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. Technical Support

At 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. The one-on-one, personal service you'll receive comes straight from an expert in the towing and automotive field. We've installed it, we've wired it and we've towed with it, so whatever your question, we can answer it.

Trailer work as advertised the hitch. Anyway, the wiring harness was straightforward and does require some common sense when taking your car apart.

2013 Mazda Miata

The installation instructions are excellent and the quality of the product made everything fit together perfectly.

The only difference on my 2013 Mazda 5 was that there is no heat shield to push out of the way and reinstall...see attached photos.

No problems...the hitch works fine.


Great hitch, straight forward install and quick shipping.... Definitely purchasing from etrailer again....

Hitch works great and definitely has been put to use

2012 Mazda 5

This is my 2nd hitch receiver purchase from eTrailer. First one was for my 2007 Honda Odyssey; a HiddenHitch brand. I was debating whether to go with HiddenHitch or the Draw-Tite. But what sold me on the Draw-Tite was that it was rated "tough" -- I'm pretty sure that it is because when I received it, I noticed how well it was built. Either brand would require the factory frame holes to be enlarged somewhat on the 2012 Mazda5.

Dremmel came in handy once again with metal grinder. I drilled a hole next to the factory one and started to shave the metal off. Then I sprayed it with a primer as a rust inhibitor. It actually took longer than 40min-1hour. But that's because I had taken my time as I wanted to install it correctly.

Only thing that I would have improved with the Draw-Tite hitch receiver is the opening for the receiver could have been tapered instead if being straight cut.

Instruction was pretty straightforward and the metal spring/string which was provided came in handy. Along with the hitch receiver, I also purchased the flat cargo carrier for the upcoming trip. Overall, I am very happy with the purchase. eTrailer once again, made what could have been a chore install a breeze.

2012 Mazda 5

This hitch carrier works great thought I was not expecting to mount a roof box on it. It's the perfect platform for a Thule Sidekick. We now have locked and dry storage for winter use. This is in addition to our roof box.

Mazda 5

The hitch fit exactly as stated.
video was a great help.
The customer service representative was excellent in assisting me to modify my order later in the day.
I will always check etrailer first when searching for trailering and bike rack products.


The hitch was shipped fast and is built to last. The instructions were easy to follow and all parts were included.

The only reason I am giving this a 4 is because I feel the term "No drilling required" is disingenuous. The access hole that needed to be expanded was only about 1/4". That hole needs to be widened to about 1 1/4" to allow the bolts and spacer through. I didn't have a bit that large, and expanding that hole was the bane of the install. It added about an hour to the otherwise simple install. I would recommend that the proper size drill bit be included or recommended for purchase at checkout.

2012 Mazda 5

Easy install looks well built

2010 Honda Odyssey

Fairly easy install on a Mazda 5... I use a bastard file to enlarge the existing frame holes for the passenger side bolts. This was my fourth Draw-Tite hitch from etrailer to install - previous installs include 2004 Honda Odyssey, 2007 Honda Fit, and 2010 Honda Fit.

2017 Mazda 5

Excellent., Perfect fit on my mazda 5 2017 cant wait to install the bike rack i bought

2015 Mazda 5

Absolutely great experience putting it on my 2015 Mazda5! It arrived promptly and completely, and it took me about an hour to put it on. I drove the passenger's side up on the curb to give myself more room to install, and switched the car around to install the driver's side bolt. I used a 1 1/8 inch hole saw bit from Home Depot ~$14 for the hole. I'm no mechanic, and almost didn't realize that one needs to completely separate each of the two plastic rivets into two parts before reinstalling the bumper guard ("fascia back"). Other than that, the video instructions were perfect. This is definitely a DYI project that anyone can do. I picked etrailer because of my same great experience putting a different Draw-Tite hitch on my Mazda 5 >10 years ago.



The trailer nitch is still great after a year. More importantly, its sister hitch is still pulling after 11 years.

2012 Mazda 5

The product seems to be good quality. The installation is a little tricky, though. The instructions aren't hard to read, but make sure and look at ALL the figures and read through it all twice.

I've done a lot of car work (replaced suspension, even swapped an engine). Yet this still took me a little over 2 hours. You'll need a 1" drill bit or a good dremel to enlarge 2 holes. Preferably a die grinder if you don't have the drill bit. Remember the eye protection! And ideally you should paint the exposed metal after drilling.

You also have to bend a heat shield (near the muffler) out of the way to get a bolt in place, and it is still tricky. After everything is tight you can bend the heat shield back but it doesn't go exactly to the original position. It should be fine, though.

Last note: I have a curt tongue (from my previous hitch install) and it is short enough and the receiver recessed enough that you can install it in the "upward" (recommended) position. However, I do like how discreet this receiver will be when not in use.

So, it seems like it is quality made, but I think the estimate for instillation is too low. So, 4 out of 5.

Mark P.


Ive had the product for a year now and everything is still working as it should. No issues.

2014 Mazda 5

I installed this hitch in less then an hour without a single problem. There are several youtube videos posted by people who have installed this hitch and they are well worth watching. This was extremely easy to install, to order, was in stock, shipped quickly and I received it in just a few days. I would highly recommend etrailer and this hitch to anyone in need of a hitch. Mine was ordered for a 2014 Mazda 5, but I'm confident that etrailer's service and hitches will exceed anyone expectations.

Mark P.


It has always worked great. I have a home in Dayton Beach and one at Lake Wedowee Alabama. I make quite a few trips back and fourth and I always take a large trailer full of tools and furniture and Ive never had a problem.


Very impressed with quality of the product, it was easy to install and is holding up great after a year of use.


This was a moderately difficult to install for someone that occasionally works on their own car. I have a workbench and tools and a healthy sense of what is outside of my abilities. This wasn't too bad. The videos were very helpful guiding me through it. Once the hitch was in place it is very secure. It makes the rear end a little low so you have to watch out for steep driveways.


Fit perfectly in my 2014 Mazda5. Nice look from behind. I use this for my bike rack.
For installation. It’s not bad but you should have an extra hand to help


Hitch cam with clear instructions for easy install in about an hour. The hitch has no problem carrying a loaded bike rack, witch is all we need it for.



Still working well. No signs of rust after one year.

2012 Mazda 5

Came quickly, with good tools to install it. My mechanic was really pleased with it, and said it was easy to put in.

2012 Mazda 5

This hitch has worked perfectly on our 2012 Mazda 5. We're very pleased with it. Very sturdy. etrailer also recommended a rack that is compatible with it (Thule Roadway 2 part # TH912XTR) which has also worked perfectly.

The only notable difficulty I had with this hitch was with the installation While the instructions and video are straightforward, it was actually a BEAR to drill out the hole for the carriage bolt to fit through.

But I only own a 3/8 inch drill, which is not large enough to accommodate the right size hole saw. Trying to widen it with a smaller hole saw was impossibly time and muscle consuming, at least for me, lying under the car in my garage. Ultimately I had to call a friend who owned a larger drill, and he came and drilled it out for me. But it was certainly not the 45 minute project I hoped it would be.

If you own a drill that is large enough to work with an inch and a quarter hole saw, and have enough physical space to put muscle behind it to drill into it, it'd probably be easy peasy.


Purchased a trailer hitch for a 2014 Mazda5. Arrived quickly, so I installed it that weekend. It came with all the hardware and special cable to fish the hardware through the frame channels. Everything was well thought out and dud not take long. I saved a lot of money for a custom product. I also bought a wiring harness that was also incredibly easy to install with no splicing, all custom oem connectors. Thank you

2012 Mazda 5

Easy install, didn't even have to lift the car. The hardest part was making the access hole, I didn't have a stepped drill bit so I just used a Dremel with a reenforced cutting disc and cut out a 1" square. Easy peasy lemon breezy.



Its been fully loaded on multiple road trips and is still solid.


I purchased a trailer hitch on line and received a call from Anna in Customer Service telling me that the hitch I ordered was not in stock and had a long lead time. Normally, this would be okay but this was to be a birthday present for my wife, so, Anna helped me select a comparable hitch that was in stock. After I received the hitch Anna contacted me again to ensure I was happy with my purchase. Not only was I happy but my wife is ecstatic. The bonus was they have better pricing for the same hitch than their competitors. Great customer care, great pricing, great hitches - what's not to like? I highly recommend


Installed on my Mazda 5. Installation was straightforward (but you are going to need to drill a hole and installation is much easier with 2 people than with one). Has been rock-solid since installation. Primarily use it with a hitch bike rack.

2012 Mazda 5

Although I have not even opened the box yet, I can say that shipping was quick. The box looks great and was on time.



Hitch has been preforming well. Great Product

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2012 Mazda 5 and Class I Trailer Hitch
    The Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24874 is a Class I trailer hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver. Because it is a Class I hitch, you are limited to certain bike racks and a maximum of 2 bikes because a Class I trailer hitch cannot support the added stress of additional bikes. With that said there are still a number of bike rack options that are compatible. I have included a link to all of the Class I compatible bike racks for you to view.

  • Recommended Hitch for a 2014 Mazda 5
    I wish I had more options for you but I checked with our vendors and the only hitches that were made for the 2014 Mazda 5 are class I hitches with a 1-1/4" receiver. I checked with Mazda and it looks like your van has a 2,000 lbs towing capacity and a 200 lbs maximum tongue weight. With this in mind, I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch item # 24874. This hitch is custom fit and bolts to your Mazda with included hardware. The Draw-Tite item # 24874 is a class I hitch with a 1-1/4"...

    We do have some great hitch-mounted bike racks that will work well on your 2012 Mazda 5, however based on my research the Inno Vertical Hang 4 Bike Rack # INH540 that you referenced will not be compatible.

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2012 Mazda 5
    All of the bike racks available for your 2012 Mazda 5 are Class I hitches which means they would be limited to only carrying 2 bikes. The best recommendation I could give you would be to get the Hidden Hitch part # 60291 (no longer available) and then use the Swagman Semi 2.0 Bike Rack part # S64686 as it will tilt away to give you the best rear cargo access with bikes loaded we can offer.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2012 Mazda 5
    Curt and Draw Tite are two different companies we carry that make hitches for vehicles like your 2012 Mazda 5. The better solution is the Draw Tite part # 24874 because it installs a bit easier and because unlike the Curt it does not require the use of a stabilizer strap when carrying a bike rack like the Swagman Chinook # S64683.

  • Tilting Bike Rack Recommendation for a 1-1/4 inch Hitch for Rear Cargo Access
    What you might be interested in is a bike rack that can tilt back from the rear of the vehicle with bikes loaded like the Swagman Semi 2.0 2-Bike Rack # S64686. This may not allow you to completely open your rear hatch, but with it tilted back you would at least be able to open it slightly. The 1-1/4 inch hitch bike racks do not have the ability to swing out and away from the rear of the vehicle. Only the bike racks designed to fit the higher capacity 2 inch hitches will have the option.

    All of the hitches we offer for the 2013 Mazda 5 are Class I hitches that have a 200 lb tongue weight rating. You would want the Draw Tite part # 24874 as it does not require the use of a stabilizer strap with a carrier like the Curt does, and doesn't come with a ball mount that you wouldn't need. If the carrier you are interested in weighs less than 40 lbs and is Class I compatible then this hitch would work well for you. If not, then you would have to look into a small trailer option.
