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.


etrailer.com Technical Support

At etrailer.com we're committed to the products we sell, and to our customers. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan, we'll be installing the DrawTite hitch, part number 36320. This is what our hitch will look like once it's installed. Next, we'll go ahead and give you a couple measurements to assist you selecting accessories for your new hitch. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper is 3-1/2". From the top of the receiver tube opening to the ground is 12-1/2". This will assist you selecting accessories such as a ball mount, bike rack, or cargo carrier.

Now we'll go ahead with installation. Now to begin our install, we'll first note, each process we do on one side, we're going to repeat identically on the opposite side. Both sides have 3 attachment points. These attachments points are built into the frame by the manufacturer. We'll actually be removing the manufacturer's hardware and reusing it to secure our hitch. Starting at the rear of the vehicle, we'll remove the 2 rear outside shackle bolts that hold the leaf spring to the frame.

Then moving forward of the leaf spring on the frame, we'll remove the frame bolt. Once we've done this to both sides, we're now ready to install our hitch. It's a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you hold the hitch while you install your fasteners. As we bring the hitch up to the vehicle, we'll feed the passenger side over the leaf spring first, and then rotate the hitch on the driver's side towards the rear axle. As we rotate towards the rear axle, we'll push the hitch above the leaf spring, and then rotate it back towards the bumper. As we rotate back towards the bumper, we'll raise it up into position and tie it to the frame.

There we can reinstall the manufacturer's hardware, the 2 leaf spring bolts and the 1 frame bolt, securing our hitch to the frame. We'll install each fastener finger tight until we have them all in place. We'll go ahead and tighten it down, and then torque to specifications, as indicated in the instructions. Now with our hitch secured and torqued to specifications, we're ready to hit the road. That does it for the install of the DrawTite 1-1/4" receiver tube hitch, part number 36320, on our 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan. .

I usually install my hitches my self. I always get them from you guys. I was in Fl when I bought the hitch so I didnt have tools with me, so I Had a mechanic do it for me. He said he might charge me up to $100 to do so cause they are always a nightmare. When I came back he charged me $35. He said it was the easiest one he ever did. He obviously had not used you guys for his products.Its been on a year and the fit and finish are still perfect. Ive learned to expect that from you. Like your products, your price and service. Keep it up.

Chrysler Town & Country


The installation would have been easier with 2 people ( as the video suggests), but I was able to get it done using strategically placed car jacks. It took about 1 1/2 hours to install it by myself. Perfect fit on my T&C and it works great. 149800


Comments

Thanks for the follow up, Rachael. Hitch, wiring, etc. are all still working great. Glad we got it!

Got this hitch to pull a small trailer with the families bicycles. We want to ride at more parks further from the house so this makes that possible. E-Trailer was wonderful through the whole process of buying this hitch and the installation and fit was exactly as advertised. The installation video was great. I could not be happier with the whole experience. Thanks E-trailer. 31256

When I first started installing this hitch I thought, wow, this is going to be easy (compared to other hitches I have had to install on other cars). But one hole on one side was off by 1/4". I can't imagine that Chrysler got that off, so I can only assume it was the hitch. I did not want to take it back down and drill, so a crow bar was put into service. Ever try to bend a thick piece of metal? I did get it, and probably only 15 minutes longer than should have... but it was frustrating. What is not frustrating is the ease of buying from etrailer. Great communication, great prices, easy! 71864

I would have given this hitch an excellent if it wasn't for the fact that I had to bend a piece of metal that might have got bent during delivery. It took me longer to get out the jacks and lift the car then to get this hitch in place. Install time minus jacking up the van was 20 min. tops. The service from etailer is the best online. I talked to a lady on the phone and it was on my porch in 3 days. The lady even emailed me to let me know it was on my porch. Too bad all companies can't have this kind of service. Very Happy. 45967

Very easy install Extremely satisfied. Installation was very easy. Product arrived very quickly. It is extremely beneficial to spray the existing bolts beforehand with a penetrating fluid such as PB Blaster and then let it work overnight. It made for a much easier removal of the bolts. Also, use a 1/2" socket with an extension instead of a 3/8" socket. This will enable you to get much more leverage when loosening and tightening the bolts. Finish the job with a 1/2" drive torque wrench. 2928

Easy Installation Item installed easier than expected. One helpful tip is that I used Car Ramps to raise the rear of my van, this provided the extra room for the installation. I installed it myself, but a second person would be nice to hole hitch in position for the bolt installation. I like the low profile look when installed, draw-tie could easily be stowed with the Jack stowage area. Design does NOT interfere/hit legs when loading van. Great look and finish... 2450

Awesomely easy. If all websites sold products that were delivered on time and had detailed video directions there would be no complaints. Etrailer is all that. Install would have been much harder without the videos actually showing the instructions, that alone would be worth extra in the time it saved me installing the hitch. But it was still the lowest price on top of the great service. Will recommend to anyone looling into trailers to buy from etrailer.com 9989

by: Kurt B07/23/2013


Great product very heavy duty and well built. Instructions said 6 out of 10 difficulty rating for install. We had three people and install was pretty easy - an impact wrench with a 6" extension makes short work of the install. Rebecca in c/s was very professional answered all questions I had thoroughly. Shipping and delivery was seamless . I'd order again from etrailer with no hesitation. I only wish my own company was run as well. 91023

I purchased this trailer hitch for my 2007 minivan. The hitch arrived within a few days with all of the correct parts, and very clear instructions, including how to maneuver the hitch over the springs and into place! The video instructions available online were also very clear and helpful. I would recommend purchasing from etrailer. The whole experience was very positive. Thanks etrailer, Dave 210162



- 36320

by: Preston W.04/28/2011


I did the install by myself in just under an hour. I do have an impact wrench and torque wrench, and I used both. I did not use any kind of lift or jack(s). Did the work in the carport, with my back on the ground. Etrailer shipped the product quickly, and provided timely status updates via email, and who can argue with free shipping on such a large item! All round awesome service. 12549

The hitch arrived in a timely manner. It was mostly easy to install. We did have some issues with the holes lining up. We stretch it with a ratchet strap to align the holes. Towed our new (new to us) pop up using the new hitch. Tows great. I liked that all we had to purchase was the ball. The brake light attachment we purchased and installed also went on without incident. 54291

Superior Service E Trailer provided excellent service. My shipping was upgraded and the product arrived before I expected it. The wiring harness greatly simplified installation and was well worth the price. Draw Tight's hitch was well designed but the finish was of the usual poor quality that is associated with the industry. 4420



- 36320

by: David P05/28/2014


The pre-drilled holes were about 1/2 inch off requiring me to install one side of the hitch, attach the other side to a winch strap attached to a cement pillar, and then winch it as tight as possible to leave just enough room to install the bolts on the other side. Now that it is in place it seems to work great. 133054

The trailer hitch is awesome we like the way our jet ski hooks up to it and doesn't sink. Communication of our shippment was very good and time to receiving our product was within a week. Instuctional video major plus on my decision to make purchase. My wife and I our very pleased with your company. 45395

by: charlie06/19/2015


Another excellent product delivered quickly at a very fair price. My only suggestion is that you should have an extra helping set of hands during the easy installation. It's a bit of a tight fit, and be careful of the rear air conditioning lines when working on the passenger side. 205751

2006 Dodge Grand Caravan


I recently ordered a hitch for a 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan with a stow and go rear seat. Free delivery took 2 days. Your web site estimated the installation time at 1 hour. This was a poor estimate. It really only took me 25 minutes. Its a geat, well built ( in the USA)hitch. 19759

I am very pleased with this hitch. It seems much sturdier than the one I put on my previous van. It fit perfect and was very easy to install. It does require two people, as stated. It shipped right away and I had it much sooner than expected since the shipping was free. 132710

Unit was delivered quickly. It took about 35 minutes for me to install by myself (no extra hands available). I had no lift, so I backed the van onto ramps (which raised the back of the van about 12" ) Easy instructions, easy install. Highly recommend! 38947

by: Todd in Colorado07/19/2012


Unit almost fit perfectly. Had to attach one side, and then push on it very hard with my feet while my son inserted the bolts in the other side. Otherwise a great fit. etrailer is a great online retailer. Fast shipping and great email communication. 48578

Well built solid hitch. Installation didn't go as easy as predicted. Wrestled with it on my back for 15 minutes till I finally realized it would not go on until I removed my right rear tire, Once that was done, it popped right in. Thanks 40623

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch
Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Comparing Curt # 13389 & Hidden Hitch # 87719 Class III Hitches for 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan
  • Both the Curt # 13389 and the Draw-Tite # 36320 are confirmed fits for your 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan with Stow-N-Go seating and both share the same tongue weight (TW) and gross trailer weight (GTW) ratings of 350-lbs and 3500-lbs. If used with a weight distribution system such as Pro Series # PS49903 both hitches' capacities increase to 400-lbs TW and 4000-lbs GTW. The installation difficulty ratings for these two hitches differ really only because those ratings are determined by each...

  • Moving Hitch from 2005 Chrysler Town and Country to 2006 Model
  • This hitch is a fit for the 2005 - 2007 model year with the stow-and-go seating. As long as your 2006 Town and Country has the stow-and-go seating, the Draw-Tite Class II receiver, part # 36320, will work just fine. In the event that you no longer have them, I have provided a link to the installation instructions as well as a link to an installation video.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2004 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT With Stow N Go Seating
  • According to Draw-Tite, their Class II Trailer Hitch, # 36296, fits all models of the Dodge Grand Caravan from 1996 to 2004. They do not list Stow 'N Go compatibility until 2005. This hitch will not fit the 2005 models with the Stow 'N Go seating. Instead, part # 36320 would be required. After doing some research, it looks like the Stow 'N Go option was first released in 2004 for the 2005 model years. It may be possible that your 2004 model was an early production 2005 model.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch And Trailer Wire Harness For 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan
  • The trailer hitches we offer that are designed to fit your 2005 Grand Caravan do not come with a wiring harness or ball mount kit but I can help you out with that. First, I recommend installing a Class lll trailer hitch like part # 75305 with a 2-inch receiver opening. It is a more heavy-duty hitch and it offers many more options for accessories. For the Class lll hitch I recommend the etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2010 Chrysler Town and Country
  • There was a generation change between your 2006 Chrysler Town and Country to your 2010 model so the hitch from your 2006 would not fit your 2010 model. Instead I would recommend the 2 inch hitch part # 75579. 2 inch hitches will have more capacity and more hitch accessories like bike racks and cargo carriers are designed to fit them as well. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. For trailer wiring you would want the part # 118552. For ball mounts I recommend...
