Video Transcript for Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2014 Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen

Today on a 2014 Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen, were going to install part number 119179kit from Tow Ready. First thing we need to do is get access to the wire harness were going to work with. This will behind the panels right behind the tail lights. To start off we need to remove some interior components. Were already removed the spare tire cover and a spare tire itself. At this point we go ahead and remove the thresh hold.

There are two fasteners that are horizontal on the inside edge of the thresh hold. Take a flat screwdriver to unscrew them. Well go ahead and pull it towards the center of the vehicle just gently and then pull at the same time then the whole thresh hold will actually pop loose. Once we have that accomplished we need to remove the lid that coves the spare tire area as well. There will be four screws that we can remove. There are two additional fasteners on the other side of the cover; well have to remove these as well.

Once we have that out of the way we can go ahead and work on the perimeter that goes around it. This is a frame that the lid sits on top of. This frame is in two pieces and has a covering on top of it as well. The other coverings loose so we can find the fastener that holds it in place. There are two fasteners for each side. Theres a screw that goes horizontal towards the back seats.

Theres a plastic nut that holds the other half thats closer to the spare tire well. Well go ahead and remove the fasteners then we can go ahead and take them out. We can lift up on it and then pull towards the front to release it from the pin thats in back. This frame work has a left and right hand side. Once both sides are removed we can go ahead and work on the side panels to get access to our wiring. Well start by removing the tie down fastener at the top of a side panel.

Starting from the bottom, well feel around for fasteners and look underneath the edge you can see them and well just pry them loose with a trim panel tool. Where panel meets the roof panel we need to separate there as well. Then we can get our panel pulled free and we can do our work. Well have to do this on both sides of the car. Once our panels are free we can go ahead and start working on our modules. First off well go ahead and work on the drivers side. Now well disconnect the wire harness from the tail light. Theres a very small tab on each half of the connector where you push in and then pull the whole connector back it comes loose. Where our wire harness plugs into the back of the tail light is where were going to make our connections. We need to test which wire does what function. First off well go ahead and use the ground screw that comes with the kit and run it through the sheet metal behind the tail light. Well use that for our ground for our tester. Then well test the pins on the connector. Well start off looking for our running lights. When we test it we found out that gray with a black stripe is the running lights. Using the provided quick splice connector well go ahead and connect that wire to our brown wire. Next well go ahead and look for our left turn signal. In testing we found out its dark gray, white stripe. Connect the left turn wire to the yellow wire. Now we need to look for our brakes. With the brake petal pressed down well look for that circuit. That one looks like dark gray with a red stripe so well connect that wire to a red wire from our module. Now there are two wires for our module that are red, we want the smaller of the two. Now well also take the white wire with the ring terminal and we need to ground that to the body so well attach that to the inside sheet metal of the vehicle. Now we need to get a signal for our right hand side so well take a green wire and run it over to the right hand side. Once again well go ahead and test our wires. On this side theres a inaudible 00:04:19 ground that we can use for our tester. We found out that the dark gray with the green strip is a right turn signal. Then well go ahead and make our final connection with the quick splice connector. For our green wire well go ahead and use some loom clamps to help hold them in place. This will keep them hidden underneath the thresh hold. The part number well be using will be a0250. The screws were using are part number sa1131822. Now well go ahead and work with our big red wire from the module. Thats going to connect up to our black wire and supply the kit. This will need to be ran up to the battery so well take the yellow butt connector, connect it to the black wire and then connect our red wire to it. Well also take our module and well connect it to the sheet metal right next to where we installed our ground. Well go ahead and leave that alone for now. With our black wire connected we need to run it to the outside so in this case theres not an available grommet thats close by, well go ahead and drill a hole through the sheet metal in front of the spare tire area. Were drilling a small pilot hole first, then well follow up with a larger hole that will match the rubber bushing that were using. Once we have it installed well go ahead and take our wire and run it through. I wont take up all our slack, well go ahead and leave some on the inside route it on the inside so we can hide it underneath the carpeting and panels later on. Well use some sealant around the grommet on the inside. When everything secure on the inside of the car well go ahead and run a wire underneath the car up to the front towards the battery. This case were going to go over the exhaust heat shield then well go and follow the brake line, follow that up all the way up to the engine compartment. Then well go ahead and run our wire from the bottom towards the top. Now to do this we can use a stiff piece of wire or in this case were using a piece of air line tubing that we can work our way up from the bottom towards the top. When we pull our wire up we want to make sure we stay away from anything that moves like suspension or steering components, come up by the fire wall and then well work our way around the battery compartment. Well go ahead and cut out wire to length then well add our fuse holder. Well cut the fuse holder in half, one end will get a ring terminal and the other end will get a butt connector that will connect to the black wire. Once our wire is connected well go ahead and connect to the positive terminal on the battery. Now a lot of times the threads dont allow you to inaudible 00:07:02 that all the off. In this case were actually going to split a ring terminal a little bit, run it around the stud and then tighten the nut back down. Then put our lid back on to the case. We can go ahead and zip tie our wires as needed to make sure theyre secure in the engine compartment then we can go ahead and install a fuse into the fuse holder. As we reinstall our interior components well take our four pull wire and route it through the back side of the compartment on the drivers side. Following that we can go ahead and reinstall our interior components in reverse order of what we did before taking them out. Now we can go ahead and show how it works. All we need to do is pull out our wire harness and shut the hatch on it. We want to make sure that we stay away from the center so the latch won't damage the wire and also the seal around the door is thick enough where it wont hurt anything if you shut the door on it. At this point its a good idea to go ahead and check the wire harness. Well take a ground lead for our tester and connect it to the white wire. Then well test our brown wire for our running lights work. Well go ahead and test our yellow wire for our left turn circuit and our green wire will be a right turn signal. Now our brake signal should be a signal from the green and yellow wire. With that that will finish it for part number 119179kit on this 2014 Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen. .

Was having difficult time finding a shop to install trailer hitch wiring on my Land Rover. Professional install shops who would offer to install quoted very high prices. Watched installation video for 119179KIT for 2010 Land Rover online. Bought your KIT and I installed as per video in about two hours. Could do another install probably in half the time. KIT included everything I needed except about two more feet of 'green' wire to reach passenger side tail light assembly on the Land Rover. Completed installation and ran test on wiring system with everything checking OK! Had a great time doing the install and would highly recommend your products to others. Thank You! 664246

It does what you need. I'm about to purchase my third of these - so I must be happy with it. The first two were on my '94 F150. When towing a trailer that has more than just a single pair of stop-turn lights, you need a powered adapter to keep from "dimming out" the tail lights/signal lights on the truck. My first one failed after a few years (tail lights always on, even when the truck lights were off!) so I bought a replacement. It would be nice if they lasted the life of the vehicle, but that's just not the standard for aftermarket and towing electronics - presumably because we consumers are so cost-sensitive. Now I've sold that truck and bought a new Tacoma. After installing the "plug and play" adapter, I find the tail and clearance lights are bit dim (6 bulbs total on the trailer) and while the factory setup has enough power to power either turn signals, it can't do the emergency flashers. So it's time to buy another 119176. 3432

Appreciate your positivity although it seems you had some disappointments..

With that number of lights, depending on the bulbs, the 119190 might be a better solution. It will support a greater light load than will the 119176. It probably would have lasted longer on his older F-150 too.

Product arrived in a timely matter, appears to be of high quality and was relatively easy to install. The inclusion of a circuit tester was a welcome feature. If the products' longevity matches its' appearance, it is an excellent buy. 120841

Where do I start? About a year ago I purchased a trailer adapter for my 4Runner after recommendation from etrailer employee who helped me navigate the website. So I proceeded to install but then I noticed that turn signals and brake lights come on only intermittently. After thoroughly checking my work and all of the wiring on the trailer, even tried my buddy’s trailer only to show the same symptoms. I get on the phone w etrailer and describe the issues, to which their reply was maybe the adapter is defective and we will send you a new one. I agreed and went ahead to install second new adapter but there was still no changes. It was only a third time I spoke to yet another “specialist” at the etrailer who noticed that my truck needs a 6 wire harness adapter and that 6th wire goes directly to the battery. In conclusion my truck needed constant power from the battery for that adapter to work, because apparently there wasn’t enough juice for the 5 wire adapter to power brake and signal lights consistently. Ended up paying extra $60 for adapter with an extra wire and that fixed the issue, my turn signals and brake lights come on every time. After spending close to 20-30 hours tearing plastics on the truck, then installing back and forth 3 times diagnosing and testing, in the hindsight I wish i reached out to local shop or trailer store and probably saved me much headache. 646537

I bought the Draw-tite hitch and the Modulite wiring harness for my new 2013 KIA Soul and was overall very pleased with the service and the product ..... I'm glad I watched the installation videos when I ordered the items as I was unable to find them when I went back in to doublecheck a couple of details ..... the Modulite wiring harness did not come with any instructions at all ! And the hitch instructions didn't show the secret trick about lowering the muffler .... the videos were VERY helpful but I don't understand why I couldn't find them when I went back in ( admittedly, on a different computer ) to check .... But everything went together very well and is working perfectly ! E-trailer was very prompt, very competetively priced, and very helpful with their online videos ..... thanx, E-trailer ! 89335

Did your kia soul have led lighting? If so which brand did you buy and was it easy to run all the wires with go results. thanks jack

You can use the 119179KIT harness with both LED light and non-LED versions of the Soul. Since the 119179 harness has its own power feed, the LED lights would be protected. We have installed the kit on a 2013 Soul and shot a video of it that I have linked below. If you let me know what year Soul you are working with and whether or not yours is LED, I can check to see if there are other options.

I purchased a class 2 Draw-tite hitch, drawbar with 3 1/2 " rise, 1 7/8 ball, and the circuit protected modulite 4 pole harness kit for my 1991 Chrysler New Yorker. The shipping was incredibly fast. Everything fit well and easy install. I saved $200.00 installing it myself. Now I'll be able to tow my 14 ft aluminum fishing boat and catch me some nice trout. Thank's for the good products and fast shipping. Here's some pics. You can't even see the hitch unless the drawbar and ball are on. Lou 39159

I'm only sorry I didn't take photos of the installation of the trailer wiring. I have to say, it was the easiest most enjoyable install I may have ever done of this kind. I'm not the handiest when it comes to this type of thing, but coupled with the complete wiring and hardware setup, it really made all the difference. The video that accompanied my specific vehicle also made a world of difference, major high marks for this. The only thing that may have helped was a bit longer wire for the passenger side (green) wire, but that's probably not even worth mentioning though I did. I'm putting together a tow package for hauling a light motorcycle trailer, so I figured I'd try this myself and I'm glad I did, great instructions make all the difference! These guys include everything right down to the wire ties and it's all top quality heavy gauge wire. Thanks again and I'll be using you guys for sure in the near future. Graham 240723

Thanks for the follow-up. All is well with the wiring, its also strange synchronicity as I just bought a little trailer last week and for the first time in a year I used my new wiring harness again. Perfect, thanks again!

Product doesn’t work. Installed correctly right signal connection tested good in car but there was a short in the amplifier box which turned the left signal on with left or right signal activation. Horrible costumer service. They are charging me to return it. I am a repeat customer but will never buy from them again. 504391


Comments

To test the if the converter box is bad, you can use a tester and test the incoming function on the wires, and the make sure that same function is transmitted through the converter box. If it is not, then the converter box is bad.

Bought this kit for my 04 WRX because it does not have any trailer wiring harness. Install was a sinch, especially for anyone somewhat knowledgable with automotive experience. Just pulled back the trunk lining and tapped into my tailights. As for the big wire you have to run to the battery, i suggest you take the time and pull your interior trim out and run it inside the vehicle and throught the firewall, dont just ziptie it up under the car. Works exactly as its said to, already have made two trips with my trailer and all lights have been in perfect working order. Also happy with ETRAILER's shipping, arrived was sooner than expected! 61111

The harness and hitch have worked great. I see a lot of trailer hitches that rust very quickly. This one still looks very good. I just recently ordered a hitch for my Ford Ranger from etrailer as I was happy with what I had purchased before.

Both the dealer and U Haul said they couldn't do a wire package for a 2013 Infiniti EX37. This kit worked just fine. Could have used instructions for the lighting adapter, but watching the video a couple of times and taking notes for which color did what seems to have worked. Delivery was quick. Thanks for the tester, couldn't have done without it. (Use a leather glove on the hand holding the wire!) 126924

I WAS AMAZED AT THE SPEED OF DELIVERY. I HAVEN'T INSTALLED IT YET BECAUSE I AM ILL AND IT IS TOO COLD, BUT THE VIDEO MAKES IT SEEM EASY TO DO. I AM EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW WIRING SYSTEM THAT WILL ELIMINATE THE PROBLEMS THAT I HAVE HAD WITH EARLIER WIRING SYSTEMS FOR MY OLDER 2002 MERCURY. I WAS VERY PLEASED AT THE DELIVERY OF MY HITCH ALSO. IT CAME QUICKLY AND EVERYTHING WORKED OUT VERY WELL. INSTALLATION WAS EASY AND STRAIGHT FORWARD. I DID IT IN MY DRIVEWAY. I JACKED UP THE HITCH TO TOUCH THE FRAME AND MARKED IT OFF FOR DRILLING. I DID IT ALONE. WORKED GREAT. I DRILLED THE HOLES, THEN BOLTED ONE AT A TIME. I HAD A NEED TO CALL AND ASK QUESTIONS, AND FOUND IT EASY TO DO BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE. THEY HAD THE ANSWERS AND WERE VERY HELPFUL. THESE GUYS ARE THE BEST. 325203

I purchased this kit to install in my 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis. This wiring kit is just the ticket for getting your hitch up & running. You need a wire stripper/crimping tool, some black electrical tape, and definitely a creeper when you run the wire from the module to the battery. I would also recommend a set of trim removal pry bars as demonstrated in the eTrailer video. This kit installs easily, but take your time, especially when routing the wire to the battery. Make sure you protect the wire from the rough/sharp edges you WILL encounter! I wrapped electrical tape around the sharp edges and around the wire, should last a while. Also, use the included zip ties where necessary so it doesn't get hung up on something. To use the tester, ground it out (see pic) and come through the insulation at an angle instead of straight down (the lead will 'give' otherwise). I routed the battery wire through the rubber body plug, since there wasn't an easier way I could find. I will probably buy another plug and make a small cut for the wire to pass through later (a little silicone or rubber cement will seal it off). This kit might cost more than you might like to spend, but I highly recommend it for a proper and safe wiring job. 19791

The wiring harness you ordered isnt a vehicle specific item, so the instructions provided with it are very generalized. If you click the provided link, you can see an install video showing the harness being installed on a slightly newer Town Car. The procedure on your vehicle would be nearly identical.

It arrived with the rest of the order only packed in a zip lock bag. No instructions were included. I found the instructions on the website easily. The included splice connectors cut my three of he vehicles wires. I have used these before and know how to use them correctly. The green wire for the right turn was not long enough to reach that side of my vehicle. After butt splicing it still does not work. I will trouble shoot all the connections and if it stilll does not work, I hope to return for refund. 554299


Comments

This wiring harness part 119179KIT for I4 models without the factory towing package. If your 2015 Kia Sorento is a I4 without the factory towing package then this wiring harness will need to be hardwired. This kit is a universal wiring harness so it fits various different vehicles. The first thing you need to do is take the circuit tester you received with the kit and test your tail light functions. It looks as if the 2015 Kia Sorento has a 3 wire system. Starting on the drivers side, locate OEM wiring that will function for the running light circuit, turn signal circuit and brake circuit. The yellow wire will butt connect to the vehicles left turn wire, green wire to the vehicles right turn wire, brown to the vehicles tail light wire and red to the vehicles brake light circuit. The white wire needs to be grounded on a clean bare metal surface of the vehicles frame. The thicker gauge red wire will then need to be connected to the extra black wire in the kit to the 10 amp fuse included in the kit and then to the positive side of the battery. I have attached a help article about routing the power wire.

Replaced earlier trailer light module (17499-204). Left turn signal/stop light failed due to short circuit. The newer module has overload protection and brighter lights! Works fine on 2002 Toyota Camry. 520166

Quality product, great video instructions for my Chrysler Pacifica. Running the wires to the front without a lift is a bit tricky, but doable. 4 stars because they ship this product in the same box as my hitch which is not ideal. It means this kit bounced around all though shipping and had some damage to the packaging, no damage to the actual unit however. 484974

I can't get over the price and speed of service! It's cheaper than going to a auto store! Plus they give you everything you need in one shot. I admit I made a mistake on my order and a simple phone call they fixed it with no problem. The only thing I would say which probably was my fault is they had a plug and play electric kit for my highlander that should of been offered in page for kit. They got me on track! Wish I would of used them on my last hitch I bought, but now I know and will recommend to friends. Post pics later. 453407

  • Choosing Hitch Installation on 2014 VW Jetta Sportwagen TDI and 2015 Volkswagen Passat 2.0L TDI
  • In a light-duty towing application like yours, to be perfectly honest, if it were my money I would choose the lowest cost hitch for whichever car you choose to equip with a hitch. All have identical capacities. For the 2014 VW Jetta Sportwagen TDI we have two compatible hitches, the Draw-Tite 1-1/4-inch Class I Sportframe Trailer Hitch # 24866 which will install on the Jetta's frame, and the 2-inch EcoHitch # 306-X7284 which does install at the bumper mounts. Both are shown on the linked...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation for 2013 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen
  • Not every vehicle has a custom install wiring kit available unfortunately. Typically the vehicles that are more likely to tow will have plug and play install kits and the lighter duty vehicles that don't tow as often will need to use a hardwired option. I do have some good news though. We had the chance to install the Tekonsha Kit part # 119179KIT on a 2014 Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen and we shot an install video for it which you can use as a guide to walk you through it step by step.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid
  • I reached out to my contact at Draw-Tite, and you are correct that they just added that adapter. We are adding it to our site to give you the fit you are seeking for your 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. This will require purchase of the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76046 and also the kit # 76046SK. For your trailer wiring, I recommend the Upgraded Circuit Protected ModuLite with 4 Pole Harness and Hardwire Kit - Includes Tester # 119179KIT. This kit draws power directly...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2018 Dodge Ram 1500 Express 4x4
  • For your 2018 Ram 1500 Express, I recommend the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver w/ Cast Center # 41948. This is a Class V hitch receiver with a 2 inch receiver opening. It is rated for 1500 lbs tongue weight and 12,000 lbs towing and even more when used with weight distribution. I recommend using the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for 2" Trailer Hitches # 63201 to give you a lock and anti-rattle with any accessories or ball mounts. If you don't...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica with Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch 36798
  • Your assumption is correct. If the distance from the ground to the top of the receiver opening on trailer hitch # 36798 is 12 inches, and the distance from the ground to the bottom of a level trailer coupler is 17 inches, you would need a ball mount with a 5 inch rise. Ball mount # 36065 is a good option. It takes a ball with a 3/4 inch diameter shank. For a compatible 1-7/8 inch ball you can use # 19256. For a 2 inch ball use # 19258. For trailer wiring if your 2017 Chrysler Pacifica...

  • Will etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2006 Toyota Highlander Fit the Hybrid Model
  • Our fit guide splits up the hitches for your 2006 Toyota Highlander into two categories: those that are confirmed to fit the Hybrid model and those that aren't. The etrailer.com hitch, part # E98857, fits both the Hybrids and non-Hybrids so it shows up under both categories which can be kind of confusing sometimes. Rest assured, it does fit your Hybrid Highlander. If you're going to be towing with your Highlander you also need a wiring harness. Part # 118248 fits if you have the tow...

  • Hitch and Wiring Fits for 2004 Dodge Sprinter
  • Both of our primary hitch suppliers, Curt and Draw-Tite, show no vehicle listing for a M-B branded Sprinter for model year 2004. Only a Dodge Sprinter is listed, both 2500-series and 3500-series. You can confirm the correct hitch based on the van's wheelbase and drivetrain. If you click on the "Select Vehicle Style" drop-down menu tool at the top of the linked page you can select your Sprinter's configuration; you will then see the hitches just for that setup. For example, for a 118-inch...

  • Can the Curt Trailer Hitch Part # 13333 Be Used for a 3,500 Lb Boat on a 2018 Ram 1500 Express
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13333 is a confirmed fit for your 2018 Ram 1500 Express and will be more than capable of allowing you to pull your 3,500 lb boat as it has a 6,000 lb gross trailer weight (GTW) rating. You will not need to use a trailer hitch that attaches directly to the frame like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13374. I have attached an install video on the above hitch for you which as you can see, is very simple and straightforward. If your Ram did not...

  • Cannot Find Connector for Brake Controller on 2016 Dodge Ram 1500 Big Horn
  • The connector that you need to install a brake controller like the Prodigy P3 # 90195 using the Plug-In Adapter # 3024-P on your 2016 Ram 1500 should be under the driver side dash to the right side of the steering column as demonstrated in the attached installation video. Sometimes these connectors can be shoved way up under the dash. If you still cannot find it then you have a few options. The easiest would be to take your truck to a Dodge Ram dealer and see if they can locate it for...

  • Trailer Hitch Fit Recommendation for 2003 Lexus GX 470
  • If you had a 2010-2017 GX470 this would fit your vehicle, but if you have an older model of this vehicle you instead would need to go with a frame mounted hitch like the Curt part # 13445 which is a confirmed fit and would not require any bolt hole measuring to verify fit. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in 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...

  • How to Transport Dirt Bike with 2013 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI
  • I understand that you want to use a hitch-mount dirt bike carrier like # MT70101 or # UF48-979033 on your 2013 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI but the limiting factor is that the hitches made for your TDI, such as EcoHitch # 306-X7284, are rated for only 200-lbs tongue weight. The rated tongue weight (TW), which is downward force on the hitch, must be enough for the combined weight of the bike (225-lbs) and the carrier it is on, which is another 50-lbs for both # MT70101 and # UF48-979033....

  • Trailer Hitch, Wiring, and Brake Controller for 2019 Ram 1500 Classic and 5,000 Pound Trailer

This hitch is rated for 6,000 pounds gross trailer weight (10,000 when used with weight distribution) so it has more than enough capacity for your trailer. If your truck did not come with a factory trailer connector you can use # 119179KIT to add a 4-Way flat to the rear of the truck. And to add a 7-Way connector...

  • Do Weight Ratings for EcoHitch Match the Ratings for a 2012 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI
  • The 200 lb tongue weight (TW) and 2,000 lb gross towing weight (GTW) ratings for the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7284 apply only to the trailer hitch itself. Just like all other trailer hitch manufacturers, the EcoHitch is tested outside of the parameters of the tow vehicle itself so it is always important to look up the weight ratings and instructions for your vehicle prior to towing. From what I could find online it looks like Volkswagen doesn't approve towing a...

  • For a trailer hitch confirmed as a fit for your 2013 Volkswagen Sportwagen TDI we have the Draw Tite kit part # 24866 which would fit and work well. Then for wiring you'd need the # 119179KIT which is a universal kit confirmed as a fit. I attached an install video for this on a very similar 2014 Jetta SportWagen for you to check out as well. For a ball mount you'd then want the # 3593 and for hitch balls we have # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch ball.

It has a great price and more capacity than needed for the trailer you plan to tow. It can tow up to a 10,000 lb trailer. For trailer wiring you will need to start with a 4-way (if you do not have one). For that you would want the # 119179KIT. From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install a brake controller to activate the brakes...

  • For your 2005 Nissan Sentra, I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24750 over the Curt # C11263 for a few reasons. The first being that they are rated for exactly the same capacities, but the Draw-Tite option is a much easier install with no drilling required estimated at 40 minutes versus the 1:30 install time of the Curt which requires drilling. Also, for any non-trailer load like a bike rack or cargo carrier, Curt's warranty requires strap # 18050 for their warranty...
