What is Needed to Tow a Trailer with a 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid


Towing a Trailer Probably Get a Lot of These Questions lol Hi There, Was wondering what i would need - and if its even possible - to set up my 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid LE with a tow package. All Id want to tow is maybe one of those smaller U-Haul trailers for motorcycles 3,500lbs at most. Thank you in advance!

We do get a lot of questions like this. It's exactly what we're here for. And also we do have the parts you need to tow a trailer with your 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid. However, I also checked the online copy of your owner's manaul and it states that your vehicle is not rated to tow. I recommend verifying with your manual or talking to Toyota before towing to find out if you can tow a trailer, and how heavy it can be if you're able to tow.

With that being said, if you determine your Camry is able to tow a trailer I recommend the Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver, part # 36643, with the recommended ball mount, part # 36071. The ball mount includes a hitch pin and clip but you need to add a hitch ball like # 19258 for a 2 inch or # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch.

You also need a wiring harness and can use part # 118763. It plugs into a connetor in the trunk of your Camry. You'll need to remove some floor covering to find the connector though. Then there's a wire that gets run to the car's battery.
