How Difficult is a Hitch Install on a 2018 Toyota Camry


How difficult is it to install a hitch on a 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid LE?


Expert Reply:

We currently have two trailer hitch receiver options for your 2018 Toyota Camry LE Hybrid which are the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11576 and the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 36643. Both of them will install in a similar way and the difficulty will be about the same. If you take a look at the attached installation instructions for each hitch, that will give you a better idea of what is required. However, the installation on a hybrid model may vary from what is shown.

According to Curt, the install time for part # C11576 is between 60-120 minutes. You will need sockets, ratchet, torque wrench, die grinder or tin snips, and a power drill plus bits. According to Draw-Tite, the install time for part # 36643 is around 60-90 minutes and you will need the same basic tools listed about. With that being said either hitch will be a tad more challenging than the average install and I do recommend professional installation if you do not feel comfortable. Your local RV service center should be able to install this hitch for you.

If you can tell me what you will be using the hitch for I would be happy to provide additional recommendations for you but if you will be using the Curt hitch for any non-towing applications like a bike rack, you will need to use the support strap part # 18050 to abide by their warranty.
