Do All Trailer Hitch Receivers for 2019 VW Golf Alltrack Require Bumper Trimming


I have some questions about hitch receiver options for 2019 vw golf alltrack. Are there only 3 options available? Those being 1. 2 receiver from EcoHitch Item # 306-X7315 2. 1.25 receiver from curt Item # C11422 3. 1.25 receiver from draw-tite Item # 24949 if those are the three, it is unclear to me which of those require some bumper trimming during install. Can you clear that up? Thanks

I can confirm that you were right on about the trailer hitch receivers that fit your 2019 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack, and that two of them require bumper fascia trimming while one of them does not:

Requires Bumper Fascia Trimming (see accompanying cut out):
- EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7315
- Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24949

Does Not Require Bumper Fascia Trimming:
- Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11422

Of these three trailer hitches the one I recommend for your '19 Golf Alltrack is the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7315 because it is the only one with a 2" hitch receiver. This is important because a 2" receiver is going to have a much wider range of higher-quality options to choose from.
