Does Draw Tite Hitch part # 36635 Require Bumper Trimming on 2018 Volkswagen Atlas


I am looking for a class 1 hitch that will fit a 2018 VW Atlas. I work for VW and lease their atlas and anything I find requires modifications like trimming the bumper which I cannot do or would have to pay dearly for when I turn It in. I only need it to be able to tow a jet ski to a dock a mile down a backroad so I will not mess with hooking up lights to it and need something pretty simple to take off and put on another atlas everytime I trade in the vehicle. Does the Draw-Tite 36635 require any bumper trimming? If so is the carriage bolts that come with it, the longest that can be fed into the frame holes or could I buy longer ones that would feed into the frame and allow me to put spacers in between the hitch and frame to lower it some to maybe clear the bumper without trimming?


Helpful Expert Reply:

The Draw Tite hitch part # 36635 is a fit for your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas and does not require any bumper trimming or modification. You'd have to enlarge some of the access holes on the frame to fit the hardware into it but that's the extent of the modification.
