What is the difference between the Curt MV Round Bar Weight Distribution Hitch #17052 and the Curt Round Bar Weight Distribution Hitch #17002?

While the two weight distribution hitches seem identical, the MV Curt Round Bar System #17052 features a heavy-duty, fabricated head with grease zerks providing easy, continuous lubrication.

Will the Draw-TIte Trailer Hitch #76190 fit the Volvo XC60?

Cequent Towing Products (manufacturer of Draw-Tite) announced last week a fit change on their #76190 trailer hitch for the 2018 Volvo Line-up.

Draw-tite #76190 (#84190 Hidden Hitch) was originally included the Volvo XC60 as well as the Volvo XC90. They have since removed the XC60 and this hitch only fits 2016 to current Volvo XC90

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.
