Trailer Hitch Installation - 2012 Scion xB - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2012 Scion XB we'll be installing the Draw-Tite Hitch, part number 24815. This is what it looks like once our hitch is installed. Next, we'll go ahead and give you a couple of measurements to assist you with selecting accessories for your new hitch. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper is 3 inches, from the top of the receiver tube to the ground is 11-1/4 inches. This will assist you with selecting accessories such as a bike rack or a cargo carrier. Now let's go ahead with the installation.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2009 Scion xB

Today on this 2009 Scion xB we will be installing trailer hitch part number 12490 from Curt. Okay we are underneath the vehicle and we are taking a look at the passenger-side frame rail. I am going to go ahead and point out the mounting locations for the trailer hitch. As you can see here at the end of the frame rail we have got three existing weld nuts, and we are going to be using those as our attaching points. We will be taking the 12 millimeter bolts and conical tooth washers that are provided with our installation kit and threading them directly in there.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2008 Scion XB

Today we are going to install part number 12490 from Curt. And we are going to install this hitch on a 2008 Scion XB. First we will show you how this hitch installs on the vehicle. It is going to install on these three holes that are existing in the frame right now, and they are threaded. On some older vehicles, you may have to clean those out with a wire brush and some high lubricant - or, in worst-case scenario, a thread tap. Also what we are going to have to do is take down our exhaust. Spray down this hanger here with some lubricant and then slide it off. And you can tell we have already did spray a little bit of that. That will lower the muffler out of our way so we can get our work done. And then on the drivers side, this tie-down bracket will have to come off and stay off. And the hitch will go back into its place. What you want to do next is go ahead and check the holes. Run a a bolt in there. Make sure they thread in there okay. Like I said, if it is dirty, you may have to take a few steps and clean them out. And once you get everything started and, you know, make sure it looks good and clean, then you can go ahead and install your hitch at this point.





Scion xB Trailer Hitch Questions and Answers


  • Compatibility of Hitch from 2009 Scion xB with 2005 xB
  • The Curt Class I hitch you've looked at, part # C11487 is a fit for your 2005 xB. Since the 2005 xB and the 2009 model are from two different generations, the hitch from the 2009 will not fit your 2005 model.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Scion xB
  • There are only Class I and II hitches with 1-1/4 inch receivers available for your 2013 Scion xB. Since there is an option I always recommend the higher capacity hitch, in this case Class II hitch # C12490. If you plan on doing any towing please consult the vehicle owners manual for the vehicle gross trailer weight and tongue weight capacities. The hitch is rated for 3,500 pounds gross trailer weight and 350 pounds tongue weight. Whichever is lower, the vehicle or the hitch, is the figure...

  • Fit of Curt Class I Trailer Hitch # C11487 and Swagman Trailhead # S63360 Bike Rack on 2005 Scion xB
  • The Curt Class I hitch you referenced, part # C11487 is indeed a fit for your 2005 Scion xB. The Swagman Trailhead two bike model, part # S63360 would indeed be compatible with the hitch once it's installed on the vehicle. The Trailhead is my most-recommended bike rack, as it provides numerous features like padded anti-sway cradles and sturdy rubber straps that hold the bike to the rack, all at a great price. The rack includes an anti rattle hitch pin, but I would recommend the optional...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2008 Scion Release Series xB
  • Yes, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C12490 that you referenced is confirmed to all model 2008 Scion xBs so it will work on your Release Series 2008 xB. For a compatible bike rack the Swagman Trailhead Bike Rack part # S63360 would be an excellent choice. This rack has the great features of a more expensive rack like tilting mast, anti-sway cradles and anti-rattle hitch pin at a fraction of the cost. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Scion XB
  • We carry a hitch that is confirmed to fit your 2014 Scion xB, but the Hidden Hitch part # 60898 that you referenced would not work for you. You would want the Curt Trailer Hitch # C12490. This hitch is confirmed to fit your vehicle and should work very well for you. I attached an install video for you to check out also. If you plan on carrying any hitch mounted accessories like bike racks or cargo carriers you might also be interested in a Curt Stabilizer Strap part # 18050. Check...

  • How to Determine Gross Trailer Weight and Tongue Weight Towing with a 2009 Scion xB
  • The first thing you are going to want to do is consult the owners manual for your 2009 Scion xB to determine its capacities. They are likely not the same as the hitch. Whichever is lower, the hitch or the vehicle, is the rating you need to go by. To determine the gross trailer weight you will need to look at the sticker or plate on the trailer tongue. It should list a dry weight and a gross trailer weight. The gross trailer weight is the most that trailer can weigh including itself and...

  • Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for a 2006 xB
  • The Curt Hitch # C114872 that you referenced would be an excellent choice for a hitch for your 2006 Scion xB. This hitch has more than enough capacity for your 800 lb tent trailer and comes with a 2 inch ball as well. I attached installation instructions for this hitch for you to check out also. For a 4-way wiring kit that is confirmed to fit your vehicle and is plug and play I would recommend the # 118414. I attached installation instructions for this product as well.

  • Options for Carrying 4 Bikes With a 2011 Scion xB Release Series
  • I have a solution for you that will allow you to transport 4 bikes with your 2011 Scion xB Release Edition, but like you said, there are no hitches available that we carry that will work on the Release models. What you will first need is a Thule Raceway 3 Bike Trunk Mounted Carrier # TH9002PRO. This will carry three of your bikes. I attached installation instructions and a review video for this product also. If you plan on carrying womens or alternative framed bikes you will want...

  • Can a 2006 Scion xB with a Curt Hitch Tow a Sailboat and Trailer that Weigh 400 lbs
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch # 11487 that you referenced has towing capacities of 2,000 gross trailer weight and 200 lbs tongue weight. If your sailboat and trailer only weighs 400 lbs and you can lift the tongue of the trailer with one hand this hitch should be more than adequate for your 2006 Scion xB. I attached installation instructions for this product for you to check out. It would still be a good idea to check the tongue weight of your trailer when its loaded just to be sure. I linked...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2011 Scion xB
  • As long as your 2011 Scion xB is not a Release model, you can use the Curt trailer hitch # 12490. This is a Class II trailer hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver. The bike rack you choose will need to fit in the 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. I have included a link to the installation instructions and a link to a video showing a typical installation of the trailer hitch for you. While there are some bike racks that fit on a ball mount, most bike racks actually fit in the receiver opening....

  • Does the Muffler Have to be Removed to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2005 Scion xB
  • According to the installation instructions for CURT Trailer Hitch, # 11487, you will not need to remove the muffler in order to install the hitch on your 2005 Scion xB. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. The hitch comes with a ball mount, hitch pin, and clip. If you plan to do some towing you will need a ball, # 19256 (1-7/8 inch diameter) or # 19258 (2 inch diameter). For trailer wiring, use T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, # 118414. I have included...

  • Curt T-1 Connector Part # 56062 as Least Costly Option for Trailer Connector on 2009 Scion xB
  • Your 2009 xB requires a powered system, which means that the tail light converter gains its signals from the vehicle tail light circuits, but receives power for the trailer lamps directly from the vehicle battery. The tail light circuits on that vehicle are not rated to handle the additional load of the trailer lights. The T-1 connector part # 56062 is your most economical option.

  • Will a Trailer Hitch for a 2005 Scion xB fit a 2008 Scion xB
  • The hitches that are built to fit a 2005 Scion xB will not fit a 2008 Scion xB. The 2007 xB brought a new body that included some frame changes which is why the hitches for the 2004-2006 models will not fit the newer models. For your 2008 Scion xB you can use one of three hitches: Curt part # 12490, Draw-Tite part # 24815, or Hidden Hitch part # 60899. I have added links to these hitches below as well as to a video of the Curt hitch being installed on a 2008 xB and the instructions for...

  • Which Hitch Ball Do I Need for a 2009 Scion xB

  • Tongue Weight of Draw-Tite 24815 for 2008 Scion xB
  • Tongue weight is roughly 10% of hitch capacity. The capacity of this Draw-Tite Class I is 2,000 lbs, making the tongue weight 200 lbs. We have a hitch with a higher capacity for your vehicle. The Curt Class II receiver hitch (part 12490) has 3,500-lb capacity, giving it a 350-lb tongue weight. Since the Scion sits very low to the ground, I would highly recommend a cargo carrier with a rise. You might try the 20x48 Cargo Carrier by Tow Ready (part 63155), which has a 3 inch rise. This...

  • Does Curt Hitch Part # 11487 Sit Level Underneath the Car
  • When properly installed on a 2004-2007 Scion xB, the receiver opening sits level and does not angle down. I have included a link to a video install on a 2008 xB so you can see how the install works and how the hitch sits.
