Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2012 Chevrolet Camaro

Today on this 2012 Chevrolet Camaro, were going to install a hitch from Draw-Tite, part number 24850. This will also apply to part number 60266 from Hidden Hitch. Ok, now this is what the hitch looks like when its installed on the car. Next, well give you some measurement to help you out in selecting some accessories such as a bike carrier or a cargo carrier. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground is going to be 10 inches and from the center of the hitch pinhole to the outside edge of the bumper is going to be 12 inches. Now, we'll go ahead and show you how the hitch is installed.

The first thing weve done is actually loosen up the bottom of the bumper cover. Its not stated in the instructions, but it makes it a little bit easier to get the hitch back up in there. At this point, we'll go ahead and start installing the hitch on to the car. Now, there are two 8 mm studs and well nuts that are located just behind your rear mufflers on the in-board side of the frame. Now, we'll cut out on the hitch that goes over the nut and hangs on the back, and then we put another flat washer and nut on the remaining threads to tighten the hitch down.

At this point, we can start installing the hitch on to the studs here behind the bumper. Well go ahead and install fasteners going towards the front, right behind the differential. And now you have three bolts here to choose from. You want to make sure that the bolt is not too long or bottoms up against the mouth for differential. While we're test fitting, we found out in this particular case, two washers and count of two washers, so we'll put that into place and then we use washers on the inside to take up the gap and we end up using three.

Now, threads are coming through, so well go ahead and take our locking flange nut and install on the other side. Ok, as long as we have the threads come up the back side of the nut, we got our bolt pushed in all the way and its not touching the mount here so were good to go. Alright, with all our hardware installed, we can go ahead and start tightening it down. Ok, with all our hardware tightened down, well go ahead and torque them down as specified in the instruction. Ok, at this point, with the hitch installed, we can go ahead and reattach the fasteners to the bumper fascia that we loosened up earlier.

And with that, were finished with our install. And there you have it for part number 24850 from Draw-Tite on our 2012 Chevrolet Camaro.

Got everything installed over the weekend. Install was straightforward, I had done one previously on my Chrysler 300 before I got my Camaro. Having the wiring kit makes all the difference in the world on these. No shots of it in use yet, haven't got that far, but I did get pics of the car after installation. No problems at all and everything was completed successfully. Appreciate everything that you all did to get it out to me quickly and correctly. 144681

Ask the Experts about this Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch
Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe
  • There are better options available for carrying bikes on your 2011 Camaro. Trunk mount bike racks have been around for a while and are a good, inexpensive option to carry bikes, but like you, many people are weary of using a trunk mount rack because the weight of the bike rack and the bikes is sitting on the trunk and bumper. Bike rack manufacturers test these bike racks and as long as the weight capacity of the bike rack is not exceeded and the bike rack is installed properly, you should...

  • Can the Hidden Hitch # 60266 on a 2012 Chevy Camaro Tow a Motorcycle Trailer
  • That really depends on how heavy your trailer and motorcycle are. Most likely yes, but this hitch has a 2,000 gross trailer weight rating and a 200 lb tongue weight rating. So as long as your motorcycle and trailer are under those capacities and the towing capacities listed in the owners manual you would be good to go. When determining the towing capacity of a setup you should always go with the lowest rated component as your overall capacity. So if your vehicle is rated lower than...

  • Comparing Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitches for a 2010 Chevy Camaro
  • Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch are sister companies so the hitches as far as specs and installation are identical. The Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 60266 costs more because it comes with a ball mount, hitch pin, and clip. If you are not going to do any towing then go with the Draw-Tite hitch you referenced # 24850. For a bike rack I recommend the Swagman Titan, # S63400. This bike rack is Class I trailer hitch compatible. It has anti-sway cradles, a cable lock, and a rise in the shank for...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2012 Camaro SS Transformers Edition
  • I spoke with my contacts at Draw-Tite, Hidden hitch, and Curt. They all indicated that the available hitches for the 2012 Chevy Camaro should fit the Transformers edition as long as it does not have a dealer-added ground effects package. On any of the hitches, only the receiver will be visible beneath the car. The cross tubing and mounting brackets will not be visible. I have included a link to the installation instructions for the Hidden Hitch that you have referenced. Installation...

  • How Hidden From View Is The Hidden Hitch # 60266 On A 2010 Chevrolet Camaro
  • Hidden Hitch has designed the Hidden Hitch # 60266, so that most of the hitch is hidden from view. The cross tube of the hitch will be hidden behind the bumper fascia, but you will still be able to see the portion of the tubing that attaches to the receiver. Please note that part # 60266 will not fit the Camaro convertible or Camaro models with optional dealer installed ground effects. I have linked instructions of the Hidden Hitch # 60266, that shows a drawing of how the hitch will...

  • Does the Rear Bumper of 2011 Chevy Camaro have to Come off to Install Hidden Hitch part # 60266
  • To install the Hidden Hitch part # 60266 that you referenced you would not need to remove the bumper or supply longer bolts than what are included with the install hardware on a 2011 Chevy Camaro like yours that's not a convertible or has ground effects. Check out the install video and instructions I attached to see for yourself. I would consider ordering the hitch from us and just installing it yourself. It wouldn't be too hard and you wouldn't have to worry about a shady garage trying...

  • What Ball Mount is Needed for a 2011 Chevy Camaro For Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch 60266
  • The Hidden Hitch trailer hitch, # 60266, actually comes with the correct ball mount, hitch pin and clip. On a Class I hitch, like this one, or Class II hitch, you must use the ball mount recommended by the hitch manufacturer or it will void the hitch warranty. The ball mount measures 10 inches from the hitch pin hole to the ball hole but it is sufficient to clear the rear bumper because of the angle that the rear fascia is at. It is12 inches higher on the vehicle but not down where...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendations for a 2012 Chevrolet Camaro
  • The correct wiring for your 2012 Chevrolet Camaro is either the Tow Ready # 118556, or the Curt # C56253. Both of these are T-one style of trailer wiring harnesses that will install in-line behind your existing tail lights, and will provide a 4-way flat connection point for a trailer. I checked with our wiring manufacturer, Tow Ready and they have verified that the # 118486 trailer wiring will not work on the 2012 Camaro because the connectors were changed by the vehicle manufacturer. If...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2012 Chevy Camaro Convertible
  • The frame on the convertible models has some differences with regular hardtop models and some hitches will not fit. We do have a trailer hitch that you can use on your convertible 2012 Chevy Camaro as long as it does not have the ground effects package. You can use Curt trailer hitch # C11222. If you plan on doing some towing first consult the vehicle owners manual to make sure it is permissible to do so. The correct ball mount for this hitch and vehicle is # C45520. You will also need...
