Easy to install and fitted perfectly into my 2007 CRV per instructed. I used to pull a tilt 5X8 trailer to transport my yard waste to nearby landfill. Price is right and fast delivered under good packaging. 569635

I installed this hitch it was super easy to do it by yourself looks good on my SUVthe shipping time was amazing I ordered it on a Tuesday night and got it Thursday morning with standard shipping my buddy got his trailer hitch at U Haul and spent $400 on it and I spent half that and got a heavier duty hitch and it looks better the only difference is Uhaul installed it for him but I recommend this hitch very much so easy to install quality and very sturdy equipment they also keep you posted with the shipping and everything quick acknowledgement of purchase as well 200864

Hey Matt,Im thinking about getting the hitch for my 2008 Honda CRV. Im thinking about self installing myself, but Im not sure about what the guy meant in the video when he said torque to specs?

Torque to Specs indicates that your should toque the hardware to the specifications as listed in the installation instructions.

I'm very happy with this hitch. I think it looks better than the Hidden Hitch. By the way, Hidden Hitch is the same as U-Haul, Draw-Tite, and Reese hitches. To my eye, the Hidden Hitch appears to hang lower and looks more awkward. I unnecessarily jacked up both rear wheels before installing the hitch. It added time and actually made the installation more difficult because I had to lift the hitch higher. Even so the whole installation took 45 minutes. The hitch is heavy and it would be nice to have a helper. I used a short 2x4 to support one end while starting bolts on the other end. The only other difficult part was reinstalling the muffler hanger - not difficult if you do it right, but it took several tries to get it right. etrailer's shipping box is not sturdy. UPS added a lot of tape but the hitch still was poking out a large hole. No damage to the hitch though - it's very sturdy and hard to damage. 32683

Installed in about 40 minutes, as advertised. No jacks, no extra set of hands. The install video was spot on. Not much of a tool guy, so my standard socket set didn't include the required 17mm and 11/16 sockets. Quick trip to Lowe's. The only "con" - the hole for the hitch receiver pin is too close to the horizontal tube. My Yakima bike rack included an anti-rattle receiver bolt lock that hits the tube and prevented me from threading the bolt. Three options - order hitch #87440 instead. Use a standard pin. Or order a low profile threaded replacement bolt #Y8890200. I went with the latter. Works perfectly. 131123

Just what I needed. Had to chase the treads with a tap. Wire brushing just wasn't adequate. Great job on your website and the videos on the electrical hookup hardware was very helpful. I actually purchased a different one than i had in the shopping cart after watching the video. Thanks Ken 682415

Overall, a very good product. Shipping was quick and it arrived in good shape. When installing, I had to loosely insert the two bolts in the larger end, then apply significant lateral force to line up the two at the other end. The U-bolt holes were just a bit off, so the nuts do not tighten down flat against the plate. I'll check them occasionally to make sure they stay secure. 568168


Comments
I spoke with my contact in the Tech Services department at Curt, who tells me that they see this occasionally on that generation CR-V. The trick is to loosen the side bolts to provide yourself a little wiggle room. They you should be able to properly torque the u-bolt. Then, tighten the side bolts.

Watched the installation video. Drove the rear of the CRV up onto ramps for better access. Bought the bottle brush, part no. 814092, to clean the CRV's frame threads. Used the brush and penetrating spray oil to clean the frame threads. Check-fit the hitch, part no. 13555, frame bolts and all was good. Lubed the muffler hangers and they popped off easily. With a helper, lifted hitch into position and ran in all bolts. Torqued bolts to spec. Less than 30 min of work, start to finish. Hitch, fasteners, wire harness ,and brush all in one box. I plan to install the wire harness, part no. 118427, on a cooler day. As usual, etrailer gets it right every time. This is my third hitch purchase from etrailer. Note: The shipping box was a bit battered and parts of the hitch had broken through the cardboard. Etrailer should add more cardboard around the hitch for better protection as some paint was scuffed off of the hitch. 41755

I got this so I could haul bikes to and from the trails. This is a perfect fit for my 2010 CR-V and was easy to install. It’s good to check out the holes under your vehicle first and make sure they are clean and not super rusted, otherwise you’ll have to put a bit more work in. 864949

So easy to install! 1/2 hour on the ground without ramps or a lift. Customer forgot to leave her keys, so rather than wait for her to get home to call her to return with keys, my shop man went to work on the car where it was parked. Had the hitch on before the lady returned with keys. Hitch arrived as promised. Thanks for the great service and fine products! 853903

My review covers three aspects: The produce itself, the installation guide, and the installation process. 1. The trailer receiver itself is excellent. Built to last and a good price, and once installed, securely anchored to my 2009 Honda CRV. 2. The printed instructions are quite poor. They are printed on a single black and white piece of paper and are quite small and hard to read. Thankfully etrailer.com provides many informative installation videos which really made the difference. 3. The installation process was extremely difficult on my car. This is likely more about my car and shouldn't reflect poorly on the product itself so I include it here for information. My car is 2009 and lived through a couple winters out east. The frame is in good condition, but the attachment holes in the frame are unsealed, and there was significant corrosion and debris accumulation in the threaded holes. I had to aggressively clean the holes and rechase the threads, quite beyond what I think most DIYers would be interested in doing. For this trailer and this car, you must also lower the muffler, which can be done with hand tools. Final tool list to install: 1. A variety of socket wrenches and torque wrenches, and no, pliers aren't sufficient 2. crowbar (for undoing the muffler attachments) 3. WD-40, to loosen muffler hangers and clean threaded holes. 4. Tap (Please note, the frame holes are M10x1. 5 (coarse) thread, not M10x1.25 (fine) thread. 849849

I purchased hey Kurt hitch for our 2007 Honda CRV about a month ago. I understand that covid is having an effect on warehousing and shipping times across all industries and this order was no exception. However etrailer provided a website and email updates that would allow me to track my order and I happily watch does it travel across the country and drive down on doorstep yesterday. Yesterday evening I got under our car and proceeded to follow the simple YouTube tutorial daddy trailer has for this particular hitch. I'm very happy to report that this hitch is built to exacting standards and it fit like a glove. From start to finish it took me about 20 minutes to install. The hitch itself is very well built and good looking. There were no scratches on the hitch, just just a little bit of dust from sitting in storage. When we saw this car and buy our next car I will absolutely buy another hitch from etrailer. 818300

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch

  • Hitch Mounting Bolts Wont Start on Curt Class III 13555 on 2007 Honda CR-V
    The mounting bolts that attach the hitch into the nuts welded into the frame members should be 10mm. I can make a pretty good guess about what you have going on. Vehicles that are more than a couple of years old can get road grunge and corrosion built up into those nuts welded on the frame. If you live in a climate where ice and snow melting chemicals are used in the winter, this problem is more common. Needless to say, this makes it difficult if not impossible to get those bolts started....

  • Recommendation for Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2011 Honda CR-V
    A Class II hitch would use a 1-1/4 inch receiver, for a 2 inch receiver tube you'd want a Class III hitch. We offer two US Made Class III hitches that I'd recommend, the # 13555 from Curt or the # 306-X7291 from EcoHitch. Both hitches share the same 350 lb tongue weight/3500 lb gross trailer weight capacity. The primary difference between the two is that the EcoHitch model installs so the majority of the hitch is concealed behind the bumper and fascia so only the receiver tube and the...

  • Parts Needed to Tow Motorcycle Trailer with 2017 Nissan Sentra
    I have a solution for you, but the Curt # 13555 is designed to fit on mid 2000s Honda CR-V's and not the 2017 Nissan Sentra, so you wouldn't be able to use that hitch. Instead, I recommend using the Curt # C11349 which is a confirmed fit on your vehicle. The Curt hitches tend to have a more durable powder coating on them to some of the other available hitches so it will hold up much better to rust and corrosion. In order to tow with your 2017 Nissan Sentra you will also need a wiring...

  • Brake Controller and 7-Way Trailer Connector Recommendation for 2008 Honda CR-V

This is part of the formula you will use to find the correct ball mount, with the other being the height from the trailer coupler to the ground - the difference will be the rise or drop you need (if the coupler is higher you need that amount of drop; if the receiver is higher you need that amount of rise).

  • 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...

  • Is it Better for a Trailer to Be Slightly Nose High or Nose Low When Picking Out Ball Mount
    Getting the trailer as close to level as you have should be just fine. If your only options are to be a tiny bit too high or a tiny bit too low I usually recommend going on the high side since most likely the suspension will compress slightly from the weight of the tongue weight and it will get very close to level.

    Since the goal when picking out the correct rise/drop ball mount is to tow the trailer as level as possible you would want to compensate for sag like you mentioned. 3 inches of sag is quite a bit but you'd need to factor it in when towing if that's what you are experiencing. To combat the sag a great option is the Timbern kit part # TDR1500DS which will fit your 2017 Ram 1500 as long as you don't have factory air suspension.
