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.

Trailer hitch is well built, but automatic tailgate sensor is blocked and no longer works after installation. If you want to open tailgate with your foot, do not get this one. 566687


Comments
Honda is aware of the fact that the power liftgate sensor becomes blocked once a trailer hitch is installed. Honda offers a Power Liftgate Sensor Relocation Bracket as part # 08U59-TLA-100A. Your Honda dealer should be able to provide this part for you.

The fit is not anywhere near perfect. With the subframe nuts and washers loosely attached to the subframe, I had to jack up on the receiver to get the receiver high enough so that the center bolt would go through the towing loop. Then, after tightening everything down, the receiver appears to angle to the left when compared to the bumper. It will probably get the job done, but its not pretty and the 20 minute install time is ridiculous--2 hours is more like it, and that was with help. Point of reference: I have installed 4 similar type hitches like this before so I am not a newby. 464054

Hitch was a perfect fit on a 2017 Honda CRV Touring. The foot activated rear hatch opener still works as claimed. The hardest part was getting those rubber doughnuts for the exhaust off & on. Also suggest getting something to hold the hitch in place against the frame of the vehicle once you get it into position. I used a one gallon pail w/ some wood blocks in the center of the hitch, a floor jack on one side and a 2x4 (that happened to be the perfect length) on the other side. Then it's just a matter of threading the washers & nuts on and torqueing them down. The wire fish for the mounting bolts is brilliant. Took me a little over an hour, but could do it faster the next time. 349420

I have used this product in the past. I put the first one on my 03 Sienna van. Easy to attach so I purchased and attached one to my 05 CRV. Worked great, so my 14 CRV was next and now my 18 CRV. I'm amazed at the easy attachment of the wire harness I bought with each hitch. If there isn't a factory hitch already on my car, I will be purchasing another hitch for any vehicle I buy. 562314

Driving coast to coast, the hitch worked great, held the 3x4 basket so I could use the interior of the car for more people room.

The only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 stars is that after mounting the hitch to the frame, I found out that the hole for the 1/2 inch bolt that goes through the factory tow hook had a metal burr large enough to prevent the bolt from going through the hole. It would have been a lot easier to file it down prior to installing the hitch. This added about 20 minutes to the installation (luckily I did have a small enough file to be able to work on it underneath the vehicle) Did the whole project with the vehicle jacked up and laying on my back on the garage floor. The time consuming issue was working with the rubber mounts for the exhaust system (both taking them off and putting them back on, without damaging anything in the process) I am sure that it would have been much easier if I had access to a lift but I expected issues ahead of time since I did not have a lot of headroom to work with. Total job with setup, installation of the hitch and also the wiring took about 3 hours. Much of that was going back and forth finding ways to remove/reinstall the exhaust mounts 470808


Comments
After one year of use, I am still very satisfied with the hitch. I mainly use it for a platform type bike rack but have also pulled my 4x8 trailer a few times without any issues. A great product!

I don’t write too many reviews unless product and service is exceptional or poor. My dealing with etrailer was exceptional. From help on the phone to make sure I received correct wiring harness to shipping to ease of instillation. Ian assured me of the correct harness, shipping was quicker than quoted. After watching instillation video on etrailer I was ready to go. I’m installing on 2018 Honda CRV and was never sure that nothing had changed from 2017 CRV. I was hoping maybe Honda would move wiring connection to a easier more logical location. The hitch took 50 minutes to install. Went exactly as etrailer video showed. The only problem I had was lining up hitch plate with tow loop. I suggest loosening up mounting bolt as far as possible and jacking directly under back end of receiver opening. I could not do this by hand but only took 3 pumps on my floor jack and everything lined up. I installed by myself and used a jack stand to balance one side of hitch while I bolted the other side. All hardware tightened and torqued nicely. I did loosen the mid muffler hanger for a bit more room. The Honda wiring harness was exactly where etrailer video showed it to be. Wiring was a struggle due to panels braced in place and I was unable to remove. I had very little room to work and needed wife to pull on panel while I put wiring in place. Watch the instillation videos on etrailer, it is perfect, explains everything you need to know and how to do it. Hitch install was 50 minutes by myself. Wiring install was 90 minutes and I needed extra hands. Price was great and I will go to etrailer for my future needs. 503448

My brother and I installed this ourselves. We did have access to a lift. I think this might be very difficult laying on your back in a driveway. You really do need two people when you get to the point of holding it up and getting it into place. Otherwise, getting the muffler hangers loose was the most difficult part of the process. WD40 to the rescue. The whole process took us about an hour. 365127

Box arrived undamaged, prompt shipping, item was well packaged to prevent damage. After watching the video, it took 2 of us about 45 minutes to install. We accidentally tightened the 4 bolts snug and couldn't get the tow hook bolt to fit without loosening them first. Besides that, the whole thing went smoothly and again, the instructional video was great. I used a Thule 4 bike carrier but could only fit 3 bikes (not etrailers fault). Drove 150 miles each way and had no issues, even after hitting some bumps it held up great. Thank you for making a great product, I will be sure to use your company again in the near future. 428869

Install took about 90min and was straightforward. Fit was excellent. Only issue is that in order to get clearance I had to cut down the bigger rectangular metal bracket that serves as a washer on the centerline connector beneath the hitch by 1/8” with a hacksaw, which was no fun. DEFINITELY recommend having car on a lift for this install. I didn’t, and it was harder that it needed to be! 922547

  • Comparing Trailer Hitches For 2019 Honda CR-V
    So there are a few important differences between the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 76128, Curt Trailer Hitch # C13397 and etrailer.com Trailer Hitch # e98848 that fit your 2019 Honda CR-V, which I'll go over for you. The first difference is the look; as you can see by the accompanying photo, the Curt and etrailer hitch have a concealed crosstube while the Draw-Tite has an exposed crosstube.

    The best trailer hitch for your 2018 Honda CR-V Touring with the hands-free tailgate is the Curt, part # C13397. I prefer the Curt over the Draw-Tite hitch, part # 76128, because the Curt's crossbeam is completely hidden behind the vehicle's bumper. All you see when it's installed is the receiver opening and the safety chain loops. The installation is a little more in depth, but in the long run I think it's worth it.
