Will the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75751 Fit a 2012 Ford Escape XLT w/ Factory 1-1/4 Hitch


I have a 2012 Escape XLT with a fatory 1.25inch hitch and want to install a Draw Tite #75751 2inch hitch. Can it be accomplished with the factory hitch still in place? If not, do I have to remove the bumper to remove the factory hitch? Thanks.


Expert Reply:

The factory trailer hitch on your 2012 Ford Escape will need to remain in place to install the new Draw-Tite 2 inch hitch # 75751. The installation instructions, linked for you, are separated out for models with the OEM hitch and a separate set for models that do not have the OEM hitch.

To complete your towing set up I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It includes 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. And if you need trailer wiring use # 118551. I have linked a video showing installation for you.
