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.


etrailer.com Technical Support

Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch.

Product is solid and arrived very quickly. I'm satisfied with the purchase overall, but fishing wires should be longer. Other reviews mentioning how these are too short are extremely accurate. It's almost impossible to pull the blot through with this line without removing your bumper on a 2003 Ford Escape (which has no heat shield to remove and modify btw). I had to use pliers to twist two of the fishing lines together to make feeding the bolt through manageable. Bottonline is that the hitch is great, but the included fishing lines should be longer to make installation easier for the consumer.

Shipped quickly. The install went very smoothly. I did get a pleasant surprise with this unit. Our Mazda Tribute had the factory 1 and 1/4 inch receiver installed so I thought I would need to remove it before installing this 2 inch. The instruction sheet showed installing the 2 inch under the factory hitch and that made the install process much easier. Also the kit included the 7/16" bolt leader (4 ea) so I didn't really need to purchase the one I bought with the unit. The hitch looks and works great.

I purchased my hitch and it arrived in the time frame that was estimated on their site. The printed instructions are the only part of the packaging that was disappointing, as the print was small and the diagrams were very light and not easy to read. I gave up on the paper and went to YouTube where i found an extremely helpful video for a 2002 Ford Escape. I did the install myself and it took about an hour. Otherwise the hitch is a homerun and I'm very pleased with your product and service. I would highly recommend your company to anyone in the market for a hitch. Thank you!

This is a great product, it is well made and fits perfectly. My order arrived in good time and everything was in good condition. The installation is fairly easy, the hardest part was fish wiring the bolts and plates into the frame. On my Ford Escape, the rear bumper is very close to the end of the frame so there is not much room to work with. Once the bolts were in place, it was easy. I ordered the wiring kit and that was a simple installation. One tip for the wiring kit - don't read the instructions that come with it, instead watch the video on this website, it is much clearer and easier. I did order 2 locking hitch pins and they both came with the same key number, which is great. Either the person picking the order made sure they were both the same key or we just got lucky! If you want a good quality hitch at a great price, you can't go wrong with this one. It looks great on the car and we are already towing the boat with it.

For how much it cost, I cant complain. There are some areas where it is starting to rust and the paint is starting to wear on some areas, but Ive definitely put it through a lot. I live primarily in the colder regions of Idaho Im constantly moving and up here the roads always need to be salted and covered with cinders, which is pretty rough on everything, but its handling it about how Id expect it too.

This is a very nice hitch and was easy to install. The instructions were pretty clear. The bolt furthest from the frame opening was a bit tough to feed through with the short wire they provide, but otherwise this was straightforward to do.

Intend this for my "03 Ford Escape Delivery was quick - and free. The hitch is solid. Problem is...the "receiver" is 2" and the bar and ball saved from my older Escape is Inch and a quarter (or is it inch and a half?) Yes, there is a 2" bar - but it's over $40 plus shipping. I wish this had been clear when I ordered.

We do indeed mention several times on the product description page that this hitch features a 2 inch receiver opening.

Ordered this hitch for my 2003 ford Escape. Placed order Sunday eve standard shipping and received wed. Very happy with the product. Drove the rear wheels up on ramps and installed in about 35 min. Slightly difficult by myself but is possible if you hold one side with you foot! I ordered the bolt guide wire which was to lose but twisted it to tighten the spring end so there was no chance of the carriage bolt getting stuck. The wiring loom was plug and play. Whole install hitch and wiring took 1 hour with the help of you tube video.

Very easy to install and works great. I put this on a 2004 Ford Escape without any issues. Shipping from etrailer was very quick with excellent communication throughout the process.

Fit perfectly, you can do it by yourself but would of been a little easier if I had someone holding up other side of hitch when putting in place. Fishing wire for bolts was not included, ended up using stripped thermostat wire instead and worked great. They do sell the fishing wire needed.

Delivery was extremely fast! The installation videos made this install literally about a 30 minute process or less.

The shipping was very prompt and the product was as described. I also bought the fish wire which saved my life...couldn't have done it without them. Also bought the OEM light kit and that was a breeze to install. One of the bolts/nuts was a bit of a pain, but that will happen. Overall I would recommend this product and etrailer.com

Service from etrailer.com was beyond EXCELLENT. I received notice of shipment within hours of placing the order. They even upgraded the shipping to 3-5 days without any extra cost. I ordered the entire installation kit... hitch, receivers and wiring for my 2004 Ford Escape. The hitch installation was a bit on the tricky side only because you have to fish the bolts up through the frame. Once they were in place bolting up the hitch itself was a piece of cake. 5 stars for customer service.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2003 Ford Escape
    I do have a solution for you, however the 90635 trailer hitch you mentioned is a Hidden Hitch product that is no longer in production. For your 2003 Ford Escape, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75118. Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch were/are owned by the same parent company, so this hitch is very similar and will install in the same manner on your vehicle.

  • What Tool Should be Used to Trim the Heat Shield for Trailer Hitch Install on a 2001 Ford Escape
    Trimming the heat shield to install a trailer hitch on your 2001 Ford Escape does not require a special tool. If you have some tin snips/aviator sheers that is all you will need. If you do not have any you can get some pretty cheap at a hardware store or you might be able to borrow some from an auto parts store or any place that loans out tools. Maybe a neighbor has some you could borrow since these are common tools. I have linked the instructions and a video that shows a typical installation...

  • Will Draw-Tite Class III Hitch 75118 Fit with Factory Installed Hitch?
    No, you will not have to remove your existing OEM hitch/bumper, see sheet 2 of instructions (linked below). You will be required to remove the heat shield and trim it somewhat with tin snips. You will also have to drill a hole on both sides of the frame rail. The instructions also warn not to use both hitches at the same time to prevent damage to the vehicle. You may need a ball mount, pin and clip to complete your hitch setup and I have posted links to these items for you below.
