Rugged, Matte Black Finish

The sturdy steel construction is protected with a matte black finish for added durability. This unique powder coating gives etrailer hitches a carbide-like appearance and a rugged look that sets them apart from traditional glossy hitches. In addition to being rust and corrosion resistant, the tough matte coating hides dirt, scuffs, and dings better than a glossy finish.

Perfect fit for my 2018 VW Tiguan. Matte black, made in USA etrailer hitch is the way to go. Matches the vehicle nicely. Videos on the website were very helpful. Easy install.

Product looks and feels like good quality. Installation was a breeze with the provided instructions. Fitment is excellent. Tiguan isn’t rated for heavy loads but this hitch will certainly hold for anything the Tiguan is able to pull. Communication from etrailer.com was the best!

Easy to install in 20min because prior to that I had to cut the fairing with a cutting tool. Once installed I am thinking to buy the rubber cap to protect it and have a better looking when nothing is attached. Great product, Thanks! [Two Thumbs Up]

Simple, cheap, strong, works. I love it when I find products like this: it fit perfectly, the bolts are grade 8 hardened, and the hitch installed very easily. A perfect addition to my VW Tiguan. Thank goodness for great engineering.

This is the 2nd hitch I've bought from eTrailer. The instructions were simple, and the online videos show exactly how installation goes. You can't beat the prices either. I highly recommend eTrailer to anyone looking for towing solutions.

I purchased a hitch for my Volkswagen Tiguan, after watching the video on installation, I mounted the hitch last night, went as smooth as glass. Etrailer gave great instructions, if you have any slight mechanical ability, you too can install with no problem. I am going to tackle the wiring tonight, only thing, that will be a brother is routing the wire from the rear to the front of the car underneath. But I don't expect any problems with it either.

Super easy to install. Had this installed in 10 minutes or less. I would suggest to get a good wire brush to clean out the threads on the vehicle. A little rust can make your job much harder. Pre prep goes a long way!

I was impressed with what a relatively simple job putting on my hitch was for my ‘12 Tiguan. All parts in the kit were intact, and instructions were clear. How to get the wire up to the battery could’ve been clearer.

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Trailer Hitch

  • Install Video for etrailer.com Hitch e98906 On a 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan
    Yes, I have attached for you an install video of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13133 which you can use to install the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98906. These two hitches are the same save for finish (matte vs gloss) so the install video will apply to both options.

  • Recommended Hitch and Bike Rack for 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan
    Yes. The etrailer # e98906 will be plenty strong to allow you to carry a bike rack and bikes with a weight of up to 350-lbs total on your 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan. This hitch has a 2" receiver that will allow you to carry a wide variety of hitch mounted accessories, in addition to a bike rack. If you're looking for a 3 bike rack to use on your new hitch, I recommend using the RockyMounts Westslope # RKY10223 because the platform makes it easy to get bikes on and off, plus this rack tilts...

  • Trailer Hitch and Other Parts to Tow a Trailer with a 2018 VW Tiguan Limited
    We have several trailer hitches that fit your 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Limited that you can use to tow your boat. I recommend the etrailer hitch # e98906. All the hitches we carry for your VW install the same but I like the etrailer hitch the best because it's one of the 2 inch hitches which have a higher capacity and versatility and it also has a matte finish as opposed to the others that are glossy. The gloss finish shows scratches a lot more than that matte does so it'll stay looking...

  • Parts Needed To Add 4-way Connector To 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan
    Thanks for the picture! Even though your 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan has the US Car connector for a 7-way connector you will need to use a circuit tester like # 40376 to test the pins as Volkswagen did not always include the module to power the connector. If your connector has power you will need the Hopkins Endurance Multi-Tow 7-Way RV and 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector - Vehicle End # HM40950 which will give you both a 7-way and 4-way connector and mounting bracket # PK12711U.

  • Is Thread Locker Recommended Installation Hardware of etrailer Brand e98906 Trailer Hitch
    If the # e98906 hitch installation hardware is torqued according to the instructions, it won't be necessary to use # LT37420 thread locker. You can certainly do so if you wish, however please note that the torque specs mentioned in the installation instructions are for dry torque. If thread locker is used you'd use different torque specs (wet torque) which can be looked up online dependent on the size and class of the fastener.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2003 VW Passat
    The etrailer.com brand # e98906 Class III trailer hitch is a vehicle specific item designed for a 2009 - 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan and a 2017 - 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Limited, so it wouldn't work on your 2003 Passat. For your vehicle, the correct hitch will depend on the exact vehicle model. -For a sedan or wagon that's not a 4Motion model, use # C11054 -If it's a sedan or wagon that IS a 4Motion model, but not with the 4.0L W8 engine, use # C11076 If you'll be towing a light-duty...

  • Trailer Hitch Options for a 2003 Kia Sedona
    There are a few trailer hitch options for the 2003 Kia Sedona, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13340 and the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75131 which both have the larger receiver tube opening. I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver because there is no drilling required as there would be for the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver. Unfortunately, there are not any more cost effective options available. Please note, trailer hitches are specific...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Compatible with 2019 VW Tiguan SE
    The etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Matte Black Finish - Class III - 2" # e98906 is not compatible with the 2019 VW Tiguan. I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13381 because it is a confirmed fit and also has a really nice powdercoat finish that will resist rust and corrosion.

  • Difference Between Curt and etrailer Trailer Hitch Receivers for 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan
    There is only one difference between the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13133 and etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98906 that fit your 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan, which is the finish. The Curt trailer hitch has a glossy black finish while the etrailer hitch has a matte black finish; other than that everything is equal, such as their 3,500 lb towing/350 lb tongue weight capacities, as well as the installation. The two hitches have a hidden look, which means only the receiver is showing...

  • Towing a 425 lb. Track Bike with my 2012 Volkwagon Tiguan
    For your 2012 Volkswagon Tiguan the highest capacities come with the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98906 or the DrawTite you looked at part # 75658. The reason there is not one with a cross tube is that the design of the vehicle does not allow it. They generally design these hitches to be right at the vehicles capacity or just over that. I recommend checking your owner's manual but even if it is the 350 lbs. these hitches offer it will not be enough for your bike let alone the...
