2006 Honda Element

I bought a hitch receiver and the electrical harness from The products were delivered promptly without any additional delivery charges. My mechanic told me both products were fairly easy to install.

This purchase and install went as perfectly as possible. Great website, easy ordering, and fast shipping. The directions were clear and it took me about 30 minutes max to install it. I was so pleased to find a "fish wire" in the install kit! I notched the frame on my Honda Element with a small round hand rasp and then followed the directions. Thanks!

Just a follow up, its been just over a year and the hitch is perfect. I use it for light duty towing of a boat and for a 4-bike rack. Very happy with my purchase!

I purchased this for my 2007 Honda Element LX. Very easy to install. It took about 20 minutes total. I recommend using a drill bit file instead of drilling holes to enlarge the hole to mount the hitch - because the hole doesn't really need to be enlarged that much more. I also suggest watching the Youtube video as this helped to better understand how the unit is to be installed. I highly recommend this product and company as they quality, value and service were outstanding.

My poor planning the last few days has given me cause to talk to three different salespeople at etrailer. First, I talked to Yvonne and she was superb, then I talked to Lisa and her assistance was classy and very helpful, then I talked to Karen and she was also terrific. This day and age this is more than was expected and I am very impressed with these three people. I want your organization to know that all three represent you in an impressive light. My experience was more than positive in all respects. I am now a customer for life. Congratulations on your ability to hire well! With respect, Bill Hollenbeck

The towbar fit perfectly on my Honda Element. Just as sturdy as towbar on durango. Very well made, fantastic price, EXTREMELY fast shipping. Thank you very much

Installed onto my 2006 Honda Element in 10 minutes. It looks good and it will work just fine. It was easier installing this hitch than giving my dog a bath.

The hitch has served me well. Happy with my purchase.

  • Hitch with Best Ground Clearance for a 2008 Honda Element EX
    For your 2008 Honda Element EX I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75659 because it will provide the best ground clearance out of the available hitch options. The top of the receiver will basically be right below the bottom of the rear fascia on the vehicle. I have linked a video review showing an example installation of this hitch for you. In the video, which is on an older Element, the distance from the ground to the top of the receiver opening is 13-1/2 inches. That means from the...

  • Will Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch 75659 Be Able To Replace Class I Hitch On 2008 Honda Element?
    The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75659 you mentioned is confirmed to fit your 2008 Honda Element EX and will be perfect for replacing your class I trailer hitch receiver. As you mentioned the # 75659 is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver that is great due to it having the most available accessories such as bike racks, cargo carriers, and ball mounts for towing a trailer. Draw-Tite and Curt hitches are both equally built with no clear advantage going to one or the other. It more...

  • Replacement Installation Hardware for Valley Hitch 82580 for 2005 Honda Element
    You are correct that Valley did go out of business. But since we do offer other hitch brands for your 2005 Honda Element you can use a hardware kit for one of those hitch products. You will want to verify the size of the hitch receiver opening; it will be either a 1-1/4-inch Class I or a 2-inch Class III size hitch. You need to use hardware for the class of hitch you have to ensure it has the required capacity. All currently-available hitches for your car are shown on the linked page. What...

  • Using Curt Class I Trailer Hitch for Bike Rack on a 2007 Honda Element Ex
    I do believe that you are correct in that the Curt Trailer Hitch # C11700 will be a much more solid fit on your 2007 Honda Element since it installs using the vehicle frame and the tow hook as opposed to the Draw-Tite # 24720 which uses the trunk pan and tow hook. #1 - From the crosstube of the Curt hitch to the hitch pin hole is about 2-1/2" (63.5 mm) so you will have plenty of room for the shank of the Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack for 1-1/4" Hitches # Y02445.

  • Can an Adjustable Ball Mount Be Used on a 2008 Honda Element
    We sell trailer hitches for your 2008 Honda Element like the Curt # C11700 but I am thinking you are actually looking for a ball mount for the hitch you have installed on your vehicle. Since you have a 1-1/4 inch hitch the only ball mount we can recommend is the one the hitch manufacturer recommends. For example, the Curt would require the # C45521 with either the 2 inch ball # A-82 or 1-7/8 inch ball # A-80. Now you do have the option of replacing your hitch with a 2 inch hitch like...

  • Hitch Fit for 2007 Honda Element SC
    If you're wanting a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver, you'll want to go with the Curt # C11699 for a 2007 Honda Element SC, as the # C11700 isn't a fit for the SC model. This being said, I'd recommend going with a Class III hitch with the 2 inch receiver opening, like part # 75659. The 2 inch receiver is much more common, and there are a lot more available accessory options for the 2 inch receiver such as cargo carriers or bike racks. The price differential between the 1-1/4 inch...
