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.

Purchased hitch to run a bike rack on my WRX. Hitch has been super solid for what I use it for. Light use only but would recommend.


My experience with etrailer was fair at best. I place my initial order and waited, and waited. I finally got on the phone to find out what was going on and discovered the hidden hitch trailer I had ordered was not in stock and was not expected for some time. I was told there was another option, that was less expensive that was available. I foolishly assumed it was a similar product. The day came that the hitch arrived. It seemed packaged well, but there was still areas where the paint was chipped, exposing bare metal. I did the installation only to discover this was a below bumper model, not the hidden hitch I had originally ordered. Now I am already beginning to see rust on the hitch were the paint had chipped away. The whole experience certainly left a lot to be desired.

I am sorry to hear about your less than desirable experience. Customer Service will be reaching out. Also, it is important to file the rust and cover it in anti-corrosive paint. You can follow the tips in this article:

2018 Subaru WRX

Looking forward to installing on my 2018 Subaru WRX Limited, planned usage is a bike rack, so much easier than putting my bike in the trunk. So far opened the box and everything is there, watched several [online videos] on How To install so do not expect any problems there. Only compliant, several slight areas where paint is chipped - but considering this will sit under my car not concerned.

When it comes to shipping hitches, it is very common for them to arrive with scratches. We recommend using a rust-oleum type paint to cover the scratchesspots. This will prevent any corrosion in the future. I have a link attached for your reference. I have also sent this over to customer service for them to reach out to you.

2020 Subaru WRX

Hardware appears and feels to be durable, but came with some light scuffs on the crossbar. Instructions were decent, but I personally would recommend taking out the mufflers if the rear wheels cannot be removed. Some of the plastic clips in the wheel well are very hard to pry off with the wheel on. I made some dumb mistakes on the carriage bolt steps which ended up costing much time and a lost bolt. DO NOT REMOVE THE COILED WIRES UNTIL THE HITCH IS SCREWED IN. Make sure you also fish the wire and hardware through the correct holes. The 1-1/4" channel ended up being undersized as my rack was not able to fit until I sanded both the shaft and the channel.


I’ve been happy with my hitch for the past year! I’ve recommended eTrailer to family and friends who are looking for their hitch and bike racks.


The hitch is nice, sits in the right spot for attaching my bike rack. The reason I give it an average score was the amount of paint chips and scratches on this hitch when I got it. Looks like it was dragged across the warehouse before the put it in the shipping box. Spent a bunch of time repainting it before installing.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Customer service will be reaching out to you.

2019 Subaru WRX

Great, easy to install hitch. Took me about 1.5 hours by myself (on a 105* afternoon). One suggestion I have is if you have a stock WRX exhaust, don't waste your time, just unbolt the two mufflers and take them off of their hangers. Just be careful of your exhaust gasket rings and you'll save a ton of time and give yourself a lot of room. Also, I'm not too sure what the point of taking the rear fairings/underbody parts are, they didn't get in my way or affect the install at all.

2015 Subaru WRX

Installed on 2015 Subaru WRX. Directions were accurate, i.e., heat shield had to be slightly modified. Absolutely no rattles after installing the hitch. I have read that the equivalent curt hitch for this car can cause some rattles.

2016 Subaru WRX

Amazing customer service!
Perfect fit
and guarantee I will buy here again! Thank you etrailer!

2015 Subaru WRX

Great product and great company. Would definitely recommend them and would order from them again in the future.


Great service! Ordered about a week ago, just installed today. Took about an hour for 2 “mechanically inclined” 21 year olds. Looks great but was very dusty lol.

2019 Subaru WRX

Second draw tite hitch I have purchased. Great fitment but unfortunately it came pretty beat up and dusty. Lots of missing paint to bare metal and few rough welds. I have sprayed it in couple of spots with glossy black paint and it looks great.

No rattles like the curt hitch.


It is a pleasure doing business with e trailer . Working with Emma was great she is a great asset to e trailer.

2018 Subaru WRX

Fits and looks good on my 2018 wrx


Owned it for a year now. Works like a champ. Used it to pull a trailer to Florida several times, from NC. Fun trip, made possible by this strong hitch.

  • Best Trailer Hitch Option for 2018 Subaru WRX for Bike Rack
    The best hitch option for your 2018 Subaru WRX is the EcoHitch Invisi Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7257. This is because it has a completely hidden look and fits in the factory cutout of your rear bumper for a factory look. The 2 inch receiver opening will allow you to use accessories that have that 2 inch shank like bike racks and cargo carriers to give you more options that are compatible. If you want an easy install, then the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver- Class I...

  • EcoHitch Invisi Trailer Hitch Vs. Draw-Tite Class I Sportframe For 2019 Subaru WRX STI
    The EcoHitch Invisi Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 306-X7257 weighs about 30 lbs. The good thing is the weight of the hitch itself does not count towards any weight capacities of your vehicle because it is attached to the frame. I have attached an installation video for your reference. I recommend the EcoHitch because of it's 2" hitch receiver which is much more versatile when it comes to accessories like bike racks and cargo carriers. There are much more options for bike racks available...

  • Recommended Two Bike Platform Rack For 2018 Subaru WRX W/ Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch 24968 Installed
    I would be happy to help! The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24968 you were looking at for your 2018 Subaru WRX will measure 2" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the most outward edge of the bumper. Since the Thule T2 Classic 2 Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" Hitches - Tilting # TH9045 you mentioned measures 3-1/2" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the rack when it is folded up this rack would fit and work perfectly.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness for 2021 Subaru WRX
    For your 2021 Subaru WRX I recommend the EcoHitch Invisi Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7257. This Class III hitch has a maximum gross trailer weight of 3,500 lbs and tongue weight of 525 lbs. You will want to check your owners manual to find the towing capacity of your WRX to make sure you don't exceed it. You will be limited by whichever has the lower rating, the hitch or the vehicle. In addition to having the highest capacity of the available hitches for your WRX, this is the only available...

  • Recommended Thule Bike Rack and Trailer Hitch for 2015 Subaru WRX
    I went out to our warehouse to take a look at the EcoHitch Invisi Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7257 that you referenced and I measured a distance of only around 1-1/8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the receiver. With this in mind the 1UP rack you are looking at, along with Thule bike racks (which do all require at least 1-1/2 inches for this measurement), will not be a good option with this particular hitch. Because of the limitations on this hitch...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Recommendation and Trailer Wiring for 2019 Subaru WRX
    To tow a light trailer with your 2019 Subaru WRX I think the best overall option is the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24968 because it gives you the best overall value for your vehicle. This hitch has a 1-1/4 inch receiver and a 2,000 lb towing capacity with a 200 lb tongue weight capacity. Even though it has a visible crosstube, the Draw-Tite still has plenty of ground clearance (10-1/2 inches to the top of the receiver) for trailer towing, and is a much easier install than the EcoHitch#...
