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. The technicians at etrailer perform hitch installations on a daily basis, making them a valuable resource for do-it-yourselfers. The one-on-one, personal service you'll receive comes straight from an expert in the towing and automotive field. We've installed it, we've wired it and we've towed with it, so whatever your question, we can answer it.

If you will be installing this alone, be ready for some WORK. Other than that, the thing fits as required and looks like it will be totally acceptable. Happily, it fit the car really well, so while I was schooching around on my creeper, I was able to hold it it place with just a 4x4 on a jack. (Keep the 4x4 short of the exhaust...) And their "snakes" needed help.After an hour of fighting I gave up and made a snake of bailing wire, to which I bent their snake, and then things went forward. Again: great fit. Obnoxious install - but that was predictable. 131992

A great experience from the start. Easy ordering on the website. Great video instructions. Wonderful email follow up from ordering to delivery. Actually delivered faster than the estimate. The eTrailer.com employees really care and it shows. I am not a mechanic but I am handy. I installed it myself - no help. 2009 Ford Escape. I didn't need to jack up the car. I actually hung it from some frame holes with wire and then slipped in some old bolts temporarily. Once it was at an appropriate level, I snaked in the bolts and it worked like a charm. I found that using oversized holes in the frame for snaking purposes was a lot easier than trying to snake through the entire frame. So, if you have any oversized holes near the target holes, I would try to use to get the bolts and brackets through. In my case, I was fortunate and the holes for this purpose didn't need to be made larger. Watch the videos that are provided!! I dropped the exhaust out of the way and I also dropped the spare tire to give myself enough room for installation. Once it was installed, the exhaust and the spare went back into position with no problem at all. I work slowly and probably not too efficiently. But less than two hours unassisted was a lot less than I thought it would be. I've uploaded some pictures of the finished installation. I can't say enough tood things. Price, quality and service at the top! Thanks so much. 33438

I think It might be overkill for the 4cyl., but the price difference makes a towing issue not the hitch's. Unlike the class 2, the class three did not have a spacer. I didn't even jack up the Escape and tinkered with putting the wrong 4 washers on, then changing my mind. By myself, the hitch was an easy install. A little wondering if the hitch was square and level, but once you look at it. The receiver is off center with the tubes. Not necessarily in a bad way. 363095

Installed without a hitch. lol. At 62 years old, lying on the ground in winter is not my idea of fun, but having watched the video, it was installed in 30 minutes, numb fingers and all. Ordered it on Sunday night, rec'd it on Thursday. Only problem was with customer service. I never rec'd notification that it was shipped until after I rec'd the hitch. Two days later, I picked up my new trailer and towed it 120 miles with not problem. It worked as expected Thanks 63769

The hitch is well built and sturdy, good instructions for installation and looks like it will hold up well. Some of the paint flaked off on the hitch around some of the corners during shipping. Also some flaked off over the welds. I don't think this is a big deal but just wanted to be honest. The hitch looks a million times better on the back of my Escape than some of the others I've seen out there. By far the best looking hitch you can get. No gaudy square rails under the truck to see, or unfinished welded edges, etc. Installation took me about an hour. I used a jack stand to hold up one end while I lifted the other. It was cumbersome but it worked. I recommend taping the bolts in place so they don't pop back into the frame rail when you lift the hitch up. The Yakima Double Down 4 is well built and requires a small amount of assembly. I think its going to be a great item, haven't carried any bikes yet but plan to this weekend. One thing, I wish e-Trailer would have suggested the Yakima Deadlock to go with the rack. I'm definitely going to want the lock for the rack and bikes. I will have to place another order but would have preferred to buy it at the same time. Awesome service from e-Trailer. I will definitely shop here again. I appreciate the continued correspondence about my purchase. 42820

I've put bolt on receiver hitches on other vehicles before. This particular model had some gotchas. First, not all the right nuts came with it. See the picture. One of the nuts was missing, and it was replaced with a smaller size that isn't in parts list at all. We had to go to a hardware store to get the final nut needed. The Escape has full box tube frame members. You have to use the ingenious bolt pulling wires included to thread into an opening, pull the blocks and bolts through the frame, and then out the right holes. It takes a long time to figure out the proper route from the instructions - they are the worst exploded engineering views I've ever seen from an ease of comprehension aspect. The videos are worth watching before installing. I went through both block-n-bolt pulling wires - they give you two. I wrecked the first one with half the bolts pulled, and by the time I had the last bolt through, it had wrecked the second one. Whew! That was close. I used jackstands to hold the hitch up while I bolted it up. You need to have deep well sockets with extension to do this part well. You will have parts left over, since this comes with all the parts for all possible Escape tow package and transmission configurations. Overall, it is a very well made, precision, solid hitch. More strength than we will ever need on this vehicle. Make sure you have all the right parts before you begin installation. 184819

I ordered my hitch on a Saturday and it arrived on Wednesday. The shipping box the hitch came in was damaged so I was afraid parts might be missing. Fortunately, all parts and instructions were still in the box because they were taped to the hitch. I removed the hitch and installation parts and did a quick review of the instructions. The printed instructions are not as helpful as the short video on the website so I recommend watching the video first. They send 2 pull wires. I destroyed the first wire pulling the first four bolts and blocks through. I used the second and final wire to pull the remaining 2 bolts and blocks through without destroying it. The trick is to carefully thread the wire off of the bolt by trying to keep its size integrity. I stretched the first wire too much when removing from the first bolt. Since I did the installation by myself, after installing the most forward bolt and nut on each side, I figured out that I could place a bolt through one of the rear holes from the outside to hold the hitch in place while I threaded the other bolt through the frame channel. It worked well. I did not have to use jack stands or rope to hold the hitch on place by using that technique. It took me a total of 40 minutes from opening the box and removing the contents to tightening the last bolt and pushing the exhaust pipe back onto the post. The only thing that I think would be a bonus would be to send a bolt puller wire for each bolt. They send 2 but since there are 6 bolts, some extra pull wires would be great. I did notice some slag (small bumps) on the Tubing that made the finish look less that perfect. The slag is obviously from the welding during the manufacturing process. The manufacturer could do some final cleaning after the welding process before it goes to the paint shop. At the end of the day, the damaged box, pull wires, and a little slag on the finish were not enough of an issue for me to give this hitch a less than stellar rating. It's well worth the money and I will recommend etrailer.com to others. 414149

It was pretty easy after realizing the back side of the instructions was a different way or for a diffrent sub model i guess. It also says to torque the bolts afterwards to a specific lb. So ppl may want to be weary of that. I did have to watch a couple videos before i finally understood and theres a couple videos out there some videos that are made use diffrent parts for the set up from (etrailer) so that was confusing also. But overall id give it a 4 out 5 856457

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

  • Recommended Hitch Fit for 2009 Ford Escape Hybrid
    I'd recommend a Curt Class III receiver for your Escape. Curt makes a great product with a durable powder coat finish. The hitch you need will depend on if your Escape is already equipped with the factory 1-1/4 inch hitch. If it is, you'll want to use # C13651. If it isn't, use # 13650. As confirmed by Curt, these hitches are compatible with the hybrid model, and the only slight issue you might run into is if your Escape is equipped with the exhaust dampener as shown in the provided...

  • Recommended Equipment to Tow a Trailer with Brakes with a 2006 Mazda Tribute V6
    To get your 2006 Mazda Tribute V6 ready to tow your mini RV you'll need a trailer hitch, wiring for both the trailer lights and brake system (with a brake controller), and most likely a weight distribution system. From what I could find in the owner's manual it looks like your vehicle has a max trailer weight rating of 3,500 lbs but you'll want to confirm that in your copy of the owner's manual. Below is a list of the parts that I recommend for towing with your Tribute: Trailer Hitch...

  • What is Towing Capacity of 2012 Ford Escape with Draw Tite Hitch 75751 Installed
    The Draw Tite hitch part # 75751 has a towing capacity of 4,500 lbs so as long as your 2012 Ford Escape has at least the same capacity as this you'd be able to tow up to 4,500 lbs. My research on your vehicle states it would only have a capacity of 1,500 lbs so even with this hitch installed you'd be limited to that as it's the weakest component.

Therefore, I cannot recommend you use this vehicle to tow a 4,500 lb trailer. If you find a trailer within the above capacity then you will need a trailer hitch, trailer wiring, and ball mount/hitch ball in order to tow it. For a trailer hitch, I recommend using the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75751 which is Class III rated and has a 2"...
