  • 2-Inch Hitch to Allow Use of Thule Vertex Swing 4-Bike Rack TH9031XT on 2016 Honda CR-V
  • The Draw-Tite 2-Inch Class III hitch # 75742 is a confirmed fit for the Honda CR-V for model years 2012 through 2016. It will not fit on any other vehicles. If it is ever necessary to move the hitch from one compatible CR-V to another all you need is the replacement hitch hardware kit # RHK. Hitch installation hardware cannot be used a second time so this new hardware kit will ensure a safe installation that allows the hitch to meet its specs. This hitch is an excellent choice for use...

  • 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...

  • Recommended 1-1/4-Inch Trailer Hitch for 2008 Scion xB
  • We do not maintain relationships with local installers for the hitches we sell but our hitch vendors, such as Draw-Tite and Curt, do provide a dealer-locator service on their websites. Many of our customers tackle the install on their own since we include hardware, instructions as well as videos to help. The hitch I recommend for your 2008 Scion xB is the light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class II model from Curt, part # C12490. This offer a higher weight capacity than the same-size Class I hitch...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness for 2017 Chevy Traverse
  • The Curt Class III Receiver Hitch # 13424 referenced in your question, which is confirmed to fit your 2017 Chevy Traverse, does require that the fascia door panel be removed during installation. Once the trailer hitch is installed, it is unlikely that you will be able to reattach the fascia panel. I have included an installation video on this vehicle that you can use for reference. This is a very nice, Class III hitch that will provide you with a 2 inch receiver opening and has a towing...

We have both 1-1/4-inch Class II and 2-inch Class III hitches, all shown on the linked page, that are confirmed to fit the Sport and non-Sport versions of the 2013 Edge. I suggest a 2-inch hitch for its higher capacity and broader compatibility with hitch-mount accessories like bike racks and cargo carriers. The larger hitches usually cost around the same as the Class II models so its an easy call. Use part # 75728...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2011 Hyundai Sonata
  • The available trailer hitches for the 2011 Hyundai Sonata are Class I hitches with a 200 pound tongue weight capacity. What this means is that the cargo carrier you use will need to be compatible with a Class I trailer hitch and you are limited to 200 pounds minus the weight of the carrier itself. I have included a link below to the Class I compatible carriers for you. If it were me I would choose Curt carrier # C18110. It weighs 30 pounds meaning you could put 170 pounds in it before...

  • M10 Bolts Will Not Thread Into the Frame to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2015 Kia Sorento
  • The weld nuts in the frame on your 2015 Kia Sorento are likely packed with grime and corrosion. Cleaning them out will allow the bolts to thread in. Basically you will spray the holes with PB Blaster or WD40 and let them soak for about 15 minutes. Then start cleaning them out with a wire brush, like a battery terminal cleaner or a tube brush such as # 814113. You may need to repeat the process more than once. I have included some helpful links below on cleaning weld nuts for you.

  • Trailer Hitch and Brake Controller Recommendation for 2016 Ford Explorer i4 Ecoboost 2.3L
  • First let's start with the hitch. For that the Draw Tite hitch part # 76034 is the correct fit and would be the best option for towing. I attached an install video as well. You will need to start with a 4-way (if you do not have one). For that you would want the # 118540 which does easily plug into your vehicle's wiring. From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install the brake controller. For that you will want the Brake Controller Install Kit and...

  • Solution for Install Bolts that Seem to Bit Got Install Draw Tite Hitch 24914
  • The problem you are experiencing is pretty common for vehicles that have seen a couple winters. What happens is the weld nuts get a bit of corrosion in them and that prevents the bolts from being able to thread. This makes it seem like the nuts are too small. I checked your order notes and your up north where the winters are pretty harsh too so that makes this even more likely. What you'll need to do it clean the weld nuts out so that you can thread the included bolts. I have included...

  • What will be Needed to Setup a 2014 Jeep Cherokee Latitude to Tow a Boat and Trailer

The attached picture is from the 2014 Jeep Cherokee owner's manual and lists the maximum trailer weight ratings for all the Cherokee drivetrain options for the 2014 year.

  • Most Concealed Trailer Hitch Receiver to Fit a 2017 Toyota RAV4
  • The most concealed trailer hitch receiver that fits your 2017 Toyota RAV4 is the Draw-Tite # 76134. It installs behind the bumper fascia so the only part of the hitch you see is the open receiver tube and safety chain loops. The cross tube is hidden, unlike the other hitches for your vehicle. There is a likelihood that the hitch will interfere with the rear lift gate sensors but this is the case with any of the hitches we offer. I've linked the install details, as well as an install...

  • What is the Ground Clearance With the Draw-Tite # 75234 Installed on a 2017 Ford Edge
  • For your 2017 Ford Edge I recommend installing the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75234. This trailer hitch installs so that the only visible part is the receiver itself. When we installed this hitch on a similar 2017 Edge we found that from the ground to the bottom of the safety chain loops is 8-1/2 inches. You can use that to gauge the ground clearance lost compared to your current ground clearance. The trailer hitch itself weighs about 30 lbs and has a Max Tongue Weight...

This trailer hitch receiver will allow you to store your full size spare with aluminum rim stowed under your vehicle without issue. This is the strongest hitch option for your vehicle and is rated for 6000 lb towing weight and 900 lbs tongue weight.

  • Installing and Using a Curt Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2017 Kia Sorento
  • The Curt Class III Trailer Hitch, part # C13195 is a custom fit for your 2017 Kia Sorento, and the Thule Hitching Post Pro, part # TH934XTR will fit this hitch well. Curt does require using a stabilizing strap like part # 18050 to stay in compliance with their warranty. These straps make a significant difference in the movement of bike racks and cargo carriers, so I tend to recommend their use in most situations. The installation for this hitch involves lowering and removing a fascia...

  • Why Does Curt Hitch For Toyota Corolla Require Stabilizer Strap but not Draw Tite
  • Curt requires the strap to provide extra support for when the vehicle goes over rough pavement or experiences a sudden shock like hitting a pothole. Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch feel that this isn't necessary with their hitches. Because the strap is an extra expense, and because some vehicles just aren't well suited to using the strap, I'll usually recommend going with the Draw-Tite hitches. So for your 2016 Toyota Corolla I would recommend the # 24913.

  • Can the Motorcycle Carrier MT70101 be Used to Carry a Yamaha Street Bike on a 2013 Nissan Murano
  • I have some good news and bad news; the good news is that you are definitely on the right track of making sure that you are under the 400-lb Tongue Weight (TW) capacity of your Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13577. The bad news is that your 2013 Nissan Murano looks like it is the limiting factor instead of your Curt hitch receiver. Your Murano has a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs and typically the TW is 10% of that making your TW capacity 350 lbs instead of 400. You will want to double check...

  • Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Ram 1500
  • For your 2016 Ram 1500 you can use Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 41948. It has a tongue weight capacity of 1,500 pounds and gross trailer weight capacity of 12,000 pounds so it will cover the weights of the loaded trailers that you have. At least I am pretty sure. I just don't know how much a 1958 Massey Ferguson tractor weighs! I want to say in the neighborhood of 5,000 to 6,000 pounds but I suppose it depends on the exact model. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation...

There are cargo carriers that are going to work for your '06 Beetle, but please keep in mind both of the hitches that fit your car are Class I rated and have 1-1/4" receivers, which unfortunately rules out the...

  • You should not have to remove the rear fascia on your 2018 Audi A4 Allroad to install Draw-Tite trailer hitch # DT24950 but it would help you have more space to work if you did. There aren't any specific instructions for that though. It might be helpful to have someone pull rearward on the fascia just enough to give you space to put the plate with both bolts in it into position. That way you would not have to remove the fascia to get the required space. That would be the first thing...

  • Why Does Trailer Hitch for 2013 Ford Fusion Have Higher Towing Capacity than Vehicle
  • Our trailer hitches are designed with the towing capacity of the vehicle they are intended for in mind, but they are then rated separately which is why you'll see a lot of time our hitches having higher towing capacities than the vehicles they fit. So we have the Curt hitch part # C12091 which is a great option that has a 3,500 lb towing capacity by itself, but when installed on your 2013 Ford Fusion it would have only the lower vehicle rating as the overall capacity.

  • Curt or Draw Tite Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2013 Buick Verano
  • Function wise the Draw Tite part # 24882 is the winner for your 2013 Buick Verano. The reason I say that is that the Curt you mentioned requires the use of a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack and the Draw Tite does not. So it is the winner in my opinion.

This is the hitch mounted option which will be you most stable option.

  • Do Holes have to be Drilled in 2014 Toyota Camry if Trailer Hitch is Just for a Bike Rack
  • I cannot recommend installing Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 36540 on your 2014 Toyota Camry in any other way other than what is specified in the instructions. If you do it will void the hitch warranty and actually makes the capacity unknown (since it isn't tested in that manner). You also have to consider stability of the hitch. Without all of the fasteners the hitch could move and flex more than it is supposed to and that could damage the hitch and vehicle. The instructions state that a...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon for Recumbent
  • We have a solution, but due to the design of the factory 1-1/4 inch hitches of the new Subaru vehicles you'd have to replace the factory hitch as none of the recumbent racks we offer will fit it due to the shallow hitch pin depth. So for a hitch you'd want the part # 75673 which is a confirmed fit and is a 2 inch hitch like what our recumbent racks like the part # HR1450R are designed to fit. This rack also comes with locks for the hitch and the bike so it wouldn't need additional locks....

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2017 Mazda 3 Hatchback
  • First, for your 2017 Mazda 3 hatchback, you will need a trailer hitch. I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24914 because it does not have any special requirements like the Curt option does. For a bike rack the Kuat Transfer # TS02G, is a popular option. It holds the bikes at the wheels so it is compatible with many bike styles. The U-shaped rack frame makes loading and unloading the bikes easier. I have included a link to a video review of this rack for you. If you prefer the hanging...

The best hitch lock will vary on the bike rack that you use. I really like the Saris Freedom Superclamp part # SA4025. This is a lightweight platform rack (which is normally an unheard of combo). That means it'll be easy to install and remove from your vehicle since it's light, but also it'll be very easy to load...
