Which Trailer Hitch for a 2007 Toyota Sienna Has the Most Ground Clearance

Question:

what is the best hitch to use on our toyota sienna 2007 LE it is only rated for pulling 3500 lbs and I need the most clearance so when backing into driveway it drags on out old van.

Expert Reply:

When we have installed trailer hitch # 36513 on Toyota Sienna vans the same generation as yours we measured approximately 11 inches from level ground to the TOP of the receiver opening. To the bottom of the receiver that would be approximately 9-1/2 inches.

On a 2 inch Class III hitch like # C13105, the measurement to the top of the tube is 10-1/4 inches and to the bottom of the tube it is 8 inches. The smaller Class II hitches like # 36513 will give you a little more clearance but have lower tongue weight and gross trailer weight capacities.

The best hitch option for ground clearance will be a Class II but depending on what you want to do with the hitch going with the Class III hitch may be the better option. In addition to a higher capacity, the 2 inch receiver on a Class III hitch gives you more options for bike racks and cargo carriers. I have included some videos and instruction links for you to view.

If you can tell me what you want to do with the hitch I can tell you which one would be the best option and recommend accessories.
