What Is The Difference Between The Draw-Tite DT85MR And e93ZR For A 2021 Nissan Rogue?


I am looking at the Draw-Tite and etrailer hitches for my 2021 Nissan Rogue and want to know if one is better than the other. I definitely want a Class III option with the 2 inch receiver, but which do I go with?


Expert Reply:

The Draw-Tite # DT85MR and # e93ZR Class III hitches will be evenly matched in weight capacities for your 2021 Nissan Rogue, so we can disregard the capacities for this comparison. Especially since your Rogue can tow, when properly equipped, up to 1,350 pounds and a maximum tongue weight of 134.9 pounds.

The big differences will be the install. Neither require any drilling or trimming to get attached, but the Draw-Tite will need 6 bolts to attach to the frame and the hitch will only need 4, so it is an easier install. Both hitches will also sit at 11-3/4" from the ground to the inside top of the hitch receiver opening, but the Draw-Tite will stick out further. When measured from the end of the bumper, the Draw-Tite measures 4-1/2" and the hitch measures 6-1/2", so it will be slightly less visible when not in use.

With all that being said, I recommend going with our American made Class III hitch # e93ZR.
