Video Transcript for Curt Trailer Hitch Installation - 2019 Honda Pilot

Today on our 2019 Honda pilot, we're going to be taking a look at, I'm gonna show you how to install the Curt class three trailer hitch receiver. This is what our hitch looks like when it's installed. You can see the cross tube is completely hidden behind our bumper fascia. It's going to maintain a nice clean look on the back of the vehicle.This is going to be a class three hitch, so it's going to work great for all of your class three accessories. We're gonna have a two inch by two inch receiver tube opening, reinforced collar to give us a little extra stability there. Hitch pin hole's going to be five eighths inch in diameter.

It's going to take a standard five eighths hitch pin. Now the hitch pin does not come with a hitch, however, can be found here at etrailer dot com. We're going to have a rolled steel style safety chain loops and you see it's going to give us plenty of room for different size hooks.This hitch is going to have a single black powder coat finish that's really going to resist any rust or corrosion. As far as our weight capacities go, we're going to have a 900 pound max tongue weight, which is the downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube. 6,000 pound gross trailer weight, which is the trailer plus the load included.

You can use weight distribution with this hitch. Tongue weight's going to stay the same, however, trailer weight's gonna go up to 8,000 pounds.I do recommend checking the owner's manual of your Honda to make sure the vehicle can withstand that amount of weight. You're going to pick the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch. As far as the installation goes, it's very simple. You're going to use existing weld nuts in the frame.

It's going to come with all necessary hardware. There's not going to be any drilling or welding required. I do recommend getting an extra set of hands to help lift the hitch into place.Now let's give you a few measurements to help you when deciding on any hitch mount accessories you may need such as a bike rack, ball mount or cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost part of the bumper is going to be about three inches. This number is important for any of your hitch mount accessories that may fold up against your vehicle.

From the ground to the top innermost part of the receiver tube, it's going to be about 15 inches. Now let's show you how to get this installed.First thing we need to do to start our installation, go ahead and remove your spare tire. We're going to be using three existing weld nuts in the bottom of each frame rail. That's a good idea because these are open to the elements, so I had to spray some lubricant in there. Use a nylon tube brush and clean the threads. What we don't want is we don't want our bolts to cross thread and cause an issue. With those weld nuts.With an extra set of hands, we're gonna raise our hitch into place. We're going to take our hex bolt, conical inaudible 00:02:18 and we're going to make sure the teeth are facing up towards the hitch. We're going to get one installed on each side to help hold our hitch in place while we install our remaining hardware. 22 millimeter socket, we're going to tighten and then torque all of our hardware to the specification in the instructions.Once you're done installing your hitch, you can reinstall your spare tire and you're ready to go.That'll do it for our look at and installation of the Curt class three trailer hitch receiver on our 2019 on a pilot.

I checked out the video on youtube and read the other reviews for my 2016 Honda Pilot. The hitch arrived a day early. I followed the simple instructions and was able to install the hitch in about 45 minutes by myself. Having another set of hands would have been nice but I just used a jack stand to keep one end up while I worked on the other side. Getting the exhaust out of the way was a bit of a pain but with a little WD-40 I was able to move it easier. The hitch looks like it was made to be there. All in all I couldn’t be happier.l and have already recommended the product to friends. 553341

I just bought a 2016 Honda Pilot and I can't believe this hitch is already in production and ready for delivery in just a few days. And although this hitch is strong enough to pull a big trailer or boat, I plan to use it for my bike carrier only. The price is amazing too. I asked the dealer if they could install just a hitch and was told, "No. You have to install the wiring harness as well." Total cost? $580 plus tax and installation fees of about $225! I'm impressed by the near invisibility of the hitch. On most cars I see with non factory hitches most of it is hanging below the bumper and you can clearly read it's manufacturer's name in bold letters. Not a Good look! Lastly, when UPS driver brought the box to my front door I thought it had fallen off the truck somewhere down the road. The box looked like it had bounced down the road for about a hundred feet. Not to worry. Even the driver was impressed that the hitch had neary a scotch and was ready for immediate installation. 213729

I have the 2016 Pilot and was very displeased by the dealer response and price when I requested the hitch as well. I was nervous to order this, not knowing if indeed it would fit due to the new design and model just being released. So, were you able to install this one without any complications?

More from Doug L. First, make that scratch not scotch. Secondly, the directions and YouTube video both show installation on the Acura MDX. However, both SUVs use a similar chassis so the directions were appropriate. I questioned having to first. lower the spare tire but quickly realized that I could rest the hitch on the fully lowered spare while I positioned the hitch into place. Also, attach the side with tailpipe first because if you attach the other side first youll hit the tailpipe when you try raising the hitch.

Just for the record, the receiver portion of the hitch sits BELOW the bumper, unlike the expensive factory hitch that is all hidden BEHIND a removable cover in the bumper.

As always, the Curt hitch and etrailer are the best! I got notification it was delivered. I went home and installed it in about 15 minutes by myself (probably not recommended). Dealership cost was over $500. Installed by myself and got the hitch from etrailer, it was less than $160. 461484

Ordered the hitch for my 2016 Honda Pilot on 2/29 and received it 3/2. Super speedy. Box arrived on front porch with one small tear so I didn't even check the product. My husband threw it in the back today and I had it installed at Goodyear. The Uhaul near me only installs their own product. I hated their tacky stickers on my last car so forget their product which was priced a lot higher. Goodyear charged $25 to install with an only for you price. This was after they checked that it was an easy install and I gave them the Uhaul $29 price. The video made installation look easy but I don't own a torque wrench and would have paid the $50 quote I first received for convenience sake. Thank you! The savings are being put towards a new bike rack. 239455

Super easy to install, just 6 bolts! Looks good! Package was in good condition upon delivery. I think it took longer to install the wiring harness than the hitch. End to end installation time for both was about 1.5 leisurely hours. 528281

Trailer hitch and wiring were both as represented by etrailer. They installed fairly quickly in accordance with the instructions. They were received expeditiously after the order was placed. The only issue was in determination of whether the trailer hitch wiring would fit my 2019 Honda Pilot. 571291

A little more difficult to install than I had anticipated. Unless the hitch is tipped down and slid up behind the exhaust pipe hangers, it will not go into place. I mounted it by my self and it rubbed the exhaust hangers until secured in place. If the portions that fit flat on the frame were notched slightly, this would not have been a problem and would have swung into place much more easily. I believe that this would still have been a problem even if I had a helped on the install as the hitch is wider than the rubber bushing on the exhaust hangers. That said, it is a heavy duty well made product and looks great on my 2017 Acura MDX. 445716

I purchased a new Curt trailer hitch to put on my 2016 Acura MDX. It's primary use will be for a bicycle rack. Let me first start with the website - it's great! Etrailer does a fantastic job of being current and having all the latest stuff. The product review videos and installation videos are awesome and they were a huge help in helping me make a smart decision on what product would work best for my use and vehicle. As for the hitch there were no surprises. It had clean solid welds and a pretty darn good painted finish for a trailer hitch. It was a perfect fit and I installed it easily in 30 minutes tops. I had also planned on buying a 2 bike platform bike rack from etrailer but found myself needing it much sooner than I had planned for so I bought one from a local bike shop. I ended up paying $40 more than what etrailer had it for.... But again thanks to their website for helping make a smart decision on a bike rack. 299930

First time ordering from eTrailer in Canada. Knowledgeable staff fast delivery. We ordered Curt hitch for 2016 Honda Pilot Touring. Took a chance as not sure would fit Canadian Honda as this is for US models. Dealer installed without issue. The top of the hitch receiver is 14" above ground level. This is below the rear lower bumper panel. The hitch does not have bracket for the wiring harness - will deal with this later. 219409

Good product. Nice fit and they used high quality steel and bolts are excellent. Etrailer does a great job of supporting their sales with installation videos, that's why I went with them. BUT horrible job packaging for shipping. They threw wiring harness, full tow hitch frame and tongue with ball all in one box. They had their own boxes but the wait of the frame and being loose crushed and destroyed other boxes. Also frame came out of large box and chipped paint on two edges, so I had to paint these two damage spots before install. 5 stars product. 1 star packaging. 426083

I ordered an etrailer hitch for my 2016 Honda Pilot. Everything was packed well and shipped quickly. I was amazed that it was so easy to install and everything lined and fit perfectly and the 6 bolts, included, was all that was needed. The electrical harness also was so easy to install. Just plug in the main connector, insert the included fuse on the Honda fuse box , and all lights worked perfectly. This hitch is better than the Honda factory hitch and I saved lots of money. 350668

The hitch went on in under 30 minutes... it would have been half that if the frame holes weren't so "gunked up". Installing was very easy and I was able to do it without another hand to help hold the hitch while I secured the bolts. I bought this on Saturday and it was delivered on Thursday, all for no shipping charge. The video was great. I watched it before in installed the hitch. It was so detailed, there was no need to read the paper instructions. 422300

Curt trailer hitch Item C13146 fit my 2017 Honda Pilot perfectly. This hitch is built very strong and installed easily. No need to drop the spare tire to install as shown in the video. The hitch goes nicely past the spare tire and the only issue with the spare in place is torqueing the most forward bolt on the passengers side. I was able to get the proper torque on this bolt but with the spare in place it limited the swing available for the torque wrench. Still less trouble than dropping the spare. Very well built and finished product supplied with the proper installation bolts and special washers. Most of the hitch structure is hidden behind the bumper panel with only the receiver and safety chain rings showing below. Nice black gloss finish, looks really good. 552324

The product was even more heavy duty than it appears. It was designed perfect for the application(I even installed it without taking down the spare!) And for the price, I could have bought 2 and still been well under the purchase price from the dealer. JUst to be clear, on the new Pilot you DO NOT need the "skirt" application as it looks cleaner than the dealer OEM without. 565068

I received my trailer hitch for my 2016 Honda Pilot and installed it right away! The product fit "perfectly" and everything installed without any problem! The video associated with the product greatly helped and I did some pre-installation procedure that helped me install in a very short time. I had located the connector in my vehicle and removed the rubber grommet as well as the spare tire before the product arrived. As heavy as the hitch was (well made) I was able to install it by myself without having to jack the car up. I started at one side and loosely installed a bolt then lifted the other side and installed a bolt to lift the hitch in place. I then installed the remaining bolts, checked for center position then tighten all the bolts to the recommended torque. This is the second hitch that I have installed on a Honda Pilot and this was the easiest (Curt) one to install. 301056

Received 2 days after I ordered. Fit the 16 pilot perfectly. Local shop wanted 350, trailer rental place was 420 to install. So I saved a ton of bucks just by putting in six bolts. About an hour to install including going to the parts store for a 22mm socket. So I really only saved about 190 bucks. A second pair of hands and an impact gun would make it super easy. 567504

Ordered this Curt hitch for my 2015 Acura MDX, AWD. I was too lazy to install it myself (actually, my tools are in storage) so I took it to my local U-Haul, who did the install for $27, labor charge only for the 15 minutes that it took these pros! A suitable hitch for my vehicle was EASY to find on the e-Trailer web site, ordering was a breeze and delivery was Jimmy John's fast, within ~3 days or so. Even the box arrived in great shape which has been a customer complaint in the past. Best of all - the hitch price was about $50 less than my local seller so this was a great value as well. Love e-Trailer's approach and will DEFINITELY use their web site again for future purchases. 222317

Have my trailer hitch and wire harness installed for a year now and everything works great. Installation was easy onto my Acura MDX as the bolt holes lined up perfectly with the threaded holes in the vehicle frame. My only wish is that the wire harness was a few inches longer to help position the electrical box in the vehicle's structure. I could not put the electrical box in the exact location I wanted because the wire harness was a few inches too short. I would recommend this product due to its ease of installation and great performance not to mention it is much lower in cost to the OEM trailer hitch. 572108
