2017 Audi Q7

I bought a curt hitch, but the video for the stealth hitch was amazingly helpful - how to take apart the car, find wires... I had to figure out how to cut the facia myself, but when I was done, I saw that there was a picture your site. Doh. From turning my first screw, watching videos, more watching videos, tracing wires, reading directions, watching video again, looking at wiring diagram AGAIN... maybe with a few interruptions... this was about a 6 hour job for me.

If I had a second one to do - same exact car, I think I could knock it out in about 2 hours.

Ready to go to the lake!

Audi Q7

This worked great for installing the hitch on the Q7. Very satisfied with the results. Took about 2 hours to complete.


Transaction smooth, everything worked as it should. Thank you!


Great hitch, looks good and easy to ins tall.


Fast service and free shipping. Great e xperience.

2018 Audi Q7

Great product. Fitment was perfect and pricing was great.


We purchased this trailer hitch to be able to attach 4 bikes to our SUV. With that in mind, have not had to test it's weight capacity, but I can say it fit well (required small bumper modification, but not visible), and has done a solid job.


Very happy with the quality of the hitch and design. I am also happy that etrailer priced matched a competitor and refunded me the difference. My only issue was the packaging. The box was beat up and the part of the hitch went through. There were scratches on the frame and even the receiver which was taped up had scratches on it as well. I know that it will end up getting nicked eventually but I wished that it came without any damage. Overall a great product and good customer service.


Great product, fast shipping, and the online instructions made an intimidating job relatively easy. Took about 2 hours for a couple of beginners and happy with the finished product.

  • 2 inch Trailer Hitch for 2021 Audi Q7
    We have 2 inch hitches that fit your 2021 Audi Q7 like the Curt # C13277 that you referenced but due to how the vehicle is designed there isn't a way to install a hitch on the vehicle without trimming the fascia. This Curt hitch would be the best option as we have found that Curt hitches have the highest build quality, great capacities, and easy installs.

  • Is Fascia Trimming Required To Install A Trailer Hitch On A 2019 Audi Q7
    Yes, both the Curt Trailer Hitch part # C13277 and Draw-Tite trailer hitch part # 76076 require fascia trimming on the 2019 Audi Q7. Both installations require the temporary removal of the bumper beam as well to get to the install location. This is required because both designs have a concealed cross tube that only allow the receiver portion of the hitch to stick through the fascia for an OEM look. The Draw-Tite option does require about an inch less of fascia trimming compared to the Curt...

  • Is Trimming Required to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2018 Audi Q7
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13277 is indeed correct for your 2018 Audi Q7. If you take a look at the attached photo, you can see the portion of the rear bumper fascia that must be trimmed in order to allow for clearance of the receiver tube. You can also see the portion of the rear bumper fascia that must be trimmed for the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76076 which is the only other trailer hitch receiver listed as a fit for your 2018 Audi Q7. It requires...

  • Which Trailer Hitch for 2021 Audi Q7 Has Best Ground Clearance
    For ground clearance the best hitch for your 2021 Audi Q7 is the Curt # C13277 over the Draw Tite you mentioned as it has safety chain loops that go out to the sides of the hitch tube instead of hanging down below it which lowers ground clearance.

  • Trailer Wiring Recommendation for 2022 Audi Q7 without Drilling
    We have the Curt hitch part # C13277 as a confirmed fit for your 2022 Audi Q7 which does not require drilling to install and is mostly hidden. Then for trailer wiring the Curt # C59236 is a confirmed fit as well.

  • 2 inch Trailer hitch Recommendation for 2018 Audi Q7
    We have a 2 inch hitch that is a fit for your 2018 Audi Q7. For that you'd want the Curt hitch part # C13277 which will fit and work well. It has a 7,000 lb towing capacity. For trailer wiring then you'd want the ZCI # 119250KIT which will give you a 4-way. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8...

  • Stealth Hitch for 2017 Audi Q7 That Won't Affect Hands Free Lift Gate
    With the Stealth hitch that fits your 2017 Audi Q7 part # 391AUDQ716 the hands free lift gate sensors would not be affected at all. The trimming of the fascia is not near enough to the sensors to be an issue at all. Since this hitch has a lower opening that totally removes when not in use so the sensors would not be affected like other options.

  • Best Hitch 2019 Audi Q7 that Allows Hands Free Lift Gate to Function
    It's possible that with the Curt hitch part # C13277 installed on your 2019 Audi Q7 you'd have limited access to the hands free liftgate function of your vehicle. You'd be limited to kicking to either side of the hitch opening. Now the best option for your vehicle is the Stealth hitch part # 391AUDQ716 that you referenced as the lower hitch opening removes when not in use so your hands free liftgate wouldn't be affected at all.

  • Best Ground Clearance Hitch for 2022 Audi Q7
    I suggest the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, # C13277 due to the way it mounts. You will need to trim the fascia to install this or any other model hitch on the Audi Q7. But this has best clearance and build quality. Please note the linked instructions and the attached image showing the hitch installed. This has a minimal section that hangs down providing hindered ground clearance. If you will be towing, I suggest the ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness, # 119250KIT. Along with...

    In order to install the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13277 some trimming of the fascia will be required. This will be a 3.5" x 7.25" area as outlined in the instructions. This is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver and a concealed cross tube. It features a gloss black powder coat finish and a bolt-on installation. This hitch has a maximum gross trailer weight of 7,000 lbs and tongue weight of 700 lbs. If you plan on towing, I recommend the ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness...

  • Why Cant 2019 Audi Q7 Use Weight Distribution System
    The reason a 2019 Audi Q7 cannot use a weight distribution system is because the hitches that fit, the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76076 and Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13277 are not rated for use with a weight distribution system; I can only render a guess but it is likely the OEM hitch is also not rated for use with one of these systems. The reason for that is the amount of torque on the hitch and where it is installed on the vehicle puts too much force on for the...

  • Is There Cutting Required for Installing a Hitch on My 2021 Audi Q7?
    Yes, there is some trimming that is required to install both the Draw-Tite Hitch # 76076 and the Curt Hitch # C13277 to your 2021 Audi Q7. Unfortunately, we do not have any hitch receivers that do not require trimming on your vehicle. If you need tools to help you with trim removal/cutting, I recommend the Composite Trim Removal Tool Kit - 5 Piece # PT73HJ

  • Difference Between Curt, etrailer, and Draw Tite Hitch for 2018 Audi Q7
    The Curt # C13277 and the etrailer hitch part # e88KR are both very similar as they are made by the same company with big difference being that the etrailer hitch has a matte finish and the Curt has a gloss finish. The Draw Tite # 76076 is a similar design by a different company. It has a slightly higher towing capacity at 7,700 lbs compared to 7,000 lb which is it's biggest advantage. The others are rated at 7,000 lbs. We do find typically that the consistency and quality control is best...

  • Hitch Receiver and Towing Set Up for 2020 Audi Q7
    I have a solution for your 2020 Audi Q7 but you are going to have to do some cutting of a lower trim fascia. I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver item # 76076. This hitch receiver is custom fit to your vehicle and requires no welding or drilling into your frame. I have linked the installation instructions to show you the 6.25 inch by 3.5 inch section that will have to be cut out of the lower panel below your rear bumper trim.

    The Curt hitch # C13277 is a confirmed fit on your 2017 Audi Q7 but the wiring harness # C55515 is not confirmed at this time. This harness does not fit any Audi models; it fits only U.S. vehicles that have an industry-standard round U.S. Car type connector, which is usually found under the rear bumper or tucked away behind the spare tire. The correct 4-pole wiring harness options for your 2017 Q7 are Curt part # C59236 and Tekonsha # 119250KIT. The Curt is a hard-wired installation and...

  • Recommended Hitch With Best Ground Clearance For A 2022 Audi Q7
    The hitch I recommend for your 2022 Audi Q7 is the Curt # C13277. This American made hitch will be a pretty involved install, but once finished will have a clean, stock look as only the receiver tube will be able to be seen. So no ugly cross tube. This will also be great for carrying a cargo carrier, like the Curt # C18150, as it is rated up to 7,000 pounds towing and 700 pounds of tongue weight capacity (which is the one you will need to keep an eye on for a cargo carrier), but you will...

  • 5-Way Wiring Harness For 2017 Audi Q7.
    Hi, if there is no hitch installed on your 2017 Audi Q7 I suggest the Curt Class III Receiver Hitch # C13277. It has a 700 pound tongue weight and a 7000 pound towing weight. The harnesses we have for this Audi all have powered converter boxes. This is to protect the vehicle's wiring and also keep the trailer from drawing to much of the vehicle's power. I would use the ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness w/ 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector and Installation Kit # 119250KIT paired...

  • Is Cutting Required to Install Trailer Hitch on 2020 Audi Q7
    Yes, all of the hitches we carry for your 2020 Audi Q7 require fascia trimming. The Curt, part # C13277 has the least amount of trimming. I've attached pictures that show how much trimming is needed for each hitch. Despite the Curt requiring less trimming I prefer the Stealth hitches for your Audi. The appearance after the hitch is installed is a lot nicer in my opinion. With the Curt you see the receiver opening all the time and you can even kind of see the area that was trimmed. With...
