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.

Exactly what I needed. I lease a vw atlas and was looking for a hitch to pull my jet ski with that would be easy to remove and reinstall when my lease is up. It fits right into place and doesn't require any trimming of the bumper like other brands do which was a must for me since I don't own the vehicle. I installed it by myself using a cement block and a few short 2x4's on each side to hold it up while I tightened the nuts. Thank you etrailer.

2020 Volkswagen Atlas

Bought this for my 2020 Atlas 2.0t (not a cross sport). Fit perfect! Instalation video was helpful. Finished the install in about 20 minutes. Used a 5 gallon bucket to help balance the hitch since I didn't have help. Worked great!

2018 Volkswagen Atlas

Easy installation, my husband and I did it together in about 40 start to finish. I found this great video (link below), that helped me understand the installation process. It is a different brand receiver but installs with the same way. On my 2018 Atlas, I was able to fit the bolt through the access hole at an angle without having to expand it with a drill bit/ grinder. I’m Very Happy with this product and DIY project that we completed.


For 2021 Atlas I had to cut the bottom of the bumper at center for the hitch to pull tight against the frame. It also pushes against the rubber damper that holds the exhaust pipe. Hearing a rattle from the rear now...


Easy website to figure out what I needed. Arrived at house in 2 days.

  • Does Draw Tite Hitch for 2021 Volkswagen Atlas SEL Require Drilling or Fascia Trimming
    The Draw Tite hitch part # 36635 does fit your 2021 Volkswagen Atlas SEL, is a simple bolt on install, and would not require fascia trimming or drilling to install.

  • Does Draw Tite Hitch part # 36635 Require Bumper Trimming on 2018 Volkswagen Atlas
    The Draw Tite hitch part # 36635 is a fit for your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas and does not require any bumper trimming or modification. You'd have to enlarge some of the access holes on the frame to fit the hardware into it but that's the extent of the modification.

  • What is the Difference Between the Curt C24ER and the Draw-Tite 36635 on a 2021 VW Atlas
    The difference between the Curt # C24ER and the Draw-Tite # 36635 is pretty severe. The Curt is rated up to 6,000 pounds towing with a 900 pound tongue weight, whereas the Draw-Tite is rated up to 3,500 pounds towing with a 350 pound tongue weight They will both most likely need to have an access hole enlarged a little to get the carriage bolts and spacers to fit inside the frame, but the Curt will require some trimming of the underbody fascia as well. The Draw-Tite does not require this...

  • Recommended Hitch for Bike Rack on 2019 Volkswagen Atlas
    For your 2019 Volkswagen Atlas I recommend the #36635 Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver. This 1-1/4" Class II hitch has a maximum gross trailer weight of 3,500 lbs and a tongue weight of 350 lbs and is perfect for carrying a bike rack or other accessories. It has a concealed cross tube and is a custom fit for your Atlas. If you are looking for a bike rack, I recommend the # TH934XTR Thule Hitching Post Pro - Folding Tilting 4 Bike Rack w Anti-Sway - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches. This will fit...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2018 VW Atlas
    For your 2018 VW Atlas, we have two trailer hitch receivers available. We have a Class II 1-1/4 inch option from Draw-Tite and a Curt Class III 2 Inch receiver. I always recommend a Class III receiver over a Class II because of all of the options for accessories like bike racks and cargo carriers in addition to ball mount options. Not to mention they are just a sturdier and stronger design. Although some people like the smaller hitch receiver opening for a less noticeable hitch. Here...

  • Fit of Draw-Tite 36635 Class II Trailer Hitch on 2021 Volkswagen Atlas SE
    According to the fine folks at Draw-Tite, their # 36635 Class II hitch fits all models of the 2021 VW Atlas except the Cross Sport model. If you'll be using the hitch for light duty towing, you'll need a few additional items to complete your towing system. For a trailer wiring harness, use # C56383. For a ball mount, use # 36061 along with # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch trailer ball or # 19258 for a 2 inch ball. I've linked to install details for the hitch and the wiring harness as well as...

  • Recommended Hitch For A 2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport
    I do have another option for your 2021 VW Atlas, but the Draw-Tite # 36635 is not designed to fit the Cross Sport option, unfortunately. With that being said, the Draw-Tite # DT96MR is designed to fit your 2021 Atlas Cross Sport and will be my recommendation. This is a larger hitch with a 2" opening though, so if you were looking for the 1-1/4" receiver for a bike rack or other accessory you have, you will need an adapter, like the Brophy Hitch Reducer # HT02. This will adapt the 2" receiver...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2021 Volkswagen Atlas
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C93CR you were looking at is confirmed to fit your 2021 Volkswagen Atlas as long as it is the Cross Sport model. If you Atlas is not a Cross Sport you would need the Draw-Tite # 36635 instead. To tow your trailer with a 2-5/16" coupler you will need a ball mount and a 2-5/16" hitch ball. To find the correct ball mount you will want to measure from the ground to the top inside edge of the trailer hitch receiver, and then from the ground to the bottom of...

  • Ball Mount Needed with a 5 inch Rise for Use with a 2018 Volkswagen Atlas
    A high-low adapter like the Roadmaster Adapter # RM-076 that you referenced is designed for use with a flat towing setup, but I do have a solution for you to tow your trailer level with your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas. If the 10-1/2 inch measurement that you took of the hitch receiver on your Atlas is from the ground to the top of the inside of your 2 inch receiver, like the Curt # C13366, then you will need a ball mount that has at least a 5 inch rise as rise and drop measurements typically...
