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.

Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Installation - 2019 Honda Pilot

Today on our 2019 Honda Pilot, we're going to be taking a look at and I'm going to show you how to install the Draw-Tite class III mesh frame trailer hitch receiver.This is what our hitch is going to look like when it's installed. You can see the cross tube is completely hidden behind the bumper fascia. It's going to maintain a nice clean look on the back of the vehicle.This hitch is going to be a class three hitch, so it's going to work great for all your class three accessories. It's going to give us a two inch by two inch receiver tube opening, reinforced collar to give us a little extra stability there. Hitch pin hole which is going to be this one here is going to be 5/8 inch in diameter its going to take a standard 5/8 inch hitch pin. It does not come with a hitch however it can be found here at etrailer.com.This forward hole here is going to be for a J-Pin stabilization device only.

But that inaudible 00:00:43 will take any shake and play out of any of your hitch mount accessories.So what's different about this hitch is instead of having a plate on the bottom or a rolled steel style face chain loop, these plates are going to go up and down so it keeps this nice and sleek look. However, you can see the holes are very open so its going to give us plenty of room for different size hooks. The other thing that's going to set this hitch apart from others is going to be this pre welded bracket right here. This is going to be for any of your wiring accessories that you may want to add later on.This hitch is also going to have a nice black powder coat finish that's going to resist any rust or corrosion.Now as far as weight capacities go we're going to have a 900 pound max tongue weight which is the downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube, 6,000 pound gross trailer weight which is the trailer plus the load included. You can use weight distribution with this hitch.

Tongue weight is going to stay the same however your trailer weight is going to go up to 8,000 pounds.I do recommend checking the owner's manual of your Honda to make sure the vehicle can withstand that amount of weight. You're going to pick the lowest inaudible 00:01:41 between the vehicle and the hitch.As far as the installation goes, it's a very simple, straightforward installation. You're going to use existing lug nuts in the frame. It's going to come with all the hardware and there's not going to be any drilling or welding required. I do recommend getting an extra set of hands to help you lift the hitch into place.Now lets give you a few measurements to help you when deciding on any hitch mount accessory you may need, such as a bike rack, ball mount or cargo carrier.

From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer most part of the bumper is going to be about three inches. This number is important for any of your hitch mount accessories that may fold up against your vehicle.From the ground to the top inner-most part of the receiver tube is going to be about 15 inches. Now, let's show you how to get this installed.The first thing we need to do to start our installation is go ahead and remove your spare tire. We are going to be using three existing weld nuts in the bottom of each frame rail. That's a good idea because these are open to the elements.

We're going to go ahead and spray some lubricant in there, use a nylon tube brush and clean the threads. What we don't want is we don't want our bolts to cross-thread and cause an issue with those weld nuts.So with an extra set of hands we're going to lift our hitch into place. We're going to take our hex-bolt inaudible 00:02:49 and we're going to make sure the teeth are facing up towards the hitch. We're going to get one installed on each side to hold our hitch in place while we install our remaining hardware.22 millimeter socket, we're going to tighten and then torque all of our hardware to the specifications in the instructions.Once your hitch is installed you may reinstall your spare tire and you're ready to go.That will do it for look at and installation on a Draw-Tite, class three, mesh frame trailer hitch receiver on our 2019 Honda Pilot.

Built as solid as I could have hoped for. I like the built in look of the Honda hitch but not the dealer price tag. It came quickly on the day they anticipated and I installed it in about 25 minutes with 1 extra set of hands. I did have to remove the spare, and I’m not sure how some people don’t but that wasn’t a big issue. The only 1 thing I am not 100% satisfied with is that (look at the picture) the molding on the back of the car rests very lightly on the top of the hitch receiver. You can see that it ever so slightly goes up in the middle now. I would have liked it not to actually touch. I’m not sure if it was manufactured a quarter inch too short or if our molding was a qtr in too low but that’s my one gripe. I do still like it and am happy with how solid it feels and how easily it went on. 704288

I received my hitch for my 2017 Honda Pilot 2 days earlier than expected. It was so easy to install. It recommends to be install by two persons. I managed to do it my self. A little tuff, but got it on. etrailer recommends to get the nylon tube brush, part #81492, and I also recommend it. Made the bolts screw on a lot better by having the threads clean. As always etrailer staff, Thank you for your help. I high recommend to all my friends to shop at here. 651665

As I recently purchased an 18 Honda Pilot EX-L, I was contemplating just having the dealer do the install on an OEM hitch. At well over $1000, I knew that I could save hundreds with a hitch from E Trailer. I only use my hitch to carry my bikes on a Thule platform rack, but with thousands of miles of use with three different cars, I have become spoiled to the ease of loading and unloading my bikes with the platform rack. This is the 4th Draw-Tite Hitch that I have ordered from etrailier.com over the past 6 years. Hands down, by far the easiest to install. I think it took me longer to unpacked the hitch that actually tighten down the 6 bolts. With the spare tire removed, there was plenty of room. I used my floor jack to raise the hitch up to a level that I could hold the hitch while starting one bolt by hand.I then tightened the other two and moved to the other side. I finished by using a torque wrench to tighten all six bolts to specs. As always, the videos are very detailed, and the customer service is top notch. I spent a couple extra dollars for upgraded shipping and it paid off, the hitch was at my door step a few days after I ordered it. Great job E- Trailer! 486575

I am very happy with the results from the trailer hitch and wiring harness I purchased from etrailer.com. Installation was very easy and I saved $800.00 from a dealer install. Thanks. 557893


Comments
I am very happy with the results on my trailer hitch. Everything is working as it should, but I would have preferred a hitch that was more like Hondas and integrated into the bumper for a cleaner look. But no regrets.

Receiver easy to install. Great product. A little difficult to torque the mounting bolts to 185lb. Wiring harness was very easy to install. Only a couple of removable access panels and the job was done. 442378

Ordered it for my 2017 Honda Pilot. Fit perfectly with no alterations. All I had to do was lower the spare tire a bit.

Very easy to install and it did not require me to remove the spare tire even though the instructions say to. The hitch looks great because it doesn't look like an aftermarket product. Very hidden in the view from the rear of the car and the quality looks top notch. I'm using it mostly for bike racks but should I need electrical I will definately order that as well from you. 228922


Comments
All is well and it works great. Had electrical hooked up by [...] last month to tow a trailer and it worked great. I use it mainly for hauling my bikes around with a bike rack so it was a good test to haul wood with a 16 foot trailer as well.

This is my second hitch from etrailer. The first one was for my 2010 Acura MDX and now this one is for my 2018 Acura MDX. My use for this hitch is to attach my bike rack. I am pleased with the quality of the hitch and the amount of money I saved by not getting one from the dealer. I would admit, I like the dealer integrated looks but not for the amount of money they want for it. On both occasions, I had Uhaul installed it for me. Today's installation charge was $35 NYC area. If I had tools and a way to raise my car up a little bit, I could have done this myself. It's very quick and simple installation process watch the video.

I'm glad I found this site! Just purchased a 2016 Honda Pilot Elite and the dealer wanted $1465.00 to install a trailer hitch. He blamed the high price on the "4" hours of installation and new wiring. For less than $200 and an easy to follow installation video, I installed it myself in less than 30 minutes. Didn't need to drop the spare either...fit right into place! Great sales recommendations and follow up from the etrailer staff. This company knows how to run a business and keep a customer satisfied. 5 stars out of 5 stars. 238513

Bought a Hitch & Light Kit for my 2017 Honda Pilot. The deals wanted $1400.00 installed. Your videos honestly tell you how hard it may be to install and how to do it so I put money back in my own pocket instead of a greedy dealers! I found you'll because my brother Harley F. Illes, Belleview, Fl. bought one very recently for his spouses 2016 Dodge Durango and highly recommended you'll. I seldom appreciate the customer service at the levl you'll provided because to many companies anymore it's just lip service. Thank you'll for remembering that you can make a pretty good living providing service with excellence in mind. People this is a sincere review for you to consider. I don't work for this company and other than this purchase I didn't know them. 385195

Ordered Draw Tite hitch #75225 Saturday afternoon, hitch delivered Wednesday. Checked dimensions on hitch bolt holes and it was a perfect match for the weld nuts on our 2017 Pilot. Cut out large piece of cardboard from shipping box so cardboard 1-2 ft larger than hitch in length/width. Removed spare tire and placed cardboard on concrete behind vehicle. Put 3 fully collapsed jack stands with rubber pads on cardboard then put hitch on jack stands (one each side of hitch, one in rear by receiver) and slid cardboard under vehicle. Sequentially slowly raised jacks and adjusted cardboard so that bolt holes in hitch lined up with and were just below the weld nuts in vehicle. Inserted 2 bolts on each side of hitch. Only put bolts in 2-3 turns initially so that could adjust position of hitch. Lowered jack stands, removed jack stands and cardboard and inserted remaining 2 bolts. Vehicle is brand new so no need to clean threads on weld nuts. Adjusted hitch into final position then tightened bolts with half inch ratchet followed by half inch breaker bar. Hardest part of installation was getting torque on bolts. Lying on my back on a creeper I couldn't get enough leverage on the torque wrench so I used a 3 ft. length of pvc pipe over the torque wrench to gain additional leverage. It probably took 45 min to get the correct torque on the bolts and this includes finding and cutting the pvc pipe. Estimate it took approximately 2 hours for the whole installation and this includes moving vehicles around in the driveway, tool collection and replacement and spare tire removal and replacement. The installation was done single handed with the vehicle on a concrete driveway and I'm 70 yrs. old. The hitch fits perfectly and looks great on the Pilot. I like that this hitch comes with a mounting plate for the trailer wiring connector. I plan to bolt a 4 flat connector mounting bracket #118144 to the hitch plate to hold the 4 flat plug. The hitch will be used to tow a flat bed utility trailer and a waverunner. I like ordering from etrailer because they have very good products, great customer support and great installation videos. I am a repeat customer many times over and have been purchasing from them for almost 15 years. 366155

Bought this for my 2017 Honda Pilot. Worked perfectly and I installed in myself in under 2 hours. The hardest part was trying to hold it up to get the first bolt in as it is rather heavy (which is good since it will be towing stuff!). Everything fit well and I will only have to stop by a mechanic somewhere to get the bottom bolts properly torqued. I do have a torque wrench, but it only goes up to 80 Ft/lbs. This requires substantially more. Overall a great product and with the video install guides, I will continue to purchase from etrailer. 403578

Hitch was well made and easy to install. Just what I was looking for. etrailer was great at getting it to me quickly. I also purchased a hitch wiring set be Tekonsha. It was designed to work with my 2018 Honda Pilot. I followed the instructions but had no power at the hitch connector. The people at e trailer where great at helping me get things working. Turns out the newer Pilots are missing a couple of required fuses. Once they were installed it worked perfectly. I was very pleased with etrailer. Great products and support. 573113

Easy bolt on! Let spare down a little to give wiggle room to line up bolts - nuts are pre placed by Honda. The hardest part was torquing the bolts to specs listed. I bought this hitch specifically for the wiring mount pad - great for 7 wire w/brakes. Put it all in, included the brake control in about an hour and a half. Pulls a 3500# trailer like a champ! 400047

Received the trailer hitch as scheduled. Installed it on my 2014 Acura MDX without any assistance; and without having to jack the car up. Having two people to install would have been a little easier ... even at that it was only a 20 - 25 minute install. Fits perfectly and the hitch is exactly what I ordered. Appreciate the easy tracking system too. 299593

The Hitch was exactly as advertised and literally took 30 minutes to install. My steps were a little different than the instructions: I cleaned each pre-tapped hole on the vehicle using corrosion prevention spray and a used tooth brush. I slid the bar under the SUV using the box as a support to prevent scratches, lifted one end and supported using jackstand and then the other end. I used threadlocker on each bolt, and hand-tightened three bolts on one side, then the other. Using a 7/8 socket, tightened each bolt a little bit at a time to prevent seizing. Some seizing did happen on one of the bolts as the bolt was pushing the support plate against the frame of the car; lots of torque and a few rotations at a time will tighten the gap. 224631

Dealer wanted $800+ for the hitch and wiring and "we'll order it and you can come back in a week or so for a two hour appointment." I ordered the hitch and it came 2 days later, then I installed the hitch by myself in about 30 minutes using a couple of jackstands to hold it in position before I bolted it in place. Note: I have installed hitches before on several vehicles - the 2016 Pilot hitch install is the easiest one I have ever done. (Installing the wiring kit was a bit awkward, but not too bad.) 305908

Did you have to remove the spare tire to do the installation?

The instructions specify to remove the spare for installation and re-install afterward. Some folks find it's easier to lower it but not take it all the way off, but when we installed the hitch in our shops, we found there was no need to remove the spare. Check out the video.

Saved $200 by doing this myself. I was a little concerned about the negative feedback about the shipping boxes being destroy upon delivery. But as you can see, it came intact and was delivered promptly to my front door. This installation was very easy. I watched the video for both the trailer hitch and wiring harness and it was exactly like the video indicated. I will tell you on the wiring harness you do not have to pull the panel back. Just get a mirror and locate the connector behind the panel and you can pull it down to the opening. 465223

Hitch was well packaged. The box arrived with some tears but no damage, nicks or scrapes to the hitch. My car is not garaged so there was a good amount of rust buildup in the factory drilled bolt holes. The Magic to get all that gunk out was WD-40 rust release penetrate spray and a 1/2” wire fitting brush hardware stores have them in the plumbing section Once rust was cleaned out installation took about 25 minutes. I installed the hitch solo. Getting the specified torque on the bolts was a workout ! I used 2 Eddie Bauer hanging dome lights to I’ve me great visibility workkng. They are my go to lights. About 10 bucks a piece on-line. 469552

Drawtite 75225 fit my 2018 Honda Pilot perfectly. Use a floor jack to lift the hitch into place enough to get bolts started. Pneumatic impact wrench highly recommended - especially with clogged bolt holes in the frame. Two people required for final bolt torquing - use a long pipe to extend torque wrench effort arm. E-Trailer videos were an invaluable help, especially the wiring - spot on. Saved more than half the cost by installing myself versus well-known self-hauling company. Also purchased 18144 wiring bracket (bolted to hitch with no mods) and 118760 wiring harness. Extremely satisfied with purchase and outcome of installation. 745943

  • Recommended Alternative to OEM Trailer Hitch for 2019 Honda Pilot
    The factory hitch for the 2019 Honda Pilot installs behind the bumper, with the receiver tube actually passing through the fascia under the bumper, while the closest aftermarket installation we offer to that would be the Draw-Tite # 75225 which would have the receiver tube sitting right against the underside of the bumper fascia as shown in the photo. From online photos I've seen, it looks like the OEM hitch would use a different bumper fascia. While the OEM hitch is certainly the cleanest...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2017 Honda Pilot
    Starting with the trailer hitch, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75225 for your 2017 Honda Pilot. This hitch is custom-fit for your vehicle and will provide a slightly better ground clearance measurement than the compatible Curt alternative. This has a 900 pound tongue weight and 6,000 pound towing weight capacity. Because the hitch will use existing holes in the vehicle frame, no drilling is required during installation. This hitch will fit with the mini and...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for 2018 Honda Pilot

  • Which Trailer Hitch has the Best Ground Clearance for a 2016 Honda Pilot
    Between the hitches for the 2016 Honda Pilot Curt hitch # C13146 is going to offer more ground clearance compared to Draw-Tite hitch # 75225. This is because on the Draw-Tite hitch the safety chain loops are below the receiver. They stick down about another 1-1/2 inches from the bottom of the receiver. The Curt hitch measures approximately 12-1/4 inches from the ground to the bottom of the receiver. It measures 14-1/2 inches to the top of the receiver opening. I included a picture showing...

  • Is The Hands Free Liftgate Sensor Affected With the Draw-Tite Hitch on a 2019 Honda Pilot
    The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75225 while installed on your 2019 Honda Pilot WILL NOT negate the use of your hands free liftgate sensor. However, it will require that you place your foot on either side of the receiver tube opening in order to activate it which is not much of an issue at all for most. The trailer hitch manufacturers such as Draw-Tite have begun to ever so slightly modify the trailer hitch designs in order to work with the hands free liftgate feature...

  • Is a Supplemental Transmission Cooler Required to Tow 1,200 Pound Trailer with 2016 Honda Pilot
    I checked with the 2016 Honda Pilot owner's manual and found the following information regarding transmission coolers: An additional ATF (automatic transmission fluid) cooler is required to keep the transmission from overheating when towing more than 3,500 lbs (1,588 kg). So if the trailer is less than 1,200 you would not have to have a transmission cooler. But I did also find this information in the manual: Trailer brakes are recommended for any trailer with a total weight of 1,000...

    Yes, Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75225 will fit your 2017 Honda Pilot. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you.

It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If the ball mount kit does not have the right rise or drop to tow the...

    If you check out the picture I attached you will see the profile of a 2017 Honda Pilot with the Draw Tite hitch part # 75225 installed on it. A ball mount could pretty easily fit the hitch and clear the bumper. The ball mounts that come with the part # 989900 would easily fit the hitch and not interfere with the bumper. The trailer wiring part # C56291 would also be a confirmed fit too. I attached an install video for this kit and the hitch for you to check out as well.

    The Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Trailer Hitch # 75225 that you referenced will fit without issue with 18 inch or smaller spare tires under the Honda Pilot so your wife's T165/80D17 spare won't be a problem at all. It will need to be lowered during the install process but it can be re-mounted once the hitch is in place. I have attached an installation video that you can also use for reference.

  • 2-Inch Trailer Hitch Fits for 2017 Acura MDX Hybrid
    I checked with my technical contacts at both Curt and Draw-Tite about the fit of their hitches, parts # 75225 and # C13146, on your 2017 Acura MDX Hybrid. Both companies confirmed that there are no fit issues reported for their hitches on your 2017 MDX Hybrid. Since both offer identical capacities and installation I suggest the lower-priced Draw-Tite 2-inch hitch # 75225. Please note that only the 18-inch spare tire will fit once the hitch is installed but not the larger optional tire sizes.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2017 Toyota Sequoia
    A Honda Pilot cannot tow that much, so the 2017 Toyota Sequoia is your better option. The exact amount it can tow depends on the Gross Combination Weight Rating, which requires you knowing the vehicle's weight, occupant weight and cargo weight, but depending on the Sequoi's model it has a GCWR of between 13,400 lbs and 13,600 lbs so a 5,000 lb camper should not be an issue. You will need Draw-Tite hitch # 75649, which has a 600 lb tongue weight capacity and 6,000 lb towing capacity....
