  • Will the Hidden Hitch Class III Trailer Hitch, item # 87440 Fit the 2010 Honda CR-V

  • Will the Hidden Hitch Part # 60809 fit a 2008 Ford Mustang with Flowmaster Exhaust
  • While the Hidden Hitch part # 60809 has not been tested to fit your 2008 Ford Mustang with aftermarket exhaust like what you have there is a chance it could still fit. If your aftermarket exhaust retains the factory dimensions and routing (or close to it) then it could work. Check out the picture I attached to see what the factory exhaust looks like in relation to this hitch being installed. I did a little research online and was able to determine that most people were able to install this

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet
  • The only hitch I can recommend for your 2014 Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet is the Curt Hitch part # 13577 at this time it is the only hitch we carry that is confirmed to fit the Cross Cabriolet model Muranos. I know its not as aesthetically appealing as you want, but it would do an excellent job towing your jet ski and would be less visible than you would think as most would not notice it there. We've installed this hitch a few times on Muranos and found the installation process pretty straig

  • Recommended Class III Receiver Hitch for 2013 Toyota Highlander Hybrid
  • Of the hitches available for your Highlander (see link), the Curt # 13534 will accommodate a full sized spare, is compatible with the Hybrid model, and would allow for the best ground clearance. Therefore, the Curt Class III hitch is what I would recommend for you. All the available hitches would require that the tow hooks be permanently removed, and would require the removal or trimming of the underbody appearance panel. The panel being trimmed or removed will not be noticeable, as the panel

  • You will need to hardwire the Pilot Brake Controller # 80550 in your 19997 International 4900 as there isn't a brake controller port. To do that check out the FAQ article I attached on installing a brake controller from scratch on a vehicle. Basically the blue wire of the controller will get run to the brake output circuit of your trailer connector, the black wire will run to the positive side of your batter through a circuit breaker like part # 38630.

This is an easy bolt-on installation and comes with the required hardware. For a bike carrier I recommend the Highland SportWing 2 Bike Rack, part # 5801200.

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible Turbo
  • Curt trailer hitch # C11354, is a fit for the convertible and gas turbo models of the 2013 Volkswagen Beetle. This is a Class I trailer hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver. On a Class I trailer hitch you are limited to 2 bikes at most and the bike rack has to be Class I compatible. I recommend the Swagman Trailhead, # S63360. It is Class I compatible, it can tilt down, it has anti-sway cradles, and it has a rise in the shank for additional ground clearance. I have linked a video review of this r

  • Is Drilling Required to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2011 Nissan Altima
  • All of the trailer hitches for your 2011 Nissan Altima require drilling and temporary removal of the muffler for installation. All of them also are rated for 2,000 pounds gross trailer weight and 200 pounds tongue weight so they can handle a trailer up to those capacities. Check the Altima owners manual for its towing capacities and go by the lower rating. Given what is required to install the hitch it may be worth saving yourself the time and effort and having it professionally installed by

  • Is Hidden Hitch Tow Hitch # 87648 a Fit for my 2014 Jeep Latitude
  • Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 87648 is a fit for all models of 2014 Jeep Cherokee except Trailhawk models, so it will fit your Latitude. This Class III hitch has a maximum gross trailer weight of 5,000 pounds and a tongue weight of 600 pounds. This hitch does not allow use of weight distribution. I recommend you review your Cherokee owner's manual to verify your vehicle's weight/towing capacities, which may differ from those for the hitch. If different, the lower of the two becomes the over

  • Recommendation for Adding a Bike Carrier to a 2005 Jayco Designer 35 5th Wheel
  • My first suggestion would be to contact Jayco to determine if they recommend using a hitch on the rear of your 2005 Jayco Designer 35 Fifth Wheel. You will want to provide them with your VIN for the most accurate information. If they ok the use of a hitch, ask them for the recommended weight capacity. This will be the maximum amount of weight that can be safely hauled on the back of the trailer. Keep in mind that trailer hitches are not designed to fit specific trailers. A couple measurements

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2003 Chevy Venture Needing to Transport a 460 lb Power Chair
  • For your vehicle there currently isn't a hitch available that would have the capacity to carry the weight of your power chair (460 lbs) plus the weight of a carrier. If your 2003 Chevy Venture is your only option for transporting the power chair your only real option would be to get a small trailer. A hitch like the # 87410 would work well for this, but it only has the tongue weight rating of 350 lbs which is not enough for the 460 lb scooter on a carrier. Wit a trailer most of the weigh

  • Does the Hidden Hitch part # 87034 Require Drilling Into Frame to Install on a 1987 Chevy Truck
  • Yes, you will need to drill a total of six 1/2 inch diameter holes into the frame of your 1987 Chevy truck. I checked the installation instructions (which are attached) and was able to determine this. Since you have a 6 foot bed you will also need the Spacer Block for 75034 Trailer Hitch # 01077-011. You will need a quantity of 6 of these. They will install between the frame and the hitch.

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2009 Subaru Legacy Sedan to Carry a Scooter Carrier
  • The Hidden Hitch part # 87446 that you referenced is the correct hitch for your 2009 Subaru Legacy Sedan. This hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 400 lbs, so that means that if the weight of your 290 lb scooter and carrier together weighs less than 400 lbs this hitch should work well for you. Basically if your carrier weighs less than 110 lbs (which it should) you would be fine. However, you need to also check the owners manual of your vehicle and determine what Subaru lists as the tongue

  • Trailer Hitch Comparison for a Mazda CX-5 Hidden Hitch # 87623 versus Curt # 13127
  • I have provided a link to the hitches that are confirmed as a fit for your vehicle. When comparing the Hidden Hitch Class III trailer hitch to the Curt # C13127 Class III they are very similar, and the weight capacities are the same. I have included a photo of the two hitches installed, and yes the Hidden Hitch option is recessed a little bit more under the vehicle than the Curt option. This is likely due to the profile of the hitch, and mounting style. The Hidden Hitch option uses a total o

  • Hitch and Towing Setup Recommendation for a 2008 Buick CXS
  • Since your 2008 Buick Lucerne is not a Special or Super model the recommended hitch for you would be the Draw-Tite hitch part # 36309. I attached installation instructions and an install video for you to check out. You will need to remove the exhaust from the rear hangers so that the exhaust can be temporarily lowered to install the hitch, but this is common on most hitch installs and would not be considered extra work or even be that difficult.

  • How Visible are the Available Hitches for the 2014 Toyota Corolla
  • Honestly, all of the hitches that are available for your 2014 Toyota Corolla will be just as visible as the next. The round crosstube of the hitch and the hitch opening will be visible but out of plain sight. The reason the Hidden Hitch part # 60345 costs more than the other hitches is because it comes with a ball mount and a pin and clip. If you don't plan on doing any towing and only plan on carrying bike racks then this would not be the best option for you. The Draw Tite # 24913 tha

  • Weight Distribution for a 2500 Pound Trailer with 320 Pounds Dry Tongue Weight
  • Based on the weights you have provided it looks like the trailer tongue weight is about 13 percent of the gross trailer weight. If you were to add 600 pounds to the trailer than would bring the gross trailer weight to 3,100 pounds and the tongue weight to 403 pounds. You will want to check your trailer hitch for the weight distribution capacities, if it is rated for it, and the vehicle owners manual to determine if it is rated for use with weight distribution.

  • Looking for Trailer Hitch for 2009 Pontiac G3 Wave Sedan to Haul Bikes, Small Trailer, and Kayaks
  • I have a couple options for you when it comes to transporting bikes and kayaks with your 2009 Pontiac G3 Wave Sedan. After searching through the owner's manual for the G3, I found the section that states the vehicle is neither designed nor intended to tow a trailer. Due to this and a lack of demand, there are no trailer hitches available for your vehicle. Although you are unable to tow a trailer, you would still have the capability of hauling bikes and kayaks by installing a roof rack. A coup
