Hi jsyteng,
Did this CURT hitch work for you?

I see that you have a Disco with 3rd row seats; I am in the process of fitting this and have found that the hitch rests on the silencer/muffler boxes on both sides of the vehicle, which will not work.

Also I cannot refit the spare wheel below the car

How did you fitters get this to work?

Thanks,
KevLR

CURT tRaioler hitch on a Disco Sport with 3rd seats

Anybody get this CURT hitch to work on a Discovery Sport with 3rd row seats?

I am in the process of fitting this and have found that the hitch rests on the silencer/muffler boxes on both sides of the vehicle, which will not work.

Also I cannot refit the spare wheel below the car

Anybody tried this successfully?

Thanks,

This may work on a 2-row seat Discovery Sport, as 2-3 members of the Discover Forum have indicated, but it does not work on my 3rd Row seat version, despite assurances from the "technicians" at the company from whom I purchased it.

There would have to be major cuts/alterations made to the hitch otherwise it rests on the silencer/muffler boxes on each side.

There would very possibly have to be major cuts/alterations made to the body work bumper cover(s) in addition to the 2 slits mentioned in Step 17.

But there is the ridiculous situation with the spare wheel which makes this all impractical and thus totally unsatisfactory. With this hitch installed, the only wheel which will fit under there is the small, temporary tire/wheel which is only 6 ½ inches wide. There is a maximum gap there of 7 ½ inches so there no way that any other normal wheel will fit in there, let alone one of my 19 inch wheels at some 10 inches wide.

I sent it back.

2016. Also, I just fitted the LR Hitch myself, $875 (incl shipping...gulp) but it does the job and you can fit any size wheel under there now.
