Rugged, Matte Black Finish

The sturdy steel construction is protected with a matte black finish for added durability. This unique powder coating gives etrailer hitches a carbide-like appearance and a rugged look that sets them apart from traditional glossy hitches. In addition to being rust and corrosion resistant, the tough matte coating hides dirt, scuffs, and dings better than a glossy finish.

This fully welded trailer hitch receiver bolts onto your vehicle's frame with no welding required. Matte black, powder coated steel is durable and corrosion resistant and creates a rugged look.


I have a 2014 HYUNDAI SANTA FE GLS which has dual exhaust and technically wasn't covered in the installation video or vehicle fit list. I didnt realize this till I began to install it and once I did I figured what the heck let me try. Ill say this is does fit and bolted right on once I got it in place. The only issue I ran across was the hitch hitting the driver side exhaust cover mounted on the bumper, but all I had to do was remove 2 10mm bolts to get it loose, slide the hitch in place and insert one bolt to hold it and once everything was torqued I went back got the 2 10mm bolts to thread back in. All in all its a solid hitch that one person can install if your willing to get a little dirty. I recommend it for the build quality, ease of installation, and great pricing.

This hitch is not showing that it is a confirmed fit for the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS, it is only a fit for the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. This could be the cause of the exhaust cover being in the way.
-- Etrailer Expert Katrina B - 05/19/2022


It was delivered to us super fast. And it fit perfectly. And looks great. I highly recommend etrailer.

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

It definitely fits a Hyundai Santa Fe sport 2.0T ultimate I put it on myself with the help of my dad holding it! Works great with my bike rack


Videos provided by etrailer were amazing. I didn't have to remove all the exhaust clips, just the first few back and it provided enough wiggle to slide the hitch receiver in place. I was very impressed with how easy and straight forward the install was and the price was unmatched. If they just provided auto combusting boxes. lol. The worst part of the experience was trying to throw the box away!


e trailer has nailed it as always. Shipped quickly, fit my vehicle perfectly, installation instruction video is spot-on and super helpful. I installed this by myself in about 2 hours start to finish and I’m super happy with how it turned out. Can’t speak to the longevity of the product yet but the initial experience has been great.


I received my hitch and harness kit and prepped my vehicle for installation. I placed the hitch assembly in place only to find out that it was not fitting. Putting it back on the bench I discovered that one of the legs was twisted and warped. The shipping box was undamaged and the paint on the unit did not reveal any distress from being dropped, besides the gauge steel that it was built from it would not be like this from dropping. I am assuming that during welding, the fabricator was not paying attention to the quality of his work. I can heat and straighten the unit but I then risk compromising the strength of it and decided to call etrailer tomorrow to have another one shipped overnight hopefully since I am very limited in time to assemble.


It is an etrailer product, so not much more to say. Hitch is very well built and heavy duty. The finishing looks great in the vehicle, and the round tube is a perfect fit.

Installation took 1hr:20min, and that is because I did not have one of the tools required to get the bumper pin out of the way, so had to improvise.

etrailer video was paramount for me to complete the installation. I recommend you watch the video prior to installing yours.

I am ready to tow and take our bikes for a ride. Thank you etrailer, for putting money back in my pocket!


It didn't fit my car I have to cut a lot of parts to make it fit, my car is Hyundai Santa Fe 2020 and it doesn't fit unless you cat a lost of parts and when you finish installing the exhaust stay to low, but it take me to much work to put it on and then to remove it and send it back it wasn't easy to so I quipped but no so happy .


Holes weren't a 100% match-up for inserting driver side bolts. Still installed fine, but needed some encouragement. Very simple packaging: mine arrived with the end brackets poking through the cardboard with scratches on the paint in random spots. Overall satisfied for the price.


Product is very well built, and was reasonably priced. Like it, fit like a glove. Sturdy, and durable. The people at etrailer is very knowledgeable and helpful. Is like customer service should be. Like this guys.


I gave this 4 stars and not 5 for only 1 reason, the custom fabrication was just a hair off when trying to install. It took a second person to help pull it into position so we could tighten the bolts. Other than that the price, the fast delivery, ordering process and just the actual hitch are all worth 5 stars. They even gave me a 20 dollar refund on my hitch after purchase because 2 weeks later the price dropped and they returned the difference with no hassle at all. Great company great products!

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe

This hitch fit just right into my 2015 Santa Fe Sport. I have had no issues with this product and no signs of rust.

2016 Hyundai Santa Fe

I received my hitch in only a few days which was great. The video was a good guide, everything lined up and bolted right on. I would recommend this hitch and etrailer to anyone.


Went on smooth as silk. Plenty of videos for installing on my SUV and done from start to finish in less than 50 minutes.

My trailer hitch was relatively easy to install - all the bolts fit my car as described and it took less than an hour to complete the job. Id recommend it.
Hank - 08/21/2022


Thank you for the custom trailer hitch receiver that I purchased from your company. If I didn’t know better I’d believe you secretly came and measured my Kia, and if I had not had to let down my spare tire to install the two bolts on the drivers side, it would have been perfect.


Hitch came fast and packaged well. Watched a YouTube video and instalation was easy. Highly recommend.


So glad I decided to buy this trailer hitch and install it myself! Saved a ton and couldn't believe how well the design made it so easy to install. The product and installation were exactly as it states on the website.

Hyundai Santa Fe

The fit was perfect for my Santa Fe. No drilling or force fitting. Directions were short, clear, and to the point. 2 sets of hands are better than one, you'll be done in about 40mins.

Great fit. Easy install.
Andy - 04/14/2022


As expected from past experiences this hitch fit perfect and the install video was the perfect assist! This installed in less time than the video implied and the fit was perfect.

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

Perfect fit and instructions. The installation went well other than I had to tap 2 holes in the frame of my 2017 Santa Fe due to rust. I recommend this hitch.


Fantastic! Shipment arrived extremely fast and now I will have it for my trip! Thanks Lynn @ Etrailer!


Full size spare does not fit regardless of what customer service claims

You mentioned that a full-size spare does not fit with the hitch. I checked into this and it can be tricky in order to get it back into position once the hitch is installed. You may need to angle the tire in and out, and use a bit of force to get it back into position. If you go to about the 8:20 mark of the linked installation video, you can see how one of our installers got the spare tire back on in a Santa Fe after a hitch install.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 10/17/2022

2014 Hyundai Santa Fe

Very well made and attractively priced, no need to pay more for the name brand. Like the matte finish. Excellent communication and tracking. This is my second e trailer hitch. Good stuff!


Easy fit after two bolts are trimmed off. Installed without lifting car. Release last two exhaust support. Enough space to pass unit and catch one bolt. Raise opposite side and bolt up. Replace plastic panels on both sides with new push pins.

2016 Hyundai Santa Fe

It was perfect. Took a long morning to get it installed on my car, but it's perfect and the setup wasn't too bad (hyundai 2016 sport awd). Had to get a little dirty with the spare tire, wheel well mud flaps, and the exhaust, but then it was smooth sailing. 10/10 recommend

  • How to Reduce Suspension Sag When 2017 Hyundai Sante Fe AWD is Towing a Trailer
    I wish we had suspension enhancement that fit your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe, but at this time we don't have anything that fits. I do have a really great option though that's actually better for trailer towing than suspension enhancement. Instead I would recommend you get a weight distribution system. WD systems are better than suspension enhancement for towing situations as it helps level the tow vehicle by redistributing some of the tongue weight of the trailer up to the front axle. This...

  • Why Does Trailer Hitch for 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Have Higher Capacities than Vehicle
    This is a really good question, but basically the hitch is overbuilt for the vehicle it fits. The main thing to keep in mind is that any towing setup is only as strong as it's weakest component. So if your hitch has a higher capacity than the vehicle (or vice versa) you are always limited by the whatever the lowest rated component is as that's what would fail first. The reason the hitch has higher towing capacities is because the hitch was designed to fit your vehicle and to be as strong...

    The shipping weight of the Trailer Hitch Receiver # E98841 is 34-lbs for standard ground shipment within the USA. Since you will be using a freight forwarding service to accept the hitch and send it on to you at your overseas location I recommend that when you call etrailer Customer Service to place and pay for the order that you also ask them to provide extra packaging for protection during the long shipping process. This may add a couple of pounds to the shipping weight but...

This is a custom fit hitch, so there is no drilling into the frame required for installation. If you're going to be towing, you'll also need a wiring harness, ball mount and hitch ball to complete your towing setup. For the wiring I recommend using the Tekonsha T-One # 118784 because the Tekonsha powered converters are extremely reliable, and...
