Does the Class II Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Install the Same as the Class III on a 2012 Kia Sorento


Is the installation the same as in the video for the 2inch receiver from the same company ? Thanks

The installation of Draw-Tite trailer hitches # 75684 and # 36511 will be very similar. You can use the video as a guide but make sure to follow the instructions for the Class II hitch which I have linked for you.

I do recommend the Class III trailer hitch though for a few reasons. First, the 2 inch receiver and more stout construction provided a higher tongue weight capacity. Second, there are many more accessory options that fit a 2 inch receiver than there are for a 1-1/4 inch receiver.

If you go with the Class II, 1-1/4inch hitch, and plan on doing some towing, the correct ball mount is # 36051, and you can use pin and clip # PC2. For a 2 inch diameter ball use # 19258. For a 1-7/8 inch diameter ball use # 19256.

If you go with the Class III, 2 inch trailer hitch you can use etrailer ball mount kit # 989900, which comes with 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin and clip, and a carrying bag.
