Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite's Tested Tough program provides testing standards far superior to those outlined by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the go-to source for engineering professionals.



Each Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver undergoes extensive fatigue testing and static testing with the ball mount that is either supplied or recommended for use with that particular hitch, thus ensuring results that are applicable to real life use. Fatigue testing is also conducted on hitches rated for use with weight-distribution systems.


In addition, Draw-Tite performs static testing on a simulated automobile, as opposed to the rigid fixture used for SAE testing, resulting in a more true-to-life scenario.

Trailer Hitch Installation - 2012 Chevrolet Camaro

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2012 Chevrolet Camaro

Today on this 2012 Chevrolet Camaro, were going to install a hitch from Draw-Tite, part number 24850. This will also apply to part number 60266 from Hidden Hitch. Ok, now this is what the hitch looks like when its installed on the car. Next, well give you some measurement to help you out in selecting some accessories such as a bike carrier or a cargo carrier. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground is going to be 10 inches and from the center of the hitch pinhole to the outside edge of the bumper is going to be 12 inches. Now, we'll go ahead and show you how the hitch is installed.

The first thing weve done is actually loosen up the bottom of the bumper cover. Its not stated in the instructions, but it makes it a little bit easier to get the hitch back up in there. At this point, we'll go ahead and start installing the hitch on to the car. Now, there are two 8 mm studs and well nuts that are located just behind your rear mufflers on the in-board side of the frame. Now, we'll cut out on the hitch that goes over the nut and hangs on the back, and then we put another flat washer and nut on the remaining threads to tighten the hitch down.

At this point, we can start installing the hitch on to the studs here behind the bumper. Well go ahead and install fasteners going towards the front, right behind the differential. And now you have three bolts here to choose from. You want to make sure that the bolt is not too long or bottoms up against the mouth for differential. While we're test fitting, we found out in this particular case, two washers and count of two washers, so we'll put that into place and then we use washers on the inside to take up the gap and we end up using three.

Now, threads are coming through, so well go ahead and take our locking flange nut and install on the other side. Ok, as long as we have the threads come up the back side of the nut, we got our bolt pushed in all the way and its not touching the mount here so were good to go. Alright, with all our hardware installed, we can go ahead and start tightening it down. Ok, with all our hardware tightened down, well go ahead and torque them down as specified in the instruction. Ok, at this point, with the hitch installed, we can go ahead and reattach the fasteners to the bumper fascia that we loosened up earlier.

And with that, were finished with our install. And there you have it for part number 24850 from Draw-Tite on our 2012 Chevrolet Camaro.

I couldn't be happier with the customer service and the unbelievable fast shipping. I order my hitch on Monday at I installed it Tuesday night. You guys are the best and if I need another hitch I will without a doubt order a hitch from your fine company. 44154

I realize you put the trailer hitch on even though you had the Ground Effects Package. I also have the Ground Effects Package and I was wondering if you had any problems installing the hitch? It looks like the hitch is pushing up on the bottom piece of the ground effects on the back, is this true?

You are correct it is pushing up on the ground effects. It is barely noticeable when you are behind the car. I plan to paint the lower portion of the ground effects black this winter so the trailer hitch disappears.

Had A friend with a lift and watched the video and the installation was a breeze. WE had it done in 20 mins. I have a Swagman XTC-2 type rack and my mountain bike fits great. The pedal is close to the rear bumper but I don't think it will hit. I just remove my pedals for transport. You cant even tell you have a hitch on the car unless you look very close. E trailer had my order shipped in a few days. Great company. 35721

Hitch fitted fine only gripe I have is the kit had no nuts to fit the studs on the car. So I had to find nuts and use washers that I had to make it fit. Not really a big deal my shop is full of nuts and bolts 21504

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2012 Chevy Camaro
  • I do have a solution for carrying bikes with your 2012 Chevy Camaro but no trunk mount bike racks will fit because they cannot be safely mounted. You will need to install a trailer hitch, like # 24850, and use a hitch mounted rack. For a rack, it must be compatible with a Class I trailer hitch and with a Class I you are limited to carrying a maximum of 2 bikes. I recommend the Swagman Titan, # S63400. This rack will fit a Class I, it features anti-sway cradles, it can tilt away from...

  • Will Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch 24850 Fit a 2012 Camaro SS with Manual Transmission
  • The instructions for the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 24850, do state that the hitch will fit all models of the 2012 Chevy Camaro with the exception of a convertible model or any model that has the dealer installed ground effects package. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. If you plan on doing some towing, the correct ball mount is # 3594 for use in the rise position only. For a ball, you can use # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch diameter, or # 19258 for a 2 inch diameter.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2013 Chevy Camaro LT
  • If your 2013 Camaro is not equipped with the factory ground effects package, there are hitches available. For the coupe, the Draw-Tite # 24850 or the Curt # C11122 are available. For the convertible model, Curt offers the # C11222. On the # C11122 Curt specifically states in the instructions that the # 18050 stabilizing strap MUST be used to retain warranty coverage. For the # C11222 hitch, Curt strongly recommends using the strap. In order to avoid needing the strap, I'd recommend...

  • Comparing Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitches for a 2010 Chevy Camaro
  • Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch are sister companies so the hitches as far as specs and installation are identical. The Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 60266 costs more because it comes with a ball mount, hitch pin, and clip. If you are not going to do any towing then go with the Draw-Tite hitch you referenced # 24850. For a bike rack I recommend the Swagman Titan, # S63400. This bike rack is Class I trailer hitch compatible. It has anti-sway cradles, a cable lock, and a rise in the shank for...

  • Can the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch be used on a 2013 Chevy Camaro and Support a Bike Rack
  • I have contacted the hitch manufacturer of the Draw-Tite # 24850, and they stated that it is a fit for your 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, as long as it is not a convertible and does not have a dealer installed ground effects package. Please note that this is rated as a Class I trailer hitch and has a tongue weight limitation of 200 pounds and a gross towing weight limitation of 2000 pounds. It is advised that you check your vehicle owners manual and ensure that your vehicle will be capable...

  • Fit of Draw-Tite Class I Hitch on 2014 Chevy Camaro
  • As long as the 2014 Camaro you are interested in does not have the factory ground effects package, the # 24850 hitch from your 2010 will indeed fit a 2014 model. However, keep in mind that the hardware is not meant to be reused. To obtain replacement hardware, click on the provided link for part # RHK. On the product page you are taken to, there will be a box asking for the hitch part number and a drop down menu for the hitch manufacturer. Type in # 24850 for the hitch item number and Draw-Tite...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2011 Chevy Camaro
  • I am not sure which SUV you mean since trailer hitch # 24850 will only fit 2010 to 2014 Chevy Camaros without ground effects. The 12 inches for clearance on the hitch to bumper and for the rack means that there will likely be contact between the rack or bikes and the car so it is not the best option. I recommend the Rola NV2, # 59508. On it from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest upright arm of the rack is approximately 17-1/2 inches. But the nearest bike will be closer...

  • Will the Rola NV2 Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2012 Chevy Camaro
  • The Rola NV2 bike rack # 59508 is compatible with the Class I trailer hitches for the 2012 Chevy Camaro like # 24850. The bike rack does not have a threaded pin for anti-rattle. What you can do is use anti-rattle device # 93347 to help relieve the movement of the rack in the hitch. I have included a link to a video review of the bike rack for you. A similar rack, the Highland SportWing, # 5801200, does come with a thread pin and will also fit the trailer hitch. I have linked a video...

  • Fit of ProRack # PR8062403 Bike Rack on Draw-Tite Class I Hitch # 24850 on 2010 Chevy Camaro
  • When we installed the Draw-Tite # 24850 on a 2012 Camaro, we found that the hitch pin hole in the receiver is recessed by 12 inches under the vehicle, which is the most I've ever seen. This distance on your 2010 model should be similar. This means that the bike rack you choose would need a hitch pin hole to closest part of rack dimension greater than 12 inches. This would rule out the ProRack # PR8062403 you mentioned. You would not be able to slide the shank into the receiver far enough...

  • Bumper Clearance with a Trailer Hitch Installed on a 2011 Chevy Camaro LS without Ground Effects
  • We do not have a video for Curt trailer hitch # C11122 like we do for Draw-Tite hitch # 24850. But if you look at the instructions for the hitch which I have linked, you can see that the Curt hitch does appear to extend out further but not by much. But the Curt hitch is designed for convertible models not coupe models. If you plan on towing with the 2011 Camaro and have a couple and not convertible then go with ball mount # 3594. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256 and for a 2 inch ball...

  • How to Carry 4 Bikes on a 2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1
  • All of the trailer hitches for the 2012 Chevy Camaro are Class I trailer hitches. What you have read is true. Both bike rack and hitch manufacturers agree that a Class I hitch should only hold 2 bikes on a Class I compatible rack. The issue is that more than 2 bikes would put the weight too far from the receiver creating to much torque and stress on the hitch and vehicle. Like using a cheater bar to loosen a lug nut. So, how do you carry 4 bikes on a 2012 Camaro ZL1? Provided it isn't...

  • Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for 2013 Chevrolet Camaro with Draw-Tite Hitch # 24850
  • In order to determine which hitch mounted bike rack will work with the Draw-Tite Hitch Receiver, # 24850, on your 2013 Chevrolet Camaro, you will need to measure the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer edge of your bumper. I have attached an article which demonstrates this process. The Rola TX-102 2-Bike Rack, # 59400, measures 10-3/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright bar. In order for this rack to fit on your Camaro, the...
