Honda CR-V Trailer Hitch Questions and Answers


  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness for 2016 Honda CR-V
  • We do indeed offer trailer hitches and trailer wiring harness options for your 2016 Honda CR-V. Since the hitches we offer for your CR-V are pretty equivalent as far as quality goes, you can go for the least expensive Hidden Hitch # 87621 and not feel like you've sacrificed anything. As far as visibility goes, as you can see in the photo I've provided, both hitches are pretty much equally visible from the rear of the car. For a trailer wiring harness, I'd recommend the # 118561...

  • Will Curt Hitch C11555 for a 2016 Honda CR-V Tow a Small Trailer
  • If the trailer weighs less than 2,000 lbs the Curt hitch part # C11555 that you referenced would be capable of towing it. This hitch has a 2,000 lb total trailer capacity and 200 lb tongue weight capacity. To complete your towing setup you would want the part # C45572 for a ball mount with a 2 inch ball or part # C45571 for a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball. For trailer wiring you would then want the Curt Harness part # C56158. I attached an install video for this plus one for the hitch as well.

  • Recommended Class III Trailer Hitch for a 4-Bike Rack on a 2016 Honda CR-V
  • Good question! First let me recommend you a hitch; I recommend the Draw-Tite # 75742 trailer hitch over the Curt # C13119, because with the Curt hitch they require you to use a stabilization strap with any non-trailer loads. These "non-trailer loads" are items like bike racks and cargo carriers etc. If you do not use a strap like the # 18050 it will void the warranty. You are correct, either one of these hitches would be sufficient in transporting a 4-bike rack and bikes to and fro....

I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. The hitch itself has a tongue weight capacity of 525 pounds but the vehicle is likely rated for 150 pounds tongue weight (confirm with the owner's manual) so you would be limited to the lower rating.

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation to Carry Woman's Bike with a 2016 Honda CR-V
  • The best way to carry a woman's bike on your 2016 Honda CR-V is with a hitch mounted bike rack since this route does not contact the painted surface of the vehicle at all and provides a more solid mount. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Roadway 2 part # TH912XTR.

  • For a Class III hitch that does not require the stabilizer strap when carrying a bike rack you would want the Hidden Hitch part # 87621.

Unfortunately, the 2011 model was the last year of the 3rd generation of the CR-V models, and your 2016 model is of the 4th generation.

The hitch itself carries a 3500 lb towing/350 lb tongue weight capacity, but these capacities will be limited by the capacities of the vehicle itself, since the capacities of your CRV are lower.

Check out the install video I attached for more info. There will be info there on how to trim the rear fascia as well. I also attached an image that shows where the trim panel will get trimmed.

  • Choosing Correct Hitch Tongue Weight Capacity for Using a 4-Bike Platform Bike Rack on Honda CR-V
  • The Curt Class III trailer hitch # C13119 does have a 350-lb tongue weight (TW) rating as you noted, and that capacity must be enough for the weight of the bike rack itself plus that of your loaded bikes. A substantial 4-bike rack like the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE # HR1400 weighs about 80-lbs all by itself. Add the bikes and you are indeed talking about a hefty load on the hitch. In your case I absolutely agree that using a higher-rated hitch like Draw-Tite # 75742 is the way to go....

  • Why are Stabilization Straps Required for Non-Trailer Loads on Some Curt Trailer Hitches
  • Curt requires that any of their hitches that are NOT rated for weight distribution use a stabilization strap # 18050 for non-trailer loads. This is to be in compliance with their warranty requirements. The strap reduces some of the stress on the hitch and where it is attached on the vehicle.

  • For your 2015 Honda CR-V the Draw Tite Hitch part # 75742 would be an excellent choice. This is a 2 inch hitch with plenty of capacity that would work well for you to carry a bike rack with. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. The Curt hitch part # C13119 would also work, but since it requires the use of a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack I wouldn't recommend it for you. The Swagman XTC2, part # S64670 is...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for an Older Travel Trailer
  • The distance between the two mounting brackets of the Curt Hitch part # 9883544 is 3-1/8 inches. It looks like it would be to big for what you are trying to do. Since none of our hitches that install on bumpers are going to fit your bumper well I believe your best choice would be a multi-fit hitch like the part # 13703. This hitch will fit trailer frames that are between 22 and 72 inches in width so it should fit yours. You are going to need a bike rack that is confirmed to work at...

  • Availability and Installation of Trailer Hitch for 2015 Honda CR-V
  • Your 2015 Honda CR-V can be fitted with any of three classes of hitch receiver, either Class I or Class II in the 1-1/4-inch size, or a Class III type that has a 2-inch receiver opening. I recommend you use a 2-inch Class III hitch like Draw-Tite # 75742 because this will provide higher capacity if you're going to tow, better safety margin and broader compatibility with a range of hitch-mount accessories like bike racks and cargo carriers. We happened to have installed this hitch in...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Honda CR-V
  • Draw Tite and Hidden Hitches are made by the same company so they are the same. All of the hitches confirmed to fit your 2015 Honda CRV will be the same distance recessed behind the rear bumper. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper measures 2 inches on all of the hitches. They all are going to be about the same in terms of visibility. The cross beams of the hitches will be in the same general area on all of the hitches so none of them would be noticeably...

  • Will a Trailer Hitch from a 2010 Honda CR-V Fit on a 2015 Honda CR-V
  • There is just one trailer hitch that fits both a 2010 Honda CR-V and a 2015 CR-V. It is Curt hitch # C11555. If you have a different hitch on your 2010 then it will not fit the 2015. I have included a link to the trailer hitches that fit a 2015 Honda CR-V for you.

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2015 Honda CR-V
  • For your 2015 Honda CR-V I would recommend the Draw Tite hitch part # 75742. This is a Class III hitch with a 2 inch opening that would work well to carry a bike rack. Since it has a 2 inch opening it will offer more flexibility for future hitch accessories/towing as more things are built for 2 inch hitches. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. My favorite bike rack that I would recommend for you would be the Thule Vertex Swing part # TH9031XT as it can carry up...

  • Recommendation For Trailer Hitch For 2014 Honda CR-V
  • 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 of several...

  • 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...

  • Parts Needed to Install a 7-Way Trailer Connector on a 2014 Honda CR-V
  • Honda did not offer a towing package with a 7-way trailer connector for the CR-V, so using a 4-way to 7-way adapter is the best option. 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 attached the installation video and instructions for you to check out. Next you will want to install a 7-way adapter. If you do not need all of the additional functions that a 7-way trailer connector...

  • 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...

  • What is Needed to Tow a Utility Trailer with a 2014 Honda CR-V
  • The first thing you should know is that the towing capacity of your 2014 Honda CR-V is likely 1500 pounds. Consult the vehicle owners manual to confirm. 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. The hitch is not just for bike racks or cargo carriers, you can tow with it, you just need to stay...

  • 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. I would say that the best way to do it would be to trim and reinstall the panel, which the installation instructions I attached to the right do detail how...

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...

  • 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,...

This hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs, you will need to consult the owners manual of the CR-V to determine what Honda recommends as the tongue weight capacity and be sure not to exceed the lower of the two figures. As long as you center the scooter on the carrier you wouldn't have to worry...

  • 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...

  • Hitch for 2014 Honda CR-V Capable of Carrying 3 or 4 Bikes
  • There are Class III hitches available for the 2014 Honda CR-V that have the 2 inch receiver opening, which would allow you to carry a 3 or 4 bike rack. There isn't a hitch with a larger receiver opening available for your CR-V. Of the available hitches, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class III hitch, part # 75742. You can see the install details and an install video by clicking the provided links. For a compatible bike rack, the Thule Hitching Post Pro, part # TH934XTR would be a high...

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.

  • Can a Class III 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Be Installed on a 2014 Honda CR-V EX-L
  • You are correct, the tongue weight and towing weight capacities of the 2014 Honda CR-V are lower than a Class III trailer hitch such as # C13119. 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...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation For 2014 Honda CR-V
  • Hitch ratings are based on the design and structure of the hitch. One hitch may fit several different make and models of vehicles so although the hitch might have a high weight capacity, the vehicle towing capacity is what you will want to go by when looking for a hitch for a vehicle. 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. For a 2014 Honda CR-V, I recommend...

Please keep in mind that though the hitch is rated for 350 pounds tongue weight and 3,500 pounds gross trailer weight, that the vehicle may not be rated as high.

Both include the required installation hardware and both will require trimming or removal of the under-body panel beneath the vehicle. In...

  • Thank you for sharing the tips for installing Curt trailer hitch # C13119 on your 2014 Honda CR-V. I know that many people prefer to leave the panel in place if at all possible. 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. But on the other hand if you do not want to be our your back any longer than you have to then removing the panel to go trim it may be a nice...

  • Which Model Years of Honda CR-V Does Curt Class III Hitch # C13119 Fit
  • The Curt Class III hitch you referenced, part # C13119 is a fit for the 4th Generation Honda CR-V, consisting of the 2012,2013 and 2014 model year. The automotive press says the 2015 CR-V is getting a 'minor facelift', but I can't yet say if the # C13119 hitch will fit the 2015 CR-V. I spoke with my contacts with the hitch manufacturers, and was told that they haven't yet completed testing to determine if the hitch fits the 2015 model.

  • Hitch and 4 Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Honda CR-V
  • Only the Curt hitches require the use of a stabilizer strap like the # 18050 when carrying a bike rack, so because of that the Hidden Hitch part # 87621 that you referenced would be your best option as it does not have the requirement and it is a fit for your 2014 Honda CR-V. I attached an install video for you to check out. This rack would work well with the Thule Hitching Post Pro part # TH934XTR. Check out the review video I attached that shows the rack demoed on a similar 2013 CR-V.
