Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Toyota Tundra


I have a 2013 Toyota Tundra and have a question about a couple hitches. My dealer ordered a Draw Tite 75547 for my truck and I think it needed to be a 75527 instead. Can you tell me the difference between the two? Is it just he fastener kit or actual hitch frame dimensions?


Expert Reply:

Well, hopefully they didn't actually order # 75547 because that hitch is for a 2007 to 2011 Honda CR-V and will NOT fit your 2013 Toyota Tundra. The hitch you need is # 75527 like you said. Pretty much everything is going to be different between these 2 hitches with the exception that both have a 2 inch receiver opening, are made of steel, and have a black powder coat finish. Other than that they are completely different sizes.

For the correct hitch, # 75527, if you plan on doing some towing I 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.
