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.

Fortunate enough to have access to a lift, so the job took under an hour. However this is totally doable on the ground. Still should take about an hour with the right tools. Absolutely minimal bumper modification which is why i chose this hitch and it has a clean hidden look when all done. PERFECT! 648055

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2019 Volkswagen Jetta
    The available 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch options for your 2019 Jetta include the Curt round tube hitch # C11540 and the Draw-Tite model # 24978. The Curt offers easier installation but its cross tube will be visible under the bumper cover. The Draw-Tite hitch installation requires removal of the entire bumper fascia and the bumper itself but gives you a much more discrete appearance once installed. The linked photo shows the Draw-Tite hitch. Both hitches include all of the required mounting...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2019 Volkswagen Jetta that is Mostly Hidden
    I have a really great hitch option for your 2019 Volkswagen Jetta that is more hidden than other options with the Draw Tite part # 24978. Unlike other options this hitch only has the hitch opening visible below the rear bumper which allows it to be more concealed than other options and also helps with ground clearance. I attached a couple pictures of this hitch installed to show you how well it is concealed.

  • Does Draw Tite Hitch # 24978 Fit 2019 VW Jetta GLI 35th Anniversary

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2019 Volkswagen Jetta GTI Autobahn for Carrying Kuat Sherpa 2.0
    For your 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn the Draw Tite hitch # 24978 is a confirmed fit and would be the hitch I recommend for carrying a bike rack since it does not require a stabilizer strap like the Curt for your vehicle does. This will also work great with the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 part # SH12G.

  • Best Trailer Hitch and Easiest to Install Trailer Wiring for 2019 Volkswagen Jetta
    The best hitch for your 2019 Volkswagen Jetta is the Draw Tite part # 24978. The reason I recommend this over the Curt that fits your vehicle is because this only has the hitch opening hang below the rear bumper which means it will be mostly hidden from view. For trailer wiring the best and easiest to install is the Tekonsha kit part # 118791 because it installs simply by plugging inline with your vehicle taillights and does not require any hardwiring or splicing like the universal kits...

  • Least Visible Trailer Hitch Receiver on A 2019 VW Jetta
    The least visible hitch receiver available for the 2019 VW Jetta is the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24978 which is concealed cross tube design so the only part of the hitch that is visible once installed is the 1-1/4" receiver. I have attached a photo for your reference.

  • Correct Trailer Hitch For A 2019 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
    My recommendation is the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24978 which has a lower profile design, hiding the receiver tube. An additional consideration is difficulty of installation which is noticeably more here but is also part of how the hitch has a slimmer look. The Curt # C11540 while easier to install, will show the receiver tube as you can see from the installation instructions sample image provided. Both options are solidly made with quality materials that can...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2019 VW Jetta TDI
    We actually have two trailer hitches available that are confirmed to fit your 2019 VW Jetta TDI, but I specifically recommend the Draw-Tite Class I Sport Frame # 24978 because of its hidden crosstube design. This allows the crosstube to be tucked behind the rear bumper so that only the 1-1/4" receiver is actually visible, maintaining a clean, OEM-like appearance on the Jetta. I have attached a customer-submitted image of the hitch mounted so you can see exactly what I mean. The Class...

  • Trailer Hitch Fit For 2019 Volkswagen Jetta
    While we don't have any EcoHitch fits for your 2019 Volkswagen Jetta we do have great fits like the Draw Tite part # 24978 that I recommend highly. Hitch will only have the hitch opening hanging below the rear bumper so you get a mostly hidden hitch that has better ground clearance as well.

  • Trailer Hitch Fit for 2019 Volkswagen Jetta
    There are a couple of trailer hitches that are a fit for your 2019 VW Jetta, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11540 and Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24978. Both are Class I, 1-1/4 inch hitches, but between the two I strongly recommend going with the Draw-Tite hitch. The reason for that is the Draw-Tite has a concealed crosstube, which is not only aesthetically superior because you can't see the hitch tube, but it also means you have better ground clearance, to avoid any issues...

  • Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch vs. Curt Trailer Hitch for 2020 Volkswagen Jetta
    There is one pretty big difference between the two trailer hitches that fit your 2020 Volkswagen Jetta, the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24978 and the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11540. That difference is in how each of the hitches fit your Jetta. The Draw-Tite has a concealed crosstube so that only the receiver portion shows, while the Curt has a visible crosstube which means the "body" of the hitch shows (as you can see in the accompanying photos). This is important not...
