Trailer Hitch and 4-Way Trailer Wiring Recommendation for a 2010 Ford Escape


Hi I have a 2010 Escape and looking to buy trailer hitch. It is used to just tow a utility trailer no electric brakes or camping trailer can i get away without the full wiring harness adapter and just splice a simple 4 pin flat connector without running power supply. What would you suggest Thanks


Expert Reply:

If your trailer only has taillight functions and no brakes or other wiring required a 4-way harness would be all that you need to tow it. For that all you would need is the part # 118551 which is a confirmed fit. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

For a trailer hitch you would want the Curt part # 13650 which is a confirmed fit and our most popular option we offer for your 2010 Ford Escape. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

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 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.
