Best 2019 Dodge Journey Trailer Hitch Options


Hey everybody Clayton here at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to be checking out the best trailer hitch receiver options for your 2019 Dodge Journey. Looking at three of our options here for your Dodge Journey we're going to have our etrailer Class Three, our Curt Class Three, and our Draw-Tite Class Three. Now between these three options, I would definitely go for the Draw-Tite just because of a couple of reasons. Now I'll get to that here in a minute. Now to begin, let's look at some of the differences between our three options.

Now, our etrailer and our Curt are going to be very similar and the Draw-Tite's going to be the odd one out between those two. Looking at the Draw-Tite, you're going to notice this bracket. This bracket is going to be for your wiring. This is going to work with four, five, six, and seven poles. You can find all the correct bracketing to work with us here at etrailer.

Our etrailer and our Curt are not going to have that option, and that's one thing that I really like about the Draw-Tite. Now taking a look at the pin hole openings, where all.these are all going to have that 5/8 spindle opening. But what sets the Draw-Tite apart is it is going to have a second hole, And this is going to be for a J-Pin stabilization device. And another main difference between these three is going to be a safety chain loops. These are going to be a rolled style and the other two are going to be a plate style.

Then there is another difference between the Draw-Tite when it comes to installation. We're going to have one less bolt when it comes to installing the Draw-Tite, but we're not going to have to do any drilling, cutting, or welding, just like the other two. And another difference is going to be the powder coating. Our etrailer is going to have a matte black powder coat finish. Our Curt is going to have a high gloss powder coat finish, and our Draw-Tite is going to have a semi-gloss powder coat finish.

And that really just comes down to preference if that's what you're deciding on. Now our customer did go with the Draw-Tite. This is going to be another difference, we're going to be taking a look at right here. This is going to sit a little bit lower and further out compared to our Curt or our etrailer which is going to sit a little bit higher and tighter to our rear bumper. But personally, I like this more just because if we ever do need to access our spare tire we're going to have a little bit more room to do that. And I think it just looks more complete on the back of our vehicle once you add the wiring. Now we can check out some of the similarities between our three options. Our three options are all going to be made out of steel which is really strong and durable for a long time. They're all going to have powder coating so that's going to be nice. It's going to help protect our hitches from rust and corrosion. They're all going to have that Class Three which is going to be a two inch by two inch receiver tube opening. And they're all going to accept the same pin. They're just going to need be that 5/8 pin. Then our other similarity is going to be our weight ratings. Now I'm talking about tongue weight that's going to be the amount pushing straight down on our receiver tube opening. When I talk about trailer weight rating, that's going to be the amount our hitch can pull. You want to keep in mind that's going to be the weight of the trailer, and the load on the trailer. Now all three options are going to give us a 4,000 pound towing capacity, and a 400 pound tongue weight rating. And they're all going to be rated to use with weight distribution, but that is not going to increase or change those towing capacities. All in all, you really can't go wrong with any of these options. Like I said, I would definitely go with the Draw-Tite first simply because of the wiring bracket, the J-Pin stabilization hole, and it's one less bolt that we have to install in-between our Curt and our etrailer. I'd go with the etrailer just because I prefer the finish. And that's going to do it for our look at the best trailer hitch receiver options for your Dodge Journey..
