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.

Hitch came in on-time yesterday. We read the instructions and watched the video 2x before installation. The measurement for cutting the plastic liner on a 2015 Honda CRV was off by 1". It was 16" from the tow hook hole rather than 17". Other than that, instructions were spot on. It helps to install the u hook first to hold the weight of the hitch. This additional contact point with the vehicle also made for a very solid installation. Glad we went with this particular hitch. 209310

Fit perfectly. No issues. Seems very sturdy for holding my bike rack. Was a little tough to install without a helper, but I attached it to the tow hook with the U bolt to help get it into position. Also, I did not remove the plastic panel to cut the access hole. Simply marked it according to the directions and then cut it while still on the car. 285861

Hitch installed without a significant problem. Documentation has a drawing of the appearance panel cut out but you should start with the measurement from the tie down hole to the hitch clearance hole (16.25") and do everything relative to that because the drawing is not proportional to the topology shown on the drawing. Instead of a rectangular hole from the instructions, I went with a slit for the hitch flange and circular holes for the bolt installation. See picture. I would drill the holes to 1" or cut 3 sides of the rectangle and fold the plastic down next time because it's difficult to get the bolts threaded into the holes with limited visibility and imperfect angle to the bolt holes using my method. 456685

The hitch was installed easily and took about 1.5 hours. The major problem was lack of experience with the installation on a newly purchased car. Not wanting to damage the various plastic clips, I used excessive care in their removal. One major concern that I had was the re installation of the plastic splash/dirt shield. In the video, the installer did not re-install the shield "at the owner's request". The installation information that came with the hitch showed a diagram with only one small section cut out. I followed the diagram carefully but found that the shield would not fit over or under the cross member of the hitch. As a result I had to cut out much of the shield thus reducing the number of connection points between the shield and the bottom of the car. I believe that you should update both the YouTube video and your instructions to coincide with the realities of a Honda 2913 CRV. Dave. 80149

Dave, thank you for your thorough feedback. I am going to forward your suggestions on improving the panel trimming instructions to Hidden Hitch, the manufacturer of this hitch. As for updating our video, the installation video of this hitch on a 2013 Honda CR-V available at the moment was made in house during an installation on a customer vehicle. Per the instructions, we gave our customer the choice as to whether they would like the appearance panel trimmed or removed completely. We really do have to accommodate their requests. However, we now realize that seeing this step would be extremely beneficial to our customers. The next opportunity we have to install this hitch on a 2013 Honda CR-V, we will be sure to ask if we can get some footage demonstrating the panel trimming and re-installation process.

We have not yet had a 2014 CR-V in for this particular hitch. We did have one in for a Curt C13119 and we did trim the cover on that vehicle. The hitch is very similar in design and the video will give a pretty close idea as to how it will work with the other hitch you were looking at.

I am traying to install a Hitch to my 2012 CRV but I see you remove a plastic cover that cover the bottom of the CRV before the installation . Do you re-install the botton plastic cover once you complete the installation of the hitch?Regards,

You can either leave the cover off, or you can trim the cover to fit around the hitch and re-install it. We have a video showing how to trim and re-install with this hitch # 90089

The hitch came as described and went on pretty easy. One step is to cut out a portion of the protective shield at the rear of the vehicle. The measurements provided in the installation were off by an inch. I had to cut additional amount to make hitch fit. Otherwise, the hitch looks great on the vehicle and performs like it should. 859591

Hitch installed exactly as the video describes. The only thing I had to do is chase the threads on the rear frame rails with a tap. Because the car is 4 years old and a little rust built up on the threads keeping the mounting bolts from threading in. I have installed two or three of Etrailer’s hitches and wiring harnesses. They all installed in my opinion without a hitch... ha ha !, with out a problem. 816931

Great product!! Easy install if you have the right tools and someone to help hold the hitch up while you secure it. I've uploaded some pictures on the installation and included captions for each. Hopefully these will help others. 2014 CR-V Pic #01 - Before Pic #02 - I used (borrowed) a floor jack and jack stands for more room to work. Be sure to block both front tires if you use jack stands!! Pic #03 - Use soapy water to help remove rubber, muffler hangers. Pic #04 - I did not remove the plastic panel under the car. Seems like a lot of extra work!! The directions tell you to cut out a hole in the plastic panel for the hitch bracket. I was apprehensive cutting a hole because I was worried about debris getting in there. I decided to cut a flap instead. Pic #05 - Once I cut the flap, I had my wife support the hitch so I could get the hitch in place. I then used the u-bolt to support the weight of the hitch so my wife didn't have to stand there and hold it. Pic #06 - I inserted the 2 bolts to support the hitch bracket above the muffler. Don't tighten the bolts at this time. I only have them in with 3 or 4 turns. Pic #07 - I inserted the 2 bolts to support the hitch bracket in the hole of the plastic panel. Again, don't tighten the bolts at this time. I only have them in with 3 or 4 turns. *Note - If you tighten all of the bolts at this time, it will be difficult to get one of the rubber, muffler hangers back on its mount. Center the hitch first using the factory tie down loop under the car as a guide. I tightened the 2 bolts inside the flap first and then attached the muffler hangers. I had to use a wrench to tighten the bolt above the muffler and a ratchet for the other. Tighten the u-bolt last. Pic #08 - I cut a small strip off of the flap about the same width as the hitch mount. Pic #09 - Push flap back up. Pic #10 - I used black gorilla tape to secure the flap. Use simple green or other degreaser to clean the panel first. We'll see how long the tape lasts, but it's easy to replace if needed. Pic #11 - After Pic #12 - Now I can attach my bike rack so I can go mountain biking!! :) 804017

  • Towing Capacity of 2014 Honda CR-V
    According to Honda the towing capacity for your 2014 Honda CR-V is 1,500 lbs. As long as your trailer is not over 1,500 lb when loaded you'd be totally fine. The Draw Tite hitch part # 36520 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your vehicle though and would be a great option for a hitch. For a ball mount then you'd need the part # 36051 and for a hitch ball # 19258 for a 2 inch size and part # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch size. For trailer wiring you'd then want the T-One kit part #...

    You are correct, the trailer hitch is rated higher than the 2013 Honda CR-V but you still have to go by the weight capacities of the vehicle since they are lower. So you will want to stay within the manufacturers 1500 pound limit, even though the hitch is rated higher. The 2300 pound trailer is going to be too much for the CR-V. You would either need a different tow vehicle or an even lighter trailer. If you go with a lighter trailer then you will also need a ball mount, pin and clip,...

There are many bike rack options for 1-1/4 inch trailer hitches that hold 4 bikes. The issue is that on a Class I trailer hitch, the maximum amount of bikes you can carry would be 2.

    Best bet would be to find a camper that is more under 1,500 lbs than the one you mentioned. By the time the trailer is loaded it would be over capacity like you mentioned. We can't recommend you exceed the towing capacity of your vehicle even by a little bit. The Draw Tite hitch part # 36520 that you referenced is a fit for your vehicle though and would have more than enough capacity!

    The towing capacity of your 2014 Honda CR-V is independent of additional weight in the vehicle from passengers, cargo, or fuel.

  • Which Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver Fits a 1998 Honda CR-V
    The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24790 is designed specifically for your 1998 Honda CR-V and will work for you. It's a 1-1/4 inch, Class I hitch. I've attached a video of it being installed on a 2000 CR-V which will be the same basic process as on yours. The other Draw-Tite hitch you mentioned, # 36520, is a Class II hitch receiver however it will not fit your 1998 Honda. It's designed specifically for CR-Vs from 2012 to 2016. If you're going to be towing a trailer with your...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Honda CR-V to Use with a Thule Hitching Post Bike Rack
    The old Thule Hitching Post 958 is best used in a Class II trailer hitch because a Class I hitch has such a low capacity and you are limited to 2 bikes. To get the most out of the rack and for the safest option, use the 2013 CR-V with the Class II trailer hitch. If you are not going to tow anything with the hitch then I recommend the Draw-Tite hitch # 36520 because it includes just the hitch and installation hardware. The Hidden Hitch comes with a ball mount, which you would not need...

  • Recommended Hitch for Towing Small Camper with 2013 Honda CR-V
    I'd rule out the Class I hitch right from the get-go. Even though the vehicle itself has a relatively low tongue weight capacity, I'd recommend you go for the stronger hitch that's offered with a Class II like the Draw-Tite Class II hitch, part # 36520. The higher tongue weight capacity of the Class II hitch (may be limited by tongue weight capacity of the vehicle, see owner's manual for confirmation) will also come in handy if you'd ever use the hitch for accessories like a hitch mounted...

  • Available Draw-Tite Trailer Hitches for 2017 Honda CR-V
    The Draw-Tite hitches that fit the 2014 Honda CR-V are 2-inch hitch # 75742 and 1-1/4-inch hitch # 36520. Neither of these fits the 2017 model year CR-V. These two model years are within different generations of the vehicle and this is why their hitch fits are not common. For the 2017 CR-V we offer the hitches shown on the linked page, both Draw-Tite products, one being a 1-1/4-inch Class II and the other a 2-inch Class III type, part # 76128. Installation is shown in the linked video.

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Honda CR-V For Trike Carrier
    2 inch hitches generally have higher capacities and have more accessory options available since more are made for 2 inch than 1-1/4 inch hitches. In your situation since the manufacturer states that you have a 150 tongue weight capacity you would not gain the capacity advantage. Our trike carrier part # HR1000Z-R-TRKADP that you referenced can fit 2 inch or 1-1/4 inch hitches so it would work with either hitch option. 1-1/4 inch hitches have the advantage of being slightly less visible...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Honda CR-V
    Only certain Curt trailer hitches require the use of a stabilization strap, # 18050, for non-trailer loads such as a bike rack. If you go with a Draw-Tite hitch # 36520 then you will not have to worry about that. The purpose of the strap is to reduce some of the stress on the trailer hitch. It does what it is supposed to do and wouldn't hurt to be used with any hitch if you wanted. The Draw-Tite hitch listed above is actually a Class II trailer hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver so...

  • Would the Curt Folding Cargo Carrier part # C18153 work on a 2012 Honda CRV
    If you have a 2 inch hitch on your 2012 Honda CR-V like the Curt hitch part # C13119 you would not need to use an adapter to install and fold up the Curt Cargo Carrier part # C18153. If you have a hitch with a 1-1/4 inch opening like the Draw Tite Hitch part # 36520 you could use an adapter like the Brophy Hitch adapter part # HTAD, but you should note that doing so will cut the capacity of your hitch in half.
