Comparing Trailer Hitches For 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander


Im interested in a trailer hitch Package for my 2016 Outlander, I will be pulling a small 4.5 x 6 enclosed cargo trailer. I see you have two different Class III hitch Item #75888 and Item #C13163. Can you tell if there is any difference between the two packages, do you recommend one over the other and do both come with the bolts to install?

The Draw-Tite and Curt hitches have the same style and same rated capacities. The only edge one way or the other is the integrated trailer wiring bracket on the Draw-Tite # 75888 or the fact the Curt # C13163 is made in the USA. If you will be using a 4-way trailer hitch connection, then I recommend going with the Curt hitch as you won't need that mount. Both come with bolts for installation. You may want the Nylon Tube Brush - 1/2" # 814092 and # L11363 to clean your factory frame weld nuts.

If you will be towing with this hitch, then I recommend wiring harness # 118482 which will install behind your tail lights and draw power directly from your vehicle battery to protect your vehicle electronics. I've attached an article to help with routing that power wire.

Finally you will need a ball mount and I recommend the Ball Mount Kit for 2" Hitches # 989900 which will give you different rise and drop options to tow level. I've attached an article to assist with the ball mount height as well.
