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.

Great hitch! Installs exactly as described. Very clean look as it doesn’t stick out at all and is hidden well under the bumper. We use it for bike racks and cargo baskets and it’s been great. Be careful of going up steep driveways as it can drag. Can’t do much about that with such a low sitting vehicle. Would definitely recommend.

2018 Honda Odyssey

It was a smooth installation. etrailer video is super helpful. Just followed the video, that's all you need. Thanks etrailer.

2018 Honda Odyssey

Installed the product 1 year after acquiring it on my 2018 Odyssey- It was a snap, no need to put the car on a lift and only removed the last muffler hangar. A second hand is helpful when installing and re-hanging the bumper. Otherwise its a one person Job. Fits great- very sleek hidden hitch. Wiring kit also installed just fine for the 4 flat. Instructional videos was super helpful and paper instructions were nearly adequate in themselves after watching video.



Super Hitch on the Odyssey - towing fishing boat perfectly all last summer.

2020 Honda Odyssey

After reading all of the reviews I had a high level of confidence that installing this hitch on my 2020 Honda Odyssey would be easy. Install time took about an hour and a half, and was indeed incredibly easy thanks to the video. I used a bungee cord to hold up the exhaust and a utility knife with a new blade to cut all of the plastic including the notch for the hitch. Since there is so much room underneath the car, I used my jack stands to hold the hitch up while putting the first screws in, no second pair of hands needed. It looks fantastic and doing it myself instead of paying the dealership felt great. You really do get what you pay for!

Zero issues a year later. 1,000 recommend.

Honda Odyssey

Had a friend come over and it took less than an hour. Most of that time was spent removing and reinstalling all the clips and screws for the bumper cover and rear wheel splash guards. Video made it seem easy. Definitely glad I decided to go with this model hitch as it looks like a factory install. When I purchased the 2020 Odyssey in December I had the dealership give me quote and they wanted right at $1200 to do what etrailer allowed me to for $xx.xx. Thanks for saving me the $1000 and having the satisfaction of doing it with my buddy and the expert help from etrailer.



As Tony the Tiger says, “Grrreat! Still very satisfied with the hitch and wiring harness.


Easy to install and great instructions from

Unfortunately, the receiver tube is welded on crooked when compared to the hitch itself, resulting in bike racks and luggage racks being tilted when compared to the van and the ground. I’d expect more quality from a company like Draw-Tite.

As you can see in etrailer’s pictures, the receiver tube is set inward from the back edge of the bumper, this may make using this hitch more difficult for some users as it is a bit more difficult to hook up safety chains and the hitch pin.


The idea of putting the hitch on was far more daunting than it actually was. The only difficulty was cleaning the attach points of rust to make sure that the bolts threaded correctly.

2018 Honda Odyssey

Great looking trailer. I bought this one because the bars weren't extending off the side of the hitch.

Installation is straightforward and the video is great. Lessons learned:
1) I didn't need to take off the forward gasket for the exhaust pipe; I only took off the rear one; photo attached showing how my ratchet fit between tail pipe and bolt.
2) the HARDEST PART of the installation procedure was REATTACHING THE SPLASH GUARDS/MUD GUARDS. I found that it helps to understand what clips and grommets are there.

3) I used a file to de-burr the edges after cutting with my Dremel. I like to avoid sharp knives whenever possible.

My hitch came with some paint missing in some parts so I spray painted the surfaces black and gave it a couple hours before handling.

It wasn't clear to me from the video why you need a new cable for the Hands Free Tailgate Assist. The manual that comes with the cable makes it very clear: you will not be able to kick under the hitch anymore to open the trunk/hatch. Pic of manual attached.

Lastly, maybe stretch before installing this. I was sore for a couple days afterwards and took some Advil.

2020 Honda Odyssey

Nice trailer hitch for the 2020 Honda Odyssey. That said build quality could be better, there were some minor defects on the bumper, there were some super sharp edges that cut me. I had to file it down and paint it.

Installation wasn't too bad, the hardest part was unhitching the exhaust so that you get more room to work with. Installation videos on website made the install a breeze.

Note for the plastic retaining clips you need to remove under the bumper, you only need to remove 7 of them (don't remove all of them, as there are there to actually keep the handsfree tailgate antenna inside the bumper)


Haven't used it yet, but the fit is great.
Install took about 1.5 hours taking my time and did it all on the ground. I drove the van up on a couple of 2x6's for a little more room underneath. The installation video is dead on, I only took the rearmost exhaust hangar off though.
Overall very pleased and can't wait to put our cargo carrier on and put it to use.
Also great service from etrailer like always.


The detailed videos made the installation easy. I’m super pleased with my purchases. Looks great.

2018 Honda Odyssey

Before I order this hitch, I ordered the Honda hands free power tail gate adapter from online Honda dealer and the part number is# 08L91-THR-100A. The adapter included the shipping is about $90. For the hitch, I ordered by phone with Kim and she was very nice to help me to place the order. The hitch arrived on time and fast shipping. Luckily, I received the hitch and the adapter on the same day. When I opened the hitch box. I didn't find the screws or instruction. It ends up all were inside of the hitch opening hole, well and compact packed.

I installed this hitch by myself. I was using two boxes to hold the hitch when I install. I didn't use the floor jack and stand. Because I am a small body build guy. So I can sneak under the van to work on it.

Overall, it took me about 3 hours. Maybe it was my first time to install this hitch by myself. During the installation, there are few things wanted to share:
1) the hard part was separating the exhaust mounting rubber brackets. Before I separate the brackets, I used a long rubber twist tie to tie the pipe to the frame then separate the rubber brackets.
2) because I don't have the Torx screwdriver to remove the new hand free tail gate adapter box. So I used a small pointed plier to remove the Trox screw. After putting the new box back, I put the regular screw back instead of the Trox screw. So I can make sure I screwed it tight.
3) just after took out the bumper, there are two electric sensor wires on both sides (I have a Touring model), it was hard to detach the wire connectors. Because I cannnot see the clips. So I detached the whole connection union and off from the car frame and easily to detach the wire connectors.

Other than these things, I followed the installation video and it was very smooth.

I attached a photo what tools I used and some installation photos. Hope you all had a smooth installation.

Thank to the etrailer sales, Kim and the installation video.

2018 Honda Odyssey

The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver did not disappoint at all. First thing, the shipping on this was extremely fast. Not sure if that was because of where I live or not, but it got delivered in great condition and was very quick to get here.
Second, the installation seemed daunting at first but after watching the video for the 2018 Honda Odyssey, the installation was smooth as butter. Hardest part for me was removing the clips on the bumper so that I could reuse them again. They were very dirty and didn't want to budge very easily. Other than the clips, everything else for the installation was super easy. I do recommend trying to clean out the welded nuts like they mention in the video though, I had two of mine that were a little rough to get the bolt to screw in without the help of a ratchet, so clean those out beforehand and you'll be good.
Third, The look of this receiver once it's all said and done looks great. It's not quite the same as the factory hitch, but it's nice and sleek but still functional. We immediately threw in our Velocirax bike rack to try it out and it worked like awesome. I would definitely recommend this hitch to any other Odyssey owner.

2020 Honda Odyssey

Great hitch is barely visible looks much better than typical bar below the bumper style hitches. Much easier to instal than I expected took me a little over an hour with 3 video conferences breaks along the way, if I had free time it would have been less than 45 min. Granted I watched the install video a few times before i started. I was shocked at the price on etrailer but they price matched it to a competitor plus a bit. Arrived in 2 business days. This is the third hitch Ive purchased from etrailer and i wont even shop anywhere else they are the Zappos of hitches.


Easy install. Great look compared to most other alternatives that also provides more clearance.



Ive had this and been using it for a year. I still think its the best looking hitch receiver frame with the best ground clearance. It wasnt too difficult of an install, though some technical tasks required, and still looks great.

@Jd We're glad your # 76170 Draw-Tite hitch is working well for you!

2019 Honda Odyssey

Installed myself on a 2019 Honda Odyssey - took about 2.5 hrs. I'm relatively handy with tools and working on cars (you will have to remove your bumper and measure & cut a slot in the bottom center of it for the hitch receiver to poke through). However, once installed, its almost not noticeable, and my wife appreciates the hidden aspect of it. We use it primarily for bike rack, but there are cargo racks, pods, steps to access roof racks, and obviously trailers could be attached to it. Very handy.


This hitch is great aesthetically! The only issue I had with it was it was a very tight clearance to the bumper beam, and somehow when driving over some slightly bumpy roads it sounded like it was contacting…. Had to take off the bumper and add thick felt foam between the hitch and this aluminum bumper to prevent the noise from occurring. Other than that I like it alot

2019 Honda Odyssey

The auto body portion was simple to remove the bumper skin. The instructions recommended lowering the exhaust, I was able to avoid that and actually found it helpful to slide the assembly over the tail pipe to support one side while I started the left side bolts. Torquing the right side bolts was the crux of skipping dropping the exhaust. To dodge that bullet I simply wedged a block of wood between the body and exhaust to make enough clearance for the ratchet head and socket. Overall I'm very happy with the build and fit. It's a much cleaner look than a huge hanging bar. The only thing that broke my heart was cutting a index card size notch in the bumper skin.



Its been awesome, looks great. Hauled trailer twice from Texas to CA worked out perfectly. Im very impressed with the product and how it offers more ground clearance than a below bumper unit.

2022 Honda Odyssey

The hitch is built well. The only reason that I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the powder coating was already flaking off in a few spots. The install isn't really that difficult. The only tip I guess I would say is make sure you measure well before you cut.

I will have customer service reach out to you about the paint flaking. I do recommend to cover those spots in a rust-oleum type of paint to prevent rust in the future. I have attached a helpful article for your reference.


Great product, easy to install, and great customer service. buy this model over the others.



One year later, product looks terrific. No erosion, no paint wear, no weakness. Quality product that looks amazing and is simply to install.


Hitch came on time and well packaged to protect it from scratches / damage. After watching etrailer’s video, I set aside a few hours to take my time to install. Everything went as planned. Was able to install without jacking up the van. I did use a floor jack and two car stands to position the hitch under the van so I could thread the first couple bolts. A little nervous to cut the bumper but use of my dremel with cutting disk worked great. Overall very happy with the finished look.

2019 Honda Odyssey

Excellent hitch, excellent installation instructions. They Hitch that we purchased was not the exact model that was installed in the video, so the steps were not exactly the same but the video detailed the correct mounting holes. We had to cut a 6x6 notch out of the bottom of the bumper to get the hitch to sit flush without bending the plastic; very simple, not visible.

2018 Honda Odyssey

Very impressed with the look of this trailer hitch on my 2018 Honda oddesy elite.
Followed the instructional video, and it went without a hitch.

Anyway, if you are looking for a great hitch that does not have the big bulky bar showing, this is the one to go for.


etrailer did an excellent job for processing and shipping it fast. Installation video is superb. I only have few knowledge of car installation and I am able to install it properly. The step by step video helps a lot. I highly recommended to buy at etrailer and I will not hesitate to buy here again.


We’ll built, straightforward installation instructions. Unfortunately it was slightly inadequately packaged, so there were some chips in the powder coat. All told, I’m still satisfied.



One year in, still happy! Just pulled a partially disassembled Gorilla Everest Elite playset on a 5x12 utility trailer 500 miles last week with zero issues.
