Parts Needed to Tow Small Trailer with 2013 Dodge Journey


We wanted to get a hitch installed and a small trailer for picking up building supplies from Lowes. What size trailer and where could we get a hitch installed reasonably.

We can help you get setup with basically everything you'd need to tow with your 2013 Dodge Journey but we do not offer small trailers like you'd need so you'd need to find a local trailer shop for that.

For a hitch though the Curt part # C13201 is a great option with plenty of capacity and is easy to install if you wanted to tackle it yourself. I attached an install video for more info on this as well.

For trailer wiring you'd then want the part # 118536 for if your Journey has LED taillights or part # 118567 for if you have standard style lights. I attached install videos for these too.

Since you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.
