Will a Trailer Hitch on a 2012 Range Rover Evoque Require Trimming or Interfere with Camera/Sensors


I just purchased a 2012 Range Rover Evoque and am looking for a good hitch. Can you provide me some further details on your hitch and wiring package - price, mounting instructions, compatibility with Evoque cameras and sensors, fitment with bumper and bumper cover, any cutting required, clearance with muffler, etc. Do you have any photos of the unit installed on an Evoque? Thanks very much for any details you can provide.

We do have the Curt trailer hitch for the 2012 Range Rover Evoque, # C13128. There is no drilling required for installation but the exhaust will need to be temporarily lowered for installation and there is some minor fascia and heat shield trimming required. I have included a link to the installation instructions so you can see a little more detail on the trimming that is needed.

There are also some lovely pictures in the hitch instructions that show the finished result of the installation. The hitch receiver will exit below the rear fascia. The installation of the hitch would not interfere with the camera or sensors on the vehicle. When installed it will not be out far enough for the camera or sensors to pick it up.

For wiring you would use # 118624. The wiring will not interfere with the operation of the camera or sensors.

To complete your towing set up I recommend the etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It includes 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and a carrying bag.
