  • Does the Rear Appearance Panel of a 2014 Honda CR-V Have to be Removed to Install Hitch
  • There are two options you have when installing the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch # 75742 like you have noticed. You can trim the panel and reinstall it or you can simply remove it. I wish the installers had decided to trim the panel and reinstall it but the customer who owned the vehicle may have requested them not reinstall it.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2011 Honda CR-V to Tow a Motorcycle on a Trailer
  • Not at all. Tongue weight is the downward forced applied at the hitch receiver. Tongue weight is typically 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. So for example if a trailer weight 2,000 pounds total including cargo then the tongue weight would be around 200 to 300 pounds. I have linked a help article to the right that shows how to determine tongue weight. However, even though the trailer hitch is rated for 350 pounds tongue weight, your 2011 Honda CR-V is rated lower, and you...

My personal recommendation would be for the Curt Class III 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver, # C13119. Going with a 2 inch hitch gives you the added benefit of having more options when it comes to hitch mounted accessories. If you plan to do any towing with your CR-V, I suggest taking a look at the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, # 118561, Draw-Tite Ball...

  • Best Way to Carry a Mobility Scooter with a 2005 Honda CR-V
  • You would not want to use an adapter to go from the 1-1/4 inch hitch to a 2 inch receiver. Doing so reduces the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. The other issue is that the tongue weight capacity of your 2005 Honda CR-V is only 150 pounds. So the combined weight of the carrier and the mobility scooter cannot exceed that 150 pound limit. The safest solution and the one that will put the least stress on the vehicle, is to tow the scooter on a small trailer...

Your best option would be a hitch mounted bike rack. If you don't have a hitch you would first need to start with one like the Curt Hitch part # 13535. See install video.

  • Maximum Towing Capacity for a 2011 Honda CRV

This is still enough to tow your 1,300 pound trailer though. For a trailer hitch I recommend a Class II hitch, # 90089. This hitch has plenty of capacity for the trailer but is also not as limited (as far as what accessories you can use) as a Class I trailer hitch. This hitch comes with a ball mount so...

Starting with a trailer hitch we have Class I, II, and III hitches available for your 2013 Honda CR-V. The most popular option is the Curt Class III hitch # C13119.

  • Will Adding Trailer Hitch Negatively Affect Steering, Braking, or Gas Mileage of 2014 Honda CR-V
  • The Curt trailer hitch # C13119 weighs about 30 pounds or so. Its affect on gas mileage would basically be non-existent. You would never notice a change. The way a person drives would have more of an effect than adding a little weight to the vehicle so no worries there. Also, given that the hitch is relatively light it isn't going to affect the handling of the vehicle at all. The weight of the hitch is not going to compress the rear suspension so the handling, braking, steering, everything,...

Since this is lower than the capacity of Curt trailer hitch # C13119 you will need to go by the lower capacity. Provided the gross trailer weight when loaded and ready to tow is under the towing capacity of the vehicle you will be fine.

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.

You will first want to install a wiring harness with a 4-way connector like part # C56158. This will provide all of the trailer light functions.

I have also included a link to the installation instructions to the right for you. If you are planning on doing any towing with the hitch, first consult the vehicle owners manual for the CR-V towing capacities. For a ball mount use # 3590.

We try to make sure each customer is aware that they need to find what the weight capacity is for their vehicle and choose the items that fall within those capacities.

You cannot use a Class I hitch for a 3-bike rack so you are on the right track selecting a tougher Class III hitch.

  • Can a Trailer Hitch be Locked to a 2011 Honda CR-V
  • You can use a hitch lock such as # 40107. Place the pin through the pin holes on the trailer hitch, put the lock on and lock it. No one will be able to take any accessories installed in the hitch. This lock is stainless steel so corrosion will not be an issue. The hitch itself is bolted to the vehicle. It does not lock but trying to steel a trailer hitch would be difficult and awkward for a would be thief. If you really wanted to lock in the bolts you could use red Loctite, # LT37420....

  • How to Carry a GoGo Elite Traveler Scooter on a 2012 Honda CR-V
  • The 2012 Honda CR-V does not have a very high tongue weight capacity. I believe it is 150 pounds but you will want to consult the owners manual to be sure. A low tongue weight capacity is not going to be able to support a scooter and lift. Even if a hitch is rated higher you still have to go by the lowest rated component in the system. Most all small vehicles are going to have this same issue. Larger SUVs and trucks can support more weight but if that is not an option for you then the...

  • Where to Attach Stabilization Strap 18050 on a 1997 Honda CR-V with a Curt Trailer Hitch
  • This is a common issue that customer run into on certain Curt hitches. The strap is supposed to relieve some of the stress on the hitch when using things like bike racks or cargo carriers. It would be a better idea to attach the hook end on the vehicle to metal. If you were going to attach strap # 18050 to glass I strongly recommend using something like # Y02623. The bone shaped part will get wedged inside the vehicle and disburse the weight better on the glass. If you could, place the...

Provided that there is nothing on the other side of the panel that could get damaged it is certainly feasible to mask then cut with the panel in place like you have done.

In this situation you always go with the lower rated component, in this case the vehicle. Despite the difference in capacities I still recommend a Class III trailer hitch because it has a 2 inch receiver. A 2 inch receiver will have more accessory options than a Class II trailer hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver would. It is also a sturdier...
