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.

Today on our 2016 Toyota Sienna, we're going to be taking a look at and also showing you how to install the Draw-Tight Max Frame Custom Fit Class 3 trailer hitch receiver. Part number 75237. You'll see this is the hitch. Once we get it installed, we're going to have that rounded cross tube. It's going to go across the rear of the vehicle. Meets in the middle here at the receiver tube opening.
It's a Class 3, so we're going to have a two inch receiver tube opening. The Class 3 hitches are really very versatile. Just about all the different kinds of accessories you can find for a hitch will fit into a class three. You'll see there's going to be two holes in the hitch. The one that's closest to the front of the vehicle and the largest, that's the one we'd use for securing all of our items. It's 5/8ths of an inch in diameter and we'll want to use Class 3 rated accessories.
The one located behind it is for the j-pin stabilization system, which is just one of many different options of stabilizers out there. You can see the reinforcement collar. It's got a rounded look to it. It's going to be inside of the bumper slightly so we won't have to worry about bumping into it or anything. It's got a nice plate style safety chain connection point area with a really large, nice, open connection area here. Something I like is that they have welded a tab on here with three pre-drilled holes so if you're going to be doing any kind of wiring on the exterior of the vehicle, you could get brackets that would attach there and help you to secure it. Now when it comes to towing or hauling bike racks and cargo carriers, we're going to have a 675 pound tongue weight rating.
That's the maximum downward force we can put here in our receiver tube opening. We've got a 4,500 pound gross trailer weight rating. That's going to be the total weight of our trailer and anything that we might load up on it. Now if we decide to move into a weight distribution setup, our tongue weight's going to stay the same at the 675 pounds, but our gross trailer weight rating, that's going to go up to 5,000 pounds. Of course, we do need to check the owner's manual in the Sienna. We'll see what it's rated for and you'll go off of whichever of those numbers are the lowest.
Now a couple of measurements that are going to be helpful when it comes to selecting ball mounts, bike racks, or hitch cargo carriers will be from the ground to the inside top edge of a receiver tube opening. We've got about 10 and 3/4 of an inch. Then from the center of our hitch pinhole to the outermost edge of our bumper, it's about 4 and 1/2. Now if your vehicle is equipped with this panel underneath the back side, we're going to get that pulled down and out of the way. We'll be trimming it and putting it back in place or you can just leave it off. Whatever you want to do. Putting it back in place does give it a little bit cleaner look across the back though, but it is optional for you. You can see we've got some Philip's screws across the back here. We'll get these pulled out. Also across the back side here, there are these large they're basically a nut that you would just push up on the bolt, but you can use either a large Philip's or even a large flat head for that matter. You can get them to come down. Just like that's what you're looking for. Now we'll go to the outside edge on the passenger's side and the driver's side and we'll add the same style fasteners there. Got a couple of pushpin fasteners across this forward edge. Going to leave these two. Those'll be what we take out last. That way it'll just hold the cores. There are going to pull out the core and then the whole thing should come out like that. Now if you're seeing this equipped with the added on mud flaps here, we need to pull the little screw out of there just like that and we'll just push that panel over out of the way and we can put our screw right back in. Now we're going to do the last two pushpin fasteners here and work our panel out. Now for trimming out our panel, you can see we've got one, two, three, four. That's where those black Philip's screws were. All the way this is the very back edge towards the rear of the vehicle. These are the fasteners we had in the front. Basically we want to retain the four holes and the two Philip's style push nuts. One hole on the end here, it's all the way on the driver's corner. This is going to be going away. We'll come right in from that hole. See there's a corner edge right here. From that edge we want to go right back to that point. Just like that. Then we're going to be following this line all the way around. Then when we get over to this edge, we'll be about two inches before the edge and we're going to come down and just like that right over to that corner now the material you can see it's really flexible so a razor knife's really all you're going to need to cut it. All right. The smaller piece'll be the part going back up and the larger piece we can set aside or maybe use it as a sled. Now to give this a little bit more flexibility in the exhaust here so we get our hands in there. There's a hanger right here that we're going to remover. Usually if you just use a little bit of spray lubricant on it and then a big screwdriver, maybe a pry bar. Getting behind it, it'll usually come off there for you. That'll give us just a little bit more room to work. We don't need much. Right now we've got three attachment points on each side. You can see there's three stickers that cover the holes and then there's a little rubber club. We can weave the rubber club, we want to pull down these little stickers. We'll do that here on the driver's side and the exact same thing on our passenger's side. You've got the same attachment points on both. Now we can get our hitch raised into position. It's a good idea to have an extra set of hands to help you out with this. We're just going to align our side plates with those weld nuts and then we'll take our hardware. We're going to have a bolt and we're going to place on a lock washer and a flat washer and then those get threaded right up into the weld nuts. Now once you've got three or four good turns on one of them, you just let it rest there. That'll allow you to get the rest of your hardware started. All right. Now with them started, let's take a quick look just to be sure that we have our hitch centered on the vehicle and we'll start snugging those down. Now we'll grab our torque wrench and we want to check our instructions. Listed in there are going to be torque specifications. I'm going to go around to get all of our bolts torqued down appropriately. Now we can get our exhaust raised back up into position. We can slide that hanger back, then we'll move on to getting our panel replaced. You can see that there's some push-on style nuts there. I'm just going to get it back. Tuck this lip in, and once that's tucked in, we'll just align those studs and then press up on them. We'll replace the four screws across the back. Now with the panel back in place, that's going to complete the installation of the Draw-Tite Max Frame Class 3 trailer hitch receiver. Part number 75237 on our 2016 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 Draw-Tite Max (#75237) was a perfect fit for my 05 Sienna CE!! Kudos to Etrailer (again!) for giving us a Great/Quality product, at a Great VALUE . . and, Free Shipping to boot !! Saved hundreds on this by buying & installing myself, compared to Toyota quote for same work! I read many of the etrailer customer reviews on this before purchasing, & many of the comments were extremely helpful in aiding with installation . . thanks everyone for your input & help!! On an older vehicle like mine, I would have NEVER gotten the bolts in, without first "chasing" &/or cleaning them out with a thread restorer (as suggested in the reviews!) . . I had never used one, but it worked like a champ! You will need a 12mm X 1.25 thread restorer . . I was looking to purchase one, stopped by my local [retailer] Automotive store . . they considered this a "specialty tool" so were willing to "loan" it to me for Free! (if I put down a fully-refundable Deposit) . . so, their loan saved me even more! . . . it took me about 1.5 hours to fully clean out the threads . . BUT, it was worth it! . . & as someone else suggested in their Review "if you can't hand-thread the mounting bolts into your frame . . you need to keep cleaning them with the thread chaser/restorer"!! . . good advice! Install is a snap, once the threads are cleaned properly. And, it DID take some serious tugging, to get the proper torque on the bolts [specs] . . need to use a torque wrench to be sure. Could not be happier with this purchase! Have used etrailer several times previously, & will certainly continue! . . and, tell others about my positive experiences!! 340900

I ordered this Draw Tight Hitch from etrailer.com and it was shipped out quickly and well packaged. It had relevant installation instructions and all necessary hardware. After reviewing the installation video I was sure that I could install this in only a short amount of time. Well after 1.5 hrs of trying to align the hitch using 2 floor jacks and various expletives I gave up and called etrailer. They asked for some pictures of the problem which I sent. Basically the "arms" of the hitch were angled inwards, resulting in the hitch being too narrow to fit around the spot where the rear seats fold down on my sienna van. I was able to get 4 of the 6 mounting bolts in place, but there was no way to secure the last 2. etrailer agreed that something was wrong with the hitch and sent out a new one that same day. Fantastic! I received hitch number two and compared it to the 1st hitch which I had not yet returned. It was 3/8ths of an inch NARROWER than the first one. I laid it up against my van just to be sure, and it would not fit at all. I called etrailer again and they swapped out the second hitch for a CURT hitch, which was shipped the same day. I returned both of the drawtight hitches, and received my CURT hitch yesterday 8/3/16. It took me 15 minutes to place and secure the curt hitch to my van. Obviously Drawtight has some pretty serious manufacturing inconsistencies, but I am very happy with the way etrailer was willing to fix the issue. 5 stars for etrailer, 5 stars for the replacement Curt hitch, and zero for Drawtight 278851

Couple of things. 1) The shipping box was full of holes by the time it showed up at my house. A few minor scratches here and there but no big deal... except I wondered what I would do if I had to return the hitch for some reason. Luckily, I didn't have to return it. 2) I installed it on a 2014 Toyota Sienna. One word of caution, the under carriage appearance panel that you have to remove in order to install the hitch has been modified by Toyota for 2014. The under panel has an inch wide convex hump that runs across the entire length right above where the cross bar of the hitch goes. Therefore, if you choose to re-install the under panel along with the hitch, as I did, the under panel will press down against the hitch and you will have to made some adjustments as you tighten the screws of the hitch as well as the under panel. I am attaching a couple of picks that show how the under panel is now pushed in. 141578

Hitch arrived in perfect condition. E-trailer boxes these up for shipment themselves and does a very good job. I used a 3-ton jack and a pair of jackstands to lift the back of the van about 10 inches off the ground for install. The weld nuts on my '08 Sienna were more than a bit corroded and required some cleaning with a wire brush and solvent. I used a spare pair of jackstands to actually hold up the hitch while I got the first two bolts in. I do recommend the use of an impact gun to do this install. I used a 1/2" electric Milwaukee brand one and it did a fine job. Cleaning the corrosion out of the weldnuts to allow the bolt to start the thread is crucial. I decided to remove the exhaust hanger to allow myself a bit more room during installation but you could do this without removing it if you so choose. After I got all the bolts in I used a torque wrench to make sure all the bolts were at the specified 75 lb. torque down. I installed this hitch all by myself with just a bit of effort. Cleaning the weld nuts out properly was the only thing that kept me from completing this in 30 minutes. This hitch is pretty much a no-brainer to put on. Excellent product. 20429

Install of the hitch is quick and easy. I trimmed the lower plastic cover panel with a long slot on the driver's side to clear the hitch and then re-installed. Although the instructions wanted me to trim way more of the panel, or leave it off completely, I think it's worthwhile to cut the slot and re-install to keep road grime out of the rear bumper area. I was a bit worried when the box showed up on the porch pretty mashed up. The hitch has some paint rubbed off but it wasn't damaged other than that. I installed with T-One wiring harness on our 2015 Sienna SE. Didn't have to remove the passenger taillight but did need to remove the driver's taillight. You can fish the wires through some areas without removing all of the panels the instructions recommend removing. Cut a hole in a rubber grommet below the storage well to route the trailer wiring plug permanently out of the car and mounted it to the plate on the hitch. Looks smooth and won't require the plug wire hanging out of the rear door when on long road trips. Hitch install was 30 minutes. Wiring harness took 2 hours or so. 237815
have ordered from etrailer.com twice now. Both orders were perfect fits for both vehicles. The wiring harnesses that they sell are perfect fit as well. I would suggest purchasing from etrailer.com any day. One piece of advise I suggest for people installing on a slightly used vehicle: when installing tow hitch, use a tap to clear out the threads on the bolt holes before attempting to install, doing this will result in a much easier and pain free installation. I installed mine on a 2010 Toyota sienna LE van AWD. There was no trimming required on anything, even though etrailer said there would be. Overall a simple installation. 342105
Good Product. Good service. The hitch fit my 2004 Sienna like a glove. The hitch was delivered to me in 4 business days. The only issue I had with the hitch itself was that it had a few scrapes on it when I received it and I could see bare metal. I touched up the paint so it wouldn;t rust. No bigie since it sits under the vehicle so I didn;t care what it looked like. The install was another story. Not due to the hitch itself, but my vehicle. Although I did not have to drop the exhaust as the instructions state, my 5 year-old Sienna's mounting nuts were corroded and rusted. The Bolts did not go in easily at all. Make sure you clean the threads on the nuts as much as possible before trying to install...use WD-40 or some other and try to clean the threads with a tiny wire brush. I did the install using ramps and hand tools (i.e. ratchet, extensions, power drill, lug-wrench). It would be much much easier if you have a lift and an impact wrench. 2179
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

The e-trailer website is great. There are clear, complete videos and help topics for choosing the right products and installing them. My order qualified for free shipping and I received it in Maine in 4 days. I ordered this hitch to tow a pop up camper with our 2005 Sienna mini van. Actually installing the hitch was quick and easy, even by myself. I used a floor jack to help hold it up while I got the bolts started. The hardest and most time consuming part was cleaning out the crud and rust from the threads in the bolt holes. I needed a tap and lots of penetrating oil. The hitch does hang down pretty low when the weight of the trailer is on it so keep that in mind if you have a steep driveway. 25726

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
Very easy to install. I have a 2011 Sienna, that I bought used. It took about an hour doing it myself. You have to remove an appearance panel that extends from the rear wheels to the bumper first, and if you want to re install the trimmed piece which is very small, you should re install this first before installing the Hitch Receiver. The appearance panel cuts very easy with tin snips and you can see a line to follow on the panel. It's optional to install this small piece, you don't really need it. I've been a customer of etrailer for 15+ years and have bought all my hitches and bike racks from them and my family buys from them to. I've installed alot of hitches over the years. 163966

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
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

Good Product - Easy to Install This hitch seems to be well made, it fit perfectly, and was simple to install - about 30 minutes start to finish. Contrary to the instructions, I was able to install it without dropping the exhaust by using a "u-joint" on the end of a six-inch extension. I was impressed with the service from etrailer.com. I ordered the hitch on my lunch hour and it was shipped later that day. It arrived two days later in a heavy cardboard box without a scratch on it. I would definitely purchase from etrailer.com again. 505
by: Rob K.06/01/2016
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
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

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
by: Larry G.05/03/2012
Second time I'm using you guys and I'm again more then satisfied. Product came as described, the box was torn but everything was there. Installation took me a little longer because I did it all by myself. Watching the video at your site helped a lot. It went just like they said. The money I saved by doing the install myself more then paid for the torque wrench I purchased to complete the install. The next time I need anything that you guys handle I'm buying it from you, you're that good. 39286

Got to me on time, hitch looked great, Installed in an hour (took my time) On my 2008 Toyota Sienna AWD, I didn't have to cut anything and I used a 2x4 to hold my pipe out of the way for bolt clearance. (much easier than removing rubber hanger) Did this alone, so I used a jack stand to support one end while I got the bolts started on other end, then removed jack stand and put in remaining bolts. Torqued the bolts and removed 2x4, Done, Thanks for a great product and great service. Don C 284423

I'm very happy. The hitch was easy to pick out and it fit my van prrfectly. The shipment was given priority mail at no additional charge making it arrive within a couple days of ordering. I liked the emails letting me know when the order was received, when it was shipped, and the confirmation emails. It gave me confidence the product was packed up and shipped as soon as possible. I cant say how efficient the process was and i would recommend etrailer to everyone. Thanks, jim 31557

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

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
by: Luke B.09/02/2016
Great product! Easy to install. Arrived neatly packaged with all required hardware. Purchased for use with a hitch bike rack. Will be a returning customer, would recommend this product to anyone. 290639
by: Ron P07/15/2012
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: David N.05/20/2014
I ordered this hitch primarily to carry a cargo hauler. It was very easy to install and watching the video helped immensely. I did the installation myself and was done in 45 minutes or so. With 2 people, the time could easily be cut in half. After installation the hitch looks clean and professional. I would definitely purchase again if I was in need of another hitch. 131445
by: Bill L08/21/2011
Worked great, just took me a long time to get the bolts started since its a 7 year old Sienna and had a lot of rust and build up. I did not want to use wd40 on it for fear of it backing out easier, and didn´t want to use a wire brush on the treads. The exhaust move was relatively easy with wd40 though. Looks great, was in good shape on shipping, just some minor scratches. 22414

Great Service and selection E-trailer was recommended to me by my local Totota dealer for thier prices and variety. They had several hitches for my Sienna that had a 2" reciever - not available from Toyota. their prices were great and they upgraded my delivery to 3 day service for free. I got my hitch and had it installed in no time. An excellent experience overall. 4628
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
by: Brian S.08/09/2011
I love my new hitch. Got it at a good price and the shipping was free. The installation went without a hitch thanks to the great videos online from etrailer.com. The harness kit was exactly as shown in the video. The whole installation from start to finish was about 40 minutes. Was very impressed with the whole experience. Thanks etrailer! 21441

My suggestion is to install the wiring first then the piece of plastic over the top of the wiring, then install the trailer hitch. Because two studs on the appearance piece are not accessable. Without those two screws it worked out fine , the other screws were enough. So If had to do it all over again I would install the hitch last. 284968

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

etrailer.com shipped amazingly fast. The hitch was in perfect shape and fit perfectly. I was completely pleased with everything etrailer offered. I appreciated the video instruction for installing the hitch and lighting harness. I would definitely recommend etrailer to anyone looking for a trailer hitch and will turn there 1st again. 19017
Hitch and wiring were easy to install. Wiring had to be strung from battery to rear of van (pain in butt). I used a hole already in trunk floor so no drilling. The worst part is trying to get plastics back under trunk...still not on. This is on a 2011 Sienna xle fwd. haven't had a chance to use yet but it looks nice installed. 279620
I was so thrilled to find etrailer.com. I was referred by a friend and here's the skinny: VERY easy to work with website. Simple to pick what I needed. Pricing was great - very competitive. Package arrived before schedule and installation with wiring harness was easy going. I HIGHLY recommend this site! Happy towing! 91727
This trailer hitch arrived quickly. It went right in. The bolt holes lined up so perfectly that I could thread the bolts in by hand. I can't get over how simple and easy it was. I didn't even have to jack the car up. Did it in the driveway w/my wife. The install took less than an hour. You need this product. 299703

The hitch is well built and solid. The only problem I encountered was that, on the Toyota Sienna, the bolts included were fine for the middle factory threaded hole but too long for the front and back threaded holes. A minor problem that was easy to fix but it required a trip to the hardware store. 22773
Speedy delivery. The hitch fit perfectly. In reviewing other reviews I would like to add, get a round wire brush like you would use to clean copper pipe to get the rust out of the threads or get the proper tap to clean out the threads. Make sure the bolts go in before you try to install the hitch. 34480
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

Good product, fast delivery! Stunningly fast delivery from eTrailer.com! Product is very simple to install. Appears to be of quality construction. Paint was a bit chipped on edges of hitch & so requires minor (normal) touch-up after installation to prevent/delay corrosion of exposed steel. 2077

This is my second hitch from etrailer. Two different make of cars and the instruction videos that are on the website are amazing! This one was for a 2016 Toyota Sienna and went in without a problem! I ordered on a Sunday and got it on Thursday and installed on Thursday night in an hour! 280182

This product was installed on my vehicle 3 years ago by a dealer. I am not satified with it for a Toyota Sienna. It is bulky and clearance between the ground and the hitch is not adequate. The vehicle routinely scrapes the ground when backing into my driveway or going over a hump. 9428

Excellent Hitch Perfect fit, one person job, one hour of work. Prop up the driver's side, lift the passenger's side yourself. Use a shim to move the exaust to the side. I believe using U-joint adapters as other posters have suggested would give you incorrect torque measurements. 1246
High quality; fit fairly well. High quality, very strong, very good cost/benefit. Installation: You need a torque wrench & socket. Tip: You don't have to lower the tailpipe if you push it slightly out of the way and use a socket extender bar (6~10"?) to tighten the nuts. 565

Ready to Tow The tolerance on the bolt holes was off slightly, took over 2 hours to mount. The muffler did not have to come off to mount but would ahve been helpful if i could have removed it from the rubber mounts. Despite the pain in the butt installation it rides great! 1004
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
