Expert Answers about Hidden Hitch

  • Actual Towing Capacity of 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan without Tow Package
  • The towing capacity of your vehicle is based on a sliding scale, dependent on how many passengers/cargo are in the vehicle. For instance, with a driver, one passenger and their luggage, the capacity is 3600 lbs. For 3 - 5 people and their luggage, the towing capacity decreases to 3350 lbs. For 6 - 7 people and their luggage, the capacity is reduced to 3000 lbs. So, you should be able to tow the camper you're speaking of. However, if you'll be running up and down hills, close to the capacity,...

  • What is the Towing Capacity of a 4 Cylinder 2014 Chevy Equinox
  • I found an online copy of the owners manual for the 2014 Chevy Equinox from Chevy and have the towing information for you. The models with the 2.4 liter motor have a gross trailer weight capacity of 1,000 pounds if the trailer does not have brakes or 1,500 pounds if the trailer does have brakes. The gross combined weight rating, which is the most the vehicle and trailer can weigh when loaded with cargo, fuel, passengers, and any accessories is 5,787 pounds for front wheel drive models...

  • Recommended Hitch with Best Ground Clearance for 2013 Honda Odyssey
  • As you can see by the photo I have edited for you, the Draw-Tite and Curt hitches available for your Odyssey are all pretty similarly designed. When we installed both hitches on a 2013 Odyssey, we found that the Curt # C13068 had about a 1/2 inch greater ground clearance (12-1/2 inches) versus 12 inches for the Draw-Tite # 75270 models. The receiver of the Draw-Tite hitches are recessed a bit more under the vehicle, but neither of the hitches will extend past the bumper, and therefore...

  • Differences Between Available Class III Hitches for 2011 Toyota Sienna
  • The Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite model hitches you referenced would be identical, since Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite are sister companies. Both hitches are identical in looks, share the same capacity and would install in the same manner. The Curt # C13105 has a straight cross tube that bends slightly at each end, while the Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite Hitches have a cross tube that angles rearward from the receiver opening, with no bend. I have provided side by side photos showing the # 87698...

  • Trailer Hitch Comparison for a 2014 Mazda CX-5 Hidden Hitch # 87686 versus Curt # 13127
  • I have provided a link to the hitches that are confirmed as a fit for your vehicle. When comparing the Hidden Hitch Class III trailer hitch # 87686 to the Curt # C13127 Class III they are very similar, and the weight capacities are the same. I have included a photo of the two hitches installed, and yes the Hidden Hitch option is recessed a little bit more under the vehicle than the Curt option. This is likely due to the profile of the hitch, and mounting style. The Hidden Hitch option...

  • Choosing Between Hidden Hitch # 87697 and Curt Class III # C13149 Hitch for 2015 Toyota RAV4
  • The Curt Class III # C13149 and the Hidden Hitch # 87697 are almost identical in appearance (the Hidden Hitch features a mounting flange for a trailer connector). The Draw-Tite has a slightly higher weight capacity, at 4500 lbs towing/ 675 lbs tongue weight capacity, while Curt # C13149 has a 4000 lb towing/525 lb tongue weight capacity. Both would install in a similar manner. Curt states that their # C13149 won't fit the EV model. Hidden Hitch is just a brand name, it doesn't describe...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Hitch for Best Ground Clearance on 2011 Toyota Sienna
  • When we test fit hitches, we take note of above ground height of the inside top of the receiver tube. When the size of the receiver (2 inch or 1-1/4 inch) and the thickness of the lip around the receiver (1/4 inch) is deducted, you get a good approximation of the ground clearance provided by each hitch. See the photo I've edited for you. Using these measurements, the Draw-Tite Class III, part # 75237 would provide you the best ground clearance under the hitch, about 9-3/4 inches. If...

  • 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...

  • Which Trailer Hitch Offers the Most Ground Clearance for a 2008 Toyota Sienna LE
  • The 2008 Toyota Sienna sits low to the ground as it is. Adding any trailer hitch is going to reduce the ground clearance. The hitch that is going to provide the most ground clearance is a Class II hitch from Curt, # C12065. This is only because the receiver and crosstube are smaller (by a fraction of an inch). You may still bottom out on the hitch on inclines like driveways. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. The hitch comes with the correct ball...

  • Differences Between the Class III Hitches 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...

  • 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....

  • Hitch Recommendations for a 2015 Subaru Forester that Go Over Heat Shield
  • Actually both the Curt hitch part # C13144 and the Hidden Hitch part # 87654 that you referenced will go over the heat shield of your 2015 Subaru Forester to install. Check out the picture I attached that shows both hitches in relation to the heat shield. For trailer wiring you would want the part # C56040. For ball mounts I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and a carrying bag.

  • 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...

  • 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 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...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2005 Honda Pilot
  • Both Curt class III trailer hitch, part # 13328 and the Hidden Hitch class III trailer hitch, part # 87454, are quality hitches. But the most popular hitch for your vehicle is the Curt hitch, part # 13328. Installation is relatively easy, even for a beginner. The Curt receiver simply bolts on to the inside of each frame rail. Both hitches require about 40 minutes of installation time. The Curt hitch does use two extra screws to attach the center bumper bracket above the receiver...

  • Class II Hitches Available for 2014 Ford Escape
  • Hidden Hitch offers a very similar hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver, part # 90219. Although the hitch lacks the tab for mounting a trailer connector bracket, it does include a drawbar, which would be useful if you were using the hitch for towing. If you do not need to tow, go with the identical Draw-Tite # 36524, which does not include the drawbar. If you would prefer a Class II hitch that would be less visible at the rear of the vehicle, you might be interested in the # 36529 or the...

  • Will the Hands-Free Liftgate Feature Work With a Trailer Hitch on a 2013 Ford Escape
  • Installing any aftermarket trailer hitch on your 2013 Ford Escape will not completely eliminate the use of your Hands-Free Liftgate feature, but it will limit the sensor areas to either side of the vehicle (see photo). The Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch # 75758 that you referenced will fit all models of the 2013 Ford Escape If you were planning on doing any towing, then you will need a few more items to complete your towing set up. You will need a wiring harness to power the lights...

  • 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...

  • How to Increase Height of Trailer Hitch Ball to Allow Boat Trailer to be Towed Level
  • Ideally a hitched trailer will be level to the ground. We often recommend starting off with the hitch ball being a bit higher - an inch or so - than the top of the coupler on the level trailer since once hitched there will be a degree of squat in the rear of the tow vehicle from the trailer tongue weight. This is perfectly acceptable. You can select a different ball mount for your hitch that gives you additional height (rise) by using the link provided at right. For example, if you want...

This is with 2 people in the van and luggage. With 3 to 5 people and luggage the capacity goes down to 1,350 pounds and 135 pounds tongue weight. And with 6 to 7 people and luggage it goes down to 1,000 pounds gross trailer and 100 pounds tongue weight. I recommend verifying by checking your...

  • 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...

It is in the Specifications section. Other models when properly equipped can handle more weight according to the manual. Since a given hitch will fit all models that is why you see the capacity listed at 3,500 pounds. Even though the hitch is rated that high you still have to go by the capacities of the vehicle as indicated...
