I was lucky enough to pick the ONLY Flex on the lot without a hitch. My fault for not looking at the back of the car because every other Flex had a hitch ...

So, now I am looking for a hitch that fits my limited non limited eco boost ...

Ordered and sent back at Curt #13551 which "was" told to me to work ... Wrong ...

Anyone put one on yet or will I have to wait?

Same with the wiring harness, no luck there either ...

thanks for any ideas!!!

I have used Etrailer.com with good success in the past. Enter your vehile on there and see if it gives you the same Curt#. They usually have a few different brands.
What didnt fit about it?

I am having the same issue trying to find an aftermarket hitch for 2013 Flex models. So far all I can find that I can validate that fits is the Ford Accessory trailer hitch. I was hoping to find one for much cheaper than the $300+, not including the wiring harness (another $100).

Any information available is greatly appreciated.

There are several harness adapters available from various suppliers, however, a word of caution, if they do not provide a separate power feed to isolate the trailer from the vehicle, there is a risk of damaging the wiring in the car. The wires for the tail lights are sized to provide only the amount of current needed to power the lights in the tail assemblies and could overheat if they are also used to power the trailer lights.  Ford does list a plug in module now, but I have not seen the actual unit, so cant comment on how its installed, the one I have installed requires quite a bit of work as you have to remove all the trim panels to get the wiring run, and run a power feed through the firewall for it.  This last part I found a solution to that is actually fairly simple, the only difficult part was working under the dash to secure the wires.
