  • Comparing Draw-Tite and Curt Trailer Hitches for 2019 Ford Ranger
  • The Draw-Tite and Curt trailer hitches that fit your 2019 Ford Ranger are very similar, with the biggest difference being their respective capacities.

The Curt Trailer Hitch # C13417 has a towing capacity of 6,000 lbs and a tongue weight capacity of 900 lbs.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Comparing Draw-Tite, Curt, and EcoHitch Trailer Hitches for 2017 Subaru Outback
  • That is an excellent question, and I believe you were referring to the three trailer hitches for your 2017 Subaru Outback that have concealed cross tubes, the Curt # C13410, Draw-Tite # 76227 and EcoHitch # 306-X7266. 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2019 Toyota Sienna for Ground Clearance

When we test fit the Draw-Tite Hitch # 76112, Curt Hitch # C13343, etrailer.com Hitch # E98853 and EcoHitch # 306-X7255 on a 2019 Toyota Sienna we found that each of them have 13 inches of ground clearance, and with the exception of the EcoHitch, have a 525 lb tongue weight capacity...

  • 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 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

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...

  • 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 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...

  • 2019 Honda CRV Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation
  • First let's start with the hitch for your 2019 Honda CR-V... for that the etrailer hitch part # E98848 is the way to go as it has a concealed crosstube which means it will be mostly out of plainsight. 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. For trailer wiring you'd then want the Tekonsha kit part # 118741 as it installs very easily. The ZCI kit is great but it requires you to test the wiring...

  • Differences Between Curt, Draw-Tite, and etrailer Trailer Hitches for a 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • The differences that you noted are really the only difference between the Curt # C13206 and the Draw-Tite # 75673 trailer hitches for your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon. The Curt has the round tube style but does require the support strap # 18050 for all non-trailer loads (like your bike rack) while the Draw-Tite has a square tube style and doesn't require the use of the strap.

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2019 Honda Odyssey with the Best Ground Clearance

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...

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.

  • Required Fascia Cutting When Installing EcoHitch Trailer Hitch on 2019 Tesla Model 3
  • The installation instructions for the EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7373 call for either a 3-1/2 inch or 4 inch hole saw. The advantage for the larger 4 inch hole is just more hand clearance to allow for easier mounting when inserting the receiver. I honestly just recommend going with the smallest possible hole (3-1/2 inches) as I'm sure you aren't overly enthused to cut into your Tesla's bumper fascia. It does not matter which hole size you use with regards to installing...

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.

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...

As for the differences, there are very few, and the installation of either hitch will have some small impact on ground clearance.

This will give you a gross trailer weight of 8,000 lbs when used with weight distribution, so a weight distribution system would be required.

Of the two I recommend the Draw-Tite because of its 600 lb tongue weight capacity, which is superior to the 525 lb capacity of the EcoHitch, and because of Draw-Tite's long-standing reputation for making high-quality trailer hitches.

The other option you'd have is the Draw Tite part # 76271 which does not require trimming, but does require fascia removal and reinstallation.

They do look a little different because the Draw-Tite has a square cross tube and the Curt's is round but this won't change the functionality at all. The biggest difference for me is that the Curt needs a support strap if you're using it for anything other than trailering. So if you're carrying a bike rack, cargo...

  • How To Use a 2 Inch Bike Rack On a 2014 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI
  • For starters, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver w/ Euro Drawbar part # C114122 is not a fit for your 2014 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI. The comparable option we have is Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24866. However, you cannot use a class I 1-1/4" trailer hitch with a 1-1/4" to 2" adapter like part # MT70032 because all of the adapters require a class II hitch with a 1-1/4" opening.

  • 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...

  • Recommendation for Trailer Hitch Receiver from Comparison for 2019 Honda Odyssey
  • The 2 inch hitch options for your 2019 Honda Odyssey are similar and yet different. The Draw-Tite # 76171, etrailer.com # e98855, and Curt # C13370 all have an exposed crosstube but are far easier to install. The EcoHitch # 306-X7372 and the Draw-Tite # 76170 both have the hidden crosstube for better ground clearance but they will require more time and energy to install. Based on the capacities and design of the hitch, I recommend the Draw-Tite # 76170. This will work well for...

There is no need to worry though about rust or corrosion in that area because the mounting brackets for the hitch will essentially be taking their place.

  • Why Does Curt Require Stabilizing Straps for Hitch-Mounted Bike Racks but Draw-Tite Does Not
  • The stabilizing straps are a warranty requirement that Curt recommends to help support the hitch. The strap reduces some of the tongue weight load on the hitch, reduces the tendency for attached items to move around while the vehicle is in motion, and prevents some vertical shock from being transferred to the hitch when going over bumps. Using a strap such as Item # 18050 with a Curt hitch will maintain the warranty and provide additional support. I've attached a review video that shows...
