Recommended Hitch for 2012 Toyota Prius V


I have a 2012 Prius V wagon and there are three available hitches in your website. DrawTite and Curt. Do you have a recommendation based on best fit and ease of installation? Thanks


Expert Reply:

The best hitch for you will depend on what you were wanting to use it for.

If you were planning on simply using the hitch as a mount for a bike rack (due to the capabilities of the Class I hitch, you will need a Class I rated bike rack and will be limited to carrying two bikes), the Draw-Tite Class I receiver, part # 24847 would be your best choice.

The Curt hitch, # C11276 would also be a fine choice, albeit a bit more expensive. The hitch warranty stipulates that a stabilizing strap like # 18050 must be used for all non-trailer loads like bike racks or cargo carriers. The Draw-Tite model has no such requirement, which is why I recommend it over the Curt.

For install details as well as an install video, click on the provided link. I have also linked you to our selection of Class I rated bike racks.
