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.

2013 Ford F-150

etrailer did a great job, however I was not happy with the fact that Draw-Tite doesn't package the hitch for delivery, leaving it vulnerable to shipping damage. It arrived with paint chips but luckily no other damage.

2013 Ford F-150

I would have given this product 5 stars as the product itself is of good quality and a great value. I’ve purchased this same product in the past for a different vehicle and was very pleased with it. My reason for the 3 star review is the packaging. There was no care whatsoever when this hitch was packaged. This hitch is heavy with quite a bit of protruding metal and brackets. All they did was drop it in a cardboard box. No padding, no foam, nothing. Even the box was not up to the task. It was not heavy duty cardboard, just a regular box. I’m surprised the hitch was still in the box there was so many holes in the box. They really need to figure out a better packaging option for heavy and bulky items like this. The hitch is not damaged as far as I can tell, but it’s pretty scratched up.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you.I recommend touching up the affected places on the hitch with a rust resistant paint. This will help to prevent rust and also you will have it on hand for regular hitch maintenance.

2012 Ford F-150

Finally got it installed with the help of a seven year old (because her hands were small) holding a fastener at a difficult-to-access location. The front hitch works fine. Used a floor jack to hold it in place during installation. Instructions not particularly clear or accurate in my case. I should have been told that the front air foil needs to be removed completely (and discarded). With the labor provided by two adults & a little girl, it took the better half of a day to install it. It ends up being pretty low - I had to mill and grind the bottom of my hitch ball adapter so it wouldn't catch on anything when backing up. You need at least a 6" high hitch ball adapter.


I arrived last night from an all day wedding / reception , the pkg.was at my home. Two mounting flanges were protruding from the box and a hole in the box. I don’t know if there may be any damage or missing parts ?
I can forward pictures if needed? I don’t know if it should be opened or returned ?
I will see if your place is opened today ( Saturday )?

It is unfortunate yet common for hitches to protrude from the packaging. I have forwarded your information over to our customer service team in order for them to better assist you.

2013 Ford F-150

This is the second front trailer hitch that I have purchased from etrailer and once again the service and delivery were excellent. If your not mechanically inclined the instructions leave a little to be desired. Installation on my 2013 Ford F-150 was straight forward and took me about 3hrs. The unit is heavy duty and solidly made, so you will need some type of lifting device to hold it in place while you bolt it into place.
You ma y also have to cut out two additional notches in the facia to enable sliding the receiver forward enough to line up the bolt holes. I use this front hitch for moving airplanes and it does a great job.


This is my the fifth hitch from etrailer. Ordered on Tuesday and received on Thursday (a day early). This one took 2hrs to install by myself (I'm 71) on my 2012 f150 4x4 crewcab. The lower trim fascia can't be reinstalled. I'll be using it to launch my boat and move my trailer into tight spots. Great company and service!!

2012 Ford F-150

Despite the lead time briefly showing to be a couple months out after initial order, etrailer received new stock and promptly shipped it out and I received it very timely all things considered. Installation instructions included were easy to follow and it all attached as advertised to my 2012 Ford F-150 without having access to a vehicle lift. Initial impressions; I'm extremely pleased and look forward to utilizing it for my beach surf fishing rod rack set up.

2014 Ford F-150

Delivered earlier than expected. All parts there, instructions were perfect.


Install was pretty easy. I use this to move my camper in to its tight parking spot. The front hitch makes it so much easier.

Ford F-150

I use this hitch to attach my snow plow blade and move around my pontoon boat. I had to remove a plastic scoop in front of the F-150 to fit it on. I also had to notch another plastic piece in front to improve the fit. It works great on my 3" lifted '14 F150. As recommended, I retorqued the mounting bolts after using it. I did not have any problems mounting it but it did take longer than I thought it would.It is a high quality receiver.


A bit of a struggle to install, supporting the weight while bolting it. But once you trim the air dam, it fits like a charm. Very solid.


Easy to install and quality product

Ford F-150

Nice product, great tracking info, fairly easy install. Arrived in great condition.

2014 Ford F-150

Outside of the Box being beat up, this kit was amazing.

The kit came with everything needed for the installation, very clear directions and diagram. The only thing I had to supply were the wrenches and Loctite.

It took me about an hour to casually put it all together with one extra pair of hands helping to maneuver the hitch into place while i put the bolts in. (As others suggested, setting the hitch on a jack helps immensely with this step!)

Lastly, the 2' dock extends forward just far enough to easily swap hitch attachments, while not protruding past the front bumper when empty.

10/10 will buy again when i have to purchase a new truck.

Still holding strong! 2,000 miles w/a cargo rack loaded w two full coolers. no problems. Used it to help move my 6,000 lbs trailer around the yard. Again no problems. I cant recommend it enough if you value utility in your vehicle.

Looks good. I haven’t installed it yet so
Hope that goes well.

2009 Ford F-150

Product fit PERFECTLY, although there are some conflicting images on the instructions that led me to think the mounting holes were off. Once I saw the small diagram in the corner, it was all clear. A previous review saying to use a floor jack to hold it in place while installing was VERY helpful. My call to your customer service on the perceived instruction error was handled very nicely, even though it turned out I was wrong.

great, no problems

2011 Ford F-150

Great product (and great customer service from trailer), well built and easy to install. I've put them on all my pickups for years. Two comments on the instructions: (1) on my 2010 F-150 4WD w/o Ecoboost it was NOT necessary to cut the front of the fascia (as I discovered doing a dry fit), and (2) the instructions say to remove the air dam found on 2011 and up models; my 2010 has the air dam. Easily removed and replaced with a ? socket on an extension, no cutting necessary. Final note: it was necessary (and easy) to cut small (¼ inch) notches at the rear of the fascia on each side so the mounting wings could clear.

will this fit on a 2014 f150 STX
-- comment by: tony - 04/20/2014

A year later, I do get questions from folks wondering what a trailer hitch is doing on the front of a vehicle. When I explain that it makes parking a trailer a piece of cake I can see the eyes of trailer owners light up. Great concept, great product.
C P - 10/29/2014


Outstanding quality. Concise and accurate installation instructions

2010 Ford F-150

Showed up in 3 days and i was plowing snow the next day. 2 people and a jack made the installation easy.

2010 Ford F-150

Great hitch - very well made with excellent hardware - only issue I had with the instructions was re the front plastic fascia - stated I neede to cut an opening for the hitch - turns out I did not have to do that - so now I have to patch that - otherwise a very good product.
E trailer made ordering easy and delivery was prompt and on schedule.

Question: does this fit the 2012 ecoboost wtrailer tow package extra radiator in front of std radiator? Seems like it sits pretty far forward.Also, does this fit in the opening or below the bumper? Can you share some pictures of it on the pickup? I saw one front hitch that was nicely hidden in the opening, not exposed down below the bumper.Thanks!
-- comment by: Mark - 07/14/2013

What year of truck do you have? I have a 2011 F150 xlt and was wondering if I absolutely need to trim the facia to get the front receiver to fit.Thanks
-- comment by: Gary - 02/18/2015


My front bumper hitch did not ship with instructions in English. I contacted etrailer and immediately got a human to help me. They immediately sent to my email instructions in English and gave me assistance through a couple emails back-and-forths. Outstanding customer service and ultimately a rocksolid install. Now I can go surf fishing! Happy New Years!


Excellent hitch. Great instructions and video. easy installation a little heavy by yourself.just needed a little help holding up


Great hitch, easy to install on 2009 Ford F150 KR 4WD, just have to use a floor jack to lift it in place. About a 45 min job. Used frame hole by tow hooks to maneuver 5/8" bolts into place. Did not cut plastic air dam. It's just slightly bent where the coupler comes out. I will be using the front hitch with dual hitch extender to carry a bike rack and load extender to carry my kayak on the roof. etrailer was great to work with and price matched 110% of the difference of a cheaper price I found. Would recommend both the product and etrailer.

Ford F-150

I’ve used this front hitch on my F150 several times to push my 25’ travel trailer into tight camp sites that I could not have gotten into otherwise. Works great!

I only need to use it occasionally but when I do I’m very glad I have it!
