Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2011 Chevy HHR


2011 Chevy HHR LT2. I was told Curt and Draw-tite are the same companies. I read on your site that they are not the same. The Curt and Draw-tite are identical hitches and mount the same. What is the truth and difference in the hitches? Thanks!


Expert Reply:

Curt and Draw Tite are not the same companies. Draw Tite and Hidden Hitch are made by the same company so they are basically the same. But Curt is it's own company by itself.

For most vehicles all of the hitch manufacturers will go with a very similar design that uses the same installation points on the vehicle. In the case of your 2011 Chevy HHR all of the hitches do look very similar with a few minor differences.

The hitch I would recommend is the Draw-Tite part # 24756 because it doesn't require the use of a stabilizer strap like the Curt does when carrying a bike rack or cargo carrier. Check out the install video I attached for more info.

For trailer wiring you would want the # 118407 and then for a 1-7/8 in hitch ball # 19256 or # 19258 for a 2 inch hitch ball.
