Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (54 Customer Reviews)

This fully welded trailer hitch receiver bolts onto your vehicle's frame with no welding required. Powder coated steel is sturdy and corrosion resistant.


The fit was perfect and I was able to install it in my driveway by myself without the use of a jack or auto/wheel ramps. I am sure it looked hysterical - but it worked like a charm. I did see another unit on sale well below your offering - but I had already ordered it. I only cringed a little because I was happy with your quality and the install went smoothly because I watched the installation videos that you posted on you tube. If your interested on how I did it all by myself next time you are in Temecula, stop by and I will spill the beans over a cold beer.


Estoy muy satisfecho,por la rapidez y gran comunicación que han tenido conmigo es la primera vez que compro en esta compañía ,el producto es de gran calidad y fácil instalación la recomendaré con amigos y familiares


The trailer hitch was delivered undamaged. I had a Curt Trailer on my previous car so I know it is well built and will fit on my Acura MDX. The OEM trailer hitch sits 3 inches higher so it requires a new lower rear bumper panel. The Curt design has the hitch below the rear bumper so all I have to do is bolt it on. No other mods required.

2023 Honda Pilot

Very fast shipping. Hitch has good finish and fits well. Hands free rear hatch still works after installation.

Only problem so far is the spare tire no longer easily fits and is at a bit of an angle. Slightly deflating it would probably solve the problem.

Honda Pilot

Perfect fit for my 2024 Honda Pilot Touring and is easy to install, shipping was fast.


Works perfect for bike hitch which is what I wanted it for. The auto tail lift gate feature where you swipe your foot under the bumper seems to still work although I don’t really use this much. I mention this as other reviews said it wouldn’t.

2023 Honda Pilot

Fits perfectly 5 minutes instillation.

Honda Pilot

Hitch came on time and went on in about 30 minutes on my 2023 Honda Pilot. Didn’t even need to drop the spare tire.


Was so easy to order. Received it in quickly always being updated all the time. The install was so easy it took literally 30 minutes. Thank you ETrailer


Took me 1 1/2 hrs to install. Used bucket and a board. Needed a step ladder to help me up after install. I’m 87 years old. Suggest ladder for older installers I have a real sense of accomplishment


Hi. The trailer hitch is great, except for one problem. I night this for my 2022 Acura MDX, and it would not fit without removing the sensor that is mounted inside the rear bumper. This is the sensor that opens the rear hatch when your foot is under the bumper. Even after removing, the hitch was pressing right against the bumper.


A bit of challenging to mount, holes are not lined up. Had to force it a bit to match the holes. No pin included.


Fit was perfect and install took less than 1 hour. You do need 2 people to hold it up. It does interfere with the Hands Free Assist for the rear hatch on a 23 Pilot. Only negative was that UPS just about destroyed the box during shipping, which scuffed it up just a bit.


Great service

2022 Acura MDX

Excellent service, excellent product, excellent experience overall !!!


great hitch & easy to install ... would definitely recommend

Acura MDX

Installation on my 2022 MDX was a breeze. No cutting or drilling holes required. Just lower the spare tire, position rack in place and secure with the 6x included bolts. Having someone hold the hitch while I secure it with my impact gun made quick work of the install. Be sure to torque to proper specs afterwards.

I compared this Curt hitch to the OEM Acura hitch and went with Curt because it was cheaper and doesn't require me to get a new hitch trim for the lower bumper. OEM one is good if you decide to install the towing harness but since I'm just using this to attach bike racks, don't have a need for that. The curt hitch sits below the factory bumper so the towing point is about 3 inches lower than factory hitch location.


First hitch did not fit due to being a brand new model. Their customer service was very prompt to solve the problem. Ordered a different one that fit perfectly. They sent paperwork to return the first one no questions asked. Great customer service.

2023 Acura MDX

Quick shipment and great price!


High quality hitch and it was relatively easy to install with the right tools.


Fits perfectly 20 minutes installation

2022 Acura MDX

The hitch sticks out too much. Also the item is non refundable if you bolt it on to vehicle. So lost my money for this


Fit perfectly and hardware was supplied.


Delivery was less than a week. Hitch is a hitch. I installed the hitch in 30 minutes


Excellent fitment with zero modification needed. extremely fast shipping.

  • Will Curt Class III C22HR Hitch for 2022 Acura MDX Interfere with Hands-Free Liftgate Feature
    Curt Manufacturing lists the # C22HR Class III hitch as a fit for all models of the 2022 Acura MDX. Installation will not require removing the bumper cover. If your spare tire is mounted to a wheel larger than 18 inches in diameter, the spare will no longer fit under the vehicle with the hitch installed. Curt doesn't have any specific information regarding interference with the hands-free liftgate feature, but what will typically happen is that the sensors will be blocked by the receiver...

  • Hitch Receiver for a 2022 Acura MDX Type S
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" item # C22HR you referenced fits the 2022 Acura MDX regardless of the size of the spare tire. The issue with yours is that the 21 inch wheel will not be able to be remounted after the hitch is installed. You'll have to find another place to store it or go without. I am not sure what exhaust you have so I wouldn't be able to confirm it fits or doesn't without some more specific information but there is nothing in the directions...

  • Trailer Hitch Confirmed to Fit a 2024 Acura MDX to Use a Hitch Mounted Bike Rack

  • Does Install of Curt Hitch for 2024 Honda Pilot Touring Require Honda Panels
    The Curt hitch part # C22HR that you referenced hangs below the rear bumper of your 2024 Honda Pilot Touring so it would not require any additional panels, Pete.

  • Is Curt Trailer Hitch C22HR For 2022 Acura MDX The Same as Part 13742
    Yes the two parts are indeed the same; the 13742 is the same as the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C22HR. The part # C22HR is simply our part number for this hitch, but is the same and is a confirmed fit for your 2022 Acura MDX. This is a really nice option for a hitch for your MDX with a super easy installation; you'll only have to lower your spare tire, lift the hitch into position and bolt it on, then raise your spare tire back up again and that's that.

  • Does Curt Hitch for 2024 Honda Pilot Allow Hands Free Liftgate to Still Function
    The Curt hitch part # C22HR that fits your 2024 Honda Pilot Elite can still allow your hands free liftgate to function but you would need to relocate the sensor and then kick to either side of the hitch opening. This is what our customers who bought this hitch have came back and told us worked.

  • Hitch for 2022 Acura MDX for Carrying Bike Rack for 2 inch Hitch
    The only hitch options we have for your 2022 Acura MDX like the Curt # C22HR that you referenced can only fit with a mini spare. So best option would be to use this hitch and then see if you track down a mini spare from an Acura dealer. This will work great with a bike rack for a 2 inch hitch and would not prevent your hands free liftgate from working either. At worst you might have to kick to either side of the hitch opening to get it to activate.

  • 2022 Aura MDX Trailer Hitch Receiver
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C22HR is made specifically for the 2022 Acura MDX. The height of the top opening will vary from different trim levels as they have different panels that change the appearance and heights. If your spare is larger than an 18" wheel then your spare and the standard wheel will not fit under the back of your MDX with the hitch installed. You may or may not require the Hands Free relocation kit that Acura Sells for your MDX. It hasn't been confirmed to work...

  • What is 18 Inch Spare Referring to on Curt Trailer Hitch For 2022 Acura MDX
    So the 18 inches that is being referred to here is actually the diameter of the wheel/rim, as opposed to the diameter of the actual tire itself. I know that can be confusing but for whatever reason that's how manufacturers define it, so what you'll want to do is measure the diameter of the wheel on your 2022 Acura MDX, and I'm guessing, based on your 24 inch measurement of the tire, you very likely have an 18 inch or or smaller diameter wheel. If so, you will be able to leave the spare...

  • Will The Hitch From A 2012 Acura MDX Fit A 2023 Model And If Not What Will
    We do have a trailer hitch that will fit your 2023 Acura MDX. Although the Curt # 13354 hitch from your 2012 MDX will not fit the 2023 models. For your 2023 I recommend the Curt class 3 hitch # C22HR. This will be fairly easy to install as far as hitches go. It is really just 3 bolts on each side and you are done. You will want to remove the spare tire temporarily to free up space during install. Please note that while the mini spare tire will still fit underneath with the hitch installed,...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2023 Acura MDX

I attached an install video link on this page for you to check out for more info on how it installs. Then for trailer wiring you would need the Curt kit part # C59236 which is a universal style that splices to the taillight wiring of the vehicle.

  • Will The Hands Free Lift Gate Operate With Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver On a 2023 Acura MDX?
    Yes, you will still be able to use your hands free lift gate with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C22HR installed on your 2023 Acura MDX. The sensor is offset from the factory as they designed it to work with the factory receiver as well. I recommend installing the Vehicle Wiring Harness # C59236 when you install the receiver. This is a custom fit wiring harness which will use the factory connectors to install on your 2023 Acura MDX.

  • Which Trailer Hitch Will Work With a Full-Size Spare On A 2022 Acura MDX?
    Unfortunately, none of the hitches we carry for your Acura MDX is going to work with your full size spare tire. You can still use a hitch like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C22HR you'd just have to remove the spare and won't be able to re-install it. Seeing as though that isn't really the best option, I recommend instead getting rid of your hitch bike rack and get a trunk mounted rack instead. Something like the Malone Hanger Trunk Bike Rack for 3 Bikes # MPG2139 would work great...

The only spare tires that will not fit are those that use a wheel larger than 18". Since your tires have a 20" outside diameter it is pretty likely that they are on a wheel that is 18" or smaller.

  • Is Mounting Bracket Needed For Curt 4-Way on 2024 Honda Pilot
    Thanks for the purchases Cathy, and the quick answer is nope, a mounting bracket is not needed at all for your 2024 Honda Pilot for the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # C48ZV. Pretty simple reason why is the # C48ZV will actually mount right in the rear storage area/hatch of your '24 Pilot and you'll only take it out of there when you want to use the 4-way. I like the fact it stores in the hitch because the 4-way will stay cleaner and won't get...

I have linked an installation video below so you can see what all is involved with the installation of this receiver.
