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.

Works great, look great on my BMW X5 I had a body shop install it because it is complicated on a BMW no lights just for bike rack well worth it.




by:

The trailer hitch came with chipped paint which I needed to fix myself. I called customer service and they suggested I fix it with some spray paint and offered my a nominal $ credit for the paint. I went this route and made the repairs myself. I ended up spending a lot of my time which is worth much more than that. I also had an appointment scheduled to attach the hitch to my vehicle and needed to rush the repair before that. In the end the trailer hitch has lasted through the winter and extensive use. The product is good, but perhaps the shipping company was at fault, but ultimately the vendor could have offered more to compensate me for my inconvenience.

The team at etrailer is extremely knowledgeable and responsive! I’m glad too see great customer service still exists along with providing product information! Thanks!

BMW X5

Got for my 2021 x5 (G05). My installer was able to install without any issues. It does block the kick to open tailgate feature, but that’s what I expected from a fixed hitch.




by:

Trailer hitch hangs down 3 to 4 inches lower than the factory BMW hitch. Receiver portion of the hitch also points down slightly: it should be level to the ground or point up slightly. I installed a bicycle carrier rack in the hitch: the hitch was so low it caused the bicycle tires to drag the ground occasionally. Hitch needs to be re-designed

2020 BMW X5

Outstanding service. I needed a trailer hitch for a brand new 2020 BMW X5 - cannot get it installed thru BMW (only if I ordered the car with trailer hitch - which I didn't). Researched on etrailer.com and found the exact part with instructions. The hitch was delivered on-time - speedy as well. Took it down to the auto shop and they installed without issue - looks just like factory. Extremely happy with etrailer.com. Thanks guys and gals!




by:

Great customer service on the phone helping me decide the correct hitch for my car. 2 day delivery. Thanks !!




by:

Perfect hook for trailer. Would purchase again - came quickly too!!




by:

Received the hitch today, installed it today. Why only 4 stars? The printed documentation wasn't complete as compared to the PDF available on line and the photos printed in b/w were too small and almost useless. Other than that, everything fit once I figured out how it was supposed to fit and the hitch is quality so I'm happy.




by:

This was the only hitch that fit my car, yet you stocked it. Web info prior to purchase was complete and accurate. Ordering was simple. Pricing was extremely fair and delivery was amazingly prompt. There was even follow up to ensure that the product had been delivered and was in good shape as promised. Excellent experience! Would definitely do business with this company again!




by:

Have not installed yet. Initial thoughts are that design, welds and machining are spot on. I did have several large portions of powder coating that flaked off completely to bare metal. This was largely due to packing and shipping.




by:

Great Product - Installation was very e asy.

    I attached a picture of the Draw-Tite # 76288 on an X5. It's from the install details so it isn't the best picture in the world but you can see the hitch. It actually has a ball mount inserted into it. We haven't had the chance to install one here so we don't have a better picture of a video yet.

    The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receive part # 76288 which is a fit for a 2019 BMW X5 (Non M-Sport) will sit directly below the rear bumper. I don't have any measurements or photos yet as we have not yet had a chance to install this but it should be almost resting on the rear bumper fascia.

    As you can see in the linked install instructions, the Draw-Tite # 76288 would require trimming the underside of the bumper fascia. I've provided a photo showing the detail of exactly how the fascia is trimmed, as well as a photo showing what the hitch looks like when it's installed. As you can see, the portion of the fascia that's trimmed is on the underside of the fascia, so it won't be easy to see from the rear of the vehicle.

  • Does Adding a Weight Distribution System Increase a Hitch's Gross Tongue Weight Capacity
    A weight distribution system does not increase a hitch's tongue weight capacity. Rather, it takes weight off of the tongue, helping loads stay stable and level. In other words, if you use a trailer without a weight distribution system with a tongue weight that is just under the hitch's gross tongue weight capacity, it can cause the rear of your vehicle to sag. The weight distribution system evens things out by re-distributing weight across all the axles of the towing setup. I've linked...
