Expert Answers about Trailer Hitch


  • Compare Trailer Hitches for a 2018 Toyota Highlander
  • There are a number of trailer hitch receivers that fit your 2018 Toyota Highlander and it can be confusing because they have a lot in common; however there are differences as well. Two of them, the Curt # C13200 and the etrailer.com # E98844, are virtually identical. A third, the Draw-Tite # 75896 is also the same basic design and installation. The biggest difference between these is the Curt and etrailer hitches have the hitch pin hole positioned about 1-3/4 inches further under the...

  • Comparing the Curt Hitch C13409 and Draw-Tite Hitch for a 2019 Subaru Forester
  • The best trailer hitch we have for your 2019 Subaru Forester is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76271. The reason that this is the best trailer hitch for you is because it is a custom fit which means no cutting or drilling is required. It has a class III, 2" receiver tube opening and is rated for a trailer up to 3,500 lbs. It also has a durable black powder coated finish and comes with a lifetime warranty. The other trailer hitch option we have for you is the Curt...

  • Total Weight of EcoHitch and Draw Tite Hitch for 2016 Subaru Forester
  • The total weight of the EcoHitch part # 306-X7216 that you referenced is 53 lbs. The total weight of the Draw Tite hitch part # 76182 you also mentioned is 35 lbs. I know you didn't ask for this, but I can't help but also feel compelled to you that the towing capacity for each is 3,500 lbs total trailer weight... The Draw Tite has a 525 lb tongue weight capacity and the Ecohitch has a 350 lb capacity. So the Draw Tite is lighter, rated higher, and costs less. It would be my...

  • Recommended Brake Controller for 2018 Subaru Outback
  • For a brake controller I recommend taking a look at the Curt Echo # C51180. This is a really unique controller that will simply plug into the 7-Way connector on your Outback and pair with your smartphone via Bluetooth after downloading the free app. This allows for a really simple installation and setup and eliminates the need for a separate unit to be permanently mounted inside your vehicle like other controllers. Its built-in accelerometer will activate the trailer brakes at the same...

  • Comparison of Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receivers that Fit a 2017 Toyota Highlander XLE FWD
  • The biggest difference is how much of the hitch can be seen once it's installed on your 2017 Toyota Highlander. With the # 75896 you can see the entire crosstube under the Highlander's bumper. However, the # 76156 hides the crosstube behind the bumper so all you see is the receiver tube opening and safety chain loops. The latter is becoming more and more popular for cosmetic reasons. It's also the one I recommend for the same reason. The Curt # C13200 also leaves the crosstube exposed...

  • Comparing the Curt # C13206 and the EcoHitch # 306-X7266 for a 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • I take it that you are debating over the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13206 and the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7266 for your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon because the Curt is rated for a higher weight capacity but the EcoHitch has a cleaner look. The thing that you need to remember is that when using your vehicle to tow or carry anything you always have to check the weight of the equipment you are using (trailer hitch) AND the weight rating for your vehicle. Whichever...

  • Benefits of Using TorkLift EcoHitch vs Draw-Tite and Curt on 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack
  • The trailer hitch options for your 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack can be seen on the linked page. The Class III TorkLift EcoHitch # 306-X7315 is the one that offers a 2-inch receiver opening, rather than the 1-1/4-inch receivers found on the Class I hitches from Draw-Tite and Curt, parts # 24949 and # C11422 Although the weight capacity of all three hitches is the same 200-lbs tongue weight and 2000-lbs towing, if you already own 2-inch accessories such as a bike rack or cargo carrier...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Chevy Traverse
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13380 sits underneath the factory bumper cover. I've attached a photo to assist. For the fit you are seeking, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76184 which will allow the bumper cover to be installed over the cover to hide and protect it when not in use. If you need the wiring, I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 7-Way Trailer Connector # 118287 and mounting bracket # PK12711U. For...

  • Distance from Bumper to Top of Curt Trailer Hitch C15703 on a 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15703 hangs pretty low on a 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500. From the bottom of the bumper to the top of the hitch receiver it is approximately 4 inches. I have included a picture showing the gap. A similar hitch, # C15302, which also fits your truck is much tighter to the bumper with only a fraction of an inch of space between the bumper and receiver.

The Draw-Tite # 76176 will have the receiver tube extend about 6-1/2 inches from the rear mounting hole and will drop 8.8 inches from the mount to the bottom of the receiver tube according to my tech contract at Draw-Tite.

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2019 Honda Odyssey with the Best Ground Clearance
  • We carry four 2 inch trailer hitches that fit the 2019 Honda Odyssey: Draw-Tites # 76170 and # 76171, a Curt # C13370, and one from us # E98855. All of them are basically the same design except for the Draw-Tite # 76170. When we installed it on a 2018 Odyssey it was an inch lower than the other three, which were all the same. Of the others that have more clearance I recommend the etrailer.com hitch, # E98855. Since they're all very similar and this one is less expensive I see that...

  • Draw-Tite vs Eco-Hitch for 2018 Subaru Outback
  • All 2-inch hitches we offer for your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon appear on the page I linked for you and these of course include the Draw-Tite # 76227 and the Eco-Hitch # 306-X7266, both of which require a MUCH more involved installation process than other options we offer. Both require removal of the rear bumper so that the hitch mounting plates can go in between the bumper and the rest of the vehicle. This is shown in the linked photo. To be perfectly honest with you, if I were making...

  • Comparing Curt 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver to Other Options for 2018 Mazda CX-5
  • That is a great question. Our pricing reflects the manufacturer pricing and many other factors at any given time. If you are interested in that Curt hitch, then I recommend the etrailer.com hitch which is identical to that hitch with the difference being the powder coat color. The # C13315 is gloss black and the # e98902 is the matte black carbide finish. Your other option for the higher rated capacities is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76138 which has a slightly...

The good news is that these trailer hitches install very similarly and so will pretty much look the same. The Draw-Tite sits slightly higher which is why installing that particular hitch requires the fascia...

  • Is the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch for a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek Hidden Like the Curt Hitch
  • I have included a picture showing what Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 76209 looks like when installed on a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. (It may take a little while for the picture to appear.) The crosstube on this hitch will be visible below the rear fascia on the back of the vehicle. Like you said the Curt hitch # C13382 is mostly hidden with the exception of the receiver. The difference is tongue weight capacity between the 2 hitches is not a factor because the vehicle itself has a maximum tongue...

  • Comparing the 2 Trailer Hitches for a 2018 Honda CR-V
  • The biggest difference between the Draw-Tite # 76128, Curt # C13397, and etrailer # e98848 trailer hitches for your 2018 Honda CR-V is that the Draw-Tite has a visible cross tube once installed while the Curt and etrailer have a "hidden" design where only the receiver is visible (see comparison photo). The Curt and etrailer hitches have the exact same design and will install the same way but I recommend going with the etrailer hitch over the Curt option because it has a matte black finish...

  • Ground Clearance with Curt Trailer Hitch C12177 Installed on a 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan
  • When we installed Curt trailer hitch # C12177 on a 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan, see video link, it measured 11-1/2 inches from the ground to the top of the receiver opening. That means that from the ground to the bottom of the receiver is approximately 9 inches. There is actually a vehicle component forward of the hitch that hangs lower. For the hitch to make contact with the ground the front axle would have to be up on a very steep incline. Draw-Tite hitch # 76192 sits up higher but there...

I reached out to the manufacturer and this specific model has a hitch pin that is behind the bumper and accessible from underneath your vehicle. It is a tight fit to allow for that streamlined and sleek look. If you will be towing with either trailer hitch, I recommend the T-One Vehicle...

  • Is Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 76184 a Good Fit for a 2018 Chevy Traverse
  • There actually isn't a problem with the hitch, # 76184, for the 2018 Chevy Traverse. We have had twice as many people have no problems at all than those that did so I think I can explain what happened in those 2 issues. While I can't say why the one customer had such a hard time removing the fascia but as far as the alignment issue that was mentioned there is a simple explanation. Basically, hitches can flex. And when they get tossed around in the shipping process it can cause the holes...

  • Actually the Draw-Tite # 76112, Curt # C13343, etrailer # e98853, and EcoHitch # 306-X7255 all install so that only the receiver is showing. A lot of people like this look instead of having a thick piece of steel underneath their vehicle as well. You are correct in choosing a Class III trailer hitch with a 2" receiver over a Class II trailer hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver. The reason being that they are stronger and they are compatible with many more accessories. For your application I...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver to Fit a 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "direct fit" because all three of the Class III trailer hitch receivers we carry for your 2014 Subaru Outback are custom made and designed for your vehicle. The hitch that has the most factory-like look is the Ecohitch, part # 306-X7162. Once installed all you see is the open receiver tube under the rear bumper of your Subaru. Take a look at the picture I attached. The downside to this hitch is the install requries the bumper to be temporarily...

These will both install at the same location on your vehicle's frame and the hitch visibility for both models will be about the same. The primary difference between the two is their weight capacity.

  • Is Trimming Of Fascia On 2017 Chevrolet Spark Required When Installing Trailer Hitch
  • You are correct. The photos of the trailer hitch installations do appear as though the hitch receiver is below the fascia. Since the fascia wraps under the vehicle the trimming is done on the underside so the receiver can fit. I have attached a photo of the fascia that shows how much is trimmed on the underside for the Curt Hitch, part # C11433. The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 24941 has similar dimensions for the trimming. Both of these trailer htiches are Class l and have 1-1/4...

Both are custom hitches so no drilling is required (although you may need to enlarge some access holes) and they both are Class III trailer hitches with a 2" receiver. The cost of the # 75876 is lower because the hitch is less intricate which results in the easier installation as well. The cost of the # 76182 is higher because it is specially designed to...

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.

  • Why Does Draw Tite Hitch # 76112 Have Longer Install Time Than Other Hitches

I attached two pictures. The one that shows the underside of the rear of the vehicle is the # 76112 and the other is the # 75237.

  • Why Does Draw Tite Make Two Trailer Hitches for 2018 Honda Odyssey
  • The hitch to go with for your 2018 Honda Odyssey is the part # 76171 in my opinion. Because it has a lower price, higher towing capacities, and is compatible with weight distribution (a feature you most likely wouldn't need, but still...). Only "downside" is that it has a visible crosstube. The benefit to the part # 76170 is that it has a hidden cross tube so it's advantage is that it's much less visible. Either hitch will work great but it depends on what you value most for your hitch.

The Draw-Tite # 75051 may tuck away ever so slightly, but not so much as to create a noticeable difference in aesthetics on your truck compared to the Curt hitch.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2018 Nissan Titan SV
  • Both the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Receiver Hitch # 76154 and the Curt Class III Round Tube Receiver Hitch # C13304 are confirmed to fit your 2018 Nissan Titan SV. Between these two options I recommend going with the Draw-Tite # 76154. Both hitches feature identical 8,000 pound towing and 800 pound tongue weight capacities but the Draw-Tite model will give you about 1-1/4 inches more of ground clearance when it's installed on your Titan SV. Because of its design it will also be...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2016 Ford Edge with Hands-Free Liftgate Sensor
  • I can help you find a hitch for your 2016 Ford Edge Sport. All of the trailer hitches offered for your vehicle will only slightly interfere with your power lift gate. The only area affected is right by the hitches receiver, it should function properly as long as you wave your foot not directly below the hitch receiver. I would highly recommend the Draw-Tite hitch # 75234 over the Curt hitch # C13234 you were looking at, because of the higher weight capacity and the fact that you...

Both hitches will take about the same time for installation (2+ hours) but because the Draw-Tite has a much higher tongue weight (TW) rating of 750-lbs versus 500-lbs for the EcoHitch, and because it costs a good bit less, I would go that route.

  • On your 2017 Jaguar F-Pace the bumper beam is removed for installation of the Draw-Tite hitch # 76026 because the cross tube spans the space between where it mounts to the vehicle. The bumper beam is curved but doesn't stick out far enough on the ends for the design of the hitch. The bumper beam is therefore removed and the hitch basically takes its place. On the Curt hitch # C13291 the cross tube is not as long so the curved bumper beam can fit around it and you won't have to leave...
