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.

Fit great and is still working well after 1 year of use. Huge selling point for me was that this etrailer hitch is Made in the USA! Also installed a new wiring harness and brake controller from etrailer.com. Very happy with customer support and available tech info.

Eases hitch I ever put on.I would recommend etrailer for any trailer needs. Thanks again

Trailer hitch receiver fit correctly and installed easily. Only negative, the hardware kit for mounting wasn’t exact match. Had to purchase a couple of bolts to finish/ complete installation.

I purchased the Draw Tite trailer hitch receiver from etrailer for my 2007 Solverado. It arrived within 5 days. The install was real easy. I followed the instructions that came with the product and I did not have to touch the spare tire or raise the truck. The hitch receiver fit perfectly, the holes lined up exactly. I did use an electric impact wrench, just make sure you have the correct size sockets with a ratchet wrench & torque wrench. I've yet to test it by hauling something but I will in a few weeks.

Etrailer was super easy to find the hitch we needed and got to us in the two days. I will say I think the shipping prices are a bit much if I’m being honest. Yes you pay for it to get to you quicker but $144 for two days is a bit much on top of the $131 for the hitch. But other than that I’m very satisfied with etrailer.

I got this for my 2012 GMC Sierra and it fit great all mounting holes lined up and it's well made. I use to haul my mountain bike in bed of the truck. I now have a shell on it and use it for a weekend get away camper. Mounting the hitch I now use a Thule T2 XT Pro hitch mount bike rack and it makes an awesome set up.

Great product loved the hitch but the hardware that was sent was wrong didn’t have the 4 bolts that is used for the threaded holes in truck frame. That’s the only reason I gave it 4 star rating. Thanks

Not a good fit. I did finally get it done but was not easy.hitch has a twist in it that makes it very difficult to get the bolts in.

Thank you for your review. Your hitch was probably flexed. I will attach a help article explaining this.

The tow hitch that came off my truck ad a third attachment to the frame This one only had 2. No fault to the company. I am sure it will work well for my application. It was an exact fit to the frame which made it nice and easy to install. Prompt delivery to what was quoted.

Working well, easy install. Did only have 2 bolt frame mounting and the original had 3 bolts per side. but no issues as of yet and it looks good.

2010 Chevrolet Silverado

Ordered on Wednesday and arrived on Friday installed on Saturday. Very easy to install, I did it by myself by using jack stands to prop the hitch in place under the Silverado but not having to jack the truck up. I felt like the hardest part of the whole install was getting the recommended torque on the bolts, but thanks to help of a cheater bar. The whole install including lowering the spare tire took 3 hours. I haven't used the hitch as of yet but I'm very confident it will be great! I plan on pulling my 5x8 wire mesh utility trailer. A second person would have been needed if I didn't have the Jack stands.

  • How to install the Etrailer Class III hitch part # e98849 on a 2011 GMC Sierra
    The bolt closest to the front of the vehicle in the photo you sent, once it's removed the hole does not get used with the Etrailer hitch Item # e98849. The hitch will actually use the two rear most holes on each frame rail and the two holes in the bottom of the bumper. The reason one bolt is facing up is because the hole closest to the rear of the vehicle is a pre-existing weld nut that the bolt actually threads into. The bolt facing down will use a spacer block to keep the head of...

  • Difference Between Class III and Class IV Hitches for 2004 Chevy Silverado
    Class III hitches that fit your 2004 Chevy Silverado like the # e98849 just aren't made for the same towing capacities as the Class IV hitches like # C14332. You'll notice that the Class IV mentioned here has more bolts that attach it to the truck frame as the most obvious difference. Other than that it's more or less the thickness of the metal used etc.

  • Replacement for Factory Trailer Hitch On 2012 GMC Sierra 1500
    The etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98849 will be an excellent replacement hitch option for the factory hitch on a 2012 GMC Sierra 1500. It will provide a direct bolt-on swap with no drilling required. It's rated for up to 10,000 lbs which should be on par with the factory hitch.

  • Trailer Hitch and Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation for 2004 GMC Sierra
    The etrailer brand Class III hitch you mentioned, part # e98849 is a confirmed fit for your 2004 GMC Sierra 1500 or 2500LD. The hitch has a 6000 lb towing capacity or a 600 lb tongue weight capacity. The tongue weight capacity reprents the maximum amount of downward force from a trailer tongue that the hitch can safely handle. If used with weight distribution, the capacities rise to 10000 lbs towing/1000 lbs tongue weight, but keep in mind, this the the capacity of the hitch, which...

  • Recommended Hitch Receiver & Brake Controller For 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
    I recommend getting a 2 Inch Class III Hitch Receiver # e98849. That will be great for what you're planning to tow. It has a 6,000 lb max gross trailer weight capacity. As far as the braking system goes, the best and simplest brake controller on the market is the Curt Echo # C51180. This doesn't require all the wiring that comes with a traditional braking system and is all controlled by your phone. Super simply and easy. I've included some videos for you to watch to get a closer look...

  • Does Installation of Trailer Hitch in 2003 Chevy Silverado Require Drilling
    The holes are already in the frame of your 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500 for a trailer hitch receiver to be installed, which means you aren't going to have to do any drilling for installation. I recommend the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98849 because it is a quality hitch with a matte black finish that is going to hide any potential scratches while also being the most economical option for a trailer hitch on your truck. I have added a link to the installation instructions as well...

  • Best Trailer Hitch for 2002 GMC Sierra 1500
    Yes! The trailer hitch # e98849 is a confirmed fit for your 2002 GMC Sierra 1500! I attached a video of the install process if you want to check it out. If you're using this to tow, you might also want to pick up our towing package with a ball mount # C45036 and wiring harness # C55384.

  • Do Trailer Hitches Fit Multiple Years Of The Chevy Silverado
    A lot of the trailer hitches available for the 2013 Chevrolet Silverado fit a span of over multiple years as long as the generation does not change. For example the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98849 fits 1999 - 2013 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. I would need to know if the 2013 chevy Silverado is a half-ton, three quarter or 1 ton. I would also need to know the bed size and if the truck is a cab chassis model in order to tell you which trailer hitches fit which years.

  • What Trucks Have the Same Hitch Fits as 2005 Chevy Silverado 1500
    The trailer hitches that fit your 2005 Chevy Silverado 1500 like our etrailer.com hitch part # E98849 fit a really wide range of trucks. Basically GMC Sierra 1500 or Chevy Silverado 1500 from 1999 through 2013 plus the 1999 through 2004 2500LD trucks from GMC and Chevy. For the price of a new one like the # E98849 and the peace of mind knowing the hitch is brand new and not rusting or otherwise compromised a new hitch would seem like the best and safest choice!

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2007 Chevy Silverado 1500 Classic V6 Occasional Towing
    We have a great priced hitch that fits your 2007 Chevy Silverado Classic that would work really great. The etrailer.com hitch part # E98849 fits your vehicle and has more than enough capacity than you'd need. Your V6 engine would not affect the fit of this hitch either. I attached an install video for more info as well on this hitch. Since you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900.

  • Is The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver 13301 A Fit For A 2006 Chevrolet Silverado
    While we do have a solution for you, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13301 is designed for new generation models starting in 2007. My recommendation is the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver Class III - 2" # e98849 for your 2006 Silverado because the matte black finish tends to be more scratch resistant than the glossy finishes like that of the Curt. Included are video resources for both.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for Lowered 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500
    If you have the stock bumper then the hitches made to fit the stock bumper would work well for you. For that we have the etrailer.com hitch part # e98849 as a confirmed fit. This won't fit behind the license plate though. The roll pan bumper hitches like the part # 13932 might work for this since that's how they install but we can't guarantee they'll work with the factory bumper.

  • Trailer Hitch Fit Recommendation for 2010 Chevy Silverado 1500
    There's a chance the Curt hitch part # E-3S would fit your 2010 Chevy Silverado but since this is a universal style hitch that's never been fit tested on your truck we can't guarantee that. We do have hitches for your Silverado though that are a confirmed fit. For example we have the etrailer hitch part # E98849 which has a 6,000 lb trailer capacity and attaches to the truck frame instead for a much more secure mount.

  • Would Trailer Hitch from 1995 Chevy Silverado fit 2001 Chevy Silverado
    There was a pretty big generation change between 1998 and 1999 Chevy Silverados which meant the hitch manufacturers had to redesign a hitch for the trucks. That means you'd need a new hitch for the 2001 Silverado like the # e98849.

  • Will Curt C13900 Fit my 2001 Chevy Silverado
    While the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13900 Would fit your Silverado it would require a lot of modifications be made to the truck by drilling into the frame. Instead use the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98849 which is designed specifically for your 2001 Silverado and will not require any drilling. It is also more economical and has a higher weight capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure that you do not exceed your particular trucks capacity. If for some...
