Recommended Trailer Wiring Harness for 2013 VW Jetta SportWagen


I am about to purchase an Eco Hitch for my Sportwagen in order to pull a Gheenoe boat, but I am not sure what would be the best wiring kit for my purposes. Id like to keep the price reasonable while not being short on the wiring. I will also likely have LED lights. Thank you in advance for your help.

The EcoHitch # 306-X7284 is a great choice! In order to add wiring to tow your boat (those are really cool, by the way), you'll want to use the Tekonsha # 119190KIT which comes with a circuit protected Modu-Lite converter to help protect the electrical components on your vehicle. I recommend using the Tekonsha over the Curt # C59496 harnesses because the converter is a little bit more reliable and since you're likely going to have LED lights on your trailer, the slight difference in amp draw isn't of much benefit.

This harness will need to be hard wired in, since there are not any plug and play options available, but I've linked the installation videos we have of the harness and hitch for you to help make that process easier.
