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.

This trailer hitch fit my 2014 Honda CRV perfectly. At 79 years old, I self installed the hitch with no assistance. The video on the etrailer web site made the installation simple. It is explicit and includes many time saving tips. The completed installation looks like a factory accessory. I am 100% satisfied from order placement to towing. Thanks etrailer.

I've been using this receiver for a year now to haul bikes. I use it with a one up bike rack. It has held up great on two cross country road trips and has not given me any cause for concern. I installed myself and found that to be very straightforward. I ended up building some wooden ramps to lift the rear end of the car up to give me more room for the install. Just some 2xs screwed together with an angle cut into one end. Other than that I found the comments to have some great tips for install in addition to the helpful videos provided by etrailer. I really appreciate the low profile nature of this receiver.




by:

I am very pleased with this hitch receiver. It is very robust and was pretty straight forward to install. It is either a 2 person install job or a creative 1 person job. I made use of a jack stand to help keep the receiver up against the car's frame while I worked on it. I use it to mount my bike rack. Will definitely come back to etrailer.com for my next hitch receiver.


Comments
It is a hitch receiver so not much to report other than it is still solid and holds my bike rack fine. No problems to report. It was well worth the money I paid.

Wow, what a great hitch. My wife and I plan on towing our bikes with this hitch. We already had a Thule bike carrier that fit onto the 2 inch hitch we have on our Chevy Silverado but sometimes we don't always want to take the truck. We looked at bike carriers to place on the CRV but they all seemed flimsy compared to what we had. As such, we chose to install the hitch. To start things off the price was excellent and I received the item within 2 days of ordering. I also received an email from the company indicating that if I had any issues, to please contact them immediately. A friend and I reviewed the online video (make sure you do this!!!) to install the hitch and moved forward with the process. Following the video and the instructions included with the hitch. we had everything installed within 90 minutes. Just some tips we would include: 1) make the cut into the underside CRV plastic larger than is shown, especially the width. This will allow you to easily place the trailer hitch into position. 2) You do not need to cut a 4 sided hole. Cut 3 sides and bend the plastic toward the driver so that it can be patched very easily with duct tape. I chose to spray paint the plastic and duct tape black but this is not necessary as it is not seen. 3) It was a little difficult to get the muffler hangar back into position once the bolts were tight. We had to loosen the bolts and push the hangar bracket through the hole in the hitch to get this accomplished. 4) We backed the CRV onto 2 small car ramps to allow us the ability to crawl around under the CRV much more easily. I highly recommend this. Overall, I am very satisfied with this product and would highly recommend it to anyone contemplating attaching a hitch to their CRV. I am not a "handy" person but was able to do this without any issues and no one getting hurt!! You can do it!!!

My wife and I used it to carry our bikes on a trip from St. Louis to Palm Springs last summer. It worked great and we plan to use it for the same bikes on our trip to Colorado. Thanks for the excellent product!!

2014 Honda CR-V

I purchased this last year for my wife's 2014 CR-V to attach a Thule bike rack so she didn't have to put the seat up/down and lug her bike in/ out of the back every time she went to the bike trail. It is very much as expected, very sturdy with solid attachment. Getting the muffler hangars on/off was a chore that took up most of the installation time, but other than that, installation was fairly simple. I used a Dremel to make quick, relatively clean cuts, then snipped the cut a bit wider where the bracket fit through, and finished it by drilling holes and putting in cable ties to keep it closed (pictures attached).


Comments
Absolutely no complaints. Hitch still looks like new and hasnt required any adjustment/tightening since I put it on. Very, very pleased. So nice to be able to buy a quality product that performs as expected.

The customer service was freaking awesome!!!! The package was actually boxed, shipped and on the road in an hour or so. I was stoked! Quick shipping, clear install instructions and a seemingly great product. Not to mention that this company saved me $xxx over any local provider. I definitely have been bragging about this purchase and will push everyone their direction with each opportunity I hear of.




by:

I was able to install the hitch myself (with a friend who has more tools than I do) and it took about 1.5-2 hours. I've had it for year, and it works perfectly with my bike rack. Price was great, function just as good. I'd highly recommend this hitch from etrailer.




by:

Fit & finish was perfect! After watching the installation videos the installation was pretty straightforward. A little tough for a 61 year old male! Looks good and seems very sturdy. Took me 3 hours start to finish.




by:

The part was easy to install, no issues there. However, I could not get the hitch piece into the receiver and realized that the square hitch receiver was welded off center so the 2" hitch wasn't fitting. I had to use a hammer and pound off the black paint coating and some of the metal until the receiver actually was able to accommodate the hitch (hitch still had to be pounded into receiver with a mallet). It was a huge pain. I have had to leave the ball and hitch in there because I cannot get it out. Ultimately, it works now, but welding on the product was poor.

Honda

I tried to install this onto my Honda CRV 2014 by myself. The bolts that come with it do not fit. I decided to bring it to a professional and cost me $XXX for the installation. What they did what the made a "+" sign incision at the tip of the bolt (a few millimeters deep). Then using the air compressed tool faster the bolt into the thread. Because of the incision, the tip of the bot can fit into the threaded hole on vehicle's body frame. etrailer should really address this unfit bolt issue because I have heard this complain from other customers too.

My main goal is to save money but I failed to do so because the bolts that come with it are slightly larger.


Comments
Often on older vehicles there is a build up of road debris and grime in the weld nuts. This makes it seem like the hitch hardware seem too big. The best way to remedy this is to do a thorough clean out of the bolt holes using a wire brush and a penetrative cleaner like PB Blaster.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 07/18/2022


by:

If you can take advantage of the installation videos before ordering as these spell out installing step by step. I viewed vehicles that were 2 years older and 2 years newer than the one I installed the hitch on and gleaned the necessary information while watching for snafus.
This is not my first time ordering from etrailer and will not by my last.




by:

Arrived quickly packaged securely. Followed video instructions. Left plastic shield in place and just cut out with sharp razor knife. Thread holes in car were clean. Although I did chase the threads with a brush, lubed them with WD-40. Hitch went right back in perfect. Need to order the trailer hitch wiring kit next. Thanks for a great product.

2015 Honda CR-V

This is the best company I have ever bought anything from online. I not only received my order several days in advance but I was also surprised at the quality of the product including everything from the way it was packaged and the hardware and very easy to understand installation instructions that it came with. Even though I didn't have any issues that would require calling customer service I am positive if I had needed any support it would be available based on the way they were in contact from the moment I placed the order until I received it and was also asked if I was happy or had any issues with my purchase. Not only was everything great with my order but it was much easier to install than expected. It fit perfectly and looks great on my vehicle. If you are in need of a trailer hitch or accessories I would recommend this company to anyone. Not only was it great quality but it was also cheaper than anything I have seen while shopping for around for over a week locally and online. It's great to know that companies like this still exist even if it is rare to find.


Comments
After a year of installing the trailer hitch receiver it is as perfect as the day I installed it. This is a product that after a year of making the purchase still gives you that satisfied feeling of knowing that you got a great product for even better price and I cant express it enough. Honestly if you are looking for a trailer hitch receiver you cant find a better for the price.

It's a bit low on my CRV, but this hitch receiver provides the maximum clearance possible. I only wish I didn't have to cut up the undercarriage sound panel on installation.

This could help prevent rusting in the long run (Minnesota winters get salty). The product itself is very sturdy. All the pieces were accounted for. I have absolutely no experience working on cars and I successfully went through the steps to attach the hitch onto my 2013 Honda CRV. The two most difficult parts during the process was lowering the muffler. The rubber take some muscle maneuvering to successfully lower the muffler. The second most difficult part was getting the hitch screwed into place. It is rather heavy (very sturdy). You definitely need someone to help hold the hitch up for you while you secure it into place with the bolts.

Side Note: I recommend screwing the bolts into place a little bit before attempting to screw them in while someone is holding the hitch in place for you to do so. If you have an older car there could be some rust built up by the muffler. The threading was stripped so I had to drill and re-thread the hole. It took a lot of WD40 and I also gently used a small file to help get rid of an extra corrosion. Good luck!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

2015 Honda CR-V

I had the 1-1/4' version of this hitch for about 5 years - since I have owned the vehicle. I purchased a Kuat NV 2.0 bike rack which needs a 2" (on our other car). But I wanted to be able to use the rack on our CR-V as well. So i removed the 1-1/4" hitch and sold it on facebook to someone in our cycle club. Also sold my Hanging style Thule Bike rack..
WRT to the hitch installation, I already had the hole in the underbody trim. All I have left to do is get some Black "Duck" tape to cover the hole. The tape I had previously held up for 5 years.
I was also familiar with the isolators for the muffler which you have to remove. There are two isolators, and ideally, you need to disconnect from the muffler, not the body for this to work, especially for the one that is through the hole of the hitch... However it is difficult to remove just that connection. So I suggest, remove that isolator from the body connection, and then you can get if off the muffler easier and then put back on the body. The outer isolator just needs to be disconnected either from muffler or body so the muffler can drop down enough for installation of the front M10 bolt. Important note: If you only disconnect the inner isolator from the body, and leave connected to the muffler, once you get the hitch in, you won't be able to connect the inner isolator to the body... If you read other reviews you will see that people had to remove the hitch in that situation - an unnecessary do-over.
The other thing I did so that I could install by myself was sit on the ground, with my legs under the car. I put the hitch in my lap and got it in place using my legs (thighs) and was able to connect the U-bolt and get the two nuts (washer and lock washer as well) in with some turns and that supported the hitch enough so I could put the M10 bolts in.
You should use a torque wrench if you have one. The M10 bolts required 38 Ft-lbs which is pretty substantial. Unfortunately there is no way to fit (my) torque wrench to get the M10 bolt that is over the muffler. After doing the other 3, I had a good idea of the torque to be applied, using the socket wrench that fit in there.
The U-Bolt nuts were only 30 FT-LBs. The hitch looks great..
WRT to E-Trailer - they are the GO-TO.. I cannot speak more highly of this company. I have used them for years. This product was ordered Monday and received Wednesday.. If you have any questions, call them, they answer the phone and their videos are outstanding... If I worked for or owned a company, I would want them to be like E-TRAILER!

2014 Honda CR-V

This hitch was very easy to install on my 2014 Honda CRV. It fits great under the back and is nicely hidden. The instructions provided were clear and easy to follow. My only comment with regards to the instructions is that It is critical to actually measure the area to be trimmed on the Appearance Panel as the diagram provided on the instructions could be misleading based on the holes and ridges in the appearance panel. Measure twice (or 3 or 4 times in my case) and cut once! Based on some other reviews, I also cut only 3 sides on the trim area so I could close it up by drilling a couple of holes and using zip ties. The removal and trimming of the Appearance Panel took the most amount of time for me as I did not want to make a mistake and wanted to end up with a good looking installation which I think I have accomplished.

I installed this hitch so I can use a hitch mounted bicycle rack to haul our bicycles to nearby bike paths in our state.

I highly recommend etrailer.com! The site is easy to navigate and has so much helpful product information and videos, both installation and product reviews! This is a great and valuable resource that I can't say enough good about. My order was processed promptly and I received my hitch sooner than I expected. It was well packaged and arrived in great condition.

1 year later and the hitch has been working great! It is so nice to have the hitch on my CR-V to carry our bicycles on. The hitch still looks like new on my CR-V. This was a great purchase!

Five stars to etrailer and their representative, Noah, who made sure we got what we wanted in a timely manner. Our order was delayed because only one item was not in stock. Once Noah explained that we should choose another hitch for our C-RV (which we did for about the same price), our order was on the way with UPS 3 day Select. Not only are we happy with Noah’s outstanding customer service, the hitch went on our C-RV without a “hitch”. It fits perfectly and looks like it was always there.

Haven't used the hitch receiver yet, however, it was pretty easy to install. The instructions were easy to read. All parts came as described. The installation instructions that come in the product package are more detailed than online. The online instruction video has no sound on my computer, which is probably why they include the script. Customer service is ver good. The answered my questions the day of asking them. Good transaction overall.
Like I said, I haven't used the hitch receiver yet (I need to buy a trailer first), but it is heavy and sturdy. I figure the pic will help give you an idea of what to do when cutting through the plastic undercover to install the unit and leave the cover on.


Comments
Ive had and used a trailer for about 2 months on my CRV. No issues what so ever. Everything is working well. Customer service is still excellent-I recently called to check what I ordered and what the hitch could tow, and got immediate response. Great purchase. One suggestion: perhaps some instruction on how to properly attach and load a trailer to such a hitch, as it would help prevent any mishaps from misuse of the hitch itself. Heightweight/and positioning of trailer load on the trailer is important so as not to overload the tongue weight on the hitch. thanks.

Fit my vehicle perfectly. I installed it myself in less then an hour.
The design and finish is great. It's seen one North East winter and still looks like new.
I would recommend this trailer hitch receiver to anyone researching for a competitively priced quality product.

2014 Honda CR-V

It took about an hour to install this on our '14 Honda CR-V. Installation was straightforward. I watched the installation video first. I opted to cut an access hole in the bottom plastic cover instead of just removing it as this is a permanent installation. The measurements were about 1/2" off. In my case, I had to trim an additional 1/2" from the side of the cut-out that is toward the center of the hitch. After that, the holes lined up fine.


Comments
Still works great.

Great! Arrived on time, the afternoon before a big cycling trip. Hitch was packed well, no surprises. Installation was super easy minus the Honda CR-V part which involved lots of plastic and their clips. Fit well and no issues including the 1000 mile road trip. The plastic I needed to trim (splash guard underneath), my box cutter was perfect.




by:
2016 Honda CR-V

I have a 2016 CR-V and the Draw-Tite hitch installed without problems. As suggested by other reviewers, instead of cutting a rectangle out of the appearance panel under the rear of the car I cut three sides (leaving the fourth side as a 'hinge'). I used an oscillating saw which provided more control than using a utility knife. The video did a good job of showing how to install the hitch. Don't forget to tape the flat washers on top of the hitch over the rear-most hole on each side. After cleaning out the threaded attachment holes in your car run one of the bolts in and out to be sure it runs freely. I rested one end of the hitch on top of the loosened muffler (as the video shows) and used a jack to support and raise the hitch until it was high enough to reach the U-bolt which I attached loosely. I snugged down the two bolts on each end, then started tightening the U-bolt nuts, moving back and forth. On my car tightening the U-bolt nuts pulled the hitch up by about 1 inch before it was tight against the tie-down loop that the U-bolt goes through. Then I used a torque wrench to tighten all the nuts to spec. I then put a couple of pieces of aluminum roof flashing above the 3-sided flap of appearance panel, drilled a few holes and used pop-rivets to attach the flap to the flashing, closing out the hole.

For the wiring I ordered the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector, Item #118561. The installation video was very helpful, but the built-in wiring connector on my car was behind the upper trim panel (almost to the window) not behind the lower trim panel as shown in the video. It took quite a while to get all the wiring in place, routed so the trim panel supports and attachments wouldn't hit it. The lower trim panel actually has a small rectangular cut-out at the bottom for the 4-pole flat connector to slide through to allow the connector to be stored beside the spare tire. If you forget to install the extra fuse in slot 10 of your under-dash fusebox then the running lights on your trailer will work but the turn signals and brake lights won't.


Comments
Its been a year and Ive used my trailer hitch many times. I really like the Draw-Tite feature that keeps the hitch from rattling in the receiver. The rubber hitch cover does a good job of keeping most of the crud out of the receiver. Im very satisfied with all the products I received.

  • 2015 Honda CRV Tow Dolly Compatibility with Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver
    The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75742 for your 2015 Honda CR-V as well as the other 2 inch options are more than capable of towing a tow dolly and a 2,600 lbs vehicle. The issue is your vehicle is only rated to tow 1,500 lbs, so even though the hitch is strong enough, you will need a different vehicle to pull it.

  • 2015 Honda CRV Draw-tite Max-frame Trailer Hitch Receiver Installation
    According to the manufacturer the belly pan requires a rectangular gut of 8.5 inches by 4.25 inches. You would need that 8.5 length for the bracket, but you may be able to make that slit thinner if you were to maneuver the panel around the bracket prior to install. Unfortunately the manufacturer can't give me those specifics as they designed the install for the cutout, so I recommend starting small and basing it off the inside measurement then working your way out for the width needed....

  • Towing Capacity of Honda CR-V
    I'm not sure which year your Honda CR-V is but I saw you looked at the trailer hitch receiver that fits the CR-V from 2012 to 2016 so I checked a manual for the 2016 model. It states, on page 353, that the maximum towing capacity is 1,500 pounds or 680 kilograms. The hitch you looked at is a Class III hitch rated up to 4,500 pounds, part # 75742, but you're still limited by the capacity of the CR-V. The higher rated hitch will not increase the vehicle's capabilities. If you can tell...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2013 Honda CR-V for Carrying Bike Rack
    For carrying a bike rack the Draw Tite hitch part # 75742 would be the best option. Unlike the Curt hitch for your vehicle this one does not require a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack. It's also a 2 inch hitch which is the most popular hitch size we offer and has the best capacities.

  • Does Appearance Panel Trimming for Draw-Tite Hitch on 2015 Honda CRV Cause Corrosion
    The appearance panel on your 2015 Honda CR-V needs to be trimmed to install the Draw Tite hitch part # 75742. It doesn't really make the vehicle any more susceptible to rust though as the appearance panel wasn't water tight to begin with. It does not have a water tight seal to the vehicle so in reality it's not going to allow that much more water in so it really wouldn't make a difference.

    As long as your daughters 2014 Honda CR-V has the tongue weight rating to carry the weight of the scooter and the lift you could use a hitch like the # 75742 to carry the scooter carrier. This hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs, you will need to consult the owners manual of the CR-V to determine what Honda recommends as the tongue weight capacity and be sure not to exceed the lower of the two figures.

Since there was no need for the additional install bolts to achieve those capacities they just aren't used.

  • Trailer Hitch with 2 Inch Receiver Opening for a 2016 Honda CR-V for a Bike Rack
    For your 2016 Honda CR-V and bike rack that requires a 2 inch hitch I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75742. This trailer hitch will be compatible with your Thule bike rack. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. The hitch itself has a tongue weight capacity of 525 pounds but the vehicle is likely rated for 150 pounds tongue weight (confirm with the owner's manual) so you would be limited to the lower rating.

  • Availability of Class II Hitch Receiver for 2014 Honda Crosstour to Allow Towing 3000-lb Trailer
    We offer only Class I trailer hitch receivers for your 2014 Honda Crosstour, such as Draw-Tite # 24852. You can view all using the link provided for you. These are suited to light duty towing and for use with 2-bike racks and other accessories. Although your Crosstour may share a power train with other Honda vehicles its rated towing capacity according to the online manual I reviewed is only 1000-lbs for the 4-cylinder version and 1500-lbs for the 6-cylinder model. In this case the limiting...

  • Re-Installing an Exhaust Hanger Bracket on a 2012 Honda CR-V to Install Trailer Hitch # 75742
    There could be a couple of different things that are preventing finishing installation of hitch # 75742 on your CR-V. First, if you look at the instructions it says to remove the outside isolator first, then the inside isolator. When re-installing them, reverse this process by installing the inside one first, then the outside one. If the issue is more of space it is possible that the hitch has flexed during shipping. If the bolt holes do not line up then that is probably the case. You...

  • Appearance Panel Trimming for the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75742 for a 2013 Honda CRV
    The drivers side bolts will not bolt through the appearance panel. There will be an 8-1/2 inch by 4-1/4 inch cutout in the appearance panel for the drivers side bolts. This cutout will give you enough room to bolt the hitch on and leave the appearance panel in place. There will be some insulation type material on the backside of the appearance panel, but you can just cut through that material as well. Check out the photo that I attached that shows the orientation of the appearance panel....

  • Maximum Towing Capacity and Tongue Weight of a 2013 Honda CR-V
    The owner's manual I found online for your 2013 Honda CR-V states that the towing capacity is indeed 1,500 pounds. For the tongue weight the manual then states that it should be no more than approximately 10 percent of the trailer's weight. This means the maximum tongue weight for your Honda is approximately 150 pounds. Since I used an online version of the owner's manual you should verify with your printed copy that it says the same. Adding a trailer hitch receiver, like the Draw-Tite...

  • How to Find a Trailer Hitch Installer for 2013 Honda CR-V Locally
    Trailer hitch installs are pretty basic for more mechanics. What we normally recommend for people is to use a local mechanic in your area with a good reputation.

  • Bolt Size for Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch 75742 on 2014 Honda CR-V
    The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75742 referenced in your question, which is confirmed to fit your 2014 Honda CR-V, uses four M10 X 1.25 X 30 CL8.8 hex bolts. If you happen to have any trouble threading the bolts into the frame of your vehicle, cleaning the weld nuts will typically resolve the issue. Because vehicles tend to pick up a lot of dirt and road debris beneath the frame, a good soaking with WD40 on the holes along with a wire brush treatment will allow the included...

    For carrying a bike rack the Draw Tite hitch part # 75742 is the best hitch to use. Unlike the Curt for your vehicle it does not require the use of a stabilizer strap with non-supported loads like bike racks. I attached an install video for the hitch for you to check out as well.

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Honda CR-V
    Draw Tite and Hidden Hitches are made by the same company so they are the same. All of the hitches confirmed to fit your 2015 Honda CRV will be the same distance recessed behind the rear bumper. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper measures 2 inches on all of the hitches. They all are going to be about the same in terms of visibility. The cross beams of the hitches will be in the same general area on all of the hitches so none of them would be noticeably more...
