Bolting up a trailer hitch to your vehicle gives you the ability to haul trailers, boats, and even cargo carriers everywhere you need to go. Shopping for a hitch, however, can be a pretty daunting task. With so many different trailer hitch brands out there, it can be easy to get caught up deciding which way to go. We'll try to make it easier by showing off two popular hitch brands, and the factors you should consider when choosing between a Draw-Tite or Curt hitch.

Curt Hitches - Innovation and Durability

Curt Heavy Duty HitchInnovation is the hallmark of Curt Manufacturing's products. From the standard Curt Hitch to the heavy-duty Curt Q5 5th Wheel Hitch, every hitch features high-tech robot welding and advanced features that push hitch design to the next level. The result: high towing strength, reliable performance, and a hitch that's guaranteed to last as long as your vehicle. When you're putting your towing rig together for the first time, you'll need some extra accessories to do the job right. Luckily, Curt offers the full gamut of towing gear, from Curt Reflex Brake Controllers to Heavy Duty Ball Mounts.

Curt Hitches are built to last, with top-quality steel and rust-preventing powder coat finishes. Plus, their trailer hitches come in Class I-V ratings, with a towing capacity of up to 12,000 pounds. Curt stands by their products, and backs their hitches with a Lifetime Warranty.

Curt Hitches are also relatively pain-free to install, as you'll see in this video:

Draw-Tite Hitches - Quality Craftsmanship

Draw Tite HitchWith a Draw-Tite Hitch on board, you'll make easy work out of towing trailers and other heavy cargo. Draw-Tite Trailer Hitches are built on over fifty years of experience, and they're made with the same care and patience that's gone into them since day one. Draw-Tite also grows with changing technology, taking on such state-of-the-art processes as plasma/laser cutting and E-Coat finishes. They also use this advanced technology to fully lab-test their hitches' performance, structural strength, and safety. The result: an all-welded trailer hitch that's ready for the long haul.

Draw-Tite Hitches come in the full range of Class I-V ratings up to 10,000 lbs GTW, so you can find the perfect hitch for your towing needs. They also make hitch receivers that mount to the rear impact bar on certain trucks. And like Curt, all Draw-Tite Hitches are backed with a Lifetime Warranty.
