Trailer Towing Setup Recommendation for 2014 Buick Enclave

Question:

I have a 2014 Buick Enclave and want to make sure that I have all of the parts I need for a new hitch set up. #75528 DrawTite Hitch. #118270 Wire Harness. #C45036 2inch Mount with Ball. #18144 Mount Bracket. Am I missing anything? What would the total cost be? Thanks,

You are on the right track!

The Draw Tite hitch part # 75528 is a confirmed fit for your 2014 Buick Enclave as well as the trailer wiring kit # 118270. The wiring mount part # 18144 will also give you a place to mount the 4-way that bolts to the bumper.

The ball mount part # C45036 that you referenced is would also work well if you need 2 inch drop. I attached a help article that details how to pick out a ball mount drop as well.

Question:

Thanks for the reply. I have two questions that I hope you can answer for me. 1. I only tow a utility trailer. Do you have preference between the DrawTite vs the Curt trailer hitch? 2. So that I can determine which mount to get, could you tell me the mount height from the ground of a 2014 Buick Enclave and a 2006 Toyota Highlander? I ask because I just replaced my Highlander with the Enclave. The Highlander mount did not have any drop and the height was correct for my trailer.

Curt and Draw Tite both make great hitches, but for your 2014 Buick Enclave the Draw Tite is the better hitch as it has higher capacities and a lower price.

The distance from the ground to the top of the hitch opening on a 2014 Buick Enclave with the Draw Tite hitch is 19 inches which is right around the average height for a hitch. This is about 4 inches taller than what we normally saw on a 2006 Highlander so you'd most likely want a 4 inch rise like part # C45297. Then for a 2 inch ball part # 63845 or 2-5/16 inch ball # 63847.

Hi Jameson, I have ordered all of the parts except for the mount because I am still confused as to what the correct item would be. I have attached a photo showing my actual trailer, on level ground, with measurements.

Thanks for the pictures showing the drop you need!

Based on that it looks like you need a 4 inch drop like the # C45554 which comes with a 2 inch ball.
