Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite's Tested Tough program provides testing standards far superior to those outlined by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the go-to source for engineering professionals.



Each Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver undergoes extensive fatigue testing and static testing with the ball mount that is either supplied or recommended for use with that particular hitch, thus ensuring results that are applicable to real life use. Fatigue testing is also conducted on hitches rated for use with weight-distribution systems.


In addition, Draw-Tite performs static testing on a simulated automobile, as opposed to the rigid fixture used for SAE testing, resulting in a more true-to-life scenario.

At etrailer.com we're committed to the products we sell, and to our customers. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Honda Pilot - Draw-Tite

Today in our 2017 Honda Pilot, we'll be having a look at and installing the Draw-Tite Class 3 Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 75225. Here's what our hitch looks like installed. The first thing that we'll notice about our hitch is that the main frame of the hitch itself is completely hidden behind a rear fascia. Th only parts that we will see hanging down is the actual class 3 2-inc receiver itself with our safety chain loops on the side of the receiver. Now on our safety chain loops, they're a unique design where they're on a plate that's welded to the side of the receiver which has a large opening right here, and they actually hang down a little bit below the receiver, which isn't a big deal. A lot of factory hitches on a lot of higher-end vehicles actually have a design like this because they give you optimal room for inserting pins and locking devices into your hitch to secure whatever hitch-mounted accessory you have. Now off to the left-side of our hitch, towards the driver's side, you'll notice that they have a bracket that's welded onto the frame of the hitch. What this bracket allows us to do is to mount any electrical connections that we have to hook-up to our trailer's wiring systems, either a 4-full 00:01:17 flat, 7-way RV or whatever other style of electrical connector you have, you can mount it right back here. Now on the side of our receiver, you'll notice that we have two pinholes.

The larger one towards the front of our vehicle is our industry-standard five-eighths of an inch diameter hitch pinhole that we use to secure our hitch-mounted accessories. The one closest to the rear of the hitch and the rear of the vehicle, what this one is is a J-pin stabilization device hole. What a J-pin stabilization device does is help take away some of the annoying shake, play and rattle out of what is inserted in your receiver. At the very back of our receiver, we have this nice welded on collar right here, which helps give our hitch a little bit more strength and durability, but also finishes off with a nice clean look. Now this hitch features a 900 pound max tongue weight rating which is the amount of force pushing down. It also features a 6,000 pound max gross trailer weight rating which is the amount you're pulling. It does support the use of weight distribution.

However, the max gross tongue weight rating stays the same at 900 pounds but our max gross trailer weight rating increases to 8,000 pounds. You'll want to consult with the owner's manual of the Pilot and not exceed the limits of the vehicle as rated for. Now what I really like about this hitch compared to other ones on the market is that we have a lot of clearance around our fascia with our receiver opening here, making this hitch an ideal candidate to use with bike racks and cargo carriers. Additionally, I do like the style of safety chain loops that our hitch here has, the best out of all the ones on the market because, if we have a large hitch-locking device installed to secure our ball mount into our vehicle's hitch, we don't have to worry about that area blocking our safety chain loops and making them difficult to install our safety chains onto our hitch. Now for a few measurements to better assist you in choosing any hitch-mounted accessory you may need such as a ball mount, bike rack or cargo carrier. You're looking at about 14 and a half inches from the ground to the top of the receiver opening and about five inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rear-most part of the back bumper. Now that we've gone over some features, we'll show you how to get it installed. All right, to begin our install, we'll start by opening our hatch.

Now we'll open up our cargo cover. Now we'll gain access to our spare tire tools, they're off on the driver's side. Right in the middle of our cargo area, we'll see our spare tire indicator here. We'll pry this open, take out this rubber plug. We'll use our tire iron, small end, to go over that part, then we'll use our hook, go into our tire iron, go counter-clockwise and we'll lower our spare tire.

Then we'll get our spare tire out of the way. With our spare tire down now, we have clear access to all of our attachment points. We'll have a look over at our driver's side and we'll point them out. We have three weld nuts on our frame rail right at the bottom. Our passenger side is the exact same way, so whatever we do on the driver's side, we'll do the same on the passenger side. It's a good idea to take a wire brush and clean out those weld nuts of any loose dirt and debris which could make it difficult to go in. We have these brushes available on our website as part number 814092. So we'll just go in and out of them a few times to help clean up the threads. Right, now that we have all of our weld nuts cleaned out, I'll point out how our hardware's gonna work. We have six identical bolts and six identical conical toothed washers. The washer will slide onto the bolt, the teeth will face away from the bolthead towards the hitch and the body of the vehicle. And inaudible 00:05:29 the hardware's the same for all the holes. All right, with all of our hardware in place, we'll now use a 22 millimeter socket and tighten it down. Okay, now all of our bolts are tightened down, we'll torque them to the amounts specified in the instructions. We went ahead and put back up the spare tire and as you can see, it fits nice and perfectly back where it originally was so there's no worries about our spare tire not fitting back into place with the hitch installed. We went ahead and put back our cover here for our spare tire lowering mechanism, we put our tools back in place. Now we can close up our cover, close our hatch and we're ready to hit the road. And that completes our look at an installation of the Draw-Tite Class 3 Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 75225 on our 2017 Honda Pilot.

As I recently purchased an 18 Honda Pilot EX-L, I was contemplating just having the dealer do the install on an OEM hitch. At well over $1000, I knew that I could save hundreds with a hitch from E Trailer. I only use my hitch to carry my bikes on a Thule platform rack, but with thousands of miles of use with three different cars, I have become spoiled to the ease of loading and unloading my bikes with the platform rack. This is the 4th Draw-Tite Hitch that I have ordered from etrailier.com over the past 6 years. Hands down, by far the easiest to install. I think it took me longer to unpacked the hitch that actually tighten down the 6 bolts. With the spare tire removed, there was plenty of room. I used my floor jack to raise the hitch up to a level that I could hold the hitch while starting one bolt by hand.I then tightened the other two and moved to the other side. I finished by using a torque wrench to tighten all six bolts to specs. As always, the videos are very detailed, and the customer service is top notch. I spent a couple extra dollars for upgraded shipping and it paid off, the hitch was at my door step a few days after I ordered it. Great job E- Trailer! 486575

Built as solid as I could have hoped for. I like the built in look of the Honda hitch but not the dealer price tag. It came quickly on the day they anticipated and I installed it in about 25 minutes with 1 extra set of hands. I did have to remove the spare, and I’m not sure how some people don’t but that wasn’t a big issue. The only 1 thing I am not 100% satisfied with is that (look at the picture) the molding on the back of the car rests very lightly on the top of the hitch receiver. You can see that it ever so slightly goes up in the middle now. I would have liked it not to actually touch. I’m not sure if it was manufactured a quarter inch too short or if our molding was a qtr in too low but that’s my one gripe. I do still like it and am happy with how solid it feels and how easily it went on. 704288

Comments

I am very happy with the results on my trailer hitch. Everything is working as it should, but I would have preferred a hitch that was more like Hondas and integrated into the bumper for a cleaner look. But no regrets.

I received my hitch for my 2017 Honda Pilot 2 days earlier than expected. It was so easy to install. It recommends to be install by two persons. I managed to do it my self. A little tuff, but got it on. etrailer recommends to get the nylon tube brush, part #81492, and I also recommend it. Made the bolts screw on a lot better by having the threads clean. As always etrailer staff, Thank you for your help. I high recommend to all my friends to shop at here. 651665

package arrived on time. the box arrived damaged scratches on paint but I still installed it. installation was easy thanks to you tube. the bracket for the wiring was short for my 2017 Honda pilot. bracket needs to be at least 3 inches longer I have attached some pictures other than that I would have been much happier it will do for now. I Hope this review help for the piloteers. 373165

Very easy to install and it did not require me to remove the spare tire even though the instructions say to. The hitch looks great because it doesn't look like an aftermarket product. Very hidden in the view from the rear of the car and the quality looks top notch. I'm using it mostly for bike racks but should I need electrical I will definately order that as well from you. 228922


Comments

All is well and it works great. Had electrical hooked up by [...] last month to tow a trailer and it worked great. I use it mainly for hauling my bikes around with a bike rack so it was a good test to haul wood with a 16 foot trailer as well.

This is my second hitch from etrailer. The first one was for my 2010 Acura MDX and now this one is for my 2018 Acura MDX. My use for this hitch is to attach my bike rack. I am pleased with the quality of the hitch and the amount of money I saved by not getting one from the dealer. I would admit, I like the dealer integrated looks but not for the amount of money they want for it. On both occasions, I had Uhaul installed it for me. Today's installation charge was $35 NYC area. If I had tools and a way to raise my car up a little bit, I could have done this myself. It's very quick and simple installation process watch the video. Here are a few pics of the finish product 484158

I'm glad I found this site! Just purchased a 2016 Honda Pilot Elite and the dealer wanted $1465.00 to install a trailer hitch. He blamed the high price on the "4" hours of installation and new wiring. For less than $200 and an easy to follow installation video, I installed it myself in less than 30 minutes. Didn't need to drop the spare either...fit right into place! Great sales recommendations and follow up from the etrailer staff. This company knows how to run a business and keep a customer satisfied. 5 stars out of 5 stars. 238513

Ordered Draw Tite hitch #75225 Saturday afternoon, hitch delivered Wednesday. Checked dimensions on hitch bolt holes and it was a perfect match for the weld nuts on our 2017 Pilot. Cut out large piece of cardboard from shipping box so cardboard 1-2 ft larger than hitch in length/width. Removed spare tire and placed cardboard on concrete behind vehicle. Put 3 fully collapsed jack stands with rubber pads on cardboard then put hitch on jack stands (one each side of hitch, one in rear by receiver) and slid cardboard under vehicle. Sequentially slowly raised jacks and adjusted cardboard so that bolt holes in hitch lined up with and were just below the weld nuts in vehicle. Inserted 2 bolts on each side of hitch. Only put bolts in 2-3 turns initially so that could adjust position of hitch. Lowered jack stands, removed jack stands and cardboard and inserted remaining 2 bolts. Vehicle is brand new so no need to clean threads on weld nuts. Adjusted hitch into final position then tightened bolts with half inch ratchet followed by half inch breaker bar. Hardest part of installation was getting torque on bolts. Lying on my back on a creeper I couldn't get enough leverage on the torque wrench so I used a 3 ft. length of pvc pipe over the torque wrench to gain additional leverage. It probably took 45 min to get the correct torque on the bolts and this includes finding and cutting the pvc pipe. Estimate it took approximately 2 hours for the whole installation and this includes moving vehicles around in the driveway, tool collection and replacement and spare tire removal and replacement. The installation was done single handed with the vehicle on a concrete driveway and I'm 70 yrs. old. The hitch fits perfectly and looks great on the Pilot. I like that this hitch comes with a mounting plate for the trailer wiring connector. I plan to bolt a 4 flat connector mounting bracket #118144 to the hitch plate to hold the 4 flat plug. The hitch will be used to tow a flat bed utility trailer and a waverunner. I like ordering from etrailer because they have very good products, great customer support and great installation videos. I am a repeat customer many times over and have been purchasing from them for almost 15 years. 366155

Bought a Hitch & Light Kit for my 2017 Honda Pilot. The deals wanted $1400.00 installed. Your videos honestly tell you how hard it may be to install and how to do it so I put money back in my own pocket instead of a greedy dealers! I found you'll because my brother Harley F. Illes, Belleview, Fl. bought one very recently for his spouses 2016 Dodge Durango and highly recommended you'll. I seldom appreciate the customer service at the levl you'll provided because to many companies anymore it's just lip service. Thank you'll for remembering that you can make a pretty good living providing service with excellence in mind. People this is a sincere review for you to consider. I don't work for this company and other than this purchase I didn't know them. 385195

Easy bolt on! Let spare down a little to give wiggle room to line up bolts - nuts are pre placed by Honda. The hardest part was torquing the bolts to specs listed. I bought this hitch specifically for the wiring mount pad - great for 7 wire w/brakes. Put it all in, included the brake control in about an hour and a half. Pulls a 3500# trailer like a champ! 400047

The Hitch was exactly as advertised and literally took 30 minutes to install. My steps were a little different than the instructions: I cleaned each pre-tapped hole on the vehicle using corrosion prevention spray and a used tooth brush. I slid the bar under the SUV using the box as a support to prevent scratches, lifted one end and supported using jackstand and then the other end. I used threadlocker on each bolt, and hand-tightened three bolts on one side, then the other. Using a 7/8 socket, tightened each bolt a little bit at a time to prevent seizing. Some seizing did happen on one of the bolts as the bolt was pushing the support plate against the frame of the car; lots of torque and a few rotations at a time will tighten the gap. 224631

Received the trailer hitch as scheduled. Installed it on my 2014 Acura MDX without any assistance; and without having to jack the car up. Having two people to install would have been a little easier ... even at that it was only a 20 - 25 minute install. Fits perfectly and the hitch is exactly what I ordered. Appreciate the easy tracking system too. 299593

Did you have to remove the spare tire to do the installation?

The instructions specify to remove the spare for installation and re-install afterward. Some folks find it's easier to lower it but not take it all the way off, but when we installed the hitch in our shops, we found there was no need to remove the spare. Check out the video.

Bought this for my 2017 Honda Pilot. Worked perfectly and I installed in myself in under 2 hours. The hardest part was trying to hold it up to get the first bolt in as it is rather heavy (which is good since it will be towing stuff!). Everything fit well and I will only have to stop by a mechanic somewhere to get the bottom bolts properly torqued. I do have a torque wrench, but it only goes up to 80 Ft/lbs. This requires substantially more. Overall a great product and with the video install guides, I will continue to purchase from etrailer. 403578

Dealer wanted $800+ for the hitch and wiring and "we'll order it and you can come back in a week or so for a two hour appointment." I ordered the hitch and it came 2 days later, then I installed the hitch by myself in about 30 minutes using a couple of jackstands to hold it in position before I bolted it in place. Note: I have installed hitches before on several vehicles - the 2016 Pilot hitch install is the easiest one I have ever done. (Installing the wiring kit was a bit awkward, but not too bad.) 305908

Saved $200 by doing this myself. I was a little concerned about the negative feedback about the shipping boxes being destroy upon delivery. But as you can see, it came intact and was delivered promptly to my front door. This installation was very easy. I watched the video for both the trailer hitch and wiring harness and it was exactly like the video indicated. I will tell you on the wiring harness you do not have to pull the panel back. Just get a mirror and locate the connector behind the panel and you can pull it down to the opening. 465223

Hitch was well made and easy to install. Just what I was looking for. etrailer was great at getting it to me quickly. I also purchased a hitch wiring set be Tekonsha. It was designed to work with my 2018 Honda Pilot. I followed the instructions but had no power at the hitch connector. The people at e trailer where great at helping me get things working. Turns out the newer Pilots are missing a couple of required fuses. Once they were installed it worked perfectly. I was very pleased with etrailer. Great products and support. 573113

Hitch was well packaged. The box arrived with some tears but no damage, nicks or scrapes to the hitch. My car is not garaged so there was a good amount of rust buildup in the factory drilled bolt holes. The Magic to get all that gunk out was WD-40 rust release penetrate spray and a 1/2” wire fitting brush hardware stores have them in the plumbing section Once rust was cleaned out installation took about 25 minutes. I installed the hitch solo. Getting the specified torque on the bolts was a workout ! I used 2 Eddie Bauer hanging dome lights to I’ve me great visibility workkng. They are my go to lights. About 10 bucks a piece on-line. 469552

Received item fast. Got the hitch and 7 pins wires. From picture of hitch I thought the hanging kit for wire plug comes wit. Will need to order. Looks good. Had the wife help with getting the screw started. Installation was clear and easy to follow. Hardest part for me was torquing the bolt to spec of 148 pounds laying back on the drive way pavement was a challenge but doable. Complete installed, hitch sits about 11 inches for ground clearance. 728573

I bought the trailer hitch for a bike rack and the hitch silencer to stop the rattle of my rack. I added the wiring harness mainly because it was so simple to install and I might need it in the future. In a nut shell, you had every thing I needed at a fair price and excellent quality. My order was shipped and delivered quickly. The videos on you website are the really the icing on the cake. This was not my first purchase from etrailer and I will always look at your website first when I need something for my vehicles. 722832

I just finished installing the Draw Tight trailer hitch on my Honda Pilot. The whole job took about 30 minutes. The hitch itself is a high quality steel, with a powder coat finish, that fit on the car’s frame with precision approaching perfection. I ordered the soft rubber plug for the hitch opening, but I probably didn’t need it. Unlike my last car, where I frequently banged my shin, which caused me to utter bad words, the etrailer hitch sets back under the bumper, but is easily accessed. I ordered the model with the steel openings mounted downward instead of sideways. I am presently looking at trailers to determine which harness to buy, but the hitch itself is a quality product that exceeded my expectations. Presently I am using it for my bike rack and it is a valuable addition to my car. 714459

What a great experience. looking for a hitch for my 2019 Pilot Elite to add my bike rack. the website is full of information from fit and finish to installation instructions. Having photos of my specific SUV was a plus. i liked the fact that the drawtite had vertical attachment points instead of horizontal at the bottom and came with a bracket for the wiring harness for later. all of which were discussed in the reviews. Had no issues as it came shipped, was in a box and completely secured with holes for handles to easily transport the hitch. All parts were included, nothing missing. I would only have to comment on the adhesive stickers were placed crooked on the hitch, a slight gap on the weld where the mount for the wiring harness would be and too much contact where the bumper meets the top of the receiver causing the bow of bottom of my bumper. Drawtite should make some minor adjustments during manufacturing. Otherwise very pleased with etrailer, hope to make more purchases soon. 694290

While the product seemed fine generally, the brackets that are used to connect the safety chains extend down below the insert and, at least in my vehicle (2016 Honda Pilot), hit the pavement when the vehicle is driven down a steep driveway. Not an ideal situation. 691532

Having read previous reviews definitely helps with installation. I used two clamshell straps to lift the hitch up under the vehicle. Once one bolt was in I removed the straps, drove all of the bolts as tight as possible with an impact driver and torqued according to instructions. The one difficult bolt was by the exhaust pipe which you have to force to the side. A ratcheting torque wrench definitely makes this easier. The product is great and should last the lifetime of the vehicle. 680187

I have nothing but good things to say about etrailer.com . The tow bar fit perfect, and with a little finagling, I was able to mount it by myself. The hardest part was getting the first bolt in place while laying on my back under the car. It gets pretty tight under there. I don't know how easy the harness wiring will be to install. Being a procrastinator, I haven't tried yet. I think the most important thing was the customer service and professionalism from etrailer. From the time I placed my order (I believe they were the lowest price) until now when they asked for a one year followup on my satisfaction, these people have been helpful and great to work with throughout. Thanks again, Tom 680171

Installed Draw-Tite trailer hitch today, took about 30 minutes, 10 of which was removing spare tire on new Honda Pilot. Very pleased so far with purchase from etrailer. Shipment arrived quickly, only criticism is receiver was packed loose in large hitch box, the hitch did get slightly scratched from items banging around during shipping. 677358

Box was broken at one of the corners and there we’re scratched markers were it must rubbing on the truck floor or at UPS warehouse. Overall still a great experience. Maybe put bubble wrap on the edges that break through the shipping box 667746

Delivery on time with the correct harness and hitch You may want to check threads in car frame as I had to tap for bolts to thread. Otherwise Installation was a breeze. Only used once but good results so far!. Pulling boat and utility trailers. 661162

I am sure the hitch will be great (it's still in the box), what is really great is the service from etrailer. There was a possible issue with the hitch being in stock and I was kept informed all the way thru. Really quick shipping and quick response to all email inquiries. This is a 5 star company for sure! 655308

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Installation of Trailer Wiring on 2019 Honda Pilot
  • Installing the trailer wiring on your 2019 Honda Pilot is a pretty straightforward process; if you can install the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75225 on your Pilot I'm very confident you can also install the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118760. To install this harness you simply need to open the tailgate and then open the access panel in the storage compartment on the driver's side and insert the connector into the tow plug harness. You will then ground the white wire by drilling a small...

  • Best Trailer Hitch for a 2019 Honda Pilot to Carry a Bike Rack
  • When comparing the different trailer hitch receivers that fit the 2019 Honda Pilot you're really splitting hairs. There's so much similarity between them. They install in the same fashion and have identical capacities. They also have about the same bumper clearance. Even the price is basically the same. The Draw-Tite part # 75225 has the safety chain loops hanging below the receiver which reduces ground clearance so it's my last choice. Between the other two I'd go with the etrailer.com...

  • Recommended Equipment Needed for Towing with a 2017 Honda Pilot
  • Both the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13146 that you are interested in and the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75225 are identical in weight capacities and installation as well so either one will do a great job. Since you are interested in the Curt option I recommend going ahead with that trailer hitch. You will need to note that neither of these options will fit your 2017 Honda Pilot if you have the full size spare tire. You need the mini spare for proper installation. This will work great with...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for 2019 Honda Pilot
  • For your 2019 Honda Pilot the best hitch we have is the Draw Tite part # 75225 if you plan to do any towing since this has a wiring bracket built into it. It also has a concealed crosstube too which makes it less visible too. Then for trailer wiring you'd want the T-one part # 118286 for a 7-way or part # 118760 for a 4-way. This brand of trailer wiring is our most reliable option so I recommend it highly. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness Recommendation for 2019 Honda Pilot
  • The trailer hitch I highly recommend for your 2019 Honda Pilot is the Draw-Tite # 75225 because it has a concealed crosstube and is a bolt-on installation that will not require drilling into your Honda's frame to install and is the only hitch that fits your Pilot with a dedicated spot to mount your wiring harness. This Class III, 2" trailer hitch is almost entirely hidden behind your bumper, as you can see by the accompanying photo of this hitch installed on a Pilot. This hitch has a...

  • 7-Way Trailer Connector Wiring Harness for a 2017 Honda Pilot EX-L
  • For trailer wiring harness # 118286 for your 2017 Honda Pilot you would not need to add any additional wiring or run any extra wires. It comes with everything needed to make the 7-Way fully functional. To attach the 7-Way to hitch # 75225 I recommend bracket # PK12711U. If you ever want to get a new brake controller I recommend the P2 # 90885 because it is easy to set up and use and it is reliable. You will also need wiring harness # 3070-P to plug the controller into your Pilot if the...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Honda Pilot
  • The Draw-Tite # 75225 and Curt # C13146 are the only two hitches which are available for your 2017 Honda Pilot. There is not one that integrates with the bumper, though as you can see from the accompanying photo, the only part of the hitch which is visible is the actual 2 inch receiver on either model. This is less visibility than most hitches on vehicles and our customers have been very pleased with both as you can see by the reviews. I recommend going with the Draw-Tite # 75225. If...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2017 Honda Pilot without Factory Tow Package
  • Yes, Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75225 will fit your 2017 Honda Pilot. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend 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 includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If the ball mount kit does not have the right rise or drop to tow the...

  • 2018 Honda Pilot Trailer Wiring and Hitch Recommendation
  • We have just what you need to install a 7-way in your 2018 Honda Pilot. For that you'd want the part # 118286 which is a confirmed fit and would work well. This fits regardless of what type of tow package you might be missing. Then for a trailer hitch the Draw Tite part # 75225 is a confirmed fit and would also be a great option. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2019 Honda Pilot that Allows Full Size Spare to Be Kept
  • As long as the wheel size of the spare is less than 18 inches in diameter the Draw Tite hitch part # 75225 will fit your 2019 Honda Pilot and will allow you to keep the spare. I attached a picture that shows the hitch installed with the spare mounted as well as an install video for more info for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2018 Honda Pilot
  • Adding an aftermarket transmission cooler is never a bad idea, as it can essentially prolong the life of a vehicle's transmission while also improving its overall performance. With that being said, with the extreme light duty towing that you plan on doing with your Honda Pilot, one probably isn't necessarily. Installing a cooler can also be a bit tricky for the Pilot that has the 9 speed automatic transmission like yours, which is why only the 6 speed models come up through our fit guide,...

  • Best Trailer Hitch for 2018 Honda Pilot
  • The hitch I suggest for your 2018 Honda Pilot is the Curt model # C13146. This Curt hitch is USA-made and includes all required mounting hardware. You do not have to do any drilling to install it and it will fit fine with an 18-inch or smaller spare tire stowed under the vehicle. It also has a high tongue weight capacity of 900-lbs. An installation video is linked along with the written instructions; the instructions list the specific tools needed to bolt this on to your Pilot. I also...

  • Hitch, Wiring and Ball Mount for a 2017 Honda Pilot
  • We can get you everything you need for a complete towing set-up for your 2017 Honda Pilot. To start, the hitch I recommend is the Draw-Tite # 75225, a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver, maximum gross trailer weight of 6,000 lbs and maximum tongue weight of 900 lbs. With a hitch installed, you are going to need wiring to add a 4-flat connector if you do not have one with the factory tow package. The wiring harness that will work is the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness - 4-Way Flat # 118760....

  • Trailer Wiring and Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Honda Pilot

  • Is Trailer Hitch Available for 2018 Honda Pilot With Spare Tire?
  • The hitches for your 2018 Honda Pilot, such as the Draw-Tite # 75225, will only fit if your spare tire is 18" or smaller. If so, I recommend the Draw-Tite, which has a 2" receiver and will not require any drilling to install. To add a wiring harness to power your trailer's lights you need Wiring Harness # 118760 to add a 4-way if you do not have the factory tow package on your '18 Pilot, or Wiring Harness # 118286 to add a 7-way if you do have the factory tow package. I've added links...

  • Comparing Trailer Wiring Harnesses for 2019 Honda Pilot
  • The difference between the Hopkins Plug-In Simple Wiring Harness # HM43134 and the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118760 is that the Tekonsha comes with the fuses to activate the tow package in your 2019 Honda Pilot while the Hopkins does not. If you take a look at the accompanying photo of the two parts you can see the included fuses; this is why I recommend going with the Tekonsha # 118760 to add a 4-way to your 2019 Honda Pilot.

  • Installing A Transmission Cooler On A 2017 Honda Pilot

To be certain, I recommend asking your local Honda dealer if firmware adjustments are necessary.

  • Trailer Hitch Options for 2016 Honda Pilot with Full-Size Spare Tire

The spare will still need to be lowered or removed temporarily during installation to give you easier access to the hitch mounting points on the frame.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2017 Honda Pilot
  • Starting with the trailer hitch, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75225 for your 2017 Honda Pilot. This hitch is custom-fit for your vehicle and will provide a slightly better ground clearance measurement than the compatible Curt alternative. This has a 900 pound tongue weight and 6,000 pound towing weight capacity. Because the hitch will use existing holes in the vehicle frame, no drilling is required during installation. This hitch will fit with the mini and...
