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.

Very solid hitch. It took me about 1.5 hours to install. The biggest problem is getting the bolts out, they are pretty tough to get out. One thing I would highly recommend, it is something they tell you to do, but I did not do a good job of it and it cost me an extra 1/2 hour. Clean out the threads before installing the 8 bolts. I did not do a good job and the bolts would not go in all the way. I took them back out, cleaned the threads and the bolts went in without a problem. Now a quick review of etailer.com: You rock! My hitch showed up with damage that was caused from shipping, the box was all ripped apart and the hitch was bent. After a quick email and a very fast response, the new hitch was on the way. Less than 48 hours later the new hitch was at my door. Thank You etrailer.com keep up the Great Work!!!

Things are still going great. Once again I would highly recommend etrailer. After 1 year of use it has been flawless. Thank You!!!

AS far as the product, first impressions are great! Bought this as a gift for my dad and his '19 Chevy Colorado. I purchase this and the wiring harness. Awaiting until Christmas for an install. My only complaint was the shipping. My wife and I have had too many issues with UPS in the pass and the delivery of these items were no different. Although the items showed up early, I can't get over UPS lying stating a delivery attempt was made. I have Ring video of the time they are stating that says otherwise. Then once the items finally arrived the next day, the box containing the harness was fine but the hitch looks as if it had been dragged around and dropped. You can see from the pictures that the wrapping isn't sufficient to protect it from drops. So, as I said, I would look into shipping with someone else.

The hitch didn't have a bracket to bolt the support from the spare tire carrier cross member to the hitch. Other than that it bolted to the frame perfectly and fits fine

The part came wrapped in plastic with no box but was in good condition. The hardest part of the installation was removing the factory hitch components. I used Jack stands to hold the rear bumper in place, removed the screws from the old hitch and wiggled the old part out. Lying on my back under the back of the truck the new part was light enough I could lift the new part in place and start a bolt to hold in place. I broke a 1/2" breaker bar removing the old bolts manually so if you have impact tools it'll save lots of sweat. Fits well and looks good and rugged.

The hitch lined up perfectly with the frame. I did have to open the hanging brackets with a 2 pound hammer in order for them to slide onto the frame. I suppose they bent a little during shipping. The videos were excellent source material.

The hitch arrived on time. The hitch was of better quality than I expected. The only problem was damage in shipping. The box had been torn completely open and then taped shut. The top mounting ears were bent in and had to be bent back before it could be installed. I wonder why the top rear tire bracket had to be discarded. Overall very happy with the hitch.

Mounting brackets are off 1/4inch at top. Had to bend them out to get into truck.


Comments
Hi Matthew, Thanks for your feedback! The ears on the hitch can flex during shipping as they are made out of mild steel. They can be flexed back into position like you did in order to install the hitch. I have attached a helpful article that shows some ways to reflex the hitch.

Box was damaged and after taking out crossmember was thinking not going to fit. After measuring and looking at hitch figured out what the problem was. Hitch was bent so after a hour of pounding with a hammer it bolted right up. Tough time getting the bumper to tighten back up. 4 hours later it’s done

My first order was supposed to arrive in 4-6 days. After 4 days I looked and noticed that it would not arrive for another 15-20 days. I called and etrailer was nice enough to ship out a different brand trailer hitch that was in stock and would fit. It arrived in 2 days. I'm thankful they did that, but it would not have happened if I did not specifically call and find out the issue. Happy with the product though.

Truck did not come with a decent hitch. The etrailer hitch met my needs to be able to tow my camper easily. The installation was exactly like the video that was prepared by etrailer employees. It was easy once the original bolts were removed. Better than an original hitch from the factory. Hitch was tweaked by delivery and etrailer staff provided excellent ideas to help me straighten the hitch so it fit perfectly. Great support after the sale.

I was very pleased with the way I was treated with my recent order with etrailer. I have not installed my receiver hitch as of yet but it looks pretty straight away and with the help of the videos I see no problems at all



- e98909

Hitch is a beast but poor packing caused the powder coating to wear off to bare metal in several places. I used some fegukar spray paint to cover to help prevent rust. Rather disappointed since I wanted powder coat to prevent rusting

Excellent quality and fitment. The install video provided made the work very easy with clear step by step process. Hitch is perfect solution for my use for occasional towing. The factory setup on my Colorado did not include a frame mounted hitch receiver, only a bumper ball mount. This hitch allows for a more secure, safe load at full capacity of my truck. I like the design that keeps the hitch bar hidden behind the bumper, but allows for easy access to the receiver and a flat bottom safety chain plate.

This was the most thoroughly wrapped package I think I have ever received. It took me 10 minutes to remove all the tape and padding and I'm not complaining. I appreciate the effort someone in the shipping department put into this!

I got my hitch fast. I decided not to upload photos because there is nothing to see. The hitch mounts snug against the bumper and is just like the factory. Nothing hangs down unsightly like the otHer add-ons. Everything slid into place exactly as the instructions and video showed. Even though I didn't have any help, fancy tools, and just had a floor jack and a couple of stands (no lift), and I am a 69 yr old retired electrical engineer, I proved that this hitch can be installed with one person, although it would have been faster with a helper. Oh, and this is the first hitch I have ever installed. My 2018 Chevy Colorado looks very nice. The electrical connector looks great also. Nothing much to say except if I ever need a hitch for another vehicle, I'm ordering from etrailer. THANK YOU, etrailer. Keep up the great work. By the way, also being a hobby welder, I really appreciate the nice looking welds on this hitch. Can you tell, I REALLY like this hitch !



- e98909

Awesome well built hitch, came in really fast to. On a side note GM used red thread locker when they put the bolts in from the factory and that was the hardest part was getting the 4 bolts out to put the new hitch in.

Not to happy about how the hitch was packaged. By the time I received it the wrapping material was ripped, I'm sure during shipping, and paint was rubbed off down to bare metal in areas. I'll need to touch up those areas. Happy about quick shipment and overall satisfied with the hitch.

This hitch fit like a glove on our 2021 Chevy Colorado. Build quality is excellent. I definitely recommend watching the video by Brian before you get started, it's very helpful. Shipping was fast, received the order 2 days after it was placed. etrailer.com is highly recommended.

Installed exactly like it did in the video. looks great.

While seemingly well built, this hitch assembly needed several 'adjustments' involving a 3-lb hammer and a rat-tail file to complete. The vertical supports were about 3/8" too close together and so did not slide into place around the frame. That is where the 3-lb hammer came into play. After getting the unit properly positioned it was discovered that one of the holes (driver side, upper, forward) was just far enough out of sync with the frame that we had to auger it out a bit before it would slide in enough for the threads to catch. If this is typical of these units, I suggest that you alter your video instructions. It took three of us about three hours to finally get everything in place and secure.

Received hitch today, box was split open on end but hitch looks perfect. Looks like box split open simply because hitch is very heavy, no wonder box split open. Paint on hitch not even scratched, looks like it was loaded coated. Will install when it's warmer out.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2020 Chevy Colordao
    I recommend the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98909 for your 2020 Chevy Colorado for a few reasons; it features a hidden crosstube so that only the receiver is visible and then it has a matte black finish which not only makes it look more durable than a glossy finish, but it also plays the part as it does a better job of covering up any dings from road debris. Since you will be using this for towing you also need the Wiring Kit # HM11141144 as well as a ball mount. For the ball...

  • Differences Between etrailer Brand and Curt Trailer Hitches for 2020 Chevy Colorado
    The differences between the Curt # C13203 and the etrailer branded # e98909 are primarily cosmetic. Both hitches would be mainly concealed behind the bumper, with only the receiver tube and the safety chain hooks being visible. The Curt uses a round tube crossbar with a glossy finish, the etrailer brand hitch uses a square crossbar with a matte finish. The cosmetic appearance really won't matter much as most of the hitch is concealed anyway. The Curt hitch has s higher capacity than...

  • Parts Needed to Tow a 5.5K Trailer with a 2018 Chevy Colorado
    I took a look at the online owner's manual for your 2018 Chevy Colorado and it looks like as long as you have the 3.6L V6 (not the ZR2) then you definitely can safely tow up to a 7K trailer. With that being said, there are a few things to note; like how much weight you have in the pickup, if the 5,500 lbs for the trailer is GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating) or if that's the dry weight, and that you'll need both a brake controller and a weight distribution system.

If you're planning on towing a small utility trailer and your Canyon didn't come with a factory 7-Way, you'll also need to install a trailer wiring harness.
