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.

Awesome hitch at a good price! Easy installation, great instructions and hardware. Fits tight, looks OEM! Thanks for great product!


The trailer box arrived damaged but the trailer hitch receiver looked fine. When installing the hitch, it would not fit with several attempts. I contacted etrailer for support and received an email instruction to realign the hitch. After realignment of hitch, it fit just fine and the hitch looked awesome. Thanks etrailer for the quick response on the solution. The hitch was mis-aligned due to shipping. The hitch is very strong with an awesome price from etrailer. I have purchased another hitch from etrailer and it was also great quality. Thanks again (Quinn F. at etrailer) for providing quick support to solve my problem. Great value with free shipping. (2011 Toyota Sienna)


My husband and I were able to install it with little difficulty. Because of the weight of the hitch it took a few different tries to screw it into place. I would suggest using tire jacks to hold it in place while you get it bolted. We’ve had it for over a year and it’s been perfect.





Hitch Receiver works as it should and it's not too difficult to install.

2014 Toyota Sienna

I purchased 2 trailer hitches (one for a 2014 Toyota Sienna and one for a Hyundai Tuscan) for our Thule Bicycle Rack and both hitches are working great! Thanks!


This is awesome hitch receiver easy to install.and one thing I like to this item
my after market rear lip has no modified or cut.


This hitch, as with prior etrailer hitches was easy to install with the how-to videos. I keep coming back to etrailer.


The installation video was wrong you also have to cut the plastic for the center of the hitch on my 2020 sienna limited edition. Very frustrating hope this helps the next person that install one.

Toyota Sienna

I am fairly mechanical and can savvy instructions well enough, so I read over them a few times prior to installing. I installed this by myself, with no other hands helping me - if this is you, READ ON!

I jacked up the back of the van and used two jack stands so that I could actually breathe. That made all the difference (don’t forget your parking brake!).

There is a piece of the body that is plastic - you will have to remove this and cut a hole so that the hitch mount will actuallly fit. I took the time to do this and it made the install so much easier. I had a set of tin snips and they worked great for this. Although, pay attention to the different fittings that hold this piece of plastic in place. There are three different kinds: Phillips screw, LARGE Phillips screws, and little pop out fittings. So you take this thing off and put it back on before you ever get to any of the actual installation.

There are covers for the welded frame nuts on the Sienna. They are basically stickers. I jabbed a hole in them with a screw driver and pulled them apart to expose the nut. Since they are covered, mine were clean as a whistle and I didn’t have to blow them out or use a wire brush.

Instructions for this item are great, measurements for the piece you HAVE to cut are totally correct, except I would make them bigger so you can fit your ratchet extension in.

I DID NOT lower the exhaust. I actually used it as a prop on the passenger side as I finger tightened a bolt on the driver side (remember I did this by myself). Then I finger tightened a couple of bolts on the exhaust (passenger) side. After finger tightening all of the bolts, I took my time tightening each bolt twice. I don’t have a torque wrench, so I don’t know how tight they are. I tend to have a tight grip, so I am sure they are fine, but I’ll check them again in a week or so. NOTE, tightening the bolts on the exhaust side requires you to pull the exhaust to the side so you can get your ratchet in position. I used the ratchet extension as leverage and this helped. If you could lower the exhaust, it might be easier, but that seemed like a needless pain.

We are taking our first trip with it this weekend - carrying three mountain bikes. I’ll check the bolts when we get there and when we get back.

All in all, this hitch mount is a beast. Very heavy duty, and will handle anything our Vinnie-Man will dish out :)

Thanks for the review! I highly recommend making sure those bolts are correctly torqued. Most national chain auto parts stores will loan tools for free if you leave a deposit, thatd be a great way to borrow a torque wrench.

Toyota Sienna

This thing works great and continues to work for me. Although I just traded that vehicle for another Toyota Sienna and I will soon be purchasing another one of these.


I am very impressed! The company, product, pricing and my self "DIY", installation was all very good and I would do it again if I ever had the need, Thanks E-Trailer!

2006 Toyota Sienna

This Hitch receiver was easy to install on our 2006 Toyota Sienna, the one bolt located under the muffler needs a little extra time during the install, but it's straightforward. We have 5 place bike rack that installs on the rack and it's been rock-stable, even over 500 mile trips. My only complaint is with the ground clearance (it's a Toyota issue) with the receiver installed you lose a lot on the departure angle, so be prepared to scrape a few times and watch for speed bumps, pulling out of driveways, etc. e-trailer's product though is top notch, well-built and has been great over our year of ownership.

2011 Toyota Sienna

As always great service and excellent installation videos


First-class build quality. The welds are solid and the cuts are crisp.

The only reason for 4/5 stars is that the instructions need significant work. The photos are small and dark, the text is terse, and the difficulty is significantly under-rated.

I am a skilled handyman with all required tools. This project took me about two and a half hours, and a significant part of that time was spent scrutinizing the sparse instructions.

The price was also reasonable. I'm a repeat customer, and I would definitely buy again.

Four images attached. Use as you like.
xxx07.jpg: Splash guard cutout around left side
xxx32.jpg: Close up of long transverse cut across splash guard for guards that have long ridge that interferes with hitch.
xxx02.jpg: Close up of *threaded* splash guard holder. Indent is very large phillips-like cross. Size is roughly that of a quarter.

2009 Toyota Sienna

Fast shipping. Easy install. Appears to be quality product.


Product is reasonably well made. Accessories are poorly made and packaged. The paper box came in almost completely dismantled and both mounting screws and pin alignment stop were missing, and the receiver was lightly scratched. However the customer service did immediately shipped out the replacement mounting accessories and alignment stop within days, and credited me $xx, for touchup paint from local [hardware store]. The touchup paint was a nice touchup. Thanks!

2008 Toyota Sienna

One year later and still getting great use out of it! We have a 2008 Toyota Sienna. We have hauled a small trailer with the bikes, kayaks, soil for the garden, appliances, furniture, etc etc. Its been a great to be able to help our neighbors and church family.


Very easy install. Took 2 of us about 45 minutes from start to finish. Flanges on hitch where bent a little bit from shipping but we were able to straighten them out.
Hitch scrapes sometimes when i leave my driveway or on certain Speed Bumps but overall a great well built Hitch.


Had a little trouble cleaning out mounting bolt threads, but the van has 286K miles on it. Still very pleased.

Toyota Sienna

Four of the six mounting holes matched the threaded holes on the Toyota Sienna frame. The fifth *barely* did, requiring some force. The sixth, not even close. Didn't feel like getting under there with a Dremel to grind the hitch's opening wider, even though I don't like leaving a fastener missing (got a damn heavy class-III hitch cuz I do care about weight limits and tolerances). If the thing had actually fit the car, I'd be quite pleased with it.


Love the product, very well made. Very beefy and sturdy, it’s heavy and solid. It was very easy to install on my dorkmobile and the hardware provided is all that you need. I would recommend this thing to everyone that has a 05 Toyota Sienna and wants a hitch on it!


More details in the installation video would be nice

2006 Toyota Sienna

The product quality was solid — it’s what I think of when I buy “made in USA”. The instructions that came with it were helpful for install.


I did the install alone, I’d recommend having another set of hands, it would make install a lot easier
However, it was a perfect fit with easy it follow instructions


The wrong bolt package was sent with the original order. I told them what size bolt fit the van, was told they’d send the correct bolt package out. 7days later I received 1 single solitary bolt the exact same wrong size. It takes 6 correct size bolts to attach the hitch. Its not even worth the aggravation to call them back I’ll source it myself.

I am sorry it has been such an ordeal to get you the correct hardware. I am sending this back to our customer service team and they will be in touch with you soon.

  • How to Tell is etrailer Hitch for 2006 Toyota Sienna Came with M10 or M12 Bolts
    I'd be happy to help you out! The 10.9 number you're seeing on the head of the bolt has to do with the strength of the bolt not necessarily the size of the bolt. I'm not seeing a part number for the etrailer Trailer Hitch # e98837 so I recommend measuring the threads to determine what size you have. An M10 bolt will have threads measuring 10 mm in diameter while an M12 bolt will have threads measuring 12 mm in diameter. If yours ends up being 10 mm let me know so I can have our customer...

  • Will the Trailer Hitch Off a 2000 Toyota Sienna Fit a 2008 Toyota Sienna
    The trailer hitch I recommend for a 2008 Toyota Sienna is the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98837 which offers an easy bolt-on install. There was a redesign in 2003 so the trailer hitch from a 2000 will not fit a 2008. Therefore, you will need to purchase a new hitch but you can sell the old one to help offset some of the cost.

  • Will Trailer Hitch Receiver Fit All Wheel Drive 2016 Toyota Sienna
    Having all-wheel drive will not affect the fit or the installation of the Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98837 on a 2016 Toyota Sienna. The installation will be the same for all models of '16 Sienna and the same is true for similar hitches that fit this vehicle, including the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75237.

    Yes, in addition to a trailer hitch you will also need to install a wiring harness on your 2013 Toyota Sienna to power the trailer's signal lights during travel.

The 2 inch hitch itself has a 3,500 pound towing weight capacity and a 350 pound tongue weight limit....

    You are correct that both the # e98853 and the # e98837 will both fit your 2018 Toyota Sienna L. There are a few noteworthy differences. One difference is that with the # e98853 the crosstube will be concealed behind the bumper. The crosstube on the # e98837 will be visible under the bumper once installed. The # e98853 has a higher tongue weight rating at 525 lbs (350 for the # e98837). The # e98853 cannot be used with a weight distribution hitch, whereas the # e98837 is rated for use...

    The heavy-duty radiator for the 2019 Toyota Sienna is standard for those models with the factory towing prep package.

If you have it, then you have the heavy-duty radiator and cooling fans. If you're looking for a hitch to use with that prep package, I recommend the etrailer Class III Hidden Tube,...

  • Does The 2010 Toyota Sienna Have Different Threads When Mounting etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver?
    The etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98837 which fits your 2010 Toyota Sienna uses six M12 - 1.25 x 40 hex bolts to attach the receiver to the frame. This same hitch is confirmed to fit the 2004-2020 model years. It is possible the threaded holes on your frame could have some dirt or corrosion built up inside the threads which is preventing the installation. You can try using a Brush # 814092 with some penetrating oil to clean out the threads, otherwise you may need to get a tap to chase...

  • Recommended 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2009 Toyota Sienna For Best Ground Clearance
    For your 2009 Toyota Sienna, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13105 you referenced. From the lowest point of the hitch receiver you will have about 8-1/2 inches of ground clearance. The inside top of the receiver itself will be at 11-1/2 inches. This is identical to the etrailer option # e98837 and about 1 inch higher than the Draw-Tite # 75237 option. The SE and CE are trim models and don't impact the fit of the hitch receiver.

  • What Does Tongue Weight Capacity of etrailer Hitch for 2017 Toyota Sienna Mean
    The etrailer hitch # e98837 that you referenced has a 350 lb tongue weight rating when towing a trailer not using a weight distribution system but when you do use a weight distribution system the tongue weight rating would go up to 500 lbs. This is because the WD system distributes some of the trailer's tongue weight up to the front axle thus allowing the hitch to carry more weight. For a WD system rated for your setup the Reese Pro Bar part # RE34FR would work well.
