Ask the Experts about this CURT Trailer Hitch

  • Curt Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver Height on a 2008 Volkswagen Passat Wagon
    The Curt Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver with Drawbar, part # 11096, is designed so that the receiver tube will sit right underneath the rear bumper of your vehicle with minimal clearance. I would measure how far the bumper of your 2008 Volkswagen Passat Wagon sits from the ground, and then subtract about 2-1/2 to 3 inches from that. The result will be close to how far the hitch will sit from the ground.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Fit for 2008 Volkswagen Passat Wagon
    I've spoken with my Curt representative who confirms that they have a different hitch model for the sedan # C11091 and wagon # C11096. The C11096 will fit your Passat wagon, unless it's a 4motion model. My Cequent Towing representative (manufacturer of Draw-Tite hitches) tells me that the # 24848 Draw-Tite will fit either the wagon or the sedan model. I wasn't able to get a good explanation as to why one company offers a different hitch for the sedan and wagon, and why Draw-Tite has...

  • Fit of Curt Class I Receiver # 11096 on 2007 VW Passat Wagon with 4Motion
    Unfortunately, none our hitch manufacturers offer anything compatible with Passat models that have the 4Motion option. Vehicles equipped with the 4motion system have a different rear suspension that prevents a hitch from being installed. If you were needing the hitch as an attachment point for a bike rack, there are trunk mounted options that can carry up to 3 bikes (see link). I can highly recommend the Thule OutWay, part # TH45JV for a 2 bike or # TH56BV for a 3 bike capacity. Rather...

  • Can the Trailer Hitch for a 2010 Volkswagen Passat Support 4 Bikes
    The issue with installing a four bike rack on a class I hitch has more to down with the leverage that the last two bikes have on the hitch rather than the total amount of weight. That said, you can psychical mount four bikes on a class I hitch but it is just not recommended to do so. If you were going to do so then you would want to install the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11096, not the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24848 on your 2010 Volkswagen Passat as the...

  • Recommended Ball Mount for 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander to Tow 2016 Scamp Trailer Level
    For the height off the ground we measure from the top inside of the receiver tube to the ground. Then for a ball mount it sounds like you have an 8 inch rise which isn't quite tall enough. We have a couple of taller fixed mount options in the Draw-Tite Ball Mount - 9-3/4" Rise # 80248 and the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 10-3/4" Rise # AMSC12 but that still won't get you to the exact height needed. The Convert-A-Ball option will get you close enough to be safe but the trailer...
