Some Escape models beginning with the 2010 model year have a vibration dampener installed on the tailpipe which interferes with the installation of this hitch. The dampener can be removed and left off or welded onto the other side of the exhaust pipe.

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.

The hitch was easy to install and fits my bike rack perfectly. Customer service (telephone) was extremely helpful. Allison K. was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I am very pleased with the product and the service.

This is the 3rd hitch I've purchased from you and I have been very satisfied every time. The hitched arrived today around noon. The box was pretty badly beaten up. With the hitch sticking out but inside in a separate box that was very well packed were the rest of ordered parts. Thanks for you attention to packing I didn't loose anything in transit. Imagery happy with your service and your pricing. We will do business in the future.

Fit perfect! Easy installation, and fair price!


Comments
Very well built, and the paint still looks new! Also very easy installation. I would suggest lock washers, or lock nuts be a part of the hardware. I should have bought the hitch with it, as other brands dont fit.

This may be the third hitch I have ordered from etrailer, all have been easy to install. It might have been a bit easier to have four pull wires than the two provided, but it was an easy install regardless. It's on my wife's car to mount a bike rack to carry her new e-bike.

Yes, I received the hitch a few days ago, and actually, I just had it installed this morning by my mechanic. So far, it's working great. I've attached two pictures.
I appreciate the quality product and great customer service.

2011 Escape Bike hitch and wiring harness. Videos were extremely helpful. Installed yesterday after a week in bed with a virus. It helps when your neighbor has a body shop (tools) and can come haul you out from under the car if he doesn't see any movement in 15 min. Have some extra wire ties handy and you will be ok. I put two coats of etching primer and 2 more coats of white automotive enamel on my hitch so it would match my body paint. If you are working by yourself , do the front two bolts first , lift the hitch ( w/ draw bar in) up on a bucket with some shims until the back holes line up then cinch them up. This is my second e-trailer hitch I,ve done, won't go anywhere else.


Comments
The hitch has been everything I expected. I have used it mainly as a bike hauler and for a cargo rack. I painted mine white to match the Ford Escape and I have a problem where the safety chains attach. They scrape all the paint off showing the black, but a little touch up once in awhile solves the problem. I just dont like to see rust stains forming around the welds. I would buy this product again.

The hitch receiver works great and is well built. Unfortunately the car wasn't as it sheared the rusted area out when pulling a 1200lb load. Definitely not the fault of the receiver or the way it mounts, just an extremely rusted vehicle.




by:

I thought that I could easily install this, per the instructions, But I'm lazy and retired...So, a guy up the street runs a "mechanic on the Road" repair (in the street) business, among others. Anyway, since he's under cars a lot I thought he could easily install the hitch. After a failed start, I showed him how to "Fish" the bolts/washers, and after another try or two he succeeded...however, he claimed that he had to grind down the bolt/washer assy. Charged me more...still better than doing it myself at my age. I'm sure that it can be easily done as described with a little moxie

This email asking how my trailer hitch is doing caught me totally off guard. That's follow up service that you don't see now a'days.
Let me tell you, just order the right one and it is so easy to install. I haven't thought about it since the first couple weeks. You know, the new period. I have a trailer hitch and I think I will use my trailer for this trip to the hardware store hahaha. After that, it's become like every other tool I own. It pulled HEAVY loads PA->NC a few times during a move. Then a wild move to the west coast where I pulled trailer from NC all the way to the west coast. Unknown trips to the dump, hauling things for family (nice to have a family member with a trailer and hitch.) I also bought a shelf for putting things on the back like coolers or boxes or things you just rather not have in your car. Didn't work well for the Elantra, too low to the ground for the shelf attachment sticking off the back.

Suffice to say, this is my opinion, I used my trailer above spec weight on occasion (I believe this because tires were rubbing on the fenders for a bit just before I reached my destination.) I tried to maintain tounge weight, but may have exceeded that as well ?? I could have been lucky, I could have been within tolerance but I have a history of breaking tools because I use them alot, (and sometimes you gotta improvise, anybody tells you different has not worked on anything anywhere anytime.) My hitch never budged a bit. It was so great, I believe they should be standard issue on a car.

If you want a trailer hitch on your car, don't forget the light package, they had the one for my make and model. I just clipped it in, put on the hitch by myself and loved it ever since. (You may want to have assistance holding the hitch in place while putting the bolts in place. I did it myself but I have done lots of mechanical work.) Get one, stop searching, be happy.

2010 Ford Escape

This is a nice hitch, planning on using it for a bike rack and a little come-behind trailer. My ordering experience was excellent: shortly after the initial order, I realized I needed to change something. Called and it was taken care of quickly and easily. Great customer service! It also shipped and arrived quickly.

Installation was also straightforward on my 2010 Escape. It took me slightly over an hour. You will want a second pair of hands to lift and hold while youre fitting the bolts if youre solo, Id suggest planning out your propping method because the hitch is fairly heavy.

The fish wires work very well. However, the bolt head would not fit through the access hole on my Escape. Once I realized I could put it through head-first and then it would reverse itself while in the shaft, it was good. Also I needed a 3/4 socket not 7/8 as the instructions said. But hey, its done and looks good. Cant wait to tow something!




by:

It was simple to install and I save a metric ton of money. Could it be better????

etrailer was excellent, the hitch was back ordered but I needed the bike rack for my other vehicle. etrailer actually split the order so that I could go on my weekend trip!!!!

Thanks and kudos.




by:

The trailer hitch fit perfect and I had good results with the coil wire that put the bolts into the frame.The wiring kit was easy also.I would recommend these products for the Diyers with mechanical aptitude.John in Customer Service was very helpful in answering all my concerns and put my mind at ease with purchasing these products and these products were very inexpensive.

Etrailer.com was fantastic to deal with. Ordering was easy and fast. The order tracking provided was great and again easy. The product itself a drawtite hitch for my Ford Escape was as fast and easy with the information provided by etrailer. Took me less then 40 minutes for hitch and the wiring was about 50 minutes. Great job etrailer.com




by:

Bolted right up as expected. I've had it for a year now and it's been flawless. Very happy. Combined it with the wiring harness and mount for connection and it looks factory but I did it in the driveway in under an hour. Would recommend to anyone.

This is not a product review as such. This is a "warning" to those who do a Google search of hitches to find the variety of businesses out there who sell hitches and such. I did one of those searches and, have found out that, when I clicked on "etrailer" (pricing sells me, I have experience with the product names), I was directed to a site that looks like the etrailer site, but when I searched for the product for my vehicle, I received a hitch for a different vehicle. Now, upon calling the etrailer folks and informing them of this "glitch" I am told that there are "problems" with Google!! Now, is Google getting the wrong information from etrailer regarding their product numbers? The order went through etrailer as if I had not done a search via Google. But, upon calling etrailer to resolve the matter and ordering the correct hitch, that, I was going to have to pay the shipping charges for the CORRECT hitch in the first place. Now, call me computer illiterate, but, I would think that this is a "glitch" that should be able to be fixed without too much trouble!! Other than that, The etrailer gal was very sweet and, I'm sure was responding to my dilemma as instructed. I just don't feel that this was a "glitch" in the system that I should be paying for to correct. Other than that, I will be ordering from etrailer again--but I'll go directly to their .com website next time.

Perfect Class II for my needsThis hitch fit perfectly and installed in about a half-hour. The only tool needed was a (torque) wrench. The installation was a breeze, especially after watching the online video at etrailer.com (the printed instructions and illustrations are a little hard to follow).

This was the perfect basic Class II hitch for my Ford Escape Hybrid. With its limited towing capacity, I didn't need anything stronger or fancier. It appears to be more than adequate for my occasional light towing needs.

The included drawbar (ball mount), pin, clip, and hitch cover were a real bonus, and made this selection an even greater bargain. All I needed to add was a ball and wiring.

Shipping from etrailer.com was fast and efficient, although the box the hitch was packed in wasn't up to the task -- one end of the hitch had broken through the box and was sticking out. Fortunately, the only damage was a tiny paint chip -- no big deal. Otherwise, the price and service were unbeatable.




by:

I wish I would have taken pictures to show how easily this hitch installed.
This is the second hitch from etrailer I have installed, (different vehicles), both were easy!

I believe the instructions mentioned drilling access holes in the frame to aid in bolt placement, I didn't need to!
I just used the pull wires to install one side, (had to jiggle one bolt/spacer assembly to get it in place). Installed the conical washers and nuts on the first side to hold it in place. Then repeated the process on the other side. Torqued all the bolts to the listed specification. Done!I

By the way, I'm recovering from a total knee replacement seven weeks ago, I knew this would be an easy install so I gave it a shot. Disclaimer, maybe you should check with your Dr or PT first, like I didn't do,?? oops.

I should have timed the installation, I think writing this review took longer than the installation.

  • Hitch Comparisons for a 2009 Ford Escape Limited 4wd
    There are two differences between the two hitches you mention. The Curt hitch is constructed of round tubing, and the Draw-Tite is made of square tube stock. Secondly, the Curt warrantly states that a stabilizing strap like # 18050 needs to be used for extra support for non-trailer loads. This can be a hassle on some vehicles, especially hatch backs or vehicles with spoilers/wind diffusers. Since the Draw-Tite hitch doesn't have that requirement, I'd recommend going with the Draw-Tite....

  • Will the Draw-Tite # 36501 Receiver Fit with an OEM 1-1/4" Receiver on a 2005 Mazda Tribute

Instead of the 1-1/4" option I recommend going with the 2" receiver because it will allow you to use a wider variety of accessories. Please note that whichever way you do end up...

  • Are Stabilizing Straps Needed for all Class II Hitches on a 2008 Ford Escape or Only the CURT Hitch
    Only CURT Mfg. requires the use of a stabilizing strap, # 18050, for non trailer loads on their Class I and Class II trailer hitches, but it is a good idea to help eliminate the stress that bike racks and cargo carriers place on the hitch and vehicle frame. In my opinion the added flexibility of the 2 inch receiver, # 13650, is the way to go if it is available when installing a hitch on your vehicle. The hitch is only more visible in as much as the receiver portion is larger, but the ability...
