Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for 2018 X5 with M Package  


I have a 2018 BMW X5 with the M package and need a hitch and wiring for towing small trailer, what would I need?


Expert Reply:

For a hitch that is confirmed as a fit for your 2018 BMW X5 with the M package we have the Curt part # 13077 which will fit and work great. It's a 2 inch hitch and only the hitch opening hangs down below the bumper so we recommend it highly for your vehicle. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

Then for trailer wiring you'd want the no-splice kit from Tekonsha ZCI part # 119250KIT that will work great and install easily. I attached a video that shows the harness installed on a similar 2015 X5 as well.

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.
