Availability of Trailer Hitch with 2 Inch Receiver for 2013 Lexus GS 350  


Hi, I have a GS350 F Sport, and I would love to find a hitch with a 2inch receiver. You have a hidden hitch and a draw-tite that will fit - any possibility of inquiring about getting one made with a 2inch receiver? Id prefer that over an adapter. Thanks

The Draw-Tite Class II trailer hitch # 36535 has been discontinued but is a fit for your 2013 Lexus GS 350. The only current fit we have is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # C11366 so that is what I recommend for your hitch receiver.

There isn't a 2 Inch hitch receiver for your vehicle currently and I don't recommend using an adapter like the # HTAD simply because using an adapter will cut your tongue weight capacity in half. The tongue weight rating of the vehicle determines how much weight can be loaded on a hitch receiver and an adapter will reduce that rated capacity.

Even with a 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" receiver opening you will be able to do some light towing such as towing a light trailer or carry a bike rack or cargo carrier, as long as you do not exceed the weight capacity of the hitch or your vehicle, whichever is less. You will need to use the correct 1-1/4" shank on the accessory versus using an adapter.

I have linked to a FAQ about trailer hitch receiver sizes and a review of trailer hitch classes for your reference.
