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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan, we're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Custom Fit Class III trailer hitch receiver. Offering the two inch by two inch receiver tube opening, its part number is 75658. Here's what our hitch is going to look like installed. As you can see, we're not adding a whole lot to the rear of the vehicle, so it's going to maintain its quality looks. Basically, what we'll see is our receiver tube opening here. You've got the reinforcement collar, which is a nice, rounded look. Then our safety chain connection points here.

The rest of the bracket and stuff is right up underneath here, which is an extremely easy hitch to install. Now, this is a Class III hitch, so we've got a two inch by two inch receiver tube opening, and it makes it an extremely versatile hitch. Now, when we secure those items, we always want to use the pinhole located closer to the front of the vehicle. It's the larger of the two. It's 5/8 of an inch in diameter, and there's a good amount of room around there for whatever locking hitch, pin, or anti-rattle device you might decide to use. The one located further to the rear is only for use with the J-Pin Stabilization System. Now, when we use accessories on our hitch, we've got to watch our weight ratings.

The hitch is going to have a 350 pound tongue weight rating, so that's the maximum downward force we can put at the receiver tube opening, and it gives us a 3500 pound gross trailer weight rating. That's going to be the total weight of your trailer and anything that you add on to it. Now, you also want to check the owner's manual on the Tiguan to see what its tow rating is and use whichever of those are the lowest. Also, something to keep in mind, the hitch is not rated for use with weight distribution. Now, a few measurements that you'll find helpful when it's time to select your ball mount bike rack or hitch cargo carrier will be from the ground to the inside top edge of the receiver tube opening, we've got about 15 1/2 inches. Then from the center of our hitch pin hole to the outer most edge of our bumper, it's about three. Now, to begin our installation, we need to just trim out the little panel here.

That's going to allow us to see up to our weld nuts located behind. I'm going to come over six and a half inches from that outside edge. We'll use a straight edge to square that off and get it trimmed out with a razor knife. Now, let's get those cleaned out. You can use a little bit of spray lubricant here and a nylon tube brush.

This is part number 814092. Now, we'll get our hitch raised up into position. You'll see this lip on the front. You just have to get that in first, rotate it up, and we'll just install our bolts in the four locations. Mechanical tube washer, just want to make sure that the teeth of that washer are facing up toward our hitch when we get it installed. With all four installed, we'll snug them down, and then we'll torque them to the specifications listed in our instructions. . All right, at that point, our hitch is ready for use. That will complete our instillation of the Draw-Tite Custom Fit Class III trailer hitch receiver, part number 75658 on our 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan.

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

This is the first time I have used etrailer for aftermarket accessories. The online product information was well presented and easy to follow.

Very pleased! Keep up the good work. Phil S 339020

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

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

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

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

Another great hitch and wiring. Installed on Tiguan already.Takes 15 minutes, wiring takes 30 minutes. Still towing 25 yr old aluminum trailer I built. I will add a basket for gas cans weld one up or buy one? Don't know yet looking through junk pile for steel. Should last until I get hit again, the hitch will help in an impact. Last one on Camry took 45 mph hit from rear stopped at light. impact bent the frame totaled car. will re -cut and weld the old hitch into something else. 652470

Perfect fit for my 2014 Tiguan. The receiver that Volkswagen offered may have been good enough, but it's size did not allow me to use the hitches that I already had. So even though this receiver is over rated for my 2200lb limit on the Tiguan, it is sturdy, still shiny from original paint, and should at this rate last many years. I also love how easy your site is to find the parts you need, and when I was in doubt of something, your customer service was very friendly and helpful. I also just love the J- pin stabilization pin and barrel lockset I ordered with the receiver. There is no rattle or movement coming from the trailer, and it locks the receiver to the vehicle. 583582

I ordered this because I did not want the huge long receiver that the trailer rental place wanted to install on my SUV. I watched an online video on installing it and save some money by doing it myself. Very EASY!!! My SUV had the frame holes and weld nuts already and there was even an outline on the plastic to cut for access. Once I started, it took about 30 minutes to have it secured to my SUV. The ONLY issue I had and it's not a complaint, more of a suggestion, is the instructions tell you to use an "Utility Knife" to cut the plastic.....that is NOT happening. I used a Dremmel tool and it worked great. I was able to install this without removing a single screw on my vehicle. Very happy with the receiver and how it looks on my SUV!!! 518846

I'm very pleased with the Draw-Tite class III hitch. Very easy install on a 2017 VW Tiguan SEL. Simply cut away the fascia as illustrated in the included instructions, and bolt it on. Make sure the toothed washers are facing up to grip the hitch. It took about 30 minutes, and I took my time. Construction is solid and it looks good, too. I use it with the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 bike rack, and it works perfectly. 499478

The 2017 VW Tiguan manual says that there is a towing "eye" that will screw into a hole in he rear bumper. The hole is there but no threads to screw into.

Everything went perfect. Hitch was shipped immediately after ordering and the package arrived in good condition. The item was well packed. Installation on my car was very simple (no drilling, removing of exhaust, etc), but the directions were very clear. Literally just cut out a small piece of the plastic fascia and install with four bolts. Took about 10 minutes. Just make sure you have a torque wrench to get the proper tightness. This was purchased to hold a bike rack and it everything fits great. Kind of shocking that a car dealer wanted several hundred dollars to put a hitch on the car I just purchased. Very glad I ordered from this website. 420591


Comments

Still great. I only use it for a bike rack so I cant comment on its towing ability but Ive been very happy. It holds the bike rack very steady even at Interstate speeds. A friend asked me about it and he bought one for his car for a bike rack and I know hes been very happy with it. He was also amazed how easy it was to install although he had to lower the exhaust and how ridiculous it was that a car dealer wanted to charge him so much to do it.

This has to be one of the simplest hitches to install! etrailer instruction video was great and I had the hitch installed in about 20 minutes. I cannot change my oil and I had no problems putting this hitch on. I just got back from a 1300 mile road trip pulling a heavy trailer through the mountains with this hitch and everything was solid as a rock. 399139

  • Trailer Hitch, Wiring and Related Towing Items for 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Limited
  • For the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan and Tiguan Limited we do offer both 1-1/4-inch Class II and also 2-inch Class III hitches. All four products are shown on the linked page. The two 2-inch hitches available are the Draw-Tite # 75658 and Curt # C13133. Both share a common 350-lb tongue weight capacity and essentially identical installation processes. I recommend using the Draw-Tite since it does NOT require use of a support strap # 18050 as the Curt does for non-towing use as with a bike...

I attached an install video for the hitch for you to check out as well. For trailer wiring you then would want the # 118675 which is a confirmed fit.

  • 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...

This applies both to their 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch # C12097 and their 2-inch Class III hitch # C13133. The strap can be positioned at the top of the rear hatch, or on other vehicles to one of the raised roof side rails or roof rack crossbars. Since use of the strap can be a nuisance for some folks I suggest...

  • 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...

  • Parts Needed to Tow with a 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan
  • The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75658 comes with everything needed for the installation. I have attached a sample installation video that you can use for a reference. If you are needing to do some towing then you will also need a ball mount and hitch ball like part # C45036. This comes with a 2" hitch ball and has a shank that drops 2" as well. I have attached a link to a helpful article about choosing the correct ball mount for you to check out. To complete your...

  • Draw-Tite vs Curt Hitch for 2009 Volkswagen Tiguan
  • Curt recommends the stabilizer strap with non-supported loads like bike racks to help support the hitch when going over bumps to prevent some of the vertical shock from being transferred to the hitch. Curt does this as a precaution, it's not that Draw Tite is stronger. Both hitch brands make outstanding hitches that are typically stronger than what they are rated for. I would say that Curt just happens to approach the idea of a bike rack/cargo carrier being used in a lower capacity hitch...

  • Is Trimming Required to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan R-Line
  • Since your 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan R-Line does not have the removable fascia piece there will be some trimming required to install Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75658. I have included a picture from the instructions that shows where and how much to trim. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch...

  • What Is the Difference Between the Hidden Hitch and the Draw-Tite Hitch for a 2009 Volkswagen Tiguan
  • The Hidden Hitch, part # 87600 (no longer available), and the Draw-Tite, part # 75658, are essentially the same receiver hitch and will perform the same. These are two different manufacturers that offer hitches of similar design, the real difference is in the product name and price. I would recommend the Hidden-Hitch for your vehicle, because it is less expensive and has the same capacity as the Draw-Tite hitch. Along with the hitch you are considering you may also need the following...

  • Recommended Bike Carrying Options for 2011 VW Tiguan
  • For carrying two bikes, you can choose a trunk mounted or a hitch mounted bike rack. Because the Tiguan has a spoiler on the upper edge of the rear hatch, I would recommend a rack like the Hollywood Racks Over-The-Top 2 Bike Carrier, part # HRF2. This rack actually distributes the weight of the rack and the bikes evenly along the hatch. The rack has a 70 lb (35 lbs/bike) capacity. To carry the womens bike, I would recommend a frame adapter, part # HRBA-PRO. The frame adapter spans the...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness for a 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan
  • For your 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan we have trailer wiring harness # 118675. It plugs in line with the vehicle tail lights and also connects to the battery to power the lights and help protect the vehicle electrical system. It does not use the factory tow package wiring plug to install. I have linked a video review for you.

  • 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...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan and Bracket for Holding Wiring
  • For your 2012 VW Tiguan the # 75658 is basically the new part number for the 87600 that you referenced which has been discontinued. To mount the 4-way you'd need a bracket like the part # 18144 which attaches to the bottom of the rear bumper.

  • The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan is the Draw-Tite Class III Receiver Hitch # 75658.

  • Compatibility of Thule Parkway Bike Rack with Draw-Tite Receiver on 2011 VW Tiguan
  • The Thule Parkway, part # TH958 is compatible and would work well with the Draw-Tite Class III Receiver for your 2011 Tiguan. I would also recommend the Thule Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock, part # THSTL2 if you do not already have one. I will provide links to the installation instructions for the hitch as well as an install video that you might find helpful. The video shows the hitch being installed on a 2009 model, but the procedure for your 2011 would be similar.

  • Bumper Mount and Frame Mount Trailer Hitches for a 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan
  • On most vehicles, the bumper beam is attached to the vehicle frame. A hitch that attaches to the bumper beam (a lot of Jeep and Dodge truck applications are like this) is just as safe and secure as a frame mount hitch. It would take an impressive amount of force and one heck of a crack in the road to pull the bumper off of a vehicle, provided the hitch is installed correctly. Your mechanic may be thinking of a hitch that attaches to a square bumper like # E-100. You would not use this...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan
  • Yes, we offer 2 inch hitches that are confirmed to fit your 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan. The Draw Tite Hitch part # 75658 and the Hidden Hitch part # 87600 (no longer available) are basically the exact same hitch and are both a fit for your vehicle. They are both made by the same parent company, Cequent. They also share the same installation instructions. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack part # S64670. This rack...

  • Dimensions of Curt, Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch Class III Hitches For a 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan
  • I have pulled all three of the Class III hitches available for your 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan and you were correct that the Curt hitch # C13133 has a shorter overall height compared to the Draw-Tite # 75658. The Curt # C13133 has an overall height difference of approximately 1/8 of an inch shorter than the Draw-Tite. In the pictures I have attached the dimensions for each of the hitches as well as a video snapshot of the Draw-Tite # 75658 that is installed on a 2011 Tiguan to show you...

  • 2 inch Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan for Bike Rack
  • Since the Draw Tite hitch part # 75658 is the best choice for a bike rack for your 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan since it does not require a stabilizer strap like the Curt does. The best hitch lock will vary on the bike rack that you use. I really like the Saris Freedom Superclamp part # SA4025F. This is a lightweight platform rack (which is normally an unheard of combo). That means it'll be easy to install and remove from your vehicle since it's light, but also it'll be very easy to load...

  • Trailer Hitch to Carrier Regular Bikes and Dirt Bike on a 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan
  • Since you want to carry a dirt bike and carrier as well as regular bikes I recommend a Class III trailer hitch for your 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan, # 75658. This hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds. Consult the Tiguan owners manual to determine its tongue weight capacity and go by the lower rating. As long as the combined weight of the dirt bike and your carrier does not exceed the lower tongue weight capacity rating then you will be good to go. I have included a link to a video...

  • Ball Mount Options for Towing Trailer with 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan
  • Ideally you buy the hitch first, measure the difference in height between the hitch and the bottom lip of the trailer when level and then buy a ball mount that matches the rise/drop so that it can be towed as level as possible. For your 2016 Tiguan I would recommend the hitch part # 75658. Which when we installed this hitch we found that it measured 15-3/4 inches from the top of the opening down to the ground. Without knowing what trailer you plan to buy the part # 989900 would be a...
