Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Toyota Corolla


I have a 2104 corolla LE, can I install the curt trailer hitch receiver Class III 2inch # C13149? or does it need to be the 1 1/4inch ? Thanks

For your 2014 Toyota Corolla there are only Class I hitches that have 1-1/4 inch hitch openings available like the Draw Tite part # 24913. 2 inch hitches like the part # C13149 that you referenced are designed for larger vehicles with higher towing capacities like trucks and SUV's. This hitch is for new Rav4s actually.

I like the Draw Tite hitch over the Curt for your vehicle as it does not require a stabilizer strap part # 18050 when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack.

The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Roadway 2 part # TH912XTR. We asked our demo and install guys to name their favorite, most easy-to-use bike racks and this one showed up in nearly everyone's top three. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes to be carried more level and will provide more ground clearance.
