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. The technicians at etrailer perform hitch installations on a daily basis, making them a valuable resource for do-it-yourselfers.

This hitch fit my car as expected and was pretty easy to install. I have a Kuat Transfer bike rack mounted on the hitch and it is working well. I rate 4/5 because the paint needed touch-up in several places due to scratches. Would definitely order again. 549802

I installed 2 of these years ago. I was a lot younger 88 now. I did do the wiring harness not so much weight there. I decided to let someone else do the hitch for me. The instructions & videos are great ! There is my oil change man, I'll ask him. I owe him, he rotated my tires for free. You fellows keep doing the excellent work you are doing now, wish I could say more. I would recommend you & your product to everyone. 389310

Needed a hitch strictly for a bike rack on my wife's MkZ. Oh yeah... I had a tight time limit to get it and install it or have it installed if I was not able to. Thanks to help of a great etrailer customer service lady Molly S, I got an email with update info saying the hitch was shipped (very quickly I may add). This took a lot of pressure off me. It arrived when promised and the installation was easier than I was prepared for. I had the job done in a short time. The hitch works perfectly for our needs. I would recommend etrailer without hesitation. 505144

Went in just like video showed. My son and I had it in place in less than an hour. The hardest part was running the hot wire from the battery back to the trunk for the light kit. Fortunately, grandson was around and he's wired up a bunch of amplifiers and knew exactly how to run the hot wire back to the trunk. Took another 45 minutes because he was careful and didn't want to break the trim around the doors bottom framework. Very pleased and recommend!!!! 588176

Great install, about an 1 hour or so the hitch catches on the rear bumper slide back after bolted up. Lube the muffler grommets with wd 40 and pry off with screw driver all is not to bad. called around and install with hitch was about $ 300 dollars or so all done. You will need some help. 666885

Great for my bike rack. Installed on my Ford Fusion Hybrid in less than 30 mins. Crawling under the car a supporting the exhaust and the hitch with a bunch of blocks of wood wasn't easy, neither was torquing the bolts to 50lb, but I was extremely happy with the final install in just 30 mins. The pull wires are a great invention. 186710

All I can say is wow. The trailer hitch went in without a "hitch". I could have done it myself but I had someone hold up the other end for a few minutes while I secured the other side. I'm sure I could have rigged a way to hold up the other end by myself but who would get me a beer when I was empty. When I first picked up the hitch from the shipping company (super fast shipping btw) I noticed how stout and heavy this hitch was. I was pleasantly surprised! Everything was packed awesome even though the box could have been a bit smaller. I have a review for the wiring kit that is recommended for my Ford Fusion and this review parallels that where the direction and the awesome online video tutorial guided me into installation. Even though everything was pretty straight forward. Cuddo's to etrailer for providing awesome guidance and support for the products they sell and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others! 73473

The products are great. No complaints what so ever. I figured it was best to get 200 dollars worth of towing equipment for my quad and trailer than to spend 45k for a brand new truck!Thanks for the follow up.

I've had this receiver for a year and pull a light 4x8 utility trailer and attach a bike rack to it. it's awesome. Fairly easy to install and still looks good after a year. No peeling paint and no rust. I have an adapter to bring it up to 2" (because all my hitches, etc were 2" from another vehicle), so it does make it stick out a little far, but if it didn't have that, it would be pretty well-hidden. 912675

I am not a mechanical genius but I have good tools and lots of experience with do it yourself projects. The hitch arrived when they said it would in perfect condition. After reading the instructions I was skeptical about how easy this was supposed to be. As I installed the hitch I was amazed at how everything worked as the instructions said it would. Great service, great product and perfect fit. I ordered the Hollywood bike rack that goes good with this hitch at the same time. Very happy with it also. I have done business with E Trailer on several previous occasions with the same excellent results. 909383

Solid hitch for bike rack. Install was exactly as shown in video. It took me a little over an hour to install by myself without a lift. Kind of heavy to hold up by yourself - I propped it up in the middle to get the nuts on and made it go pretty smoothly. Great product and price. Installed on 2012 Ford Fusion 818652

I needed to be able to pull a lightweight trailer behind my Lincoln MKZ and etrailer had the exact one. It is a quality piece of equipment, heavy duty and fit perfectly on my car. I received the trailer mount early and in great condition. The video instructions on the web site were excellent and walked me through exactly how to install it. The trailer mount came with everything I needed to mount it and worked just like the video said. Etrailer will get my business the next time I need something they sell. 809992

This item came exactly as described, and was quite simple to install. I asked my mechanic brother to help me, it was pretty straightforward.

Install went well. took more time to jack and block up back of car than it did to install, Hitch functions well. would suggest installers use torque wrench per spec's. because when you are compressing the washers and several layers of sheet metal you will want to stop applying torque as it feels 'mushy" when you start to tighten joint, (for fear of stripping the threads) but in fact you need to keep going and crush all these metals flat before final torque is achieved. 647756

I am very happy with the trailer hitch I bought for my 2012 Lincoln MKZ. It came in just as advertised and was easy to install although I had my mechanic do it because it's much easier to do on a lift. The videos on Etrailer are also very helpful for a DIY guy like myself. I was able to install the wiring harness myself and again the video of the installation for my specific vehicle was very clear. I highly recommend these people. 590729

Everything arrived quickly and in good order. Hitch fit perfectly and installation instructions were very clear. Installation was fairly easy. Wiring fit well also but, the instructions for running the wire under the car could have been more helpful. When I need a hitch and/or wiring for another vehicle I will definitely come back. I would refer etrailer.com to a friend. 579380

  • Parts Needed to Tow a Trailer with the 2011 Ford Fusion
    You can pull a trailer with any class of trailer hitch, you just need to be under the weight capacity of either the hitch or vehicle, whichever is lower. Therefore, for your 2011 Ford Fusion I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24865 which has a 200 lb tongue weight and 2,000 lb gross trailer weight rating. Please keep in mind that the owner's manual does not recommend towing a trailer with the vehicle so they do not list any towing capacity. In addition...

This means that you could carry up to 200 lbs of weight from a wheel chair carrier and wheel chair.

    You can only use Class I compatible bike racks with a Class I trailer hitch like # 24865. There is nothing wrong with the hitch or the bike rack in case you were worried about that. The tab in the receiver is a safety precaution so users will not put in Class II accessories that could potentially overload the hitch and damage the vehicle.
