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.

The product itself seems to be made well. The problem is with the shipping. My box came with 2 large holes and the ends of my hitch were all banged up. I get that it’s going under my car and going to get all banged up but you would expect better packing on a heavy object.

Thank you for reaching out. I have sent your information along to our customer service team.

Overall excellent. Couldn't be any happier with the install. All the bolts lined properly like, it's factory made. Great product by etrailer and would 100% re-buy again.



by:
2019 Toyota Highlander

Very simple to install. I did in my driveway without dropping spare. Had a little help holding up side while installing bolts on other rail. Only tough bolt to put in was one right above muffler. Very happy with the way it fits and looks. Highly recommend



by:

Installed in no time. Great instructions. This hitch was installed in a 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid.



by:

This hitch is bombproof. After one year it is still super solid. It is low profile and looks great. I’ve pulled several things with it but mostly use it for my bike rack and cargo tray. It was a lot of work to install but the instructions were detailed and accurate for my vehicle. I would definitely buy it again.


Comments
Still works great. Still solid. Would definitely buy again.

This trailer holds a good amount. It was a fairly easy install. My only issue with the trailer is once you install into the hitch it moves around quite a bit. So the items placed into the trailer need to be exactly the same weight on both sides or it wobbles quite a bit. Not too great when taking turns while out traveling.


Comments
It sounds like that you are experiencing movement when the hitch accessory is placed into the receiver. I recommend using an anti rattle lock such as part # 63232
Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches - 3-1/2" Span
$40.99
or an anti rattle device such as part # RM-061
Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2" Trailer Hitches
$37.20
. This will help to eliminate movement and prevent the wobble that you are describing.

by:

Highest rated capacity for weight. Good instructions, easy installation and looks good. Receiver may be a little low for towing and the OEM looks like it would mount higher but at twice the cost and would need new rear fascia so I opted for this model and a kick up hitch ball assembly to correct the elevation difference.



by:
2017 Toyota Highlander

Great hitch. Installation was a breeze - I didn't need a lift, or a jack, or anything. Drop the spare tire, take the flashing off, pull the hole plugs, muscle the hitch up, hand tighten, then torque. Cut the flashing (the directions were totally accurate) and reinstall. Super simple.

It looks sharp (although I may remove the etrailers sticker, as it's kind of tacky), and hopefully performs just as well as the hitches that cost twice as much. If there are any issues noted when using the hitch I will update this review.



by:
2019 Toyota Highlander

First, completely bolt up hitch with no drilling required I have installed. I watched the installation video for my car and read the instructions. It was an easy job and looks nice. I also purchased the plug-and-play light wiring harness. It works well and was easy to install.



by:

Easy bolt on installation. The etrailer install videos gave me an idea of what I was up against before the hitch arrived. The hitch looks to be of great quality, and it fit perfectly with no issues. I like the fact that it is painted satin black to help it blend in with the bumper cover.



by:

Loved how easy the etrailer site made it to find to find compatible hitches for my car’s make, model, and year! Shipping was fast - I had it in less than a week, earlier than expected - and communication from the site about my order status was good. Installation was fairly easy (with two people) and went smoothly thanks the the installation video provided on the site page. The hitch itself looks good and is pretty visually unobtrusive on the back of my vehicle. I haven’t had the opportunity to haul anything big with it yet, but it works great with a Thule bike rack and seems very sturdy!



by:

Looks great and installation was fairly simple. Would definitely buy from again if I ever had to put a hitch on another vehicle. Way better looking than a uhaul hitch.



by:
2019 Toyota Highlander

I haven’t used the hitch yet but I know it will work fine and looks great. My wife was afraid it would stick out and look bad on my 2019 Highlander but you can see in the pictures it barely passes the bumper.
The hitch had a get small scratches that I covered with flat black rust oleum and it matched great. After looking at the pictures of installed flat 4 prong plug I didn’t like the metal strap so I drilled and taped 1/4 28 threads in the hitch. I think it looks much better. I put silicone around all the screws and bolts. ( You do need to put the flat 4 prong in before you install the screws and that’s probably the hardest thing about this.) I ran the wire to a rubber plug in the left rear floor. You push the plug up in the hole after you install and mount the 4 prong. The 4 prong will not go through the hole. I used a floor Jack to raise one side of the hitch while in put screws in the other side then went to the other side and put those screws in. I did have trouble getting the last screw in no matter which side I tried. I finally used A little persuasion and got it in. I’m 76 years old and it’s not too hard, I did it all by myself. I did have to wait awhile to finish Wiring it up because the wiring comes in 2 pieces but the box I got didn’t have the part with the flat 4 prong plug. The box was sealed from the factory so it wasn’t etrailer’s fault. Just call them and sent a picture and they sent a new box. Great costumer service.



by:
2017 Toyota Highlander

Excellent service, received the hitch in two days. Took my time with the install because I was doing by myself on floor of garage. Two jack stands positioned under for weight support of hitch acted as second set of hands. I read a review where an installer left passenger side exhaust deflector flap on instead of trimming and that worked for me too. Just push upward with hitch and you get to retain most of it's function. The sturdiness and look of the hitch is great. This is my second hitch from etrailer and would not hesitate on another purchase.



by:
2019 Toyota Highlander

Pain in the ass to install the holes don't line up very well and the exhaust is in the way to even try to torque anything so had to push exhaust out of rubber hanger to get socket in there to torque anything. Overall it's on and will work but holy shit never trying that again myself


Comments
The hitch sounds like it was a little flexed which occurs during shipping sometimes. Attached is an article explaining more about it. Sometimes the rubber exhaust isolator needs to be moved during installation. Once installed, if your hitch receiver is too close to your exhaust, you can bend the hanger a bit to give you some clearance. I attached an expert answer on how to do this.

I received my hitch reciever promptly via UPS. I was able to swiftly install it within an hour. I did have one snag, where I was not able to get one bolt to thread. I did, however, manage to screw on and tighten the other five with my torque wrench. The bike rack is now mounted to the hitch receiver and is ready for my bikes to go in tow.



by:

My grandson installed without any problem. I bought a bike rack and a bike and I’m ver happy with the ease of putting the rack on the hitch



by:

Fits beautifully and is an easy installation, only note that would make product better is if a bracket was on the driver side to hold the wiring harness



by:
2018 Toyota Highlander

I really like the web site. Being able to watch installation videos, download the installation instructions, and read about past customer's installation experiences really helped me feel comfortable in tackling the job myself.

I just received the hitch this morning. My only criticism is the poor shipping container for the hitch. It wasn't strong enough for the hitch and arrived broken and completely open on one side. It looked like the hitch had fallen out of the box at least once and had several scratches on it.

It's a hitch! The scratches wouldn't have bothered me except they were deep enough to go to bare metal. That's going to lead to rust. A lot of rust if you don't paint over those areas.

Customer service understood my complaint and offered to credit me for a bottle of touchup locally or to send me a bottle.

It would be nice to have the hitch better protected for shipping. Or, maybe they could ship a 1/2 ounce bottle of touchup with the hitch?



by:

This mounted extremely well, and as solid as anyone could want. Fit perfectly.
Biggest issue was simply that it is truly HEAVY duty - but was easily raised with a floor jack -then smooth sailing! Works great with my bike rack and 18'boat trailer - Absolutely no issues . The tiny bit of plastic underbody removed was just a place for dirt to accumulate and is better off gone anyway. Love it! Thanks for a really greatttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt product.



by:
2014 Toyota Highlander

The fit was perfect and installation was very easy. I am not a great mechanic, but I watched the installation video before purchasing the hitch and decided to give it a try. Before the hitch arrived I did the preparation work as shown in the video. Then when the hitch came I had it installed in 15 - 20 minutes. I was a little concerned that I wouldn’t be able to get it in place without help but was able to slide the side by the tailpipe in place and let the tailpipe support it while I got a bolt in on the other side. I have purchased several items from etrailer and they all have worked great. I particularly like the installation videos that a specific to the vehicle.



by:
2017 Toyota Highlander

The trailer hitch said it can be used with a full size spare. I have a 2017 highlander with the 19in rims. A full size spare can not fit. The donut spare that comes with the car would not be able to be pulled straight up due to the design. If you need to send it back shipping is not covered even though it was advertised to do something it should. Ended up with Toyota hitch, it was way more expensive. Although more expensive it had additional bolts on the side that will make it way stronger. Everything did come on time with correct parts.


Comments
I will have our customer service team reach out to you. As long as the spare tire is on a steel rim versus aluminum rim it will fit.The aluminum rims are too wide.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 12/20/2021

by:

The hitch was delivered in 2 days. I installed it in an hour. I like that it's a tubular bar instead of the usual block of metal. Also liked the fact that it's bolt on using existing fittings instead of drilling new holes or welding. You have the choice of removing or modifying the plastic cover on the driver side so it fits. Only had to cut out about a 1 inch wide strip from the plastic to modify it so still able to use the cover as intended.
The other nice fitment is that it only protrudes past the bumper by about an inch tops. So walking into it not really an issue.
Have no intention of towing anything but wanted a nice hitch for a lateral bike rack instead of hanging them on the vehicle door. This hitch will work nicely while looking good. I highly recommend the custom hitch.



by:

The hitch ordered was delivered super fast and went on with NO problems at all. Everything matched up and the job was fast and simple. I ordered the wrong wiring harness but I'm sure returning it won't be a hassle!

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Trailer Hitch



  • Does Weight of Trailer Hitch Affect Vehicle Towing Capacity
    The weight of a trailer hitch does not affect the payload capacity of a vehicle. We've asked our hitch manufacturers about this is in the past and they have told us that essentially the hitch becomes part of the frame so it's weight does not affect any of the weight capacities of the vehicle. This hitch part # E98844 that you referenced weighs 43 lbs. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Should Undercoat on Frame Be Scraped Away Before Installing Hitch
    When installing the etrailer # e98844 on your 2020 Toyota Highlander, you'll need to scrape the undercoat so that the mounting flange of the hitch and the vehicle's frame member are in direct metal-to-metal contact. If this isn't done, the bolts won't torque properly and will not stay tight.
