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.

2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Excellent fit and finish. The listing is a bit misleading, it says all hardware included but it is not, it makes you reuse factory bolts which weren't on my truck (bought used and looks to be removed by previous owner) so I recommend to check to see if the factory bolts are installed on your truck. Customer service was excellent, they were going to take the item back on return so I could order the draw tite hitch which comes with the bolts but I opted to buy the bolts ($36) at the dealership. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase from e-trailer again!


Product arrived quickly and instructions were very clear. The hitch reciever bolting pattern matched my truck exactly Will feel very confident as we head out to explore Yellowstone and the west next summer.


Fast shipping, got it a day early. Just installed it. Easy install, very happy with the hitch..

2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

The 1st hitch somehow got lost in transit through UPS. It took over 2 weeks to have the issue looked into after not being delivered and etrailer requesting a search by UPS. Once a 2nd hitch was approved to reship, I followed the tracking up to the truck being on our street. When I went out to meet the driver I was concerned by the appearance of the being damaged, but because of the strong design of the weldment and the way the hardware was heavily taped to the hitch by the collector at etrailer, everything was fine and was able to get it installed on my truck with no problems.


At the time of my purchase I could not even find one locally in my area I went online this was the best deal when I received it it's extremely high quality easy installation great product would recommend it to anyone thank you

2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

I just installed my trailer hitch a couple days ago on my 2017 Chevrolet Silverado pickup and it was very easy. I watched the 5 min. video prior to installation and it was exactly as the video showed. With the help of my brother-in-law we had it installed from start to finish in about 20 min. The quality of construction looked good and should suit my needs completely and the price was great. My local Chevrolet dealership wanted $300 just for the hitch and $50 to install it and it only cost me $150 to buy it on your site and No installation cost. I would recommend this site to anyone.

2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Super easy installation


Best price I could find online… fits perfect and made of quality metal…. Love the matte finish also .


I submitted a five star rating and I'm extremely happy with the fastest delivery in the easy installation. The only problem I had was trying to download the Finish photo where's my rating and for some reason it wouldn't download it after three tries. Thank you for everything and I highly recommend etrailer to anyone. Again I gave it a 5-star rating thank you for everything.


The trailer hitch is great and bolted on perfectly.

2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

40 minute installation all by myself! This is the second hitch I've bought from and both products were outstanding! Thank You! 5 stars all day long!

2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Hitch was delivered promptly and I like the matte/textured finish on it. Easy install and pulls anything you hook to it.


great hitch and install was seamless!


Watch the video and you’ll be done in no time! Drop the spare and get someone to help hold it up while you get a couple of nuts on. Great product and quality construction means this receiver should last.


Product fit great but dissatisfied with ups box was all ripped up my pig tail was out of the plastic container!

I apologize for the state of the package. Was anything damaged inside?

Great product. Easy to install. Perfect fit

2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Before the product, some words on the service. I had multiple interactions with a customer service queen named Nicki (sp?) and she was awesome. Super knowledgeable about the products and about navigating the website (which was easy), and actually listened to my questions rather than telling me what she thought I should hear. Give her a raise and have her train people.

Now the product: I ordered late in the day Tuesday and my shipment arrived Thursday about noon. I watched the installation video already, so I went to it. Took me about 30 minutes to install the hitch and another 3 min. to install the 7-way/4-way plug my truck needed, all by my lonesome. I have all the tools needed and have been accused of being handy, but the install was exactly as easy as the video showed. Two people and a lift would be great, but putting a 2x6 on a floor jack and putting the hitch on the 2x6 worked great to lift it into position. Jacked right up, putting the factory studs in the holes. Wiring plug is idiotproof, so nothing else to say on that.

Only head scratcher is the recommended torque specs on the instruction sheet. I followed the [manufacturer's specifications] but I could easily get another 1/4 to 1/2 turn plus on all fasteners after I hit the mark. Maybe a response to me and something in FAQs might help clarify on this.

Overall, a terrific buying experience. No complaints yet, but I only used it to pull a few small trees out this afternoon. I presume it will pull my boat and trailer just fine, and the bolts will not get loose. But my torque concern will mean I'll have to keep an eye on it. Good work,

I did speak with our in house engineer, and another hitch manufacturer for verification and the torque specs are based on federal standards. The hitch hardware should only be torque to the specifications, and not beyond because it can be over torqued and can break or damage the hardware if it is over torqued.

Easy to unstall!

2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

This product was a great purchase for my application!
etrailer made it easy to compare several different options that were specific to my truck, and it was easy to select the one with the tow ratings I needed for my customers needs..The model I selected was actually rated to surpass the load ratings of even other more expensive alternatives elsewhere .., couldn't be happier with the fit, finish and appearance of the hitch.
They shipped promptly and even assisted me very promptly in clearing up a question I had regarding the hitch I purchased .
Shipping was fast, the pricing was great and I will absolutely be a customer again soon.
Thanks to all on the team at etrailer for a great purchase and for solving my question so quickly too!
Best regards ,
Joe Turk,
Owner: Fairway Auto Sales


Extremely easy to install , didn't have to remove or change anything on vehicle from factory as the etrailer hitch bolted right up.

I would definitely recommend this hitch to any


My product ps arrive very quickly. Once I received it I had this on my truck literally within 45 minutes. This was including the easy to install wiring harness for the trailer lights! Thank you save a bunch of money using strainer. A friend recommended me to you and steered me in the right direction for sure. Oh yeah one more thing the videos about the 2 items purchased totally took the dumb out of this install piece of cake! Thank you again!

  • Availability of a Class V Trailer Hitch for a 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500
    The highest rated trailer hitch that is available for your 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 is a Class IV hitch like the part # e98860. This has a gross trailer weight rating of 12,000 lbs and a max tongue weight (TW) rating of 1,200 lbs when used with a weight distribution (WD) system like what you are doing. Even though we don't have a higher rated trailer hitch there are a few things I just want to make sure you are mindful of. The first thing is that when loading a trailer you really want...

This Class IV hitch is designed to bolt up to the frame rails using existing holes and wedge right up against the OEM cross beam that you mentioned. If this OEM beam is what you referred to as the factory hitch then it will not be removed and needs to stay in place.

    The Trailer Hitch Receiver part # E98860 which is a fit for your 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will allow you to retain the full size spare tire. In fact, I took a look through the reviews and most customers stated that it didn't even need to be lowered in order to install the trailer hitch. As you mentioned, the only portion of this hitch that is visible once installed is the receiver tube opening which makes for an extremely clean look. In addition to this, the hitch has...

  • Durable 2" Hitch Receiver Recommendation for a 2016 Chey Silverado 1500
    Thank you for reaching out! I recommend going with the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98860 for your 2016 Chey Silverado 1500 for 2 reasons; it is a Class IV receiver and it has our matte black powder coat on it. The Class IV receiver rating means it's more of a heavy duty option than the standard Class III 2" hitches and then our matte black powder coat has proven to resist the elements and damage from road debris better than the classic glossy black finish you see on every other...

  • Would Trailer Hitch from 2011 Silverado 1500 also Fit 2018 Model
    The 2011 and 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 models were different enough that the hitch fits had to change. So for example, the # e98849 fits the 2011 but not the 2018 and the # e98860 fits the 2018 but not the 2011.

  • Recommended Hitch for 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500
    I think for the most part the 2015 Silverado 1500 had at least a 12,000-lbs towing capacity, so if your hitch is underrated then you could likely just swap out for a hitch like the etrailer Class IV Hitch with 2" Receiver # e98860, which has a 10,000-lbs capacity. You will want to consult your vehicle's owner's manual for the most accurate towing capacity and tongue weight capacity for your truck, but if your hitch isn't maximizing the capacities that you can carry/tow then upgrading the...

  • Recommended Class IV Trailer Hitch for 2018 Chevy Silverado HD New Body Style
    The Trailer Hitch Receiver # E98860 is not a confirmed fit for the 2018 Heavy Duty 2500 or 3500 Silverado. It is only a fit for the Light Duty 1500 models. If you are looking for a Class IV hitch for the Heavy Duty trucks, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class IV - 2" # C14010 which is for an 8 foot bed or # C14009 for a 6-1/2 foot bed. These are very strong hitch options confirmed to fit the new body style.

  • 4-Way Trailer Wiring Harness For 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 Base
    Yes, to power trailer lights with your 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 you will need a 4-way flat trailer connector, and your Sierra should have a round plug under the truck and behind the bumper like you see in the accompanying photo (though it won't be hanging down exactly like that). Assuming you do have that plug, you can use a simple plug-in connector, which is the following part number: - T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118384 And to prevent corrosion on the...
