Hitch, Wiring and Brake Controller for 2016 Land Rover Evoque


I have a 2016 range rover evoque I need a hitch that would work with a 19 foot long bow ride boat

We offer three options in a 2-inch Class III hitch for your 2016 Land-Rover Evoque that can be seen on the linked page. The highest capacity hitch offered is the Draw-Tite # 75227 which has a tongue weight rating of 675-lbs and a gross trailer weight rating of 4500-lbs. This hitch fits so long as you do NOT have the Autobiography edition. If you do then instead use the Curt hitch # C13128 but note this hitch is rated to only 4000-lbs.

You may care to use our cost-effective Ball Mount Kit # 989900 which includes two sizes of hitch ball, two ball mounts with different rise/drop and a pin and clip.

I checked the online edition of the owner's manual for the 2016 Evoque and it indicates a maximum permissible gross trailer weight of 3500-lbs for on-road driving and 1650-lbs for off-road driving. This means that the combined weight of your boat and trailer together cannot exceed these limits.

If the trailer has brakes then you will also need a trailer brake controller like the Prodigy P3 # 90195. If the Evoque has the factory tow package option all you'll need to install the controller is the wiring adapter # 3035-P.

If the vehicle does NOT have the tow package option then instead use the Prodigy RF Wireless Trailer Brake Controller # 90250 along with kit # ETBC7 and 4-pole kit # 119250KIT.
