Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite's Tested Tough program provides testing standards far superior to those outlined by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the go-to source for engineering professionals.

Each Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver undergoes extensive fatigue testing and static testing with the ball mount that is either supplied or recommended for use with that particular hitch, thus ensuring results that are applicable to real life use. Fatigue testing is also conducted on hitches rated for use with weight-distribution systems.

In addition, Draw-Tite performs static testing on a simulated automobile, as opposed to the rigid fixture used for SAE testing, resulting in a more true-to-life scenario. Technical Support

At we're committed to the products we sell, and to our customers. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch. The technicians at etrailer perform hitch installations on a daily basis, making them a valuable resource for do-it-yourselfers. The one-on-one, personal service you'll receive comes straight from an expert in the towing and automotive field. We've installed it, we've wired it and we've towed with it, so whatever your question, we can answer it.

This is a great hitch! I have had it for a year now and it has worked well for us. It was easy to install; no cutting or drilling was required. I only needed a few hand tools and it took about 30 minutes. I use it primarily for a rear bike rack to carry bikes to the trail head. I recommend it highly.


I use all the time to order trailer hitch receivers for a variety of vehicles. The hitch receivers are delivered promptly and in good condition.


Good quality. Once the exhaust was dropped down it was easy to install. Definitely helps to have a second person to align and hold the hitch receiver while the nuts are started on the bolts.


Box arrived damaged and the paint is already chipping off on the hitch.

2023 Subaru Crosstrek

This hitch perfectly fits my 2023 Subaru Crosstrek Premium even though I ordered the unit sized for a 2018, which I also own (& have this identical hitch mounted on) This hitch is perfect for a small utility trailer, but I use them for bike a carrier & a cargo platform. Installation is easy but I diverge from the instructions by dismounting the muffler rather than lowing the tail pipe. It can be a one-person install, but some wood blocks come in handy to hold the hitch in an elevated position when installing the nuts on the bolts.

2009 Subaru Legacy

Quality product, quick shipping, and good customer service! The box was missing the pin/ clip for the hitch and customer service handled the issue professionally and processed a replacement the following day. Install was straight forward with the provided instructions. A strap to hold the dual exhaust out of the way on my 09 Subaru Legacy sedan really helped with a jack stand as extra support. As others have mentioned a second set of hands to hold the bar in place while inserting the mounting bolts was quite necessary. Looks great on my vehicle and worked like a charm. Towed a 5' x 8' cargo trailer across the country MA to Co and back without issue. Makes it easy to couple or uncouple so you can be on your way at a moment's notice. Thank you etrailer!

2023 Subaru Crosstrek

My hitch fit perfectly and installation went well. Great video that guided me step by step. Definitely needed a buddy to help lift and hold the hitch in place. The only time things went off course was when I didn’t follow the steps and removed the fish wire. Had to go ‘fishing’ for the chassis bolts with two magnet pick up tools and then things were back on track.



So far after a year the hitch works flawlessly!


Good description of the install. The exhaust on the 2023 is slightly different but still good description. I did this on the floor of my garage by myself and used straps to hold the hitch in place so I could align and bolt down. My only question is regarding the center hole that is not used but we still pull the plug. I siliconed around the hitch before it was fully bolted down.

I checked and the center hole that you are seeing in the frame is not used. Just the rear and forward holes are used. It is ok that the plug was removed from the middle hole.



Great....easy hook up, no rattles.


It's rather straight forward to install. It took me about an hour and removing the muffler is a must. It's easier than it sounds. Fish wire is supplied to install the bolts and brackets in the frame rails. The fitment is perfect and it doesn't look big and obvious. The only difficult part was lifting the hitch up to the car and installing the nuts and washers. If you have someone to help, I'm sure it would go a tad quicker.

Aj M.


Its been a year since Ive had the hitch. We went on a 5500 miles road trip and attached a cargo carrier with 150lbs+ of camping equipment. It worked really well and made travelling so easy! All while remaining rather inconspicuous when not being used.

2023 Subaru Crosstrek

With a little gumption and redneck ingenuity you can make this a solo project. It took me about an hour to install with about 4-5 F-bombs along the way. I do wish the bolts for the spacer holes were a half inch longer but I managed. Good luck, you got this.

2019 Subaru Crosstrek

This is a heavy duty hitch. Husband only fussed a little installing it. He did not drop the exhaust as the directions suggested to do, so I guess it would have been easier if he did that. Looks great on my 2019 Subaru Crosstrek.

Tracy T.


Still as good as new

2024 Subaru Crosstrek

Nice quick shipping, the box looked like it was hit by a bomb but the hitch seems to look ok. Thanks for the great service!


Fast delivery, super easy installation!

2018 Subaru XV Crosstrek

Thanks for the great product! Here is the review I submitted and a few photos:

Amazing product! I was a little skeptic when I found this hitch online for such a low price. But after reading the reviews and watching the installation video I figured I’d give it a chance. Product shipped right away and I received it sooner than expected. I had no problems installing the unit on my 2018 Crosstrek. This thanks to the engineering and craftsmanship that went into producing this product. I did not use a lift and installed the hitch by myself. There is plenty of clearance that you do not need a lift but an I would recommend having a second pair of hands. I improvised by using blocks to shim one side while I worked on the other. I also considered trying to leave the muffler in place but it was quickly obvious that it needed to be removed. Again I was amazed with the detail that went into design as everything fit into place with no drilling or cutting required. Installed on Friday, loaded bikes on Saturday morning for the first of many biking adventures to come.


Fit perfectly on my 2019 Subaru Crosstrek. Easy installation. Had to remove muffler. No big deal, two bolts. Great installation kit. Mounted my USA1 bike carrier. Can barely see it when bike carrier is not in place. Saved money$$$

2022 Subaru Crosstrek

This is the 4th hitch I've bought from etrailer and all of them have been custom fit and went on very easily. The latest was put on a 2022 Subaru CrossTrek Sport primarily for use of a bike rack. We can also pull a motorcycle trailer or light cargo trailer with it. I've put hitches on two different Mazda3s, a BMW 335ix (that was TIGHT!!!!) and the Subaru and all fit perfectly. The service, products and prices from etrailer are fantastic!

2019 Subaru Crosstrek

The trailer hitch was fine and installed as expected. I will be using it with a bike rack. The packaging was damaged but no damage to the hitch. Customer service worked with me on the damaged packaging and there were no issues.

2018 Subaru XV Crosstrek

Installed the hitch on a 2018 Crosstrek, video instructions were very good, the kit was excellent, everything fit where it was supposed to be. Installed the hitch without help, Used jackstands to support it while I started in the nuts. Very easy to install, no modifications needed.

2021 Subaru Crosstrek

I took the muffler off as it helped give me more room to put the hitch on. The instructions and videos are very good. The rear bolts are a little short and getting the nut to start threading was tough. It would be great if the rear bolts were about 1/2" longer. With the frame sealant and the shims it was a bit tough to get the nuts on

2018 Subaru Crosstrek

I ordered this hitch on a Wednesday and it came to the house in three days and was on the car that Friday evening. Everything I have ordered from has been good quality. This hitch fit like it was supposed to and was relatively easy to put on the car. Good people to do business with.

Subaru XV Crosstrek

The hitch fits our Subaru Crosstrek well and looks good!


Hitch works fine, install was straight forward. However, when it arrived the black paint was already chipped in multiple spots and now a year in rust is starting to form. I would suggest if you end up getting this be prepared to sand and repaint before installing it.


A rare actual fit. Make and model specific that actually bolted in as intended. It was easier to unbolt the muffler than to drop the exhaust as per the directions. Install time was as expected. Highly recommended.



The fit was perfect so there has been no issues. Installation was simple.

  • Comparing Curt and Draw Tite Class II Hitch That Fits 2024 Subaru Crosstrek
    The Curt hitch part # C12184 that you mentioned is the better option for your 2024 Subaru Crosstrek and what I would recommend. The big difference is that the hitch opening is attached to the bottom of the hitch crosstube which allows it the be a lot more hidden once installed. This means that only the hitch opening hangs below the bumper instead of the Draw Tite part # 36644 which has the entire crosstube hanging below the bumper as well. The Curt also has a shorter install time listed...

  • Trailer Hitches that Fit 2020 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid
    We have a 1-1/4 inch hitch that fits the hybrid models of the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek like with the Draw Tite part # 36644 or the totally hidden EcoHitch part # 306-X7365 but the Curt you mentioned does not fit your vehicle.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Options for 2020 Subaru Crosstrek
    The trailer hitches are finished with a durable powder coating. The Curt and Draw-Tite hitches are welded together from tube stock and flat steel that are very similar. In my opinion, Curt does a tiny bit better job with their powder coat application. When given the choice, I always recommend using a Class Ill hitch because there's a much greater selection of hitch mounted accessories available for the more common 2 inch Class III receiver. Although the Curt # C13382 and Draw-Tite # 76209...

  • Is Draw-Tite Hitch Hidden Like Curt Hitch for 2020 Subaru Crosstrek
    The hidden design of the Curt hitch # C12184 is very appealing and since Draw-Tite actually doesn't have a hidden crosstube design for your 2020 Subaru Crosstrek I definitely recommend going with it over the Draw-Tite # 36644. Curt has a great reputation when it comes to trailer hitches and we have actually found that their hitches tend to have better welds and a thicker powder coat which combined means they hold up better than the Draw-Tite versions. I would like to point out that the...

  • Ground Clearance Comparison of Draw-Tite and Curt Trailer Hitch Receivers on 2018 Subaru Impreza
    The Curt Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11465, the Draw-Tite Class I Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT24959, and Draw-Tite Class II Trailer Hitch Receiver # 36644 are all within roughly a 1/4inch of ground clearance when installed on your 2018 Subaru Impreza. Due to that I recommend the Draw-Tite Class II Trailer Hitch Receiver # 36644 which is a stronger trailer hitch receiver capable of a maximum tongue weight of 350lbs, and a maximum trailer weight of 3500lbs.

  • Hitch With Most Ground Clearance for 2020 Subaru Impreza
    When the Draw-Tite Class II # 36644 is installed on a 2020 Subaru Impreza, you'll have right at 14-1/2 inches of ground clearance under the hitch, which better than any of the other hitches we offer for that vehicle, and is excellent for a vehicle of that type. Ten to 12 inches is about average for a smaller car like the Impreza, so 14-1/2 is pretty good. If you'll be using the hitch for towing, you'll need a few other items to complete your towing system. for a trailer wiring harness,...

  • Will There be Ground Clearance Issues with Installing Draw Tite Hitch 36644 on 2018 Subaru Impreza
    We haven't had any ground clearance issues with any of the trailer hitches we offer for your 2018 Subaru Impreza including the Draw Tite part # 36644 that you mentioned. When we installed the 2 inch hitch part # 76209 on a 2018 Impreza like yours we found that it had 10 inches from the top of the hitch opening down to the ground when installed. So from the bottom of the smaller hitch size to the ground would be right at 8-1/2 inches. Which doesn't seem like a lot, but since the rear axle...

The lowest point of both hitches is actually the outside "wings" and not the receiver tube. Both of them are the same at about 10-1/2 inches from the mounting locations. The measurement at the reveiver tubes are about 1/2 an inch difference with the Class II, part...

Unless you already have a bike rack with a 1-1/4" shank, it's likely going to serve you better over the long term to go with the 2" receiver # 76209 since it will give you more options to choose from when it comes to bike racks and also other hitch mounted accessories.
