Best Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2017 Nissan Pathfinder for Towing and Bike Rack  


I am looking for a trailer hitch that can tow a boat and has versatility for a bike rack and so forth. I have a 2017 Nissan Pathfinder 4 wheel drive. Towing capacity is 6000 lbs. What would my best option be? I would love to buy American and support our economy!


Expert Reply:

The best trailer hitch receiver for your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13309.

You mentioned you wanted an American product, and this hitch is made in the USA, has a 6,000 lb towing capacity to match your Pathfinder, and has a 2 inch receiver, which means it is highly versatile for towing and accessories like a bike rack compared to a hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver.

It is also going to be mostly concealed, as you can see by the accompanying photo of the hitch installed on a Pathfinder. I have added links to the instructions as well as a video install for you to check out as well of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13309.

To complete your towing package you'll need T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118670; for a bike rack I recommend the Hollywood Racks Trail Rider 2-Bike Rack # HR200Z for a budget-friendly option or the Yakima HoldUp 2-Bike Rack # Y02443 for something a bit easier to use and with a higher capacity. I've added links to video reviews of both racks on a Pathfinder for you to take a look at.
