  • Base Plate Recommendation for Flat Towing 2014 Honda CR-V

  • The Blue Ox Kargard II Towed Vehicle Protector # BX88255 that you referenced is designed to attach to the triple lug bolts on the Aventa LX tow bar, but not to the drop receiver. The other end attaches to the motor home bumper as shown in the linked photo from the Blue Ox website. The small gap between the Kargard II and the motor home will not be a concern for debris. This small gap would require that any road debris travel straight up in order to make it through this small space. Moving...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Honda CRV AWD EX
  • The Draw Tite Hitch part # 75742 that you referenced would be your best option for a hitch. Removing the appearance panel would be your best option since your 2014 CRV is a leased vehicle. You might want to confirm that installing a hitch is allowed per the lease agreement. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well. The hitch is about as low profile as you can get as it sit right under the rear bumper. For an economically priced bike rack that can tilt...

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carriers for a 2014 Honda CR-V EX-L with Flush Side Rails
  • First, you are going to need some crossbars to fit the flush mount side rails on the roof of your 2014 Honda CR-V. On the rails there are fixed points to mount crossbars. This means the bars will be in a fixed position and you will not be able to change the bar spread. You can use the following parts to add locking crossbars: AeroBlade bars # THARB47 Foot pack # TH460R Fit kit # THKIT3118 Locks are sold separately, # TH544 For kayak carriers, since ocean kayaks are likely to be...

  • Wiring Umbilical Included With Roadmaster # RM-576 Sterling Tow Bar
  • The Roadmaster Sterling All Terrain Towbar, part # RM-576 includes a female 6-pin plug that would mount to the vehicle being flat towed, so the 6-way umbilical included with the Sterling tow bar would work great for your 2014 CR-V. The wire is 78 inches long, which should be plenty long enough so that no extensions should be needed. The Sterling tow bar provides a channel on the tow bar for the wire to run through, for a clean look and to also provide protection for the wiring. I'll...

  • Will Rightline Sport 3 XL Waterproof Rooftop Cargo Bag # RL100S30 Fit on 2014 Honda CR-V
  • The Rightline Sport 3 XL Waterproof Rooftop Cargo Bag # RL100S30 is a excellent rooftop cargo solution as it combines high capacity, mounting flexibility, and water-proof construction at a cost-effective price. You can take a quick measurement of the width of the available space on your CR-V to estimate the fit of this soft cargo bag. Another great feature of soft bags like this Rightline is that their flexible construction allows them to conform to the size and shape of the available...

  • Parts Recommendation to Flat Tow a 2014 Honda CR-V
  • The base plate I would recommend you use with your Roadmaster Sterling Tow Bar part # RM-576 would be the # 521567-1. There are several other components needed, one of them being safety cables but your Sterling came with those already. For lighting I would recommend the part # HM56304. This will install easily and will allow your tow vehicle to control the taillights of the CR-V. I attached an install video. You will need to pull a fuse to tow your vehicle so that your battery...

  • Availability of Thule or Yakima Trunk Mount Bike Rack for 2014 Honda CR-V
  • At this time, Hollywood Racks is our only vendor offering a trunk mount rack that's compatible with the 4th Generation CR-V. A Thule or Yakima rack would need to attach to the vehicle at the top edge of the rear hatch glass, which is not capable of holding the weight without shattering the hatch glass. The Hollywood Racks 2-bike model # HRF2 or the 3-bike model # HRF2-3 mount to the vehicle a little differently, using an additional padded bar that rests on the hatch in the middle of...

  • How to Install Tow Bar Wiring in a 2014 Honda CRV
  • I looked and there isn't printed installation instructions available for either the Hopkins Tow Bar Wiring part # HM5604 or the Trailermate Harness part # TM783120. Both these harnesses install the same way. You need to locate the tail light wiring harness that plugs into the back of the light assemblies on your 2014 Honda CRV, unplug them and then plug the T-connectors of either of these connectors in line with the factory wiring and you would be good to go.

  • Fuse Bypass Switch Recommendation for a 2014 Honda CR-V
  • The correct fuse bypass switch to use on your 2014 Honda CR-V is the Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass Switch part # RM76512. I attached some flat towing FAQ articles for you to check out also. The fuses that need to be pulled from the instrument panel fuse block under the dash should be: 7.5 ACC RADIO 34 7.5 ACC KEYLOCK 20

  • Fuse Bypass to Tow a 2014 Honda CR-V Behind a Motor Home
  • Actually, fuse bypass # RM76512 is not recommended for the 2014 Honda CR-V. The correct one is # RM76511. You should only have to pull that one fuse. But you can check your vehicle owners manual to be sure. I have included a link to a video to the right showing how the fuse bypass installs. Fuse bypass # RM76512 is listed for a 2012 - 2014 Chevy Cruze.

  • Comparison Between Hidden Hitch # 90089 and Draw-Tite # 36520 for 2014 Honda CR-V
  • Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch are both sister companies that are owned by the same parent company, Cequent Performance Products. Other than the fact that the Hidden Hitch # 90089 includes a ball mount while the Draw-Tite # 36520 does not, both hitches are identical. The hitches share the same weight capacity, installation would be the same and the quality would be equal. If you'll be using the hitch for towing, go with the Hidden Hitch model as it includes the ball mount. You'll also need...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations to Carry Two Bikes With 2014 Honda CR-V
  • If you're planning on carrying two bikes, there's no reason you couldn't go with the Curt Class III hitch, part # C13119. Curt makes a quality hitch, and and you wouldn't sacrifice any quality or function by going with the less-expensive Curt model. The Swagman Trailhead 2-bike rack you mentioned, part # S63360 is the rack I most often recommend. The rack is at an excellent price point, and offers all of what I consider to be crucial features in a bike rack, like anti-sway cradles that...

  • Lightweight Bike Rack Recommendation for Transporting 3 Alternative Frame Bikes
  • The Thule Apex # TH9027 swing away function is very helpful, and as you indicated this adds to the weight of the bike rack. If you would like a lighter weight option I recommend the Thule Helium Aero 3 Bike # TH9043. This bike rack has all the same features as the Apex that you referenced, except the swing away function. It can carry up to 3 bikes The Thule Helium Aero all aluminum construction makes this bike rack very manageable with a shipping weight of 27 pounds. Which is significantly...

  • Roadmaster Base Plate Recommendation for a 2014 Honda CRV Instead of Using a Blue Ox Adapter
  • Blue Ox states that with the Blue Ox Adapter Brackets part # BX88151 you can not substitute homemade or non-typical parts to install this product otherwise it may result in injury or death, also this would void the warranty so I cannot recommend you use anything other than the included install hardware that comes with the # BX88151 when installing on your Roadmaster Sterling tow bar. I think your best option would be to use the Roadmaster Base Plate Kit # 521567-1. The removable arms...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Honda CRV
  • For a similar trunk rack to the Raceway # TH9001XT that is confirmed to fit your 2014 Honda CR-V you would want the Saris Bones part # SA805. I checked with Thule and the # TH9001PRO is not confirmed as a fit for your vehicle. You will also need the # SA3035 as it is required to replace lower hooks or place lower hooks inside trunk (details in the instruction manual) If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Honda CR-V Behind a Motor Home with a Stowmaster Tow Bar
  • The correct base plates for the 2014 Honda CR-V are # 521567-1 and they are compatible with the Stowmaster tow bar. The base plates you referenced, # 521190-1, are for a Honda Fit and would not work on your CR-V. The Honda CR-V is one of the more popular vehicles to flat tow. Just be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual for specific information on flat towing it. In addition to the base plates and tow bar you will also need safety cables, # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack for 4 Bikes on a 2014 Honda CR-V
  • First, we need to determine if your 2014 Honda CR-V has a Class I or Class II trailer hitch. It will usually say this on the hitch itself or you can go by the capacity. If the tongue weight capacity is listed at 200 pounds or less then it is a Class I trailer hitch. If it is 300 or more then it is likely a Class II. This makes all the difference in the world because a Class I trailer hitch is only rated for 2 bikes at most. A Class II trailer hitch can handle 4 bikes. A Class III hitch...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack for a 2014 Honda CR-V
  • At this time the only trunk mount bike rack listed as a fit for the 2014 Honda CR-V is the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top rack, # HRF2. This rack features an additional upper arm piece that moves the straps up and over any obstruction, such as a spoiler, so no stress is placed on the obstruction. I have included a link to a video that shows how it works. If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical mens bike would) then I...

  • Options for Carrying Two Kayaks on Roof of 2014 Honda CR-V
  • The first step would be to install crossbars on the roof of your CR-V, using the following parts: 58 inch load bars, part # THLB58 Podium foot pack, part # TH460 Vehicle specific fit kit, part # THKIT3118 The crossbars would bolt to your roof using fixed attachment points that already exist on your roof. Once the crossbars are in place, you'd then install the kayak carriers. A roller/saddle system might work better for you. For each kayak, you'd need a 1/2 HullyRoller system...

  • Availability of Large, Waterproof Cargo Bag for 2014 Honda CR-V with Factory Rails
  • I recommend the Rightline Sport 3 XL Rooftop Cargo Bag # RL100S30. This bag is waterproof to keep your cargo clean and dry and has UV ray protection. The bag has a corrosion-resistant zipper built into the underside of a protective flap to keep water out, while the flap secures shut with Velcro closures. The bag attaches to your rails using the 4 included straps. A couple things to keep in mind when using a rooftop cargo bag - first, check your owner's manual for the weight capacity...

  • Are Trailer Hitches Visible Under the Rear Bumper of a 2014 Honda CR-V
  • Hidden Hitch is just the brand name and does not necessarily describe the appearance of the hitch on the vehicle. In this case, hitch # 87621 will have the cross tube visible beneath the rear fascia on the 2014 Honda CR-V. I have included a link to a video showing a typical installation to give you an idea of what it will look like installed. All of the trailer hitches for the 2014 CR-V will fit the same way. The other thing to look at is the vehicle owners manual for the towing capacity...

  • The factory harness on your 2014 Honda CR-V will be located behind the left cargo panel in the rear of your vehicle. You will have to remove some interior panels to gain access to the factory harness. I have included a photo for you showing the location of the factory harness as well as a trailer wiring harness installation video for a 2013 Honda CR-V which you may find helpful.
