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.

This fully welded trailer hitch receiver bolts onto your vehicle's frame with no welding required. Matte black, powder coated steel is durable and corrosion resistant and creates a rugged look.


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.



Have a large family, even a minivan doesnt have enough storage sometimes. Since our van didnt come with factory roof storage rails, and the aftermarket kits didnt have a big weight rating, I opted for this hitch and bought a cargo rack to go with it and weve used it on every single vacation. Its been a life saver!. We can easily put a cooler and a storage tote on the cargo rack, and all of our non-weather proof items in the van and just drive. We pull up to a rest stop unload the cooler and food tote, enjoy lunch and were back on the road. The trailer hitch has worked perfectly for us even just for a cargo rack! So glad I took the time and investment!

@Nick We're glad to hear the hitch is coming in handy!


I have yet to install the hitch so I can’t speak to the quality. However there was a significant part that was exposed from the box upon delivery. This could be the fault of UPS but also maybe not packaged well. Hopefully there isn’t any damage.



Although the hitch arrived where part of it was hanging out of the box. Again maybe the fault of the delivery company, customer service did reach out to assist or correct any problems. However, everything was just fine. The hitch was in great shape, installed easily, and has performed as needed. I would definitely recommend.


I have not installed the hitch yet but it looks just like I expected and my towing capacity is only 4000 lbs with my vehicle but I would easily bet this hitch would be fine at twice that. I have other trucks with hitches no heavier than this that will pull that much.


Etrailer has receiver hitches down to a science. I'm incredibly impressed on how every hitch I've installed fits perfectly. The instructions both manual and online are a great advantage for installation.

Dodge Grand Caravan

Using it on my dodge caravan minivan with the swing away hitch and tire carrier. Good quality product and would recommend it to others. And Courtney helped me pick out everything I would need for my project. I’ve been shopping at etrailer now for 20 years and they are the best!

2008 Chrysler Town and Country

I installed this hitch receiver in less than 30 minutes. It looks great on my 2008 Chrysler Town and Country. Thank you all


Our Etrailer trailer hitch has been perfect. We have used it often throughout the year with no problems. Would not hesitate to buy from this company again! Highly recommend.

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.


Tucks up sleek under the bumper. Easy install. Works great. Recommend air helper springs if towing heavy


No brainer install, just watch E Trailer video & have the right tools. I have installed 2 of these save big $$$ over dealer install

2015 Dodge Grand Caravan

All the hitches I have purchased always fit without additional work. Great quality and fast shipping THANKS


This was easy to install and fit perfect on my 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan


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.


Hitch still looks great, and is holding up very well. We use it for a wheel chair lift.


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.


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


Works great for my 50+lb ebike.
wish the rack would weigh less.

2019 Dodge Grand Caravan

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,


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 installation. Good quality



Still holding up great after a year of use. Solid with no signs of rust.


The box was delivered to my house, severely damaged and the reason for this is it was very poorly packed. It was merely just placed in a cardboard box loose so we could bang around the whole time. It was being shipped to me come on etrailer you’re better than this.


I installed it myself. I only needed to remove the first 3 bolts holding the exhaust system. The hardest part was removing some of the older bolts on my car - they were frozen in place - but I hit the bolt with a blow torch for about a minute and then came off easy. It would be easier to do with two people but I did it all by myself using blocks of wood to hold up each side.


It was exactly as advertised. Easy DIY install with basic skill level.
Thanks for a great product for a fair price. Al

2013 Dodge Grand Caravan

Still going after one year. Getting the bolt under muffler installed and torqued was a bit of a challenge. Just have a bit of patience and flexibility. Installed on a 2013 dodge caravan.


Perfect fit for my van

  • Factory Bolt Size For Installing etrailer Hitch e98854 on Chrysler Town & Country
    While there isn't a list of factory parts, I can tell you the size of bolts that your 2011 Chrysler Town & Country should have in order to install the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98854. You should have M10 bolts for the two bolt holes closest to the bumper, and M12 bolts for the remaining three bolt holes, along with the appropriate washers. I have added a link below to a video install of the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98854 on an '11 Town & Country which I also recommend...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Can Hitch from 2000 Dodge Caravan also Fit 2012 Model

  • 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 To Do When You Break A Bolt Off In A Weld Nut When Installing A Trailer Hitch
    I'm sorry to hear that your installation was not easy peasy, but I may have one tip to help you remove the bolt so you can finish installing the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98854. Since you have just the stud portion of the bolt left and it's trapped in a weld nut in the frame and can't just drill it out I recommend using a much smaller drill bit, like a 1/16 or 5/32 and carefully drill a few holes in a line in the center of the bolt. It doesn't have to be very deep but keeping it...

  • 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.

  • etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2009 Chrysler Town and Country Does Not Line Up with Frame Holes
    It can be somewhat common for mounting holes to not line up properly when speaking of a trailer hitch like the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98854 which is a fit for a 2009 Chrysler Town and Country.

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...

  • Trailer Hitch that Fits 2009 Chrysler Town and Country that Doesn't Require Fascia Trimming
    For the etrailer hitch # e98854 that fits your 2009 Chrysler Town and Country the instructions state that fascia trimming is most likely needed for the Town and Country models like you have. The Draw Tite # 75579 that fits your vehicle does not have any trimming listed so it may be your best option.

  • 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.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2010 Chrysler Town and Country with Stow-N-Go Seats
    There are no restrictions for Stow-N-Go seats for a trailer hitch for your 2010 Chrysler Town and Country so the trailer hitch I recommend for your van is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13364 or etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98854 These are easy to install hitches and the only difference is cosmetic - the matte black finish of the etrailer hitch vs. the glossy finish of the Curt hitch. Otherwise they are the same in regards to installation and capacity so I recommend going with...

This hitch has a concealed cross tube so the majority of the hitch will be hidden, leaving only the receiver visible.

The # e98854 will require no drill for the install as it uses the existing hardware already on the vehicle. It is rated up to 4,000 pounds towing and 400 pounds of tongue weight.
