Best Hidden Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2019 Dodge Durango  


which trailer hitch do you recommend for a 2019 Dodge Durango?


Expert Reply:

My favorite trailer hitch for your 2019 Dodge Durango is the Draw Tite part # DT38MR because it installs behind the rear fascia cut out designed for a hitch so that when not in use you can cover it. See picture.

I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well. For trailer wiring you'd want the part # 118617 too.

If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.

will there have to be any fabrication done to factory parts?

Yes, to install the Draw-Tite # 76196 on your Durango you will need to remove the factory impact structure (the hitch will take its place in terms of protection) and trim some bumper fascia to allow room for the receiver.

Will the cover still fit with the hitch on? Or will it have to stay off?

The rear fascia panel can indeed snap back on with the hitch in place. This allows you to completely cover up the hitch receiver when you're not actually using it.
