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.

Fantastic, installed exactly as advertised. The hard part was getting the hitch up to the bolts by myself. A floor jack with an attached jig, to hold it in place while lifting, was the fix.

2020 Ford Escape

Wouldn't recommend this hitch for 2020 Hybrid Escape unless someone has the time and willingness to shoehorn it into place. The hitch won't fit without removing the two rear fascia brackets (not in the installation guide). I modified the brackets to keep the fascia from flopping around. Rest of install went ok. BTW, it was not necessary to enlarge the frame holes, and I trimmed just the part of the heat shield and reattached the rest of it after folding it back in place.

    For your 2021 Ford Escape Hybrid I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C23FR which is a confirmed fit for your vehicle.
