  • The best trailer hitch we have for your 2019 Subaru Forester is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76271.

The other trailer hitch option we have for you is the Curt...

  • Which Trailer Hitch Would Fit 2012 Chevy Express Shuttle Bus on Cutaway Chassis
  • Your 2012 Express Shuttle Bus would be built on the cutaway chassis version of the 2012 Express Van so that means the correct hitch you'd need is the Buyers Products part # 3371801102 which was made for this style of chassis. I attached a picture that has dimensions of this hitch for you to check out as well.

  • 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...

  • Does Draw-Tite Hitch 75600 Require Bumper Fascia Trimming on 2016 BMW X5
  • Yes, Draw-Tite hitch # 75600 does require rear fascia trimming for installation on the 2016 BMW X5. The linked photo shows you an underneath view of the trimmed fascia. The normal above-ground view shown in the second photo gives you a better real-world perspective on the car's appearance after installation. The EcoHitch # 306-X7265 which fits the 2016 BMW X5 (except for the M Performance models) does not require you to cut the bumper, nor is any drilling required. The installation does...

  • 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...

  • How Does etrailer Hitch Look Installed on 2019 Subaru Crosstrek
  • I have added some photos of how the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch # E98912 will look when installed on a 2019 Subaru Crosstrek. Though these are photos of the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13382, the two hitches are the same except for the etrailer hitch has a matte black finish compared to the gloss black finish of the Curt hitch, which basically just means the etrailer hitch has a bit more of a rugged look and isn't quite as prone to scratches. As you can see by the photos, the etrailer.com Trailer...

  • Best Trailer Hitch for 2019 Subaru Ascent for Hitch Bike Rack
  • Between the Draw-Tite hitch # 76253 and the EcoHitch # 306-X7381 that both fit your 2019 Subaru Ascent if it were my money I would get the Draw-Tite. 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. Tongue weight capacity is what matters most for using a bike rack. But if you prefer a USA-made...

  • Easiest To Install Trailer Hitch for a 2019 Toyota RAV4
  • The easiest to install trailer hitch for your 2019 Toyota RAV4 is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13416 which should only take a novice around 30 minutes. The reason for this is because it is the only option that the manufacturer does not require the muffler to be lowered away from the vehicle for installation. The comparable Draw-Tite Receiver Hitches both state that the muffler must be lowered away from the vehicle for installation. I also recommend you go with the 2" receiver...

  • 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...

  • Comparing Draw-Tite, Curt, and EcoHitch Trailer Hitches for 2017 Subaru Outback

The EcoHitch is constructed from an alloy of recycled metals, which is something people do value and is the reason some people opt to go for it. That said, the Curt and Draw-Tite are going to be more cost-effective and they also have higher capacities than the 3,500 lb...

Curt hitch # 13358 and Draw-Tite hitch # 75601 are designed for models with a 144 inch and 170 inch wheelbases and that have the factory step bumper so yes, the Curt hitch # 13358 is a fit!

  • Choosing Hitch Installation on 2014 VW Jetta Sportwagen TDI and 2015 Volkswagen Passat 2.0L TDI
  • In a light-duty towing application like yours, to be perfectly honest, if it were my money I would choose the lowest cost hitch for whichever car you choose to equip with a hitch. All have identical capacities. For the 2014 VW Jetta Sportwagen TDI we have two compatible hitches, the Draw-Tite 1-1/4-inch Class I Sportframe Trailer Hitch # 24866 which will install on the Jetta's frame, and the 2-inch EcoHitch # 306-X7284 which does install at the bumper mounts.

The key differences are that the EcoHitch claims a shorter install time, is quite a bit more expensive, and is made from all recycled materials. So you pay a bit more for a shorter install time and a more environmentally friendly hitch. I attached a picture of what...

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.

It's also made in the USA unlike the Draw Tite which also has a visible crosstube which makes it stick out a bit more. See picture.

  • Comparing Draw-Tite and Curt Trailer Hitches for 2019 Subaru Ascent Touring
  • The benefits of the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 76253 that fits your 2019 Subaru Ascent Touring are that it has a concealed crosstube and also that it has a 750 lb tongue weight, which is the highest capacity tongue weight for any hitch that fits your vehicle. That said, the tongue weight will not come into play when you are using your bike rack and it is unlikely to be a factor for a tent trailer.

  • Comparing Draw-Tite and Curt Trailer Hitch for 2018 Mazda CX-5
  • The biggest difference between the Draw-Tite # 76138 trailer hitch and the Curt # C13315 trailer hitch that fit your 2018 Mazda CX-5 is the Draw-Tite has a higher tongue weight (675 lbs) and towing (4,500 lbs) capacity than the Curt (600 lbs tongue weight, 4,000 lbs towing). While you should never exceed the towing capacity outlined in your '18 Mazda CX-5's owner's manual I do recommend going the Draw-Tite # 76138 because those capacities speak to its strength and durability.

  • 2018 Subaru Crosstrek Hitch Comparison Curt vs. EcoHitch
  • The Ecohitch part # 306-X7365 and the Curt hitch part # C13382 are both USA made 2 inch hitches confirmed as a fit for your 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. The biggest difference is the removable lower section that the Ecohitch has which means that when you don't need the hitch you won't see it at all. The Curt does not have this so the hitch is visible at all times. Because of that the price difference is pretty large since that feature is more expensive and highly desired. The other thing to...

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.
