What Hitch Receiver Do You Recommend for My 2021 Ford EcoSport for Towing a Small Trailer?


What hitch do you recommend to tow my 2021 Ford EcoSport? I plan on towing my small trailer


Expert Reply:

For a great hitch that will be able to accommodate a small trailer on your 2021 Ford EcoSport, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class II - 1-1/4" # C12188. The Curt hitch will provide your vehicle with up to 3,500 pounds of gross tow weight capacity and is manufactured in the U.S.A.

For brake light and turn signal functionality, I recommend the Curt Powered Tail Light Converter with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # C59236. The Curt connector installs directly to your battery to avoid overloading your vehicle's electrical system. Along with the trailer wiring harness, I recommend the Curt Class II Drawbar - 2-5/8" Rise, 3-1/4" Drop # C45521 if you need a ball mount for the tow.

I went ahead and attached videos of the installation process (for the hitch and wiring harness) and a product overview (for the ball mount) to this answer.
