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.


etrailer.com Technical Support

At etrailer.com 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.

What you see is what you get. Well made, could have some slight more bracing but I’m used to 2 inch hitches not 1 1/4. So tbh it exceeded my expectations so far. The install wasn’t to bad the muffler was a slight pain but those pull through wires that thread onto the carriage bolt were amazing!!! My friend and I made up our own fitting instructions as to save much more of the heat shield and body pane underneath. Photos attached!




by:

We have now ordered two trailer hitches from Etrailer. We find them easy to communicate with for questions and the hitches arrived quickly and fit as described (though one hitch came with directions for another model but that was quickly resolved). We found that it was not necessary to cut as much of the heat sheild as directions indicated, which was nice. We would definitely order again from Etrailer. Thank you!

2021 Kia K5

Draw-Tite via etrailer won the race to produce the first receiver hitch for the 2021 Kia K5. I've been waiting a year for this and am very happy with this product. I had it professionally installed and the installers encountered no problems. It looks and works great.

Sent me the wrong hardware bag.
The hitch
looked pretty solid but I cannot fit up until I receive the correct hardware.


Comments
I am sorry it has taken such an effort to get you the correct hardware. I will make sure Customer Service sees this and ships that out to you as soon as we can.

2022 Kia K5

I took my hitch down to local KIA dealer in Sierra Vista AZ 85635. They said that it may be the wrong one. Can you verify that the one you sent fits a 2022 KIA K5 GT Line. I have it scheduled to have them install it on 7/21/22. Also is there any welding involved.


Comments
The Draw Tite hitch is not a fit for the GT models of the Kia. I checked and I do not have another hitch that I can offer. I will have our customer service team send return instructions to you.

by:

The hitch itself is very strong looking but the packaging when I received it was damaged and there was no packaging around the hitch it was just thrown in a box you may wanna think about wrapping the hitch a bit better so it doesn’t break the box open




by:

The hitch was of high quality and etrailer delivery and customer service were great.
Unfortunately, my particular model of the K5 was not compatible with the hitch. There was a fuel vapor canister mounted on the left/driver side rail which was to be used for mounting the hitch. I recommend double checking your model as not all are equipped this way. (2021 K5 GT Line AWD).

We had to do a little welding for it to fit our Kia K5, but it’s a solid choice for hauling our recreation equipment!

Where good product and low price

2021 Kia K5

The hitch is solid and heavy as heck.
The
instructions and advertisments are a bit misleading because it says no drilling required. But carving and boring holes is required. Also for the k5, cutting the 10 inches of the plastic and heat shield is not really necessary. After you install the hitch you can carve out a much small channel so the hitch can fit through. I made the mistake of cutting the plastic and heat shield as the instructions said. Turns out I didn't really need to cut that much. So I zip tied the pieces back together and cut a section out about 3 inches wide by 7 inches long. Looks much better and that under protection is still there. Overall the installation is a pain but seems solid so far.




by:

Draw-Tite is the first manufacturer to make a hitch receiver for the Kia K5. I had issues with the website finalizing my purchase and I called etrailer at 7pm on a Friday and the order shipped that night and got to me on Tuesday and that was a day earlier than expected! Caroline B took my order and was awesome getting my order in and completed. I was very impressed with the whole process of the purchase from eTrailer! I was well informed via email about the status of the order and it's delivery.




by:
2021 Kia K5

Delivered in a timely manner.. The only, and very important, issue I had was that the instructions that came with it was for a Kia Forte instead of the K5 as needed. More difficult to install than indicated. I had to have it professionally installed at a Kia dealership. Not only did the exhaust system and rear bumper have to be removed, they also had to drill holes in the frame in order to fasten it. Once installed, it looks good and will serve it's purpose in holding my bike rack. Just wish I hadn't had to overspend for installation.

Right product for the right price




by:

The product was delivered within a few days and I was extremely happy about this as I have been trying to get a tow hitch for my new car before going on vacation this week. I could not get one anywhere I checked. Thank you etrailer.

Amazing customer service! I had a slight problem with the install but other than that everything lined up perfect and it looks great

Review from a similar Sportframe in Trailer Hitch


Price from etrailer was good as always. Directions were nice and clear. Ended up doing my own trimming and was able to save one fastener location and more of the panels. Hitch itself was decent overall. Very solid, the wide brackets were the same thickness of the class 3 I bought at the same time for my truck. Had a missing chunk of paint on the visible edge of the safety chain bracket and started surface rusting the first time it rained. Will have to sand and paint that. Would be nice if they gave 2 long and 2 short pull wires instead of just 4 short ones you have to twist together (minor gripe, I know).

Review from a similar Sportframe in Trailer Hitch


The trailer hitch was very easy to install with the exception of two holes i had to enlarge in the frame. With that exception, i am well pleased with the trailer hitch.




by:

Review from a similar Sportframe in Trailer Hitch


Install date-7/1/2021
Vehicle -2021 Mazda
CX-30 2.5T

Overall fit is excellent but installation is a bit more complex than other hitches. The concept is the same as most hitches-you have some bolts and hardware to fish through the frame using some music wire that is coiled to thread on to the bolts. It works very well and secures the hardware throughout the process. So as long as you are careful and deliberate there is never any danger of losing the hardware inside the frame of the car. Also typical is the requirement that some pieces be removed in order to access the mounting points on the frame. In my case it was the exhaust hangers for the muffler and a little trim piece below the rear bumper. The instructions say to permanently remove the trim piece but instead I chose to cut it out for hitch clearance and reinstall. I recommend this as the piece was easy to cut with a utility knife and does tie the rear bumper cover down and keep things stationary. The mounting holes for the hitch lined up perfectly and the final product looks great.
There are two reasons for the 4-star review rather than 5-
>Installation is a bit more complex than other hitches. Rather than a simple bolt on operation you need to enlarge two access holes in the frame of the car to get the hardware into the vehicle. This requires use of a die grinder or something else that can grind the thick frame material in tight quarters. The process is outlined in the instructions so it was not unexpected during the process but I would rather not grind off the factory rust protection.
>The hitch does interfere with one of the muffler mounting brackets on my car. The rear driver side mount on the muffler is about .5mm away from the hitch once installed and the movement allowed from the rubber exhaust mounts allowed the exhaust system to contact the hitch every time the car hits a bump. It is very loud and constant inside the car and completely maddening in a matter of seconds. Fortunately I had a new set of die grinder bits from the installation and ground a recess in the muffler mounting bracket that solved the problem. The amount of material removed was about 2mm so I do not think I will have any structural repercussions as a result.

Overall a great product and will do the job of hauling a bike rack perfectly but not 5-star worthy due to the modifications to the vehicle necessary for install and proper function.

Review from a similar Sportframe in Trailer Hitch


Sturdy hitch for my Elantra. Installation was less extensive than explained on directions. Did not need to remove the fascia and trimmed it in place. Pushed the muffler slightly to the side without lowering it to fasten the hitch to the frame. Will use for a carrier and light towing with a Class 1 trailer. Looks just like the pictures that I saw in other reviews.

  • Hitch Options for a 2021 Kia K5
    For your 2021 Kia K5, you will need the Draw-Tite # DT63MR. The Curt # C11402 is specific to the Optima line as the 2021 K5 is wider, lower, and longer than the 2020 Optima, so the hitches are quite different between the 2 vehicles.
