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.

Excellent hitch for wife's 2015 Rav 4. We like that the bar is hidden beneath the bumper cover which also gives extra ground clearance. Has a nice factory look when installed. A little extra work to clearance trim the bumper cover & factory splash guards after installation but well worth the extra effort. Etrailer is excellent, best prices, had hitch in less than 48hrs. & their installation videos & customer service made this a very straight forward installation. I will be doing business with Etrailer again!!!

Hitch still looks as new after a Chicago winter & is working flawlessly!

I love my Draw Tite Max Frame Trailer Hitch. I didn't even know that you could add a hitch to a vehicle until someone at work told me you could. I like to bike and I was tired of laying down my seats down in my Rav4 and lifting my bike in. He told me about adding a hitch to your car. I went online and in less than 1/2 hour I had ordered a hitch and a 2 bike rack. My son installed it without any trouble and I was ready to go. I was very happy. It was just what I needed and I thought the price was great.

Still love my hitch. It does what it is suppose to do and I have no problems with it. I am so glad that I added it to my Rav4.

The 76134 receiver is well made. All weld beads are continuous and consistent and the material is sized right for adequate strength and minimum weight. Mounting bolt hole pattern is right on. Paint is good and consistent with no dings or scratches. Installation was straight forward. It was necessary to procure a M12 X 1.25 tap to run through the mounting weld nuts in the frame in order to get the bolts to thread in; not a fault of the receiver but the effects of four years of over the road use of the 2015 RAV4. Also the small amount of extra money for this hidden crossbar version of a receiver was worth it when looking at the final installation. The 118578 T-One harness kit installation was also straight forward and it works as it should. Installation was made a little less difficult with the use of the ALL648544 trim pad remover that was purchased with this order.

It has been fine, no issues. Ive only used it once to pull a utility trailer with a small motorcycle on it for about 200 miles so it hasnt had a lot of use. I am still very pleased with it.

Worth the extra work! This hitch looks so much more clean then any other hitch. I bought a curt brand hitch for my rav at first and it showed so bad. This one all the hardware except the tongue is hidden in the bumper! The biggest pain was cutting the panels. Which is optional except for the base of the bumper. I used some door edge moulding I had left over the clean up the spots i had to cut on the bumper and it looks so much better that way. Also if you have a limited model you have to unscrew the keyless entry antenna and the instructions say you need a 12mm ITS WRONG you need an 11mm it took me forever to get that off struggling to find the right size and it's in a tight spot to get it off. It's worth the hard work for the clean look! I put the curt brand plug and curt wire mount on it and they both work great!


Comments
Still works absolutely fantastic! I towed my tear trailer with it this summer and it had no issues with it! I plan on buying the equipment to install trailer brakes into my tear that are made by etrailer here shortly as I am thoroughly impressed with the quality!

Shipping was fast, the hitch arrived three days earlier than promised. Installation was straightforward, the on-line videos were excellent help. The hitch fit very well, all the holes lined up and the bolts went in. These hitches are heavy and awkward. I used my engine hoist to carry most of the weight and still needed another set of hands to swing it up into position so I could start the bolts. I had to get it past the exhaust system, so having someone on the other side was a huge help. Once I had a bolt in each side it went easily from there. It looks great once installed and works just as expected.

Just bought the hitch not long ago so haven't fully tested it yet other then put a bike rack on it. This will be the main use.The hitch looks really good on the car. It also sits up really high, so really helpful when you back up from a steep driveway. Instillation look some time for me. The instillation video is rally helpful. Just make sure that you have a "Nylon or metal tube brush" for cleaning the dust in nuts that are already pre-drilled in the car. In my case I needed a metal tube brush because of the rust. You can purchase these for around $5 - $6 at a local hardware store. Great hitch though, that looks really good.

I want to confirm that this hitch fits on my 2007 RAV4. I took a chance on ordering this hitch because it had not been confirmed to fit this year and I preferred the hidden bar version. As it turns out I don't think it is probably any tougher to install on this model year than any of the newer confirmed years. That being said, I did remove the bumper cover as I wanted analyze every step to make sure it was going to work. It did take most of a day to install but half of that time was spent cleaning up the threads of the previously unused holes required for the hitch attachment. A word of advice here is that if you don't have access to a tap to clean up the threads, take your time before actually installing the hitch to make sure that the bolts will thread all of the way. It took a lot WD-40 and multiple (maybe 10 to 15) attempts to get further and further. You only want to go so far and then back off (or out) and then spray and go again. This process would have been required for my situation no matter which hitch I was installing. After that, the installation went fairly smooth. To me it was worth the effort as it looks as good as a factory installation. Oh yeah, I did this review because I have the V6 which pulls my 18ft boat effortlessly and thought there would be others wanting to use this hitch.

After a year all is good. Use it to pull my 18 ft boat approx. 2500 lbs.

This is my second etrailer trailer hitch receiver installation. My first was with a 2000 Honda Odyssey and it serves us well for many years. This latest is for my 2018 Toyota RAV4. The install went well, although the videos provides (2015 and 2017 RAV4 models) did not either have the one problem case I had to deal with which was the keyless entry antenna mounted in the space the hitch needed to go behind the bumper. I was able to remove this without removing the bumper facia but it was very challenging to do, and it would have been nice to have better instruction or a video showing how to address that. The kit came with two zip ties which were provided to zip-tie the keyless entry antenna to the bumper since there was no longer a place to mount it at before, and this seems to be working well.

Love it -- especially how it's mostly hidden. I borrowed a torque wrench and installed it myself without too much trouble. Definitely get a friend to help. I had no friends that day but was able to do it alone with the help of some cinder blocks and books used to support the weight of the hitch while getting it in place. It's heavy and definitely drops the suspension a bit on my 2018 Rav4 Hybrid. I bought some air bags for the shocks to fix that; haven't installed those yet.

Excellent customer service at eTrailer.com!!! I ordered the hitch, then decided to add a Yakima bike rack to my already completed order. Brenden at eTrailer quickly edited my order, and then shipped it that evening! Very quick turnaround and delivery of my order. The Draw-Tite Custom Class III hitch fits my 2017 Toyota Rav4 perfectly! The description, installation video, and photos on eTrailer are very accurate to the look and fit of this model. The Yakima rack is solid, and was easy to assemble in about 15 minutes with all the required tools included in the box. I love that the rack tilts down to allow access to the rear hatch, and has built in security locks for both bikes, and the hitch itself.

The whole process was very smooth, George from etrailer emailed me shortly after I placed the order to inform me that a pin I ordered as well was going to delay the shipment but offered another alternative that would speed up delivery. It was easy to get a hold of staff. I’m sure returns on products won’t be easy due to the size and weight of many of the products. But etrailer is very helpful with product details and videos of installation that I basically became a pro after watching and reading a few times. Will definitely use them again for any vehicle accessories!!

Hitch fits our 2013 RAV4 nicely. Only the box receiver shows below the bumper. Easy install. Have only used it for a bike rack so far. Outstanding service from etrailer.com though. UPS lost the first hitch and I was up against a time crunch before leaving on a trip. Emily at etrailer rushed another hitch to me that arrived in time for me to install before our trip.

Excellent fit on our 2017 Toyota Rav4 AWD, all bolts lined up to the frame, but it required a lot of time trimming the plastic under body panels. I made a tool to reinstall the trim panel clips, this helped to avoid removing the bumper. Package arrived with the top torn open, UPS driver handed the box to me and I feared the worst, but all of the hardware was there. Thanks to (Gorge J.) and the crew at "etrailer.com" for protecting the contents! The 76134 hidden hitch looks nice on our new Rav4, we are ready to hit the road! TN Hunter.

Super fast shipping. Instructions sent with the Drawtite hitch were not great. The video a of installation on the Etrailer site was terrific. I watched it several times. Amzing that they had a video for my model and year Rav4 and the exact hitch I ordered. Install was easy even without jacking or lifting the car at all.

2016 Toyota RAV4

I wanted a Class III trailer hitch for our bike rack for our 2016 RAV4 and it was extremely easy to search for the available hitches and see the reviews. What I really like about etrailer are the videos that review the different types of hitches and options for particular makes/models of cars and there are pictures to view. I went with the Draw-Tite because we have the same brand on our other car and the one I bought tucks under the rear bumper so it has a very clean look and you only see the hitch. I had our mechanic install it so I can't comment on that, but the mechanic said it was pretty easy to install and he did not have to lower or remove the rear bumper (there are a lot of sensors on cars attached to bumpers these days...) so he charged me an hour of labor. The etrailer price and cost of installation was much cheaper than buying from a dealer. Very happy with etrailer and the purchasing process.

2015 Ram 3500

I have a 2015 Rav 4 and I ordered the wiring harness with the hitch, ball and receiver and it arrived the next day undamaged. The install instructions were pretty straight forward and was not that difficult to install. I would suggest that you have a helper nearby when raising and lowering the bracket. I did not jack up the vehicle and had more than enough room to install the whole kit. On the right rear of the vehicle had an extra hanger bracket on the top of the muffler that was not attached to anything that needed to be removed as it would interfere with the receiver bracket that bolts to the frame. On the left rear there was a tie down bracket that needed to removed and thrown away to allow room for the receiver bracket that bolts to the frame. The captured nuts that are in the frame of the vehicle were covered with rust and undercoating which made the bolt installation difficult for some and impossible for one. The thread size is 12mm x 1.25mm. This is not a standard size in most metric kits. I was able to get a loaner thread chaser kit from O’Reilly auto parts to clean up the threads. Make sure to do this or you will not be able to achieve the proper torque when tightening the bolts. Torqueing the bolts to the proper set point is an important step. Do not skip this step. I temporally fitted the receiver and marked the bumper cover which needed to be notched. I did this to minimize the cutting of the bumper cover. The instructions give you a general dimensions that are a little larger than they need to be. I also need to clearance the plastic panel that goes under the left rear of the vehicle. You will need to just cut and fit, cut and fit, repeat until it fits properly. I purchased this product even though the load rating was less than others because it tucks under the bumper cover and does not stick down like most all the other receiver I looked at. At 3500 pounds I believe that is more that the vehicle load rating so it should be good enough for me. I am very happy with the speed of delivery and with the quality of the product.


Comments
One year later and the trailer hitch is still in great shape with no rust at all. I was recently stopped at a light when I was rear ended by an inattentive driver. I am convinced that the hitch and bumper took the brunt of the hit which pushed my vehicle forward a couple feet. The hitch came out unscathed and reduced the damage to the rear of my vehicle. I would recommend this hitch to anyone.

Receiver fit 2018 Rav4 fine. Needed to cut plastic bumper underneath slightly per instructions. Cut less than instructed. Instructions did not discuss Rav4 lift gate foot sensor which must be moved or will be crushed once receiver is bolted in. This required me to install and remove receiver 3 times until I found cause of interference. Finding cause of interference was hard due to tight area receiver fits into. Must have 2 helpers or 2 floor jacks to install. I was able to install alone with 2 floor jacks. Once foot sensor interference resolved and jacked into place receiver fit fine and looks great. Receiver gets 5 stars. I rate installation as difficult due to foot sensor interference.


Comments
Solid hitch mounted in 2018 RAV4 with foot detect tail gate. Had difficulty fitting around exhaust as had to it a bit by removing donut hangers to fit hitch around, had to relocate trail gate foot detector after seeing it was being crushed as I tighten bolts it was dead center in the way, and had to cut out lower trim a little more. This all required multiple removals. Did it alone using 2 floor jacks and wood blocking. It is very tight in there and once hitch was in it was in it fit perfectly. Rear trim cutout so low that you cant see cutout. Excellent quality hitch. Any handy person can do this.

I just finished installing 76134 Hitch on a 2018 Toyota RAV4 LE Hybrid. I really appreciated the video (red 2017 Toyota RAV4 LE) and other comments. That guy in the video is impressive. I had three differences from the video 1st) The tie down bracket required my torque wrench to loosen. It was on there and my drill would not cut it. 2nd) The keyless entry antenna was in the way. It is right under the bumper on the passenger side middle. The instructions talk about it but the video doesn't. Maybe some cars don't have it. Either way I removed it with a 10mm wrench. I also removed the bracket that attaches to it and when I was done reattached it with tie downs provided and according to the instructions. I did not have to remove the bumper fascia See photos. 3rd) The largest trim panel on the driver side, I had to trim a touch more than in the video to get it to fit. Overall I'm thrilled with this product and the look.

I really like the Draw Tite class III 2" custom fit hitch for our 2018 Toyota RAV4 XLE. It looks like it was factory installed. You only see the reciever, not the cross beams. I installed the hitch by myself using jack stands to prop it up while I bolted it on. I had to cut the rear fascia on bottom of vehicle 1 1/2” deep by about 3" wide. Instructions said 1" x 2", but it would have been too small. I did have to remove the rear keyless entry antenna under the rear fascia per instructions with hitch. It was just 2 screws and came with 2 zip ties to re-attach to hitch cross beams. (The 2017 installation video on etrailer did not mention this. But I have a 2018.) I am only using the hitch for a bike rack, no towing. (Glad I went with this hitch as opposed to Curt class II 1 1/4" which requires you to strap bikes and bike rack to the rear hatch of vehicle.) The box looked like it was hit by a train all torn and ripped and open. The UPS guy helped me remove the hitch to make sure it was okay. Only a few minor scuffs on the cross beam of hitch which can't be seen. Very happy with the hitch. You won't be sorry if you purchase this hitch!

Install was easy. It's helpful to have two people, but generally it was a simple job with no special tools needed. I used an exacto knife to cut out the bumper a bit as shown in the directions. One year on, the hitch works as it should, in that it's always there and I never think about it.

Installed on a 2018 Toyota Rav4. Instructions were a little tough to understand but if you have some basic mechanical knowledge you can figure it out. There are a couple of steps on the instructions that were not necessary to complete this install. They wanted you to remove a piece of fascia that was not required. I only had to trim one piece of fascia and that was pretty simple, I just used a dremel. I installed this on my own and it was a little difficult trying to lift the hitch in place and start the bolts but I was able to pull it off. It took me about an hour to install this and a some basic tools. I bought this receiver hitch so I can utilize my motorcycle receiver hitch hauler. I chose this hitch due to its hideaway crossbar. I didn't want to look at the back of my vehicle and see this receiver hitch bar hanging down and this product does a good job of hiding that.

  • Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver for Carrying Bike Rack on 2007 Toyota Rav4
    We do have hitches that are a fit for a 2007 Toyota Rav4, but the # 76134 you'd asked about is a fit for a later generation of the vehicle, and wouldn't be compatible with your 2007 model. For your 2007 model, I'd actually recommend the Curt Class III, part # C13149.

  • Why Can't Weight Distribution System Be Used with Draw-Tite # 76134 on Toyota RAV4
    A complete weight distribution system applies an awful lot of torque to the hitch and tow vehicle it's being used on so some hitches simply aren't rated to handle this kind of stress.

    The hitch for your 2018 Toyota Rav4 that has the best ground clearance is the Draw Tite part # 76134 as it sits the highest and also because only the hitch opening hangs below the rear bumper which means turning into an elevation change like a steep driveway would not be affected at all since the bumper would still be the lowest part of the rear of the vehicle at the sides of it.

  • Most Concealed Trailer Hitch Receiver to Fit a 2017 Toyota RAV4
    The most concealed trailer hitch receiver that fits your 2017 Toyota RAV4 is the Draw-Tite # 76134.
