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. Technical Support

At 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 2 1/2 inch Titan Class V hitch is the biggest, baddest hitch I've ever seen and I've been trailering for 25 years! I was maxing out the weight limits on my factory installed hitch and this bad boy will handle anything my truck is capable of hauling. My truck is an '03 Chevy Silverado 3500 Crew Cab Dually with the Duramax diesel engine and it only came with a hitch that carries 7500 w/o weight bars and 12,000 with bars. The Titan carries 18,000 lbs!! Awesome! Install time was under an hour with no problems to speak of. Check out my pics. One has the hitch installed, the other is a side by side shot of the old hitch and the Titan. 10076

This is the baddest hitches I have ever seen. The install was very simple and quick, make sure you have a friend help it is a little heavy. If you pull a trailer like I do every day this is a must have. Look at the photos posted below by another person and you can see the size difference in the hitches. You will be very pleased you upgraded. 36107

The customer service was great ! The hitch is seriously stout !! Pretty easy to install and much more heavy duty than the factory hitch that came on my Chevy dually . Seems to be a good solid product . My only complaint was the instructions I found them to be less than great and the extra hardware made it a bit confusing . 238858

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

  • Hitch Extender to Tow a Trailer with a 2005 GMC Sierra 2500 with Truck Bed Camper
  • First you will need to determine if the trailer hitch on your 2005 GMC Sierra 2500 is a 2 inch or 2-1/2 inch. Just measure the opening width to determine the size. I am assuming that the tailgate is down and/or the camper overhangs the back of the truck thus the need for an extension. I recommend an extension that is long enough to where the face of the receiver is flush with or a few inches recessed under the rear most part of the truck or camper, whichever extends out the furthest.

  • Hitch Extender to Tow a Trailer for 2011 Ford F-450 with 2017 Mammoth Camper in Bed
  • You might not need a hitch extender. It is possible that a long ball mount will have the length needed to provide clearance for towing the trailer. Ball mount # 80232 measures 16 inches from the center of the pin hole to the center of the ball hole. It is rated for 6,000 pounds gross trailer weight and it has a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop. It fits a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver so if you have the factory 2-1/2 inch receiver you would also need to use a reducer sleeve such as # C45405. A...

  • 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch With Best Ground Clearance for a 2007 Chevy Silverado 3500 Classic
  • Ground clearance is generally not a problem on full size trucks like your 2007 Chevy Silverado 3500. With that said the 2-1/2 inch hitches for the truck do hang fairly low. The Draw-Tite hitches # DT45519 and # DT45517 fit a little tighter to the rear bumper than the other options but only just.

  • How to Extend a Class III, 2 Inch Trailer Hitch at Least 24 Inches
  • The longest hitch extender for 2 inch hitches is 18 inches long, # C45796. If you use it with a long ball mount, # C45230, it would provide and overall extension of about 29 inches. Please note that the use of an extender will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent at least. If you were to use the ball mount only it would not reduce the tongue weight capacity. But by using an extender it does reduce the capacity.
