for $217.99, free shipping and it to wait 2 weeks to get it because Curt was waiting for them to be fabricated and shipped.
