Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2015 Honda CR-V - Curt

Today on our 2015 Honda CR-V, we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the CURT custom-fit class three 2 inch trailer hitch. This is part number C13119. Here's what the hitch looks like once you get it installed. It's a nice, soft round tube. It cuts off sharply right at the end so you don't have a full width kind of a look behind you. This is going to be a class three, so we've got a 2 inch by 2 inch opening, and a 5/8 inch pin hole.

It's going to allow us to use a lot of the accessories, anti-rattle bolts, hitch pin locks, things like that. This is going to offer a 350 pound tongue weight rating and a 3500 pound gross trailer weight rating. You will want to look into the owner's manual on the CR-V. Just make sure that they can handle it. If not, go off of whatever of those numbers are the lowest. For installation, there's going to be no drilling required.

You will have to trim the appearance panel on the bottom a little bit, but really, if you have got a razor knife and a pair of scissors, you will have that taken care of. The class 3 hitch works great with just about anything you want to put in it, hitch cargo carriers, ball mounts, bike racks. If you go with a class 3 hitch, it's not going to be really that much more expensive than a class 1 or a class 2, but you'll have a lot less limits as far as what accessories you can attach. Now a couple of measurements are going to be helpful in selecting your ball mount, bike rack, or maybe hitch cargo carrier. We'll be from the ground to the inside top edge of the receiver tube opening, we've got about 14 1/4 inches.

From the center of our hitch pin hole to the outer-most edge of our bumper, it's about 2 1/4. We have the option to remove our under body panel here, or we can leave it on our vehicle and trim it that way. That's typically the easiest way. As you can see, it's already been trimmed once here. This was for .. Our customer had a class 1 hitch on his car.

He doesn't like the class 1 hitch. He wants to move up to the class 3 to get more capacity, so we're going to enlarge this slightly to allow that hitch to go into place. What we're going to do is come from our tow hook slot right here over 16 1/2 inches. Let's make a mark. Be right there on this rib that runs down. Now from there, we're going to come over 3 1/4 inches, which is going to bring us right to this rib, right here. We've got that marked. We've got this one marked. Now from our location where we've got the push pin fastener, we're going to measure from that forward an inch and a half, which is going to put us about right here. From there, we'll go 7 inches. Right into this area. We're going to go up this rib to here over to this rib. Right there. All of this will be taken out. Let's bring in our utility knife, is what I like to cut the panels with it. It does a good job. Just make sure your blade is sharp. It'll slide right through there for you. We'll follow that rib up to here. Now let's make our corner. As you can see, it's just going to push right in. Then we'll just follow our lines. All right. Now we'll just take a pair of scissors, and we're going to cut out the foam or the batting that's behind it. Now what I like to do is just kind of trim this back just inside of our cut line. That way, we won't have anything kind of hanging out or flopping around as we're heading down the road. Since this did have that class 1 hitch, I'm going to bring this edge over and soften that up so it doesn't catch any wind as we're going down the road. Just like that'll be perfect. Then what we can do is just take a little bit of black spray paint. I like to, you can see it's done here. I just like to hit that batting with it. A, it's going to get rid of the white mark, but B, it'll kind of almost act as a glue and it'll keep that stuff from really spreading or coming out as the wind hits it. Our next step is going to be lower our exhaust slightly. We need to get to our weld nuts up there. What we're going to do is take a little bit of spray lubricant. Just kind of hit each one of them. It's going to help us slide those off a little easier. Sometimes you can grab them and just kind of pull them off. Sometimes you will need . You can see that one came off good. That's the one you want to do first. Then we'll pull the exhaust over to do our next one. Sometimes you will need like a pry bar or something to get them started. Just push from the back side. Just like that. That'll give us a little bit of extra room to get in there to our weld nuts. Now for each one of those, we're also going to do a little bit of spray lubricant. Then we're going to hit them with our nylon tube brush. Now this is part number 814092. If you don't have one, just order it when you order your hitch, and you'll be able to get these taken care of. We're just trying to remove any dirt or dust that might have built up in those or maybe rust or corrosion over time. All right. Now we'll do the same thing over here for our driver's side. Now with those cleaned out really well, let's take one of our bolts and try to start it in each of those four mounting locations, just so we can be sure that we've got those cleaned out sufficiently. All right. That looks good. Let's go over and check our passenger side out. All right. It's perfect. Now we're going to bring our U bolt. This is going to go right around our tow hook, and our hitch is going to come up. We'll put a couple of nuts in the bottom to hold it in place. All right, now we're just going to just guide our hitch up into position. We'll want to start it through our access hole there, and then we'll move down our exhaust just slightly so we can slide that up. Then our U bolt is going to come right through the back side of our hitch there. We'll then take our two flange nuts and get those started. All right, now we'll just allow those to hold our hitch into position, and we'll get our other one started. Now as we start our fasteners, we want to be sure that we have that conical tooth washer facing up towards the hitch. Now we'll go do the same thing for our driver side. Now we'll just start securing our hardware. Of course we want to kind of tighten this down evenly. Now let's go to the passenger side. Tighten those down. All right. Now let's torque them down. In your instructions, you are going to find the torque specs that you will want to use. Just go off of those and get them all to specification. Let's head over to the passenger side and get it done. Now let's hit each hanger with a little spray lube again. We'll do our inside hanger first, and then we'll do our outside hanger. Now we can hook up to our trailer, load up our bike rack or whatever it is that we'd like to do. With our exhaust replaced, that's going to complete today's installation of the CURT custom-fit class 3 trailer hitch receiver, part number C13119 on our 2015 Honda CR-V. .

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

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

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

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?

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?

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.

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

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 !

As expected the hitch for my Honda CRV delivered on time in an engineered packing. The packing is so well designed that they may have ship the hitch package to Mars and back to earth with no single issue. There were NO scratches on the powder coated paint, even no fingerprint on it. Very happy with the product, the welding, joint fit, edge grinding, precise hole location, all in all the fabrication quality was none to compare. Absolutely love the product. I highly recommend to any one who needs a QUALITY hitch. 575877

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

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.

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.

I spent my career in manufacturing and can attest that this is well made. Nice uniform bends, perfect welds, and powder coat is flawless. I was surprised, given the low price I paid for it. IO guess I didn't have high expectations, but just need it to mount my bike rack so wasn't worried. I'm not in love with the way all the manufacturers want to mount this and modify the lower splash shield. It is full of insulation and, by cutting a large, rectangular hole in the driver's side, you are inviting that opening to collect all sorts of water and debris. I am mounting mine this weekend and intend to cut 3 sides and make a light score on the outermost mark. My hope is that I can pull it out of the way, mount the hitch, then trim a minimal amount of the "flap". I will affix the flap back into place with some gorilla tape or the like. It may or may not work, but worth a try. Worst case, I end up with the giant hole I would have had anyway. Anyway, the hitch looks great and etrailer was quick in getting it to me. It had worked its way out of the bottom of the box but there were no scratches or damage. 233342

Works great. Solid and reliable. Happy with my purchase. And where you have to cut the underpan doesnt affect things as I had worried about. Did mine right on the car and minimized the amount of cutting.

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

Could you tell me where you found the wiring harness hookup on your 2015. Was it behind the drivers side rear panel? Thanks in advance.

I just installed an etrailer hitch on a 2014 Honda CR-V. I spent around an hour from start to finish, including the time I spent rounding up the tools I needed and washing up afterwards. The hitch was a perfect fit and I was able to install it by myself, though I do have a small automotive floor jack that I used to position the hitch in place while I put the bolts in. I also used a slight variation/simplification on the installation instructions that others have discussed on this site for the Honda CR-V. I cut the hole in the plastic underbody panel with the panel in place using a utility knife. After marking the panel with a sharpie I did drill small holes at the four corners of the piece to be cut out but this probably was not necessary. The underbody panel is soft enough, and the location of the rectangle needing removal is aligned with the embossed ribs in the panel, so that cutting the hole with a utility knife requires very little effort and is easily done with the panel on the car. Also, for the 2014 CR-V ( AWD EX trim with 17" wheels) there is plenty of clearance with the vehicle on the ground so that it wasn't even necessary to jack up the rear (but I don't mind lying on my back). I used a foot or so of scrap 2x10 lumber on the top of my floor jack to support the hitch while I jacked it into position. I did squirt some PB blaster on the exhaust hangers but didn't need any specialized tool to remove the rubber isolators (just a big screw driver and pry bar). I also saved the piece of plastic cut from the underbody panel, trimmed it a bit, then taped it back in place using strips of Gorilla tape just to deter road muck from splashing in thru the cutout. In retrospect I think I could have just cut three of the four sides of the cutout, then wedged the flap down and held it out of the way with some tape to gain access to the driver side frame rail. Then the flap could have been trimmed and moved back into position and then either Gorilla taped or even held in place with a piece of thin metal (like a coffee can lid) or plastic and some sheet metal screws (and maybe some Gorilla glue). If someone does try this then the side not cut must be on the outside (side away from the car's center). I will be using this primarily for a hitch mounted bike rack. This hitch is probably overkill for this application but it is such a fine piece of craftsmanship and so reasonably priced that I cannot fathom using any other hitch now. 142671

Installation was very easy. Hardest part was the rubber hangers on the muffler. Decided to cut the rear panel with a rotozip instead of removing it, so I took my time measuring. I used a floor jack with a piece of wood and had my wife stabilize it. After cutting the hole, everything went smoothly. Place the bolts, tighten and torque them and your done. The videos were really helpful. Total time about 1 hour. Price and service from E-Trailer were outstanding. 94361

I removed the appearance panel, so that I would not slip and cut any wires above it that I could not see-now that I have done it that way, I discovered there is nothing to injure if you cut the piece in place on the car....the landmarks are obvious for marking the cut out, and a sheet rock knife does a quick easy cutout...my muffler hangers came off with moderate encouragement, and slipped back on with a squirt of silicone spray...all in all, a quick and easy install...oh, if you do it with one person, it is easiest to have a floor jack to raise and hold the hitch in place while you mount the bolts...etrailer is a great company to do business with....Mel

Another great hitch. Shipping was on-time and the hitch was exactly what I ordered. Finish was even but there was slight damage probably in shipping but it looked like it was struck with a ball-peen hammer. A little filing and some spray paint and it was good to go. Instructions were clear and the cutting of the plastic body panel on the underside was much easier than I thought. Definitely measure and use a straight edge when cutting. Dremel with a rotary cutter worked great. Cutting the insulation was simple, really good shears made easy work of it. Prior to mounting run the bolts all the way in and out a few times to clear any debris from the threads you can't get with the brush. Getting the exhaust clear is a little challenging but manageable. I installed the hitch by myself and it went smoothly. Total time was about 90 minutes. I spent a lot of time on the measuring and also added a rubber barrier around the hole I cut. Very pleased with the fit and look of the finished hitch. 275893

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

Received my hitch in a couple of days - etrailer is the best. Its a Curt hitch for a 2016 CR-V SE. It took a little less than an hour since I had watched the video and read several helpful reviews. For the cut-out, I measured carefully and only cut the inner 3 sides, letting the long 4th side (closest to the drivers side) to hinge open while I bolted the left side of the hitch. Afterwards, I carefully cut about a 1/2" strip from the remaining piece to let the window close. Even though the window closes tightly, I will followup with Gorilla tape for a neat finished look. Thanks for the etrailer video and all the helpful reviews. My 4th hitch purchase from here and highly recommended. Even if they weren't the cheapest (which they were), I would buy from them based upon their products, customer service and fast, careful shipping. 437745

I ordered the Curt hitch for our 2012 Honda CRV from etrailer. Easy ordering process. Thorough and professional. It arrived just in time for our planned trip. The Curt hitch is a very high quality product. Installation was fairly easy. Tip: I left the black under pan valence in place. Measured and cut the rectangular hole per instructions using a Dremel. That saved time and effort. Removing the rubber exhaust hangers was probably the hardest part until I discovered they can be pushed off with gloved hands after spraying with WD-40. They went back on easily by hand. I used a floor jack to position the hitch and align the bolts. A perfect fit and quite easy for a one man job! 132107

This review is about the service rather than the product itself. I have nothing but trouble with e-trailer. The original Item I ordered they did not have because they messed up their inventory. I called then a number of times about my order and just kept getting voicemail. Finally, after 4 days of calling, I wrote them an email. They got back finally to me. it was just all a long and drawn out process. Also, they charged my card when they first put the ordering and then charged it again once it arrived! Whats up with that!? Not going to buy from them again..... 538529

I was not feeling well with a bad cold, but managed to get it bolted on in about 50 minutes. I'm 68 years old also. I did not need to raise the vehichle, there was enough room for my belly button to fit beneath my 2014 CR-V. Also I used a box cutter to cut out the required opening at the specified dimensions, the plastic is thin and soft. There is some insulation behind the panel that I cut, but found out after the fact all I had to do was push it up out of the way, then let it fall into places once again. The worst part of installation was getting the rubber muffler hangs to slip off their pins. I now have a cargo carrier ready to go for whatever I need to haul that I don't wnat inside of my car. Perfect for hauling the big buck I plan to get this hunting season. Looks great! 160776

Quality product. Good quality welds and powder-coated paint. The installation took me about 1 hour and 30 minutes. The majority of that time was related to the trim panel which is removed, cut, and then reinstalled. I did the work in my garage with no lift or jack. I find it "interesting" that the video does not show the cutting and re-installation of this panel because the "customer did not want this panel re-installed" ;-).... If the panel is removed and not re-installed this job could probably be done in 30 minutes. I used a silver-colored Sharpie to mark the cutout on the panel. I recommend using a utility knife (with a sharp blade) instead of a rotary tool. The material cuts easily and the utility knife leaves edges that are straight with no burrs. I used a pair of scissors to cut the fiberglass insulation so that the edges were "clean". My Honda CR-V had mud flaps installed so I had to remove the rear driver's side flap (not a problem at all--2 screws). For lowering the muffler, I definitely recommend the use of WD-40 (or other lubricant) on the rubber hangers (like shown in the video). The lubricant helps a lot. Before I started to pry the rubber hangers off of the muffler, I used a pair of large channel-lock pliers--one jaw on the rubber hanger and the other jaw on the end of the muffler tube. I squeezed to get the barbed end of the muffler tube to go inside of the rubber hanger. After that, I could pull the rubber hanger off of the muffler tube. The hitch itself fit perfectly. It is a little bit challenging to torque the front bolt on the muffler side because there is not much room for the torque wrench above the muffler (which is hanging down because it was removed from the rubber hangers). When putting the U-bolt on, I would suggest tightening the 2 nuts evenly. I alternated between one nut and the other, turning the nuts about 1/2 turn at the time. This guarantees that the U-bolt seats properly on the towing hook. A note about the type of plastic clips that are used on my vehicle... These clips consist of 2 parts: an outer sleeve and a inner pin that slides down into the sleeve. When the pin is pushed into the sleeve, it causes the barbs on the sleeve to expand so that the barbs will not pull out of the panel that the clip is holding. When I first started this job, I was trying to pry out the whole clip (i.e. prying out on the outer sleeve). I realized after removing 1 clip that I should be prying up on the inner pin of the clip. When the pin pops up, the fastener can be pulled out easily from the panel. Similarly when re-installing the fasteners, do not try to "hammer" the fastener back into the holes; instead, pull up on the pin, easily press the fastener into the panel hole, and then push down on the pin to lock it into place in the panel. Very neat design. The fasteners on my Jeep are just one-piece plastic barbs--these on the Honda CR-V are much nicer. The instructions are clear and have good photos. The on-line video is even more helpful. I enjoyed installing the hitch--I would recommend this product to others. 103609

Purchased the Curt C13119 hitch from etrailer for a new 2014 Honda CR-V after going over the wealth of product information available on the site that reassured that I'd be getting the right product. I have a Thule bike rack that we used on our previous car and 2" hitches are not available from Honda dealer installation. I'm not a big DIY guy so had our local shop install it. We only use it for a bike/ski rack, not towing, so I know I won't be overloading it. Also purchased the stabilizer strap for the rack (see photos bellow) as per Curt and Etrailer.com's recommendations to preserve warranty. It's not much extra effort to install and adds piece of mind that it's relieving some of the stress on the hitch. We got all this just days before going on a long trip to the Rocky Mountains. The hitch worked great with all four bikes on the rack! 146718

Thanks for the follow up email. You picked a great time to check in since the hitch has been great and we just used it to load up 3 mountain bikes for a trip to the mountains. It worked great in the winter to hitch up a ski rack. It looks great and I like the added assurance from the support strap.Thanks!

Excellent, fast 2 day shipment. Arrived in prestige condition, no scratches. Installed in less than 1.5 hrs. and most of that was cleaning the exposed vehicle bolt holes. I PB blasted them and used a small wire brush to remove the 4 yr old rust. This must be done. Insert and screw down each bolt prior to installing hitch to ensure they seat properly. I did not remove underpanel, used a small grinder to make drivers side opening. Piece of cake. 668047

This is a well made product. Heavy duty material and quality welding and finish. After watching You Tube video, installation was a snap. The instructions were really as informative as anyone would need but the video will boost the DIY confidence level. One note: after cutting the access hole and insulation I used hot-melt glue to attach the insulation around the hole to keep it from potentially peeling back from the effects of wind, weather, etc. Another tip would be to also remove the small driver's side mud flap by removing its two screws. This makes re-installing the plastic body under panel much easier. I'd highly recommend this product. 667557

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

The dimensions on the bolt holes was off such that heavy persuasion (floor jack and pry bar) was required to mount it appropriately. All hardware and parts were great, but the installation became way more of a chore than it was worth. Use another brand and hope for better results! Customer service and shipping from etrailer was top notch, will return for next towing purchase, just not to buy any Curt products... 637204


Comments

When a trailer hitch is constructed, softer steel is used in the side plates as opposed to the harder steel used in the crossbar and receiver tube. This allows the hitch to flex along with the vehicle to a certain degree. This flexibility can also allow the hitch to get slightly bent out of position during shipping and handling, which can cause the bolt holes to be out of alignment. The good news is that its very easy to fix this if you know a few tricks as shown in the linked article.

  • Cargo Weight Capacity of Hitch Carrier Used on Honda CR-V

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.

  • Installation Of Trailer Hitch On 2016 Honda CR-V
  • We are in Missouri near St Louis and are not affiliated with shops that do installations of trailer hitches. If you are mechanically inclined, the installation of a trailer hitch like the Draw-Tite, part # 75742 is really not that tough. I have attached the installation instructions and have also attached a link to an installation video for this hitch on a 2016 CR-V you can check out. I recommend the # 75742 trailer hitch over the Curt hitch, part # C13119 because Curt requires...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation For Carrying 3 Bikes on a 2012 Honda CR-V
  • I recommend adding a trailer hitch and using a hitch mounted bike rack. Adding a trailer hitch also gives you the ability to tow a small trailer if the situation ever came up or you can use a cargo carrier on trips where you may need more storage. The most economical hitch that we offer for your vehicle that has the capacity to carry 3 bikes on a bike rack is the Curt Class III Trailer Hitch, # C13119. You can use any bike rack that fits in a 2 inch receiver with this trailer hitch....

  • What Size Hardware is Used to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2013 Honda CR-V

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...

  • 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...

  • Using Stabilizing Straps on a Cargo Hauler in the Curt Hitch on a 2012 Honda CR-V
  • 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.

  • How to Correct Rust on Trailer Hitch
  • The protective black powder coat finish on a Curt or Draw-Tite hitch like # C13119 does eventually break down from exposure but this is not considered a warranty issue. This normal wear and tear can best be addressed by applying a new layer of rust-inhibiting spray paint, such as Rust-O-Leum brand or a similar product you can find at any local hardware or paint store. Sanding off the rusted areas before applying the paint is recommended. The linked article includes information on...

  • Does Underbody Appearance Have To Be Removed When Installing Trailer Hitch On 2015 Honda CR-V
  • You are correct. As you can see by the attached installation video, our installer said you can leave the panel in place and trim it when you install the hitch like part # C13119. The installer uses a razor knife to accomplish this. The manufacturers do instruct the installer to remove the appearance panel and use a rotary tool, but it can be trimmed in place without removing.
