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.

After reading instructions and watching the video it took about 1hour to install the hitch and trailer hitch It was the easiest trailer hitch and wireing kit I have used installed on a 2018 GMC Terrain 476318

Why doesn't the tube extend the 2" or 3". You have to use the extender to use a simple bike rack 550603


Comments
The design of the draw-tite hitch part 36642 is a bit recessed under the vehicle. An extender will cut your tongue weight capacity by 50 percent. If you do not want to cut your tongue weight the best solution is to get a bike rack with a longer shank. The Thule hitching post pro is designed with 13-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole and the closest part of the carrier. This will give you enough clearance to use it on your GMC Terrain without an extender.

This is a very solid trailer hitch. It fit my 2018 Equinox perfectly and it was easy to install. It only took about 45 minutes to do the complete job and its hidden profile easily keeps the receiver away from obstructions. After one year, it's still in prime condition. 800080

Online video was very good and helpful. There is a wiring harness mount to frame that is unplugged at start of installation. Video did not talk about what to do to replace. If plate was a little shorter, would not have to do anything with wiring. 773811

Perfect fit and all is well on my 2019 Equinox. Paint job on this one seems to be better as I don't see any paint flaking yet from the Wisconsin winters with our salty roads. 764828

Trailer hitch was just what I needed. This is the second hitch purchased from etrailer. The first one I installed. This one I had a mechanic install as I had health issues. It works well with my bike rack. The kit was complete and easy to install. Best done with a helper to hold it in place while you get the bolts started. 764752

My hitch arrived within a few days of placing order. Was very easy to install. Watched a very good YouTube video on the install. This is on a 2019 Equinox. The hitch is a bit lower than the one I had on a 2017 Equinox, but works with my bicycle rack fine. 690605

Shipping was quick and the package arrived in good condition. Installation took approximately 45 minutes. The directions were easy to follow, I used the youtube videos as a backup as well, only because this was my first hitch installation. I would absolutely purchase from this company again. 667608

I ordered and installed the 1 1/4 inch trailer hitch on my 2018 Equnox mainly to tow my 16 ft. Bass boat. I did this because I have had several cars in the past and have always used a 1 1/4 inch hitch and have never had any trouble. All of my inserts are 1 1/4 inch. Now I am reading all the specs for the hitch I installed and find that it is barely heavy enough to fit my towing needs. For the same price I could have installed a 2 inch hitch and not had the light towing restrictions. My only option is to purchase and install the heavier hitch and try to resell my present one. 628639

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

  • Hitch Height of Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch When Installed on a 2018 Chevy Equinox
    When we installed the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 36642 on a 2018 Chevy Equinox we found that from the ground to the top inside of the hitch receiver measured 11". Since you are looking to use a cargo carrier I recommend using the 2" hitch receiver # 76419 instead because it gives you a lot more options when it comes to using a cargo carrier. The ground clearance for this was 10-7/8" when we installed it on a 2018 Equinox. These are your best options for ground clearance with a trailer...

  • 2 inch Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 GMC Terrain without Drilling
    The 2 inch hitches we offer for your 2018 GMC Terrain don't require any drilling to install. The Draw Tite part # 76419 is a great fit for your vehicle if you have the gas engine. If instead you have a diesel engine you'd want the part # 76217. Both require no frame drilling but the diesel engine version does require some fascia trimming that's not noticeable. I attached a picture that shows the trimmed area.

  • Is There a 1-1/4" Hitch for a 2020 Chevrolet Equinox
    There is a 1-1/4" Class II receiver that fits on the 2020 Chevy Equinox with the Draw-Tite # 36642. This hitch has the 1-1/4 receiver that you're looking for. If you're going to be towing anything with your Equinox you may need a few other items to complete your towing setup. If you don't already have a wiring harness for a 4 way trailer connection, you'll want to use the Tekonsha T-one # 118750 (for models excluding the Premier), which tees into your vehicle's electrical system with...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2018 GMC Terrain 1.5 Liter
    Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 36642 is a fit for your 2018 GMC Terrain. But I recommend the Class III hitch # 76419 because it is a more stout hitch and the 2 inch receiver is compatible with many hitch accessories. For the Class III hitch, if you plan on doing some towing, I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch...

  • Will Trailer Hitch from 2017 Chevy Equinox Fit 2019 Equinox
    We have hitches for the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox but the # 36408 Draw -Tite is not a fit because there's a generation change after 2017. Instead, if you want to keep a 1-1/4 inch receiver the only option is part # 36642 If you'd rather upgrade the hitch size to the 2 inch receiver I recommend the Draw-Tite # 76419 which has a concealed crosstube so all you see is the receiver opening under the bumper. That's it in the picture I attached. Be aware neither of these hitches are confirmed...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver Compatible with 2018 Chevy Equinox
    The trailer hitch for your 2014 Chevy Equinox, will fit models from 2005 through 2017. 2018 models had a different frame, so I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 76419 or the 1-1/4 inch # 36642 which is a confirmed fit for the 2018 model year. For your wiring, I recommend # 118285 if you get the tow package or # 118750 if you don't have the tow package. I've linked some videos to assist. If you get the 1-1/4 inch receiver, you...

  • Curt or Draw-Tite Class II Trailer Hitch for 2020 GMC Terrain
    Between the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C98CR and Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 36642 that fit your 2020 GMC Terrain, I would go with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C98CR These are very similar hitches, but the deciding factor here is that the Curt does have the significantly higher tongue weight capacity, 525 lbs vs. 350 lbs for the Draw-Tite. While this may not come into play often, it certainly can make a difference if you need to carry heavier cargo on a cargo carrier,...
