Fully welded vehicle trailer hitch is strong and durable. Draw-Tite's Tested Tough guarantee ensures that this hitch exceeds industry standards. The combination of an e-coat base and a powder coat finish provides excellent rust protection.
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.
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. The technicians at etrailer perform hitch installations on a daily basis, making them a valuable resource for do-it-yourselfers. The one-on-one, personal service you'll receive comes straight from an expert in the towing and automotive field. We've installed it, we've wired it and we've towed with it, so whatever your question, we can answer it.

Today on our 2015 Toyota Sienna, we will be taking a look at and installing the DrawTite Match Frame Custom Fit Class 3 Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 75237. Here's what our hitch is going to look like once it's installed. It's going to have that nice sleek, round tube design across the bottom of our vehicle the full width, with a nice black powder coat finish that's going to be high gloss and also prevent any kind of rust and corrosion. With a fully welded design and plate steel chain tie-downs, it's going to add extra strength and durability. It's going to have a 2" x 2" receiver tube opening, offering a 675 pound ton weight capacity, and 4,500 pound towing capacity. With weight distribution, the ton weight stays the same, but the gross trailer weight is going to go up to 5,000 pounds. On the side here we're going to have a 5/8" pin hole for all your 2" receiver accessories, and just in front of it you'll see a 1/2" pin hole.
That'll be for your J-pin stabilization device. You're going to have your welded on bracket that's going to be for attaching your 4-pole or 7-pole trailer wiring. There'll be no need to get an extended bracket to mount up your trailer wiring. Now let's go ahead and get a few measurements to assist you in selecting new hitch accessories. From the top of the receiver tube to the ground is going to be about 10-3/8".
From the center of the pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper is going to be about 5". These measurements should assist you in selecting new hitch accessories for your 2" receiver, such as ball mounts, bike racks, and cargo carriers. Now let's go ahead and see how it's installed. First thing we're going to want to do is remove the under body panel. There's going to be some 10mm bolts that we'll remove first. Now this panel will need to be trimmed and re-installed later.
Go ahead and remove the big Phillip's screws next, and these are going to be like big Phillip's nuts that secure to studs in the bottom panel. Next we'll have some push fasteners located along the front. Pop out the center and remove them. We want to get those Phillip's nuts one more time, and we'll pull down as we're un-threading them to disengage them. We'll set the panel off to the side.
Now we'll go ahead and take a little bit of spray lubricant to lower down our exhaust. Where we're going to spray that lubricant is going to be on the exhaust hangers. There's going to be one located here on the end of the tailpipe. That spray lubricant will help the lead slide off easier. Go ahead and use a pry bar just to peel them back. Once we have it slid back, we can go ahead and pull it down. Go ahead and repeat that on the other 2 up here. We just removed the one right on the right hand side of our muffler. Now on the inside of the frame we're going to see some covers. These are going to be some sticker covers that they have from the factory, and we're going to remove the back 2. This one here, this one here, and the very last one down here on the end. We'll leave this one in place. We'll take off these plastic plugs. We're just going to peel down and peel them out. These are going to be covering up our existing weld nuts in the frame, and if you don't have these, then make sure that you clean out your weld nuts before you get started using a wire brush, or a tube brush. That way you make sure you get a nice clean connection. Now we'll go ahead and repeat the same process on the passenger side with the same attachment points. Here's the bolts that we're going to use. We're going to take our lock washers over the top, and our flat washer, going through the receiver hitch and into the existing weld nuts in the frame. Let's go ahead and get an extra set of hands to help us raise our hitch into place. We'll go ahead and put one bolt in each side, just to help hold it up in place while I get the rest of the hardware in. Make sure you thread all the bolts into place by hand, so that way you don't cross thread the weld nuts in the frame. Now we'll go ahead and tighten down all of our hardware. We'll repeat that same process on the other side. Then we'll go ahead and torque down all of our bolts to manufacturer specifications, starting here on the passenger side, and then we'll repeat that same process on the driver side. Now we'll go ahead and raise our exhaust back up into position. Use a little spray lubricant to spray the end of the isolater to assist you in putting it back in. Now it may also be useful to get a flat blade screwdriver and help you slide it on. At this point it would be a good time to go ahead and re-attach that panel on the bottom side that we removed at the beginning. Now if you choose to, you can trim it to the instructions, or you can leave it down and return it back to the customer untrimmed. That will do it for our review and installation of the DrawTite Match Frame Custom Fit Class 3 Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 75237 on our 2015 Toyota Sienna.

I purchased this hitch for my wife's 2016 Toyota Sienna. I chose this particular model because the reviews said that it had the most clearance. Once installed, it is even with most of the mechanicals on the bottom of the vehicle. While it doesn't reduce your ground clearance, it could easily have been designed to sit an inch or so higher. However, because it isn't flush against the vehicle, I was able to get the plastic trim piece back on the van with very little trimming. I suspect that there must be fairly significant differences on the rear pan as some of the reviews indicate they couldn't reuse the trim piece and the instructions show cutting away most of the plastic. Either the rear pan for the cargo area was slightly smaller on previous year's models or the one I received had been dropped and the mounting flanges bent towards each other. Though there was no visible damage. The mounting flanges were about 1/4" to 1/2" to narrow for the 2016. Because of this, what should have been a 1 hour job turned in to a 4 hour job. Having to convince the mounting flanges in to place caused more than significant issues. I marked the product down for this reason. I've never had an issue like this with items from etrailer so I'm guessing the Toyota engineers must have made small, but troublesome size changes on the 2016. 267650
The Class III Hitch I bought from this retailer arrived on time in a sturdy box with minimal damage to the box and none to the powder coat finish on the hitch. I installed it on my 2012 Toyota Sienna in about 1 hour. Add another 15 min of cleanup. It was a relatively easy job with two people and the proper tools. The instructions included were OK, but I watched a You Tube video first that was provided by another manufacturer, but with essentially the same installation technique. The video is worth watching. Made the process of removal, alteration and re-installation of the plastic fascia under my Sienna much easier. Purchasing this product from e-Trailer was easy and hassle free. I will almost certainly purchase future merchandise from them again. I have already recommended the site to my neighbors. 46083

Great product, solid, and fits like a glove. Looks great too on my 2013 Sienna. Now we have our bike rack installed on the Sienna and life has improved. What I like most about etrailer was all the great documentation and videos reassuring me that I was getting the right product for my vehicle and helping me fit the correct bike rack. One thing that would be nice to have is a replacement appearance panel (the plastic cover that is removed during the install) that fits around the hitch. Also, your mileage may vary on this, but my hitch wasn't supposed to be delivered until Monday or Tuesday, but to my surprise I received the Friday before - thereby allowing me the convenience of the weekend instead of a late weeknight to install in time for my big trip. I really appreciated that. 157644

Hitch shipped quickly. Took 75 minutes from start to finish to install on my wife's 2011 Sienna. The decorative cover Toyota felt needed to be installed on the underside of the storage area took longer to remove (safely), cut to fit around the hitch and replace than installing the hitch itself. 268006
Bolt hole alignment was off by a few millimeters on my 2011 Sienna. The two holes that are grouped together were fine, but the single holes on both sides were off. Unfortunately the left-right adjustments were not adequate to correct. Eventually I figured out how to wedge a wrench in between the hitch and the frame of my car to bend the hitch far enough over to allow me to insert the last two bolts. The depth under the car is fine, and it allows me to use the Yakima bike rack that I purchased so that's a plus, and the online videos made the process very easy to follow. 142292
No problems at all. Bolt and go. The valance under the car is a pain to remove... 3 or 4 different fasteners. The valance cannot be used afterwards. The "trimming" leaves you with about 1/10th of the valance left (toyota actually molded in a trimming line) just leave it off. The bumper valance seems strong enough to handle the lack of valance and you'd be trimming all of that off anyway. I may try to figure out a way to slot the valance and make it work with the hitch, but not per the instructions. Silly toyota. 89098

The folks at etrailer gave me a recommendation for what type of hitch and bike rack I needed to fit my 2012 Toyota Sienna. I purchased their recommendation including this hitch and just came back from a wonderful vacation destination to which I transported 2 adult and 2 kids bikes! A local automotive repair shop installed the hitch for under $100. Will definitely buy from etrailer again in the future. 62475

Awesome customer service. Fast shipping. Accurate product. The hitch bolted up to my 2012 Toyota Sienna perfectly and etrailer's instructional videos were a huge help. I'll definitely use this site again and recommend it to friends. 263096

Once again, etrailer.com has exceeded my expectations. My Draw-Tite hitch arrived in 9 days, and thanks to several good installation videos on etrailer.com, it was installed on my 2012 Toyota Sienna about an hour later. It wouldn't have taken that long if I had a helper, and was able to lift the van a little more. I was only able to raise it 3" with the leveling blocks from our camper. All the holes in the hitch lined up perfectly. I doubt there's a better company in the world than etrailer.com when it comes to customer service. They provide great product information before and after the purchase, and very good prices. 274080

Product is high quality. Installation instructions and hardware was all included and carefully and safely tucked away and taped up in the receiver part of the hitch. I mention this because the way the shipping carton looked I was concerned everything had fallen out. Obviously not E-Trailers first rodeo! Installation was a bit tricky on the passenger side due to the exhaust being in the way, but nothing a couple of wood blocks couldn't handle. Haven't put this to use yet, but looks and feels like a tank, and superb paint finish to boot! 255206

Quick Install with a floor jack 1) Read the instruction 3 times. 2) Jack up the van into the center rear of jack stand holder(read owner manual). 3) Take out all the plastic buttons and 4 plastic screws. 4) Unplug plastic bolt covers; and put some put some grease or lubricant over the bolt threads. 5) Land both sides of the hitch on the car body frame at the same time jack the hitch up slowly. 6) hand tight each of the bolts first; and alternately tighten it incrementally on each side. 3718

Easy to install -- I ran out of time but watched the mechanic do it -- took about 20 minutes on the Sienna -- literally 6 screws -- on the Sienna, only thing to be aware of is it really does ride low to the ground however, it is well hidden and for my Yakima Bike Rack it does a great job -- if you were looking to hook up electric, it has a really nice mounting post to put your electrical too and it is nice has 2 holes -- for the hitch pin -- both sizes -- 257869
Very well made hitch also includes bracket for 7 pin connector if you use brake control. Shipping was very fast and free for my order. Customer service was very nice and helpful. I order wrong hitch on internet in my cart on Saturday and called Monday morning and and made a change to order no problem and still received order on wed. Chris with customer service was very helpful. I would recommend E trailer to anyone. Very nice product so 252501

Product was exactly what was described and came sooner than expected. service question was immediately answered also. Hint for cover over fuel tank cover: the big round plastic fasteners will come off with a little downward pressure on them as you unscrew it. Also leave the hitch loose until you place the plastic cover plate back in place or you can't get it past the hitch to put back. 47988
by: Randy H.07/05/2016
Very solid, well made hitch. It fit perfectly and would have been super easy to install. But Toyota did not have any plugs protecting the weld nuts fitted to the frame. So these were rusty and I had to use a tap and die set to clean up the threads enough to get the bolts to thread in. Actually did not have to move the exhaust out of the way to get access to the holes. 268222
by: Fernando S.07/01/2016
Delivered with about 1/4 of the hitch sticking out of box (... fault). No damage as I could see. A little difficult to install as holes didn't simply line up perfectly and had to use a crow bar, but did get installed and seems like a great product. Already scraped going over a speed bump so need to remember how low rear end is now. Overall great. 267382

Installing the receiver hitch was extremely easy. What made it even easier was watching your guys video on how to install it before I attempted to put it on my van to give me an idea on how to do it and what I was getting myself into. The only thing that would have made it easier is if you sent someone to do it for me. Great product! 242388
Installed easy enough. Didn't need to drop the exhaust as our sienna was only had a single exhaust.i think u can cut the sides of the rear skid plate to allow access to the mounting bolts. And then reinstall the skid plate. But I had already cut the skid plate to the specs provided from etrailer. 194980

The hitch was exactly what we were looking for. I was able to install in less than 30 minutes. 185657
I order this hitch for my 2006 Toyota Sienna. The installation was really simple with easy to follow instructions. I used it to haul a trailer over 1000 miles and it held up with absolutely no issues. I would recommend this product with 5 stars. I am extremely satisfied. 254902
by: Brian H07/19/2013
Product was exactly as advertised, appears to be well made, shipment was prompt, it installed easily and securely. It did well on our first trip with our 5 bike, bike rack, and I don't see any reason to expect anything other than continued good performance with this. 90459
by: Waber T07/19/2016
Hitch installed just like it does in the video. I trimmed my underbody cover per the instructions, but then ended up reinstalling almost all of it. Instructions were very good and I watched the video 3 times before I started. Went out and bolted it right up. 273667
by: Philip C05/27/2016
So far so good. Fit was good. A little pressure with a large screwdriver was need to line up the last mounting hole but not too bad. Part is nicely finished and works with the cargo carrier I have. May buy a small trailer to make more use of the hitch. 252325
by: Bill R10/06/2014
Superb job on my hitch delivery. You worked around the factory issues using e-mails and phone calls to ensure the hitch was delivered on time. Also, your web site was the best providing me with the information I needed to make the best decision. 154684
Just received the product - it was delivered quickly. the product looks to be higher quality than I expected and easier to than install than expected too. I have not installed yet but looks like something I would recommend to others. 235022
Fast shipping, fit perfectly, easy installation. Saved me money versus what I was quoted at a dealership for the hitch plus installation. I would definitely use your site again in the future. 25332

by: Steve v06/05/2016
Bolted right up. Took about 30 min to install because there is a plastic shield under the gas tank that needed to be modified. 257528
