Excellent hitch and instructions. Fairly easy to install on my 2012 Honda Accord. Selected this hitch because it keeps the factory plastic trunk cover while the Draw-tite hitch discards this cover. Instructions were perfect, including dimensions for cut outs in the plastic trunk cover and aluminum heat shield. Found a good method for installing the hitch and plastic cover alone. Used a 1" wide canoe tie-down strap threaded through the car towing hook and corresponding slots in the hitch. Lifted both parts and tightened the strap, holding the hitch and cover in the raised position. Next installed the left and right bolts, easy with the weight carried by the strap. Finally removed the strap and installed the U bolt. 427332

I installed this myself on the back of my 2009 Honda Accord Coupe. I would say this it is somewhat difficult to install, due to having to slightly widen holes to fit the bolt holds through. Though, despite the slight difficulty, it only took me about 45-60 min to complete. I used this to tow a 5x8 trailer loaded to its full capacity 1800 miles from Indiana to Florida and it has definitely met my expectations. It remained completely rigid throughout the journey despite having been put under a lot of stress, between steep hilly highways and pothole torn streets. I also purchased a 2” Rise: And the corresponding wiring harness: Though I would instead recommend a 2-½” - 3” rise, especially if you have a heavily loaded trailer as I did, as the 2” rise was a little low. I would recommend this to anybody looking to tow anything with their Honda Accord due to its rigid construction and sleek design. 524468

Just mounted it, but haven't towed anything yet. I don't understand why the hardware is just a hair wider than the factory hole on my Accord, I have to use a filer to remove a little bit of material from the frame to put it on. Other than that, this product is great. Feel solid and easy to install. 508342

I bought this trailer hitch because it's a platform tilt away design. I did not want to take away the space I could have in my roof. It's easy to set up and use everyday. Purchasing the locks (sold separately) is definitely a good investment. 802713

Great website. Great price. Great instructional video that anyone can follow. Great shipping time and packaging. Great components. This can be done on the ground with no lift. It isn’t as easy as a lift, but it can be done with the Accord’s clearance. It can also be done with one person, but I would not recommend it. From a difficulty standpoint , enlarging the entrance hole for the rectangular bracket that secures the carriage bolt might prove to be difficult for some without proper tools. It only needs to be filed just a little for it to go through securely, so you should have something in your toolbox or shed to accomplish this. So far, I’m very happy with everything and hides well until I’m ready to utilize it. Thanks ! 551389

  • Availability of Trailer Hitch for 2009 Honda Accord to Allow Use of 2-inch Hitch Bike Rack
    The size and class of hitch available for your 2009 Honda Accord is a 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch such as Curt # C11085 and Draw-Tite # 24899. No 2-inch hitches are made for your car because its frame is not strong enough for the weight ratings of a 2-inch Class III hitch. As you noted, there are adapters like the Brophy # HTAD and # HT5R that fit your 1-1/4-inch hitch and provide a 2-inch receiver opening for the 2-inch accessory. These are both about 7-inches long, a good bit shorter...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2010 Honda Accord Sedan
    Both hitches are a confirmed fit for your Accord. The only difference between the two hitches you mentioned, the # C11085 and the # C11496 is that the # C11085 fits against the underside of the vehicle more cleanly. It wraps around the spare tire well, rather than passing under it like the # C11496 does. This also allows the receiver tube to sit closer to the underside of the bumper. This would give you a very slight advantage in ground clearance. Also, the # C11085 is a few dollars less...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2011 Honda Accord Sedan
    The hitch we have available for your Accord is a Class I hitch, Draw-Tite Class I hitch, part # 24899. The Draw-Tite does not require using stabilizing straps to retain warranty protection like the Curt hitches, so no worries there. If you'll be towing, you'll also need the # 118420 trailer wiring harness, a ball mount and a 1-7/8 inch trailer ball, part # 19256 or a 2 inch ball # 19258. None of the hitch manufacturers we do business with offer a 2 inch hitch for a Honda Accord. The...

  • What Hitch is Going to fit a 2009 Honda Accord Coupe for Towing a U-Haul?
    In order to safely tow with your 2009 Honda Accord, there are a number of parts you will need. The Curt hitch # C11085 is a class I hitch with a maximum gross trailer weight of 2,000 lbs and a maximum tongue weight of 200 lbs. However, according to the owner's manual, your maximum towing capacity is 1,000 lbs, which is the number you will need to abide by. I took a look at U-Haul 5 x 8 trailers and it seems that their empty weight is 900 lbs, leaving you with little room to haul cargo....

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for 2012 Acura TSX
    The trailer hitches that are designed for the 2012 Acura TSX are all Class I hitches. This is most likely because this vehicle is not rated to support the heavier loads that a Class II or greater hitch is capable of towing. Since you have a Sport Wagon model, the only confirmed trailer hitch to fit your vehicle is the Curt Class I Round Tube Receiver Hitch # C11085. This has a 200 pound tongue weight and 2,000 pound towing weight capacity. This is a custom fit hitch for your vehicle,...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation For 2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon
    In my research of your 2011 Acura TXS Sport Wagon, I found the towing weight capacity of your vehicle is 1,000 lbs. Tongue weight is about 10 percent of the towing weight capacity so that would explain why your vehicle has a hitch available with a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. The hitch we offer for your TSX is the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C11085. It does have a receiver opening of 1-1/4 inches. All non-trailer loads - bike racks, cargo carriers and so forth - should be supported with...

Then you simply need to add the hitch ball like # A-82 for a 2 inch option or # A-80 for a 1-7/8 inch diameter option. Then for your trailer wiring, I recommend the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # C55502. This custom-fit T-connector plugs into your...

  • Is Ground Clearance on a 2008 Honda Accord Lost with Hitch Installation
    The ground clearance you would have on your 2008 Honda Accord would be right at the same amount that you currently have as the hitch will hang right at the same height as your 2008 Honda Accord. I attached a couple pictures that show the relative height of the two. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well. From the top of the hitch opening down to the ground measures 11-1/2 inches.

  • Curt Trailer Hitch vs Draw Tite Trialer Hitch Appearance for a 2009 Honda Accord V6 Sedan
    All of the trailer hitches available for the Accord will position the receiver at approximately the same point at the rear of the vehicle. The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 24899 will have the advantage, appearance wise, since the cross member of the hitch angles toward the front of the vehicle. If the Accord were my vehicle, I would select the Draw-Tite hitch, item # 24899. The reason I would select this hitch is because it would be the least visible.

  • What Prevents Kuat Transfer Bike Rack From Moving Around in Trailer Hitch
    Your current Kuat Transfer part # TS02G has anti-rattle device built into it that maybe you aren't fully utilizing. When you install the hitch pin of the rack how tight are you getting the bolt that holds it to the hitch? It's designed to be tightened so much that it removes movement when travelling. Support straps and a different hitch won't solve this issue. The Kuat NV base part # BA22B does have tighter clearances and also has a different anti-rattle device so it will be quieter though.
