The Draw-Tite # 75952 hitch is manufactured by the parent company, Cequent Performance Products.

The Curt # C13205 has a warranty stipulation that requires a stabilizing strap like # 18050 be used for non-trailer loads (like bike racks and cargo carriers.) Not only is this an extra expense, but not all vehicles are well suited to using the strap. The strap is meant to hook onto the vehicle at the top of the liftgate or rear of a trunk lid. If the vehicle has a spoiler on top of the liftgate like your Murano does, I wouldn't recommend using the strap, which would rule our the Curt hitch.

If you'll be towing with your Murano, you'll also need the following accessories:

Trailer wiring harness, part # 118660
Ball mount, part # 2923
1-7/8 trailer ball, part # 19260 or # 63845
Locking hitch pin, part # 40107

I've linked you to the products I've recommended, as well as to some installation videos.

Since the Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite have no warranty stipulations requiring that a strap be used, I'd recommend going with one or the other. Since the Hidden Hitch # 87679 is a couple of dollars less expensive, I'd go with that one.
