Tongue Weight Capacity of Trailer Hitch # E98853


Specifications say it has a 500 lb tongue weight. One of your customers who rated and installed the hitch on their vehicle, said the tag on the hitch said tongue weight max was 350 lb. I need to verify which is correct. My vehicle is a 2019 toyota sienna XLE AWD. I will be towing a 3000lb trailers and using a cargo carrier at other times. Thanks

The Trailer Hitch Receiver # E98853 that you referenced has a tongue weight capacity of 525 pounds (and a towing weight limit of 3,500 pounds). There was a short time where the stickers that came on this particular hitch were incorrect with regards to the tongue weight limit, showing the lighter spec that you mentioned. This has since been resolved and included stickers are now accurate.

Basically the tongue weight capacity on this hitch has always been 525 pounds but for a short while the included sticker/label on the hitch itself was wrong.

I have attached an installation video of this hitch on your 2019 Sienna that you can use for reference.
