Collins Muffler & Hitch provides Orange County with the best value available in premium quality trailer hitch sales and installation. Established in 1974, our family-owned and operated automotive shop has provided reliable trailer hitch installation services for more than 40 years, and is widely respected throughout our local area for our exceptional workmanship and affordable pricing. We can install trailer hitches to accommodate the pulling capacities of all types of cars, SUVs, and both light and heavy duty trucks–for the purpose of towing as little as a bicycle rack to towing as much as a trailer load weighing up to 25,000 pounds. In addition, we can custom-fabricate any desired trailer hitch design, and have a full service welding workshop onsite at our Mission Viejo facility which we utilize for this purpose.

Curt 5th Wheel Hitch

At Collins Muffler & Hitch, we install Class I through Class V trailer hitches, in both bolt-on and weld-on designs, and which have receiver openings which measure from 1.25" to 2 1/2" in size. We also install fifth wheel hitches. We are proud to offer exceptional quality trailer hitches from industry-leading brands such as Draw-Tite, Valley Industries, Curt, EAZ-Lift, and Hidden Hitch, all at unbeatable prices. And because we are committed to providing our valued clients with complete customer satisfaction, we back all of the trailer hitches we install with a lifetime warranty on all installation workmanship and parts.

Choosing a trailer hitch with the right design and towing capacity for your car, van, SUV, or truck is extremely important, and at Collins Trailer & Hitch, we work closely with our valued clients to design the ideal towing systems for their needs as well as their budgets. Trailer hitches are rated on a scale of one through five for both the maximum amount of weight that they can pull, referred to as their "gross trailer weight" (GTW) rating, as well as for the amount of downward force they can withstand from any trailer that they tow, referred to as their "tongue weight" (TW) rating. And under this rating system, Class I trailer hitches are designed to tow relatively light loads, while Class V and fifth wheel trailer hitches are the strongest, and are designed for pulling very heavy loads:

  • Class I - For all vehicles: Towing capacity of up to 2000 lbs. gross trailer weight; 200 lbs. tongue weight.
  • Class II - For mid-size or larger cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs: Towing capacity of up to 3500 lbs. gross trailer weight; 350 lbs. tongue weight.
  • Class III - For mid-size or larger trucks, vans, and SUVs: Towing capacity of up to 6000 lbs. gross trailer weight; 600 lbs. tongue weight.
  • Class IV - For full-size cars, vans, pickup trucks, and SUVs: Towing capacity of up to 12,000 lbs.; 1,200 lbs. tongue weight.
  • Class V - For heavy-duty trucks or vans: Towing capacity of up to 18,000 lbs.; 1800 lbs. tongue weight.
  • Fifth Wheel Hitches - For heavy-duty towing, such as toy trailers, horse trailers, travel trailers, and gooseneck trailers: Towing capacity of up to 25,000 lbs.; 6,250 lbs. tongue weight.

I had purchased an OEM Acura trailer hitch online for my car, and was looking for someone local to put the hitch on. I called several stores in Orange County, and I was quoted a price over the phone by Randy. I brought my car in, they installed the hitch perfectly. Service was fast, and the best price I found around Orange County.
