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.

Toyota Venza

The Draw-Tite Class II trailer hitch for our Toyota Venza fit perfectly. The etrailer instructional video was spot on. The helpful hints like using a wobble socket extension to get to some of the bolts post installation was great. I'd definitely recommend getting a helper to get the first bolts started. I installed the hitch without help which took me twice as long. I supported the muffler to avoid putting undue pressure on the exhaust pipe joints and I used two jack stands to hold the main hitch bar up while getting a bolt started on each side. The etrailer quality, price competitiveness and service are outstanding! I would not hesitate to buy from etrailer again.

Toyota Venza

Order delivered on time. It fit my car perfectly and hubby installed it in less than 30 minutes. We didn’t need to drop the muffler on my 4cyl Toyota Venza. Best price and service so I’d definitely buy from again.

2014 Toyota Venza

The trailer hitch was received quickly and as ordered. After reviewing the installation video the task was very simple with a perfect fit. The holes and bolts lined up and I attached the hitch by myself at 70 years old. I used a knee to hold up one side of the hitch and attached a bolt to the opposite side. Then I attached a second bolt to the other side. My experience with etrailer has been easy and simple and recommend them to everyone.

Also, the hitch is barely noticeable but does enhance the appearance of my venza. The tube sits in front of the muffler to hide it from the rear but gives the car a more sturdy appearance.

2013 Toyota Venza

Detailed info & pics . Can't go wrong . Best pricing & shipping.
The folks at e trailer got ya covered start to finish.
5 different vehicles over the years and fitted each one with a hitch from

2010 Toyota Venza

If you have an extra pair of hands (son, wife, neighbor...) it takes 25-35 min to instal this hitch receiver. The 4 cylinder Venza 2010 allow you to save 10 min you don't need to loose muffler. It is unpleasant to be backlayed on your dryway under the rain. Choose the sunny day.


It's a perfect fit very easy installation delivery was on time very efficient very happy


Information was excellent and reading customer reviews was helpful. It took about an hour to install. Product came quick.

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

  • Could Trailer Hitch for 2012 Toyota Venza be Used as Tow Point
    A trailer hitch like the Draw Tite part # 36512 that you referenced would work as a recovery point like you mentioned. It even has tow hooks built into it to allow for an easy place for the strap to connect to.

  • Recommended Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2013 Toyota Venza
    There are 2 Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver options for your 2013 Toyota Venza; one with a 1-1/4 inch receiver # 36512 and the other with a 2 inch receiver # 75663. We always recommend going with a 2 inch receiver over a 1-1/4 inch receiver because you will be able to use more accessories and get more out of a 2 inch receiver. The Draw-Tite # 75663 has a Tongue Weight (TW) capacity of 350 lbs and a Gross Towing Weight (GTW) capacity of 3,500 lbs. If you were to use a Weight Distribution...

  • What Size Bolts are Used to Install Trailer Hitch 75663 on a 2010 Toyota Venza
    Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75663 for the 2010 Toyota Venza uses M10-1.25 x 40mm CL 10.9 Hex Bolts, 3/8” Conical toothed Washers, and 5/16” x 1” x 1-1/2” Block-Spacer, ( AWD vehicles only). If you have the hitch but not the hardware order # RHK. Enter the hitch number and manufacturer on that page to get the right hardware. If you have the hardware but it is not going in easily then the weldnuts will need to be cleaned. I have included some links that show and explain this for you.

  • 2010 Venza Hitch Recommendation for Carrying Bike Rack
    We have 1-1/4 inch hitches for your 2010 Toyota Venza that will work great to carry a bike rack. I recommend the Draw Tite part # 36512 as unlike the Curt hitch for your vehicle it does not require the use of a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Camber 2 part # TH9058. We asked our demo and install guys to name their favorite, most easy-to-use bike racks and this...

  • Will Trailer Hitch Affect Performance of 2014 Toyota Venza
    A trailer hitch alone on your 2014 Toyota Venza such as the Draw-Tite # 75663 will not affect the performance of your vehicle. The hitch weighs just 40 lbs and that is not nearly enough to be a factor in how your vehicle handles. If you are pulling a trailer then yes, the weight of the trailer will definitely impact how your 2014 Venza performs; it will take longer to brake and accelerate as well as potentially reduce traction if you do not have your tongue weight in the recommended 10...

  • Trailer Hitch, Wiring, and towing Accessories for a 2011 Toyota Venza
    What the dealer most likely meant is that the Toyota Venza does not come with a factory tow package and thus there are no official tow package parts made for it that are OEM. You can still install a trailer hitch and wiring in your 2011 Venza. The Draw-Tite Hitch, # 36512, that you referenced is a good choice. Even though the hitch has a gross trailer weight capacity of 3,500 pounds, you must still go by the owners manual for the towing capacity of the vehicle and go by it. If that is...

  • Where to Install Support Strap When Using Curt Trailer Hitch on 2011 Toyota Venza with Yakima HoldUp
    To avoid contact with the spoiler on your 2011 Toyota Venza you can connect the Stabilizing Strap # 18050 to the safety chain loop on the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C12341 and then loop it around the Yakima HoldUp # Y02445 bike tray that is closest to your trunk. If you want to avoid using the strap altogether you can use the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 36512 instead. This has the same basic design as the Curt option but it doesn't require the use of a stabilizing strap to keep...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for 2013 Toyota Venza and 2004 Toyota Matrix
    Because of the upper spoiler-trim piece on the Venza, the trunk mount bike rack I recommend for your 2013 Toyota Venza and 2004 Toyota Matrix is the Hollywood Racks Over-The-Top 3 Bike Rack for Vehicles with Spoilers # HRF2-3. This bike rack is designed to take any weight, that more traditional trunk mount bike racks would place on the spoiler, off of the spoiler by moving the attachment points of the straps on the rack up higher. The # HRF2-3 can carry 3 bikes and has a weight capacity...
