2010 Infiniti G37 Trailer Hitch Receiver Comparison


I want to buy a hitch for my 2010 Infiniti G37X Sedan. I see two products offered, one from Drawtite and one from Curt. They appear identical, but it seems the Curt is Made in the Usa. 1 Can you please tell me if that is the only difference? 2 Is there a noticeable difference in fit and finish between the Curt and Draw-Tite? Thank you

The Curt trailer hitch receiver # C11499 is very similar to the Draw-Tite # 24831. The Curt hitch is made in the USA and the Draw-Tite hitch is made in Mexico. These hitches will install in a similar manner and will require trimming of the fascia. The Curt hitch will include the pin and clip, but will also require stabilization strap # 18050 for any non-trailer accessory. This isn't a bad idea, but many people don't like that requirement for their warranty to remain intact.

Both hitches have a black powder coat finish to prevent rust and corrosion.

I've attached links to Class I bike racks and cargo carriers to assist as there are only certain models that will fit with this hitch based on that classification. You will also want to note that even if a bike rack is rated for Class I and has 3 or 4 bikes, you will be limited to 2 bikes with your Class I hitch and it will be noted on the product page.
