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.

2020 Ram 1500 Classic

Garbage! This thing was a nightmare to install. It took 2 floor jacks and a dead blow hammer to get it in place, only to find that It was tweeked horribly. If your on a budget, get it. Just know you will need to grind all the holes bigger to make it fit. They will say it’s from metal movement, but that’s BS. It’s poorly packaged. There is no foam to protect the hitch at all. It’s only the cheapest cardboard China has to offer. Upon receiving the hitch the box looked like it had been attacked by a T-Rex. If I hadn’t needed the hitch when it was delivered, I would of sent it back. I gave it 2 stars only because it was cheap.(you get what you pay for…..)

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you. It sounds like that the side brackets were knocked out of alignment which can happen while in transit to our facility or to you. We do have a FAQ that can assist with moving the side brackets of the hitch back into alignment to allow for installation. I also recommend touching up the hitch with a rust resistant paint which you will have on hand for regular hitch maintenance.

Perfect fit and easy to install.Well hidden when not in use on our 2018 Nissan Rogue.

2018 Dutchmen Coleman Light LX Travel Trailer

The delivery was quicker than expected and although it was reasonably well boxed, the box didn’t hold up too well. The hitch is obviously made for my vehicle, I took some measurements before installing it. Hooking it over the existing cross rail and getting all the holes to line up ended up being a chore. I ended up pulling the bumper. It’s on and looks good. Thanks etrailer, your videos always help.

It’s a nice hitch and was obviously made for my truck. The installation was difficult. A couple of holes didn’t match up and I ended up pulling the bumper to get things to line up. Not sure there’s anyone to blame. It’s a Dodge!

I should have read more reviews. I never would have gotten this hitch. Holes didn’t line up the entire assembly was maligned. Clearly was placed in the jig and/or welded incorrectly. Should be manufactured so you can use spacers to allow for more clearance. I’m not falling for the damaged during shipping excuse, even though the box that it was placed in was mangled and useless. After using a pry bar, ratchet strap and drilling out the holes we finally got it installed. Please do yourself a favor and buy a different hitch.

I understand that it is upsetting to receive a hitch that is difficult to install. The side brackets on the hitch are made of a spring steel that has flexibility to them as they do need to be able to move with the vehicle frame after they are installed. It is possible for the side brackets to be flexed out of alignment which will result in the holes being misaligned. This can happen while in transit to our facility or to you. I know that you were able to install the hitch. We do have a FAQ that provides ways to move the brackets back into alignment. I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

I ordered this hitch on July 03 for a trip. I was leaving on July 09, and was told it would arrive by July 08. It did not. I was able to order the hitch from another company, on July 0&, and it arrived July 10. I went on my trip, and returned July 15th. Still no package. I called and was told I would receive a refund. Apparently this was the motivation that someone needed to check on my package. It arrived July 18th. The box is beat up, and completely open. There is no hardware to install the hitch in the box. I was told I could return it, but would have to pay $120 shipping to return it. Over two weeks for delivery is unacceptable. $120 for shipping to return a $220 hitch is ridiculous.


Good product heavy hitch. Box was damaged but seemed ok. difficult to install alone two people install for sure. Fits very tight needed a big hammer to help into place maybe a little damaged during shipping who knows.

It may have been a bit flexed which is a common occurrence in hitch receivers. I am glad that you got it installed.

2022 Ram 1500 Classic

The hitch receiver is very nice but the installation was not so nice. Two of the holes would not line up and we had to drill. It was a very difficult install. Hitch was nice but the install was very difficult. If it states no drill direct mount it should be just that.

Thank you for the review! One thing that happens sometimes is the hitch becomes flexed in the shipping process. We actually have a help article that shows some ways to straighten out a hitch since this is not an uncommon occurrence due to the bulkiness of the hitch.

2020 Ram 1500 Classic

Won't even come close to fitting on my 2020 ram 1500 classic. Very disappointing

You mentioned that the hitch is not fitting on your 2020 Ram 1500 Classic and I wanted to see if you could explain more detail how it was not fitting? Would you be able to send pictures.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 08/05/2022
The uprights on the hitch seem to be too narrow. I read how you guys explain how to bend the frame to get it it fit and tried bending slightly a few different times and could not get both sides to go up to the frame. I had a trip on Saturday that I needed the hitch for so I was just a little frustrated. I did not take any pictures
-- comment by: Doug - 08/05/2022
I wanted to see if it would be possible to send pictures to show the hitch and how it was not a fit. If it is flexed too much, then the hitch could be replaced. I also have a video installation video on a 2019 Ram 1500 Classic that could help.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 08/05/2022


I ordered this hitch, not exactly knowing what I was getting. Turns out I got more than I bargained for. It is one of the heaviest built hitches I have ever seen or owned. Install was easy if you have tools and some mechanical knowledge. My only concern with it, is that the slots where you hook your chains, are a little tight. Takes a little jockey'n around to get them to clip. And that's because the metal that the hitch is made of, is SOOO thick. So It's a tradeoff. Highly recommend!!

A year later, I still love this hitch. I added sone chain link connectors for my safety chains and it alleviated my previous problem.

2017 Dodge Ram Pickup

Easy install thanks etrailer! Simple, extremely quick shipping and follow up. That's great customer service. Few simple tools 19&21mm sockets ratchet and torque wrench and about 1.5 hrs I had hitch and brake controller installed in my 2017 ram. I used a little anti seize on all bolts.

by: was very helpful with the specifications for trailer hitches, and sent their recommended hitch to us very quickly.
*** Installation was a nightmare. ***
When we first tried to install it from underneath, none of the holes could be aligned. We removed the bumper, and the rear cross-member (that the bumper was bolted to), so that we could assemble it on the ground before putting it in, and it still needed modification. Putting the bolts though with a string as instructed was not a simple task, but it was the easiest part of this installation. The instructions are vague. Once the assembly was put back into the truck, 4 of the remaining holes needed to be modified (the furthest forward in the truck and the middle holes).
It hard to understand how Draw-Tite got the holes to be mis-aligned this much.
It took a day of grinding and some pry bars to get it in.
If I didn't need it soon, I would have sent it back.
The hitch does look and feel strong now.


Does the job! This is my third purchase from etrailer and it has been as advertised each time!


Trailer hitch bolts don’t line up and now have a cross threaded bolt in my uniframe

Sometimes weldnuts need to be cleaned, it can be splatter from when the frame was welded together or it could be paint or corrosion. To clean the threads out well, you can use a wire brush and some brake cleaner. Make sure you start the bolts so they are not cross threading the nuts. It also sounds like your hitch may be flexed which is why the hitch wont line up. I have attached a helpful article.
-- Etrailer Expert Heather A - 03/25/2022


Solid hitch and well thought out. The problem is with fitment. The passenger side mounting bracket need to be move towards the outer part of the truck (to the right side-looking at it from behind) about 1/8-1/4” at least. I had to apply constant pressure along with hitting it with a hammer to get it up. Then had to use hydraulic tools in order to pinch the mounting bracket to the existing bumper bracket in order to get the bolts to line up with the threaded hole.

Thank you for your review, it does sound like your hitch was flexed in shipping. I have attached a helpful article that explains how to flex it back into place.
-- Etrailer Expert Heather A - 10/12/2021


Required a substantial amount of drilling as 4 of the 6 pre-drilled holes were an inch off. Fitment was off slightly and the cross member and bumper had to be taken off the vehicle to be installed. Both arms of the product were sticking through the box upon delivery.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you. It sounds like that the side brackets were knocked out of alignment which can happen while in transit to our facility or to you. We do have a FAQ that can assist with moving the side brackets of the hitch back into alignment to allow for installation.

2016 Ram 1500

Love this draw tight !!!
Very easy
to install , only took me about 30 minutes and that was because I had to locate my tools that someone had barrowed without my knowledge lol..
This will help save my bumper and tag from being damaged from my trailer tong also ..


I gave this hitch a 5 star rating, this is for the hitch itself.
The install was greatly added by the use of the fish wires for the bolts.
It took about 3 hours to install this hitch, the fit was extremely tight,
with a floor jack under the hitch and almost picking the truck off the floor
it still took a 4# hammer and a block of wood to persuade the hitch into the frame
after loosening the upper bumper crossmember bolts, the rearmost factory bolts then took two pry bars and four hands to get the last bolt started. Once finally started the bolts pulled the hitch up into position and swaged the hitch into the bumper braces.
The hitch seems to be well built and heavy duty the only problem is the alignment of the two rearmost holes and the extremely snug fit.
The hitch also looks good after the installation was complete, I didn't get a picture of the installed hitch, this was on my son inlaws pickup.


Best place to buy. Great prices. Fast shipping. And a lot of videos and other resources to make sure you’re getting the right parts for your truck.

2014 Ram 1500

Shipping was a little sketchy, as you can tell from the photo. Not etrailer’s fault...looks like the shipping company didn’t even slow down when they delivered it. Either way, all the parts/hardware were present. Pretty easy install and it seems solid. Haven’t hauled anything yet but I don’t think it is going to be an issue with this thing. Took a little longer than expected, mostly bc I did it alone. Watch the [online] install video. Helped a good bit.


Don’t buy. It will come bent and nearly beyond use.

Sorry it came flexedtorqued. You can use the steps in this article to get it back to form.

2017 Ram 1500

This hitch was terrible to install. Trying to install the hitch over the support none of hole lined up perfectly. We had to long ate the holes on the new hitch to bolt it on. A one hour job took 3-1/2.


The fitment was tight and snug, the use of a rubber mallet and a second set of hands is necessary. Construction is very stout and well built. My hitch arrived with some scratches to bare metal in the paint finish, kind of unfortunate since they were on the outside where they'll probably show rust soon. The two middle holes mounting to the framerails did not line up, I had to use a carbide grinding bit to widen the holes in order for the bolts to line up and thread in. With that added time, It took about 45min to complete. Fishing the carriage bolts through the frame was not hard at all. This overall fit well and will allow me to pull a trailer with my '12 Ram 1500 ST.


This hitch is a little bit more rugged than what i will probably need, but I’m glad I bought this one. Shipping was right on schedule. A few minor scratches in the paint but I blame the delivery driver. Hitch was slightly bent from being tossed around during delivery so it took a little bit of maneuvering to line the bolt holes up. Once lined up it went in easy. Probably around 1.5 hours for install time. 19mm and 21mm sockets. Pull wires definitely made it a lot easier. Video explained installation perfectly. Looks great on the truck, have not tried it out yet but I can’t wait to! I’ve bought a few products from etrailer and I’m happy every time. They know their stuff. I would definitely recommend this site to anyone!

2019 Ram 1500 Classic

Purchased for my 2019 Ram 1500 Classic. Took me about 4 hours to install, had to remove all the rear bolts on the vehicle to loosen the bumper enough to get the hitch receiver up (it is very tight, which is a good thing). Also be sure to remove the spare tire before trying to install (not on the instructions). Once I got it up in place, and got the 2 front bolts in, there are 6 bolts in the top (3 on each side). Of those 6, only 5 aligned enough to get bolts into them and there is 1 bolt hole that I can't get a bolt in. I'll have to drill it out in order to get it to fit. Contacted customer support, they provided me 1 video on install and also linked me to some methods to bend the hitch if it wasn't square. Disappointing quality for $[XXX] to now have it up and misaligned. Not sure if this is a quality issue based on the manufacture in Mexico or what, but I was disappointed in the product and lack of support. Great looking hitch though, hopefully it doesn't fall off my truck when I'm towing because I'm missing a bolt (until I can find a bit to try to drill through the bottom of it).


Hi I haven’t installed the product yet so I don’t want to give a rating but I had a big problem with how my item was shipped. Every piece of my order was just put into a big cardboard box so during shipping the loose items kept fumbling around and by the time I got it the receiver was poking out of the box and everytime I picked up the box it shifted around in the box. I’m not sure why bubble wrap or some sort of packing was not used to secure the items in the box. Very disappointed with that becuase this Was a Christmas gift for someone and the box was completely destroyed by the time I got the product. I’m hoping it wasn’t damaged in the shipping process because it Was free to bounce around in the box

    We have the Draw Tite hitch part # 41948 which is a confirmed fit for your 2016 Ram 1500 and has a capacity of 15,000 lbs but I would be surprised if your truck has this capacity or even the 10.8k capacity you are looking for.

  • Does Draw Tite Hitch 41948 Fit 2017 Ram 1500
    Since sometimes there is confusion between what a hitch and a reciever is I think best option would be for you to take a picture of the rear of your truck so that I can see exactly what's going on. Reciever and hitch are the same thing but sometimes people will refer to a ball mount as a hitch or reciever. So what we need to do is clarify the terminology and figure out exactly what you have. If your 2017 Ram 1500 does NOT have a factory hitch then the Draw Tite part # 41948 will fit and...

    To install a Class IV trailer hitch, like the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 41948, on your 2016 Ram 1500 you will need to have the OEM trailer hitch removed.

  • Will Aftermarket Trailer Hitch Increase Tongue Weight Capacity on 2014 Ram Longhorn Limited
    If your 2014 Ram Longhorn Limited features a factory tongue weight capacity of 760 pounds this cannot be increased by adding an aftermarket product like a new trailer hitch. Even if the aftermarket hitch has a higher tongue weight rating, you will still be limited by your truck's base capacity. Other components on the truck such as its engine, transmission, and axle axle ratio all contribute to the truck's capacity so replacing a single part will not actually increase its overall rating...

  • Recommendation for Removing Stuck Ball Mount from Receiver
    The best way to remove a ball mount that is stuck in the hitch receiver is to spray it liberally with WD-40 or PB Blaster, let it sit for awhile, and then alternate hitting it in various directions with a rubber mallet. It is best to let the lubricant sit for a little bit before using the mallet so that it has a chance to work its way into the receiver, and it may take quite a few times of doing this to get the ball mount to release. You can take off the OEM receiver from your 2011 Ram...
