Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid for Bike Rack


I have a 2018 Toyota Camry Hybred and I need a trailer hitch. I will be hauling two bicycles. Im getting confusing information between the draw tight and the curt. Some say the draw tight in not compatible with the 2018 hybred. Which hitch will work best? Which is the easiest to install? Which will perform the best? Do you have a recommendation?


Helpful Expert Reply:

For your 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid, the Curt # C11576 hitch is a confirmed fit and my recommendation. It is a 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver that has a 200 lb tongue weight rating but will still require stability strap # 18050. All non-trailer loads like bike racks and cargo carriers require this. Failure to properly support these loads will void your hitch warranty from Curt.

The Draw-Tite # 36643 is not a fit for your hybrid model according to the manufacturer so at this time the Curt hitch is your best option.

This Class II hitch with 1-1/4 inch receiver will be compatible with many bike rack options. I've linked the page to all your options to assist. I recommend the Thule Doubletrack Pro XT Bike Rack # TH92BJ which is a very popular option for your vehicle. This will include the hitch and bike locks to deter theft and will safely transport bikes up to 35 lbs each.
