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.

Great hitch very well made, fit my Toyota Avalon exact. Very easy to install, instructions were very detailed and clear. Would certainly not have reservations about buying another of your products.

The hitch was more solidly built than the way it appeared in the illustration on line and that was a plus. The finish was excellent and we experienced no problem attaching it to the car, fit was perfect. One more thing had no missing hardware and installation instructions were clearly written and easy to follow.

Installation stretched my limits, but we will blame that on the car and on my narrow limits. It is a tight and clean install. Has worked flawlessly this past year. I used it just yesterday to haul junk and brush about 100 miles for disposal. I would definitely buy this hitch again.

Hi, in his day and age when quality control usually takes a back seat, I must say " excellent job " on the trailer hitch. It fix like a glove. Did the install in my garage, with no help from any kind of a lift !! Job was completed in about 1.5 hrs, only due to working off the floor. We will be using the hitch for a bike carrier while traveling across the US on our retirement trips.


Comments
How is the trailer hitch installed on the 2008 Toyota Avalon. Do the mufflers have to be moved.
-- comment by: Frank - 07/24/2014

The instructions (linked above on the right hand side of the page) indicate that the mufflers do need to be lowered but removing the rubber idolaters on each side. The mufflers do not have to be completely removed, just temporarily lowered. Then the isolators will re-installed on the hitch.

I bought the Draw-Tite trailer hitch after talking to a co-worker who just got one for his car and put it on himself. I went to eTrailer.com and located the hitch for my Avalon. What sold me was the detailed video- the instructions were very clear. I felt confident I could install it myself, even though it required removing both mufflers. It took me a bit longer than the video, but I expected that. Sam G. did a great job going through the purchasing process.

Product is fine, but it came without mounting brackets. Eventually one set of mounting brackets arrived and I installed it. A month or more later a second set of mounting brackets arrived. So the product is fine except for the snafu's involved in getting all the parts.


Comments
As I think I said back then, the first shipment came without important mounting hardware. Eventually that came and I installed the hitch which has been as good as anyone might expect from a trailer hitch. Several months later a second package of the missing hardware arrived- I have that in my garage if anyone is interested. It did not speak well for the shippers whoever was entrusted with packaging the product. It was more time consuming than it should have been.

The hitch showed up 2 days faster than etrailers said it would be here! That is always a win for etrailers! The hitch is very well made and good quality. The online video describes the steps in detail and anyone with decent mechanical skills will be able to complete the installation quickly. I did not have any issues at all with the install on a 2012 Avalon. Total install was well under 1 hour, so a simple process. Maybe 45-50 minutes.

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

  • Does the Draw-Tite Hitch 24870 Work with th 1up Quick Rack
    The Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24870 is a 1 1/4" receiver tube opening if your 1up has the same shank size it will work out perfectly. The hitch is a Class 1 so it is limited to transporting up to two bikes at a time. I've linked a video for you to check out of the installation process.

  • Using 2 Inch Accessories in a Class I Trailer Hitch on a 2008 Toyota Avalon
    The available trailer hitches for the 2008 Toyota Avalon are all Class I hitches with 1-1/4 inch receivers: # 24870 or # C11427. Since there are no Class III, 2 inch hitch options available you would need an adapter, # HTAD, to be able to use a 2 inch accessory. However, the use of an adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. Both hitches mentioned above have a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds. When using the adapter it will be reduced...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2007 Toyota Avalon
    For your 2007 Toyota Avalon, the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24870 is a great choice. When used with ball mount # 3593 and hitch ball # 19258 the Uhaul trailer will work. For your wiring, I recommend the Upgraded Circuit Protected Tail Light Converter Hardwire Kit with 4-Pole Connector (Includes Tester) # 119178KIT. I've attached a video to assist. This combination will allow you to haul a trailer up to 2,000 lbs max when fully loaded.

  • Is There Fascia Trimming Required to Install the Draw-Tite Hitch # 24870 on a 2011 Toyota Avalon
    To install the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 24870 that you referenced you will not need to trim the fascia around the exhaust or anywhere for that matter. This install does not require any drilling and only requires temporary lowering of the exhaust. Check out the installation instructions I attached also.

  • Trailer Hitch Availability for a 2011 Toyota Avalon
    The hitch manufacturers we carry will produce hitches for vehicles if there is enough demand for them. It is then the responsibility of the customer to use the hitch in a way that would not void the vehicle warranty. For your 2011 Toyota Avalon the Draw Tite hitch part # 24870 has been confirmed as a fit. You could use it for carrying a bike rack or cargo carrier. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well. You will end up having around 11 inches from...

  • Availability of Class II Hitch for 2007 Toyota Avalon
    The 2007 Avalon is rated only for a light-duty Class I hitch, so there is no Class II hitch available. Light duty Class I hitches have specific weight limitations; for example a hitch-mount bike rack for a Class I hitch can carry only 2 bikes maximum, regardless of the capacity of the bike rack itself. I have linked an article on hitch classes that will explain in detail. Draw-Tite Class I hitch # 24870 is the most popular unit for your vehicle and the one I would recommend going...

    The Toyota RAV4 can be equipped with either a 1-1/4-inch Class II or 2-inch Class III hitch, while your 2006 Avalon is suitable only for a light-duty Class I hitch such as those one of those shown on the link provided. Unfortunately your friend's hitch is not suitable for use on your vehicle.

  • How to Transport 400 LB Wheelchair with 2011 Toyota Avalon
    The hitch receivers for the 2011 Toyota Avalon are all Class I, like the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24870, which have a tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs. Carrying a 400 lb wheelchair would far exceed this capacity and there is an extremely good chance that it would damage the hitch as well as the points on the frame where the hitch connects. The best option I can make for you would be to install a Class I hitch and a small trailer like # K2MMT5X7 and make it work...

  • Will the Kuat Beta Bike Rack be Compatible with the Draw-Tite Receiver 24870 on a 2011 Toyota Avalon
    The measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole of your Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24870 to the outermost edge of the rear bumper on your 2011 Toyota Avalon is right at about 4-1/2 inches (see attached video). Since the Kuat Beta # B202-114 that you referenced measures 7-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright bar there will be more than enough room for this bike rack to fit on your Avalon. Since the Beta has anti-sway cradles...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2006 Toyota Avalon
    There are some great options for trailer hitches for your 2006 Toyota Avalon. I recommend the Draw-Tite # 24870 over the Curt # C11427 as it has an easier install. To install the Curt hitch, the fascia clips will be need to be temporarily removed. This is not required to install the Draw-Tite hitch. Otherwise, they are both Class I hitches with 1-1/4" receivers, and have 2,000 lb gross trailer weight and 200 lb tongue weight capacity. If you are looking to use your hitch to install a...

  • Will CURT Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch # 11427 Be Visible on a 2011 Toyota Avalon
    On the CURT Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 11427, for the 2011 Toyota Avalon, the crossbar is under the bumper but underneath the car. The receiver portion is the most visible part of the hitch you will see. I do not have a picture of the CURT hitch on a 2011 Toyota Avalon, but I am including a link to the instructions on the Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 24870.

I have included a link to a video showing how the hitch installs.

    Unfortunately, we do not have any roof rack options for your 2006 Toyota Avalon which includes the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack part # 298-SX6000B. The Monkey Bars cannot be attached to the sunroof as the weight capacity would be drastically limited. If you can tell me what you are needing a roof rack for I would be happy to inform you of your other options if available.

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier For 2011 Toyota Avalon
    The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 24870 is confirmed to be a fit for your Avalon. This is a Class l hitch and it has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. The tongue weight capacity is 200 lbs. The cargo carrier, part # 6502 is designed to work with a 2 inch receiver. Since using any adapters like part # HTAD in a trailer hitch will reduce the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent, this means the hitch tongue weight capacity would be 100 lbs.

    If you are installing a hitch, like the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24870, then all you need to do is measure the clearance of your bumper to make sure it will fit. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the cargo carrier is 11-1/8 inches. Once you have the hitch installed all you have to do is double check to make sure this will clear your bumper.
