INSTALLING A TRAILER HITCH ON 2017 HYUNDAI SANTA FE XL

Written by Hitchweb Team Monday, May 8, 2017

 IS THERE A TRAILER HITCH FOR THE 2017 HYUNDAI SANTA FE XL?

At this time, aftermarket manufacturers such as Curt and Draw-Tite are stating that a trailer hitch is not yet available for the XL. Our customer decided to try the Curt Class 3 Trailer Hitch Part #13153 and had positive results. Here is what he had to say and pictures of the installation below:

Ordered this hitch for my Santa Fe XL 2017 and it worked out just great. Fit like a glove. There's a bit of spacing but I don't think that matters much, maybe 1/4"-1/8" on one side of spacing but with all the done, looks smooth

Solution for Bike Rack Wobble?

Written by Hitchweb Team Friday, April 28, 2017

Our customer asked us: When I'm driving with my bike rack on my F250 (2" receiver) I notice there is some wobble.. we aren't over the tongue weight limit on the rack. Is there a solution for this?

Even the best fitting bike racks can ocassionaly have a little sway/wobble when you're on the road, especially when fully loaded with all your bikes. The best solution is to get an anti-rattle pin kit to help get the tightest fit possible. These pin kits are available for both 1 1/4" receivers as well as 2" receivers and some can be locked for extra security. 


Our most popular pin for 2" receivers is part# TAR300 from Trimax - here are a few of the key features and benefits:

  • Built with an adjustable pin for a tight fit that eliminates rattle

What is the difference between the Reese Dual Cam Sway Control Kit #26001 and the updated version #26002?

Reese discontinued #26001 and replaced it with the #26002 which has a completely different mounting style.
The new Reese Dual Cam #26002 bolts into the frame instead of using u-bolts to secure it to the bottom.

Can All My Rhino-Rack Accessories Have The Same Key?

Written by Hitchweb Team Wednesday, March 15, 2017

Our customer asked us: I have a Rhino-Rack Vortex roof rack system and canoe carrier that use different keys. Can I setup my system so they all use the same key?

The answer is yes! The Masterkey system allows you to swap out the existing locks to make all your Rhino-Rack roof racks, carriers, and accessories keyed alike. These can also be added to racks with plastic locks for increased security. Available in the Crossbar Replacement Parts section of our site, these kits come with 2,4 or 8 cores and 2 keys.
