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.

2011 Toyota RAV4

DID NOT FIT! Even though the website promised it would fit my 2011 toyota rav4, when the trailer hitch came, it did not fit. I tried for hours to line up the holes that you tighten the bolts through with the holes in the frame and they would not. My car has never been crashed and nothing is wrong with the frame. This means that the manufacturing of this product is so bad that it wouldn’t even fit my car. In the end, only 3 of the 5 bolts would fit in the trailer hitch, the remaining 2 would not fit because the holes to put them through the trailer hitch did not line up with the frame holes. We ended up having to buy a grinding tool set and grind the holes until they were far enough over to fit the bolt. Even doing this, only one of the missing bolts could fit, so I am left with a trailer hitch that only has 4 out of 5 bolts it needs to be attached due to some poor quality control. The photo I attached shows the misaligned hole in the trailer hitch. The bolt below it was the hole that we had to grind to expand in order for the bolt and the hole in the frame to line up.


Great product. It was as easy to install as was stated, IF, you have the proper tools and the car lift. I had to do it at ground level. It took me an additional 15 minutes to figure out how to do it right.

I had to lift the RAV4 about 6 inches to get under it with plenty of room. (See photos) I sprayed the bolt holes with WD-40 to ease the threading. I used two jack stands to steady the receiver. After inserting the first bolt, the rest went smooth. Glad I did it instead of paying the rv place to install it. I did have to trim the plastic cover on the driver's side before putting it back on.

I have an Intech Chase and pulled it up and down mountains without any issues to the receiver. I will check the torque on the bolts before headed out this years just fire pace of mind. Otherwise, still a great buy.

This whole process couldn't have been easier. I ordered the hitch and about an hour later ordered a bike rack to go into the hitch. An hour after that, I decided I wanted a 4 bike rack, instead of 2. Cathy T was super helpful in cancelling/placing my new order and knew exactly what she was talking about while suggesting the proper lock. Everything arrived right on time and was really easy to install. I do suggest using ramps to raise the vehicle a bit, although it wouldn't have been necessary. Also, it doesn't hurt to have a few cold beverages nearby, and a buddy to help when needed. Seriously though, this was pretty simple to do and it's going to be super functional and I think it even looks pretty good. The prices were fair, shipping was fast, install was easy, and Cathy T was great. A+ for everyone involved. Thanks!

Thanks for the follow up. Ive since traded that vehicle in and got a truck with a factory hitch. I was, and still am very happy with my experience with etrailer and will use your business again in the future.

2010 Toyota RAV4

You people have really got your act together. I think you have thought of everything in the installation of the hitches and your videos are extremely helpful. This is the 3rd hitch from etrailer I have installed, one for a brother in law, one for my daughter , and now one for me, and all were extremely easy and simple to install. If it wasn't for the corrosion in the bolt holes of my 11 year old Michigan Rav 4 that needed reaming out I think the hitch could have been installed in less than 15 minutes.
Great products, great price. and great service. I have and will continue recommending etrailer to anyone who is considering a hitch

My hitch is performing as it should. It allows me to haul my utility trailer around on my Toyota instead of my pick up saving me a considerable amount in gas. I am still recommending e trailer to anyone considering installing a trailer hitch as well as checking out the other items that are available. I never hesitate to mention the ease of installation. I also purchased and installed the trailer light wiring harness from e trailer and the video on the installation of that was also very helpful
Jack - 08/13/2022


Product was delivered damaged. Box used to ship the product via UPS was severely inadequate to protect the hitch. At 45 pounds the mounting brackets on both sides were protruding from the box. Found that brackets were bent and the hitch no longer lined up with the vehicle. Given the thickness of the steel, impossible to straighten out. Seems like UPS threw the package around instead of using the handles on the box... Only way brackets could have been bent.

Called etrailer and they immediately scheduled delivery of another hitch. Thank you etrailer!

I've purchase hitches for other vehicles from etrailer and have had no issues.

If you are having troubles with the holes not lining up, it could be that the hitch has been flexed during shipment. This is common amongst hitches, since the mounting brackets are made from a mild steel that allows the hitch to flex with the vehicle after installation. If the entire hitch was made of rigid steel, there would be a greater chance of the hitch being damaged and experiencing stress cracks. Such cracks could cause the hitch to malfunction. This flexing often times will cause the holes not to align. Because of this we do have a help article I have the link attached below that will walk you through the process of straightening the hitch.

2018 Toyota RAV4

I purchased this hitch for my 2018 RAV4. It was easy to install (you will need a second person to help hold it up while bolting it up). It fits well and does not get in the way of anything. I would highly recommend this hitch. I use it mainly to pull a small utility trailer. All in all, a very worthwhile purchase!


Really solid hitch. Just be prepared for the holes in the unit not to line up with the holes in your vehicle. You can’t bend this bad boy.
So, not an easy install. However it is solid.


Dear etrailer,
May I begin to say that
the moment I placed my order, in less than thirty minutes Herb ([email protected]) immediately wrote me back with a confirmation, tracking link, and a friendly thanks. Next, I watched the installation and wiring video twice that you provide on your website while waiting for the unit to arrive. Outstanding for I felt as if I had a personal teacher as I watched. I also found out by watching that I needed a tool to remove the rear door panel which I did not have. Again, nice job. It's always annoying when you find out as you are installing that you need some "special tool" if you know what I mean. So I went to my friendly Auto Zone and picked one up. I then watched as my new trailer hitch moved across the a few states to show up three days later at my door. The same day it arrived Patrick Breedlove wrote me an email stating I should have received the hitch and if there were any questions, give him a call. So, before even starting to install, I felt I had your company and the personnel covering my back. Because I watched the video, I literally installed the hitch in about 30 minutes. Then installed the custom wiring harness in about an hour for I wanted to make sure the power wire was secure and I had to lay on my the stones. Slowed me down a bit. So, may I say if there was a rating greater than "EXCELLENT", you would have it! Awesome people, product, and service!
God bless you all and keep it up!
Kirk C.

Can you believe that I received an email from a person at Etrailer asking if the Draw-Tite trailer hitch I purchased over a year ago is still performing to my satisfaction. Yes, it has been over a year since I installed my hitch on my Rav4. It has proven to be a very good product. No rust, no chipping, lights continue to work and the harness is durable. I would recommend this company and hitch to anyone considering one. Awesome company, service, and now follow up!
Kirk C - 02/21/2015

2007 Toyota RAV4

I haven't used it yet, so my review is based on shipping and mounting experience.

The hitch came in a torn box and the hitch doesn't have any additional packaging (like plastic wrap or whatever). Because of this the hitch got scratched during its transportation. So I had to buy paint and spray out damaged places to prevent rust.

The rack has pretty decent instructions on multiple languages, which is good and has all the necessary hardware.

During the mounting everything went pretty good, even though I was doing it alone. except for one hole. I don't know whether I did something wrong, or the geometry of the hitch wasn't perfect, or geometry of my car, but I struggled to align a mounting hole with a car hole to be able to secure with a bolt. And yes, I tried to lose other bolts to adjust the position, but it didn't help.

Also since my car is pretty old, I had to repair threads in advance, to avoid problems during the actual installation. I would recommend that everybody should try to use a bolt without the hitch to check a thread in every hole before installation.

Long story short - it is a decent hitch for the price. The steel is thick and painted very well. 4 stars just for packaging and my straggling with 1 bolt

Its been a year since I installed the hitch, and I must admit that I am pretty happy with it. No rust, works like a charm!

2016 Toyota RAV4

I ordered the Draw-Tite hitch receiver primarily for a bike rack. The receiver is for a 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid. I was concerned that the receiver might not fit on my vehicle because the vehicle is a new year and model, but the receiver fit perfectly. I was also concerned that the receiver would detract from the rear look of the vehicle because it is not a factory hitch receiver, but the receiver looks great - actually better than I anticipated. I am very pleased with the receiver and with etrailer in general. Etrailer's customer service is top-notch.

Thanks for the follow up. The hitch is still great.
Darin S - 03/12/2017


the mounting holes on my car are rusted. I used a 12mm 1.25 tap
At first I thought to return, but everything turned out to be fixed. installation time 20 minutes.

2017 Toyota RAV4

My experience with was great. Ordering the hitch was very easy since etrailer posts lots of info, specs, reviews, and video on their site. The hitch arrived very quickly. The installation went smoothly. It's really a two person job to get the hitch situated. It's not too heavy just awkward. I contacted tech support for ideas on how to salvage-modify the drivers side panel that the instructions say to 'return to customer'. Jared P sent me some ideas and my results photos are shown below. It looks pretty good. It's always a pleasure to buy from a 'customer-centric' company. Keep up the good work!

So, it’s a year later and the hitch looks great. I checked the bolt torque on all of the attachment bolts are they’re still snug. The hitch looks great. All’s well.

2012 Toyota RAV4

Product is as advertised! Very pleased especially liked the heavier tongue and towing limits. I put this on by myself laying on the ground in about 35 minutes. Easy. We use this for a bike rack on a 2012 Rav4 limited. Package arrived as promised undamaged. Thanks.

Follow up...Never had an issue with this hitch. Traded this vehicle and ordered another hitch for the replacement vehicle.
Per - 04/25/2022


Instructions and video are very good.
installed it by myself. Went smoothly and easily. The directions say the bolts are 19mm but they were actually 18mm which was great because I didn’t have a 19mm socket. The main reasons I bought this brand/model was because of the maximum tongue weight , where the tow chains connect to (not right under hitch pin) and it reuses the tow hook attachment.

It has been one year since I installed the hitch. I use it on my 2013 Toyota RAV4 for a cargo hitch to haul my snow blower to my parents and in-laws house when it snows. It works as it should and still looks great!

2007 Toyota RAV4

Great product, great price. Bolted to a 2007 Rav4, pulls a double PWC trailer. We also use it for a hitch bike rack. It adds a lot of versatility to our vehicle.


Last year we purchased the Draw-Tite MaxFrame 75235 for our 2018 Toyota RAV 4. The product bas lived up to its expectations and some. No need for customer service because the product quality is spot on. I highly recommend etrailer to anyone wanting quality products.
Jerry in California.


Price from was fair, shipping was fast and the hitch feels like it was built like for a tank.

Weve had the hitch on our RAV4 for a year now. It has worked perfectly and still looks brand new. If I need a trailer hitch for a different vehicle, Im ordering from!

2017 Toyota RAV4

All I can say, is WOW. This hitch is outstanding quality for a more than reasonable price. Very solid and easy to install. Total install time was less than 30mins. I used a strong cardboard box to help leverage the hitch while i secured the bolts in place. +1 for having online video to help facilitate in quick and easy install.

Still awesome, no problems at!!! Wouldnt buy from anyone else.

Volvo Cross Country

I originally bought this product for my move cross country but decided to just load up the essentials in my car and ship the rest out later instead of hauling a trailer. Pros I can definitely say about this hitch: Easy assembly!
I did this all by myself after watching the installation video and referencing it a few times after. Same with the wiring system. I would recommend if you have someone to help you, it goes faster. I was under the SUV holding one end up with my legs and hips while my arms fastened the other end because I was by myself. It's definitely easier if you have someone else to hold up the other side while you work. Honestly I think the hardest or most time consuming part was tearing apart the inside of my car in order to access the hook ups by my brake lights for the wiring system to hook up.
The few times I tested it and practiced driving and parking with it with one of my dad's trailers, it's definitely sturdy and handles weight well although I did notice that the heavier the trailer when it hits pot holes or uneven places in roads it jerks the car quite a bit. Then again I wasn't on the freeway with it at the time, but more back roads and less well kept than a main freeway or highway. Even on the curves of the roads though, not much sway side to side which was nice to notice, especially with a long trailer.
I would love to get more opportunities to use it especially for moving or trip purposes.

2009 Toyota RAV4

Fulfillment of my order for a "Class III Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch" was exemplary. Delivery of order was three (3) days ahead of original date. I took advantage of the low price matching guarantee and was rewarded with a 110% of difference refund. Knowing that I don't have to worry about getting the lowest price for an item, will have me doing more business with etrailer. I had some load questions which were promptly answered leading me to a decision on my purchase. Service, prompt delivery, and low price guarantee....what more can you want?

2007 Toyota RAV4

Could not have been better. All mounting holes lined up "round" and was easy to mount on my 07 Rav4. Not my first order with e trailer, not my last.

Toyota RAV4

At a very reasonable price point, the Draw-Tite trailer hitch meets expectations. Thanks to, the installation was seamless. The hitch is mainly used with a Yakima bicycle rack. Installed on a RAV4, the black hitch paint color and position make it aesthetically appealing and somewhat stealthy. I suppose it also helps that the color of my vehicle is black.

After 3 years exposed to all seasons, there are signs of rust around the hitch receiver. Having the car parked on my driveway, exposed to the elements along with salted NY/NJ roads - perhaps the most logical explanation. Regardless, the unit still performs well.


My DrawTite hitch arrived early 9/6/2018. The box and hitch were fine. I am a senior citizen and usually attempt DIY installations but I know that a lift would be the easiest method for installation. I took my RAV4 and hitch to my local tire / auto maintenance shop for the install. A Youtube video for the 2018 Toyota RAV4 was very helpful and easy to follow. It took less than 15 minutes with a little help from me installing the bolts while the auto mechanic held the hitch in place. Everything went well. For product … I rate it a 5 (great quality) … price also a 5 (excellent price) … We’ll be using the hitch for our bicycle rack.
Chuck S.


Great product with a great price! The 675 lbs tongue weight is a blessing. Much beefier then the other Class 3 hitch offerings offered here. I used to have a U-Haul class 3 hitch but it wasn’t up to the task with my set up. I upgraded to this one for the extra tongue weight rating to carry my spare tire and Wilco rack, and to also tow occasionally. This hitch is very strong, does not flex and has lasted two winters now with no rust or corrosion around the bolts. Easy to install and looks great when done :)

2018 Toyota RAV4

Like many other reviews state, the holes did not all line up with my vehicle. (see photo) I had to attempt to install and remove the hitch three times, using a hydraulic jack and some 2x4’s to spread attachment points apart about half an inch to get all the holes to finally line up. It would seem they just slap these together and throw them out the door with zero quality control.

Trailer hitch manufacturers construct hitch arms out of a mild steel, which allows the hitch to flex. This is important so that the hitch can move with the rest of your vehicle without the steel cracking and compromising the integrity of the hitch. Because of the design, the hitch arms can also flex a bit in shipping and warehousing. Using a jack and some wood pieces is a great way to correct the flex in a trailer hitch. I have linked a help article with some additional tips.

  • Difficulty of Installation of Class III Draw-Tite 75235 on a 2012 Toyota Rav4
    As rated by our manufactures the difficulty level of the Class III Draw-Tite # 75235 hitch install is a 3 out of 10, which is low.

  • Installing Trailer Hitch On 2012 Toyota RAV4 When Brackets Do Not Line Up With Vehicle Frame
    At times when shipped, the mounting brackets on a trailer hitch will shift a little and need to be coaxed for alignment. Unfortunately there is no easy way to align the holes. Our installers will use a small rod to insert through the hole in the bracket and line it up with the mating hole on the vehicle frame.

  • Installing Trailer Hitch on 2017 Toyota RAV4 SE Model
    According to the online owner's manual for your 2017 Toyota RAV4, it is not recommended for vehicle models with the SE grade to have a trailer hitch installed. It states that neither towing or using a hitch for accessories like bike racks or cargo carriers is recommended as simply stated, the vehicle is not designed for this. While I cannot be sure of Toyota's exact reasoning for this restriction, based on my research it looks like it may have to do with the slightly different suspension...

  • Recommended Class III Trailer Hitch For 2014 Honda CR-V
    Your Honda CR-V has a 1500 lb towing capacity and 150 lb tongue weight capacity. There is really only one scenario I can think of where a class III hitch like the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 75235 would be required for that tongue weight. That is if you plan to use a certain style of cargo carrier or bike rack. Many of these carriers require a 2 inch hitch, but not all.
