Does Hitch Receiver Tube of etrailer Hitch # e98853 Taper Narrower


Hi etrailer Team! Bought this for my 2020 Toyota Sienna earlier this year. Installed easily and was great for carrying all four family bikes all summer long. Will recommend your products to my friends. Now that Winter is approaching, I wanted to get a hitch receiver cover that inserts into the tube. I learned recently that Toyota OEM tubes narrow/taper at the end. Is the etrailer E98853 uniform throughout the tube? Or does it taper like the Toyota parts do?


Expert Reply:

The hitch tube of the etrailer hitch # e98853 that you referenced does not taper at all. It is 2 inch by 2 inch all the way through it. That said if you are worried about corrosion your best option would be to keep the hitch opening as clean as possible. Any type of hitch cover may cause moisture to accumulate and potentially cause more corrosion.
