Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2003 Chevy S-10 with Stepside


I have a 2003 Chevy S10 with a step bumper. I am considering installing a trailer hitch and want to make sure that I purchase one the correct one. All I will towing is a small kayak trailer with, at most, 4 kayaks. What do you recommend?

The Draw Tite hitch part # 75085 is a fit for your 2003 Chevy S-10 with the sportside non-towing bumper that you have. It would be a great option.

For trailer wiring you then would want the part # 118359.

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.
