Best 2011 Volkswagen Routan Hitch Options


Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the best hitch options for the 2011 Volkswagen Routan. This is going to be our Class 2. These two are going to be our Class 3 hitches. Your CURT and your Draw-Tite are going to mount the exact same way. You're going to have three mounting points on your driver side, two of them on your passenger side. Now on the Class 2 Draw-Tite, you're only going to have two mounting points on the driver side and two mounting points on the passenger side.

All three hitches use existing hardware that's already on the vehicle.Now your CURT hitches are going to require a stabilization strap. However, your Draw-Tites are not going to require it. Now both your CURT and your Draw-Tite Class 3s are going to have a 400 pound max tongue weight and a 4,000 pound max trailer weight. Both of your Class 3s can be used with weight distribution. Both max tongue weights are going to be 500 pounds, and max trailer weights are going to be 5,000 pounds.Now on your Class 2 you're going to have a 300 pound max tongue weight and a 3,500 pound max trailer weight.

Now all three are going to have loop-style safety rings that provide you with great access in the front and the back for your safety chain hookup. Now with the CURT, you have a little bit longer neck so it's probably going to stick out a little bit farther. With your Draw-Tite, the neck's a little bit shorter but you do have the option to have a j-pin stabilization device. It's going to take the shake and rattle out of all your hitch-mounted accessories. All three hitches are going to have a conventional square crosstube design that's going to hide up behind your bumper.

Now we have this Class 3 Draw-Tite mounted on a 2009 Volkswagen Routan. Let's go ahead and take a look at it.As you can see, the hitch is tucked back behind the bumper so you don't have to worry about hitting your legs on it. However, you still have good access to your hitch pin hole and your j-pin stabilization hole. Your Class 3s are going to be more versatile. If you're carrying a heavier load, these are going to be the better option, where if you're looking at like a cargo carrier or a bike rack, this is going to be a better option for you.

That will do it for a look at the best hitch options for your Volkswagen Routan.
