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.

Installed in just about 1 hour, I needed to step drill the center hole for clearance for plates and carriage bolts. The fish wires worked great and easy install. My Subaru Forester is ready to go camping and fishing. Thank you etrailer. 552634

The packaging was not sturdy enough and the box arrived with one end having been taped up by USPS. One end of the hitch had broken through the box and the paint chipped off from being exposed during shipping. The box seemed too big for the item. I would suggest etrailer (or the drop shipper) bubble wrap or use cardboard for the ends of the hitch and then have the hitch pull-tied down inside the box so it stays in place during shipping and won't come loose and bust out of the box. Otherwise it fits as described on my 2018 Subaru Forester. NOTE: Pay close attention to the instructions, **On the Forester you have to remove and trim the muffler heat shield. DO NOT replace all four (4) heat shield bolts when you go to attach the hitch, leave the rearmost bolt out** The hitch will hold the shield on and if you replace the rearmost heat shield bolt it will interfere with hitch mount and the hitch will not sit flush on the frame. The installation video does not cover this, but the written instructions do, so it can be confusing. 571764

Less than 1 year old and already has significant visible rust. This is on a garage kept vehicle! Works well and price was fair but product should not look like this in such a short time. 565700


Comments
Rust will sometimes form from moisture in the air and salt on the roads. If rust has started to form you can take find sandpaper and sand it off as much as possible then cover that spot with a rustoleum type of paint. It is a good idea to check over the hitch for any scratches or deep gauges and paint over these areas to prevent future rust issues. I have attached a help article on preventing rust.

I chose etrailer.com for my Hitch because of the good background information they provide for the hitch's installation (the good price was also a major consideration). This is my second installation of a etrailer.com hitch on two different cars. The hitch arrived in good condition even though the box it was shipped in was lost in transit. I reviewed etrailers.com installation video and the written installation instructions that came with the hitch from Draw-Tite. etrailer.com video made the installing fairly easy. It really helps when you can watch how it is done. However I did not like slicing the heat shield as detailed in the video's instructions and followed Draw-Tite's instructions for the heat shield modification. etrailer.com's heat shield modification would have been much faster but I wanted more metal to help keep the heatshield from vibrating. Over all it took about two hours to do the installation. Only problem encountered was forgetting to put the rubber drain plugs back in the car's frame. It is really difficult to install the rubber plug back in once the muffler/hitch is in place. The hitch works perfectly and best of all I don't have to install a strap to steady the bike rack. Have just done a 1000 mile trip with no problems. 909377

I purchased a trailer hitch from etrailer after checking prices with my car dealership. They wanted $300 for the hitch and another $300 to install it. I was able to get a hitch from etrailer for 1/3 the cost and got a quote to install it for 1/3 of what the dealership wanted to install it. But because of the excellent knowledge and help from customer service and the videos on their site, my son was able to install it. The experience with etrailer was win win for me. Great price and great product. I am very pleased with the hitch because it is heavy duty, has a a hardened black paint which looks like it will prevent it from rusting. Save yourself some time and go to etrailer first. You will not be disappointed! 904628

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2018 Subaru Forester
    For your 2018 Subaru Forester the option I recommend is the Draw-Tite # 75876, which is a confirmed fit for your vehicle. It is a Class III hitch with a maximum tongue weight of 525 lbs and a max towing capacity of 3,500 lbs. This hitch bolts on to your Forester so you can avoid drilling into the frame as well. If you are going to tow you'll need to add a 4-flat with wiring harness # 118467, which plugs into the wiring on your Forester. I also recommend checking out Ball Mount Kit #...

    The differences that you noted between the Draw-Tite trailer hitches # 75876 and # 76182 for your 2018 Subaru Forester are spot on. Both are custom hitches so no drilling is required (although you may need to enlarge some access holes) and they both are Class III trailer hitches with a 2" receiver. The cost of the # 75876 is lower because the hitch is less intricate which results in the easier installation as well. The cost of the # 76182 is higher because it is specially designed to...

  • Easiest Hitch Installation for 2017 Subaru Forester for Towing 4 x 8 Rented Utility Trailer
    Of the hitches available for your 2017 Subaru Forester, the easiest installation will be with the 2-inch etrailer hitch # E98839 and the Draw-Tite # 75876 that you referenced.

If you'd rather go with a 2 inch Class III receiver, I'd recommend...

  • Comparing Draw-Tite and Curt Class III Hitch for a 2017 Subaru Forester
    The Draw-Tite # 75876 and the Curt # C13144 are very similar hitches. Both are Class III 2 inch hitches with 3500 lbs. GTW and 525 lbs. TW; making them both excellent options for your Forester. I recommend the Draw-Tite # 75876 because it has the J Pin Stabilization System which uses a J pin # 63201 to help secure and prevent rattle with the Ball Mount or any other accessories you want to use with your hitch.

    Your impression was absolutely correct, the Draw-Tite # 75876 will be the best hitch for your 2017 Subaru Forester to use a bike rack.
