  • How Much Can a 2002 Jeep Liberty Tow and What is Needed
  • According to the owner's manual for your 2002 Jeep Liberty, the maximum towing capacity is 2,000 lbs if you do not have the factory trailer tow package or 5,000 lbs if you do have the factory trailer tow package. If you do not know whether or not you have the factory trailer tow package you can call the dealer with your VIN and ask. In order to tow a trailer with your Jeep Liberty you will need a trailer hitch, trailer wiring harness, and ball mount/hitch ball. For a trailer hitch, I...

  • How to Use the TorkLift SuperTruss on a 2006 Dodge Ram 3500
  • In order to use the TorkLift SuperTruss Hitch Extension part # TLE1548 on your 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 you will need to remove the factory hitch and install the TorkLift SuperHitch Original Trailer Hitch Receiver part # TLD1101. There are no other options to use any of the TorkLift SuperTruss Hitch Extensions on your Dodge Ram 3500. The Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 41929 would most likely not work with the factory trailer hitch and even if it were to the receiver tube...

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control Recommendation for 2018 Chevy Traverse Towing Travel Trailer
  • The Pro Series weight distribution system part # PS49901 is going to be your best option since you are wanting something easier to use and lower in price. It comes with friction sway control too. It would work great with your trailer's weight to as it has a tongue weight rating of up to 550 lbs. I attached a review video for the system as well to show you how easy it is to use.

  • Trailer Hitch and Brake Controller Recommendation for 2013 Mazda 5
  • The towing capacities are typically a bit higher in every country other than the US. This is due mostly to the amount of lawsuits here in the US and the manufacturers wanting to do their best to avoid getting sued. I am not sure where you are from but this hitch is only guaranteed to fit the US versions of the Mazda 5 so you'll have to check with the owners manual like you mentioned as they are the final authority. This Draw Tite hitch part # 24874 has a trailer towing capacity of 2,000...

  • Hitch and Cargo Carrier Recommendation for 2019 Ford Fusion Hybrid
  • The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2019 Ford Fusion hybrid is the Draw Tite part # 24897 since you'll be carrying a wheelchair. The reason is that because unlike the Curt hitch that fits your vehicle this hitch does not require a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load. This hitch as a 200 lb tongue weight capacity so you'd need a carrier like the Surco part # 52017 which will fit this hitch, has more than enough capacity needed, and is lightweight enough that you'd still...

  • Trailer Hitch that Fits 1983 Mercedes 300TD Wagon
  • The trailer hitch part # C11805 does fit your 1983 Mercedes 300TD Wagon but due to it's lower weight capacity of 200 lbs it cannot be used with a motorcycle carrier. Only solution would be a lightweight trailer. Which for that you'd need trailer wiring part # 119179KIT and a ball mount like the part # C45572.

  • Installation of Trailer Hitch in 2006 Acura RSX
  • I am not quite sure what you mean by "security factor" but if you are worried about the hitch either coming off or being stolen that won't happen given you follow the installation properly. Installing the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch # 24719 on your 2006 Acura RSX securely will require you to not only attach it to your Acura's tow hook but also drill holes in your trunk pan, which you would then seal. So for anyone to actually take the hitch they would need to do an amount of work...

  • Trailer Hitch Availability for 2009 Mazda MX-5 Miata with Appearance Package
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt about the fitment of the Class I Receiver Hitch # C11028 on your 2009 Mazda MX-5 Miata with the Appearance Package and he said that although it does fit up to the frame, there is a significant amount of fascia trimming that needs to be done for you to have access to the hitch receiver. Normally these would be somewhere around 3" holes that would need to be cut but he said for this particular application the holes would need to be somewhere in the ballpark...

  • Difference Between Curt Trailer Hitches for 2019 Ford Escape
  • The difference between the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13186 and Curt Trailer Hitch # C12111 that fit your 2019 Ford Escape is the size of the receiver. I recommend Curt Hitch # C13186 for your '19 Escape because it has a 2 inch receiver which gives you many more options in regards to the type of accessories you can use. This hitch has a 350 lb tongue weight capacity and 3,500 lb towing capacity but unlike the hitch with the smaller 1-1/4 inch receiver, the # C13186 is rated for use with...

  • Difference Between Draw-Tite and Curt Trailer Hitch for 2017 Nissan Juke AWD
  • Aside from the manufacturers there is very little difference between the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 24867 and Curt Trailer Hitch # C11088 that fit your 2017 Nissan Juke. The biggest difference is that Curt recommends using Stabilizing Straps # 18050 for all accessories such as bike racks and cargo carriers. Due to that and Draw-Tite's strong reputation for making very high-quality hitches I recommend going with the Draw-Tite # 24867. This is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver...

  • Recommendation for Hidden Trailer Hitch on 2018 Toyota RAV4

I have attached a couple images of this hitch installed on the RAV4 so you can see exactly how it will look.

  • Availability of Trailer Hitches for 2016 Infiniti Q70 and Q50
  • The only trailer hitch available that is confirmed to fit the 2016 Infiniti Q70 is the Curt Class I # C11111. For the Q50 we have the Draw-Tite # 24931 or the Curt # C11407, both of which are also Class I hitches. Between those two options for the Q50 I do recommend the Curt because it's made right here in the USA. All of these trailer hitches will provide you with a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. There is not a 2 inch receiver available for either of these vehicles, most likely because...

  • How to Carry a Mobility Scooter on a 2017 Kia Forte Sedan
  • According to my research, you can carry a scooter on the rear of your 2017 Kia Forte. However, the weight of the scooter, carrier, trailer hitch, cargo, and passengers cannot exceed 849 lbs. If you need further information on this then you will want to take a look at page 5-91 of your owner's manual. If you do not already have a trailer hitch I recommend using the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24903 (22 lbs) because you do not need to remove any underbody panels...

  • Best Trailer Hitch to Use with Bike Rack on 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • The best trailer hitch for use with a bike rack on your 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon is the etrailer.com Class III Hitch # e98847 because of its robust 600 pound tongue weight capacity and its ideal bumper clearance measurement. This particular hitch when installed on the 2019 Outback has a measurement of 3-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper. This essentially provides the perfect balance of not sticking out far enough to bruise any nearby...

  • Can Trailer Hitch Install on Leased 2018 Hyundai Tucson
  • I'd first check the lease agreement to see if there's anything on hitch installs. There are no permanent modifications needed to be done on your vehicle to install a hitch like the Draw Tite part # 75836 which fits for your 2018 Hyundai Tucson so you'd most likely be able to just take it off before returning it and they'd not know it was ever there. I attached an install video for the hitch for you to check out too.

  • Hitch recommendation for Promaster 3500 extended
  • For your 2015 Ram ProMaster 3500 the Draw Tite # 76050 is a confirmed fit and would work great. It has more than enough capacity and the shortest install time listed of the hitches that fit your vehicle. You will need to start with a 4-way (if you do not have one). For that you would want the # 118618. Now if your trailer does not have brakes all you would need is the part # 37185 as an adapter to convert the 4-way to a 7-way. If you do have trailer brakes you would need the...

  • Towing Capacity of 2015 Ford Escape Titanium with 2.0 Liter Turbo
  • I looked up the towing capacity of your 2015 Ford Escape Titanium 2.0 Turbo and it has a capacity of 3,500 lbs so a 1,900 lb boat and trailer wouldn't be an issue at all. The factory trailer anti-sway feature that your vehicle lacks is not something you have to have. You'll do just fine without it. For a hitch I recommend the Draw Tite # 75782 that you referenced because it has the same towing capacity as your vehicle at 3,500 lbs, has a 2 inch opening, and has a concealed crosstube...

  • Is There a Trailer Hitch Receiver Compatible with a 2013 BMW 528xi?
  • I have a possible solution for you, but unfortunately there is not a trailer hitch fit for your 528xi from any of our manufacturers. Curt manufacturing only made a fit for the 2008 model year and had nothing before or following that model year for the 528xi. If you were looking to use the hitch for a bike rack, I recommend the Thule Raceway PRO 3-Bike Rack - Trunk Mount - Adjustable Arms # TH9002PRO which has the integrated locks. If you wanted the hitch for carrying, I recommend...

  • Can the Curt Trailer Hitch C11371 be Used to Tow a Trailer with a 2014 Chevrolet Cruze
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11371 can absolutely be used to tow a U-Haul trailer. However, the towing capacity of your Cruze is only 1,000 lbs so the trailer cannot exceed this figure. I was able to look up a few of the U-Haul trailers and there are some under this capacity. In addition to the above trailer hitch you will also need a trailer wiring harness like the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness part # C56214, a ball mount like the Curt Drawbar part # C45522, and...

  • Will Trailer Hitch fit 2018 Ford Escape Titanium with Hands-Free Liftgate Sensor

The sensor will still work though you will need to kick your foot on either side of the hitch receiver as opposed to the center. I do recommend taking a look at the Draw-Tite # 75782 over the aforementioned hitch because it has a concealed crosstube as opposed to it being exposed, which not only keeps the rear of your '18 Escape looking clean, but it is also going to...

The hitches we have for your 2009 Hyundai Genesis are lower in capacity like the Draw Tite Class II part # 36486 which has a 300 lb tongue weight capacity. Best option would be to go with a small trailer if this is the only tow vehicle you have. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well. You'll want to check your owners...

  • How Much Weight Can 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 Tow

Depending on how your truck is equipped the 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 could have a capacity of up to 10,450 lbs trailer weight. You'll want to check your owners manual or with a nearby Ram dealer to determine your specific capacity.

If you look at the online owner's manual (can be found a variety of ways) then you can pin point your weight rating. It could be that the trailer hitch included with your tow package it only rated for 5,000 lbs towing/500 lb tongue weight but that is something you can find on the trailer...

This means if you take this measurement out from the center of the existing hole on...

If you wanted to weld the hitch on I am not totally sure the safest way to do this.

But you'd have to verify that your vehicle also has the needed capacity.

  • What is Weight of Curt Hitch # C11329 and How Long to Install by Shop
  • The Curt hitch part # C11329 weighs 22 lbs which wouldn't make any noticeable difference for traction on a front wheel drive car. We've sold quite a few hitches over the years and we've yet to have anyone come back and tell us that winter weather traction was ever effected. Curt lists this hitch as taking about 45 minutes for a shop to complete the install. So less than an hour at their current shop rate. Most shops would charge at least one hour to do the install.

  • Compatibility of Trailer Hitch with 2018 Ford F-150 Max Towing Capacity
  • Unfortunately there is not a Class V hitch rated for over 12000 lbs towing from any of our manufacturers for your 2018 Ford F-150. The best hitch we currently offer # C14017 is rated for 12,000 lbs and 1200 lbs tongue weight when used with weight distribution and is made by Curt in the USA. Based on your specifications you must have the 3.5L GTDI V6 SuperCrew with 20 inch tires and wheels and the 3.55 axle ratio because that is the only option rated higher than this hitch.

  • Does Weight Distribution System Weight Have to Factored Into Total Tongue Weight Calculation
  • The actual weight of a weight distribution hitch system does NOT have to be added to the total tongue weight calculation the way things like trailer-mounted accessories do, or the way behind-the-rear-axle cargo in the vehicle has to. So long as your trailer hitch is rated for use with weight distribution/sway control (WD/SC) you can use a system that is rated correctly for your actual total TW. The Curt hitch # C13200 you referenced is rated for use with WD so if you have this hitch...
