Best 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Trailer Hitch Options


Today you're going to be taking a look at the best hitch options for your 2018 Chevrolet Camaro. Up top here, we're going to have our Draw-Tite. It's going to be a class I hitch. Then right below that, we're going to have our CURT, which is also going to be a class I hitch. If I we're looking for a hitch for my Camaro, I would go with the Draw-Tite, purely because it's going to be a little bit easier of an install and we're not going to have to trim anything. But, let's take a closer look at the differences between the two.

Right off the bat, you're going to notice that both the Draw-Tite and CURT are going to share a very similar design. There's only going to be a few differences between the two. Our Draw-Tite's going to have a nice flush cut end on the end of the receiver tube, whereas with the CURT, it's going to have this reinforced collar, giving it more of a finished look to it. Both the hitches are going to give you an inch and a quarter by inch and a quarter receiver tube opening, which would be good for bike racks or cargo carriers, or some light duty towing.Each one of these hitches is going to do a good job. Kust keep in mind you might want to get a bike rack or cargo carrier with a raised shank, that way we get a little bit more ground clearance since our Camaro sits so low.

Each one of our hitches are going to have the same weight ratings. They're going to have a 200 pound tongue weight, which is the maximum downward force of the receiver tube, along with a 2,000 pound gross trailer weight rating. That's the amount they can pull with everything loaded on it. Now, with those numbers in mind, you always want to double check your Camaro's owner's manual and never exceed the manufacturer's recommended towing weight.As far as appearance goes, we have our Draw-Tite installed in our Camaro here, and you can see the cross tube is going to be completely hidden behind the bumper, and all we're going to see is the receiver tube sticking out. The CURT is going to have a similar design of where it's going to sit, and it's going to be below the bumper and that cross tube also is going to be hidden behind the bumper.

Neither one of these hitches is going to require any kind of drilling. However, the CURT is going to require a little bit of trimming of the fascia on the bottom, so it can make room for the receiver tube to stick out.One thing I do want to mention with the CURT, if we're towing any non-trailer load like a bike rack or a cargo carrier that doesn't have tires supporting it, the manufacturer does recommend the use of a stabilization strap, whereas with the Draw-Tite, we're not going to have to worry about that. So to sum everything up, if appearance is a big concern of yours, it's really going to come down to personal preference if you like the way the Draw-Tite or the CURT looks, because they're both going to be hidden behind the bumper and sit about the same height. If installation is a big concern of yours, I would go with the Draw-Tite, purely because they're both going to install relatively the same, however the CURT is going to require a little bit of trimming on the lower fascia.If you're looking for a hitch for recreational purposes like adding a bike rack, I would go with the Draw-Tite. CURT is going to require the use of a stabilization strap, whereas with the Draw-Tite, we're not going to have to worry about that.

I hope this information has helped you whenever you're looking for a hitch for your Camaro.
