Best Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2022 Toyota Highlander That Will Allow Spare Tire to Remain


Suggested 2 hitch for 2022 Highlander Hybrid Limited AWD that will allow spare tire to remain under chasis


Expert Reply:

There are two trailer hitch receivers that fit all models (except the XSE) of the 2022 Toyota Highlander and allow a spare tire to remain, and both are from Draw-Tite:

- Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT84MR

- Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT65MR

I verified both fits with the manufacturer for you, and Between the two, the best option due to its fully concealed crosstube that will ensure only the receiver is showing for a more streamlined look, is the Draw-Tite # DT84MR.

I did want to mention the # DT65MR as an option though, just in case you were towing quite a bit and used a weight distribution system. That's the because the # DT84MR is not rated for weight distribution but the # DT65MR is rated for, and can be used with, weight distribution.

The only other thing you might need if you plan on towing - with either hitch - is a wiring harness (if you do not have the factory tow package). You'll need a 4-way if your trailer does not have electric brakes, or a 7-way if it does have electric brakes. The correct fits for your '22 Highlander are the following:

- 4-Way: T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # TK99FR & Mounting Bracket # 18144

- 7-Way: Vehicle Wiring Harness w/ Brake Controller Adapter - 7 Way Trailer Connector # TK57VR & Mounting Bracket # PK12711U
