How To Prevent Hitch Scraping on Pavement with 2019 Toyota Sienna  


My hitch that is installed tends to bottom out with some of the transistions from roads to drives gutters. Is there an easy way to raise the back a couple of inches to give some additional clearance?


Expert Reply:

The 2019 Toyota Sienna is a low ground clearance vehicle so there isn't much that can be done about a hitch like the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98837 scraping or bottoming out. That said, you can protect the hitch with an option like the Roadmaster Rollaway Trailer Hitch Protector part # RM-050 and that's what I recommend.

I don't recommend lifting the vehicle to give more ground clearance as this will affect the ride quality and suspension geometry which can lead to other issues down the line.
