Rugged, Matte Black Finish

The sturdy steel construction is protected with a matte black finish for added durability. This unique powder coating gives etrailer hitches a carbide-like appearance and a rugged look that sets them apart from traditional glossy hitches. In addition to being rust and corrosion resistant, the tough matte coating hides dirt, scuffs, and dings better than a glossy finish.

This fully welded trailer hitch receiver bolts onto your vehicle's frame with no welding required. Matte black, powder coated steel is durable and corrosion resistant and creates a rugged look.


I have a 2014 HYUNDAI SANTA FE GLS which has dual exhaust and technically wasn't covered in the installation video or vehicle fit list. I didnt realize this till I began to install it and once I did I figured what the heck let me try. Ill say this is does fit and bolted right on once I got it in place. The only issue I ran across was the hitch hitting the driver side exhaust cover mounted on the bumper, but all I had to do was remove 2 10mm bolts to get it loose, slide the hitch in place and insert one bolt to hold it and once everything was torqued I went back got the 2 10mm bolts to thread back in. All in all its a solid hitch that one person can install if your willing to get a little dirty. I recommend it for the build quality, ease of installation, and great pricing.

This hitch is not showing that it is a confirmed fit for the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS, it is only a fit for the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. This could be the cause of the exhaust cover being in the way.
-- Etrailer Expert Katrina B - 05/19/2022


I gave this 4 stars and not 5 for only 1 reason, the custom fabrication was just a hair off when trying to install. It took a second person to help pull it into position so we could tighten the bolts. Other than that the price, the fast delivery, ordering process and just the actual hitch are all worth 5 stars. They even gave me a 20 dollar refund on my hitch after purchase because 2 weeks later the price dropped and they returned the difference with no hassle at all. Great company great products!

Hyundai Santa Fe

The fit was perfect for my Santa Fe. No drilling or force fitting. Directions were short, clear, and to the point. 2 sets of hands are better than one, you'll be done in about 40mins.

Great fit. Easy install.
Andy - 04/14/2022


Thank you for the custom trailer hitch receiver that I purchased from your company. If I didn’t know better I’d believe you secretly came and measured my Kia, and if I had not had to let down my spare tire to install the two bolts on the drivers side, it would have been perfect.

2016 Hyundai Santa Fe

It was perfect. Took a long morning to get it installed on my car, but it's perfect and the setup wasn't too bad (hyundai 2016 sport awd). Had to get a little dirty with the spare tire, wheel well mud flaps, and the exhaust, but then it was smooth sailing. 10/10 recommend


It is an etrailer product, so not much more to say. Hitch is very well built and heavy duty. The finishing looks great in the vehicle, and the round tube is a perfect fit.

Installation took 1hr:20min, and that is because I did not have one of the tools required to get the bumper pin out of the way, so had to improvise.

etrailer video was paramount for me to complete the installation. I recommend you watch the video prior to installing yours.

I am ready to tow and take our bikes for a ride. Thank you etrailer, for putting money back in my pocket!

2014 Hyundai Santa Fe

Very well made and attractively priced, no need to pay more for the name brand. Like the matte finish. Excellent communication and tracking. This is my second e trailer hitch. Good stuff!


Excellent product. Easy to install. (about 30-45 min) to install. Personnel was easy to work with and made sure I was satisfied through out the entire process. I will be working with them again for all future trailering needs.

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

Very high-quality hitch but the real benefit for me is the instruction videos, tips and tricks and demonstrating the average do-it yourselfer can install these hitches and wiring. Once again fast shipping and great selection of products.

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

First, let me say I'm very impressed with the whole delivery process. First I received automated notice of the order, typical, then I received an email with the tracking number when it shipped, somewhat typical. However, on the tracking email they supplied two "How To" video links that were specific for my personal vehicle, wow! I had a clear and concise instructional before the part even arrived! And, I didn't have to go find it on my own. Because of this great addition I had an idea of how much time, which tools and the general requirements for the task. I have to admit, it added to the excitement because my concern about what I may need to do was eliminated. In fact, I installed my unit the day it arrived.

In my personal case, the steel was slightly sprung, probably from the welding. It took a little fight and some bumping with a mallet to get things going together. Once I had a few turns on every bolt I just took my time and did about 3 turns to each in a pattern. This was to ensure the bolts were somewhat evenly pulling everything to its final position. The part is a great fit for my Santa Fe. I will definitely recommend and shop with E-Trailer in the future. If you are considering this trailer hitch, I definitely recommend it.


Order arrived in time. No issue during the installation, everything works fine.
Thank You for the great service


Easy fit after two bolts are trimmed off. Installed without lifting car. Release last two exhaust support. Enough space to pass unit and catch one bolt. Raise opposite side and bolt up. Replace plastic panels on both sides with new push pins.


Hitch works perfect. Great price and great customer service


Box was wide open and crushed upon delivery. No instructions or packing slip. Hitch looks OK. Hopefully none of the parts will be missing.

I apologize for the state of the box. Attached are instructions for this hitch, and within those instructions is a parts list. Please let me know if you are missing any items.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 12/21/2021


Great Hitch, Solid Construction. Will definitely do more business with eTrailer.

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

Installed it by myself with the help of a few buckets to hold it up while I got bolts started. Had to pound on it a little to get it aligned properly. I just OK alignment, but could have be the vehicle as much as the hitch. I found that putting in the upper long carriage bolts first was smart. The video I watched recommended putting in the lower bolts first. Looks good and appears to by sturdy and well made.


Fit our Sante Fe perfectly, make sure you get the model and trim version exact, used penetrating oil to soak the inside of the bolt holes in the frame, and then used a battery terminal brush to clean out the holes, if too much rust has built up i would suggest chasing the holes with a tap. Been great so far, the only thing we had to do is get an exhaust diverter, we found out with a plastic cargo carrier tarp that the exhaust will melt anything around it.


Easy to install and fits my vehicle per fectly.


The install video was what sold me.Installation went exactly as described.So proud to have this hitch. Thank You


Perfect, exactly what I needed. Now I can attach my bike rack! Thank you.


Actually submitted my review for this hitch on the wireing harness review page. Robert was very helpful in helping me to complete my order. The hitch arrived much faster than I expected and thanks to the etrailer how to videos, it installed in a breeze. Looking forward to using it this summer with a small trailer.

Still satisfied with the hitch and wiring that I purchased from etrailer. We normally carry our bicycles but also used it to haul a small trailer. Would definitely recommend this product.
Edward - 05/16/2021


It was a bit of a pain to get the bolts in as I remember it, took longer than advertised for sure. A combo of unused threads on the car and general fitment.

Would I recommend this hitch? Yes, absolutely. Once fitted it is excellent. I am so extremely pleased and with our 2015 2.4 i4 Kia Sorento, we easily tow our 8ft pop up trailer, 4 dogs, kid and everything we needed for a weeks vacation.

Note: The Kia Sorento has soft rear springs. I am considering options for raising it, like airbags, or helper springs. However, hitch and car have performed flawlessly over a year and we are very happy. Highly recommended product.


Just open the box yesterday and put it on with my wife's help. The video was a great help and I watched it one time and was able to put it on my vehicle but had to take off the other trailer hitch first. But the trailer hitch was heavy a little bit but that's what it calls for. The trailer hitch I had on there first was for a bike cycle rack. The trailer hitch was a perfect fit and I love it! I will tell all my friends about this trailer hitch and where to buy it from. Shipping was very fast. Got it in about 2 days, from when I placed my order.


This hitch looks great. Very low profile which nothing attached. I don’t have any specialized tools and very basic vehicle mechanical skills and I was down with installation in about an hour. Got this for adding a 60x24 cargo carrier on a 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport for some extra room for camping trips. Thank you etrailer for an amazing product!


The hitch installed perfectly. The installation instructions were spot on and everything lined up. The hitch works beautifully and I would recommend it.

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Trailer Hitch

  • Why Does Trailer Hitch for 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Have Higher Capacities than Vehicle
    This is a really good question, but basically the hitch is overbuilt for the vehicle it fits. The main thing to keep in mind is that any towing setup is only as strong as it's weakest component. So if your hitch has a higher capacity than the vehicle (or vice versa) you are always limited by the whatever the lowest rated component is as that's what would fail first. The reason the hitch has higher towing capacities is because the hitch was designed to fit your vehicle and to be as strong...

  • Shipping Weight of Trailer Hitch Receiver E98841
    The shipping weight of the Trailer Hitch Receiver # E98841 is 34-lbs for standard ground shipment within the USA.

This may add a couple of pounds to the shipping weight but...
