Best Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2019 Volkswagen Golf R


I'm curious what you think is the best overall trailer hitch receiver for my 2019 Volkswagen Golf? It is the R model so I think there's some specific fits, correct?


Expert Reply:

The best overall trailer hitch receiver for your 2019 Volkswagen Golf R is the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7332 because this is the only hitch for this vehicle which has a 2 inch receiver, which is important because it give you a much wider range of accessories such as bike racks and cargo carriers to choose from. For example, as of this writing there are currently five times as many cargo carriers that fit a 2" hitch than a 1-1/4" hitch and three times as many bike racks for a 2" hitch compared to a 1-1/4" hitch.

The caveat to the EcoHitch # 306-X7332 is that it has a higher price tag due to the fact it is made out of an alloy of recycled metal. There is a more cost-effective option, the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24975, though this is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver, which means you are very limited in your options for accessories, as it will only accept Class I accessories.

I have also added links to our selection of bike racks and cargo carriers for you to check out as well if you are looking for accessories.
