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.

I used the cross tube to build my own custom hitch behind a hitch. This is a quality product and worked well for my custom build. Closest to my RV, in the main receiver, I carry my motorcycle. I used this to mount a bike rack behind the motorcycle carrier. For custom builds like this, the cross tube is a perfect product to build around. I mounted this to my support rails using grade 8 bolts, this way I can break it down easily and store it at camp or at home. The cross tube is quality steel and has good welds. Class V was more than I needed, but this was the best option for my project.



by:

Bought this hitch for a custom application. WAY OVERKILL for what I needed but better to over engineer it than under. This baby is capable of towing 16000 lbs with a tongue weight of 1600 lbs. I will never tow more than the 5000 lbs my coach is rated for but I needed it to extend out and be a bit lower than the standard hitch to carry my KLR 650 on a rack which comes in at about 525 lbs.



by:

This worked perfectly for my school bus.



by:

awesome quality and quick delivery during the holiday season nonetheless!



by:

I cut and installed this hitch on my 2002 E450 with bolts and welded as well. Very pleased with it.



by:

Company was great with helping me find the right hitch for our church bus. We have been very pleased with the quality of the hitch! We pull a 12' loaded trailer to south Texas each year and the hitch performs great. Thanks for all your help!

Hitch is still working well! We have had no problems with it and the quality has been great!



by:

Etrailer's part of this purchase was great. Shipped quickly and well packaged. The problem was with the manufacturer ... Draw-Tite. The hitch is great except for one thing ... the stickers look like a drunk slapped them on. It may sound trivial ... but I have spent countless hours building a custom expedition vehicle I am proud of. I now have to remove them because they look like crap.

Your expedition vehicle sounds awesome! There is one sticker on the hitch that lists the towing and tongue weight capacities. If possible, I recommend leaving that sticker attached for safety reasons.



by:

Excellent product.



by:

Extremely strong and heavy duty hitch



by:

The product was in stock, delivered in a timely manner, and exactly as advertised. E-Trailer even upgraded the delivery at no extra charge. The hitch has a Made in Mexico sticker. The welds look good; much better than welds on most Chinese import goods. Very pleased.



by:

This weld-on receiver was the perfect choice for adding a receiver to our tandem dump truck. I couldn't be happier!



by:

Product is great, shipping was as expected with a winter storm impacting it. Product arrived hanging outside the box with one end filled with mud from being dropped by the delivery man. Typical for the shippers in this area but the packaging for this heavy of an item could have been better. This is the reason for 4 and not 5 stars. Product deserves 5 stars, shipping probably 2.



by:

Great product. But even better Sevice from etrailer as usual. Always a great buying experience.



by:

Very good product easy installation and prompt shipping. I highly recommend.

Exactly what I wanted, heavy duty

  • Possible Trailer Hitch Solution for 2004 Chevy Box Truck
    I spoke to my contacts at Curt and Reese and the only styles of hitches that can be made to fit a box-truck body like yours are multi-fit RV hitches like the # 41990 that has a 16k capacity. This is a weld on hitch that would require either the 7 inch drop brackets part # 4907 or the 16 inch brackets part # 4916.

  • Recommended Hitch With 10k or 15k Capacity for 2000 Monaco Diplomat
    The Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Service Body Trailer Hitch # 41990 you looked at is exactly what I would recommend for your 2000 Monaco Diplomat. There are no bolt-on options for this capacity that will fit your motorhome so a universal weld-on hitch is what you need. This has a max gross trailer weight of 16,000 lbs and a 2" receiver. You will also need the 7" weld-on brackets # 4907 or the 16" # 4916. We recommend taking the hitch to a certified welder for installation.

  • Trailer Hitch Fit Recommendation for School Bus Frame
    Your best option is going to be a multi-fit hitch like the Reese # 41990 with the drop brackets part # 4907 for a 7 inch drop or # 4916 for a 16 inch drop. This hitch setup was designed specifically for applications like yours where there isn't a custom fit option and you need something very universal.

  • Dimension of Draw-Tite Hitch Service Body Hitch 41990
    We have measured this before and found that the Draw-Tite # 41990 is roughly 7-1/2" from the back of the crosstube to the front of the receiver. To install this hitch you are going to need the 7" Bracket Kit # 4907 or the 16" Bracket Kit # 4916.

  • What Class IV Hitch Is Recommended For 1995 F350 Flatbed With 4 Inch Channel ICC Rear Bumper
    You will need to measure the distance between your frame rails and how far below the frame you will need the hitch to sit. The Draw-Tite Specialty Class IV Trailer Hitch, # 41990, is a 44 inch long hitch with a 3 inch square tube. It measures 7-1/2 inches from the back of the hitch to the front of the receiver. It is a weld-on installation. If you need to lower the hitch I have the Draw-Tite 7 Inch Weld-on Bracket Kit, # 4907, which will allow the hitch to sit 7 inches below the frame...

  • Trailer Hitch Solution to Possibly Fit GMC Bluebird School Bus Chassis
    For a higher capacity multi-fit solution your best option would be a hitch designed for service body trucks like the # 41990 that has a 16k capacity. This is a weld on hitch that would require either the 7 inch drop brackets part # 4907 or the 16 inch brackets part # 4916. Your bus frame would need to be less than 44 inches in width.

  • How Does the Draw Tite Hitch 41990 Install
    I checked your order notes and it looks like your ordered the part # 41990. You should note that this isn't intended as a front mount hitch and to install it you would normally want the part numbers # 4907 for 7 inch brackets or part # 4916 for 16 inch brackets. However, I did attach a link to the install instructions for this hitch for you to check out. I also attached a diagram from the instructions that shows how it would install using the brackets.

This is a weld on hitch that would require either the 7 inch drop brackets part # 4907 or the 16 inch brackets part # 4916. The 7 inch drop bracket should work very well for you since you said you wanted a drop of 6 to 8 inches below frame.

  • Hitch for a 2002 Thomas School Bus SafeTLiner HDX With Rear Engine
    There is a way for you to add a trailer hitch to your 2002 Thomas Saf-T-Liner bus. Although there are none mounted vertically onto the frame, they will use brackets to mount to the frame which can be bolted or welded on. What you need is the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Service Body Trailer Hitch Cross Tube # 41990 so long as your bus has a frame which is up to 44" wide, because that is the length of this cross-tube. You will then use either the 7" Bracket Kit or 16" Bracket Kit. To determine...

    For a 2004 Ford E-350 Cab and Chassis the Draw-Tite # 41906 is a custom fit, but you will need to make sure that the bolt holes are 38-5/8 inches from frame to frame in order for it to fit your particular model. While this hitch is a custom fit for the E-350 cab and chassis, it's possible that your box truck body may not have that hole spacing on the frame so you will want to confirm this. I've linked an installation video that can be used as a rough guide, since we don't have any videos...

  • Why Is The Frame Service Body Trailer Hitch Cross Tube # 41990 Not Rated For Weight Distribution?
    Since the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Service Body Trailer Hitch Cross Tube # 41990 is a universal part and not vehicle specific it is impossible to rate the amount of torsional force the tube would be capable of supporting without mounts. And as this is generally used on vehicles with much stronger rear suspension components than passenger vehicles they do not generally call for a weight distribution hitch to reduce rear sag.
