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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Kia Soul - Draw-Tite

Today on 2017 Kia Soul we're going to be taking a look at and also showing you how to install the Draw-Tite Sportsframe Custom Fit Class I trailer hitch receiver, offering the 1-1/4" by 1-1/4" receiver tube opening. It's part number is 24915. Now this is what our hitch is going to look like installed. As you can see it's going to be pretty hidden as it comes across the rear of the vehicle. We've got our receiver tube opening that we'll be able to see here of course and our safety chain connection points. This is a Class I hitch, so this is going to give us the 1-1/4" by 1-1/4" receiver tube opening. It's going to make it a very good hitch for your smaller two bike racks, small cargo carriers, or very light duty towing.

The hitch itself is going to give us a 200 pound tongue weight rating. So that's the maximum downward force we can put here at our receiver tube opening. It gives us a 2,000 pound gross trailer weight rating. That'd be the total weight of our trailer and then anything that we we're to load up on it. Of course you do want to check the owner's manual on your Soul, you want to see what its tow ratings are and go off of whichever of those numbers are the lowest. When it comes time to secure your items you've got a 1/2" diameter pinhole here on the side, that you just want to be sure to use a Class I rated accessory, but it looks like there's plenty of room here in this area whether it's an anti-rattle bolt, locking hitch pin, or anti-rattle device.

You'll see here around the bottom safety chain connection points again, rounded steel stock, there's plenty of room there to get whatever style of chain you might want to get connected connected. Now a few measurements that are going to be helpful in selecting your bike rack or cargo carrier will be from the ground to the inside top edge of the receiver tube opening, we're going to have about 11-3/4". Then from the center of our hitch pinhole to the outer most edge of our bumper it's about 4-1/4". We do recommend the use of bike racks or cargo carriers that would offer a raised shank just to help promote better ground clearance. Now to being the installation of our hitch we're going to need to lower down the tailpipe here. It's going to be an exhaust hanger right up here to the side. What we'll do is spray down the metal portion of that with a little bit of spray lubricant, then we can use a large screwdriver or a pry-bar.

Once that pops off you just kind of let the exhaust rest down just like that. It's going to give us some room to get in there and work. Now on each side we're going to have two hole locations that we're going to use. They both have weld nuts in them which is going to make it nice, a little bit easier to get our bolts started. But we've got one right here on the outside of the frame rail. Right here.

You can see this weld nut location at the bottom indicates to us about where that's at if we go right up on the side. Then if we come a little bit closer to the rear of the vehicle we're going to have one here. To make it easier to get to those we've got a pushpin fastener here at the bottom we're going to remove and then also three screws in the wheel well that we'll remove, but we can start with this one. For that really just a flat blade screwdriver will be fine, or a 90 degree pick can work. You can get in there and just kind of . We're going to pull the center portion out. One that's out the outside will come. Now if we'll come up from where we just removed that fastener here on the rear of the vehicle, we'll see where there painted portion meets the non-painted portion or where are two lines come together. Just below that we've got a Phillips screw. Then we'll follow that up, we'll have a second one right here. Then a third one right here. We're going to remove all three of those and we're going to do it on both sides. Now if we'll pull forward on that inner-fender liner you'll see it's going to give us the access. Just going to tilt it up and out of the way there. That'll allow us to see in here at our frame rail. Now it's a good idea to clean that out with a little bit of solvent, also a nylon tooth brush, you can use part number 814092 here. Just get those threads cleaned off properly. Now with the help of an extra set of hands we're going to be able to get our hitch lifted up into position. This is going to sit of course on the outside of our frame rail there, so we'll just get our holes lined up and we'll place on our hardware. This is going to be the provided bolt with the conical tooth washer. The teeth of that washer need to be facing in toward our hitch. Then we'll thread those in. Should go in fairly easy, especially since we cleaned out the thread holes. Now we'll just pull back on our hitch to make sure we've got it as far back in the vehicle as we can, and we'll use a 17 millimeter socket to get in there and tighten down that bolt. Then we'll be torquing that down to the specifications which will be listed in our instructions. Now we're ready to get our exhaust put back up into position. We'll also be putting our fender liners back in place. We'll just reuse all the hardware we took out before and we'll have our hitch installation wrapped up. With everything re-secured that's going to completely our installation of the Draw-Tite Sportsframe Custom Fit Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 24915 on our 2017 Kia Soul.

2014 Kia Soul


This was my first hitch install. I've put this off for 2 years and wish I had more confidence back then but a move and finances made me take the plunge to put this one myself. I consider myself handy & did it all by my wittle self, didn't have anything to raise the 2014 kia soul+ 2.0 liter, but from all the videos, forums and comments I read, it was fine to do flat on the ground. One main note - I DID NOT have to remove all the screws by the tire panels. For one, I couldn't get the ratchet screwdriver I bought specific for this task to loosen the screws. I only took off the bottom screws on both sides, holding the panel in, then flipped the panels back to expose the 2 holes to screw in the hitch. I was concerned the hitch would be too heavy for me to do alone, but when it arrived I knew I could do it myself and use a box or something to hold up one side of the hitch while screwing in the other side, if needed. I have issues with my wrists and joints so to say I could install this myself is a big deal for me. The only tool I needed to buy was a torque wrench and got that for a great deal at a local hardware store for $20. I forgot to time myself, but it probably took me longer to try to figure out the dumb screws on the tire panel then the actual install - that probably took about a half hour. I'll be putting my bike rack on "empty" and drive around to see how that works - will install a gopro-like camera and have rear cam to see how the hitch behaves. I put off getting the light kit, which according to the video instructions look easier for me to install than the hitch - love etrailer's instructional videos, which are specific to my year/model car, you guys rock! If I find that I will be pulling a small trailer, I'll come back and purchase the light kit that installs to the rear lights, not the battery as that looks easiests. Great communications with etrailers and quick delivery. Thanks! 385943

Ordered this receiver hitch, paid for 2nd day shipping, and had it THE NEXT DAY! This Brilliant service from etrailer - excellent followup on shipping and feedback from George J, and the user reviews and commentary answered all of my questions in advance before I purchased. The installation videos were a big help as well. It was really nice to buy something online and feel confident your selections would actually fit the car you bought them fore. Bonus icing on the cake: It all really fit and works well! All told it took me about 2 hours to get all of my tools together, watch the videos, take parts of the car apart and then complete the install and button everything back up. I installed this on a 2017 Kia Soul Plus with optional mudflaps (designer package). Basically needed to remove one additional fastener on each mudflap to get the fenderwells loosened. Also one minor thing the video didn't mention - and it may be the option package on my car, but there are 2 additional fasteners in each wheel well that need to be popped out to loosen the fenderwells. An excellent purchase that was put to work hauling our bikes today. So far, all is good and I love it! 419860

I placed the order on 4/04/2018 and received it on 4.09/2018, in three business days. I did not pay extra for shipping, it was included in the price. Pleasantly surprising fast shipping time using UPS. It was a few days before I had a chance to try to install it. I determined by looking underneath the car that I would not have to lower the exhaust or remove the hanger to install it as stated in the instructions. I also did not have to remove the inner wheel well, it was flexible enough that I could work around it. I do not currently have splash guards. Also do not have a tow hook. I did not raise the vehicle although it might have been a bit easier if I had. I easily worked the hitch into position and supported it with a floor jack in the middle. It was a little difficult to get the bolts started, but once all four were threaded into the mounting holes, it was not too hard to use a rachet and a torque wrench to tighten them. About 35 minutes from start to finish not counting gathering and putting away the tools I used. Just a 17mm socket, a rachet, and a torque wrench.:) Price was $30 less than the nearest competitor, so good prices. Fast shipping, good fit, and easy installation ever for an old man over 60. (But I have been a mechanic with all my own tools for over 40 years). Anyone that can use a ratchet could mount this hitch.:) 496130

I have a small utility trailer that I use for many projects around the house and lost my pick up (with hitch) when my grandson turned 16 (birthday present). I have been looking for a new trailer hitch for my Kia Soul for several weeks. I could not find the correct hitch in stock any where in town. Finally I went to etrailer.com found the correct hitch. It was ordered and received really fast. I am sure impressed with the service of etrailer.com. I was thoroughly kept informed of the status of my order and even checked to make sure it was delivered when stated. The instructions said it would take about 50 minutes for installation and it actually took about 30. Thanks etrailer for your fast, friendly and helpful service. 167483

Does this hitch fit close up to the underside? Im looking for something that will fit close to maximize ground clearance.

I installed this hitch onto a 2018 Soul ! (Exclaim). This will be used for hitch style bike rack. The hitch arrived quick. Boxed very secure. Very simple to install. It fit perfectly, and was very easy to fit up to the vehicle frame. Four bolts hold the hitch to the car using existing threaded holes in the vehicle frame. I did not follow the installation directions to the T. I did not have to totally remove the plastic inner wheel wells. I removed the bottom clip and the two screws and was able to push the plastic liner out of the way enough to screw in the hitch bolts and torque using my torque wrench. Also my car did not have any tow hook to be removed, as was noted in the installation instructions. It took me maybe 45 minutes to complete the installation and I was able to do the install laying on the garage floor. The Exclaim has 19" wheels, so maybe higher ground clearance than a standard Soul. I always use anti-seize on bolts and would recommend that you apply some anti-seize to the hitch mounting bolts before screwing them into the frame. The bolts may never get removed, but someone will thank you if they ever do need to remove them. 486586

A well made, solid and sturdy hitch. Packed carefully so it arrived without any scuffs. Welds are works of art, finish is smooth and shiny. This should work well pulling my light-duty utility trailer. The hamsters are excited to be put to work!! 194015


Comments

So glad I got the hitch and the plugplay wiring assembly. Made it MUCH easier. The hitch fit perfectly and the wiring was a snap...except I think I mentioned that the leads on the harness going to the car could have been longer, had to splice extra wire in and mount to a different area. But, after many miles of towing, all seems well. Thanks for the follow-up!

I cannot say enough about etrailer.com. My son was driving from Chicago to Las Vegas for his summer internship and in order to take his mountain bike he needed a rack to carry it. We already had a rack but needed a hitch for our new 2016 Kia Soul. I went online and found etrailer.com and selected our hitch. We only had a few days before he left so I selected the 2 day shipping method. I placed my order and hoped it would arrive in time. A few hours later I get an email stating the hitch I need is not in stock and they are looking at other locations. A few more hours go by and I receive a phone call about our situation. The very friendly CS rep states they have a slightly different one in stock from the same manufacturer and will still fit our vehicle. I said that would be fine and accepted the change. Two hours later it had shipped and the next day it arrived! It took my son an entire 15 minutes to install! he has since driven 1800 miles to Las Vegas with no issues at all. My hats off to etrailer.com and the wonderful customer service they provided for us! 256693

Works beautifully for my utility trailer, zero problems, have helped 3 sets of friends move, done two seasons of firewood, plus a variety of small projects, hitch assembly holds up great zero complaints. Installation & Assembly This is the second one of these I've bought and installed. Really simple and easy to install, product doesn't include tools or much in directions. Honestly on the directions front, not a big deal, since bolts directly to the rear frame mounts and mentions needing to drop the exhaust which is only thing that could potentially be damaged. Tools you really need in addition to either an impact/ lug wrench, two jacks since not this companies fault but the 17 soul, has dimunitive hard points so getting a jack stand in without frame damage is almost impossible. A small flat head screw driver, Phillips head, and a 21mm and 17mm socket plus air ratchet or socket wrench. Only thing on actual installation that I can say is having a second set of hands to hold one side makes a tremendous difference in ease off installation. 523307

The installation was a piece of cake. Removed the muffler from the rear rubber mount. Removed 3 screws on each side from the fender wells. Installed the hitch with the 4 mounting bolts that screwed into the pre-existing threaded holes in the rear frame and torqued them to 42 ft. lbs. Slipped the muffler back onto the rubber mount and reinstalled the 6 screws and wa-la I had a trailer hitch for my wife's 2015 KIA Soul. The whole installation took 35 minutes. Now when we travel we place our luggage and cooler in the cargo bin that we purchased from etrailer and have plenty of room for additional passengers. 172613

Thanks for helpful installation info, Gary. Quick question: Did you lower the canister to reach the mounting holes? If not, was it difficult to reach those holes with the canister in place? Thanks again for your help.

RickI left he canister in place. There was no need to move it. The pre threaded holes are readily accessible. Jacking up the rear of the car and hanging the suspension helped.

Great product. Well known name, price was less than anywhere else I looked, shipping was awesome. Took 20 minutes to install. On the Soul if you choose not to remove the emissions box on the drivers side, you just hook that side up first and then its easy. The instructional video provided by ETrailer was amazing. Helped me understand what I was getting into. No drilling, all hardware was included, its a perfect addition to the Soul. 243000

I am very satisfied with my purchase. The website was easy to navigate and etrailer provides detailed instructions for installation. I will definitely be using etrailer again in the future. When deciding which shipping option to use, be aware that the delivery time (mine was 3 days) does not start until they have shipped the product from their warehouse. It was not shipped until 48 business hours after I placed my order, so the 3 days was actually 7 days. Knowing this now will better prepare me for my next purchase with etrailer because I will definitely be going back. Customer service is beyond what most companies give and I recommend the company (and this product) for all of your trailering needs. 501684

Installed easily in 20 minutes. Instructions were spot on. The reason why I am not offering 5 stars is because the slotted bolt holes in the hitch are 1/8" wider than the bolt going in. I had the materials to make steel sleeve spacers to fill that slop gap up and still allow for proper bolt torque. Removing that bolt to slot gap will ensure hitch doesn't move up and down, no chance of wiggling loose. I prefer this hitch design over the more expensive model for two reasons: 1) simple design without the goofy welds and bends, and 2) if the capacity is the same as the more expensive model why struggle with the impossible to reach 2 extra bolts you can't torque anyway. 491159

I bought a hitch for my 2016 Kia Soul from eTrailer. It took approximately 45 minutes to install it. The time including getting all my tools out and putting all my tools back up. It would not have taken as long if I had had the opportunity to put car up on Jacks but I did it flat on the floor. I thought I did extremely well. Considering I had a knee replacement a year-and-a-half ago and I'm recovering from a severe heart attack 2 weeks ago and I'm 71 years old. 434445

This hitch was easy to install but the wiring was not. I found the wire harness to be very difficult to snake from the lights down to the hitch crossbar. I had to cut the wires & solder them back together. I used shrink tube over the bare wire. This made it easy to snake the wire without difficulty. If you place the module where indicated the tail light cannot be refitted. I had to place it on the vertical surface. I believe the the sheet metal on my 2014 Soul has changed enough to make this necessary. I am a retired auto shop teacher & this is not my first hitch installation. The product is excellent & and I am very satisfied with quality. 141856

I had someone else install- just didn't want to deal with it. but they did it in about 2 hours for all the wiring harness and installing this hitch. (They were a professional though).. regardless the video is pretty thorough and doesn't seem like it would have been that hard to install myself. Bought my first trailer today, and I'm pulling it around with ease thanks to etrailer! PS their customer services is great, I had ordered a ball that wouldn't fit my hitch, they called me about 10 min after I purchased to tell me that it was wrong, but they were happy to fix it, and write off the small money difference. Really good folks. 505437

This is my second trailer hitch and wiring assembly purchase from e-trailer and this experience equaled my first. The hitch matched perfectly to the factory mounting points and the instructions from e-trailer provided for a nearly effortless installation. The wiring harness was a bit more difficult to install, however that was due to my minimal skills and the auto's design, not that of the harness itself. Again, the e-trailer documentation was a great assist in completing the job. The build quality of the hitch and harness were excellent and I would highly recommend e-trailer for your trailer towing accessory needs. 326799

I recently purchased a draw tite hitch and a curt wiring harness ..I watched several videos about installing them ,,but found if you put the driver side up and then the passenger side ,,you do not need to drop the exhaust or the evaporater box.. to install the hitch took about 10 minutes..the wiring harness on the draw tite you need extra parts but on the curt it comes with everything .,,dropped both taillights and the weather stripping under the back hatch to run the wiring to the right tail light.took about 15 minutes ,, so within a half hour I was ready to go fishing with my 2015 Kia Soul 477953

I had avoided aftermarket add-ons like this but as I only needed a light duty hitch I decided it would be worth a chance and I was happy with my choice. The product arrived in a timely fashion. Installation instructions were generally perfect. Details of moving the mud flaps were a bit different but nothing serious. The product lined up perfectly with the frame where it really mattered and while I barked a knuckle or two in the process it was not because of the installation notes, just the amount of access on the frame. Since then the product has performed well. 399228

Well I got my hitch faster then I thought it would,fast shipping.I am a 61 year old man in bad health and I had the hitch installed in an hour and a half,thats including getting my ramps and tools out installing it and putting everything away after completed.Needless to say the how to video that I watched before purchasing was very helpful for the installation,and that is doing all this on the ground.The job was so easy I wish I would have purchased the trailer wiring package at the same time,but I thought it would be difficult for me doing the job,Many thanks for the great product. 343297

I am pleased to say I received my hitch in 4 days! I watched the instructional video a couple of times to ensure no problems. I went on a Kia Soul forum to find out where to place my jack to lift my car. I'm the time of do it yourselfer not to take anything off if I don't have to. I found I didn't have to jack it up nor remove anything. The hitch fit perfect and it only took me about 30 minutes. That's probably giving 5 or 10. I plan to build a cargo rack to haul a cooler and or a beach cart. Not really wanting to pull anything. I am very pleased with my hitch. John T. 342676

We had a little mishap with this delivery but as soon as I contacted Michelle S she rectified everything in a very quick and professional manner. Unfortunately I could not install this myself it was too difficult for me to get underneath my car so I had my local mechanic do it. He said it was easy to install and it fit well without any additional drilling. Now I have to purchase another anti wobble pin for my bike rack so I can attach it to the hitch. In the meantime I place the hitch cap over the hole and it looks very good. Thank you etrailer for all your support! 402618

Ordered a Draw-Tite class one hitch for my 2016 Kia Soul. It was delivered in one day, talk about quick. I installed the hitch by myself with the help of a floor jack. I watched the video etrailer made on the installation on the Kia Soul, this covered everything I needed to know so there were no problems. The job took less than an hour, two people would have been better but the floor jack made it easy. The delivery time, the quality of the hitch, and the instruction video all were first class. 280828

I ordered this and received it quickly. I will be using it to pull my new Sylvan Sport Go Trailer full time. This is exactly what I needed and for a good price. My sister's fiance assembled the hitch and wiring on my 2015 Kia Soul in 2.5 hours. He utilized the videos on this site as well as another on Youtube and did it with little issue. He said he found it easier to remove the back tires versus undoing the exhaust pipe and such. If I need anything else I would definitely buy from this site again. 362463

No problems installing the Draw-Tite trailer hitch on my 2014 Kia Soul. It took me about 2 hours to do so, but that was at a slow pace. Might have been faster to take off the rear wheels, and not have to fight with the inner wheel and splash guards. A tip, make sure the rails are clean from any caulking material, since the hitch mounting plates come close to some welds on another part of the rail. Anyway, everything looks good and I hope to make use out of the hitch with a bicycle carrier. 187005

2016 Kia Soul


Will use this basically for a cargo carrier. Need it when traveling with more than 2 people and cannot lay rear seats down to accommodate a wheelchair for my wife. With this we can travel with 4 occupants and still have some room inside for groceries Installation is pretty straight forward and hitch looks good and hardly noticeable on the vehicle. My order was handled professionally by sales person (Amanda) and delivery was on time. etrailer is the place for your trailer needs. 530032

Bought this and a Swagman bike rack for my 2016 Kia Soul and both work great! Install was super easy, as another reviewer said the removal of the black box on the driver side was not necessary in my install. Took me and a friend about 30 minutes to install. 257400

The hitch came in 2 days earlier than expected. etrailer packaged the hitch very well and included all of the parts needed for installation. The installation was very easy and took no time at all. I think it took more time for me to round up the tools:) The hitch is positioned under car enough that you don't hardly know it is there. We are going to use the hitch to tote 2 bicycles on our KIA soul. The KIA pushes our 39' Class 'A' diesel RV:) 463105

I CAN NOT BELIEVE HOW EASY THE INSTALL WAS! IT TOOK LONGER TO GET THE FEW TOOLS I NEEDED TOGETHER. THE VIDEO IS GREAT AND MADE ME MUCH MORE CONFIDENT BEING ABLE TO SEE WHAT WAS NEEDED TO DO. I AM GOING TO USE THIS TO PULL A SMALL TRAILER FOR FIREWOOD. 378946

the hitch was spot on as to the hole placement went but the brackets were about a quarter of an inch wider than the frame rails of the car . this meant that the bolts had to draw these parts together on installation deforming the parts being connected together . otherwise it went on well and works well , i am very satisfied with the hitch . i wish it had a 2" receiver so a wheelchair carrier could be installed. 376396

Received hitch in good condition and before the expected delivery date, I didn't install it right away due to medical problems. However when I was able to install it there wasn't any problems, the directions were very clear and to the point, it took all of 50 minutes to install. The hitch is very sturdy and fit perfectly. I couldn't ask for better service or a better product. I will do business with etrailer again 308710

Great hitch. Etrailer came through, as always. Great products. Great price. Quick delivery. Installation took longer than expected. Not because of the hitch or instructions. I have a Kia Soul with the 18” wheels. There is almost no room to work on the hitch, with that configuration. Even with the wheel well liners pulled away, not enough room for arms to fit in. Other than that, easy install. Thank you. 520004

I use my hitch primarily for a bike rack. I have a 2015 Kia Soul which I had customized with vinyl wrap and special wheels. I was worried that the hitch would look bulky. But it isn't very noticeable at all. And I appreciate the convenience of just plugging in a bike rack. It takes a minute or two to install or remove the rack. I'm in my 60's and I love my Kia hitch. Wish I had done this before. 260113

Installed very easy on the 2014 Kia Soul with two people. We did use wheel ramps on the rear of the car to gain some clearance. On a previous installation we didn't have the ramps and it still went ok. Folding the wheel well flaps out of the way is only a little confusing. Pull towards the rear of the car on the hitch before you torque it down to seat it properly. Works great! 217130

I purchased the DrawTite Hitch Receiver (24915) and installed it in 20 minutes with the help of my brother (helped hold the left side in place while I bolted the right side etc). Could not have been easier to install. I've had it on for a year now and have had no problems with it (or the light kit I purchased at the same time). Excellent service and products! Great experience! 538708

The hitch installed without a "hitch" (ha ha...I'm so funny). I would like to give one tip...to those of you who don't have an assistant to help you lift the hitch into place, I used a hydraulic floor jack, and secured the hitch to the jack with a strap...lifted it into place and it worked great. Minimal effort required. Watch the video...it will make your job a lot easier. 429316

This is our 2md Kia soul and out 2nd hitch we bought. The first one we bought back in 2012 was a different brand and was impossible to put on. We needed up having to take it to a shop and have them do it. Fast forward to our 2nd soul and hitch and this one fit great and was easy to install. Together with my husband it took us maybe a half hour to install. Great product! 520896

I love this hitch purchased it for my 2015 KIA Soul. My boyfriend and I put in on together. The instructions were point on and its a great fit. The product was shipped and packaged great. I can't wait to mount up our bicycles and take them on the trails. If I need anything else that etrailer has to offer I will not hesitate to purchase from this company again. 491055

I was able to install this hitch on my own, although another set of hands would have made it a lot easier. I am not mechanical and do not work on my car usually, so it did take me longer than 50 minutes. The hitch appears rock solid and the shipping was fast. I'm only using it to support a bike carrier, so I didn't install any wiring. 145106

Correct product shipped, and shipped fast... One problem... Manufacturer only packed 3 bolts instead of 4. Contacted George at etrailer, let him know the problem, he found the bolt and washer I needed and promptly shipped them... Next time I need something in the arena of products, you can bet I'll be ordering from etrailer.com. Thanks 238948

Fit was perfect on 2014 Kia Soul. Directions very clear and accurate. Altho' I did not have to take down the exhaust, to install. 2014 Soul muffler assy. will "flex down" 1" on its rubber-mount allowing ye to install hitch at 45 degrees on that side first! It just takes a bit more muscle, or a second person to help. 142740

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch
Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • The Best Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2016 Kia Soul
  • We do have a trailer hitch that will fit your 2015 Kia Soul. You can use Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24915. Then you have to make sure the accessory is rated for use with a Class I trailer hitch. Also, with a bike rack, you are limited to 2 bikes maximum on a Class I hitch. I have linked compatible bike carriers as well.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for Carrying Mobility Scooter on 2015 Kia Soul
  • There aren't any Class III hitches available for the 2015 Kia Soul, only Class I hitches with a limited 200 lb tongue weight capacity. The tongue weight capacity indicates the maximum amount of weight that can be suspended from the hitch. If you were to use the Draw-Tite Class I Hitch, part # 24915, the weight of the scooter and the carrier could not exceed the 200 lb tongue weight capacity of the hitch. If your carrier and scooter can come in under that weight, everything will work fine....

  • Why Won't My 1-1/4 inch Ball Mount Slide Into a Class I Hitch
  • It sounds like you have a Class I hitch and are trying to use a Class II drawbar with it. Class I hitches are designed to do exactly what you are trying to do, prevent the use of a Class II accessory by not letting the holes line up. This is to prevent overloading the hitch. I attached an FAQ on hitch classifications for you to check out also. The correct ball mount to use with your Draw Tite Hitch part # 24915 would be the Sportframe Draw Bar part # 3593.

  • Visibility of Trailer Hitch Installed on 2014 Kia Soul
  • We do indeed have a photo provided from Curt showing their # C11419 installed on a second-generation Kia Soul. As you can see, the only portion of the hitch that's visible from eye level at the rear of the vehicle is the receiver opening, almost all of the crossbar is concealed by the bumper. Draw-Tite has # 24915 which would also be largely concealed behind the bumper. Both hitches have the same weight rating, and would install in the same manner. I'd recommend the Draw-Tite.

  • Class I Trailer Hitch Fit for 2016 Kia Soul EV Electric Vehicle
  • Sometimes all-electric vehicles like your 2016 Kia Soul EV do not share hitch fits with the standard gas engine versions. Often this has to do with limited clearance at the back of the vehicle due to the car's sizeable battery bank. We offer two Class I hitches for your 2016 Soul, both shown on the linked page. I contacted both manufacturers to check on the fit of their hitches on your car. The Draw-Tite # 24915 will not fit the EV according to my contact there, but my Curt representative...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2015 Kia Soul to Tow Small RV
  • We do offer a few different hitch receivers for your 2015 Kia Soul. I have included a link to these for you. I recommend going with the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver, # 24915. This hitch installs with no drilling or welding required and offers a 200 lb tongue weight and 2000 lb towing capacity. As for the size of RV/trailer that you will be able to pull, due to the fact that Kia does not recommend using this vehicle for trailer towing, they do not provide a towing or tongue...

  • Can the 2014 Kia Soul + Tow a 1,200 Pound Trailer
  • I checked the vehicle owner's manual and all it says is that it is not recommended to tow a trailer with the 2014 Kia Soul (any model). But it also does not say you can't and there are numerous references to towing throughout the manual. So my interpretation is that you could tow a trailer but how heavy is unclear. I would say that at 1,200 pounds that is probably the max you would want to tow. Also, at 75 pounds that tongue weight is too light and that will make the trailer susceptible...

  • Comparing Swagman G10 and Chinook Bike Racks for 2016 Kia Soul
  • The main difference between the Swagman G10 # S64682 and the Chinook # S64683 bike racks are the design of the crossbars that the wheel cradles are attached to at the base of the bike rack. The Swagman G10 uses two crossbars in which the wheel cradles are attached directly on top of the bars.The Chinook model use one crossbar that the wheel cradles attach to and sit off the side of the bar. The only difference between the two racks, other than the design, is the Chinook rack will...

  • Parts Needed to Tow Smaller Trailer with 2016 Kia Soul
  • We do have all of the components you'd need to tow a small trailer with your 2016 Kia Soul. For a hitch you'd need to start with the part # 24915 which is a confirmed fit, for a ball mount part # 3593, 2 inch ball # 19258, and finally trailer wiring part # 118637. This hitch would have no problem with a small trailer and small ATV, but you really need to check your Soul's owners manual to determine what the manufacturer recommends as a towing capacity.

  • Can Rollator Walkers be Carried on a Trunk Mount Bike Rack on a 2014 Kia Soul
  • If your Rollators can fold up relatively flat then they could be placed on a trunk mount bike rack on your 2014 Kia Soul. I recommend going with a model that is designed to carry up to 3 bikes because there will be more space. I recommend the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top rack # HRF2-3 because it will work with or without that little spoiler piece at the top of the hatch on the Kia Soul. Keep in mind that trunk mount racks are not tested for use with Rollators. The other option is to...

  • Best Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Kia Soul

If you plan on doing any towing you will also need wiring, # C56220. For a ball mount you can use # C45521, pin and clip # PC2, and a properly sized ball. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # A-80 and for a 2 inch ball use # A-82. If you plan on using the hitch for a bike rack or cargo carrier you will need to use stabilization strap #...

  • Carrying a Kayak with a 2016 Kia Soul that Has a Panoramic Sunroof
  • I may have a solution for you, however we do not offer a roof rack for your 2016 Kia Soul that will fit with the panoramic sunroof. Another option is to add a trailer hitch receiver, like the Draw-Tite Class I Sport Frame # 24915, a ball mount # 3593, and hitch ball # 63845. You may need a ball mount with a larger rise than that so I've linked our most popular fits for your Soul. This will give you ability to tow a trailer like the Yakima Rack and Roll # Y08106.
