Honda CR-V Questions

  • Normally trailer coupler height is around 17 inches, from the ground to the bottom of the coupler, and most hitch manufacturers design their hitches to work with a ball mount that will end up very close to this measurement. I am including a link to an instruction page detailing how to measure for the correct ball mount and how to measure the ball mount. With the Curt Trailer Hitch, item # 13555, for your 2008 Honda CRV the recommended ball mount is the Draw-Tite Ball Mount,...

  • The correct torque specification for the installation hardware on Curt hitch # 13314 is 70-ft/lbs. In order to have the full rated capacity for this hitch (350-lbs tongue weight and 3500-lbs gross trailer weight) it must be installed to this spec. I have linked the installation instructions for your review. These are brief but they do include much important information to ensure your hitch installation is complete and safe. Step 4 mentions the torque spec. Please also note...

  • There are a couple different style bike racks that may work for you. You stated you want a bike rack that goes behind your CR-V and not on the roof. We offer trunk mount bike racks and the other style bike rack we offer would be a hitch-mounted bike rack. The trunk mount bike rack I recommend is the Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier, part # SA805. This is an easy bike rack to put on and take off the rear of your CR-V. It uses 6 straps to secure it to the back of the vehicle and...

  • Yes, I checked with Roadmaster and base plates # 521567-1 are listed as a fit for the 2014 Honda CR-V, all models, but excluding models that have a brushguard or extra bumper trim package. You will also need a compatible tow bar. The Falcon 2, # RM-520, is a popular option for CR-V owners. You will also need some safety cables like # RM-643. In addition to the above items you will also need to get a lighting system. I recommend a simple magnetic kit like # C-ATL20A because...

  • The limiting factor is not the capacity of RV bumper hitch # S64025. The main issue is the capacity of the bumper. You will need to contact the RV manufacturer to find out the specifications for your bumper. Also, you will have to be certain you have the right bumper, as this hitch is designed exclusively for 4 inch by 4 inch continuous-welded steel bumpers. This adapter is not compatible with aluminum or spot-welded steel bumpers. There is no drilling required, as the hitch slips...

  • I will be more than happy to make some bike rack recommendations for you. I can give you my top picks that fit the criteria that you have provided but there are some other important factors you will need to consider. Then I can provide a more specific recommendation. The year, make, and model of the vehicle, the size trailer hitch, and the type of bikes is all important. A 2013 Honda CR-V like yours could have a Class I, II or III hitch with either a 1-1/4 inch or 2 inch receiver...

  • For the 2014 Ford C-Max, you'd need the Roadmaster Base Plate Kit, part # 524432-1. You'll also need some other items to complete your towing system. You'll need: -Safety cables like part # RM-643. -A wiring solution so the taillights work along with the RV, like the wireless magnetic tow lights from Pilot Automotive, part # NV-5164. -A supplemental braking system like the SMI Stay-In-Play DUO, part # SM99251 I'll link you to some of our help articles that contain much...

  • I spoke with my contact at Thule and she said the Thule Trailway bike rack is an exclusive bike rack that Thule sells to certain retailers. The Trailway is very similar to the Thule Parkway # TH956. The main difference is the Trailway only comes as a 4 bike bike rack for 1-1/4" receivers with a 2" sleeve adapter. The Parkway comes in 2 and 4 bike configurations and options for both 1-1/4" and 2" hitches. I have included a video review of the Thule Parkway on a 2012 Honda CR-V.

  • You are correct, the trailer hitch is rated higher than the 2013 Honda CR-V but you still have to go by the weight capacities of the vehicle since they are lower. So you will want to stay within the manufacturers 1500 pound limit, even though the hitch is rated higher. The 2300 pound trailer is going to be too much for the CR-V. You would either need a different tow vehicle or an even lighter trailer. If you go with a lighter trailer then you will also need a ball mount, pin...

  • Hitch bike racks are generally preferred because they install more securely, they don't touch any painted surfaces, and they can carry more bikes at a time. My favorite hitch bike rack to recommend is the Thule Vertex Swing part # TH9031XT because it can swing out and away from the rear of the vehicle with bikes loaded. You would need a hitch for this bike rack. For that you would want the part # 75742. I attached review and install videos for both products. Both show a...

  • We have had a chance to install the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C13119, on a 2012 Honda CR-V so I attached a link to the installation video for you to check out. I also attached a picture from the installation instructions for you to check out as well. You may also be interested in the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 75742. This hitch will have about the same visibility under the bumper as the Curt hitch, but the crossbar begins to recede under the vehicle beginning at the...

  • We offer three Class lll trailer hitches that are designed to fit your 2015 Honda CR-V. I recommend the Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch, part # 87621. This hitch has a 2 inch receiver opening. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back edge of the bumper on a 2015 CR-V is 2 inches. The Curt part # C13119 and the Draw-Tite part # 75742, both have the same measurements from the pin hole to the back of the vehicle but I like the 87621 because it costs a little...

  • We offer several types of water-sport carriers for kayaks and surfboards including both rack-mount types and foam block designs that require no roof rack at all. These are quite lightweight and cost-effective; this type can be seen on the link provided. Of course we also offer a range of rack-mount water-sport carriers as well. These rack-mount carriers are generally chosen based on the shape of the roof rack crossbars employed. I have linked two pages on our site, one for...

  • First you will need to start with a base plate kit, the Blue Ox base plate kit part # BX2258 would be an excellent choice. Next, you will need a tow bar. For that I would go with the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar # BX7365 as it is the most popular tow bar we have with other CRV owners. This come with safety cables. For tow bar wiring I would recommend the Hopkins Kit part # HM56304. This will plug in line with your taillights and allow the tow vehicle to activate the turn signals...

  • Blue Ox does make some good products and the Patriot # BRK2012 is one of the best braking systems you could use. It is relatively easy to install, much more so than some other braking systems out there. And it can be used with active power assist braking systems. I would go with it. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. I have also included a link to an FAQ article on supplemental braking systems for you to view. For the BX2258 base plates,...

  • For your 2006 Honda CRV that has an offset spare tire you could use either the Thule Spare Me 2 Bike Carrier # TH963PRO or the Yakima SpareTime 2 Bike Carrier # Y02598. I like that the Yakima has narrower arms which will make loading bikes easier, but the Thule is about half the weight, which would make installing and uninstalling the rack a little easier. I attached a picture of the Yakima rack on a 2006 Honda CR-V for you to check out. It may seem like the allen bolts...

  • We do carry hitches that would be a fit for your 2014 Honda CRV. I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C13119. This is a Class lll trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver opening. I have attached a link to an installation video of this hitch on a 2014 Honda CR-V. The numbers you see for the weight capacity of a trailer hitch are not based on the vehicle they are installed on. They are based on the strength of the hitch alone. Although many times a hitch may have a rating...

  • For your 2005 Honda CRV with the outside mounted spare tire, the Thule Spare Time Bike Rack # TH963PRO would be a great choice.The Spare Time has a total weight capacity of 75 lbs. for two bikes. The Yakima SpareMe Bike Carrier, # Y02598, also might work if you take two measurements to be sure. First, the diameter of the center hole in your spare tire wheel needs to be larger than 1-3/16 inches. Second, the distance from the back of the wheel, where the mounting plate will...

  • The RoadMaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar, part # RM-520, will work with RoadMaster EZ, MX, XL or standard base plate kits. I would recommend part # 1541-1 or 1541-3. These are the XL style and are compatible with more towbars than the MX style. If you do not have a brush guard on your vehicle you would use part 1541-1. If you have a brush guard, you would use part 1541-3. If you buy the RoadMaster Combo Kit part # RM-9243-2, it includes an equivalent to Tail Light Isolationg Diode...
