Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan


Hi there, I have a 2016 VW TIguan and I need to tow a trailer not sure what size yet. is the right hitch. What else do I need? Thanks!


Expert Reply:

For your Volkswagen Tiguan I would recommend the Draw Tite hitch part # 75658 which is a confirmed fit. This is a 2 inch hitch which is preferred over the 1-1/4 inch hitch size for a couple reasons. This size will have higher towing capacities and have more accessories made for it. I attached an install video for the hitch for you to check out as well.

For trailer wiring you then would want the # 118675 which is a confirmed fit.

Since you wanted to do 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 the ball mount kit does not include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.
