Class IV hitches are very similar to Class III hitches except for the weight ratings.
Class IV hitches are Weight Carrying (WC) and Weight Distributing (WD) hitches depending on the vehicle and hitch specifications. Not all Class IV hitches are rated to be both. The hitch specifications will alert you to a hitch that is not weight distributing.
Class IV Ultra Frame Receivers from Draw-Tite have a Weight Carrying rating up to 16,000 lbs. Gross Trailer Weight (WCGTW) with a maximum trailer Tongue Weight (WCTW) of 1,950 lbs. depending on the model. Ultra Frames that are used for Weight Distributing are rated up to 16,000 lbs. Weight Distributing Gross Trailer Weight (WDGTW) with a maximum trailer Weight Distributing Tongue Weight (WDTW) of 1,600 lbs. depending on the model. See Product Specifications below for the exact rating of your particular hitch.
This style of hitch typically uses a 2" square receiver opening. The use of a ball mount and hitch ball of the same rating or higher is required to achieve maximum towing capacity. To use the weight distribution side of the hitch a weight distribution system is required.
Class IV 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.
