Draw-Tite Trailer Hitches & Towing
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. Our customers have chimed in regularly about their Draw-Tite hitches and other towing products.
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. Its now a simple task to specify the weight rating of every component of the vehicle/trailer assembly, guaranteeing improved safety and towing ease.

Pick and choose from not only a receiver-style hitch that fits your vehicle and is rated to tow a trailer thats of the correct max weight for it, but a wide assortment of ball mounts and balls. Its 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, its not one-size-fits-all. And a poor choice in setting up a trailer can result in a dangerous, evil-handling setup.
One thing thats 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. Thats 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 vehicles front wheels, leveling it out and improving virtually every aspect of the tow/trailer dynamic. Theyre also pioneers into the sway control field, taming trailer sway with several different technologies.
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.
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; over a dozen in all. Draw-Tites market has always centered on bolt-on hitches that are vehicle-specific. A dealer or customer can simply take the hitch out of the box and bolt it on with the included hardware, often within a half-hour or less.
Have the receiver hitch installed by a professional. The Jeep needs to be lifted up to work under the back end. I understand this is a 2 person job. The cost was about $90.00.
Even though the box that the hitch came in was not damaged, the hitch was still scratched and chipped. Nothing that spray paint couldn't fix. New hitch should look new.
I bought this kit because it looked like it would be a simple installation, and it was. I had watched the video prior to attempting to install, and it was dead-on. The connectors fit as they should and running the wiring was a snap. I did use a few more zip ties than provided but that was just to make it look pretty. Very pleased and I highly recommend this kit if you need to add trailer lights.
This hitch is solid and easy to install. I docked one star for installation due to one bolt placement. I chewed up my wrist in a major way trying to get to the bolt on the driver's side of my (2013 Mazda 5) car. It would have been a lot easier to drill a new hole than that one little tab. Other than the one bolt, I had no other issues. I have one on my other car as well and use a 4-place Yakima bike rack.
Was exactly how it was described and was extremely easy to install... All hardware was supplied. The only thing was that I didn't have tow hooks on my 2500 so I had to go out and get more washers to take up the space until I purchase the tow hooks. But all in all, it is an excellent product.
I was very pleased with the ordering and shipping of this item. I received excellent service and continuous feedback. I received the hitch within 3 days as promised. It was very easy to install, and I am very pleased with it. I will be ordering more items for my Hyundai Santa Fe in the future. Thanks again for excellent service. Buddy
Easy to install, just need to have another set of hands to hold it up. Take muffler down from rubber hangers; use a jack stand to hold it. Then once hitch is in place, don't forget to put muffler back into the rubber hangers. Overall was happy with this hitch.
This was installed by my ex, and he said it was very easy to install. Now I have to buy him some beer. No problem here! I'm so enjoying taking myself and bike out to the park. Money well spent. Thank you, CARiD.
This hitch was easy to install. And coming from someone who isn't that mechanically inclined... that's saying a lot! I did this install myself with ease, and it only took about an hour. Very nice product, I highly recommend this to anyone. Thanks.
