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.

Very solid and easy to install. Two people are not required, but definitely makes it easier, as it heavy to hold with one had and screw in bolts. Took about 45 minutes.

See what our Experts say about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch



  • Do I Have To Relocate My Hands Free Sensor If I Install The Draw-Tite Hitch Receiver
    Yes, you might have to relocate the sensor. Typically relocating the sensor is not a problem on the MDX. My recommendation would be to install the trailer hitch, the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2", part # DT42MR, and test the hands free liftgate. If it works to your satisfaction, you do not have to change anything. We have had customers, and employees, have luck kicking their foot to the right or left of center to activate the hands free liftgate....

  • Does Draw Tite Hitch for 2022 Acura MDX Require Fascia Cutting to Install
    The Draw Tite Hitch part # DT42MR that you referenced does not require any fascia cutting or drilling to install. It basically just bolts up in place like you mentioned. It also would not void the hitch warranty either. I also attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Liftgate Sensor Relocation Bracket on 2022 Acura MDX
    The Acura MDX is the 'sister' vehicle to the Honda Pilot. The MDX and Pilot typically don't have problems with the hitch interfering with the liftgate sensors. I believe you're thinking about the RDX/Honda CR-V which frequently has an issue with the sensors once a hitch is installed. Like most vehicles with the liftgate sensors, installing a hitch like the Draw-Tite # DT42MR on the MDX/Pilot may interfere with the sensors at the center of the vehicle under the hitch receiver tube, but...

  • Do Trailer Hitches for 2022 Acura MDX Fit the A-Spec Models

  • Draw-Tite or Curt Hitch Receiver for 2022 Acura MDX
    I would be happy to help you. The difference in the installation time between the two hitch receiver's on your 2022 Acura MDX is that the Curt item # C22HR sits lower when mounted so it does not requiring trimming of the rear bumper cover. The Draw-TIte item # DT42MR sits higher after installation which requires you to cut a 4" x 3.5" section of your rear bumper cover out. I recommend going with the Draw-Tite hitch receiver item # DT42MR because of its final mounting location after install....

  • What Trailer Hitches Fit A 2022 Acura MDX A-Spec
    We do have a few options for your 2022 Acura MDX A-Spec, like the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT42MR and the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C22HR. Both trailer hitches are rated at the same capacities of 6,000lbs GTW, and 900lbs tongue weight. These trailer hitches are also available to be used with a weight distribution system rated at a maximum of 8,000 lbs GTW and 900 lbs TW. Out of those two hitches, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame # DT42MR. Reason being is that,...

  • Recommended 4-Bike Rack for a 2022 Acura MDX
    In order to carry bikes on a 2022 Acura MDX you will fist want to start with a trailer hitch and for this I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # DT42MR which is a direct bolt on fit. It has a class III rating with 2" receiver tube opening which means the lists of bike rack options is endless. I recommend checking out the Thule Hitching Post Pro part # TH934XTR which is one of our best selling bike racks due to the features it offers like an anti-rattle hitch bolt...

  • Comparing Trailer Hitch Options for a 2022 Acura MDX
    The trailer hitch options for a 2022 Acura MDX are all going to be pretty similar. If you'll be towing then I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # DT42MR since it has a built-in bracket for the trailer connector but if you're just going to be using bike racks and cargo carriers I recommend the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e27KR. The Draw-Tite hitch offers the best ground clearance but this also means you must trim the bumper. That said, ground clearance...

  • How far does the Draw-Tite Receiver Hitch Extend Below the Rear Bumper on a 2022 Acura MDX?
    I can confirm that the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver item # DT42MR does not hang below the rear bumper trim on a 2022 Acura MDX. The installation instructions show a diagram of a 4 inch wide by 3.5 inch wide hole needing to be cut out of your bumper trim to allow access for the hitch receiver. Whether or not you replace the rear trim piece would be your choice. I have attached a link to the installation instructions. I recommend the Tekonsha Upgraded Heavy Duty ModuLite Circuit...

    For your 2022 Acura MDX I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT42MR. This is a custom fit Class III hitch with a 2" receiver. It features a concealed cross tube to help maintain a factory look and a black powder coat finish. The # DT42MR has a max gross trailer weight of 6,000 lbs and tongue weight of 900 lbs.

  • 2022 Acura MDX Trailer Hitch Recommendation
    I recommend going with the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT42MR for your 2022 Acura MDX Type S (this hitch fits all models). We don't have any notes about this interfering with your foot sensor but it isn't uncommon for people to have to kick to either side of the hitch receiver as opposed to swiping your foot under the bumper. To wrap up your towing setup you need the T-One Wiring # TK59VR and a ball mount kit like the part # 989892. Attached are some videos for you to...

  • Recommended Hitch And Bike Rack For A 2022 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid Model
    To start with, the Thule Hitching Post Pro - Folding Tilting 4 Bike Rack w Anti-Sway - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches Item # TH934XTR is definitely a nice hanging rack option. This is American made and has a Lifetime Warranty, but it does not include locks and getting the bikes on the rack can be a little difficult. Personally, I prefer platform style racks like the Swagman Chinook Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # S64683. Though not American made, this does include locks that lock the bike rack to the...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring that Fits 2022 Acura MDX
    We have a Draw Tite hitch that fits your 2022 Acura MDX with the part # DT42MR but the part number you mentioned does not fit. The one that does fit is mostly hidden and has great towing capacities. I attached an install video for more info on it as well. For trailer wiring you'd then want the # TK59VR which is the most reliable and easiest to install.

  • Comparing Draw-Tite and Curt Trailer Hitch Receivers for 2022 Acura MDX
    The Curt # C22HR and Draw-Tite # DT42MR are both very similar. Each is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver and a concealed cross tube. They have the same maximum gross trailer weight of 6,000 lbs and tongue weight of 900 lbs. The main difference is that the Draw-Tite sits a little higher with better ground clearance. This does, however, mean that trimming of the fascia is required. The # DT42MR also comes with a bracket welded on for trailer wiring. Ultimately I would recommend the Draw-Tite...

  • 2022 Acura MDX Hitch Receiver and Spare Tire Space
    I will be happy to clear up the confusion for you. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver item # C22HR you referenced and the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver item # DT42MR will only accommodate the 18" spare on your 2022 Acura MDX. These are the only two hitches available for your 2022 MDX and both have the same dimensions and limitations when it comes to room for your spare tire. The spare tire mounted on the 20" wheel will not fit. Both of these hitches are custom fit and bolt directly...

  • Does Installing Trailer Hitch on 2022 Acura MDX Affect Hands Free Liftgate Operation
    We've received conflicting reports regarding whether or not the Curt # C22HR or the Draw-Tite # DT42MR interferes with the hands free liftgate feature of the 2022 Acura MDX. We've had some state that the hitch partially interferes with the sensors, but if the user waves their foot to the right or left of the receiver tube by about 12 inches and a few inches deeper under the vehicle, in most cases the sensors will read the movement and the rear hatch will open. If you do find that the...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2022 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid
    I recommend installing the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT42MR on your 2022 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid. This features a hidden crosstube for a clean looking installation and then it also has a mounting bracket for wiring in case you'd like to add wiring like the T-One # TK59VR and a bracket like # 18144. Then if you don't already have a bike rack I highly recommend checking out the Yakima StageTwo Bike Rack # Y47VR because it has a lot of easy-to-use features and is compatible...
