Syncro and Vanagon Trailer Hitch
The Burley Motorsports high clearance trailer hitch is made with the highest ground clearance possible while still using the stock Vanagon bumper. Our incredibly strong hitch was modeled after the “South African” VW hitch. But ours is improved with the standard 2” square receiver so that all standard trailer hitch receiver accessories easily fit with our model. We achieve exceptional ground clearance by putting our receiver through the bottom of the bumper to maximize height which is very important when traveling up steep driveways, hills or extremely bumpy terrain. All mounting hardware and installation instructions necessary for proper installation (see DOWNLOADS below).
This product is sent out unpainted. It is just too heavy for shipping carriers to get it across the country without scratching the finish.
As always, we are proud to say that this product is made Burley, right here in the USA!
Note: We also have models available for the fiberglass Vanagon bumper. Please see High Clearance Trailer Hitch for Fiberglass Bumper.
*This will fit all with engines and engine conversions, it bolts directly inside the frame rails of the van /Doka – not the engine or engine carrier bars.
**This will fit all standard Vanagon bumpers, including the GoWesty Bumper that comes with no trailer hitch.
