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.

This has been a very solid hitch. Installation went reasonably smooth given it is only the second one I have installed. The kit came with some ingenious wires to fish the mounting bolts through the vehicle’s frame. I was able to install on my own with the help of my SUV floor jack to keep it in the right position. A second person helping would make the job easier but you will probably want to have a jack available regardless. I’m using this for a 4 bike platform rack.

My etrailer looks OEM on my 2003 Honda CRV. It does not protrude from the rear bumper and the sides of the etrailer angle underneath the vehicle that has a great aesthetic appearance. Unfortunately, my vehicle only has a 1500lb tow capacity preventing me from using the etrailer for what I intended.

The Draw-tite hitch exceeded my expectations. It arrived quickly with no damage. The quality is above what I expected. It looks much stronger than my CR-V’s towing capacity will ever need, and it is less visible on the vehicle than I expected. Installation was straightforward with no major issues. The etrailer installation video was excellent. Unless something in the video scares you, you should have no issue installing the hitch yourself. I used a drill and chisel to enlarge the first mounting hole, and I thought the results could be better. I used a rotary tool with a 1” cutoff wheel on the remaining three. It was a good bit faster and easier, especially above the muffler. It left cleaner, more accurate holes.

Product Is fine but is not nearly as easy to install. For one thing the spacers and carriage bolts don’t fit in the holes, so the “no drilling required” claim is not true. Secondly it is impossible to put back the second rubber mount for the exhaust once the hitch is on. Let’s just say install will be a royal pain.


Comments
We do have a video of this hitch being installed on a 2004 CR-V that shows some of the issues that you experienced. The installation instructions do indicate that the holes in the frame will need to be enlarged to allow the hardware to be fished through. Our installers us a small rotary tool for this, but we have seen a variety of tools used to achieve the same result. Additionally the installation instructions have a note after step 1 to make sure that the rubber exhaust hanger is re-installed before the hitch is raised into place, and it is remove the exhaust hanger from the muffler side instead of the hanger rod side due to the interference with the hitch side bracket. I have included a link to the installation instructions and our installation video for your reference.

Have only used my draw-tite hitch a few times so far to pull a small trailer but intend to get a bike rack for it eventually. Hitch looks nice on vehicle because its a 2 inch. Hitch works great and install was easy. Ordered the draw-tite because it did not require additional support for certain applications.


Comments
Love the draw-tite hitch. Using on an CRV and have pulled multiple trailers and used it for a Thule bike rack. Hitch was easy to install with easy to follow instructions.

Perfect fit on my 06' CR-V, but had to disconnect exhaust hangers on the fear muffler to mount the right part of the hitch. The instructions were adequate to mount the hitch and install the wiring. I chose this hitch over the completion because i liked the round, tubular design. It looked and is more substantive. I used the accessory plug holder to mount the plug for a tidy installation.


Comments
Quality product, good video constructions, good hardware. On 06 CR-V had to loosen R side muffler hanger to install that side.

It's stout, well designed & it fit. The fish wires are genius. Reconnecting the inside hanger bracket, after lowering was difficult but accomplished after raising the muffler with a floor jack. I would get another hitch from etrailer if I needed one.

Excellent!! The hitch looks great on the back of my 2004 CR-V. Installation was straightforward. The instructional video provided several helpful tips, especially regarding the muffler hangers. I had trouble reattaching the inboard muffler hanger, and had to improvise. My temporary solution was to use two zip-ties to connect it to the bracket on the muffler. I chose this over the Curt model, as it looked more robust, and didn't require stabilizing straps for unsupported loads. Now that it is installed, I need to try it out!

I purchased a Draw-Tite Max -Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver 75690 from e-Trailer to replace a class I receiver for hauling our bikes and also my trailer. I needed a more weight capacity hitch because I had to extend my bike rack past my spare tire on my Honda CRV. Now with the 7 inch added adapter purchased from e-Trailer I can haul our two bikes safely. The hitch was very easy to install and I give 5 stars for e-Trailer because of their quality products and competitive prices and fast service. Since then I ordered a locking anti wobble hitch pin and a 2" stainless steel ball and again e-Trailer came through quality parts and satisfaction.

Installing the hitch on my 2006 Honda CRV went pretty well. I had an issue with expanding the back 2 holes on the car frame, to allow the metal bars and bolts to fit into the frame. Why not supply bars and bolts that fit into the stock holes? The wires supplied to insert the metal bars and bolts worked well. After the installation, I couldn't get the inside muffler rubber hanger on because the hitch didn't give me enough room to hang it, so I just have 1 rubber hanger holding the muffler up. The hitch looks good!


Comments
Trailer hitch installation hardware needs to be beefy enough to stand up to the task at hand. Hitch manufacturers try and do their best to work with the existing holes in the vehicles frame, but they arent always large enough to accommodate the necessary hardware. The bars need to be long enough to wedge against the vehicle frame, holding the bolt in place so it can be torqued down. I have also linked a help article with some tips that may help you get the second muffler hanger reattached. The article focuses on reducing hitch and muffler rattle, but the tips may still apply to your situation.

Nice hitch, easy to install with two people. My only gripe is the carriage bolts are to short, I got them flush with the nut, don't like that, I like to see at least 1/4 inch of threds. I also under coated the hitch before installing it.

The trailer hitch was poorly packaged and there were a few dings in the black coating. the installation was as expected and there was a very good fit to the car. however after installation the hitch was found to over lapped the inboard muffler hanger to not allow the rubber hanger to be installed without modification.

This is a very well made hitch that has all the holes exactly where they are needed. All the hardware, pulling wires and instructions were included making this hitch a very easy install. I watched a video that has all the steps needed for the installation. I did have to use a dremel tool with a 1/2" abrasive stone bit to make extra room for the reinforcement tabs and bolts to enter the frame of the vehicle. The frame hole enlargement was the only modification needed. I also purchased an exact fit wiring harness that was a simple install after getting a few panels removed. The only tools needed was a socket set, a dremel tool with an abrasive bit, a torque wrench, a little spray lube and a small prying tool to remove the exaust hangers. This hitch will expand the usage of this vehicle. We haul a lot of things in the little Honda CRV with the seats folded down. We even have a roof rack to haul the kayaks. A trailer would allow us to haul the kayaks without lifting them to the roof and I know my wife will be happy to have a light trailer to haul the mower and help family during moves.

Received the hitch, receiver, ball and T-harness in one shipment. Good to go. Install was pretty straight forward. For my CRV, I took a hammer and chisel to make an indent about 1/8 of an inch deep in order to allow the locking washers and the heads of the carriage bolts that secure the hitch to the Honda uni-frame to pass through the hole. The thread on wire guides worked slick. I per-sprayed the rubber exhaust hangers on the muffler and directly in front of the rear axle with silicone spray which makes the hangers slide easily off and back onto the hangers. The left rear hanger... is problematic. If you slide the hanger off the body (versus the muffler) you won't be able to slide the hanger back onto the body mount AFTER the hitch install. At least not without shaving some of the hanger thickness off of the upper end that slides onto the body mount. Other than that slight annoyance, the hitch fit is very good and it tucks up under the CRV nicely.


Comments
One year later, and the hitch and wiring is still functioning as designed. The powder coat on the hitch has held up well and, honestly, for the vehicle being a Honda CRV, it looks good on the car. We have towed a light camping trailer on multiple occasions for probably 1500 miles and the hitch has functioned well. Good product.

The hitch fit my car very well, with one exception. The recovery loop on my car appeared to have been bent up. I added a spacer between the loop and the trailer hitch surface so I could tighten the u-bolt without putting a stress on the rest of the assembly. The directions were clear, however, I would strongly suggest that the hitch installation is a two person task. Also, I found it to be much easier to remove the muffler to install the hitch rather than try to work around it. Using the wires to work the carriage bolts and rectangular plates into place worked really well. I fixed a small c-clamp to the end of the wire after feeding it through to prevent the wire from being pulled back from the weight of the carriage bolt.


Comments
We use it to pull a Camp Inn tear trailer. We picked up the trailer in Wisconsin and traveled with it to our home in western Washington. Weve taken a few trips since. The hitch has been trouble free. The trailer is right at the weight limit for our CRV, however it has brakes so I have had no safety concerns beyond the normal issues of pulling a trailer. I was able to mount a RV style plug on the hitch structure with a fabricated mount. Thanks for the great products.

I like the drawtite hutch over the curt BUT reconnecting the onboard muffler mount was awful!!! The drawtite bracket is SOOOO substantial it interferes with the reassembly. We need a video of that install. Still it’s a great product and the harness went on and works perfectly. All around the service and products offered are excellent.
