Parts Needed to Tow Boat Trailer with 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport


I have a 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. I’m about to geg a boat that weighs around 2000lbs. My vehicle is not ready to tow anything. What all do I need to purchase? Is it easy to install everything my self?


Expert Reply:

First thing you need to tow a trailer with your 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is a trailer hitch. Which for that I recommend the hitch part # e98841 which is a 2 inch hitch with plenty of capacity and installs very easily. See install video attached.

For trailer wiring you'd then want the Teksonsha kit part # 118571 which also installs easily and comes with a very reliable converter box.

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.
