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.

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! 770222

Product really is bolt-on, instructions were easy to follow. Instructions were easy to follow and they suggest using a WD-40 to help with removing the rubber hangers on the 2014 Santa Fe; definitely helps. I didn't have the specialty tool so I used channel locks to remove the hangers.Once all three hangers were removed I had to balance the muffler on my knee as I didn't trust the one or two remaining hangers. Suggest a jack stand to help support. As for mounting the actual bracket, if you have a socket wrench set with a number of different sizes it's a matter of having someone help you bold one side in place while you treat the bolts or balancing the other side on your knee. Needed to remove the driver's side plastic piece but did not need to do so on the passenger's side - save yourself some time.From start to finish, less than an hour, about an hour and 15 to clean up the tools used. This is not a difficult job and anyone with some hand tool savvy should be able to knock this out with general ease. 535337

It bolted right up to my 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe. The video they posted was extremely helpful and accurate. I did it by myself, and lowering the exhaust a little to get it in was no problem. It works great and it looks perfectly correct on the vehicle! 874050

Got this hitch to be able to add a bike rack. Didn’t like the idea of having a rack that hooked on with straps, especially 3 bikes now and another 2 later. The product came really quick and please watch installation video before installing. Saves a lot of time and you learn a few tricks while watching video. The hardest party was the wiring. Direction were easy, but recommend having 2 people for the job. Helps a lot. 848577

Easy to install. I did it in 30 mins. Looking at it on the car, it’s overkill. Class 2 would have been fine. That’s not saying anything negative about the product or service. I really wish there was 2 of the small bolt “bars” for carriage bolts. The passenger side seems more secure because that’s where the one bar goes. On the driver side there was some scary/cracking sounds when tightening the through frame carriage bolts. All in all I don’t ever see my car or me destroying the hitch, if for some reason I need another. I will definitely buy the exact same product. 819434

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! 818577

Actually submitted my review for this hitch on the wireing harness review page. Robert was very helpful in helping me to complete my order.

  • Most Hidden Trailer Hitch to Fit a 2014 Kia Sorento EX
    Hidden Hitch is a brand of hitches that's owned by the same company that owns Draw-Tite. The Hidden Hitch line has actually been discontinued and in most cases there is a Draw-Tite hitch replacement that is exactly the same. There is a Draw-Tite hitch that fits your 2014 Kia Sorento EX, it's part # 75772, and although it isn't exactly like the etrailer.com hitch you looked at, part # E98841, they do install and fit in basically the same way.

  • Will the etrailer Hitch e98841 Fit on a 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe H-Trac
    Yes. The etrailer # e98841 also fits the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe H-Trac, which is simply Hyundai's AWD system and won't effect the fit of the hitch. This is a custom fit hitch, so there is no drilling into the frame required for installation. If you're going to be towing, you'll also need a wiring harness, ball mount and hitch ball to complete your towing setup. For the wiring I recommend using the Tekonsha T-One # 118784 because the Tekonsha powered converters are extremely reliable,...

    In order to tow a trailer with a 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport you'll need to start with a trailer hitch, the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98841 is what I recommend. Then, you can add a trailer wiring harness and for this I recommend the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness part # C56184. Finally, you will need a ball mount and hitch ball for which I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit for 2" Hitches part # 989900. These are all easy to install, plug-in-play/bolt-on options...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Ultimate
    The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Ultimate is the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98841 because it has a matte black finish that matches better with your vehicle plus it is more durable than the glossy black finish on the other options. This is a Class III trailer hitch with a 2" receiver so it will be compatible with more accessories than a 1-1/4" receiver. If you're planning on doing some towing then you'll also need wiring and a ball mount kit....

    I was able to reach out to Curt directly and found their Class III trailer hitch # C13153 designed for the SE and Limited models will also fit the XL. The etrailer.com Class III Trailer Hitch # E98841 is designed for the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport model so the Curt # C13153 is my recommendation. Included is a video to help with installation.

  • Does etrailer Trailer Hitch Fit 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport With Spare Tire
    The etrailer.com Trailer Hitch # E98841 does fit your 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport with a spare tire, though it can be tricky in order to get it back into position. You (or your friend) may need to angle the tire in and out, and use a bit of force to get it back into position. If you go to about the 8:20 mark of the linked installation video you can see how one of our installers got the spare tire back on in a Santa Fe after a hitch install.

If you are looking for a bike rack then I highly recommend the Kuat NV 2.0 Base # BA22B because it is not only a great looking bike rack but it also has easy-to-use features like the foot pedal for tilting and folding the rack. You also have the ability to add some upgrades like the add-on # BA02B to carry up to...

    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. WD systems are better than suspension enhancement for towing situations as it helps level the tow vehicle by redistributing some of the tongue weight of the trailer up to the front axle. This...

For your Santa Fe Limited I instead recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75776.

  • What Ball Mount Is Needed for a 4x8 U-Haul Cargo Trailer with a 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe
    The etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver part # E98841 when we installed it on a 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe was 13" from the ground to the top inside edge of the receiver tube. I called U-Haul and they said that the coupler height of the 4x8 cargo trailer is around 16" from the ground to the bottom of the coupler while level therefore you will need to use the Curt Ball Mount for 2" Hitches part # C45311 with the 2" Hitch Ball part # A-90.

  • 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...

  • Selecting Correct Fixed Ball Mount or Adjustable Ball Mount for 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport
    The best way to select a ball mount with the ideal amount of rise or drop to keep a hitched trailer level is to take a measurement of the hitch and the coupler heights when both the vehicle and trailer are on level ground. The linked article shows how to take these easy measurements. The difference between the hitch and coupler heights give you the amount of rise or drop needed. There's also the option of using an adjustable ball mount. Hitch # e98841 that fits your 2017 Hyundai Santa...

Since you will be using a freight forwarding service to accept the hitch and send it on to you at your overseas location I recommend that when you call etrailer Customer Service to place and pay for the order that you also ask them to provide extra packaging for protection during the long shipping process.

  • Class III or Class II Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport
    A Class II or III hitch would work fine for what you are planning to do with your 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport but since the Class III hitch has the 2 inch opening size which has more racks and accessories made for it that is the size I always recommend when available. So for that the etrailer hitch # e98841 would be the way to go. For a 3 bike rack the Swagman Trailhead part # S63365 is a really great option too.
