Class V hitches are very similar to Class III & IV hitches except for the weight ratings.

Class V hitches are Weight Carrying (WC) and Weight Distributing (WD) hitches. Class V hitches used as Weight Carrying are rated up to 18,000 lbs. Gross Trailer Weight (WCGTW) with a maximum trailer Tongue Weight (WCTW) of 2,000 lbs.

Hitches that are used for Weight Distributing are rated up to 18,000 lbs. Gross Trailer Weight (WDGTW) with a maximum trailer Tongue Weight (WDTW) of 2,500 lbs.

This style of hitch uses a 2-1/2" square receiver opening. The use of a ball mount and hitch ball of the same rating or higher is required.

To use the weight distribution side of the hitch a weight distribution system is required. Class V hitches attach to the vehicle frame only.

Always consult your owner's manual for vehicle rating.

Over fifty years and millions of trailer hitches later, our 500 dedicated employees put the same care and patience into every hitch we build today as Bill Whichello did fifty years ago. We also make use of technologically advanced equipment and the most experience in the industry to meet the challenges of tow vehicles.

The basis of our continued success is that our trailer hitches are custom fit for each vehicle. This makes them easy to install. A dealer simply bolts one piece, welded trailer hitches to the vehicle frame. Most installations take 30 minutes or less.

Our trailer hitches are covered by a Nationwide/lifetime limited warranty. We have over 10,000 dealers throughout North America. So wherever you live or travel, there is always a knowledgeable and helpful Draw-Tite dealer nearby. This is especially important when you consider nearly 100% of our consumers use their trailer hitch to tow outside of their local area.
