Benefit of Using EcoHitch Over Draw-Tite or Curt Trailer Hitch for a 2019 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack


Is there any advantage of using the ecohitch instead of the draw-tite or curt for a 2019 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack? I'm debating whether it's worth the extra money or not for the larger hitch. Plan on using it for a bike rack.

I definitely see where you are coming from in regards to pricing vs the larger hitch receiver for your 2019 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack. There are quite a few bike racks that are compatible with the Draw-Tite # 24949 and Curt # C11422 1-1/4" hitch receivers but you can use a lot more accessories with the EcoHitch # 306-X7315. Whenever the 2" option is available for a vehicle we recommend going with it because your short term plan is using it for a bike rack, but the larger receiver will come in handy if you ever need to use it for something else so I recommend using the EcoHitch.

For a bike rack that is compatible with both hitch receiver sizes I recommend the Kuat Transfer # TS02G. This bike rack secures bikes by their wheels and it has a unique u-shaped base that really makes it easier to load the bike that sits closer to your Golf Alltrack. You can add locks for the bikes and rack with the lock set # PTSCLK12. I have attached a review video of this bike rack on a 2017 Volkswagen Golf that you can check out.
