Draw-Tite was started in 1946 by Bill Whichello, an inventor. Bill’s first product was a clothes line tightener. He called it a Draw-Tite. Unfortunately, that was about the time residential clothes dryers became popular and there wasn’t much call for the original Draw-Tite. Fortunately, Bill was also an avid RV’er. He built a trailer hitch for his car and, since he already had the name copyrighted, he called it a Draw-Tite. Soon, Draw-Tite became a symbol of craftsmanship in the towing industry.
The basis of Draw-Tite’s continued success is that their trailer hitches are custom-fit for each vehicle. Currently, Draw-Tite manufactures over 750 different trailer hitches and over 600 accessories and parts covering approximately 3850 vehicle applications. Their trailer hitches are covered by a Nationwide/Lifetime limited warranty.
Fifth Wheel Hitches
A fifth wheel is a specially designed hitch with a king pin receiver that mounts over or forward of the rear axle of the vehicle. The hitch connects with the king pin on the fifth wheel trailer. Fifth wheel hitches are easy to operate and require little maintenance.
A gooseneck hitch is designed for use in a pickup truck similar to a Fifth Wheel. The difference is that the gooseneck uses a ball and coupler verse a kingpin and pin receiver. Typically, the trailers that are most commonly used for this type of gooseneck hitch is a horse trailer.
The ball mount is designed to be inserted into the hitch. There are different styles of ball mounts. Ball Mounts come in different lengths and are used in drop and rise positions. Ball mounts are also referred to as drawbars.
These adapters allow the hitch to be extended and change from 2" opening to a 1-1/4" opening. Please review safety instructions before use.
