This is one of the best websites I have ever visited. Are usually don't go for the sponsored websites on Google but I check this one out. First off the price of their items is 50% less work more than any other website I found. Secondly I've never seen a more detailed website especially in terms of instructional videos and step-by-step instructions. They literally have an instructional video for every model car, every year, and for every part that they sell that I could find. I might be off but they had it for all of the stuff I was looking for. To cap it all off, I decided to call in and speak to someone just to clarify I was buying the right thing. To my amazing surprise I got someone in the United States who spoke English and knew every detail about every item that was being sold to me. They even suggested I get the cheaper model of something because it actually was a better piece of equipment. When I finally received the equipment earlier than I said I would get it, I watched the instructional videos for both items that I received and it made this the easiest installation process of anything I have ever watched/done in my life. In conclusion, I cannot recommend this website enough if you're looking for anything that they are selling get it through Etrailer.com! ...and no, they did not pay me to say any of this. As a matter fact I rarely leave reviews but my experience with them was so good I just had to spread the word. 370160

Yes I still love your product and I’m still saying praises about you and your website to all my friends and family. The hitch is just resting out a little bit but I’m sure that’s to be expected with these type of products up north. Thank you so much for your continued help and interest I’ll keep spreading the word.

First of all, I must say how satisfied I am with Etrailer.com! Super-fast shipping (2 days!) and service personnel who KNOW what they're TALKING about! For me, relatively a novice at any DIY vehicle modifications beyond toolboxes, mudguards, etc., that was just what I needed. The prices are great too, as good as any you will find out there, especially for the package deal, which is what I got. I looked at buying a hitch locally and having it installed, and the cheapest I could get it done for was $450. Plus, I wouldn't have gotten a ball mount, ball, or wiring bracket with that deal. Here on Etrailer.com, for less than $300 shipped, I got the whole package WITH a stainless steel 2" ball. And, the valuable experience and satisfaction of doing the whole thing myself. The project installation videos on this website are INVALUABLE! Made the whole job much easier. Anyway, enough gushing, the hitch itself is of a much better quality than the one I used to have on my truck from the factory. That one rusted after a couple of years, and though fully functional, never looked very nice. I put this new one on our 2015 Kia Sportage, and the fit and finish are superb. A nice glossy black powder-coat on all the metal, plus, being a hidden-type design, it only shows the actual receiver opening below the bumper. Very nice! I was desperate to get a hitch on this new vehicle, since I traded in my F150 to get it, thus losing all my towing and hauling capabilities without a trailer. Now, I have some of that back again, just have to buy a trailer next. Fortunately, we have one at work I can use anytime I need it until I can get one for my family. I would definitely shop Etrailer again in the future. 214811

This hitch was for my 2014 Hyundai Tucson. It arrived as promised and in excellent condition. The muffler needed to be dropped in order to install this hitch. No issues with that. A little WD-40 and the muffler popped right off the hangers. I installed this hitch by myself while lying on the ground. No lift, no jack stands, no additional pair of hands. I had asked my wife to come out to hold up one side while I attached the other. Since she was heavily involved in the 2nd hour of "fixing her hair", I continued on my own. I held up one end of the hitch with my feet while using my hands to bolt in the other end. Since half the weight was now supported by bolts, it was easy to reach over to the other side and install those bolts. In all, installation was fast and easy. Oh yes...my wife's hair looked great too. Thanks for asking. 125410

Were glad to know that the hitch install went well, even if you had to make it work all by your lonesome. Wed love to see pictures of the final result. Hitch or hair, either one works.

Its been a year since we installed this hitch on our Tucson. We use it for a 2-bike rack and it has performed as expected. I did need to install a collar to lock it down to stop movementbouncing. That works very well too. The muffler is very close to the hitch, almost touching, and I can occasionally hear them bump together under certain conditions. Not a big deal so I havent felt the need to modify anything.

The hitch is very high quality and easy to install, just four bolts. It arrived on time as expected. The customer service agent helped me pick the best receiver and I did not regret it. The customer service is excellent at etrailer. I intend to use them again for purchasing accessories. The online videos are excellent demonstrations too. 489128

The draw tite trailer hitch fit perfectly on my 2015 Hyundai Tucson SE AWD. I had more troubles getting the exhaust lowered than I did putting the hitch in place. Installation took about 40 minutes doing it by myself, but I was also on crutches so moving around wasn't easy. 231243

It was amazingly easy to put on Just 4 bolts and that's it. We did not even have to move the muffler like the direction said to do We just slide it into place and bolted it up It took about 10 minutes to install. We didn't even have to jack up the csr it was that easy. The local dealer wanted, $400 to purchase and install it. Trust me you can do it easily Great product I would highly recommend it 853378

Love the hitch. could not as for a better fit or easier installation. The hitch arrived exactly on schedule and bolted right up to my wife's 2015 Kia Sportage. With the help of a friend the hitch was installed in less than 15 minutes. I have used other hitches in the past and it was not such a smooth process or installation. I could not be happier and the next time I need a hitch it will be a Draw-Tite again and will definitely purchase it through etrailer.com Happy customer 720704

I have included a link to a video showing an example installation for you. To add a 4-Way flat trailer connector to the back of the Sportage I recommend # 118526.

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 bikes on since it's a platform...

I looked up the towing capacity of your vehicle and it looks to have a capacity of 2,000 lbs trailer weight so that would be the number you'd need to stay under.

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for 2014 Kia Sportage To Level Trailer
    While we don't have a suspension kit I can recommend for your 2014 Kia Sportage I have a better option actually.

  • Hitch & Motorcycle Carrier for 2014 Kia Sportage EX
    For the 2014 Kia Sportage EX we offer both 1-1/4-inch Class II and 2-inch Class III hitches, all of which are shown on the linked page. For transporting a dirt bike on a hitch-mount carrier you will definitely want a 2-inch hitch which will give you higher tongue weight (TW) capacity for handling the combined weight of the carrier and bike.
