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.

This fully welded, corrosion-resistant vehicle trailer hitch receiver is perfect for your light-duty towing needs. Draw-Tite's Tested Tough guarantee ensures that this hitch exceeds industry standards. Drawbar sold separately.


This tow hitch was easy to install. It would have been easier if I had some help to hold one end while I attached the other. But it was still easy, It went on exactly as it was shone on the video, remember to leave any bolts loose as you need to juggle the hitch to get the ones on the frame. I still need to order an adapter 11/2 to 2 inch for the wheel chair lift.KS


The hardest two things about installing the hitch was getting the car up on jach stands and getting the two weld nuts cut off. Took me about three hours, start to finish. Guess that's not to bad doing it by myself. I'm anxious to get my wheelchair carrier on and load my wife's mobility scooter and try it out. Very pleased with the outcome so for.

2006 Chevrolet Malibu

I can't say enough about the service I recieved. The order arrived in a timely fashion (was even upgraded from the standard delivery at no extra cost). Installation was easy and the hitch fit like a glove on my 2006 Chevy Malibu. Would highly recommend

I have used the hitch quite a bit, Once to tow a U-Haul trailer from San Antonio to McAllen, TX, but mostly to attach my bike carrier to haul our 2 bikes when we are towing the car behind our motorhome. It has performed without a hitch!! Best investment Ive made. Would definitely recommend it.

2014 Chevrolet Malibu

It was very helpful that the installation video was available on; I probably watched it 14 times prior to installing the hitch on my 2004 Malibu. The only negatives are 1. I had a difficult time getting the welded nuts off of the frame; the video made it look SO easy, and 2. I installed 2 1/2 months ago, I've hitched up a trailer twice and already have surface rust coming through in the hitch receiver (I'm aware this is typical, however I liked the new look - I'll plan to get a cap).

2005 Chevrolet Malibu

Fast shipping. After watching the video the installation took about 1.5 hours. The hardest part was jacking up the car and putting the jack stands underneath. The actual installation went smoothly. Great job etrailer....

Have not had any problems at all. I consider it a quality product at a very hair price.

2008 Chevrolet Malibu Classic

After an awfull experience with a major supplier of hitches which also does moving were they ordered the wrong hitch for my car; I turned to etrailer and they were just handholding incredible. Not only did they find the right hitch that fitted my car perfectly, but delivery was right on the money and tech support just incredible. These guys are it concerning hitches and racks, don't bother with anyone else.

2007 Chevrolet Malibu

Great hitch, easy to install with great instructions and service!! I installed it on my Chevy Malibu and have mn’t had any problems at all. Overall I’m very pleased with, definitely would recommend!


received hitch, u.p.s. threw hitch around and made two holes in box. parts bag ripped open and missing 1 - 3/16 metal bracket. rest of parts were there .


I have not installed the hitch yet,but from what I have seen it is a well thought out design, (I design and build stuff for a living) and looks easy to install. C/S is great as I first ordered the wrong on but they figured it out and made the return and shipping of the correct one a breeze.


Your sales person was very helpful and the receiver came a day ahead of schedule. I already installed it and it went exactly the way the installation video showed. I couldn't ask for more...Thank you very much. Can't wait to order from your company again!


ups delivered the hitch at about 430 pm i picked my wife up from work at 500pm my son and i started installing the hitch at about 530pm the job was very easy the parts fit like a glove by 700pm i watched the evening news job was complete. thanks


Very easy to install. The easist that I ever installed. Another pair of hands was helpful for holding up the left side up while I was bolting the hitch to the frame.


Item was shipped very fast arrived in good condition, instructions were very clear, fit was spot on works well. This is about the 4th order and as normal they are great to deal with always fast shipping and items are just what you would expect good fit good quality and fair pricing.

2004 Chevrolet Malibu

Hitch fit perfect ,all parts were correct an included . After watching the video all went great.


Everthing went just the way the video's showed. Very satisfied. Would Highly Recommend If there was one thing to make it better would just be faster shipping. But it did arrive when it said it would. Thanks for a good experience.

2005 Chevrolet Malibu

Couldn't ask for better service. Ordered at noon on Sat, didn't expect it to ship till the next week, but it was shipped Sat. afternoon and I received it on Tues. Arrived as expected in perfect shape. What more could you ask for? Excellent price and exceptional service. I'm sure this is the first of many orders.


2006 Chevrolet Malibu

Fits perfectly. Very easy to install

  • Can a 2007 Chevrolet Malibu Tow a Trailer
    I'm unable to access an online version of the owner's manual for your 2007 Chevrolet Malibu. But if it says it shouldn't be used for towing then I can't recommend going against the manufacturer's recommendations. We do have trailer hitch receivers that will fit your car, like the Draw-Tite # 36317. Keep in mind this hitch fits model years 2004 through 2008 of the Malibu so the user reviews might be from a different model year than yours that can be used to tow. Also, hitch receivers...

  • How to Select a Hitch Ball
    The correct fit of a hitch ball on a ball mount depends on the ball's shank length and shank diameter. These dimensions matter because the shank has to fit the ball hole in a ball mount. All of our 1-7/8-inch hitch balls are shown on the linked page. These have shank diameters ranging from 5/8-inch up to 3/4-inch and shank lengths from 1-5/8-inch to 3-3/8-inches. I also linked our page for hitches for your car. Each has a recommended ball mount associated on the hitch page.

  • Draw Tite Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2006 Chevy Malibu
    I checked up on trailer hitch 88002 and found that it was an OEM hitch put on several vehicles. It's not something that we carry or can get, but for your 2006 Chevy Malibu we have the Draw Tite hitch part # 36317 as a confirmed fit if you are looking for a hitch for that vehicle.

  • Will I Need To Trim Bumper and Lower Exhaust To Install Draw-Tite 36317 On 2005 Chevrolet Malibu
    Yes, for installation, you will need to temporarily lower the exhaust to install the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 36317, on your 2005 Chevrolet Malibu. The best way to lower the hangers, is to apply some WD-40 to the rubber mounts to slide the hanger loose. If you have the SS model, the bumper fascia will need to be trimmed, other models of the Malibu do not require trimming of the bumper fascia. Part # 36317 includes a drawbar, pin, and clip.

  • Will Draw-Tite Hitch # 36317 Require Any Trimming of the Rear Fascia on 2006 Chevrolet Malibu
    The Draw-Tite Class II 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 36317 will fit your 2006 Chevrolet Malibu. The only modification of the rear bumper fascia is on the Malibu SS model. On the SS model you will need to cut a 1-1/4 inch x 1-3/4 inch opening on the rear fascia for the receiver hitch to fit through. The non-SS model vehicle does not require any modifications to the rear bumper fascia. I am including a link to the installation instructions on theDraw-Tite Hitch # 36317. The instructions will...

  • Is There a Class III Trailer Hitch for a 2007 Chevrolet Malibu
    The only available trailer hitch options for a 2007 Chevrolet Malibu (All Models) is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C12272 and the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 36317 which are both class II rated. Therefore, no you cannot use a class III hitch on a Chevrolet Malibu which is the case for a lot of these smaller vehicles because they simply don't make one for them due to the limited capacities. That said, if you have class III accessories that you want to use there is still...
