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.


etrailer.com Technical Support

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.

Rock solid and pretty easy install with the right tools. Had to modify muffler shield a little bit on the 2014 prius V because the hitch was not going to seat up flush against the frame of the car. Nothing a nice pair of sheers couldnt handle. Delivery was super fast. Also the contact from customer service and response to a question I had was impressive. Zero issues with the entire process and I am impressed with the hitch.

2015 Toyota Prius

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.

2012 Toyota Prius

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.

2012 Toyota Prius

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.

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.

2012 Toyota Prius

I bought this for my 2012 Prius V based on other user's reviews. I was able to install it by myself without a lift or jacking up the car. I had most of the tools I needed, but I did pickup a longer extension for my socket set. Watch the install video and you will see why that's needed. I used two jack stands to support the receiver while I installed it. The only issue I had was with the new bolts. The existing bolts have rounded ends and are each to get started in the frame. The replacement bolts have a squared off end and are difficult to start without feeling like you are cross threading the bolt. I finally installed the receiver using the existing bolts, then replaced them one at a time with the new bolts. That helped. I was able to get the bolts started without trying to hold the receiver in place. Fiddling around with the bolts added at least 20 minutes to the install time. Now that it's on I'm happy with it. I'm using it with a Swagman XTC2 bike rack. I've been on the interstate several times and the combo is very stable. Delivery from etrailer was fast. The product was packed well for shipping. I'm a first-time customer and would come back to etrailer again.

2013 Toyota Prius

I installed this on a 2012 Prius following the video for the 2013 model. They are identical in regards of the hitch installation. Over all it took me almost two hours to get it all in place and torqued down. Mainly because getting those bolts started is really a game of patience and I don't have much of that. I followed the recommendations in previous reviews (use soap or soapy water on the rubber dampener and use a 19mm crow's foot for the bolt blocked by the muffler). I did not completely remove the rubber dampener as you can turn it out of the way once one side is loose. Working on your back with the hitch right in your face (or on your chest) makes anything pretty difficult. I think that if you had a racing jack to lift the back of the car by a few inches could have made a huge difference. Oh, I also followed the advise of a previous review to use the original bolts to help hold the hitch in place while you try to start the bolts that came with the hitch. The end product if the work is great though and makes you forget the struggle to install it. It's a really nicely designed piece of hardware and though as nails.

2013 Toyota Prius

My order for the Draw-Tite Receiver Hitch (for 2013 Toyota Prius) was delivered in good condition, and in just a few days. Installation was relatively easy following the enclosed instructions, e-trailer's video, and a number of reviews. The two best tips I gleaned from other reviews about installation were: 1.) Don't bother to remove the muffler from the hanger, rather just "tweak" it over to R & R the bolts. (I jammed a block of wood between the undercarriage and the muffler to keep it "tweaked" out of the way.) 2.) Re-install the factory bolts to temporarily mount the hitch. Because the factory bolts are tapered, it greatly eases alignment (don't snug any of them up, just run them in far enough to ensure support of the hitch.) Replace them one at a time with the (19 mm head) bolts provided with the hitch. The purpose for getting a receiver hitch was to get a proper bike rack to haul our two bicycles, so I ordered the Swagman XTC-2 2-Bike Platform Rack. It, too, arrived in good condition and in only a few days. One of the drop arm holes does not align as it should, but I am not of a mind to return it and wait for a replacement because of this minor defect (who knows what defect(s) the next one might have.) I just drove the pin home with a rubber mallet. In time, and some lube, I suspect I will be able to install the pin by hand. I test drove the car with the bikes on the rack for only a few miles (bags were still on the bike racks, as you can see from the photo,) but am pleased with the set-up so far. I anticipate enjoying this arrangement much more than our old "strap-on" bike rack.

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.

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.

Exactly what we needed to attach a two bicycle rack and bicycles. We took them on an 800 mile road trip - on a 2012 Prius. This equipment is top quality and comes with install instructions. Be aware you will need a special tool to ensure the correct amount of pressure is applied when bolting this down to your vehicle chassis. I will buy again for my next vehicle.

2012 Toyota Prius v

Fit like a glove and was fairly easy for a 1-man job. Only had to slip off the back muffler rubber mount to gain access to the muffler hanging plate bolt heads as the front one didn't want to come off. Make sure you use a Torque Wrench to tighten the bolts as 65 ft./pounds was a lot tighter than I thought it would be.

Product is great. Fits perfect. Difficulty removing the muffler's rubber vibration absorber from its bracket (soapy water did not seem to help), otherwise installation was not hard. Loading up the bikes next and heading North!

I installed this on my 2012 Prius V model 3. Very easy install with a couple of notes. Car was too low for my jack stands so I had to Macgyver a jig (upside down metal bucket and a brick) to hold up the hitch while I maneuvered the muffler end of the hitch. I also found it useful to use a basin wrench to tighten the new bolts to the hitch/muffler mount. This is the only part of the job that took a few extra minutes. I also bought the adapter to use with a 2" receiver and that fit perfectly. Everything was of nice craftsmanship and all holes aligned perfectly. The only bad experience I had was that the hitch was packaged poorly and arrived with a ripped box, no safety packing, and a hitch hanging out, scraped because of the shipping. On the Prius V I didn't encounter the "cowl" that was mentioned in the video (where they warn you to be careful not to lose the bolt there when initially taking things apart) so if you're installing on a V it is super easy!

The hitch is an excellent fit and the quality of the is outstanding. I did the installation myself in the driveway. Since the Prius is low to the ground it would be easier if the vehicle is raised, but it is not necessary. I tried using 1/2" drive sockets but they don't fit the tight driver side bolts, so I used 3/8" drive set. I had a little problem with the passenger side as you will see in the photo. The heat shield for the muffler was causing me to not seat the hitch properly. Once I realized this and bent the shield out of the way a little everything when together easily. When I need a hitch for my truck I will use e-trailer again. Your instructions don't mention reinstalling the tow point so I didn't. Is this not possible?

That is correct, the tie-down hook cannot be reinstalled. Check Step 1 again in the instructions.

2012 Toyota Prius

After reading reviews of different trailer hitches to put on my Toyota Prius to haul my bike rack, I decided on the Draw Tite from etrailer. Their price was the best and there was a promotional reduction that was in effect, making it even more attractive. I placed the order, and 2 days later it is standing in front of my door. Fast Shipping!Can't beat any of that for great customer service and satisfaction. I then installed it on my car, it taking me a little longer than the online how-to video I watched, but it was done in 45 minutes with nothing that wasn't solved by a few choice curse words at the proper time. All in all, easy-peasy, as my Grand nephew says. This whole experience with etrailer has been positive from the word GO, and I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation. They are a quality outfit.

With a year having passed underneath my Draw Tite, it is still as good as I initially anticipated, doing all that I have asked of it without murmur. I do like a quiet trailer hitch. Great product, great company!

Seems well-made, works as expected. Had to have it installed by my local car guy since I don't have a lift or the proper tools. Fairly inconspicuous. Bought it to carry a bike rack, but have only used it twice. Could wish it came with a plug to close the open end when the rack's not installed.

You will need - 18mm, 6 point ratchet for removal and a 19mm, 6 point for install, a can of blaster PB breaks loose, 1 jack stand to hold the trailer hitch up if you dont have a xtra pair of hands. This can be done with the car on the ground and will take 1/2-3 hrs depending on your skill level. Doing this myself saved me $240... $127 if you include: the 155pc craftsmen ratchet set i bought with drive attatchments and 2 jack stands.. High Five not bad at all guys

    In order to use the Yakima RidgeBack, # Y02457, on your 2010 Toyota Prius you need to use Curt hitch # C11276. It will not work with other Class I trailer hitches. But, for the Curt hitch, when using the hitch for a bike rack or cargo carrier you must use stabilization strap # 18050 per the Curt warranty requirements. The other option is to use the Draw-Tite hitch # 24847 with a different bike rack, such as the Thule Camber, # TH9058, and not have to worry about the rack fitting the...

    Class I trailer hitch receivers like # 24847 have a distance of about 1-5/8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the welded stop in the back of the hitch receiver tube. Class I ball mounts like # 3594 normally are about 1-9/16 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back to allow fit.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2015 Toyota Prius
    The best way to carry a bike with a vehicle is a hitch mounted bike rack. They don't contact the painted surface of the vehicle like trunk racks do and they provide a more secure attachment point. Roof rack options aren't ideal since they require a different rack for each bike, roof racks can be expensive, they require lifting the bikes to the top of the vehicle, they can cause height interference and affect gas mileage. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed...

  • Recommended Hitch for 2012 Toyota Prius V
    The best hitch for you will depend on what you were wanting to use it for.

The Curt hitch, # C11276 would also be a fine choice, albeit a bit more expensive. The hitch warranty stipulates that a stabilizing strap...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2012 Toyota Prius
    Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24847 has a square cross tube and a little bit different design than Curt hitch # C11276 which has a round cross tube. Both bike rack and hitch manufacturers agree that on a Class I trailer hitch the maximum capacity is 2 bikes. The issue is not how much weight would be on the hitch it is where that weight is placed relative the the hitch receiver. The further the weight is away from the receiver the more stress and torque is put on it like using a cheater...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2014 Toyota Prius V that Allows Hatch Clearance
    With trunk mounted bike racks you cannot open the rear hatch with the rack installed loaded with a bike or unloaded. The extra weight would make the hatch want to slam down. I've actually witnessed a buddy of mine attempt to do this after I told him not to and it the hatch came down very hard. If hatch access is what you need then a hitch mounted option would be the best solution. You'd have to have a hitch like the Draw Tite part # 24847 installed then you could use a tilting bike rack...
