Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for a 2010 Ford Escape


I need to install a trailer hitch for 2 inch ball and trailer wiring on a 2010 Ford Escape Hybrid AWD. I going to be towing a trailer and drift boat weighing about 800lbs total. What products to you recommend? I watched the escape instruction videos and it seems straightforward.

For a hitch confirmed as a fit for your 2010 Ford Escape Hybrid the Curt hitch part # 13650 would be the hitch to get. This hitch has a 2 inch opening, is made in the US, and is our most popular option. I attached an install video for the hitch 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 then would want the part # 118551. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.
