Comparing Draw-Tite and etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2022 Honda Odyssey


I want to add a hitch to my 2022 Honda Odyssey and I was looking at the etrailer hitch and the drawtite hitch. Which one do you think is better?


Expert Reply:

The Draw-Tite # 76171 and etrailer # e98855 trailer hitch receivers are both very similar. These are both Class III hitches with a 2" receiver. Both have a visible cross tube and can be used with weight distribution. Although the Draw-Tite has a higher maximum gross trailer weight, the 2022 Honda Odyssey has a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs so there is nothing to gain from this.

I would personally choose the etrailer # e98855 over the Draw-Tite. The main reason is the unique matte black powder coat finish. Not only is this finish corrosion resistant, it also does a better job of hiding dirt and dings when compared to a glossy finish.

If you plan on doing some towing, I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118781. This wiring harness plugs into existing wiring to provide you with a 4-way connection to power your trailer's signal lights.

For a ball mount, I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900. This comes with a 1-7/8" and 2" ball along with 2 different ball mounts for different rise/drop options. It also includes a ball mount bag that you can store everything in.

I have attached some review and installation videos for your reference.
