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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2018 Toyota Sienna - Draw-Tite

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Toyota Sienna, we're going be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Draw-Tite Class III custom fit trailer hitch receiver, part number 75237. So here's what our hitch is gonna look like on our Sienna. The crosstube is gonna sit below our bumper, but the main thing we're gonna see is the receiver tube sticking out. It's gonna offer us a two-inch by two-inch opening, which is gonna be great for a wide variety of accessories like ball mounts, bike racks, or even cargo carriers.The way we're gonna mount all of our accessories is through the forward hole here. We're just gonna accept a standard five ace pin and clip. Now, those aren't included in our kit, but you can pick them up here at etrailer.com.

Now that secondary hole towards the back of the receiver tube is gonna be used exclusively for the J-pin stabilization device. Speaker 1: Now, the way that's gonna work is the threaded section is gonna go into the pin hole and come out the other side, and then that J-hook is gonna go into that secondary hole and apply pressure to our accessory using a jam nut. And it's gonna keep down that rattle and play from the accessory moving around on the inside of our receiver tube, and it's also a locking device. So we're also gonna be able to make sure our accessories are nice and secure in the hitch.The safety chain connection points are gonna be a plate style, and we're gonna have plenty of room to get most size hooks on or off. We do have some smaller hooks.

Keep in mind that the flange on the outside is a little bit larger, so you may want to come straight in to connect those. And you'll notice that the opening is gonna be slightly offset from the hitch pin hole, which is gonna make it a lot easier to get those hooks in place without worrying about interference with a pin and clip or a locking device. Speaker 1: Off the left side or the driver's side of the receiver tube, we're gonna have this plate welded onto the crosstube here where we can mount any of our electrical accessories like a four pole flat or a seven way. That way our connector will be ready for us when we're ready to tow. As far as weight capacity goes, our hitch is gonna have a 675 pound tongue weight, which is the maximum downward force at the receiver tube.

It's also gonna have a 4,500 pound gross trailer weight rating, which is the amount it can pull with the trailer and everything we have loaded on it.Now, it's also rated for use with weight distribution systems, which is gonna be a separate component that we're gonna mount onto our trailer. That's gonna keep the tongue weight the same, but it's gonna bump our gross trailer weight rating up to 5,000 pounds. Speaker 1: And with all those numbers in mind, I always recommend that you double check your Sienna's owner's manual and never exceed the manufacturer's recommended weight. I'd like to give you a few measurements, and these are gonna help you out when deciding for accessories for your new hitch, such as a ball mount, a bike rack, or a cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper, it's gonna be right about six and a half inches.

That measurement is gonna come in handy when you're looking at folding accessories. Make sure you have adequate clearance so that it doesn't come in contact with the rear bumper. From the ground to the inside top edge of the receiver tube opening, it's right about 11 and a half inches. With that measurement, I would definitely recommend a raised shank on a bike rack or a cargo carrier to give you that added ground clearance. But that measurement also is gonna come in handy to find the appropriate riser drop for a ball mount to match up to your trailer.Now that we've seen what our hitch looks like and gone over some of the features, let's show you how to get it installed. To begin our installation, we're gonna have to remove this underbody trim panel. Now, along the outside edge here, we're gonna have several bolts that are holding it in, so we're gonna want to grab a 10 millimeter socket and pull those out Speaker 1: Towards the front of our van, we're gonna have pushpins going along the edge, again. So we're just gonna take a flathead screwdriver, and you notice that it has a little white section in the middle. We're gonna want to come underneath the pushpin and pop that white center section out. That'll take some of the tension off of the clip, and we come underneath the outer portion and pull the rest of it out. So we're gonna want to pull all of them out going along the edge on this panel.Now, towards the outer edge, we're also gonna have this plastic clip here. We're just gonna push up on the panel. We can actually unthread these by hand, just gonna loosely thread in this little plastic retainer underneath. So if you can, you're gonna want to try to unthread it by pulling down on that at the same time because if we push up too much on that pushpin and it'll just lock it back in place. Also helps if you can kind of get your hand under there, and grab yourself a large Philips screwdriver, and just begin to loosen it up while you're still pulling down. It'll unlock, and we're gonna have a total of four of them, one on each side of our panel, and then two at the very back of our panel. Speaker 1: The we pull the panel down, and we'll set it aside. With the panel out of the way, we come to right where our tailpipe is right behind our passenger rear tire. We're gonna have our exhaust hanger here. Now, I'm gonna to spray a little bit of spray lubricant on the hanger. This is gonna make it easier because our goal here is to slide this rubber isolator off of the hanger, so that we can have our exhaust hang down a little bit. Now, it's a good idea to go ahead and get a strap of some kind. That way the exhaust doesn't come down too far. We just want to find a solid point to secure it to, and we can always adjust the strap to let it down as much as we need to.So I'm just gonna take a pry bar, and use the hanger to pray against and just push that rubber isolator back until I can get it off that post. Speaker 1: If you find that you don't have enough room to work with, we can pull down on the tailpipe to give us a little bit more. But you can also come back to where our muffler is in front of our rear tires, and we're gonna have two more hangers there that are holding it in place. Again, you just want to make sure you have that strap up so the exhaust doesn't hang down too far. But I think we'll have plenty of room without removing these hangers.So now on east side of our frame, we're gonna have these little stickers and plugs that are on the bottom. We're gonna want to pull all those out, and just take a flathead screwdriver, a utility knife, just about anything really just to start scraping those off. We're gonna peel the whole sticker off, and then I'll expose the weld nut inside the frame. So we'll go ahead and pull all the stickers off on both sides of our frame. Speaker 1: Now, even though the weld nuts we're covered up with stickers, there shouldn't be any rust or debris in there. But it's not a bad idea to take one of the bolts in our kit, and we're gonna make sure that we can easily thread them in by hand. And we're not gonna have any problems when we go to put our hitch up. I just want to run it in, a few threads by hand, and do that for all the weld nuts in the frame. And since it'll be easier to see, we'll go ahead and go over the combination of hardware that we're gonna be using.So we're gonna have our hex bolts, followed by a lock washer, followed by a flat Washer, and that's gonna be going into the three weld nuts on each side of the frame. Now with an extra set of hands, we're gonna lift our hitch, and we're just gonna go over the exhaust. We're gonna lift it up, we're gonna line up the holes with the weld nuts in the frame, and we're gonna make sure we can get at least one bolt in on each side. We don't have to worry about the hitch falling down, and it can support itself. With all the bolts loosely in place, I'm just gonna kind of push my exhaust to the side, and come back with a 19 millimeter socket and snug up all the hardware. Speaker 1: So now I'm gonna come back with that same 19 millimeter socket and a torque wrench, and I'm gonna torque all my hardware down to the specified amount in the instructions. You just want to make sure you repeat that for all the remaining hardware. Now, we can get ready to put our exhaust back up, so let's take a little bit more spray lubricant and spray that rubber isolator down just make it a little bit easier to get it back on the hanger.So we just kind of push back on that rubber isolator. Pull the exhaust out of the way so it kind of clears it. You should be able to just lift up with a little bit of prying, and slide it back into place. Now, if you're having trouble, you can get a small screwdriver and put it into the isolator to help guide everything in. Then we can loosen and remove the strap we had supporting the exhaust.For our underbody trim panel, we can reinstall it. However, we are gonna have to trim it in order to get back in place. And the rough area that we're gonna be trimming, if we come to the outer mounting hole, we come straight down right to this ridge and go straight across and up to this other mounting hole, and this entire back panel will be removed. So per the request of the customer, we're gonna go ahead and leave this panel off. That way we don't have all of this access that we need to cut off anyway. And that'll finish up your look at the Draw-Tite Class III custom fit trailer hitch receiver, part number 75237, on our 2018 Toyota Sienna.

Although the hitch is very sturdy, one of the holes did not line up with the hole in my Toyota Sienna. Luckily I do not put any heavy loads on the hitch so it shouldn't be a problem. Also, the hitch sits a little low on the car, it has scraped the ground on steep inclines. 663415


Comments
When a trailer hitch is assembled, the manufacturers use a softer type of steel in the hitch side plates as opposed to the harder steel used in the crossbar and receiver tube. This allows the hitch to flex along with the vehicle to a certain degree. Unfortunately, this flexibility can also allow the hitch to get slightly bent out of position during shipping and handling. The good news is that this is very easy to remedy if you know a few strategies that are shown in the article Ive linked. You will want to get the hitch moved back into the correct position, because unless all the mounting locations are used, the hitch will have a limited weight capacity which could be dangerous.

Haven't been able to finish the install yet. Had high hopes, given etrailer's great reputation. Watched the installation video numerous times before and after ordering. Unfortunately, the mounting brackets appear to have been bent towards each other. I tried bolting in one side and pushing the other side back towards the bumper, then did the same to the other side. Got some bolts started, but at least one was being pushed off slightly by the hitch (rear-most on driver's side) and began cross-threading or crushing the threads on the weldnut. Just pulled the whole thing back off and ordered a thread chaser that I hope helps clean up the weldnut so I can try again. Hitch seems to be real close, and the included instructions clearly indicated 2014 Sienna. Didn't see any obvious damage, but getting those brackets up past the buckets for the hiedaway third row was challenging, and even with the slotted bolt holes it is clear that the brackets were out of parallel ( I hope that's all it was). We'll see if I can get it to fit, I think I was close but I hate cross-threading, I really don't want to have to force it. 699291


Comments
The issue you are describing is a classic example of a flexed hitch. The hitch manufacturers do intended for the hitches to have a little flex to them, and during the shipping process it is not uncommon for the hitches or mounting flanges to get flexed or bent slightly out of alignment. What you have done so far bolting one side up to try to bend the other side is the first step that we do recommend for our customers to rectify the problem. We do have a help article that illustrated how to fix the flexed hitch. I have interluded that link below for your reference. Once you get your tap and get the weld nuts back in proper working order hopefully you can get everything lined up and installed.

Quick Install with a floor jack 1) Read the instruction 3 times. 2) Jack up the van into the center rear of jack stand holder(read owner manual). 3) Take out all the plastic buttons and 4 plastic screws. 4) Unplug plastic bolt covers; and put some put some grease or lubricant over the bolt threads. 5) Land both sides of the hitch on the car body frame at the same time jack the hitch up slowly. 6) hand tight each of the bolts first; and alternately tighten it incrementally on each side. 3718

Overall the product is very good and I have pulled a lot with it, boats, trailers etc. Installation was a little more challenging than the video indicates but I had installed my last one so I was more prepared. That one went in much easier; One of the holes on this hitch used to fasten to the frame did not line up with the manufacture holes on the vehicle so this was a bit of a challenge and it was a very snug fit, i.e. hammer or rubber mallet required. The video is great but unless you have a mechanics garage with a lift, you need to be able to jack up the vehicle pretty high and place securely on Jack stands to work on this and allow enough room to get under and install the hitch. Could also use a longer wire to run to the battery. 607147

It is a great accessory for my 2014 Toyota sienna xle.Good price and installs very easily with 3 ,19mm bolts in each side.Just grease up the rubber mount before unhinging the exhaust muffler and liquid wrench the 6 hole for the nuts if you are not as lucky as I was and had some type of weatherproof tape covering them so they weren't corroded.You only need to make small alterations to the underplastic to get the tow hitch through and reattach after you make your cuts with a box cutter.I used boards to hold the hitch in place while installing bolts.This product fits perfect,looks great,seems very durable and good quality for the money.Very easy to Install.It took me 60 mins in a rocky uneven driveway with no jack and most of that time was removing,cutting,reinstalling the plastic splash gaurd. 663824

Couple of things. 1) The shipping box was full of holes by the time it showed up at my house. A few minor scratches here and there but no big deal... except I wondered what I would do if I had to return the hitch for some reason. Luckily, I didn't have to return it. 2) I installed it on a 2014 Toyota Sienna. One word of caution, the under carriage appearance panel that you have to remove in order to install the hitch has been modified by Toyota for 2014. The under panel has an inch wide convex hump that runs across the entire length right above where the cross bar of the hitch goes. Therefore, if you choose to re-install the under panel along with the hitch, as I did, the under panel will press down against the hitch and you will have to made some adjustments as you tighten the screws of the hitch as well as the under panel. I am attaching a couple of picks that show how the under panel is now pushed in. 141578

I purchased this hitch in order to accommodate a new bike rack for my 2011 Toyota Sienna, AWD. I found it to be sturdy, and well-constructed, and it arrived in excellent condition. For the installation, I used a floor jack to raise the passenger side of the van in order to more easily access the tailpipe bracket. The only thing that slowed me down was that I had to borrow a 10" extension for my 1/2" torque wrench to reach the installation bolts. I left the trim piece off altogether; you can't see it either way, and where I live it only serves as a repository for mud. Took the family out on a nice bike ride yesterday; worked like a champ! 385932

Much of the process is great--the videos are very informative and helpful, and I was able to easily pick out a trailer for my Sienna. But when it arrived, I found as I tried to wrangle it onto my car that it was too small. No matter how I tried, I could not get it to fit into the space that it should have. So I went back to the reviews and then I found several that mentioned the same problem--the arms were just too close together. Emboldened by these reviews, I pulled out my hammer (and a block of wood), and I pounded on the arms for a while, and then tried again. And then it fit! Once I was able to get it into place, it was easy to screw in, and I have used it successfully since. It's very low (but the videos warn of you this) and it works quite well with the bike rack I have (as long as I avoid any major speed bumps!). So in the end, I'm happy with the hitch, but I certainly didn't like that it was actually too small at first, and that I had to do some major banging to get it to fit. 546392


Comments
The mounting flanges on a trailer hitch are designed for straight line strength, not lateral strength. The flanges are actually designed to have some give in them, so they can flex with the vehicle. Because of this, if they get flexed during shipping, they can be easily manipluated back into place. As long as the powder coat didnt crack and there arent any cracks in the mounting flange itself, the hitch will work perfectly after being bent back into place. Ill link you to a help article that shows a few different methods of manipulating the hitch back into place.

The Draw-Tite Max (#75237) was a perfect fit for my 05 Sienna CE!! Kudos to Etrailer (again!) for giving us a Great/Quality product, at a Great VALUE . . and, Free Shipping to boot !! Saved hundreds on this by buying & installing myself, compared to Toyota quote for same work! I read many of the etrailer customer reviews on this before purchasing, & many of the comments were extremely helpful in aiding with installation . . thanks everyone for your input & help!! On an older vehicle like mine, I would have NEVER gotten the bolts in, without first "chasing" &/or cleaning them out with a thread restorer (as suggested in the reviews!) . . I had never used one, but it worked like a champ! I was looking to purchase one, stopped by my local [retailer] Automotive store . . they considered this a "specialty tool" so were willing to "loan" it to me for Free! (if I put down a fully-refundable Deposit) . . so, their loan saved me even more! . . . it took me about 1.5 hours to fully clean out the threads . . BUT, it was worth it! . . & as someone else suggested in their Review "if you can't hand-thread the mounting bolts into your frame . . you need to keep cleaning them with the thread chaser/restorer"!! . . good advice! Install is a snap, once the threads are cleaned properly. And, it DID take some serious tugging, to get the proper torque on the bolts [specs] . . need to use a torque wrench to be sure. Could not be happier with this purchase! Have used etrailer several times previously, & will certainly continue! . . and, tell others about my positive experiences!! 340900

Being older and somewhat mechanical, I found the installation videos for both the hitch and electric to be incrediblely easy. Clearly the hitch was of the highest quality, and the electrical connectors very well matched to my Sienna. Further, the connection process and routing instructions via the video were almost brainless. Some mechanical skills are warranted, but the accessibility of information from the video made the installation of this quality product seamless and effortless. I failed to mention the delivery was within 2-3 days! There is no question etrailer has their business and business model well in hand. Kudos to an outstanding product and company. 470754

Perfect to install. Videos were spectacular! Functions perfectly towing my very small antique car. Sadly paint is chipping off hitch already...

Rust will sometimes form from moisture in the air and salt on the roads. If rust has started to form you can take fine sandpaper and sand it off as much as possible then cover that spot with a rustoleum type of paint. It is a good idea to check over the hitch for any scratches or deep gauges and paint over these areas to prevent future rust issues. I have attached a help article about preventing rust.

The trailer hitch is performing well. One side was bent in and my husband considered returning it but then decided to try and fix the problem. He used a tree for leverage and successfully pulled the end out to then fit onto the van. Just thought we'd mention this so you could avoid this problem with future shipments. 636033

Very easy to install. I have a 2011 Sienna, that I bought used. It took about an hour doing it myself. You have to remove an appearance panel that extends from the rear wheels to the bumper first, and if you want to re install the trimmed piece which is very small, you should re install this first before installing the Hitch Receiver. The appearance panel cuts very easy with tin snips and you can see a line to follow on the panel. It's optional to install this small piece, you don't really need it. I've been a customer of etrailer for 15+ years and have bought all my hitches and bike racks from them and my family buys from them to. I've installed alot of hitches over the years. 163966

I ordered this Draw Tight Hitch from etrailer.com and it was shipped out quickly and well packaged. It had relevant installation instructions and all necessary hardware. After reviewing the installation video I was sure that I could install this in only a short amount of time. Well after 1.5 hrs of trying to align the hitch using 2 floor jacks and various expletives I gave up and called etrailer. They asked for some pictures of the problem which I sent. Basically the "arms" of the hitch were angled inwards, resulting in the hitch being too narrow to fit around the spot where the rear seats fold down on my sienna van. I was able to get 4 of the 6 mounting bolts in place, but there was no way to secure the last 2. etrailer agreed that something was wrong with the hitch and sent out a new one that same day. Fantastic! I received hitch number two and compared it to the 1st hitch which I had not yet returned. It was 3/8ths of an inch NARROWER than the first one. I laid it up against my van just to be sure, and it would not fit at all. I called etrailer again and they swapped out the second hitch for a CURT hitch, which was shipped the same day. I returned both of the drawtight hitches, and received my CURT hitch yesterday 8/3/16. It took me 15 minutes to place and secure the curt hitch to my van. Obviously Drawtight has some pretty serious manufacturing inconsistencies, but I am very happy with the way etrailer was willing to fix the issue. 5 stars for etrailer, 5 stars for the replacement Curt hitch, and zero for Drawtight 278851

This hitch system fit like a glove. I installed it by myself but would recommend someone to help hold in place while bolts installed. I used jacks and wood blocks as my helper and it was a snap. The most work was preparing the NUTS that are welded on the vehicle at the car factory, they were lined up perfect but after years of rust, dirt and so forth it took some serious work to get the fine threads cleaned up. I used a round wire brush in a drill, it took like 1.5 hours to clean up the six nuts good enough to accept the hitch bolts. You will need a good steel or copper round brush and a drill to rotate it. I used balistal gun cleaner on the steel brush, Balistal is a top notch cleaner for this job. After getting the nuts cleaned, the hitch installed like a breeze. Ohh, I did NOT have to disconnect the exhaust pipe, I just worked around it. GREAT Product, amazing how well it fit my Toyota Sienna Van. 397880

Hitch shipped quickly. Took 75 minutes from start to finish to install on my wife's 2011 Sienna. The decorative cover Toyota felt needed to be installed on the underside of the storage area took longer to remove (safely), cut to fit around the hitch and replace than installing the hitch itself. 268006

I purchased this hitch for my wife's 2016 Toyota Sienna. I chose this particular model because the reviews said that it had the most clearance. Once installed, it is even with most of the mechanicals on the bottom of the vehicle. While it doesn't reduce your ground clearance, it could easily have been designed to sit an inch or so higher. However, because it isn't flush against the vehicle, I was able to get the plastic trim piece back on the van with very little trimming. I suspect that there must be fairly significant differences on the rear pan as some of the reviews indicate they couldn't reuse the trim piece and the instructions show cutting away most of the plastic. Either the rear pan for the cargo area was slightly smaller on previous year's models or the one I received had been dropped and the mounting flanges bent towards each other. Though there was no visible damage. The mounting flanges were about 1/4" to 1/2" to narrow for the 2016. Because of this, what should have been a 1 hour job turned in to a 4 hour job. Having to convince the mounting flanges in to place caused more than significant issues. I marked the product down for this reason. I've never had an issue like this with items from etrailer so I'm guessing the Toyota engineers must have made small, but troublesome size changes on the 2016. 267650

Great product, solid, and fits like a glove. Looks great too on my 2013 Sienna. Now we have our bike rack installed on the Sienna and life has improved. What I like most about etrailer was all the great documentation and videos reassuring me that I was getting the right product for my vehicle and helping me fit the correct bike rack. One thing that would be nice to have is a replacement appearance panel (the plastic cover that is removed during the install) that fits around the hitch. Also, your mileage may vary on this, but my hitch wasn't supposed to be delivered until Monday or Tuesday, but to my surprise I received the Friday before - thereby allowing me the convenience of the weekend instead of a late weeknight to install in time for my big trip. I really appreciated that. 157644

Unit was shipped fast and arrived as planned. Installed the unit in a hour or so and went well for one person doing it. I think two people would be the best to lift it up into place. I used a car jack and stands to hold it up and I will be wiring the lights shortly. Ian from the customer service gave me all the options and what the benefits for each one was then helped me make a decision based on my needs. Can’t wait to pull the camper! 526249

One year in and this is a fantastic hitch! The only reservation I have is that it definitely sits low and frequently we scrape it. However, there is no other hitch that solves that problem. Manufacture - solid and durable Install - very straightforward, we had to do a limited amount of cutting to the plastic undercarriage protector, easy to do with snips or a box knife. We used a 4 bike carrier in it for a 2500 mile trip with zero problems. 610032

2009 Toyota Sienna

This setup has worked great for us. No issues in regards to installation, quality of welds or strenght in towing. This hitch is super strong. A driver trying to get past me one day while i was backing up destroyed the side of their vehicle, blew out a tire and cracked their aluminum wheel. Looked at the hitch and it didn't budge at all. Other than a little paint missing on the tongue you would have never known it happened. Only complaint is that it sits low on my 2009 toyota sienna. Just gotta be carful when entering streets from lots and parking areas. Awesome product and I installed it myself without any fancy tools or jacks. 356526

The Class III Hitch I bought from this retailer arrived on time in a sturdy box with minimal damage to the box and none to the powder coat finish on the hitch. I installed it on my 2012 Toyota Sienna in about 1 hour. Add another 15 min of cleanup. It was a relatively easy job with two people and the proper tools. The instructions included were OK, but I watched a You Tube video first that was provided by another manufacturer, but with essentially the same installation technique. The video is worth watching. Made the process of removal, alteration and re-installation of the plastic fascia under my Sienna much easier. Purchasing this product from e-Trailer was easy and hassle free. I will almost certainly purchase future merchandise from them again. I have already recommended the site to my neighbors. 46083

2007 Toyota RAV4

This review is a little about the hitch, but more about the installation process in hopes of helping others and saving them some additional money. First of all, we bought two hitches: 1) 2004 Toyota Sienna = Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" - Item # 75237 and 2) 2007 Toyota Rav4 = Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" Item # 75235. Both frames arrived in excellent condition despite one of the boxes being damaged in shipping. They are obviously well built and meant to fit the specified vehicles. etrailer.com understands how to match vehicles and hitches. Both hitches fit perfectly and no alterations were needed for the hitches. We just finished installing them yesterday and look forward to using them with our new bike rack. Installation hints: 1) Make sure you have everything (tools, lubricant, brush, etc) ready and organized before you try to install your hitch. In my case, I was missing some tools I thought were in the garage and had to make other arrangements. The installation time in the etrailer videos (extremely helpful) is only accurate if you have everything prepped and you don't have any problems with the weldnuts (see #2 below). The actual installation is surprisingly straightforward and could be completed in close to the estimated time. One item you will need, that you might not have, is a torque wrench. Here's the first money saving tip, check with your local auto parts store, to see if they participate in a tool loaner program. Basically, you pick up the tool from their store and pay a deposit (which is the price of the tool), use it, return it, and get your deposit back. While many guys are looking for excuses to buy more tools, I opted to borrow a torque wrench as I don't see myself needing one in the future. If I do, I know where to borrow one :) 2) If your vehicles are a bit older, or if your vehicles operate in wet or snowy areas, there's a very good chance the vehicle weldnuts (threaded inserts - this is where the bolts will thread into) will have dirt, grime, and rust built up in the inserts. I strongly recommend taking the time to make sure your bolts will go into the weldnuts before you mess with the hitch installation. The weldnuts on our 2007 Rav4 were in great shape and only required me to spray in some lubricant (Sea Foam Deep Creep) and clean out with a wire tube brush (Nylon Tube Brush - 1/2" Item # 814092 etrailer.com). If I hadn't done this simple step, I wouldn't have been able to get the bolts to thread. Once I did this, the install was simple. I didn't spent much time doing this. Our 2004 Sienna was a different story. Besides being 3 years older, it also came from an area with more snow and they likely salted/treated the roads which contributed to the problem. Using the lubricant and brushing out several times was not sufficient to get the weldnuts clean enough. The good folks at the local auto parts store listened to the description of the issue I was facing in this installation project. The gentleman helping me said something like, "It sounds like you need to chase the threads to clean them out. We have a thread restorer kit in our tool loaner program." (see two screen shots from their website). I knew what a tap was, but hadn't heard of a thread chaser. I was able to use the thread chaser to clean out all of the junk built up in the weldnuts. In my case, this was a major project as they were in bad shape. I was also being cautious as I didn't want to mess up the threads. Some of the weldnuts required me to go part way in with the thread chaser, bring it out and clean it, relubricate the weldnut and chaser and go again several times. Some of the weldnuts were less problematic. In short, if you run into this issue, see if you can borrow this kit. The thread chaser is designed to be used with a socket and socket wrench. Always start the thread chaser by hand to ensure it isn't cross threaded. Once you're certain it's in the correct way, start slowly with the socket wrench or a drill with socket adapter. The instructions that come with your hitch will provide the specs on the bolts. In our case it the bolts were M12 x 1.25 (I think M12 has to do with the diameter of the bolt and 1.25 refers to the thread pitch (or spacing). 3) Torquing the bolts to spec. The bolts are in an awkward place to work with and torquing them to specification can be a challenge. The Rav4 process went well and I was able to complete this step on my own. Perhaps I was worn out while working on the Sienna or having trouble with the torque wrench, but I finally gave up to seek help. I didn't want to break the bolts! I ended up stopping by the shop which services our vehicles and they torqued to bolts to spec. Because we take our vehicles there on a regular basis, they didn't charge me to take care of the 6 bolts. In conclusion, if you prepare for the install by getting everything ready and your weldnuts are in good shape, this is not a difficult installation project. One of our hitches had 6 bolts and one had 5 bolts. Not rocket science. If your weldnuts are full of junk, try the steps I've mentioned above. Good luck. 518860

  • Differences of Curt and Draw-Tite Trailer Hitches for 2018 Toyota Sienna
    There are a number of similarities between the Draw-Tite # 75237 and the Curt # C13105. They both install onto your 2018 Toyota Sienna in the same way and have a similar look to them. Their capacities are different, with the Draw-Tite being higher, but the Curt is also rated more than you're van so that really isn't a factor. I went out to the warehouse and took a couple measurements to compare the two. The Draw-Tite will sit a little higher off the ground by about an inch but they'll...

  • Best Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2018 Toyota Sienna
    The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75237 is the best trailer hitch receiver in my opinion for your 2018 Toyota Sienna. It has the 2 inch receiver to give you the most options and is the easiest to install. It also has the 675 lbs tongue weight rating which is the strongest of all our options for your vehicle. There is some trimming of an underbody panel required, but there is no fascia/bumper trimming required. If you will be towing with this trailer hitch then I recommend...

    To tow a trailer with your 2007 Toyota Sienna, the best hitch is going to be the Class III Draw-Tite # 75237 over the Class III option from Curt because the Draw-Tite is rated for a higher capacity and is also the more economical choice. This hitch has a 2" receiver and 4,500 lb towing capacity, which is 1,000 lbs more than the capacity of your Sienna though please be sure to adhere to the 3,500 lb capacity of your vehicle. You are also gonig to need to add a 4-way connector # 118304...

  • Bike Rack and Anti-Theft Solution for Use with Draw Tite Hitch 75237 on 2009 Toyota Sienna
    Since the Curt bike rack part # C18029 comes with a threaded hitch pin bolt there isn't a way to use the J-pin # 63201 with it. That being said we have found that the anti-rattle lock # SR0901 is a fit for the threads of the Curt bike racks so this would be the way to go. The Rhino Rack part # RRRBC045 is a great option as well. This would work great with the Draw Tite hitch part # 75237 that you mentioned as well.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2020 Toyota Sienna to Use 4-Bike Rack
    Going with the Draw-Tite is a smart choice because they have proven over time to be the highest-quality manufacturer of trailer hitches, and this is definitely the brand I would use if it were my 2020 Toyota Sienna. Between the two Draw-Tite hitches you asked about, I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76112 because it has a concealed crosstube, which gives you a number of advantages over a hitch that has a visible crosstube, such as the Draw-Tite # 75237 you mentioned.

  • Recommended Hitch for Best Ground Clearance on 2011 Toyota Sienna
    When we test fit hitches, we take note of above ground height of the inside top of the receiver tube. When the size of the receiver (2 inch or 1-1/4 inch) and the thickness of the lip around the receiver (1/4 inch) is deducted, you get a good approximation of the ground clearance provided by each hitch. See the photo I've edited for you. Using these measurements, the Draw-Tite Class III, part # 75237 would provide you the best ground clearance under the hitch, about 9-3/4 inches. If...

    I am sorry to hear you are having problems towing your boat with your 2010 Toyota Sienna. There are a couple of solutions that may work for you. The best and safest way to eliminate the sag at the rear of your vehicle, that occurs when the boat trailer is hooked up, is to use weight distribution.

    Both the Curt Hitch part # C13105 and the Draw-Tite part # 75237 will fit pretty tight to the rear of your 2014 Toyota Sienna. I attached an install pic of both hitches to show you that they both hitches will basically be just as tight. The e-coating is not that new. I will say that if you stripped the e-coat from the hitch, had it galvanized and then powdercoated it would be very corrosion resistant. Is that excessive? Maybe, but it should work.
