Draw-Tite Heavy Duty Receiver Hitch - Weld-On Hitch - 41990-16 Review


Jeff: Hello everybody. This is Jeff etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at this Draw-Tite Class V 2" weld on service body trailer hitch receiver with the mounting brackets. Now this is a universal fit trailer hitch, which will let you tow a trailer with your heavy duty or commercial vehicle. It is designed for use on full-sized trucks with long wheel bases and heavy duty suspensions and this is a weld on installation, comes with these included side brackets. Now these side brackets will slide along the square tube to fit different with trailer frames.

So you just push it to whatever position is for your application and then it's welded into place. Now, when these brackets are installed, it will drop the hitch about 16" and that's measured from the top of the bracket, which lines up to the top of the vehicle's frame rail to the center of this hitch tube. Now they do use computerated steel construction to ensure strength and durability. A black powder coat finish covers a nice e-coat base for superior rust protection. As I mentioned, it's a nice sturdy square tube design.Now the ball mount that installs into this hitch receiver and the pin and clip, those items are not included.

We do sell those separately on our website. The kitchen pin hole diameter that fits this as 5/8" diameter. Also, if you notice at the bottom right alongside the hitch receiver opening, they have oversized safety chain loops for easy access. Just hook your safety chains to those openings. A few specs on this, the receiver opening is 2" by 2".

This is a Class V rated hitch. So the maximum gross trailer weight capacity is 16,000 pounds. Maximum tongue weight capacity is 1,600 pounds and this is not for use with weight distribution systems. Few dimensions on this, cross tube itself end to end is 44" wide. It's 3" by 3" square tube and the mounting brackets' overall height from the bottom to the very top here, it's right at 18 1/4" tall by 9" wide.

But that should do it for the review on this Draw-Tite Class V 2" weld on service body trailer hitch receiver with the mounting brackets.
