Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2016 Honda CR-V - Curt

Today on our 2016 Honda CRV, we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Curt Custom Fit Class III trailer hitch receiver. This offers the two inch by two inch opening. Its part number is C13119. All right, Here's what our hitch is going to look like installed. Really nice, clean look. You can see our cross tube is going to tuck in. It's going to go in up to its mounting location, and it's going to come all the way across here, kind of beefing up the look of the back of the vehicle. This is the two inch by two inch receiver tube opening.

It's considered a Class III. You can see our reinforcement collar around the end here; it's nice and flush. And if we're to follow that line straight up, it's going to be tucked just inside the back edge of the bumper. That makes it easy to get to as far as attaching accessories and stuff go, but you're not going to have to worry about banging your shin on it or anything like that. The plate's going to come all the way across the bottom, and that's going to give us our safety chain connection points on each side.

You should have plenty of room to get whatever type of chain that you require connected there. It's also going to offer us a five eighths diameter pinhole location. Now that's going to be for Class III accessories- anything rated Class III. Looks like we're going to have room there to make that work, whether it's a pin and clip, locking hitch pin, or maybe an anti-rattle device. When it comes to the towing, the hitch is going to have a three hundred and fifty pound ton weight rating; that's the maximum downward force we can put here on our receiver tube opening. It also carries a thirty-five hundred pound gross trailer weight rating; that's the total weight of our trailer and anything that we've got loaded up on it.

Now for non-wheeled loads, something other than trailers and stuff like that, Curt does recommend the use of a stabilization strap. Of course we do want to look into the owner's manual of the CRV as well and see what it is rated for, and then we can go off of whichever of those numbers are the lowest. Now a couple of measurements that you'll find helpful when selecting ball mounts, bike racks, or even hitch cargo carriers will be from the ground to the inside top edge of our receiver tube opening. We've got about fourteen and three quarters of an inch. Then from the center of our hitch pin hole to our outermost edge of our bumper is about two. Now the first thing we're going to have to take care of for the installation is removing our under body panel here. We've got a couple fasteners across the back; these are going to be push-pin fasteners.

Just going to pop out the center section of them, and the rest of it will come. Then there's going to be the one right over here. There's going to be another push-pin fastener right here in the center section. Now with the five of those removed, we'll come here closer to the front of the panel, and we need to remove the three, ten millimeter bolts. There's also going to be a Phillips screw here in the driver side wheel well located closer to the outside of the vehicle, and also one a little bit closer to the inside. Now we're going to use the tow hook cutout right here in the middle to give us a guide for where we need to cut the under body panel here. I'm going to measure over sixteen and a half inches. Then from there, we can go over three and a quarter. From our mounting hole, we want to go toward the rear of the vehicle by an inch and a half, and then we can go seven inches from there. Now to make our cut, we'll just use a nice, sharp razor-knife here and trim through our plastic. Now we don't have to, but I like to use just a little black spray paint on this insulation material here. Just kind of spray it in there, and that's going to keep it from showing up under the vehicle, and I think the paint will also add a little bit of a glue, kind of keep it from blowing out as we head down the road, which it shouldn't. Next thing we're going to do is get our exhaust lowered down here. We're going to use a little bit of spray lubricant here. Spray these hangars, and that should help it slide it off a little bit easier. Now the one on the outside, you want to do this one first, and then we can mess with the one in the middle there. Just push on it from the backside there and you see you can get it to work off. If need be you can use a pry bar on that one, but typically that one will come off. Then we want to pull toward the passenger side. All right, now that will give us a little bit of room where we can pull that down and get our tools in. Now we need to get our under body panel put back up into place here. Then we'll get our fasteners put back in. All right, now we're ready to grab our hitch. Now on each frame rail, we're going to have two weld nuts located right here on the backside, one here, and one here. Each one of those is going to get one of our bolts, one of those conical tooth washers. Now the teeth of that washer need to face up towards the hitch, and our hitch will go right in between right there. We'll have these two, and then two in the exact same location on the other side. Now for our tow hook in the middle, we've got a U bolt. Kind of want to spread that out and get it to go around there. It's going to hang down just like that, and then there's a bracket on our hitch that's going to line up there. We'll grab our hitch, get it up into position here, and secure it first with our flange nuts will go underneath that hitch plate. So, we've got to work it up over our exhaust hangar. You'll see that metal bracket coming off the exhaust is going to go right through the recess in the middle of the hitch there. Make sure our other side goes up and in. Then we'll get our U bolt through. We need to thread a flange nut on each side there. Just like that. That'll hold our hitch into position. Get our bolts started on both sides. Now we can take just a quick look, and make sure our hitch is centered with the vehicle, and start snugging down our fasteners. Now we can look in our instructions, find our torque specifications, and get everything torqued down properly. Now before we hit the road, let's get our exhaust put back. We're going to do these in the same order, use a little more spray lubricant there. They're usually a little more cooperative going on than they are coming off. With our exhaust back in place, that's going to complete our installation of the Curt Custom Fit Class III trailer hitch receiver, part number C13119 on our 2016 Honda CRV.

Here's a picture of the completed assembly of both the Curt 2" trailer hitch and Swagman bike rack, both purchased from etrailer, and installed on my wife's 2012 Honda CRV. Thanks to the videos and reviews on etrailer, installation of the trailer hitch and assembly of the bike rack was straightforward and relatively easy. Like some others, I cut a three sided "flap" on the underside rubber splash shield of the CRV with it in place and then trimmed it and taped it securely around the trailer hitch after installation. That made the job faster and neater. It's a tight seal around the hitch. After reading lots of reviews, and giving it a lot of thought I decided on the Swagman XTC-2 rack, and I'm very glad I did. It works very well, and holds both bikes securely in place. I added the Curt stabilizer strap as that was recommended by several others along with Curt and I believe that helps stabilize the rack even more. There's no shaking or swaying while driving with both bikes attached. I considered the more expensive Swagman rack that folds forward, but thought the weight of 47 lbs. would be too much, especially for my wife if she ever decides to go with our grandkids when I'm not home. 409906

While I rated it as excellent, there was one"small" problem where one of the holes in the left mounting bracket was not lined up to the hole in the frame. I was able to use an 8-pound sledge hammer to move the flange enough to get the 2nd hole to be aligned, and allow for installation. The wiring harness was simple to install after learning how to loosen the 2 interior body panels. This is the 2nd CRV I installed one of trailer hitches from E-trailer.... 665797

I bought a bike rack and a trailer hitch from etrailer and, I have to say, it has been one of the most wonderful experiences with a seller I've ever had. LOTS of communication asking if everything went well. The bike rack was easy to put together and the trailer hitch was sooooo much easier than I imagined. Everything fit together perfectly and with no problems. I'd buy from these guys again in a heartbeat! 559724

Very good product. Installed CURT 13119 hitch on my new 2013 Honda CRV. Couple of suggestions: a.) this install is not possible for one person to accomplish, unless you're a super hero who has an extra arm and hand b.) a lift is highly recommended although we installed FLAT on the garage floor. c.) suggest you purchase an exhaust rubber support bracket removal pliers (Lisle at $19.95 is a good buy) OR first make sure your dealer has the pair of rubber hangers for your make and model and then simply cut the old ones off and replace them with new rubber hangers. A pair of new rubber hangers for my car cost me $7.95. d.) If you're installing on a new Honda CRV which has a plastic cover, you DON'T need a rotary tool as a simple utility knife will do just fine in trimming the plastic cover. 96588

Why do you need to remove the underbody panel to cut the hole? If its plastic, and you just need a rectangular hole to reach the bolt holes cant you cut the hole with the panel in place?
-- comment by: Jerry - 05/15/2014

You can, but the instructions indicate that the panel should be removed, so that is what we advise. This most likely to make sure that there is no dammage to the panel itself, and because it is much safer to trim the panel while laid out and not in place under the vehicle.

-- Rachael H - 5/22/2014

I just did this install on my CR-V and cut the hole in the panel with a utility knife while the panel was in place. I used a sharpie to outline the rectangle and did drill holes at the 4 corners to get the cuts started but the plastic is pretty soft and cuts easily with a utility knife I used one that allows you to control how much blade is exposed since a 1/4 to 1/2 inch of blade is all you need.

Trailer arrived fine, except there where two gouges where paint was flaking off. Fortunately I had some gray primer and black spray paint which I used to cover the chips. They were on opposite sides of the trailer. The box was in good shape so not sure where it happened. The instructions were very clear and the hitch fit like it was supposed to. All the holes lined up just fine and the videos on line were very helpful. I would have given this product one more mark closer to Excellent except that one thing that I didn't like at all was the way the paint crinkled at the spot where the u shaped bolt gets bolted on with the provided nuts. I was tightening the hitch to the u shaped bolt and as the nuts tightened against the painted hitch I could actually hear and see the paint crinkle. It was as if the paint coat wasn't adhering to the metal. If it had adhered properly, I would have just expected the bolts to scrape some of the paint away not cause it to crinkle. So I took my black can of spay paint and coated the area really well to protect against corrosion. Here in Florida, that is a big problem. 152277

I had the same issue with the u bolt nuts. is the paint supposed to crack like this?
-- comment by: Brian W - 10/02/2014

Hardware biting into the painted surface of the steel can cause the finish to crack or scrape. It's perfectly fine to go back over the area with a spray paint to cover it back up.

My husband and I installed this hitch on my 2012 CRV together. He just turned 71 and I am 65. It probably took 90 minutes as we aren't as strong as we used to be. Lol looking forward to getting out there and riding my bike on the trails around Pocatello, Idaho. 647199

Thanks again for this year after sale review request. The hitch arrived in great condition. Had to buy a torque wrench that worked great when tightening the bolts. Also used Locktite on the threads. I removed the plastic shield and carefully drew out where the cut was to be made for the left strut to go through. However I only cut three sides and used the fourth as a hinge. This gave me a door. I had to trim a little off the end so that it would swing up in place and snug against the strut. Then I went around and used black silicone to seal the door in place. Used duct tape on the inside to hold the door in place. I used the same black silicone to cover all the exposed bolts to prevent corrosion. All in all the installation went well. You may need an extra hand to hold the unit in place when bolting it in. I see where some jacked up the back to facilitate the install but I just laid a thick cargo blanket on the floor and crawled on my back like I did in the swamp at Paris Island. Great experience. 309249

Very rapid shipping, everything was included and worked exactly as described. I did the installation and it took a little less than an hour - it would have taken less than that if I didn't have three kids and an incredible ability to lose tools the second I set them down. I used a floor jack to position the hitch for the U bolt which worked great. Removing the body panel was straightforward once I figured out how to pop out the mounts. I used a box cutter to cut out the plastic from the body panel and missed by an inch but I don't think the description could be any better and it looks fine in place. In the 2013 CRV the panel has a layer of white padding kind of spot welded to the panel which you have to cut. It might be nice to show a picture before and after in the printed instructions as I cut off more than I needed too. The hardest part of this job was getting the body panel back into place as there is apparently a trans-dimensional separating the reality that existed before you remove it from the reality once it's removed. I have no idea how I got it back in there but one minute it was all wrong and then it sort of transported itself into the right place. No idea how I did that...... Removing the exhaust hangers without the tool in the video takes a little work but once I got the oil behind the mounting head then popped right off. Don't tighten any of the four frame bolts until all of them are started or lining up that last one becomes painful. Torqued it all up, re-hung the exhaust (MUCH easier than pulling it off) and it looks great. I have one body panel attachment thingie that won't go back in but I doubt that it matters. All in all a completely painless procedure, thanks etrailer.com! 178399

After ordering this months ago, I finally installed it. Life got busy, so I had to put this project on hold. The video combined with the PDF instructions made for easy installation. I would only add that I needed a pair of wheel ramps to raise the back side so that I could get under the car. I was able to borrow the ramps, the torque wrench, and the socket with extension. The step involving the dremel looked hard, but I just used utility scissors and it was fine. I didn't even need help holding the hitch in place. I did it all myself and it took me about 1.5 hours. I'm not much of a mechanic or anything. If you're used to working with torque wrenches, you could get this done in an hour. I'm so happy with the hitch. It looks great, it's strong, and it was so much cheaper than going to a place and paying for labor and their mark-up. Thank you etrailer.com! 218946

I still love it. I use it exclusively to carry my Thule Vertex swing-away bike rack also for sale here.Every now and then Ill see another 14 Honda CRV with a hitch. Ill quickly do a mental comparison, and Ill usually like mine better. U-Haul does some really ugly hitches, btw. I always tell everyone about etrailer, and I often receive this response: I know, arent they great?

The finish on the hitch is excellent..The round tube design looks more modern or at least i so believe.This is the hitch to buy if you do not have access to a lift as there is no drilling required to install.The instructions included are spot on and if you are somewhat mechanically inclined and have the required tools or can borrow or rent , you should be able to properly install the hitch. My only headache was related to not being able to install the bolts on the muffler side as there was excessive rust on these two weldnuts.I ended up getting a tap to chase the threads and then was able to bolt right up.It is possible a wire brush would have cleaned it up but this was really stubborn stuff.I was concerned with having to cut the underbody trim panel but again the location on the instructions are correct.I did use a dremel and a regular reinforced cutoff wheel as that is what I already had and cut clean as long as you keep the RPM`s high. due to having to get the tap the next day as all the parts stores close on Thanksgiving I could not finish it on the day I started so check those threads as they are exposed.The other side was fine as they are covered by the underbody panel. 320372

This is a very nicely built and finished trailer hitch. While I know the CRV does not have the capacity this hitch does, I like the flexibility it provides, and the piece of mind that it will not come apart while towing something. It fits correctly, all the holes lined up exactly and the bolts went in easily. The plastic bottom cover cut very easily and smoothly with a sharp utility knife. Doing it alone, I used a floor jack to lift and hold it in place so I could attach the center U bolt. (see photo) I didn't like leaving the big hole in the under-body panel. It's necessary to install the hitch though. With the cut-out piece, a piece of galvanized steel and some screws I made an access cover door to close up the hole. See photos. Using a bent coat hanger I held the door down while it put the screws through it. I feel better with the hole closed up, and it looks correct. 344630

Product arrived mint and after the snow was off my driveway it took about 1 hour to install (and take pictures). My advice would to use the enclosed measurements to cut out the left opening (I used a dremel) instead of removing the plastic gas tank guard, its easier, faster and safer as the enclosed measurements are PRESTINE!. I installed it alone so I used a jack to hold it up while I screwed everything together. Screw the center (tow hook) bolts first. One word of caution!!!! My car was ONLY one month old (2015 Honda CRV) yet I almost stripped a bolt while screwing it in. CLEAN YOUR THREADS REGARDLESS!!!! 178092

Hitch was delivered quick and the instructions were in enough detail. Installation took about 90 minutes because of putting the hitch on a four year old CRV, and here are a few extra's that helped the install go quicker. The bolt holes will be rusted and full of road grime so have a brass tube brush handy to clean out the threads and then run the provided bolts all the way in. I used white grease on the rubber muffler clamps and it made the re-assembly real easy. Did this job myself in the garage, so used the garage floor and a rotary zip saw to cut the plastic cover in place. Easy job that one person can do if you plan it out in less than two hours. 496702

Product is excellent. However, as others have said, it's a two person job unless you have a floor jack. We did not remove the appearance panel, used a utility knife and cut three sides to make a flap. After installation, simply folded flap back into place and duct taped it. No gap for dirt and grime to get into. We did have to cut back a half inch on the 16.5" measurement towards the tow loop opening to get the bracket in squarely. 216899


Comments
Hitch working great. I would add however that its much easier to install with 2 people. Will still take more that 30 minutes. Also, a lot easier and less time if you cut the underside shield with a blade knife without taking it off. My only complaint is someone stole my U S flag hitch !

I installed this myself on my 2013 Honda CRV, lying on my back on the driveway, no jackstands or lifts. A thin man can lift the hitch and position it on his chest, without too much trouble, and bolt it on. A fifteen minute task, if you leave off Honda's plastic underbody cover. If you elect to cut a hole in the cover and replace it, the fiddling will add considerable time to your job. The diagram which comes with the hitch is better than the copy online to which the etrailer Q&A directs you: once you figure out the diagram, and follow the instruction's admonition to use the cover's ribs as a guide for cutting, that task is straight forward. There is also some sound deadening fabric on the cover which needs to be cut. I used a Dremel tool with cutoff wheel to cut the plastic cover, and scissors works for the fabric. Reinstalling the plastic cover isn't too hard, but takes some fiddling to line everything up to get the fasteners back in. You must have an extension for your socket wrench to tighten the bolts on the hitch, if you replace the plastic cover; I had to buy a ten inch extension. If you don't replace the cover, you don't need the longer extension, and I could have used the short extension which is in my Craftsman metric wrench set. In short, replacing the cover complicates the job. I don't know if there would be any appreciable increased cabin noise without the cover. 81953

Great product! Installation was easy...watched video..very helpful...l measured and cut the plastic panel on the car with a razor knife then installed hitch...reinstalled the cut piece by drlling holes,cutting off 1/4" to allow for hitch then attatching it with black zip ties...worked out great! Etrailer's order/shipping process was awesome! Recieved my hitch in just a few days...will definately use Etrailer again!! 135161

I ordered the Curt C13119 hitch in October when I decided to buy a 2015 CRV Touring model. I must have ordered it at the right time of day, I received the hitch the next afternoon. However, I ended up having to order my CRV. I had the hitch for three months before I could install it. I left the plastic panel in place and cut the hole with a utility knife. I started with just cutting three sides to make a flap rather than a whole. I wanted to replace as much of the cutout as I could after the install. Bending the flap to 90 degrees, I had enough room to work. After the hitch was in place, I cut a smaller piece from the flap to fit around the hitch. I then used JB KwikWeld to glue the flap in place. The hardest part for me wast getting the bolt directly above the muffler torqued down in the limited space. Thank you for the videos showing the installation. It made the process easier to watch it happen first. The quality of the Curt hitch is excellent, well made with thick paint. Much better than the U-Haul hitch I had on my last vehicle. I have referred several people to use eTrailer.com based on my experice with their website and products. 175880

After one year, I am still happy with my trailer hitch. I have a 2012 Honda CR-V. It was easy to install, I did have to cut the plastic moulding for the car. I used it with a small 4’x8’ trailer. 719978

I received the hitch in a timely manner, and frequent updates on the shipping status. The only issue was the slot that had to be cut out...I had to trim again to get the hitch through the hole. Also, the instructions stated to torque the large nuts to 50 ft lbs and the 10 mm nuts to 48 ft lbs...I think it was a typo, since torquing a 10mm bolt to 48 ft lbs would twist the small bolt apart. As for the fit...it was perfect. I did find that the bolts near the muffler were a bit awkward to get torqued properly, but can be done with the right socket size. Also. I suggest spray some WD40 on the rubber hangers so they slip off easier. 715143

Hitch carriers like the 20x47 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier # MT70108 are a great way to move heavy cargo items that might be too difficult to get up on your roof. Most vehicle roofs are limited to a weight rating of 165-lbs or less and this is only a fraction of the weight that can be carried on a hitch carrier. But these hitch carriers are not intended to hold a large rooftop cargo box. The issue is that such a...

  • Recommended Flat Towing Base Plate and Wiring for a 2013 or 2014 Honda CR-V
    For a 2013 Honda CR-V we have the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # BX2258 that will work well with your Blue Ox Tow Bar. I recommend using Loctite Threadlocker # LT37420 for this installation. For your vehicle wiring, I recommend the Hopkins Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles # HM56304 which is the easiest kit to install with no splicing required and connects directly to the Honda wiring harness behind the tail lights. You will also need the 48" Long 4-Pole Loop...

  • What is the Height of the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Installed on a 2015 Honda CR-V
    Although we haven't installed the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver # E98868 on a 2015 Honda CR-V, we have installed the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13119 on a 2015 CR-V and found that from the ground to the top of the inside of the receiver measured 14-1/4". The reason we can use the measurement of the Curt is because these 2 trailer hitches have the exact same dimensions. With this knowledge that would mean that you need a ball mount with about a 2" rise like the Curt Fusion Ball...

  • Is Towing Capacity of 2015 Honda CR-V Affected by Angle With Curt Hitch?
    The actual towing capacity of your 2015 Honda CR-V, which is 1,500 lbs according to the owner's manual, will not decrease with the angle of the boat ramp when using a hitch such as the Curt # C13119, though towing a trailer of any kind can result in higher transmission temperatures. If you plan on towing often, I recommend using a supplemental transmission cooler such as the Derale # D13502. Also, please keep in mind the use of Curt hitch # C13119 is going to require the use of stabilizing...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack/Cargo Carrier Recommendation for 2017 Honda CR-V
    The Curt hitch part # C13119 is a 2 inch trailer hitch but it fits older models of the CR-V than your 2017 model so you'd instead need the # C13397. We have a great solution to allow you to carry cargo as well as a bike rack with this hitch. Check out the Hollywood Racks # HR1400Z-85-FB which is a 2 bike platform rack that has a cargo tray that attaches to the rear of it. I also attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

  • Where are Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receivers Manufactured 2013 Honda CR-V
    All of the Draw-Tite trailer hitch receivers are made and manufactured in Mexico. For a trailer hitch receiver made and manufactured in the U.S.A. you would want to use a Curt hitch. The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75742 is a confirmed fit for your 2013 Honda CR-V. For a Curt hitch that also fits your 2013 Honda CR-V, I reccomend using the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13119. I have attached an installation video of each hitch installed on a similar 2013 Honda...

  • Can the Curt Platform Bike Rack C18085 Work With Womens Bikes
    The Curt hitch you have part # C13119 would work great with the Curt Bike Rack part # C18085 that you are interested in. The arms of this bike rack would work great with a womens bike as it would be able to slide down far enough to allow it to reach the lower down tube that a womens bike frame would have. If you check out the picture I attached you can see a woman's bike on the rack. The pink bike on the rack is a woman's bike with a lower down tube.

  • Comparison of Curt Hitch # C13119 and Draw-Tite Hitch # 75742 on 2013 Honda CRV
    The comparison of the Curt Class III 2-Inch Hitch, part # C13119, and the Draw-Tite Class III 2-Inch Hitch, part # 75742, for the 2013 Honda CRV is very similar. The tongue weight difference of 350 lbs for the Curt and 525 lbs for the Draw-Tite would be one of the biggest differences. Also, if you will be using the hitch to haul a hitch accessory like a bike rack or cargo carrier, the warranty on the Curt hitch does require the use of a stabilizing strap like the Curt Support Strap,...

  • Torque Specifications for Installing Curt Class III Trailer Hitch on 2015 Honda CR-V
    When installing the Curt Class III Trailer HItch Receiver # C13119 on your 2015 Honda CR-V, you will insert a 7/16 inch U-bolt through the tow hook. After raising the hitch into position, you will secure it using 7/16 inch flange nuts to the U-bolt and 10mm bolts with 7/16 inch conical toothed washers to the weldnuts in the frame rails. You will torque all 7/16 inch hardware to 50 ft-lbs and all 10mm hardware to 48 ft-lbs. I have also attached an installation video on your 2015 CR-V...

  • 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 # HR1400Z 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...

  • Availability of Front Mounted Receiver Hitch for 2014 Honda CR-V
    The Curt # C13119 Class III hitch you referenced is a rear mount hitch. None of our manufacturers offer a front mount receiver hitch for the 2014 Honda CRV. If you need a rear hitch, I'd hope you would buy it from us! If you needed a rear hitch for towing purposes, you'd also need the following to complete your towing system: Trailer connector, part # 118561 Ball mount, part # 2753 1-7/8 inch trailer ball, part # 19260 2 inch trailer ball, part # 63845

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation For 2015 Honda CR-V
    We offer three Class lll trailer hitches that are designed to fit your 2015 Honda CR-V. I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 75742. This hitch has a 2 inch receiver opening. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back edge of the bumper on a 2015 CR-V is 2 inches. The Curt part # C13119 has the same measurements from the pin hole to the back of the vehicle but I like the 75742 because it has more towing capacity than the Curt hitch. I have attached...

  • Best Trailer Hitch for a 2016 Honda CR-V Between Curt and Draw-Tite
    Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75742 for your 2016 Honda CR-V is slightly more recessed under the vehicle than Curt hitch # C13119. You can see in the picture that they are both just about flush with the end of the rear bumper. The picture showing the Draw-Tite hitch from the side is a little misleading though because it isn't a straight on side shot. Still it is a hair more recessed than the Curt. I have also included links to videos showing example installations of these hitches for you....

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Folding-Tilting 4-Bike Rack for a Honda 2013 CRV EX
    Both Curt and Draw-Tite hitches are solid choices. However, I definitely recommend Draw-Tite # 75742 because it is more cost effective without sacrificing quality. The security strap that you referred to for Curt is not necessary when using your new bike rack with the Draw-Tite hitch as well. Please check out the attached installation and best hitch videos for more details. If you're interested in transporting up to 4 bikes while not limiting access to your rear hatch, I would recommend...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Honda CR-V
    First let's start with a hitch, for that I would recommend the Curt Hitch part # C13119. This has plenty of capacity for your camper. However, you will want to consult the owners manual of your CRV to determine it's towing capacity and be sure not to exceed this figure. Since you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also...

My personal recommendation would be for the Curt Class III 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver, # C13119. Going with a 2 inch hitch gives you the added benefit of having more options when it comes to hitch mounted accessories. If you plan to do any towing with your CR-V, I suggest taking a look at the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, # 118561, Draw-Tite Ball...

  • What Size Hardware is Used to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2013 Honda CR-V
    For the hardware used to install trailer hitches on your 2013 Honda CR-V it will depend on the hitch. Draw-Tite Class III hitch # 75742 and Class II hitch # 36520 use Hex Bolt M10X1.25X30 CL8.8 and a 3/8-16 U-Bolt. Curt trailer hitch # C11555 uses 1/2-13 x 2-1/2 LG and 2-7/16-14 x 1-1/2 carriage bolts along with matching block spacers. Curt hitch # C13119 uses a 7/16 - 14 x 1.75" x 1.00" C-C u-bolt and M10 - 1.25 x 30 hex bolts. If you have one of these hitches but not the hardware...

  • 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...

  • Can Underbody Panel be Trimmed without Removing for Hitch Install on a 2016 Honda CR-V
    Removing the panel on the 2016 Honda CR-V allows for easier access and installation of trailer hitch # C13119 but if you can install it by just trimming that panel AND if the panel can still be secured properly to the vehicle then yes you could just trim it. But I would not recommend trimming it while still on the vehicle because there is always a risk, even if a small risk, of accidently cutting something behind that panel so it is best to take it off, trim it, and put it back on.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Honda CR-V LX AWD
    The tongue weight figure you referenced, 150 pounds, is correct if the hitch or owners manual states the max tongue weight is 10 percent of 1,500 pounds. The vehicle tongue weight capacity is what you will need to go by, even if the hitch is rated higher. In this case, if the hitches you are interested both exceed the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle, there is no advantage to going with the higher of the two. When you are calculating how much weight is on the hitch you would...

If you plan on doing any towing please consult the vehicle owners manual for the vehicle gross trailer weight and tongue weight capacities.

    The Curt Trailer Hitch Support Strap, # 18050, is designed to help provide extra support to the receiver when carrying hitch mounted bike racks and cargo carriers. For the 2012 Honda CR-V the Curt hitch, # C13119, requires a support strap for all non-trailer loads for manufacturer warranty requirements.

  • 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,...

    We do have many trailer hitch options for your 2012 Honda CR-V that do not require drilling, however, they do require cutting the underbody panel to install a trailer hitch. One way around cutting the underbody panel would be to completely remove the underbody panel and then replace the panel when the lease is up. One thing to keep in mind when leaving the underbody panel off of the vehicle is that the underbody panel does contain some insulation, so you may notice a little more noise inside...
