Curt or Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2021 Acura RDX to Resist Scratches/Corrosion


Which hitch is the better/rust resistant option Curt have on highlander and rusty after 2 years or Draw-Tite? Any videos on either install with this model year? seen comments on hitch received scratched/damaged - free return/replacement?


Expert Reply:

While there won't be a difference in terms of corrosion resistance between the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C95CR and Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76268 for your 2021 Acura RDX, I recommend the latter, the Draw-Tite # 76268.

The reason why is that the Curt has a slightly glossier finish than the Draw-Tite, so scratches are going to be a bit more noticeable. These two hitches are otherwise exactly the same, with the same installation, and as of this writing there are no installation videos.

In regards to corrosion, that's going to be inevitable to some degree, but if you do see scratches or dings where the paint chips off, a spray of anti-rust paint or even standard spray paint can help resist corrosion. In regards to a damaged product you will definitely not be stuck with it, you will be able to exchange it for a replacement.
