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.

Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch.

Manufacturer claimed new reduced receiver clearance. I wrongly assumed that the claim was is comparison to plain tube style receivers. Comparing the new unit to (2) old receivers the clearance is about the same or possibly looser in one case. Other than the clearance issue the hitch is what I expected and appears to be very rugged. The larger chain openings are a nice addition. Packaging of the hitch could be improved (hitch had broken through the box and was scratched). 468442

Just installed on my 2004 3500 express. Fit great. Can't wait to get towing. This thing is built like no other hitch I have seen. Very happy, and the price was better than my account with a RV dealer. 449609

Very happy with the hitch I purchased. Came rather quickly and was delivered in a strong box with no damage. Installing the hitch was easy once I drilled out the holes in the frame for the larger hardware. I then set it on a jack and raised it till it touched the frame and attached it just like the video showed. Done. Thanks etrailer. 566027

Very heavy duty. A bit difficult to back up the bolts inside the frame; it would be nice if they were carriage bolts like other models I have seen (maybe with the class V design that is not possible). Had to touch up the powder coat in a few small places where it had chipped off in shipping or something. The powder coat otherwise is very thick and seems very durable. Had to pry the arms of the hitch apart a bit to line up all the forward holes. Also be aware that this uses 5/8" ish bolts so drilling the frame holes bigger is required. Overall pleased with this product, it definitely will not be the weakest link in my towing rig. UPS lost the first shipment, but etrailer was very good about sending another right away. 904888

Beast of a hitch! It was a bit of a pain to open up the holes in the frame for the larger hardware to fit, but it's a small price to pay for the increased strength. a couple caveats for the install that were not mentioned in the install videos that I watched. The first is in regards to the "L" brackets. There is a LEFT and a RIGHT bracket; they are not interchangeable, and are not marked. When you install them, drop a bolt through the bottom hole and through the frame, and then try to put a bolt through the side hole and through the frame. If it goes through, you have the correct bracket for that side. If it doesn't, use the other bracket on that side. The 2nd caveat is to install a washer on the bolts before passing them through the mounting holes. Install vid only shows / mentions washers on the nut side, but their should be washers on both sides. 864694

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2014 GMC Savana Cutaway Chassis
    The trailer hitches we have available for the 2014 GMC Savana Van are designed to fit the full size van model. To see if these will fit your Cutaway version, I just recommend taking a couple measurements on the vehicle's frame. The trailer hitch I recommend is the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 41946. This is a heavy-duty Class V hitch that will provide a 2 inch receiver opening and a towing capacity of 10,000 pounds, although you will want to check the capacity of the...

  • Size of Safety Chain Hooks on Draw Tite Hitch
    I went to the warehouse to take a look at the safety chain hooks on Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 41946 and they measured about 1 inch wide and about 3/4 inches thick at its widest point. I took a look at a number of them and there was some slight variance in the thickness so it is highly likely yours is not exactly that width. It is not absolutely necessary for the spring latch (the catch) to snap shut because in the unlikely event the safety chains come into play the latch really isn't...

  • Recommended Hitch, Wiring and Brake Controller for 2016 Chevrolet Express Van
    I can get you set up with everything you need for your 2016 Chevy Express Van. The hitch I recommend is the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame # 41946, a Class V hitch with a maximum tongue weight of 1,500 lbs and maximum towing capacity of 10,000 lbs. You can check out the photo I've added to see how it looks on a '16 Express Van. To add a brake controller you would need a few parts, starting with a 4-flat connector, the Hopkins # 31345. From there, you would need the Universal Installation Kit...

  • Recommended Class V Trailer Hitch for 1996 Chevy G30 Blue Bird School Bus
    We do have a few Class V trailer hitches available that are designed for the 1996 G30 chassis, such as the Draw-Tite # 41946, but I am not sure they will be a good fit for your Blue Bird School Bus. The bolt holes on these hitches will match up to the frame on your vehicle, however since it was converted to a bus, its body will likely affect the fit of a custom trailer hitch. For this reason, I instead recommend looking into a weld-on, heavy-duty hitch that has a universal design. Something...

  • Trailer Hitch, Brake Controller, And Wiring Recommendation For 2014 GMC Savana Van With No Tow Pkg
    I will start with the trailer hitch for your 2014 Savana. From my research I found the Savana can tow a trailer up to 10,000 lbs. The trailer hitch I recommend is the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 41946. This is a Class V hitch and has a 2 inch receiver opening. You might be interested in 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...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2005 Chevy Express Van Towing Horse Trailer
    Horses and horse trailers are pretty heavy. Your best option is to go with the highest hitch classification available for the vehicle. If you have a 2005 Chevy Express Van the Draw Tite hitch part # 41946 would be what I recommend as it has plenty of towing capacity at 10,000 lb capacity, is a custom fit, and is priced good.

  • Will Draw-Tite Class III Hitch # 41946 Fit a Motorhome on 2005 Chevy Express 3500 Cutaway Chassis
    The Draw-Tite Class III hitch you mentioned, part # 41946 will fit a 2005 Chevy Express, but I couldn't say if it'll fit a motorhome on a cutaway van chassis. Usually the rear bumper structure at the rear of a motorhome is much different that it would be if the vehicle was finished as a van. If you look at the photo I've provided, you can see the relevant measurements. The side to side distance between the bolt holes measured center hole to center hole is 40-11/64 inches. The drop (distance...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2005 Chevy Express 2500 3/4 Ton Van
    The Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver w/ Cast Center - Custom Fit - Class V - 2" # 41946 is a confirmed fit for your 2005 Chevy Express van but the measurements are correct. This hitch does require drilling to install rounding out the holes, so that may account for the difference. My recommendation for you is to use the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class IV - 2" # 14090 which measures 40 inches wide on center. This hitch requires no drilling for installation....

  • Higher Capacity Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Chevy Express 3500
    The hitch you would want for your 2014 Chevy Express 3500 Van is the Draw Tite part # 41946 which is a confirmed fit and has a 10,000 lb total trailer weight capacity. If you check out the picture I attached you can see that the hitch opening is flush with the rear bumper which is about as far out as you would want it to be. Your shins will thank you for not trying to use a longer one. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Dimensions of Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch 41945 for Fitment on E-450 Cutaway Chassis
    I reached out to my contact at Draw-Tite who was able to give me the dimensions for the Trailer Hitch # 41945. He said that the # 41946 is for GM frames so it won't fit your Ford E-450 Chassis. From the rearmost hole to the end of the receiver measures 8-5/8" and then from that same hole to the middle and forward-most holes measures 2-3/8" and 10-1/2" respectively. From side to side the back 2 holes measure 38-5/8" apart while the forward-most holes measure 38-7/16" apart.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2016 GMC Savana Van with 1,200 lb Tongue Weight Capacity
    For your 2016 GMC Savana Van 3500 we have the Reese Hitch part # 41946 as a confirmed fit that has a 1,200 lb tongue weight capacity. As long as you are sure your trailer has at least the same capacity this would fit and work well.
