Can Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver with Drawbar, Part # 11468, Haul 2000 lbs with a 2009 Prius


Can I tow with a Prius?


Expert Reply:

The 2009 Prius is not specified to tow anything, according to the manufacturer. However, you will want to double check your owners manual to confirm the manufacturer recommendations and precautions in this regard.

The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver with Drawbar - Custom Fit, part # 11468, will fit your vehicle. It is intended for purposes such as supporting a bike rack or small cargo carrier. This light-duty Class I hitch receiver has a tongue weight (TW) rating of 200 pounds, which is adequate to support the weight of a bike carrier and two bicycles. Typically such items together will weigh in the vicinity of 100 pounds (25 - 35 pounds each for a bike carrier and each of two bikes).

In your circumstances the limiting factor to towing the 2000 pound load is not the hitch but the vehicle itself.
