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 the symbol of fine craftsmanship in the towing industry.|
Over half a century and millions of trailer hitches later, our 800 dedicated employees put the same care and patience into every hitch we build today as Bill Whichello did over fifty years ago. We also make use of technologically advanced equipment and the most experience in the industry to meet the challenges of today's tow vehicles.
The basis of Draw-Tite's continued success is that our trailer hitches are custom-fit for each vehicle. This makes them easy to install. A dealer simply bolts Draw-Tite's one piece, welded trailer hitches to the vehicle's 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. If they need assistance, the dealer they bought from can easily be hundreds of miles away.
Currently, Draw-Tite manufactures over 750 different trailer hitches and over 600 accessories and parts covering approximately 3850 vehicles. And, we operate a manufacturing facility totaling 100,000 square feet of state-of-the-art production capabilities in Goshen, Indiana.
