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.

Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Installation - 2018 Honda Odyssey

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Honda Odyssey we're gonna be taking a look at, and showing you how to install, the Draw-Tite Class III Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number: 76171. This is what our hitch looks like when it's installed. As you can see, the cross tube is visible; however, it does have a round tube design to fit with the contour of the vehicle. It's gonna be a Class III. It's gonna be 2" x 2". This forward hole here is gonna be your hitch pin hole.

It's gonna be 5/8" in diameter. This back hole here is for a J-pin stabilization device only. What that's used for is for taking the shake and rattle out of any of your hitch-mount accessories. This is gonna have a reinforced collar to give you a little extra stability on your receiver tube. It's also gonna have a plate-style safety chain hookup.

As you can see, the safety chain loops, or rings, are very large in size and give you plenty of room for different size safety chain hooks. Another thing about this hitch, it's also gonna have a welded or pre-welded plate for any of your wiring accessories that you may want to put on.You're gonna have a 675 pound max tongue weight, which is the downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube. You're gonna have a 4,500 pound max trailer weight, which is the trailer plus the load included. Now, you can use weight distribution with this hitch. Tongue weight is gonna stay the same, however, your trailer weight is gonna go up to 5,000 pounds.

I do recommend checking your owner's manual to make sure your vehicle can withstand that amount of weight. You're gonna want to pick the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch. Now, the installation on this hitch is very simple. It's gonna use existing weld nuts in the frame, and it's gonna come with all the necessary hardware. However, I do recommend getting an extra set of hands to help lift the hitch into place.Now we will give you a few measurements to help you when deciding on any hitch-mount accessories you may need, such as a ball mount, bike rack, or cargo carrier.

From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost part of the bumper will be about 4". From the ground to the top innermost part of the receiver tube will be about 14-1/2". Now let's show you how to get this installed.First thing we need to do to begin our installation is we need to lower our exhaust. First we need a safety strap. And you can hang it anywhere that's solid. What I like to do is hang it from the springs because they're easily accessible. Next thing we're gonna do is we're gonna take some lubrication and we're gonna spray two rubber hangers. You're gonna have one here, and you're gonna have one at the center of the vehicle. Next, we're gonna take a crowbar and we're gonna start from the one toward the back of the vehicle, and we're gonna pry it off of the metal hanger, and lower it just a little bit. Next, we're gonna have two plastic push pins for our exhaust deflector. We need to remove that. Take a flathead screwdriver, push right up the center, pry the center out, then we'll get the whole thing.Next, here on our driver's side, we need to remove this panel. We're gonna have four plastic push pins that we're gonna need to remove. Again, flathead screwdriver. You pull down the center, you get the base too. We're gonna have a Philips screw right on the inside of the fender well. Next we're gonna have a nut right up here on the inside. You're gonna use a 10mm socket. Then we'll just pull this out and set it aside for now. Next thing we need to do, even though this is a new vehicle, I still recommend cleaning out your weld nuts because they are open to the elements. We want to make sure that there's nothing inside of them, so when we thread our bolts in they don't cross thread and cause an issue. We'll spray a little bit of lubricant in each one. Then we'll just take a tube brush and run it up inside. Make sure nothing's gonna get stuck up in there. Then we're gonna do that same thing on the other side.Now, with an extra set of hands we'll put our hitch into place. Over here on our passenger side we're gonna go over top of the exhaust. We're gonna take a hex bolt, conical tooth washer teeth facing toward the hitch and we're gonna put one in on each side of the vehicle to hold our hitch in place so we can get in our remaining hardware. Then we'll have three bolts, same combination, on each side of our vehicle. Next we'll take our 3/4" socket, tighten all of our hardware. Next we'll torque all of our hardware to the specifications in the instructions. Then we're gonna repeat that process for all remaining hardware. Next we'll put our exhaust deflector back in. Take our push pin, push it up through the hole, and push the center in. Next, put our exhaust back in place. Spray a little bit more lubricant on it. It should just slide right into place. Once you have your exhaust back in place, you can remove your safety strap.Next we'll put our panel back in place. Now, it's gonna require us to trim a little bit off this edge. I don't think we're gonna have to cut off as much as the directions say, so we're gonna test fit it. We'll set it into place and see how far our holes are off. I'm gonna start just by cutting this edge off and see where we're at. I'd rather cut off a little bit, or not enough, than cut off too much and there be a big hole right there. I like to keep it as close to the hitch as possible. Now, I'm just gonna use a Dremel tool with a cutting blade. You can also use a utility knife if you have one, or a rotary tool. Once you have that trimmed, you just take a utility knife and just scrape the edge; you can get off any of those plastic burrs that are left on there. Once you're satisfied with your cut, we'll take our push pins, put them back into place. And last, we'll install our bolt with our 10mm socket.And that'll do it for a look at, and installation, on the Draw-Tite Class III Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number: 76171, on our 2018 Honda Odyssey.

The Draw Tite hitch came within 2 days of ordering and was installed in about 1.5 hours. The hitch itself is heavy duty and appears well constructed. I ended up moving the exhaust like the video recommends and didn't have WD-40, so it took a lot more effort. I also used ramps to give myself more room to maneuver. The area that was the toughest (surprisingly) was the screw the needed to be removed from the wheel well. I have big hands and it was a little tough to get in there. I have the dremel tool and that made cutting the trim very easy. Overall a pretty easy project. 625570

Easy install, bolt holes line up. Instructions are good except on reinstalling rear splash panel. How do I hold panel in place to put plastic rivets back on? 601355


Comments

I have attached an installation video. At the 7 minute time stamp our installer replaces the splash panel. It is held in place by fascia trim.

The hitch I received from your company only take me 20 minutes to install it was very easy but I did have a lift ! 492325

I plan to use the hitch mostly for carrying a bike rack and it seems to meet my needs perfectly. It's not offensive to look at and it has enough robustness that if I want to actually tow something I'll be able to. I really appreciated that etrailer has an online instruction video for installing each of the hitches they sell for my vehicle. I could evaluate each hitch not just on its carrying capacity, but also how hard it is to install. And, I have to agree with the rating system etrailer uses for the complexity of the installation. Best of all, I spent about a quarter of what the dealer was going to charge for a hitch. 563480

I took my time and installed it in about an hour. I didn't lift the vehicle or even remove the exhaust hanger. I was able to do the entire install solo. The rack is very heavy so I used a floor jack to lift the one side while I bolted up the other side. Overall, a high quality hitch. 593507

Very fast shipping and plenty of instructions on how to install the tow hitch. While there were minor issues, all went well and looks very good. Now just need to install the wiring, which I also purchased and the video makes that look simple as well. Most important, the quality looks great and the price couldn't be beat. 495805

Installed on 2019 Honda Odyssey. Exactly the same as 2018 Odyssey install. Utilized installation video and followed exact process with no problems. One person install without a lift so used a motorcycle jack to stabilize center and man-handled the bolting. Recommend two-person installation. Wiring harness installed per the video. No problems. Exact same setup as 2018 Odyssey. Tie wrapped module instead of sticky tape. Looks good, sturdy construction. Videos are priceless. Honda dealer wanted $1300 for similar product. I'm complete for just under $200 from etrailer.com. Plan on towing kayak trailer and maybe our 5x10 utility for short trips. Also bike rack will be attached to receiver. 525709

Overall great experience! The hitch arrived quickly once I asked that a back order item be removed from the purchase. It would have been nice to know that the balance of the order was being held awaiting the arrival of the backorder item. That being said, once I found out it was being held and asked that the back order item be removed, etrailer acted quickly in getting that item taken off the order and getting the balance of the order to me. After watching the videos from etrailer on installation i was able to get the hitch installed without a problem. It took me a little longer than estimated as i was installing it by myself and without a lift but still only a little over a hour. I have ordered from a etrailer in the past and in a few years when I replace this vehicle I am sure I will again. 528393

This was an extremely easy install. You will however want a helper to lift one of the sides and start the bolts. We did not lower the exhaust pipe from it's hangar as instructed but the receiver still slid easily into place. The exhaust can then support one end. It was a little tighter access to start the bolts this way but not difficult. The finished install looks great as the hitch mounts tight to the bumper cover. 504969

The trailer hitch receiver was shipped quickly and received within a few days. Installation was easy, but you definitely will need two people. I installed it on my 2018 honda odyssey and also bought a 40 dollar ramp which made it easier to get under the van. The videos are extremely helpful. This was the primary reason why I bought it from etrailer. I will definitely buy from them again. The only negative experience was the shipping box was ripped and the trailer reciever was sticking out which resulted in minor paint chipping. I would recommend that etrailer used a bigger box with styrofoam or padding to protect the ends. For this reason alone, I am docking a star for the overall experience. 568579

Hello Reader, this trailer hitch is wonderful!!! Really easy to install. I personally LOVE all the videos that etrailer does on there products. Because of there videos I don't have to send a lot of money on someone else to install it for me. keep up the Great work ETRAILER 567247

Just installed the hitch on my 2019 Honda Odyssey and it looks great! Out of the box the quality and solid construction of the hitch caught my eye. The installation was very easy. It took me an hour because I was doing it by myself. I will be using it to pull a small trailer and a lightweight camper. I’m giving it a 5 star out the door for price, ease of install, quality build, and customer service. 589546

The trailer hitch fit my 2018 Honda Odyssey perfectly. Installing it in my home garage by myself was a bit of a challenge (an extra pair of hands would have been helpful), but all of the parts were packaged and complete. The video installation instructions were also very clear and there were no surprises. 539406

This is the second hitch I purchased from etrailer. I also purchased several accessories. The products and service from etrailer has been excellent. I am happy with them, and I am not usually happy about anything !!! 497696



- 76171

I am not a professional and It took me 1 hour to install and it fits perfectly. You need to have some tools like a wrench with extension, and a crowbar/pry tool to push the exhaust pipe (last section) out with some WD-40. Once the exhaust pipe is out of the rubber boot, you need a second person to pull the exhaust pipe to the side/down and it will make your life much easier. There is a small piece of plastic connected to the bumper on the same side as the exhaust pipe and it's optional to be taken out. I cut 11" of the plastic instead of 10" per instruction and it fits well. Overall, it's a 2 people job. The hitch is high quality and it's highly recommended. 550572

Product is very good. Bolt holes were a little tough to align, but they work fine without any modification. I was a little disappointed that I didn't hear anything from the company when my order was delayed as they had run out of stock for our item. A phone call or email message stating this would have been nice. I did call customer service several days after having not received the product as expected, and was made aware of the delay. 517209



- 76171
by:

See picture of installed hitch below. one thing I might comment on is that the holes were not exact. I had to pry against the hitch in order to get the hitch to spread the last few millimeters to get the bolts started on the second side. 473447

We purchased a hitch for our Honda Odyssey and I have never been so please with a company as I have with etrailer.com. The quality of the hitch was great and the price was fantastic. The best was their directions for installation. My husband was able to install it within 1.5 hours. It saved us quite a bit of money when we didn’t have to have an outside company install it. The hitch works perfectly for our bike rack. Great company, great quality. 658564

Wow is all I can say! Several friends recommended etrailer.com and I will happily do the same. I ordered the products, I recived a confirmation email (from a human) that it was packed up and shipped to me. It arrived error free and packaged well. I logged in and instruction videos that were just what I ordered (no searching for what I needed) were spot on and easy to follow. I am beyond impressed from start to finish and the best part is its on and we are towing! A big thank you to the etrailer.com people that put this together for me! 655088

I installed this hitch on a 2019 Honda Odyssey in about 1.5 hrs. Etrailer videos were invaluable both for the installation and to get confidence to do the work myself. Most of the installation was very straightforward. I drove the car on ramps to get better access. The most difficult part was reinstalling the forward muffler hanger. It was facing away from the bracket and took major stretching with a large screw driver through the hole in the rubber hanger and massive leverage to get it back on. Finally did and it is great. Next the wiring - also good video 562109

The installation was a breeze, assisted only by two paint cans I was able to install this on my 2019 Odyssey in under 30 minutes. The instructions for the wiring harness was a bit off but I called and their sales rep was extremely helpful. On their instruction video on youtube I submitted comments on what I did to install the wiring harness (TEKONSHA 118781). Very easy project to complete. 553374



- 76171
by:

I couldn't be more pleased with this product. The installation was extremely easy. The toughest part is getting the muffler disconnected to allow room for tightening bolts but that took 3 minutes with the help of a flat head screwdriver. Everything fit perfectly and the design is such that all original pieces of the vehicle still fit where they were prior to install. 30 minutes or so to install is all you need, including un-boxing. If you have an extra pair of hands to help position it's better, you'll just need them for a couple of minutes. Great product and service! 552935

We had this installed by a professional on our 2018 Honda Odyssey. This product was recommended because our initial choice wouldn’t ship in time. We hitched our 5-bike rack into it with four bikes and drove about 320 mikes round trip with no problems. Customer service was excellent. 542104

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch
Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Trailer Hitch for a 2019 Honda Odyssey with the Best Ground Clearance
  • We carry four 2 inch trailer hitches that fit the 2019 Honda Odyssey: Draw-Tites # 76170 and # 76171, a Curt # C13370, and one from us # E98855. All of them are basically the same design except for the Draw-Tite # 76170. When we installed it on a 2018 Odyssey it was an inch lower than the other three, which were all the same. Of the others that have more clearance I recommend the etrailer.com hitch, # E98855. Since they're all very similar and this one is less expensive I see that...

  • Comparing Draw-Tite and Curt Class III Trailer Hitches For 2018 Honda Odyssey
  • Both the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76171 and the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13370 referenced in your question are Class III hitches that are confirmed to fit your 2018 Honda Odyssey. These will both install at the same location on your vehicle's frame and the hitch visibility for both models will be about the same. The primary difference between the two is their weight capacity. The Draw-Tite # 76171 features a higher 4,500 pound towing capacity and 675 pound tongue weight...

  • Why Does Draw Tite Make Two Trailer Hitches for 2018 Honda Odyssey
  • The hitch to go with for your 2018 Honda Odyssey is the part # 76171 in my opinion. Because it has a lower price, higher towing capacities, and is compatible with weight distribution (a feature you most likely wouldn't need, but still...). Only "downside" is that it has a visible crosstube. The benefit to the part # 76170 is that it has a hidden cross tube so it's advantage is that it's much less visible. Either hitch will work great but it depends on what you value most for your hitch.

  • What is the Difference Between the Draw-Tite Hitch # 76170 and # 76171 for the 2018 Honda Odyssey
  • The biggest difference between the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitches, # 76170 and # 76171, is the # 76170 hitch sits up closer to the bumper which will give you a little more clearance between the bottom of the hitch and the ground. The Draw-Tite # 76170 is less visible with only the receiver opening sticking out from under the rear of the van. The Draw-Tite Hitch, # 76171, actually sits lower and the cross tube can be seen under the bumper of the Odyssey. This hitch will give you less ground...

  • Recommendation for Trailer Hitch Receiver from Comparison for 2019 Honda Odyssey
  • The 2 inch hitch options for your 2019 Honda Odyssey are similar and yet different. The Draw-Tite # 76171, etrailer.com # e98855, and Curt # C13370 all have an exposed crosstube but are far easier to install. The EcoHitch # 306-X7372 and the Draw-Tite # 76170 both have the hidden crosstube for better ground clearance but they will require more time and energy to install. Based on the capacities and design of the hitch, I recommend the Draw-Tite # 76170. This will work well for...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2018 Honda Odyssey with Easiest Installation
  • For your 2018 Honda Odyssey, I definitely recommend going with the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Round Tube Hitch # 76171. This particular trailer hitch has an estimated installation time for somebody with some experience of around 40 minutes. We rate the installation difficulty at a 4 out of 10, meaning it is a fairly simple process if you are comfortable with car maintenance. Some minor trimming of the underbody panel will be required and you will need to temporarily lower the exhaust...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2018 Honda Odyssey for Cargo Carrier and Bike Rack
  • Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" Item # 76170 will have slightly better ground clearance compared to # 76171 for your 2018 Honda Odyssey. The real benefit of # 76170 is that the receiver will be the only part of the hitch that is visible. I have included a couple of pictures so you can see the hitches installed side by side. To get more height between the ground and your cargo carrier or bike rack using the Curt multipurpose ball mount # D210 is...

  • Will a Trailer Hitch Receiver on a 2018 Honda Odyssey EX-L Interfere with the Hands Free Liftgate
  • All of the trailer hitch receivers to fit a 2018 Honda Odyssey may interfere with the handsfree liftgate. Usually, it only requires the user to place their foot to the side of the receiver opening for the sensors to work. I've attached a video of the Draw-Tite # 76170 that we installed and it's recommended to purchase parts from Honda so the sensors can be moved. When we installed the other Draw-Tite hitch, part # 76171, and the Curt, part # C13370, the sensors were not tested. My...

  • Actual Ground Clearance on Draw-Tite Trailer Hitches 76170 & 76171 On The 2018 Honda Odyssey
  • You are correct that the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76171 has measurements from the ground to the top innermost part of the receiver tube of 14-1/2". There is another measurement that you may want to consider. I measured from the lowest point of the hitch # 76171 (the bottom of the receiver tube) and it is 12-1/4". The same measurement on the # 76170 hitch is 11-1/4". I took that measurement to give the actual ground clearance from when we installed it, just incase you...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2018 Honda Odyssey
  • The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76171 and the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13370 referenced in your question are very similar Class III hitches and both are confirmed to fit your 2018 Honda Odyssey. Both of these hitches will mount at the same location on the vehicle frame so will look very similar in terms of appearance when installed. They will rest directly beneath the rear bumper and provide a sleek, unassuming design. Even with the angled center point on the Draw-Tite's...

  • For your 2018 Honda Odyssey, the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 76170 is a confirmed fit.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2018 Honda Odyssey
  • There are hitches available for a 2018 Honda Odyssey, and I recommend going with the Draw-Tite # 76171. This is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver that has a tongue weight capacity of 675 lbs and a gross towing weight capacity of 4,500 lbs. You will still be able to use your Odyssey's tailgate foot sensor; just activate it on either side of the receiver tube. If you plan on towing, you can use ball mount kit # 989900 and for wiring you would need T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118753....

  • Hitch with Best Ground Clearance on a 2019 Honda Odyssey
  • I went out to the warehouse and took some measurements of the three hitches you mentioned for your 2019 Honda Odyssey and from what I find the # 76170 hitch actually has about a 1/4 inch more ground clearance than the # 76171 and about a 1/4 less clearance than # C13370. The # 76170 is actually a much different design than the other two since the receiver tube is under the crosstube. This makes less of the hitch visible under the van's bumper which is the style I like to recommend....

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for 2018 Honda Odyssey
  • I wish that was something we had, but since hitch installs for vehicles like your 2018 Honda Odyssey are relatively very simple for mechanics we have had the best luck telling people to find a local garage with a good reputation and let them handle the install. For your vehicle the Draw Tite part # 76171 would be a great solution that we would recommend highly. It has the best capacities, price and installs very simply. I attached an install video as well.

  • You are definitely on the right track!
