When comparing the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Class IV, part # 41929, to the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Class IV, part # 14361, they are similar, but the new version of the Draw-Tite # 41929 is rated higher. The Draw-Tite Class IV Hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 1,200 pounds and towing capacity of 12,000 pounds. The Curt Class IV Hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 1,000 pounds, and towing capacity of 10,000 pounds. Both part # 41929, and part # 14361 have a 2 inch receiver opening.

I would recommend the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Class IV, part # 41929, as it has the highest tongue weight and towing capacity.

To complete your towing setup you will also need a ball mount, pin and clip, hitch ball, wiring, and brake controller.

For a ball mount I would recommend Draw-Tite Ball Mount, part # 4281, which can be used for a 3 inch rise or 4 inch drop. You will want to measure to see how much of a rise or drop you will need (see ball mount FAQ).

For a pin and clip, you can use Pin and Clip For Class III, IV and V Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # PC3 or if you would like a locking hitch pin we have Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, part # e98880.

For a hitch ball you will need to determine what size coupler your trailer uses. For a 2 inch coupler, we have Curt Hitch Ball, part # 40038. For a 2-5/16 inch coupler, we have Tow Ready Hitch Ball, part # 63836.

I have linked instructions for the Draw-Tite Class IV Hitch, part # 41929. I have also linked an FAQ on trailer hitch classes, and hitch install tips.
