Expert Answers about Hidden Hitch

  • Why are Some Trailer Hitches Rated for Weight Distribution and Others Are Not
  • Weight distribution systems are quite helpful for towing but not every hitch can be used with them. The issue is that the spring bar tension that the system puts on the vehicle and hitch can be too much and could potentially damage either. It's not that the vehicle itself wouldn't benefit from a WD system it's that the torque the system puts on the attachment points for the hitch and/or vehicle just would be too much. The Hidden Hitch part # 87626 that you referenced is rated for...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon that is Most Hidden
  • In terms of visibility the Hidden Hitch part # 87568 is going to be your best option. It does not stick out nearly as much as the Curt # C13206 does. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If the ball mount kit does not include...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Toyota RAV4 SE
  • I spoke with my contact at Hidden Hitch and he said that their part # 87697 would fit your 2016 Toyota RAV4 SE. He said they do not have any fit exclusions for the trim models of the RAV4 like yours so it would fit and work well. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball,...

  • Hitch Fit for a 2016 Honda Pilot with Lower Chrome Bumper
  • I pulled up pictures of the 2016 Honda Pilot with the chrome lower section and the rear fascia does not extend any lower than the already really low rear fascia of the 2016 Pilot so a hitch like the Hidden Hitch part # 87691 would fit and work well. In an absolute worst case scenario there would be some minor trimming required to get the hitch to fit. But if you check out the install instructions for the Hidden Hitch that I attached it shows this hitch installed on a few different rear...

  • Trailer Hitch, Wiring and Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2016 Cadillac XTS
  • For a hitch for your 2016 Cadillac XTS for doing some towing you would want the Hidden Hitch part # 90225 which has been confirmed as a fit and includes a ball mount and a pin and clip. For a 1-7/8 inch ball you would then need the part # 19256 and for a 2 inch ball part # 19258. For trailer wiring you would want the part # 119179KIT. To pick out a transmission cooler you will want to go with the largest one that will fit the available space in front of the radiator/AC condenser....

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring For 2012 Mazda 3 Grand Touring Sedan
  • The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2013 Mazda 3 sedan is the Hidden Hitch Class I Receiver Hitch # 60258. This trailer hitch comes with the recommended drawbar for the hitch, since you are planning on towing. I have attached an installation video of this hitch on a 2010 Mazda 3 for you. I strongly recommend checking your owner's manual for the towing capacity of your vehicle, but the hitch offers a gross trailer weight capacity of 2,000 pounds with a maximum tongue weight of 200 pounds....

  • Why Do Trailer Hitches for 2016 Honda Pilot Sit Low
  • For your 2016 Honda Pilot the only hitch options we have are ones like the Curt hitch part # C13146 which hangs below the rear fascia. I understand not wanting a hitch that sits super low but hitch manufacturers can only work with how the vehicle is designed. And most people don't like to trim the lower fascia of the vehicle to install the hitch so they designed it to fit right below the rear bumper like the picture I attached.

  • Do Hitch Extenders Work Without Capacity Reduction When Flat Towing
  • For flat towing purposes the capacity of the hitch does not get reduced that same since the 4 wheels being on the ground prevents vertical tongue weight from being put on the hitch. We sell high-low adapters that work in a similar way and they do not reduce towing capacities either. If you need 18 inches of extension the part # HE18 that you referenced would work well for this.

  • The Reese # 33041 has been discontinued and is no longer available, but the Hidden Hitch # 70498 is the same exact hitch with the Hidden Hitch brand name. The hitch will work just fine on 2002 Rodeo models with the spare tire stored under the vehicle. You won't need to make any modifications.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch And Bike Carrier For Fat Bikes On 2003 Chevrolet Malibu
  • It sounds like you are looking for a trailer hitch for your 2003 Malibu to carry a bike rack. The trailer hitch I recommend for your Malibu is the Hidden Hitch trailer hitch, part # 90131. This is a Class ll hitch and it has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. When you are choosing a bike rack you want to make sure that it will have enough clearance at the rear of your vehicle. I have attached a helpful article that explains how you take measurements to make sure you can attach a bike...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2009 Dodge Ram
  • From zooming in on the picture you submitted it looks like you have a Reese hitch part # 37042. The only information I could find on a hitch number 37042 is that it fits the Ford Escape. For a hitch designed to fit a 2009 Dodge Ram without factory hitch you would want the part # 13333.

  • Adapter to Mate 6-Way Square Trailer Connector to 4-Pole Flat Vehicle Connector
  • First, thank you for including the photo of your pop-up trailer's connector. Photos always helps us help you. You are correct that Hidden Hitch Jayco adapter # 30104 will let you connect a 4-pole flat connector to a 6-way square connector on a Jayco brand trailer but your Dutchmen 801D may not be wired with the same pin configuration. You can try this part and it might indeed work, and if it does not you could cut it and re-wire the two sides to the appropriate set up using butt connectors. Or,...

  • Replacement Safety Chain Recommendation for Horse Trailer with Chains that are Too Short
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled safety chain quick link # 49135 to measure for you. With the nut fully opened the opening is just over 1/2 an inch (0.52 inches). If you can fit the opening over you current safety chains they should work well as these have a 10k capacity each. A better solution would be to replace your current safety chains with something like the part # 49150 as this is a 44 inch safety chain kit with a 16k capacity. Or for a 35 inch chain part # 1483-535-04.

  • Hitch Extender Recommendation for a Can Am Commander for Salt Spreader
  • If your Can Am Commander has a 2 inch hitch the hitch extender that would most likely work best for you would be the # HE18. This product has more than enough capacity for your spreader, but you should note that when you use a hitch extender like this you end up cutting the capacity of the hitch in half due to the additional leverage created. You will need to make sure the hitch on your Commander has at least twice the capacity for the weight of your salt spreader. Especially if your...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Kia Forte
  • The Hidden Hitch part # 60335 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your 2014 Kia Forte. When you install an aftermarket part on your vehicle like a trailer hitch in this case, you are protected by the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act. This act states, in part, that unless the installation and the part caused a problem then the warranty cannot be voided. I recommend looking it up online. Normally we recommend that you always follow any and all towing restrictions for a vehicle that...

  • When the Pilot 2-6 Brake Electronic Brake Controller # 80550 that you referenced displays the letter c it means the controller senses that it is connected to a trailer with trailer brakes.

  • Do Tongue Weight Ratings Take Into Account Bumps In Roads
  • Since you are below the tongue weight capacity of your vehicle you will be fine. When hitch manufacturers set the weight capacities for a hitch they consider that the load will be on roads where there will be bumps and turns. The tongue weight rating is not a purely static figure. As long as the roads you are travelling on aren't ridiculously bumpy you would be just fine. Also, you need to check the owners manual of your 2008 Mazda CX-7 to determine what Mazda sets as the max tongue...

  • Parts Needed to Tow a Motorcycle on a Trailer with a 2012 Fiat 500
  • First, since the owners manual says 500 pounds, you will want to keep it at or under 500 pounds. The Fiat 500 is a small vehicle not really used for towing. Every pound counts and you would not want to overload it and end up with frame, drive train, or transmission damage. Since you will be towing I recommend Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 60289. It comes with a ball mount, pin, and clip. If the trailer requires a 1-7/8 inch ball (it should sway on top of the trailer coupler) then use...

  • Installing a Class III Hitch on a 2008 Jeep Wrangler Does Not Require Drilling
  • No, you will not need to drill any holes in the frame of your 2008 Jeep Wrangler to install the Hidden Hitch Class III hitch, item # 87424.

Below is a link to the installation instructions for your review.

  • Will a Trailer Hitch Fit a 1996 Ford Ranger with Large Spare Tire Holder Bracket
  • I am not sure the spare tire holder on your 1996 Ford Ranger is stock. Regardless there does not appear to be enough room for the hitch to fit with that bracket in the way. To install a trailer hitch you would likely have to stow the spare in the truck bed so that the bracket could be moved out of the way. The only way to know for sure is to test it. For your 1996 Ranger there is also a special note: 19mm open end style wrench must be purchased to allow removal of spare tire after hitch...

  • Installing Trailer Hitch When Holes Do Not Line Up With Vehicle Frame
  • I went to our installation area and spoke with our installers about your Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 87486. They told me that they install several hitches that seem to be bent a bit or the holes are misaligned, much like you described. They said they use an alignment tool, which is just a tapered steel rod with an end small enough to fit in one of the bolt attach holes on the frame. They place the rod through the hole in the hitch indicated by the red arrow in the attached...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2012 Chevy Camaro Convertible
  • The frame on the convertible models has some differences with regular hardtop models and some hitches will not fit. We do have a trailer hitch that you can use on your convertible 2012 Chevy Camaro as long as it does not have the ground effects package. You can use Curt trailer hitch # C11222.
