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.

When hitch for my 2014 T&C got to me the box was torn up so I thought there might be damage. Nope it was just fine. Very very well built, nice welds, great craftsmanship. The mat black finish is really nice looking and it look like it will hold up well. The hitch fit up under the van really well all you can see of it is the 2 inch receiver. NICE! Thanks for an inexpensive, well built, nice looking hitch!

This is my second hitch from etrailer.com. I am a return customer because I was satisfied with my first hitch. This one was even easier to install. I put it on in about a 1/2 hour in my drive with out a jack or second person. I will plug in the wiring tomorrow. I remember how easy that was the first time. I am a little OCD and will run the power wires from the battery inside pex tubing under the vehicle just like the first one. There was nothing hard or surprising with this hitch. I am happy, happy, happy!

Well made, quality hitch. Perfect fit for our 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan. Arrived quickly and well packaged, despite box being a bit beat up, due to the weight of the hitch. etrailer also wrapped the hitch with packaging, and included instructions. It can be done fairly easily on the ground, depending on how big you are. The hitch bolted up perfectly, using the bolts already installed on the van. Clearance between the hitch and the bumper was perfect, no cutting or bending required with this hitch. Very happy with etrailer,

This is the 3rd or 4th time I have purchased a hitch and wiring from etrailer. I have never been disappointed by this company! Yesterday I installed the hitch and wiring on my 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan GT. The hitch took a few more minutes than anticipated, only because the exhaust system resonator was in the way, more than expected. A minor delay. Running the power wire to the battery always takes the most amount of time, if you do not have a lift. I just move slowly and tie-wrap it in several places so I know it will remain out of the way.

Still works great! Not a single problem.

An awesome product! There is no other place I would buy a trailer hitch. It is NOT easy to install by yourself, but it can be done - just be careful! Buy the wiring kit you need from eTrailer, it will make life much easier and you will have no issues with bad connections. No I'm not an employee, I own a pool contractor business and have installed eTrailer products on work trucks and my personal vehicle. Their customer is equally awesome!

The hitch and electrical kit arrived on time. The box was really trashed but the contents were fine. I just installed the hitch tonight and it was easy to do . I was going to install the electrical this evening but ran out of time . I watched the video for installation and it looked pretty simple. The installation videos for the products are a great help .

I liked the Trailer Hitch but it wasn't as easy to install as made to believe. Took two of use using a floor jack about 90 minutes to install. But once installed it looks and good. The product was delivered as promised and the staff that assisted me gave me all the information I needed. The Trailer hitch fit my car as promised. I will order from you again if I need additional products for my Cargo lift.

The trailer hitch is rock solid. We attached a power lift to the hitch to carry a power wheel chair and its wonderful. Great product and great company.

I have purchased 5 or 6 trailer hitches from etrailer up to this point & have been satisfied with them every time. Everyone of their videos have been very helpful to watch & understand prior to installing the hitch. I have had friends order etrailer hitches for their vehicles & have helped them install them. I will continue to recommend etrailer to others.

Product showed up wrapped in bubble wrap and not a trashed box like many other reviews cited. Hitch was in perfect condition along with specific directions that included exact tool sizes (very nice as I live in an city with no driveways and only street parking. This allowed me to take only the necessary tools without luging the whole toolbox). Watching the install video also showed exactly what to expect. The exhaust was the pain for this install (keeping it out of the way to put bolts in to be specific). The whole install took about 40-45 minutes with no extra hands to help. I’d buy this hitch again with no hesitation.


Comments
I’ve pulled my boat every weekend, for spring summer and fall, back and forth to the different lakes I fish as well as towed it half way across the US for a family vacation with exactly zero problems. Great buy I’d make again when my next vehicle is purchased.

This was as easy as it could possibly be. An extra pair of hands to hold the hitch in position would have been helpful but I managed by myself at 74. This is a quality heavy-duty hitch and I have no misgivings about using it.

The hitch came very fast, it was exactly what I wanted. The directions were explicit. It took me only about 45 minutes to install, and it fit like a glove. I am very happy with the entire transaction, from beginning to end. Price was right as well!

the reason I gave one star is when I removed it from the box both ends are scratched up down to the metal. now I have to paint the ends so it does not rust. There is on mounting Instructions.

2015 Dodge Grand Caravan

The hitch arrived on time, packaged well enough there was no damage or bent mounting brackets. Was able to get it installed solo, using three jackstands to gradually raise on end and then the other until it was high enough to get the the chassis bolts start. Having a second person (as recommended) is certainly the preferred method. Had the rear of the vehicle up on ramps. I prefer the etrailer hitch matte black versus the standard glossy black. And only the receive is visible which is my preference. No trimming or "forcing" was needed for hitch to fit hidden behind the bumper fascia.
