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.

e trailer has nailed it as always. Shipped quickly, fit my vehicle perfectly, installation instruction video is spot-on and super helpful. I installed this by myself in about 2 hours start to finish and I’m super happy with how it turned out. Can’t speak to the longevity of the product yet but the initial experience has been great.



The receiver has held up flawlessly. I’ve used it to haul bikes for long road trips and never given a second thought to the security of the receiver.

@Garrett Glad to hear your hitch is working well for you!


Fitment was such that where it mounted next to spare wheel well made getting spare out very difficult because it squeezed the tire. End of hitch was so far beyond the bumper an extension had to be used to prevent bike carrier hitting bumper.
And it was sent to my old address even after updating the information by phone.
Worst experience I've had with these people, I used to purchase all of my hitches from etrailer.


Amazing quality. This is my second trailer hitch from etrailer and they are exceptional. My first one was a smooth installation, but this one wasn't nearly as easy. You definitely have to cut down those factory bolts so be prepared to do that. Also, the included short hardware didn't fit. They were a little too short despite giving the holes a thorough cleaning. I've seen some people say they did the install themselves in 45 minutes. They are clearly luckier than I am. I did it myself in about 2 hours and with some audibles.


Good quality product. Simple and fairly easy installation. I needed another person to help hold it up. Perfect fitment. So far actually used only once, but overall very pleased.

Franklin B.


It worked great the one time we used it. Paint is still good.

Pontiac Trans Sport Van

Purchase and delivery was excellent. Trailer itself is high quality. Have used it several times since purchased to transport two road bikes, and is very secure.

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe

Easy install. Great looking hitch


the install was so easy fit perfect and looked great used it one time then sold the SUV to buy a truck and installed a new hitch for the truck I purchased it same manufacture and etrailer sold both the hitch and wire harness to me again both company are excellent, the only draw back is the install goes so quick that you will finish to early and haft to go back and finish the honey do list


I have a 2014 HYUNDAI SANTA FE GLS which has dual exhaust and technically wasn't covered in the installation video or vehicle fit list. I didnt realize this till I began to install it and once I did I figured what the heck let me try. Ill say this is does fit and bolted right on once I got it in place. The only issue I ran across was the hitch hitting the driver side exhaust cover mounted on the bumper, but all I had to do was remove 2 10mm bolts to get it loose, slide the hitch in place and insert one bolt to hold it and once everything was torqued I went back got the 2 10mm bolts to thread back in. All in all its a solid hitch that one person can install if your willing to get a little dirty. I recommend it for the build quality, ease of installation, and great pricing.

This hitch is not showing that it is a confirmed fit for the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS, it is only a fit for the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. This could be the cause of the exhaust cover being in the way.


My 2nd trailer hitch from etrailer, best prices around. Total plug n play hitch, no need to weld or modify. Pleased with the product!

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe

Fits correctly! Have not tried pulling anything with it yet though!



This product still works after a year. We’ve been able to haul a trailer with our lawn mower attached perfectly fine.


Hitch came fast and packaged well. Watched a YouTube video and instalation was easy. Highly recommend.



Hitch is still perfect after almost 2 years. Install was really easy after watching a video. Highly recomend.


Probably the best customer service I have ever received. My order shipped same day and I received an w-mail stating that. I received my tracking number at that time as well. I also got a confirmation e-mail when it was delivered.

I love their videos also. It’s a great help in deciding which hitch to get AND how to mount it.


It is an etrailer product, so not much more to say. Hitch is very well built and heavy duty. The finishing looks great in the vehicle, and the round tube is a perfect fit.

Installation took 1hr:20min, and that is because I did not have one of the tools required to get the bumper pin out of the way, so had to improvise.

etrailer video was paramount for me to complete the installation. I recommend you watch the video prior to installing yours.

I am ready to tow and take our bikes for a ride. Thank you etrailer, for putting money back in my pocket!

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

Shipping was delayed a few days but that was no big deal. Quality seems to be good as hitch is very heavy duty. Hitch fit perfectly !! Would buy again


This hitch looks great. Very low profile which nothing attached. I don’t have any specialized tools and very basic vehicle mechanical skills and I was down with installation in about an hour. Got this for adding a 60x24 cargo carrier on a 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport for some extra room for camping trips. Thank you etrailer for an amazing product!

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

First, let me say I'm very impressed with the whole delivery process. First I received automated notice of the order, typical, then I received an email with the tracking number when it shipped, somewhat typical. However, on the tracking email they supplied two "How To" video links that were specific for my personal vehicle, wow! I had a clear and concise instructional before the part even arrived! And, I didn't have to go find it on my own. Because of this great addition I had an idea of how much time, which tools and the general requirements for the task. I have to admit, it added to the excitement because my concern about what I may need to do was eliminated. In fact, I installed my unit the day it arrived.

In my personal case, the steel was slightly sprung, probably from the welding. It took a little fight and some bumping with a mallet to get things going together. Once I had a few turns on every bolt I just took my time and did about 3 turns to each in a pattern. This was to ensure the bolts were somewhat evenly pulling everything to its final position. The part is a great fit for my Santa Fe. I will definitely recommend and shop with E-Trailer in the future. If you are considering this trailer hitch, I definitely recommend it.


Great quality, perfect fit and very easy installation. I am 70 years old and completed the install in just about an hour in my driveway.


Easy installation and easy to use


Shipping was right on time. Very reliable service.

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

It definitely fits a Hyundai Santa Fe sport 2.0T ultimate I put it on myself with the help of my dad holding it! Works great with my bike rack

2014 Hyundai Santa Fe

Very well made and attractively priced, no need to pay more for the name brand. Like the matte finish. Excellent communication and tracking. This is my second e trailer hitch. Good stuff!


Great alternative to the dealer and other shops. Hitch was just what I needed.

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

Installed it by myself with the help of a few buckets to hold it up while I got bolts started. Had to pound on it a little to get it aligned properly. I just OK alignment, but could have be the vehicle as much as the hitch. I found that putting in the upper long carriage bolts first was smart. The video I watched recommended putting in the lower bolts first. Looks good and appears to by sturdy and well made.


Easy fit after two bolts are trimmed off. Installed without lifting car. Release last two exhaust support. Enough space to pass unit and catch one bolt. Raise opposite side and bolt up. Replace plastic panels on both sides with new push pins.


This thing is fantastic. The hardware is all heavy duty and the instructions were extremely clear.

    The shipping weight of the Trailer Hitch Receiver # E98841 is 34-lbs for standard ground shipment within the USA.

This may add a couple of pounds to the shipping weight but...

  • Why Does Trailer Hitch for 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Have Higher Capacities than Vehicle
    This is a really good question, but basically the hitch is overbuilt for the vehicle it fits. The main thing to keep in mind is that any towing setup is only as strong as it's weakest component. So if your hitch has a higher capacity than the vehicle (or vice versa) you are always limited by the whatever the lowest rated component is as that's what would fail first. The reason the hitch has higher towing capacities is because the hitch was designed to fit your vehicle and to be as strong...

    Yes, the tongue weight rating of a hitch will be the same whether you're towing a trailer or using it for an accessory like hauling a motorcycle. You'll be limited by your least rated component so since the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98841 you have is rated for 900 lbs tongue weight but from what I could find in the online owner's manual, your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is only rated for towing up to 2,000 lbs which means Hyundai is okay with up to 200 lbs of tongue weight.

  • Does Installation of etrailer Hitch on 2023 Hyundai Santa Fe Require Trimming and Lowering Exhaust
    Looking at the installation instructions, as well as the video, trimming will not be required for the installation of the # e28AR. It appears as though the removal of panels only applies to the Kia Sorento, not your 2023 Santa Fe. However, you will have to lower the exhaust to be able to access the weld nuts. I have attached the installation video below, along with the written instructions for your reference.

  • 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...

    I wish we had suspension enhancement that fit your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe, but at this time we don't have anything that fits. I do have a really great option though that's actually better for trailer towing than suspension enhancement. Instead I would recommend you get a weight distribution system.
