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.

hitch was received promptly and appears to be of very sound quality. Unfortunately, due to an injury, it will be some time before I am able to do the install, but will try to remember to update my review after doing so. 656884

The hitch itself appears to be of a high quality. I have not installed it yet. I plan to install this weekend. My only negative comment has to do with the shipping which in my opinion is not an etrailer issue. When the package arrived it was on my porch with the mounting flanges exposed and sitting on the concrete unprotected. It looks like someone threw this into the back of the truck. Or, it was bounced around considerably during shipping which in turn ripped the sides of the box. 575318

This hitch installed just as they show in the video. Very straight forward per the video as long as you have the right tools and some basic skills with these tools. The only thing that was not mentioned anywhere was the fact that you will REMOVE the bumper and NOT put it back on. The new hitch will act as the safety bumper. This was not mentioned anywhere else so I thought I would mention it here for others. I think this is ok for safety reasons, but I was a bit nervous about it at first. 634811

Had this hitch installed on my 2018 Audi Q5 last week. Already used it a few times to carry my bikes and it's perfect! Can't comment on the longevity , but this certainly seems like a high-quality hitch, and I am excited at all the flexibility it allows me. The attached photo doesn't show the hitch, but my bike rack is attached to it, demonstrating its ability. Thanks etrailer! 662228

This is the second Draw-Tight trailer hitch I have purchased from etrailer.com. Supper fast shipping and the communication from the etrailer team is excellent. The Draw-tight hutch was easy to install and looks great on our 2018 Q5. I didn’t have to cut any plastic parts to complete the installation because the bumper plastic will fit around the hitch. 470535

I am very happy with my purchase from etrailer.com especially since I did not have to cut out a notch in my bumper to fit the tow hitch. It just slipped into the open gap. The only other thing I would change about the instructions. The 10 mm socket needs to be an extended 10 mm socket. 472593

Shipped very promptly, received within 2 days. A bit disappointed for the box, as the hitch receiver had broken throhgh the cardboard but disn't show any big damage other than cosmetic. Installed was relatively simple if you watch the video first. Took me about 3 hours to install and return vehicle to driving conditions, but I did have my 2 little ones constantly interrupt me, so I am pretty sure that easily 1:30-2:00 tips is cery reasonable. I did not have to trim the bottom of the bumper as it fit without any issues. It looks stock which is someting I was looking for. 672937

Great product. Very easy to install by just following the video. The only problem I had was with the trim because the measurements is off center if you follow the instructions but it still works and it isn’t noticeable unless you bend. 2018 Audi Q5. Second time I’ve ordered from here and perfect every time. Quick shipping also. 643699

Installation went just as expected. This is a rather simple installation and looks like a factory hitch. You only need to cut the notch into the bumper cover if you have a long ball mount that will reach back into the receiver. The product is very very well built and solid. I am completely satisfied with the this product and the service provided by etrailer.com! 805704

Installation went exactly as the video described. Of course I had the benefit of my brother’s knowledge, tools and expertise, as I could not have done the installation myself. Very pleased with the final result. The hitch looks as if it was a factory installation. 798079

by:

works great. I followed the instructions for it and it went on without issue. The only thing is that the instruction to cut out part of the plastic from the body panel wasn't necessary. I cut mine before I realized it fit without the cut. No harm done, I cut it neatly and it's under the car behind the hitch anyway. 790454

Great fit on my 2018 Audi SQ5. Great quality hitch. Video instruction makes it easy. Be careful trimming the small piece of plastic under the rear bumper. The tabs are not equally spaced so if you measure between two centre tabs it isn’t actually in the centre of the bumper and the small cut out will be off centre. 673359

I got this trailer hitch a year ago and I have been quite happy with it. I have been using it primarily with my bike rack and it works great. My big compliment, however, is for how it can handle a large trailer. I have a 2018 Audi Q5 and I towed a trailer with it using this hitch across the country (3000 miles). I rented a 12 feet [rental] trailer with a total weight of about 5000 lbs and both the car and the hitch did an excellent job during the 7 days trips. 670907

Works perfectly. I was having other work done, so my favorite body shop installed it. They did not need to trim any of the bumper cover and the "kick to open" feature for the rear hatch still works. 653475

  • Comparing Curt and Draw-Tite Trailer Hitches for a 2020 Audi Q5
    The Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Receiver Hitch part # 76183 and Curt Class III Receiver Hitch part # C13331 are both excellent options for a 2020 Audi Q5. I recommend the Curt Class III Receiver Hitch because the receiver tube opening is tucked behind the rear bumper a bit more so it is not as noticeable from outside the vehicle. Furthermore, the Curt hitch requires less modifications to the rear plastic fascia and the powder coating is more durable so fewer chips and scratches will occur. I...

  • Removing Bumper Beam to Install Draw-Tite 76185/Curt C13331 Class III Trailer Hitch on 20018 Audi Q5
    As you mentioned, the installation instructions for the Curt # C13331 call for the bumper beam structure to be reinstalled after the hitch is in place, with the hitch sitting between it and the vehicle frame end panel. The Draw-Tite # 76183 calls for the beam to be removed and not reinstalled because their engineering shows that having the hitch in place provides just as much protection as the bumper beam. Both hitches reuse the existing factory bolts, so in the case of the Curt hitch they...

    My recommendation for your 2020 Audi SQ5 with lift gate sensors is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 76183. The sensors will only be limited where the center receiver is located. No lasting modifications to the vehicle are needed. If you need the trailer wiring as well, I recommend the ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness w/ 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector and Installation Kit # 119250KIT.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2019 Audi Q5
    For your 2019 Audi Q5 I highly recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Trailer Hitch # 76183 because it offers slightly better ground clearance than the alternatives (you don't have to worry about your bike rack hitting the ground when backing out of the driveway) and the 2" receiver isn't quite as tucked back behind the rear bumper as the others, which offers easier access to the hitch pin hole for mounting the rack. The Class III hitch provides plenty of capacity for a bike rack...

  • Trimming Required for Hitch 76183 Installation on Audi 2018 SQ5
    You can install Draw-Tite hitch # 76183 on your 2018 Audi SQ5 with only minor trimming of the rear fascia. If you refer to the linked photo taken from the included instructions you'll see the small 2 x 3-1/2-inch notch to be made. Just take care that you avoid cutting the wiring behind it. I also include a link to a video for a Q5 installation which will be very similar overall.

  • Confirmation of Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver on a 2018 Audi SQ5
    An aftermarket trailer hitch receiver, like the Draw-Tite # 76183 that is confirmed to fit the 2018 Audi SQ5, are often not designed to install or match a factory hitch receiver. In fact, sometimes when two different manufacturers offer an aftermarket hitch receiver for a specific vehicle, their designs can be completely different from one another.

The video is on the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13331 but will be the same as the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76183. They are both direct fits for your Q5 and will not require any drilling as they install using pre-drilled holes in the frame rail.

  • Will The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Fit The 2020 Audi Q5 Without Affecting Liftgate Sensor
    Good news Ann! When you install a trailer hitch on the 2020 Audi Q5 the middle sensor of the lift gate feature may be blocked by the hitch. However, you will be able to kick either side of the hitch to activate the other sensors. I recommend to use the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76183 on the 2020 Audi Q5 which is a concealed cross tube hitch so the only part of the hitch that is visible once installed is the receiver for a nice clean looking install.

  • Does Draw Tite Hitch for 2019 Audi Q5 Replacing Bumper Beam Affect Safety
    Having a trailer hitch like the Draw Tite # 76183 replace the rear bumper beam of a vehicle like your 2019 Audi Q5 is actually a really common method. Essentially the hitch beam is the same thing as the bumper beam but with a hitch opening attached to it instead.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Audi Q5 with Hands-Free Liftgate
    The hands-free liftgate of your 2018 Audi Q5 can still be used with the Draw Tite Hitch part # 76183 installed. Draw Tite has tested this feature and found that it still worked but you may have to move your foot just to the side of the hitch opening. I prefer the Draw Tite over the Curt equivalent part # C13331 as the Draw Tite does not require the use of a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack.

  • Maximum Tongue Weight Capacity of a 2018 Audi Q5
    According to the owner's manual for a 2018 Audi Q5, the maximum tongue weight capacity for the vehicle is 440 lbs. The factory trailer hitch is more than likely rated higher than this but that is a rather moot point as the vehicle is lower and will be your limiting factor. I do not have any information on the factory trailer hitch for a Q5 but there should be a sticker on the unit which lists both the gross trailer weight (GTW) rating and the tongue weight (TW) rating.

  • 2015 Mazda CX5 AWD Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation
    All of the components you mentioned have the capacity needed for the weight of your CB, but your vehicle does not as it only has a tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs so it would not be possible to use a hitch carrier. You'd have to use a small motorcycle trailer with the Draw Tite hitch part # 76138 instead. For trailer wiring you'd then need the part # 118563.
