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.

We bought this for our 2012 Prius V. The install was a piece of cake after viewing the accompanying video. The most crucial part, IMO, is making sure you have WD40 to help remove one of the muffler braces. After installed, our 1.25” bike rack fit perfectly and was very stable. Too bad large hitch receivers aren’t recommended for the Prius V, otherwise we would have gone for a 2” one.

Works great. The install video appears to envision the underbody splash guards having been removed, but it’s not too hard to work around. The previous reviewers who recommended re-using the Toyota bolts to hold the hitch in place and then one by one replace with the ones from the trailer hitch are genius. The Toyota ones self center, the Draw-Tite ones do not. I too had to minimally trim the muffler heat shield with tin snips for this to fit, but it was easy. Probably 90-120 min total. If the splash guards didnt exist and the draw-tite bolts self centered this couls have been 15-30 min. Hitch was used to transport a bike from Central Illinois to Southern New Mexico and was sturdy and worry-free the whole way.

Rock solid and pretty easy install with the right tools. Had to modify muffler shield a little bit on the 2014 prius V because the hitch was not going to seat up flush against the frame of the car. Nothing a nice pair of sheers couldnt handle. Delivery was super fast. Also the contact from customer service and response to a question I had was impressive. Zero issues with the entire process and I am impressed with the hitch.

I installed this hitch on a 2015 Prius, the existing bolts came out fairly easily. I did not move the muffler hanger as recommended, I just put the wrench in and pushed the muffler hanger to the side. I backed the car onto ramps to get some more height which helped. I also used a large plastic bucket to hold up the hitch while I screwed it on; I'd still recommend having someone to assist holding the hitch to keep it steady. Two more tips, I'd recommend stuffing a rag up in the left area of the plastic panel before starting to unscrew/screw the bolts so that you don't lose any in the panel. One bolt fell into the panel and I wasted 15 minutes trying to feel around for it, scrapping up my hand. Also the instructions say to screw the hitch on the left side first, I'd recommend the right side as it's much easier to hand tighten the screws there first without a wrench. Then once you have one partially in, move to the left side. Keep in mind the right side requires that the hitch be sandwiched between the frame and the muffler hanger so getting that situated first seems like the best place to start.

We have a 2014 PriusV and needed a trailer hitch for towing a 15 foot sailboat we recently bought. Problem was, Toyota recommends not towing with the PriusV. An Internet search revealed there were a few companies that had light weight hitches available specifically designed for the Prius models. After reading reviews, we decided on etrailers.com due to hitch design, hitch accessories (i.e., draw bar and wiring), price, free shipping, and supposedly easy installation in 30 minutes. I called etrailer.com to ask a question and the agent told me that if I ordered the hitch package I needed at the time of my call (Monday) I would have the parts in hand by Friday so I placed my order. Parts arrived as expected. What a pleasant surprise, product quality surpassed my expectations! Being a technical person I found all the directions remarkably well written with excellent supporting drawings and photos. I installed the hitch by myself in roughly 15 minutes. Installing the wiring took a little more time due more disassembly of panels to channel wiring as well as some simple assembly needed on wiring. The entire process took less than an hour and looks professionally installed. I'm very happy with the overall experience and highly recommend etrailer.com for all your hitch needs.

Very pleased with product. Speciality trailer hitch for 2014 PriusV. I continue to recommend etrailer.com to others as opportunity presents itself. Thank you for the customer followup. There are very many companies out there that should the etrailer.com customer service policy.

My son-in-law and I installed this hitch on a 2012 Toyota Prius V. The video for the install on a Prius is accurate for a Prius V with the exception that a Prius V does not have cosmetic cowling on the underbody that has to be removed. The install was straightforward and we had the hitch on in about 45 minutes. Other than the receiver on the hitch, you can't see the hitch without bending down and looking under the bumper. I personally like the aesthetics. We're using the hitch with the Swagman XTC-2 bike carrier and the combination is ideal for transporting our two bicycles. The fit between the hitch and bike carrier is tight and the Swagman allows us to drop the middle bar down for access to open the rear hatch of the vehicle when the bikes are not in the carrier but leaving the bike carrier attached. We bought the Prius V so we could carry passengers, gear and two bicycles on trips. The draw-tite hitch and Swagman XTC-2 give us the flexibility to do that. Here's some pictures to demonstrate as I've had a difficult time finding photos on the web showing a Prius V with hitch and bicycle carrier installed. I have a cover on the hitch receiver in some photos, sorry I took the photos at night with a flash, but hey, I did the review! Good luck. Oh, by the way, like others have written, E Trailer was on top of things from the get go and I received numerous e-mails about the status of my order and follow-up after my receipt. Only took three business days between the date of my order and delivery to my home. The hitch and bike carrier were boxed and then inserted into another heavy duty shipping box. There were a few small tears in the outer box (assume from rough handling by the delivery carrier) but the contents were not damaged in any way. I would definitely order again from etrailer.com.

The unit arrived promptly, was well packed, and was a snap to install, but I wouldn't attempt this without a vehicle lift. We had to bend the sheet metal that's above the exhaust just a little bit so the bracket holes would align. Otherwise, a perfect fit. Done in 20 minutes.

Hitch arrived on time , and was very well constructed. I had watched the video of the installation and was impressed with the ease of insulation and strength of the hitch . I am using it for a bike rack to haul our bikes to the beach . I am 75 years young and cannot impress enough the Quality of this product.

I installed this Draw-Tite trailer hitch on our 2012 Prius to carry bicycles with our Thule 2-bike carrier. Installation took about 45 minutes. The installation video on the etrailer.com website was a big help. I used a stack of scrap lumber to hold the hitch in place while I bolted it in place. As others have noted, I bent about a quarter inch of the heat shield so the hitch mated flat against the frame. The shield is soft metal so this is no trouble at all. For some reason it took me longer than I would have expected to get the bolts started in the holes on the passenger side. I think this was a combination of my gloved hand and the tight space around the muffler. The driver's side bolts found their way much easier. I used the socket and extension to seat them and that's probably what I should have done on the passenger side, too, instead of trying to do it with my hand in that cramped space. I saw in another review that someone that is 6 feet tall and 170 lbs. had difficulty installing this hitch. I, too, am 6 feet tall and 170 lbs. and did not have trouble getting under the vehicle. The tools needed were exactly as stated (although you may find pliers helpful to bend the heat shield). I would recommend this hitch to others considering it for their similar Prius model.

This hitch was made to fit the vehicle easily. Etrailor provides product support with installation and questions and answers from support staff. I would recommend using duct tape to keep bolt/socket from falling in the under body protection panel. The appearance is outstanding and I believe most novices could install. The hitch appears to be very durable. I will use with pro hitch carrier to haul action packer and ice chest.

2013 Toyota Prius

My order for the Draw-Tite Receiver Hitch (for 2013 Toyota Prius) was delivered in good condition, and in just a few days. Installation was relatively easy following the enclosed instructions, e-trailer's video, and a number of reviews. The two best tips I gleaned from other reviews about installation were: 1.) Don't bother to remove the muffler from the hanger, rather just "tweak" it over to R & R the bolts. (I jammed a block of wood between the undercarriage and the muffler to keep it "tweaked" out of the way.) 2.) Re-install the factory bolts to temporarily mount the hitch. Because the factory bolts are tapered, it greatly eases alignment (don't snug any of them up, just run them in far enough to ensure support of the hitch.) Replace them one at a time with the (19 mm head) bolts provided with the hitch. The purpose for getting a receiver hitch was to get a proper bike rack to haul our two bicycles, so I ordered the Swagman XTC-2 2-Bike Platform Rack. It, too, arrived in good condition and in only a few days. One of the drop arm holes does not align as it should, but I am not of a mind to return it and wait for a replacement because of this minor defect (who knows what defect(s) the next one might have.) I just drove the pin home with a rubber mallet. In time, and some lube, I suspect I will be able to install the pin by hand. I test drove the car with the bikes on the rack for only a few miles (bags were still on the bike racks, as you can see from the photo,) but am pleased with the set-up so far. I anticipate enjoying this arrangement much more than our old "strap-on" bike rack.

I installed this on my 2012 Prius V model 3. Very easy install with a couple of notes. Car was too low for my jack stands so I had to Macgyver a jig (upside down metal bucket and a brick) to hold up the hitch while I maneuvered the muffler end of the hitch. I also found it useful to use a basin wrench to tighten the new bolts to the hitch/muffler mount. This is the only part of the job that took a few extra minutes. I also bought the adapter to use with a 2" receiver and that fit perfectly. Everything was of nice craftsmanship and all holes aligned perfectly. The only bad experience I had was that the hitch was packaged poorly and arrived with a ripped box, no safety packing, and a hitch hanging out, scraped because of the shipping. On the Prius V I didn't encounter the "cowl" that was mentioned in the video (where they warn you to be careful not to lose the bolt there when initially taking things apart) so if you're installing on a V it is super easy!

by:
2012 Toyota Prius

etrailer did a fine job as expected. Hitch came very well packed with additional cardboard holding it securely in the box. They also taped the bike rack hitch lock I ordered with it securely to the hitch so it wouldn't fly around in the box. The DrawTite hitch was an easy 20 minute install with 4 bolts. The Prius V doesn't have the protective bottom cover like the normal Prius does which makes it much easier to access the existing bolts. And since there were 4 existing bolts in place in the frame of my 2012 Prius V (for the muffler hanger and tow hook), I didn't have to deal with any rusty in-frame nuts. Hitch fit perfectly and seems plenty sturdy. I did have to do a little flat filing to the inside of the hitch (see photo) where the large hole on one side had a burr that kept the bike rack tongue from sliding in easily.



- 24847
by:
2013 Toyota Prius

The product arrived about three days early and in excellent condition. The video was a big help and also a number of the customer reviews helped, particularly a suggestion by One reviewer to use the manufacturer's bolts on one side of a bracket to help with the alignment process. The manufacturers bolts are tapered which makes them much much easier to thread correctly. Would be an enormous help if the manufacturer of the trailer hitch did the same. Would give five stars if the bolts that came in the package were tapered. Plus, I have yet to use the hitch to haul our bicycles, which I will be doing next month. Plan on traveling several thousand miles to various biking trails around the country. Any problems I'll modify my review.

This was the easiest hitch I have ever installed. It fit perfect and the whole job was done in 15 minutes. The service from the extremely fast shipping to all the information on your site made for a easy job. I called my Toyota dealer to see if they could install it for me and they wanted to charge me $150.00 to remove and install 4 bolts. Like I said I did the job myself in 15 minutes saving $150.00 installation fee from them. I would recommend this hitch to everyone looking for a hitch to carry a mobility scooter or wheelchair. Thanks again for the excellent service.

The hitch is an excellent fit and the quality of the is outstanding. I did the installation myself in the driveway. Since the Prius is low to the ground it would be easier if the vehicle is raised, but it is not necessary. I tried using 1/2" drive sockets but they don't fit the tight driver side bolts, so I used 3/8" drive set. I had a little problem with the passenger side as you will see in the photo. The heat shield for the muffler was causing me to not seat the hitch properly. Once I realized this and bent the shield out of the way a little everything when together easily. When I need a hitch for my truck I will use e-trailer again. Your instructions don't mention reinstalling the tow point so I didn't. Is this not possible?

That is correct, the tie-down hook cannot be reinstalled. Check Step 1 again in the instructions.

Exactly what we needed to attach a two bicycle rack and bicycles. We took them on an 800 mile road trip - on a 2012 Prius. This equipment is top quality and comes with install instructions. Be aware you will need a special tool to ensure the correct amount of pressure is applied when bolting this down to your vehicle chassis. I will buy again for my next vehicle.

Just make sure you have a torque wrench and know how to use it. And don’t drop the bolts in the lining like I did. Very easy to do - took me about an hour using the video provided as my guide. Had my car in wheel ramps.

    The 2 trailer hitch receivers that will fit your 2011 Toyota Prius are the Curt # C11276 and the Draw-Tite # 24847.

I prefer it over the Curt, part # C11276, becuase it doesn't require you use a stabilization strap, part # 18050, if you're carrying accessories like a bike rack or cargo carrier. Other than that and how the two hitches look they're basically the same. There's...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2015 Toyota Prius
    The hitches that are available for your 2015 Toyota Prius are Class l hitches. Class l hitches are limited to a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening due to the lower towing and tongue weight capacity for the vehicles. I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 24847. No drilling is required when installing this hitch. If you plan on doing some light towing I recommend a ball mount like part # 3593. This ball mount has a 2-1/8 inch rise or 2-3/4 inch drop. for a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball...

  • Recommended Hitch and Towing Accessories for 2010 Toyota Prius
    I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class I hitch, part # 24847. The hitch does not include a ball mount. And you will need the appropriate trailer ball, # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch ball or # 19258 for a 2 inch ball. You'll also need a trailer wiring harness, # 118505. The hitch has a 2000 lb towing/200 lb tongue weight capacity, but that capacity might be limited by the capacity of the vehicle if it is lower. I examined an online copy of the owners manual, and was unable to find a towing capacity...

  • Can 2008 Prius and 2014 Prius V Accept the Same Trailer Hitch Receivers
    Although we do offer several choices in Class I trailer hitch receivers for both the 2008 and 2014 model years of the Toyota Prius, the hitches for one model year are not compatible with the other. The two model years are part of different generations of the vehicle and so have differing frame structures. I have provided two links for you; one is for hitches for the 2014 Prius V and the other for hitches for the 2008 Prius. A Class I hitch is considered a light-duty hitch primarily...

  • Are There Advantages to Hidden Trailer Hitch for 2017 Toyota Prius
    The biggest advantage the trailer hitch receivers with a hidden crosstube have is the aesthetic, as they are otherwise very similar. A lot of people don't like having the crosstube visible so they choose the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11473 or Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24966; they want the cleaner look on their Prius, like in the accompanying photo of the Curt hitch on a '17 Prius. The advantage to the visible crosstube hitch, the Draw-Tite # 24847, is limited to the easier...

  • Will a Trailer Hitch Scrape on a 2010 Toyota Prius Going Up a Driveway
    Though I cannot give you an exact yes or no answer as there are too many variable involved, I can tell you that a trailer hitch like the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24847 which is a fit for your 2010 Toyota Prius has a receiver tube that will sit about 11-1/2" off the ground.
