Question:

Is the Draw Tite or Curt hitch more rust resistant? Is the 2019 Camry the same as the 2018 Camry as far as installing a hitch since the body style hasnt changed?

The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 36643 and the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11576 which are both a fit for your 2019 Toyota Camry come with what is referred to as a powder coat finish. A powder coat finish is similar to paint in look but is much more weather resistant. I do not have any quantitative data to suggest one is more rust resistant than the other but I can say that Curt uses a more sophisticated powder coating process called aquence technology. This process entails a thorough cleaning, a liquid a-coat, and then a spray powder coat. The Curt trailer trailer hitch is also made in the USA which may speak to the quality of the powder coating process.

The install process between the 2018 and 2019 Toyota Camry will be the exact same. I have attached the install instructions of each hitch for you as well.

Question:

Thanks Conner for your information. The question I still have though is the fact that my Camry is a hybrid. I see that the Draw Tite hitch information on your website states that their hitch is not suitable for a hybrid. The Curt hitch makes no such notation. Also if I go with the Curt hitch, is there an advantage to going with the Curt wiring harness as opposed to the other harness which is also listed for Camrys? Thanks

If your 2019 Toyota Camry is a Hybrid, then you will want to use the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11576 as the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 36643 is not a fit for the Hybrid models as you mentioned. With that being said, Toyota does not recommend towing a trailer with your vehicle and we do not have any trailer wiring harnesses that will allow you to do so.
