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 - 2014 Honda Odyssey - Draw-Tite

Today, on our 2014 Honda Odyssey, we'll be installing the Draw-Tite 2-inch receiver tube hitch, part number 75270. This is what our hitch will look like once it's installed. Next, we'll go ahead and give you a couple of measurements to assist you with selecting accessories for your new hitch. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer most edge of the bumper is 6-1/2 inches. From the top of the receiver tube opening to the ground is 12-1/2 inches. This will assist you with selecting accessories, such as a ball mount, bike rack, or cargo carrier. Now, we'll go ahead with installation. Now, to begin our install, we'll first need to remove the underbody trim panel located on the driver's side.

To remove the trim panel, we'll need to remove multiple fasteners on the inside edge of the mud flap. Then, we'll move underneath, where there's a bolt on the inside edge near the rear tire and then 3 push pin fasteners along the outside edge. To remove the push pin fasteners, we'll simply take a flat-blade screwdriver and get underneath the center of the fastener and pop it out. Now, with all 3 fasteners out of the way, we'll go ahead and remove the underbody panel. With the panel out and removed, it will not be reinstalled. Next, we're going to move over to the passenger's side.

We'll need to lower the exhaust. To lower the exhaust, we'll remove the rubber isolator from the metal hanger. To assist in removing the isolator from the hanger, we'll use some spray lubricant. Then when using a pry bar, we can simply slide the rubber isolator off of the metal hanger. We'll go ahead and point out our attachment points. We'll have a total of 6 attachment points, 3 in each side.

These attachment points bead 00:01:43 weld nuts built into the frame by the manufacturer. Now, before we attempt to install the new hitch and hardware, we'll want to clean out each one of the weld nuts, because over time, they'll build up of rust, dust, dirt, and debris. To clean them out, we'll use a spray lubricant and 1/2-inch nylon tube brush, part number 814092. Now, we're ready to go ahead and install the hitch. We'll take the passenger's side and feed up over the exhaust and then bring the driver's side up to position. Now, we'll go ahead and put our block in place above the hitch, lining it up with the pre-drilled holes in the hitch and our weld nut.

Then, we'll take our bolt, go through the hitch, through the spacer block, and into the weld nut of the frame. Keep in mind that each process we do here on one side, we'll give a repeat identically on the opposite side. Once we have all the fasteners installed finger tight, we'll go ahead and run it down. Next, we'll torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. Now, with our hitch secure in torque specifications, we can go ahead and reinstall our exhaust hanger. With that, we're ready to hit the road. That'll complete our install of the Draw-Tite hitch, part number 75270, on our 2014 Honda Odyssey. .

This is the first of two of these bolt-on hitches that I have purchased for our vehicles, and after one year of use, I am very satisfied with this item. Installation was relatively easy with some basic tools, and the hitch has worked flawlessly for use with bike racks and cargo baskets. etrailer has competitive prices on so many great products, and the BEST customer service you will find anywhere. Installation photos and videos are second to none. Thanks etrailer! 564876

I have used the trailer hitch several times since it's purchase. I wish I would have done it sooner. I did struggle with the install, but not due to the product. One of my pre-drilled install locations had rusted quite badly and needed to be re-cut prior to install. In the end it's attached, secure, and incredibly handy! Thanks for a great product and install info! 682160

I cannot grade the towing capability yet, but this review is on installation. Less than one hour from start till I was putting tools away on the same day of arrival. One man job with the assistance of a rolling floor jack. Put rear up on ramps, hit holes with wd40, used one bolt to test run all threads, did not unhook tailpipe, simply insert the plate in, over, and let it rest on on exhaust (majority of weight still supported by jack). Start with left side, place 1 bolt loosely and then continue to switch sides with two at a time. Used torque wrench at 68 lbs to finish securing. Done. Looks great too! Up next: electrical and trans cooler. Thank you etrailer for the product and videos. Bought the hitch bc of such great reviews. 177862

Bought a trailer hitch for our 2009 Honda Odyssey. The only hitch (get it) was that it was delayed in shipping by one day. The delay was by UPS, not etraler's fault. We live in a remote part of California, so that's not very unusual. The hardest part of the instillation was getting the rubber exhaust hanger free. A squirt of WD40 took care of that. It bolted up perfectly, as if it came from the Honda factory. I also bought the trailer wire kit. My biggest anxiety was getting the interior panels off without damaging the clips. They came off easily and the wire kit installed as easy as the hitch. Overall, it took about 2 hours from start to finish. That includes getting out the jack, stands, tools, being interrupted by my two year old a few times and cleanup. I chose etrailer because of the price for a Draw-Tite hitch. I had found cheaper hitches online, but didn't know the brands. I trust Draw-Tite. We are in the market for a vintage camping trailer and this is what we need to pull it. I told my wife that this was easiest part I've ever installed. It went as straight forward as the instructions showed. Thank you etrailer. 501948

Our hitch is still working great. When the time comes to get a new vehicle, I’ll be looking to etrailer if it doesn’t already have a hitch. I’m very happy with my purchase.

This is a piece of cake. A heavy piece but a piece nonetheless. My son and I installed this in an hour or so. We had to wait for a driving rain to let up so I beat him two out of three games of eight ball. Then we used a leaf blower to dry the carport and we spread some cardboard and crawled under the Odyssey. The video was extremely helpful and we had it up and torqued to spec in no time. No pictures, sorry. It was dark and wet. But we had a good time and it looks and works great. Thanks. 418937

I would rate this hitch 5/5 except the receiver was just a bit wider than factory-installed one I have on my Suburban. The ball mount rattles a bit due the excess play - not sure if that's by design. Installation was simple - thanks to ETrailer's videos. Didn't have help so I propped one side with a trash can. 92100


Comments
I have grown to accept the rattling of the receiver. My neighbor said what do you expect, its for a trailer! :-I would say the only negative thing about the hitch is it sits low enough that the receiver rubs cement on an inclined driveway. In short, one year later, Im happy I bought it.

Well built product shipped expeditiously in a heavy cardboard container. UPS had ruptured the box in several places and one side seam with staples was completely open. However, the accompanying installation hardware, wiring harness box and American Flag hitch receiver cover were well packaged and taped securely on the center of the hitch; they were intact and undamaged. After the hitch arrived, I watched the installation video once, then assembled recommended tools, to include one jack stand and an electric trouble light. Using one side panel removed from the shipping box as a pad to keep my clothes clean while lying on the concrete floor of my garage, I checked the "give" in the rubber exhaust suspension donuts and decided to proceed without removing the exhaust pipe hangar. Inspection of the six pre-drilled holes in the frame of my 13 month old 2013 Honda revealed that they were clean. I placed the right end of the hitch on the exhaust pipe and used the jackstand to support the opposite end of the hitch. The spacers were placed on the hitch and bolts with washers were started, then tightened in an alternating manner. The most challenging part of the process for this 73 year old man with moderate arthritis was reading the index on my torque wrench (the type with a pointer) through bifocals due change soon. Holes in the hitch aligned perfectly with the predrilled ones and installation was completed in less than 30 minutes. Wore gloves and emerged from the job clean. A superb unit that looks good on the Odyssey. Have installed hitches before but this job was made far easier and quicker due to hitch construction and perfect pre-drilling of holes. Highly recommend this economical unit over other pricier national brands that I have used in the past. 120131

I didn't think I could do this until watching the videos on this site. Very straight forward. This is on a 2002 Honda Odyssey installation in 2018, 16 years with no tow bar. Start to Finish installation of this tow bar 3.5 hours. - 3 hours of cleaning the rust out of the under carriage nuts. This included 1 trip to the local auto parts store to purchase Performance Tool W1231 20-Piece Engine Brush Kit. This kit is a life saver at getting rust out of the nuts. - .5 hours installing the tow bar. I will say that if you have rust in your under carriage nuts, then there is not a way that I could figure out to get the rust our with out disconnecting the muffler from the back support bracket. The jack stands that I had were too tall to support the tow bar so I needed a 2nd person to help. If I had the correct support, then putting the passenger side on the muffler (with the last bracket attached) would have worked no problem. The rectangular steel spacers can cause an issue on the holes closest to the bumper. They need to be twisted slightly because of a screw holding molding to the bumper. Great product so far. 467077

Free shipping delivered within 3 days! The bracket ends were sticking out of the box and had minor cosmetic scratches which did not affect installation or function. Hitch is over 40lbs, oversized & bulky shape so not a surprise to see that. I read installation would take hours and required ramp to raise back end but that was not the case for me. We're in SoCal where there's not much rain so cleaning mounting holes on the frame was really easy. A single spray of WD-40 and I was able to hand screw all 6 bolts. I only had to pop the tail pipe off the last rubber mount to get at the bolts on right side. I used 2 car jacks to lift up & position the hitch to be mounted (see pic). In fact not raising the back end allowed easier installation for me. The longest time was spent nudging hitch to get that last bolt in. Total job time - about 2 hrs from opening box to completion. Excellent hitch, strong solid feel, and much easier installation than expected. 341499

Honda Odyssey hitch installation I COMPLETED THE INSTALLATION ON SATURDAY MORNING...I DRAFTED A STEP BY STEP WRITE-UP ON HOW I COMPLETED THE INSTALLATION....I INCLUDED SOME TIPS SUCH AS USING A 1/2" CU TUBING WIRE BRUSH TO CLEAN OUT THE BOLT HOLE THREADS AND USING A SCISSOR JACK AND BLOCKING TO LIFT THE UNIT DURING INSTALLATION. ( A CRITICAL TIP FROM MY BOSS WHO IS A LONG TIME TRAILER USER AND AUTO AND BIKE MECHANIC)..YOUR INSTALLATION VIDEO'S WERE VERY HELPFUL PARTICULARLY ON THE WIRING INSTALLATION...I WILL FOLLOW-UP WITH SOME ACTION PHOTO'S...I AM STILL SHOPPING FOR THE MOTORCYCLE TRAILER!!!.........MY EXPERIENCE WITH E-TRAILER HAS BEEN OUTSTANDING...EXCELLENT SELECTION OF TRAILER PRODUCTS...VERY COMPETITIVE PRICING...VERY QUICK DELIVERY...VERY GOOD INSTRUCTIONS AND EXCELLENT VIDEO ON THE MECHANICAL AND ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION. 4907

The fit to my 2002 Honda Odyssey is great. However, I did not use the spacers that off-set the hitch lower down and away from the frame as the bumper did not interfere with the installation. The round tube construction for this hitch passes through the side plates were it is welded together on the inside of the plates. I like this hitches design because the round tube has the best moment of inertial for a cross member where the weight contribution to the vehicle is minimized and the strength is maximized, therefore the efficiency of the design is optimal. After several days with the new hitch installed we realized a new clunk was coming from the tail pipes flared end bashing into the round tube that is outboard of the side plates. This clearance was too small and when the car went round a right hand corner the exhaust pipe assembly would move on its hangers and bang into the hitch. So I took a hacksaw and cut the tube flush with the side plate and there are no more clunks! This would be a very good improvement to make in the production of this product. But would require the round tube be jigged at an angle and clocked correctly prior to welding the side plates at assembly. 406543

I just installed this Class 3 -2''hitch on my 2010 Odyssey. Great hitch for a great price. My van was 7 years old and the 6 holes were very rusty from WI winter driving. Definitely just order the (12x1.25 Metric tap [from other on-line retailer] right away to clean the nuts out if your van is over a year old. I spent 3 hours scrubbing with a battery terminal wire brush and lots of WD40. The tap is a very rare metric size that I could not find an any auto parts store. Car ramps are handy also. I did this install solo. Good Luck! 414609

I love the hitch but I had some trouble with the installation on my 12 year old Honda Odyssey since the holes were very corroded. Even though I sprayed the holes with WD-40 and used the 1/2" wire brush on the holes it wasn't enough. I finally obtained the proper sized thread tap (12mm x 1.25) and was able to thoroughly clean the bolt holes so that I could complete the installation of the hitch. I suggest that you either include a tap with the hitch, or offer to sell the proper sized tap, and strongly recommend the use of the tap when installing the hitch on older cars. 151869

This product was easy to install. I don't have many tools, and frankly, you don't need many! The product was shipped via UPS ground. That same day I received two emails talking me my shipping had been upgraded and I received it in two days. I installed it the next day and it took me about an hour. Admittedly, most of that was trying to pop out the plastic pins from the facia on the drivers side of the van and removing the mud flap that was caked with dirt. Other than that, it was 6 bolts, washers and shims. I had to get my 17 year old daughter to hold up one side while I bolted in the other. There was no drilling at all. By the way, Honda wanted $933 for the part and another $400 to install. UHaul charges a little more than etrailer for the part and would have totaled out at $285 installed. If you have a hill for a driveway, you may find that once you install the towing ball into the hitch, it sits low. You can rectify this by putting the ball on the "bottom" then flipping it over so the ball is higher. Great service, great product! 89476

As advertised and very solid. The hitch was relatively easy to install and I did it w/my 12 year-old son in less than 45 min. start to finish. It worked very well for our Thule bike rack on a long family vacation--no negative issues. The packaging that the unit arrived in however was sort of a joke. Much/most of the hitch was exposed and cutting through the box in multiple spots--box looked like Swiss cheese on delivery. I was very glad that etrailer had thoroughly shrink-wrapped the essential/needed bolts to the actual hitch or they would have been long gone through the box. The hitch was already dinged a bit (through the top coat) due to the poor packaging, so I know that I'll see rust in those spots sooner than later given our WI location. 101603


Comments
Still a great hitch at one plus years. Solid, no problens except for some paint chipping off with noticeable corrosion at those spots...probably due to road salt and that it was scraped up during original delivery.

Thanks for the reply. We recommend using an automotive grade spray paint as a touch ups on your hitch for the scrapes and chippings that you are noticing.

Real VALUE to this product. (saw some beat-up Trailer Hitches on Craig's List for almost what I paid for this one) Note: start on the passenger side when installing as there is the exhaust pipe you have to work around. Also watch the washers they are side sensitive. 572832


Comments
The conical toothed washers should be installed so that the concave, toothed surface is against the hitch so that the washers flatten out as the bolts are torqued.

I was caught in a pinch. 5 days before our trip to the beach, found out my 2 nieces wanted to join us for the trip. More the merrier but the space would be tight. We were taking 5 golf club bags with us, which meant 7 people in the van along with 5 golf club bags which would take up the entire trunk space. Needed a cargo carrier ASAP for a much needed space. I had used the hitch from Etrailer before and knew the product was first class, but the time restraint made me hesitate ordering. I called Renee at etrailer and asked about the delivery time frame and she assured me that it usually took 3 days from MO to MD. So I placed my faith in her and placed the order. She made sure the delivery left the premises the same day, about an hour or so to be exact, and sent me a follow up email, with when it was shipped. Sure enough it came to md by Friday morning and I was able to install it that same morning. The attachment was a breeze as it took only 6 bolts to the existing frame to securely attach it. Great job etrailer. The vacation was saved. 139119

Hello George, Well I received the package which was a bit damaged but no damage to the hitch. Removed all the necessary items from the Odyssey and proceeded to install. I did not have the luxury of a lift so I installed it on my garage floor. I saw it was going to be a bit awkward for a 76 year old to handle so I decided to make a couple of blocks out of 2" X 4" . The finished blocks were, one was 9" X 12" and the other was 9 1/2" X 12". I placed the two blocks just inside the welded frame and it laid very secure on the frame surface. The 9" block was used on the opposite side of where I was installing the 19 MM bolts in three places. The 9 1/2 height was the height needed to get the bolts started, when snug place the 9 1/2" block on the opposite side to secure the remaining three 19 MM bolts, torque to specs and installation of hitch is done. (I had to call your help line to get the proper torque needed specs would be helpful if that information was on the installation instructions). The only thing that I had a little problem with was the hole locations were a bit tight but after loosing the opposite side I got the bolts all in. The biggest problem with the whole job was re assembling the mud guards and the existing panel on the drivers side, I wish I had paid more attention when removing them, would have been much easier then. I had some questions and sent them in for etrailer review regarding a bike rack I intend to use this hitch for. I need a rack that will accept two bikes and the bikes have to be supported by setting on the wheels not hanging. With the blocks I made one person can do the installation just be careful and patient. Thanks for a good product and very good service. Sorry no pictures, job is complete. Arnold 377193

I recently received the 75270 for my 2007 Honday Odyssey EX-L and could not be happier. The entire kit was extremely well documented and the hitch was well made. All the holes lined up perfectly and the installation went smoothly. A few general comments: *Preparing the holes:* Some folks had recommended getting a tap and re-tapping the holes. I thought about it and decided not to because I was afraid of stripping the holes It took something like two hours of extensive WD-40 use and scrubbing to clean out the six holes, but the bolts eventually went in without a problem. I live in the Northeast and so had 7+ years of water, salt and general grime build-up. Hopefully it will be easier for others. (As a reminder you should install the bolts BEFORE putting on the hitch to make sure that holes are properly cleaned out.) *Removing the tail pipe hanger* I was hoping not to have to do this as some here said it was not necessary. However, as I looked under the car, I realized that there was no way to get the torque wrench in there with the tailpipe in place. Hence, I had no choice. Fortunately, the directions were clear (thanks eTrailer!) and it was not hard to do. *Installation* The one thing I almost messed up was not realizing that you have to install the side above the tail pipe first. This is required because you have to angle it to get above the exhaust. There were no issues, but it is a word of warning because I started on the other side and had i not noticed, I would had to start over. (A big thanks to my friend who was helping me said "you should check out this side." Boy was he right!) 183559

This can be a one man job if you have ramps and a short step stool. The thing that made the install take longer than 30 minutes was that the bolts on the passenger side would not line up if the drivers side bolts were on. I had to remove all the bolts on the driver side and set the hitch on a step stool 12 inches high so that the driver side was about 3 inches away from the mounting location. This was the only way i could get all three passenger side bolts to line up. Torqued to 69 pound-feet and i was done. Three stars for those three bolts. 83466

I had the same problem and it was a nightmare. Why is everyone giving this 4-5 stars then? Box arrived was a joke. The the holes didnt align. Im curious whether the reviews are real or not.

I wanted a trailer hitch for my 2010 Honda Odyssey for a small trailer or bike rack that would not drag when coming up my sloped driveway. Titus answered my call at etrailer.com and explained that the particular one he recommended would be the least obtrusive and least likely to drag coming up the driveway. I also ordered the electric connection kit. Installation was so smooth that you would think I was an expert. The hitch fitted just as custom as it was supposed to be. Even the instructions were selected specifically for my Honda Odyssey. The etrailer videos about hitch installation and electrical installation were so accurate you could have recorded my installations and it would have showed it to be just as smooth, easy, and trouble free. I could not believe it myself. Everything went as smoothly as the etrailer videos. If you look at the attached picture you can barely see the trailer hitch. If it weren't for the etrailer logo on it, you probably would not notice it at all. It is smooth, tight, and trouble free. I could not be more pleased with the service or the product I received. Great job, etrailer. Thank you, Titus 7770

Shipping was very fast and the installation couldn't have been easier. From out of the box, to completely installed was 20 minutes. I didn't bother with removing the tail pipe from the mount. There is plenty enough give to get a socket and extension around it. I also didn't have to chase the threads with a tap or brush of any sort. Even with 170,000 mile on the van, they were nice and clean. Although we live in San Diego and don't get any weather; so your mileage may vary. Bottom line: another well designed product from a well run company. 142727


Comments
David,Just a side note about the hitch. We have found that with a medium load of camping gear and four 2 adults, 2 young girls passengers the hitch will scrape in a lot of driveway schools, banks, gas stations, etc. approaches. And this is without a trailer being towed. I am very disappointed in that aspect of the product. It may work for the a bike rack or the occasional rototiller rental. But I would encourage you to look at some other options on this site. At least, call and ask the staff for their input.

Thank you for the follow up David. With the Honda Odyssey that has minimal ground clearance anyway adding any of the hitches that we currently carry will further decrease the limited ground clearance. If you would like, you could use a device like the # UF48-979022
Ultra-Fab Steel Mini-Roller for Trailers and RVs - Weld On - 1-1/2" Wide x 2-1/2" Tall
$42.46
to make the transition easier when entering and exiting areas with an incline. This particular one will need to be welded directly to the hitch by a certified welder.

Hi Rachael,Thank you for your suggestion. I realize that minivans in general have some clearance issues. We will likely be replacing the van with a new Odyssey in the upcoming few months, and I will let the hitch go with. Since the installation of this product, I have noticed Odysseys around our town and what the hitch arrangements look like if they are present. There are a number of Curt hitches present and it is tucked up much higher that the Hidden Hitch. I think something along those lines is where Ill look for the new van. Or maybe a factorydealer installed option if it is not priced prohibitively.Thanks again for the great service!David

No problem, happy to help. If you would like recommendations for your new Odyssey feel free to let us know. We can check and see if we have installed a Curt hitch on that year Odyssey and see what the ground clearance measurement is for that vehicle. If you find that at hitch is not feasible, we have other options for cargo such as roof mounted systems, and trunk mounted bike racks that may also work for you.

I've owned this product for 1 year now. My purchase went flawlessly. The product arrived on time. My experience was a good one. I found it somewhat intimidating to install because my vehicle's mounting points, the holes where the bolts go in, were corroded and filled with road grime. I thought I was going to be stuck without the ability to mount it. I called the help line and they suggested that this was a common problem and to simply clean them out. I got a wire brush and scrubbed and scrubbed. A friend suggested I use brake cleaner too, and that helped quite a lot. So after 2 or 3 hours of scrubbing, the hitch went on just fine and I have had no problems. I put 4 bikes on the thing, 1 adult, 2 teenager/smaller, and 1 small kid bike. It feels pretty cramped and I have a hard time imagining putting 4 grown adult bikes on there, but you tube can probably prove it right or wrong in a search. I'm not sure if it's fair or not, but when attached the frame seems a tad wobbly. I don't know what to expect. I haven't owned one of these before, or anything similar. I guess I was expecting it to be rock solid and immobile. But it does sort of wobble around a little under load. I've driven to the coasts with it loaded though, as well as numerous trips around town and have had no issues. Some people might find the strap tie downs a little annoying. I think they're fine. All in all, my expeirence with etrailer was fine. I'd give them 5 stars. My experience with this particular product is fine too. I give it 4 stars for the wobble and the cramped feeling it seems to have fully loaded. I'm not an avid cyclist, just a dad with 3 kids and a pile of bikes on a minivan. Works for me! 436141

What great service!!! Purchased Thursday morning 4/26 and received the hitch by Saturday night 4/28. ETrailer hitch was perfect and helped me out of my recent hitch fiasco (see below). I had an eye on this hitch on eTrailer for about a year. Eventually though, I would up purchasing the same model from an alternative retailer that was selling on Amazon, bc I had a $100 Amazon gift card. The other seller shipped me the hitch UNBOXED. Just a hitch with a shipping label attached. Hitch was beat up, dented, scratch, and bent. So unprofessional. Etrialer's mint condition hitch came wonderfully packaged and boxed. I was able to mount it with no problem at all. Really appreciate their install video as well. eTrailer will be my sole retailer from now on. Would not even consider using anyone else. The product itself was also great. Easy to install and mount various hitches. Only using for light loads like cargo basket, bike racks, etc. 502507

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

  • Towing Package for a 2008 Honda Odyssey
    The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2008 Honda Odyssey is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame # 75270 because it doesn't require any fascia trimming (like the etrailer and Curt might). This, as well as the other trailer hitches, exceeds the weight ratings of your Odyssey so you can be confident that you are getting the most out of the trailer hitch. Be sure to check the weight ratings of your Odyssey in your owner's manual and keep from exceeding it. To finish out your towing setup I recommend...

I've attached the photo of the parts because you may be able to get the grade 5 hardware locally but the spacers that are needed may be more difficult.

  • Height from Ground to Top of Hitch # 75270 When Installed On 2012 Odyssey
    When we installed the Draw Tite hitch part # 75270 on a 2012 Honda Odyssey we found it measured 11-1/2 inches from the ground to the top of the hitch opening. That would mean you need a rise ball mount like the # AMSC12 which has a rise of 10-3/4 inches and is our highest rise option.

This means full water and propane tanks, all your food and supplies in place, etc. The towing spec for the 2015 Honda Odyssey shows a maximum allowable trailer weight of 3500-lbs.

  • Trouble Installing Trailer Hitch Bolts Into Weld Nuts on a 2011 Honda Odyssey
    When trying to install the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75270 on your 2011 Honda Odyssey did you spray the WD40 and let it sit for 15 minutes or did you spray it and then scrub it with a wire brush for 15 minutes? If you haven't already try spraying the WD40 and letting it sit for about 15 minutes before cleaning it. If that doesn't work then the next option is to use the 12 mm x 1.25 Tap and Drill Bit # PTW8662 to clear out the weld nuts.

  • Will the Trailer Hitch for a 2016 Honda Odyssey Fit a 2019 Honda Odyssey
    The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75270 that you have now is only a fit for a Honda Odyssey from 1999 - 2017. For a 2019 Honda Odyssey you will want to use the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76170. The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver is going to give you a very clean look as only the receiver tube portion is visible once installed.

    As long as you stay under the towing limits listed in your owner's manual (which you have already checked) then you will have no problems towing your Viking Epic 1906 Camper. With that being said I did take a look at the online version of the owner's manual for your 2009 Honda Odyssey and found that the listed towing capacities are only if the vehicle is equipped with a transmission cooler and power steering cooler. Especially since you will be doing a lot of uphill towing, adding these...

  • Solution for More Ground Clearance for Cargo Carrier on a 2011 Honda Odyssey
