Hitch Needed for 1995 Nissan Maxima

Question:

I am looking at buying this hitch from NAPA. They say it will fit my 1995 Nissan Maxima GLE. Will it fit this vehicle like your video shows it bolting onto the newer Altima?

The hitch you referenced, the Draw-Tite Class I Receiver, part # 24796 fits the 2009-2011 Maxima or the 2007-2011 Altima only.

For your 1995 Maxima, I would recommend the Draw-Tite Class I Receiver, part # 24686 or the Curt Class I, part # 11255. The Draw-Tite model attaches to the vehicle under the bumper and the trunk pan. I prefer the way the Curt receiver attaches, as it uses two additional attachment points to the bumper structure. Because of the stronger attachment, the Curt model provides an additional 500 lbs of towing capacity (Please check your owners manual for the towing capacity) .

If you are planning on towing a trailer, you will also need the trailer wiring harness, part # 119178KIT, a ball mount part # 3593, a pin and clip part # PC2, and the appropriate sized trailer ball. For a 2 inch ball, use part # 19258 or if a 1-7/8 inch ball is needed, use part # 19257.

I will include links to the installation details for both hitches, as well as a link to a video showing how to install the wiring. The video shows the harness being installed on a different vehicle, but the process would be similar for your Maxima.
