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. The one-on-one, personal service you'll receive comes straight from an expert in the towing and automotive field. We've installed it, we've wired it and we've towed with it, so whatever your question, we can answer it.

Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Installation - 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

Today on our 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport, we're going to be installing Draw-Tite's Class III 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 75229. And this is what our hitch is going to look like when it's installed. The cross tube's going to be hidden behind our paneling, but you will be able to see the receiver sticking out the back. It's a Class III 2" by 2" receiver so it's going to be great for all your towing needs from hauling trailers to bike racks and cargo carriers. It uses a 5/8" hitch pin and clip. Now one doesn't come included with the kit, but you can pick one up here at etrilaer.com using part number PC3.The small hole located just to the rear of the hitch pin hole allows the use a a J-pin.

The J-pin acts as an anti-rattle device, so when it's inserted, the J portion will go in the small hole and press against whatever's in the receiver keeping it tight and rattle free. It features slanted plate style safety chain loops with a fairly large opening so it should accommodate most safety chains. It features an 800 pound tongue weight, that's the force going on down on top of the receiver., and an 8,000 pound gross towing capacity, and that's how much you can pull behind it.You do want to verify in your vehicle's owner's manual so you're not exceeding its towing capacities. And now I've got some measurements for you to help you when deciding on accessories. From the ground to the top inside edge of the receiver tube, it measures about 13".

This is important when determining if you need a drop rise or raise shank on any of your accessories. And from the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the rear bumper, it measures about 4-1/2". This is important when determining if any of your folding accessories can be placed in the upright storage position without contact with the bumper.We'll begin our installation here at the back of the vehicle by removing our appearance panel here. You'll use a flat blade screwdriver to remove the pins on each side. We'll do that on that other side as well.

Now we'll just remove the panel and set it aside. Behind the panel you'll find a screw. We'll need to remove that as well as the one in the position on the opposite side. Then towards the center underneath the vehicle you'll find two bolts we need to remove with a 10mm socket. We can now remove our panel by pulling it down and sliding it out.

We'll now clean out our factory weld holes using some spray lubricant and a bristle brush. That'll just make it easier to install the hardware. There's also two more further up.Then prepare your bolts. You'll have two bolts and you're going to slide conical tooth washers on with the teeth facing away from the head of the bolt. These are going to be the rearmost bolts. Then you'll prepare two bolts with a lock washer followed by a flat washer. These are going to be the two bolts closest to the front of the vehicle. And now with an extra set of hands we're going to lift our hitch to position. You want to make sure you go up over the plastic panel. Pull it down if you need to and slide it towards the front. We're going to lift our hitch up from the bottom working around the exhaust and slide it up into place.We'll then take the long bolt, slide a flat washer on it, we'll slide the bolt through the rear bumper through the hole in the top bracket of our hitch, and then that'll have it hang into place. We'll then take the flange nut in the kit and thread it onto the bolt we just slid through. This'll help hold our hitch into place making it easier to install the rest of our hardware. We'll not tighten down all of our hardware using an 18mm socket. We'll then tighten down our long bolt using a 3/4" socket and wrench. You can then go back and torque all of your hardware to the specifications found in your instructions.Now that our hitch is all torqued down, we'll need to trim our paneling to make our hitch fit through. Next we'll use our cut off wheel to trim off the openings we'll need to access our hitch when we reinstall the paneling. I've gone ahead and marked it out here. You can find the appropriate cutting locations in your instructions. And now you're going to clean up your rough edges using a file. Now we can reinstall our panels. Then we can put our appearance panel back up and we're ready to hit the road. And that completes our installation of Draw-Tite's Class III 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver on our 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport.

Since my car is the 2018 Model, the installation instruction is not complete correct for my car. The small cut off hole requires at two locations two center edges of panel. 613137

I ordered the hitch and it was delivered the next day on Friday. My wife and had it installed on Saturday. It is very well made (and very heavy for 2 60+ people to install under the car). At first we were skeptical that it would clear the muffler, gas tank, etc., but with a little work it went in fine. The only issue was I had to do a bit more trimming on the plastic cover than was shown in the instructions, but with the Dremel this wasn't a problem. It took us about 2 hours. I would highly recommend Etrailor and their products. 581928

I purchased a Draw-Tite trailer hitch for my Range Rover Sport. Melinda helped me with my order and got it shipped out the next day. I installed it myself using the installation guide they provided. It took about 50 minutes for the hitch install. I spent another 15 minutes to trim the RR cover for an exact fit and it looks great. The price was the best I could find. I highly recommend this seller and product, and will purchase again in the future. 480803

NEWS FLASH!!! This fits 2019 Range Rover Sport too! Its unfortunate etrailer and manufacturer are unaware of this ever so important info. Forgive the dirt in the photos. This is a 2019, had a 2016 and has same set up. Best regards, Matt 613910


Comments

At one time, vehicle manufacturers were pretty good about lending vehicles to the hitch and aftermarket wiring companies. Now, especially with upscale brands like BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Range Rover and the like, the vehicle manufacturers arent lending out vehicles like they used to which makes it difficult for the aftermarket suppliers to determine product fits in a timely manner.

Great hitch that was incredibly easy to install. The price was much more appealing than the $1400 worth of parts from the dealer. Now I can haul all our stuff and our dogs on family trips. Looking forward to using it for my bike rack as well. 612014

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Fit for a 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
  • We carry two trailer hitch receivers that fit your 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport; the Draw-Tite # 75229 and the Curt # C13243. Between the two I recommend the Draw-Tite because Curt requires a strap to be used if you're ever using the hitch for a bike rack or cargo carrier. Since you're going to be towing this may not matter to you. In which case it's pretty much a toss up because both hitches are very similar and both high quality. I've linked the install details to both of them...

  • How to Mount 7-Way Connector on a 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport with 2" Trailer Hitch
  • Thank you for the purchase of the Draw-Tite # 75229 trailer hitch and T-One # 118275 for your 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport! We have exactly what you need to mount the 7-Way connector without having to modify anything. If you use the Easy Mount Bracket # C58000 you can secure the 7-Way to the 2" receiver of your trailer hitch (see attached picture). I have attached a sample installation video of this being installed on a 2005 Tucson for you to reference.

  • Comparing Draw Tite and Curt Hitch for 2016 Range Rover Sport Dynamic
  • For your 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport we have the Draw Tite hitch part # 75229 and we have the Curt hitch part # C13243 both as a confirmed fit. They are both similar hitches in many ways but I'd go with the Draw Tite as it will allow your full sized spare to be stored underneath your vehicle. The Curt will not allow you to store a full sized spare. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well. For trailer wiring you'd then want the part # C56293 which...

  • Recommendation For Mounting Wire Harness With Connector For 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
  • It sounds like you already have a hitch like the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Hitch, Item # 75229, and a vehicle wiring harness like The Tekonsha T-One Wiring Harness, Item # 118681. Going with this assumption, the wiring harness will plug into your OEM package behind your rear bumper. You will have to remove an access cover to get access and you can either store the connector side beneath your hitch under your 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport or you can mount it. To mount the connector,...

  • Is Fascia Trimmed When Installing Trailer Hitch On 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
  • When installing the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch, part # 75229 on your 2016 Range Rover Sport, the bottom underbody appearance panel needs to be trimmed. I have attached a photo from the installation instructions that shows where the trimming must be done. No mention is made of the fascia being trimmed in the instructions.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Fit for a 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
  • We have both products you are looking for. For a trailer hitch for your 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport you would want the part # 75229 which is a confirmed fit and then for trailer wiring part # C56293. There would be no drilling for installation of the hitch but there will be some trimming of an underbody panel on the vehicle. I attached a picture that shows where it would get trimmed.

  • Does Trailer Hitch for 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Allow Use of Full Size Spare Storage
  • I checked with Draw Tite about their part # 75229 which is a fit for your 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport and with Curt about the # C13243 and both hitches do not interfere with spare tires at all. So they will both install and allow access to full sized spares once installed.

  • Trailer Hitch for 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport to Open Rear Hatch with Tilting Bike Rack
  • Take a look at the picture I have included showing the location of a hitch installed on a 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport. We don't have an exact measurement but you can see the face of the receiver is about flush with the rear bumper and the pin hole is back only another couple of inches. But if you go with Curt hitch # C13243 then Curt also says you have to use stabilization strap # 18050 when using this hitch for any non-trailer load (such as a bike rack or cargo carrier) per their...

  • Why Don't Trailer Hitch Installs Require Loc-Tite
  • Hitch hardware does not require Loc-Tite or any other thread lockers. Reason being the bolts are torque-to-yield bolts which means they stretch slightly as they tighten which works as a thread locker. This means that the hardware is one-time-use too.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
  • There is absolutely a trailer hitch for your 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport that will save you copious amounts of money compared to the dealer. I highly recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75229 because of its bolt-on installation that does not require any drilling into your Range Rover's frame to install and because of Draw-Tite's longstanding reputation of making very high-quality trailer hitches. I have added a link to a video install of this hitch for you to check out as well.

  • Does Fasica of 2014 Range Rover Sport Have to be Trimmed to Install Trailer Hitch
  • To install the Draw Tite hitch part # 75229 on your 2014 Range Rover Sport you have to trim the rear fascia to allow the hitch to install properly. I attached a picture that shows how it will be trimmed. The lower fascia does not have to be removed when towing though.

  • Comparing Curt and Draw Tite Hitch for 2016 Range Rover Sport
  • The Draw Tite hitch part # 75229 and the Curt hitch part # C13243 that you referenced are very similar in design. The big differences are that the Curt is made in the USA and the Draw Tite does not have the recommendation to use a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack. Reese actually was made by same company as Draw Tite, so if you were wanting a Reese hitch the Draw Tite basically is that.

  • Fit and Compatibility of Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch # 87693 on a 2015 Range Rover Sport
  • The decorative cover or also known as the fascia will cover a portion of the Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75229, but not completely. I have linked a few photos to give you a better idea of how much will be covered. I have also liked some 2 inch Class III bike rack and cargo carrier accessories for your hitch to this page for your convenience.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
  • I have a bike rack solution that would work great on your 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport, but there are no trunk racks confirmed as a fit for your vehicle. Instead you would want to go with a hitch and hitch bike rack. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Roadway 2 part # TH912XTR. We asked our demo and install guys to name their favorite, most easy-to-use bike racks and this one showed up in nearly everyone's top three. Check...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport to Open Rear Hatch With Bike Rack
  • The best trailer hitch for your 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport that is going to allow you to open your rear hatch with a tilting bike rack is the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75229. As you can see by the accompanying photo, this Class III 2" trailer hitch sits well below the hatch opening of your '18 Range Rover Sport so a tilting bike rack such as the Saris SuperClamp EX 2 Bike Platform Rack # SA4025F will allow you to open your hatch when it is tilted.
