This fully welded, corrosion-resistant vehicle trailer hitch receiver is perfect for your light-duty towing needs. Draw-Tite's Tested Tough guarantee ensures that this hitch exceeds industry standards. Drawbar sold separately.
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 this 2010 Hyundai Sonata we are going to install part number 24757 from Draw-Tite. This also applies to part number 60816 from Hidden Hitch. The first thing that we need to do to start off is we need to remove this panel right here. What is going to happen is the arm of the hitch is going to go right through this part of this right here. So we are just going to take it down and leave it off. It really does not serve much of a purpose and the hitch will be in the way anyways. It looks like there are two fasteners hiding back here too, one here and here. You can see that this is where, if the vehicle had dual exhaust, it would be in this spot here. So that is what that panel did, basically enclosed that area. 0:38
With the panel down, now we can see the attachment points on the vehicle. We are going to use this hole right here which has factory threads inside which makes it easy. And it is also going to use the center tie-down loop on the on the trunk panel. It is going to be the same thing over on the passenger side. However, the exhaust is going to be right next to it so it will be a little tight of a working area. But, we should not have to take down the exhaust. The first thing we do to start installing the hitch, we will start off with the U-bolt that goes over the tie-down point first. We will hang the hitch from that and then we will leave it loose so we can work our hitch around to line up with the holes on the side of the frame. 1:18
A quick bit about these fasteners. This is the bolt that goes inside the frame rail and this is the conical tooth washer. And they go together just like that. Okay, we have that one installed but we are going to leave it loose because we still need some working room back over on the other side, and that is going to be on the passenger side with the exhaust. Once we have all of our bolts started, then we can go ahead and snug them down into place. Alright, now that we have all of the bolts snugged down, we will go ahead and torque the bolts down as specified in the instructions. With those few steps our hitch is already installed and there you have it for part number 24757 from Draw-Tite. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground on this particular vehicle it is 10-1/2 inches. And from the center of the hitch pin to the outer edge of the bumper is about 6 inches.

Installation of the hitch was a disaster. I expected to do the job in an hour or two with only minor part removal. This was not the case. The reason for purchasing the hitch was based on the instructions and video stating the hitch bolts to the existing car frame using existing welded nuts in the frame. This is not the case at all. The hole was there but no threaded nut. I had to remove the complete bumper and all the parts hidden by the bumper shroud. Then I had to remove the bumper extensions which go into the car frame and are used to hold the bumper in place. This allowed me access to the square tube frame and put a nut on the inside of the frame where your instructions stated the welded nut was supposed to be. It turns out the welded nut does exist but is much further in the frame (about 8 inches more) but would not work because the exhaust (mufflers) would be in the way to get the supports in place used by the hitch and were on the opposite side of the frame. I finally got the hitch installed which took more than 10 hours of real work (not clock time). Knowing what I know now I would have never bought the hitch and the wiring kit. It is not that the hitch was defective it was being mislead on the install time and the work involved to get the hitch installed. I restore cars as a hobby so I am very familiar with working on cars and modifying parts to get them to fit. I would definitely NOT consider this a DIY project for someone that does not have extensive knowledge of cars and the proper tools to do the installation. As stated with the wiring kits, I purchased twice before from eTailor and I liked their product. Unfortunately this installation was NOT the case. Sorry to see the quality drop to such a "poor" state. 79107

The Hitch was exactly as described in the listing. It fit perfectly and was very easy to install. All parts needed for installation was there. I was amazed when I ordered it on Monday at 3:45 and it was delivered before noon the next day. I didn't realize that they less than 100 miles away. I expected 3 -5 day delivery. It was an exceptionally great experience. 120396

I purchased this hitch from etrailer.com on a Monday and it arrived Friday afternoon as expected. I was apprehensive about doing this on my own but decided I would give it a try after reading other reviews. I own a 2008 Hyundai Sonata. This was very simple to install. On my car we did not have to lower the exhaust to install the hitch. If we had, we would have had a little more room to work the sockets but we were able to maneuver enough without touching the exhaust. We did not have/need ramps....there was enough room to move without. Honestly, it took me and a friend just over an hour to install the hitch and the wiring harness for the trailer (watch the video and it's simple). Tips for success: 1. Have a friend help...an extra set of hands was nice to have. 2. If you have a cordless socket wrench like the video shows use it. 3. Take a few minutes to clean out the holes in the frame for the bolts to go in. I didn't have that little brush in the video and wished I did! This was so easy I volunteered to help my brother do his when he buys one! 92098

It is a good looking hitch that tows well. The installation instruction videos on this website, where the key in making my purchase decision. They were a big help and helped me make sure I was buying the right part, and it was something I could install myself. One trick I found with an at home installation is to use a jack to raise up the trailer hitch into place. It was too tough to get everything aligned and started without the jack. Also on the 2006 Hyundai Sonata, there isn't a lot of clearance for the torque wrench for the body bolts, so may sure you get the shortest handle you can find. For the u bolt nuts, make sure you have a deep socket or you won't be able to torque down the nuts at the end. It was an easy, if long install, but the problem was due more to not figuring out the jack trick right away, and having too long a torque wrench. Such a good experience with etrailer, that I've already recommended it to a couple of people. Hitches for everyone! 80387

We ordered this hitch and the suggested wiring kit for a 2006 Sonata (with dual exhaust). The package arrived at least 1 day sooner than I was expecting - nice!!!. Fortunately, the frame threads were very clean and needed no tapping. I decided to install the hitch without removing the exhaust shields or lowering the exhaust or jacking up the vehicle. This was relatively easy however there is not much space to get a hand up in the area where the frame bolts go thus I can understand the video showing some disassembly first. Total time to install this way was almost exactly 1 hour. I could have done this about 20 minutes faster with a power ratchet. The wiring harness was even easier to install. It took about 30 minutes from start to verifying everything was working. And another 10 minutes to put back inside body panels. Excellent products, excellent shipping and excellent videos! 154936

Bought this for my 2006 Hyundai Sonata to carry a Nashbar bike rack. Super easy install. Do yourself a favor and use some ramps or jack stands. Getting underneath your car is cramped and fiddly. Having some extra room really makes it easy. 210467
I just installed this hitch on my 08 Sonata, and I’m here to tell you just how easy it truly was. You have just three bolts and if you can hold a wrench in your hand, you can do it. One thing I would like you to note is if you live in a four season environment. The bolt hole that is closes to the muffler may have some rust on the threads. I would work the blot in first before you try installing your new hitch. Second note: The use of the box that the hitch was delivered in. The box is thick enough to work as a good mat for laying on the ground. Even thing went as the video showed and in 1,2,3, I was done. I love cycling and this hitch will allow me to transport my bicycles in safety via a hitch rack. Every time I ride, this hitch we be indispensable. Top quality product and an awesome price! Thank you etrailer.com 28854
Everything looks good. Installed it in about thirty minutes. I did have the advantage of being able to do it on a friends hoist. Delivery time was great. Wiring took me about thirty minutes. Instructions were good. Would recommend to a friend. 227142
Arrived very quickly and one day early. Actually had my 12 year old daughter install this. Two things on the instructions, (1) you will need a 17mm not an 18mm socket or wrench. And (2) the driver side appearance panel can be reinstalled if you cut a notch in the rear of the panel to allow clearance for the hitch support rod. All told, took about an hour even with teaching my daughter. While she installed the hitch (yes, I checked behind her), I installed the wiring adapter in the trunk. I had watched the installation video so I knew where everything was. Took maybe ten minutes from start to finish. Extremely easy install, well made and looks great. 83016

It was a little tight for one person, lying on the ground, used my leg to hold the hitch up while I tried to get the u-bolt connected. also took patience to get the two bolts started, Cha Cha, which means slow and easy in Thai needs to be considered when tightening bolts that had limited access. I bought a Thule rack in parralel with this hitch. I did a quick check and I don't think the safety pin on the bike rake will line up with the safety pin hole on the hitch. Looks like I will need to drill a hole. I wish I had discovered this hitch earlier. It took maybe 30 minutes lying on the ground and I was very pleases with how well the installation went. 28907

I had ordered a trailer hitch receiver, draw bar, and wiring harness for my 2009 Hyundai Sonata. They arrived on time and in perfect condition. The installation process was made easy due to their on-line tutorials. In fact I had everything installed and ready to use in less than 45 minutes. I would recommend etrailer.com to anyone. The staff and correspondence both by phone and email were excellent thus providing a fantastic on-line experience. Other sites should model their business practices after this organization. I will definitely utilize their services in the future if the need arises. Thank you etrailer for a job well done. 32407

Hitch and other items delivered on time. The hitch was supposed to ship with a draw-bar (ball mount) but it wasn't in the box. Which by the way was excellent packaging. Called upon receipt and checking the box and was told the missing item would be sent out today (Monday). Very good customer service. The hitch itself was easily installed and the video proved to be invaluable. I will save a trip to the storage lot to deliver the tow caddy by pulling it with the vehicle that will be pulled behind the motor home. This is my second purchase from them and have been very satisfied on both occastions 88385
by: John C.07/06/2011
last year I paid over $400 for my local mechanic to install a Class I hitch on my other car so I was eager to install one myself on my second car for $150. All went as the instructions showed except-the u-bolt included for the center mount was too short. Had to get run to Lowes for another. Also, I struggled to get the two main bolts fully installed in the weld nuts on the frame. Should have read the "Helpful INfo" section on this first. Would have saved time it took to remove bolts, clean holes, lube bolts and reinstall. Would do again 18677
by: Richard D08/29/2013
I was very pleased with the hitch and wiring harness. The installation of the hitch went ok tight working conditions without benefit of being able to raise car off the ground, however a good product and good fit. The installation of the wiring harness was very easy, a fine product. I don't like wasting my money! The purchase of the tube cover was a waste of money, due to the fact that the hitch came with one. Your rep. should have made me aware of that. Overall I am very satisfied with the products and the prompt delivery. Thank You ! 97471
by: Dave H07/27/2013
So far I like the ease of how it installed according to my mechanic. He said the hardest part was cleaning out the holes in the frame to prepare them for the hitch bolts. Looked very discreet on the rear of my Hyundai. Now as for Etrailer.com. What a knockout of a company. They hit on all the notes for great performance. Was really impressed. Special Kudos to Wayne - he do know his stuff. But so did the other person I talked to. Amazing experience! 91955
by: Pat H.07/13/2011
This was one of the best experiences I have ever had. My items were shipped early. The quality of the items was excellent. The installation of the harness and hitch was exactly as described and extremely simple. Communicaitons from etrailer were very prompt and effective. I could not be happier. I would recommend them to anyone needing similar products. Great job, etrailer!!! You guys have the right approach to customer service. Pat H. 19362

Easy Perfect Fit! So amazingly simple and even easier than the video on the web site. Was done in 5 minutes. Shipping was tracked and showed up 2 days ahead of schedule. Email notifications at every step. Can't say enough good about this product. Better than described and very strong and sturdy. I really feel great about this purchase and I most certainly got my monies worth. 64743

I ordered a Draw-Tite hitch for my Hyundai Sonata, I could not be happier with my purchase. Ordering was easy, I called in my order, it shipped the same day, I was able to track the package right to my door step. Installation was easy, it took me almost exactly 30 minutes to install. I would HIGHLY recommend this hitch, and I will be purchasing from etrailer.com again. Thank you. 42228
by: Don D10/24/2013
Very easy to install. I did it without a hoist or any other method to raise the car. I suggest that the next person attach the right (passenger side) before the left (driver side) if you have a single exhaust. I started with the left (driver-side), but after some initial struggle, I removed that 'loose' attachment and then the rest of the installation went easily. 104940
by: Lenny P.05/17/2011
The DrawTite Hitch Receiver was a perfect fit on my '08 Sonata. Installation was easy even without the instructional video and the quality of the welds and finish on the product was flawless. I strongly recommend the optional T-One Wiring Harness with its' plug in and go installation getting you on the road with out any wiring hassles at all. 14611
by: Todd W.09/28/2011
I installed this trailer hitch in about 20 minutes. That includes the time it took to get it out of the box. I did not move or jack up my car in any way, this was done lying on the apron of my driveway behind my car. This job was simple, it then took me about 40 minutes to hook up the wiring harness. This is a great product! 24815
by: Dale D.02/28/2011
The product was delivered on time. The wiring kit was very easy to install after reviewing the video. The trailer hitch lined up prefectly and the hardware fit great. This company provides a very good product at a most reasonable price. I am a very satisfied customer and will be looking here first for all my trailer needs. 8109

HItch was ordered on a Monday and arrived on Thursday. I installed the hitch on a 2009 Hyundai Sonata. The video directions were spot on in guiding me through the installation, which took about thirty minutes. Great company w/ expedient delivery process, great product, and outstanding instructional videos on your website! 41641
by: craig f.03/01/2012
Hitch went on easily just as video showed. I backed my 2010 Sonata unto a couple of 10 inch ramps to allow me more room to work. Make sure whatever you are inserting into the 1 1/4" hitch slides in and out easily....my bike rack fit was too snug and had to be reduced, grinding off the coated black paint. 32944
by: Tom H07/01/2014
I installed the hitch on my 2008 Hyundai Sonata. The nuts that were welded to the frame for attaching were very rusty and needed cleaned out. I actually got a starter tap and penetrating lubricant to clean it out. Only took 30 minutes to install after chasing the threads with the starter tap. 138463
by: Chris F.03/31/2015
Hitch was car specific and found it be an accurate fit. Directions for mounting were spot on. All hardware was included. Center U bolt was two short do to my tow hook being bent. Local hardware store provided replacement. No fault of dealer. Found item to be good fit with 40 minute install. 181921
by: Jack R.08/01/2011
First off, the shipping upgrade was a nice touch. Thanks. Got the package this afternoon, and in a little less than 30 minutes had it installed. It's a little tight turning the ratchet (could have used a pneumatic ratchet) but everything fit fine. Thanks for delivering a great product. 20819
by: Skyler A04/29/2015
I drive a 2006 sonata and this hitch fits perfectly. My car isn't dual exhaust so it was even easier to install than the video etrailer has. Seems to be holding up well! I also had some questions with customer service and they were quick and friendly in responding. 188786
by: Alex F08/11/2014
Watched video, tried to install it and was confused. Watched video again and was able to install it with my wife little help to raise hitch. No mechanics, no lifts. I laid under the car on parking lot. I have Hyundai Sonata 2008 6 cylinders (two exhausts). Thank you. 145813
by: Ben H09/14/2016
Everything came as described and packed well. I did not even have to lower the exhaust. Fit right in and with only 3 attachment points, I had the hitch on in a little over 30 minutes! I have towed several times with it so far and seems to be doing well. Thanks! 294827
by: robert P04/16/2011

by: Claude H. Jr.12/29/2013
Quick delivery. Very clear instructions. Easy to install. I cleaned the threaded nuts that were in the frame of the car just to avoid complications. Cut a slot in the plastic trim that had to be removed so it could be replaced. 111437
by: David D.04/03/2012
I received this in just a few days for regular shipping. Instalation was simple. I did have to use a smaller ratchet for the bolts near the exhaust as space is limited for your hand. I would recomend this for a Hyundai Sonata. 36058
by: Richard B.04/26/2012
Hitch arrived on tme and in great condition. Installation followed your online video exactly. I knew in advance what had to be done, what tools to have ready and how long it would take. This was an excellernt experience. 38415

by: Ed W05/13/2014
The hitch was much easier to install than expected. Had the whole thing connected in about 30 minutes--and I am not any type of mechanic. Looks good, is hidden under the bumper, very good product. 130339

Found exactly what I was looking for. And THEN .... I received a call to let me know that one of the parts I ordered was wrong. They then worked with me to make sure I DID get the right parts. 167262
Hitch was not as easily installed as shown in the video or instructions. Additional information was quickly given by Customer Support, and the hitch was installed in about 30 minutes. 106432

Very easy to install. The hitch could have been packed better. It arrived with the box torn and scratches on the hitch that will eventually rust. Delivery was very quick. 10703
by: Alan L.07/04/2011
Simple installation with provided hardware, wiring harness just plugs into existing plugs/tail lights, great fit. Took less than hour to install with wiring. Looks great. 18466
Arrived in 2 days and packaged well!!! If I have the occasion will certainly buy from this site! Support small business when they are excellent! And this one is!!! 234856
by: Roger S.08/25/2013
Hooked in as advertised!! Single exhaust, didn't even have to pull it! However I made my Brother in Law burn his arm....He was in a hurry. :) Hitch looks great! 96827
by: Mike W.02/18/2011
Was fairly easy to put on my Hyundai Sonata. I found it easier to put one bolt on the side first (not tighten it) to help support putting on the middle support. 7437
by: DON Q04/12/2012
PRICE WAS RIGHT, IT CAME ON TIME, ITEM LOOKS JUST LIKE WHAT I ORDERED. HAVEN'T INSTALLED IT YET BUT FEEL FROM THE MOVIE ON INSTALLING, IT SHOULD BE A BREEZE 37029
