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. Technical Support

At 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.

2001 Toyota RAV4

The trailer hitch receiver has worked well for pulling a small, 3' x 5.5' trailer, from Montana to Alaska and back to Vancouver BC. It was fairly easy to install, with the exception that one of the bolt holes in my car frame was rusted and need to be tapped before installation (which I was able to do by hand once I got the correct sized thread tap). When I remove the hitch the receiver does not stick out too far beyond the rear bumper. So far there is no rust on the receiver hitch and I have not had to worry about it at all since installation, highly recommended! At the time I bought it (March 2018) this was the cheapest option I could find.

My only complaint is that I wish it dropped a little lower (1") because I cannot open the trunk of my 2001 Toyota Rav4 when the trailer is attached.

2000 Toyota RAV4

I purchased this class1 hitch for my RAV4 along with a custom wiring harness. I work around metal and welders who are always making stuff out of metal, I must say I was very happy with the quality, it looks strong and well made. My RAV4 is only rated for a trailer with 1500 pounds so I didn't want a bulky hitch, the Class 1 hitch I got is the lowest rating available at 2000 pounds and it's not going to add excess weight to my rig. I love it. To other RAV4 owners I would say, installation is a piece of cake, just 4 bolts. Be very careful removing tow hook bolts so u don't break loose the nuts welded inside the frame, use some penetrating lube and stop if u meet any resistance. Let em soak.
The wiring harness was an easy install as well, it had rav specific instructions, it jousts plugs in line between you connectors that hook to your tail light. Took me about 30 min.

2005 Toyota RAV4

The hitch arrived a day earlier than promised, fit my 2005 RAV4 perfectly, and is relatively snug under the rear panel. It does not affect ground clearance. I only installed it yesterday, so have not tested its operation, but am convinced that it is solid and safe.

Im still quite happy with the product.
Terry B - 08/03/2018


Put the hitch on outside in the cold in about 30 minutes . took a picture on my phone but it wouldn't Work right sorry about that. But fit perfectly; excellent product.

1996 Toyota RAV4

Good product .Good fit on my rav4 I have a small trailer I want to use for camping and hunting . ERICA WAS VERY HELPFUL

2005 Toyota RAV4

The trailer hitch appears to be well made, looking foward to making use of it.

At this time, the hitch can't be placed on the vehicle because the mounting bolts were not in the package. I had to make and additional phone call to request that a set be sent. Etrailer rep. took time to call the manufacture to request that the bolts be sent. Needless to say I was not happy.

1999 Toyota RAV4

Just install the hitch and wiring harness on my RAV4. Took an hour and half. I ordered the product Tuesday. Arrived Wednesday. Installed on Thursday. For something that seems hard was extremely easy and I saved money doing it myself. Wish everything went this smooth. Thank you!


It’s awesome perfectly fit on my 98 2dr rav4 they are easy to put took one person to do that’s me!


All around good experience, with etrailer putting together excellent suggestions for all needed parts for a DIY trailer installation specifically for my vehicle. Very fast shipment. Adequate instructions included for the reasonably experienced do-it-yourselfer. Everything worked as expected. My only complaint would be that one end of the hitch was somewhat exposed during shipping resulting in some chips in the powder coating. That was probably the carrier's fault, but some better wrapping would have helped, too.

2002 Toyota RAV4

Receiver hitch was exactly as advertised. It fit perfectly and installation only took about 15 min. Thanks to you for excellent service when ordering and to DrawTite for a good product.

  • Will Installation of Draw-Tite Class I Hitch # 24704 on 2003 Toyota RAV4 Interfere With Muffler

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for use on Both a 2003 and a 2011 Toyota RAV4
    I checked with our bike rack manufacturers and there is not a spare tire mounted bike rack that will work on either your 2003 or 2011 RAV4. It looks like your only option would be to install a hitch on both of the vehicles and then use a hitch mounted bike rack between the two. For the 2003 model, you want Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 24704 (see attached installation instructions). For the 2011, I would recommend a Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 36588. Then for a bike rack I recommend the Swagman...
