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,...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • The comparison of the Curt Class III 2-Inch Hitch, part # C13119, and the Draw-Tite Class III 2-Inch Hitch, part # 75742, for the 2013 Honda CRV is very similar. The tongue weight difference of 350 lbs for the Curt and 525 lbs for the Draw-Tite would be one of the biggest differences. Also, if you will be using the hitch to haul a hitch accessory like a bike rack or cargo carrier, the warranty on the Curt hitch does require the use of a stabilizing strap like the Curt Support...

  • 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,...

  • You have a couple of options to carry the kayak on the roof of your 2014 Honda CR-V. First, if you don't want to spend a lot of money I recommend a foam block kit, # SR5525. The blocks set on the vehicle roof and the kayak will rest on the blocks. You will use the included straps to tie down the bow and stern and to secure everything to the vehicle by routing 2 of the straps through the interior of the vehicle. The other option is to install a roof rack and use a carrier on...

  • 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...

  • For both the Thule Pulse # TH624 and the Thule Sonic # TH634B are confirmed as a fit for your Honda CR-V. For both of these cargo boxes, the distance between the knobs that secure the cargo box to the roof rack system is 19 inches. Also for both of these cargo boxes these securing knobs are adjustable so that you can move the box as needed to not interfere with the antenna on your roof. Due to the top profile of the box, for your application I recommend using the Thule Force...

  • The trailer hitch that I would recommend for your 2014 Honda CR-V EXL AWD is the Draw-Tite Class III Max-Frame Trailer Hitch, # 75742. We have installed this on a CR-V, so I attached the installation instructions and the installation video for you to check out. Draw-Tite is a reputable brand that makes both aftermarket and OEM trailer hitches and it does not require any type of support strap for non-trailer loads like the Curt hitches. For a bike carrier, the Swagman XTC-2...

  • It is possible that the Thule Vertex Swing # TH9031XT or the Thule Apex Swing # TH9027 will accommodate your Honda CR-V's swing out door if you have a 2 inch hitch like # 75690 installed. Both racks should clear your rear door since you say that you have 12 inches of clearance from the hitch hole to the bottom of the door. I have linked an image with more measurements for you to check against your CR-V. Since you didn't list how far out the spare sticks, I can't say for sure...

  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Support Strap, # 18050, is designed to help provide extra support to the receiver when carrying hitch mounted bike racks and cargo carriers. For the 2012 Honda CR-V the Curt hitch, # C13119, requires a support strap for all non-trailer loads for manufacturer warranty requirements. To use the suppport strap with a cargo carrier like the Curt 20x48 Cargo Carrier, # C18145, you would need to loop one end of the strap through the cargo carrier top rail and...

  • 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...
