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.

I bought for transporting my E-bike, and other

Richard - 06/22/2022


This is a great quality product with excellent installation support that I have come to expect from etrailer! My hitch receiver came with all hardware and ingenious "fish wires" to install this unit making it a simple procedure. For a person like me doing this in my driveway I can say that having an assistant, while not necessary, would make this install much easier. Other suggestions to future installers is that the latest etrailer video for this Draw Tite is a must watch. Additional suggestions are: leave all 4 rubber muffler hangers on the top frame hanger posts, twist the rearward pair to point to the front of the car before mounting the unit and have a deep and shallow (standard depth) 19mm or 3/4 inch socket for your torque wrench since room is limited.

Works well as expected. Will be buying from etrailer in the future.
Mark P - 12/06/2021


Fairly simple installation with clear instructions. Took me about an hour doing the install alone. Didn't need to lift the car off the ground, and I used a jack to lift the hitch while I bolted it down. Hardest part was torqueing down the bolts. My torque wrench was relatively short, so I needed to assemble my own version of a breaker bar to get the bolts tightened to specifications. All in all, very impressed with the part, installation, and price!

2019 Mazda CX-5

I couldn’t be any happier with this purchase. The drawtite hitch is solid and is even hidden well beneath the rear bumper, so that’s a plus. It took the mechanics less than 30 minutes to install it since it was a custom hitch. I’ve always wanted a hitch specifically for carriers and bike racks, now I have one and am very satisfied with my purchase. Thank you Etrailer for all of the research you all do and for the very informative site. It cuts my work in half. Here is a photo of my Mazda with hitch installed and an overdrive sports rack hooked to it.

I am very pleased with this product!!! I have not had any issues, it’s been reliable and still looks like a bought it yesterday. Absolutely no rust and since I do not have a carport or garage, it’s constantly exposed to outdoor conditions in Western NC many love this area, it’s temperate rain forest. Anyway, I do not regret purchasing! Love it! I keep a 3- bike rack carrier hooked up at all times bc I ride a lot! Every other day or so. The bike I own is a radrover, so it weighs about 60lbs plus. Also, I have two regular bicycles for cruising, which are lighter, but regardless, the hitch has proven to be strong and durable. One happy customer.
Melisa - 08/08/2021


Product is exactly what is shown in photos and install video. I have the 2016.5 CX-5 and other than fighting for a good angle to move the exhaust hangers went pretty smoothly. Did the full install prep and clean up in about 45 mins. Def could have used another set of hands but my speed jack definitely helped. Doing my girlfriends car over the weekend

2021 Mazda CX-5

2021 Mazda CX 5 Installation Review: Overall, the installation was pretty easy and straightforward. The installation video on etrailer was more than enough to install the hitch at home. All you need is an extra pair of hands to hold the hitch in place when bolting. Installation can be done without the use of jack stands. My only complaint(reason for 4 stars) with the product is the ECoat and Powdercoat. It already peeled off on a couple of trim edges


Great trailer hitch! Strong and well crafted. Perfect for our 5 bike rack, and could clearly handle a trailer or other heavy load. Instructional video was clear and comprehensive. And it looks great. Based on this experience, this is a quality company that takes pride in providing quality products. My compliments to the staff.


This hitch does NOT fit the 2021 Mazda CX-5. While it can be installed, it touches the muffler hangers. This causes a loud rattle in the car when you go over a bump. I talked to e-trailer about this and they recommended bending the muffler hangers or modifying it in some other way that they could not explain. If you have to modify your vehicle to make something fit, then I don’t think that counts as custom fitting.

This is a simple fix that you can do or a muffler shop can do for you. Please take a look at this help article regarding the issue:
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 06/10/2022

2018 Mazda CX-5

Install was not simple. Three guys and a lift. Had to put hitch on twice due too the fact we took off the muffler rubber holders. Can't get lower ones on with hitch in place. The electrical plug and play omg that was a joke. The entire left and right sides of back interior had to be removed to get to the "plug" and "play" connectors. I rate this as the most difficult hitch I've installed. I've done the BMW x1,x3 and Jeep Grand Cherokee hitch installs from your site...and they were seemless...awesome..but the mazada cx5 really sucked.

I recommend watching our video install on a 2019 Mazda CX-5 before starting on the installation for pointers. We also have a great FAQ on tips for installing hitches.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 02/15/2022


Installed this myself on my 2021 CX-5 Signature about a year ago and have been pleased with it ever since. As described, it requires no cutting or modification, only the removal a small plastic trim piece under the bumper that seemed entirely unnecessary. A second pair of hands helps to lift the receiver into place, but otherwise an easy one-man job.

I did encounter two small hiccups along the way, though:
The install video on etrailer is for a slightly different receiver than the one I got, even though it says it should be for this same Draw-Tite receiver. The bolt pattern is a little bit different and the included instructions are brief and not super descriptive. I figured it out, though, not difficult just confusing at first because of the difference.

The second hiccup was probably my own mistake. After installing, the exhaust would occasionally bang against the receiver while driving, especially over rough roads. I got under there again, loosened up the bolts and pushed the receiver as far toward the rear of the car as possible and tightened it back up. It only shifted a fraction of an inch, but the banging is entirely gone now. The fitment is very tight so if you experience any banging or clunking try that out!


This hitch was easy to install with the video instructions etrailer provided. I did not have to jack my Mazda CX-5 but the wheels are 19-inch. It was helpful to have someone to help hold the hitch in place while tightening the fasteners. Leaving the rear rubber hangers on the top while facing them forward was a good tip I saw in other reviews. I also ordered a bike rack that was just as easy to put together. Very satisfied with this company.


2021 Mazda CX-5. Owned this trailer for a year. Installation was made easy with the included wires which helped feed the bolts through the frame. Bought this mainly to use with my One Up bike rack and it’s worked great. Sticks out far enough to be easy to acces but not far enough to be in the way. Hardest part of installation was lowering the exhaust but it was still manageable with an extra hand. Would buy this again in a heartbeat if I had to make the purchase all over again.


Solid equipment, easy installation and great instructive video!


Shipping was very fast and the items were well packaged. The online video to help with installation was spot on and very helpful. Install on our Mazda CX-5 was easy with the included hardware kit. All and all took me about 45 mins to install the hitch. I did it all in my driveway with the help of my 2 sons and my wife.

2016 Mazda CX-5

Product Was good and fit perfectly on my car.Installation is super easy as with instructions and videos.This is my first time installing a hitch so initially I struggled as due to lack of help. After a little research and with the help of a friend Installed in 15 Mins(Research and initials trail not counted).Things to remember.
1)Car ramps will help where we can pick from [hardware store].
2)Flat head screwdriver and soap water is super good option for removing Exhaust from hangers.
3)Rubber bushes should be on top hooks and facing front side of the car(Not back side to-wards trunk).
4)Remove one facia screw(plastic clip) for easy adjustment which was not demonstrated in the video but advised in the manual.
5)Better to keep the fish wires of the back bolts to avoid pushing them inside the frame.(C-retention rings will help where manufacturer is not providing).
6)Second person will make the job easy.

Paint Quality is very very poor which is pealing out as mentioned by others in this forum.
Installed my Kuat rack which comes with stabilizer and fits perfect.
yet to test on the roads.

Pics or not so clear.

This is one of the best thing i have chosen
Kamalakara - 06/09/2019

2014 Mazda CX-5

Shipping was fast, install was a breeze. My wife helped me to lift into place but aside from that the videos were spot on on how to install it onto my 2014 cx5. We plan on using this for our camping trips. Next purchase will be a cargo carrier.

Perfect!!! After a year and several campingmoving my oldest into college trips it has been a blast. If I could I would buy 2!!!

2022 Mazda CX-5

Good hitch with a bad paint job (package was intact but the hitch had significant paint chips out of the box, which required repainting before install). Etrailer gave me a $xx discount for this, appreciated. Install was quite easy, about 1h job with 2 people on my cx-5 2022. Good fit and looks good overall.

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.
-- Etrailer Expert Katrina B - 03/24/2022


Very nice build and appearance. Nicely boxed for damage free shipping. Fairly easy installation after watching etrailer video. Am looking forward to years of reliable use.

I continue to be impressed with this hitch. I couldnt ask for anything better.
Tommy - 05/22/2022


The trailer hitch receiver I purchased has been nothing short of amazing! I was skeptical about ordering a trailer hitch during a time when so many shipping delays and product shortages were occurring, but the trailer arrived in super fast and I was able to install the hitch with ease. I can't stress enough about how happy I am with the hitch and the service from etrailer.


The product I received was bad quality. The hitch hole cover was off so I couldn't use it. Nothing fit in the hitch. Of course this was discovered after installation. etrailer sent another one but I had to pay for removal and installation again. Check the product before installation.


Install went great, but having a second set of hands to install would be helpful. I used a bungee to hold up one side while I bolted the other into place and it worked. Would recommend etrailer and the hitch!

It’s great! Use it all the time. Looks as good as the day it was installed.
Jesse - 02/12/2022


The hitch is quite well designed. You can only see the receiver from the back and the whole set up is well integrated into the vehicle and it seems very strong. This is definitely a two-person job. At least one person must have very strong hands to remove the muffler from the hanger. Remove the muffler side of the hanger. I used a spray lubricant and channel locks to take off the muffler from the hanger. I did not need to remove the electrical wire shown in the video. Took us about two hours. Would probably take us 40 minutes to do it again. If you want a hitch, this is the one to get.


I was able to install the hitch by myself. Took me about 1 hour and the most difficult part was the muffler rubber attachment.
The wires included are a very clever solution getting those screws inside the car frame!!
Overall I had fun installing it and it’s a solid hitch.
I’m in my mid 40’s and fairly fit. I can see this being not so easy for folks not very handy and in bad shape but you can get it installed by a shop for 50$ If that’s a problem.
Shipping was incredibly fast and got it in 3 days.
100% recommended


Held up great after a year of New England weather! No rust. Relatively easy install on Mazda CX-5 but definitely good to have a helper hold/balance it in place when you fit the bolts thru the holes and start the nuts.

2011 Nissan Rogue

This is the 2nd hitch I have purchased from etrailer and both were a positive experience. First for for a 2011 Rogue and now a 2022 CX5. Both times the hitch arrived on time or before schedule. All parts were included in the shipping box and product was as advertised. Install video on line was helpful. Install was easy. Took an hour and a half and I am no mechanic. Install on both vehicles were done without lifting the SUV. I did need help with fitting the hitch onto the bolts due to the weight, awkward position of lying on my garage floor, snug fit and I did not want to push the bolts back into the rail by accident. I did borrow my friends socket set and torque wrench because my small craftsman set could not produce enough torque to tighten properly. Overall, this is the only place I would purchase a hitch from.

  • Carrying 4 Bikes with a Hitch Mounted Bike Rack on a 2016 Mazda CX-5
    Bike racks that are used on a Class I trailer hitch receiver are only allowed up to 2 bikes. This is because the additional force from weight being extended out from the vehicle is too much leverage for the vehicle to handle and could cause damage to the hitch, rack, and/or vehicle itself. So a bike rack for 4 bikes should not be used (And often will not fit) into a Class I trailer hitch.
