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 - 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan - Draw-Tite

Today in our 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan, we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Draw-Tite Max-Frame trailer hitch receiver. This is a custom fit class 3, 2 inch trailer receiver. Part number is 75658. Here's what our hitch looks like installed on the vehicle. It's going to give us a nice, clean look. We've got the collar around the end for a little extra reinforcement. It kind of has a rolled edge to it; makes it nice and soft looking.

We're not adding a whole lot, just the receiver tube itself and our safety chain connection point. Everything else is going to be up here hidden behind our fascia, which is nice. It gives it a good clean look. We've got our rolled stock-style safety chain connection points around the bottom there and then the dual pin set up. The pin in the back, that's our 5/8 diameter pin hole. That's going to be our main pin hole.

The one in the front is for use with the J pin stabilization device in case we want to do that to help secure our cargo. As far as applications go, these are great for towing. Bike racks, big or small, work out really well with them. Also cargo carriers, that 2 inch by 2 inch opening that we're getting with the class 3 really accepts a very wide variety of different applications. When it comes to towing, we're going to have a 350 pound maximum tongue weight, it's going to be the maximum downward force we can put here at the receiver tube opening. We're also going to have a gross trailer weight rating of 3500 pounds.

That's a total of our trailer and then anything else that we've got loaded up on it. We also want to look into the owner's manual of the Tiguan and see what its tow ratings are. We're going to go off of whichever of those numbers are the lowest. A couple measurements that will be helpful in selecting your ball-mount bike rack or hitch cargo carrier will be from the ground to the inside top edge of our receiver tube opening. We've got about 15-3/4 of an inch. Then from the center of our hitch pin hole to the outer most edge of our bumper is about 3. To begin our installation, we need to trim out 6-1/2 inches of the underside here, right inside of this line.

It's almost pre-cut, we'll just use a razor knife to get this trimmed out. We're going to go from the passenger side edge over toward the driver's side. I'm going to use a straight edge to mark that off. This is going to be the section that we want to get rid of. I'm just going to use a razor knife. You can also use a rotary tool or something if you wanted to go around there. I'm just going to score it a few times around the outside. We should be able to work it off there pretty easy. Nice clean cut out hole there. Now what we're going to do . we can see here we've got 1, 2, 3 and 4 mounting locations. I'll use a little bit of spray lubricant and up inside there, there's going to be a couple weld nuts in each . or 1 weld nut in each of those locations. I'm just going to use a nylon tube brush and get up in those and clean them out and make sure they're free of any dirt and debris. Most of those are cleaned out. Let's get our head tray stuff into position. We're going to use our supplied hardware and also the conical tube washers to get our hitch into position. We want the teeth of these washers to face up towards our hitch. You want to slide this front lip over the edge of the fascia first by tipping it up and just rotate it in to position. I like to use a good extension with a socket on the end to get my bolt started. We'll place our bolt right up to the hitch, line it up with our hole locations and then we can thread it right on in. We'll just let it rest there while we get our 3 other ones started. Now with them all started, let's go ahead and snug them down then we'll torque them to the specifications we can find in our instructions. With everything torqued down to specification, that completes today's installation of the Draw-Tite Max-Frame custom fit trailer hitch receiver. Part number 75658 on our 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan.

This is the first time I have used etrailer for aftermarket accessories. The online product information was well presented and easy to follow. My order was accepted with an email follow up and detailed tracking information. I received the order today which was exactly as requested and on time. It doesn't get any better than that. Very pleased! Keep up the good work. Phil S 339020

This trailer hitch is perfect for my 2015 VW Tiguan! That has to be the easiest installation ever. I’m a 64-year-old woman and did this by myself in 20 minutes following the YouTube video verbatim! I was able to cut right into the facia very easily with a box cutter. I was so afraid at first because I don’t want to screw things up but the instructions are perfect and this trailer hitch will do the job for me. I am getting an extension to reduce the size 2 1 1/4 inch for my bike rack. But was bad planning on my part but it’s already in the mail. The trailer is the only way for me to go. I’ve gotten my roof racks, bike rack and trailer hitch for two different cars now. Thanks for a great product. I’m very proud of myself I have to brag 583617

Super easy to install. Had to be 30 minutes, maybe even less, from start to finish. The install video was extremely helpful and the included instructions provided the specific details needed like what side of the fascia to cut out and the torque spec on the bolts. Hitch looks great, doesn't stick out to far. 43555

Looks like a solid hitch. However, i didnt receive the bolts to install it. Which is kinda a bummer. I was really looking forward to installing it and giving it a try. Now I gotta wait another week for etrailer to send me the bolts. I might go see is Lowes got the bolt sizes. I guess thats just my luck. 494709

Quick and easy to install, less than 10 minutes. I had to go to an auto parts store and borrow a torque wrench to apply the required 38-foot pounds. I simply snugged everything up at home and then drove it over unloaded and did it right there in the parking lot. Couldn't be easier! Also, I asked a few questions of Etrailer customer service via e-mail and they were quick and helpful with their responses. Will absolutely do business with again! 79079

My wife at the last minute.... Christmas! tells me she would like a trailer hitch and a bike rack to add to her list for Santa. Well I got up early the next morning and contacted etrailer.com. *** Total Success***. It is now sitting under my tree at home 600 miles away from the hotel I placed the order from. It was so simple: The web site asked for the year and make of the car, once provided I watched a installation video and it gave me three choices to choose from. The site provided information to help choose and then rapidly processed my order for the hitch and bike rack. A fast smooth comfortable process from beginning to end. Thanks to all at etrailer.com, Merry Christmas to you all! You certainly made my wife & mine merrier! 733788

This receiver is well built and compact. It is simple to install, requiring only one person. When mounted to the Tiguan, it is out of the way and does not detract from the appearance of the car. After selling my Rav4 I needed receiver to mount my bike rack to a VW Tiguan. This receiver met all of my needs. The bike rack is simple to mount and secure. I really appreciated the video that explained how to mount the receiver to the car. The tip about cleaning out the mounting nuts attached to the car was most helpful. The bolts easily slid into place and threaded in beautifully. My car had 28,000 miles on it when I installed this part. Those mounting nuts cleaned up in no time when I used the recommended brush and a little WD40. 667884

Fantastic product and instructions sent by etrailer.com. It took me roughly 15 minutes to unbox and fasten the trailer hitch to my 2015 Tiguan - which saved me roughly $500 from what was quoted by a local service provider. I installed a bike mount rack on the hitch and used it that morning. I couldn't be happier! 664819

    The Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Receiver Hitch # 75658 referenced in your question is confirmed to fit your 2012 VW Tiguan and it does indeed have a towing weight capacity of 3,500 pounds. With that being said, a towing setup will always be limited by its weakest component.

  • Is a Torque Wrench Necessary for Installing a Trailer Hitch on 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan
    Any hitch for any vehicle will deliver its rated tongue weight and gross towing capacities only if installed exactly according to the manufacturer's instructions. Both the correct grade of fasteners (which are included, by the way) and their precise torque specifications are critical to safe installation. Many auto parts stores will loan or rent tools like a torque wrench so you may not have to purchase one. Under no circumstances should a hitch be installed without securing the fasteners...

  • Is a Torque Wrench Required to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan
    When installing a trailer hitch like # 75658 it is necessary to use a torque wrench to get the bolts to the right tightness. If not, and you just try to tighten them as hard as you can, you can damage the vehicle frame. Too loose and the hitch could fail when you tried to use it. Many auto parts stores lend out tools so you will not have to buy one in most cases. If a bolt is supposed to be torqued to 38 foot pounds, for example, you can use a torque wrench that has a rating that encompasses...

These are two different manufacturers that offer hitches of similar design, the real difference is in the product name and price.

    The Draw-Tite Class III hitch you mentioned, part # 75658 would work very well for carrying a bike rack. Since the average bike weighs 30-35 lbs you should have no problem finding a 2,3 or 4 bike rack that would work well for you. The Swagman Trailhead is a good mid-priced rack available in a 2 bike (# S63360) 3 bike (# S63365) or 4 bike (# S63380) models. To carry womens bikes or bikes with sharply angled top tubes or step-through frames, using a frame adapter like part # 64005...

  • Ways to Carry 4 Bikes on an Australian Version of the 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan
    The best and easiest option for you to carry 4 bikes on your 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan would be with a trailer hitch and hitch mounted bike rack. Installing a trailer hitch on your vehicle will allow for a much wider variety of bike racks to be used in comparison to a roof or trunk mounted bike carrier. The hitch will also allow for you to easily attach a cargo carrier or tow a trailer if need be. For a trailer hitch, I recommend taking a look at the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver...

  • Trailer Hitch that Does Not Require Bumper Trimming for a 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan
    That is correct. On several of the trailer hitches for the 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan, there is fascia trimming required to install the hitches on the vehicle. Even if trimming were not required, you will want to check the terms of your lease to see if a trailer hitch can even be installed just to be on the safe side. If you will be doing some towing I recommend adding the etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and a carrying bag. For...

  • Trailer Hitch And Wiring Recommendation For 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan
    We have a few trailer hitches designed to fir your 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan. I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C13133. This is a Class lll hitch and has a 2 inch receiver opening. This hitch is rated with 3,500 lb towing capacity and 350 lb tongue weight capacity. You will want to check your owner's manual or with your dealership to make sure you do not exceed the towing or tongue weight capacity for your Tiguan. Using a heavier duty hitch does not increase the towing capacity...

  • Carrying 3 Bikes on a 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan with a 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    You are limited to 2 bikes on a Class I trailer hitch receiver but not a Class II. If you have a Class II receiver on the Tiguan you can carry 3 bikes as long as you're still within the weight capacity of the hitch. We only carry Class II and Class III hitches for your VW so it's likely you have a Class II. Check the hitch, owner's manual, or with Volkswagen to find the hitch Class and capacities is the first step. If you find out it's a Class I hitch, or a Class II that isn't rated...

  • Easy to Install Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan
    The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75658 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan. As far as hitch installs go this is the easiest one to install. Basically you will need to cut out the grooved area on the rear fascia of your vehicle and then bolt the hitch into place. You would have no problem doing this. I attached installation instructions and an install video for you to check out as well. Since you are only using a cargo carrier you...
