  • Difference Between Eco Hitch EH34FR and Curt CU89FR for 2020 Subaru Outback Touring
  • Both the Curt # CU89FR and the EcoHitch # EH34FR hitches share some similarities. They install in the same manner, by being sandwiched between the bumper beam and the trunk pan of the vehicle. Both hitches are a concealed style, with only the receiver tube and the safety chain loops being visible from the rear. They would both have a pretty similar appearance once installed. Both hitches are manufactured in the USA, and are high quality. The differences lie within the capacities, with...

  • Compatibility of EcoHitch Stealth Hitch Receiver # 306-X7373 on 2020 Tesla Model 3
  • The EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 306-X7373 is a fit for the 2020 Tesla Model 3. The EcoHitch is completely hidden behind the bumper and has a removable square receiver tube. The receiver tube unbolts from the cross body of the hitch. When you put the receiver tube back in the hitch you have to tighten the bolt down. I have attached an installation video for your reference. An easier completely hidden hitch option for the 2020 Tesla Model 3 is the Stealth Hitches Rack...

  • Does Curt Trailer Hitch or Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Require Fascia Trimming to Install
  • Yes, one of the trailer hitches that fits your 2020 Kia Soul does require a small amount of fascia trimming during the install. The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24985 requires you to cut a 1 inch long x 5-1/2 inch wide section of the fascia underneath your 2020 Kia Soul. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C67FR does not require any type of fascia trimming, and the installs are otherwise the same so if you were looking to avoid trimming then I recommend the option from Curt.

  • Recommended Hidden Hitch and Wiring For 2020 Subaru Ascent
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver 2" part # C25VR is a fit for the 2020 Subaru Ascent. The Curt hitch is hidden behind the removable fascia panel at the rear the Subaru. When the hitch is not in use the panel can be replaced for a completely hidden clean OEM look. I have attached a photo for your reference. If you plan on towing a trailer you will need wiring. For that I recommend T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector part # 118790. The Tekonsha wiring is more...

  • Comparing Curt Hitches for a 2017 Toyota RAV4
  • The differences between the between the Curt # C13149 and the Curt # C13406 for your 2017 Toyota RAV4 are that the 13149 has a visible crosstube and is rated for use with a weight distribution system while the 13406 has a concealed crosstube (for a more sleek look) and it isn't rated for use with a weight distribution system. If you plan on towing I recommend using the 13149 but if you just plan on using it for recreational items like a bike rack or cargo carrier then I recommend the...

  • Does Install of Draw Tite Hitch on 2019 Honda Passport Require Fascia/Bumper Modification
  • The install of the Draw Tite hitch part # 76290 is as simple as lifting the hitch into place and then using the included bolts to secure it to the vehicle frame. There is no fascia or bumper trimming at all. This also has more than enough capacity as the hitch is rated for up to 6,000 lbs trailer weight. The install is the same as the Curt # C13421 but this hitch has a lower capacity of 5,000 lbs trailer weight so I recommend the Draw Tite. To tow a trailer you will also need trailer...

  • Comparing Draw-Tite and Curt Trailer Hitches for Ground Clearance on 2020 Toyota RAV4
  • When we installed the Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch # 76201 and the Curt Class III # C13416 on the 2019 model Toyota RAV4, we actually measured an identical ground clearance measurement of 12". This is taken from the ground to the top of the 2" receiver. So when it comes to ground clearance neither hitch is going to have the advantage over the other on your 2020 RAV4, although that doesn't means there's still not a clear overall winner between the two. For your RAV4 I highly recommend...

  • What is the Difference Between the Draw-Tite 76253 and Curt C25VR for 2020 Subaru Ascent
  • There are some slight differences between the Draw-Tite # 76253 and the Curt # C25VR, but it's mostly down to the quality of the powder coat on the two hitches. The powder coating on the Curt hitches is traditionally applied a bit thicker and is a better quality, in my opinion. This is going to translate to less dings and scratches and generally means that the hitch is going to be less susceptible to corrosion over the long term, so I do recommend going with the Curt # C25VR hitch for your...

  • We have a version of the EcoHitch that fits your 2016 BMW X5 that was designed for versions of the vehicle that have the backup sensors with part # EH44FR.

  • Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver vs. Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2020 Kia Telluride
  • The biggest difference between the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13420 and Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT32RR that fit your 2020 Kia Telluride is one step during the installation. While neither installation is terribly complicated (relative to hitch installs), the Curt does require you to trim a 3-1/2" wide x 3-1/8" long section of the bumper fascia underneath your Telluride, while the Draw-Tite does not require you to do any fascia trimming. Other than that the hitches are...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2020 Subaru Outback
  • The trailer hitch I recommend for a 2020 Subaru Outback is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # CU89FR. The Curt Trailer Hitch is a custom, bolt-on fit with no drilling required so there are no major permanent modifications needed. The Curt Trailer Hitch has a hidden design so only the receiver tube will be present once installed which makes for the best look and gives the best ground clearance. I have attached a photo for you.The best part of all is that there are no special tools required...

These trailer hitches basically install in the same way and are excellent options that offer a super concealed look, so it's not that one is necessarily better for your Honda Odyssey than the other, but I'll point out for you what the main differences are to help you decide which to go with.

  • How To Tell If a Ford Transit Has the Tow Package and Parts Needed To Add It
  • The Ford Transit if equipped with the factory tow package would have came with both a trailer hitch and trailer connector and they would both be located directly under the rear bumper so odds are you do not have either because they are not hard to locate. The factory tow package was also not a very common option but I can provide you with everything to add this on your own at a fraction of the price.

  • Best Trailer Hitch for Mounting Trailer Wiring Harness on 2021 Toyota Highlander
  • The best trailer hitch receiver for your 2021 Toyota Highlander which is going to allow the easiest mounting of a trailer wiring harness is definitely the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT84MR. The reason the Draw-Tite is better than the similar Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C45CR is because the Draw-Tite has a built-in mounting point to attach a bracket, and the Curt does not; I have added a photo of the mounting point for you to check out. The correct 4-way trailer wiring harness...

It is no longer required that you remove the rear bumper cover on your 2020 Subaru Outback when installing the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" part # CU89FR.

The first is the style, with the Curt hitch being a concealed crosstube which only shows the receiver, while the Draw-Tite is a visible crosstube, so the Curt is going to maintain your Escape's look better than the Draw-Tite.

The # CU64FR is designed a bit differently, the hitch crossbar will be concealed behind the bumper with the only visible portion of the hitch being the receiver tube and the safety chain hoops. The # CU64FR is preferred by most because the entire hitch isn't visible. Because we pay more for the hitch and it's more in demand, the # C13144 is priced higher....

We've found that the powder coat finish Curt uses to have a slight edge over that of the Draw-Tite, so that's what I'd recommend.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2020 Honda Pilot with Full Size Spare
  • The trailer hitch I recommend for a 2020 Honda Pilot is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75225. I have installed all of the available trailer hitches on this very same vehicle and this was my favorite option due to having a better fit and there being an integrated bracket for the trailer connector. I have attached an install video for you. In regards to spare wheel/tire compatibility, 18" is in regards to the wheel diameter not the overall tire diameter. That said,...

The reason for that is both hitches install in the exact same spot on the frame, and both will be about flush with the bumper on your Sprinter. Both hitches have a 6,000 lb towing capacity and 600 lb tongue weight capacity but the biggest differences are that...

The first difference is the look; as you can see by the accompanying photo, the Curt and etrailer hitch have a concealed crosstube while the Draw-Tite has an exposed crosstube. What that means is the tube (the main body) of the Draw-Tite hitch is going to be visible while the...

  • Is Draw-Tite Hitch Hidden Like Curt Hitch for 2020 Subaru Crosstrek
  • The hidden design of the Curt hitch # C12184 is very appealing and since Draw-Tite actually doesn't have a hidden crosstube design for your 2020 Subaru Crosstrek I definitely recommend going with it over the Draw-Tite # 36644. Curt has a great reputation when it comes to trailer hitches and we have actually found that their hitches tend to have better welds and a thicker powder coat which combined means they hold up better than the Draw-Tite versions. I would like to point out that the...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Height and Looks for Aftermarket Options on a 2020 Kia Telluride
  • Typically when the aftermarket hitch manufacturer's design isn't 100% the same as the OEM it's because their install would require an excessive amount of fascia trimming. The Curt # C13420 will ultimately sit higher (at 15-1/2" to the top inside of the receiver) since you have to cut some of the fascia, but the Draw-Tite # DT32RR will look cleaner on your 2020 Kia Telluride since it just fits right up into place and you don't have to cut any fascia.
