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 - 2011 Chevrolet Traverse - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2011 Chevy Traverse, we'll be installing the draw tite hitch, part number 75528. This is what our hitch will look like once it's installed. Next we're going to give you a couple measurements, this will assist you with selecting accessories such as a ball mount, bike rack or cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper, 7 inches. From the top of the receiver tube opening to the ground is 18 inches. Now we'll go ahead with the installation. To begin an install, we'll first go ahead and remove the rear facure cover.

To remove it, we'll turn the tabs to release them. Then pull down on the facure to remove it. We're going to set it aside, as it will be reinstalled. Next, we'll need to lower the exhaust. To safely lower the exhaust, we're going to put a safety strap underneath it first to help support the weight once we remove the rubber isolaters from the metal hangers.

First we'll spray them with some spray lubricant. Then use our pry bar or pliers to remove the rubber isolaters. Then we can use the safety strap to safely lower the exhaust. We'll go ahead and point out the attachment points. We have a total of 6 attachment points, 2 in each frame rail which are weld nuts built into the frame by the manufacturer, and 2 in the cross tube for center support that are pre-drilled, but are not weld nuts. Before we in step 00:01:33 to install the new weld nut hardware, we'll want to clean out each one of them first, because over time they build up with rust, dust, dirt and debris.

We'll spray each one with some spray lubricant, and then clean it out with a half inch nylon tube brush, part number 814092. Once it's thoroughly cleaned out, we'll go ahead and take one of the new fasteners and thread it in the weld nut to make sure it goes nice and easily. Now with all the weld nuts cleaned out, we're ready to install the hitch. It's a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you hold the hitch while you install the fasteners. The weld nuts will each get a new 12mm bolt along with a half inch conical tooth washer. Again, the teeth of the washer will face the hitch.

Once we install the 4 frame fasteners finger-tight, we'll move to the center support and the 2 attachment points there. We'll go ahead and put our block in position over the hitch, and then go ahead and put the bolt up through the hitch, through the block, into the center support, and feed our handle into position. The handle nut can be modified to make it easy to go over the attachment point. We'll simply take the handle nut, bend it, and then feed it into position through the access hole. Now with the handle nut over the attachment point, we'll go ahead and thread the bolt into it. The teeth of the washer facing the hitch. Now we'll go ahead and repeat the same process on the other side. With all our fasteners in place, we'll now go ahead and tighten them down. You can use a pair of cutters to clip off the ends of the handle nuts. You can use cutters to push the leftover into the car to avoid sharp edges. Next, we'll torque to specifications as indicated instructions. With everything torqued down, we'll now go ahead and reinstall the exhaust. At this point we can reinstall the facure if we wanted to cover up the hitch, or we could leave it off if we want to leave the hitch exposed. With that, we're now ready to hit the road. That does it for the install, the Draw Tite 2 inch receiver tube hitch, part number 75528 on our 2011 Chevy Traverse. .

This was an amazing deal and an amazing product. I received my package on time and installed it the next day. The hitch installed very easy. I was impressed with the fact that the install videos were linked with my receipt and I used them to install the hitch from my cell phone under the vehicle. The hitch fit like it was supposed to and tucks up inside the bumper like a factory hitch. Very pleased with the whole process from buying, to receiving and to installing. Would buy from these guys again and again. Thank you for a great experience 571218

The hitch is great. Hides nicely under the factory plate. They wrapped the bolts and hardware to the hitch so even though the box broke open during shipping. I still got all the hardware I was supposed to. 679546

I was impressed with the quality of the product. I was dreading trying to get the nuts in place for the bumper bolts. I was surprised to see two nuts with metal straps included in the hardware. It was very easy to place the nuts into their proper place and complete the process. That was a perfect solution. Installation took a little longer because i had to clean up the rusted frame threads. Too bad GM doesn't put plastic caps into the threads to keep them from rusting beyond use. Otherwise I am thoroughly pleased with the hitch, mounting instructions and the ease of installation. 435957

2010 Saturn Outlook

I purchased this hitch for my 2010 Saturn Outlook to haul our Boy Scout Troop's trailer for an upcoming campout. I watched the video associated with the product a few times before the hitch came so that I knew how to install it. The suggested install time said 45 minutes, but it took me over 3 hours. However, this was not the fault of the hitch, it was due to me not realizing there were 2 gaskets instead of 1 to lower my 2 mufflers, installing this by myself (it got heavy holding it up by myself), and mainly to having 7 years worth of rust, dirt and debris in the bolt holes under my vehicle. It took me a long time to get the bolts started in the holes. I ended up going to an auto parts store to get some rust removal and more spray lubricant. After I had ordered the hitch, I saw a recommendation for a wire brush. I REALLY wish I had ordered it. The auto parts store I went to did not have one. After a lot of trying to muscle the bolts on, what finally worked was spray a lot of rust removal in the hole. Then I sprayed a lot of spray lubricant in the hole and on the bolt. Once I got the bolt started, I tightened the bolt until it stopped moving. I then removed the bolt, wiped off all the rust on the bolt, re-lubricated the bolt and put it on again going further than the previous time. I repeated this step many times for each of the 4 bolts. It took me 2 hours to figure out this procedure. As soon as I did, the hitch went on easily. It fit the mountings perfectly and looks great. Once I figured out how to clean out the rust and get a good thread going, it went on easily. The directions and video were excellent. I would recommend this hitch to anyone looking for one and tell them to buy the recommended wire brush, take their time to work through the rust, and use a lot of spray lubricant. 409035

Unbelievable service/support!. Let's start with shipping...2 1/2 days, delivered a whole day ahead of estimated arrival date. Product - superb. Didn't make the 1/2 install time on the hitch as I was working by myself (that sucker is heavy!) and when I went to lower the dual exhaust, got one of the hangers but not the other. Found this out when I went back to put the one I took off back on. My bad. So I was still able to install the hitch but couldn't get my torque wrench in there to do it proper. Will have to go back and do again but I was still able to install tightly to tow a little 4' X 7' utility trailer no sweat. Will probably have the hitch welded to the frame since its hidden when not in use. Electrical Install....another piece of cake with one minor exception. The directions indicated to attach the black wire coming from the battery to the RED wire coming out of the module. There is no RED wire coming out of the module, it's black also. My knowledge of DC wiring told me to go with it. I did, everything worked great. As previously reported, the green wire going to the passenger side was a little short (probably due to my routing) but the black wire going to the battery was about a foot long (I liked that)! I'm not real happy about my routing so I will go back and redo when I get the hitch welded. I want a really good job and the initial install I was under to gun to rush the job so I had to take a couple of harmless shortcuts. When I do the redo, I'll document for etrailer.com, they are most deserving in my book! I most strongly recommend these folks at etrailer.com. In fact, I need to go back to them for the 4 wire flat connector bracket and their 2" ball. Was in too much of a rush this go-around. . 148764

I bought the Draw-Tite Class III 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver for my '12 Chevy Traverse. I got it for one main reason, a new hitch mounted bike carrier. I was a little nervous about ordering it, because I was worried about the fit, and I don't have any experience with trailer hitches. Prior to ordering it, I did a little research on the website. I plugged in the year, make and model of my car, and the site gave me a few options for custom fit hitch receivers. I picked the one that I wanted, and then I looked over the instructions, Q&A, and watched the installation video. The video is what really swayed me, it looked really simple! I was right. When the hitch receiver arrived, I was surprised at how light it was, it was lighter than my bike carrier! I will say that the included instructions are a bit lacking. I think some larger and more clear pictures with the appropriate step would be helpful. Thankfully, the website does a fantastic job with the installation instructions, and again, the video was a HUGE help! When I first tried to install it, I couldn't get the appropriate bolts into the weld nuts. I had cleaned them with some WD-40 and a wire brush, or so I thought. I thought that I was sent the wrong size bolt because the teeth would not even grab into the weld nut, and it just kept spinning; I was aggravated at the thought of waiting for replacement parts. But, I went back to the website and looked a little further into the Q&A section, and I found another video on cleaning the weld nuts. In the video, it described my exact issue, and even explained that despite one's belief that the bolts would not fit the weld nuts, 99% of the time the weld nuts were not thoroughly cleaned out. Well, guess what? I went back to cleaning the weld nuts, and after a total of roughly 4hrs and some serious elbow grease and a full can of WD-40, I had cleaned out the weld nuts enough so that the bolts fit with ease! My '12 Traverse has about 37K miles on it, so there was a lot of rust and grime in there. After getting the weld nuts clean, the actual installation of the hitch receiver took me maybe 45mins. And I had no issues with installing it by myself. I did have to lower my spare tire in order to get my torque wrench in there, but other than that there were no major issues. I can't imagine paying a couple hundred $$ extra to have a professional install this. Even if someone had absolutely no mechanical ability whatsoever, they could install this themselves; just watch the video and follow the instructions. Honestly, I think I've had more difficulty in helping my kids build their LEGO sets, than I did installing this hitch! I would highly recommend etrailer.com to anyone looking for a hitch, and I am extremely pleased with the ease of the entire process, from finding the right product to delivery to installation. Although I didn't deal directly with customer service, I'm sure that if you can't find an answer to your question on the website itself, someone from customer service would certainly be able to help you. Thank you etrailer! 261694

Its been a year since my purchase, installation, and initial review. I have had no issues with the hitch and no complaints. I will definitely be looking at Etrailer should I need any other trailer hitches, parts or accessories!

Ordering from Etrailer was easy and with free shipping, can't go wrong. This trailer hitch was easily installed and works great. Installed in less than 15min on a 2014 Traverse. I do not know about other hitches, but what is nice about this one, is the hitch sits well up under the vehicle, so the same plastic hitch cover that came with the vehicle can still be used. I was somewhat expecting to have to purchase the alternate cover which has extension for the hitch receiver or leave the hitch visible. The wife was pleased, that the hitch was not visible. 141031

Keith, which hitch did you buy and what model Traverse do you have? Where does one buy the alternative cover?

Keith ordered the Draw-Tite Max-Frame hitch, part # 75528 from us for his 2014 Traverse. There are alternate covers from GM, but whether you'd need one would be dependent on year and which model. This hitch fits Traverse, Outlook, Enclave and Acadia.

One of my key concerns was that several vendors apparently ship these trailer hitches unwrapped and without a box. I was pleased to find that the hitch was nicely packaged with the parts nicely secured. I found the video very helpful, and I completed the installation in less than an hour. Using a ratchet strap to secure the mufflers made the job quite simple. I did have help holding up one side of the hitch while I started the bolts, but other than that it was largely a solo effort. My Enclave has only been through one winter, and the bolts threaded in after minimal cleaning the threads with a shot of WD40. The four rubber muffler hangers popped off without use of lubricant or a pry bar. Oh, by the way I took advantage of the low price guarantee. Etrailer provided the price difference plus 10% before the item even shipped. I almost felt guilty about getting a credit when I found a lower price from a lesser vendor. Etrailer has been extremely responsive, and I couldn't be happier with the whole experience. 202383

I went back and refreshed my memory last years review, and I am still satisfied today. The hitch looks the same as when I installed it a year ago.It was a great value and buying experience, and if I am in the market for trailer accessories, I will be back.I think that the etrailer business model of including customer comments and informative installation videos would translate well to other parts markets.

This is was the first towing hitch I have installed. Installation was easier than I thought, took about an hour and a half including, gathering of tools and exhaust system cooling time and a single set of hands. What I liked about the hitch receiver were the tolerances to which it was made, it had very little movement at the time of adjustment for final torquing of bolts. Also, once the factory hitch cover goes back on, there is no way to tell if one is on. The only problem is that if you have a cargo carrier to use like mine, it is difficult to insert a keyed locking pin as there were only about 5 inches to work with, still recommend. This was installed on a 2014 Traverse. The videos on Etrailer are extremely helpful, I felt more comfortable doing the install by myself. Saved me at least $200. 144395

2017 Chevy Traverse Super easy installation. I was able to install it myself. There were a few issues I had to overcome however: 1. Getting the plug into the wire harness underneath the vehicle took quite a bit of time as it is very hard to get to. I ended up having my wife help me by pulling the plastic body piece out so I could get my arm in to reach it better. 2. The YouTube video is very helpful for the most part however, There is a discrepancy between the directions that came with the wiring harness and the fuses/relays that were included. Follow the instructions that come with the harness and it will be alright. Do not rely on the Youtube video for this portion of the install. 3. The plug connector that attaches to the hitch itself needs a mounting bracket that IS NOT included with the hitch. The bracket is easily found at an automotive parts store but take the connector with you to make sure it fits properly onto the bracket. Other than these minor (and somewhat confusing) issues this tow package was easy to install and it is VERY well built. 572927

The the 4-pole wiring bracket you need to attach to the existing bracket on this hitch is part Item # 18144. If you need a bracket for a 7 way plug I recommend part # PK12711U.

No problem putting on the Hitch our 2012 Enclave. My wife did not want the hitch to show. Done some research and found that GM has a fisacia insert that takes the place of the one you remove. GM part # 25775358. A little pricey but worth it. 107818

Just got a 2014 Enclave. Thinking to buy the same hitch. Based on the video, it seems the orig. rear fascia door can be re-installed back. Why did you not put back the orig. one? Its not possible or you dont like the orig. fascia style? Or, only 20132014 enclave fascia door can be reinstalled? Thanks.

Tom, I think part of your response got cut off. The Enclave received a bit of a facelift for the 2013 model year and the changes to rear bumper cover allow for the original cover to be re-installed over a hitch on 2013 and newer. 2012 and older models require a different panel to accommodate a hitch.

You are correct, or at least that was my understanding from Pecks Trailer Hlitch installation. I just know my fascia would not go back on, the hitch is very hard to see anyway Just my wifes car and she did not want the hitch to show.

Ok, now down to the meat of my install. After carefully chasing the four weld nuts and fighting an exhaust system that would not cooperate, my son and I got this bad boy up in no time. Despite the fact that it was 98 degrees that day! It fit perfectly. The only issue was finding the torque specs which we found printed on the back of what appeared to be the French version of the install instructions. Still give five stars! The help I received ordering all my parts over the phone was second to none! Even considering it was a Saturday! Thanks to everyone involved!!! 567385

I received this Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" back in December and just installed it yesterday. The hitch came with all mounting hardware including instructions. I went online to review the install video which I recommend to any DIY's it was very helpful. It took more than the 45 minutes that was quoted but that was because of the factory frame nuts were rusted and trying to tap them was difficult because the exhaust would only drop a few inches. All in all it was a fairly easy project for a 68 year old to accomplish. I would recommend this product. 664922

2012 GMC Acadia

I received the hitch in the mail a few days ago, and I must first say that the packaging was very good. The hitch was well protected and boxed up nicely, with no loose parts anywhere. The instructions were fairly easy to follow and installation took about 1 hour. It could have taken less time if I had a lower profile torque wrench. The distance between the top of the muffler and the bolt was less than 2" and the height of my torque wrench and socket were more than that. So, in my case, it took me hanging on the muffler to make enough room to get the wrench in between to tighten the bolts to specification. As I said before, I didn't have the proper tool so I used what I had. For the 2012 GMC Acadia, the installation used 6 bolts, 6 cone washers, 2 spacers, and 2 handle nuts. The plastic bumper cover and the rubber muffler vibration mounts are the only things that need to be removed for the installation. Overall, it seems like a well-built trailer hitch. I look forward to many years of use! 70641

Researched the product as well as the company. I was satisfied with my decision and also reviewed videos for installation and additional items I may need to purchase. Made the purchase and I was immediately contacted to inform me my order was being processed and shortly after, I was notified the items had shipped. I was told when to expect the shipment. From the first keystroke of the order until the final turn of the installation, everything was first class and exactly as advertised. Items arrived on time, the fit was right on and would recommend etrailer and Draw-Tite to all. 568541

I ordered the hitch at 6pm on a Monday and it arrived at 2pm on a Thursday via standard UPS delivery. This installation was a snap. I set my laptop up in the back of our 2011 Traverse, watched the installation video and had it on in about 30 minutes. We also purchased the 118450 wiring harness. My wife and I had a great time installing it together; again in about 45 minutes. Thanks "etrailer" for getting me the correct parts (so quickly) and for producing the fantastic install videos! 54619

This product is exactly what it advertises. Extremely easy to install. This is on a 2015 GMC Acadia. Solid piece. There are pre-drilled holes in the Acadia, so it takes the guess work away. You just have to move the 1 rubber piece holding the muffler for easier access. Other then that, it's easy. Highly recommended this product. 512340

The online purchasing process could not be any easier through etrailer. I also received emails from etrailer when the product was shipped and they even sent me an email once they were informed that the product had been delivered to my house. Pretty impressive. The packaging of the product was exactly what I would expect. Many reviews from others had mentioned suppliers that have shipped their product without any boxing material and the product showing up being damaged and parts missing. etrailer packages their products in a very durable packing box, the product is mobilized with additional packing material inside to prevent dings and damage, and all of the mounting hardware and instructions are sealed in a bag. Assembly could not be easier. eTrailer has created a great You Tube video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mEqrluxIw5o which made installation a breeze after watching this. I had my 4 yr old daughter help me with the installation (She held up one side of the hitch while I started the bolts on the other side), I dropped the muffler for easier access to the vehicle’s frame mounting holes on one side, and I used the handle nuts that were provide by etrailer to install the bolts through the predrilled holes in my Acadia which made the rear bolt install quite easy. The hitch fit perfectly without any interference and the 2016 Acadia's cover also fits back on my vehicle to hide everything while the hitch is not in use. I timed the entire installation process and it only took me 16 minutes and 10 seconds. etrailer provided clearance measurements for the mounting of accessories which gave me confidence that my cargo carrier would fit. My cargo carrier fits into the hitch perfectly, there is ample clearance between my carrier and my vehicle, and there is enough clearance around the hitch to use a locking hitch pin. You really cannot beat the quality of this product, the easy of ordering from etrailer, the efficient and professional shipping process that etrailer has created, and the ease of installation for this product. 400626

I received the hitch, ball mount and wiring for my 2012 Acadia within just a couple of days after placing the order. The entire order was well packed in very heavy cardboard and was still in good condition upon arrival. I finally got around to putting it on today and as some others have indicated taking loose the muffler hangers and reinstalling them is probably the worst part of the job. I used some of my wifes vegetable spray and that helped a great deal. I did need my wife to help hold up on the hitch as I got the bolts started so we made a family project out of it. 74966

Yes, we still like that the hitch has the capability of being hidden withthe optional cover that we purchased for our 2012 Acadia. We will be using it again shortly to trailer our golf cart up to the campgrounds.

Like many others stated, super easy installation of the hitch. Only took me about 30 min by myself. It took me about an hour for the wiring harness and bracket since I had to find another bolt and nut since it only came with 3. The thing that gave me the most trouble was the wiring harness. I couldn't bring the cannon plug down towards me at all so I had to do it all by feel. The mounting bracket for the wiring harness I chose to flip upside down and bend towards the rear of the car and down so I could hide the wiring and hitch completely. The other reason was because I didn't want the bracket to catch on anything because it was lower than the bumper. I ordered the supplies on Fri and they were here mid day the following Tuesday. With all the great videos, a job that might have taken me 4-5 hours only took 2 hours plus knowing where the cannon plug was helped tremendously. If I hadn't known where it was I would have prob had to do a splice job. This job, in my opinion, looks professional. Thanks ETRAILER. 399633

Perfect fit on GMC acadia 2008. Easy to install, thanks to the instructional videos. Distance from center of 5/8 pinhole to farthest part of bumber is around 5 inches. There is also a 1/2 hole. Arrived on time. Perfect fit with mounting bracket 18144. Wiring harness 118451 was also easy to install. 39220

The hitch itself was an easy install. It is a well made hitch. Unfortunately the welded nuts on my Traverse had a lot of corrosion and it took me about 45 min. to clean out the threads before I could install the hitch. Thank you etrailer.com. They did a great job getting my hitch to me very quickly. 726591

We live in a very rural area and we needed something to carry a large ice chest for those monthly trips to town, this puts the ice chest outside making it very easy to access and if there are any water leaks it’s not in the car making a mess.

Great product. Came in the mail quick and with no issues. Easy install. All the predrilled holes lined up and fit perfectly. Great recessed hitch, can't tell it's on my Buick Enclave with the bumper piece attached. The only I wish came with it was the wiring harness. Had to buy it separate, but happy with both products from e-trailer. 696958

The hitch fit right up to the existing factory frame mounting holes. The vehicle was three years old when the hitch was added so I ran a tap through the vehicles mounting threads to clean corrosion. The hitch is solid, accepts a 2” receiver well and pulls well. The mounting pad for the wiring socket is a nice touch to keep the installation tidy. 695583

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Trailer Wiring Needed for 2017 Chevy Traverse with Rear Air Conditioning Unit
  • Since your 2017 Chevrolet Traverse does not have the factory connector but does have a rear air conditioning unit I recommend first checking to see if you have the factory tow package. You can locate the plug for the Tekonsha T-One # 118270 at the rear passenger side as is shown in the attached installation video. If you don't have the factory tow package then you will want to go with the Hopkins # HM11141150. I spoke with my contact at Hopkins who said that he hasn't heard of having...

The wiring mount part # 18144 will also give you a place to mount the 4-way that bolts to the bumper. The ball mount part # C45036 that you referenced is would also work well if you need 2 inch drop.

  • Recommended Towing Components for 2015 to 2017 Chevy Traverse
  • The 2015 through 2017 Chevy Traverse models have a towing capacity of 2,000 lbs with the V6 3.6L. If you were to purchase the models with the factory tow package (all except the LS base model), the capacity increases to 5200 lbs according to the manufacturer. The tow package includes the trailer hitch and a heavy-duty cooling system. If you already have the non-tow package model, the manufacturer rating won't change because they didn't install the parts.
