Looking to add the factory hitch 19244236 but the description does not indicate if this is a Class III?

Has anyone purchased this part?

I have a 2010 Premium AWD. Bought it 10 months old, but the original owner went all out with extras. It has the tow/hitch package but I honestly don't know what it is, as I have never towed anything in my life.

If I remember, I will take a look at the Hitch tomorrow and see if I can see anywhere where it designates the Class, and get back to you.

Here are several hitches to choose from. These are pretty easy to install, even for the novice. Just watch the video at the below link. You can save hundreds by doing it yourself.

Will the factory hitch cover part 19172271 work with the etrailer hidden or drawtite hitch?

I see no reason why not. I believe the after markets, make theirs to the same dimensions as the GM hitch. It only makes sense.

great links, sube---i'll be doing this myself soon. the video is great, but what about the wiring harness? i'll likely need a 4-pin connector, but it inconveniently skips that whole part.

Sorry for the omission. I didn't even think to mention that because I'm only using my hitch for a bike rack. I did find these though. The connector for the SRX is snapped onto the inside of the rear fascia, near the edge of the cut-out for the fascia door. Wiring harness installation instructions are contained in the second link. Tried to find a video too, but had no luck. There's a link on the website to ask product specific questions as well.

In the video for the hitch installation they mention disconnecting a wiring harness to access the weldnut on the driver's side. In my case I didn't find this to be necessary. I simply moved the harness to the side.

The wiring harness is super easy, or at least the one that came with my Curt hitch. Popped the factory blue cap out, popped in the harness connector. Zip tied up the slack. Done. :D

if you look at Sube's links for the harness, one is much more "complicated" and expensive. it doesn't seem necessary to me, particularly since i'll have LED lights. was yours the more simple version?

It's not. The more expensive one has a built-in circuit breaker, which you don't really need. Those were just the search results when you select "SRX". Both wiring harnesses below will work. For the extra buck, I'd go with the one with the housing.
