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've only used this hitch for a cargo trailer, but it has worked beautifully for that. It is nestled just a little deeper than the bumper, so I never hit it with my shin, but it's still pretty easy to put in the locking pin. I was very satisfied with the product, though installing by my self was pretty tough.



Have a large family, even a minivan doesnt have enough storage sometimes. Since our van didnt come with factory roof storage rails, and the aftermarket kits didnt have a big weight rating, I opted for this hitch and bought a cargo rack to go with it and weve used it on every single vacation. Its been a life saver!. We can easily put a cooler and a storage tote on the cargo rack, and all of our non-weather proof items in the van and just drive. We pull up to a rest stop unload the cooler and food tote, enjoy lunch and were back on the road. The trailer hitch has worked perfectly for us even just for a cargo rack! So glad I took the time and investment!

@Nick We're glad to hear the hitch is coming in handy!


I have yet to install the hitch so I can’t speak to the quality. However there was a significant part that was exposed from the box upon delivery. This could be the fault of UPS but also maybe not packaged well. Hopefully there isn’t any damage.



Although the hitch arrived where part of it was hanging out of the box. Again maybe the fault of the delivery company, customer service did reach out to assist or correct any problems. However, everything was just fine. The hitch was in great shape, installed easily, and has performed as needed. I would definitely recommend.


I have not installed the hitch yet but it looks just like I expected and my towing capacity is only 4000 lbs with my vehicle but I would easily bet this hitch would be fine at twice that. I have other trucks with hitches no heavier than this that will pull that much.


Etrailer has receiver hitches down to a science. I'm incredibly impressed on how every hitch I've installed fits perfectly. The instructions both manual and online are a great advantage for installation.

Dodge Grand Caravan

Using it on my dodge caravan minivan with the swing away hitch and tire carrier. Good quality product and would recommend it to others. And Courtney helped me pick out everything I would need for my project. I’ve been shopping at etrailer now for 20 years and they are the best!

2008 Chrysler Town and Country

I installed this hitch receiver in less than 30 minutes. It looks great on my 2008 Chrysler Town and Country. Thank you all


Our Etrailer trailer hitch has been perfect. We have used it often throughout the year with no problems. Would not hesitate to buy from this company again! Highly recommend.

2020 Dodge Grand Caravan

This is my second hitch from I am a return customer because I was satisfied with my first hitch. This one was even easier to install. I put it on in about a 1/2 hour in my drive with out a jack or second person. I will plug in the wiring tomorrow. I remember how easy that was the first time. I am a little OCD and will run the power wires from the battery inside pex tubing under the vehicle just like the first one. There was nothing hard or surprising with this hitch. I am happy, happy, happy!



It is holding up fine. I use it every week.


Tucks up sleek under the bumper. Easy install. Works great. Recommend air helper springs if towing heavy


No brainer install, just watch E Trailer video & have the right tools. I have installed 2 of these save big $$$ over dealer install

2015 Dodge Grand Caravan

All the hitches I have purchased always fit without additional work. Great quality and fast shipping THANKS


This was easy to install and fit perfect on my 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan


2016 Chrysler Town & Country van.
easy installation. Only 5 bolts for the hitch itself, 3 bolts to displace the exhaust/muffler. It's better if you have a 2nd person to help lift it into place, but I managed to get it close enough with 2 standing 5 gallon buckets and a 2 X 4 board piece. I jacked up the back of the van and placed on hack stands. A breaker bar or impact wrench is highly recommended. Get some cardboard boxes to lay on the ground which makes it easier for you to slide around on. I plan on using this for a hitch carrier, and once I add the towing wiring, I can use it for a Harbor Freight utility trailer. Customer service was great, received hitch sooner than expected.


Hitch still looks great, and is holding up very well. We use it for a wheel chair lift.


I have purchased several trailer hitches from e trailer. All have been manufactured well and install as per instructions. This one was for my Chrysler minivan and installed perfectly following instructions. Tow hitch barely visible below rear bumper as per picture.


About a year ago I purchased this for my wife’s 2013 Chrysler town and county van so she could haul her and the kids bikes. It was easy to install when following the video and does not rattle or have other issues. I would buy again and found best price and good service at the time. I have not pulled many trailers as the wiring kit and process did not seem easy and at the time was also pricey. I hope to relook at the wiring this year. For bikes. Is excellent


Works great for my 50+lb ebike.
wish the rack would weigh less.

2019 Dodge Grand Caravan

Well made, quality hitch. Perfect fit for our 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan. Arrived quickly and well packaged, despite box being a bit beat up, due to the weight of the hitch. etrailer also wrapped the hitch with packaging, and included instructions. It can be done fairly easily on the ground, depending on how big you are. The hitch bolted up perfectly, using the bolts already installed on the van. Clearance between the hitch and the bumper was perfect, no cutting or bending required with this hitch. Very happy with etrailer,


When hitch for my 2014 T&C got to me the box was torn up so I thought there might be damage. Nope it was just fine. Very very well built, nice welds, great craftsmanship. The mat black finish is really nice looking and it look like it will hold up well. The hitch fit up under the van really well all you can see of it is the 2 inch receiver. NICE! Thanks for an inexpensive, well built, nice looking hitch!


Easy installation. Good quality



Still holding up great after a year of use. Solid with no signs of rust.


The box was delivered to my house, severely damaged and the reason for this is it was very poorly packed. It was merely just placed in a cardboard box loose so we could bang around the whole time. It was being shipped to me come on etrailer you’re better than this.


I installed it myself. I only needed to remove the first 3 bolts holding the exhaust system. The hardest part was removing some of the older bolts on my car - they were frozen in place - but I hit the bolt with a blow torch for about a minute and then came off easy. It would be easier to do with two people but I did it all by myself using blocks of wood to hold up each side.


It was exactly as advertised. Easy DIY install with basic skill level.
Thanks for a great product for a fair price. Al

2013 Dodge Grand Caravan

Still going after one year. Getting the bolt under muffler installed and torqued was a bit of a challenge. Just have a bit of patience and flexibility. Installed on a 2013 dodge caravan.


Perfect fit for my van
