Rugged, Matte Black Finish

The sturdy steel construction is protected with a matte black finish for added durability. This unique powder coating gives etrailer hitches a carbide-like appearance and a rugged look that sets them apart from traditional glossy hitches. In addition to being rust and corrosion resistant, the tough matte coating hides dirt, scuffs, and dings better than a glossy finish.

Nissan Pathfinder

I purchased this hitch for a trip out west, the order was processed and shipped to my house in a week. Worked great, i will be using it for the remainder of my car’s life. The only drawback was that the supplied bolts weren’t the same thread as my Nissan Pathfinder. I ended up removing the stock tow hitch (no longer needed) and used the bolts from that, the purchased the remaining bolts from the dealership.


This is the second hitch I have purchased from etrailer, both purchases were shipped in a very timely manner. Even though I have not installed this hitch yet, my experience with the first one was very positive. I would highly recommend etrailer for all your towing needs.


Everything to spec. Durable and easy to install. Instructions were clear and accurate. Able to install with one person.


Fits perfectly! I have a 2018 Pathfinder and this hitch is the perfect fit. Uploaded some pics for reference. I did NOT need to trim any part of my vehicle. Installation on the video appears much easier than real life (assuming you have the tools). The hitch is heavy, especially when you are operating from the ground and cannot put your vehicle on a lift. After some frustration, I took it to pep boys, they installed for $80. Package arrived on time and in great condition. I primarily bought this so I can attach bike rack, but may use it for a trailer in the future.


No complaints!

2018 Nissan Pathfinder

Hitch looks very will built.Boxes was damaged when it came and was missing the mounting hardware. Etrailer quickly resolved my issue. Very excellent customer service.

2018 Nissan Pathfinder

Very easy install, quality product!



Still great with a nice sleek look. I’ve used on multiple occasions and the bolts have remained tight with no loosening.

2018 Nissan Pathfinder

Best price, perfect fit, fast delivery. It doesn't get any better.


Installation went well, pretty easy just follow all instructions


My item was packaged correctly and item was just what I expected, the hitch assembly was so easy. Was over all very pleased.


Perfect fit



Perfect fit Very happy Thank you


I just had it installed today. It fit perfectly and is good quality. I noticed it is cheaper on your website today. I wished I would have gotten that price.


Easy to install, did it by myself, lying on the ground. Very well built. Extremely happy.


Why would you sell a product that requires you to cut the bumper and remove the spare tire. Then charge me to ship it back. Garbage product and similar customer service

Typically the installation of the hitch is determined by the vehicle the hitch was designed for. We always list the technical details as tech tips if fascia trimming is required. For a 2017 Nissan Pathfinder most of the hitches install the same however there is part # 76031 which does not require as much trimming as the other hitches nor lowering the spare time.

2019 Nissan Pathfinder

Works great easy to install



Still working with no problems

2018 Nissan Pathfinder

Shipping was fast! Looks exactly as shown on the website and the installation video was spot on. I gave it a 4 star because I haven't used the hitch to pull anything yet. So far I am very pleased. Thank you etrailer!


Fit perfectly.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder

Definitely need two people to install, but it took about 30 min for my friend and I to get it installed.


Fit perfectly on our suv, I would suggest next time to have the bults, narrow on the tip so that it can be easy to screw on a rusted car. We figured it out tho and happy with the product


Look great


Easy to install, put on by Auto Tech class in the high school I work in with no difficulty. Instructional video was VERY helpful for installation.

Jennifer T.


Product is still great! Have been hauling a dirt bike back and forth from VA to FL about 6 times now, no problems!


Very pleased with the trailer hitch and the wiring kit works great installed it in just a couple hours, no problem's


I love it! I put it on and it was easy to install. I am a 52 yr old woman and the installation was a breeze!! I have pulled a horse trailer and a 15ft utility trailer with it.


again fairly easy to install did need a little help lineing up bolt


Great product. Easy to install and easy to hitch by bike rack to.

  • Comparison of 2018 Nissan Pathfinder Trailer Hitches
    For your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder, the hitch manufacturers have all specified the same weight capacities. Curt # C13309, Draw-Tite # 76031, and etrailer # e98908 all have 900 lb tongue weight and 6,000 lbs towing capacity. I recommend the least expensive options at the time of purchase because they all are great quality hitches with the biggest difference between them being the etrailer hitch has a flat/matte black finish versus the high gloss black of the other two.

  • Can I Carry Motorcycle With a Hitch Carrier on My Nissan Pathfinder
    I looked up the owner's manual for your 2020 Nissan Pathfinder and it gives all of the specifications and how to check for proper loading, and weight capacities, you can find it on page 10-17 - 10-22. The maximum tongue weight for your Pathfinder is 600 lbs, which is 10% of the max towing capacity 6000 lbs. So unfortunately since the total weight is over 600 lbs, I cannot recommend it, if you can shave 21 lbs off the carrier or the bike it would be within the manufacturers limit. I think...

  • Recommended Hitch w/ No Fascia Trimming for a 2018 Nissan Pathfinder
    Yes, there is one hitch that does not require trimming of your Pathfinder's fascia. It does require trimming a tiny portion of the carbon canister shield underneath your vehicle. You will want the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch item # 76031. This hitch is custom fit for your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder and bolts to the frame with included hardware. I have linked an installation video below along with the instructions. Step 2 will show you the little cut you have to make. If you ever plan on towing...

  • Are Relays Required When Installing T-One Wiring Harness on 2019 Nissan Pathfinder
    I know it seems like there are extra steps to take for installing the T-One # 118273 on your 2019 Nissan Pathfinder but it all just boils down to this; without those relays installed the T-One won't receive any power. Basically these act as fuses so without a fuse the circuit is dead. I'm not sure why Nissan decided to locate the plug in the rear hatch area but that's where it sits on your Pathfinder. If you had the factory tow package you'd be able to go to that same location and see a...

  • Replacement Hitch Hardware for 2017 Nissan Pathfinder with etrailer Hitch
    The bolts to install a hitch on a 2017 Nissan Pathfinder are M12-1.25 x 30mm. You can order the correct hitch mounting hardware kit for your hitch with part number # RHK. When you navigate to that part's page, you'll simply put the model number of the hitch you're looking for the hardware for in the field marked "Hitch Item Number". It looks like you might have the etrailer # e98908 hitch on your 2017 Pathfinder, so you'd just put that number into the field and you would receive the mounting...

  • Will Trailer Hitch Receiver e98908 Fit 2019 Nissan Pathfinder SV
    Yes, the Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98908 is confirmed to fit your 2019 Nissan Pathfinder SV. There isn't a fit exclusion for the SV trim on your Pathfinder so it's going to work perfectly. This custom Class III hitch will line up to existing holes in the vehicle's frame rails for a simple bolt-on (no-drill) installation and it features a sleek hidden design that allows only the 2" receiver to be visible from the rear. I really like this style, especially on newer vehicles...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for Towing with a 2019 Nissan Pathfinder
    I recommend using the Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98908 for your 2019 Nissan Pathfinder because it is a Class III trailer hitch with a 2" receiver, a hidden crosstube, and a matte black finish that does a better job at hiding scratches and dings from road debris than the glossy black finish that most other trailer hitches have. Then for wiring I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118273 which comes with a 7-Way connector and all of the relays you need to activate...

  • What Economical Platform Bike Rack Converts from 4-Bikes to 2-Bikes for My Nissan Pathfinder?
    If you are looking for a great economic option for a platform carrier that can convert from a 4-bike rack to a 2-bike rack, I recommend the Curt 4 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount - Tilting # C18087. The Curt 4 has a 45 pound per-bike weight capacity and includes sliding wheel hoops that accommodate bikes of different lengths. In addition, the Curt 4 has integrated locks that secure your bikes to the rack. If you need a hitch recommendation that is compatible with the Curt...

  • Parts Needed to Tow a Trailer with a 2020 Nissan Pathfinder
    In order to tow a trailer with a 2020 Nissan Pathfinder you'll need at the very least a trailer hitch, wiring harness, and ball mount/hitch ball. If the trailer has brakes, you'll also need a trailer brake controller. I'd also probably recommend a set of towing mirrors to help with visibility as well. I have attached for you below a full list of these parts. etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98908 T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness part # 118670 T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness part # 118273...

    Yes, there is fascia trimming required to install the etrailer item # e98908 hitch on your 2019 Nissan Pathfinder. I have linked a video of the installation being done on a 2018 Pathfinder we had in the shop over the summer. If you skip ahead to the 6:40 mark you will see the cut that needs to be made. As far as installation goes you should also watch the video to see if it is something you would feel comfortable and capable of doing yourself. This hitch has a 5 out of 10 rating on our...

  • How To Mount a 7-Way On the etrailer Hitch Receiver for a 2019 Nissan Pathfinder
    The Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98908 which is a fit for a 2019 Nissan Pathfinder does not have any sort of integrated trailer connector mounting bracket nor is there a similar option for the Pathfinder with this feature. However, you can use the Curt Easy Mount Bracket for 4- or 5-Way Flat and 6- or 7-Way Trailer Connectors part # C58000 which will provide an easy to access spot to mount the trailer connector. That said, the options are limited for trailer connector mounting...

    Yes, the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98908 is a confirmed fit for your 2020 Nissan Pathfinder SV. It will also fit models S, SL, and Platinum as well. This hitch is a simple no-drill bolt-on installation that requires no welding. The matte black powder coat finish over protective base coat offers superior rust resistance. It has a maximum gross trailer weight capacity of 6,000lbs and maximum tongue weight capacity of 900lbs. Note: this does not increase the capacity of your vehicle...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver and Vehicle Wiring Harness For Trailer Towing With a 2019 Nissan Pathfinder
    When we installed the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98908 on a 2017 Nissan Pathfinder in our shop we ended up with a receiver height of 13" to the inside top of the receiver tube. As all trailers will be different heights for the coupler you will want to measure the coupler height of your trailer to determine the most appropriate ball mount for your 2019 Nissan Pathfinder. I recommend the Rapid Hitch Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount Kit # AM3462 if you are unsure of what trailers...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness for a 2019 Nissan Pathfinder
    The trailer hitch that I recommend for a 2019 Nissan Pathfinder is the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98908 because it features an easy bolt-on install and has a hidden design so you don't have to look at a bulky crosstube on the back of the vehicle. It also makes for the best ground clearance. In regards to the writing, it sounds like you are describing a round 7-blade. For this, I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness part # 118273 as your best option and all you'll need...

  • Comparing etrailer Class III and Draw-Tite Class IV Trailer Hitches for a 2017 Nissan Pathfinder
    The main difference between the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98908 and Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76031 aside from their class rating is appearance. The etrailer has a hidden crosstube design and the Draw-Tite has a visible crosstube design. Therefore, I recommend the etrailer due to the better overall appearance which you can see in the photo below. Please note, the hitches are both rated for more than the vehicle can handle so your actual rating (listed...

  • Comparing Curt and Hitch for 2018 Nissan Pathfinder
    Curt actually makes the hitches like the part # e98908 that you referenced which is why it's basically identical to the Curt # C13309 that fits your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder. It is a somewhat new hitch line we started offering but not brand new. This means that the install video for the Curt (attached to this page) would cover the install of the # e98908 as well. The hands free liftgate of your Pathfinder will still work but you just would have to kick your foot to either side...

  • Will Installing the etrailer Hitch for 2017 Nissan Pathfinder Require Any Trimming of Fascia
    I have a solution for you that doesn't require any trimming of the fascia, but the etrailer Custom Fit Hitch # e98908 will likely require some trimming of the fascia during installation. However, the Draw-Tite # 76031 sits a bit lower and does not require any trimming of that fascia during installation and would be my recommendation if you're not wanting to cut anything. I've linked the installation video we did of this hitch for you to check out, and have also linked our entire selection...
