Draw-Tite Truck Hitches

Draw-Tite: Custom Trailer Hitches at Low Prices

Truck Hitch

Draw-Tite has been manufacturing custom towing hitches for more than 70 years. The company provides a full spectrum of products for single, dual and triple axle trailers to support the towing of everything from:

  • Boats
  • Campers
  • Landscaping equipment/trailers
  • RVs

Towing equipment: hitch types and optimal loads

Your vehicle can transport a variety of items via a trailer if it has the proper towing equipment. The kind of vehicle being used and its towing capacity (optimal trailer load) will dictate the right size and type of hitch, ball mount and trailer ball (the connectors) for the job.

Zequip carries Draw-Tite hitches in all classes, along with front-mount and ultra frame receivers, to accommodate a range of towing requirements:

  • Includes subcompact/cars, SUVs, vans, light and heavy duty trucks
  • Towing up to 2,000 lbs gross trailer weight (GTW)

The wrong equipment = towing trouble

Using the wrong size or bent hitch, improper alignment and improper cleaning/maintenance of towing parts can result in issues that prevent closure and smooth driving, including:
  • Inability to secure the hitch over the ball
  • Inability to fit and attach the hitch to vehicle weldnuts
  • Exhaust rattle
  • Unresponsive steering
  • Vehicle swaying
Of course, the worst kind of trouble you could get into when towing is putting yourself and other drivers at risk. An imbalanced load can cause instability and unpredictable pitching and swaying on the road. Make sure you know capacity and limits, including:
  • Gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR): vehicle weight limit and towing capacity
  • Gross combination weight rating (GCWR): weight of vehicle and loaded trailer
  • Gross axle weight rating (GAWR): axle weight limit
  • Tongue weight: hitch weight capacity (typically 10 percent of the total trailer weight)
We make sure you have everything you need up front so that you can avoid being stuck, unable to travel, transport or safely do the job. Our Draw-Tite hitches meet and exceed V-5 and SAE J684 standards and are backed by a nationwide lifetime warranty.
