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 technicians at etrailer perform hitch installations on a daily basis, making them a valuable resource for do-it-yourselfers. The one-on-one, personal service you'll receive comes straight from an expert in the towing and automotive field. We've installed it, we've wired it and we've towed with it, so whatever your question, we can answer it.

This fully welded, corrosion-resistant vehicle trailer hitch receiver is perfect for your light-duty towing needs. Draw-Tite's Tested Tough guarantee ensures that this hitch exceeds industry standards. Drawbar sold separately.


I had some difficulty installing the hitch on my 2007 CR-V, with the muffler being in the way. The installation video was very helpful. The bolts seemed a little short, so I first installed them without the washers and tightened them somewhat. Then I replaced them one at a time and added the washer. The end result was great. (I am over 70 years old and I installed it all by myself.) I am very pleased with the hitch and would definitely buy it again. I also installed the wiring harness C55106 with the hitch. I use the hitch to pull a boat trailer with a 14 foot aluminum boat to go fishing. Both the hitch and the wiring work great.

After one year I still like the hitch. The hitch works great and I would definitely buy it again.
Paul C - 05/11/2021


Installed this on my 2008 CRV. The install was no walk in the park but the videos helped tremendously. Don't skimp on the WD40 when unhooking the tailpipe hanger! Anyway, got it done and it works beautifully. I use it with a bike carrier and to tow a small tent camper actually designed to be towed by a motorcycle.


Being from south Louisiana, we love to gofishing for speckled trout and redfish. When my brother's boat broke I lost my way to go fishing. I found a used boat for sale and now it's time to go fishing whenever the mood strikes. Enter the trailer hitch from for my 2010 Honda CR-V. It took about 30 minutes early one Saturday morning to install the hitch and about 40 minutes to install the wiring harness. I did all of this by myself and it would take 2 people maybe 10 minutes to install the hitch. The hitch is solid and the wiring harness is plenty long to get to the trailer wiring. had the best price and easy links to the installation videos. My next hitch will come from

2011 HondaCR-V

Installed this on a 2011 CRV. While others say this was a 20 minute deal, guess they are way faster than I. I had to raise the back wheels enough to set them on 6x6 blocks.. I made the required notch with a 5/16" drill bit. It needs to be at the 3 or 9 o clock position with 12 o clock facing forward. It is a bit award doing the bolts on the sides, but using the rear center bolt to hold things, it worked out just fine. e-trailer even sent me a nice piece of cardboard to lay on while installing the hitch.

2010 Honda Insight

This trailer hitch was shipped by eTrailer with an expedited shipment at their own cost (thank you) and arrived packaged well to prevent sipping damage. The hitch fit perfectly on my 2010 Honda CRV and all hardware was adequate to secure it to the frame of the vehicle. I viewed the video that was a link from their website to gain valuable insight for easy installation. It was a little difficult holding the hitch up in the air while trying to thread a nut onto a bolt that had no back pressure, but I was finally able to get it done. Took about 1.5 hours to complete.

No issues with it. Thanks.
Bob D - 10/20/2018

2007 HondaCR-V

Great product and installed as described and functions as wanted.


Easy order, quick delivery, ease of ins tallation.


This hitch is just what I need to carry the bikes on the CR-V being toad behind our motorhome. Priced right, easy installation. I can't say enough about the service from E-trailer. I called customer service with a question about the products I wanted, received the answers and ordered, easy! I am a repeat customer, I am a happy customer!


My experience in purchasing
a hitch for a bike rack from etrailer was much better than ever expected. First, the price was significantly lower than one offered by a major retail company. The employee at etrailer with whom I dealt was not only pleasant and helpful, but she expedited the shipping date by two days. When the hitch was installed on our vehicle the total savings including labor was almost $100.00. Can't beat that!


Cutting a slot in the chassis hole to accommodate the mounting bolt backing plate was not as easy as the video shows. If you are a regular joe without a car lift and shop tools, it is harder. I used a rotary tool with a cutting blade to cut the notch. Otherwise the installation went well. I bought this model since I was only going to use it for a bicycle rack. I think the class 3 hitch would actually be easier to install since it uses nuts already welded into the frame. The hitch itself was well made. Very happy with it.


Fantastic dealing with this website. The product was as pictured and installed easily. I would recommend etrailer to others if they need this type of product. Great communications and the product arrived in great condition.

Still loving it.
Nita A - 07/22/2015

2011 HondaCR-V

This hitch has quality control issues. The center tab which bolts to the vehicle was welded on incorrectly to allow the bolt to pass through. I ended up not being able to install it. I called etrailer and they shipped out another hitch. Now I have to wait and see if this one has the same problem. If it does I will switch to Curtis.


The hitch works well. It does take a bit of work to get the bolts in place but if you follow the directions and don't mind getting your hands dirty you can do it

2009 HondaCR-V

Awesome Trailer Hitch. Assembled on my 2009 Honda CRV just as the video and instructions illustrated. A little advice though; 1) utilize a helper if available. Just to have an extra hand does wonders. I did mine all by myself in my garage on a sunny afternoon a couple of weeks ago. I probably would of saved about 1/2 hour if I had a helper. 2) Go to Advanced Auto Parts or other type of parts store and buy the assorted pack of panel clips/buttons. Reason being is that when removing the panel in the right rear of the CRV the panel buttons may break. They are only cheap plastic. No big deal to replace. Other than that, I am ecstatic that I saved over $200.00 doing this job myself. It took me approximately 21/2 hours by myself. One cold beer, a nice dominican cigar, what more can you ask for. Calling around locally for parts and labor, they wanted just over $400.00 plus tax to do this job. THANK YOU E-TRAILER! for showing us how to do this and providing the equipment at a very fair price. I will always keep you guys in mind. God Bless. Randy Hastings in NY.

2009 HondaCR-V

Product packaged very well. Perfect fit. Directions and online videos were very good.


Great little hitch. The install on a 2008 Honda CRV was easy because of the instructions and the install video. The total install time was about an hour, including the setup and installation of a Swagman rack. Also, I installed the additional Swagman anti-wobble hitch pin. The entire setup was fun to install and gets the job done.


Easy to install with the right tools. Took about an hour. Use a torque wrench.


2d purchase. Excellent customer service and support. Products are as described and excellent quality. Installation instructions are easy to read and company provide several internet videos which give you step by step directions. Highly recommend

2009 HondaCR-V

This trailer hitch fits my 2009 Honda CRV perfectly. I had it installed at a local auto shop and they had no issues doing so.

It arrived quickly and with no issues.


Great price & easiest order I've ever done online to date & ..
.I already received the hitch!!

I'm going to be spreading the news to all my friends!


Good looking quality hitch!

2010 HondaCR-V

This trailer hitch is really truly excellent!!! I could not be more satisfied with my purchase, but more importantly, I was extremely satisfied with the level of customer support shown when my hitch was not shipped within the time frame that I was given, I got a lot of
follow up information. It was really no big deal to wait an extra day or 2 for it to arrive, but I liked the communication provided. The bike rack I have works impeccably with this hitch, it does not rattle, shake or move, and I am very happy. I have not had a chance to use the electrical setup I also purchased, but will get to soon.
Sorry I don't have any pictures to share, but I will recommend your website to anyone who has a need to purchase a trailer hitch or other items in the future
Thanks so much


Good lightweight hitch. I purchased mine so that I could use a 1-1/4" hitch mounted bike rack and occasionally tow a light utility trailer. The etrailer installation kit is complete and makes installation easy. The center mounting point using the Honda tow hook and metal spacers is a bit klugey, but it seems to work. However, I've noticed on my hitch that the bolt through the center mount has loosened after use (twice now), so I'd recommend using blue LocTite on that bolt in particular.


I used a Dremel with a tungsten carbide cutter to cut the required notches in the frame. Worked well except for the metal shavings which turned into tiny metal splinters. I suggest maximum protective equipment, including eye protection, respirator, gloves, and some coveralls.

One significant flaw in the installation (aside from the difficulty of initial placement by a single person) is the proper securing of the bolt through the tow hook. Upon tightening of this bolt, the rectangular washer would rotate to a position that allowed the bolt to start bending and pulling the washer through the tow hook. It seems necessary to use a strong shim to keep the washer in place while torquing the bolt to specifications.

Despite the installation difficulties, the hitch has performed well.


A little tough installing without a helper but it can be done.

  • What Parts are Included with Hitch 24792 and What 1-7/8 Inch Ball Will Fit
    The Draw-Tite, part # 24792, is a 1-1/4 inch hitch opening. You will need draw bar part # 3593 and must only be used in the rise position on your CR-V. The draw bar has a 3/4 inch shank diameter so you could use part # 19256 as your ball. Using these parts, your maximum tongue weight is 200 pounds and maximum trailer weight is 2,000 pounds. If your CR-V has lower ratings, you must abide by those. I have included a link to the instructions for the hitch and draw bar.

  • Class III Hitch Recommendation and Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2008 Honda CRV Carrying 4 Bikes
    For carrying 4 bikes you will need to use at least a Class II hitch. Since there are only Class I and Class III hitches available for your 2008 Honda CR-V I would recommend you get a Class III hitch like the Draw Tite Hitch # 75547. This hitch will allow you to have greater flexibility for picking future hitch accessories like cargo carriers due to the larger amount of products made to work on 2 inch hitches. I attached installation instructions and an installation video for this product...

It is the most popular hitch for the 2015 Honda CR-V. If you do not have a bike rack in mind already I can make some recommendations. I recommend the Kuat Transfer 3 # KU24FR.

Check the owners manual on your CR-V because I believe that the towing capacity of the vehicle is 1,500 pounds and it is important that you stay under that.
