Rugged, Matte Black Finish

The sturdy steel construction is protected with a matte black finish for added durability. This unique powder coating gives etrailer hitches a carbide-like appearance and a rugged look that sets them apart from traditional glossy hitches. In addition to being rust and corrosion resistant, the tough matte coating hides dirt, scuffs, and dings better than a glossy finish.

I purchased this product exactly one year ago, (received prompted email from etrailer asking me to leave a review of my experience after 1 year). I do remember the purchase being seamless and the installation video online was extremely helpful for me. I installed the trailer hitch myself in under an hour with a cordless impact gun. So far....NO RUST! I live in an area where we received nearly 200 inches of snow last year and they pound the roads with salt. I hate the look of rusted parts and was waiting to see what would happen to this receiver. Everything looks good.. even the areas where the chains hook to for safety. The e-coat paint hasn't rubbed off yet... Also, I wanted a low profile hitch that didn't stick out from the bumper a lot. This one satisfied that need nicely. Looks great on the back of the car. Some receives stick out a couple inches and I don't like that look. This one integrates nicely. Hopefully someone finds this review helpful. Thanks 535987

This model worked just fine for my 2015 Toyota Highlander. -Online video much more helpful than written instructions included with the package (you could reference 2016 or 2015 videos at etrailer website). -Really helpful to have more than 1 pair of hands when bolting to the frame. I had myself and a small jack to raise the whole thing. - For the trimming of underbody plastic panel, a Dremel saw works really well. I ignored the video instructions and cutout a much smaller piece from the panel (after placing over installed receiver) and it worked just fine. - Overall, installation is straight forward. About 1 1/2hrs for me after getting my tools positioned. 727691

great product. i thought the package for shipping was a bit sloppy. the hitch was in box loosely with other ordered items. i would've preferred that the hitch be packed separate from the other items. luckily none of the other items were damaged from the weight of the hitch. the box was beaten up pretty good by ups. otherwise great! easy install. perfect fit for 2015 highlander. trimming plastic shroud was only cumbersome part of install. 535771

Installed with a friend on our 2016 highlander, didn’t have to put it up on a lift, plenty of room to work underneath. Instructions were decent and there are good videos on this website as well. Use it for hauling bikes with a Thule hitch rack. No complaints. 536001

Easy install by myself which took about 1 and 1/2 hours which included the wiring. I used a foot and a leg to hold up the drivers side while I got the bolts started…. took to Advil before I started at 65 you get more aches and pains laying on the floor under a car/suv….LOLPerfect product and perfect fit….my towing fuse was marked 20 like another poster had stated.Customer service is excellent at E-trail and always willing to take the extra step in customer service….Thanks team! 535730

From start to finish, this is a great product and a great buying experience. I had shopped this product around on the internet, and found that the videos, documents, and customer service from etrailer was where I would spend my money. I was not disappointed. I ordered this item on a Tuesday, received status updates from George at etrailer via email, UPS showed up on Friday evening (7:19pm according the the tracker on the site), and had finished cleaning up my tools and the garage floor by 9pm. The video on the site was for my exact vehicle, everything fit as prescribed, and while I expected that I'd have to use your video for the install, the printed instructions were all that I needed. For the do-it-yourselfer's out there, it is mentioned in the video that you don't have to loosen the exhaust to install the hitch. That is correct. I laid a piece of cardboard on my garage floor and went to work. I thought about putting the rear wheels on my car ramps, but there is ample room to work without it. You will need two people to guide the hitch in from behind so that you can sneak over the rear exhaust if you choose not to loosen it from the hangar, but my wife helped me do that, and then I set her side of the hitch on a tall bucket until I got a pair of bolts installed on my side. The most time consuming thing is trimming the plastic underbody pieces, but there's no way around that. I used my dremel as they showed in the video. I wouldn't want to try that with a utility knife, as that is some tough plastic, but that's a Toyota thing, not an etrailer thing. I even received a follow up from George this morning (Saturday), letting me know that his system showed that the delivery was made last night. You may find this item for a few bucks cheaper elsewhere, but when I buy a speciality item like this, I need to be sure that there is someone to help me. Thanks! 535768

2019 has a brace bolted on the right rear frame rail forward mounting bolt location, just in front of the muffler. Remove the M12 bolt and discard the brace and bolt before mounting the hitch. Otherwise the instructions were accurate, approximately 30 minute solo install on the ground using a motorcycle jack for support. 593116

2014 Toyota Highlander

I got the trailer hitch & wiring kit yesterday and installed both on my 2014 Highlander in about 4 hours. It was fairly straightforward, but a couple of things should be noted. The fuse box under the hood requires a 30 amp fuse for the trailer, you supplied a 10 amp however the converter has a 10 amp fuse. I had a 30 amp fuse so I just installed it in the empty slot for the trailer circuit. Another thing is that if you wish to continue to use the existing tow hook bracket the bolts supplied are not long enough but I simply discarded the bracket as the trailer hitch itself can be used for this purpose. I also wish there was a more convenient way to route the 4-conductor flat plug for the trailer outside instead of just laying it over the rear deck and closing it. It would be helpful to have two people to lift and hold the hitch while bolting it to the body but I did it myself by using wood blocks on one side while putting the bolts in on the other side. Other than that, the hitch looks great, and is heavy enough for my utility trailer and perhaps greater loads. I'd buy it again. 535769

I priced trailer receiving hitches all over town! All prices installed was close to $300. I found on etrailer. Com a part number e 98844 for $134 with a great video of how to install it. It arrived this afternoon and I installed it on my 2018 Highlander I did need one extra person to hold it up while I started the boat. It was a piece of cake the whole job to approximately 1 hour packaging was excellent no rips tears , dings etc. This hitch was purchased a long with a swagger bicycle rack from etrailer.com also. it was a perfect fit perfect match perfect experience all the way around! 609455

I am pleased with the product and found the installation video more useful than the instructions. I believe the instructions have the left under panel diagram inverted and I did not need to make the cut towards the front of the vehicle. A utility knife worked well to make the cuts for the left panel but the passenger side panel was thick and required a dremel. The instructions call for torquing 12mm bolts when they are really 19mm bolts.I attempted to install the hitch myself by making a center-of-the car oriented ramp to slide the hitch up into place. I used an old jack under the lower portion to raise everything to optimum height. It required too many hands so I ended up having my wife raise and lower the jack as i slid everything into place. Everything fit. 535942

Ordered this product based upon a recommendation from a neighbor who also has a Highlander. We installed it yesterday and the video and other reviews were spot on. The prep takes more time then the actual hanging of the trailer hitch (ie the removing of the plastic coverings and cutting them, etc.). It definitely was a 2 person job to help hold and install. I am more than pleased with this product and can not wait to attach out bike rack to it for a ride. Also and most importantly, I can not stay enough about etrailer.com. They follow up with emails and want to make sure you are all set with the product. I highly recommend their site. 535981

I installed an E-trailer hitch on my 2018 Toyota Highlander yesterday. This makes the third E-trailer hitch I've installed. I am very pleased with the installation process. The instructions are very clear and the videos are a great help. I did them all in my driveway with a little help from my wife. I highly recommend E-trailer. I appreciate the quick shipment and the on-line support resources. 542010

The hitch is great and installation holes were perfect. However, the box was about 75% ripped open on one end upon delivery and there were no instructions. I was anticipating that a small amount of "trimming" might be required, but it turned out to be a large amount of trimming & fitting to make the plastic shrouds fit around the hitch. Had I known this I probably would still have ordered this hitch, but some instructions would have been nice! 641464

2017 Toyota Highlander

The trailor hitch receiver for my 2017 Toyota Highlander is nicer than I expected. I looked at a few other brands on line, and decided on this one because I know of this company as reputable from past purchase. Also the finish on this model has a dull powder black finish which makes it blend in with the fascia under the rear bumper. I installed it in about an hour by myself using a sturdy platform and a couple jack stands to hold it in place while installing the six bolts. Having a helper would probably make the job easier. It's very sturdy and looks great. The primary reason for this purchase was to attach a bicycle carrier, and possibly a utility trailer. The only thing that could be improved is the packaging of the product. The cardboard was ripped open due to the awkward shape of the hitch being loose in the box. As a result, there is a small scratch on the metal that's not noticeable. I would recommend this product... 5 Stars !!! 551134

This hitch fit really well. The fabrication looks very well done. I like the textured matte black finish better than a glossy look. Not quite as high as the factory accessory, though very close, and it does not protrude at all. Access to the hitch and cotter pin is a bit narrow as a result though. The tailpipe is in the way of installation a little bit, but you can push it out of the way enough to get it up there and tightened up. The instructions include images on how to trim the under-body trim. Depending what you have for tools, removing the panel clips doing a clean job of trimming this might take the most time. With the trim panels covering up so much, and the various nooks and crannies on the receiver weldment, I made liberal use of corrosion inhibitor (such as Fluid Film, LPS #3 etc). Being a unibody installation, it clearly transmits the clunks from the hitch to the cabin. I've used a 2" drop hitch on our fishing boat and utility trailers, and a 4 in drop flipped up for my enclosed 2 place snowmobile trailer. As usual, etrailer shipped it quick, the price was clearly competitive and they had a complete solution with a large choice of harnesses. The box was in a bit of rough shape by the time UPS kicked it to my porch....a few marks in the paint as a result that I touched up with a little Rustoleum. Given the holes in the box, I was glad nothing was missing....the hardware bag was tapped to the receiver. 720260

2019 Toyota Highlander

Installed on a 2019 Toyota Highlander. Well made, fit perfect after doing some minor trimming of the cheap plastic crap Toyota installs on these new vehicles. Took about 35 minutes with help from my son to hold it up so I could get the bolts started. I did remove the spare tire and unbolted the rear exhaust hanger for more working room but everything went back in place afterwards. I did have to cut the edges of a metal bracket on the passenger side frame because the hitch use that same hole and mounts over the bracket. I plan to use the hitch to mount a cargo rack for camping supplies. I am pleased with this product. 677580

The hitch was delivered in 2 days. I installed it in an hour. I like that it's a tubular bar instead of the usual block of metal. Also liked the fact that it's bolt on using existing fittings instead of drilling new holes or welding. You have the choice of removing or modifying the plastic cover on the driver side so it fits. Only had to cut out about a 1 inch wide strip from the plastic to modify it so still able to use the cover as intended. The other nice fitment is that it only protrudes past the bumper by about an inch tops. So walking into it not really an issue. Have no intention of towing anything but wanted a nice hitch for a lateral bike rack instead of hanging them on the vehicle door. This hitch will work nicely while looking good. I highly recommend the custom hitch. 621866

This hitch is bombproof. After one year it is still super solid. It is low profile and looks great. I’ve pulled several things with it but mostly use it for my bike rack and cargo tray. It was a lot of work to install but the instructions were detailed and accurate for my vehicle. I would definitely buy it again. 854288

Let's say a pandemic sweeps the world and you find yourself thinking, "You know...I'm going to drive to my remote vacation destination that happens to be about 3 U.S. states away, instead of fly!" Then, your wife wants to take the 2015 Highlander instead of the pick-up truck and you think, "How are we going to fit all our stuff in that, plus the entire family, and the animals?". This solution worked out very well. The weekend before vacation, I followed the great video instructions and installed this fairly easily, with a little help from a skateboard "wingman" as you'll see in the picture. (If it helps your decision, I'm a computer nerd by trade, not an auto mechanic, although I'm not afraid to try mechanical stuff.) The bolts and holes lined up perfectly. I highly recommend this hitch receiver. (I'm going to add a review for the rack you see in the picture also.) 845575

  • Trailer Hitch for 2019 Toyota Highlander LE Plus With Full Size Spare Tire on Aluminum Rim
    While we do offer outstanding trailer hitches for your 2019 Toyota Highlander LE Plus, the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch # E98844 will not work because the width of the aluminum rim on your full-size spare is simply too wide to allow this hitch to fit.
