Honda Odyssey Questions

  • The two racks are very similar, but they have a few differences. Although they weigh about the same, the SwingDaddy, part # Y02464, has a higher weight capacity than the Thule Vertex Swing # TH9031XT. The Vertex can carry 140 pounds, while the SwingDaddy can handle 150lbs. The Vertex has a longer shank, which would place the rear of the upright portion of the rack approximately 14 inches away from the hitch pin hole in the receiver, versus 11 inches for the SwingDaddy. Both...

  • 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,...

  • I think installing the Recessed Trailer D-Ring, # RR5K, that you have referenced, would be better than # LRB1, because the backing plate is going to help distribute the load from the ring which would be better for your wood decking and make for stronger connection points. If you use this kit with the backing plate an attachment to the frame is not required as the backing plate, which would be underneath the wood floor, would prevent the hardware from pulling out. The only down...

  • The Hollywood Racks SE4, # HR1400, and the Swagman 2+2, # S64692, are two comparable bike racks. Like you have already said, the racks can handle 2 or 4 bikes with the last 2 bike section being removable. The SE4 weighs a little less (shipping weight is 82 pounds) when compared to the 2+2 (89 pound shipping weight). For wheel cradles I give the edge to the 2+2. The actual cradles are more secure than the hoops used on the SE4. Both racks have the same 45 pounds per bike capacity...

  • Thule does not recommend using any rear strap-mounted bike rack on the Odyssey, due to the fact that the rear hatch that the rack would attach to is not strong enough to bear the weight of the rack and the bikes. Hollywood Racks makes a trunk mounted rack that would work for you. Their Over-The-Top model is available in a 2 bike version as part # HRF2 or as a 3 bike version, part # HRF2-3. The rack is designed differently than the Raceway Pro 3 you're asking about. The Over-The-Top...

  • We do offer tire chains for your 2012 Honda Odyssey. Due to the limited wheel well clearance on your vehicle, you must use tire chains with a class S designation. I have attached a link to all of the tire chains that we offer that will fit your vehicle for you to check out. The tire chains that I would recommend for your vehicle are the Pewag Servo RS Tire Chains, # PWRS80. These tire chains are self-tensioning, have a quick release system and use a drape over the tire installation....

  • The hitch I would recommend for your 2012 Honda Odyssey is the Draw-Tite Class III 2-Inch Hitch, part # 75270. This hitch is a 2-inch hitch with a 350-lb tongue weight capacity and a 3,500-lb towing weight capacity. This hitch will accept a 4-bike rack with no problems. I am including a link to the installation instructions on the Draw-Tite hitch. The Thule Parkway 4 Bike rack, part # TH956, you have referenced will work on the 2-inch hitch, but I would also recommend to look...

  • First, the FullSwing, # Y02465 and the SwingDaddy, # Y02464 have comparable arm spacing of approximately 11 inches on center. The SwingDaddy has been around longer. The FullSwing is a new rack and features several upgrades from the SwingDaddy. The cradles on each rack can be adjusted but on the FullSwing the cradles are on a track type of system on the undersides of the arms. This makes adjusting the spacing between the bikes easy. The SwingDaddy cradles would have to be rotated...

  • If your new Honda Odyssey is a 2014 model year then we have some great options for you. The safest way to carry bikes on a vehicle is to use a trailer hitch and hitch mounted bike rack. The most popular trailer hitch for the 2014 Odyssey is # 87479. I have linked a video to the right showing installation for you. For a 4-bike rack there are many options. If you want to be able to open the rear hatch without removing the bikes and the rack then I recommend the Softride Dura,...

  • The weight capacity on the Thule Vertex 5, # TH9030XT, is 150 pounds. That would be 30 pounds per bike. The average adult bike weighs about 30 pounds. Provided that the combined weight of all 5 bikes does not exceed this 150 pound limit the rack can handle the weight. The Vertex and Apex, # TH9026, have the highest capacity of any of the 5 bike models we carry, see link. Regarding the childrens bikes, measure the length of the top frame tubes. If they are greater than 12-3/8...

  • For your 2007 Honda Odyssey the trunk-mount bike rack that I suggest is the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 3 Bike Rack # HRF2-3. This unique carrier features an innovative arched frame design that allows it to work well on vehicles with spoilers. Many otherwise excellent racks cannot be used on such vehicles but the HRF2-3 will avoid any interference with the rear spoiler. If any of the bikes does not have a horizontal top frame tube, such as some women's and alternative design...

  • Since both the Softride Dura # SR26247 and Thule Vertex # TH9029XT use a threaded hitch bolt that draws the shank tightly against the side of the receiver, both bike racks will be very stable in the receiver and should not move around on you. The Dura includes a lock that attaches to the hitch bolt, while with the Vertex the lock # THSTL2 is sold separately. When overstretched, the straps on the Dura are more prone to breakage. I always tell folks to resist the temptation to...

  • The Tow Ready 4 Bike Hitch Mounted Folding Rack, # 63124, is more economical than many other racks because it does not have dual arms, uses hook and loops straps to secure the bikes, and does not have anti-sway cradles. But the single arm could work to your advantage as a very narrow kids bike frame will fit without the use of an adapter. One disadvantage is that the cradles on this rack do not rotate and an adapter would help level the bikes. This rack is a tilting rack that...

  • Many car manufacturers will state that a transmission cooler and/or power steering cooler is needed when towing in order to protect the transmission and power steering pump when under load and to be in compliance with warranty requirements. It is always a good idea to use a transmission cooler and power steering cooler when towing, even if the load is a light one. Doing so will extend the life and optimum operating performance of the components. For a transmission cooler,...

  • 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. Using a hitch mounted roller like part...

  • Before buying snow tire chains you will want to check your owners manual or with the Honda dealer if you can install snow tire chains on your 2011 Honda Odyssey, or if there are any limitations. The snow tire chains that are compatible with the 235/60R17 tire size (Touring) and the 235/65R16 tire size (LX and EX) is the Glacier Square-Link Snow Tire Chains, part # PWPLC1142. These snow tire chains are what I would recommend for your 2011 Honda Odyssey for occasional use. These...

  • The Roadmaster High-Low Hitch Adapter, # RM-048-8, is only designed for tow bar applications. I do have another, more cost effective solution. You could use the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount, # D210. Though it is designed to tow while carrying a cargo carrier or bike rack, you can use it to just carry a cargo carrier. The rise on the receiver is not as high as the High-Low adapter, but the receiver portion has a 350 lb tongue weight.

  • I would recommend the Hidden Hitch Class III Trailer Hitch, item # 87479, for your vehicle. I have listed the items you will need to complete your towing setup for towing a 2,500 pound travel trailer with trailer brakes below. Tekonsha PRODIGY Brake Controller, Item # 90185 T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4 Pole Trailer Connector, Item # 118438 Brake Controller 7 & 4 Way Installation Kit, Item # ETBC7 Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit, Item # D13501...

  • Due to the larger selection of available hitch mounted accessories like ball mounts, bike racks and cargo carriers, we always recommend choosing the Class III 2 inch receiver over the 1-1/4 inch Class II receiver whenever the choice is available. Because of this, I would recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Receiver, part # 75270. To complete your towing system, you will also need: Tow Ready Trailer Wiring Harness, part # 118521 Ball Mount, part # 2753 1-7/8 inch Trailer...

  • When choosing a weight distribution system, the most important factor to consider is the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your 2004 Honda Odyssey. Tongue weight of a trailer is typically calculated to be 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. If your Scamp trailer weighs 2,700 lbs, then the tongue weight may be around 270 lbs to 405 lbs. You must then add the weight of the cargo that you load...
