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.

I am very happen with my decision to buy this model hitch for my Tiguan. I was hesitant about having to cut the bumper but the final result looks really good. Install was straight forward and not too difficult. The cut I made is smaller than the directions show and I dropped the exhaust completely so the install would be a little easier. etrailer was a great place to order and I will definitely use them again in the future. 708176

Needed some physical persuasion from my friend Jack. He can lift 2 tons. I wouldn’t have needed his help if the mounting flanges were 1/8” further apart (or the mounting points were closer together, not sure whose fault this was). This is the 4th hitch I’ve installed, all different vehicles, and I never had that sort of trouble. This seemed like it would be easy. It took 2-3 hrs. Now that it’s on, it’s pretty good. 527698

Easy to install. Took my time and had no issues. Went against the recommendation for the large hole and trimmed mine out a lot smaller. Looks better that way to me. Only thing was the undercoating on the car made fitting it very snug. But that’s a car issue and not the hitch. You could trim it away if you wanted or just use a small jack to help maneuver it in to place. Would buy again for sure as it’s hardly noticeable 713292

I picked up the Draw-Tite hitch today, followed the instructions in the eTrailer YouTube video (OK, i read the instructions that came with it, too, and took pointers from some of the other DIY comments on the eTrailer website - thanks guys) - and voila - installed! It is heavy and I did use a floor jack and a mallet to to get it up and into place. And like Jim P. said, you don't have to cut out the bottom part of the vinyl fascia. I cut a 3.5 inch square with a keyhole saw for the receiver part to go through, and a 6-inch slot on the bottom for the chain loops to go through. Looking forward to putting it to use this summer with bike rack (and my wife is talking about getting a small camper trailer...) :) Now maybe I can get rid of the webbing hanging there that I use to hold the canoe down... Thanks eTrailer! 517923

The tow hitch is good quality and the delivery was very quick. The problem is with the installation. It took about 1.5 hours because it is such a tight fit. I had to use a jack and a large hammer to get the bar in place over the frame. Once installed it looks nice. I would recommend a second person to install this tow bar, it was a challenge doing it solo. 588589

Great price, and looks nice. Installation was not as easy some of the reviews say. It was very tight and needed some bending, but once we got it over the lip, it fit on nicely. I'm very happy the the end result. I did not cut the top of the plastic molding like they suggested, I made the opening to fit the hitch exactly. If you cut the top of that molding, it will take away the rigidity of it. 561784

etrailer.com - This is my second purchase from etrailer.com and a second great experience. Order was processed immediately and shipped promptly. Received as expected. 2 thumbs up! Draw-tite - Great quality product. No flaws. Powder coating is nice and thick and fabrication is great. It does fit like a glove, do not confuse this with other reviews stating it does not fit because it is too narrow to fit the frame. Most automobile frames have under-coating which does makes it more difficult to fit. I used 2 auto floor jacks to gently push hitch into place. - Overall the hitch will take some persuasion to get into place. This is not a fitment issue. I used a combination of tools including my floor jacks and a dead-blow hammer to get the hitch into place and align the mounting holes. - I chose this hitch specifically because you do have to trim the fascia. I like this because it looks OEM and provides more clearance as the receiver is 2+ inches higher than other hitch options that hang below the fascia. 722998

Very easy to mount, recommend a second set of hands. I mounted myself with the help of a floor jack but wished I would have had a little help just because it was a little heavy. I would have given it more stars but the directions lack photos of the installed product and they have you cut the bottom section (the 1-1/2” x 3”) for really no reason. It didn’t need to be cut, there was enough room to put the front up above the exhaust and then back through the bumper. Luckily it can’t be seen or I really would have been upset. 479640

Nearly impossible to fit without removing the bumper. "Trimming" isn't exactly what is required. No wonder they didn't have a video of this model, only the Curt without trimming. I wish I had ordered it instead. Unfortunately, I'm now stuck with a $144 lump of metal in my garage. 547794


Comments
Trimming of the fascia is an installation step for this hitch part # 76192. You will be trimming a 3 x 6 inch square in the bumper fascia to allow clearance for the hitch receiver. The Curt model receiver is straight down so it does not require trimming. It is not necessary to remove the bumper for installation of part 76192 or the Curt model. I have heard of some instances when the brackets that hold the exhaust hangers are welded to the frame on the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan but you are still able to remove the exhaust from the rubber hanger, lower it and leave the brackets on the frame. That will still give you enough room to bolt the hitch up there.

2nd sets of hands a must!! Even then took us 1.5 hours due to distance between mounting flanges too tight as per Adam’s remarks below. We had the same problem. Had to hit it with a sledge hammer to widen the distance between flanges at the mounting points. For sure a manufacturing defect. TIPS: 1) don’t jack up the car on one side only -- lift it evenly; 2) when you cut the vinyl fascia, use a thin saw as it is difficult to cut the form as shown in my picture -- recommended by Ray. I still prefer this hitch above the CURT model due to its height and pricing. Giving it 3 stars for manufacturing defect and difficulty of installation but it earns 5 stars otherwise. 528894


Comments
I hope the manufacturer noted all the comments from customers about the width between the flanges being too tight. The product itself is excellent

It is not uncommon for hitches to flex a bit in the shipping process and for some force needed to bend them back into correct alignment. I have included a help article that does explain this in further detail.

Just installed on our 2018 Tiguan R-Line. Overall: Arrived quick, does not detract from the the looks of the vehicle, works great. Details: Read all the installation tips. I did not have the problem some had mentioned regarding the brackets being not wide enough; fit prefectly. I'd recommend the extra set(s) of hands (which I didn't have). 1) I measured and cut the fascia(rear bumper cover) to fit as recommended. Used a drill on the corners and small hacksaw blade. Take your time. I did not cut thought the bottom or top of the plastic, just big enough to fit the receiver and bottom rings. I did not account for the plate above the hitch receiver. It does push out the plastic a bit but not noticeable. I think to make that fit you would need to cut through the top of the plastic, and I think if I let a shop do the cutting, they would not have been nearly as precise. 2) Dropping the exhaust is easy, but it's not far enough, you will need to push the muffler a few inches lower when sliding the hitch over the top before sliding it aft through the hole in the bumper. 3) I used a floor jack and a couple of jack stands, which, if you are patient and move slowly, will work, only a couple of bloody knuckles. I could not get the receiver to clear the fascia in order to slide it through the hole, but got it close enough to be able to bend the plastic out a bit and get the receiver through. 4) Biggest tip...slide all 4 bolts in the holes (front first seemed easier) and only finger tighten enough to take the weight, make sure both rear bolts are seated in the threads and then tighten all four. I didn't do this the first time and couldn't get the last bolt to bite, once the others were loosened it went in fine. Completed hitch looks really good, but since it does not extend past the rear bumper (which is why is looks great) it is a bit challenging to get a hitch pin/lock in and use the chain rings, but I'd rather have that than a hitch extending past the bumper. First use was a bike rack...I was not expecting the Tiguans rear safety assist system to not allow me to back up as it saw a "conflict". A few minutes in the menu and I figured out how to turn that off. Very pleased, much better than the dealers quote of almost $1000. I'll get to the electric hookups over the winter just in case we ever need them, but primarily installed it for bikes. No picks since it looke pretty much like the rest. Highly recommended. 565933

After looking over pictures and watching videos I purchased the DrawTite hitch. I liked the higher mount and, as one reviewer noted, it has a cleaner look as if it came from the factory. I looked over several pictures of installs from etrailer reviewers and noticed that one person did a nice job of custom cutting the facia for a cleaner install than what the instructions call for. Essentially this means making a cut that looks like an inverted T so the fascia sits tighter to the square tube of the receiver. I also did not cut the bottom of the fascia as shown in the instructions, instead I installed the hitch by putting the receiver end up and through the facia opening first and then lifted the rest of the hitch into place. It took a little back and forth to get the hitch flanges around the exhaust but wasn't too bad of a job. I got a great fit. Here's what I didn't like and what I had problems with, which is my reason for only 3 stars. I used a transmission jack to lift the hitch into place (several reviewers noted this and I expected to use a jack as I have always done on several prior installs). The hitch went up into place but hung up about one inch too low and bound on the frames factory undercoating. A few reviewers noted the fit was a tight. I had to drive the hitch into place with a 2 lb hammer which knocked the powder coating off the hitch on the edges and I now have unprotected metal on the hitch and the hitch flanges peeled some of the undercoating off the vehicle because the fit was really too tight. The hitch mounting flanges need to be about 1/4" to 1/2" wider to make this an easy install. Trying to get the hitch into place without using a hammer to drive it wasted a lot of time and the install took over 2 hours with the tight fit and my not wanting to drive the hitch into place. I tried jacking the hitch into place and the fit was so tight that it lifted the back of the Tiguan. The plus side is that the install does look great. 577795


Comments
It sounds like you had a bit of a flexed hitch. Since the hitches are made from a pliable steel it is possible for the brackets to bend a bit in shipping. The hitches are designed to flex with the vehicle in rough terrain. We usually recommend using a table vise or open step to sort of bend it back into place. If you have bare metal scratches you can use a rustoleum type of paint on the scratches to avoid future issues with rust. It is a good idea to check the hitch periodically for scratches that come about from flying rocks and debris and touch them up with paint.

Quality item. Seems to be very well built and the paint seems like it should hold up better than other hitches I've had in the past. Install was pretty easy.

Have had this trailer hitch for a year and I can say its a great piece. Considering how heavy duty it is I was really surprised at how reasonably priced it is. I dont want to use the term CHEAP because there is nothing cheap about it. Yes, it was a little scary making a cut into a brand new cars lower valence but I wanted to have a hitch that didn't hang super low for fear of scraping on exiting steep driveways. Perfect for us - we used it with a trailer cargo tray to allow for extra storage outside of the car when camping. In combination with a roof box we had plenty of room to take 5 adults and 2 children in a 3 row SUV camping. On normal weekends when we aren't camping we actually have the Yakima Swing Daddy and this thing again is perfect for that use too allowing us to get our bikes and the kids bikes to nearby parks with big open spaces to allow them to ride. Installation -- it was easy but you must be aware that this thing is pretty damn heavy and lifting it into position is not easy without help. I happen to have a transmission jack which allowed me a little help. The fitment is very tight -- maybe by design but you need to line up those bolts and when its pushing down with you because of gravity its hard. Stripping out a bolt hole in your subframe is a concern as its really hard to push up and align a bolt that you cant see at the same time. I did and had to use a tap to clean the threads -- so if you don't want to risk it -- a professional probably shouldn't charge you more than an hours worth of labor to do this. etrailer's service has always been and in this instance was amazing - I would never buy any auto accessory elsewhere if etrailer stocks it -- and their prices are better than other places including the big ONLINE shopping conglomerate that everyone goes to. I would not suggest shopping the CONGLOMERATE as they don't need your support and you wont get any help if you have a problem. 809476

    If you are concerned with keeping the OEM wiring safe on your 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan then the Curt T-Connector # C56403 that you are looking at is actually the perfect solution! Yes it does tee in with the tail lights on your Tiguan but those basically just act as triggers. Since this wiring harness draws power directly from the battery on your VW and it uses an integrated module (the black box) so if anything were to become damaged from your trailer the ModuLite would stop it. The only...

  • Trailer Hitch Fit for 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan R-Line

In terms of modification there will be some trimming required of the fascia as you can see in the accompanying cut out of the instructions (these instructions are also linked for you to check out).

  • Ground Clearance Under Curt C13381 Installed on 2019 VW Tiguan
    When installed on a 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan, the underside of the Curt Class III hitch # C13381 is approximately 9-1/4 inches above the ground. For a bit more ground clearance, take a look at the Draw-Tite Class III hitch, part # 76192. When installed, the underside of the receiver tube will be about 12-3/4 inches off the ground. This extra ground clearance is gained because the Draw-Tite hitch requires that the rear bumper fascia be trimmed so that the receiver tube sits tight against the...

  • Ground Clearance with Curt Trailer Hitch C12177 Installed on a 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan
    When we installed Curt trailer hitch # C12177 on a 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan, see video link, it measured 11-1/2 inches from the ground to the top of the receiver opening. That means that from the ground to the bottom of the receiver is approximately 9 inches. There is actually a vehicle component forward of the hitch that hangs lower. For the hitch to make contact with the ground the front axle would have to be up on a very steep incline. Draw-Tite hitch # 76192 sits up higher but there...

  • Trailer Hitch Fit for 2018 VW Tiguan with AWD and 3rd Row Seating
    I checked with my contacts at Curt and Draw-Tite for hitches confirmed to fit your 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan with AWD and 3rd row seating. Draw-Tite confirmed that they know of no fit issues for their hitch # 76192 and Curt advised the same for their hitch # C13381. Curt confirms a fit for their USA-made hitch # C13381 on the S, SE, SEL and SEL Premium versions of the 2018 Tiguan. Sometimes certain features on a vehicle may in fact prevent hitch installation. This might be the placement...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for Leased 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan
    Since your 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is a lease you really will want the Curt hitch part # C13381 as it is a confirmed fit and does not require fascia trimming like the Draw Tite part # 76192 does. Curt requires the use of their stabilizer strap part # 18050 when using their hitch to carry a non-supported load like a bike rack. I attached a review video for you to check for the strap as well.

  • Ground Clearance with Curt Hitch C12177 on 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan
    When we installed Curt trailer hitch # C12177 on a 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan, the top of the reciever tube measured about 11 1/2" from the ground. The bottom of the cross tube will be about 10" off the ground at the lowest point, since the receiver is 1 1/4". If ground clearance is the biggest concern for your Tiguan, I recommend Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76192. It sits out 2 inches higher than any of the other hitches for your Tiguan, however it does involve trimming...

  • Is There a Difference Between Thule Pro XT Bike Racks That Fit 2 Inch and 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitches
    While you are smart to check, there is no difference at all between the Thule T2 Pro XTB # TH9034XT (Black) and T2 Pro XTS # TH9034XTS (Silver) - both of which fit a 2 inch trailer hitch - and the Thule T2 Pro XTB # TH9035XT (Black) and T2 Pro XTS # TH9035XTS (Silver) which fit a 1-1/4 inch hitch.
