Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver and Motorcycle Carrier for a 2010 Toyota Highlander


I have a 2010 toyota highlander w/o tow package. I would like to install a motorcycle rack and hitch. Any recommendations?


Expert Reply:

The carrier I recommend is the MaxxTow, part # MT70101, because it's aluminum making it lighter than other steel carriers. This makes it easier to mount into a trailer hitch and also takes up less of the vehicle's available tongue weight as well. This carrier is also equipped with a 41 inch long ramp to make it easier to load the bike.

The hitch I recommend for your 2010 Toyota Highlander is the Class III, part # E98858. It's similar to the Curt, part # 13534, that's also a fit for your Toyota but the Curt requires you use a stabilization strap, part # 18050, in order to be compliant with their warranty. The hitch doesn't have this requirement.

I've linked a video of the Curt hitch being installed on a 2010 Highlander. The hitch installs in the same process.
