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.

Excuse the dark picture but I installed the hitch by myself as soon as I got home when I saw that it had been delivered. Hitch receiver is very well made and high quality. Everything aligned perfectly and it looks awesome installed. The only thing visible is the receiver tube. Absolutely cannot beat this hitch for the price. Thank you etrailer!

Its been a year and everything that I said previously still stands. I use my hitch every weekend and it has held up to everything.
Kenny V - 05/06/2022


The product arrived on time and fit my car perfectly. The installation video was also very helpful. I have also attached a bike rack to it without any issues. I will say I had one slight problem that I read in some of the other reviews. I had to trim the plastic underbody cover on the drivers side near the exhaust. It is the only way it will fit with the hitch attached.


Installed on 2018 Rogue. Easy install. Works well for my intended purposes. I use it for storage and transportation racks. It is a little off center, but I don't use it for towing.

2012 Nissan Rogue

I was able to install this myself, the bolt holes matched up perfectly. The only difficulty was cleaning out and rethreading the bolt holes because they had 10 years of rust and dirt in them, but that is not eTrailer's fault!

2015 Ford Transit Connect

Delivery of hitch was amazingly quick..much sooner than I could have imagined. But the container box was demolished during shipping. Thankfully somebody in shipping had the brilliant idea of using strapping tape to hold accessory parts onto the metal hitch or they would have fell out of the holes in box and lost in transit.
It may be after Xmas before installation happens & I intend to report any difficulties involved but the hitch appears to be high quality & well built out of hefty metal..I was very impressed in how sturdy & strong it appears. (This is NOT a flimsy imitation piece of junk). Thanks for a super web site and pleasant purchase experience.

Install was fast & easy, even though I had nobody helping. Had to trim underbody splash panel which took as much time as hitch. Was impressed w how nice & snug it looked installed not obvious seeing it unless looking for it. My daughter has same model Rogue so it was an easy decision to purchase a second one for hers.
Don - 12/11/2022


Installed by myself in 30 minutes! Easy set up and perfect fit for my 2016 Nissan Rogue!!

2017 Nissan Rogue

Great hitch fits our Nissan Rogue perfectly and instructions are great. I use a floor jack to help hold up the hitch to get bolts started. Do clean the bolt holes as instructed and assure you can hand thread each hole prior to installing.


First one they sent didn’t fit but got a replacement one within 2 days of calling them and fit great. Thanks for selling a good products.


It's great. I put it on my wife's car so we can put a bike rack on her car for the Ebikes.

Very happy!

It’s still working great for me. I use it for a bicycle rack only.

2017 Nissan Rogue

Amazing how well it fits. Doesn't take 30 minutes to install. 3 bolts out 5 bolts in and done.

After a year its as good as day 1
Tracy - 08/01/2022


Easy to follow installation video. Good quality product. Unfortunately I was the victim of a rear end accident shortly after installing the hitch receiver and never used it.


Hitch working great. Pull my trailer and teardrop camper with it. Was easy to install. If you need a hitch check out these guys

Works great with both of my trailers

Nissan Rogue

The etrailer hitch is a great looking, sturdy hitch that is simple to install. I backed up our Rogue onto oil change ramps to give myself a little more room to work, but even that is not entirely necessary. The only problem was a defective factory weld nut on the passenger side (not the hitch's fault) that made it a bear to remove one of the bolts for the factory tow plate and install the new bolt for the hitch. But with some effort and a long enough ratchet, we can now carry our bikes.

A couple installation tips:
- You'll need a 5" or longer socket extension to reach the bolts, especially on the passenger side.
- You don't have to lower the exhaust.
- Despite what the instructions say, you CAN replace the appearance panels. (Not required, but I hate having extra parts when I'm done.) The passenger-side panel is easy to reinstall.
- The driver's side appearance panel needs to have a rectangle cut out of it to fit around the hitch, 3 3/8" wide starting 3" up from the bottom of the flat part, with a small triangular notch in the corner. (See photo.) You can cut the plastic with a sturdy pair of kitchen shears. You'll need to work it a little bit to get around the exhaust pipe, but then just clip it back into place.

2019 Nissan Rogue

Receiver was easy to install. About an hour. I did not have fancy lift to hold receiver, so my son in-law held it up as I started bolts. Looks nice installed.

2013 Nissan Rogue

No issue with installation. The bolt holes all lined up properly. Quality seems to be good. My only complaint is that some coating was scratched off on the face of the receiver tube that is visible from behind the vehicle. I used some black paint to touch it up so at least the color blends. I plan to leave a cover on when not in use anyway, so I still give it 5 stars for price and function. I had to use a pretty big rise to get the trailer level, and the receiver is so long that the safety chains are too short. I will need to add extensions to the chains.

2017 Nissan Rogue

etrailer customer service rocks. Ordered hitch and wiring as a Christmas present for employee who rides bikes and wanted a bike rack. They even have a great selection of name brand bike racks! :)


Nice hitch!! Fairly easy to install. It took more time replacing the plastic panels that it did to install the hitch. I'm 75, and with a little help from my wife, helping me to hold it in place, it was easy.

Was relatively easy to install on our 2019 rogue. However, we have not used it yet. But its there if we need it! ??
Allan - 10/13/2022

2015 Nissan Rogue

Thanks to etrailer for the helpful installation video. The whole process took me about an hour to install.


The hitch was put on by a place that does hitch installations frequently. My only concern was that my bike rack still wiggles in the hitch. I bought a u-shaped stabilizer that helps a little bit. I just freak out when I see my bike wiggling in the rear view mirror as I drive down the highway.


The hitches are not made correctly. It did not line up with the holes on my car by quite a bit. Be prepared to have to bend these to line up. Between my brother and I we have used 3 of these hitches and none of them were lined up. They claim it’s due to shipping but it’s a manufacturer error.

2015 Nissan Rogue

Could not be happier. The video showing how to install were perfect. In less that 45 minutes, the job was complete. The receiver was a perfect fit. Also, the shipping response was great. I had the boxes in my garage in less than a week. Will definitely be buying from again.


2018 Nissan Rogue (not the Sport model). Perfect fit. Hidden well. Will order again from etrailer for my next car.

I use a longer ball mount to ensure trailer clears the bumper. For the electrical I purchased the Nissan wiring harness and cut the end off instead of going through the floor of the car (not a good idea in my opinion). Instead I used the connector portion that came from etrailer and hang it out the hatch when needed (also avoids the weather wear).

Perfect. Ive used it several times pulling a 5x8 trailer. Still 5 stars!
Ed - 03/24/2021

2012 Nissan Rogue

The trailer hitch receiver for my 2012 Rogue was easy to install. We did not need to drop the muffler. The holes lined up perfectly. The only problem we had was removing the rust from the exposed weld nuts to attach the hardware on the driver's side.
Fast Delivery- received it before expected

Thank you for your review. Here are some helpful tips for cleaning weld nuts:
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 07/20/2021


All holes did not line up on the frame/ hitch. One hole was off by half the diameter of the bolt. This should not be this way , they should all live up perfectly

You mentioned that the bolt holes did not line up on the frame. It sounds like that the side brackets were knocked out of alignment which is why the bolt holes are not lining up. This can happen while in transit to our facility or to you. We do have a great FAQ that provides ways to move the brackets back into alignment so the hitch can be installed.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 10/20/2022


I received the Class III trailer hitch for a 2017 Nissan Rogue from etrailer quickly and with no problems. The hitch was well packaged and included instructions and the mounting hardware. I found the written instructions to be a bit confusing, but a search of the internet revealed a video on the etrailer website showing the installation on the same vehicle. The video was clear and concise and made my installation easy. I highly recommend for their prices, service and support.

  • Tongue Weight Capacity of Trailer Hitch Receiver on a 2017 Nissan Rogue
    The trailer hitch receiver, part # E98846, does not require a support strap for its warranty. The hitch itself is rated and can handle up to 525 pounds of tongue weight but you also need to make sure your vehicle can. I looked up an owner's manual for the 2017 Nissan Rogue, which the # E98846 does fit, and it lists the vehicle's maximum tongue weight at 110 pounds. You're always limited by your lowest rated component, which is usually the vehicle itself, so adding a higher...

The rear hatch sensor on your Rogue will still work with the hitch installed.

    The hands free liftgate sensor for your 2019 Nissan Rogue will still be operational with the installation of an aftermarket trailer hitch. However, you will need to place your foot on either side of the receiver tube opening in order to activate it. This is the case for most vehicles that have the hands free liftgate sensor.

  • Which Weight Capacity do I Need to Follow When Installing a Hitch on My 2017 Nissan Rogue
    If you are planning on installing a hitch that has 525 pounds of maximum tongue weight like the etrailer Hitch Receiver # e98846 on your 2017 Nissan Rogue, you still need to adhere to the lower 110 weight rating of your vehicle. You will need to have you tongue weight under 110 pounds.

  • Will the Trailer Hitch for a 2018 Nissan Rogue Work With Hands Free Liftgate
    The trailer hitch I recommend for a 2018 Nissan Rogue is the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98846. It features a bolt-on fit with no drilling required. It also has a hidden design so only the receiver tube will be shown. In regards to the hands free liftgate feature, this will still be operable you'd just need to place you foot on either either of the hitch. It obviously won't work if you were to place your foot directly under the hitch tube but aside from that no issues.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Nissan Rogue with Backup Camera and Handsfree Liftgate
    The hitch part # E98846 is the hitch I recommend for your 2018 Nissan Rogue that has the handsfree lift gate sensors and back up camera. While Nissan recommends a special harness to allow the sensors to still work after a hitch install we've found that it's not needed and you can just kick to either side of the hitch and it work fine. Also, the camera would not be affected either. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

In fact there is an entire section dedicated to trailer towing, in which it lists a 1,100 pound maximum trailer weight, so the manufacturer is clearly okay with towing as long as you stay within the vehicle's limits.

    The hitch fits are different between the Sport model 2019 Nissan Rogues and the non-Sport models.

This has a concealed crosstube which allows it to be less visible and also helps with ground clearance. I attached an install video and a picture of what the hitch looks like installed as well.
