Expert Answers about Hidden Hitch

  • Will a Receiver Hitch Work on an I-Beam Frame on My 5th Wheel Trailer
  • I do not believe the 82201 Multi-Fit Motor Home Hitch is the best option for your I-beam frame. We have an adjustable width trailer hitch for the RV, part number 13703, that would most likely work better. With this hitch you would be able to install the brackets on the inside of the I-beam and would have 6 bolts holding it in place providing a much larger mounting surface than the other hitch. The distance from the bend in the mounting plates where it sits on the I-beam to the top of...

  • What is the Towing Capacity of a 2010 Dodge Journey SXT with Trailer Hitch # 87487 Installed
  • If Dodge has rated your 2010 Journey for 3,500 pounds gross trailer weight, that is the maximum the vehicle can tow, even if a trailer hitch is rated higher. The limiting factor is the component with the lowest capacity, which is the rating you need to go by. Adding weight distribution will not increase the towing capacity of the vehicle. The towing capacity of the vehicle remains static at 3,500 pounds. To complete your towing setup you may need the following: Ball Mount Kit, part...

  • What Towing Package Is Available For 2008 Toyota Highlander
  • You will want to check your owners manual or with the Toyota dealer for the gross towing weight capacity of your 2008 Toyota Highlander to make sure the towing capacity is not exceeded. Even if the hitch will have a higher weight capacity than your vehicles gross towing weight capacity the towing capacity is determined by the lowest weight capacity in your whole towing setup. The Hidden Hitch Class III 2 Inch Hitch, # 87452, that you have referenced is a good choice for your 2008 Toyota...

  • Trailer Hitch Installation Difficulty on a 2014 Jeep Cherokee Latitude
  • Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 87648 is indeed a fit for all models of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee excluding Trailhawk models so it will fit your Latitude. Trailer hitch installation is something that you can do at home but I do recommend having an assistant because hitches are heavy and getting them in the right place and tightening hardware at the same time is difficult for one person to do alone. All 2014 Jeep Cherokees will have the holes for the hitch already in the frame. You will not...

  • Recommended Receiver Hitch for 2012 Nissan Murano
  • As long as the towing capacity of the vehicle is not exceeded and the hitch is installed properly, according to the hitch manufacturers instructions, there should be no adverse warranty implications from installing a hitch. The # 87486 Class III hitch you mentioned is manufactured by Hidden Hitch, a very respected hitch manufacturer. I have provided you with a side-by-side photo showing both the Curt # 13577 and the Hidden Hitch model installed on a 2012 Murano. As you can see in the...

  • Trailer Hitch to Carry a Generator on the Back of a Travel Trailer
  • For a cargo carrier holding a generator at the back of a travel trailer I definitely recommend installing a frame mounted trailer hitch. It is unlikely that a bumper will be rated high enough to carry the generator and carrier and be able to withstand the stresses involved. If your trailer has a frame that measures 31 inches to 46 inches wide, I recommend installing hitch # 82200. I have included a link to the installation details and I recommend having the hitch professionally installed....

  • Recommended Bike Rack Style for a 2010 Ford Escape
  • There are many options in bike racks for your 2010 Ford Escape. Your choice depends on how many bikes you are wanting to carry and the weight of the bikes. For your vehicle, the best would be either a hitch bike rack or a trunk mounted bike rack. The roof bike rack for your Ford Escape is not the best choice, because it requires lifting the bike to the roof of the vehicle. The hitch bike rack is a excellent choice, but it does require you have a trailer hitch on the back of your vehicle...

  • Trailer Towing Capacity of 2005 Chrysler Town & Country Touring Edition
  • I have done some research, and have found that the tow capacity of your 2005 Chrysler Town & Country is 3700 lbs. You will want to check in your owners manual to confirm the towing capacity. Also, it is important to remember that your towing capacity is limited by the lowest rated component in the towing system, including: vehicle, hitch, ball mount, hitch ball or the capacity of your trailer. To complete your towing system, you might be interested in the following: Trailer wiring...

  • How Far Below the Bottom Edge of Bumper Fascia Do Hitches For 2013 Volvo XC60 Extend
  • The Hidden Hitch # 87566, Draw-Tite # 75671 and Curt # 13268 Class III hitches all feature a durable powder coated finish. As you can see in the accompanying photo I provided, both hitches will have about a 1 inch reveal below the bottom edge of the bumper fascia. Keep in mind that if your XC60 is the R Design model, some fascia trimming might be needed. All three hitches would install in the same manner, and share identical weight capacities. I'd recommend the Curt # 13268 as it's the...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for Pulling a Pop Up Camper with a 2011 Toyota Rav4 with Rear Spare Tire
  • The standard ball mount that is recommended for the 2011 RAV4 has a 2 inch drop and a 3/4 inch rise and in most cases the # 80232 ball mount will be correct, but this does not mean that it will be the correct ball mount height for towing your trailer. The height of your trailer coupler and the height of the top of the receiver opening on your RAV4, when parked on a fairly level surface with the trailer frame level, will be needed to determine the correct ball mount drop or rise that...

  • Recommended Hitch & Cargo Carrier Options for 2016 Toyota Highlander
  • We can help you with a hitch and hitch-mounted cargo carrier that will give you access to the rear of the Highlander. For a hitch I suggest the Hidden Hitch round tube Class III hitch # 87660. This hitch offers no-drill installation and allows a full-size spare tire to remain installed. It has the same capacity as others but costs a bit less. It also fits hybrid models. You can refer to the linked installation instructions and video to see the whole process. Your best choice of carrier...

  • Transmission Cooler and Towing Accessories for Towing 3000 lb Trailer with 2011 Ford Escape
  • According to my research, the 2011 Escape has a tow rating between 1500-3500 lbs, depending on how the vehicle was equipped. You can call your Ford dealer with the VIN number, and they should be able to tell you the tow rating of you vehicle as it is equipped. If you should find that the actual tow capacity of your Escape is exceeded by the weight of the trailer, you will either want to get a trailer whose weight falls within the tow capacity of the Escape or use a different vehicle to...

  • Trailer Hitch and 4 Bike Rack Recommendation for 2012 Nissan Rogue
  • First let's start with a hitch. The most popular Class III hitch we carry with other 2012 Nissan Rogue owners is the Curt Hitch part # C13204. I attached an install video for you to check out. Now for a 4 bike rack that would accommodate all of your bikes well I would recommend the Thule Vertex part # TH9029XT. This rack has plenty of room between frame cradles on arced arms to allow for easy loading and unloading. Also features a tilting mast, anti-rattle hitch pin and anti-sway cradles....

  • Difference in Hidden Hitch # 87438, and DrawTite Hitch # 75531 For 2012 Mazda CX-9
  • The Hidden Hitch Class III 2 Inch Hitch, part # 87438, and the DrawTite Class III 2 Inch Hitch, part # 75531, for the 2012 Mazda CX-9 are the same hitch. The manufacturer of both of these hitches is the same. I am including a link to the installation instructions that will show the part numbers for both of these hitches in the top right corner of the same instructions page. In this particular case there is no discernible difference in the two hitches, except the stickers on the hitch. If...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2012 Ford Escape
  • We do offer several hitches that are confirmed to fit your 2012 Ford Escape. Of all the hitches we offer I recommend the Hidden Hitch, part # 87626. This hitch is a Class lll hitch with a 2 inch receiver opening. When I checked out the photos of the hitches we offer that fit your Escape, it appears this hitch may be the least conspicuous. Due to the design of the vehicles it is many times difficult to find a hitch that is really concealed. I have attached a photo of this hitch mounted...

  • Trailer Hitch Comparison and Warranty Issues When Towing with a 2010 Honda CR-V
  • The Hidden Hitch, # 87440, Draw-Tite, item # 75547, and Curt, item # 13555, Class III hitches available for the 2010 Honda CR-V have minimal differences. Subtle design differences and manufacturing differences are the only differences. In reality the hitches are all rated for 3,500 pounds of gross trailer weight and 350 pounds of tongue weight and will perform pretty much exactly alike when towing. The receiver portion of the hitch will be in the same spot just below the center of the rear...

  • Can Fascia Door of 2011 GMC Terrain Be Reinstalled Once Hitch is Installed
  • All of the Class III receivers available for your 2012 Terrain are similar in the way they would sit in relation to the rear bumper of the vehicle. The primary difference between the Curt # 13591 and the Draw-Tite # 76028 is that the Draw-Tite model uses two additional connection points into the bottom of the frame member. Although both hitches share the same weight rating, having extra connection points to the vehicle frame is desirable. I would recommend the Draw-Tite Class III receiver,...

  • Can Longer Hidden Hitch Ball Mount be Used to Increase Distance Between Trailer and Tow Vehicle
  • Yes, longer ball mounts like the part # 80232 that you referenced are designed to do exactly what you described. They add length to the distance between the hitch and the trailer. As long as you stay under the capacity of this ball mount you would be fine. This ball mount has a 6,000 lb capacity with a 600 lb tongue weight capacity.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid
  • I would recommend the Curt Class III Receiver Hitch, part # 13650. It has a 2 inch receiver opening and a 3,500 lb towing capacity. You can view the install details and see an install video by clicking the provided links. Since your Escape has the back up sensors, you would need to use part # 118551.

  • Maximum Tongue Weight Capacity of 2015 Nissan Rogue with Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • According to the information that I was able to obtain from an online owner's manual, the 2015 Nissan Rogue is going to have a tongue weight capacity of 110 lbs. Even though a hitch like the Hidden Hitch, # HH87663, offers a tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs, you will be bound by the component with the lesser rating which would be the Rogue.

  • How Visible are the Available Hitches for the 2014 Toyota Corolla
  • Honestly, all of the hitches that are available for your 2014 Toyota Corolla will be just as visible as the next. The round crosstube of the hitch and the hitch opening will be visible but out of plain sight. The reason the Hidden Hitch part # 60345 costs more than the other hitches is because it comes with a ball mount and a pin and clip. If you don't plan on doing any towing and only plan on carrying bike racks then this would not be the best option for you. The Draw Tite #...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Jeep Cherokee Latitude
  • I have a hitch option for your 2014 Jeep Cherokee Latitude, but the Hidden Hitch part # 87650 that you referenced is only for the Trailhawk model Cherokees. You would want the Hidden Hitch part # 87648, this hitch will fit all the model Cherokees aside from the Trailhawk.

  • Comparison Of Trailer Hitches For 2008 Volvo XC70
  • The Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch, part # 87674 and Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 75916 are made by the same parent company so they are really constructed the same. They are Class lll hitches and have 2 inch receiver openings, and will work well with your XC70. For my money, I recommend the Hidden Hitch because of the price difference. If you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or...

  • Best Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Mazda 3
  • The most popular hitch we offer for the 2014 Mazda 3 is the Curt hitch part # C11377. This is a great hitch that I would highly recommend for you. This has a ton of positive reviews from our customers who have tried it so it should work well. To give you an idea on what the ground clearance would be I attached a picture for you to check out that shows the hitch installed.

  • Comparison Between Available Class III Trailer Hitches for 2015 Jeep Renegade
  • Both hitches you mentioned, the Hidden Hitch # 87681 and the Curt # C13269 have identical weight capacities. The Hidden Hitch will require drilling a 1 inch access hole, unless the vehicle has the factory tow hooks. The Curt Hitch won't require drilling, but you'll need to use a rotary tool like a Dremel to enlarge the frame member access holes so the installation hardware can be fished through. I'll link you to some FAQ articles that explain this process fully. If the Curt hitch...

  • Will the Kuat Transfer 3 Bike Carrier Fit a 2015 Volvo V60 with Class III Trailer Hitch Installed
  • If you take a look at the diagram I have included you will see that the receiver is recessed under the vehicle a little when hitch # 87674 is installed on a 2015 Volvo V60, maybe 6 inches from the back of the rear bumper to the center of the hitch pin hole. On the Kuat Transfer 3, # TS03G, it measures 7-1/2 inches from the center of the pin hole back to the pivot bracket when in the down position but just 5 inches to the closest part of the carrier when folded up. So it will not fit...

  • Both the Hidden Hitch Class I Receiver Hitch, # 60218, and the Draw-Tite Class I Sport Frame Receiver Hitch, # 24826, are quality products that would work for your 2009 Honda Fit. Both hitches are rated at Class I and have the 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. The towing capacity of both hitches is 2000 lbs and the tongue weight capacity for both is at 200 lbs. The Hidden Hitch and the Draw-Tite trailer hitches are made custom-fit to install into existing holes in your Honda' s frame. This...

  • Why Does Curt Recommend a Stabilizer Strap But Hidden Hitch Does Not
  • Curt recommends the stabilizer strap with non-supported loads like bike racks to help support the hitch when going over bumps to prevent some of the vertical shock from being transferred to the hitch. Curt does this as a precaution, it's not that Draw Tite or Hidden Hitch are stronger. Both hitch brands make outstanding hitches that are typically stronger than what they are rated for. I would say that Curt just happens to approach the idea of a bike rack/cargo carrier being used in a...

Another hitch to consider is the Curt Hitch part # C13701 that will fit 18 to 51 inch frame widths and has a 500 lb tongue weight capacity and 6,000 lb total trailer weight capacity.
