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.

2014 Chevrolet Cruze

Hitch went on extremely easily. Took about an hour start to finish for my Chevy Cruze. The hitch itself is well built too and looks great. The only reason for four stars, the hitch arrived with several major scratches and paint chips with bare metal showing through. It doesn't affect the hitch integrity at all, but slightly disappointing to install a brand new hitch I expect will start rusting very quickly.


As other reviewers said, this hitch attaches with no difficulty. Perfect fit and was mounted in short time (maybe 15 minutes after I cleaned some road dirt out of the frame attachment bolt locations). As you might expect for a car that rides this low, the hitch receiver ends up pretty close to the ground, about 9 inches, (see photo). That makes my utility trailer ride a little low in the front, but quite usable. I tried not to use more hitch offset than was recommended.

2021 Toyota RAV4

Shipped ASAP on Sunday (impressive), came in 2-3 days, EASY INSTALL, I am not that handy but I was able to do this in ~15 minutes, no issues what so ever and will 100% recommend to friends and family

2013 Buick Verano

This is my 4th trailer hitch I’ve bought from etrailer and as always I am completely satisfied. Whether it’s been for a sedan, suv or truck the fit has always been perfect and the instructions exact and clear. And if you need more they have a lot of resources on the website. The only place to buy a hitch.

2014 Chevrolet Cruze

Really impressed with the entire purchase process; from the easy-to-use and informative website, to the quick delivery, and the simple install. Everything was a great experience.

2013 Chevrolet Cruze

I just installed my hitch after some months it was resting at home (I was abroad working),it was not more than 30min, did by myself only and I love the fit in my Cruze 2013, I installed on it a Kuat bike rack and love the way it looks and thanks it help avoid loading the bike dirty inside my car. Great support from etrailer and great products in the website, seeing to buy some extras soon, many thanks.


Well built, Very good business. Thx+++


This hitch was super easy to install and has worked great. I used it to tow my trailer behind my Cruze from Alaska to Arizona then Florida before ending in Ohio. It was around 8000 miles and worked flawlessly.

Chevrolet Cruze

trailer hitch arrived in good shape. install went well. used it with a cargo carrier on a camping trip. going to have to get a 1 1/4" to 2" adapter with a 2 or 3 inch lift as carrier scraped a couple of times when backing up and the driveway had an incline. stands to reason as a chev cruze is a small car.

2014 Chevrolet Cruze

Ordered the hitch to fit my exact car . Hitch came in a few days as stated . Was as easy as the video demonstrated to install . Will definitely order from etrailer again.

It’s perfect !! It has worked exactly as it was intended. Great purchase.

2011 Chevy Cruze

Installed the Draw Tite 24882 on a 2011 Chevy Cruz Eco in about 30 minutes. I have had a Thule 2 bike carrier for 10 years. It fits into a small reciever hitch.This is the third car it's been on. Took the bike to the trails already. No problems. I would note that the Cruz Eco sits low. The front end will bottom out on steep ramps or inclines. I have to cross them slow and sometimes at a 45% angle. This hitch doesn't seem like it would bottom out but the bike carrier might since it sticks out a bit. I haven't had that problem but I may throw the carrier in the trunk if I need to go up or down a steep ramp or driveway.

One year later I am still satisfied with this hitch. I have managed to hit the bottom of the bike rake on the ground when driving down a steep ramp onto a level road. If I make the transition at an angle there is no problem. Without the bike carrier it never bottoms out.

2011 Chevrolet Cruze

Although I have not attached the bike rack yet, the hitch itself was very simply to install; I did it myself in the parking lot of my apartment complex. The videos on etrailer are extremely helpful with the installation process; without them I wouldn't have attempted to install it on my own. The printed directions that came with the hitch were, in my opinion, written for the Buick Verano because I did not have to lower my exhaust or cut the heat shield on my Chevy Cruze, which obviously made installing the hitch much easier and quicker. I would definitely recommend this hitch as well as a review of the installation videos available on etrailer.

If I had known then what I know now, I still would have bought the same hitch. Im very happy with it.Thanks!
Lisa - 04/21/2016


Great, very good quality, as easy to install as possibly can be. Only 1 thing I see that would be an improvement would be, manufacturing needs to move safety chain loops or draw pin on the receiver 1- 2 inches forward/ back as it's difficult to hook the safety chains because the draw pin is directly above the safety chain loops.


Hitch hangs low to the ground line of the car. Depending on grade and what you install, it may rub on the ground. with a 4 bike kuat bike rack, the rack will touch of on the ground.

Rob,Thank you for your review. We normally do not recommend a 4 bike rack on a class 1 hitch. This hitch can handle up to 200 lb of tongue weight and the force of 4 bikes plus the weight of the rack may exceed that. We do recommend to carry only 2 bikes on the class 1 hitch. The 2 bikes should be closest to the vehicle. This may help with the bike rack rubbing the ground.
-- Etrailer Expert Heather A - 12/06/2017


Exactly as expected, would recommend!

2014 Chevrolet Cruze

Great product, tucks in well under bumper, you can barely see it, easy installation on my 2014 chevrolet cruze RS and the product looks well made. Thanks Etrailer!


hitch arrived on schedule but had broken through the cardboard box. The unit was loose inside the box with no padding or anything else preventing it from sliding around in there. As a consequence quite a bit of paint was chipped off down to bare metal and I had to prime and paint those areas prior to mounting. Installation went exactly according to the instructions and took about 40 minutes, not counting the repainting.


Solid quality trailer hitch kit that was easy to install, even with just one person


Looks good the machan's that work on my car will do the install, everything looks like it is there the only thing that I am a little upset about is the electric wiring for wiring the car came out of its container and was all over the inter box, if I had to pack it I would but tape on the wiring container so it would not open and fall out all over, but thank you for everything and all your help.


Easy to install took about 15 minutes

2014 Chevrolet Cruze

Repeat customer. Super fast shipping. Quality product, easy to install. Product will be used by my daughter to carry her bike to college.


Great product. Easy to install.

2013 Chevrolet Cruze

very nice product well made

2012 Chevrolet Cruze

The hitch was just what I needed for my 2012 Chevy Cruze. It fit perfectly and was easy to install, even though I was a novice. It helped to have a second person to help with the install. The hitch had some scratches on it which I would have preferred to not have been there. However, as a whole I'm happy with the purchase as I can use it for a hitch bike rack.

2014 Chevrolet Cruze

Only complaint is, hitch not in stock,had to wait a month. Etrailer kept me informed. Hitch took less than half a hour to install.

  • Will the Draw-Tite Sportframe Hitch 24882 Fit a 2015 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ
    Yes, the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24882 is a fit for your 2015 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ. It is also a custom fit which means there is no drilling required for installation. This then means it is super easy to install, around 30 minutes or so which you can see in the attached review video. I have attached a photo of what the hitch will look like once installed on a similar Chevrolet Cruze LTZ that we used for said video.

  • Trailer Hitch that Fits 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel
    For smaller vehicles like your 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel the only hitches available are 1-1/4 inch hitches like the Draw Tite part # 24882. The larger 2 inch hitch size is only used on larger vehicles with higher capacities like trucks and SUVs. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

  • Draw-Tite Sportframe Hitch on a 2015 Chevrolet Cruze LT
    I'm happy to inform you that the Draw-Tite Sportframe, part # 24882, will fit on the 2015 Chevrolet Cruze LT. The differences between the LT and LTZ do not affect the mounting places for hitches, so the installation will be the same. You can use the video of the LTZ, which I've linked to, to aid you in your installation on the LT.

    According to the folks at Hidden Hitch, when installed on a 2013 Buick Verano, the crossbar of the # 24882 will be almost totally concealed behind the bumper fascia. You can see how the hitch sits in relation to the bumper by taking a look at the cross-section drawing from the installation instructions. The instructions state that the heat shield needs to be lowered or a small hole (approximately 1 inch in diameter) cut into it to allow access to the access hole in the frame member. The...

  • Can Curt Cargo Carrier # C18110 be Carried on 2013 Chevy Cruze
    If you had a 1-1/4 inch hitch installed on your 2013 Chevy Cruze like the Draw Tite part # 24882 the Curt Cargo carrier part # C18110 would fit and work well. I'd recommend this hitch over the Curt as it does not require the stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a cargo carrier.

    When we installed the Curt # C11282 and the Draw-Tite # 24882 Class I hitches on a 2013 Chevy Cruze, we found that the Curt hitch had a 6-1/4 inch measurement from the hitch pin hole to the furthest rearward point of the back bumper. The Draw-Tite was recessed so that the dimension was 3-3/4 inches.

    According to Curt Manufacturing, the # C11282 is compatible with all models of the Chevy Cruze, including those equipped with the RS package. If you will be using the hitch for a bike rack or a cargo carrier, keep in mind that the warranty requirements of the hitch require that a stabilizing strap like part # 18050 is required. The Draw-Tite hitch, part # 24882 has no such requirement, which is why I would recommend it over the Curt model. I have linked you to installation instructions...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Chevy Cruze that Provides Smallest Distance from Hitch To Bumper
    For a hitch that would have the hitch opening as far back towards the rear of your 2014 Chevy Cruze as possible you would want the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24882 as it is confirmed to fit your vehicle and only had a distance of 3-3/4 inches from the hitch pin hole to the rear of the bumper. See install video that I attached. The most popular bike rack we offer that we had a chance to demo on a Cruze just like yours is the Swagman XTC-2 Bike rack part # S64670. See attached video.

If you need a hitch the # 24882 would be a great option that has been confirmed as a fit. It would also have enough clearance to fold up when not in use.

I do recommend going with the Draw-Tite Sport Frame # 24882 though (the "Sport" is just part of the name of the hitch) because the Curt warranty requires that a Support...

  • Curt or Draw Tite Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2013 Buick Verano
    Function wise the Draw Tite part # 24882 is the winner for your 2013 Buick Verano. The reason I say that is that the Curt you mentioned requires the use of a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack and the Draw Tite does not. So it is the winner in my opinion.

In fact, we have a customer review that was sent in where they installed the Draw-Tite hitch on their ECO model and it took them about 30 minutes!
