Weights of Hitches for a 2019 Kia Sorento  


What is the actual weight of the following receivers: Curt 13195 e98843 Ecohitch 306-x7320 Also, the Drawtite 75908 includes a bracket for the electrical connector. Does this mean that I need to buy a separate bracket for the other receivers listed above ? Thank you !


Expert Reply:

I would be happy to help you with the weights of all the hitches we have for the 2019 Kia Sorento.

The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver item # C13195 weighs 45 lbs.

The etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver item # e98843 weighs 45 lbs

The EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver item # 306-X7320 weighs 41 lbs.

Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver item # 75908 weighs 39 lbs.

Depending on which package you have, your Kia Sorento has a 2,000 lbs - 5,000 lbs towing capacity. With the exception of the EcoHitch all of these will achieve that capacity. I have linked installation videos for all of these hitches. The only one that has a bracket for your vehicle connector is the Draw-Tite item # 75908. Since the Curt, etrailer, and Draw-Tite hitches are all so similar and that is the only noticeable difference I recommend going with the Draw-Tite.

I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector item # 118583 if your Kia doesn't have the towing package.

To tow a trailer you're going to need the Curt Towing Starter Kit for 2" Hitches item # C45534. This towing kit will provide you with a 2" ball and a fixed ball mount with a 3/4" rise and 2" drop. It also includes a hitch pin and clip, hitch receiver lock with keys, hitch cover, and a storage case.
