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

At etrailer.com 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.

This hitch was a perfect fit. I use it for a cargo carrier and a bike rack. The instructions made it easy and were very well written. I would definitely recommend the hitch for anyone that wants to install on an Acura RDX.


Comments
One year later and still perfect. I added the wiring kit to be able to pull a small trailer with lights and that was just as easy to install as the hitch.

After a recommendation from Greg M, I purchased this Hitch for my Allen Deluxe 4 Bike Hanging rack to replace a 1 1/4" Class I Acura OEM hitch. Exactly what I needed for my 2019 Acura RDX.

The ordering and delivery process was professional and efficient. It's a bit on the pricier side but then again it's for a 2020 model vehicle. The shop that I went to was able to complete installation within 20 minutes.

Quality trailer hitch and excellent fit. Would recommend etrailer for excellent service and fast delivery. The worst part of the installation was lowering my exhaust system. Took a little longer laying on my back on the garage floor.

Love etrailer for vehicle specific hardware and loads of information. The installation of the trailer hitch went pretty well on my 2020 RDX. The most difficult part for me was to undo the exhaust system mounts to lower the exhaust and then to re-attach them. It helps tremendously to spray silicon on the rubber mounts before removing them.

I'm giving 5 stars because of the fit and the confidence that I have with this receiver. My Acura dealer wanted in excess of 600 for a receiver that had less towing specifications. Thus I purchased from etrailer. I installed it myself but I ran into some problems. First of all, I recommend getting a muffler hanging support remover. Removed the hangers quickly. I happen to have a torque wrench. Also, I didn't need to lift the car. Next, install and uninstall a bolt into each threaded receptacle underneath the car so that when the bolts go in permanently, they go in smoothly. This is important. I removed only the hangers from the front and back of the left muffler. Didn't see a need to support the hanging muffler. Remove the Tail pipe cover. Gives a bit more room to maneuver. Note that this receiver is heavy and clumsy. As recommended in another review, have someone pull the left muffler away and get the upper flange of the receiver above both mufflers. Note that I also have a floor jack which supported and raised the receiver. It will then rest on the top of the mufflers so that you can then position for bolting. The receiver is a very tight fit especially when lining up the bolts. The first three bolts went in okay but the forth (right side front) went in slightly crooked and messed up the receiving threads. Remember as I stated in the beginning, put the bolt in and remove so that it will go in smoothly for final installation. Fortunately the instructions had the bolt specifications and I was able to borrow a tap from a nearby auto parts store and straighten out the threads. Torqued it down and it's very tight. The receiver sticks out about 2.5 inches from the bumper which actually is good as it gives me some extra space to mount my 50+ pound electric bike from behind the bike rack. Driving is solid and I have full confidence with this receiver.

Excellent hitch for my 2019 Acura RDX. While the RDX can only tow up to 1500 pounds (with 150 pound tongue weight), I opted for the more powerful hitch for safety/quality since I plan to haul electric bikes on a heavy-duty bike rack. Great purchase.

I bought this hitch and SARIS bike rack from etrailer so I could mount two bikes on my 2019 Acura RDX. I had a local muffler shop install the hitch, as I didn't have proper tools. it took them 30 mins and $95. Hitch is solid! Looking forward to many years of adventuring! Many thanks, etrailer!

Great product and easy installation. The only issue I had was when the hitch was delivered the box was all beat up either during packaging or by the UPS delivery guy, lots of chipped paint and scuff marks on a brand new hitch.

2020 Acura RDX

Great product. Fits perfectly beneath the rear diffuser of the A-Spec. Installation was on par with what I expected. After removing the exhaust from the rubber hangers it still only gave a small amount of space to maneuver the hitch into place. It is a very snug fit. It does stick out farther than I expected but not enough to be concerning. Looks great and will soon be mated to a Yakima HoldUp. Im very happy with it and it shipped incredibly quickly. I placed my order late in the evening and had a shipping notification by the time I woke up.

This product is awesome! The install was easy! Tip, you don’t need to remove the exhausts. I just removed the rear lower diffuser and entered the hitch posteriorly into the undercarriage. It’s was so simple. The build quality on this hitch is top notch. I plan on using this hitch for a 218 lbs dirt bike carrier. Def recommend! Instal time : 45mins

Installed for future use of a bike rack. Fit was perfect and no need to modify anything on my 2020 RDX A-Spec! It does stick out a little (Approx 1-2"), but not enough to affect access to cargo area.



- 76268
by:

The hitch was easy to install it took me about 1 hour with no lift or jack. I had to lower just 1 side of the rubber exhaust hangers. Adding some soap and water to the rubber makes it easily for removal and to reinstall. It looks great and it is solid!

Great solid hitch for my Yakima bike rack. Easy diy install on my 2019 Acura RDX after I figured it out on my own. The only issue was with the install directions. The included directions, as well as everything I found online, showed having to remove the spare tire and move the exhaust system out of the way to get the hitch into position to bolt it in. I worked for about an hour trying to move the exhaust as per the instructions while still not making enough room to get the hitch into position without damaging the exhaust system. Finally I figured out all that needs to be done on the RDX is to remove the spare tire and a small piece of trim at the bottom of the rear bumper. The trim piece is held in place by 2 clips and 2 screws. With the piece out of the way the hitch can be easily be positioned around the exhaust to be bolted in place. 20 minute install that way!

Product looks good but will have to get it installed. I need a muffler hanger removal tool to install, just as the instructions say. One negitive took too long to get part.


Comments
it has been a year with my trailer hitch on the 2019 RDX. All but one thing has worked fine. I can not use my foot to open the tail gate. I sent an email on this before with no real satisfaction. I have just resolved to not using that feature on the car.

I am extremely happy with my purchase from etrailer.com!! After sizing down from an MDX to an RDX, I realized I would need a hitch and bike rack as I could no longer toss my bike in the back. :) Etrailer.com confirmed that the hitch I purchased would fit on my 2020 RDX and it certainly does. I paid $40 to have it installed, and my mechanic said it was the easiest hitch installation he's ever done. Customer service was also top notch! Thank you etrailer.com!!

Overall, pretty much as advertised. We raised the back of the car using ramps. Found we had to remove the rear four hangers on each side to provide enough space for the hitch install (used a pair of pliers to remove). Raising the hitch to position required two people due to weight. Looking back on the install, it wasn't too difficult, but did take a couple of hours due to our inexperience with these activities. Good father/son activity. Happy with quality and fit.

- 76268
by:
2019 Acura RDX

The hitch arrived quickly. I had a local mechanic install it and it took them less than an hour and cost me an additional $50 but worth it since I have no experience or tools to lower the muffler. It fit perfectly around the spare tire kit I have under the car. I have the Advance model and the only negative is it does completely block the sensors under the bumper which allows for the foot to activate the rear hatch. No matter where I place my foot, I cannot activate the sensor. Not a big issue but not ideal. When Acura installs their hitch, they have to install a new sensor. Of course, all of that is way more expensive.

After an exhaustive search for a hitch to fit my late model car and bike rack (specific pin-hole depth), I came across etrailer, convinced they would tell me there wasn’t a hitch on the market which would fit. (I contacted 5 other businesses who said either my car was too new and lacked measurements or they didn’t have one to fit the pin-hole depth for my hitch-mounted bike rack). I’m so glad I called etrailer; I spoke to an awesome rep, Jason, and not only did he find a hitch to match my needs but guaranteed the fit or he would refund my money PLUS return postage! Jason was super helpful, patient, professional and went above and beyond. The hitch works great and I’m able to transport my mountain bikes no problem. Thank you Jason! I highly recommend etrailer.

    The hitch I recommend for your 2020 Acura RDX is the Class III Draw Tite part # 76268 as it has higher towing capacities than the Class II hitch available for your vehicle # 36114 which will help with towing and it installs easily. You'll also need the Tekonsha kit part # 118800 which installs easily and has a very reliable converter box.

  • Trailer Hitch Fit for a 2020 Acura RDX A-Spec
    Draw-Tite has no fit exclusions for the A-Spec, so they consider the # 76268 hitch to be a fit. I've spent a bit of time looking at photos of the rear of the standard RDX versus the A-Spec model, and haven't seen too much of a difference. Usually the two factors are a different exhaust or a lowered rear fascia. In doing the eye test, nothing jumped out anything that would prevent the hitch from fitting. If you'll be towing with your RDX, you'll need a few other items to complete your...

  • Trailer Hitch Solution for 2019 Acura RDX with 19 inch Spare Wheel/Tire
    I have a solution for you but none of the hitches we offer for your 2019 Acura RDX with Tech Package can be used with a 19 inch spare stored underneath the vehicle. So what your best option would be is replace the spare you have with a smaller one from Acura so that you can then install the Draw Tite hitch part # 76268. For trailer wiring you'd then want the Tekonsha kit part # 118800 and you'd be set with an easy to install trailer wiring harness setup that's also very reliable.

More cargo baskets, bike racks, and other accessories are available in 2" because they are very common. That said, the # 36114 is a solid option of hitch as well with the same capacity and tongue weight.
