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 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 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 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...

  • Difference between Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite trailer hitch for Chevy Malibu
  • The main difference in the 90132 hitch by Hidden Hitch and the 36317 by Draw-Tite is that the Hidden Hitch model comes with a drawbar, pin and clip. If you will be towing a trailer we recommend the Hidden Hitch trailer hitch. Installation will be the same and towing capacity is the same. You will need a properly sized hitch ball, 19256 or 19258, with both hitches and with the Draw-Tite hitch you will need a drawbar, pin and clip, 36071. You may also need a trailer wiring harness for your...

  • Differences Between the Class III Hitches For the 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan
  • There are three Class III hitches available for the 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan. The Hidden Hitch Class III 2-Inch Hitch, part # 87451, the Draw-Tite Class III 2-Inch Hitch, part # 75579, and the Curt Class III 2-Inch Hitch, part # 13364. The Hidden Hitch and the Draw-Tite are the same hitch made by Reese, just different part numbers. All three of the hitches are a square tube design and will install in the same location on the vehicle. So they will all look the same on the rear of your...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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,...

  • What do the Two Sets of Hitch Weight Capacities Mean, Weight Carry and Weight Distributing
  • The Hidden Hitch 87516 will fit your 2001 GMC Safari. The different weight ratings are provided in the event that a weight distribution system is needed. The hitch, when used with a standard ball mount and ball, has a 5,000 pound gross towing weight with a tongue capacity of 500 pounds. This is called the weight carrying capacity as the hitch is bearing all of the load by itself. A weight distribution system goes into the hitch and uses a set of spring bars to apply tension and spread...

  • Is Bumper Fascia Modification Required to Install Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch on a 2011 GLK-350
  • The Hidden Hitch Class III Trailer Hitch, # 87636, and the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Hitch, # 75774, are designed by the same manufacturer and will require the same installation procedures. Removing or bending of the tabs on the bumper fascia is only necessary if they interfere with the installation of the hitch. There will be two tabs that you will see on the left and right side under the bumper fascia near the exhaust pipes. They may push against the left and right sides of the...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Which Hitch is Better for a 2010 Subaru Forester Hidden Hitch 87493 or Curt Hitch 13147
  • The Curt part # 13147 and Hidden Hitch part 87493 are similar designs as they are built to fit the same vehicles. There are a couple of key differences that may help you in making a decision. Curt uses a high-gloss black finish on their hitches and the Hidden Hitch is not so glossy. If you want a duller finish go with the Hidden Hitch. If you like high-gloss black, use the Curt. Additionaly, in this model, Curt uses round tube for the cross member and Hidden Hitch uses square tube....

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2009 Toyota Highlander that Accommodates 19 Inch Full Size Spare
  • I have a trailer hitch option that will allow you to keep your 19 inch spare under your 2009 Toyota Highlander, but the Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch # 75586 and the Hidden Hitch Class III # 87452 will not fit with your 19 inch spare tire. In order for the full size spare tire to still be able to be stowed under the vehicle, I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Round Tube Receiver # 75726. Installation of this hitch will require removal of the tow hooks and, if present,...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2005 Honda Element
  • The picture you referenced that I attached to the right is a picture we put on all of our Class I hitch product pages to show that only Class I accessories can be used with the hitch. The hitch in the picture is not the # 60985 you are interested in. Since Class I hitches have lower capacities I would recommend you go with the Class III hitch part # 75659. This hitch has a 2 inch opening which would give you better flexibility for hitch accessories. The Kua Sherpa part # S101 would...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid

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.

  • How to Use Bike Rack while Towing a Utility Trailer with a 2003 Dodge Caravan
  • Attaching part # 87717 to your utility trailer would not be a safe way to go. Small utility trailers are not designed to have any weight mounted like that. However we do have a few options for you to accomplish what you are wanting to do. The first would be the Swagman XP Towing Bike Rack, part # S64955. This will allow you to carry three bikes and it will clamp around the ball mount you use for your trailer. This would be the safest and strongest method to use. Remember, the weight...

  • 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...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Jeep Cherokee Latitude

  • What does Fascia Trimming Required Mean and is a Hidden Hitch Hidden
  • Hidden Hitch is the name of one of the hitch manufacturers that we carry. It does not necessarily mean that the hitch is hidden or not visible when installed. On modern vehicles, there is typically a fascia on the rear that covers the rear of a vehicle including the steel tube bumper. On your Element, the black or dark gray part of the back that most call a bumper is the fascia that needs to be trimmed on Element SC models. I have added a link to the instructions below.

  • 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 Roof Rack To Carry Bikes On 2001 Coleman Bayside Elite Popup Camper
  • We do have a solution for you to be able to carry bikes on your Coleman popup camper but we do not have a trailer hitch that will work with your camper. The only bumper mount hitch we offer for a 2 x 4 bumper will not work with a C-channel bumper. I recommend using a Pop-Up Camper Roof Rack like part # SR1020. This rack attaches to the roof of your camper and you can attach crossbar mounted bike carriers. Since it is mounted on the roof of the camper you don't have to worry about ground...

Draw-Tite is connected with Hidden Hitch and has some identical trailer hitch options to the ones you referenced. The Draw-Tite Class III hitch, part # 75560, and the Class II hitch # 36334.

  • Difference Between Draw-Tite Hitch # 24904 and Hidden Hitch # 60330 for 2014 Volkswagen GTI
  • Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch are sister companies so the Draw-Tite Class I Hitch, # 24904, and the Hidden Hitch Class I Hitch, # 60330, for a 2014 Volkswagen GTI, are the same hitch. The only difference between the two items is that the Hidden Hitch receiver comes with a ball mount, pin, and clip. To add a ball mount, pin, and clip to the Draw-Tite hitch, you would use part # 3594.

  • 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.
