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.

Wanted a 2” receiver (out of stock) but had to get this 1 1/4” one instead. Installation was straightforward (watch the videos) and fairly easy. This is the 4-5 hitch that I have gotten from etrailer. Super simple ordering process and they are always happy to answer any questions that a person might have. Thanks again for the great service & products!!

Hitch has worked out perfectly on my 2020 Subaru Forester. I have a bike rack attached and it's held extremely well.

Product arrived quickly. It feels like a great quality product. Unfortunately the packaging was lacking and allowed the finish to be damaged during shipment. The product now lacks weather protection for winter climates.

after a year of use on my 2020 Subaru Forester I can highly recommend this hitch. I use hitch to tow a utility trailer and for a bike rack. Installation was very easy. I did use my quick jack to lift the vehicle a bit for install but you could probably install without jacking. Follow the video on Curt hitch, install is almost identical.

I'm very happy with this hitch! I will use it mainly for a bike rack, so I didn't bother with anyting electrical. This hitch is certianly installable DIY, just take your time. I watched all the videos and mostly followed them. I was nervous about lowering the exhast, but that was the easiest part. I snipped out the heat shield and reinstalled it. Some hitch videos recomended just drilling holes in [the heat shield], or simply removing it. On the driver side I didn't bother removing the whole box, instead I just removed the two bolts on the frame and pushed it out of the way, which worked great.

Hitch worked exactly as described; delivery as promised and the install took 45 minutes! And it looks great.

Was relatively easy to install. You really need two people. It is very difficult for one person to hold up and get the nuts threaded. I almost lost a bolt inside the frame, but eventually got it out, so keep the fish wires on until you are ready to put the nut on. Also the videos are invaluable. There is enough ground clearance on the Forester that you don't need to jack it up or put it on stands or a lift. I've had my hitch on for a year now and no problems.

Fit good and installation went well. It took me about 90 minutes but I was not working fast. The biggest trouble I had was reinstalling the unibody trim behind the rear wheel. In the first step they have you take that all the way out. That's what I did. I think it could be possible to just remove the two screws where the trim is fastened to the frame where the hitch is bolted. The trim is quite flexible and the hitch could be installed with that trim there. I did not test that though

Installed on my 2019 Subaru Forester with no issues in about 1 hr. The installation video is a big help. This is the 2nd hitch that I bought from etrailer, previously installed one on a 2017 VW Jetta, also installed with no issues. Great product.

I found the hitch relatively easy to install by myself. I found a 2018 install video on YouTube done by a U Haul employee helpful. One difference was for my 2019 Forester, I did not need to cut the bumper cover as she did on the 2018. I had more trouble with the muffler hangers getting on and off than anything else.

    I can confirm for you that you do not need to enlarge any holes in the frame of your 2019 Subaru Forester in order to install either of the Draw-Tite trailer hitches that fit your vehicle: - Class II with 1-1/4" Receiver: Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 36671 - Class III with 2" Receiver: Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76271 The reason is, the Draw-Tite hitches use the larger rear frame access hole to fishwire the spacers and bolts through, so the hardware will fit without...

  • Does Hitch Size Affect Warranty of 2019 Subaru Forester
    Hitch size should not affect the warranty of your 2019 Subaru Forester. So if you wanted a 2 inch hitch like the mostly hidden Curt part # C47HR you'd be fine to install it. When you install an aftermarket part on your vehicle like a trailer hitch in this case, you are protected by the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act. This act states, in part, that unless the installation and the part caused a problem then the warranty cannot be voided. I recommend looking it up online.

  • Comparison of Draw-Tite 76271 and 36671 for a 2020 Subaru Forester
    The Draw-Tite # 76271 is a Class III hitch with a 2 inch receiver tube.

The # 36671 is a Class II hitch that uses the smaller 1-1/4 inch receiver tube. Both hitches have the same towing capacity, but the Class III has a much larger tongue weight capacity at 525 lbs than the 350 lb capacity of the Class II.
