Honda CR-V Trailer Hitch Questions and Answers


  • Trimming the Appearance Panel to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2014 Honda CR-V
  • When installing a trailer hitch on a 2014 Honda CR-V the appearance panel can be trimmed or removed. I have linked a video that does show the panel being trimmed. The instructions do show exactly where the panel needs to be trimmed. I have included that picture. The shaded area is the area that needs to be trimmed. The issue is that there can be slight variances amongst vehicles so you would use it as a guide. The picture is indicating you need to measure 17 inches over from that one poin

  • The Curt Class III Trailer Hitch, # C13119, will hold a power wheel chair that weighs 250 lbs as long as the wheel chair carrier does not weigh more than 100 lbs. This trailer hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs which is the maximum weight it can hold when hauling a wheel chair and carrier. Another factor that you will want to consider is the tongue weight capacity of your vehicle. This trailer hitch was designed to fit the Honda CR-V years 2012 to 2014. I recommend checking your o

  • Installation of Curt Trailer Hitch on a 2005 Honda CR-V with Wires Blocking a Mounting Hole
  • Anything that is in the way of the hitch mounting side brackets and/or the hardware to mount the hitch would have to be moved out of the way. You would have to pull the wiring harness you see back towards the front of the vehicle and out of that hole using something like fish tape or a straightened wire hanger. Then re-route it so that it is not in the way. I have linked a video showing an installation of Curt hitch # 13535 on a 2006 CR-V and the process will be the same, minus the wires you

  • Will Curt Ball Mount D-28 Work w/2 Inch Ball 63845 on 2005 Honda CR-V w/Curt Class III Trailer Hitch
  • The first thing you are going to want to look at is the gross trailer weight capacity of your 2005 Honda CR-V. It has been our experience that the vehicle is only rated for 1,500 pounds gross trailer weight and 100 to 150 pounds tongue weight. Check the owners manual to confirm the capacities of the vehicle. The ball mount # D-28 and 2 inch ball # 63845 will work just fine together and with the Curt trailer hitch # 13535 you have on your CR-V. The anti-rattle device and lock you already have,

  • The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 24790 that you referenced will fit your 2001 Honda CR-V, however, the largest cargo carrier available for a Class I rated hitch is the Curt # C18140. This carrier measures 20W x 48L inches. At this time there is not a folding carrier that will fit a Class I rated hitch for your CR-V with the spare tire.

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.

  • What is the Towing Capacity of a 2013 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 and clip, ball, a

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Honda CR-V to Use with a Thule Hitching Post Bike Rack
  • The old Thule Hitching Post 958 is best used in a Class II trailer hitch because a Class I hitch has such a low capacity and you are limited to 2 bikes. To get the most out of the rack and for the safest option, use the 2013 CR-V with the Class II trailer hitch. If you are not going to tow anything with the hitch then I recommend the Draw-Tite hitch # 36520 because it includes just the hitch and installation hardware.

  • When installing any trailer hitch you would have to use all attachment points specified in the instructions. So if you wanted a higher capacity hitch like # 13314 you would have to have that center tow loop welded back onto the vehicle. You will want to consult the vehicle owners manual regarding the towing capacity.

There are many bike rack options for 1-1/4 inch trailer hitches that hold 4 bikes. The issue is that on a Class I trailer hitch, the maximum amount of bikes you can carry would be 2.

Check the owners manual on your CR-V because I believe that the towing capacity of the vehicle is 1,500 pounds and it is important that you stay under that.

One way around cutting the underbody panel would be to completely remove the underbody panel and then replace the panel when the lease is up.

The vehicle tongue weight capacity is what you will need to go by, even if the hitch is rated higher. In this case, if the hitches you are interested both exceed the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle, there is no advantage to going with the higher of the two.

The tongue weight difference of 350 lbs for the Curt and 525 lbs for the Draw-Tite would be one of the biggest differences.
