Expert Answers about Hidden Hitch

  • Will a Receiver Hitch Work on an I-Beam Frame on My 5th Wheel Trailer
  • I do not believe the 82201 Multi-Fit Motor Home Hitch is the best option for your I-beam frame. We have an adjustable width trailer hitch for the RV, part number 13703, that would most likely work better. With this hitch you would be able to install the brackets on the inside of the I-beam and would have 6 bolts holding it in place providing a much larger mounting surface than the other hitch. The distance from the bend in the mounting plates where it sits on the I-beam to the top of...

  • What is the Towing Capacity of a 2010 Dodge Journey SXT with Trailer Hitch # 87487 Installed
  • If Dodge has rated your 2010 Journey for 3,500 pounds gross trailer weight, that is the maximum the vehicle can tow, even if a trailer hitch is rated higher. The limiting factor is the component with the lowest capacity, which is the rating you need to go by. Adding weight distribution will not increase the towing capacity of the vehicle. The towing capacity of the vehicle remains static at 3,500 pounds. To complete your towing setup you may need the following: Ball Mount Kit, part...

  • What Towing Package Is Available For 2008 Toyota Highlander
  • You will want to check your owners manual or with the Toyota dealer for the gross towing weight capacity of your 2008 Toyota Highlander to make sure the towing capacity is not exceeded. Even if the hitch will have a higher weight capacity than your vehicles gross towing weight capacity the towing capacity is determined by the lowest weight capacity in your whole towing setup. The Hidden Hitch Class III 2 Inch Hitch, # 87452, that you have referenced is a good choice for your 2008 Toyota...

  • Trailer Hitch to Carry a Generator on the Back of a Travel Trailer
  • For a cargo carrier holding a generator at the back of a travel trailer I definitely recommend installing a frame mounted trailer hitch. It is unlikely that a bumper will be rated high enough to carry the generator and carrier and be able to withstand the stresses involved. If your trailer has a frame that measures 31 inches to 46 inches wide, I recommend installing hitch # 82200. I have included a link to the installation details and I recommend having the hitch professionally installed....

  • Recommended Receiver Hitch for 2012 Nissan Murano
  • As long as the towing capacity of the vehicle is not exceeded and the hitch is installed properly, according to the hitch manufacturers instructions, there should be no adverse warranty implications from installing a hitch. The # 87486 Class III hitch you mentioned is manufactured by Hidden Hitch, a very respected hitch manufacturer. I have provided you with a side-by-side photo showing both the Curt # 13577 and the Hidden Hitch model installed on a 2012 Murano. As you can see in the...

  • Trailer Hitch Installation Difficulty on a 2014 Jeep Cherokee Latitude
  • Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 87648 is indeed a fit for all models of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee excluding Trailhawk models so it will fit your Latitude. Trailer hitch installation is something that you can do at home but I do recommend having an assistant because hitches are heavy and getting them in the right place and tightening hardware at the same time is difficult for one person to do alone. All 2014 Jeep Cherokees will have the holes for the hitch already in the frame. You will not...

  • Can Fascia Door of 2011 GMC Terrain Be Reinstalled Once Hitch is Installed
  • All of the Class III receivers available for your 2012 Terrain are similar in the way they would sit in relation to the rear bumper of the vehicle. The primary difference between the Curt # 13591 and the Draw-Tite # 76028 is that the Draw-Tite model uses two additional connection points into the bottom of the frame member. Although both hitches share the same weight rating, having extra connection points to the vehicle frame is desirable. I would recommend the Draw-Tite Class III receiver,...

  • Recommended Bike Rack Style for a 2010 Ford Escape
  • There are many options in bike racks for your 2010 Ford Escape. Your choice depends on how many bikes you are wanting to carry and the weight of the bikes. For your vehicle, the best would be either a hitch bike rack or a trunk mounted bike rack. The roof bike rack for your Ford Escape is not the best choice, because it requires lifting the bike to the roof of the vehicle. The hitch bike rack is a excellent choice, but it does require you have a trailer hitch on the back of your vehicle...

  • How Far Below the Bottom Edge of Bumper Fascia Do Hitches For 2013 Volvo XC60 Extend
  • The Hidden Hitch # 87566, Draw-Tite # 75671 and Curt # 13268 Class III hitches all feature a durable powder coated finish. As you can see in the accompanying photo I provided, both hitches will have about a 1 inch reveal below the bottom edge of the bumper fascia. Keep in mind that if your XC60 is the R Design model, some fascia trimming might be needed. All three hitches would install in the same manner, and share identical weight capacities. I'd recommend the Curt # 13268 as it's the...

  • Which Hitch is Better for a 2010 Subaru Forester Hidden Hitch 87493 or Curt Hitch 13147
  • The Curt part # 13147 and Hidden Hitch part 87493 are similar designs as they are built to fit the same vehicles. There are a couple of key differences that may help you in making a decision. Curt uses a high-gloss black finish on their hitches and the Hidden Hitch is not so glossy. If you want a duller finish go with the Hidden Hitch. If you like high-gloss black, use the Curt. Additionaly, in this model, Curt uses round tube for the cross member and Hidden Hitch uses square tube....

  • Trailer Towing Capacity of 2005 Chrysler Town & Country Touring Edition
  • I have done some research, and have found that the tow capacity of your 2005 Chrysler Town & Country is 3700 lbs. You will want to check in your owners manual to confirm the towing capacity. Also, it is important to remember that your towing capacity is limited by the lowest rated component in the towing system, including: vehicle, hitch, ball mount, hitch ball or the capacity of your trailer. To complete your towing system, you might be interested in the following: Trailer wiring...

The manufacturer of both of these hitches is the same.

You can view the install details and see an install video by clicking the provided links. Since your Escape has the back up sensors, you would need to use part # 118551.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2016 Honda Accord LX Sedan
  • We offer three choices in a light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class I trailer hitch for your 2016 Honda Accord sedan. Since all share identical weight capacities I suggest the lowest-priced option which is the Hidden Hitch # 60325. Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite are sister companies, although the Hidden Hitch brand has recently been dissolved. The two hitches are exactly the same so you might as well save a few dollars and go for the Hidden Hitch version. To assist your installation I have linked the...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2009 Toyota Highlander that Accommodates 19 Inch Full Size Spare
  • I have a trailer hitch option that will allow you to keep your 19 inch spare under your 2009 Toyota Highlander, but the Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch # 75586 and the Hidden Hitch Class III # 87452 will not fit with your 19 inch spare tire. In order for the full size spare tire to still be able to be stowed under the vehicle, I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Round Tube Receiver # 75726. Installation of this hitch will require removal of the tow hooks and, if present,...

  • Comparing Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitches for a 2010 Ford Escape

Both hitches can be used with weight distribution systems. They even share the same instructions. You should not have to do anything with any part of the exhaust to install this trailer hitch.

  • Transmission Cooler and Towing Accessories for Towing 3000 lb Trailer with 2011 Ford Escape
  • According to my research, the 2011 Escape has a tow rating between 1500-3500 lbs, depending on how the vehicle was equipped. You can call your Ford dealer with the VIN number, and they should be able to tell you the tow rating of you vehicle as it is equipped. If you should find that the actual tow capacity of your Escape is exceeded by the weight of the trailer, you will either want to get a trailer whose weight falls within the tow capacity of the Escape or use a different vehicle to...

  • Maximum Tongue Weight Capacity of 2015 Nissan Rogue with Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • According to the information that I was able to obtain from an online owner's manual, the 2015 Nissan Rogue is going to have a tongue weight capacity of 110 lbs. Even though a hitch like the Hidden Hitch, # HH87663, offers a tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs, you will be bound by the component with the lesser rating which would be the Rogue.

  • The Hidden Hitch Class III Trailer Hitch, # 87636, and the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Hitch, # 75774, are designed by the same manufacturer and will require the same installation procedures. Removing or bending of the tabs on the bumper fascia is only necessary if they interfere with the installation of the hitch. There will be two tabs that you will see on the left and right side under the bumper fascia near the exhaust pipes. They may push against the left and right sides of the...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for Pulling a Pop Up Camper with a 2011 Toyota Rav4 with Rear Spare Tire
  • The standard ball mount that is recommended for the 2011 RAV4 has a 2 inch drop and a 3/4 inch rise and in most cases the # 80232 ball mount will be correct, but this does not mean that it will be the correct ball mount height for towing your trailer. The height of your trailer coupler and the height of the top of the receiver opening on your RAV4, when parked on a fairly level surface with the trailer frame level, will be needed to determine the correct ball mount drop or rise that...

  • Is it Necessary to Torque Hitch Bolts with a Torque Wrench on Hidden Hitch 87438 for a Mazda CX-9
  • Yes you should torque the bolts down properly with a torque wrench. Torque wrenches can be found at any store that carries a good selection of automotive tools. The torque rating for the bolts with this hitch, currently, are listed for 76 Lb.-Ft. This number can change if the manufactuerer changes hardware or if Mazda were to adjust the frame, so always check the instructions included with the hitch for torque rating.
