Draw-Tite Towing and Hitches

Draw-Tite originated right after WWII when inventor Bill Whichello developed a tensioner for clotheslines, called the Draw-Tite. Unfortunately, this was just as clothes dryers came on the market. So, he changed to trailer hitches under the already-copyrighted Draw-Tite name. Since then, Draw-Tite has come to represent the epitome of craftsmanship in the industry, and are generally regarded as the easiest to install products in the market.

    Reese and Draw-Tite were the pioneers in rating trailers, hitches and towing equipment by weight class, eventually making these classes part of the DOT regulations for towing equipment, ensuring interchangeability in equipment between the vehicle, trailer, RV and hitch manufacturers. It’s now a simple task to specify the weight rating of every component of the vehicle/trailer assembly, guaranteeing improved safety and towing ease.

    Choose a Draw-Tite hitch that fits your vehicle and is rated to tow a trailer that’s of the correct max weight for it as well as pick the right Draw-Tite ball mount and ball. It’s often necessary to spec a ball mount with rise or drop, to make the trailer ride in a level attitude behind a truck with a much higher receiver opening, or a car with a much lower one. With three different ball sizes with different shank sizes, and five different weight classes, it’s not one-size-fits-all. And a poor choice in setting up a trailer can result in a dangerous, evil-handling setup.

    One thing that’s necessary to ensure a sweet-towing rig is the appropriate amount of tongue weight. 10-15% of the trailer weight appropriate, and will greatly reduce sway. That, unfortunately, puts enough downforce on the ball of some vehicles to actually unload the front wheels as well as bottoming out the rear suspension. That’s why Draw-Tite was one of the pioneers in weight-transferring hitches that take weight from the trailer and transfer it forward to the tow vehicle’s front wheels, leveling it out and improving virtually every aspect of the tow/trailer dynamic.

    Draw-Tite is a subsidiary of Cequent, which has dominated the towing market since the turn of the century, when it acquired a large number of trailering companies, including Draw-Tite, Reese, Hidden Hitch, Bargman, Tekonsha and others. Draw-Tite’s market has always centered on bolt-on hitches that are vehicle-specific. A customer can simply take the Draw-Tite trailer hitch out of the box and bolt it on, often within a half-hour or less.

    With its many sister companies as resources, Draw-Tite has an extremely wide portfolio of high-quality products to solve all of your towing problems. Long experience in every aspect of the towing market gives Draw-Tite the ability to develop new, innovative products that fill the needs of recreational and professional drivers everywhere.

    2003 Honda Odyssey | Posted by Richard | (Renton, WA)

    I received my Draw - Tite 75270 within days of my purchase. Very impressed with the quality of the product. Have yet to actually use it, the initiation trip is next week, It looks nice on our Odyssey, looks sleek, hidden under the rear bumper. The installation was more time consuming than it was stated in the instructions, definitely recruit a friend or family member to assist,as the hitch assembly is a bit heavy and cumbersome for one person to do alone, otherwise the installation is pretty basic and easy to follow instructions.
