Comparison of Draw-Tite and EcoHitch Trailer Hitch Receivers on a 2011 Subaru Outback  


I have a 2011 Subaru Outback and am comparing two products you offer. The Draw-Tite Max Frame 75673 and the EcoHitch Hidden 306-X7162 I like the fact that the EcoHitch hides the cross bar. I think it looks a little better. But its also quite a bit more money, and it doesnt really have many reviews. The Draw-Tite has tons of reviews and everybody raves about it. The lower towing capacity isnt an issue because my vehicle maxes at 2700 anyway. Do you have any recommendation?

You're basically hit the nail on the head with the main differences between the Draw-Tite, part # 75673, and the EcoHitch, part # 306-X7162. The Draw-Tite is less expensive and is a great hitch, but the EcoHitch has a cleaner more OEM look to it. And you're also correct that there's no reason to worry about the weight capacity since you're limited to what your 2011 Subaru Outback can handle anyway.

Personally, I like the look of the EcoHitch and that's what I would go with. And don't let the lack of reviews draw you away. We haven't been carrying EcoHitch on our site near as long as Draw-Tite so it isn't really apples to apples.
