Comparing Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitches for a 2010 Ford Escape


What is the difference between the 87585 and the 75693, for a 2010 Ford Escape, can either one be installed on this Escape without the exhaust damper being removed?

Expert Reply:

The Draw-Tite trailer hitch, # 75751, and the Hidden Hitch # 87626, have the same design. They also have the same capacity, 350 pounds tongue weight and 3,500 pounds gross trailer weight. Both hitches can be used with weight distribution systems. They even share the same instructions.

You should not have to do anything with any part of the exhaust to install this trailer hitch. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you.

If you plan on doing some towing, I recommend adding etrailer Ball Mount Kit, # EBMK4, which comes with a ball mount, interchangeable ball set, a hitch pin with clip, and a carrying bag. For trailer wiring, if the vehicle does not have back up sensors in the bumper, use # 118251.

If the vehicle does have back up sensors, use # 118551. I have included links to instructions and videos for both wiring harnesses.
