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.

I submitted a five star rating and I'm extremely happy with the fastest delivery in the easy installation. The only problem I had was trying to download the Finish photo where's my rating and for some reason it wouldn't download it after three tries. Thank you for everything and I highly recommend etrailer to anyone. Again I gave it a 5-star rating thank you for everything.

I just installed my trailer hitch a couple days ago on my 2017 Chevrolet Silverado pickup and it was very easy. I watched the 5 min. video prior to installation and it was exactly as the video showed. With the help of my brother-in-law we had it installed from start to finish in about 20 min. The quality of construction looked good and should suit my needs completely and the price was great. My local Chevrolet dealership wanted $300 just for the hitch and $50 to install it and it only cost me $150 to buy it on your site and No installation cost. I would recommend this site to anyone.

Website very easy to operate and fubd exactly the right part to fit my truck/trailer !!! Videos were very helpful even telling me what sockets and wrenches I needed to complete install by myself and Im a carpenter not really mechanically gifted. Will definitely use etrailer.com again without hesitation!!

Delivery was quicker than expected, the parts fit perfect, and the instructions were clear and concise. Small parts were securely wrapped to the assembly. The only recommendation I’d have is to get a stronger box. The transit to my home beat the parcel up pretty good resulting in part of the hitch exposed with a couple scuff marks. It was only cosmetic and didn’t take away from the product. Extremely happy with the customer support and the quick turnaround time, I’d gladly do business with etrailer again!

Before the product, some words on the service. I had multiple interactions with a customer service queen named Nicki (sp?) and she was awesome. Super knowledgeable about the products and about navigating the website (which was easy), and actually listened to my questions rather than telling me what she thought I should hear. Give her a raise and have her train people. Now the product: I ordered late in the day Tuesday and my shipment arrived Thursday about noon. I watched the installation video already, so I went to it. Took me about 30 minutes to install the hitch and another 3 min. to install the 7-way/4-way plug my truck needed, all by my lonesome. I have all the tools needed and have been accused of being handy, but the install was exactly as easy as the video showed. Two people and a lift would be great, but putting a 2x6 on a floor jack and putting the hitch on the 2x6 worked great to lift it into position. Jacked right up, putting the factory studs in the holes. Wiring plug is idiotproof, so nothing else to say on that. Only head scratcher is the recommended torque specs on the instruction sheet. I followed the [manufacturer's specifications] but I could easily get another 1/4 to 1/2 turn plus on all fasteners after I hit the mark. Maybe a response to me and something in FAQs might help clarify on this. Overall, a terrific buying experience. No complaints yet, but I only used it to pull a few small trees out this afternoon. I presume it will pull my boat and trailer just fine, and the bolts will not get loose. But my torque concern will mean I'll have to keep an eye on it. Good work, etrailer.com


Comments
I did speak with our in house engineer, and another hitch manufacturer for verification and the torque specs are based on federal standards. The hitch hardware should only be torque to the specifications, and not beyond because it can be over torqued and can break or damage the hardware if it is over torqued.

It feels like it was carved from the side of a Sherman tank. It arrived in two days and couldn’t be easier to install provided you’ve got the big wrenches, sockets, extensions, and torque wrench handy. Measure it before you attempt to install. Mine had one side bent by 3cm probably thanks to an inattentive forklift driver somewhere. It was nothing I couldn’t true up with a bottle jack and some cribbing. My thinking being; if I can’t endure 3cm of adversity, then maybe I shouldn’t be rigging my truck to tow 9,000 Lbs. Once it was squared up, my son, Charlie, and I had it on in 1/2 hour. Lowering the spare tire might give you more room to work but we didn’t feel the need. I highly recommend.

This product was a great purchase for my application! etrailer made it easy to compare several different options that were specific to my truck, and it was easy to select the one with the tow ratings I needed for my customers needs..The model I selected was actually rated to surpass the load ratings of even other more expensive alternatives elsewhere .., couldn't be happier with the fit, finish and appearance of the hitch. They shipped promptly and even assisted me very promptly in clearing up a question I had regarding the hitch I purchased . Shipping was fast, the pricing was great and I will absolutely be a customer again soon. Thanks to all on the team at etrailer for a great purchase and for solving my question so quickly too! Best regards , Joe Turk, Owner: Fairway Auto Sales

The fit and ease of installation is above average and very much appreciated. The only problem is; I had to touch up 2 areas where the powder coat was busted off due to packaging and handling during shipping. The box arrived with a big hole in the box which caused the defects in the powder coat finish. I had to touch up these areas. Because it wasn't packaged properly, the weight of the hitch shifted and busted open the box containing my electrical connector resulting in all my connector hardware to be missing, luckily I didn't need it for this installation. etrailer needs to do a better job of packaging. If I didn't have this damage, it would have been a 5 star and I did read other reviews where people said the same thing about the lousy packaging.

Extremely easy to install , didn't have to remove or change anything on vehicle from factory as the etrailer hitch bolted right up. I would definitely recommend this hitch to any DO IT YOURSELFER.

  • Determining Correct Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

  • Towing Capacity for 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 with 5.3L Engine and 3.08 Axle Ratio
    I took a look at the online version of the owner's manual for your 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 with the 5.3L V8 engine and 3.08 axle ratio and it lists a maximum trailer weight of 6,500 pounds if you have the 2WD model or 6,200 pounds if you have 4WD. I do still recommend verifying this in your copy of the manual or by visiting a local Chevy dealer with your VIN. If you are looking to tow a standard bumper pull trailer and don't yet have a hitch installed I recommend the etrailer.com...
