2018 Leaf Trailer Hitch

Wed Apr 11, 2018 2:20 pm

I just got a 2018 and can't find a hitch yet. Curtis made one for the 2017. If one becomes available or is available please let me know.

Might be an invalid listing, as U-Haul sells Curt hitches and the Curt website doesn't have a listing for the 2018 Nissan LEAF yet:

https://www.curtmfg.com/all-products/2018/nissan/leaf/

Probably worth a phone call to Curt, before ordering one from U-Hual, just in case.

The U-haul listing:

(You have to click on "find hitches" even though the 2018 Leaf is specified.)

Curt's site which uhall refers to lists no product for 2018 leaf as of right now.

Yup, but the point I was making is that U-Hual has a listing for a Curt hitch that doesn't seem to exist on the Curt website...

As I said, worth calling Curt first to confirm as I suspect that's a hitch for a 2017 and not the 2018 - although they may be the same.

I'm not arguing. I provided the link purely for informational purposes. I thought it seemed a little too reasonably priced. Someone should compare model numbers with the 2017 Leaf listing.

OK, since you insisted: it's the same part number. So either Nissan told U-Haul (but not Curt) that it's the same mount, or U-Haul goofed.

I'm not arguing either, just giving the OP a heads up that it might not be an accurate listing. Since Curt makes the hitch, they will hopefully be able to give him/her a definitive answer before placing an order with U-Haul.

It may well be that the same hitch will fit the 2018. I hope so.
