Tongue Weight Capacity of Trailer Hitch Receiver on a 2017 Nissan Rogue  

Question: Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2inch - e98846 Is there any requirement for a strap for non-trailer loads or can it support the Maximum tongue weight: 525 lbs without additional supports and/or voiding the warranty?


Expert Reply:

The trailer hitch receiver, part # E98846, does not require a support strap for its warranty. The hitch itself is rated and can handle up to 525 pounds of tongue weight but you also need to make sure your vehicle can.

I looked up an owner's manual for the 2017 Nissan Rogue, which the # E98846 does fit, and it lists the vehicle's maximum tongue weight at 110 pounds. You're always limited by your lowest rated component, which is usually the vehicle itself, so adding a higher rated hitch will not increase the overall capacity.

I've linked a video of the Curt hitch being installed on a Rogue for you so you can see the process. It's the same design as the hitch.
