Expert Answers about Trailer Hitch


  • Trailer Hitch for a 2002 Chevy Tracker 4-Door and 4-Wheel Drive
  • I checked with Draw-Tite and trailer hitch # 41537 fits all styles of the 1999 to 2004 Chevy Tracker so that would include a 4-door 4-wheel drive model. 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 right rise...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2017 Toyota RAV4
  • Whenever available the hitch mounted bike rack options are the way to go. Hitch options provide the easiest to load/unload, the most secure mounting location, and they don't touch any painted surfaces. You'll need a hitch installed on your 2017 Toyota RAV4 like the Draw Tite part # 75235 and then you'll be able to install a lightweight hitch rack. I really like the Saris Freedom Superclamp part # SA4025F. This is a lightweight platform rack (which is normally an unheard of combo)....

  • Recommended Hitch Expander Adapter for 1-1/4 Inch to 2 Inch Hitch Receiver
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11088 is a Class I trailer hitch, so it will not match up with the MaxxTow Trailer Hitch Receiver Adapter - 1-1/4" (Class II) to 2" Hitch # MT70355. You can instead use the Hitch Adapter 1-1/4" to 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # HTAD or Hitch Adapter 1-1/4" to 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver with 5" Rise # HT5R. Both of these are rated for use with Class I trailer hitches but you will reduce the tongue weight capacity of your hitch by 50%. So your hitch that...

  • Can Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75549 be Used as a Step on a 2017 Mercedes Sprinter 2500
  • The receiver on Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75549 does stick out past the bumper a few inches on the 2017 Mercedes Sprinter 2500. Take a look at the picture I have included for an example. There isn't a whole lot of space and no grip on the metal receiver so I recommend a hitch step such as # BBS-1102 or, if you will be towing, the Tow & Go Hitch Step for Ball Mounts # RP7060200 as much safer alternatives. I have linked videos on all 3 products for you.

  • Does Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch 76046 Interfere w/the Automatic Lift Gate on a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica
  • No one has complained about Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 76046 interfering with the automatic lift gate feature on the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. On other vehicles with the same feature some people had minor issues (the sensor area was limited after the hitch was installed) and others who did not. I have linked a video showing an example installation of this hitch for you.

  • Recommended Bike Rack and Trailer Hitch for 2017 Ford Explorer
  • The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76034 would be a great choice for your 2017 Ford Explorer, and as far as a locking pin is concerned, you would only need one for the bike rack, and would not need need an additional one; any decent bike rack will have a hitch lock available and since you are (wisely) concerned with quality, the rack I think you'll really like is going to have that feature. I strongly recommend checking out the Kuat Sherpa 2.0, which comes in your choice...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2018 Mazda CX-3
  • Curt trailer hitch # C11418 is a fit for the 2018 Mazda CX-3. I have linked a video showing an example installation on a 2016 and the process will be basically the same on your 2018. If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier then you have to make sure the accessory is rated for use with a Class I trailer hitch. Also, with a bike rack, you are limited to 2 bikes maximum on a Class I hitch. Curt also says you have to use stabilization strap #...

  • Starting with the trailer hitch, the Curt Class I Round Tube Receiver Hitch # C11254 that you referenced is confirmed to fit your 2016 Hyundai Veloster and will work well. This Class I hitch will provide you with a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening and features a towing capacity of 1,000 pounds. I also recommend verifying the vehicle's capacity by checking your copy of the owner's manual. You will always need to follow whichever limit is lower, the vehicle's or the hitch's.

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle Device for the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier
  • The MaxxTow MaxxHaul Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier part # MT70101 actually comes with a clamp around style anti-rattle device. However, since you will be using this carrier with the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76104 for your 2010 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited you can also take advantage of an additional stabilization pin like part # 63201 which also has a lock. I have attached a review/install video of the above stabilization pin so you can get a better idea of how it works.

  • Is Trailer Hitch for 2010 Mazda 3 Compatible With Thule Bike Rack?
  • The Draw-Tite # 24843 trailer hitch that fits your 2010 Mazda 3 is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver (as are all of the hitches available for your vehicle). Without knowing your exact model of Thule bike rack I would be unable to tell you its compatibility, only that your rack would need to have a 1-1/4" shank and be Class I compatible, like the Thule Roadway # TH912XTR. If you let me know what model number, or possibly even the name of the rack you have I should be able to give...

  • According to the online owners manual for the 2014 Toyota Tundra the maximum that the truck can tow is 10,400 pounds and that is for a specific model (2-wheel drive, regular cab, long bed with 5.7 liter and factory towing package). The Double and CrewMax cab styles have slightly lower ratings of 10,100 and 9900-lbs respectively.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander
  • For a trailer hitch confirmed as a fit for your 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander we have the Curt hitch part # C13163 which would fit and work well. This is a Class III hitch with plenty of towing capacity at 4,000 lbs trailer weight capacity. For wiring you'd then want Tekonsha kit part # 118482 which is a confirmed fit and will work well. This is our most reliable brand/option that we have so it would be a great choice. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for 3,800 lb Trailer
  • We have hitches that are confirmed as a fit for your 2016 Mercedes GLE 350 that are also compatible with weight distribution systems like the Draw Tite part # 76141 so it is very possible that a WD system could be safely used on your vehicle. You'll have to check the hitch that installed to verify that one can be installed. For a trailer that weighs 3,800 lbs you'd be looking at having a tongue weight of around 380 to 550 lbs most likely. For that the best system we have is the Reese...

  • Is 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Made for 1992 Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon?
  • While I appreciate the line about the lawnmower, even with the motor and transmission you have in your '92 Roadmaster Estate Wagon the only hitch available that fits your vehicle has a 1-1/4" receiver, the Draw-Tite # 36105, and this is a Class II hitch with a maximum trailer weight of 3,500 lbs and maximum tongue weight of 300 lbs. You will need to consult your owner's manual to ensure the maximum amount your vehicle can tow and will be limited by the lowest-rated capacity.

  • Trailer Hitch Fit for 1996 or 1997 Toyota Corolla
  • The Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24921 is not a fit for your Toyota Corolla. It is a fit for 2014-2016 Scion tC models. The tabs even if they were to fit will not allow that hitch to work on your Corolla. To ensure the vehicle model year, you can have your VIN number checked with your local Toyota dealer. For a 1996 or 1997 Toyota Corolla Sedan, the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Class I # 24579 is a confirmed fit. If you have the Corolla wagon, then...

  • Does Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch for 2013 Chevy Equinox Come With Fish Wire Tool?

If you take a look at the linked directions you can see it under "Pull Wire," which is the same thing as the fish wire tool you are referring to.

  • Comparing the EcoHitch # 306-X7266 and Draw-Tite # 76227 for 2018 Subaru Outback
  • The EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7266 mounts almost identically to the Draw-Tite # 76227. They are vey comparable in quality and the trimming of the lower fascia is in the same location. The Draw-Tite hitch is my recommendation based on the towing capacity and tongue weight rating as it is just a stronger hitch even though it is lighter at 35 lbs compared to the EcoHitch at 49 lbs. The Draw-Tite is also more cost friendly.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2005 Nissan Titan

It features a 6,000 pound towing weight capacity, however this is increased to 10,000 pounds when used with a weight distribution system. This is the highest rated hitch available for your truck. You will also want to check the towing capacity of your Titan as listed...

  • The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76031 referenced in your question is confirmed to fit your 2014 Infiniti QX60. I went through the installation steps and found that the 8.8, M12 x 1.25 x 35mm bolts you mentioned are the correct size for your vehicle. The issue you are experiencing with fitting the bolts into the existing holes in your vehicle's frame is actually not too uncommon. Since the frame of the vehicle is constantly exposed to dirt, moisture, and salt, this gunk...

  • How To Carry Bikes on a 2018 Honda CR-V Touring
  • The 2018 Honda CR-V Touring edition has a rear windshield wiper that automatically activates when it is raining and the vehicle is placed in reverse. The rear wiper blade would then damage or become damaged by a trunk mount bike rack. Therefore, I recommend using either a trailer hitch and hitch mounted bike rack or a roof rack and roof mounted bike rack. A hitch mounted bike rack will have be easier to load/unload onto the vehicle and will allow for a much heavier bike to be carried...

The recommended trailer hitch for the 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac is Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13407. Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13540 is recommended for the 2001 Ford Explorer.

The comparable Curt hitch for the 2003 Honda Pilot is # 13328. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you.

Both offer bolt-on no-drill installation and include all required hardware. They share identical capacities and installation but the Curt hitch is USA-made.

So if you are looking for the less expensive hitch that won't require straps I recommend going with the Draw-Tite # 24796 for your Altima sedan. This is a Class I hitch and will require you to use a compatible bike rack. I am not...
