  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2013 Chevy Traverse
  • Traverse and Trailblazers are different enough that the hitch designs between the two would be drastically different. For your 2013 Chevy Traverse you would want the # 75528 which is a confirmed fit. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch for 2018 Honda CR-V Touring
  • The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76128 referenced in your question will indeed fit your 2018 Honda CR-V Touring. This Class III trailer hitch will provide you with a 2 inch receiver opening and has a 4,500 pound towing weight capacity and 675 pound tongue weight capacity. It is custom-fit for the vehicle, which means it will use existing holes in the CR-V's frame for a no-drill installation. I have attached a short installation video on the 2017 CR-V that you can use...

  • What is the Second Hitch Pin Hole Used for on the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75600
  • The second pin hole that you are seeing on the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75600, for your 2013 BMW X5, is indeed for the use of a stabilization device. What you are supposed to use in a hitch receiver like yours is the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset # 63201. It is inserted into the main hitch pin hole and then has the J hook on the one end which when tightened down forces the shank to hug the side of the hitch receiver. This system is one of the...

  • Carrying a 300 Pound Scooter on a 2007 Honda Odyssey
  • The owner's manual doesn't specify a tongue weight capacity for the 2007 Honda Odyssey but it states that the tongue weight should be 10 percent of the gross trailer weight. Since the van is capable of towing up to 3,500 pounds maximum the tongue weight capacity would be 350 pounds. I do not know if you already have a trailer hitch but if not you can use # 75270. It has a tongue weight capacity of 675 pounds but you are still limited to 350 pounds. Standard hitch mounted motorcycle...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2002 Cadillac Eldorado for Towing Motorcycle Trailer
  • The Curt hitch part # C12068 that you referenced has a trailer towing capacity of 3,500 lbs so it would easily handle a small trailer that has a 700 lb motorcycle loaded in it. For trailer wiring you'd then want the part # C59236 which is a confirmed fit. For a ball mount part # C45522, 2 inch ball part # C40018, or 1-7/8 inch ball # C40001. Be sure to check the owners manual of your vehicle for the towing capacity as well.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ford Fiesta Sedan
  • You'd have to go with a small trailer as the hitches that fit your 2017 Ford Fiesta Sedan like the # 24910 don't have near the capacity you'd need for your 415 bike plus weight of carrier. For trailer wiring you'd then want the part # HM11140464 which is a confirmed fit and then for a ball mount # 3593, 2 inch ball # 19258, or 1-7/8 inch ball # 19256.

  • Does Draw Tite Hitch 24932 Fit 2018 Honda HR-V 2 Wheel Drive
  • For your 2018 Honda HR-V 2 wheel drive the Draw Tite hitch # 24932 is a confirmed fit. I confirmed this with Draw Tite as well. We had one person with a 2016 model say it fit tight to the bumper but when we installed it on a 2016 we found that it fit and worked well. See install video and picture for more info on that.

  • 2 inch Hitch Ball Recommendation that Fits Curt Trailer Hitch # C111343
  • A 2 inch ball mount cannot fit directly into the opening of the Curt hitch part # C11134 that you mentioned but a 2 inch hitch ball could if that's what you meant. We have the Euro ball mount part # C45572 which is a fit for this hitch that has a 2 inch ball.

  • Hitch Fit for 1987 Chevy S-10 With Factory Step Bumper
  • Curt hitch # C13132 is a confirmed fit for your 1987 Chevy S-10 with a factory step bumper and it will not require you to drill any holes; the hitch simply bolts on. There will be no issues as far as the spare tire is concerned, it will be able to stay mounted underneath the truck. 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.

  • Distance from Center of Hitch Pin Hole to Tab in Shank on Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch # 24907
  • Draw-Tite is actually going to stop including that tab on Class I hitches like # 24907. But on the ones that still have it the distance from the center of the pin hole to the tab is 1-7/8 inches so your ball mount will not fit. The recommended ball mount for this hitch is # 3593 and it includes a pin and clip. I have linked a video review of it for you.

  • Will Curt Hitch fit 2018 Honda CR-V EX-L?
  • According to Curt, the hitch you referenced, # C13306, will fit a 2018 Honda CR-V EX-L. If you are going to be towing, I recommend checking out Ball Mount Kit # 989900, which may fulfill your towing needs in one tidy package; two ball mounts - one with a 3/4” rise or 2” drop and the other with a 2-3/4” rise or 4” drop - a 1-7/8” hitch ball, a 2” hitch ball, and a pin and clip. You can use the link to the help article on ball mounts I've added to determine if this kit will give you the correct...

  • Will Curt Hitch and Westin Step Bumper Work Together on 1997 Ford F-250 HD?
  • To start with, the Westin Fey Diamondstep Rear Bumper # 20002-92230 will fit your 1997 Ford F-250 HD so long as it is a standard bed model. The Curt hitch # 14001 is also a fit for '97 F-250 HD's that have step bumpers such as the Westin (I've attached a photo which shows the hitch on a truck with a step bumper) and will work for you so long as you have the larger 37-3/4" frame and not a 34" frame. The Diamondstep bumper and Curt hitch attach on different parts of the frame so they will...

  • Trailer Hitch, Wiring Harness Kit and Related Towing Components for 2016 BMW X3
  • We can help you with a hitch, wiring and the related items needed to tow a rental trailer with your 2016 BMW X3. I recommend the higher-capacity hitch option which comes from Draw-Tite, their hitch # 75768, since it offers a 400-lb tongue weight (TW) rating as compared to 350-lbs for the Curt # C13316. TW is downward force on the hitch from the trailer's weight; you should be able to find out from the rental company what the specific trailer's empty TW is to confirm it will be compatible....

  • Recommendation to Transport 400 Pound Powered Wheelchair with 2018 Jeep Cherokee
  • I took a look at the online owner's manual for your 2018 Jeep Cherokee Latitude. It does state that for the 2.4L engine, the maximum tongue weight for this vehicle is 200 pounds. I do recommend verifying this information with your copy of the owner's manual, as it's very possible you have a different model and the information could differ. If this is correct, the best option for transporting your powered wheelchair will be with a small trailer, since the vehicle cannot safely handle...

  • Recommended Towing Components for 2015 to 2017 Chevy Traverse
  • The 2015 through 2017 Chevy Traverse models have a towing capacity of 2,000 lbs with the V6 3.6L. If you were to purchase the models with the factory tow package (all except the LS base model), the capacity increases to 5200 lbs according to the manufacturer. The tow package includes the trailer hitch and a heavy-duty cooling system. If you already have the non-tow package model, the manufacturer rating won't change because they didn't install the parts.

  • 2018 Grand Cherokee Curt Trailer Hitch Comparison
  • The square tube part # C13065 will be more hidden as it's cross-tube is up higher and the only thing that hangs down and is visible is just the hitch opening. I attached a picture that shows this hitch installed and you can see what I mean. The part # C13182 would have the cross tube visible so it wouldn't be my first choice if you were looking for as hidden of a hitch as possible.

  • 2 Bike Rack for a 2007 Honda Fit
  • I have a solution for you, however the Draw Tite SportFrame Class I, part # 24776 is only compatible with 2 bike racks. These Class I hitches can only handle weight within certain distances from the vehicle, and risk damage or failure if used with more than 2 bikes, even if you have a 3 or 4 bike rack equipped on the hitch. Instead, I recommend the Swagman Titan 2 Bike rack, part # S63400. This hanging rack is compatible with the 1-1/4 inch Class I hitch and includes an integrated bike...

  • Hitch Height of Curt Trailer Hitch for 2013 Ford Explorer for Picking Out Ball Mount
  • When we installed the Curt hitch part # C13100 on a 2013 Ford Explorer like yours we found the distance from the top of the hitch opening down to the ground to be 16-1/4 inches. So since your trailer has a distance from the bottom of the coupler lip to the ground when level of 14-1/2 inches you'd want a drop of 1-3/4 inches. The closest we have to that is a 2 inch drop like the Draw Tite ball mount part # 2923 which would work well. For a 2 inch ball you'd want the part # 63845...

  • Bike Rack and Anti-Theft Solution for Use with Draw Tite Hitch 75237 on 2009 Toyota Sienna
  • Since the Curt bike rack part # C18029 comes with a threaded hitch pin bolt there isn't a way to use the J-pin # 63201 with it. That being said we have found that the anti-rattle lock # SR0901 is a fit for the threads of the Curt bike racks so this would be the way to go. The Rhino Rack part # RRRBC045 is a great option as well. For an anti rattle hitch lock for use with this we have the part # RRRBCA023 that comes with a cable lock that you'd route through the frame of the bike and...

  • Ski Rack for a 2007 Saab 9-3 Convertible
  • Your best option is a trailer hitch receiver and a bike rack mounted option. For a receiver, I recommend the Curt Class I hitch, part # C11326. This will add a Class I hitch to your vehicle, letting you use many different 2 bike receivers. In particular, I recommend the Thule Parkway 2 Bike Rack, part # TH958 and the Thule Tram Ski Rack, part # TH9033. This kit will give you the ability to carry 4 pairs of skis on the rear of the vehicle inside the Tram. You'll want to make...

  • Tip to Fit Carriage Bolt and Spacer through Access Hole of 2018 Volkswagen Atlas for Hitch Install
  • I checked the install instructions for the Curt hitch part # C13366 that you referenced which is listed as a fit for your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas and they mention that if you can't get the carriage bolt and spacer to fit through the access hole you may need to remove some underbody coating to allow it to pass through. It sounds like thats what you have going on. What I would recommend is use a metal file or a dremol to widen the access hole slightly so that you can get the plate and bolt...

  • Does Hitch Need to be Factory Installed on 2015 Town & Country for Highest Towing Capacity?
  • I have not heard of a towing capacity being sliced in half based on who installed the items; I also went through the owner's manual of a '15 Chrysler Town and Country that I found online and there was no mention of towing capacity being reduced without factory equipment. I assume this was the car dealer who told you this? While I cannot tell you for certain that what that individual said is not true, I would make it a point to contact other Chrysler dealers and specifically ask about towing...

  • Is there a Custom Fit Trailer Hitch that is Hidden Behind the License Plate on a 1987 GM C/K Series
  • All of the trailer hitch options for the 1987 GM C and K series trucks will have the receiver placed directly under the rear bumper. There are no custom fit models that will fit behind the license plate. What you could do though is have a professional installer weld on a hitch, # 41990-07. This is actually a Class V hitch but it still has a 2 inch receiver.

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch C13381 Interfere with the Hands-Free Liftgate on a 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan

However, it is possible that it or any hitch will partially block the sensor and limit the areas you can kick your foot to trigger it to the areas to the left or right of the receiver. 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.

  • Will All of the Aftermarket Trailer Hitches Designed for a 2002 Ford F-350 Have the Same Drop?
  • The amount of recess and drop is really similar on all the hitches for your 2002 Ford F-350. For the least amount of drop, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 13355 or the # C14355. They both have the 2-1/2 inches from the outside of the bumper to the center of the hitch pin and the 18-1/2 inch measurement from the ground to the top of the inner receiver tube. These hitches have the least amount of ground clearance restriction. The # C13014...

They are rated for higher capacity simply because they are tested independently of the vehicle.

This measurement is taken from the ground to the top of the receiver tube opening on the hitch.
