Great product, would by again. However, when I do have a heavy load in the trunk the end of the hitch connection does scrap the ground on a store driveway entrance/exit. I would still recommend this hitch for the 2018+ Camry. 581624

I installed this recently. It went fairly well probably because I’ve done four other E trailer hitches similar. There was no install video for this particular model of Camry 2018 SE. but with that said it looks decent hides pretty well. 628158

2018 Toyota Camry

Installed this hitch on a 2018 Toyota Camry with 4 cylinder engine. It is a good solid heavy hitch. On the passenger side you have to mark for a hole that needs to be drilled for the 1/2" carriage bolt, but where you drill is a double thickness and the bolt supplied is too short. I had to purchase another bolt at the hardware store. The instructions don't say you have to drill this hole for this model Camry with the 4 cylinder engine. Took about 3 - 4 hours for me to install, including one trip for a step drill and another trip for the longer bolt. 600034

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid for Bike Rack
  • For your 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid, the Curt # C12176 hitch is a confirmed fit and my recommendation. It is a strong 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver that has a 350 lb tongue weight rating but will still require stability strap # 18050. All non-trailer loads like bike racks and cargo carriers require this. Failure to properly support these loads will void your hitch warranty from Curt. The Draw-Tite # 36643 is not a fit for your hybrid model according to the manufacturer so at this time the...

  • Which Trailer Hitch is Most Hidden on a 2018 Toyota Camry
  • For your 2018 Toyota Camry, it appears that the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C12176 will be the least visible which you can also see for yourself from the attached photo. Unfortunately, we have not yet installed the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C12176 or the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 36643 so I do not have any ground clearance measurements for you. These measurements are also going to vary by vehicle due to different tire sizes and cargo which is why the manufacturer...

  • 2018 Toyota Camry with Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Ground Clearance
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Class II # C12176 is a confirmed fit for your 2018 Toyota Camry. We haven't had the chance to install this hitch yet for photos or a video, but I've attached a photo of this hitch on a 2018 Toyota Camry to assist. We also haven't had the chance to measure ground clearance due to this, but based on the photo and the 16-19 inch wheels available on the 2018 Camry, it appears you will have 12 inches of ground clearance or more. It is less visual than...

  • Will Installing A Hitch On The Toyota Camry SE Affect Lower Body Molding
  • We currently have two trailer hitch receiver options for your 2018 Toyota Camry SE which are the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C12176 and the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 36643. Both of them install in a similar way and the difficulty is about the same. When installing the # 36643 on your 2018 Toyota Camry, you need to trim the underbody appearance panel to a 9" x 7" area. Also the heat shield must have a 10" by 12" area trimmed on it. When installing # C12176 you...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid
  • For a trailer hitch that is a confirmed fit for a 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid you'd want the Draw Tite part # 36643 or the Curt hitch part # C12176 that you referenced as both are a fit.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2019 Toyota Camry
  • There was a big enough change to the Toyota Camry in 2018 that the hitch manufacturers had to come up with a new fit. So the hitch from your 2015 Camry would not transfer to the 2019 and you'd need a new hitch. For that the Draw Tite hitch part # 36643 is a confirmed fit and would work well. I really like this hitch over the others because it does not require a stabilizer strap when carrying a bike rack like the similar Curt hitch # C12176 does. It also shows a shorter install time length too.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid
  • The Curt Class II hitch part # C12176 is a confirmed fit for the 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid models like what you have. We checked with Curt to verify this as a fit. You'll want to check your owners manual for any towing related capacities/restrictions. For trailer wiring you'd want the Tekonsha kit part # 118763 because it installs without requiring any hardwiring to your vehicle wiring and because it has our most reliable converter box. For a ball mount you'd want the part # C45521 and...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2018 Toyota Camry XSE 2.5L
  • Curt trailer hitch # C12176 is a fit for the 2018 Toyota Camry XSE but we do not have a picture showing it installed on that specific model. I have included a picture on an SE model from the instructions. I have also linked those instructions for you. The installation is not all that difficult it just takes some time to complete all the steps. If you plan on towing then the recommended ball mount is # C45521. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # A-80. For a 2 inch ball use # A-82. And for...

  • Is the Draw-Tite or Curt Trailer Hitch More Rust Resistant
  • The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 36643 and the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C12176 which are both a fit for your 2019 Toyota Camry come with what is referred to as a powder coat finish. A powder coat finish is similar to paint in look but is much more weather resistant. I do not have any quantitative data to suggest one is more rust resistant than the other but I can say that Curt uses a more sophisticated powder coating process called aquence technology. This process entails...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Toyota Camry for Carrying Bike Rack
  • The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2018 Camry is the Draw Tite part # 36643 because unlike the Curt hitch part # C12176 that also fits your vehicle it does not require a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack. The picture I attached shows the hitch installed on a 2018 Camry just like yours with a Thule T2 bike rack # TH9035XTS installed in the hitch.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver for a Bike Rack on a 2018 Toyota Camry Hyrbrid
  • The most economical trailer hitch receiver we carry for the 2018 Toyota Camry is the Draw-Tite, part # 36643. It is confirmed to fit your hybrid model. All of the hardware is included so you won't need anything extra and it's a Class II hitch so your Swagman rack will fit. I prefer the Draw-Tite over the Curt hitch, part # C12176, because the Curt requires a stabilization strap, part # 18050, per their warranty.

  • Hitch and Cargo Carrier for 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid
  • We do have a hitch to fit your 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid, the 1-1/4-inch Curt Class II hitch # C12176. And you're right that the Draw-Tite hitch # 36643 does not fit the hybrid. Curt hitch # C12176 installs without drilling using the included hardware pack. The instructions are linked for reference along with a helpful article with tips for an easier install. For a wiring harness I recommend kit # 118763 for its simple plug-in installation and because Tekonsha products are proven to...

Both of them will install in a similar way and the difficulty will be about the same.
