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.

The Draw-Tite feels very sturdy and installed as expected after reading owner reviews It just took a little finessing, a couple of cuss words and a motorcycle Jack for me to install it by myself. At the time of this review, it's just been installed, so I haven't had the opportunity to tow with it. First job will be to transport a motorcycle using a car trailer.

I am completely satisfied with the Draw-Tite hitch. Id buy it again.

Too simple. A milk crate and a 2x4 held the hitch right up to the frame, which was threaded for the supplied bolts. One person install, easy. The Hopkins 4 pin harness perfectly plugged right into the factory harness. Couldn't have been easier. Draw-tite hitch heavy duty Quality.

Wanted to be able to pull a RV trailer with my '08 Nissan Frontier which did not come with a tow package originally. This kit provided a great solution. Hitch was a perfect mate to the existing bolt holes in the truck frame. Everything needed was in the package. Admittedly, I had the benefit of using a forklift at work to raise the receiver hitch right up to the frame making install much easier by myself. You'd need a strong, second set of hands if you don't have a way to lift up the hitch otherwise. Hitch works great every time I hook on.

Product arrived quickly. Packaging was good; so not even a scratch on the hitch. The videos on the installation of the hitch and the wiring harness made the job easy. Took about an hour from start to finish. As the video notes, You should definitely take the time to clean the the threaded holes on the vehicle with a spray lubricant and a wire brush; then dry fit the bolts. It'll get out all of the grit and rust particles.

Very nicely made product. It needs to be packaged better though - it had been thrashed about during delivery and the box was worn through in places - the hitch was pretty badly scraped in those places. It also did not align with all of the holes on the frame, I destroyed a C Clamp getting those holes aligned well enough to get the bolts started. Not a 30 minute installation at all.


Comments
Thank you for your review. If any damage occurs during shipping etrailer.com likes to hear about it. It sounds like your hitch receiver was flexed on top of the paint issue. I have attached a help article about the easiest way to fix a flexed hitch.

I installed the Draw-Tite class III on my 2014 Nissan Frontier without much problem. Since I did not have a spare set of hands, I used 2 scissors jacks, one at each end of the hitch, to raise the hitch very close to the frame where they would be bolted. I discovered there is some slip play in the hitch bolt holes, so did not tighten any of the bolts until all 6 bolts were threaded part way into the holes. I then tapped the hitch as far back as it would move toward the back bumper and tightened all 6 bolts. It's a good solid fit. I will be using it to help haul an 18 ft kayak and alternately a bike rack. We also have a 26 ft Trailmanor camper.

Product arrived in good condition and all parts were present. I used a floor jack to raise the hitch into position and maneuver it while doing so as I worked alone. The instructions included were minimal but did provide the proper torque for the bolts. The online installation videos were _very_ helpful. I also was helped by a tip from a reviewer in one of the comments to use a clamp to align the bolt holes with the weldnuts because the final hole was just a fraction of an inch off from allowing the bolt to thread in easily. Installing the hitch portion took about 45 minutes for me but I took my time.


Comments
Working fine.

Good instructions, well packaged, arrived unharmed. The shape of the plates for the safety chains means that hooking them up takes a bit of fiddly work but it's not a huge deal. The existing nuts on the frame of my truck needed their threads cleaned up, which took some doing and some tools from another vendor. Probably would be a good idea for etrailer to offer such a kit as an optional addon for people with older vehicles that have started to rust up a bit.

I liked this design over the competition as well as the included tab for the connector brackets. It seems to me that a straight square tube that the competition has, requires less engineering than a curved tube which helps clear the spare tire. This tells me they focus more on attention to detail on their design. However, I would like to say that it is not perfect. It did have some weld splatter which should have been cleaned off before powder coating, and some chipped paint which I had to re-coat with a can of rustoleum primer/paint. If you can get past these two things, I would say it's a great hitch receiver.

Got an etrailer twofer here. Just installed a Draw Tite hitch on my 2013 Nissan Frontier. The install went perfectly and took about 45 minutes working alone. Kudos to etrailer for FAST shipping, good products and videos that give a guy the confidence to do the job. We traded our Equinox that had an etrailer hitch on it so I picked up a hitch for our truck. The Hollywood bike carrier I have had for some time is also pictured here (also from etrailer) and I could not be happier with this arrangement for carrying our recumbents.

This is the second hitch and wiring harness I purchased from etrailer. The first one was about 10 years ago for my Windstar, which is still running/towing stong. Shipping was quick and arrived within a few days. Parts were neatly fastened to the hitch. I installed the hitch during my 1/2 hr lunch break at work. It was a simple job with one snag. The rear bracket bolt holes did not line up on the driverside. I had to hammer the bracket, furthest from the welded tub, outward. Once that was done I tightened and torked, job complete. I would like to see etrailer encorporate a wiring receiver into the hitch. This would eliminate the ugly hanging on the receiver wire and add to the professionally installed look. This hitch as a small plate on the driver side with pre drilled holes. Perfect for perminatly securing the wiring harness.

Owned for over a year now, and have been satisfied. I bought this one because it accepts the j-hook hitch pin which I really like, and has a spot to mount the bracket for the wiring harness. Everything fit and works great with my 2017 Nissan Frontier.


Comments
Still very happy with the setup. I use the j-pin to keep my carrier from rattling and I added a mount for the trailer electrical connection that mounted straight to the hitch. Still very happy with it all.

Excellent product. Super easy to install. Love the videos on your site. Will order from you again. The pictures show the hitch installed on my 2013 Nissan Frontier. It looks like it sticks out a little from the bumper,but it really does not.


Comments
It has been awesome. I tow a small Aliner Scout camper and it has held up great. I love that it has the hooks for my tow chains. One reason why I purchased this one in particular.

The hitch bolted right up, came with the correct hardware. Using an impact wrench it took about 10 minutes to install. It looks great on my Nissan Frontier. It got dinged up in shipping, quite a bit of paint was missing off of it, and it had some severe scratches. It's a tow hitch, it's hidden under my truck so It's not a big deal, I touched up the paint. Just irritating it came in dinged up. It was bubble wrapped, I don't blame etrailer, I'm blaming the shipping company.

My 2008 Nissan Frontier. Turns out it didn’t have the trailer tow package but I was able to purchase the relay harness from my Nissan dealer. It also included the trailer wiring harness that not only fit the vehicle frame but connected perfectly with the mounting plate on the new hitch. Bought the DrawTite bolt on hitch kit. It had a slight bend on the passenger side which required me to use a small block of wood between the hitch and the rear bumper to prevent it from slipping while I used a light tug on a small crowbar to move the bracket into place directly over the mounting holes. Once I got the four corner bolts in it was a snap after that. I took these photos with the truck up on a pair of ramps while I was installing the tow package relays and the trailer wiring harness a few days after I installed the hitch. Photo 1: A rear view of the mounted hitch. Nice clean lines, doesn’t hang too low or stick out too far in back. A perfect fit! Photo 2: Another angle of the hitch. The receiver is in place while the rest of the hitch is barely visible below the chassis. Photo 3: From beneath. The reason I ordered the DrawTite hitch is the drawbar goes completely through the mounting brackets rather than simply welded to the sides. The six mounting bolts are snug up under the frame and the tab on the driver side is perfect for mounting the wiring harness/plug. Photo 4: The wiring harness that came with the tow package relay harness attaches directly to the drawbar perfectly. Rather than using the two 10mm hex head screw/bolts that came with the kit I attached the wiring bracket to the drawbar plate with two 7/16” x ½” coarse thread screws with washers and lock washers that I had on hand in the workshop.

Really nice to get a product that installs just as advertised... Took about 15 minutes to install hitch by myself using my floor jack to raise it into place, no strain what-so-ever, very simple install. Wiring connector was another simple install as well as the wiring behind the passenger kick panel. Everything went as advertised, no hiccup at all.

Received Hitch for 2017 Nissan Frontier in two days, I am 67 & have COPD took me 45 minutes to install hitch using two jack stands & a floor jack. Took me 45 minutes to install wiring kit most of that was removing trim in cab to get to wiring. Local trailer store wanted $250 for hitch & installation, I bought hitch for [great price] from Etrailer, wiring kit was [low price] from etrailer did not price it locally. etrailer always sells quality products at a good price and ships promptly.

Easy on line purchase. Delivery was on time. Installation was a breeze- I had read most of the reviews and learned the following: clean out the weld nuts with WD40 and a battery terminal cleaner prior to bolting it up and use a floor jack to lift the receiver to the proper position. These two things made it a 20 minute job.
