Comparing etrailer, Curt and EcoHitch Hitch Receivers For Ground Clearance On a 2014 Toyota Sienna


Hi, Whats the difference between C13343 and e98853? Im looking for the hitch that gives me the best clearance from the ground to the bottom of the hitch for a 2014 Sienna. No towing just for bike carrier attachment. Product 306-X7255 is significantly more expensive but I cant tell if it will offer the most amount of clearance. C13343 and e98853 looking identical in the 360 degree pictures. Thanks in advance fore your time and help!

The only difference in the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98853 and Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13343 is going to be the powder coat being matte black on the etrailer and gloss black on the Curt. As we have partnered with Curt to build our receivers in the matte black finish they are identical in dimensions. I do prefer the matte black powder coat on the etrailer receiver as it gives a more OEM appearance.

As these both mount in the same position as the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7255 that you are also looking at there is not going to be a major difference in the ground clearance on your 2014 Toyota Sienna.

I do recommend installing the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118498 on your Sienna as it will allow you to use Auxiliary Lights # C53201. These lights will keep you out of trouble as depending on the size of your bikes it provides a set of lights that drivers behind you will have an unobstructed view.
