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 - 2016 BMW X5 - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2016 BMW X5, we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Draw-Tite Class 3 Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver. This offers a 2-inch by 2-inch opening. It's part number is 75600. Here's what our hitch is going to look like installed on the vehicle. It's going to give us a really nice, clean look. Our cross tube is completely hidden.

We're just basically going to have our receiver tube that's hanging down, also our safety chain connection points you can see under here. These are going to be a rolled, steel style. We've got our 2-inch by 2-inch receiver tube opening, kind of has a rounded end on it there. It's going to be just inside the back of the bumper, so I don't think we really have to worry about hitting our feet on it or hitting our legs on it, or anything when we walk by. You'll see we've got our double pin hole setup here. Now, the larger one closer to the front of the vehicle, this is going to be for securing any of our items, whether we're using a pin and clip, anti-rattle device, locking hitch pin.

It looks like they're all going to fit in here without any interference. Our rear hole here, this isn't for securing any items other than using the J-pin stabilization system, if you decide to go that route. As far as tow ratings go, we're going to have a 600-pound towing weight capacity. That's going to be the maximum downward force we can put on our receiver tube opening and it's going to offer us a 6000 pound gross trailer weight rating. It's going to be the total weight of our trailer and then anything that we've got loaded on it.

Of course, we do need to look into the owner's manual of the X5 to see what it's tow rating is and we'll just go off of whichever of those are the lowest. A couple of measurements that you're going to find helpful in selecting your ball mount, bike rack, or hitch cargo carrier. From the ground to the inside top edge of our receiver tube opening, we've got about 13 1/2 inches. Then from the center of our hitch pin hole to the outer most edge of our bumper, it's about 2 1/4. Then to begin our installation, we've got three rivets right here in our wheel well, and we need to go ahead and drill those out on the passenger's side and we'll do the same thing for the driver's side. We want to gently pull out on our wheel well molding here.

You can kind of see the three locking tabs there that you'll want to release, and if we'll look just below that top one, we can see that fascia bolt that we'll need to remove. We'll go to the driver's side and do the same thing there. We'll have the six fascia screws on the under side to take out. We'll have one here, just behind the wheel well and then there's going to be two on the very back. They'll be in the exact same location on our passenger's side. Next up is going to be to remove the reflector that we've got on each side here in the back. See, right up here in the back side of the bumper, there's a little metal clip. We need to push that side out and it should slide on out. You can see that little clip right here. There's also a tab here, but usually when that one's removed that one will come right out. If we look behind our reflector, we're going to see a small screw. We'll have one on each side that we'll remove. Now it's time to open up the back hatch here. We want to pull this panel out, just kind of pull out, pull it over, and if we look behind this insulation material here, we're going to have a plug and two nuts that are on studs that stick out. That's what's holding the tail light in place. Let's go ahead and remove those. You can see our long, black plug here. Right in the center, you want to press in and then just wiggle it, you'll be able to pull it out. Then we want to take the two nuts off. Then we want to just pull out loosely right here on this edge, you can get your finger on there. We'll be able to slide that right back and off. Pretty straightforward, pretty simple. The reason we removed those though was so we can then remove this screw that's right here. With those removed on each side, I'm going to use just a cam buckle strap and I want to hold my door up at about a 45-degree angle. Hook it like that. Then we'll get an extra set of hands and start working from the outside to the inside, and try to remove this lower fascia. As we do, we want to be sure we disconnect any electrical connections that exist on the back so we don't pull them apart. If any of your tabs fight you along the way, you can just use a screwdriver and press down on that center section, and that'll release them for you. If you do have a backup sensor, you'll separate this by squeezing the top and bottom of the plug together. Then to separate this plug, we need to press the tab that's on the bottom and also on the top. We'll want to loosen the black caps that over the upper bolts. This is going to be just below the bottom portion of the gate. Just so we don't cause any issues here, what we're going to do, we've got a sensor here on the back, I'm going to unplug it and then there's just a couple little clips here that hold this wire up. We're going to unclip it all the way across and I just want to remove this fastener that holds it into the end of this rear impact bar. We're going to be pulling that down just to put our hitch up behind it, we don't want to cause any damage. There we go, that'll give us the room we need. Now we're just going to remove the four nuts on each side here. We'll leave one on there, just thread it a little bit, that way it'll give us support while we remove our other side. All right, now we'll just pull straight out on it and then lower it straight down. Now we'll raise our hitch into position and all we have to do is rest it up on those bolts. All right, now we'll place our impact bar back on, then we'll start putting our nuts back in position. We'll use the two tabs here to make sure that we've got our hitch centered on our vehicle. Then we're ready to snug those fasteners down, then torque them down to the specifications that we find in our instructions. We're going to do the same thing over here on the passenger side. At this point, you'll want to test fit your fascia and see if it needs to be trimmed or not. We want to mark the center of our fascia and from there we need to measure out four inches each way and also two inches up. Then that square, that's the area that we want to remove. We'll just want to take our utility knife and just score this a few times. If we take our time, it'll eventually work through. All right, now before we put our fascia on, let's run our sensor wire back over to its plugin. All right, now we need to start fitting our fascia back into place. Remember, we're going to reconnect anything that we disconnected. We want to kind of pull out on our trim panel there to allow it to fit back in behind it. Now we can start going around and just putting our fasteners back in where we took them out of. Then we can do the three on the other side and also the six on the bottom. With all of our hardware tightened down, we'll get our reflectors back in, get those lined up and then push them until you hear that snap. Now we can slide our tail light housings back into place. Re-secure them with the two nuts. Over here, we can just plug our lights back in. Cover back in and also replaced our panel. Now it's time to snap our wheel well trim back into place there. This mat or this fender lining should go behind there so if it's popped out, just push it back around. Then in each of our hole locations, we're going to place in the plastic rivet, then we'll grab our rivet setting tool and just like that, it'll hold it nice and secure. With our fascia back in place, that's going to complete today's installation of the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Custom Fit Class 3 Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 75600 on our 2016 BMW X5.

This etrailer video (https://www.etrailer.com/tv-install-trailer-hitch-2017-bmw-x5-75600.aspx) for this product made what would have been a very difficult process for somebody unfamiliar with removal of the trim/fascia on the X5 very straightforward. The video was far more important and accurate than the Draw-Tite instructions and not only drastically cut the install time for me, it probably saved me from damaging the vehicle and fascia connection points. The filming and mech/technician who did this video were outstanding in every respect! 556650

This trailer hitch is a great fitting product. But the VIDEOS on etrailer's website were amazing. This made it possible for me to install myself on our 2009 bmw x5. I would not have been able to install without tearing stuff up, without the great videos. I am halfway technical and can do a lot on cars. But figuring out fender rivets, and body panel clips is a new challenge. I was worried I would break a part, scratch some paint, or not be able to do it in a decent amount of time. But with etrailers videos and awesome product this went great. One suggestion; I cut an 8" wide x 2 1/4" deep area when removing material from my bumper cover as suggested on the video. It seemed like the bumper cover was flexing around the hitch. So I had to remove it, and cut another 1/2". I would recommend cutting 2 3/4" of plastic out the first time to make it a more efficient process for installation and fitting. I have been a long time customer due to their customer service. And the receiver hitch that fit perfect an excellent experience all around. 386375

Easy install on my 2015 X-5. The video was key. I had the iPad in the garage with me. It shows all the nuts, bolts and connectors. I finished in about 2 1/2 hours. The other reviews are right about the plastic rivets. The wheel well piece snaps back on but I still need to go to dealer to get the right rivets. I haven't towed my boat yet, but the way this bolted on I'm sure it won't be a problem. 643713

Paper and video instructions provided were very helpful. The hardest part during installation was to take off the slim side fender on the M-Sport X5. It says to pull gently but you really have to pull away with pressure but carefully. Overall very easy to install with basic tools in garage. 555364

Installed on 2017 X5 i35 MSport package. Arrived faster than expected, and in perfect condition. Printed and video instructions are outstanding. Completely installation in 2.5 hour. Purchased the tools I need with the savings - a bonus for sure. Picked up a nice torque wrench for $50, a plastic rivet gun and rivet puller for $35, Bmw OEM plastic rivets; 10 for $8 (totally not needed, the hitch comes with good plastic rivets). Take your time, watch the video a few times , use the right tools, and you won’t have an issue. I did not have cut the bumper at all. The fit is perfect and the bumper does not come in contact with the hitch at all. As well, the video is spot on. My only real tip is to go slowly. Be super careful with the bumper sensor connector. I accidentally broke one of the tabs. It absolutely had no impact on reconnecting it. Other than that, have an extra set of hands ready for the pulling and refitting of bumper. etrailer has put a lot of thought in to making the process as easy as possible. Best of luck - you can do this. 511727

Your trailer hitch and wiring harness for my 2015 BMW X-5 worked perfectly, and it was a fraction of the cost I would have spent at the BMW dealership. It took my personal mechanic just over 2 hours to install. Your product does not mess with the BMW Computer and does not need to reprogram. EXCELLENT!!! I would purchase this item again in a heartbeat. 653251

I would have given 5 stars except for the plastic rivets. Nobody has the special plastic rivet tool in my town. I looked at 4 different auto parts and hardware stores. I own a rivet tool but the size of the shaft of the rivets provided do not fit any of the multiple sizes available on the tool I own. I will go to the auto parts store and purchase an alternative to the rivets. Also, I own a 2011 BMW X5 and the cutout suggested in the video, 8"x2" did not work. I had to cut out the plastic to 8"x2 1/2". Other than that, it was an easy installation. 662474

Bought the hitch and wiring harness from etrailer.com last year, and following their excellent video installation instructions, was able to complete the installation in only a couple of hours. (Would take about half that time to do it again, always worried about breaking something!) Everything has worked flawlessly, and we have been completely satisfied with the purchase and support. Will definitely return the next time we're in the market for hitch related products. 515247

If your contemplating on which hitch to get, The Draw-Tite, Reece and Hidden Hitch are identical. Mine actually had a sticker with both names on it. Like others have said, the powder coat chips easily, mine had minor chips from shipping. This didn't bother me, before I installed it, I coated the entire hitch with 1 Qt. Herculiner Bed Liner. If your worried about long term use and rust, coat it with a rubber compound. Installation took 1/2 day. Hardest part was removing and re-installing the fascia (plastic bumper). I had to trim a 2"x8" of the lower fascia. Hitch looks nice on my 2011 BMW X5 35d and 1/4 the cost of the dealership. Works with rear sensors and the screw in attachments are still available. 36764

Very quick delivery from etailer for Drawtite 75600. Installation videos and written instructions were extremely helpful and key to success. Although not specific to my 2015 BMW X5, they allowed me to prepare and then install the hitch in 3 hours. Fit was perfect and did not require cutting the bumper fascia. An indentation was already formed in the bumper to clear the hitch. Access to a poly riveter and per-purchasing BMW replacement rivets facilitated rapid completion. 196864

Which trim package did you get on your X5? I ordered a 2015 X5 35d with the M Trim package so Im worried it will require cutting the actual bumper. My 2013 35d had the hitch installed at the dealership, and they cut a large square out of my bumper itself since the OEM hitch comes straight out instead of dipping below the number.

What was different from your 2015 install process vs what is in the video for the 2012 anything else I should know before starting on my 2015 x5?Also how was the reassembly there is not much mention of that part of the process.

I do not recall anything much different from the video, other than not needing to make any trimming adjustments to the bumper. Having a second person available to assist in getting the hitch initially aligned when installing helped. Pretty straight forward.

The hitch has been used many times over this past year with an attached racktaking bikes from Virginia to North Carolina and Florida. It has weatherwell with no signs of corrosion and has remained well secured to my X5. Thank you for a great product,

Smooth install! 2008 BMW X5 Only one minor change in the instructions, the bumper fascia trimming needed to be about 3" deep instead of the 2 inches indicated in the included instructions. I should however mention the my X5 has the M package which has a slightly different rear bumper fascia and the extra trimming may be unique to the M but I'm not sure. see pictures looking up at the hitch that show the required trimming. The trimming is not visible unless you look at it from a vantage point that is below the level of the bumper. I am very happy with the look and ease of install. 285369

Installed it on my 2014 BMW X5 with M-Sport package. I was concerned because many hitch sites claim you have to trim the bumper to make it fit. With this hitch I had to do no such thing. It was easy to install. I would have liked to see slightly rounded corners on the flat plate above the receiver as they are a little sharp and would look cleaner with a slight roundness. Like most hitches, it clunks a little when the trailer is hooked up, would be nice to see some kind of rubber insert to fill any gaps between the receiver and the hitch. Overall, I'd recommend the hitch. 502475

I chose the Drawtite hitch because it retains use of the rear emergency tow eyes. Have a few installation pointers that will make it easier for the next guy. I have a 2011 X5 with the Sport Package and back up sensors. The instructions I received were Revision D, 3-27-2017. 1. (Step 1) Disconnecting the back up sensor require dainty but strong fingers. Also, the car side connector is held captive on the vehicle but must be relocated as it will get pinched hard when the hitch is installed. You can strap it up when you are done. Also, the harness is attached to the impact bar. Easy to pull off and reinstall. The routing of the harness with the hitch installed causes a rub point. I put split loom on the hitch and the harness to prevent chaffing. 2. (Step 1a) To remove the pop rivets, I found a sharp utility knife works best to cut the heads off. Make sure the remnants are pushed through before the bumper is reinstalled. Both the top ones were stuck and it would have been easier if I had noticed with the bumper off. I had to hold the new rivet pin with a utility knife between the rivet and the gun to hold it while getting the second grip on it with the rivet gun which barely fit with the tire on. Otherwise the pin will just push back into the hole. 3. (Step 1a) In the illustration, it points to a lower rivet at the wheel opening and states: "Do Not remove Plastic pop rivets". On mine they were reusable push pins and they had to be removed to get the bumper cover off. 4. (Step 1b) To remove the wheel well molding, pull straight away from the vehicle. 5. (Step 1f) I used two flat screw drivers to pop the four retaining tabs under the tailgate. It's a lot easier if you align these as you put the bumper back on - not wait until the sides are buttoned up - experience talking here. 6. (Step 1g) At the tail lights, the tab release is on the bottom (photo #1707). There are three nuts (8mm socket) holding the tail lights on. 7. (Step 1h) To remove the forward portion of the bumper cover, pull the leading edge away and you'll see three locking tabs at the horizontal gap that if you hit them with a thin trim tool, they'll release easily. (photo #1705) 8. (Step 2) It is a good idea to remove the plastic trim piece above the impact bar. The impact bar will hang up on it when it comes out. It will also hang up when you reinstall and in my case, I cracked it when the impact bar caught it as I was bolting it all together. You can see the impact bar sit up into a hole of the piece in photo 1708. Apply lube to the studs before removing nuts. I had three that came off hard, one terribly so until I ran it back tight an added lube. The plastic decorative covers on the impact bar studs do not grip well or at all with the added hitch thickness. I cleaned the bolts off with brake clean and used RTV to hold in place 9. (Step 6) The drawing states to cut a 2" deep 8" wide clearance slot in the rear fascia for hitch clearance but I ended up with 2.5" and it was just right. At two inches the lower fascia pops out of the bumper cover. Hope this helps! 636455

Searched for a hitch that did not require a visible section of the bumper fascia to be cut out of the X5. This hitch did not and tucks neatly under the fascia. You rated the installation difficulty 9/10, and I believe this was accurate. Fit and finish was great. Not a fan of having the connection to the trailer a long cord that hangs out the tail gate when in use. I routed the wire down to the hitch before re-installing the bumper fascia and attached it with a bracket. Installation and wiring videos are excellent and key to the success for the DIY individual. Upon ordering, etrailier reported the hitch was in stock, but this turned out to not be the case. Etrailer customer service were great at keeping me informed and minimized the delay. Well done! 101240

I am curious...You mentioned not having to cut the fascia but the instructions state that it needs to be cut. Can you help me understand if the instructions are wrong or if different year or trim of the car makes a difference? Thanks

The visible section of the bumper fascia does not need to be trimmed, which is what Greg mentioned in his review. There is an under-fascia that is below the bumper and not really visible when standing. It is attached to the bumper cover, but is a separate piece that is not the same color as the rest of the body. This piece will need to be trimmed. You can see the procedure starting at about the 4:50 mark in the video.

First, I want to thank you for your custom service support. It's nice to know that in an industry flooded with choices, you recognize the importance of customer support. Now for my critique… The hitch was installed as per the instructions however I have two suggestions. 1) The decorative crash bar nut covers (depicted in the attached photo) would not screw back on either because the lack of ample threads due to the hitch being installed and required RTV to reattach. 2) There is no place to secure the wire harness (w/o purchasing your extra bracket) however I was able to stuff the harness (folded on itself) in the square tubing on the back side of the hitch as depicted in the attached photo. Putting a trailer hitch on some vehicles should not require exposed bracketry and wire harnesses but rather an inconspicuous add-on to maintain the as much of the ascetics and beauty of that vehicle which separates a "quality kit" from those installed from the "shop down the road". 482367

For 2015 BMW X5: Great product. Excited to start hooking things up to haul, like my bike rack. Installation was tedious, but the installation video was a tremendous help. Overall it took probably 5 hours to do it myself, I only needed my kids at one point to help me lift the hitch onto the frame from the low angle, but otherwise I was pretty proud of myself for doing it on my own. There WERE some points where I definitely thought I had hit insurmountable challenges and nearly regretted my decision to do the install, but after some time, patience and elbow grease, I was successful in overcoming those obstacles. The rear sensor component plugged into the interior of the facia was a PAIN to remove. I eventually had to get under the vehicle and use needle nose pliers to fully pop open those tabs. You’ll need a deep 18mm socket to pull those lock nuts off. I even added a 6-in extension piece to ensure I could get in deep enough, and it just made clearance with about an inch or two to spare for non-issue rotation with your wrench. Some of those nuts were TOUGH to get off. I was worried I would encounter the same issue that many others had where they were forced to trim the underside of the facia to accommodate the hitch, but I did not have that issue. In fact, there was an indention there already, as if made for a hitch. Keep GOOD track of all your screws and parts. I drew out a diagram and placed all the pieces there to keep track. I didn’t have the luxury of having a second vehicle to make trips to the auto store, so I had to make sure I had everything I needed before pulling the vehicle apart. Otherwise, seemingly great product. Great build. Very excited to start hauling. Thank y’all so much for this inexpensive but quality product, and the work you put into making those instructional videos. Great company. 479018

I am mechanically inclined (thanks dad!) and so after finding out that my local Uhaul would charge $225 to install a hitch not purchased from them, decided to just do it myself as I had originally planned when I bought this hitch from eTrailer.com. The most cringe-worthy part of this installation is that feeling of ripping the side of the rear bumper cover of your beautiful late model X5 apart and hearing those nasty popping sounds as evidenced in the video. Lest you feel you need to spend $150-$225 to have someone else install this hitch, I will attest to the fact that it is not that bad at all. If you change your own oil, rotate your own tires, or don't ever have to pause and recite "lefty loosey, righty tighty" then you're a great candidate to perform your own installation! The video was key to making this an easy installation. I put my laptop on a bench next to my car while I played/paused each step and simply followed along. The toughest part of the installation was unclipping the rear bumper sensor wiring harness. It just did not want to release. That took me a good 25 mins. This installation is definitely a two person job. I would never attempt this without a good helper with steady hands. A second person is definitely needed when realigning the rear bumper tabs with the rear bumper mounts and side mounts when buttoning everything back up. I had to cut out a little extra space in the lower rear bumper fascia to get everything to sit right. I have the X5 50i with M Sport Pkg, so the rear bumper has additional design features that I do not believe are shared with the other trim levels. Three test fits and it was good to go. The only thing I did not like about this kit was the supplied plastic rivets. The instructions call for a 5/32" rivet tool, which I have. The plastic rivets do not fit into the rivet tool. Not only that, but they did not actually fasten at all. I have to goto BMW tomorrow to buy OEM ones. Minor flaw, and I believe I read the other reviews with similar findings. No biggie, but it would be nice to have better quality rivets. I am very satisfied with this hitch and the installation instructions. Here are some pics of my bike rack installed in the hitch on my 2013 X5 50i M Sport. :) 343403

I fitted this on a 2016 X5 30d w/ M Sport Package. NO CUTTING of the fascia was necessary. I'm based in Hong Kong though, so not sure if the X5 here is slightly different in any way. LOVE the fact that etrailer.com has actual experts who know their stuff answering my most tedious questions, and to make me feel confident ordering something heavy like this from US. 269343

Well hidden, clean-looking design, and appears to be excellent quality. Provides very good clearance above concrete curbs (if backing up vehicle into a parking spot) even though it sits low beneath bumper. The 4-pin wiring could've been better concealed by installer, but they suggested I can zip-tie to hitch to hide from view. Looking forward to testing it out on the road soon. 657406

I just installed the Draw-tite hitch on a 2015 BMW X5 3.5i with the M-Sport package. The entire process took me less than two hours and there was no cutting required of the fascia. I chose the Draw-tite because I didn’t want to discard the original bumper structure. The video instructions on the etrailer website are extremely detailed and helpful. The receiver looks great and takes nothing away from the appearance of the vehicle. It fits snugly right up under the fascia. I will be connecting the wiring harness this weekend. 763440

Bought the 75600 Draw tight hitch for my 2014 BMW X5. Installed the wiring harness two week ago. The hitch install took about three hours total. Watched the install video. Make sure you take pictures as you go just in case you don't remember exactly how it goes back together. I was not able to remove the bumper completely away from the car. I was not able to remove the sensor plug and did not want to break it. I still was able still install the hitch. I did not have to trim the fascia it fit perfectly. The rubber protective covers that go over the top bolts need to be trimmed about 1/4" shorter so they stay on the bolts. Great product and install was easy. 762293

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2014 BMW X5
    You are correct. The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75600 requires you to temporarily remove the bumper/fascia on the 2014 BMW X5 but will allow you to re-install it once the hitch is in place. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13077, which is also confirmed to fit this vehicle, will not allow the bumper portion to be re-installed. I have also attached the written installation details for both hitches so you can see exactly what each entails. For your 2014 BMW X5, I do...

  • Recommended 4-Way Trailer Connector Mount for Hidden Crossbar Trailer Hitch
    The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 75600 for your 2018 BMW X5 does not have a designated mounting location for your 4-way trailer connector. So, for the ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness w/ 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector and Installation Kit # 119250KIT or # 119190KIT which are confirmed fit options you can run the 4-way connector out the same bumper hole as the hitch or create a separate hole. My recommendation is either use the...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2018 BMW X5 35D
    Starting with a trailer hitch for your 2018 BMW X5 35D I recommend the Curt Class III Round Tube Receiver Hitch # 13077. This Class III hitch is confirmed to fit your vehicle and will use existing holes in its frame for a no-drill installation. Just note though that some noticeable fascia trimming will be required. I have attached an installation video on the 2017 model BMW X5 that you can use for reference. All the needed hardware is included. Then for a trailer wiring harness I recommend...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2015 BMW X5 with the M sport package
    The restrictions are actually for the 2015 BMW X5 with the M Sport Package so yes in this case the restrictions will apply. Since the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75600 is not confirmed to fit your X5 with the M Sport Package I recommend going with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13077 which is confirmed to fit the M Sport Package. I confirmed this with my contact at Curt. An installation video is linked for you to reference as well as the instructions. If you let...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2017 BMW X5 M Sport
    The Curt Class III Round Tube Receiver Hitch # 13077 that you referenced is actually the only hitch available that is confirmed to fit your 2017 BMW X5 that has the M-Sport Package. The Draw-Tite hitch that you also mentioned is indeed designed for the BMW X5, but it will not fit the M model. You are correct that Curt does require that a stabilizing strap # 18050 be used with any non-trailer load like a bike rack. This isn't an indication of the strength of the hitch when compared to...

    If you have the 2015 BMW X5 40e (please let me know if you have a different model year) the Curt Round Tube Receiver Hitch # 13077 that you referenced is confirmed to fit but it will require fascia trimming during installation. This is the case with all of the trailer hitches available that are designed for your vehicle. This is required so that the receiver can fit below the rear bumper. This Curt hitch does however have a slightly easier installation process compared to the alternatives...

  • Bracket To Mount 7-Way Plug On Class III Trailer Hitch With Concealed Cross Tube
    Since the Draw-Tite trailer hitch part # 75600 is a concealed cross tube design there is not a bracket that is designed to install on the cross tube that is long enough to clear the bumper on the 2017 BMW X5. The cross tube sits too high up once the Draw-Tite hitch is installed. I recommend Curt Easy Mount Bracket part # C58000 to mount the 7-way plug. The bracket attaches to the 2" receiver tube instead of the cross tube so it works great with the Draw-Tite concealed cross tube hitch...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2007 BMW X5
    For your BMW X5 I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch, part # 75600. This is a Class lll trailer hitch and it has a 2-inch receiver opening. I think the Draw-Tite Hitch is better constructed than the Curt hitch, part # 13077, and the Draw-Tite does not require a stabilizing strap like part # 18050 as the Curt hitch does for all non-trailer loads. It can be difficult to find a place to attach a strap on a vehicle. If you plan on doing some towing you might be interested...

It is important to note that you should not re-use the hardware and do need to get replacement hardware for the hitch at part # RHK.

Both of these hitch items are fairly involved installations as hitches go; you can refer to the linked video for the Draw-Tite. For wiring, what you need depends on the trailer you intend to tow.

  • Comparing the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75600 and the Curt Trailer Hitch # 13077 for a 2015 BMW X5
    Although the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 75600, and the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # 13077, are both great hitches that both have a 6,000 lb max Gross Trailer Weight and a 600 lb max Tongue Weight, I recommend going with the Draw-Tite # 75600. The reason that I recommend the Draw-Tite # 75600 over the Curt # 13077 is because the Curt hitch requires that you use a stabilization strap, like part # 18050, for any non-trailer loads like bike racks and cargo carriers per the Curt warranty....

  • Best 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for 2015 Ford F-350 with Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package
    I will start out by saying that the best trucks for towing 5th wheel trailers are 1-ton long beds. As far as capacity you might want to upgrade to a different trailer in the future so if you have a hitch with a high enough capacity now then you wouldn't have to worry about that later. You could split the different between 16k and 20k and go with an 18k, # RP30142. Or go with a higher capacity but less expensive 20k model such as # C16530-16017 or # BWRVK3300.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2011 BMW X5 That Requires Minimal Trimming
    There are three trailer hitches available for your 2011 BMW X5. The only installation differences that you will run into will be with the Curt hitch. Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch are sister companies and their hitches are identical. We have not had the chance to install the Curt Class III Trailer Hitch, # 13077, on a 2011 BMW X5 yet, but based on the design of the hitch, I would assume the Curt hitch would require the least amount of trimming. The Curt hitch only has a 2-1/2 inch wide...

  • Why Does my Draw-Tite Have two Hitch Pin Holes on my 2012 BMW X5
    The pin you should be using is the larger one. The purpose for the second hole is for using a Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin # 63201. Check out the picture I attached that shows this product being installed on a hitch that is similar to yours. I also attached a review for this product that shows how it works. I would not recommend you use the smaller hole even though it seems to offer a smooth ride for you. Since you have a Thule rack you should be able to just tighten up the threaded...

    The Draw Tite hitch part # 75600 is a confirmed fit for your 2016 BMW X5 so it would be a great choice as it is a Class III hitch with a 2 inch opening. When installing a brake controller there isn't a way we have found to install the P3 you have but we do have a solution. You would first need to start with a 4-way though.

The same applies to the Hidden Hitch and Curt hitches made for the X5. Usually the reason for these fit exclusions has to do with trim components like the fascia or with a specialized exhaust that blocks the frame's hitch installation access points. If these (or other) components would require extensive trimming or alteration of the vehicle's styling package...

  • What Does GTW and TW Mean and What is Weight Distribution, 2008 BMW X5
    I can certainly help you out. The TW is the tongue weight. This is the weight of the trailer at the coupler that attaches to the ball mount on the trailer hitch. It should be 10 to 15 percent of the GTW or gross trailer weight. The gross trailer weight is the total weight of the trailer. Weight distribution is a system that installs on the trailer frame and the trailer couples to a special shank on the trailer hitch.

    The trailer hitch fits we offer for your 2016 BMW X5 without the M package would be what you'd want for your Xdrive40e model. For that I really like the Draw Tite you mentioned part # 75600. This is a mostly hidden trailer hitch with great towing capacities. If you'd prefer a totally hidden hitch when not in use the EcoHitch part # 306-X7265 is the way to go. When not in use you simply take out the attachment for the hitch opening and it's totally out of sight.
