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.

2020 Dodge Grand Caravan

This is my second hitch from 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!

It is holding up fine. I use it every week.
R.D. - 06/02/2022


2016 Chrysler Town & Country van.
easy installation. Only 5 bolts for the hitch itself, 3 bolts to displace the exhaust/muffler. It's better if you have a 2nd person to help lift it into place, but I managed to get it close enough with 2 standing 5 gallon buckets and a 2 X 4 board piece. I jacked up the back of the van and placed on hack stands. A breaker bar or impact wrench is highly recommended. Get some cardboard boxes to lay on the ground which makes it easier for you to slide around on. I plan on using this for a hitch carrier, and once I add the towing wiring, I can use it for a Harbor Freight utility trailer. Customer service was great, received hitch sooner than expected.


About a year ago I purchased this for my wife’s 2013 Chrysler town and county van so she could haul her and the kids bikes. It was easy to install when following the video and does not rattle or have other issues. I would buy again and found best price and good service at the time. I have not pulled many trailers as the wiring kit and process did not seem easy and at the time was also pricey. I hope to relook at the wiring this year. For bikes. Is excellent


I have purchased several trailer hitches from e trailer. All have been manufactured well and install as per instructions. This one was for my Chrysler minivan and installed perfectly following instructions. Tow hitch barely visible below rear bumper as per picture.


I've only used this hitch for a cargo trailer, but it has worked beautifully for that. It is nestled just a little deeper than the bumper, so I never hit it with my shin, but it's still pretty easy to put in the locking pin. I was very satisfied with the product, though installing by my self was pretty tough.

2015 Dodge Grand Caravan

The hitch fit perfectly, put it on he same day I received it,which was one day earlier than expected. All instructions were easy to understand and helped steps in the installation.

No issues at all, very happy with the product and service.
Llewellyn - 11/14/2022

2019 Dodge Grand Caravan

Receiver brackets were deformed and did not align with the factory mounting holes on my van. Had to bend brackets back into alignment. Supposedly this is a common occurrence however there is no mention of checking the alignment of the brackets in the directions or installation video. Wasted my time fighting with it.
How to bend brackets back:
After correcting the alignment, receiver went on easy. Hello extra cargo capacity!

2013 Chrysler Town and Country

Easy to install, exactly fit for 2013 Town and Country without need to make any cuts.

Note: installed by myself without a lift. Attached side with one bolt (not tightened) then lifted other side and started bolts then slowly ran bolts in until snug. After making sure all was well, torqued to specs.

Make sure to follow warnings on instructions, especially about removing bolts on vehicle frame. If you remove all 4 bolts you risk the bumper coming out of alignment.

2013 Dodge Grand Caravan

Etrailer had the best price. It arrived early. I carried it into the house from the porch. Its strong heavy steel. they have a video on the item webpage showing how to install. So far a great retail experience.

Best Price. Heavy metal. Quality product that was kind of easy to install.
Joseph - 10/13/2022


Great fit, no issues. Installed in an hour and half by myself. A helper would have been good but I managed to wrestle up one side and get a bolt started then lift the other side without too much issues. Remove the 3 exhaust hanger bolts before starting to get access on passenger side. Before torquing, recommend adjusting the assembly as far towards driver side as the slotted holes will allow. This will increase clearance from muffler as much as possible. Plan to use mostly for bike rack but seems fairly solid.


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.

A year later, I have no regrets. This is a good hitch.
Rudy - 07/20/2022


The hitch was a good price and quick delivery. I'm confident I could have installed it myself, although I had a mechanic do it for the sake of convenience. I've been using the hitch for a year with no issues.

2014 Dodge Grand Caravan

Great quality, easy to install, it took maybe 45 minutes with no modification.


As with the past purchases I have made the hitch came quick and it is a solid hitch. Fit exactly and I'm happy to say it is a VERY nice heavy duty hitch. I highly recommend etrailer. Thanks etrailer!

Great. No Problems at all. Easy to put on and it still looks like a new hitch..
Melvin U - 05/27/2022


Honestly, the easiest hitch I have ever installed. Install was about 20 minutes with impacts. This is just a fact of the hardware being pre-existing on the vehicle, and the exhaust hangers being bolted to the vehicle.

That’s being said, etrailer’s packaging is horrendous. Hitch showed up loosely in a giant bit of cardboard that used to be a box. Hitch was in ok shape. It seems etrailer knows this is the case, as all the hitches I have bought from them come with the directions and hardware taped inside the receiver.


Perfect fit, second hitch we have purchased from Etrailer, best cost and great service!


Love to hook up bike rake


The Trailer Hitch works great and was very easy to put on, Thanks


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!


Easy to install with two people. One of the sides, or wings was slightly bent, probably bent in shipping. I was able to bend it back with plyers. Big plyers.


Very fast service from I cannot wait to get it hooked up and try it out.

2017 Dodge Grand Caravan

Great product, perfect fit for my 2017 Grand Caravan. Uses existing bolts on the van so no drilling, lined up exact. Installed in 15 minutes. Looks good too!


Received very promptly and fit our 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan GT exactly as described.

Dodge Grand Caravan

Fit like a glove. This thing is rock solid. Get a friend to help with the install as it is heavy and the underside of Dodge Caravan doesn't have much room.


Hitch arrived quickly. Unfortunately, it had a rough ride! There was a big hole in the box with the hitch mounting bracket sticking out. When we opened the box the mounting bolts were missing. I called e trailer and they said they will send the mounting bolts. Hope they get here by Friday because the vehicle is to leave to Florida by Monday. Thanks, Dennis

I will have our customer service team reach out to you. This hitch uses the existing hardware on the vehicle to install.

  • 2 inch Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan
    There is a generation change between a 2006 and 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan so you'd have to go with a new hitch for the 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan. The hitch part # E98854 that you referenced would be what you would need for a 2 inch hitch and would work well.

  • Is Trailer Hitch Receiver Compatible with 2010 Chrysler Town and Country Stow and Go
    The Trailer Hitch Receiver # E98854 is compatible with the Stow and Go seating in your 2010 Town and Country. It is a very easy installation and in many cases doesn't require notching the fascia. If your specific vehicle does, this is very easy to do and doesn't impact the overall look. I've attached the installation instructions and a video to assist.

  • Who Can Install Class III Trailer Hitch on 2014 Chrysler Town and Country
    Yes, a local mechanic or shop with some experience should have no problem installing a trailer hitch like the Class III # E98854 that you referenced on your 2014 Chrysler Town and Country. This is a relatively straightforward install process that doesn't require any drilling since the custom brackets are designed to line up to existing holes in the vehicle's frame. The manufacturer estimates an install time of only around 25 minutes for a professional. All the necessary hardware...

  • What is Towing Capacity of 2014 Chrysler Town and Country
    Looks like your 2014 Chrysler Town and Country has a towing capacity of 3,600 lbs which means you could tow your trailer that has a dry weight of 3,000 lbs as long as you don't load it with more than 600 lbs. If you were looking for a hitch for your Van the etrailer part # E98854 has plenty of capacity and installs easily as well.

  • Installation of etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver on 2014 VW Routan
    The etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Matte Black Finish - Class III - 2" # e98854 torque specs are listed correctly. The verbiage for the bolt switches to thread diameter and not wrench size for torque values, so the larger bolt will be the 86 lbs you referenced and the smaller diameter bolt will be the 48 ft lbs you also referenced. I reached out to our tech to confirm so you can rest assured this is the correct fit.

  • Can You Install Trailer Hitch Receiver On a 2016 Chrysler Town and Country Without Lowering Exhaust
    It may be possible to install a trailer hitch receiver like the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98854 on your 2016 Chrysler Town and Country with the exhaust still installed. Getting the passenger side bolts out of the frame and installing the trailer hitch receiver will be pretty difficult which is why we recommend temporarily lowering the exhaust.

    All of our trailer hitches will actually accommodate the Stow-N-Go seats in your 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan! Out of the available options I recommend going with a 2" receiver as it is compatible with more accessories than the 1-1/4" options. All of our 2" receivers mount the exact same way so I recommend installing the etrailer Trailer Hitch # e98854. This has a tongue weight (TW) rating of 400 lbs and a gross towing weight (GTW) rating of 4,000 lbs. when used with a weight distribution...

  • Would Hitch from 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan also fit 2010 Model
    There was a big enough change between the 2005 and 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan with stow and go seats that a different hitch had to be designed. For example the # 75305 fits the 2005 model and the part # e98854 fits the 2010 models.

    We can get your 2014 Chrysler Town and Country set up for towing, starting with the trailer hitch receiver, and for that I recommend the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98854.

The Draw Tite # 75579 that fits your vehicle does not have any trimming listed so it may be your best option.

  • Trailer Hitch Fit for 2010 Dodge Caravan
    The 75133 is a discontinued Draw-Tite Class III hitch that fits the older GM minivans such as the Chevy Venture, Pontiac Trans Sport, Buick Terazza and Saturn Relay. It won't be a fit for your 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan. The good news is that we do offer a hitch fit for your vehicle. I'd recommend the etrailer brand Class III hitch, part # e98854.

    Yes the etrailer hitch # e98854 that fits your 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan will do a great job towing a 5 x 8 rental trailer. You'll also need trailer wiring too like with the Tekonsha # 118534 to control the taillights of the trailer. They'll let you borrow a ball mount so I wouldn't worry about buying one at this time.
