Fully welded vehicle trailer hitch is strong and durable. Draw-Tite's Tested Tough guarantee ensures that this hitch exceeds industry standards. The combination of an e-coat base and a powder coat finish provides excellent rust protection.
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.
At etrailer.com we're committed to the products we sell, and to our customers.

Today on our 2007 Chrysler Town and Country, well be installing Draw-Tite Hitch, part number 75305. Now before we begin our install, heres what your hitch will look like on the vehicle. At this point well go ahead and give you a few measurements to help assist you when selecting accessories such as a drawbar, a bike rack or a cargo carrier. From the top of the receiver tube to the ground measures 12 inches and from the center of the 5/8 inch hitch pinhole to the outermost part of the bumper measures 2 inches. Now lets go ahead with our install. Now to being our installing, well need to locate the three attachment points on either side of the frame.
Well be using for our rear two attachment points, the two bolts here on the leaf spring shackle. The other attachment is the bolt here just in front of the leaf spring shackle. Now well go ahead and remove our hardware. Well remove the two bolts from the leaf spring shackle making sure to leave the center bolt in place. We can then remove the forward attachment.
Well do this on both sides of the vehicle. Now well retain our hardware as they will be reused to install our new hitch. With all of our hardware out, were ready to put the hitch into position. Well begin by sliding the hitch over the passenger side leaf spring. Now the forward attachment point is the only thing that will be over the leaf spring.
After slide the passenger side front attachment point over the leaf spring, well slide it back towards the rear of the vehicle where we can take the driver side of the hitch and move it towards the front of the vehicle where well put the forward attachment point over the top of the leaf spring. With that done we can now move our hitch into position and line it up with the attachment point holes. With it lined up, well put the four bolts in here on our rear attachment point. Now on the forward attachment points included with the hitch were two spacer blocks. These blocks will go in between the forward attachment point here on the hitch and the frame of the vehicle.
With the block in we can now reinstall the bolt where well tighten everything down and torque it to specification as indicated in the instructions. With all of our hardware tight, our hitch is installed, which will complete our installation of Draw-Tite hitch, part number 75305 on our 2007 Chrysler Town and Country. .

Having purchased a camper intended to be towed by our Chrysler T&C van, my major concern was finding a trailer hitch to fit our van that I could obtain and install myself in the few days before our camping trip. e-Trailer provided the solution: easily searchable site, expert pre-sale advice, quick delivery, post-sale installation help, and the job is done with a day to spare. If it were not for some installation glitches, my review would be "excellent", but there is room for improvement in the installation instructions, particularly the plug-n-tow wiring. 1. For the hitch itself, my biggest problem for the first 10 minutes was trying to find a socket that fit the spring-hanger bolts. I finally read the instructions more closely and learned that I needed a 15mm and an 18mm socket, which fortunately I had. I found that it is necessary to both read the brief instructions AND watch the appropriate video. In my case, this required several trips back and forth between my barn and my office to review the video when the instructions were unclear. 2. No useful wiring instructions were included with my wiring package. After calling in, I was referred to instructions for an alternate product, but neither the video nor the documentation were accurate in all respects. And, most annoying, part #42235 didn't install per the instructions: there is, for example, no stand-alone ground wire to screw anyplace; there is insufficient wire length to allow storage of the plug in the jack compartment; and it will probably be necessary to buy a 4-pin extender to actually use the plug. But, all in all, I got the job done. Everything works, so thank you! 48865

i am sorry it took me so long to install your product. i am 74 years young, a service connected disable american veteran. we findly had a nice day, 70 degrees, for me to lay on the warm ground and install the tow system. your instructions for installation were very easy to understand and follow. the tow system was a little heavy for an old man, but this older man prevailed. the tow bar was a perfect fit. took me about 45 minutes to install. thank you for a tow system that is perfect for me. i hope i get the oppertunity to recommend your company. john 33366

Product fit very well. Installation was easy except for one non-serious issue. I am a backyard mechanic and don't have a lift available or any assistants to help me. When I jacked my van up to install, I jacked it up on the rear axle with one jack at each wheel. This was not a good idea because I couldn't get the hitch at enough of an angle to slip it into place. To remedy I just jacked the vehicle by the jacking points. Therefore the wheels and axles and springs just hung down and presto, it was easy to position the hitch for installation. 15279

Haven't hing yet but install was a snap! Very solid product there were some scratches/chipped paint on hitch that is why 4 stars. Installed on 07 Town & Country alone with out raising the van. With help it's easily a 15 min job. Installed the hitch and T-one in an hour. Instruction videos are good. Next to tackle tranny cooler. 14599

Hitch was of great quality. I love the videos to help with installation. Wiring harness was installed VERY easily by just plugging it in. The only issue I had was one bolt hole on the hitch was an 1/8 to 1/4 inch off and required a little creativity to get the bolt started. After the threads were started the impact drill did the rest. Service was amazing as always. I am a repeat customer and would gladly order again! Thanks 12703
Wiring harness was a challenge, no fault of the product, just the interior panels of the van proved to be difficult. Hitch and harness was at my door in 3 days. The hitch was a breeze, took longer to get the ramps and tools together than to put the hitch on. This is the 3rd time I purchased a hitch from etrailer. I tell all my friends to buy from here also. Keep up the good business etrailer !!!! 14691

I haven't pulled with the hitch yet, but installation was fairly simple. I did it myself with little struggle. The pictures in the instructions were helpful. A tip: if the holes do not line up perfectly, put the bigger bolt in on each side, then use a jack to lift where the receiver goes in. Cranking that up will spread the hitch to help match up the smaller bolt and holes. 86253

what can be easier then taking out 3 existing bolts per side on vehicle slide unit into position and reinstall same bolts. all holes lined up exactly. start to finish 15 minutes on car lift. twice as long if not longer if car is on ground. purchased this unit and wire harness for almost $200 cheaper then what car dealer wanted. plus they would of hit me for 2 hrs labor. 31978

This puppy is SOLID! So it is a bit overkill for use in towing my little 5x8 utility trailer, it looks better prepared to haul a tank or something. I just got finished mounting it myself and for the most part it fit quite well.....I should perhaps have reamed out two of the holes a bit to get better alignment....but it's on tight. I can't wait to use it. 38928

Hitch arrived in perfect condition. I ordered wiring harness from etrailer also. Videos from etrailer made installation a breeze. Hitch looks great. My dad has ordered several hitches from etrailer. He (and I) was (were) very impressed with how well the hitch fit to the existing chassis. Great Product. 23838

So far all I have done is install the hitch... well my brother did anyway. It took him about an hour and 45 minutes to get the hitch and wiring installed. The instructions explained the installation well, but you actually had to read them. Just skimming dod not work well in this case. 21813

Excellent service. Quick delivery, easy to use web site and ordering process. I did have a little trouble reinstalling two bolts but that was due to access issues and the fact I was laying on the concrete. Looks good installed and it is all that was advertised. 48532
Very easy to install. I don't know anything about cars and installed this. Really glad I didn't need to drill anything. Take 6 screws out and put the hitch in place with a friend and screw the 6 screws back in that easy. Watch the video its a no brainer. 24994

Trailer Hitch fit the Caravan as advertised, looks really good. The installation instructions were clear and easy to follow. I can't wait to start towing my motorcycle trailer soon after I install the electrical wiring. 6922

Incredibly fast delivery! Hitch fit perfectly. Videos were a great help. Installation was painless. The only problem I had was that there were no existing bolts in the vehicle. I had to go out and buy new bolts. 21851
delivery was quick, price was great, installation was easy. haven't pulled anything yet, but assume will have no problems. this is the 2nd hitch i've purchased through etrailer. very satisfied, would do it again. 45847

Very pleased with this hitch. Went on in about 30-40 minutes. The hardest part was getting the wiring harness in place on our minivan. But installing the hitch itself was a breeze! Would highly recommend. 22391

Shipping was free and delivery took only three days :) The hitch was very easy to install and appears to be good quality. My hope is that after a few years of use this rating can be moved up to Excellent! 17285
Must have been friday - 4:59pm when the hitch was welded together had to use punches and bars to get holes to line-up guess I felt let down from all the great reviews guess soneone gets a lemon 42384

The installation went off without a "hitch". It fit my 2006 Town & Country as advertised, and without any problems. I finished the job in about 45 minutes without help. 15753

Everything went very smoothly. The video helped a lot, and he had enough tools and equipment to prop the hitch in a manner in which he could manage by himself. 36633
Super Easy Install This fit like a glove on '05 Town and country. Super snug fit, but all the holes lined up perfectly. Not a single skinned knuckle. 1425
