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 ripping the hitch off my 2500hd while pulling a mini excavator I bought this hitch. This hitch is awesome! Bolts into place perfect no issues what so ever. Very heavy duty, and safety chain holes that are actually big enough to use! I feel much more confident with this hitch while pulling my 30' camper, mini excavator and skid steer. Thanks etrailer! 573371

Product is very well built, impressed with the quality of the hitch, much beefer than the stock hitch. Shipping container was pretty much trashed but everything was there. The diagram in the instructions were kind of faded and difficult to read, took us (two) 3 hrs to install with air tools. So far very satisfied, haven’t tow with it yet. Taking a trip in October 2018. We will see! 565265

Hitch arrived in excellent condition due to good packaging. No scratches in the paintwork, which by the way appeared well prepared and painted. Installation went relatively smoothly after the instructions were thoroughly understood. The reason I say relatively is that a Porta Power (hydraulic ram) was needed to spread the rear of the frame less than 1/4" to line up bolt holes. The vehicle is 17 years old and who knows what may have happened to the rear end of the frame by the previous owner(s). I also ordered CurtT-Connector #55774 wiring harness which unfortunately arrived without the mounting hardware. The bracket and harness did arrive however the mounting screws and nuts did not. Luckily my son and I installed it at his garage so we had the needed hardware on hand. Overall installation took us about 2 hours including spreading the frame and mounting the wiring harness. 612115

After the factory installed hitch on my '01 GMC 2500HD showed signs of severe fatigue (broken welds and fatigue cracks) , the Draw Tite replacement was much more capable for the task of pulling our 35' Newmar Country Star travel trailer.

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

  • Where Are Draw-Tite Hitches Made?
    The Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver w/ Cast Center # 41944 for your 2004 GMC Sierra is made in Mexico. However, Curt hitches like Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15312 are all made in the USA.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Flatbed
    The Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 41944 which is a fit for a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD does have an option for installation without the factory rear bumper so it should work for you as you can see in the attached photo. Therefore, so long as there is nothing in the way of the receiver tube opening you would be good to go. If the flatbed does interfere with the receiver tube opening then you can go with the B&W Heavy-Duty Trailer Hitch Receiver part # BWHDRH25187...

    Correct, the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver w/ Cast Center part # 41944 which is a fit for your 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 doesn't have a bracket to mount the trailer connector. However, you can use the No-Drill Mount Bracket part # 18136 in order to do so. For a trailer wiring harness, I recommend the Reese Multi-Plug Wiring Harness part # 74682 which will provide you with both 4 and 7-way trailer connection points.

The Draw-Tite Ultra Frame is a Class V hitch with a 2" receiver tube opening. Please note that the vehicle will more than likely be the limiting factor in regards to GTW and TW capacities.

It does require that the truck have the factory bumper and brackets for installation. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation for you. For a ball mount and balls I recommend the MaxxTow adjustable ball mount # MT70380. It is rated for 12,000 pounds gross trailer weight and includes a 2 inch and 2-5/16 inch ball. I also recommend...

Instead, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C15323 which has the same class V rating and 2" receiver tube opening as the above.

  • How to Order Replacement Hitch Installation Hardware for Draw-Tite 41944 Class V Hitch
    Trailer hitches like the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame # 41944 must be installed using the exact hardware specified by the manufacturer. If alternate hardware is used the hitch's capacity could be reduced and such an installation would void the hitch warranty. We can get you a complete replacement hardware kit, part # RHK. This will be all of the original correct hardware to install this hitch on one of the compatible vehicles, such as your 2005 Silverado 3500. Just enter RHK in our search box...

  • Height of Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch 41944 Compared to Factory Hitch on a 2006 GMC Sierra 2500
    There is maybe a 1/2 inch of space between the top of the receiver tube and the bottom of the bumper with hitch # 41944 installed on a 2006 GMC Sierra 2500. It is going to be positioned just about identically to the factory hitch which is to say just about up against the bottom of the bumper. For this hitch I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # EBMK2416 which comes with a ball mount, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. The ball mount has a 3 in rise or 4 inch drop. If...

For the most part, the hitch is not all that close to the exhaust as you can see in the linked instructions and video.

    For your 2004 GMC Sierra 2500HD we have the Draw Tite part # 41944 which is a Class V confirmed as a fit for your truck once you remove the factory hitch. This will also work with your front Torklift tie down # TLC2205 but you'll need to go with a new rear tie down part # TLC3205. For a 4-way you can install inline with your 7-way we have the part # C55384 which will work great. This 4-way is 36 inches long so you would probably not need an extension.

    It will not if your truck came from the factory with a pickup bed. The Draw-Tite # 41936 is for a cab and chassis truck which uses a narrower frame than the pickup. If you have the pickup, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite # 41944 which has a similar capacity of 13K towing and 1950 lbs of tongue weight. This is the most reasonably priced high capacity hitch we offer for your truck. I've linked to an installation video and the install instructions for you.

  • Can a Hitch Extender be Used to Lower 2009 Chevy Silverado Tailgate without Hitting Trailer Jack
    Using an extender such as # MT70024 will reduce the trailer hitch tongue weight capacity by 50 percent so I do not recommend using it. Especially with weight distribution due to the extra stresses involved. You would need to install a 2-1/2 inch hitch, # 41944. Then you could use Titan extension # RP45292 at the 24 inch length with weight distribution. The capacity when used with weight distribution at the 24 inch length is 8,000 pounds.
