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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2013 Toyota Prius - Draw-Tite

Today on this 2013 Toyota Prius we'll be installing a Draw-Tite Hitch, part number 24847. This is what the hitch looks like installed. Here's some measurements to help you select some accessories for your hitch such as a ball mount, a bicycle rack or a cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper is approximately one and a half inches. From the top of the receiver opening to the ground is approximately 11 1/4 inches.Now let's go ahead and install our hitch. To begin with you'll need to locate the four bolts that'll need to be removed from the factory.

The first two are on the driver's side and they are holding up the tow hook. You will need to use an extension on your socket to reach up in there and be able to pull the bolts out. Be careful with removing these bolts and when you pull them you down don't let them slip out of the socket and fall into the underbody panel of the vehicle as they may be difficult to retrieve.Once you have the tow hook removed we will move over to the passenger side where you'll remove the two bolts holding up the exhaust hanger. You may need to pull the exhaust over to one side or the other to allow you to get the socket as well as the extension up in there to remove the two bolts. You may also find that a wrench is easier to use but in this case we have a swivel head on the end of our extension.Now that you have these four bolts removed you will not reuse them.

Now that we have the old hardware removed here's what our new hardware will look like on our Draw-Tite hitch. You will see that you will use a bolt and as well as a conical tooth washer. You want to make sure that the conical teeth face towards the hitch. Now we're ready to go ahead and install our hitch.You want to make sure that on the passenger side you insert the hitch in between the frame and the exhaust hanger. The bolt will go through the exhaust hanger, through the hitch and into the frame.

Now that we have a bolt on one side let's move to the other side and loosely put one bolt in there. Once you have all four bolts installed go ahead and snug them. Once they are snugged now you can go ahead and torque them to the manufacturer's specifications.You will notice on the passenger side one of the bolts because of the exhaust hanger was a little difficult to get to. In this situation we used a crow's foot to help tighten down that bolt. That'll do it for the installation of our Draw-Tite Hitch, part number 24847 on our 2013 Toyota Prius..

Installed on my 2014 Prius three. Instructions were straightforward. Installation was easy. Works flawlessly with a Swagman XTC2 Hitch Bike Rack. The trailer hitch receiver was reasonably priced and worth every penny. 639860

We got a defective one that had part of the welding material in the square receiver part of the hitch deep in the hole that prevented the carrier to be fully inserted. Of course we did not discover the defect until after we had paid to have it installed on the car. I tried to grind the slag away with a dremel but found it to difficult. So I ground a small notch on the carrier tongue to allow it to fully sit in the receiver. I never asked for a replacement since I thought that the cost to uninstall and reinstall the replacement would be excessive. 595226


Comments

The stop you describe is intentionally punched into the side of the receiver tube. Its purpose is to prevent Class II-rated accessories that have a higher weight rating from being used in a Class I hitch. Exceeding the weight rating on a Class I hitch could possibly cause the hitch or its attachment points to the vehicle to fail.

I will start with the draw bar, which is not part of the trailer hitch receiver, but many people will purchase that also with the receiver, and I found no where else on the site to review it. The finish on the draw bar was poor. The paint was badly chipped, and unpainted areas were lightly rusted. It looked like someone attempted to touch up the paint before it was shipped to me, but the paint in other areas continued to flake off. These cosmetics did not affect the function of the draw bar. It was solidly constructed, the welds looked good, and it was a good fit into the receiver. When full inserted into the receiver, the holes lined up so it was easy to insert the pin. The manufacturer just needs to learn how to paint. In contrast, the finish on the hitch frame and receiver was very good. The hitch seemed well built and designed, and was an excellent fit to the frame rails of my Prius. The written instructions were adequate, but did not discuss the interference of the hitch with the muffler heat shield. This is covered in the excellent video on etrailer's website, and the installer should definitely review both sources of information before installation. It is claimed that the hitch installation is a 30 minute job, and that is probably true on a new car, but my Prius is a 2010 model with 158,000 miles on it, and it took me over 2 hours and 30 minutes to prepare, do the installation, and clean up afterwards (not including the hour it took for me to write this review). None of this extra time was due to inadequacies of the hitch or installation instructions, but be prepared for extra time if you run into problems. My Problem #1 was excessive corrosion of the four bolt heads of the bolts that have to be removed and discarded before the hitch can be installed. This corrosion was so bad, that I could not get the 17mm socket onto the bolt heads. I had to scrape the corrosion off with a screwdriver, and in some case use a hammer an chisel to reshape the bolt heads so the socket would fit. This was a time consuming process because two of the bolts were located in a deep well with limited access unless you remove the cover panel. Use a six point socket to remove what is left of the bolts to make sure you do not round off the bolt heads. Even after soaking them in penetrating oil, it took an uncomfortable amount of torque to remove those bolts, and I was afraid the weld nuts or bolts would break before the bolts unscrewed (which would be a serious problem), but the bolts did unscrew. The new 19mm bolts supplied threaded in easily. Problem #2 was the aluminum heat shield around the muffler. The edge of that heat shield has to be temporarily bent out of the way to get the hitch in place. As soon as I grabbed it with a pliers, it fell off the car. It was held on only by corrosion. Normally it is held on by 3 bolts, but the shield is aluminum, and the bolts and frame are steel, so the aluminum becomes a sacrificial anode, and the 1/4 inch mounting holes become 3/4 inch holes. I had to remove the three mounting bolts, coat everything with anti-seize to reduce future corrosion, and remount the heat shield with 1 1/2 inch fender washers to cover the large holes in the head shield. The rest of the installation was uneventful, and relatively easy. I plan to use the hitch to tow a light trailer to move a small home built airplane to the airport and back, and occasionally carry a bicycle or two. Note that Etrailer supplies trailer hitches for all models of Prii, but diplomatically recommends that, before purchasing, you check with Toyota to get their recommendations. I am sure they know that Toyota does not recommend putting a trailer hitch on any Prius for any reason before the 2016 model year. If you do some research on the internet you will find all kinds of warnings against towing with a Prius including inadequate brakes, hybrid system damage, or transmission damage. I have found no real data to support any of this. On the other hand there are many reports of people that have been towing with Prii for years, including several reports by people who have towed light trailers coast to coast with no problems. However, there are reports of people who have run their traction batteries down towing trailers up mountains. The only change I can find that Toyota made to the Prius in 2016 so they could ok towing was an increase in the cooling capacity of the hybrid system (probably the inverter cooling capacity). So my conclusion is if I tow a light trailer, at moderate speeds, on relatively level roads, I am not going to have any problems. If you have any concerns, you should do your own research. Another option is to install after market monitoring equipment. I found many recommendations for the Scangauge 2 ($160), which will allow you to monitor the engine temperature and many parameters of the hybrid system. There are other less capable monitors for around $60. --Joel 520227

It took about half an hour to install. The hardest part was removing the rubber muffler mount from its bracket, and even that wasn't hard. You have to bend the aluminum muffler heat shield a little to get things to fit; it's pretty self-evident what needs to be done. 199147

This is a very solid product that fits perfectly on my 2012 Prius. I looked at the video several times and read the comments posted here. Installation took me about an hour and twenty minutes, with the time spent as follows. I did this with the car on the ground, not on a lift. Ducking under and back to get tools, etc. adds to the installation time, but it is easier to support the hitch during installation. I did not really have a helper, except for asking my 12 year old daughter to aim a flashlight for me. Not having a helper also adds to the installation time, but it can be done. 1. Removing tie-down hook. Easy, took about 5 minutes. Made sure not to drop the bolts/washers behind the appearance panel. 2. 10-15 minutes trying to remove the muffler from the support post before heeding the advice on the instructions and spraying soapy water onto the rubber isolator, after which it took just a minute. 5 minutes removing the bolts from the rear muffler hanger. Had a U-joint on my wrench, but the length of the socket was such that it was a tight fit with the muffler exhaust. The video shows use of a "cat's paw" type of socket wrench, which would have been really handy for the bolts near the muffler. 3. Installing driver's side of hitch. 20 minutes spent fishing out a bolt and washer that dropped behind the appearance panel. My magnetic finding tool did not work well, had to use my hand to find them--not easy. As some other posts have noted, the old bolts were tapered, allowing installation at an angle a degree or two from perpendicular. The new bolts are not tapered, and must be inserted exactly perpendicular to the insertion hole. If you are off even a degree, the threads will not bite. That is how I dropped the bolt behind the panel. Since I was installing this myself with no helper, I had to hold up the hitch with one hand and work the socket wrench with my other hand. Ultimately, I opted to use the original tapered bolts to install the hitch initially, then removed them one at a time and used the new bolts, which were then easy to install because everything was already aligned. 4. Installing passenger side of hitch. This was definitely a tighter area to work through, and I ended up using the original bolts for one of the fasteners because the new bolt and washer interfered with the heat shield and I did not feel like bending the heat shield. I really wish I had the cats paw socket/wrench for the passenger side, but it all worked out fine in the end. Conclusion: after installation, I was impressed by how securely this hitch fits. It is rock solid. If I had to do the installation over again, I would probably get a real helper, use the tapered bolts initially to get things aligned perfectly, make sure not to drop bolts behind the appearance panel, spray the soapy water on the rubber isolator right away, get a better light to see what I was doing, especially with the driver's side, and get a cats paw type of socket for the passenger side bolts. 97669

etrailer did a fine job as expected. Hitch came very well packed with additional cardboard holding it securely in the box. They also taped the bike rack hitch lock I ordered with it securely to the hitch so it wouldn't fly around in the box. The DrawTite hitch was an easy 20 minute install with 4 bolts. The Prius V doesn't have the protective bottom cover like the normal Prius does which makes it much easier to access the existing bolts. And since there were 4 existing bolts in place in the frame of my 2012 Prius V (for the muffler hanger and tow hook), I didn't have to deal with any rusty in-frame nuts. Hitch fit perfectly and seems plenty sturdy. I did have to do a little flat filing to the inside of the hitch (see photo) where the large hole on one side had a burr that kept the bike rack tongue from sliding in easily. 388605

I spent the better part of the afternoon installing this. I lost track of time. I can offer some suggestions to help others speed the installation along. I would start with soaking the rubber muffler hanger with oil. Oil is like moisturizing lotion for rubber, so would suggest oil over soap. Let it soak while you start removing the bolts from the driver-side tow bracket. You will need a six-inch extension and either a 17 or 19 mm socket. Mine were 19mm (2011) although numerous YouTube videos say 17mm. I use an air impact wrench, so those bolts were out in a snap. When you remove the second bolt, hold onto the bracket with your hands, and let the bolt come through the opening, then remove the bracket. I was lucky and did not lose any bolts inside the appearance cover, but if you do drop a bolt, I can see it taking a long time to retrieve. Don't be in a rush. Remove the rubber hanger with a large flat bar. I used a carpenters prying tool which worked well. Should take 2 or 3 min. Once the muffler is disconnected from the bracket, it's far easier to get a socket over the bolts. Remove both bolts from the muffler bracket. There is a second muffler hanger, so the muffler will not fall to the ground. Now the fun part! Get yourself a couple of 4 x 4's or equivalent height supports. First angle the driver side flange through the hole, then slide your 4 x 4 under, making sure the opposite side goes around the muffler. Attach the passenger side of the hitch flange using a stock bolt WITHOUT the bracket. I'll explain why in a second. You only need one bolt, and just snug it up to the flange. Before I forget and before you forget, you will need to bend back the metal heat shield for the muffler or you will not be able to line up the holes on the hitch flange. I guess you could always put the flange on top of the heat shield as well, but it will lay flatter if you move it out of the way. It's very light metal. Once you have one bolt in move over to the driver side and use the stock bolts to mount the flange. Just snug them up. Now, remove one of the bolts and replace with the new bolts with the concentric washer. To get it through the hole easily move the washer away from the bolt head a tad, and angle it around the opening. It won't fit if you try to go in straight. Then with your extension and socket attached, it's time for your little game of electrocution. Slow and steady, and you should be able to thread the bolt. The square head of the new bolts makes it extremely difficult to thread. You need to be dead nuts lined up or it's not going to happen. This is the reason you put the stock bolts in first!! I can't stress this part enough. I wasted 20 min. trying to get the new bolts in, before I realized I was better off using the stock ones to align things first. That part should take you about 15 min. Keep the bolts loose for now. Now you can remove the single bolt you had in the opposite bracket by the muffler. Get your muffler hanger bracket up there, and with some really good light make sure the holes are aligned. Again, though square heads of the bolts will drive you crazy. Everything has to be perfectly aligned. I spent another 20 min. getting those two bolts aligned and threaded. Make sure they go in by hand a number of turns before putting a wrench on them. Now it's just a matter of tightening everything up to 65 foot pounds. It all sounds really simple, but it was quite frustrating for me. Lastly, make sure you put a good dose of oil in hole for the muffler bracket, and it should pop right on. I can imagine this taking less than 45 min. if you follow my instructions precisely. if you don't follow the instructions, plan on being frustrated. I think it near impossible to hold this thing in place (unless you've got really good upper body strength) and get those square head bolts aligned before you become fatigued. I hope others use my technique listed above. You don't have to hold the hitch up at all this way. I think if I was to do it again I could probably do it in an hour. As I said, I'd lost track of time so I'm not sure how long it took me, but I can say it wasn't fun! The hitch itself looks very nice, and even nicer with one of the hitch covers. I have a feeling the wiring will be a piece a cake by comparison. Good luck to everybody. If you're not mechanically inclined, I strongly suggest taking this to a shop and spending 100 bucks to have it done professionally. 397222

I installed this Draw-Tite trailer hitch on our 2012 Prius to carry bicycles with our Thule 2-bike carrier. Installation took about 45 minutes. The installation video on the etrailer.com website was a big help. I used a stack of scrap lumber to hold the hitch in place while I bolted it in place. As others have noted, I bent about a quarter inch of the heat shield so the hitch mated flat against the frame. The shield is soft metal so this is no trouble at all. For some reason it took me longer than I would have expected to get the bolts started in the holes on the passenger side. I think this was a combination of my gloved hand and the tight space around the muffler. The driver's side bolts found their way much easier. I used the socket and extension to seat them and that's probably what I should have done on the passenger side, too, instead of trying to do it with my hand in that cramped space. I saw in another review that someone that is 6 feet tall and 170 lbs. had difficulty installing this hitch. I, too, am 6 feet tall and 170 lbs. and did not have trouble getting under the vehicle. The tools needed were exactly as stated (although you may find pliers helpful to bend the heat shield). I would recommend this hitch to others considering it for their similar Prius model. 272853

My son-in-law and I installed this hitch on a 2012 Toyota Prius V. The video for the install on a Prius is accurate for a Prius V with the exception that a Prius V does not have cosmetic cowling on the underbody that has to be removed. The install was straightforward and we had the hitch on in about 45 minutes. Other than the receiver on the hitch, you can't see the hitch without bending down and looking under the bumper. I personally like the aesthetics. We're using the hitch with the Swagman XTC-2 bike carrier and the combination is ideal for transporting our two bicycles. The fit between the hitch and bike carrier is tight and the Swagman allows us to drop the middle bar down for access to open the rear hatch of the vehicle when the bikes are not in the carrier but leaving the bike carrier attached. We bought the Prius V so we could carry passengers, gear and two bicycles on trips. The draw-tite hitch and Swagman XTC-2 give us the flexibility to do that. Here's some pictures to demonstrate as I've had a difficult time finding photos on the web showing a Prius V with hitch and bicycle carrier installed. I have a cover on the hitch receiver in some photos, sorry I took the photos at night with a flash, but hey, I did the review! Good luck. Oh, by the way, like others have written, E Trailer was on top of things from the get go and I received numerous e-mails about the status of my order and follow-up after my receipt. Only took three business days between the date of my order and delivery to my home. The hitch and bike carrier were boxed and then inserted into another heavy duty shipping box. There were a few small tears in the outer box (assume from rough handling by the delivery carrier) but the contents were not damaged in any way. I would definitely order again from etrailer.com. 54981

I purchased this hitch for my 2013 Toyota Prius 2 so I could attach the Swagman XTC-2 bike rack. I was able to install it properly by myself using the instructions that came with the hitch, but it did take some patience and creativity. The hitch itself is sturdy, fits well on the car, and is unobtrusive. etrailer did a great job packaging the hitch with none of the problems and damage that have been reported by users who purchased the same hitch from Amazon. Installation is theoretically very simple. Take the muffler off the rubber hanger on the passenger-side tow hook. Remove the four bolts that hold the two tow hooks to the frame of the vehicle with a 19 mm socket. Bolt the hitch to the frame with the four 19 mm bolts and the conical washers that come with the hitch kit. At this point you will also replace the tow hook that includes the hanger for the muffler but not the driver-side tow hook. Reattach the muffler to the rubber hanger. Here are some tips that I think will make the installation process smoother. 1. Spray a soapy water solution on the muffler hanger before attempting to remove it. The lubrication will significantly decrease the effort needed to remove the muffler pin from the rubber hanger. 2. Make sure you have at least a 6" extension for your socket to give you enough clearance when removing and attaching the bolts. I would say that an 8" extension would be ideal. 3. On the passenger side, you should probably bend the edges of the muffler heat shield down about 1/4" to provide clearance for the flange of the hitch. You could just bolt the hitch in without doing this, but the trailing edge of the heat shield will be clamped between the hitch flange and the car's frame. This seemed like a bad idea to me because it would transfer heat from the shield directly to the frame of the car and it might facilitate vibrations from the shield to the frame, which could produce an annoying sound. (I've been in cars with heat shields that had been bent so they touched the frame, and it created an unpleasant buzzing at times.) 4. If you're installing the hitch by yourself, have something that you can prop up the the hitch with until you have started at least one bolt on either end of the hitch. If you don't, getting the bolts started is going to take a lot of contortions to hold the hitch in the correct alignment. 143058

In the year since I installed this hitch, Ive had absolutely no problems, and, given the simplicity of the product, I expect it will continue to work without problems for the life of my car.

We have a 2014 PriusV and needed a trailer hitch for towing a 15 foot sailboat we recently bought. Problem was, Toyota recommends not towing with the PriusV. An Internet search revealed there were a few companies that had light weight hitches available specifically designed for the Prius models. After reading reviews, we decided on etrailers.com due to hitch design, hitch accessories (i.e., draw bar and wiring), price, free shipping, and supposedly easy installation in 30 minutes. I called etrailer.com to ask a question and the agent told me that if I ordered the hitch package I needed at the time of my call (Monday) I would have the parts in hand by Friday so I placed my order. Parts arrived as expected. What a pleasant surprise, product quality surpassed my expectations! Being a technical person I found all the directions remarkably well written with excellent supporting drawings and photos. I installed the hitch by myself in roughly 15 minutes. Installing the wiring took a little more time due more disassembly of panels to channel wiring as well as some simple assembly needed on wiring. The entire process took less than an hour and looks professionally installed. I'm very happy with the overall experience and highly recommend etrailer.com for all your hitch needs. 469438

This was the easiest hitch I have ever installed. It fit perfect and the whole job was done in 15 minutes. The service from the extremely fast shipping to all the information on your site made for a easy job. I called my Toyota dealer to see if they could install it for me and they wanted to charge me $150.00 to remove and install 4 bolts. Like I said I did the job myself in 15 minutes saving $150.00 installation fee from them. I would recommend this hitch to everyone looking for a hitch to carry a mobility scooter or wheelchair. Thanks again for the excellent service. 110480

This hitch was made to fit the vehicle easily. Etrailor provides product support with installation and questions and answers from support staff. I would recommend using duct tape to keep bolt/socket from falling in the under body protection panel. The appearance is outstanding and I believe most novices could install. The hitch appears to be very durable. I will use with pro hitch carrier to haul action packer and ice chest. 209516

I had this hitch installed onto my 2015 Toyota Prius V and I love it! I initially installed it knowing I'd need it for a two-month trip out of state for military duty. I took my pets with me, which necessitated the use of an external cargo basket for my gear and other items. It performed flawlessly. I now use it mainly for for moving the lawn mower or christmas tree (in the basket). Highly recommended! 720139

The quality of the hitch is great, shipping was quick, no issues there. The only complaint I had was with the installation, which would have been stupid simple, except for one issue I ran into that I ran into with the included bolts. The factory bolts that were attached to the tow hook that you remove taper slightly at the end which makes them easier to line up and get started. However the new bolts included with the hitch are flat on the end, and it is challenging/impossible to get these threaded on the drivers side where you have a tiny access hole and cannot start it by hand. After 2-3 hours of trying and failing I gave up and just re-used the factory bolts on that side. So fingers crossed that using mismatched bolts doesn't cause any problems in the future... 696360

I was worried that the mounting holes would be off alignment, having read reviews for other trailer hitches that complained rubber mallets or hammers were needed for the final fitting due to poor manufacturing tolerances or damage during shipping, but I had no issues installing this hitch on my 2013 Prius. There are oval slots cut into the right side of the hitch that help with minor mounting hole misalignment. The only difficult part was sliding the exhaust off the rubber isolator, but this job was made easier with some dish soap and large tongue-and-groove pliers. 696024

The DrawTite 1 1/4" receiver hitch is a perfect fit for my 2012 Prius. There isn't much room to work, so it took a little longer than expected to install. Installed similar 2" hitches on CRV's which were a little easier to work on. If you don't have a lift, I would recommend 2 people for the Prius. I did 2 CR-Vs alone, but there was room to work with. I ordered the hitch on Saturday, it arrived on Wednesday (early) and had it installed by Saturday (ordered and installed in a week.....very nice). Time to start looking for a hitch-mount bike rack. Should be some good deals over Labor Day weekend... For Service and Price, etrailer.com is the way to go.....Thanks. 680552

Perfect fit on my 2010 Prius. The written instructions were not enough for me to understand completely what if any panels needed to be removed but the supplied video was very good at showing me what needed to be done. In the end I decided to work around the muffler and exhaust instead of remove the rubber hangings. I was afraid the rubber hangings might break when I pulled them off. With the tools I had I was able to remove and reinsert the new bolts without too much trouble. I did put a pilot bolt on the muffler side first without the muffler bracket, inserted the bolts on the toe hitch side and then went back and removed the pilot bolt and inserted the final bolts with the muffler bracket. That seemed to work best. Final install looks good. I plan to use MaxxHaul 1-1/4" to 2" Hitch Adapter With 4" Rise and then attach my 2 inch bike rack to that hitch adapter. That should give me a 4 additional inches of clearance off the ground for my bike and allow me to reuse my existing 2 inch rack on my Prius. 679144


Comments

Hitch adapters like # MT70355
MaxxTow Trailer Hitch Receiver Adapter - 1-1/4" (Class II) to 2" Hitch - 4-1/2" Rise
$29.95
are great. Keep in mind using an adapter will reduce your hitchs weight capacity by 50 percent.

Good product delivered quickly. I was able to install it by myself without jack stands or ramps. By propping up the receiver with my legs while laying on my side, it’s possible to align the two bolts on the drivers side loosely in place. You can then get the pax side using the same technics. It did take a while and some cuss words tho... Couple notes: Don’t drop the socket on the drivers side as it falls down into the under carriage covers and is difficult to retrieve. Don’t forget to bend the heat shield up to make the bolt holes line up. I used a bungee cord around the muffler & hooked the other end to the rear pax door hook to keep it out of the way while aligning the bolt holes of pax side. Watch the video, it helps. 668590

This can be done with the car on the ground and will take 1/2-3 hrs depending on your skill level.

The instructions were adequate but the online install video was much better. I backed my car up on to ramps for the installation. No problem with floor to placement height when maneuvering the hitch into position and getting a bolt started. A few tools to make the installation easier: an 18” screwdriver to pry the rubber muffler keeper off the bracket; a jack stand to stabilize the other side of the hitch during one person installation; a long wobbler extension to ease in loosening and tightening bolts, especially around the rear muffler bracket bolt. I’d say the 3 / 10 installation difficulty is accurate. The hitch looks good and is made to last. We’ll see how the powder coat finish holds up in the elements. I recommend this product. 644339

Solid product. Fit as designed on my 2014 PIP. Directions clear and accurate. I had trouble getting 1 bolt in until I used a jack to lift the car then I got the right angle.

People always ask, "What do you tow with a Prius?" My answer is, "Nothing. What looks like a trailer hitch to most is actually my external rear bumper guard and it works great to ward off tailgaters." It also saved my rear bumper cover another time when I was turning around at night, my rear view camera has failed again and I backed into a big rock that I didn't see. The trailer hitch is frame mounted so it hit the rock but didn't damage the body. Another time I got stuck in mud and AAA yanked it out easily by hooking onto the trailer hitch. 639067

Burly, solid and confidence-inspiring product. Installation was exactly as described. Which is to say it was hard to do by myself, but at least I knew exactly what I was doing. I was able to get it in place by using the cardboard box from the bike rack I bought for use with this hitch. That held it in place for me while I cranked on the bolts. 638679

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Comparing Trailer Hitches for 2017 Toyota Prius v
  • The difference between the two hitches you were asking about for your 2017 Toyota Prius v are that the Draw-Tite # 24847 has a visible crosstube while the Draw-Tite # 24967 does not, as you can see in the accompanying photos. As for the distance from the end of the receiver to the edge of the bumper that can vary slightly though as you can see from the photos the difference between the two hitches will be minimal.

  • Comparing Trailer Hitches that Fit a 2017 Toyota Prius v
  • We currently carry four trailer hitch receivers that fit your 2017 Toyota Prius v and the best one for you depends on what you're using it for. For example, the EcoHitch, part # 306-X7192, is the best option if you're going to be using the hitch to carry a cargo carrier or bike rack because the hitch pin hole sits closer to the rear bumper so whatever is in the hitch has a higher chance of clearing the bumper. It's also the only one that's a 2 inch receiver and there are more hitch accessories...

  • Which Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver Fits a 2015 Toyota Prius
  • The Draw-Tite # 24847 is a fit for your 2015 Toyota Prius. The # 24808 is actually for older models of the Prius from 2004 to 2009. Another hitch that fits is part # 24967. The insallation is more detailed and time consuming but in the end I prefer this style. It's a much cleaner look because the cross tube is hidden behind the Toyota's bumper and all you see is the receiver tube underneath. Look at the darker colored Prius in the pictures, as opposed to the blue Prius where you can...

  • Draw-Tite # 24847 vs Curt # C11276 for Carrying Bike Rack with 2014 Toyota Prius
