  • 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...

  • Comparing Draw-Tite and Curt Trailer Hitches for 2019 Ford Ranger

  • 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...

  • Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch vs Curt Trailer Hitch for 2020 Jeep Gladiator
  • There are a couple of pretty big differences between the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # DR64FR and the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # CU74FR that fit your 2020 Jeep Gladiator, and I'll go over them so you can decide which trailer hitch is the better option for you. The first big difference is the install, with the Draw-Tite hitch being a more "traditional" install that secures to your Jeep's trailer frame using a combination of existing hardware and supplied hardware. The Curt hitch,...

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. I've also attached a photo of each to show how similar...

  • Curt Trailer Hitch vs. Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch on 2020 Ford Escape
  • When it comes to the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # CU56FR compared to the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # DR47FR for your 2020 Ford Escape there are a couple of differences between the two that I'll go over for you. 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 accompanying photo is from the linked instructions...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Do I Need to Remove My Bumper Cover to Install a Hitch on my 2020 Subaru Outback like on my 2017
  • I've got some great news! 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. You will remove the lower cover which uses a few gastmers and will be able to slide your hitch between the trunk pan and bumper beam. It takes a lot of the work out of the installation for you. If you plan on hauling a trailer or using a cargo carrier with lights use Curt T-Connector...

  • 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...

The normal above-ground view shown in the second photo gives you a better real-world perspective on the car's appearance after installation.

  • Wiring Recommendations for 2020 Hyundai Palisade Limited
  • For your 2020 Hyundai Palisade Limited edition you will need a wiring kit to transfer the light signals to your trailer, the pre-wiring provides a plug for the trailer wiring to hook up. I recommend T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package # 118784. It provides a 4 way flat trailer connector and hooks directly into the tow package plug on the underside of your Palisade. It is a 1 piece, or 1 end connector, however there are adapters that will allow you to have both a 7 and 4...

  • Hitch Fit and Trailer Wiring Recommendation for 2020 Subaru Forester
  • The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2020 Subaru Forester is the EcoHitch part # 306-X7391 because this custom fit hitch has a concealed cross tube which gives it the most hidden look of all of the hitch options we carry. This also gives it the best ground clearance as well. I attached a picture of what it looks like installed for you to check out as well. For trailer wiring the Tekonsha kit part # 118467 is the most reliable and easiest to install option so it's what I recommend...

  • Differences Between Curt Class III Trailer Hitches for 2015 Subaru Forester
  • The primary difference between the two is that once installed, the # C13144 will be completely visible from the rear of the vehicle. 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....

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Differences Between Curt, Draw-Tite, and etrailer.com Trailer Hitches for 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • I definitely understand being a bit overwhelmed by the amount of options in front of you, however I can definitely help with differentiating the trailer hitches for your 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon along with explaining my personal recommendation, which is the Curt Class III # C13410. First off, all the hitches for your Subaru can be pretty easily broken down into two categories in terms of design; hidden and non-hidden. The Curt # C13410 and Draw-Tite # 76227 both feature a 2" receiver...

  • 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 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.

  • 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...

This is a bit different than the OEM version that actually protrudes through the bumper but it does still offer a really sleek appearance at a fraction of the cost. Between these two options I recommend the Draw-Tite # 76290...

  • Do Different Towing Capacities of Curt & Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Matter for 2020 Ford Ranger
  • In a word, yes, the towing capacities of the two trailer hitches do matter, and I'll explain why. I checked out the owner's manual and it states that your 2020 Ford Ranger has a maximum 7,500 lb towing capacity (so long as the trailer has brakes). This means that the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13417 does not have the same capacity as the truck unless used with a weight distribution system. The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76275 has a 7,500 lb towing capacity which means you...

But we also have the Curt # CU74FR which gives you that OEM look where it hangs just below the bumper. I attached a picture for you to check out as well.

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.

  • 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...

  • 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. The Curt Trailer Hitch # C13400, which will also fit a Touring model of '19 Ascent, has...

  • Hitch for 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon with Best Ground Clearance
  • For your 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon the best hitch for ground clearance is the Curt # C13410 which fits very tightly to the rear bumper of the vehicle but also doesn't have a crosstube that hangs below the bumper either which helps with ground clearance on uneven terrain as the only thing that hangs down is right in the middle. This has 1/2 inch better ground clearance than the Draw Tite that also fits. I attached a picture of what it looks like installed as well as an install video...

  • Draw Tite Trailer Hitch vs. Curt Trailer Hitch for 2020 Toyota RAV4
  • The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76201 and Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13416 that both fit a 2020 Toyota RAV4 are very much the same hitch, with only slight differences. That is the case a lot of times when it comes to trailer hitches but these two are particularly similar, from the install on the outside of your RAV4's frame rails, to the look it gives your Toyota. There are basically two actual differences - first, the Curt trailer hitch is assembled in the USA while the...

As for the differences, there are very few, and the installation of either hitch will have some small impact on ground clearance. I added side-by-side photos from the linked instruction manual that shows these hitches installed on a RAV4 and they will create a point lower to the ground than if you did not have a hitch, though it should not...

  • Will Hitch Installation Affect Hands-Free Liftgate Sensor Operation on a 2019 Audi Q5
  • The Hands-free Liftgate Sensors on your 2019 Audi Q5 will still function with any of the trailer hitches we carry installed, but since you are adding a big piece of steel near the sensors this will limit the area that the sensors pick up your foot movement to directly on either side of the hitch receiver. Out of the Draw-Tite # 76183, Curt # C13331, and EcoHitch # 306-X7397 options I highly recommend the Curt because in our experience their construction is better than the Draw-Tite and...
