Speaker 1: Today you're going to be getting a look at the rubber hitch cover from etrailer.com. It's available for two inch hitches, part number 22282. It's also available for inch and a quarter hitches, part number 22281.If you've got several hundred dollars invested in a trailer hitch, you may want to consider spending a few more dollars to protect it. An empty receiver tube could invite water, road grime, or other environmental hazards into the opening creating rust and corrosion. This can even spread to your bull mount. The hitch cover serves a dual purpose, preventing rust and corrosion while adding to the overall appearance of a hitch.The etrailer.com hitch cover is black in appearance so it's going to blend in with your hitch.

Compared to other hitch covers, it doesn't require a pin and clip. It simply just pressure fits in place.The wide rubber face is also going to protect the collar of your hitch. Because the whole thing is rubber, it's going to be more durable than plastic hitch covers. Now you've had a look at the rubber hitch cover from etrailer.com.

Ordered a ball hitch, hitch cover, draw bar, and hitch pin for a 1 1/4" receiver so I can use a utility trailer to haul my 7' dingy down to the shore. We have a hybrid vehicle so hauling is not recommended but the distance is less than a mile and the total weight is less than 300 lbs. I shopped in vain to find the right size for our receiver but then I found etrailer. Couldn't be more pleased with the prices, communication and delivery! 5 stars absolutely. Oh, videos are fantastic. 744969

We had a little mishap with this delivery but as soon as I contacted Michelle S she rectified everything in a very quick and professional manner. Unfortunately I could not install this myself it was too difficult for me to get underneath my car so I had my local mechanic do it. He said it was easy to install and it fit well without any additional drilling. Now I have to purchase another anti wobble pin for my bike rack so I can attach it to the hitch. In the meantime I place the hitch cap over the hole and it looks very good. Thank you etrailer for all your support! 401755

I went all over my local area to find this simple part and no one had it, most saying they had no idea what I was talking about. I did finally find a source that wanted $12.95 for it. Going on line, I found etrailer.com and spoke with Customer Service Rep. Jennifer and in 5 minutes, the part was ordered and delivered for less than half the previous sources cost. I know who I'm contacting first for future trailer part needs. Jennifer even gave me her direct line incase of any problems. That is customer service! 291800

Hitch cap works fine. Only reason I didn't put 5 stars is that it could be a bit more snug in the 1 1/4" hitch. I see it potentially wiggling its way out overtime. 814739

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Hitch Covers

  • Should a Locking Hitch Pin be Purchased to Help Keep a Hitch Cover from Being Stolen
    A trailer hitch cover like the Rubber Hitch Cover # 22281 is not one that can be locked, but since it is a common piece it really isn't in too much danger of being stolen. However, if you you are looking at a hitch cover that is a little more unique, like the part # HTCC11805, then I do recommend going with a locking hitch pin like part # e98880 as opposed to a typical pin and clip like part # PC3. This will help to deter theft of your cover. Please note that the lock and clip/pin...

Therefore, a trailer hitch cover designed for a 2" receiver tube opening like the Rubber Hitch Cover part # 22282 will not work for this application. With that being said I am certain you could find something to work for this application with just a bit of modifications. I have attached a sample install video for you as well.

  • Recommendation for Installing 2 Inch Hitch Cover on 1-1/4 Inch Hitch Receiver
    I recommend first verifying the receiver size on your vehicle, as a 1-1/2 inch hitch is very uncommon. We do not have any adapters available for this sized hitch receiver. If you actually have a 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver, you will just need to use an adapter like the Brophy # HTAD. This adapter will slide into your existing hitch receiver and provide a 2 inch receiver opening that you can use with your cover. We do also have a large selection of hitch covers that fit directly with...

  • Why is a Support Strap Required for Class I and II Curt Trailer Hitch Receivers
    You are correct that the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11185 for your 2000 Chrysler Sebring will require the use of a stabilizer strap like the Curt Trailer Hitch Support Strap part # 18050 for all non-towing application. In fact, all Class I and Class II trailer hitch receivers made by Curt require the use of this strap in accordance with their warranty policy.

  • Can Lubricant be Used to Help With Installing Bike Rack Into Hitch Receiver
    If you are having trouble installing your hitch mounted bike rack into a trailer hitch receiver, like the Draw-Tite # 24808 for your 2009 Toyota Prius, then I'd first recommend making sure that the receiver is cleaned out and free of debris. If it is clean then there may just be some extra powder coating on the inside. We have had customers who tried filing it out but you can definitely try some WD40 first if you have some handy.

If you are going to be using a bike rack, like the Thule Roadway # TH912XTR, keep in mind that your max Tongue Weight is 200 lbs and that you will be limited to carrying only 2 bikes. If you will be using the hitch for anything but towing, Curt recommends using the Support Strap # 18050, otherwise your warranty from Curt will be voided.
