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. The technicians at etrailer perform hitch installations on a daily basis, making them a valuable resource for do-it-yourselfers. The one-on-one, personal service you'll receive comes straight from an expert in the towing and automotive field. We've installed it, we've wired it and we've towed with it, so whatever your question, we can answer it.

2019 Volkswagen Golf

The bar came a little scratched up, but since it was hidden behind the fascia it wasn't too big of a deal. The bar fits after some rough dry fitting. Good solid build, and great for the price.




by:

Great hitch receiver, works as expected, fit/finish/install were all perfect.




by:

bought this so I could put a Thule hitch rack on the back. It is solid and holds the rack perfectly! And you would never notice it on the car if I took the bike rack off




by:

Works alright. Bolted up just fine.

  • Trailer Hitch Appearance on a 2017 Volkswagen Golf R
    I do have a picture showing trailer hitch # 24975 installed on a 2017 Volkswagen Golf R and I have included it. This picture comes from the instructions which I have also linked for you. If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier then you have to make sure the accessory is rated for use with a Class I trailer hitch. Also, with a bike rack, you are limited to 2 bikes maximum on a Class I hitch. I have linked the Class I compatible 2-bike racks and...

  • Why are Cable Ties Needed for a Trailer Hitch on a 2018 Volkswagen Golf
    The Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24975 which is a fit for your 2018 Volkswagen Golf is going to use two of the bolt holes that the passengers side blind spot sensor was previously using. Since these holes cannot be used to reinstall the passengers blind spot sensor because of the hitch, there are cables ties provided that will allow you to secure the blind spot sensor without using all three factory mounting holes. The blind spot sensors do not come bolted to the hitch...

  • Best Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Volkswagen Golf
    The best hitch for your 2018 Volkswagen Golf is the Draw Tite part # 24975 because it doesn't require a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack like the Curt requires and because it has a concealed crosstube which allows it to be mostly out of plainsight.

  • Is Trimming Required to Install Hitch on 2018 Volkswagen Golf R
    There is some fascia trimming required to install Draw-Tite hitch # 24975 on your 2018 Volkswagen Golf R. Take a look at the diagram I attached. It's right from the install details and shows how much trimming is needed. There needs to be a 2-1/2 inch by 3-1/2 inch notch cut for the receiver tube to drop down from behind the bumper. The diagram is showing the fascia under the bumper as if you're underneath the car looking up. Notice the exhaust tips on each side so you can see the orientation. I've...

  • What Hitch do you Recommend for my 2020 VW Golf R Model
    The Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24975 is a confirmed fit for your Golf R and will give you an 1 1/4" receiver tube opening. This can be used with many different hitch mounted accessories as it is a very common size among hitches. This will have a 200 lb. tongue weight rating and a 2000 lb. gross trailer weight rating but of course don't exceed what VW recommends in the owners manual. If you plan on hauling a small trailer or a lighted cargo carrier I recommend the...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2020 VW Golf GTI
    For your 2020 VW Golf GTI, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class I hitch, # 24979. This hitch is a confirmed fit for the GTI model, and is a concealed design which hides the hitch crossbar behind the rear bumper for a much better appearance that what you'd have with a fully exposed hitch.. The # 24975 you'd looked at is a fit for R models, and wouldn't be compatible with your GTI. I've linked you to an installation video for the hitch I recommended.

  • What 2015 Volkswagen Golf Will Draw-Tite 24975 Fit
    I wasn't able to find anything about a "Trip SE" model (which I think you meant something else but it was autocorrected), so what I can say is that the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24975 will fit a 2015 Volkswagen Golf R model. If you don't have the R model then you want the hitch # 24925 instead. Installation instructions have been linked for you to check out. If you have a different model just let me know and I can help you figure out what hitch will fit.

  • EcoHitch or Draw Tite Hitch for 2019 Volkswagen Golf R Model
    The EchoHitch part # 306-X7333 and the Draw Tite part # 24975 that you mentioned for your 2019 Volkswagen Golf R model are both great options but for the better price and shorter install time I'd recommend the Draw Tite since both of them give you the same hidden style of 1-1/4 inch hitch.

  • Best Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2019 Volkswagen Golf R
    The best overall trailer hitch receiver for your 2019 Volkswagen Golf R is the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7332 because this is the only hitch for this vehicle which has a 2 inch receiver, which is important because it give you a much wider range of accessories such as bike racks and cargo carriers to choose from. For example, as of this writing there are currently five times as many cargo carriers that fit a 2" hitch than a 1-1/4" hitch and three times as many bike racks...

  • EcoHitch vs Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch for 2018 VW Golf R Model
    While both the Draw-Tite # 24975 and EcoHitch # 306-X7333 that fit your 2018 VW Golf R model are quality hitches with a 1-1/4" receiver, 200 lb tongue weight capacity and 2,000 lb towing capacity there is really just one major difference. That is that the EcoHitch is made of recycled materials and combines steel, stainless steel and aluminum while the Draw-Tite is simply made of steel.

  • Comparing EcoHitch and Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch for 2016 VW Golf R
    The biggest difference between the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch # 306-X7332 that fits your 2016 VW Golf R and the the Draw-Tite # 24975 is that the EcoHitch has a 2" receiver which allows it to use many more accessories than the 1-1/4" receiver on the Draw-Tite; due to that I highly recommend the EcoHitch # 306-X7332 for your '16 VW Golf R. In terms of Class rating, the EcoHitch does not technically have one while the Draw-Tite is a Class I, and apart from that and the receiver size another...

When we haven't physically installed this here in our shop, I do usually tend to trust the manufacturer instructions, but it's always possible that the instructions may be different on this year and model. I spoke with my contact at Draw-Tite and he seemed to think that the instructions were accurate for installation...

  • EcoHitch vs Draw-Tite Hidden Trailer Hitch Comparison for 2016 VW Golf
    Both the EcoHitch and Draw-Tite trailer hitches fit your 2016 Volkswagen Golf and both feature similar specs. Both the Draw-Tite # 24975 and the EcoHitch # 306-X7333 feature a design that conceals the crossbar beneath the rear fascia. The EcoHitch is slightly more concealed due to the receiver being attached more closely to the crossbar than it is on the Draw-Tite hitch. They are otherwise nearly identical in terms of fit, function, and installation. I recommend the DrawTite hitch as it...

  • Hitch for 2018 Volkswagen Golf SE TSI
    I was able to confirm with my tech contact at Curt that their Class I hitch # C11412 will fit your 2018 Golf SE TSI hatchback. This hitch includes all required hardware. I linked the written instructions and an install video. If you intend to use this hitch with a bike rack or cargo carrier a support strap # 18050 is recommended. Curt requires this item or a similar one to support the load on the hitch and to maintain the limited lifetime warranty.

  • Can I use Dutton Lainson Winch Outdoors and Light Duty Winch Recommendation For Outdoor Use
    I contacted Dutton-Lainson and the StrongArm electric winch part # DL24975 can be used outside. With that being said, it plugs into a standard AC wall plug and is not waterproof. You need an AC wall outlet to plug it into and it is not safe to use in marine environments or in the rain. If you need a light duty 12V Utility Winch for outdoor use, I recommend Bulldog Winch part # BDW15008. It can pull up to 2,000 lbs and has 50 feet of wire rope. The Bulldog Winch has a sealed gearbox and...

  • Do Trailer Hitch Receivers for the 2016 Volkswagen Golf R Require Trimming
    We have trailer hitch receivers to fit your 2016 Volkswagen Golf R but he Curt you asked about, part # C11475, isn't designed for your car. It's for the 2017 model. We have two hitches from EcoHitch and one from Draw-Tite that fit your 2016. From EcoHitch one is a 2 inch, part # 306-X7332, and the other is a 1-1/4 inch, part # 306-X7333. I recommend the 2 inch because it's compatible with more accessories than the smaller hitch is. Both of them do require trimming to the fascia. The...

  • Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch vs. EcoHitch Trailer Hitch for 2019 VW Golf R
    There are three trailer hitches which fit your 2019 VW Golf R model, the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 24975, EcoHitch Trailer Hitch # 306-X7333 (1-1/4" receiver) and # 306-X7332 (2" receiver), but I recommend the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7332 because of two important differences, which are its 2" receiver and the fact it gives you the best ground clearance. The 2" receiver is important because this gives you a much wider range of options when it comes to the accessories...

  • Difference Between The Draw-Tite and the EcoHitch Hitches for a 2019 Volkswagen Golf R
    The main difference between the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24975 and EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7332 is the receiver tube size. The EcoHitch has a 2" receiver tube instead of 1 1/4" on the Draw-Tite. 2" receivers have the widest variety of accessories, that's why I would highly recommend the EcoHitch. Both hitches are going to have the same weight ratings, 2,000 Lbs GTW. The EcoHitch has a higher tongue weight capacity of 300 Lbs (the Draw-Tite is...

  • What is the Difference Between the EcoHitch and Draw-Tite Hitches for 2019 VW Golf "R Model
    The primary difference between the EcoHitch # 306-X7332, EcoHitch # 306-X7333 and the Draw-Tite # 24975 is that the Draw-Tite # 24975 and EcoHitch # 306-X7333 only have 1-1/4" receivers, where the EcoHitch has a 2" receiver. When available, I generally find it more beneficial for customers to go with a 2" hitch when they are available for their vehicle and within their price range. Both of these hitches mount behind the bumper and provide a concealed cross tube design that will leave only...

  • How Much Does Rear Bumper Fascia Need to Be Notched to Install Hitch on 2019 Volkswagen Golf R
    To install the EcoHitch # 306-X7333 or # 306-X7332 on a 2019 VW Golf R, a notch measuring 3 x 3-1/4 inches would need to be made in the underside of the bumper fascia. For the Draw-Tite # 24975, the notch would be a bit smaller at 3-1/2 inches by 2-1/2 inches, also on the underside of the fascia. For all three hitches, the notch isn't noticeable from the rear, only if you're looking up at the underside of the bumper. If I had to personally choose between the 3, I'd go with the EcoHitch...

    The best hitch for your 2019 Volkswagen Golf R is the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7332 because it is the only hitch currently with a 2" receiver tube. The big benefit to having a 2" receiver is the wide variety of accessories, like bike racks and cargo carriers. Ecohitch also makes a hitch with 1 1/4" reciever tube # 306-X7333 The Draw-tite # 24975 is a class I, so it has a 1 1/4" receiver tube opening.

Since the cutouts are relatively the same I highly recommend going with the EcoHitch # 306-X7332 because it gives you a 2" receiver over the 1-1/4" receiver size for the other 2 hitches. The larger receiver size means that you can use more accessories for your 2018 Volkswagen Golf R model. Just be sure not to exceed the weight capacity of your Volkswagen. If...
