Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2014 Honda Odyssey - Curt

Today on our 2014 Honda Odyssey, we'll be installing the Curt trailer hitch, part number C13068. Now, this is what the hitch looks like installed on our van. Now, we'll give you a couple measurements that will help you select accessories like bike racks and cargo carriers. From the top of the receiver tube to the ground is roughly 13 inches, and from the center of the hitch pinhole to the outermost edge of the bumper, is about 6 inches. Now, let's go and see how it's installed. The first step is going to be to remove this panel right here, and we do that by removing these three fasteners. We'll also need to remove this hex head bolt up here and the screw up here.

After the hardware is removed, our panel just drops out of place. One thing we're going to do here before we get ready to install the hitch, we're going to clean out the threads and the holes that we're going to mount our hardware to. To do that, spray some kind of lubricant up there. Take tube brush and just brush them out. Now, this tube brush we're using is also available on our website, it's part number 814092.

Now, there is hardware included for the kit which we're also going to mount a third bolt back here. I'll show you how to do that in just couple minutes. Here's our mounting locations, the weld nuts for the passenger side of the vehicle. We're going to repeat the same process we did on the driver side to spray them out and clean them up with tube brush. This is the hardware we'll be using for four of the mounting locations. Use this washer.

We'll always make sure the teeth of the washer faces up against the bottom of the hitch. Just take our bolt and washer, feed it up into place. This third location back here is the one we're going to mount through the frame. To do that, we'll take one of our bolt guides, take our block with a carriage bolt and we'll bolt through the frame onto the top of the hitch and we'll secure with this nut on the bottom. Through this, a bolt guide we're going to be using.

We're going to feed it through here and now through this side. With the bolts guide routed through, we'll add our block over there and thread our bolt in. We'll then feed the hardware into the frame. Pull on the bolts guide and drops right out. Now, we can get ready to mount our hitch onto our van, and it always helps to have a second set of hands around to help do this. In this application if you don't have somebody else to help you, you can always use the exhaust on the passenger side to hold the hitch up momentarily while we secure our hitch on the driver side. With the flange nut holding the hitch up on the driver side, we'll go ahead and move over to the passenger side of the van and secure the hitch over here using two of the four bolts I showed you earlier. We'll move back over to the driver side, and I'll put the other two bolts in. Now, with the hardware in place, we'll snug the bolts down. With the bolts tightened up on the hitch, we'll go ahead and torque them to the amount specified in the instructions. Now, the panel we removed earlier can be installed if you wish, this is optional. If you want to install it, just slide back into place, line up your factory mounting points, and reinstall using the factory hardware. That concludes today's installation of the Curt trailer hitch part number C13068 on our 2014 Honda Odyssey. .

Curt hitch C13068 and cover I-728 installed on an Oddy 2012 for the purpose of installing a YAKIMA bike rack. Due to the combination of OEM price and the need for large cutouts in the bodywork required I decided on CURT aftermarket vs. OEM. Selected CURT based on ground/receiver ground-clearance, looks and no mods to bumper bodywork. I installed the CURT hitch by myself in about 1 hour, I used a furniture dolly to move the hitch into position and cribbed it with wood to get to the right height. I did not undo the exhaust mount. Some people have expressed concern over the hitch design, at the end of the day in this "product liability environment" I assume CURT is doing their homework and properlly designed the hitch. Mind you, I do not expect to connect anything heavier than a loaded Yakima 4 bike rack (less than 250 lbs loaded). I do not think I can add to the wealth of information provided by etrailer and the CURT instructions themselves, other than I disagree with the comment to not install the driver side plastic cover. I re-installed by trimming with a box cutter a approx. 1/2 in. × 4 in. corner section. With regards to e-trailer. They could do a slightlly better job packing the hitch so that they do not break through the box (mine showed up sticking out with some minor scuffs). Mind you, I would buy from them again tomorrow based on all the product info, videos and reviews (good and bad), THANK YOU and Kudos I deduct the CURT hitch 1 notch, for not extending the wings to capture all three (3) OEM mount points. Other notes: I separatelly installed an OEM tranny cooler as recommended by HONDA. 71131

Good evening!Great job in placing back the driver side plastic cover. I have a question on photo no.1, whats the extension above the hitch

That is actually a hitch cover that he wedged up above the hitch to get it out of the way. If you look closely, you can see it has a tether that goes around the hitch behind the collar at the moth of the hitch. It is part I-728.

Hi Francisco, Thanks for the great review. It helped us to clear any doubts and decide on the hitch. One humble request...could you please post the picture for where you replaced the driver side plastic cover? Im curious to see how to cut out in order to replace it. Many Thanks!

You just need to cut on one corner of the inside lip of cover, you are cutting the tip of this lip. Take your time, place the cover and cut away the interference little-by-little. I placed and removed three times because I wanted a tight fit and did not wanted to cut more material than required. Attached find two images indicating the location where I had to cut on the inside lip of the cover. I used a box cutter and shaved little by little, you could also use a hot knife or a rotary tool just dont overcut. Take your time.

Great product. Installing the down bolt was easy, my ten year old did it. I went with the Curt hitch because the ends are closed when compared to the hidden hitch or draw-tite. I put this on my 2003 Odyssey, the weld nuts were pretty corroded but everything went on perfectly. I did read several reviews about the customer service at etrailer and how outstanding it is. I agree. I made two separate orders, both shipped from the warehouse 48 hours after the order was placed. 74242

Its been a year, still love the Curt hitch I purchased. Coupled with the Yakima 5 bike rack I purchased from etrailer, my family has been able to mountain bike in Moab, Jackson Hole and Fruita among other places. Never had a problem with the Curt hitch or the Yakima rack.

Kudos to eTrailer for fast shipping and above all the excellent installation videos. The Curt hitch was a snap to install, fit perfectly on our 2007 Odyssey, and looks great also. I bought this over the other choices because I liked the look of the closed end-caps vs. the open tubes (which i suspect have a greater opportunity for debris and rust). I had one minor thing on the install and that was the threading of the bolt onto the leader that is provided (which is excellent), and it was my mistake: I threaded it on too far, and so as a result, once I got it into the hole, I couldn't undo the wire from the bolt, so I had to basically just unwind it - nothing wrong with the product, just a tip for other consumers - only thread enough to pull the bolt through.. :) Once installed, I like the fact that the receiver is slightly recessed from the bumper because there's less chance of smacking your leg on the metal bar. I also bought the Curt rubber end-cap as a precaution. eTrailer also upgraded our shipping so we received in just 3 days, even though we used standard free shipping. So a big thanks for the upgrade and we are extremely satisfied with this purchase and can recommend eTrailer whole-heartedly. 89170

All companies should be run like this one. I ordered Tuesday night and received my hitch on Thursday (for FREE!) and had excellent email status messages along the way. The hitch arrived in perfect condition. Install: I'm a Gomer and I got this thing installed by myself...at night...in 40-minutes. No problems, no injuries. The printed instructions weren't terribly clear where they explained the fish-wire/carriage bolt step, but the online video clarified things perfectly for me. I recommend having a friend help, but solo-install is possible. Product: Excellent build quality and well-finished. Mine arrived with no obvious blemishes from shipping. I liked the tapered lines of the Curt hitch compared to the other products when choosing one for my Odyssey. Seeing one out in public before ordering sealed the deal. There are only 4 threaded attachment poins on the Odyssey frame, so the 4 bolts and one fished-in bolt for redundancy give me plenty of confidence. I plan to use a bike rack, but I wouldn't hesitate to pull a small boat. I wouldn't tow anything huge with this vehicle regardless of the hitch rating. Thanks guys! My neighbor should be ordeering soon! 102484

The original hitch arrived packed loosely in plastic and was damaged with lots of scrapes and exposed metal. I contacted customer service and they sent a second hitch with no questions asked. The second hitch arrived well packed in a cardboard box with bracing inside. The hitch was is excellent condition. It took me a little under an hour to install the hitch myself from opening the box to putting away the tools. You can install the hitch without lowering the exhaust, but you have to be a little creative with the wrench angles. I was also able to reinstall the plastic fairing on the drivers side by trimming it back a bit to get around the hitch. There's a little reinforcing rib that is perfect to cut along. Overall I am pleased with the hitch (we'll see how it goes through a few winters though) and the ease of installation. While the condition of the first hitch was disappointing, I am happy with how the situation was handled. 41613

The hitch arrived without issue. The box had no damage or any look of being mishandled. Installed the hitch with reletive ease although a second hand could have been used in certain instances. I chose not to mess with moving the exhaust. We are excited to utillize the hitch when we embark on our annual camping trip! 133369

Despite being easy to install (all hitches for the Odyssey are that way), the design is simply lacking when compared to the Hidden Hitch or Draw-Tite. The Odyssey has three factory mount points on each side. The Curt hitch only uses four of the factory mounts, their fifth requires you to snake a bolt up. While not difficult, it's simply a poor design compared to the alternatives (they use all six factory mounts) Unfortunately I didn't notice this until the hitch arrived (my bad, and in to way a reflection on etrailer, their service was great).

Comments

Thank you so much Chris for this review. I was leaning towards the Curt trailer hitch because of the extra 12 inch of clearance that it gives over the Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite which both have 12 inches as opposed to 12 1/2. But, now that I have verified how many bolts are used, I will probably go with Hidden Hitch. Thanks again.

I ordered the hitch receiver to attach a bike rack to our '08 Honda Odyssey. I got tired of the marks the bike tires and pedals left on the vehicle due to rubbing with our old rack. The hitch receiver was delivered very quickly and installation was simple. The installation videos posted on etrailer.com were helpful and accurate. The printed instrutions included with the product were clear and accurate to my vehicle. It took me about 35 minutes to get the hitch installed. The qaulity of the hitch receiver exceeds my current needs as I am only attaching a bike rack and not towing anything heavy, but it seems to be extremely well-constructed. The steel seems to be very heavy-duty and all of the welds look to be well-done. 43881

I was quite satisfied with the product. Although the 2-layer cardboard box was pierced by the end of the hitch when it arrived, it was undamaged. I like the way it looks on my van, too. The video was invaluable in helping me install the unit, especially the part with the fish wire, since details in the photos in the printed instructions were hard to make out. I had requested a hitch for a 2014 Odyssey but was a bit concerned that since the latest video showed an installation on a 2013, it might not apply to the 2014 model. A note somewhere that the design is unchanged would have allayed those fears. Otherwise, a great product, website, and company. 134757

I am very happy with my purchase. The Curt trailer hitch arrived sooner than expected and in perfect condition. The hitch was well packed in a cardboard box so there was no damage during shipping- this was one of my biggest concerns when ordering. Etrailer did a great job of letting me know the status of my order. Installing the hitch was easy and took less than a half and hour from the time I started to get the tools out until I was done cleaning up. I would not hesitate to purchase from Etrailer again. 47348

I really liked the look of this hitch with the circular tube. I would prefer that it was tucked in under the bumper a little more, but it's not an eye-sore. It was fairly easy to install with a little bit of elbow grease. I first thought the hitch wasn't wide enough as the holes did not line up. Getting the bolts screwed in was a challenge. If I still had my lift I could have used that to push up and hold the hitch in place so that the holes lined up. Once it's installed, it works great. 150504

My Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver came VERY fast. Instructions and videos were extremely helpful and made the installation go very quickly. It took me longer to clean out the existing holes on the van, than it did to actually install the hitch. Wiring could not have been any easier. I will finally be able to haul my trailer and bikes. I cannot stress enough how great it was to work with etrailer. I don't buy hitches every day, but Anything automotive in the future will be from etrailer. 12562

My order arrived very promptly. Hardware included a bolt that was poorly threaded which I replaced with one I purchased from the local hardware store. Installation was fairly easy, I wished I had a hoist and an extra set of hands. I do believe some of the other hitch designs are better. Had I looked closer at all of the products, I may have chosen the Hidden Hitch unit instead. However, for the bike rack use and light towing I intend to use this for, I am sure it will work just fine. 35833

I got the hitch in one day. I wonder if someone delivered it personally. Installed very easily. I had it installed within the estimated time on the website. The flap removal on the drivers side was the only thing that did not go perfectly. There were some areas on the hitch that were scrapped up a little. This is the third hitch I have purchased from etrailer. I am sure I will order more in the future as I need them. 82568

Great hitch,fits tight to bumper and looks great.Only thing I would suggest is a tap be included in hardware!! The bolt holes on my 2005,after 6 years in New England, were rusted over badly. After tapping them, the job went smooth though.Unless your van is like new or you live where it doesnt cause rust, do yourself a favor and get a 12x1.25 tap and re-tap the holes first. 20577

Piece of cake to install. Even with never having done this before all I needed was my socket wrench set and my son and I had it on in a half hour. 60657

Expert Answers about Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" - C13068Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Recommended Hitch with Best Ground Clearance for 2013 Honda Odyssey
  • As you can see by the photo I have edited for you, the Hidden Hitch, Draw-Tite and Curt hitches available for your Odyssey are all pretty similarly designed. When we installed all three hitches on a 2013 Odyssey, we found that the Curt # C13068 had about a 1/2 inch greater ground clearance (12-1/2 inches) versus 12 inches for the Hidden Hitch # 87479 and Draw-Tite # 75270 models. The receiver of the Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite hitches are recessed a bit more under the vehicle, but none...

  • Will Hollywood Racks SE 4 # HR1400 Fit on a 2012 Honda Odyssey with Curt Hitch # 13608
  • Yes, the Hollywood Racks SE 4 Bike Rack, # HR1400, will fit on your 2012 Honda Odyssey with the Curt Trailer Hitch, # C13068. In the folded position, the closest part of this bike rack will be 6 inches away from the face of the trailer hitch receiver. Once the Curt hitch is installed, the distance from the face of the Curt trailer hitch and the rear-most edge of your bumper will be 3 inches. You will have 3 inches of clearance between the rear-most part of your bumper and the closest...

  • Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Options for 2004 Honda Odyssey
  • For carrying 4 or 5 bikes, you will need a hitch mounted bike rack which would require the installation of a hitch on your 2004 Odyssey. I would recommend the Curt Class III receiver, part # C13068. For 5 bikes, you would be limited to a hanging-type rack, where the bikes would be suspended from the rack by their top frame tube. The bike frame tube will sit in padded cradles and will be secured with sturdy rubber straps. Many racks use an additional anti-sway strap that wraps around...

  • Fixing Broken Weld Nuts on 2006 Honda Odyssey Installing a CURT Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • The weld nuts were probably still dirty, when you were installing the hitch which caused the weld nut to brake off when putting torque on it. If you have not already installed the other bolts, you will want to clean them out with WD-40 and wire brush (see video link). What you will want to do is take some vice grips to hold the head of the bolt in place, then take an angle grinder with a cut off wheel or a reciprocating saw to cut the bolt. Then, using an access hole towards the front...

  • Other Than a Hitch What Parts Are Needed To Tow a Trailer With a 2008 Honda Odyssey
  • Yes, in addition to a hitch, you will need a ball mount, ball and trailer wiring. I will explain what the parts are and what they do, then I will include some recommendations of parts for your 2008 Honda Odyssey. A ball mount slides into the receiver, or square opening in the hitch. They are available in different heights so that depending on how tall the vehicle is and how tall the trailer is, a ball mount can be selected that will keep the whole rig level. Balls are available in...

  • Is Cutting Or Trimming Required for 2010 Honda Odyssey Trailer Hitch Installation
  • The CURT Trailer Hitch, # C13068, for the 2010 Honda Odyssey does have an installation note that states models have underbody fascia covering the driver side frame. This will be removed and can be left off or trimmed and reattached. I have included a link to the installation instructions and a link to a video showing a typical installation for you. Some items you may need to complete your Class III towing setup are listed below. Drawbar # 2923 Hitch Ball # 19260 or # 63845...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Honda Odyssey to Carry 5 Bikes
  • First, the most popular Class III trailer hitch and what I recommend for your 2013 Honda Odyssey is Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 87479. Ground clearance can be estimated but ultimately every vehicle is going to be just slightly different meaning if you install one of these hitches on your Odyssey it might measure 11 inches, or 12, or 13. As for the amount of hardware used to install each of the hitches the Hidden Hitch is going to use 6 attachment point whereas the Curt does just have...

  • Will The Hidden Hitch From My 2002 Honda Odyssey Fit My 2011 Honda Odyssey
  • Most of the hitches that we carry for the 2002 Honda Odyssey are also compatible with the 2011 Honda Odyssey. The item that you referenced, Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # C13068, is compatible with the 1999-2011 Honda Odyssey. The Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch, part # 87479, will fit the 1999 - 2011 Honda Odyssey. I have linked instructions and a video installation for the Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch, part # 87479, that you may find informative. Also linked is an FAQ on trailer...

  • Availability of Hitch, Wiring, and Transmission Cooler For 2004 Honda Odyssey
  • For your 2004 Honda Odyssey the CURT Class III 2 Inch Hitch, part # 13561, has been discontinued and replaced with the CURT Class III 2 Inch Hitch, part # C13068. I am including a link to the installation instructions on the # C13068 hitch. The Tow Ready T-One Wiring Harness, part # 118336, is the correct wiring harness to install a 4-Way at the rear of your vehicle. I am including a link to the installation instructions on the wiring harness. The Derale Series 8000 Transmission Cooler,...

  • Height of the Curt Hitch # C13068 from Hitch to Ground on a 2007 Honda Odyssey
  • We have had the chance to install the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13068 on a few Honda Odyssesys like your 2007 model and have found that the hitch will sit any where from 12-1/2 inches to 13 inches from the ground. To help you pick out the correct rise/drop ball mount for you setup check out the FAQ article I attached that details how to pick out the correct ball mount so that your trailer will be towed as level as possible.

  • Height of Curt Class III Hitch Receiver, Part # C13068, When Installed on a 2007 Honda Odyssey
  • For the video on the Curt Class III hitch receiver for 2007 Honda Odyssey, Part # C13068, as you noted we did not happen to include the measurement of the distance from the ground to the top of the installed receiver, as we did for the Hidden Hitch # 87479. However, since we have both parts in stock I visited the warehouse and took measurements that allow me to determine what the approximate after-installation hitch height will be for the Curt. Since both hitch receivers mount to the...

  • 4 Bike Platform Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2011 Honda Odyssey with a Curt Hitch
  • If you have a Class III Curt hitch like the Curt Hitch # C13068 then the Thule T2 Platform-Style 4 Bike Carrier # TH916XTR-918XTR. You will want to measure the opening on your hitch to make sure you have a hitch with a 2 inch opening to be sure you have a 2 inch hitch. Check out the FAQ article I attached on hitch sizes as well as the picture I attached that shows how you will measure the opening. The Swagman XTC4 part # S64665 would also be an option that should work well for you....

  • Are CURT Trailer Hitches Compatible with Pro Series Weight Distribution Systems
  • A CURT Trailer Hitch, like # C13068, is compatible with weight distribution systems made by Pro Series. On any hitch, you would check the installation instructions to determine if the hitch is rated for use with weight distribution. You will also want to check the vehicle owners manual to determine if the vehicle manufacturer allows the use of weight distribution. To determine the correct weight distribution system for you, you will want a system that has a tongue weigh capacity range...

  • Hitch Pin Hole to Bumper Distance for Curt Hitch # C13068 Installed on 2007 Honda Odyssey
  • The exact position of the hitch pin hole on Curt Class III 2-inch hitch receiver # C13068 when installed on a Honda Odyssey will vary among various model years. Your 2007 is the same (3rd) generation as the 2010 vehicle shown in the linked video and so should share the 4-1/4-inch hitch pin hole to bumper distance. However, I did also go to our warehouse to take a measurement of this hitch that will allow you to approximate the position of the hitch pin hole on your vehicle once the...

  • Recommendation for Swinging Bike Carrier and Hitch for 2012 Honda Odyssey
  • The Curt Class III Trailer Hitch, # C13068, is a great choice for your 2012 Honda Odyssey. This custom fit hitch bolts directly to your Odyssey's frame with no welding required. You are correct, the measurements we have show the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer edge of the Odyssey's bumper being 5-1/2 inches. Since the Yakima FullSwing, # Y02465, only has a distance of 6-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the rack, it might be a bit tight...

  • Folding Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier for a 2012 Honda Odyssey and Curt Trailer Hitch 13068
  • When we installed Curt trailer hitch # C13068 on a 2012 Honda Odyssey, from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the rear bumper measured 5-1/2 inches. For Curt cargo carrier # C18132 it measures 3 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier when folded. Based on these measurements the carrier will not fold up without hitting the bumper. We have Draw-Tite cargo carrier, # 6502, which is a little smaller at 20x48 inches but it measures 7-1/2...

  • Folding Cargo Carrier Compatibility with a 2013 Honda Odyssey
  • The Curt Cargo Carrier # C18131 that you referenced should work well on your 2013 Honda Odyssey in the folded down position as long as you have a hitch with a 2 inch opening like the Curt Hitch part # C13068. However, there would not be enough clearance for the carrier to fold up. This carrier has a distance of 16 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest rail of the carrier when folded down and 3 inches when folded up. All of the hitches available for your vehicle...

  • Can Class III Hitch from 2001 Honda Odyssey Be Installed on 2012 Honda Odyssey
  • Even though the 2001 and 2012 model years of the Honda Odyssey are in different generations of the vehicle (the second and fourth generations, respectively) they can both be fitted with many of the same hitch receivers. Hidden Hitch # 87479, Curt Hitch # C13068 and Draw-Tite # 75270 are all Class III 2-inch hitches that will fit both model years of the Odyssey. You can order correct replacement hardware by entering part # RHK (for Replacement Hardware Kit) in the search box on our...

  • Hitch Pin Hole to Bumper Distance for Curt Hitch vs. Hidden Hitch on 2007 Honda Odyssey
  • I can actually do better than frame hole to pin hole measurements. I can tell you what the actual clearance will be! For a 2007 Honda Odyssey, when we installed Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 87479 the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the rear bumper was 5 inches. I have linked a video that shows this for you. For Curt hitch # C13068 it is going to be about the same. We do not have the measurement for a 2007 Odyssey but on the 2005 it was 3 inches, on a 2010...

  • What Is The Bolt Hole To Bolt Hole Distance Needed On A 2007 Nissan Xterra Trailer Hitch
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch, # C13068, you have referenced is for a 1999-2011 Honda Odyssey. It will not fit on a 2007 Nissan Xterra. The Curt Trailer Hitch, # 13514, is the correct hitch for your 2007 Nissan Xterra. The distance between the bolt holes, side to side, is 40-1/4 inches for the front two sets of holes and 40-3/4 inches for the rear set of bolt holes. The distance between the front bolt holes on the side brackets of the hitch is 2-5/8 inches. The distance between the middle...

So this hitch would give you a little more clearance than the Curt hitch with the Yakima FullSwing Bike Rack part # Y02465 you are interested in.

If you will be installing a brake controller kit # ETBC7 the included 7-way will plug into the 4-pole from the harness and you will make the additional wiring connections required for the other 3 functions supported by a 7-way connector (12V power, brake signal and reverse light).

  • What is the Highest Capacity Hitch Available for the 2011 Honda Odyssey
  • All of the hitches we offer for your 2011 Honda Odyssey have a 3,500 lb towing capacity. There aren't any available with a higher capacity. Even if there was I doubt your vehicle would have the needed capacity. Check your owners manual to see what the towing capacity is. Most likely it wouldn't be enough to tow a 5,500 lb trailer. In a towing setup the weakest component is the overall capacity as a setup is only as strong as it's weakest component.

  • Ground Clearances Of Class II and III Hitches for 2014 Honda Odyssey
  • When we installed the Hidden Hitch Class III # 87479, the Draw-Tite Class III # 75270 and the Curt Class III # C13068 on a 2014 Honda Odyssey, we found that the distance from the bottom of the receiver tube to the ground of all three hitches is right at 10-1/2 inches. The Curt Class II you mentioned, part # C12031 offers slightly more clearance at 11-1/2 inches. Low ground clearance is kind of the nature of the beast with the Odyssey.
