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.

Very good quality hitch. Fast shipping. Installed in less than one hour by myself, and was installed with no lift. Great instructions!

The hitch has been used heavily for one year and after going through winters salt and sand it still looks brand new. Quality hitch!



by:

This is a high quality trailer hitch that utilizes factoring mounting points and is low profile. It is incredible we’ll made, entirely powder coated to prevent rust/corrosion and in total took me less than an hour to install by myself! Just for curiousity I called the dealership to see what they would quote me to install a factory trailer hitch on our vehicle; it was $1600 plus tax! I saved over $1400 by doing this myself and it was one of the easier car projects I’ve ever done. Watch the video they have on [online] if you have any issues, but anyone with basic mechanical skills can complete this job and save you a ton of money. Very impressed with this hitch and this company/product, thank you!

I found it really easy. Definitely need a second set of hands. The dealership trys to BS you and charge ridiculous amout of money selling you a tow package (V6 XLE highlanders come stock with tow package. All you need is a hitch and cable.



by:
2023 Toyota Highlander

Fits perfectly in threaded holes already in frame provided by Toyota. Snugs exactly under bumper and looks great. Easy install I would recommend putting an extra plastic connector to hold passenger side rear cover underneath since the removal of the metal bracket leaves the cover loose. I did this easily. But your directions should recommend it at least as an option and include one plastic connector - not necessary but makes the cover not wiggle. I've included a photo where I put two plastic connectors in, but need only one. This photo I included is the cover on passenger side underneath showing the two extra connectors (you do need to drill the holes) also that is the Hitch bolt nearest the rear.



by:

Fits and looks great. I did have to grind one hole about a paper thickness bigger as the bolts didn’t exactly line up. Maybe just a slight bend on the hitch. I tried for hours different ways and finally just ground one hole on the drivers side ever so slightly… fit great. Should have done that first. But very pleased.

Just installed today on a 2024 Highlander. Everything installed smoothly. I am very pleased with the design and overall appearance. I use it primarily to haul my bike to a local bike trail.
Just one item you might consider looking into. The diagram of the plastic box that came with the screws indicating the trimming to fit around the installed hitch looked like a mirror image of the actual box when I held the actual box it in my hand. Where to cut was clear when I looked at the youtube video so no big issues. Anyways and excellent product. I will definitely recommend to others.

The good: This hitch is solid and fits my 2020 Highlander perfectly. I'm completely pleased with, and recommend, the product.

The delivery and install had some challenges as follows, but nothing that was bad enough to make me regret my purchase.
1) On delivery, the box was shredded. I inspected the product, which is sturdy metal and will be almost completely under the vehicle. It was not damaged in any way so I accepted the delivery. I honestly think the issue was that this heavy and awkward shaped part was simply encased in a large cardboard box that allowed too much movement.
2) The installation video, (which BTW is super helpful) said "torque down bolts as specified". There was no mention of required torque in any of the attached paperwork or website description that I could find. I watched the video for 3 different year models of Highlander and they all were the same on this. 3) the picture included in the instructions for cutting the underbody trim was not accurate for my vehicle at all. Maybe it's a picture for a different year model Highlander? I did a check fit, trimmed a little, fit again, trimmed some more... good in the end.

I loaded up my two heavy ebikes on the rack and drove a few hundred miles this past weekend. Worked great.

Been an etrailer customer for many years. This hitch unit is well made and heavy duty. It was very easy to install - took less than 1 hour doing it by myself using ramps and a floor jack. The unit fit perfectly to the Toyota body structure. A minor trimming modification was needed to the plastic drivers side underbody panel. Very satisfied with hitch assembly and the easy installation.

High quality heavy duty product still performing without any negative issues.



by:
2021 Toyota Highlander

Great hitch, BUT, a couple issues. 1) As another reviewer said, the top bolt opening on the passenger side of the hitch had to be bored out with a dremel. The slot was about 4mm too short (meaning the passenger side bolt was in and the hitch was slid all the way towards the passenger side-the bolt opening is a horizontal slot that look plenty wide, but it’s wide in the opposite direction needed). I still had to expand the opening in order to get it to fit.
2) DO NOT follow the cut out guide provided in the instructions. You will cut out way too much material. Instead, look at one of the other reviewers posts who provided a more accurate/smaller cutout template.

Install took longer bc of the modifications. But other than that, it’s straightforward.



by:

The hitch fit perfect and looks good since you only see a small section below the bumper.

Still working great. We only use it to hold a bike carrier but still works well and best looking one available. Five stars all the way.

Hitch installed easily. Though I do not recommend such, I was able to install by myself, with the help of straps suspending the hitch in place.



by:
2023 Ford Edge

All three things arrived quickly but your packaging process need improvement and could be hazardous to package handlers between here and there. The box used was bulging at both ends and the hitch was not anchored inside the box. This caused it to breakout on one end with a gapping hole and the wiring and tester box could have easily been lost during shipment. Packing could be fixed with a small reinforced cardboard anchor for the hitch receiver to sit in the center of the box and use two heavy duty tie raps to anchor receiver and reinforced cardboard anchor to box center edge. Have not installed hitch yet but did install wiring easily but it doesn’t work and assume the converter is either missing or inoperative. Getting no where with Toyota so far and will probably need etrailer technical assistance. Could not upload packaging pictures by email, but should be able to by text

I was able to install the hitch by myself, using 2 floor jacks and 2 jack stands.
It took a while, but I was very deliberate about the process.
The hitch fit perfectly.
The wiring harness was easy to install as well.
I was very satisfied with my experience



by:

Hitch went right in, You do however have to remove Exhaust Boot to slip in on top of exhaust. Definitely a 2 person job. Installed in about an hour.



by:

Hitch arrived two days early. I’m an 80 year old man and was able to install the hitch with the help of a floor jack and two jack stands in less than an hour. Hitch fit Perfect and looks great. Wiring was simple plug and play.

I’m a DIYer. I liked the fact my Toyota Highlander came with pre-drilled and tapped holes in the frame and a connector for a wiring harness. I thought “how easy this is going to be!” (I installed a hitch before on a Subaru and had to drill the holes myself). The video on this website is spot-on! The matte black finish complemented the black bumper. Everything was going well until we tried to raise the hitch and secure it with a couple of screws. The problem was the two forward most holes didn’t line up, I could only get 5 screws completely inserted. I called the etrailer customer service number to confirm I was sent the correct hitch (thank goodness they have saturday hours). The technician suggested the frame may be bowed inward and to try spreading them somehow. I finally decided on using an aluminum pipe I had to wedge in between the ends. I had to remove the spare tire and drop the muffler out of the way to accomplish this. It worked and the rest of the installation went as I had hoped. If I didn’t have the luxury of a garage and some proper tools I may have resorted to sending this hitch back and hoped the next one fit better. What should have been a one hour job turned into four hours. The hitch is exactly what I need, the finish is perfect and the price of it and the wiring harness is unbeatable. The videos are great and they even shipped it the same Saturday I ordered it! The fit on the other hand caused some stress and an excellent 5-star rating.

Received order in timely fashion. Your etrailer website very helpful with pictures and YouTube video. Hitch is on my 2022 Highlander. Looks great. One improvement to your assembly regarding underbody panel. I removed much less material to relieve interference with hitch body. Your video shows too much plastic cut away weakening integrity of body panel.
Regards.

Hitch is used for securing my kayak to top roof rack. Utility strap kayak rear to hitch. Kayak front is secured with front mounted straps. Secure and works great!



by:
2023 Toyota Highlander

Perfect fit for my Highlander Hybrid 2023, although it seems I got a returned item, none of the couple of cosmetic blemishes were any concern, it was in perfect condition and clearly had not been used before.
Helpful items for buyers: 1) rear gate kick sensor continues to work same after installation, it was tricky before and it is tricky after. 2) cutout instructions for the plastic trim is way bigger than needed, I am attaching my own cutout area which worked perfectly for me. Hope this helps others



by:

From ordering to install this entire experience was great. The delivery was as faster than expected. The detailed install instructions were seemless.



by:

East instructions. Easy installation. Great design. 10/10 would recommend.
The installation video is perfect.

Thanks Etrailer!



by:

Great looking Receiver! Thanks for the informative videos. I'm 66 years old and installed it by myself in the driveway in about 1 hour. I used my large floor jack and a smaller one. It went up as advertised. Thanks for another great receiver.



by:

so far it has been a great hitch it fit the vehicle perfect and was easy to install



by:

This was installed on a 2021 Highlander XSE model. It did fit my XSE but does overlap my spare tire just a bit. I think the overlap with the spare tire is small enough that I would still be able to drop the spare with the cable without much trouble. Raising a new spare would take some adjustment to fit behind the tow hitch. The holes all aligned fine after some need to flex the tow hitch from shipping. I provided a picture of how it fits over the exhaust unique to the XSE. In order to get the hitch receiver installed we had to remove the two rubber mounts that hold up the muffler at the end of the tail pipe and further up the connecting pipe. I used the shipping box of the hitch receiver to rest the muffler so it wouldn't scratch and that worked well.

Solid product. Love the matte color and the final result. Instructions are easy to follow with all the tools is easy to put in. Cut some parts of the plastic cover for easy return. Need a helping friend and a jack supporting the hitch while screwing underneath, its pretty heavy. For now will be using for bike rack but also for camp trailer in the future.



by:

We love the trailer hitch etrailer installed for us. They were very helpful finding the right fit for us and our new vehicle. It is very sturdy and works great for our bike racks.
