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.

As always everything fits like a glove. This is for our tow car (2015 Fiat)
So that we can take bikes with us down south. This matches the base plate and tow bar we got from etrailer which, too, fit perfect


Comments
Performed well for the bike carrier. We now have 2 electric bike that weighs in a 60# each plus a heavier carrier. Handles it well. Hitch is stable with the anti rattle bracket. Did have to convert to a 2” receiver but is still under the 200# tongue weight

The trailer hitch for a Fiat 500 arrived in good time, with no damage to the carton at all. The greatest amount of time I spent was in the assumption that I was doing something wrong, instead of the hitch being out-of-spec. I suspect there was poor quality control at the manufacturer rather than "flexing in transport," given the rigidity of the steel, and the fact that there was no damage to the shipping carton, nor any marring of the paint.

Our regular auto shop did not want to install the hitch, but I was able to do it myself.

Installation tips:

1) Do not fish the 1-3/4" bolt through the chassis until the last step. If it gets lost in the chassis, you'll have to take everything apart to get it out.

2) My muffler had a heat shield on it, and didn't look exactly like the installation video. Note, if you have small hands, it is possible to install the plates on the bumper supports WITHOUT loosening the muffler at all. Taking off and putting the muffler back on is a job in itself, especially if you just have the car on ramps. The fish wire can be used to help guide the plates into position, if your hand won't reach in there.
3) You will need a 3/4" DEEP socket to tighten the nuts all the way later, but only put them on very loosely for now.
4) Take off the tire lift and see how well the 1/2" hole aligns with the matching hole on the hitch. If, after wiggling and bullying the hitch as much as you can, it does not align, note how far off it is, and in what direction. The picture below is NOT of how the hitch should be installed -- the tire lift is shown on top only to illustrate how far off the actual hole in the chassis was. Then take the whole hitch off, and bend it into shape according to etrailer's suggestion. Or take it to an auto body shop if you don't have the tools or strength.
5) Do a trial fit again. If it doesn't align, bend it more. ONLY when the hole by the tire lift is perfectly aligned, should you take off the rubber plug and fish the 1-3/4" bolt through the chassis. Then put on the washer and nut, the other bolts and nuts for the tire lift, and tighten the bumper support nuts securely.

I purchased the Draw-Tite Sportframe trailer hitch receiver from etrailer with hopes that their description of the ease of installing it were accurate. I am happy to report the description was dead on. The hitch went on easily, and the video helped. It is solid, no rattles, and a good fit. You barely notice the hitch is there.
I plan on using the receiver to attach a rod rack to my Fiat to save wear and tear on my truck. Once i get the rack I'll be all set to hit my fishing spots incognito.


Comments
The hitch has lived up to its description. After a year and now having my rod rack installed I have to say I am extremely satisfied with the hitch and its performance.

This trailer hitch fits my 2015 Fiat 500e perfectly without any needs to drill additional holes. It took about 45 minutes to install if you are handy. The Fiat 500e is not designed to tow anything so the trailer hitch is really to hold my bike rack since it's designed to latch on to the left/right bumber brackets and to the right side of uni-body above the spare tire mount. If the hitch is re-designed to attach to both side of the uni-body, then I would consider towing a very lite weight trailer but I will not with the current design.

It'd helped to watch the eTrailer installation video to a 2012 Fiat 500, on YouTube. The 500e does not have a spare-tire mount nor a muffler so it is easier to install since you would skip those steps.

I had search the internet for an inexpensive trailer hitch and I am glad some dude recommended this particular hitch for the 500e and it fits! The best part of this whole installation is that you can remove the hitch and return the vehicle to the original configuration.


Comments
Hi: I to have the 500E and am very interested in this hitch as the trunk mount is a risk to the window. Di you need to buy anything else such as the hitch mount Have you tried 2 bikes? does it drain the battery excessive/ Thanks
-- comment by: mark - 05/06/2015


by:

The hitch and installation worked out fine. One problem was when I inserted my bike rack into the receiver, the rack would not go far enough into the receiver for the pin to slide through. I had to cut about an inch off of the bike rack. Later, I tried to insert a hitch ball into the receiver with the same result. I will need to cut about an inch off the hitch ball. Upon inspection, it appears the receiver has some welding slag inside the receiver which is stopping any attachement about an inch short.


Comments
I have contacted the manufacturer and I have found a solution for you! This seems to be a defect of some excess slag when welding. We recommend taking a file and filing down that excess slag, Then cover that filed area with some rust resistant paint. This will not affect your towing or tongue weight.

by:

Easy to install, and much heavier duty than I expected. However, the receiver isn't deep enough. None of my hitch accessories can go in far enough for the pin holes to line up. I'll need to either cut them all shorter or drill a new hole.


Comments
Draw-Tite welds or punches a stop into the receiver tube of their Class I hitches to prevent higher-rated Class II accessories from being used in a Class I hitch and possibly being overloaded. This is intentionally done as a safety measure. The distance between the pin hole and the end of the shank on a Class I accessory is longer than that of a Class II, so the end will hit the stop before the hitch pin holes will line up.
-- Etrailer Expert Mike L - 05/28/2019
After my previous review I was informed that the concern I had about the reciever not being beep enough was because this is a class one, and the attachments I have are class 2, though they are the same size. I guess I just assumed that class one is smaller than 2, but I was incorrect. Had I known this at the time, I would have given 5 stars. After one year, the hitch is still working as expected.

1.Product was delivered promptly.
2.Installation
instructions included aren’t worth the paper they are written on, video is 100% better.
3.I had to drill the hole bigger on the hitch for the screw that goes into the frame.
4.3 hours installation time, 2 hours and 20 minutes was messing with the rubber hangers and trying to get them off.
5.Installation was pretty simple and straightforward after watching the video.
6. Buy some muffler hanger remover pliers.

2015 Fiat 500

The hitch went on with just one kink. On the right tab that extends forward, the smaller hole for the bolt to the pre-threaded hole on the frame, needs to be oversized by 0.125" Diameter. The large bolt (the one you feed with the fish wire) fit perfectly but the smaller bolt was 1/16" off center and the hold had to be widened. No amount of twisting and repositioning would get it to line up, but the big bolt was perfectly centered. Aside from that it bolted up nice and tight.

Here is a picture with the #63120 bike rack I also ordered from etrailer.

And finally, my hat is off to your shipping people. They did a masterful job of getting both the hitch and the bike rack securely in the carton. Fantastic and creative packing!

Poor Tolerances = Impossible Proper Installation.
Unfortunately, the trailer hitch receiver was manufactured with the square crossmember extending across the outermost driver-side mounting plate in such a way that precluded the use of a washer on the mounting hole (photo attached). (This alone is worth returning the trailer hitch receiver)
To test fit, I omitted the washer and used the bolt alone. It had enough clearance to turn, but was tight with the socket wrench.
I then found that the body attachment bolts at the bumper support, extend rearward and interfere with the carriage bolts (photo attached). I ground off the excess portion of the body attachment bolt to accommodate for the carriage bolt. With the two brackets snug on the bumper support, I found that the forward attachment arm was 1" below the frame of the vehicle (photo).
Lastly, the product arrived with chips in the paint and in generally not with that 'shiny new' look. This didn't upset me as much as it surprised me. Happily, there were no etrailer or Draw-Tite stickers.
Contacted support to get replacement trailer hitch receiver that will accommodate the washer on the outermost driverside mounting bracket. Hopefully, the other tolerance issues will resolve themselves as well and maybe, just for fun, the replacement will have that 'new and shiny' look.

Hitch was installed on fiat500e w no holes needing to be drilled, and bike rides securely.
Good product at a good price, and it was a review on this site that mentioned no holes having to be drilled on fiat 500 e!




by:

The other parts I ordered, the paint is coming off the draw parts on the car, making it rust, the paint started before I even hooked it to the drawbar the first time. I thought this a heavy duty paint and would last of r some time. The other think was that they sold me parts that i did not even need.




by:

Let me just say, the product fit as described, and once installed looks good. Installation was straight forward and the hardest part was getting the muffler brackets off to lower the muffler. The only problem I had was instead of packing 5 1/2-13 nuts and 5 1/2 washers the manufacture packed 5 extra 1/2 x 2" carriage bolts which didn't go anywhere. A quick trip to the hardware store and I was back in business. I don't intend to tow anything but this will allow me to take our bikes along when we travel.

This went onto my 2017 Fiat 500. I have had 0 problems with this. I bought and installed it in 2018. I installed it all by myself and had little trouble doing so, if you have help then it will be that much easier to install. It has served its purpose and is continuing to do so. It is also very sturdy, and the finish was professional looking. I like how it mounts because it is mostly not visible.


Comments
Still great, after 4 years. I got a very slight rear ending in a traffic jam. Nothing crazy, the person was probably going about 7-10mph on impact in a Pontiac Sunfire. So it was a small car too. That being said, the vehicle hit the hitch and the accessory attached a rear mounted spare tire holder to it. There was no damage to my rear end and after looking underneath, the frame and brackets were all still straight, no bends or cracks. So thats pretty great too!

Fourth product I have bought from e-trailer. As usual, it was perfect except for a 2015 Fiat 500 Pop, the four hanging bolts should be 1/2 inch longer. Great product, again. Thanks for providing a product for a vehicle that is not usually known for needing a trailer hitch.

The hitch is working great on our Fiat 500 Pop. We use it for a bike rack often as well as a light trailer for a motorcycle and lighter weight loads.

Excellent product. Worked great on my Fiat 500e. It is a little tight of a fit where it touches the lowest edge of the rear metal body panel but it worked! My only suggestion would be to make the rear flanges have rounded corners to avoid contact with the lower rear metal body panel under the plastic bumper instead of square corners. Otherwise it works great!




by:

Installed perfectly on our 2015 Fiat 500 convertible. I don’t have a spare tire so that made it super easy to install in 15 mins. I use a Thule 3 bike rack and have enjoyed the practicality ;)

    For your 2014 Fiat 500e the Draw Tite part # 24873 will work. We had a customer with a similar 500E come back and say it worked for them. This is a 1-1/4 inch hitch though since this smaller hitch size is what is seen on lighter duty vehicles like yours.

    Even though the Tongue Weight (TW) rating of the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24873 for your 2015 Fiat 500 is 200 lbs, I have my doubts as to whether the TW rating for your Fiat is that high. You will want to call your local dealer to check. Aside from that, if the weight of your mobility chair is 250 lbs then it is already exceeding the max TW capacity for the trailer hitch receiver and should not be used.

Draw-Tite does not have that requirement. If you will be doing some towing (check your owner's manual first because the online copy...

    There is a way to carry bikes with your 2012 Fiat 500 convertible. What you can do is install a trailer hitch # 24873 (does not fit Abarth models) or for an Abarth model use # C11347. Then you can use a Class I compatible bike rack such as the NEO2 # B01748. This rack holds the bikes at the wheels so it is compatible with many bike styles. And it weighs just 15 pounds so it is easy to handle. I have linked a video review of this rack for you.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Fiat 500
    Yes, the Draw Tite hitch part # 24873 is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Fiat 500 as long as it's not an Abarth. This hitch is recommended over the Curt because it does not require the stabilizer strap like the Curt does. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Camber 2 part # TH9058. We asked our demo and install guys to name their favorite, most easy-to-use bike racks and this one showed up in nearly everyone's top three. Check out the...

  • Cargo Carrier, Hitch and Net Recommendation for a 2012 Fiat 500 Pop
    For a trailer hitch to use a cargo carrier with your 2012 Fiat 500 Pop you would want the Draw Tite part # 24873.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2012 Fiat 500 to Tow a 350 Pound Pontoon Boat and Trailer
    All of the trailer hitches that fit the 2012 Fiat 500, including # 24873, are rated for up to 2,000 pounds gross trailer weight. So a trailer that weighs 350 pounds total would be no problem for the hitch. Consult the Fiat owners manual though to determine if it has a towing capacity and, if it does, what that capacity is. Always go by the lowest rating. The tongue weight capacities listed for the hitches is the amount of weight pushing straight down on the hitch that it can handle. A...
