Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2006 Volkswagen Jetta TDI


Do you sell a Class 2 set up for my car with 2inch ball?


Expert Reply:

There are only Class I trailer hitches available for the 2006 VW Jetta, see link. Out of the available trailer hitches I recommend Draw-Tite hitch # 24866 because if you use an accessory in the hitch like a bike rack you do NOT have to use a stabilization strap like you would with the Curt hitch. The recommended ball mount is # 3593. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256. For a 2 inch ball use # 19258.

This hitch has a 200 pound tongue weight capacity and 2,000 pound gross trailer weight capacity. Be sure to check the vehicle owners manual to determine the towing capacity of the vehicle.

For trailer wiring, use # 118667. I have included a link to the wiring and hitch instructions for you.
