I have not been able to tow anything with the newly installed reciever at this time. I'm sure I will be happy with it. The reciever went on very easy and it seems to be of very good quality. I would like for there to be a bracket installed for the trailer lights plug to mount better. I simply "ziptide" the plug to the side of the reciver near the safety chain hooks. That will work ok, but could be a little better for a high end vehicle (2013 Acura). Etrailer did an excellent job shipping (free) fast and easy! Thanks guys!118123

Ordering the hitch was easy by phone and questions were answered to my satisfaction. Within 2-3 hrs I received an email stating my order had been filled, was already shipped, and I should receive in 2-3 business days. Hitch was received in 2 days! Including time to set up ramps to back my RDX on (per suggestion of another customer), I'm certain installation was complete within 15-20 minutes, as stated by other satisfied customers. Plan to use the hitch later this week. Very satisfied customer!103079

Just finished installing hitch on 2013 Acura RDX. Hitch was easy to install and fits perfect. Looks well built - I'm very happy with it. I read a couple of reviews on this site before starting that were very helpful. First thing I'd pass on is that someone suggested that if installing by yourself, use a heavy zip tie to hold one side in place while starting bolt on opposite side, then cut zip tie and install bolt on that side. That worked perfect, wouldn't have thought of that myself. Other advise is to look at you tube video that etrailer produced showing how to do the install on 2013 RDX. VIdeo is short but was very helpful - wish they made a similar video for wiring harness for 2013 RDX - that was a bit more difficult to figure out. 102693

I had a friend help me install the hitch. We used wheel ramps to get a little extra room under the RDX and an inverted five gallon paint bucket to rest the hitch on while we started the bolts. Start to finish less than 20 minutes. Just as advertised.97909

It was easy to put on. Took me ten minutes. Really. One problem. The 3/4 blot and nut would not tighten completly. So i loosened it thinking it was striped. But, it was not and the nut popped out if the sliver holder and was lost in the frame. I got it but it was a pain.86761

Good price and quick shipping. I haven't had a chance to use it yet since I haven't received my bike rack yet. Easily installed on my 2013 Acura RDX by one person (me) using a couple tips I found on the acura forum. 1) use a couple heavy zip ties through the non threaded holes furthest from the rear bumper to hold the hitch In place. 2) put an inverted bucket under the receiver. This makes it easy to install the two threaded bolts. Then cut the zip ties off and install the other two bolts. Took about 20 minutes. 79433

It seems sturdy but I have yet to use it. The only problem was with installation. There are a total of four (4) bolts. Two (2) are metric and two (2) are us std. This slowed me down becase the us std will not fit in the car frame. All the bolts should be the same to idiot proof it. A phone call straightened out my situation. 72203

After discussing our needs with Patrick from etrailer, we ended up ordering a Curt Class III hitch. The hitch arrived quickly -- 2 days after the order was placed. It was installed the next day, and everything works well.66848

Received the Curt Trailer Hitch for our Acura RDX. We will be using the hitch for our Bike Rack. Had ordered the exact hitch on another site and even though they showed it was in stock and my credit card was charged, it turned out it was on backorder. After waiting over 3 weeks I called etrailer and I had my hitch in 4 days. Their Customer Service was Fantastic! The hitch shipped the same day I ordered it and shipping was Free. The price was also less than the other site. I highly recommend ETRAILER.COM 103070

  • Is a Stabilization Strap Required for Curt Trailer Hitch C13130 On a 2013 Acura RDX
  • Curt requires it for all Class I and II hitches and even some Class III hitches. Basically if there was a problem and you were not using stabilization strap # 18050 then the warranty would not cover it. So in that respect, with the Curt hitch you do have to use the strap. The strap does work as far as relieving stress on the trailer hitch. It is easier to use on certain vehicles and accessories than others. But if using the strap at all is a concern then going with a Draw-Tite # 75692 or Hid

  • Is Stabilization Strap Required for Hidden Hitch/Draw-Tite Hitches for Bike Rack on 2014 Acura RDX
  • All of the trailer hitches for the 2014 Acura RDX install in basically the same way. For any of them, the estimate installation time is 30 minutes to an hour depending on several factors. Individual results may vary. Having an assistant will help make things easier, especially when raising the hitch into position. The Curt hitches # C13130 and # C12083 require the stabilization strap # 18050 for non-trailer loads such as a bike rack for their warranty requirements. The strap is meant to relie

  • Comparing Curt, Draw-Tite, and Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitches for a 2014 Acura RDX
  • Trailer hitches # 75692 and 87584 are no longer available. The correct Draw-Tite trailer hitch for a 2014 Acura RDX is # 75784 and the correct Hidden Hitch model is # 87642. But the same question can apply to them. Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch are sister companies. The hitches are for all intents and purposes the same. They even share the same instructions which I have linked for you. These 2 hitches and Curt hitch # C13130 will all look basically the same once installed. They install in the sa

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2014 Acura RDX
  • First, the Curt hitches for your 2014 Acura RDX are going to require the use of a stabilization strap, # 18050, when using the hitch for any non-trailer load such as a bike rack or cargo carrier. It is part of the Curt warranty requirements. The idea is that the strap reduces some of the stress on the hitch. The strap can be difficult to install depending on the vehicle and is considered a hassle by many customers. So I recommend going with a Draw-Tite hitch # 75784. This is a Class III hitc
