Expert Answers about Ecohitch

  • Total Weight of EcoHitch and Draw Tite Hitch for 2016 Subaru Forester
  • The total weight of the EcoHitch part # 306-X7216 that you referenced is 53 lbs. The total weight of the Draw Tite hitch part # 76182 you also mentioned is 35 lbs. I know you didn't ask for this, but I can't help but also feel compelled to you that the towing capacity for each is 3,500 lbs total trailer weight... The Draw Tite has a 525 lb tongue weight capacity and the Ecohitch has a 350 lb capacity. So the Draw Tite is lighter, rated higher, and costs less. It would be my...

  • Comparing the Curt # C13206 and the EcoHitch # 306-X7266 for a 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • I take it that you are debating over the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13206 and the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7266 for your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon because the Curt is rated for a higher weight capacity but the EcoHitch has a cleaner look. The thing that you need to remember is that when using your vehicle to tow or carry anything you always have to check the weight of the equipment you are using (trailer hitch) AND the weight rating for your vehicle. Whichever...

  • Hitch Pin Access On EcoHitch Receiver For 2016 Subaru Impreza
  • For your 2016 Subaru Impreza hatchback, the EcoHitch Invisi Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 306-X7211 is the only hitch receiver we carry that fits in the cutout in the bumper. I reached out to the manufacturer and this specific model has a hitch pin that is behind the bumper and accessible from underneath your vehicle. It is a tight fit to allow for that streamlined and sleek look. If you will be towing with either trailer hitch, I recommend the T-One Vehicle...

  • Benefits of Using TorkLift EcoHitch vs Draw-Tite and Curt on 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack
  • The trailer hitch options for your 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack can be seen on the linked page. 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...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver to Fit a 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "direct fit" because all three of the Class III trailer hitch receivers we carry for your 2014 Subaru Outback are custom made and designed for your vehicle. 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. Take a look at the picture I attached. The downside to this hitch is the install requries the bumper to be temporarily...

  • 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...

  • EcoHitch Trailer Hitch for 2018 Toyota RAV4
  • I have linked the installation instructions of the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch # 306-X7219 that fits your 2018 Toyota RAV4 for you to check out so you can make up your own mind on if they are good or not because the quality of directions is a pretty subjective thing. The EcoHich isn't necessarily made of better corrosion-resistant materials than something like the Draw-Tite # 76134, it simply states it has a black powder coat finish that offers protection against corrosion, though...

  • How to Mount a Bike Rack on a 2018 Tesla Model 3
  • The Curt and Draw-Tite trailer hitch receivers are often rated much higher than the vehicle is capable of handling so they are a bit misleading whereas the EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 306-X7373 which is a fit for your 2018 Tesla Model 3 has a more accurate representation In order to make sure you will be safe carrying your bike rack and three bikes on the back on your Model 3 you will want to take a look in your owner's manual for the vehicle's tongue weight capacity...

  • Concealed and Visible Trailer Hitch Options for 2018 Subaru Crosstrek
  • For your 2018 Subaru Crosstrek we offer several hitch options, all shown on the linked page, that include both 1-1/4-inch Class II and 2-inch Class III types. We generally always recommend the 2-inch option when it is available since these hitches typically offer a higher weight capacity for towing and much broader compatibility with the range of available accessory items like bike racks and cargo baskets. Also among the hitch options are products that have a completely hidden crosstube,...

  • Hitch, Wiring Harness and Towing Mirrors for 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • Thank you for coming back to etrailer for a hitch and wiring for your new Subaru Outback Wagon! The hitch I recommend for your new Outback is our own USA-made 2-inch model # e98847. I like this option for its value and easier installation. The hitch you referenced in your question, EcoHitch # 306-X7601, costs more and will be much tougher to install. Unless you're really concerned about the hitch being well hidden I would stick with the etrailer hitch. It also has a much higher weight...

  • Does Installing EcoHitch in 2018 Subaru Outback Affect Back Up Sensors
  • I attached a picture of the Ecohitch part # 306-X7266 installed by us and you can see the back up sensor on the far end of the bumper. It wasn't a problem for us at all. Removing the foam wasn't an issue either. For the money though I would go with the Draw Tite part # 75673.

  • Will an Aftermarket Trailer Hitch Fit the Same Cutout of OEM Trailer Hitch on a 2015 Subaru Forester
  • If you check out the attached photos of the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7216 and the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76182 you can see that they sit in relatively the same place. I went out to the warehouse and found that the from the center of the hitch pin hole on both hitches measured very similar in regards to where the rearmost mounting hole location is on the mounting brackets. In the installation video for the EcoHitch you can see that from the center...

  • Comparing EcoHitch and Draw Tite Hitch for 2018 Toyota RAV4
  • The Draw Tite hitch part # 76134 and EcoHitch part # 306-X7219 are both a confirmed fit for your 2018 Toyota RAV4 and will provide a trailer hitch that has a concealed crosstube making it less visible than most hitches overall. 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 best hitch option for your 2018 Subaru WRX is the EcoHitch Invisi Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7257.

  • What Curt Trailer Hitches Fit a 2019 Subaru Crosstrek
  • Both the Curt trailer hitches # C12184 and # C13382 are confirmed to fit your 2019 Subaru Crosstrek. I recommend going with the latter part # C13382 as it is a Class III trailer hitch with a 2" receiver. This will allow you to use a wider variety of accessories. I have attached an installation video of this hitch on a 2018 Crosstrek for you to reference.

  • 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...

  • Recommended Hitch for 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV for Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier
  • You are correct that your 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV is not rated to tow a trailer. Most electric vehicles are not. But we do have hitches that will allow you to safely and securely transport two bikes and also to use a hitch-mount cargo carrier to haul your husband's weekend camping gear. The hitches made for your Bolt EV are shown on the linked page.

  • Best Hitch Recommendations for 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • For your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon the Class III hitch I would recommend is the EcoHitch part # 306-X7266 as the overall winner. It has the higher Class III towing capacities, doesn't require the stabilizer strap when carrying a bike rack like the Curt, but also because it only has the hitch opening that hangs down below the bumper so it's the least visible. It is the most expensive though so the next best option is the Draw Tite part # 75673 which is still a great hitch but it has a visible...

  • The only thing you will need to install the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 306-X7267 on your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon is basic tools like sockets and wrenches.
