I am considering the Stealth Hitch with AutowBrake to use for towing a 4,000lb RV trailer. It does not allow for a WDH, but the Palisade has the Sway control with Auto leveling. Hyundai Palisade (2019 - Present). I am very interested if anyone has installed / used it for this purpose.

Thanks for the Post. Super helpful.

Getting my hitch installed this weekend, towing a couple Wave Runner's. Anyone else able to chime in on what RISE they are using?

Brakes on trailer were electric over hydraulic so I think no trailer brakes (5 point wire). Mirrors were fine for my trailer, Towing 1000 miles for a once a year vacation, sure. Mountains, maybe if I used the paddle shifter. Hitch was dealer installed (hangs low under the car, hence the 8" rise on the ball.

Sure, I'd be happy to. I also included a photo of the hitch and the 7 way pin.

I just towed my trailer out of Denver up a long, steep grade and I definitely recommend turning off a/c as the manual suggests. I didn't initially and the temperature rose almost to hot. After turning off, it never rose past half way. Happy trailering!
I'm having my hitch installed next week - I'm curious how you mounted the 7 way connector? I was going to use a Curt 58000 bracket that mounts on the 2" receiver but the installer thinks it may not fit. Also where did you connect the power wire? I've seen recommendations to connect direct to the battery and others to connect in the fuse box. Thanks for sharing your experience.

I literally cannot get over this picture. I've been concerned about towing a pop-up and this is like camper porn. Really makes me want to get all of the towing parts installed on my limited and pull the trigger on that pop-up.

I have a Limited AWD I purchased on February 25th. I purchased a Curt receiver and 4 pin wiring harness from E Trailer for $215 and had both installed for $85 at UHaul in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I am very happy with the results and saved about $100 from the factory hitch. I also like that it's hidden better than the factory hitch. I then had UHaul install a Pilot brake controller and a 7 way pin for $316. Again, I'm very happy with the results. Because of the driver's knee airbag, I had the brake controller installed vertically, attached to the tunnel. The Pilot brake controller was the only one UHaul sells that can be installed vertically and they only install brake controllers that they sell.

I have a 25 foot travel trailer I tow that weighs around 5,000 lbs when loaded. I just towed it for the first time to Cripple Creek, Colorado and was very impressed. There is a grade that begins at an elevation of about 6000 feet and ends at 10,000 feet. I was very impressed with how it towed and the engine temperature did not rise. My previous vehicle, a 2018 Ford Explorer Platinum with the twin turbo V-6, towed the same trailer not much better, but the temperature would rise at times.

Overall, I'm very happy with the Palisade and was pleasantly surprised with how it towed!
