Comparison Of Trailer Hitches For 2008 Volvo XC70


Other than price what is difference between Hidden Hitch and DrawTite hitch for a 2008 Volvo xc70?


Expert Reply:

The Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch 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. The Hidden Hitch is no longer available.

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 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If you need trailer wiring for your Volvo I recommend the Curt Custom Wiring, part # C56386. This harness simply plugs into the connection points located behind the tail lights on your vehicle and after running the hot lead wire to the battery, will give you a 4-way trailer connector at the rear of your XC70.

When working with electrical connectors I recommend using dielectric grease like part # 11755. This keeps dirt and moisture out of the electrical connections and helps prevent corrosion.

If you plan on using the trailer hitch for carrying accessories like bike racks or cargo carriers I have attached a couple links to some of the items we offer that may work well for you. If you have any questions about a specific item, just let me know and I will be glad to make some recommendations that will work.
