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 received my hitch and wiring harness kit for my 2019 Frontier within a few days after ordering. The items were well packaged, and nothing was damaged. The install instructions/video on your website were spot on. I had the whole thing installed and ready to go in less than an hour. Fit and finish of the etrailer hitch is very nice for the price. I would definitely recommend etrailer.com to others.

Everything hooked up fast and easy. I use it a lot and I am very happy with the wiring harness and the trailer connector. I recommend these products.

It appears to be a fairly quality receiver. The only issue I had was both mounts were bent in some, so the forward most holes were about half off the mark. However, I was able to get the all bolts in using a small pry bar. Other than that it worked fine.

Installing the trailer hitch on my 2019 Nission was quick and easy - as advertised. A great price for a product that is everything it is advertised to be. The unit was sent within days of being ordered, arrived well ahead of the primised date and I was told by the delivery driver that another similar unit was to be delivered next. A good product and good service delivers.

Easy peazy! Nice hitch, great price. Took about 1/2 hour to install by myself with the help of a floor jack. Fit & finish both are EXCELLENT. Unlike others, there was NO issue aligning the elongated bolt holes with the holes in my frame. I did soak the nuts in the frame for 2 days with WD 40 to insure no issue threading the bolts in and there wasn't. Short of ETrailer coming and installing this for me it could not have been any easier from ordering to installation! THANKS etrailer!

I have ordered several hitches from etrailer, all top brands including their house label built by name brand co & quality at a fair price, almost all were bolt in & go, except had to drill the 08 Marquis? Cant remember which. This one was for the 12 Frontier, perfect except arrived not in a box (damaged in ship?). Sent in email about it on Friday night, got an email back in Sunday that they would reship the bolts and the missing plug/play wire harness got them very quick even with 4th of July and son bolted it in did the wire harness and left to trailer home another Honda with it. Very good customer service to go with great hitches and equip. I will be ordering front hitch for this one soon.

Had to have the trailer hitch installed by a pro because it was bent ! All the holes did not line up.

Thank you for the review! I wanted to share an article from our site that has tips and tricks to straighten out a hitch as it is likely that the hitch became flexed in shipping. I hope this helps for future reference.

Awesome product and excellent customer service!! Online installation videos are very well done. Got the hitch for my 2019 Nissan Frontier, one year later, couldn’t be happier with it!!

Hitch was quickly received after ordering and installed without any issues on my 2018 Nissan Frontier Pro4X Crew Cab. I preferred this model for the cost savings and I did not need a bracket or mount for the 7 way plug on the hitch since I mounted it in the bumper.

The etrailer site was great! 1. Wide variety of product selection and competitive prices 2 Web site was easy to navigate 3. Shipping for all items was completed in 5 days. 4. Everything was packaged great. 5. No incremental shipping charge The trailer hitch that I purchased was easily installed on my 2019 Nissan Frontier. Start to finish was less than 20 minutes.

Totally satisfied. The etrailer hitch for my Nissan Frontier arrived as promised and in good shape. Received an email from Carol at etrailer.com with info package and offer to answer any questions. Installed hitch on my own with no problems. Completely happy with the product and service.

Solid quality, matte finish is a nice touch. Would have given it 5 stars but had some issues with the bolt alignment. With the help of some c clamps and elbow grease got it installed. Overall, happy with this hitch.

I thought I might show this receiver trailer I just received from your company. Picture shows that left side lines up but right side doesn't. I'm fixing to go to a machinist to slightly bend this part. It's so difficult for me to put it up then remove to straighten then put back on. What are your thoughts? I prefer not to return as I broke the box up already.

Ordered a different brand from another supplier, and it was damaged in shipping. Ordered this one from etrailer, and it arrived in perfect condition in a few days. Installation was a breeze, exact fit, and already towed a trailer. Great product.

I bought this hitch and wiring for a new 2019 Nissan Frontier. I installed everything myself. The receiver would be easier to install with a second pair of hands but I managed by using a piece of rope to lift one side into place and kept it suspended so I could get the bolts started in the other side. Then started the bolts in the rope side and tighten them up and done. No need to remove the spare tire or anything else. Just lift it up and put the bolts in. Be sure to put a torque wrench on them because the recommend foot pounds is probably tighter than what you would guess just going by feel. I was intimidated by the wiring, going under the kick panel and everything. It turned out to be super easy. I mean like 5 minutes and you are done. Total plug and play. Watch the videos and you can't go wrong. It couldn't get much easier than this unless you have someone else do it.

Fast delivery! Quality build, packaging was good. No missing parts good instructions. Installation took about 30 minutes. Had a slight issue with one hole aligning but was resolved using a C clamp to align with a mild pressure.

Easy to install. Very well made. Best price around. Fast shipping

by:

It was delivered on time, installation went very smooth, I don't have a lift so I recommend using a floor jack with a 2x4 on it to hold the hitch in place and use a creeper to maneuver under the truck to install bolts. Took about 20 minutes. Also installed the wiring harness, no issues.

  • Curt Trailer Hitch vs. etrailer Trailer Hitch for 2020 Nissan Frontier
    There is a slight difference between the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98869 and Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13241 that fits your 2020 Nissan Frontier, which is the finish. The etrailer hitch has a rugged matte black finish which is really good at hiding any blemishes or scratches while the Curt has a glossy black finish. Apart from the finish, these two hitches are exactly the same, with the same capacities and installation. I have added a link to the installation instructions...

    I have a couple of recommendations for you that will have you towing in no time. Etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Matte Black Finish - Class III - 2" part # e98869 is my pick as far as hitches are concerned. It is a class 3 hitch offereing the 2"x2" receiver tube opening and offers a capacity higher than that of you truck.

  • Will the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver Work On a 2012 Nissan Frontier With 5K Trailer
    The etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98869 which is a fit for a 2012 Nissan Frontier is rated for 5,000 lbs or 8,000 lbs with weight distribution. If the trailer is under 5,000 lbs loaded then you will be fine without weight distribution but if it's over 5,000 lbs but not 8,000 lbs then you will need a weight distribution system. The Curt Hitch Class Comparison Chart states that class III hitches can be rated up to 8,000 lbs without weight distribution, not that all class III...

  • Hitch and Towing Accessories for 2019 Nissan Frontier
    We sure do! I'd recommend the etrailer brand Class III receiver hitch, part # e98869. To complete your towing setup, you'll also need a # 118525 trailer wiring harness to provide a 4 pole connector or # 118266 for a 7-way. For a ball mount, use the # 2923 and for a 1-7/8 inch trailer ball use # 19261 or # 63845 for a 2 inch ball. To see installation videos for the parts I recommended, click the provided links.
