Fully welded vehicle trailer hitch is strong and durable. Draw-Tite's Tested Tough guarantee ensures that this hitch exceeds industry standards. The combination of an e-coat base and a powder coat finish provides excellent rust protection.


The hitch went on as in the video. The main difference was we used a floor jack to lift the hitch while we attached the nuts to the bolts. It made it a lot easier that way.


I have had no issues to note. I would recommend this hitch for others that are in the market.


Did my first SUV a couple weeks ago, so figured I’d do a second one. This one went on easily. Directions were good. I was able to modify the heat shields without removing them completely from the car (just the bolts that needed to be removed anyways). I also was able to accomplish this install without a second person, though a second person would have made it significantly easier. The lead wires were a little intimidating at first, but once I got the first one figured out, the rest were easy (just need to have a little patience). I also left the wires on the bolts until I was ready to put on the nuts (threaded them through the holes on the hitch). I was also able to reattach the support for the plastic rear valence, which was not shown on the video. All in all, a 10.



Happy with product. Light duty use only - bike rack. I leave the bike rack on most of the time. Some slight surface rust where paint is chipping - no big deal though. Might require a wire brush and spray paint in a decade - car will be long gone by then!

2013 Ford Edge

Pretty easy install on 2013 edge sport. Looks great and worked perfect for cross country move towing a pretty big trailer, especially for the size of the edge. Ran the wiring through the inside in the door sills for a much cleaner look, as well as the wiring adapter I mounted on the hitch. There is no was I was going to do the "hang the cable out the back door" as was shown in one of the install videos. Instead it looks clean/factory and functions perfectly.

2013 Ford Edge

Best price i could find and was here in 3 days. Thx


Was able to install hitch without a second set of hands by using a motorcycle jack to lift the hitch into place. Once it was in place , i threaded the bolt guide , tighten the nuts and bolts and done. Seems sturdy but haven't tested it yet.


Great hitch?? Went it extremely easy and loved the free shipping. Etrailer is a great company to order from??


Awesome the fit it 100% correct for a Ford Edge sport and installation was easy


So far so good we use it four to five times a year when we go away very easy to use.

Ford Edge

Fit edge sport perfect, no trimming of fascia needed


I actually haven't installed the wiring yet. Hitch is solid tho


This hitch is well made and should last for a very long time. Easy install with concise instructions made for a one man job. Fitment was great and the hitch tucks up nice and tight under the rear valance. Looks like a factory install. I put it on a 2014 Ford Edge Sport. Looks great.

2013 Ford Edge

The hitch shipped fast. Packaging was poor, there were multiple holes in the box due to no support of the hitch inside the box.
Also to note, the newer version of this hitch DOES NOT include the extra J-Bolt hole. Product description is lacking that information.

Etrailer Expert

Jenny N.


The manufacturer Draw Tite has discontinued including the J pin hole in all their hitch lines.


Had to spray paint a few scratches to prevent rust after installation but seem to be holding great so far. Rocking Kuat Base 2.0 with extension for 1 bike on it. Very solid.

Ford Edge

The company is great to deal with and helped on my order to obtain the right Edge Sport hitch. The hitch installation was just as the instructions listed but the wiring was a little different. On the passenger side the connectors were to large to snake in behind the light and I just had to cut the two wires and solder them back together when I put the connectors in from the outside. Other than that is just took time to run the wire to the front. I would recommend the etrailer company.

Ford Edge

Great product. We bought it so we could get a hitch mount bike rack for our Ford Edge. It hasn’t given us any problems! Not too difficult to install if you follow the instructions closely.


Perfect Fit! My hitch arrived on time as described. I was sent an email when shipped and the tracking allowed me to see where my hitch was as it traveled across the country on its way to me. Great Service and communication. Thanks

2014 Ford Edge

First off, the customer service was amazing. They initially had some trouble filling my order but kept me in the loop the best they could and even offered me a similar product at one point to keep me satisfied. I will recommend them to everyone. Now onto the product. The installation videos were very helpful and made it a breeze to install. Great job guys!

2013 Ford Edge

Perfect fit for our car . we have used it many times since we installed it and it has worked flawlessly.
I would definitely use etrailer again!!!


Such a great investment for my vehicle with an easy installation!

2013 Ford Edge

Shipping was super fast.
I ordered on Saturday afternoon and it arrived Wednesday morning.
Fit was perfect, the directions were detailed and easy to follow.
Highly recommend the hitch and!!


Great hitch, quick delivery, and extremely easy to install when using the video instructions.

2011 Ford Edge

Easy to install; did it with only one person, a floor jack, and no vehicle lift (jacked the car up).


Not the easiest thing to install, but it can be installed by a do-it-yourselfer. On my 2013 Ford Edge, I was able to install it without drilling. Also, very reasonably priced.

2012 Ford Edge

Product arrived on time and in great condition. This hitch fit my car perfectly and the instructions provided were great (also used the YouTube install videos). Overall, great experience!

  • Trailer Hitch Comparison For 2014 Ford Edge Or 2014 Ford Edge Sport
    I did some research to find out what the difference is between the 2014 Ford Edge and the Edge Sport, and why there were different hitches available. They told me that the exhaust on the Sport model sits a bit lower than the other models, so they have manufactured hitches to accommodate the difference. If you have a Sport model Edge I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-E-Loader Trailer Hitch, part # 75728. This is a Class lll hitch with a 2 inch receiver opening. If you do not have the Sport...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2011 Ford Edge Sport for Bike Rack Compatibility
    For your 2011 Ford Edge Sport, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13067. This will work well with a 4 bike hitch mounted rack as long as you have more than 5-1/4 inches of clearance between the center of the hitch pin hole on your bike rack and the closest part of the rack. This trailer hitch is recessed 5-1/4 inches from the outermost part of the bumper to the center of the hitch pin hole on the receiver. I've attached a video to assist. The Draw-Tite # 75728 only has a...

  • Can a Trailer Hitch be Installed on a 2013 Ford Edge that Already has a Factory Trailer Hitch
    If the factory hitch is welded on then you will not be able to install an aftermarket hitch on your 2013 Ford Edge. Removing it could weaken the vehicle frame and/or bumper structure and if it is welded on it is likely serving a dual purpose: hitch and bumper. If it is bolted on it would just have to be unbolted and removed to install a Class III hitch like # 75728 that you have referenced. For tongue weight capacity, even if a hitch is rated for 525 pounds tongue weight, that does...

  • Recommended Bike Carrying Options for 2013 Ford Edge
    Although Ford doesn't offer the option, there is an aftermarket hitch available for your 2013 Edge Sport, the Draw-Tite Class III, part # 75728. Going this route would allow you to use your Thule rack, if you still have it. If the rack was designed to be used in a 1-1/4 inch receiver, a reducer sleeve like part # HT02 is an easy solution that would allow you to continue using your rack. If you're interested in a new hitch mounted bike rack, Thule offers the excellent Hitching Post Pro,...

  • Hitch with Best Ground Clearance for 2013 Ford Edge Sport
    The best hitch for ground clearance on your 2013 Ford Edge Sport is the Draw Tite part # 75728 that you referenced because it has a crosstube that sits above the hitch opening which means that only the hitch tube will hang down. While that may not seem like it's much better in terms of ground clearance it is better than a hitch with a crosstube that hangs at the same height. Since only the center hangs down you wouldn't have as much interference as you make a turn into a driveway with...

    The Yakima Full Back 2 Bike Strap Rack - Trunk Mount - Adjustable Arms # Y02634 is confirmed to fit your 2013 Ford Edge Sport. This is designed to be compatible with most spoilers, however, it will indeed put some added stress on the spoiler. It works with most frame designs, but to make sure it will work well with your large frame carbon fiber bikes I would use Adapter Bar # SR0500 along with the Yakima Full Back 2 Bike Rack.

  • Is Any Fascia or Bumper Trimming Required to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2011 Ford Edge Sport
    When installing Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75728 on a 2011 Ford Edge, there is no trimming of the rear fascia, bumper, or diffuser. You will only need to trim some heat shields under the vehicle in order for the hitch to fit properly. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend 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 wiring,...

  • Height Of Trailer Hitch Receiver Opening On 2011 Ford Edge
    We have several hitches that will work for your 2011 Ford Edge. The height of the hitches vary due to the type Edge you have. If you have the Sport model it will cause the hitch to be a little closer to the ground. If you do not have the Sport model I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 75728. I have attached a video that shows the hitch installed on a 2011 Ford Edge. The distance from the top of the receiver tube to the ground is 11-3/4 inches. If you subtract 3 inches for...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2013 Ford Edge For Bike Rack
    Best hitch for carrying a 3 bike rack for a 2013 Ford Edge would be the Draw Tite part # 75728 which is a 2 inch hitch that has plenty of capacity needed for carrying the weight of your bikes. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. We don't have recommended installers or this hitch but the good news is that trailer hitch installs are pretty basic for mechanics so any mechanic in your area with a decent reputation would have no problem doing this.

    The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75728 is for the Ford Edge Sport and will not fit your 2013 Ford Edge SEL. On you SEL model instead you need Draw-Tite # 75992. It is designed to fit models with dual exhaust. I've attached a picture of the hitch on an SEL with dual exhaust that I found in the install details.

The link at right will show you all hitch options for the non-Sport version and these include both 1-1/4-inch Class II and 2-inch Class III types.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch And Bike Carrier That Can Allow Rear Hatch To Open On 2011 Ford Edge
    There are no trunk-mount bike carriers available, including the Thule Passage, part # TH910XT, that allow the rear hatch to be opened with the bike carrier installed. It could come off and damage the carrier, the bike, or the vehicle. If you are opening the rear hatch frequently, I recommend installing a trailer hitch if you do not have one and a hitch-mounted bike carrier. If your 2011 Ford Edge is not the Sport model I recommend part # 75992. This is a Class lll hitch and it has a...

    We carry 2 trailer hitch receivers to fit your 2012 Ford Edge; the Curt part # C13067 and the Draw-Tite part # 75728. Between them I prefer the Draw-Tite simply for aesthetics. With the Curt hitch you can see the entire crosstube on the Edge but the Draw-Tite only shows the receiver tube opening. Take a look at the pictures I've attached. For wiring to power the trailer's lights use part # 118515. It plugs in behind the tail lights and has a power wire that runs to the Edge's battery....

  • Is Rear Fascia Support Re-Attached When Installing DrawTite Hitch # 75709 on 2013 Ford Edge
    The rear bumper fascia center support is not re-attached when installing the DrawTite Hitch # 75728 on a 2013 Ford Edge. The fastener that normally secures the fascia center support to the underside of the vehicle is re-attached to the vehicle but the support arm itself is to be folded up out of the way between the bumper cover and the actual bumper structure. There should be no issue with excessive movement of the rear fascia since it is still secured at all other points. The receiver...

Unlike the Curt C13067, the Draw-Tite model doesn't require that a safety strap like # 18050 be used for hitch mounted accessories like bike racks or cargo carriers. If you'll be using the hitch for towing purposes, you'll also need a few other items to complete your towing system: Trailer wiring harness, part # 118515 Ball mount kit, part...

    The two Class III hitch options available for your 2012 Ford Edge Sport are the Curt # C13067 and the Draw-Tite # 75728. I recommend the Draw-Tite for its higher weight capacity, no-drill installation and for the freedom from having to use a support strap # 18050 for non-trailer loads like bike racks, a warranty requirement for the Curt hitch. An install video for a 2011 model year is linked to illustrate the process, which includes temporary lowering of the exhaust and heat shield trimming. The...

  • Do All Trailer Hitches For 2014 Ford Edge SEL Require Drilling
    I can understand not wanting to drill holes to mount a hitch, though the Draw-Tite # 75728 is only a fit the Sport model and will be unable to fit your 2014 Ford Edge SEL. I did double check with the manufacturer for you just to be certain. So to add a hitch to your '14 Edge SEL you will need to drill 17/32" holes in your frame rails for installation. Drilling to install a hitch is something that is pretty frequent and a lot of people do, even in areas there is bad weather, and you can...

The only trimming involved is on the heat shields and this is the case for all of the hitches for your 2013 Ford Edge Sport.

If instead you do have a Sport model you'd want the # 75728. These are Class III hitches which have 2 inch openings which I believe is what you are looking for since this is the preferred size for most people.

Other than that, both hitches are absolutely identical in appearance, have the same weight rating, would install in the same manner and share the same installation instructions.

    We carry hitches from two manufacturers, Cequent Performance Products, who manufactures Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite and Curt Manufacturing. I would say that in terms of overall build quality and the quality of the finish, the hitches from both companies are pretty equal. In terms of choosing a hitch for your 2011 Edge, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class III hitch, part # 75992 or for Edge Sport models, the Draw-Tite # 75728.

I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-E-Loader Trailer Hitch Reciever, part # 75728. This is a Class III trailer hitch with a 2" reciever, giving you access to a wide range of both bike racks...
