Arrived as promised. Looks good. I have not installed the hitch yet but it looks like the one I ordered. I’ve used Etrailer before and I’ve always been very satisfied.



Great! Easy install, Looks good, and works well. I would recommend this Product .

2003 Ford Windstar

Great Hitch. Installed easily on my minivan. The instructions and install kit made it very quick and simple. I'm able to use a tow basket on the back of my van now.

2003 Ford Windstar

Good product at good price not hard at all to put in. Was worried when I first looked under van cuz there are some A/C line's back there and I don't remember seeing them in the video but the hitch does not go back that far. this was the second hitch I have bought from etrailer and have had no problems and shipping is always fast..

Dan M.


Still works well.. no problems

2011 Ford Windstar

This is the 3rd hitch I've bought from this site. The first 2 were 1 1/4" since I have a small camping trailer, a small car and a minivan. Both fit perfectly & were easy to install. I recently bought the 2" hitch to accommodate my new bike hauler.

I also bought the wiring kits and wish I'd installed the van kit before I went on vacation in 2011. It turned out that someone had previously installed a wiring kit on my van, so I went with that. It failed after 3 days. For the next 4 weeks we rigged a system that plugged into a power point in the back of the van. It had to be unplugged every time we stopped. It sucked.
After arriving home, I installed the wiring kit that I got from, and and have been running fine ever since.

After all of the trouble this van has had (Ford Windstar, 2003), I'm guessing that it won't last much longer, but when I replace it, I'll definitely buy a hitch from I've had nothing but good results with the hitches & wiring kits.

2000 Ford Windstar

Dylan, you and the other staff made the product selection, ordering and purchase easy, efficent and enjoyable. The hitch and harness were delivered not just on time, but a day early. This allowed me to get it installed in time to use it when I needed it. I would gladly order more purchases from you in the future, and I will definitely recommend your company to anybody who wants to buy these kinds of items.

The product was a trailer hitch and wiring kit for a Ford Windstar 2000. The installation went quickly and was exactly like the instruction video. The total time of the hitch and wiring took just over 2 1/2 hours. I drilled two holes on each side, otherwise it was a straight bolt-on installation. The slotted bolts with the pull-through wires made the bolt positioning very easy. In summary, the company is obviously a well managed, well staffed group that knows their business, is customer oriented and has competitive pricing. I never dealt with a company that was more satisfying. I especially enjoyed working with you, Dylan.


Loved this product it was easy to install they provided the wire to feed the bolts through the frame. The hitch lined up perfectly with the factory holes and the other holes were easy to drill because they predrilled the holes for you on the hitch. I pulled my boat the same day I installed the hitch and all together only took about half an hour could be done in less time if you had a lift. The costumer service was astounding they not only got my order quickly processed but they up graded my shipping for free and I got my order the next day. I love the product and I love this company I would recommend it to all my friends and family it is definitely safe and reliable. Thank you and all of your employees


Worked out great. Easy installation and seems quite sturdy.

2000 Ford Windstar

2001 Ford Windstar

I was very impressed with They have the best web-site ever. I new nothing about hitches. Their website had all the information I needed to ensure I ordered the right hitch for my Ford minivan and great instructions for correct installation, including their very helpful videos. The hitch works great.

Pontiac Trans Sport Van

All needed products and parts were included and easily identified. The wire for threading the pieces worked unbeliveably well. Hitch will be used to transport wheelchair for my son-in-law who is totally disabled. Thanks for a good product and a great video of the instalation process.


I give it five star's because it was fast on delivery and after ordering my towing hitch they sent a email for concerns,, if i had any questions or even if i needed to change my order i could talk to someone direct.. thats good service.. thanks


Great customer service and website


I haven’t had my hitch installed yet but the service from the company was outstanding. With very prompt FREE delivery. The hitch does appear to be of the highest quality. I will be using it for a 2 bike carrier.

2002 Ford Windstar

this was an easy to install product for my husband! he didnt know what fishwire was and it was still a snap(once he found out what it was for). Shipping was extremely FAST which was helpful and although he didnt use the customer service they seem readily available. Communication emails from this company were great every step of the way which provided a great experience! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

2000 Ford Windstar

The trailer hitch was very well constructed, which is very important to us. We will be using the hitch to pull a drag car to the local race tracks.

2001 Ford Windstar

Hitch came fast and no issues.
instructions where clear and I had it installed in less than 2 hours.
This is the 3rd or 4th product I have purchased from etrailer and I have always been satisfied with both the price and the product.
I would do business with etrailer again.

2000 Ford Windstar

Got hitch on time. Tracking info was excellent. Had my mechanic to install and he had no problems. Reasonable price quick shipping good customer service.

1999 Ford Windstar

I would give you five stars but the information on how to install the trailer hitch needs to be more clear, and that you needed to drill holes in the frame to finish the install thanks


Not difficult to install. Very well made receiver build to last! I have always received top notch service from etrailer and this purchase was no exception.


the hitch went in no proublem

2002 Ford Windstar

Fits fine but the bolts would not (fish) thru the hole in the frame, the heads on the bolts were to big. Had to use a bigger hole further up the frame and add a short piece of wire to the included fish wire since it would not reach.


Mounted by myself in front yard. Kit has everything you need. Have been pulling my boat and utility trailer with no problems.


great way to get a hitch


Easy to install, perfect fit!


I agree with Richard Burnham Jr. post on 5/1/11. Easy to install. Took about an hour, which includes gathering tools and cleaning up afterwards. Shipping was free and fast.

  • How to Determine How Much Cargo Weight a 2002 Ford Windstar Can Safely Carry
    The gross vehicle weight rating of your 2002 Ford Windstar is 5,483 lbs. That means that if you subtract the curb weight of your Windstar from the 5,483 then you would know how much cargo you can carry inside your van. If you are unsure of your curb weight you could go to a weigh station and determine exactly what your vehicle weighs to get an exact amount of cargo weight your vehicle can handle.
