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.

Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" - 75521

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (319 Customer Reviews)

Fully welded vehicle trailer hitch is strong and durable. Draw-Tite's Tested Tough guarantee ensures that this hitch exceeds industry standards. The combination of an e-coat base and a powder coat finish provides excellent rust protection.


Excellent factory match on 2007 Silverado. Only mod was to cut off the old harness mount and screw it onto the new hitch. Great product good value.


Good price and a good solution for our customer, who had a hitch that collected salt water from hauling a boat and rusted out. The truck was okay. This hitch is less likely to collect moisture and will be used to pull a travel trailer so it will be a great solution.

Great! No problems.
Joel - 10/21/2022


Replaced a worn out factory hitch on a 2012 Silverado 1500. Already had the old one off and in the scrap yard before this one arrived. Took about 15 to install. No need to use a jack or lifts, just lay on the ground and bolt it on. Only time will tell how well it holds up.
Would have given it 5 stars but the order was placed Friday night and even though it was in stock it didn't ship until Wednesday.
Including photos of new install and old one.


Excellent customer service,my first order with etrailer,what a pleasure, delivery was spot on,product seems great,haven't actually pulled a trailer yet,in my case it is a replacement,had the old one off already upon delivery,22 minutes to install from off the delivery truck,to clean up,perfect fit as promised,I say it went on without a hitch!!!! personally I would have liked to see the bracket mount plate doubled,would just seem stronger to me,posted is the old one maybe you can see what I mean,but I have zero I'll remarks,like a kid in a candy store,can't wait tu actually use it,I did the install the moment the delivery came up the driveway


Took 20 minutes to put on. You will need a 22mm deep socket, 3/4 deep socket, 21mm deep socket, and a torque wrench. I use a 3 ton floor Jack to hold one side in place while I lined up the holes bolted right up. Shipping was very fast to. Lake day tomorrow

Ben M - 10/08/2021


Good fit and easy to install. Removing the old hitch was the problem. PA RUST


Great price and perfect for towing my car to the track. Installation was about 30 minutes very simple. I can utilize my truck a lot better with this trailer hitch.

2007 Chevrolet Silverado New Body

Hitch arrived and met my expectations. Installation was simple (new bolts provided). Looks great!

2015 Ford Explorer

The install went perfect. The tow bar connection points lined up perfectly with the pick-up truck bolt holes. Very good fit with no issues.


Perfect fit just like the original.quality is good, Shipped quick and the price was the low. I'm very happy with my purchase. Sad to say but I believe the hitch will outlast the life of the truck. Any future purchase will be from here

2010 GMC Sierra

good quality, the original rusted out and failed with the trailer attached.

the hitch bolted on exactly as the old one, no sign of any rust yet.
E. R - 10/02/2022

2007 Chevrolet Silverado

Item arrived with no visual problems and all the hardware. Instructions were easy to follow and easy to install. I installed it by my self in about 1 hour. All the mounting holes lined up with no problems to be found. The hitch will be used for med to light cargo trailer hauling and a cargo carrier. This hitch replaces one which rotted off on my 2007 Silverado which I have included a pic.

As good as the day installed!
James - 08/10/2019

2003 GMC Sierra

Top quality hitch, easily installed in under 30 minutes.


Easy install, tough as nails and pulls my trailer loaded with my Jeep all around to multiple Jeep events.


Product seems to be built well but the installation holes was slightly off made it difficult to install. I had to use a rachet strap to get it in to place every thing lined up except one hole had to make it bigger


Came pretty fast. Price was good. Quality was very good. It fit great and hardware was good. I was completely satisfied.

1999 GMC Sierra

This is my second hitch in less than a year, The first one broke loose at the weld. I am hoping it was just a bad weld and the new one will be better. The hitch mounts very easy and is a perfect it, that is the only reason I decided to try another one.


Seems to be stronger than oem, bolts up same way. Only knock which is a big one to me is the receiver is welded in canted. Does this make a difference on how it works? Probably not, but not oem quality control. What does one do, bolt in the part and afterwards see it's wonky. Obvious disappointment.

2004 Chevrolet Silverado

The new hitch was great and bolted up perfectly But my biggest thanks is for the service and understanding of helping me send back the wrong hitch!!thank you again as I never was perfect To all at etrailer have a great year!


The square hole was sized small, barely got the hitch in with a sledge hammer. Don't know how I'll ever get it out.


This is a well-made hitch. Installation was easy. A second pair of hands to get the first couple of bolts in would be handy. Your only hassle is to remove the old 10-year-old rusted though hitch off the truck. I only had hand tools.

Its doning fine. We now tow a Coachman Apex with it.
John L - 12/30/2021

2005 Chevrolet Silverado

This hitch is an excellent value. It feels very beefy and well made. The steel is much larger and thicker than the OEM receiver that came off my 2005 Silverado due to corrosion. I really like that this hitch utilizes all 8 of the factory mounting holes, unlike some of the others which only utilize 4 or 6 of them. New hardware was provided, along with small plates to go inside the frame rail to better distribute the weight along the truck's frame. The bracket for the 7 pin plug is a nice extra too.


It bolted right up to the frame, everything lined up correctly and it's working great. Using a lift and air tools it took about 1/2 an hour to remove the old and install the new.

2007 Chevrolet Silverado Classic

After discovering original hitch was rusted with holes in it, I went on a search for a new hitch. etrailers website was super easy to navigate, and found many hitches that fit my truck. Ordering, shipping and installation was a breeze. Would order from again if need arises.


I purchased this to replace the factory hitch which had rusted out. It was very easy to install, probably an hour to remove the old one and install the new. Fits around the spare tire perfectly and is flush with the bumper.

  • Determining Tow Capacity of 2006 Chevy Silverado 1500
    Looks like the towing capacity of your truck is 3,800 to 7,700 lbs depending on how it's equipped. You'll want to check your owners manual with the engine size info of the truck handy to determine how much you can tow. Or you could contact a Chevy dealer. The Draw Tite hitch part # 75521 would have more than enough capacity and is a fit for your truck so it would be a great option. It's really hard to say how much longer your truck would hold out. If it was maintained well and you don't...

  • Replacing OEM Trailer Hitch on 2009 Chevy Silverado 1500 Z71 with Draw-Tite # 75521
    For a 2009 Chevy Silverado 1500 Z71 the Draw-Tite Max Frame Trailer Hitch # 75521 will be a great replacement for the factory hitch. It does require the factory bumper and factory bumper brackets for the correct fit. It will have the factory appearance but is actually a stronger hitch so I think your customer will be very happy with it. This hitch also has an e-coat base and powder coat finish to protect against rust so it should last longer.

  • Will The Draw-Tite 75521 Fit A 2007 GMC Sierra Classic 1500 With Aftermarket Bumper?
    If the bumper you ordered is a direct factory replacement, then there should be no issues with getting the Draw-Tite # 75521 hitch installed. Unfortunately, if it is not a factory replacement, we can't guarantee the fitment. All the hitches we carry are designed from the manufacturer to fit stock vehicle and parts. With that being said, you should be able to tell pretty quickly if the new bumper will accept the hitch. I included an install video we did on an 07 Sierra for you to check...

  • Comparing Class III Trailer Hitch Weight Capacities for a 2003 GMC Sierra
    There are many trailer hitch options for a 2003 GMC Sierra, the most notable difference between them is class rating. In general, the higher rated trailer hitch options will use more or stronger fasteners but that is not always the case as you have pointed out. I can't really say much about this as these specifications come from the manufacturer after their own testing but so long as you follow the instructions for said hitch and abide by the listed capacities there will not be any issues....

  • Will a Hitch For a 2001 Chevy Silverado Also Fit a 2001 Chevy Tahoe
    I have a solution for you, but a hitch like the Draw-Tite # 75521 that fits on a 2001 Chevy Silverado will not also fit on the 2001 Chevy Tahoe. The correct hitch for a 2001 Chevy Tahoe from Draw-Tite is the # 75725, which also has a Class III 2 inch receiver similar to the # 75521.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver and Other Parts Needed to Tow a Trailer with a 2009 GMC Sierra
    If your 2009 GMC Sierra is a 1500 then I recommend the Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver, part # 75521. It has more capacity than most of the hitches without adding onto the price. I've linked a video of the install on a 2010 Sierra which will be the same for you. If your truck is not a 1500 then let me know so I can make the correct recommendation. Also, if you need trailer wiring I recommend part # C55384 for a 4-way connetor or part # 30955 for a 7-way. Whichever connects to your...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness for Light Towing with 2009 Chevy Silverado 1500
    I would always recommend using a hitch instead of a bumper mount. A bumper mount is not adjustable and getting the trailer level is a big part of towing safely, additionally a hitch is a stronger and more secure method. We have a small hitch, that installs using 6 holes already in the truck frame and does not require any drilling. Average mechanical ability should be sufficient to install it in about a half hour. The hitch is Draw-Tite Hitch part # 75521 and it includes all the hardware...
