Best 2011 Buick Regal Hitch Options


Speaker 1: Today you're going to be taking a look at the best trailer hitch options for your 2011 Buick Regal. Here we're going to have our Draw-Tite hitch. This is going to be a Class 2. Over here we're going to have our CURT, which also is going to be a Class 2.Here we have our Draw-Tite installed on our Buick. As we can see, it's going to sit up nicely just a little bit below our bumper but it's going to blend in with that black plastic nicely. Now even though this is our Draw-Tite, our CURT has the same design, so it's going to sit in the same position and give us the same amount of ground clearance.

They're also going to give us that 1-1/4" by 1-1/4" receiver tube opening.Now you can see they have the same design. They're going to have very, very slight differences. The first thing you might notice is going to be the collar on the end of our receiver tube. The Draw-Tite and the CURT are both going to have reinforced collars, giving them added strength, but they're just going to have a different look to them. The Draw-Tite is just going to look like it has a piece that's going around it that's welded in place, whereas the CURT is going to have more of a rounded flush-cut look to it.Our CURT trailer hitch receiver is going to have a 3,500 pound gross trailer weight rating along with a 350 pound tongue weight, which is going to be nice if you have a cargo carrier or even a bike rack or anything like that to put on the back of your Regal.

Our Draw-Tite is going to have very, very similar ratings. It's going to have a 3,500 pound gross trailer weight rating but the tongue weight is only going to be 300 pounds.Another benefit besides the added tongue weight of our CURT, it's going to come with a pin and clip so we're not going to have to worry about picking one up. With the Draw-Tite you are going to have to provide your own pin and clip or locking device. You can pick up a standard 1/2" pin and clip, which both of our hitches are going to use, on our website using part number PC2.One thing that you will need to keep in mind with the CURT trailer hitch receiver, the manufacturer does recommend that you use a stabilization strap for any non-trailer load or any loads that don't have wheels on them such as a bike rack or a cargo carrier. You can pick up that stabilization strap on our website using part number 18050.

Whereas with the Draw-Tite, you're not going to have to worry about buying that strap.As far as installation goes, both the Draw-Tite and the CURT are going to install the same. We're not going to have any drilling or cutting required but our hitch is going to be in a couple different pieces, so keep that in mind when you go to put it in.In conclusion, it's really going to come down to which hitch you like more. They're both going to be very, very similar, they're going to install the same, and they're going to give you the same amount of ground clearance. If you like the collar on either one more, or if the strap on the CURT is an issue, then I would go with the Draw-Tite. But if picking up extra parts for the pin and clip is an issue, I would go with the CURT.

The 50 pound tongue weight, I don't know if it's really going to be a major concerning factor, but again, the CURT does have that slightly better tongue weight over the Draw-Tite. But I feel that either one is a great choice for your Buick Regal. That will finish up your look at the best trailer hitch options for your Buick Regal.
