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.


etrailer.com Technical Support

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 - 2016 Honda Odyssey - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2016 Honda Odyssey we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Draw Tite max frame trailer hitch receiver class three. Part number 75270. Here's what it's going to look like once it's installed. You can see it's got a nice, round, tubular design. It's going to tuck up close to the bottom of our vehicle. It's going to have a nice black powder coated finish with our flat style safety chain loops.

It's got a pretty large diameter hole so it's going to fit most of your safety chain hooks through there without any problem. It's going to be a two inch by two inch receiver class three. You'll notice it has two inch pin holes. The rear ones are going to be our standard five eighths pinhole. Then we're going to have a half inch up here in the front.

That's going to be used for you J-pin stabilization device. You're also going to have a nice rounded collar covering the shank for our receiver tube. Now this hitch is designed for six hundred and seventy-five pounds of ton weight and four thousand five hundred pounds of gross trailer weight, which is your loaded trailer. Now if you use your weight distribution system, you're going to raise that up to five thousand pounds of gross trailer weight still remaining at the six seventy-five for the ton weight. Now you want to check with your manufacturer or your owner's manual and use whichever number is the least amount for your vehicle. Now let's go ahead and get you some measurements that's going to aid you in selecting some accessories such as a ball mount, a bike rack, or a cargo carrier.

From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer most part of the bumper, it's going to be about six and a half inches. From the ground to the inside of the top of the receiver tube is about twelve and a quarter inches. Now let's go ahead and show you how to install it. Now to begin our installation we need to remove this appearance panel that's on the driver's side back here. We're going to use a panel tool, or you can use a flat blade screwdriver.

Just going to pry out the center here and we'll release the clips. We're going to have three clips along the bottom edge here. Straight out from the bottom here we're going to have a ten millimeter bolt. We'll take our ten millimeter socket and we're gong to pull that down. Now if your vehicle is equipped with a mud flap, there's going to be a screw on the back corner here that we're going to need to remove to remove our panel. We'll just take our panel and we'll slide it out of the way. Our next step is going to be to remove this rear hangar on our exhaust, so we're going to take a pry bar and pry off the rubber grommet so we can move it to access the factory weld nuts that we'll be using to attach our hitch. Now we're going to clean out these factory weld nuts. It's going to take a little bit of spray lubricant to put up in the holes. Then we're going to take a tube brush. If you don't have one you can pick it up on our website, part number 814092. We're just going to clean out, get all the dirt and debris that might be built up in there and any rust and we'll do that on both sides. Now it's always a good idea to take the bolt for our hitch, just go ahead and thread it into all the holes just to make sure it's going to go in nice and even and easy so we won't have any issues after we have our hitch sitting up into place. Now we're going to have some spacers that will be going in between the hitch and the frame of our vehicle, so I'm going to take some clear packing tape. Just lay them on there, just to hold them into position as we're raising our hitch up into place. Now you'll notice on the front there's two holes here. The frontward most hole is going to be for an older vehicle. Your newer vehicles as a sixteen, it's going to use the second hole back, so we'll tape it to the second hole position. Now we'll get a second set of hands and we're going to place our hitch up into position. We're going to be using the supplied bolt with a conical tooth washer, making sure that the teeth go towards the hitch. We're going to go ahead and start our bolts into position. The rearward most spacer on the passenger side, we're going to turn that long ways so it's going to not interfere with this little bracket that's welded on with all this insulation sprayed on it. We'll just turn that one straight and we'll pass everything else out of the way. Now you might want to take the one on the driver's side as well and spin that spacer around so it passes this bracket here, not to cause any interference. Now we're going to take a nineteen millimeter socket, and we're going to snug up our bolts. Now we can go ahead and twerk them down to the specifications listed in our instructions. After we have them all twerked we can go ahead and re-install our exhaust hangar. Now we're going to take our appearance shield, we're going to slide that back into position. Then we can just reverse our dis-assembly process to re-assemble it. Put our ten millimeter bolt up into place. Now we can re-install our push clips. Now we'll re-install that one Phillips screw that we took out of our mudflap and that will complete our installation. That's going to do it for our look at and install of our Draw Tite max frame trailer hitch receiver class three, part number 75270 on our 2016 Honda Odyssey.

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

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

2009 Honda Odyssey

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.

The hitch fit perfectly, minimal effort required for installation, was done in under an hour...…….had the new bike rack fitted into it and carrying bikes right away! During install, all holes were perfectly centered to utilize the factory welded nuts in place. Would recommend this hitch to anyone. 575113


Comments

It was actually a gift for my daughter although I installed it for her and I live 850 miles away. Just a month or so ago she said the bike rack was working wonderfully for her. it better! She has 5 kids!!

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.

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

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

2002 Honda Odyssey

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

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

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
$32.19
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.

Comments

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Very well built. Seems to be the strongest hitch available for the Odyssey. Better design compared to others. Great price on Etrailer.com! 576503

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.

2010 Honda Odyssey

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

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

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

The hitch itself was as good if not better than expected. Installed on my 2011 Honda Odyssey. I live in the Midwest, so the rain/snow/road salt it has been exposed to over the past few years have not been kind to the threads on the frame-nuts. Driver's side didn't take much cleanup due to the plastic panel (definitely replace). Passenger's side was another story. I initially tried to use a penetration lubricant and work the bolts back and forth until I snapped the nut welded on to the frame. NOW what? I had to grind off the bold and retreive the nut from inside the frame, then fish the bolt inside the frame and spot-weld it (recommended if you also happen to break off a welded nut). Talking to a friend of mine, he asked if I was using a tap to re-tap the threads. After that no issues. Suggestions: 1. Unless you live in an area of dry, warm weather OR are installing on a brand new vehichle, give yourself 3-4 hours to complete. It takes 10-15 minutes just to remove the plastic panel/mud flap. 2. If installing on a non-new and/or your car is driven in adverse weather conditions, skip the little brush in the video and find a metric (not SAE) tap and die set. (might be able to borrow one from your local auto parts store). 3. If replacing the the plastic panel after install, the video says to drill out the hole bigger, but they fail to give you any further instruction. The reason you have to drill the hole is because the hole that lines up for the little bolt that secures the panel to the vehicle no longer lines up. You need to drill to the backside of the panel if possible. I drilled the hole bigger as they suggested, but it still didn't line up. I ended up going back with a round file and filing a notch even deeper than the hole. 162321

can you tell me what size metric tap you used?

The installation instructions indicate that the hardware used to install this hitch are M12 x 1.25 x 35 mm bolts. So the correct tap that you would need is an M12 x 1.25.

This hitch was as easy to install as everyone said. There are many great suggestions. I did not put my van up on the ramps and regret not doing it but I still managed to install it by myself in 2 hours. The first hour was spent on prep. I did not follow everyone's advise and get a tap to clear the threads. I thought that the nuts looked clean. I was wrong. I looked around for a tap and could not locate one until I went to my local Napa store. They ordered it on Saturday and had it on Monday from their DC. It is a 12.0mm - 1.25 Spark Plug Tap. This tap and WD-40 cleared the threads but it was a slow process to make sure the threads were not damaged. I also removed the exhaust from the hanger to get in with the tap and hitch. I do not know how you can clear the threads or install the hitch without moving the exhaust out of your way. I am really grateful for the idea of using a floor jacket in place of a second person. It helped lift the other side in place and also by adjusting the height I could get the hitch to pitch forward and back to get the plates in. Between the videos and everyone's great reviews with useful tips I am glad I bought the hitch from etrailer.com. I still have to install the wiring but that is a job for another day. I bought the rack to carry bikes but want the wiring just in case I need to pull a trailer. 291019

Really great product. Fits my 2005 Odyssey like a glove. This was my very first installation and I can confirm that it can in fact be installed by a single person, without raising the car and without removing the exhaust pipe. It did take a while (probably 1.5 hrs total) to complete as I needed to clean the threads in the weld nuts. Following recommendation from someone on this web-site (i.e. one of the reviewers), I had purchased an M12 x 1.25 tap and it made the work super easy (initially tried just WD40 with steel brush with basically zero effect as there was some serious rust build up in the threads). I've positioned the hitch on two jack stands (which supported it at JUST the right elevation) and started "wiggling" it towards the car frame. The driver's side was a piece of cake. It took a bit of effort to squeeze the passenger side of the hitch in between the car frame and the exhaust pipe. Once that was completed, the rest was relatively easy. I forgot to mention that I did try to remove the exhaust pipe, but didn't manage to do so. It would have made the things easier, but in the end I ended up "deflecting" the pipe suspended on the rubber piece by hand in order to be able to work with the bolts on the passenger side. All in all, very nice fit, super strong and sturdy hitch and overall - a really great experience (and tons of satisfaction =). Thanks etailer. 438493

2012 Honda CR-V

I purchased the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver that is class III to replace a Curt class II hitch receiver so that I could tow a Jayco high walled pop-up camper, and use a Curt weight distribution hitch. The product had some sharp metal edges and flashing from manufacturing that I had to remove and the black powder coat finish flaked off in a couple of locations as I ran the duplex wire for the EBTC wiring kit. The holes for the back mounting bolts didn't align with the weld nut holes of the tow vehicle, and required using a pry bar to get it aligned in order to mount the receiver! The receiver was not secured in the box or packed well (with any sort of bubble of foam wrapping or card board used to keep it from moving around in the box. When I received the package, the hitch had broken through the box at one end and the finish was chipped there. I've previously purchased two Curt Class II receiver hitch's, the one being replaced and one for another car, as well as a bike rack from etrailer. The quality of those we great and package in a way to secure the receivers in the box. Etrailer has always had great customer service and been incredible to deal with. I am pleased with my purchase, but a bit disappointed with the package of the product and those quality issues mentioned. 506537

Good hitch and pretty easy install. Took about 2hrs including wiring. I listened to other reviews and just bought a 12mx1.25 tap at Ace hardware. I used a ratchet and 9mm socket on the back of the tap. Used chain lube in the wholes and blew out with a air line when done. Propped one end on a jack stand and pushed the other end up to start bolt. The exhaust pipe is fairly simple to get out of the hangers if you use a pry bar like the install video show. Wiring was easy to install, only change I made was I drilled a small hole and fished the wires up under the bumper and thru. Eliminating the the need to let the wire hang out under the hatch. I cut the wires and respliced them together. Then siliconed around them to protect against water and rubbing against metal. They now tuck up behind the bumper cover with easy access. I'd say just about anyone can do this install with a couple tools and a little mechanical aptitude. 545656

Quality and installation were as advertised. A little concerned over needing another 6 inches before clearing the bumper. I feel its a little too far recessed back under the vehicle to be convenient for looking up a trailer hitch. We'll have to get some type of extension? 729177


Comments

There are a number a ball mounts that are extra long to help clear bumpers like your Odysseys. A ball mount that has been popular with other Odyssey owners is the Draw-Tite 9 Inch Long Ball Mount # 2753
Draw-Tite Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 2-3/4" Rise, 4" Drop - 9" Long - 7.5K
$17.73
. If you would like a little more clearance, Draw-Tite also offers an 11-14 Inch Long Ball Mount # 40202
Draw-Tite Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 2-3/4" Rise, 4" Drop - 11-1/4" Long - 10K
$29.54
. These extra long ball mounts will not effect your hitchs towing capacity like a hitch extender would.

The hitch went on without a hitch. Seriously, 30 min if you don't count driving to friends house later to borrow his torque wrench and tighten it correctly. The hitch seems pretty bomber solid. The only time consuming part was messing with the plastic frame cover on my 2016 Odyssey. I did have to cut off part of the driver's side plastic cover that hides the frame, but that took 1 minute with my cordless Dremel. Don't bother trying to pry the cover off of where it's attached to the bumper; just unscrew the 10mm bolt and one philips head screw toward at the front of it so it drops down so you can get to the front hitch bolt. That way you only need to cut off enough of the cover to get the hitch in and get to the two rear bolts. Also, you don't need to drop the muffler on the passenger side--it will move side to side enough to get a sock wrench on the hitch bolts. Put a bolt loosely in the muffle side of the hitch, then raise the driver's side of the hitch and slide it into the hole you cut in the plastic cover with the front part unscrewed and dropped down. After that, it's easy to jiggle it around a bit and get the other four bolts in then tighten them. It's my first time installing a hitch, so I don't know if it's possible for them to fit better than this or be easier to install, but I can't imagine that it can get any/much better. 714261

So far, we've only used it to haul 2 bikes, so we're not sure how it feels to haul the whole rack and 2 more bikes. Pros: -sturdy and bikes fit well without much shaking -it's great that you have the option to put half the rack or both halves Cons: -On our 2011 Odyssey, the bottom of the rack sometimes scrapes the pavement depending on the angle of driveways/roads. That's because the hitch sits so low. -It would be very versatile to have some kind of swing-away function to better access car contents. 697134
