Hitch Tube Length on Draw Tite Hitch # 5350 and Curt # 13702


Hello! I am looking for a trailer hitch for my RV and am trying to decide between the Curt 13702 and the Draw-Tite 5350. Both have very similar specifications, with the only real difference I can see being that the 13702 fits frames 18-51inch while the 5350 fits frames 24-56. My frame members are 34inch apart, so either should work. There is a $50 price difference between the two hitches, with the Draw-Tite costing more. That being said, I have two questions: 1 Given that either hitch should fit my application, is there any reason I would want to choose the more expensive Draw-Tite over the Curt? 2 No measurement is shown from the rear-most face of the cross tube to the rear-most surface of the receiver. In other words, how far does the receiver tube protrude from the cross tube? Is it possible for you to get this measurement for me for both hitches? I imagine the distance is the same for each, but I dont want to assume. Ive attached a couple of pictures showing the dimension I am looking for one 2D, one 3D. Thank you!

I checked with Curt and they told me that the distance you are looking for on the Curt hitch part # C13702 is 6-3/8 inches and on the Draw Tite # 5350 is 5-3/8 inches.
