Can 2004 Toyota Prius Be Used To Tow Small Trailer With Rickshaw In It?


Hello, I am interested in purchasing your product and using it for towing from my 2004 Prius. My end goal is to purchase a small trailer to attach to the hitch. Inside that trailer, I would like to put a rickshaw. That rickshaw will be standing in the small trailer. I am still not sure what type of trailer to use for this. If you have any recommendations, feel free. Do you believe all of this be possible with the purchase of your hitch? Thank you!

I would be happy to help!

The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11468 you were looking at for your 2004 Toyota Prius is a perfect option for towing a small trailer carrying your Rickshaw bike. This hitch has a 200lb tongue weight rating and 2000lb trailer weight rating so you will want to use a light weight trailer.

To tow a trailer you will also need a vehicle wiring harness # 118505, drawbar # C45521, 1-7/8" hitch ball # A-80 or 2" hitch ball # A-82, and a locking hitch pin and clip # C23517 to keep the ball mount locked to your trailer hitch receiver.

When it comes to the trailer itself you will need to measure the overall width and length of your Rickshaw. A trailer like the Detail K2 Mighty Multi Utility Trailer # K2MMT4X6 would be a great option as it only weighs 325lbs so you will have no issues towing it with your Prius, and once done it folds up so it will not take up much space.

If your Rickshaw is wider than 4' just let me know.

I included videos of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
