Hitch Receiver and Towing Set Up for a 2021 Kia Soul


I have a 2021 Kia Soul - can I get a class 2 trailer hitch 2 for that vehicle?


Expert Reply:

I can recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch item # DT25GR. This class III hitch receiver is custom fit and bolts directly to your Kia's frame with included hardware. It has a maximum gross trailer weight of 2,000 lbs and a maximum tongue weight of 300 lbs. It has a 2" receiver opening which allows you to use a wider range of accessories than you could with a 1-1/4" opening.

It also has a wide range of accessory options like the Swagman Chinook Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount item # S64683.

If you are going to be towing or want to add lights to your accessories you are going to need a wiring harness. I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector item # 118813 if you don't have LED lights. Or the Tekonsha Upgraded Modulite Vehicle Wiring Harness Kit w/ 4-Pole Trailer Connector and Installation Kit item # 119147KIT if you do have LED lights.

To tow a trailer you will need the Draw-Tite Drawbar for 1-1/4" Hitches - 4" Rise - 10" Long - 2,000 lbs item # 3594 and the 2" Hitch Ball item # 19258 or the 1-7/8" Hitch Ball item # 19256.

You will want to verify with your owner's manual what your Kia's actual towing and tongue weight capacity is.
