Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch vs. EcoHitch Trailer Hitch for 2019 VW Golf R


Would it be possible for you to tell me what the differences are between the ecohitch and the draw tite for a 2019 volkswagen golf R model?


Expert Reply:

There are three trailer hitches which fit your 2019 VW Golf R model, the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 24975, EcoHitch Trailer Hitch # 306-X7333 (1-1/4" receiver) and # 306-X7332 (2" receiver), but I recommend the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7332 because of two important differences, which are its 2" receiver and the fact it gives you the best ground clearance.

The 2" receiver is important because this gives you a much wider range of options when it comes to the accessories you can use. The Draw-Tite is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver and requires Class I compatible accessories, which limits what you can use. The EcoHitch is also designed to install on your '19 Golf R higher than the Draw-Tite, which means the hitch and your accessories are more protected from potential contact with the ground.

I have added a link to a video install of the 1-1/4" EcoHitch on a VW Golf for you to take a look at and use as a reference to get an idea of how it installs; the process is going to be same for the larger 2" receiver of the EcoHitch # 306-X7332 I recommend.
