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.

Very happy so far with the hitch. Delivery was quick and came the day they said it would. Had U-Haul install it for me and it went smooth. Hardly even notice it. Have only used it once to haul electric bikes and didn't hear a sound from below. So far very happy with the hitch.


Comments
Have now had dozens of trips with our electric bikes and the hitch has been perfect. Great product. Solid.

I bought the Draw-Tite for a 2018 Ford Edge Sport. I saw lots of discussion about throwing out the heat shield, which left the rear bumper flimsy. I was able to trim the heat shield, reinstall it, which firmed up the rear bumper cover. Attached are some pics showing how this was done. Basically, trim off the ends and center piece, anything that would extend back towards the hitch. I used a Dremel cut off wheel and Tin snips, worked great. Then, cut a 3 inch square next to the centerpiece opening. Do not cut the heat shield material. This allows the receiver part of the hitch to fit in the opening. Then, trim the ends by following the heat shield material. Slide the heat shield back in place starting from one end and pushing it across and back into place. Reattach all bumper cover bolts, that will firm up the bumper cover.
Pull wires worked great. I used jack stands to hold the hitch in place and installed it myself. Just watch the video a couple of times, it was not that hard. I bought the Curt wiring harness as I wanted to keep the pigtail inside when not using, which will be about 95% of the time. Good product, easy install.


Comments
Its been about a year since I installed the hitch and wiring. It works flawlessly. Paint looks good, couldnt be happier with the purchase.

Mounted perfectly on my 2017 Edge Sport. Is completely hidden. Has no problem hauling my 20ft pontoon. Definitely recommend the anti-rattle bracket for the insert (as shown in my pics).

2021 Ford Edge

Although the product was pretty good, the video showing an actual installation was outstanding. Little things, like how to disconnect the muffler, how far I could let it drop and a stud that needed to be removed. I watched the video and had the hitch installed in about 1 1/2 hours. Whoever came up with the fish wires for getting the bolts in place should get an award.

One thing that I did differently from the video that made sense to me was that instead of putting in all of the bolts with the fish wires initially, I only did the four bottom ones first. When raising the hitch, I only had to be concerned with those four, two on each side. Once they were nutted and finger tightened, I made sure the side holes were lined up and used the fish wires to install the side bolts. Initially, there were fewer moving parts when trying to get the hitch raised and bolted in.

Next will be the wiring but there is a video for that also. Great.

The install went easier than expected. 3 Hours start to finish by myself. There were a few bare edges where paint was removed during shipping, which will be the first to rust. I might try to touch it up but in past experience this doesn't help much. Adding some padding on the edges of the frame might prevent damage during shipment.

To the install. I am a moderately skilled shade-tree mechanic, and anyone who can do minor car repairs should be able to tackle this install. Removing the trim was easy. Using a strap to lower the muffler was not too bad (even detaching the hangers wasn't too bad). I would definitely go this route instead of removing the bumper cover as some others have mentioned... much easier.

The hardest part was getting the hitch frame in place without a helper. I ended up using some landscaping bricks and an old empty car battery to lay one end of the frame on while I attached the other. Having someone to hold one side while you attach the other would make this part MUCH easier. Still, I was able to tackle it without too much trouble. Note the frame IS heavy, so you won't be able to just hold it up while you get the bolts attached.

After that, I tightened the bolts, re-hung the muffler, and put the trim back on and it looks and works great! Now I can go fishing again with my new Edge.

Also of note, the backup camera and the automatic rear hatch sensor still work fine. You do have to "kick" to just one side of the hitch or the other... but it works no differently than before.

Very satisfied with the product, as long as it lasts the life of the car without rusting to pieces... which time will tell on that front.


Comments
We always recommend covering any bare metal with a rust-inhibiting spray paint. If any rust has already started on the bare metal, cleaning it off before applying paint will help the paint apply better and prevent rust from spreading further. I have linked a help article on rust prevention.
-- Etrailer Expert Victoria B - 11/14/2019
A year later, Ive used the trailer all year for hauling without a hitch! Really pleased, have zero complaints. Everything is still nice and snug, even the bare metal spots I was worried about corrosion have hardly gathered any rust. I would recommend this product and will be a customer for life for any future towing needs. Zero problems.

Installed and looks as shown. Needed to modify the plastic covers on the sides because of the long hitch bolts. Also found it easier to drop the exhaust system then remove the rear bumper clip. Plus don't need to get more parts (pop rivets) to reinstall the clip. Definitely need two people to install the hitch.

Thanks again to e-trailer for making my life a little easier with my new trailer hitch. It was once again easy to install and it looks great. The instructions and being able to watch the video makes it easy to install and in no time ready to use. This is the second hitch I have bought and I will definitely recommend this product. Thanks again George. Now I can take my power chair and get more shopping done. The hitch is almost invisible.

I’m just a normal ordinary guy, with normal ordinary skills. And with the excellent instructional video, I was able to successfully install the hitch inside of 1 hour. And…for the last year, the hitch has worked like a absolute and total champ!! When we weren’t pulling uhaul trailers helping our kids move across country, we’ve had our Thule bike rack in the hitch pretty much the rest of the time. It’s been HUGELY function for us, and…. the hitch profile is 99% hidden making it very discreet looking. All of this, together with the reasonable purchase price, makes everything about this hitch experience excellent in every way!




by:
2016 Ford Edge

Good product..

As an FYI from the
installation video, a 5.5mm socket is the same as a 7/32" socket.

As far as how I did my hitch installation:

1) I put anti-seize on the threads of the 8 mounting bolts, just in case I needed to remove the hitch later.

2) When I was reinstalling those plastic covers behind each wheel, I installed a couple thick fender washers on each of the forward mounting studs so that the plastic cover would not be bent or in a bind. With the hitch installed, the rearward stud passes thru the hitch bracket but the forward stud does not.

3) That rearward heat shield/plastic piece is removed and cannot be reused with this hitch. I noticed that in addition to being a heat shield, that plastic piece also functions to help stabilize the rear bumper cover. With it removed, that whole rear portion of the bumper cover moved easily and I became concerned about it moving excessively at highway speeds. To address the issue, I fabricated a couple of brackets from some light-gauge steel flat stock. I installed one bracket to each side of the hitch using the existing holes in the bumper cover. I used 1/4" push-pin fasteners to attach the bracket to the bumper cover, which allows it to have just a little movement, much like it had with the heat shield in place. I attached the other end of the bracket to a stud used for the heat shield directly above the muffler.

2020 Ford Edge

As others have said, the packaging was weak and the hitch arrived broken thru the box with some of the finish chipped and scratched off. Disappointing on a brand new product. Draw-tite's quality is pretty good except for their welding set-up. The draw bar is slightly off center and out of square with the frame, but doesn't look too bad installed. I was able to reinstall the heat shield, which really helped make the rear valance more stable. I worked it in from the driver's side with the hitch hanging loose from the vertical bolts. It took about 15 minutes of pushing, twisting, bending, pulling and working into place with the valance. Not easy, but possible and really made for a good fit in the end. I'm pretty happy with the end result. Curt quality might be a little better, but I chose the Draw-Tite because, according to eTrailer, it mounts slightly higher and the ground clearance is a little better. This one is pretty tight to the bottom of the valance and only measures 8 inches to the bottom of the tube.


Comments
I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you. I recommend touching up the affected areas with a rust resistant paint which you will then have on hand for regular hitch maintenance.

A friend and I installed the Draw-tote Max Frame hitch 3 days after ordering. Amazing service. We installed it on my 2019 Ford Edge SEL and reinstalled the heat shield. All it took was a little trimming on both sides of the heat shield.


Comments
Works perfectly. I couldn’t be happier

I like this hitch. It tucks up underneath nicely. It is installed on a 2015 ford edge sport. Only thing i wish this kit had some sort of replacement brace for the lower valance. You have to remove the muffler heat shield as a result of installation. I feel it would crack over time in the wind. Had to file the hole to fit the rectangular pieces thru when feeding bolts thru frame which i felt was pretty minor. The vehicle specific wire harness is awesome also! Easy to follow instructions too!

Great hitch! As others have said, it slightly blocks the hands-free liftgate sensor, but you can just wave your foot slightly to the right or left of the hitch and it will work.

Great product. Four stars rather than five because I wish they made a version where the receiver is several inches higher. All you would have to do is trim the rear bumper pan a little bit and it would be much higher off the ground (i.e. near factory receiver height). You already have to trim a stud under there to make it fit so who cares about some minor plastic panel trimming?

You will need to reinforce the rear body panel a little bit due to the trim piece that is removed to make room for the hitch. I cut four pieces of plumbing pipe strap. I pulled four of the factory nut clips off of the removed panel and stuck one to each of the plumbing straps. I was then able to run the straps from the factory holes in the bottom of the trim panel diagonally up to the studs above the muffler. The rear trim panel is now way more rigid than it was from the factory.

I screwed a seven-pin electrical receptacle to the side of the hitch. The rear of the receptacle is a bit close to the muffler so I ran the wiring through a spark plug boot insulator and zip-tied it as far away from the muffler as possible. Make sure you run all trailer wiring through split conduit or similar to make sure the wires don't cut from vibration against the vehicle undercarriage! Do not skip the conduit - it is cheap and easy and will protect your wiring.

Overall, installation is easy and the hitch feels really solid. I'm very happy with it.

This hitch is excellent! It arrived in record time (when so many shipments are being delayed) and is very unobtrusive on our Nautilus. Easy installation as well, with all the needed parts included and the on-line videos were very helpful. Some folks worry about the automatic lift gate working, but ours works perfectly--just swing your foot next to the hitch rather than under it.

Excellent, and used regularly for my bike rack.

This is the third hitch of this type that I have purchased from eTrailer and I am very satisfied. I installed the first two myself but left this installation to my local body shop because it was fior my wife's car. It does just what it's designed for. No issues whatsoever. Like the 2 before it I especially like the design that only shows the actual receiver section; you don't see a lot of structure otherwise. It's almost invisible until you need it!




by:
2016 Ford Edge

The installation was relatively easy. Hint for 2015-2016 Ford Edge Sport models, you have to remove the exhaust trim from the rear bumper to help with removing the exhaust system. Took an hour and a half to install this hitch.


Comments
thank you for following up with me. The Draw Tite trailer hitch is great and I have no complaints. I solely use it to attach my bicycle rack and it is perfect. I love it!

Installed my hitch on April 28, 2020 with my son helping me. It is a Drawtite 75234 installed on a 2019 Ford Edge. Installation went exactly Iike your video for a 2018 Edge. Took about 1.5 hours. We used ramps to get under car. We reinstalled the piece we had to remove to install the hitch but it had to be trimmed. Not sure if it is sound deading or aero dynamics. Used the Swagman G10 2 bike rack. Went together easily and is very solid.
I am extremely pleased with etrailer! I would highly recommend both products.


Comments
Both products are great. We have taken them to the Outer Banks in North Carolina and the Jersey Shore. No problems at all and very easy to use.

Great quality receiver. It came well packaged with tons of protection around the receiver itself. The box was beat up as always, but the hitch was totally fine. Pretty easy install with all the magical fish wires. I had my wife get the wires in the right holes while I held the hitch up, and then thanks the to side bolts once those are pulled through it's not going anywhere so no mad scramble to get a nut or two started. Also, with this hitch being hidden it gives a great path to zip tie the wire harness to the passenger side taillight to. Nice product!

A year later and Im super happy with the hitch. The paint has held up well and being hidden its still looking great.

2016 Ford Edge

Overall I am happy with the hitch for my 2016 Ford Edge Titanium. Installation went smoothly. Without the fish wires, install would be nearly impossible. The installation video from Etrailer is such a great resource and ultimately the reason why I ordered from them. One thing the video misses is re-installing the heat shield/air dam that is removed. I put this back on in the following order:

1. Remove heat shield/air dam
2. Install trailer hitch loosely, with nuts just threaded on to end of carriage bolts
3. Do not pull the rear horizontal carriage bolt through the hitch yet. Leave it in the frame tube with the fish wire pulled through. This allows the hitch to rotate down and out of the way enough.
4. Slide the heat shield/air dam back into place and fasten. You may need a second set of hands for this part to pull the bumper up/back.
5. Finish installing hitch

I gave this product 4 stars because of the exposed steel when I unpackaged the hitch in a number of locations. I hope this does not cause rust in the future. If I had to do this whole thing over again, I would but the Curt hitch.

  • Will Installing a Trailer Hitch on a 2016 Ford Edge Cause Hands-Free Liftgate to Open Randomly
    The dealer is wrong. The way the rear sensors work on the 2016 Ford Edge is a little more complicated then just a sensor underneath. In fact there are sensors both underneath pointed down and some in the rear bumper that point straight back. To trip the sensors to open the rear hatch both of these sensors have to sense your foot and leg moving in front of them at the same time. The presence of a trailer hitch therefore would not open the rear hatch on the vehicle. Now with that said it...

You will also need to lower the exhaust on both sides to install this hitch. I've included a link to our installation of this hitch on a 2019 Lincoln Nautilus for you to check out.

  • Does Draw Tite Hitch 75234 Allow Hands Free Liftgate to Work on 2020 Ford Edge
    Yes, the Draw Tite hitch part # 75234 does allow the hands-free liftgate of your 2020 Ford Edge Sport to still function. You'll just have to kick to either side of the hitch opening.

    The stud in question on the 2016 Ford Edge interferes with trailer hitch # 75234 so it has to be removed in order for the hitch to fit properly. You won't necessarily have to use a die grinder. It is possible that bolt cutters, rotary tool with cutting wheel, files, or other tools could work just as well. You also might be able to borrow the appropriate tool from an auto parts store that has a tool loan program. If you choose to have the hitch installed any trusted mechanic or RV dealer...
