Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2017 BMW X5


I am looking for a towing set up for my 2017 X5. Thanks.


Expert Reply:

For your 2017 BMW X5 a popular hitch option is the Draw-Tite hitch # 75600. This is a 2 inch hitch rated for 6,000 pounds gross trailer weight and 600 pounds tongue weight. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation for you.

I also recommend 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 have the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, use the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.

And for trailer wiring I recommend the ZCI harness # 119250KIT. With it you will not have to splice into the vehicle wiring. I have linked a video on this harness as well.
