Differences Between Curt Hitch # C13105 and Hidden Hitch # 87415 for a 2008 Toyota Sienna

Question:

Hi - I am looking for a hitch for my 2008 Sienna awd and am wondering about the main differences between the Curt Model and the Draw-Tite model. I am particularly interested to find out if one results in a better ground clearance. Thank you.

Expert Reply:

As far as installation and strength are concerned, the two hitches are actually very similar. Both install in the same location and mounting holes on the vehicle, and both are rated to tow up to 3500lbs. Both hitches will also have a similar ground clearance, because they both would feature the entire cross tube running below the vehicle bumper once installed.

The main difference in this case would really be aesthetics. The Curt hitch # C13105 is angled slightly near the ends, so it would have a little sleeker appearance once installed. You would see the main central part of the hitch below the bumper, but the ends would be slightly recessed under the vehicle.

The Draw-Tite # 75237 has a similar fit, but the ends of the cross tube are not angled. If you install the Draw-Tite you would see the entire cross tube of the hitch below the bumper, including the ends.

Both hitches will extend down the same distance below the vehicle.

I am including links to the installation instructions for both hitches, as well as an installation video for you to reference for each.
