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.

This product is awesome! The install was easy! Tip, you don’t need to remove the exhausts. I just removed the rear lower diffuser and entered the hitch posteriorly into the undercarriage. It’s was so simple. The build quality on this hitch is top notch. I plan on using this hitch for a 218 lbs dirt bike carrier. Def recommend! Instal time : 45mins 711625

This hitch is heavy! It fit the way it is advertised, no problems. I only had to loosen one muffler to install. Great product! 682386

Draw-tight makes a good product. Relatively easy to install. The RDX has dual exhausts. Each exhaust/muffler has two hangers- one near the bumper and one closer to the middle of the car. Using a muffler tool, I unhooked the left muffler from its hanger nearest the bumper. I did not unhook the left muffler from its hanger closer to the middle of the car. I didn’t touch the right muffler. Next, to give myself some room, I unscrewed the ornamental end of the left muffler. (It attaches underneath with a small blot) These two steps allowed enough give to move the left muffler enough to install the hitch. I needed my spouse to pull the left muffler to the outside while I lifted the hitch into place. It cleared by millimeters. A car jack served to hold the hitch while I screwed in the bolts. Used a Torque wrench and a little red locktite glue to make sure the bolts were secure to the frame. As for the torque wrench, the salesman at the hardware store hinted that I should buy it, use it, and return it. I’m not saying that’s what I did, but most probably people don’t have repeated need for a torque wrench. Some auto stores allow you to rent auto tools (you buy them and return them), which is a good option, if you don’t need this somewhat specialty product. The muffler hanger tool - another speciality tool - was super helpful. Cost me $17. Probably could have dropped the muffler from the rear hanger with some WD 40 and a strong screwdriver, but space under there is somewhat limited, (I did all the work on my back with the car unelevated) so the hanger tool was helpful. In the end, it took me about 45 min to install. The first 20 min were spent trying to contort the hitch into place without releasing a muffler. I finally gave up and took the steps above. In the end, a fun project. 696783

Great product. Fits perfectly beneath the rear diffuser of the A-Spec. Installation was on par with what I expected. After removing the exhaust from the rubber hangers it still only gave a small amount of space to maneuver the hitch into place. It is a very snug fit. It does stick out farther than I expected but not enough to be concerning. Looks great and will soon be mated to a Yakima HoldUp. Im very happy with it and it shipped incredibly quickly. I placed my order late in the evening and had a shipping notification by the time I woke up. 721988

The trailer hitch arrived very quick and was very easy to install. I was able to angle in the trailer hitch from between the rear bumper and the bottom of the dual exhaust without any rubbing or damage. No need to lower the exhaust. Installed in 30 mins! 677730

2019 Subaru Forester

This is my second order from etrailer and the comments apply to both orders, class two hitches and electrical harnesses for a Subaru Forester XT and a 2020 Acura RDX. The hitches arrived promptly, well packaged with no damage. I could install them with minimal fuss. Hardest part was loosening the rubber exhaust hangers. Everything lined up and works fine. Haven't towed with the RDX yet, but towed a trailer with several motorcycles on the XT for a few hundred miles in MD and PA with no issues. etrailer offers a great product, ships promptly, at a decent price. Will definitely continue to be a customer. 690507

Product looks good but will have to get it installed. I need a muffler hanger removal tool to install, just as the instructions say. One negitive took too long to get part. 609674

by:
2019 Acura RDX

The hitch arrived quickly. I had a local mechanic install it and it took them less than an hour and cost me an additional $50 but worth it since I have no experience or tools to lower the muffler. It fit perfectly around the spare tire kit I have under the car. I have the Advance model and the only negative is it does completely block the sensors under the bumper which allows for the foot to activate the rear hatch. No matter where I place my foot, I cannot activate the sensor. Not a big issue but not ideal. When Acura installs their hitch, they have to install a new sensor. Of course, all of that is way more expensive. 680336

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

  • Trailer Hitch that Fits 2019 Acura RDX
    The Curt hitch part # C13130 does not fit the 2019 Acura RDX. For a hitch we do know is a fit for the 2019 RDX we have the Draw Tite part # 76268 which is also a Class III hitch with a 2 inch opening. There was some confusion at one point and the Curt was thought to be a fit for the 2019 model but now we know it does not fit.

  • Trailer Hitch Fit For a 2019 Acura RDX
    There is a trailer hitch fit for your 2019 Acura RDX, though to answer your specific question, nobody has used Trailer Hitch # E98840 on a '19 RDX as it does not fit. For your 2019 Acura RDX the hitch that fits is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch # 76268, which is a Class III hitch with a 3,500 lb towing capacity and 350 lb tongue weight capacity. This hitch is a complete bolt-on installation that does not require any drilling into your RDX to install and it comes with a lifetime...

  • Trailer Hitch Fit for a 2020 Acura RDX A-Spec
    Draw-Tite has no fit exclusions for the A-Spec, so they consider the # 76268 hitch to be a fit. I've spent a bit of time looking at photos of the rear of the standard RDX versus the A-Spec model, and haven't seen too much of a difference. Usually the two factors are a different exhaust or a lowered rear fascia. In doing the eye test, nothing jumped out anything that would prevent the hitch from fitting. If you'll be towing with your RDX, you'll need a few other items to complete your...

  • Trailer Hitch Solution for 2019 Acura RDX with 19 inch Spare Wheel/Tire
    I have a solution for you but none of the hitches we offer for your 2019 Acura RDX with Tech Package can be used with a 19 inch spare stored underneath the vehicle. So what your best option would be is replace the spare you have with a smaller one from Acura so that you can then install the Draw Tite hitch part # 76268. For trailer wiring you'd then want the Tekonsha kit part # 118800 and you'd be set with an easy to install trailer wiring harness setup that's also very reliable.

  • Recommended Hitch-Mounted Bike Rack for 2019 Acura RDX
    For use with the Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch # 76268 on your 2019 Acura RDX (which is currently the only hitch available for this vehicle) I highly recommend the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack, which is available in Black # SH22B, Gray # SH22G, and Pearl # SH22P. This is an excellent platform-style carrier that will secure your bikes by the front wheels without any frame contact. It features ratcheting hooks to allow for a precise and snug fit over the bikes, a super convenient foot...

  • Does the Draw-Tite Hitch for a 2019 Acura RDX Stick Out Past the Bumper
    Correct, the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76268 which is a fit for your 2019 Acura RDX does indeed sit below the rear spare tire. Generally speaking, hitch manufactures will position the receiver tube so it does not stick out past the rear bumper but rather flush to it or just a few inches behind it. Unfortunately, I don't have any specifics for you at this time. That said, after looking at the install photo (attached) of the Draw-Tite hitch on your RDX it appears that...

    The Draw-Tite Class II trailer hitch part # 36114 attaches to the RDX frame member using two weld nuts on each side. I've linked the installation instructions for you as a reference. As you can see in the provided photo, the receiver tube does extend out quite a bit, this is caused by the vehicle's spare tire being in such close proximity to the rear bumper. If the spare was tucked back in a bit more toward the front of the vehicle, the receiver tube wouldn't stick out so far. Welding the...

  • Trailer Hitch That Fits 2019 Acura RDX
    Yes, Draw-Tite makes two hitches to choose from on the 2020 Acura RDX. My recommendation is the 2" receiver model, # 76268 because it should make available more accessory options. More cargo baskets, bike racks, and other accessories are available in 2" because they are very common. That said, the # 36114 is a solid option of hitch as well with the same capacity and tongue weight. Either hitch would be a great choice for your 2020 Acura RDX but my pick would be the 2" receiver on...

Hitch installs are relatively easy for them as they deal with much harder jobs on a daily basis. I'd just find a local shop that you know has a great reputation and let them install it.

    According to the installation instructions for the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76268 which is a fit for your 2019 Acura RDX, the exhaust must be lowered temporarily in order to position the hitch up under the vehicle.

I contacted Draw-Tite and they have tested the hitch on all of the trim packages available for the 2019 Acura RDX and did not have to cut the fascia on the bumper. The biggest difference between the standard package 2019 Acura RDX bumper and the Aspec bumper is the honeycomb mesh above the bumper on the Aspec. The hitch fits under the bumper just like the photo I have attached on a standard 2019 Acura RDX.

Even if you install the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 76268, which has a 3,500 lb towing capacity, your '19 RDX will still only have a 1,500 lb capacity.

  • Largest Under Vehicle Mounted Spare Tire That Allows Hitch on Acura RDX
    The Draw-Tite # 76268 is designed to fit on the 2019 and 2020 Acura RDX but will only allow for spare tires with up to 18" wheels on it to fit normally with this hitch installed. Unfortunately there is not a hitch available that you can store your full sized 20" spare tire underneath and still attach the hitch. For this reason, you would need to find an alternative solution to carry your spare tire in order to install a hitch receiver like the Draw-Tite # 76268.
