Volkswagen Jetta Trailer Hitch Questions and Answers


  • Bike Carrying Options for 2017 Volkswagen Jetta GLI
  • You are correct that only 1-1/4-inch light-duty Class I hitches like Draw-Tite # 24926 and Curt # C11072 are offered for your 2017 Volkswagen Jetta. While it is possible to use a hitch adapter like # HTAD or # HT5R in some circumstances to allow use of a 2-inch accessory in a Class I hitch, I do not recommend this because all such adapters cause you to lose half of your hitch capacity due to the additional leverage applied to the hitch from the load being further away from it. If your two...

I'd recommend using the Draw-Tite # 24926 which IS a confirmed fit for the 2016 Jetta TSI. You'll want to consult your owner's manual to determine the actual towing capacity of the vehicle, you'll want to abide by the 2000 lb towing capacity of the hitch or the...

Take a look at the picture I have included showing the hitches installed side by side (although they are at different angles). You can see that with both the cross tube and receiver is visible. This is a design necessity for this particular vehicle. There isn't a way to make a hitch more hidden. Ground clearance is almost identical. When...

  • Can Under Body Panel be Trimmed and Reinstalled on 2016 VW Jetta when Installing Draw-Tite Hitch

What you can do is use the Curt instructions and video (linked for reference) as a guide to trim the panel.

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendation for 2013 Volkswagen Jetta with Draw Tite Hitch Installed
  • The cargo carrier seen in the beginning of the install video for the 2013 VW Jetta for hitch part # 24886 is for higher rated hitches, but we have similar Curt cargo carriers that would fit and work well. For that you would want the Curt part # C18145 or if you like the mesh floor part # C18110.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Volkswagen Jetta
  • For your 2013 Volkswagen Jetta we have two hitches available. We have the Curt hitch part # C11072 and the Draw Tite hitch part # 24886. Essentially both of these hitches would be considered "regular" hitches. They are just different brands versions of the same hitch. Since the Draw Tite does not require a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 when used with a bike rack like the Curt does so it would be the hitch I would recommend. It also has the better price. I attached an install video...

  • Class I, 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen
  • All of the available trailer hitches for the 2009 to 2011 VW Jetta SportWagen are 1-1/4 inch hitches. We do offer numerous hitch mounted bike racks that are compatible with the 1-1/4 inch, Class I hitches. However, with a Class I trailer hitch installed, you will be limited to carrying only 2 bikes as the Class I trailer hitches are not designed to withstand the amount of weight and torque associated with carrying more than 2 bikes.

  • Hitch Comparison and Recommendation for a 2011 Volkswagen Jetta
  • For bike rack use I would recommend the Draw-Tite part # 24866. The Curt hitch would require you to use a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 otherwise the warranty would be voided so the Draw-Tite wins in my opinion. As long as you stay under the 200 lb tongue weight capacity and don't try to carry more than 2 bikes this hitch would work well for you regardless of the attachment differences between it and the Curt. For trailer wiring you would want the # 118572, 1-7/8 inch hitch...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendations for a 2010 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
  • Out of all of the hitches available for a 2010 Volkswagen Jetta, I would go with the Curt hitch # 11072. It is going to offer approximately 9 inches of ground clearance from the bottom of the receiver to the ground. The round tube design generally looks better on vehicles, and you can see it in the video I have linked. All of the hitches install in basically the same way and have the same capacities so any of them would be safe and secure for towing a trailer up to 2,000 pounds. The...
