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.

I cannot grade the towing capability yet, but this review is on installation. Less than one hour from start till I was putting tools away on the same day of arrival.
One man job with the assistance of a rolling floor jack.
Put rear up on ramps, hit holes with wd40, used one bolt to test run all threads, did not unhook tailpipe, simply insert the plate in, over, and let it rest on on exhaust (majority of weight still supported by jack). Start with left side, place 1 bolt loosely and then continue to switch sides with two at a time. Used torque wrench at 68 lbs to finish securing. Done. Looks great too! Up next: electrical and trans cooler. Thank you etrailer for the product and videos. Bought the hitch bc of such great reviews.


Comments
Wonderful. Great towing hitch. Looks clean, sleek, and strong. No problems at all. Well pleased! Have used numerous times for towing.

This can be a one man job if you have ramps and a short step stool. The thing that made the install take longer than 30 minutes was that the bolts on the passenger side would not line up if the drivers side bolts were on. I had to remove all the bolts on the driver side and set the hitch on a step stool 12 inches high so that the driver side was about 3 inches away from the mounting location. This was the only way i could get all three passenger side bolts to line up. Torqued to 69 pound-feet and i was done. Three stars for those three bolts.


Comments
I had the same problem and it was a nightmare. Why is everyone giving this 4-5 stars then? Box arrived was a joke. The the holes didnt align. Im curious whether the reviews are real or not.

by:

I'm not sure how a hitch install could be any easier. It doesn't require two people because you can hang the passenger side of the hitch on the tailpipe while you start one of the bolts on the drivers side. By a mile, the hardest part is chasing the existing threads on the van. My van had traveled many dirt roads and the grime was thick on the underside. Still, this wasn't a hard job at all. I've included pics of the installed hitch and the 6 bolts (yes, only 6) that are required to do this job. We're going to the lake this weekend and we'll be pulling the popup behind us. We also bought a transmission cooler from this site as well and it's going to keep the transmission cool while we're hauling kids, bicycles, pets, and everything else down to the campsite.

Good hitch and I welded it on but haven’t actually used it yet. I was going to row a small utility trailer but never have.

I haven’t busted it to tow but I have used it as a bike rack and other small things. I had it welded on do it is stronger and will carry more weight.

Hitch seems solid enough. Instructions seemed adequate. On my Honda Odyssey, the hitch makes a lot of noise. Despite following the torque specifications.


Comments
I would check the instructions to make sure everything was installed correctly. Also check to see if any debris could have been in between the hitch and the frame of the vehicle. There shouldnt be any noise from the hitch. Please let us know if the issue still remains.

Really great product. Fits my 2005 Odyssey like a glove. This was my very first installation and I can confirm that it can in fact be installed by a single person, without raising the car and without removing the exhaust pipe. It did take a while (probably 1.5 hrs total) to complete as I needed to clean the threads in the weld nuts. Following recommendation from someone on this web-site (i.e. one of the reviewers), I had purchased an M12 x 1.25 tap and it made the work super easy (initially tried just WD40 with steel brush with basically zero effect as there was some serious rust build up in the threads). I've positioned the hitch on two jack stands (which supported it at JUST the right elevation) and started "wiggling" it towards the car frame. The driver's side was a piece of cake. It took a bit of effort to squeeze the passenger side of the hitch in between the car frame and the exhaust pipe. Once that was completed, the rest was relatively easy. I forgot to mention that I did try to remove the exhaust pipe, but didn't manage to do so. It would have made the things easier, but in the end I ended up "deflecting" the pipe suspended on the rubber piece by hand in order to be able to work with the bolts on the passenger side. All in all, very nice fit, super strong and sturdy hitch and overall - a really great experience (and tons of satisfaction =). Thanks etailer.

Purchased this hitch rather than others because I like that it picks up all six factory weld nuts making the bolt pattern long and strong, has massive bent up shear webs, uses welded lug design to retain tube, exceeds my vehicle rating, and is compatible with j-pins. I have a steep driveway so ground clearance was a concern. While several other hitch models/brands have slightly better clearance (better by 5”-.75” at receiver) they require more install time and vehicle mods, or don’t look as structurally redundant. My hitch arrived in a banged up box, which is understandable given the products’ size and weight. One spot of powder coat was chipped off. I spray painted the spot before install. I used ramps for more working space. My Ody has factory mud guards, so I had to remove the driver side guard before the fascia. Fascia protected driver side weld nuts from rust, but pax side rust was moderate. Did not drop the exhaust. Used 2x6 on a floor jack to lift and roll hitch into position. Rolled right over exhaust without problem. Kids served as outriggers on 2x6 to prevent tip over, which never was an issue. Exhaust is directly below aft two weld nuts but a socket wrench with long extension can be used to push the exhaust pipe genially out of the way, even when still connected to the rubber grommets. It took some a little shifting and trial and error to get all six bolts to line up and go in. I found it best to put aft bolts on each side in first, then the forward, then middle. Like a tire, I incrementally torqued in a star-like pattern. Total install time was 3hrs, but I wasn’t in a hurry. After installation I checked clearance at bottom of driveway and found it to be 1.5”. I’m looking into skid wheel options for when I’m loaded. All-in-all, I’m happy with my experience thus far.




by:

Hitch was very easy to install per included instructions. The hardest part was holding the hitch in place while I installed the bolts. I used blocks of wood to hold the hitch in place. Thanks again for a quality product with easy installation!

Free shipping delivered within 3 days! The bracket ends were sticking out of the box and had minor cosmetic scratches which did not affect installation or function. Hitch is over 40lbs, oversized & bulky shape so not a surprise to see that. I read installation would take hours and required ramp to raise back end but that was not the case for me. We're in SoCal where there's not much rain so cleaning mounting holes on the frame was really easy. A single spray of WD-40 and I was able to hand screw all 6 bolts. I only had to pop the tail pipe off the last rubber mount to get at the bolts on right side. I used 2 car jacks to lift up & position the hitch to be mounted (see pic). In fact not raising the back end allowed easier installation for me. The longest time was spent nudging hitch to get that last bolt in. Total job time - about 2 hrs from opening box to completion. Excellent hitch, strong solid feel, and much easier installation than expected.




by:
2008 Honda Odyssey

Shipped with some scratches and damage to the surface - in part due to rough shipping, but also was packaged to let the hitch break through the box. I am worried about rust being an issue because of this. Installation was easy, without checking any videos, except one area where the bolts were too far apart. I suspect this was Honda's fault, and specific to my car. A file fixed the clearances pretty easily. I purchased a torque wrench to ensure the bolts were snugged down correctly, and after the clearances issue was resolved, the bolts went in with no issue. I checked all bolt holes for grit before install, and had little problem but used wd-40 on each to make sure.

So, as usual etrailer is great.....this is the second hitch I bought and installed myself from etrailer. I was able to install this one easily without drilling, etc. A+++ customer service.

I never right reviews but they followed up a year later. This was installed a year ago and all good. Great deal and service.

2009 Honda Odyssey

Bought a trailer hitch for our 2009 Honda Odyssey. The only hitch (get it) was that it was delayed in shipping by one day. The delay was by UPS, not etraler's fault. We live in a remote part of California, so that's not very unusual.

The hardest part of the instillation was getting the rubber exhaust hanger free. A squirt of WD40 took care of that. It bolted up perfectly, as if it came from the Honda factory.

I also bought the trailer wire kit. My biggest anxiety was getting the interior panels off without damaging the clips. They came off easily and the wire kit installed as easy as the hitch.

Overall, it took about 2 hours from start to finish. That includes getting out the jack, stands, tools, being interrupted by my two year old a few times and cleanup.

I chose etrailer because of the price for a Draw-Tite hitch. I had found cheaper hitches online, but didn't know the brands. I trust Draw-Tite. We are in the market for a vintage camping trailer and this is what we need to pull it.

I told my wife that this was easiest part I've ever installed. It went as straight forward as the instructions showed.

Thank you etrailer.

Our hitch is still working great. When the time comes to get a new vehicle, I’ll be looking to etrailer if it doesn’t already have a hitch. I’m very happy with my purchase.

( A CRITICAL TIP FROM MY BOSS WHO IS A LONG TIME TRAILER USER AND AUTO AND BIKE MECHANIC)..YOUR INSTALLATION VIDEO'S WERE VERY HELPFUL PARTICULARLY ON THE WIRING INSTALLATION...I WILL FOLLOW-UP WITH SOME ACTION PHOTO'S...I AM STILL SHOPPING FOR THE MOTORCYCLE TRAILER!!!.........MY EXPERIENCE WITH E-TRAILER HAS BEEN OUTSTANDING...EXCELLENT SELECTION OF TRAILER PRODUCTS...VERY COMPETITIVE PRICING...VERY QUICK DELIVERY...VERY GOOD INSTRUCTIONS AND EXCELLENT VIDEO ON THE MECHANICAL AND ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION.

Perfect fit, after watching the most helpful videos provided by eTrailer. At first unit wasn't lining up, but when visiting the site, the expansive help section guided me in the right direction.

Kudos




by:

The first one I ordered had to be returned because it was damaged that was easy enough to do no issues so that was nice. When installing the bolts it would have been nice if the directions mentioned that you need to clean out the pre-drilled holes. Overtime dirt builds up and even with the appropriate torque still managed to completely strip and destroy the hole. So I got five out of six bolts holding it on unless it gets re-machined, that’s all I’ll ever get probably OK to carry bikes but will never support a trailer so that’s disappointing.


Comments
Since the bolt is stuck in the bolt hole where it spins freely indicates that the weld nut has broken off on the frame. There are two ways that it can be repairs. The first is to cut off the bolt and remove it along with the weld nut. You would them drill the hole out to 0.5 inch. After that find an access point in the frame that you could fish wire an 0.5 bolt, a spacer block like part # RP3022
Trailer Hitch Spacer Block - 3" Long x 1" Wide x 1/4" Thick
$8.56
, and a 0.5 hex nut like part # 55178
Hex Nut - 1/2"
$2.78
. We do not carry the 0.5 carriage bolt that you would need however we do have the fish wire part # 80101-1
1/2" Bolt Leader
$5.62
. I do have a video that you can reference below. You may need to remove the hitch entirely to do this and if that is the case then new hitch hardware is needed. It would be part # RHK
Replacement Hardware Kit for Trailer Hitches
$54.49
on our site. The second option would be to weld the hitch on in that location.

Fit my 2016 Honda Odyssey just as described. The exposed holes needed to be scrubbed with a wire brushed and the bolt worked in, but that was due to the age of my van.

Works great ... has me wondering why it took so long to install one on my van.

I use it primarily for a utility trailer (carting items to the landfill), as well as, for a bike carrier that holds 4 bicycles.

I read somewhere that the suggested time to install was 2-hours and it was spot-on.
After a quick inspection of the undercarriage ... I made a trip to the local "store" to get a 1/2" tube brush and 12 mm x 1.25 Tap set ... even though you might be able to save a buck or two ... SAVE yourself the trouble and hassle and just ORDER them both when you but this hitch.

My son and i spent about 1 1/2 of those 2 hours cleaning out a number of years worth of road grit from the pre-installed holes on the vans frame designed to receive the bolts that came with the hitch kit. Once the holes were cleaned out and the muffler exhaust pipe freed ... it was about 20 minutes to install. Very straight forward. The holes in the hitch lined up with the pre-installed holes on the Vans frame without much maneuvering needed.

While you can probable install this solo, the hitch is "kind of heavy" when you lying on the ground ... so a helper is ... helpful.

The video was an excellent resource for the install ... GREAT JOB!!!!.


Comments
Still a great hitch after 1 year of service. Still solid and no problems. as noted by others, there is some paint chipping off with minor noticeable corrosion at those spots... However, after the year of trips to the Landfill, scout camps, miles of travel on gravel roads hauling a utility trailer and bike rack and the associate abuse of being under the van ... this has been the best upgrade a vehicle owner can make. when the van goes ... the hitch will stay.

Installed last weekend. Tourqed it last night all in all pretty smooth. I jumped the gun and purchased a tap to clean the holes up and I'm glad I did. 10 years of brine can really gum things up. The only thing I didn't agree with in the instructions was removing the exhaust support and getting the exhaust pipe to the side. To many chances to damage the rubber pipe hangar. I ended up jacking up the right rear end of the van to get enough ground clearance and did not have to disturb the pipe except a slight push to the side while putting the receiver in position. All in all pretty easy with a little preparation.

This was easy to install if your slightly handy and have some basic tools. The hitch has held a Thule swing arm style 4-bike rack, loaded with all 4 bikes. We have taken this hitch on a road trip from WA, thru ID and MT and to MN, and back. Unloading and loading for bike rides along the way. We have used this for multiple camping trip, again loaded with the Thule rack and all the bikes. Never once have we had any issue with the hitch. When you compare the price of a dealership and ordering off the internet (here) it was enough of a price difference to take the risk and this one paid off huge! So worth it! Do not use a dealer if you are ok installing this yourself. There are install video tutorials to follow. This product had been rock solid for our family. Oh, we have it on a Honda Odyssey, 2014. Sad we have no photos of it all loaded with the bikes. And funny, we just unloaded them all two days ago from a trip... sorry, but I promise it is impressive!

2003 Honda Odyssey

All the holes lined up on my 2003 Odyssey. The hard part was cleaning out the holes in the frame. The bolt size is M12 x 1.25 x 35. The important part is the M12x1.25 if you need to buy a test bolt to help clean out the holes. I ended up using a tap to very slowly and carefully clean out the holes while spraying in PB Blaster to help dissolve the dirt and rust. Cleaning out the holes took way longer than mounting the hitch. Patience is needed when cleaning out the holes so you don't create a larger problem. Spraying PB Blaster on a little piece of paper towel and screwing in the towel into the holes helps soak the threads without having it all drip out.

6 pieces of stacked 2x lumber per side was just the right height to hold the hitch in place while bolting it on. Make sure you center the hitch to the gas tank so you don't have one side touching the gas tank.




by:

The kit was perfect. I had real trouble finding the proper tap to run into my threaded holes in my Honda Odyssey. Not sure if etrailer sells a kit that has the right tap or not but they should. I had trouble tapping the holes around the muffler. All in all the kit I bought fit perfect and it was just my own short comings the gave me the trouble. Highly recommend etrailer!


Comments
If you need a tap for your Odyssey to install this Draw-Tite hitch, you can use part PTW8662. This kit includes a 12 mm x 1.25 drill bit and tap. If your weld nuts have been exposed to road grime for years and a wire brush just will not cut it, a tap can help clean the threads so you can install your hitch.

  • Cleaning Weldnuts to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2006 Honda Odyssey
    You have to be very careful when using a tap on the weldnuts on your 2006 Honda Odyssey. This should be a last resort. The first thing to try is liberal use of spray lubricants such as WD40 or PB Blaster, let it soak for about 15 minutes, then use a wire brush and some elbow grease to clean out the threads. You may need to repeat this several times for the best results. I have linked a help article and a video on this subject for you. If you have no choice but to use a tap you have to...

  • Could Draw Tite Trailer Hitch 75270 Be Used to Tow a Tow Dolly
    The Draw Tite trailer hitch part # 75270 that you referenced has a 4,500 lb weight capacity. As long as the weight of the vehicle and tow dolly weighs less than that the hitch would be just fine. You would also need to check the owners manual of your vehicle as well to be sure you do not exceed this towing capacity figure as well.

  • Why Does a Trailer Hitch Start to Rust After 3 Years
    Oxidation occurs on steel if subjected to the proper conditions. If the hitch was never outside, never wet, and never exposed to salt brine used to treat snowy roads then theoretically it should not rust. What starts rust normally is the protective powder coat being scratched away which is bound to happen in the process of using the hitch. You can sand away the rust and apply some primer or paint to stop the corrosion from spreading. If the hitch does get salt brine on it or sea water...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 4 Bike Rack on a 2012 Honda Odyssey
    For a 4 bike rack on your 2012 Honda Odyssey I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75270. It is a 2-inch hitch with a GTW of 4,500 lbs and a tongue weight of 675 lbs and requires no welding to install. I recommend a 2-inch hitch over a 1-1/4-inch hitch in the event you decide to tow a trailer. I have included links to the installation instructions and a video showing the installation of this hitch on your vehicle. Be sure to check your owners manual to verify your vehicle's towing capacities...

  • Has Hidden Hitch part # 70737 Been Replaced With Draw-Tite part # 75270
    I spoke with Hidden Hitch and you are correct:Hidden Hitch part # 70737 was obsoleted in 2009 and replaced with Draw-Tite part # 75270. Draw-Tite part # 75270 is form/fit/functionally the same as part # 70737. There are a few aesthetic differences between the two hitches, however, they are not visually noticeable.

  • Cleaning Out Weldnuts to Install a Trailer Hitch is Not Working on a 2005 Honda Odyssey
    Cleaning weldnuts out on a vehicle in order to install a trailer hitch takes a lot of time and elbow grease. Basically the weldnuts may appear to be clean but getting all of the grime out can take longer than you might think. Make sure you are use a lubricant like WD-40 or PB Blaster. I do not believe this is a case of fine thread vs coarse thread but you could go find a coarse threaded bolt of the same size and see if it goes in to solve that mystery. And if all else fails you could...

  • Rented Trailer Lights Not Working with Wiring Harness on 2006 Honda Odyssey but Work with Truck
    There is likely a ground problem on the trailer. Trailers that will only ground through the ball or otherwise coupled to the trailer have a ground issue that needs to be addressed. The other possible issue is that the trailer draws more power than what the wiring harness is rated for. If I knew the wiring harness you were using I could most likely determine what it is rated for. To test this you can disconnect some of the lights. If everything starts working then the issue was the over-draw....

  • Troubleshooting the Anti-Rattle Device of a Thule Apex 5 Bike Rack part # TH9026
    I would inspect the wedge of the anti-rattle device on your Thule Apex 5 Bike Rack part # TH9026 to see if maybe some dirt or corrosion is interfering with the operation of the anti-rattle device as it sounds like it is binding up for some reason. I spoke to my contact at Thule and she hadn't heard of this problem before so it's not something the rack is prone to doing. You might even try lubricating the anti-rattle device while trying to tighten and loosen it to see if you can get it to...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for Bike Rack on 2016 Honda Odyssey

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Recommended for a 2007 Honda Odyssey
    The discontinued Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75103 is designed to fit Honda Odysseys from 1999 to 2004. For your 2007 Odyssey I recommend the Draw-Tite # 75270. This is a newer version from the 75103. The new version has higher capacities and a cleaner look in my opinion.

  • Troubleshooting The Installation Of Draw-Tite # 75270 On 2008 Honda Odyssey
    This is not a normal fit for the Draw-Tite # 75270 on your 2008 Honda Odyssey. I reached out to my contact at the manufacturer and they said that is a big hitch and it can get tweaked side to side. If it is that side to side that isn't lining up, it sounds like it was tweaked. It should measure 53-1/8 inch center to center on those slots from side to side. If it was way out, it would most likely be a drop during shipping but is possibly a mis-drill, but it sounds really close. To...

  • Reattaching Rear Driver Side Panel on Honda Odyssey after Draw-Tite Max-Frame Hitch Installation
    Some models of the 2016 Honda Odyssey do have a plastic panel covering the driver side frame, which appears to be the case on your vehicle. When installing the Draw-Tite # 75270, as you noted, you will need to remove this panel. Once the hitch is installed, you can either leave the panel off or trim it to fit and reattach. Unfortunately, like you discovered, the bolt is not long enough to reach the frame with the untrimmed panel in-between. I did speak with my contact at Draw-Tite and...
