Trailer Hitch Bumper Clearance for 2018 Lexus RX 350


Can you tell me what trailer hitches have the best bumper clearance for a 2018 Lexus RX 350? I am trying to use this for a bike rack and want the most clearance both from the ground to the hitch and the hitch to the bumper.


Expert Reply:

Both of the trailer hitches that fit your 2018 Lexus RX 350 will give you the same amount of clearance. The Draw-Tite # 75540 and Curt # C13272 that fit your Lexus each have approximately 15-1/2 inches of clearance from the ground to the top of the hitch and 5 inches from the hitch pin hole to the edge of your bumper, as you can see by the accompanying diagram.

These Class III hitches have a 2 inch receiver and are the same in virtually every way, including the installation; the biggest difference between the two is that the Curt # C13272 is made in the USA.

I have added links to videos of both hitches being installed on a Lexus RX 350 for you to take a look at.
