Can Trailer Hitch be Used on Vehicles with Factory Hitch


Are the factory hitch welded to the Vehicle ? I on a 2015 Nissan Marano and it came with an inch and a half hitch already installed I removed all the bolts and the hitch still will not move. Are your hitches only for vehicles that do not come with factory installed hitches ?


Expert Reply:

Yes, some factory trailer hitches are welded onto vehicles, which is likely the case with your 2015 Nissan Murano. We don't have any type of specific list of vehicles with welded-on hitches but it unfortunately sounds like this is what is happening for you.

In regards to fit, aftermarket hitches such as the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75952 and Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13205 which fit your '15 Murano are designed to fit vehicles that do not already have a factory hitch. On occasion a hitch can be removed and a new one installed, but this is mostly on pickup trucks; sometimes there will also be an aftermarket hitch that fits under the factory hitch.
