Recommended Trailer Hitch, Trailer Wiring Harness, And Ball Mount For A 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe


what hitch and ball mount do I need to tow a small trailer?


Expert Reply:

For your 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C34ER. Curt manufactures their hitches in the US unlike their competitors, so you can rest assured that your hitch has passed numerous quality checks to ensure you receive the best product. Curt's gloss black powder coat finish over protective base coat is known to last longer than other brands and offers a superior rust resistance. This hitch is a simple bolt-on installation with all hardware needed included.

Since you need to tow a trailer you'll also need a 4-pole connector to transfer your stop/turn signals to your trailer. For this I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118784. This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located behind the driver's-side interior trim panel in your rear cargo area

Once installation is complete, the 4-way flat connector will be stowed in an out-of-the-way location within your cargo area or attached to the hitch or bumper using the Mounting Bracket 4-Pole Flat # 18144.

For a good starter ball mount kit I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit for 2" Hitches - 7,500lbs # 989900. This kit will come with a 1-7/8" hitch ball and 2" hitch ball. It has a drop of 2" or 4" and a rise of 1" or 3" to keep your trailer level while towing.
