2013 Volkswagen Eos

I purchsed the following for my Volkeswagon EOS 2013. Had some reservations about fitting on a car like this. Would of loved to of used the Thule Helium Aero or something similar but not sure if they would of fit due to hanging lower. I decided to go with the following: 11090 Class I Hitch Vw Eos S63360 Swagman Trailhead 2 Bike Rack for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting So far I am very happy with the fit. As you can see from the pictures there is great clearance to the ground as well as between the car and bike.

2015 Volkswagen Eos

Use my hitch almost every week in the summer time. Bike Rack Light trailer to go dump yard waste

This rack is so easy to use. It sits on the back of my Volkswagon EOS. My car mechanic was so impressed with how easy it was to install he called me later to get the name of the rack for one of his other clients. Customer Service from etailer was great as well as I maneuvered through choosing and installing the correct product.

2014 Volkswagen Eos

Very happy with Hitch and bike rack. Installation was as advertised. Bolts arrived damaged due to harsh handling in shipment, but they were easily replaced from hardware store. Otherwise great product! Installed on 2014 VW Eos. It sits about 6 inches under car so it is hardly noticeable. Husband installed the rack in about 1 hour.

- C11090

Easier to install than I expected. Great instructions. On this installation you have to use something called a fishline. I was worried because I learned about that after I placed my order and I did not order this particular tool. I tried to think of ways I could get the job done anyway without the tool. You can't imagine how happy I was when the hitch arrived with EVERYTHING I needed including the fishline, instructions and parts. is fantastic and I would recommend them to anyone based on my experience

- C11090

The hitch and rack are really solid, sturdy, and easy to use - once you get the rack on the car. Getting it there isn't easy, as it's heavy and awkward, so getting the connector pipe into the hitch and then getting it locked in is a challenge for me. If you're young, strong, and a guy, maybe it's easier.

- C11090

Product was easy to install with the instructions and hardware that were included. Bike rack fits perfectly and is being used.

- C11090

Third hitch and bike rack I've ordered. The price is great and the free standard delivery came in 2 days! The last 2 (Jeep & Pontiac) installed perfectly so not expecting any problems with this one (VW). Great company to deal with.

Ask the Experts about this CURT Trailer Hitch

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Fitment For a 2015 Volkswagen Eos
    Yes, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11090 will fit all models of the 2015 Volkswagen Eos. It will require modification to the heat shield on your Eos to install the receiver. The receiver is rated for 100lbs of tongue weight and 1,000lbs of towing. Be sure to verify your vehicle capabilities with a VW dealer and do not exceed the lower of the 2 numbers. The Tekonsha ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness # 119250KIT will allow you to add a 4-way trailer connection for operating...

  • Is There a 2" Trailer Hitch for a 2010 Volkswagen Eos
    The 2010 Volkswagen Eos is a rather small vehicle and trailer hitch manufacturers don't typically offer the larger hitch size options for these smaller vehicles. Therefore the only trailer hitch options available for an Eos are 1-1/4" for which I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11090. The 1-1/4" can then be expanded to a 2" using the Hitch Adapter 1-1/4" to 2"part # HTAD but keep in mind this will reduce your capacity by 50%.

  • What is the Ground Clearance with a CURT Trailer Hitch Installed on a 2012 Volkswagen Eos
    I spoke with my contact at CURT regarding trailer hitch # 11090. What you can do is measure from the bottom of the vehicle frame straight down 8-1/2 inches. This is where the bottom of the receiver will be when the hitch is installed. So if you measure from that point to the ground (on level ground) that will give you the ground clearance measurement. If you used a ball mount with a 5 inch rise and a ball that is 2 inches tall, add seven inches to get a general idea of where the top of...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Volkswagen EOS
    The Curt Hitch part # C11090 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your 2015 Volkswagen EOS so I would recommend it for you. For carrying a bike rack you will also need the stabilizer strap part # 18050. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack part # S64670. This rack has a ton of positive reviews from our customers who have tried it. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

  • Hitch Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Volkswagen Eos
    For the 2012 Volkswagen Eos you will use the Curt Hitch Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # C11090. This hitch is a Class I hitch so you will limited to only hauling 2 bikes maximum on a hitch bike rack. I am including a link to the installation instructions on the Curt hitch and a link to a video of the hitch being installed on a Volkswagen Eos. For a 2 bike hitch rack that will work on your Volkswagen Eos, I would recommend the Swagman XTC-2 Platform Bike Rack, part # S64670. This platform...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Setup for 2008 Volkswagen Eos for Heavier Bikes
    The best solution we have is going to be a 1-1/4 inch hitch like the Draw Tite part # 24824 with a new bike rack as there isn't a 2 inch hitch that fits your 2008 Volkswagen Eos and the use of a hitch adapter cuts the hitch capacity in half plus adds movement so that's not recommended. In general 2 inch hitches are only used on vehicles with higher towing capacities like trucks and SUVs. Sounds like your bikes might be heavier due to the weight you mentioned, so for a bike rack with a...

  • Fit of Swagaman Trailhead # S63360 Bike Rack on 2013 VW Eos Hardtop Convertible
    Since you already have a hitch, you can quickly determine if the Swagman Trailhead would be compatible with your VW Eos. You'll need to find the distance between the hitch pin hole in the receiver and the furthest rearward point of the back bumper. I've linked you to an FAQ article that shows exactly how to do this.. If this distance is less than 11 inches (which it certainly should be), the Swagman Trailhead # S63360 would be an outstanding choice for you. As far as tools for installation,...
