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.

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.

I'm giving this a two, I think that this will be a good product when installed. This is the reason for the two tho....I ordered the hitch and the wire harness together. I came home from work today excited to put the hitch on and wire up my car. The pictures show what I came home to.....no protection no box nothing on the hitch. there were dings and scratches tho....considering what it is those wont bother me, but still ship your product in boxes and show your customers that you care. Where is the wire harness? I called and the very nice lady said they usually shrink wrap the harness to one of the bars.....REALLY, gee I wonder why its not there. She said she would send one out no charge tomorrow....ummm I already paid for it why would you charge me? I wanted this set up by this weekend, you failed I would have been happy if you overnighted it to me, now I have to wait til next week. then one of the wires broke so I'm hoping I can retrieve the bolt and plate grrrrrrr. I may be happy once its done but right now it only gets two stars and that is being generous. 434624

Very pleased with it. It is a battle to install without the car on jacks or ramps although it is possible. I only thought of it after I had lost a bolt into the frame (it was not hard to fish it out), but turning the bolt far enough into the fishwire thread might make it possible to get both washer and nut on while the wire is still on the bolt (the washer should certainly go on while the wire is in place). Then the wire can just be pulled off once the nut catches (the threaded part will be unwrapped). Although it took a considerable amount of time to install, I think it would take less than 15 minutes if I were do to another one 457352

I have yet to install the hitch. It looks well built. With that being said, the packaging was questionable. The plastic wrapping had allowed the edges to be exposed and there is paint chipped off on the edges of the hitch. I will have to paint it or have it sand blaster and powder coated so it doesn't turn into a pile of rust. Not impressed with the handling of my $151 hitch. Its gonna cost $10 for spray paint or $125 to have it sand blasted and powder coated correctly. I cant post pictures because the hitch is at home and I am at work right now. 573721

It was easy to install after the side brackets were bent outward in order to fit the frame. Apparrently the hitch is does not get welded in a very good fixture, otherwise I would have expected it to fit without having to straightening it out first. 406234

This was entirely too easy to install. Only thing missing from the kit is knuckle protectors. I had actually planned to i stall this with a friend since I had never messed with something g like this but I got tired of seeing it in my garage for a week. I took it out of its packaging, saw a few places where the paint had been damaged and hit them with some spraypaint I had laying around. The wires to pull the bolts through the subframes were surprisingly easy to use. The part that took me the longest was trying to make sure I didn't push the bolts back through the holes when trying to get the nuts started . Overall I say this was well worth the 30 minutes it took to install. Wear mechanics gloves if you have them since it is easy to scrape knuckles on the sheet metal of your car. 281442

i installed hitch by myself. it took me about 45 mins. I first widened the holes in the frame in order to fit the bolts threw. then I hung one side of the hitch by just by using the bolt and placing them into the holes, then i did the same on the other side. now that i had the hitch temporarily up i removed one of the bolts and fished it threw the frame. i did each one like this till i was done. 312186

I ordered a hitch for my ' 2014 Escape from ETrailer. It was delivered 5 days later, which included a weekend. The employee I spoke to was Jamie A. who was knowledgeable, and friendly. I just finished installing it today. I did watch their install video and they had it nailed. I had no problems at all. If I had it to do again I would get help when I did the actual installation ( Which they mentioned in the video) I used 3 empty kitty litter buckets and 2 x 4 blocks to hold the hitch up during the install which helped a lot. The rear end of the Escape was up on 2 oil change ramps, Good people to deal with, I recommend them. 356823

Last summer, I bought a hitch and lighting harness for my 2015 Escape from etrailer. They were shipped quickly and fit perfectly! Unfortunately, the Escape met with dire circumstances recently and was totalled. I was devastated, but the insurance company came through and I was able to upgrade to a 2016 Escape. I have a little trailer I use to haul mulch and home materials and I wanted a hitch. Right away, I thought of my last experience and Tuesday late afternoon I ordered a new hitch and lighting via internet. The shipping would have been free, but I upped to get it sooner, so I paid a reasonable and discounted $.$$ to receive it in three days. I got it in less than 48 hours from the time I ordered!!!! Once again, it fit perfectly and practically jumped onto the vehicle by itself! LOL Doing my happy dance and I'm 70 years old! THANKS eTRAILER!!!!

As you described it in your videos it was very easy to install. It took about 30 mins to install. Great idea to provide the bolt pull wires to get the bolts though the frame. I would recommend this product to friends. I will be using it to hold a carrier to haul my electric scooter. 525399

I bought this on a whim and have 0 regrets. The install went smooth after overcoming one small issue which I'll detail below. Not going to go over the install as the video makes this idiot proof. 1) Prior to install I purchased a $5 metal filer from Lowes 2) Spent a good 30 seconds filing each of the openings showed in the video, this made assembly very easy 3) The snag I got to was after I had pulled the bolts through and was screwing on the nuts... 4) CHECK THE SIZE OF THE NUTS that come in the package. In my packaging I was given 3x nuts that were 5/16 and 1x nut that was the correct size at 7/16. I spent an embarrassing amount of time trying to thread a 5/16 nut on a 7/16 bolt. It wasn't until I tried each of the nuts that came in the packaging separately that I discovered 3 of the 4 were the wrong size. 5) To verify this I took all 4 to Lowes and checked them on the nut size finder they have... 6) After buying 3 of the correct size the install finished very quickly and I am very happy with my purchase. This is a great trailer hitch and I would have given 5 stars if I had received the correct components. 570775

Fast and free shipping.The installation of the hitch was very easy. There is no need to have special skills nor lift the vehicle. Between a friend and I installed it in around 20 mins to my 2014 Escape. The only thing I did not like was the limitation of the liftgate sensor area. It works but you have to play a lot to find the right spot where the sensor works in the limited area. Other than that it works pretty good and I am happy with it! 124188

The trailer hitch for my 2013 Ford Escape SEL was installed by myself but not without challenges. First off the good news is that all the holes of the trailer hitch matched up perfectly with the 2013 Escape frame. Also all the wiring lengths and connectors matched up perfectly with the 2013 Escape. I would highly recommend installing the wiring harness first and the trailer hitch second. I did it the other way around and the presence of the hitch made routing the wiring much more challenging. Now for the challenging part. A lot of the following comments won't make a lot of sense unless you are actually installing a trailer hitch and are reading the enclosed instructions. On the wire harness side the instructions call for removing for 8mm screws on each side of the lifted rear tail gate to remove the rear light assemblies. What the instructions don't tell you is that two of the screws on each side are located under plastic cosmetic covers the size of a quarter. You have to carefully pry these covers off with a small flat bladed screw driver. Next, the routing of the tail light connector wiring assemblies up from underneath the rear of the Escape is very challenging. I found I had to use the long, black #12 wire supplied for connection to the battery to "pull" the connector assemble up to the tail light area on both sides. I first threaded the black wire down from the tail light assemblies and then looped and taped it to one on the cable connectors. Pulling up the cable connectors was challenging since there is very little space especially near the tail lights. I had to pull the Escape side panel out with a lot of effort to make enough room for the connectors. Once the connector were through and in the tail light area there was plenty of room for the wiring and connectors. These comments apply to both tail gate areas. Attaching the white ground wire to the car was a challenge. I first attached it to a sheet metal bracket that hold the bumper on. Bad idea...when I tested the completed assembly it didn't work and the problem turned out to be no ground connection. I went against the instructions and drilled a tap hole in the car frame square beam on the rear drivers side and attached the ground wire there...presto...everything then worked. The last wiring harness challenge concerned routing the black wire from the battery compartment to the trailer wiring harness module on the drivers side rear. First off...it took me ten minutes to find the battery! The Escape engine compartment is really packed tight and it turns out the battery is stashed back against the firewall and has a plastic snap off cover that completely hides the battery and the cover is not labeled "battery"! Once I found the battery accessing the positive (+) terminal was easy. Routing the black wire from the battery throughout the engine compartment was very challenging. I had to use a stick from underneath the Escape to "catch" the black wire and pull it through. Once the black wire was through routing it (and tie wrapping it) to the undercarriage along the drivers side door was straight forward. Installing the trailer hitch frame had it's challenges as well. I found it easiest to thread the pull wires from the bolt hole end to the access hole on the Escape frame. I put the coiled spring end of the pull wire through the bolt hole first and used needle nosed plyers to "catch" it at the access hole. My biggest challenge was the supplied mounting bolt heads were too large to get through the access holes. I had to use my grinding wheel to shave off a sixteenth of an inch off the bolt heads (resulting in a small flat area) to get the bolts to feed through the access holes. Once I did this the bolts and brackets fed through to the mounting holes pretty easily. In order to work easily under the rear of the Escape I found I had to raise the rear wheels up six inches (I made a ramp of wood 2"x8"s stacked on each other.). Since I was working alone I used wood blocks to hold up the trailer hitch frame near it's final mounting position. Once I had a mounting bolt through a hitch mounting hole and before removing the pull wire from the bolt I took a piece of 1/4" by 6" long piece of duct tape and wrapped it around the mounting bolt and attached the ends to the hitch frame to prevent the bolt falling back into the Escape frame when I removed the pull wire from the mounting bolt. Once the first bolt was secured with a nut it was easy to move the hitch frame into position for securing the other three bolts. Hint: don't tighten any bolts until all bolts are secured. I could now do a second 2013 Escape trailer hitch in half the time...but I won't be doing that. Hopefully my experience will make your experience easier. 56035

This is my second Draw-Tite hitch purchased from etrailer and when in the market I will come back. The package came quickly although it had a giant hole ripped in the box. However, upon inspection the hitch was still in good condition and thankfully the parts bag had been attached to the hitch so it wasn't lost. This is my second time installing a hitch using the fish wires to secure the bolts, but this one didn't go exactly as planned. One fish wire snapped and I lost the bolt and backing plate in the rail on the vehicle. It took buying a flexible magnetic wand and some patience to get the parts back out then re-used one of the other wires to secure the bolt. I might recommending only putting the fish wires for the two bolts nearest the rear of vehicle through first then the others to avoid the troubles I had in the wire getting caught and breaking. Also I took the advice of another installer and took a grinder to the sides of the bolt head to make it fit into the slot on the car to avoid needing to cut or bend the vehicle opening. A second set of hands is definitely a near requirement on this installation as the hitch is heavy and bulky. Once the bolts were in place rest of the install was pretty simple. The cramped location on the bolts towards the front of the vehicle made getting a torque wrench in to tighten the bolts impossible. We use the hitch for bike rack and it works great. 683835

I was very pleased with the ease of ordering, the video of installation was great. The hitch arrived on time and all parts were included, nothing missing. I was able to install the hitch very easily by myself with only the need for a second person to lift in place, the fit was perfect. Then when I stood back to view my finished work something was wrong, the frame of hitch was straight and level but the receiver was welded with a tilt to the right, my use of the hitch is for a bike rack and now the rack leans to the right. Function is ok but the view shows poor workmanship on product that is manufactured in Mexico. I can only wish it was made in USA. 416677

2015 Ford Escape Class 3 hitch will never be fully weight utilized; however, I wanted most stability for a mountain bike carrier, and the sale price could not be beat. Did the installation alone in the garage. I used the packaging cardboard as a floor mat allowing me to slide comfortably under the muffler. Installation took me an hour and a half alone. Do watch the excellent etrailer video before installing at home. I watched it twice. On my Escape I had to carefully lift the hitch right side front corner into position first as the starboard plate lip must slide over and past a small vehicle protrusion. Not overly difficult if you are patient. One suggestion may be helpful. Screw the wire bolt coils past the first three bolt threads. This permits you to mount the washer and screw the nut, when ready, a couple threads while the wire coils are securely attached to the bolt. Once there is no danger of losing the bolt inside the frame rail the wire can be pulled perpendicular off the bolt, which of course ruins the coil, but working alone I found this much easier than trying to hold the bolt from slipping into the frame rail while trying to unscrew the wire coil. 289609

Took me about an hour with a helper for a few minutes just to get one bolt started thru the hitch (we are in our early seventies). Great product, good instructions and be sure to watch the video which was very helpful. There were no surprises from ordering, shipping or installing, all went well without a "hitch". Wish every project I do would go as smoothly. Good quality hitch. 388506

2014 Ford Escape

After figuring out we would not have enough room in our 2014 Ford Escape for all of our luggage along with the five passengers on our way to Dallas to catch a flight overseas, we soon decided a cargo carrier would be our best bet to haul the extra luggage on. Therefore we searched the internet for prices on a good, sturdy and well constructed trailer hitch to mount the cargo carrier on. It didn't take long and we found "etrailer" and could see right off not only were they cheaper than the others carrying the same item or similar items, but their reviews were great and their instructional video made the job of installing the trailer hitch as easy as it gets. Did I mention that I ordered on a Monday and Thursday it was sitting on our porch. The hitch is very well made and the finish looks great. The same day it arrived my son came by and after seeing the hitch his response was "lets put it on". We sat down and watched the video one more time and then proceeded to install the hitch where the car sat in the driveway. There was really no need to raise the car higher off the ground as we had plenty of room to work. We actually used a chain saw file to enlarge the holes on the frame that the bolts and rectangular steel go thru with the wires and it probably took around five minutes on each one, With the holes enlarged we put the wires thru that was included with the hitch and snaked them into the holes where the bolts would go to tighten the hitch to the frame. We then lifted the hitch into place, placing the wires thru the holes on the hitch first. It was a good, tight fit and the bolt holes on the hitch fit perfect to those on the frame on our Escape. The snug fit only aided in making holding the hitch in place easier but was not so snug that we couldn't put it right were we needed it to be and we then proceeded to jiggle the wires around one by one as we installed the washers and nuts on each bolt one at a time. It will surprise anyone who has doubts as to how simple the process is. All in all, I would estimate the time we spent installing the hitch at around 30 minutes which includes filing the holes a sixteenth of an inch or so to get the bolts and rectangular metal pieces to slip thru. The hitch looks factory installed and is as good as anyone could want and sits high enough off of the ground that there should be no problem with the cargo carrier scrapping the bottom. Etrailer just made our up coming trip a lot less stressful and I am sure we will be using this hitch in other ways such as pulling trailers etc. 343041

We have used this hitch numerous times over the year and could not be happier, Weve used it for a cargo carrier as well as pulling a trailer and have no complaints at all. It is a heavy duty hitch that truly serves the purpose it was intended for.

MuchEasier than I thought.... I installed the hitch in my driveway within 45 minutes. There is no need to remove the muffler! Hitch fit perfectly. It would have been a little easier with two sets if hands. Customer service was outstanding and the online video was a great help. Not sure why the installation video removes the muffler on the 2016 Ford escape, but it is not necessary. I think I can install a second hitch in 15 to 20 minutes after doing it one time. I plan on using this hitch for a 5 bike rack and a small trailer.I am very happy with my purchase. 361835

I purchased my trailer hitch hoping I would't have to take it to the professionals to install it. I watched the video, hit the garage and had it installed faster than I imagined. I keep two size trailer ball hitches next to my spare tire because people have had trailers to haul and nothing to pull them with. Open the back end, select the right ball and off we go.

The hitch arrived well-wrapped with the hardware tucked inside the receiver, which was clever. I knew from earlier reviews to not expect a box at all, so that was not a surprise. Shipping was quick and tracking was accurate and up-to-date. The instructions that came with the hitch were moderately unhelpful, but the video online made installation straightfoward. Additionally, my handy partner helped interpret some of the directions and provided much of the heavy lifting. We did need to slightly enlarge both frame openings in order to use the brilliant bolt fishing technique. We used a Dremel, which made quick work of it. The four-bolt install was fantastic and easy with the support of a jack; it would still have worked fine without it, but it was nice to have. The finished product was tidy and although it does decrease the clearance on the vehicle, the overall look is just fine. 803646

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch And Wiring For 2013 Ford Escape SEL 2.0
    The photos did not seem to make it so I will make some recommendations that will work for your 2013 Escape. The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2013 Escape is the Draw-Tite Max Frame # 75758. This is a Class lll hitch and it has a 2-inch receiver opening. Since it sounds like you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop....

  • Least Visible Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Ford Escape
    The install times for these hitches on your 2017 Ford Escape vary depending on the style of the hitch. The difference between the Draw-Tite Hitch # 75758 and the Curt Hitch # C13186 that you asked about is that the Curt sits above the muffler, while the Draw-Tite sits below it; which is where that install time comes into play. The only part of the hitch that is visible on the Curt hitch is the receiver itself. I have attached two pictures for you to see-the first is the Draw-Tite and the...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2013 Ford Escape
    For your 2013 Ford Escape, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-E-Loader Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 75758. This is an easy install and will give you a versatile hitch compatible with the vast majority of bike racks. This installation will take a professional shop about 20-30 minutes and anyone slightly mechanical to install in about 40 minutes if you choose to install yourself. This is a durable hitch that will restrict your hands free liftgate if installed to the...

  • Will Motion Sensor Still Function on 2018 Nissan Rogue with Trailer Hitch Installed
    For your 2018 Nissan Rogue I recommend the Draw-Tite Class II Frame Receiver Hitch # 36542. This Class II hitch is confirmed to fit your vehicle and will use existing holes in its frame for a no-drill installation. The motion sensor on the rear gate will still work with the hitch installed. The only difference will be that you will likely have to move your foot to either side of the hitch receiver for the sensor to pick up your movement. The hitch will not cause the gate to open up by itself....

    The Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Round Tube Receiver Hitch # 75758 referenced in your question is confirmed to fit your 2017 Ford Escape, as long as it does not have the factory Class II towing package. This Class III hitch will use existing holes in the vehicle's frame for a no-drill installation. I have attached an installation video on your Escape that you can use for reference. Then for a trailer wiring harness, I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118715 if...

  • Can a Trailer Hitch Be Installed on a 2014 Ford Escape Titanium with Hands-Free Lift Gate
    You can still use the hands-free lift-gate on your 2014 Ford Escape Titanium with Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75758 installed. The sensor area will just be limited to either side of the vehicle near the exhaust pipes. The instructions which I have linked for you, show this. This is going to be the case with all of the hitches for the 2014 Escape. To complete your towing set up I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It includes 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and a...

  • Will the Hands-Free Liftgate Feature Work With a Trailer Hitch on a 2013 Ford Escape
    Installing any aftermarket trailer hitch on your 2013 Ford Escape will not completely eliminate the use of your Hands-Free Liftgate feature, but it will limit the sensor areas to either side of the vehicle (see photo). The Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch # 75758 that you referenced will fit all models of the 2013 Ford Escape If you were planning on doing any towing, then you will need a few more items to complete your towing set up. You will need a wiring harness to power the lights...

  • Will Trailer Hitch fit 2018 Ford Escape Titanium with Hands-Free Liftgate Sensor
    Yes, the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75758 is a fit for a 2018 Ford Escape Titanium with the hands-free liftgate sensor. The sensor will still work though you will need to kick your foot on either side of the hitch receiver as opposed to the center. I do recommend taking a look at the Draw-Tite # 75782 over the aforementioned hitch because it has a concealed crosstube as opposed to it being exposed, which not only keeps the rear of your '18 Escape looking clean, but it is also going to...

  • Does Hitch for 2017 Ford Escape Allow Hands Free Liftgate to Function

  • Is the Sway Control on a 2017 Ford Escape Necessary for Towing
    I checked the online version of the owner's manual for your 2017 Ford Escape and it looks like every 2017 Escape comes with the added sway control feature. It can be turned off in the information display if you choose to do so. It will not increase the weight capacity of your vehicle, but it can be helpful to help prevent some sway. The type of sway control that is integrated into the Escape is okay, but not what I would choose to use as a permanent sway control solution. The first...

  • What is Best Class III hitch for 2017 Ford Escape
    Draw Tite makes the best Class III hitches for your 2017 Ford Escape as they have the best capacities and the best prices. The two they offer are the part # 75758 which has a round cross tube which some think is slightly less visible and has the best price and the part # 75782 which has a square cross tube. Both of these hitches fit all models of the 2017 Escape. If it were me I would easily pick the # 75758 for just the two reasons I mentioned. I attached an install video for you to...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Ford Escape for Cargo Carrier
    The Draw-Tite part # 75758 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your 2013 Ford Escape and has a tongue weight capacity of 525 lbs. This should be more than enough capacity for your cargo carrier, but you should consider the weight of the cargo carrier plus the weight of your cargo and be sure that these two together do not exceed the capacity of this hitch, or the tongue weight of your vehicle that is listed in the owners manual. I attached an install video for you to check...

  • Factory Hitch vs. Drawtite Receiver on 2017 Ford Escape
    The sway control system that your 2017 Ford Escape would have is a system that actively applies the brake on certain axles when sway is detected to minimize it. It's certainly not a requirement for towing and does not increase the capacity at all. I would go with the Draw Tite hitch part # 75758 as it is a confirmed fit and would work well. This hitch has great capacities at 4,500 lbs total trailer weight and 675 lbs tongue weight. We have friction sway control units like the part...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch And Trailer Wiring For 2016 Ford Escape
    The easiest to install trailer hitch we offer for your 2016 Ford Escape is the Draw-Tite Hitch, part # 75758. This is a Class lll hitch and it has a 2-inch receiver opening. Installing this hitch requires no drilling or trimming. It is a bolt-on installation. The trailer wiring I recommend is the T-One Wiring Harness, part # 118566.

  • Will Aftermarket Hitch Receiver # 75758 Interfere with Hands-free Lift Gate Option
    Some of the hitches that fit your 2015 Ford Escape with the Hands-free Lift Gate option will block one or more of the hands-free lift gate sensors but those at the side of vehicle near the exhaust pipes will still function as they do now. This just means that with one of these particular hitches installed if you are standing in a specific position at the rear of the vehicle, one or more of the sensors may not detect your presence but the others will. You have the option to choose a 2-inch...

  • How Does Install of Draw Tite Hitch on 2017 Ford Escape Affect Ground Clearance
    I attached a picture that shows the Draw Tite hitch part # 75758 installed on a similar Ford Escape as your 2017 model to show you what the ground clearance will look like. From the bottom of the hitch down to the ground is going to measure right at 11 inches. Since this vehicle has a pretty short distance from the rear axle of the vehicle to the rear of the vehicle this ground clearance figure wouldn't be bad. I attached an install video for this hitch on a 2018 Escape for you to...

  • Activating the Foot Sensor on a 2017 Ford Escape With a Trailer Hitch Receiver Installed
    This is a very common issue with the vehicles that have the foot sensors on the rear bumper so that you can open the back hatch by sweeping your foot. I spoke with one of our manufacturers not that long ago and they said that when vehicles which use the foot sensor, like your 2017 Ford Escape, have a trailer hitch receiver installed, like the Draw-Tite # 75758, you won't be able to sweep your foot like normal. Since there is metal covering some of the sensor, you will have to kick your...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2017 Ford Escape That Provides More Ground Clearance
    There are no trailer hitches designed for your 2017 Escape that will not take up some of the ground clearance. All of the hitches have a receiver tube that is below the rear bumper as shown in the attached photo. I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-E-Loader Trailer Hitch, part # 75758. The hitch attaches to the same locations on the vehicle frame but the receiver tube is level with the main horizontal tube of the hitch. Many of the other hitches have the receiver tube welded to the bottom...
