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.

Arrived damaged. Insufficient internal packaging. When you allow a heavy metal item movement inside a fiberboard box, vibration in transit will cause the edges of the item to wear through the box. The external packaging you used is sufficient to ship this hitch, but internal packaging either needs to not allow any product movement, or effectively cushion any movement between the box and the hitch.

Customer Service will reach out to you.

the product arrived, but the box arrived in very poor condition and the hook has some damage to the corners, as you know it is a product that costs money and should be better packaged, I want to know what I should do if I return it or what I do. I attach the photos. I think they should be more detailed with so many criticisms that are made regarding the packaging. I wait for your comments


Comments
Customer Service will contact you. I would cover the scratches with anti-corrosive paint to prevent further rust.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 05/04/2022


by:

The quality of the product is very good, but packaging is very poor. All the paint was ground off the corners of the hitch. I will have to touch up the paint, to help delay rust from the winter roads. Luckily the wiring kit stayed in the box and didn't fall out of one of the gaping holes in the box. The UPS driver as said all their boxes look torn up.




by:

The part was about 1/8 inch bend in and it gave me a little bit of hard time to make it fit but and the end it was well designed and the holes match perfectly , the only complain I have is that the price had change about 30 dollars cheaper and when I email Carol C with the screen shots of the website, she completely ignore it and I haven be able to get a price adjustment. Bad customer service.

I am sorry we ped the ball on emailing you back. I see that you spoke to us via phone and we explained our Lowest Price Pledge as shown here:

Fit the car 2021 Rouge platinum., that's the main thing, all holes lined up and bolts fit, two big issues, the hitch blocks the rear hatch opening sensor, should have been built with a y style yoke coming together in the center. Also the stinger recepticle does not bend up and follow the lines of the bottom bumper trim. So it sticks out like a sore thumb. I bought a hidden hitch for my maxima that does that and gives better clearance and looks better.

2022 Nissan Rogue

Package was opened up by Canada post but the hitch was not damaged or anything. Fast delivery and installation was a breeze. I think it took me 30 minutes with a ratchet and 19mm socket. Didn’t even lift the car or took anything off. Outstanding service and good quality hitch. You also can’t beat the price from etrailer. Good purchase.




by:
2021 Nissan Rogue

Excellent hitch great quality. Only problem was the shipping box was damaged and the hitch had paint missing in some spots do to the damaged box. Maybe bubble wrap will protect these hitches from further nicks and scratches. Thanks


Comments
I recommend touching up the affected places on the hitch with a rust resistant paint. This will help to prevent rust and also you will have it on hand for regular hitch maintenance.

I’m a retired foreman from a natural gas company.I’ve spent years around steel pipe ,welding etc. this hitch is made with good quality steel.the welds are very professional. Installed with a friend @15 minutes. Just laying on the garage floor..great hitch ,very easy to install .2021 Nissan rogue




by:
2021 Nissan Rogue

Very satisfied with time from order to when I received the hitch! Like I saw on other reviews, the box was very damaged which cased the paint to chip off in about 7 areas. More packing is definitely needed so the hitch will not get damaged during shipping. Not installed but will finish review after installing


Comments
We do recommend using Rust-Oleum paint to cover the scratches to prevent rust. Customer service will reach out to you.

Perfect fit, zero issues. I put it on by myself in my driveway using a few blocks of wood under the middle to hold it up in place while I put the bolts in. The hardware was good quality with the washers having a locking element so I feel confident it’s on there securely after torquing it to spec.




by:

Package arrived box was destroyed. I had to sand, prime and repaint parts of the hitch. I've order a few of your hitch's but never had one delivered like this.




by:

Positive: The hitch took 10 minutes to install, fit perfectly. Negative: Box was torn up and hitch was scratched up just like all the reviews say. You would think etrailer would beef up the packaging for shipping. Almost ever review I read mentioned this problem!




by:

Went on easy. Instructions were good. Good stuff




by: 07/16/2021

Clean and custom fit with no cutting or major tools required. Had install complete within 20 minutes of UPS driver drop off. No lift or Jack even needed, only a 3/4” wrench or socket is all that is needed here!




by:

The hitch / receiver installed easily and looks great with one exception. The receiver looks like it's not facing directly in the middle. I checked the installation and that is correct. It's not to far off but you could check your specs and assembly to better position the receiver.




by:

Heavy duty item. Easy to install. Husband installed within 20 minutes. Recommend this to anyone with 2021 Nissan Rogue.




by:

Very easy installation good quality built hitch 45 minutes to install no vehicle modifications required

Package was pretty well ruined and mounting bracket was scared up and paint was worn off. The hitch seems to be very well made ,that is the reason for the good rating.i was very disappointed in the delivery condition. I would buy from etrailer again super hitch

The hitch shipped immediately, arrived quickly with all parts. Mounted up quickly with a couple floor Jack's to hold it in position. My overall opinion is its a very well made hitch. Thanks etrailer.

2020 Toyota RAV4

I first came to etrailer becuase I heard many good things. However even then I thought I could do better. So I went to [online store], got a hitch that was told 100% fit to my car and it actually didnt.

Long story short you really can't beat etrailer. They provide a few options for you, tracking, install instructions, and their customer service is great. Response to my question was less that 24 hrs and thats pretty good in my opinion. I will be back for when I need my roof rack.

Recommmend them above [online store].

Not installed yet but ordering and receiving products was great




by:

The hitch and harness fit perfectly went on without any problems, and the shipping was fast.




by:

Great product, easy install, bolt holes lined up perfectly. Very satisfied.




by:

Installed it 2 hours after it was delivered. With one person helping, it took 30 minutes to complete. Looks great!

2017 Nissan Rogue

The trailer hitch was very easy to install on my 2021 Rogue. Nothing had to be removed like it was on my 2017 Rogue. I did this in my driveway with only a car jack to hold it in place with I got a few bolts started. The instructions say 30 minute install and that's about what it took. The hitch is very well made also.

  • Recommended Hitch for 2021 Nissan Rouge That Works With Hands Free Liftgate
    The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # DT85MR is a great option for a 2021 Nissan Rouge and what I recommend using. It should still allow for the hands free liftgate to be operational but you will need to now place your foot on either side of the receiver tube.

  • Should Anti-Seize Compound be Used When Installing a Hitch?
    We cannot recommend using anti-seize compound when installing the Draw-Tite # DT85MR on your 2021 Nissan Rogue. Though it is rare, bolts can back out when this is used. Especially when used to attach to something that will vibrate and move around a little when attached to the frame of the vehicle. I know that sounds kind of weird, but hitches are designed to flex a little with the frame of the vehicle when going over bumps or rough roads.

    The Draw-Tite # DT85MR and etrailer.com # e93ZR Class III hitches will be evenly matched in weight capacities for your 2021 Nissan Rogue, so we can disregard the capacities for this comparison. Especially since your Rogue can tow, when properly equipped, up to 1,350 pounds and a maximum tongue weight of 134.9 pounds. The big differences will be the install.

  • Best Trailer Hitch Receiver & Wiring Harness For 2022 Nissan Rogue
    For your 2022 Nissan Rogue the best trailer hitch receiver is definitely the option from Draw-Tite: - Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT85MR The reason I like the Draw-Tite # DT85MR over the Curt # C24HR is due to the better clearances. The Draw-Tite has 1/2 inch better ground clearance (11-3/4" to top of receiver compared to 11-1/4"), but significantly better bumper clearance, measuring 4-1/2" from hitch pin hole to edge of bumper compared to Curt's 6-1/2".

    The Class III hitches we have for your 2022 Nissan Rogue include the Draw-Tite # DT85MR and the Curt # C24HR. I recommend going with the Draw-Tite over the Curt because it sits about 1/2" higher off the ground and the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper on your Rogue will be about 4-1/2" as opposed to 6-1/2" like we see from the Curt. This means you'll have better clearance when it comes to your bike rack. If you don't already have a bike rack I highly recommend the...
