Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2018 VW Atlas


Recommended Trailer hitch for 2018 VW Atlas


Expert Reply:

For your 2018 VW Atlas, we have two trailer hitch receivers available. We have a Class II 1-1/4 inch option from Draw-Tite and a Curt Class III 2 Inch receiver.

I always recommend a Class III receiver over a Class II because of all of the options for accessories like bike racks and cargo carriers in addition to ball mount options. Not to mention they are just a sturdier and stronger design. Although some people like the smaller hitch receiver opening for a less noticeable hitch.

Here are both options that are confirmed custom fits:
Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13366
Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class II - 1-1/4" # 36635

For trailer wiring, I recommend the Upgraded Heavy Duty ModuLite Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness with Install Kit # 119190KIT which will require hardwiring but is easy with the quick splice connectors. This wiring harness draws power from the battery to protect the factory wiring system from overload. I've attached an article to assist in running this power wire to the battery.
