Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for a 2021 Nissan Murano  


I need a trailer hitch for my 2021 Nissan Murano.


Expert Reply:

We have several options for your 2021 Nissan Murano. There is the etrailer, # e98907, Draw-Tite, # 75952, and the Curt # C13205. I recommend the etrailer, # e98907 with its matte black finish that hides inevitable scratches etc. from road debris.

Please note the linked product review and installation video I attached below of the etrailer hitch being installed on a 2020 year model Nissan Murano.

If you intend to use the hitch for towing and not just for a bike a rack or cargo carrier, you will need to a wiring solution for indicator lights on the trailer. I suggest the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, # 118660. The T-One connector simply plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness. You will need to remove the rear threshold panel and some interior trim to access the harness but it is a simple plug in connection, no wire splicing needed. Once you've plugged in the T-connector, find the 1-pin housing that is taped to the tail light harness on the driver's side and plug in the 1-pin connector on the T-One. Locate the fuse box under the hood of your vehicle and insert the provided 15-amp fuse into the 30A location.

For a ball mount to go with the hitch, I suggest the etrailer Ball Mount Kit for 2" Hitches, # 989900.
