Product and service were both excellent. Install was a little cumbersome and definitely easier with two people, however that is just the nature of the task. Directions were clear and the product fit perfectly despite some initial personal doubts. etrailer representative even followed up after one year to ensure the product was still working well. This is my second purchase from this retailer and I would buy again if the needed arises. 704749

Great customer service!! My order arrived with parts missing ( due to shipping company damaging the box). I called and immediately got a customer service rep on the phone without any wait. They shipped out the parts the same day and followed up to make sure my order was correct. 588553

Great product! Install was not difficult after reading reviews. As mentioned by others, it has a bit of weight to it so either use jacks or get help. The Atlas holes needed widening, but I have a dremel tool on hand and that did the trick. Looks clean, like the look better than the SEL factor version actually. Box came a bit tore up but I blame the carrier and not etrailer. The product was not beat up thankfully. 557761

Great, quick service and support by etrailer. Items were received about a day earlier than originally expected. We have an Atlas 2.0L 4 cycle that doesn't come with a hitch and wanted some capacity for a light trailer or extra cargo. I liked the Curt hitch as it's made in USA and looks a little more concealed. It fits perfectly with the mounting locations and great fit around the bumper molding. No trimming and no rubbing, just a very slight gap. I did not use a dremmel to get the bolt heads into the sub-frame hole, just a rounded file to get some of the undercoating off was enough to get the bolts in. Fishwire was easy, slightly bend the tip to help poke it back out of the bolt location, and use the zig-zag bend to keep the spacer away from the bolt as I think it helps pull them through. I used a floor jack to hold up and position to the bolts, no extra help needed. Torqueing was a bit of a challenge, but that's my issue (here you might need someone to hold you down to get some leverage). 487371

One year later and I couldn’t be happier. My towing needs are a 5x8 trailer loads supporting house improvement projects. This receiver flawlessly met this need. Installation does require a fairly capable person to do it. If you are a “handyman”, then this is in your ability. Patience is another good thing to have. Although the installation isn’t the simplest thing, it is doable with basic tools and average skills. Give it a try. Even if you can’t, surely a friend of yours can. May take an hour tops. 607803

Great, easy to install once I realized the easiest way to install the bolts inside the “frame”. Instruction sheet could have included an additional picture with which holes get the bolts. First time installing my own trailer hitch. I did it with my 11 year old son in about 25-30 minutes. VW dealer wanted $1158 just for the partsm no installation. I paid about 20% of that and did it myself. Great quality as well. 516788

I ordered this trailer hitch for my 2018 VW Atlas and installation was exactly as per instruction + some of the online advice from earlier purchasers. The one thing I would add is that, in cases where the bolt head doesn't fit through the holes in the frame, it may be more advisable grinding the bolt head slightly smaller on two sides than drilling the frame to enlarge the hole in the frame. This way the protective layers on the frame applied in the factory are left unmolested. 558347

It is crazy that you have to buy the top of the line Atlas to get a factory installed hitch. If you want to add the VW hutch after purchase, it is $700 (about $350 for the hitch and $350 for the bumper plastic insert). So VW gets a grade of F-. Luckily the Curt hitch is WAY less expensive, has a higher towing capacity, and is easy to install. Instead of poking through the bumper like the factory hitch, it sits just below. This is actually better if your primary use is carrying bikes. If you are towing you can get a special ball that moves the ball location to the center of the bumper which is better for actual towing. This hitch is easy to install, but here are a few tips. 1) I had to use a Dremel tool to open the access holes a little more to fit in the bolts. No big deal and quick to do. 2) this hitch is HEAVY. If you are installing it yourself and don't have someone to help, use a floor jack. Balance the hitch on the 2" channel section and lift into place. Keep the wires used to fish the bolts through the frame attached and thread them through the holes in the hitch. Once you have the hitch in place and the bolts protruding through, remove the wire and carefully thread the nuts on to the bolts to prevent them from going back into the frame. Super easy, 20 minutes to install. Looks good. No bumper trimming needed. Also the hitch does not protrude below the rear exhaust manifold. so it doesn't reduce ground clearance at all. Highly recommend. 453496

Fit my 2018 VW Atlas perfect. No modification to the frame to fit bolts through. The bolts will fit, a little tricky/tight. I coated my hitch in undercoating due to rusting on my old hitch/car (picture). 470664

This is a great product that matched the sellers claims for quality and ease of installation. I am a young 83 year old that had more difficulty getting up and down from the garage floor that I did fishing the hardware in place! The invisible hitch, except for the receiver, is a real winner from Curt products. 613863

The only difficulty I encountered was getting the carriage bolts to go through the access holes. After several unsuccessful attempts (despite removing some of the protective underbody coating in one of the access holes as recommended in the instructions), I used a grinding center to remove less than 1 mm from the heads of the carriage bolts - worked like a charm. 552162

This hitch installed without issue. The instructions were clear and it looks great on the vehicle. It sits flush with the very bottom of the bumper (the very bottom) but it does not reduce the vehicle clearance. It would be very difficult to get the hitch installed with one person. Unless you have a hitch jack (like they use at Uhaul) you will need another adult to help you get it up into position. You do not need to modify the bumper at all to install the hitch. One note: . Make sure you have a tool that can tighten them that much. I would recommend this hitch for the 2018 Atlas. 522254

Easy install even for one person. Using a floor jack, install was relatively easy. Hitch fit well and instructions were practically self explanatory since it fit in only one set of holes already in the frame. I liked this version of the hitch since it did not require cutting into the bumper. I only use it for hitch accessories like a bike rack rather than towing. 722698

Excellent product at an excellent price! I had some difficulties putting it on myself because I didn’t have a lift. I took it to guy with a lift and he had it on in about 20 minutes. I’ve since used it a few times with my bike rack with zero issues. I would definitely buy another one. 621633

Overall the installation is very smooth. The wires they suplly to fish the bolts through the holes are great. The installation is very straight forward. The only issue I had was trying to fit the bolts through the opening in the frame. The braces fit through easily but the bolts did not fit through without some pounding. With a little trimming of the undercoating and a hammer, I was able to get the bolts in place. Once all the bolts were in place, the installation was a breeze. 550314

Very pleased with hitch for 2018 VW Atlas. Kit comes with fishing wires to get bolts and washer plates through frame. Once bolts and washer plates installed, lifting hitch into place needs to be careful so you don't push bolts back up inside. All went according to instructions and looks great on my vehicle. Very important to torque nuts to the proper rating for security and away you go. 475463

The hitch receiver looks great on the vehicle since most of it is concealed. I liked that no holes needed drilled. The hardest part was fishing the bolts through the frame rails to the holes. I definitely recommend having an additional person for assisting with installation. 449713

  • Comparing Curt 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver to Draw-Tite 2 Inch Receiver for 2018 VW Atlas
  • For your 2018 VW Atlas, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13366 will be about 1-1/2 inches recessed behind your bumper and will drop 8.44 inches from the mount to the bottom of the receiver tube according to my tech contact at Curt. The Draw-Tite # 76176 will have the receiver tube extend about 6-1/2 inches from the rear mounting hole and will drop 8.8 inches from the mount to the bottom of the receiver tube according to my tech contract at Draw-Tite.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Volkswagen Atlas
  • For a 2 inch hitch for your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas the Draw Tite hitch part # 76176 is a confirmed fit and would be a great choice for your 2 inch hitch bike rack. This fits right up under the rear bumper too so ground clearance won't be too affected. The picture I attached shows this hitch installed. Access hole to feed the install hardware into the frame of your vehicle will need to be enlarged though. That's the most in-depth portion of the hitch install. The install is pretty basic...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2018 Volkswagen Atlas SE for Bike Towing Use
  • For your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas SE the hitch I suggest for your bike transport application is the Draw-Tite 2-inch Class III model # 76176. This hitch offers a substantial 900-lb tongue weight rating, making it easily capable of handling even the highest-capacity and heaviest 2-inch hitch bike racks out there. If your use is towing a motorcycle trailer this hitch again has the capacity you need and then some. The Curt hitch you referenced, part # C13366, has identical weight ratings....

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2018 VW Atlas
  • For your 2018 VW Atlas, we have two trailer hitch receivers available. We have a Class II 1-1/4 inch option from Draw-Tite and a Curt Class III 2 Inch receiver. I always recommend a Class III receiver over a Class II because of all of the options for accessories like bike racks and cargo carriers in addition to ball mount options. Not to mention they are just a sturdier and stronger design. Although some people like the smaller hitch receiver opening for a less noticeable hitch. Here...

They might have components like a transmission cooler that's also needed to allow you to tow the higher amount of weight. Right now though we do have the Curt Class III hitch # C13366 as a fit for your Atlas that's overrated than what you currently have a capacity for. This actually has a 6,000 lb towing capacity.

  • Does Bumper have to be Trimmed to Install Curt Trailer Hitch C13366 on a 2018 Volkswagen Atlas
  • I checked the installation instructions, linked for reference, for hitch # C13366. There is no trimming mentioned to install the hitch on a 2018 Volkswagen Atlas! If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If the ball mount kit does not have the...

If the 10-1/2 inch measurement that you took of the hitch receiver on your Atlas is from the ground to the top of the inside of your 2 inch receiver, like the Curt # C13366, then you will need a ball mount that has at least a 5 inch rise as rise and drop measurements typically...

  • Parts Needed to Tow a Trailer with 2018 VW Atlas

This Class III hitch is confirmed to fit your 2018 VW Atlas and will use existing holes in its frame for a no-drill installation. It will provide you with a 2 inch receiver and it has a 6,000 towing weight capacity. You will also want to verify your vehicle's capacity by checking the owner's manual, as it is likely lower than this. You will simply need to follow whichever capacity is...

  • Why Can't Weight Distribution System be Used with Curt Trailer Hitch on 2018 VW Atlas
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13366 referenced in your question, which is confirmed to fit your 2018 VW Atlas, is not rated for use with a weight distribution system. You cannot safely use a weight distribution system with this hitch on your vehicle. The issue is that the spring bar tension that a system puts on the hitch and vehicle is simply too much for some hitches and vehicles to safely handle. This pressure can potentially lead to damage both on the trailer hitch and vehicle...

  • How To Carry Six Bikes On the Back Of a 2018 Volkswagen Atlas With Extra Cargo Space

The only bike rack we offer that can carry six bikes is the Yakima HangOver 6 Bike Rack part # Y02485 and you cannot use any sort of adapter with this nor would the hitch be able to handle all of this weight most likely. The best option you have would be to use the above on the rear of the vehicle with a trailer hitch like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver...

Should you decide to do more than carry a bike with your hitch, this hitch provides up to 900lbs of tongue weight capacity as well.

  • You are definitely right that the Draw-Tite # 76176 and Curt # C13366 Class III trailer hitches for your 2019 VW Atlas are extremely similar, however I do recommend the Draw-Tite model because unlike the Curt, it is rated for use with a weight distribution system.

  • The Curt Class III Receiver Hitch part # C13366 and Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Receiver Hitch part # 76176 are both excellent options for a 2019 Volkswagen Atlas. I recommend the Curt option because the bracing for the receiver tube is a bit less bulky which essentially just translates to a sleeker overall look once installed.

Then for trailer wiring the Tekonsha kit part # 118754 is the best option as it installs very easily and comes with a very reliable converter box which means it will be the most likely to resist damaging itself due to a trailer wiring short.
