Video Transcript for etrailer Hitch Covers - Misc Covers - 22282 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number 22282. This is the rubber hitch cover for 2" hitches. It's made from a black rubber construction. It's going to have the logo in matching raised lettering right here on the front face. This is the designed for use with 2" by 2" square trailer hitches. The rubber cover is simply pushed into the receiver opening. It does not require any pins or clips to hold it in place inside the hitch.

Nice rubber construction so you can squeeze this end to get it to fit inside your hitch. It's going to provide that nice tight fit. Again, designed for 2" by 2" hitches. It's going to help prevent buildup of dirt and debris inside your hitch. It's also going to give your hitch a nice clean, finished look when you're driving down the road. We're going to go and take a measurement of the front face here.

Square design so we'll just do one measurement going straight across here. That's going to be about 3-1/8", so 3-1/8" by 3-1/8". That's at the front face. We're going to go ahead and show you how it installs inside of a hitch. We have a demo hitch here today that we can simply take our cover and place it in. This is a 2" by 2" opening.

You place it in there, give it a good push. It's going to provide that nice tight fit and seal up the opening of our hitch and give it a nice clean, finished look. That's going to do it for the today's review of part number 22282. This is the rubber hitch cover for 2" hitches. .

Black rubber hitch cover protects your hitch receiver from dirt and debris when not in use. No pins or clips needed.


Great product and fast delivery! Fits like a glove to my new 2024 Subaru Crosstrek. To use with a KUAT bike rack.


Package arrived in a timely fashion and the instructions were very easy.


It fits nicely in the hitch receiver.


Great quality, good installation instructions, good support. It was easy to install and solid (high quality). Installed on a 2023 Honda Passport Trailsport. I plan on using this initially for a bike rack (a Swagman rack that I like a lot ). I may also look to tow a light trailer in the future for camping.
This is my second hitch purchase from you guys and both experiences have been great and exceeded my expectations. Thank you!


I’m glad this 2” is available for the VW Gulf. This hitch is perfect for my uses. I like the low visibility and how solid it is. I tow a sailing kayak and transport 2 Ebikes frequently. The 2” hitch provides a sturdy connection for the Thule carrier. Couldn’t be more satisfied.


This is my second hitch purchase from e-Trailer. The hitch fits our 2021 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid perfectly. I did the installation alone and had to use various means (blocks, tubs, straps) to hold it in place. Other folks recommended a second pair of hands. Probably a good suggestion. The hitch will allow us to add our bike rack and haul our bikes conveniently and safely.


semi hard rubber makes this cover fit nice and snug in the hitch receiver so that it will not fall out.


It is a solid built hitch. Its a pwrfect fit for my 2019 Subaru forester. Just like the oem product if not much better because its a 2” which Subaru only has 1/4”. Easy to install with the step by step video.


Perfect fit for the trailer hitch I recently bought from and installed on my wife's 2013 Acura RDX. I had purchased a hitch, ball and mount, and wiring harness. They were VERY easy to install and fit like a glove. Looking forward to using it this summer!! Thank you,!


The quality of the trailer hitch is well constructed. Installed on a 2021 Toyota Hybrid Limited Highlander. Installation videos are great, didn’t take long to install. As other reviews have stated the lower panel requires very little modification to reinstall. Installation brochure shows to much plastic to cut, not necessary. The only disappointing/complaint I have is the foot sensor for the lift gate no longer functions, as I assume the hitch is blocking the sensor. Overall great product.


We’ve been very happy with our hitch and our hitch cover. The hitch cover is used throughout the year except when we load up our bikes. I have no regrets in the purchase we made.


These work perfectly in my three separate receivers. They look good and they offer a good protection. Wouldn’t hesitate to buy another one.


Great product!


This was for my 2022 Prius AWDe, XLE.
EcoHitch is A high quality build with precision that was attested to when my Toyota Dealer’s service rep touted it too - when they completed the install in just about two hours. Great comfort to have the new car warranty intact, especially with the disassembly and reassembly necessary for the hitch. Thank you e-trailer for the install video too!


Perfect fit. This will keep the gunk and junk out of the receiver. This gives it a clean look.

I’ve had this product for a year and it’s done it’s job extremely well. It’s kept it’s shape and is not dry-rotting.
Cueball - 10/03/2022


Ease of order competitive pricing and quick shipping made this a great item. Installation was as expected and quality and aftermarket fitment was spot on. Way better that other choices. It looks like it was factory installed without the factory price. Great job and thanks for the customer service follow up. Would order from again any day


The hitch cover keeps out the debris and covers the hole perfectly. Satisfied with the product.


Definitely worth the minimal investment! Really keeps the elements out of the hitch opening making for a clean hook up every time.


Everything worked as advertised on my 2014 CX-5. The installation video was key, very helpful!


Great keeps dirt and rust from getting into hitch.


It fit my 2" hitch perfectly. I bought it as a back up for when and if my Starwars cover didn't work out. I love both items from etrailer


DIY took about an hour on my 2018 Nissan Murano, which included tapping the nuts welded to the frame. In a couple of spots needed to be careful not to break the tap due to the close vicinity of exhaust brackets. Looks nice and was a perfect fit. Very happy with how it installed.


The level of organization and dependability of the entire etrailer operation is top notch. Nearly every product is described and demonstrated with emphasis on providing details. What i really like is they are not just representing a select few of products but their website is well organized and there are always more than one product that will meet my needs to select from. Best feature of all is they clearly list pricing whether for end user or for manufacturing customers. No games and with reasonable level of purchase, free ground shipping, and well protected shipping protection. Do business with these guys!


The perfect fit and the condition of the cover is as good as new one year later


Fits nicely in a 2 inch trailer hitch and adds a finishing touch when the ball mount isn't installed.

  • Best/Recommended Tire Pressure for Trailer Tires
    Trailer tires should also be inflated to their maximum pressure that is stamped on the sidewall. At the maximum air pressure, the tires will perform and wear best, and get the best gas mileage. If a trailer tire is inflated to a lower air pressure than the maximum, the amount of weight that the tire can carry will be reduced. If a heavier load is put on the trailer tire than what is recommended for that air pressure, the sidewall of the tire could heat up and cause the tire to fail. You...

  • How to Determine Weight Capacity of Trailer Axle
    To find the load capacity for your axle you should look on the trailer VIN plate or sticker that lists the VIN number. The weight rating of the axle should be listed on that same plate or sticker. Also, the axle could have a tag or plate on it that will list the weight capacity. You can also tell the weight capacity of the axle by measuring the diameter of the axle. Here is a list that will show the axle weight capacity based on the axle diameter: Typical Axle Diameters Based on Axle...

  • Can I Put the Leaf Springs on Top of the Axle to Give me More Tire Clearance
    Yes, you can move your springs on top of the axle to gain more tire clearance. Doing this will raise the height of your trailer by the height of your axle and the thickness of your leaf springs. For example, if your axle is 3 inches tall and your leaf springs are 1 inch thick at the axle, your trailer would sit 4 inches taller over your tire. If you would like to send me more information about how your springs are attached to your axle, I would be happy to give you more specific information...

  • How to Pick Out Leaf Springs for a Trailer
    Sounds like you replaced your slipper spring with a double eye spring. Either spring style will work just fine. Whichever style you prefer or think would be easier to convert your trailer to would be your best solution. When replacing trailer leaf springs we strongly recommend you replace them in pairs. I would urge you to get a set of matching properly rated springs for your trailer as soon as possible. If you look on the frame of your trailer there should be a plate with the trailer...

  • How to Measure Trailer Leaf Spring to Find Correct Replacement
    To correctly measure a leaf spring, you'll want to jack the trailer up on jack stands so the axle is hanging freely, then measure directly across from the center of one spring eye to the other, as shown in the provided diagram. The height of the spring and the distance from the spring eye to the center of the spring can also be helpful in finding the correct replacement. To ensure you're getting the correct leaf springs, you'll also need to know the capacity of your axle. If you can find...

  • Are the Trailer Suspension Dimensions Listed for When Trailer is Loaded or Unloaded
    All of the trailer suspension dimensions we have on our site are for when the trailer is unloaded. It sounds like you are referring to a leaf spring dimension since the A and B dimensions would be the most affected by being loaded or not. I attached a help article on trailer suspension for you to check out as well.

  • How To Determine Correct Replacement Double Eye Leaf Springs for Camper Trailer
    The axle capacity and a couple of measurements from your existing leaf springs will help us determine the correct replacement springs for you. It is best to replace all springs at the same time and to make sure they match the capacity of the trailer axle. Your axles' capacities should be listed on a sticker located near the center of the axles. The measurements from your springs that are helpful when searching for replacements are (A) the length from center of one eye to the center of...

  • How to Pick Out Replacement Leaf Springs for a Trailer with Rusty Leaf Springs
    The bolt running down the middle of your leaf springs will keep them together, but if they are showing as much rust as you said they are it would be a good time to replace your springs. The clips are designed to help keep the leafs together although they are already connected at the bolt. You will need to measure the length of your springs from one eye to the other, the width of the springs and determine the capacity of springs you need to pick out the correct springs.

  • Can Tubeless Tires be Used on a Tube Tire Trailer Wheel
    You could use a tubeless tire in place of a tube tire. However when you use a tube with a tubeless tire it will cause the tires to generate excessive heat. And heat is the number one enemy of tires. Based on this it is not recommended. It is possible to use a tubeless tire on a wheel designed for tube tires without a tube. The wheel has to be a one-piece wheel that has a hole for a valve stem and a flap to help seal the tire to the wheel. I have included a link to our tire and wheel...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Axle Equalizer that Touches Trailer Frame
    The first and easiest thing you should check is that the trailer is being towed level. If the trailer is nose high or low that can cause the equalizers to not sit level. You will need to select the correct rise/drop ball mount so that the trailer sits level. I attached an FAQ on how to do this. If there is significantly more weight on one of the trailer axles you will need to adjust the cargo in the boat or the way the boat is loaded on the trailer to get the proper amount of tongue weight...

  • How to Determine Capacity of a Trailer
    Unfortunately, the number of leaves in the leaf springs doesn't always indicate the capacity of the spring. In many instances, the trailer axle will have a plate on it somewhere listing its capacity, or the trailer itself will have an identification plate that lists the VIN and the GVWR, which should include the axle capacity. If you can't find the capacity in any of those two places, certain attributes of the trailer can give a pretty good hint as to the axle capacity. Knowing the wheel...

  • What is Ideal Weight Load on Trailer Springs to Provide Good Ride Quality
    Naturally a trailer should always be loaded within its rated capacity, but indeed an unloaded or lightly-loaded trailer will have more bounce and handle a bit rougher than one that is loaded up to say 75-percent of its capacity. There is no actual rule of thumb on this. Apart from the weight of the load on the trailer you also have to consider the manner of how that load is positioned as this too affects ride quality. If you can increase the tongue weight (TW) load on the trailer by loading...

  • Can Double-Eye Leaf Spring Suspension be Replaced with Slipper Spring Suspension
    Slipper springs and double-eye springs use different mounting kits and hangers so you would actually have to do a bit more work and get all new parts if you wanted to switch from one to the other style. The hangers especially would be the biggest part of the switch because the old ones would have to be cut off and new ones welded on. The u-bolt kit, spring seats, some hardware, is going to be different. I have included a couple of help articles that show all the things needed for double-eye...

  • How To Determine the Weight Rating of a Trailer Axle For Leaf Spring Replacement
    The trailer will have a plate or sticker on it that will list the VIN number. The weight rating of the axle should be listed on that same plate or sticker. Also, the axle could have a tag or plate on it that will list the weight capacity. Since the trailer you have is an older trailer it might be missing the plate or be very hard to read. You can also tell the weight capacity of the axle by measuring the diameter of the axle. A 2,000-lb axle will have an axle diameter of 1-3/4 inch. A...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Pulls Nose High Are Spacers Available to Level with My 2011 2500 Dodge Ram Diesel
    The first thing I would do in your situation is take the truck and trailer to your RV dealer and have them check out your setup. Typically 5th wheel trailers are set up to tow a bit pin high to allow for more weight transfer to the rear most axle or axles on the trailer. If possible, you can adjust the trailer pin box closer to the underside of the trailer loft, or reduce the height of your fifth-wheel hitch head in the bed of your truck. Be aware that adjusting the trailer too close to...

  • How to Determine if a Trailer can be Upgraded to a Larger Wheel and Tire
    You are going to need to know a few things before you will be able to know if you can go to a bigger wheel/tire combination. You will first want to determine how much clearance you have on your trailer to see if you can get fit a bigger wheel/tire. Once you determine how much clearance you have you will need to determine how much bigger you could go. The height of the 4-80-12 tire you have 20.5 inches, the smallest size tire for a 14 inch rim is 26.3 inches which means that the new tire...

  • Troubleshooting Tandem Axle Double-Eye Trailer Suspension Rear Shackle Strap That Moves
    I suspect the problem with your rear shackle straps coming out of the correct position on rough roads occurs when the trailer is unloaded or at least when there is little or no weight on the rear. If this is the case you can either put some weight on the back of the trailer or slow down (I do know that's no fun!). My technical contact at Dexter axle confirmed that there really is no cause for concern with the shackle strap moving like this as it will naturally re-position itself when under...

  • Trailer Axle Placement On 16 Foot Gooseneck Trailer
    When trying to determine the placement of the axles on a trailer, you will need to mock the trailer up with the suspension to make sure everything is placed where it should be. I have attached a photo that shows how you determine where the centerline should be between the axles. When determining axle placement, an important factor to consider is the tongue weight. You want the tongue weight of the trailer to be approximately 10 percent of the gross trailer weight. Moving the axles rearward...

  • What are the Trailer Suspension U-Bolt and Shackle Bolt Torque Specs
    For trailer suspension u-bolts you can go by the following specs: 1/2" bolts: 45 ft/lbs - 70 ft/lbs 9/16" bolts: 65 ft/lbs - 95 ft/lbs 5/8" bolts: 100 ft/lbs - 120 ft/lbs For the shackle bolts that hold the spring to the hangers there isn't really a specific torque rating. They have to be snug but the spring still needs to be able to move. I have included a link to our help article on double-eye trailer leaf springs for you as well.

  • Recommended Replacement Double-Eye Leaf Springs for 5 x 8 Utility Trailer
    You can click on the link provided to see our replacement double-eye leaf springs in the 1-3/4-inch width. These are available in various lengths and for various axle weight ratings. If your springs are still installed on the trailer it is hard to get an accurate length measurement. It is best to pull a spring out of the suspension before you measure. Also, if a leaf spring is really old or really worn it can stretch by as much as 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch. You'll want to check the axle capacity...

  • How to Pick Out Replacement Trailer Leaf Spring
    The picture you sent in shows the rear of a leaf spring that shackle straps are used for securing the spring. This isn't a standard leaf spring setup, but it should work just fine. To pick out a replacement spring you are going to need to take a few measurements. You are going to need to measure the length of the spring without any weight on it, and you are going to need to know the capacity of trailer/axles so that you pick out the correct rated spring. Once you know that info you will...

  • Should Trailer Leaf Springs be Replaced in Pairs
    When in comes to replacing leaf springs on trailers we recommend that you replace them in pairs so you are using the same springs on each side of the axle. I attached a help article on trailer suspension leaf springs for you to check out as well.

  • If Trailer Leaf Spring Breaks Should All of them Be Replaced
    Anytime you replace the leaf springs of a trailer we recommend replacing at least both sides of the same axle. Going with new springs all around for the trailer is a great option too. Going with a higher than needed leaf spring isn't necessarily a bad thing but you might have a harsher ride on the trailer. You should note that your trailer's capacity would not be increased by doing this either.

  • Purpose of Steel Band on Trailer Leaf Springs and Which Side of Axle it Should Go On
    The clips on leaf springs are designed to be forward of the axle due to braking axle wrap (twisting). The straps/clips aren't super strong to prevent this but they're still there. If the strap comes off or the leaves come apart it is time to replace the springs.
