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.

I installed this hitch on a 2021 Venza after confirming from etrailer the hitch was confirmed to fit. The hitch arrived from etrailer as described and on time. Great company! I am not a mechanic but pretty handy and I installed it in about 1 1/2 hours without any issues. I am totally impressed at what an exact fit it is and how easy it was to install. I will be using this hitch for my bike rack and bikes as I couldn’t anything but an activity mount from Toyota as they don’t recommend towing with this vehicle. But this hitch is the perfect product for my needs!


Comments
Excellent product. Would buy it again.

This hitch doe not show (except for the hitch itself). I love the fact that it has a lifetime guarantee. It took only an hour to put on the car.


Comments
This has been a great hitch. I like the fact that it looks so clean on the car compared to what you see with U-Haul trailer hitches.

by:

Extremely happy with this hitch. Used primarily for a hitch-mounted bike rack.




by:

Hitch was excellent but the installation instructions were definitely lacking for anyone not familiar with auto interior trim.

It's possible to install alone but I would NOT recommend it.




by:

The connectors and instructions were good overall. Removing and installing the trim on the drivers side took longer then expected. The biggest problem I encountered was the rear door wouldn't close, it would beep twice and nothing. After trying various things to reset, to include restoring to original, with no avail. I gently closed the door by hand and then the auto lock engaged and issue was resolved. As expected the foot sensor doesn't work anymore, rarely used it anyway, turned off on the settings to prevent accidental opening.




by:

This trailer hitch receiver has performed extremely well. The installation has been perfect. I would highly recommend this hitch for anyone.




by:
2021 Toyota Venza

Well engineered. Looks factory, no exposed tubing like many competitors. Went on a 2021 Toyota Venza. Install took about half hr.

Product package could be better to prevent scrapes/nicks which mine had. Did not bother me as it’s all hidden. Would recommend

poor customer service for a product that was delivered damaged.

I received the hitch bent which I found out only after working on the install with my partner for a few hours and wondering why it wouldnt fit.

I called customer service who asked me to unbend the hitch myself. They provided online instructions to do so, however my attempts were unsuccessful mainly because I do not have the equipment. I also contacted the manufacturer (Draw-tite) and attempted to follow their instructions but could not straighten the hitch. I followed up with customer service at etrailer but I had to argue my way to ask for a free return label (wanted me to ship back a product that was damaged on arrival at my cost). Doesnt end here, the entire process to receive a replacement product will take about 2 or more weeks. My original order was shipped and delivered within 3 business day, which I was hoping to expect at the very least for the replacement so I can install the hitch without putting in additional time putting my car back together then apart again when the hitch arrives. I need my car for my commutes.

I am hoping customer service will be able to see this review and expedite the return as my car is set up perfectly for the install as it is right now.




by:

Excellent hitch. Easy to assemble. Fits a toyota venza 2021 perfectly.




by:

great went on in 20 minutes




by:

Installation was very straightforward, everything fit perfectly, and I was able to install it in about an hour. Please note that it’s much easier with an extra pair of hands to help hold the hitch in place while you are screwing in the bolts




by:
2021 Toyota Venza

took hour and half to install, needed two floor jacks to press the hitch into place...the mounting brackets were just slightly curved inward more than required and thus would not slide into place. Even with crowfoot could not torque one bolt. The exhaust mount removal tool worked fantastically.




by:
Toyota Venza

This hitch was the perfect match for my new Toyota Venza. It was very easy to put on and would have gone quicker it I had paid attention to the instructions about removing the tow adapter on the rear passenger side.

I really love it when you get a product that does exactly as described.

Regards...




by:

Good price. Installed by a local auto mechanic. No problems after one year of use.




by:

I have ordered a number of trailer hitches for cars and I must say this one for the benzo was part of the easiest install I've ever done and everything worked perfect great company plus shipping to two days which I was very surprised how quick that showed up thank you very much




by:

It came on time. Looks great. If it fits I’ll be quite happy!!




by:
2021 Toyota Venza

This hitch works very well with my 2021 Toyota Venza. I had a body shop install it. It took 2 men to do it, but it only took an hour.




by:

Arrived in reasonable time. I have purchase many things over the years from etrailer and they have always come through. Thanks. A little more padding is a easy thing to do.




by:
2021 Toyota Venza

Item was exactly what they described it to be. Very heavy and very strong. Insulation does take time but can be done best to have a second person to help. Also a jack with wood would be recommended to thank you for your help in guidance




by:

Product received in a timely manner. Installation was very easy. Nice product!

Installed on 2021 Venza very quickly and looks terrific.

  • Will Hands Free Liftgate of 2021 Toyota Venza Still Work After Install of Draw Tite Hitch
    We've not had any customers come back and have issues with the hands free lift gate of their 2021 Toyota Venza after the install of the Draw Tite hitch part # DT46MR you referenced. At worst you might have to kick to either side of the hitch opening.

  • Is the Draw-Tite Hitch for a 2021 Toyota Venza Hidden
    The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # DT46MR for a 2021 Toyota Venza has a hidden design which means the crosstube is concealed behind the bumper and cannot be seen from outside the vehicle. It does require the muffler be lowered, not removed but most hitches do require lowering of the exhaust.

  • What To Do If Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch DR46MR Is Not Lining Up With Frame Of 2021 Toyota Venza
    I am sorry to hear that! It is not unheard of for the side plates of trailer hitches to get flexed during shipping due to the size and weight of trailer hitches. To fix this issue on the Draw-Tite # DT46MR you purchased for your 2021 Toyota Venza you will just need to follow the steps shown in the included help article to get it straight and ready to be installed on your vehicle. I included a video of the # DT46MR being installed for you to take a look at.

    I have a different option for you, but the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT82MR is not confirmed to fit your 2021 Toyota Venza Hybrid as it was designed for the Volkswagen Amarok. For your vehicle you will need the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # DT46MR which will fit your Hybrid model just fine and gives a 525lb tongue weight rating and 3500lb trailer weight rating. If you are planning on towing a trailer with your Venza you will also need a vehicle wiring harness # C57ER, and a ball...

  • What Hitch/Bike Rack Combination Would You Recommend for My 2021 Toyota Venza?
    For your 2021 Toyota Venza, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT46MR because it has a greater tongue weight and towing capacity than the Curt Trailer Hitch # C89UR. For a bike rack, you will need a rack that fits a 2 inch hitch. I recommend the Thule Doubletrack Platform-Style # TH990XT because it is a top-of-the-line brand that includes a locking security system, an integrated folding level system, and it folds down for easy access to the trunk cargo area....

    It may be possible that the Draw-Tite # 36675 for a 2021 Toyota RAV4 will fit your 2021 Toyota Venza, but this has not been tested so I cannot confirm this. I recommend going with the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # DT46MR which is confirmed to fit your 2021 Toyota Venza, and the 2" receiver will allow you more options when it comes to accessories like a bike rack, cargo carrier, or ball mount for towing a trailer.

    We haven't had the opportunity to install the Draw-Tite # DT46MR on a 2021 Toyota Venza yet, so we don't have a precise measurement but previous Venza generations have had as little as 3-1/2" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper. We have been fortunate enough that some of our neighbors were gracious enough to share their photos of the installed Draw-Tite # DT46MR on their 2021 Venzas and it appears that the clearance is actually a bit better now, which makes the...

  • Tongue Weight Limit of Trailer Hitch Receivers For 2021 Toyota Venza

The hitches that fit your '21 Venza are the following: - Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT46MR - Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C89UR

  • Difference Between Class I, II, and III Trailer Hitch Receivers
    The main difference between trailer hitch classes is the towing capacity (GTW) and tongue weight capacity (TW). Typically class I and II hitches come with a 1-1/4" receiver instead of a 2" receiver but there are a few on the market that do have a 2" receiver. Most trailer hitch accessories, like bike racks or cargo carriers for example, are made to fit 2" receivers. There are some that fit 1-1/4" receiver but with a 2" receiver you can always use a reducer to have a 1-1/4" accessory fit....

    We certainly do! I'd recommend the Curt Class III hitch, part # C89UR. The hitch would be a great attachment point for a hitch mounted accessory like a bike rack or cargo carrying tray, but the owner's manual states that the vehicle shouldn't be used for towing.

The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT46MR is also a confirmed fit for the 2021 Toyota Venza; this too is a Class III receiver hitch only available in 2".

I have included pictures from the instructions for each receiver and you can see there is not a noticeable difference. The Curt # C89UR cross tube is fully hidden behind the bumper trim and the receiver tube hangs below the cross bar to achieve this look.

    I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT46MR for your 2021 Toyota Venza Hybrid. This receiver will fit all trim levels of your Venza. It has a 2" receiver tube that is capable of supporting up to 525lbs of tongue weight which is plenty for a bike rack with your E bike. When you do not have the bike rack placed into your receiver you will still be able to use the automatic lift gate by performing the kick action just to the side of the receiver tube. I recommend...

Not only does the Curt hitch involve an easier installation than the competitor Draw-Tite Hitch # DT46MR, it also comes with a superior gloss coating over the base powder coat to provide you with greater protection against rust and corrosion.

  • Easiest to Install Trailer Hitch & Wiring Harness For 2022 Toyota Venza
    Let's go ahead and start with the hitch, and the easiest install on your 2022 Toyota Venza is the hitch from Curt. The reason for that is you only need to bolt the hitch on, whereas the Draw-Tite # DT46MR for your Venza requires lowering the exhaust, an added step that can be somewhat difficult. So for the hitch, I definitely recommend the Curt, which is the following part number: - Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C89UR Then for the wiring harness, while I wouldn't classify any as "easy"...

  • Best Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2023 Toyota Venza For Bike Rack
    Absolutely, and the best trailer hitch receiver for your 2023 Toyota Venza is going to be either the Curt or etrailer hitch. I mention both because they are the same hitch, just with different finishes - the Curt has a glossy finish while the etrailer has a matte black finish. The reason to go with one of these is because they have the best ground and bumper clearance, keeping your rack higher up off the ground and away from your Venza.
