Total Weight of EcoHitch and Draw Tite Hitch for 2016 Subaru Forester


How much does the unit weigh of the X7216 Tork Lift Central Eco Hitch Hidden Trailer Hitch - 2inch Receiveras installed on a 2016 Subaru Forester. Id also like the installed weight of the similar 76182 Draw-Tite Class 3 Trailer Hitch Receiver - Max-Frame product for the same application. Not the towing capacity the actually weight of the installed components.


Expert Reply:

The total weight of the EcoHitch part # 306-X7216 that you referenced is 53 lbs.

The total weight of the Draw Tite hitch part # 76182 you also mentioned is 35 lbs.

I know you didn't ask for this, but I can't help but also feel compelled to you that the towing capacity for each is 3,500 lbs total trailer weight...

The Draw Tite has a 525 lb tongue weight capacity and the Ecohitch has a 350 lb capacity.

So the Draw Tite is lighter, rated higher, and costs less. It would be my recommendation.
