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. Technical Support

At 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.

Very happy with the fit and function. Install was very straightforward


Must have had a bit tighter fit on my truck than shown in the installation video—couldn’t keep the spacers lined up or jockey them back in place while trying to keep everything steady doing it by myself. I pulled it back out and spot welded the spacers to the hitch but still had trouble with the wires binding up on one side. It ended up being easier feeding the wires through from inside the frame out after the holes were already lined up—wished I had done it that way first for the front-frame bolts. Otherwise, great video. Thanks.

Worked out fine—handled the 1100 pound tongue weight of trailer to push it into a tight fit angle into the garage that would otherwise be impossible backing to my blind side. The new truck’s 174” wheel base would have made it even more difficult.

Shows up with nuts and bolts sitting on the ground and was told tracking number is not applicable for a damage claim. How do I know it’s all there for install until I get started?

I will have Customer Service reach out to regarding the damage and possible missing parts.

2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty

I installed this on the front of a 2018 F350. Fit an finish is great. Install was easy and directions simple to follow. Having another set of hands was very helpful, else it would be a balancing act I imagine. No drilling needed except for the cutout in the valence. My use is a cargo basket for four bikes and a kayak rack when pulling my fifth wheel. I have a receiver splitter that allows me to have both the basket and Yak rack mounted at the same time. Load up the toys and go...

Please keep in mind that the hitch has a 500 lb vertical load limit, which means that the hitch receiver tube can safely withstand a total of 500 lbs. This means that the combined weight of everything bearing down on that receiver, the bikes, the cargo tray, the splitter, the upright load bar and half the weight of the kayaks cannot exceed 500 lbs. Youll also want to make sure the splitter youre using has sufficient capacity for what youre asking it to do.

2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty

When the rear hitch is not available - use the front! This was perfect. Thanks!


Service and shipment was excellent and very much appreciated. Install was less than two hours in the driveway. Other videos were right about directions making the hole to large but other than that fairly simple install. Looking forward to putting it to use!

Its Great being able to use the front hitch for the tilt-n-go and freeing up my back hitch. Good value for money!
GPIC2323 - 12/07/2021


This was the best thing for my truck. It handles my electric bike rack and bikes with flying colors.

Still the best addition to my truck as I can mount any option to the front of my truck as needed. Winch, bike rack or fishing rack.
Paul E - 08/29/2022


Front mount trailer hitch is solid. Watched the video a couple times helps the install.Gotta say though first time ordering with etrailer and shipping took a long time with usps. Ordered on 3/8 AM. and finally arrived 3/19. Couldn’t get tracking info other than usps texting going to next Facility where ever that was. box was damaged and hitch had scrapes where it punched through the box. I think it was Russias fault.

When it comes to shipping hitches, it is very common for them to arrive with scratches. We recommend using a rust-oleum type paint to cover the scratchesspots. This will prevent any corrosion in the future. I have a link attached for your reference. I have also sent this over to customer service for them to reach out to you.

2017 Ford F-450 Super Duty

I mounted this on my F450 the day I received it. Although some of the details from your instructional install video varied for my vehicle, the advice to remove the bumper was spot-on. I thought it might be a lot of trouble to do so, but it was simple, and it allowed me easy access. I did not even have to use the wires to fish the bolts through. This receiver will be used for a big bed extender (goal post) in conjunction with a single roof rail to haul our kayaks while towing our 5th wheel. We’ve used this setup on our previous truck, an F250, for 4 years and can’t stand the thought of leaving the kayaks at home. Next up, figuring out the rail for the roof.

2021 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Seems to finally fit ok. Was not even close to the 30-60 mins advertised. I am an auto and aviation mechanic and very adept around tools, yet this took an honest 3 hours to install. I do have the 6.7 with the cooler, so I had to take off the front bumper and bend the tabs as the directions state. Not a horrible job, but did take some time. Btw, easier to take off all 4 bolts on each side and remove the outer rear bumper brackets.
Would be nice to have a better diagram of where to cut the hole for the hitch. Seemed like I did what the directions said, yet it was off center a tad and I had to widen the passenger side so it looks even. Again, not terrible, but how hard would it be for them to have a couple exact measurements for us?
The spring fish lines were not needed if you remove the bumper.

My original problem was I had ordered the Curt unit which shows for my rig. It will not fit around the cooler. I called CS and they told me a tech will call me back soon to see if they might have a “work around.” This was at 2 pm. No call the rest of the day. I called back 2 days later to ask for help. This CS agent said she will expedite a call from tech to me. Nothing for a week.
I ended up returning the Curt, and ordering the Draw Tight, since the agent did say that one shows will work. Disappointed that no tech called me back to help. Would have been so much easier to make the Curt work vs repairing the shipping box, print out labels, and go find a UPS drop.

I purchased the Thule goal posts also as my plan is to carry 2 kayaks in the front of my fifth wheel. Fyi, the height max is about 6” below the plane of my rack on this truck (2021 F350 6.7 dually Fx4). The measurements on the site are accurate, but I didn’t think to check since this one was the tallest offered, and a Ford truck should be fairly common.(?)

In summary: do not use the Curt for a 2019-2022 F350 with the 6.7 and/or dually with the extra cooler.

2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Hitch worked great for backing in equipment in our shed.
The only negative was the hitch had some of the paint rubbed off of it where it broke a hole though the box it was shipped in. Installation instructions could be improved a little. My truck had the skid plates on each frame rail so i did not need the spacers in the kit. But i had to loosen both skid plates up to get enough wiggle room to install the hitch and it would be great if they would add that step to the instructions. The hitch went right in after loosening them. I really like this hitch and would for sure buy again.

Hitch still works great!

E-trailer gave me great advice the hitch fits perfectly and is incredibly useful on the front of the truck

2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty

The Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch Receiver was a perfect fit on my 2019 F-350. The instructions and the installation video made installation straight forward. It is possible to install in your driveway - just have a couple of 5 gallon buckets handy to support the receiver while you line everything up and move it into place. Also note that if your Ford has bash plates installed on the frame where the receiver is mounted you will NOT need to install the spacers provided with the receiver.


Pretty much a strait bolt up job. Trickiest part was cutting the plastic shroud so the hitch could be mounted just below the bumper. I use this hitch when I need exacting placement of trailers and to load extra gear on a hitch hauler on the front of my truck... I love the extra space.


I installed it myself. The parts fit perfectly. I love it.
I would enhance the instructions a bit. I read them more than once to understand the principle. But once I got it no big issues.
They have done an excellent job with this hitch

Superb. I could not park my trailer without the front hitch

2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty

As my normal experience with etrailer, shipping was fast and communication was great. Even an email to customer service I sent on Sunday morning, expecting an answer from someone Monday, was actually answered later that day. As with previous hitches I have ordered from etrailer the hardware was securely taped to the hitch itself - a good idea considering the boxes almost always show some damage from the delivery process. The hitch appears well made and fit as it should. The installation video on the etrailer website was very helpful (note the presenter calls it a Curt hitch, but the Draw-tite part number is displayed.) I did find it easier to wait until after the hitch was held in place with the lower fasteners before I ran the fish wires for the other two on each side. This was installed on a 2020 F250 and the skid plates (aka compatibility brackets, "Prius catchers") were left in place. Spacers were included to allow for brackets not being present.

2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty

As with most of my products from, the hitch arrived as promised. I unpacked the box, read the instructions, watched the video and went to work. I must admit, the video was far more helpful than the Curt instructions. However, as another customer mentioned, I did not need the spacers on my 2020 F350. Otherwise, the installation went as I expected (NOTE: the Curt instructions suggest 30 minutes for a qualified installer to complete the task - it took me quite a bit longer).


Awesome hitch. I can put my 35 foot trailer, ANYWHERE, with ease.

2021 Ford F-350 Super Duty

The best part about this is the installation video on the etrailer website. Note that the spacers are only needed on one side (instead of on both sides) for a proper fit on the 2021 F-350 Tremor. Also, there's no need to cut the air dam on the Tremor since this version of the F-350 has a shorter air dam. The hitch fits underneath the air dam perfectly with no cutting required, so you can skip that step!

Ford F-250 Super Duty

Hitch works very well. Good quality, easy to install, fit my Ford F250 perfect. I


Hitch itself is fine. Instructions were not accurate. I had to remove both 4x4 brackets on the frame rail for it to fit between the rails. There was approx 1/16" play, so I inserted a washer so it would be snug. Wasted alot of time and energy trying to follow the instruction. Mfg error. Have photos but unless you're mounting it on your 2021 Superduty 4x4, they wouldn't make sense.

2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Great fit on 2019 ford f350. On installation I removed the lower air dam to locate the cut lines for the hole location. This allowed me to accurately measure down from the bumper for horizontal cuts and locate the vertical cut lines measuring off the center bolt hole in the dam. My hole was cut size on size to the receiver leaving no excessive gaps and a very clean installation.


Great Product straightforward install.


Use it for front fish rack. Works fantastic. Plan is to use with front winch assembly as well.


I ordered this for a '22 F350 even though Draw-Tite still hadn't confirmed the fit (as of 11/21). Based on similar products fitting both a '21 and '22 it seemed to make sense and yes, it does fit. A little rough installing it alone on the ground with skid plates, but certainly doable. The Draw-Tite version sits a little higher than others for better ground clearance making this the better choice. As always, etrailer's service was great!
