Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2003 Chevy S-10 with Factory Step Bumper


Hi, I am shopping for a hitch for my 2003 Chevy S-10 standard bed. I will be towing a kayak trailer with up to 4 kayaks. What do you recommend? Thanks,


Expert Reply:

The most popular hitch we offer for your 2003 Chevy S-10 that would work great is the Draw-Tite part # 75051. This hitch would have more than enough capacity as it is rated for 3,500 lbs total trailer weight. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

Since 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 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.

For trailer wiring you would want the # 118359 which I attached an install video for this as well.
