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. Technical Support

At 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.

Bought this to trailer my bikes with a bike rack that hooks to the hitch. It has worked great! Excellent product.

Great! No problems - fit perfectly - good product!
Steve K - 06/29/2022

2005 Chevrolet Uplander

We received our hitch quickly. We were not expecting it to arrive so quickly. The hitch was exactly what we needed at a much lower cost than what the local dealers were quoting us. We had our dealership install the hitch for us and all went smoothly. The instructions were easy to understand. We also watched a video on how to install on our vehicle which also helped. Kudos to etrailer Corporation!

We bought the hitch and wiring kit. Being older we had our regular garage man install. No problem installing and it has been working great this whole year. I would definitely recommend this product and company for your needs.

Works very well strong and easy to inst all

Very well

etrailer is always my first choice for trailer and related products. Their install videos are most helpful and one main reasons I go there first! They have the best prices I have found. Fastest shipper I have ever dealt with. Great personal service too! Thanks

2003 Pontiac Montana

This is as good as it gets, watched the videos they had for my specific model 2003 Montana, did it by myself since I had no help, no problem. Perfect. They send you everything you need so you can't go wrong. A+++, extremely happy.

Working like a champ. No problem, live it.

Hi great hitch ty Nicole for taking and processing order quickly great product good price installed easily would recommend product and etrailer have a great day

2005 Pontiac Montana SV6

Awesome hitch, receiver opening is pretty much the only thing noticeable once installed. Using basic homeowner type tools and lying on the ground on my back it took me about 2 hours to install, and that's including a few short breaks. Hardest part was drilling the required holes with a 3/8" drill, had to step up in drill size a few times. By the way, I'm 68 years young, and the temperature here in Florida was about 90 degrees when I installed it so needless to say I didn't move too fast.


If you don't have an air compressor for shocks, it should take no more than an hour including finding tools.
If you have an air compressor give yourself at least another hour or more.
With the wiring kit and making everything look factory installed it took me about 4 hours.

Great , works as it should.
Chris - 03/08/2021


Hitch came slightly bent. Holes did not line up. Had to bend it to get it to fit. Ordering and timely receipt from etrailer was great.

Sometimes hitch receiver brackets flex and they need pushed back into alignment. Here are some tips to help fix this:
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 12/10/2021


. The hitch is of very high quality mat erial.


Looks great and easy to install (after a little man handleling). is great to work with, shipping was fast and tracking information very accurate.

Phone support was very helpful!

Thank you.

2007 Chevrolet Uplander

The hitch was in good shape when it was delivered. Box had a hole in it and the parts bag was ripped open . Other than a couple things missing in the parts bag it was a relatively easy install


There was no hardware to mount this trailer hitch


Easy install. Nice tips and pictures from etrailer

Good addition to our van

Jacked up rear end, 30 minutes Hitch was on . Jack down 10 minutes later wiring was done. How simple was that??? etrailer is a great supplier. Doug

2008 Pontiac Montana SV6

I recently purchased a hitch from etrailer and I am extremely happy with the product. The install was rather easy even by myself. I also purchased a wiring harness which was again a simple install. Now I'm ready to go fishing!
Thanks etrailer

Fantastic. Not one problem at all and many fishing trips!

Great hitch. Fit perfect . Easy install Tow with it quite often.

Perfect. I tow a utility trailer a few times a week. Never a problem.

Installation instructions were clear and I haven’t had any trouble with the hitch.

2005 Saturn Relay

I openly consider myself to be one of the least mechanically inclined individuals on the planet! Needless to say that when my wife brought up the topic of putting a trailer hitch on our Saturn minivan I felt a rush of insecurity and trepidation flood over me, especially since she was suggesting doing it ourselves. After blacking out for a short period of time I awoke to my wife saying that she had come across the e-trailer website and that it was very helpful. Of course that is easy for her to say since I would end up being the one under the back end of the minivan with lots of parts and no idea what to do with them. However, after further review e-trailer proved to be different than the other websites. They set themselves apart with their helpful, detailed and easy to follow videos as well as their outstanding customer service. Every step of the way I had knowledgable and committed support if needed (even after the purchase was finalized). The parts arrived in a very speedy fashion and just as ordered. True to the descriptions and online support all of the parts were in fact proper fitting and as easy as described to install. I would most definitely recommend using e-trailer for anyone in the market for a hitch, in particular non-motor heads like myself.


nice looking hitch,easy to mount ,only thing the box was broken and the hitch had paint taken off one side.

2005 Chevrolet Venture

I got exactly what I ordered and it installed very easily. I have never installed one of these before, but I am good with my hands. Took me a little over 3hrs including hooking up wiring harness. One of their videos shows just plugging it in and running it out the trunk. I went the extra mile and hid my wiring. I had to fish a nut through the frame with a bendable metal and that actually only took a few minutes. Very excited about this hitch.

2008 Chevrolet Uplander

Easy install. Directions were pretty good. If you get the hitch get the plug and play wiring harness too. Easy install. Hitch just pokes it head out from under the bumper. Looks good. No complaints and shipping was fast. So glad I found this site.

2001 Pontiac Montana

The installation fit like a glove for my 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette van. Looks great exactly like the 2001 Montana video you have on your site. It is truly as easy as it looks on the video. I am guessing the two of us took about 45 minutes to install it. The bolts on the driver side fit very well with the leveling compressor and drilling only one hole in the compressor mounting plate and the bolts on the passenger side were perfect to remove and use the kit provided bolts that also served as the mounting bolts for the exhaust pipe installation on top of the hitch. Couldn't be happier with the installation and the cost. Thank you very much. We will be towing a pop up tent trailer so we should no issues what so ever.


Levelling compressor caused issues - with no templates it was a little tricky. In hindsight, I should have mounted the hitch temporarily with the compressor between the hitch and chassis rail, and drilled the extra hole needed through the compressor mounting plate (don't apply too much pressure or you'll drill into the weld nut threads once you go through the compressor mounting plate).

If aestehtics are important to you, the black paint/coating on the hitch scratches easily, so make sure you have a blanket or something else to rest the hitch on while you're working.

Otherwise the install went just like the video said.
