Speaker 1: Today we’re going to be taking a look at the best trailer hitch options for your 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan. Up here on top we’re going to have the Draw-Tite, part number 76192. Down here on the bottom we’re going to have the CURT, part number 13381. As far as similarities go, both hitches are going to be square tube in design. They’re going to have 5/8″ hitch pin holes. Both are going to have ring-style safety chain hookups for different size safety chain hooks.

They’re also going to be 2″ by 2″ and have reinforced collars.Both hitches are going to install the same. However, the Draw-Tite’s going to require a little bit of fascia trimming. Now our Draw-Tite’s going to sit just a little bit higher on our Tiguan, which is why we have to do fascia trimming. This is going to give you a little bit better ground clearance. Whereas the CURT, it’s going to sit a little bit lower.

It’s not going to require fascia trimming. However, you may need to get a raised shank for items such as your cargo carriers or bike racks.Now your Draw-Tite, you’re going to have an extra hole toward the back of your hitch here. That’s going to be for a j-pin stabilization device only. That’s used to take any shake and rattle out of any of your hitch-mounted accessories, where your CURT’s not going to have that. Draw-Tite is also going to have a pre-welded plate for any of your trailer wiring access.As far as your Draw-Tite, you’re going to have a 675 pound tongue weight rating, which is the downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube.

You’re going to have a 4,500 pound max trailer weight, which is the trailer plus the load included. As far as your CURT, you’re going to have a 525 pound max tongue weight, again, which is the downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube. Your trailer weight’s going to be 3,500 pounds. Now your Draw-Tite, you can use weight distribution. Your weights are going to stay the same.

However, your CURT, you will not be able to use weight distribution. Now I do recommend checking your owner’s manual to make sure your vehicle can withstand that amount of weight. You’re going to pick the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch.In summary, if you’re wanting a hitch that’s going to give you a little bit more weight carrying capacity and able to use weight distribution, Draw-Tite is the way to go. As far as recreational use, I’m going to have to go with the Draw-Tite. It’s going to give you a little bit better ground clearance. As far as no modifications, I’m going to have to give that one to the CURT because it doesn’t require you to have to do any fascia trimming. That will do it for a look at the best trailer hitch options on your 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan.
