Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Vs EcoHitch Trailer Hitch for 2019 VW Golf R


I have a 2019 VW Golf R, and I was looking at the draw-tite and Ecohitch, what's the difference?


Expert Reply:

The best hitch for your 2019 Volkswagen Golf R is the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7332 because it is the only hitch currently with a 2" receiver tube. The big benefit to having a 2" receiver is the wide variety of accessories, like bike racks and cargo carriers. Ecohitch also makes a hitch with 1 1/4" reciever tube # 306-X7333

The Draw-tite # 24975 is a class I, so it has a 1 1/4" receiver tube opening. This limits the hitch to class I accessories and really narrows the options down.

All the hitches are going to have the same weight capacities of 2,000 Lbs GTW, just make sure you check your Golf's owners manual and make sure that it can handle that weight. The 2" EcoHitch has a higher tongue weight capacity of 300 Lbs (as compared to 200 Lbs for the others).

I attached a photo a customer sent in so you can see what it looks like fully installed. I also linked the parts and an install video of a similar year Golf for you to reference.
