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. 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.

Had it installed in 30 mins or so. Looks good, almost like it came factory. The hardest part was fishing the bolts thru the frame. The price was 25% of what VW would if charged me. I haven’t towed anything yet but I’m pretty happy with the appearance and installation. 482344

Easy to install. About 30-45 minutes without a lift. Instructional videos for your automobile type makes install a snap. Recommend something to prop up your hitch if you do not have a lift.(is. Jack stands ..etc) . I have a 2019 VW atlas 893442

2019 Volkswagen Atlas

After reading reviews, and doing a little research, I decided to get the Draw-Tite hitch for my wife's 2019 VW Atlas. E-trailer shipped it quickly, and I had the hitch in a couple of days. After watching the installation video on the E-trailer site, I installed the hitch by myself in about 30-40 minutes. If I had someone to help me, I could have installed it faster. I would recommend a second pair of strong hands, but I was able to utilize a floor jack to get the job done. Installation was straight forward, and the hitch fits the Atlas perfectly! Thanks to E-trailer for a great match to my vehicle, quality installation videos, and the best price around!!! 836808

well built by drawtite. seems all their products I've purchased have same quality. not looking forward to "fishing" the carriage bolts and retainer brackets inside the narrow frame rails. may consider just welding them. 825931

So happy to have found this product and this company. U-haul strung me around for weeks before claiming there was no such thing and your only option is dealership. VW dealership wanted $1200 just for this part. The hitch was a little heavy for me to install myself but my mechanic was happy to install for $50. He mentioned that the hitch I had purchased was the sturdiest and most well built trailer hitch he had seen. It also fits perfectly under the bumper and there was no need to cut bumper which uhaul had claimed they would have to do. Shipping to Boston was quick and I am now happily lugging 4 bikes around on the back of my Atlas. Thanks! Any one looking to add a bike rack trailer hitch to a 2018 VW Atlas, this is what you’re looking for. 822328

Product arrived in great condition. This hitch fit our 2018 VW Altas perfectly and required no bumper trimming, drilling, scraping, or anything. With the help of a floor jack to hold the weight of the hitch, I was able to get this installed in less than 45min. It literally is only a 4 bolt installation. The majority of my time was spent trying to fish the wire through the vehicle frame. It wasn't difficult, I was just working in a low light environment and I have eye sight issues so everything is a bit harder for me than most! Very pleased and will definitely purchase again from eTrailer for equipment needs. 658337

Great product, I'm very pleased with the purchase and fits perfectly in my Atlas. I didn't install myself but had a boddy shop to do the work. I'm not great as handyman but it does'nt seem too easy to install due to the weight and difficult access. 608530

Great customer service from etrailer. Ordered a hitch for my 2018 Atlas, when it arrived, the box had taken a minor beating and it had number of dings in the paint finish. Spoke with Julie at etrailer - sent me a prepaid return label and shipped out a replacement hitch that same day. I received it 4 days later. Kudos to Julie and etrailer for great customer service !!! 556792

Easy to install, however only 3 'lead' wire pull leaders were provided in the kit for snaking bolts through box section, requiring careful reuse for the 4th bolt. Kit should include 4 wire pull leaders. 496281

Ordered on Tuesday, got it on Saturday. Installed by myself with the help of a floor jack and the install was complete in 30 minutes. After enlarging the chassis hole to fit the carriage bolt, the hardest part was fishing the bolt into their locations. Once that was in, the rest of the install went 1 - 2 -3. My only complaint is the the reach of the hitch is a bit short. It is about 5" from the edge of the bumper to the hitch 444942

  • Comparing Curt 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver to Draw-Tite 2 Inch Receiver for 2019 VW Atlas
    For your 2019 VW Atlas, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13366 will be about 1-1/2 inches recessed behind your bumper and will drop 8.44 inches from the frame mount to the bottom of the receiver tube according to my tech contact at Curt. The Draw-Tite # 76176 will have the receiver tube extend about 6-1/2 inches from the rear mounting hole and will drop 8.8 inches from the frame mount to the bottom of the receiver tube according to my tech contract at Draw-Tite.

  • Comparing Curt and Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitches for 2019 VW Atlas
    You are definitely right that the Draw-Tite # 76176 and Curt # C13366 Class III trailer hitches for your 2019 VW Atlas are extremely similar, however I do recommend the Draw-Tite model because unlike the Curt, it is rated for use with a weight distribution system. If you plan on towing a trailer that's more than half of the Atlas' weight (your Atlas weighs around 4,200 pounds) a weight distribution system is recommended to prevent rear sag on the vehicle and improve your overall towing...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2019 VW Atlas
    The best trailer hitch available for your 2019 VW Atlas is the Draw-Tite Class III # 76176 because it offers the highest weight capacities and is the only option that's rated for use with a weight distribution system (if you ever choose to add one to your towing setup). It's going to line right up to existing holes in the VW's frame for a simple bolt-on (no-drill) installation and it features a nice hidden crosstube design. This means only the 2" receiver is going to be visible from...

  • Difference Between Curt and Draw-Tite Class III Hitches Available for 2020 Volkswagen Atlas
    Both the Curt # C13366 and the Draw-Tite # 76176 have been designed to be mostly concealed behind the bumper once installed. The only portion of the hitch that will be visible from the rear is the receiver tube and the safety chain loops. Both hitches have the same exact weight capacities and an identical installation procedure. The Curt model will provide an extra half inch of ground clearance at 14 inches, if that parameter is important to you. How to choose between the two? Both are...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring For 2019 Volkswagen Atlas
    I recommend Draw-Tite Hitch Receiver part # 76176 which is a concealed cross tube hitch for the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas. The only part of the hitch that is visible once installed is the receiver. It also sits up a bit higher compared to the other options of hitches for better ground clearance. I have attached a photo for your reference. For the wiring, I recommend Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector part # 118754 which is designed to plug into the...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Towing Equipment for 2019 Volkswagen Atlas
    The Draw-Tite Class III reciever hitch you'd looked at # 76176 and the Curt Class III, part # C13366 are pretty much identical. The design is very similar, they have the same capacity, they install in the same manner and are similarly priced. The Curt hitch is assembled in the USA, while the Draw-Tite is manufactured in Mexico, which is the only reason I might choose the one over the other. If you'll be using the hitch for towing, you'll need a trailer wiring harness like # C56383 and...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Volkswagen Atlas
    For a 2 inch hitch for your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas the Draw Tite hitch part # 76176 is a confirmed fit and would be a great choice for your 2 inch hitch bike rack. This fits right up under the rear bumper too so ground clearance won't be too affected. The picture I attached shows this hitch installed. Access hole to feed the install hardware into the frame of your vehicle will need to be enlarged though. That's the most in-depth portion of the hitch install. The install is pretty basic...

  • Recommandation for the Best Hitch on the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas
    I recommend using the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" part # 76176. This is a very easy hitch to install and will serve you very well for years to come. It offers a 900 lb. tongue weight rating and a 6000 lb. gross trailer weight rating. Be sure to check your owners manual for the towing rating of your Atlas and exceed that. If wiring is needed i would go with Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector part # 118754....

  • Does Trailer Hitch for 2018 Volkswagen Atlas R Series Require Bumper Modification

    Starting with the trailer hitch for your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Receiver Hitch # 76176. This is a great Class III hitch that will provide a 2 inch receiver opening and a 6,000 pound towing capacity, although I also recommend checking the capacity of the vehicle itself as listed in the owner's manual. I have attached the installation details for you to check out. Then for wiring, I recommend the Tekonsha Upgraded Heavy Duty ModuLite Circuit...

  • Most Hidden and Best Ground Clearance Hitch for 2019 Volkswagen Atlas
    Based on what you described wanting the best hitch solution we have for your 2019 Volkswagen Atlas is the EcoHitch part # 306-X7362 as it is the least visible option and offers best ground clearance. Instead of having the hitch tube under the rear bumper this comes out through the lower fascia section to give you much better ground clearance and also a better overall look. The first picture I attached shows the EcoHitch and the second shows the Draw Tite # 76176.

    The Curt Class III Receiver Hitch part # C13366 and Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Receiver Hitch part # 76176 are both excellent options for a 2019 Volkswagen Atlas. I recommend the Curt option because the bracing for the receiver tube is a bit less bulky which essentially just translates to a sleeker overall look once installed. Furthermore, the Curt option has a much more durable powder coated finish when compared to the Draw-Tite option. In regards to installation, this is pretty...

  • Can Trunk-Mounted Bike Racks Allow Trunk to Open When on?
    It is not a dumb question at all but the answer may disappoint you because no trunk-mounted bike rack, including the Saris Bones # SA805BL will allow you to open the trunk of your VW Atlas. What you will need is a trailer hitch, and the Draw-Tite # 76176 is the best option. It will allow you to mount a bike rack which will tilt down with the bikes loaded, and I recommend the Swagman G10 # S64682 because it has a long shank that will give you the best opportunity to open the hatch on...

  • Why isn't 2019 Volkswagen Atlas Rated for Weight Distribution If Hitch that Fits It Is
    Weight distribution systems put a bit more torque on the hitch and frame of the vehicle due to the spring bars pulling up pretty hard on the head of the system. Not every vehicle/hitch is going to be heavy duty enough to allow this and not potentially damage anything. We have trailer hitches for your 2019 Volkswagen Atlas that are rated for weight distribution like the Draw Tite part # 76176 but if the manufacturer of the vehicle says you can't use a WD system we cannot recommend it either....

  • Can Weight Distribution or Sway Control be Used on 2019 Volkswagen Atlas
    The owner's manual for a 2019 Volkswagen Atlas does say not to use a "weight distributing or load equalizing hitch" and this is strictly a Volkswagen stance. It also says things like "when you are not towing, remove the trailer hitch" (which, frankly, is absurd) and to remove the ball mount to reduce the risk of injury to pedestrians (which would be the first ball mount related injury I can think of). This likely has more to do with Volkswagen and their reputation for safety; weight distribution...

    For your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas SE the hitch I suggest for your bike transport application is the Draw-Tite 2-inch Class III model # 76176. This hitch offers a substantial 900-lb tongue weight rating, making it easily capable of handling even the highest-capacity and heaviest 2-inch hitch bike racks out there.
