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. We've installed it, we've wired it and we've towed with it, so whatever your question, we can answer it.

Installation went exactly as the video described. Of course I had the benefit of my brother’s knowledge, tools and expertise, as I could not have done the installation myself.
Very pleased with the final result. The hitch looks as if it was a factory installation.

Gerald - 05/16/2021


Had this hitch installed on my 2018 Audi Q5 last week. Already used it a few times to carry my bikes and it's perfect! Can't comment on the longevity , but this certainly seems like a high-quality hitch, and I am excited at all the flexibility it allows me. The attached photo doesn't show the hitch, but my bike rack is attached to it, demonstrating its ability. Thanks etrailer!

Awesome! Works perfectly.
Josh - 06/25/2020


Fit perfectly, High quality.
The installation
video was very helpful, but two things:
1) unclipping the side wheel trim pieces needs a bit more info. The clips were very difficult to unclip.
2) The video mentioned having to cut out some plastic on the bumper. This was not necessary. No cutting needed.


Great product. Great instructions.
take a good hour with reviewing the instructions online video.
No need to cut the rear bumper, hitch slides on and fits through no problem.


Overall found the trailer hitch to be exactly as advertised. I’m fairly handy around the house, but always a bit hesitant to do much on cars. But with the step by step video, I found this to be no problem. Just followed along, paused the video, and did it step by step. Took exactly 3 hours, which is what they estimated in video. Very happy with this purchase.


The order arrived quickly. There was a video for my car and my trailer hitch which I followed to the letter. The level of difficulty was pretty high, and I have installed 4 other etrailers on my cars before. It took me about 2 hours to complete the install on my Audio Q5 without any issues. Anytime I buy a car, I add a trailer hitch from etrailer because they make it so easy.

Audi SQ5

Happy with product. Good quality at great price. Need to take apart the whole bumper for SQ5. A bit tricky but doable with great video with all steps (that makes a difference).

2018 Audi Q5

This is the second Draw-Tight trailer hitch I have purchased from Supper fast shipping and the communication from the etrailer team is excellent. The Draw-tight hutch was easy to install and looks great on our 2018 Q5. I didn’t have to cut any plastic parts to complete the installation because the bumper plastic will fit around the hitch.


Purchased hitch for 2018 Audi Q5. Local body shop installed using directions provided and online customer suggestions. Installer was very impressed with quality and ease of installation. "Great product and value."

Len S - 08/24/2020


Installation went just as expected. This is a rather simple installation and looks like a factory hitch. You only need to cut the notch into the bumper cover if you have a long ball mount that will reach back into the receiver.

The product is very very well built and solid. I am completely satisfied with the this product and the service provided by!

2022 Audi Q5

The install was not too difficult and the directions were spot-on. I did not have to cut anything in the rear bumper area as the hitch fit perfectly within the fascia opening that was already there (2022 Q5).

2021 Audi SQ5

Installed on a 2022 Audi SQ5. It probably took me 2 hours total. Make sure that you have a 10mm deep socket to remove the four nuts on the bumper. The removal of those nuts is kind of the crux of the whole process. Otherwise, it's pretty easy. No need to trim the bumper cover.


it is what I expected. Quality of unit is good. works well for the intended use. installation was as expected. much greater value than the Audi unit

2018 Audi Q5

Great product. Very easy to install by just following the video. The only problem I had was with the trim because the measurements is off center if you follow the instructions but it still works and it isn’t noticeable unless you bend. 2018 Audi Q5. Second time I’ve ordered from here and perfect every time. Quick shipping also.

Great product. Has done what I brought it for.
Pops - 05/19/2020

2018 Audi Q5

I truly appreciated's fit confirmation, installation video, and expert phone support. They gave me the knowledge I needed to work with a good local mechanic after hearing pricey estimates and liability concerns from the dealer and several body shops. [Installed on 2018 Audi Q5]

2018 Audi Q5

I am very happy with my purchase from especially since I did not have to cut out a notch in my bumper to fit the tow hitch. It just slipped into the open gap. The only other thing I would change about the instructions. The 10 mm socket needs to be an extended 10 mm socket.


Appears to be great quality for the price and fit perfectly/custom. Installation video was key to an easy installation process and without it would have been difficult to figure out.

2019 Audi SQ5

Shipped very promptly, received within 2 days. A bit disappointed for the box, as the hitch receiver had broken throhgh the cardboard but disn't show any big damage other than cosmetic. Installed was relatively simple if you watch the video first. Took me about 3 hours to install and return vehicle to driving conditions, but I did have my 2 little ones constantly interrupt me, so I am pretty sure that easily 1:30-2:00 tips is cery reasonable. I did not have to trim the bottom of the bumper as it fit without any issues. It looks stock which is someting I was looking for.


Not the easiest installation but the hitch fits perfectly. Solid product. Would purchase again for sure.


Great fit on my 2018 Audi SQ5.
quality hitch. Video instruction makes it easy.
Be careful trimming the small piece of plastic under the rear bumper. The tabs are not equally spaced so if you measure between two centre tabs it isn’t actually in the centre of the bumper and the small cut out will be off centre.


The product was a perfect fit on my 2019 Audi SQ5. The installation video was spot on and very helpful. Nice job guys!

Towed a heavy 6x12 trailer across the country and the tow hitch and wiring kit performed really well
Don - 07/07/2021

Audi SQ5

Great product for my 2021 Audi SQ5. Decided to have it installed by U-Haul but the install video was still very helpful.


2018 AUDI SQ5; DRAW-TITE 76183

am very pleased with the DRAW-TITE 76183. The fit is excellent. It is tight up to the car and sits in the exact same spot as the $900! Factory unit. I installed it in 2 hours. Be very careful with the snaps for the wheel well trim. Release them from the INSIDE from underneath with a flat head driver, there are two at the bottom on both sides. Its tricky but it the ONLY way to insure not damaging the snaps. Instructions don't call for this. They are not the replaceable kind, they are part of the trim.
DO NOT CUT/trim your FACIA! Its not necessary. Or at least test fit the facia before cutting. Im glad i did a test fit before trimming. I did not need to trim mine and have plenty of room in that area.

Going strong. Gets used every weekend.
Dean - 08/28/2018

2018 Audi Q5

The product itself is good. Appears to be good quality. The instructions are very lacking however. I would recommend creating a more detailed set of instructions with many pictures and make them available online. The install time noted it should take a couple hours. It ended up taking about 4 hours and that did not include wiring the harness.

Above, we have a video linked showing this hitch being installed on a 2018 Audi Q5. The video should fill in any details missed in the instructions.

Works great and looks like a factory in stall

  • Confirmation of Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver on a 2018 Audi SQ5
    An aftermarket trailer hitch receiver, like the Draw-Tite # 76183 that is confirmed to fit the 2018 Audi SQ5, are often not designed to install or match a factory hitch receiver. In fact, sometimes when two different manufacturers offer an aftermarket hitch receiver for a specific vehicle, their designs can be completely different from one another.

  • Will Hands Free Liftgate of 2018 Audi Q5 Still Open with Draw Tite Hitch # 76183 Installed
    You may have to kick to either side of the hitch opening, but yes you could still operate the hands-free liftgate of your 2018 Audi Q5 with the Draw Tite hitch part # 76183 installed. Due to how tightly this fits into the fascia opening for a hitch I'd be shocked if you even noticed a difference.

  • Trimming Required for Hitch 76183 Installation on Audi 2018 SQ5
    You can install Draw-Tite hitch # 76183 on your 2018 Audi SQ5 with only minor trimming of the rear fascia. If you refer to the linked photo taken from the included instructions you'll see the small 2 x 3-1/2-inch notch to be made. Just take care that you avoid cutting the wiring behind it. I also include a link to a video for a Q5 installation which will be very similar overall.

  • Will The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Fit The 2020 Audi Q5 Without Affecting Liftgate Sensor
    Good news Ann! When you install a trailer hitch on the 2020 Audi Q5 the middle sensor of the lift gate feature may be blocked by the hitch. However, you will be able to kick either side of the hitch to activate the other sensors. I recommend to use the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76183 on the 2020 Audi Q5 which is a concealed cross tube hitch so the only part of the hitch that is visible once installed is the receiver for a nice clean looking install.

  • Is Trimming Needed With Draw-Tite Hitch For Audi 2020 SQ5?
    Our installation video states that some trimming may be required on your 2020 Audi SQ5 but the installer was able to replace the fascia without trimming it. So to answer your question I would say no you do not need to trim the fascia when installing the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76183. While installing if you feel you will need to trim the fascia to meet your standards, you will need to trim using a rotary tool or some snips. Then trace the section of fascia that is...

  • Maximum Tongue Weight Capacity of a 2018 Audi Q5
    According to the owner's manual for a 2018 Audi Q5, the maximum tongue weight capacity for the vehicle is 440 lbs. The factory trailer hitch is more than likely rated higher than this but that is a rather moot point as the vehicle is lower and will be your limiting factor. I do not have any information on the factory trailer hitch for a Q5 but there should be a sticker on the unit which lists both the gross trailer weight (GTW) rating and the tongue weight (TW) rating.

  • Does Draw Tite Hitch for 2019 Audi Q5 Replacing Bumper Beam Affect Safety
    Having a trailer hitch like the Draw Tite # 76183 replace the rear bumper beam of a vehicle like your 2019 Audi Q5 is actually a really common method. Essentially the hitch beam is the same thing as the bumper beam but with a hitch opening attached to it instead.

  • Do All Hitches for 2020 Audi Q5 Require Removing Rear Bumper
    Due to the way your 2020 Audi Q5 is set up there isn't a way to install a trailer hitch like the # 76183 without removing the bumper. This sounds more invasive and difficult than it really is though. As long as you have basic hand tools and mechanical skills you'd have no problem. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

    The hitches we offer for your 2018 Audi Q5 like my recommendation the Draw Tite part # 76183 have been test fit on the 2018 models and determined to be a confirmed fit by Draw Tite. There may have been some changes between the 2017 and 2018 models but not enough to change the hitch fit. We had the chance to fit the Curt part # C13331 on a 2018 Q5 and we found that it fit and worked well. See install video below. So we have first hand confirmation the hitch fits as well.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Audi Q5 with Hands-Free Liftgate
    The hands-free liftgate of your 2018 Audi Q5 can still be used with the Draw Tite Hitch part # 76183 installed. Draw Tite has tested this feature and found that it still worked but you may have to move your foot just to the side of the hitch opening. I prefer the Draw Tite over the Curt equivalent part # C13331 as the Draw Tite does not require the use of a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack.

The sensors will only be limited where the center receiver is located. No lasting modifications to the vehicle are needed.
