Front mount receiver for E-450

This ebay ad says they have a Drawtite front-mount hitch for your E-450. I was surprised that doesn't include E-series for any of their front-mount hitches. However, further snooping on the Drawtite link below, I see the part number is 65001. And search on eTrailer for part number 65001, I found that hitch available from eTrailer at a good price.

Here is a link to that DrawTite receiver on the manufacturer's website (Horizion Brands). Scroll down to the "this product fits" area and note it fits the E-450.
Reese/Drawtite hitches!

Here's a link to that hitch from I personally prefer to order from eTrailer than from an ebay source.
Grumpy ole man with over 60 years towing experience. Now my heaviest trailer is a 7,000-pound enclosed cargo trailer, RV is a 5,600 pound Skyline Nomad Joey 196-S, and my tow vehicle is a 2019 F-150 Lariat 3.5L EcoBoost SuperCab with Max Tow (1,904 pounds payload capacity).

I have an E-350. I just took mine to the local trailer shop and let them figure it out. Cost me about the same as I could buy one and have shipped to me.

I'm not sure if it bolted on using existing holes or if they had to do some drilling. Either way, it wasn't me underneath doing the install.

I am happy I added one. Great place to carry the bikes or a cargo box when the rear hitch is being used for the scooter.
