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 - 2005 Honda Element

Today in our 2005 Honda Element. We'll be installing the draw-tite hitch, part number 75659. Here's what our hitch looks like installed on a vehicle. Now, we'll go ahead and give you a couple of measurements in helping you choose some accessories for your hitch such as a ball mount, bicycle rack or cargo carrier. From the center the hitch and hole to the edge of the bumper is approximately three inches and from the top of the opening on the hitch to the ground is approximately thirteen and a half inches. Now let's go ahead and install our hitch.

To begin with, we will go ahead and point out the mounting locations on the vehicle. You will notice that there are two on each the driver and the passenger side. As well as we will be using the tow hook at the center of the vehicle on the rear. Here we will show you how a half inch bolt with a half inch washer install the tube spacer through the inside hole on the frame. A three quarter inch flat wash will go and then on the inside of the hitch, a half inch conical toothed washer followed by a half inch nut.

The same process will be repeated for all four locations. Now for the center section or the tie down hook. We use a U bolt which is a 3 inch U bolt and 3 inch flange hex lock nuts. Now let's go ahead and install our hardware in to the vehicles frame. You need to repeat this process for all four locations.

Now go ahead and get someone to help you raise the hitch into place. While doing this, you need to slide the three quarter inch washer over the bolt as you push it back through the frame and through the hitch. Remember the three quarter inch flat wash needs to go between frame and the trailer hitch. Once you have all four of the bolts pushed in. Go ahead and put the half inch conical toothed washer follower by the half inch hex nut on each.

Do not tighten it down all the way this time. Once you have all four of these done. We will move over to the U bolt. You'll slide the U bolt to through the tow hook and then through the two holes on the hitch then you will install the two three ace flange hex nuts. Now you have all the hardware installed, we need to start with tightening down the U bolt first. As you tighten it down, you need to make sure that you keep it centered on the bracket and evenly tighten them. So, go ahead and tighten one side of the U bolt down followed by a level on the other side work back and forth until you have it snugged. Once you have it snugged down, go ahead torque it to the manufacturer's specification. With that done we will move back over to the half inch bolts and nuts. Let's go ahead and tighten them all down. We'll go ahead and torque those down to the manufacturer's specification as well. Now we are complete the installation of our draw-tite hitch, part number 75659 on our 2005 Honda Element. .

Hitch was an easy install. Worked as designed. After vehicle was totaled in accident, I ordered another from etrailer for the new vehicle. 2nd one fit perfectly and will put to the test next week. 573264

Fast delivery, no missing parts, very sturdy hitch. I repainted it to match my 2005 Element rear bumper. Used Rustoleum hammertone light gray. I followed a suggestion that one of the commenters had about taping the large fender washers in place to avoid trying to shove them up into place while jostling with the hitch. This trick makes this a one person operation. Also I installed the forward bolts first then swung the hitch up to set in the rear two bolts. Worked like a charm. Had no problem installing the “U” bolt, as some people mentioned. Note in the photo there is my aluminum angle that is bolted the steel tab on the left side of the receiver. Eventually I will drill a 3/4” hole in it for a quick disconnect round four wire plug. 570783

Great product, great service. The hitch for my Honda Element came very quickly- less than four days. Directions for mounting the hitch were clear and it was relatively easy to attach it; attaching it is best achieved with two people; it could be done with one, but it would be quite awkward. The hitch is on my car, looks great, ('cause you can hardly see it when the ball isn't on), and is already in use. I went with the 3,000 lb. rated hitch even though my Element is only rated to tow up to 1,500 lb.- just seemed prudent. 44213

Was going to order one from local auto parts store. Delivery was over a week. Ordered this one and received it in 2 days. Installed on a Honda Element. Took less than 30 minutes. Hitch is strong, yet lightweight to handle. Everything aligned up with ease. Instructions were easy to read and follow. I believe there were 4 bolts and one U bolt. Very simple to install. Took less than 30 minutes. Highly recommend this company for their product and their dependability. 570706

Am not quite sure how to rate the product as I was unable to install the hitch as one of the 4 tube spacers was the wrong size (all 4 spacer are supposed to be the same size). Really disappointed as I puchased this for my daughter's Honda Element and was all ready to install it for her. I called etrailer support and was told that they would contact the manufacturer and that the manufacturer of the hitch would have to resolve this. We will see how soon they respond and send the correct spacer to me. I was also a little disappointed with etraileter's response. 388751

Perfect Fit - Easy Install Easy to install - you will need deep sockets - bolts are a little too long. Not quite enough room for a deep socket on the rear bolt - so had to get a little creative. Took about 15 minutes to install. The spacer tubes are a great idea for this application - very similar to the OEM mounting setup. Shipped via UPS and arrived loose - floating around inside a giant box - I think it was supposed to be suppoted by some corrugated stapled in the center - but it had long since disintegrated - several holes worn in the the box from the mounting flanges. Powder coat had worn off the faces of the mounting bracktes - but no structural issues. I just repainted it with a primer so there was no raw steel. I'm a packaging engineer - so dissapointing to see it shipped in a package design that was not up to the job. 3021

I just received my hitch yesterday. The customer service was very professional and pleasant to work with was able to answer any questions I had. Delivery was prompt and on time as promised, big thumbs up! First thing I noticed was how the product had protruded through the bottom of box sticking out. Couple of holes allowing the product to scrape on the ground. Lifting the box, I could feel how the product wasn't very secured was able to rattle it back and forth. I opened the box up and seen how it was supported. There were two pieces of cardboard that were not very sturdy at least not enough to support the product from falling back and forth. Removed the hitch and did an overview look at it. First impression was fairly good. I like how it's constructed looks very professionally assembled welded nicely. The nut and bolt bag was taped to the hitch. I removed and opened it up inspected all the hardware. Everything seem to be there. The nuts and bolts are heavy duty, I would say appropriate size for what they are used for. Looked at the instructions which seem to be very clear. I had plans on installing the hitch this weekend. Let you know how that goes. So far giving it a “B” rating – very poor packaging. If this was a fragile product I would have expected it to be damaged. 187031

Hi! Thank you for a fantastic experience with etrailer.com. The equipment arrived on time in excellent condition and I was able to install it in 50 minutes. This included the time to unbox and read the instructions. I inserted the bolts and sleeves as recommended, lifted the tow bar into position and slid the 2 rear-most bolts in. My biggest challenge with this install was that the two forward bolts were about 1/4" to low to go in the holes. So I placed my floorjack at the center of the tow bar and raised the vehicle off the previously placed jackstands about 1/2". This forced the tow bar into alignment and I was able to slide the bolts into place. I then lowered the vehicle back onto the jackstands and finished the install. Thanks to your website and the comments of other installers, I was forwarned that the ubolt wold not line up with the holes, so I used a small sledge and an anvil to open it slightly so it would fit properly. Thanks for providing a very satisfactory product that I'm proud to show off! 349974

Installation was easy. I recommend using masking tape to hold the 3/4 washer in place. An extra set of hands is important for bringing the hitch into place. I recommend a torque wrench because the 75 ft lbs of torque for the 1/2 in nuts was a lot more than I would have thought. Finally, the hitch compressed the fender so I opted to cut it. I set the hitch, traced it against the fender with a grease pen, removed it, cut out a piece using a jig saw and finally set the hitch again. I'm really pleased with the result I got. It would have more difficult without the right tools and help. 312620

My thanks to the previous customers for photos and videos. It helped. Also, E-Trailer BOM was complete with no missing items, and included basic instructions. Hitch arrived within a few days. Ordinarily I have had hitches installed for me in the past. But this Honda Element hitch (have 2010 Element) did not require drilling and the pictures and videos from previous customers made the installation appear pretty simple. Note the sleeve/spacer will only slide on the bolt from the inner side of the frame so cannot pre-assemble on the bolt. Almost dropped sleeve inside frame while blindly attempting to slide onto second bolt, missing the bolt as inserted sleeve into hole. Hardest part for me was getting hitch into place to get initial U-bolt connected in center, before doing frame bolts as was suggested by one customer. It was just a matter of my lesser body strength and not complexity. I installed the hitch in slightly over one hour working alone. Did not install wiring harness yet, as my primary reason for the hitch is using it with a motorcycle carrier. Might just be an adjustment of the hitch mounting bolts, but I noticed that the hitch is slightly distorting the plastic bumper cover where the hitch is hitting it on the bottom center at the hitch neck. Not enough to be too worried about and do not want to cut the bumper plastic. 163536

Hardware that came with trailer-hitch was not correct. It had incorrect washers for the in-frame-tube and incorrect nuts for the in-frame-bolts. Contacted ETrailer, which did a good job with customer service. However, in order to get the correct parts, the manufacturer had to send. They sent via FedEx ground, which took another 7 days (over 2 weeks for everything). When the hardware was received, it contained the correct bag of hardware, as well as another bag for an unrelated tow-hitch for a different car (Mercedes). While etrailer is on their game, the manufacturer is not. Other reviews for this product also indicate incorrect hardware being sent. Ordered taillight kit as well, however it does not include any printed instructions and the instructions found at the etrailer website are generic, do not include detailed instructions for the "converter" nor are there instructions for the vehicle I ordered it for. Giving the product 3 stars due to manufacturer inability to correctly package parts, delays in shipping correct parts via ground, and a lack of printed or specific instructions for installing lighting kit in my vehicle. 445059

Ordering was easy, instructions were available online so I could see what I was getting into. Price was good, shipping was free. Package was delivered quicker than expected and contents arrived in perfect condition. Install instructions (also provided with the package) were spot-on and a cinch to do (installed just the hitch-no wiring). Total install time from start to finish including putting my tools away was 40 minutes. Would highly recommend etrailer, and would shop here again. As for the hitch, for the Element you basically have two choices. Class 1 with 1 1/4" receiver or Class 3 with a 2" receiver. The 2" receiver is more versatile. You can get adapters for 1 1/4" items, but you can't make a 2" fit in 1 1/4", so I recommend the Class 3. Class 1 also required drilling - no thanks. The Class 3 hitch is worth the extra money. Installs to the frame and all parts needed are provided. Just remember, the Element is not rated for Class 3 towing. Keep it to 1500 lbs and no more that 150 lb tongue weight. My understanding is that you do have to cut the bumper cosmetic trim to get the hitch to fit for Element SC models. Mine's an older EX, so no cutting. 16741

This hitch didn't fit my Honda Element as well as the Class I hitch it replaced (same brand); it was about 1/4" too narrow. A trip to the local hardware store for some more washers solved the problem however. The instructions and illustrations are very good, I probably spent a couple of hours getting everything to fit just right, but now I have a much stronger hitch and I'm ready to tow my camping trailer. 83847


Comments

Unfortunately I was in a bad accident and totaled my Honda Element?. I replaced it with a 2014 Honda CRV and put a Hidden Hitch in it about 6 months ago. It was a trickier installation than the Element, but the hitch fit very well and is stronger than the OEM hitch, so we have another winner!-Les-

My experience with e-trailer was one of those times when you think this is going too easy and there has to be a catch. There wasn't. Living in Alaska it's sometimes hard to get parts. After checking with local suppliers I found the receiver I needed for my Honda Element had to be ordered and would take two weeks. We needed it in a week. I was able to find the exact part I needed on e-trailer at a very competitive price and it arrived in 3 days. The representative I talked with was great. He doubled checked that the receiver I was ordering was the right one, checked availability and reassured me it would go out the next morning. When it arrived we had it installed in less than hour. Crisis averted with out a hitch. No pun intended. 267159

Honda Element, 2011: The hitch, wiring kit and ball mount kit was shipped the same day ordered and arrived UPS in Florida in 3 days . It was well packed. The instructions were clear enough, but making certain the spacer washers were in fact centered over the spacer tubes was a bit fiddly and difficult to verify. Be VERY careful you don't drop one of those tubes into the closed box section frame rail or you'll pay the devil getting it out! If the company were to epoxy those washers onto the tubes, it would make for a fool proof instal. The epoxy would break under torque and correct placement would be assured. I also recommend taking the time to jack the rear up and secure on stands as it will give you additional room you will appreciate when it comes time to swing your torque wrench. Still, working slowly and carefully, the install was done in 45 min. Fit was very good. No interference. The light kit was very simple, though the forward plug is easy to see but difficult to access. It was still done in 15 minutes. My local hitch installer wanted $480 to instal a hitch and light kit, no ball mount. My whole job was done in an hour. About what it would take to dive to local dealer and back. I have two different ball mounts with different heights and two different size balls and still saved $200! And it looks factory and works perfectly. 50774

I am happy to report a good experience from etrailer. I ordered DrawTite hitch 75659 for a 08 Honda Element SC, also wiring. I chose this hitch becaused of the way it mounted no drilling or enlarging holes, seemed like the best design for the Element. The orrder was shipped quickly to Okla. I had no trouble with installating of either hitch or wiring. Note, the u clamp was slightly narrow to line up with the holes in the hitch. I spread slightly before installing. I did have to trim bumper plastic which I was hesitant at first, I was careful and it now looks better than being pushed up. Thanks to Molly for good service and tracking info. 470567

As others have commented, the product descriptions and installation instructions provided by etrailer.com were excellent. Order Class III - 2" for a 2008 Honda Element SC. The hitch was promptly delivered in three days. As guided by your site, and a very prompt follow-up to my email questions by customer service representative Leah S., I was able to develop an plan to trim the bumper/fascia prior to installation. Used a "31 tooth per inch" jig saw blade to trim the required cut out. See trim planning pic and installation pic. Thanks for all your assistance...and great product. Installation was a breeze (after watch several of the you-tube instructional videos)! 191995

The hitch arrived fast and safe. I installed it this morning in less than an hour. It fit very well into place. The only trouble was the u bolt didn't quite line up with the holes on the hitch. I was able to spread it with a screw driver and it dropped into place through the holes enough to place the nuts on the treads and tighten them. Other than that, it was an easy install with just some ordinary hand tools. We used some duct tape to hold the spacer washers in place like some others advised which worked out great. Highly recommended product. 276955

I have to say etrailer hooked it up. Ordered my hitch on a Tuesday and got it the next day, got to give them a high five on that. I have a 2011 Honda Element EX, needed a hitch for my bike rack. I was looking for a hitch that would fit without any issues. Picked the Draw-Tite because it had a great review and the people on the Honda Element Forums suggested it. After I got the hitch it took about 15 min to install, actually it took longer to torque the bolts down than the actual install. As you can see from the photo their is a little bit of bumper bend but nothing that you would notice unless you looked really close. Thanks again etrailer it was great doing business with you. 16549


Comments

Thanks TJ!Its really helpful your comment and pics, especially the one with the bend. Im just wondering if DrawTite fixed this a bit of bend issue with the latest product or, its really small bend to notice, as you mentioned above.It would be nice if you can post a pic from the back, just like the other once, but without the bike carrier. I just want to see how it looks without the carrier from the back.Anyway, thanks for your review! It really helps us to decide to go with this hitch.Cheers,

The hitch for my 2010 Honda Element arrived very quickly and in good condition. The shipping box was solid, but the hitch was basically loose inside the box. Installation was easy. I recommend that you use masking tape to hold the large fender washers to the outside of the mounting plates - it makes it simple to get everything lined up. Be careful not to drop the tubular spacers into the frame rails - it would be tough to get them back out again. Put the bolts through the frame first, then put the spacers on the bolts. (Remove in the opposite order, or you risk dropping the spacer into the frame rail.) I installed the forward set of bolts loosely, allowing me to pivot the hitch up into position and mark the bumper cover for trimming (I have an SC model - no trimming is required for the EX or LX models). One thing that would be handy would be a paper trimming template for the SC bumper cover - it would be a simple addition to the instruction sheet. Put masking tape on the bumper to protect it and give you a place to mark out the cuts. The bumper material cuts easily with a coping saw or power spiral saw; cut undersized and then file or sand the opening to size and for clean appearance. The hitch lined up perfectly with all the mounting points on the frame, and it is a good, solid hitch. The hardware was all of very good quality, packaged nicely. The bracket to the left of the receiver does tend to get in the way of hitch-pin locks, but nothing I couldn't work around. Overall the service from etrailer.com was excellent! 8425

I installed the trailer hitch receiver in less than an hour without assistance on a 2005 Honda Element. I did watch the etrailer video on the installation before I ordered this. The written instructions were clear and easy to follow. The only tricky part of the installation was keeping the 3/4" flat washers in place. I used a thin screwdriver and a thin metal shim to make sure they were over the tube spacer. The final installation looks great. I really liked not having to drill holes. I hate being on my back and having the metal shavings falling on my face... I will be using this for a bike rack. I doubt that I will ever pull a trailer with it. 546888

I've purchased from you folks several times and have never been disappointed. My order arrived on time just like you promised. The hitch matched up perfectly to the frame, couldn't have been easier! Due to its weight it would have been helpful to have a buddy lift it in place, but I'm crafty and figured a way to do it alone. Keep up the good work! Whenever I need trailer parts I always source you guys first. Oh yeah, and I tell all my friends to check out you guys, they've been happy too. 546435

I got the trailer hitch on time it's exactly as described since I never installed one before a trailer hitch it took me a little bit longer to do it by myself but if you have help it'll go 10 times faster by myself it took approximately 45 minutes to install but with help it should be 10 or 15 at the most 541058

The trailer hitch is very sturdy and fit perfectly. The particular model I needed was available from a number of online retailers, but eTrailer's competitive price and free shipping tipped the scale. Most impressive, however, was their prompt response when they determined that they did not have this item in stock. They immediately arranged for another seller to ship one from their stock, resulting in it arriving a day earlier than I expected. Tracking updates were managed by eTrailer even though another company actually shipped the item. Included with the updates were links to online videos, photos, and text describing the hitch in detail and showing how it should be installed on my particular vehicle. These excellent resources were invaluable in helping me to install the hitch quickly and confidently. 521516

The hitch looks great-the Hopkins wiring harness came with NO instructions--and the instructions on the site are not at all helpful, no instructions-when we contacted the Hopkins company, they told us to use their competitors instructions! They sent a link that did not work. And so we went to their competitors site (Curt) and were able to print a few pics of how to install-and they still weren't great. We happened to find a youtube video of a guy installing the wiring harness to be able to see how difficult it was. (not a ten minute installation as it says, more like a day) None of this is etrailer's fault however, but I would think they might want to just carry the Curt lighting harness instead of the Hopkins. 418125

The hitch is great, 5 stars for the hitch itself! We took the difficult wiring harness and hitch to a local company who installs them. They knew what to do.For do it yourselfers, with a certain type of car that can be a problem Honda Element have someone do it for you!

I’ve had it a year and used it multiple times to tow a bass boat and attach a bike rack/load it with bikes with no issues. No South GA rust on it yet.

Product delivered ahead of schedule. Installed in my garage in a hoodie with safety goggles on my back. Takes half hour with no power tools. I am going to say I dig the outdoors and eventually will get a trailer, but until then I wanted to get in the groove of pushing myself to save and do it. I am going to promote myself here too, visit my tattoo shop in Olympia Washington, for custom work from a semi-retired tattoo artist. Great product and service. Thank you. 588309

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2008 Honda Element SC
  • For your 2008 Honda Element SC I would recommend the Draw-Tite Hitch part # 75659 which is a confirmed fit and has a 2 inch opening which will give you better capacities and more hitch accessory flexibility. For trailer wiring you would then want the part # 118465 which is also a confirmed fit. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts;...

  • Gross Trailer Weight and Tongue Weight Capacities for Honda Element Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch
  • Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75659 is rated for 3,500 pounds gross trailer weight and 350 pounds tongue weight. It is designed to fit a 2003 to 2011 Honda Element. Please consult the vehicle owners manual and whichever is lower, the hitch or the vehicle, go by the lower capacity rating. I have linked a video showing how the hitch installs.

  • Recommended Hitch and Towing Items for 2003 Honda Element Towing Motorcycle Trailer
  • The online edition of the owner's manual for the 2003 Honda Element indicates on page 191 that the maximum trailer weight this car can tow is 1500-lbs. This means your trailer should not weigh more than about 650-lbs; otherwise the total combined weight of Harley and trailer will exceed the vehicle capacity. An aluminum motorcycle trailer should be okay in this respect but check to be certain. Since your Element can be fitted with either a 1-1/4-inch Class I or a 2-inch Class III hitch...

  • Bike Rack Recommendations for 2010 Honda Element
  • To mount a bike rack on the rear of your Element, there are two alternatives, a hitch mounted option or a trunk mounted option. The hitch mounted option would require that a hitch like the Draw-Tite Class III receiver, part # 75659 be installed. The hitch would then serve as the attachment point for the bike rack, and could also be used with a cargo carrier or to tow a small trailer in the future, if the need should arise. Although going this route would be initially more expensive...

  • What Is Tongue Weight And Hitch That Will Fit On 2009 Honda Element
  • The first thing you will want to check in the owners manual or with the car dealer is the GCVWR (Gross Combined Vehicle Weight Rating). The GCVWR is the weight capacity for your vehicle, which includes the vehicle, trailer and the contents. The Trailer Hitch for the 2009 Honda Element, # 24720, will only work on a 2009 Honda Element that is not an SC model. If your vehicle is not a SC model then it would fit and work fine for towing the 750-800 lb. trailer. The Gross Towing Weight on...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver to Fit 2007 Honda Element SC
  • The Draw-Tite Sportframe # 24720 is not confirmed to fit the SC model of the 2007 Honda Element. For your SC we carry the Draw-Tite Max-Frame # 75659 which is a Class III hitch and the Curt # C11699 which is a Class I. Between the two I recommend the Draw-Tite because the Class III hitch will give you a much larger variety of bike racks to use than the Class I. Also, with the Curt hitch you'll need to use a support strap # 18050 to be compliant with its warranty when carrying a bike rack.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation to Tow a 1,300 Pound Utility Trailer with a 2004 Honda Element
  • The Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24720 has a capacity of 2,000 pounds. It is given this rating based on its connection points on the vehicle and testing done by the manufacturer. The connection points on the vehicle for this hitch can handle the 1,300 pounds. The bolts in the spare tire well will also require the included support blocks that distribute the weight to a wider area beyond where they are attached on the vehicle. What I recommend to give you piece of mind is to go with a...

  • Will the SportRack Swinging Bike Rack Fit a 2009 Honda Element AWD
  • If your 2009 Honda Element has a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver opening then you can use the SportRack swinging bike rack # SR2415. If you need a 2 inch trailer hitch I recommend # 75659 which fits both SC and Non-SC models of the Element. I have included a link to a video that shows installation of the trailer hitch.

  • Will TheDraw-Tite Class III 2 Inch Hitch # 75659 Fit A 2010 Honda Element SC
  • The Draw-Tite Class III 2 Inch Hitch, part # 75659, will fit the 2010 Honda Element SC, but the rear fascia does need to be trimmed. I do not have any pictures of the hitch installed on a Honda Element. If you will be towing with this hitch you will want to check your owners manual or the Honda dealer for the towing capacity of your 2010 Honda Element SC. To complete your towing setup, you will need the following items: Draw-Tite Ball Mount, part # 2923 Pin and Clip, part # PC3 Tow...

  • 2-Inch Trailer Hitch & Wiring Harness for 2005 Honda Element
  • For your 2005 Honda Element the 2-inch Class III hitch I recommend is the lower-priced option from Draw-Tite, part # 75659, since this has the same 350-lb tongue weight and 3500-lb towing capacities as the Curt hitch # 13574. The hitch includes all required mounting hardware and I have linked for you a video showing this hitch installed in your same model year Element. There is no plug-and-play wiring harness option for your car but we do have a hardwired 4-pole kit that includes everything...

  • Hitch with Best Ground Clearance for a 2008 Honda Element EX
  • For your 2008 Honda Element EX I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75659 because it will provide the best ground clearance out of the available hitch options. The top of the receiver will basically be right below the bottom of the rear fascia on the vehicle. I have linked a video review showing an example installation of this hitch for you. In the video, which is on an older Element, the distance from the ground to the top of the receiver opening is 13-1/2 inches. That means from the...

I like this hitch over the Curt as it does not require a stabilizer strap when using it with a bike rack like Curt requires. Also 2 inch hitches can carry bike racks with more than 2 bikes loaded unlike the other Class I 1-1/4 inch hitches available for your vehicle. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Roadway 2...
