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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2016 Honda CR-V - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2016 Honda CRV, we're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Custom Fit Class Three Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number is 75742. Here's what our hitch is going to look like installed. You see our side plates are going to come down on each side. They're going to meet here, in the middle at our hitch. This is a class three hitch, so we've got the 2" by 2" receiver tube opening. Just about any type of hitch accessory that they do make for vehicles, they're probably going to have a class three version. Now, when it's time to secure all of those items, you always want to use the hole that's closest to the front of the vehicle, that's a 5/8 diameter hole. You want to pick class three accessories and it looks like, even with that weld there, we're going to have enough room for anti-rattle devices, hitch pins and clips, locking hitch pins, whatever you might choose. The second hole that you see here a little bit closer to the rear, that's for use only with the J-Pin stabilization system. The safety chain connection points have a good opening on them, so you should be able to connect any type of chain.

They're made of a rounded steel stock, so that should be nice and sturdy for us. They've attached a small wiring bracket here if you do decide to run wiring to the outside of your CRV. Typically, your wiring will be in the back hatch but they do have this bracket, three pre-drilled holes there, to attach a four-pole bracket, maybe a seven-pole bracket. If that we're the case, you would have to run your wiring from inside of the vehicle out through a ground in the floor or something like that. That's the only time that would really come into play. When it comes to tow ratings and your trailer weight ratings, you're going to have a 675 pound tongue weight rating. That will be the maximum downward force we can put at the receiver tube opening.

Then, we've got a 4,500 pound gross trailer weight rating. That would be the total weight of your trailer and anything that was loaded up on it. Now, the hitch is not rated for use with weight distribution, so you're not going to use any kind of a spring bar setup or anything like that. Of course, you want to check the owner's manual to see what the tow rating of the CRV is and then just use whichever of those are the lowest. Now, a few measurements that are helpful in selecting your ball-mount, bike rack, or hitch cargo carrier will be from the ground to the inside top edge of the receiver tube opening. We've got about 14-1/2". Then, from the center of our hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of our bumper, it's about 3-1/4". Now, the first thing we're going to do is cut out an area here where our hitch is actually going to pass through and go up to the bottom of the frame rail.

Now, you can completely pull this panel down. There's several push pin fasteners that go around the outside edge and a couple of screws or nuts that are in this area but we've found it's really just easier to cut it while it's on the vehicle. What we're going to do is come from our tow hook area here, I want to measure over, the instructions are going to tell you 16-1/4 but we've found 16 is usually better. Then, we want to go over to about 20-1/2, try to mark that in two locations here that way we can get a straight line. Then, from the back lip, which is going to be right about that bend, we need to go forward 3". Now, from that, we'll go forward 8-1/2 to 9", 8-1/2 usually works out okay. We'll use a straight edge and just get all those lines created and we're going to be taking out this middle section right here. Now, the material is a plastic, so typically, a razor knife's really all you're going to need to get in there and cut this out.

All right. Now, once we've got that cut out, there's going to be some material here. It's like some batting material. I like to just pull down on it, then use my knife to get that cut out. Now, we'll use a little bit of black spray paint. What I like to do is just paint that. One, we don't want to see it from behind the car, which we really won't. Two, it's also going to act as, almost like a glue. That's then, going to allow us to look up and in. You can see our frame rail right here. We're going to have one attachment point there and if we come a little bit closer to the rear of the car, there's another one located right there. The next step we're going to do is get our exhaust lowered down. We've got a hanger right here and one right here. We just want to use a little bit of spray lubricant on these. It's going to help us get those slid off. I like to start with this one, it's on this side. You pry it off from the bottom here. You can use a pry bar or a long screwdriver to do it. Once that's slid off, just pull over this way and at the same time, pry out on that hanger. See, that will slide off, get us a little bit of room there. Now, you'll see, with the exhaust out of the way, we're going to have two of the same style attachment points. One here in the rear, one a little bit further to the front. Our hitch also requires a center attachment point. That's going to be a U-bolt. That's actually going to come down through our hitch and we've got a couple of nuts to put on the bottom side there. Now, we're ready to start with lifting our hitch in position. We're going to use just a little spray lubricant in each one of our weld nuts. We're going to use a nylon tube brush, part number 814092. We're just going to get these cleaned out a little bit, just so we can make sure our bolts start properly and we don't have to worry about them running into any interference when we get them in there. Now, what I'm going to do is just guide my hitch right up into position and you see how I can let it rest there on the exhaust That hanger's actually going to hold it in place. That will allow us to get our driver's side up into position. Now, what we want to do is use one of the supplied bolts and the conical tooth washer. The teeth of that washer are going to face up towards the hitch. After we have that through, on the rear-mounting location on each side, we need to put on that flat washer. Now, we can raise it up and get it lined up with that weld nut and get our bolt started. Now, we can come over to the passenger's side and repeat the same process there. Now, we'll want to move to our U-bolt here. You can see that just comes right down through that flange. We're going to be putting on a flat washer, a lock washer and the nut. All right. Now, we can start tightening down our hardware. Then, torque it down to the specifications listed in our instructions. All right. Now, we'll just get our exhaust picked back up. Now, a little bit more of the spray lubricant's going to help you out with getting the hanger in place. We want to do the inside one, then the outside one. We just rotate that on, then we can slide that one on. All right. At that point, everything's re-secured. Our hitch is ready for use. That's going to complete the installation of the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Custom Fit Class Three Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 75742, on our 2016 Honda CRV.

Fit was perfect, instructions were good, needed to use A 10 1.25 tap for holes in SUV frame because of rust, much quicker that way rather than using bolt as suggested. Also a 2 person job! 572852

The model 75742 E-trailer hitch arrived at my house well packaged. I was pleased to see that it was made of heavy steel sections, with excellent machining, welding and finishing. It appeared to be powder-coated. I worked as a mechanical engineer for 38 years, so I have some expertise in this sort of thing. The written installation instructions were less helpful than the video on the website. It was particularly helpful that both instructions said to remove the outboard muffler isolator first. What they neglected to say in the written instructions is that you should detach the inner isolator from the muffler, NOT from the chassis. (You can't get the inner isolator onto the post welded to the chassis after the hitch is in place. ) It would have been helpful if the video gave advice how to mount the hitch if you don't have a lift for the car. I used blocks of wood to raise the 2 X 2 ID bar until I could put nuts on the U-bolt. Then I used the nuts to raise and support the hitch in the middle while I inserted the M10 bolts into the vehicle frame. I found it necessary to use a M10-1.25 tap to clean out the weld-nut threads in the vehicle frame - also not in instructions. Overall, I am pleased with the product -- it has the robustness rarely found theses days at a reasonable price. 563056

A year later, the hitch looks like new. I use it for a bike rack attachment. The 2 inch receiver provides a more rigid connection for the bike rack than a 1-14 hitch would. Im totally satisfied. I would recommend this brand of hitch, though the instructions could be improved, as noted above and by others.

I purchased this last year for my wife's 2014 CR-V to attach a Thule bike rack so she didn't have to put the seat up/down and lug her bike in/ out of the back every time she went to the bike trail. It is very much as expected, very sturdy with solid attachment. Getting the muffler hangars on/off was a chore that took up most of the installation time, but other than that, installation was fairly simple. I used a Dremel to make quick, relatively clean cuts, then snipped the cut a bit wider where the bracket fit through, and finished it by drilling holes and putting in cable ties to keep it closed (pictures attached). 526463

Absolutely no complaints. Hitch still looks like new and hasnt required any adjustment/tightening since I put it on. Very, very pleased. So nice to be able to buy a quality product that performs as expected.

Thank you for such an awesome experience! Never done this before and watching your video made it really easy to install. My jack had broken so I had to do it from the floor. A little tough but managed without any help. Also, The wiring was cake as well. Perfect demonstration and walkthrough on your video(s). You asked for the pics so I shot a few for you. I've never had a vehicle with a tow hitch so my next goal is a trailer. gotta save for that one :( Well, once again I want to thank you, guys! 408267

I Love dealing with etrailer. Customer service is friendly and they actually care about giving great service. This is my second hitch purchased from etrailer. I received my products very quickly and both are excellent in quality. The only thing I would change is the sticker on the hitch is upside down when installed. 568234

Writing this review after 1 year. Installation difficulty was about 4 out of 10. The only real difficulty was needing a second person to hold the receiver in place while I bolted it to the underside of my vehicle. I installed the unit exactly as the directions stated. It's gotten a lot of use over the past year, hauling a variety of loads up to 1500-2000lbs. The receiver mounting is still solid and I feel very confident in this product hauling anything up to my vehicle's tow rating. In Wisconsin we can have rough winters and lots of salt on the roads. There is some rust (as expected) around areas where the paint typically gets scratched. But hasn't affected performance or easy of use. Other notes: I don't recall if the mounting bolts came with Loctite on them. If they did not, I am sure I added some Blue Loctite to the bolt threads. 563483

After deliberating a long time about what to buy, and from whom, I could not be happier with my purchase, product, and experience. It came quickly, at the best price I could find. Etrailer had the specific instruction video online I needed, and had the proper paperwork instructions to fill in for little things. The best trick they mentioned was being able to cut the deflector pan on my 2014 CRV while it was on the vehicle, rather than take it down. Saved at least and hour, and the headache of those crazy plastic panel bolts. The muffler hangers were a bit of a challenge- use lubrication even though it gets all over the muffler. I finished it in 1.5 hours, even with one out-of-order bolting mistake I made. The fit and fishing could not be more perfect. I have added a picture of a work-around I used to avoid needing my wife to climb under the car to help initially hold it in place (most of us don't have the shop lift as pictured in the video). I used my large floor jack to move it in place, protecting the hitch with a blanket - too easy. The ONLY thing I wonder about is if the insulation on top of the deflector that I cut will hold moisture and get heavy and nasty over time. I'm probably going to fashion a cover for the new hole. This is a really nice hitch. Don't let some other knucklehead do it for you, they don't care about your car - or you can pay the dealer $800 to do it. 438679

The Draw-Tite hitch arrived in perfect shape and installed without any trouble. I haven't used it yet, but I am sure it will perform as expected. Draw-Tite has been a leading manufacturer for decades so buy with confidence (and no, I have no connection to them). The etrailer installation video along with the instructions really helped make me confident as I did the install. The video will show you a couple of tips that the instructions don't mention. The shortcut of cutting the underside trim panel without removing it (he used a wheel cutter, I used a sharp utility knife). It was easy because the material is soft and thin. I didn't have a sharp cutting wheel and I have a lot of experience with utility knives. Either way, use extra care, safety goggles and gloves. And remove the third exhaust hanger ahead of rear wheel as the video shows. Lube it like the others and it is an easy r & r; you need every inch of space above to torque the fourth hitch bolt. Oh and I wish I had installed the inside rear rubber hanger back on the car's hanger pin before installing the hitch. I left it attached to the muffler (resonator) and after the hitch was in, I had a little trouble getting it back in place. But only a little, I didn't have to remove the hitch thankfully. All in all, great hitch at a great price and great help from etrailer! 509329

I chose 3-5 day shipping and received it (and 2 other coordinate parts) even sooner. This part was in good working condition and fit properly on my 2014 Honda CR-V LX. No complaints with regard to this part, the shipping, or the service. Installation note: The threads on my CR-V undercarriage bolt receivers were rusted and prevented installation. I had to purchase a "thread tap" set ($27.00) to clean out the rusted threads enought to bolt this trailer hitch in. The thread tap size required for a 2014 Honda CR-V is 10mm x 1.25. 544654

The receiver itself is super beefy - something tells me the car frame would bend before this thing does. For installation (I have a 2015 CRV), I followed the provided instructions & other reviewers' detailed descriptions & it went on without a hitch (nyuk, nyuk). Took around an hour to do the whole process - great product & great company to do business with. 571766

The product fit perfectly. I had a little trouble with the Honda installed nuts in the frame. The holes were tight and some had glue in them. It definitely helps to pre-thread. I watched the install video on the etrailer web site and it helped to take out the third muffler hanger. The video was very helpful! Etrailer was great. Best price, lots of on-line help, and fast shipping. I opted for the standard (lowest cost) 5 day shipping, but the hitch arrived in 3 days! It was installed by the end of the third day. I would definitely buy from etrailer again. 546082

Ordered hitch and wiring harness for my 2014 Honda CRV. Watched the video’s included on the tracking e-mail. Started at 3:45 pm and was finished at 6:45 pm. Just watched and followed the video. Did the entire install alone. Great product and even better instructions on the video. I would highly recommend etrailer.com! Now I have to get a small trailer to pull! 559189

Sorry I did not write back sooner, it’s has been a busy October. I really like everything that I bought. So far I have only used the hitch for my bike rack. But I am planning on using a friends trailer for some yard work and home project jobs. I am a welder by trade and everything is well built and as expected, no issues with anything. I especially like how easy the electrical was to connect to the factory harness. My friend who owns the trailer recently bought another truck and with my recommendation he also purchased a trailer hitch and the other parts he needed from etrailer.com. I have recommended etrailer.com to literally everyone I know. I really like the products and will be a return customer.

First off, this trailer hitch was easy to install (all holes lined up dead on) and the instructions was clear and simple to follow. I removed the plastic panel under the rear of the SUV. I didn't want to cut a large hole (8.50" X 4.25") in the panel as per the instructions. I went ahead and mounted the trailer hitch without the plastic panel. Then I took some measurements and made a template of my own. I cut the hole in the plastic panel just big enough for the left (driver's side) hitch brace to fit through. I cut a thin piece of rubber, with a slit cut down the middle, and glued it over the the inside of the whole in the panel. This should keep out most of the dust, dirt and water. I removed the trailer hitch, pushed it through the hole cut in the panel, with the plastic panel attached I reinstalled both of them. I know it sounds like a lot more work but it looks great. I know, who's going to see it? My wife of course (her SUV). Job done and point made. 296518

2015 CR-V Ex-L There were a couple things that made the installation more difficult than it should have been. This could be far easier with more explicit instructions. Straight away, the measurement for cutting out the appearance panel requires a little guessing. Because of the curvature of the panel, an accurate measurement would require a reference point for where, along the curve, to begin the 3" starting point. The instructions didn't provide this accuracy. I guessed correctly, and it turned out good. I've included a photo of my final cut out. Hopefully this can save someone a bit of time. I will also mention that it's *not* necessary to remove the entire appearance panel. The thought of doing that was overwhelming, and glad I did not go down that road. And, it is not necessary to cut all 4 sides of the panel dimensions. Just do 3 and fold it out of the way...then you can fold it back over to seal up the area, after the hitch is in. Much neater job and leaves the area protected from whatever stuff can get up in there if the cutout is removed completely. One other instruction that was unclear, is the extra washer that goes above the attachment angle of the hitch. The instructions say: Tape (item 7) flat washer to rearward weld nut location on both frame rails. This should have said, there are 2 washers that need to be placed between the hitch and the threaded bolt hole in the frame, at the location furthest to the back of the vehicle. 1 washer per side. The location toward the front of the vehicle does not need this washer due to _ _ _ _ ? I would help to know why it's necessary to have this washer only on 1 bolt hole per side. It would allow the the installer a bit a confidence knowing the reason why there's only 1 per side. Without knowing the reason, I'm still wondering why it is necessary to cause the hitch to be mounted with the slight angle that this extra washer causes. The muffler hangers were a bugger to get off. You really have to leverage your body in a full extension, while laying on your back, and manhandle those things. It *does* help to squirt a bit of WD inside the place where they slide on/off the stem. I used a large flat head driver to persuade the first one off, then it was mostly a matter of pulling/pushing the muffler to get the hanger free. I used a rolling car jack to hold the hitch in place while bolting it up, and that worked great....it balanced on the center, with a little padding underneath, quite stably. With all the running back and forth to watch the install video, then reading and re-reading the instructions, and measuring multiple times, this job took me every bit of 2 hours. 213182

The is a really good product. The online ordering is easy, the product shipped fast and emails were sent to verify and track. The only downside was when I opened the box and took out the hitch it had a bad scratch on the bottom on one side. Not a huge deal as I was able to paint over it so it would not rust, but still, a branch new product should not arrive damaged. The install went smoothly. As many other reviewers have stated, no need to remove the plastic panel under the back of the vehicle as stated in the video. Just cut a three sided slot and bend the plastic back out of the way while you insert the bolts. The measurements were close but not quite right. 16 1/4 from the tongue was fine and lined up well, The distance from the back edge says 3" but I had to recut it down to 2". Using a utility knife worked great to cut the plastic. In the end it all fit well and I was able to tape the plastic piece back in place. The muffler hanging pieces came off well after spraying with some decreaser cleaner. It's a tight fit but it works. The hitch looks great and was not too difficult to install. It took about 90 min. all together. I added some pictures to show parts of the install. I would definitely recommend this hitch! 226520

Took me about 2 1/2 hours to install this hitch on my wife's 2015 CR-V. A big thank you to the previous posters. I made a 4.25" X 8.50 template first and traced the template on the appearance cover. I cut three sides only and made a flap. After installation, I taped the flap up with black Gorilla tape. I cleaned the threaded bolt holes with a bore cleaning brush and spray lube. The video shows the washers being taped to the front threaded bolt hole. Tape won't stick after spraying the area with lubricant. I used Liquid Nails to paste the washer in place. I used a motorcycle jack to lift the hitch close to the underside of the vehicle so I could get the bolts started. I did not have to remove the exhaust pipe hanger forward of the muffler as shown in the video. Had no problem slipping the muffler off the two rubber hangers after spraying them with lubricant. That gave me enough room to install the bolts. I also had no problem reinstalling the muffler on the rubber hangers by hand after torquing down the bolts. All of this was done with the car parked in the garage. Had plenty of room working on my back. Thank you for the video!! 463325

The weather and my schedule finally cooperated enough for me to in stall my Trailer Hitch this weekend. I actually installed mine and also I mentioned a week ago to a friend of mine about your trailer hitches and we installed one on his Honda Odyssey at the same time. We started in the morning and had both completed by noon (his van was a 2008 so we had to use a tap to clean out the treads and that took a long time). The following is what I ordered: 1 T-one Vehicle Wiring Harness 1 Curt Led 4-way Flat Connector Tester 1 Draw-Tite Max-frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Class III - 2 First let me thank you for your quick links to the YouTube videos. They were extremely helpful. Draw-tite Max-frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Class III Installation: The YouTube video was again extremely helpful and the technician's suggestion of leaving the plastic under body panel in place was an excellent idea. The only deviation from the instructions/video I made was to not remove the cut out section of the under body panel but to only cut it along the rear and side edges. I then folded it forward and taped it, and the insulation in place to keep them out of the way while I installed the hitch receiver. Once the hitch receiver was in place I bent the small piece back into place (triming a small piece away from the edge that contacts the hitch receiver and then drilled two small holes and zip tied it into place. I took it on a test run with my motorcycle trailer and it worked like a CHAMP!! My wife was a bit concerned at first about having a hitch sticking out at the rear of her car but was VERY pleased at not only how it looked but also how the receiver is recessed such that it does not protrude past the bumper. Thanks again 502556

I have really enjoyed working with etrailer.com to meet my needs for items required to tow a 2014 Honda CRV. The receiver was installed without removing the under side cover. By just cutting the opening for 3 sides using measurements provided on the driver side creates a flap permitting access to tighten the bolts and run toad wiring (this saved me a lot of time). Flap created can be zip tied and sealed with silicone. The receiver has tight tolerances on the passenger side making it hard to re-attach the muffler to hanger. An extra 1/2 inch removed from muffler hanger cut out on receiver would help. 151013

2012 Honda CR-V EXL . . . I ordered the Draw-tite hitch and a Swagman XC-2 bike rack together. The bike rack box was shipped inside the box with the hitch; together they were very heavy and awkward. I think that is why the hitch was hanging out of its box on arrival. Somewhere along its travels the hitch suffered a couple of deep scratches - one on either side near the mounting plates. They were bad enough to cause me to go to the store and get some primer and gloss black paint. The installation went well even though I did it on the garage floor while flat on my back. This 66 yr old guy is very appreciative of those who included details and pictures with their review. They allowed me to avoid mistakes. I elected to not remove the under-body panel and I only cut three sides to create a flap that closes the hole back up after the hitch is on. I am very pleased with both items and the quick and easy service of etrailer. 289630

This hitch was very easy to install on my 2014 Honda CRV. It fits great under the back and is nicely hidden. The instructions provided were clear and easy to follow. My only comment with regards to the instructions is that It is critical to actually measure the area to be trimmed on the Appearance Panel as the diagram provided on the instructions could be misleading based on the holes and ridges in the appearance panel. Measure twice (or 3 or 4 times in my case) and cut once! Based on some other reviews, I also cut only 3 sides on the trim area so I could close it up by drilling a couple of holes and using zip ties. The removal and trimming of the Appearance Panel took the most amount of time for me as I did not want to make a mistake and wanted to end up with a good looking installation which I think I have accomplished. I installed this hitch so I can use a hitch mounted bicycle rack to haul our bicycles to nearby bike paths in our state. I highly recommend etrailer.com! The site is easy to navigate and has so much helpful product information and videos, both installation and product reviews! This is a great and valuable resource that I can't say enough good about. My order was processed promptly and I received my hitch sooner than I expected. It was well packaged and arrived in great condition. 399382

Wow, what a great hitch. My wife and I plan on towing our bikes with this hitch. We already had a Thule bike carrier that fit onto the 2 inch hitch we have on our Chevy Silverado but sometimes we don't always want to take the truck. We looked at bike carriers to place on the CRV but they all seemed flimsy compared to what we had. As such, we chose to install the hitch. To start things off the price was excellent and I received the item within 2 days of ordering. I also received an email from the company indicating that if I had any issues, to please contact them immediately. A friend and I reviewed the online video (make sure you do this!!!) to install the hitch and moved forward with the process. Following the video and the instructions included with the hitch. we had everything installed within 90 minutes. Just some tips we would include: 1) make the cut into the underside CRV plastic larger than is shown, especially the width. This will allow you to easily place the trailer hitch into position. 2) You do not need to cut a 4 sided hole. Cut 3 sides and bend the plastic toward the driver so that it can be patched very easily with duct tape. I chose to spray paint the plastic and duct tape black but this is not necessary as it is not seen. 3) It was a little difficult to get the muffler hangar back into position once the bolts were tight. We had to loosen the bolts and push the hangar bracket through the hole in the hitch to get this accomplished. 4) We backed the CRV onto 2 small car ramps to allow us the ability to crawl around under the CRV much more easily. I highly recommend this. Overall, I am very satisfied with this product and would highly recommend it to anyone contemplating attaching a hitch to their CRV. I am not a "handy" person but was able to do this without any issues and no one getting hurt!! You can do it!!! 335021

As advertised. Easy to install — watch video from etrailer. Order the brush to clean out bolt holes. I didn’t thinking, “how bad could a 3 year old bolt hole be”. They get enough surface rust and dirt that just spraying with lubricant is not enough. I needed to take time to run to store to get one. Just order it with this part — price is reasonable. Again, watch the video and it will show the recommended process. 729194

Honestly, it’s been on my car for a year. The fit and finish is beautiful, the only hassle with the CRV is cutting the plastic shield. I have NOT towed anything with it. But I have mounted a step for some additional rear end protection. 728470

The YouTube video is a tremendous help in installing. Fits my 2015 Honda CRV perfectly. After installation I realized that instead of cutting the rectangle out of the underbody trim, I could have kept the driver's side of that rectangle intact and just temporarily hinged it up and out of the way. Then it could have been taped back into place. As it was, I cut a piece of vinyl house siding, spray painted it black and attached it over the hole with push-in nylon fasteners. I expect that to prevent collection of snow or debris in the open space, and to prevent wind noise. 719355

Very solid heavy duty hitch. Definitely watch the installation video. It will save time and aggravation. Note that the rear mounting bolt on the passenger side is very difficult to tighten with a conventional ratchet and socket let alone tighten to the specified torque setting. I had to use a crows foot wrench on my torque wrench. 714588

First I must say the instructional videos are excellent. They helped me personally throughout the installation. The Curt wiring harness was straightforward and easy. Took me about 40 minutes. The Drawtite class 3 hitch was a challenge for one person but with help from the previous buyers experience I incorporated the hydraulic car jack trick and it worked. Took just under two hours to finish. Used it yesterday and everything went perfect. Thanks for good products and videos. 710663

I received the hitch for my CRV from UPS at 3:00 pm, no issues with the packaging, started the install at 3:30 pm and completed at 5:00 pm. The measurements for cutting the protective plastic under the CRV were off a little, had to re-cut. I was able to only cut 3 sides of the opening and then use Gorilla glue to reinstall. I watched the videos of the install and they have helpful hints. All good, plan on using the hitch with my bike rack. Thanks etrailer. 705512

Stellar hitch. Installation was a breeze. Except I did not remove the dust cover. I measured and cut access hole in place. Then reinstalled the cutout with gorilla tape. Installation time less than an hour after I got organized. The electrical was a different story. The plug was way high in the upper panel. It left the fuse inaccessible if it were to blow. Though it worked great, it could use a minor redesign. I set this up to pull two jet skis. 704090

I received the package promptly, no problem. I Proceeded to watch the video and read the instructions. Both were very good. I did the installation at my home. I have lots of tools and equipment, but like most home workshop guys no car lift. I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 mostly because these things rarely go as smooth as the videos show. There was a great amount of hassle getting the hitch up to the mounting holes, holding it in place and getting the bolts started. I ended up using a bottle jack to do that, it helped a lot. It's best to get the side over the muffler done first, while tying off the other side close to the frame. Get both bolts started, leave a little loose then do for the other side. If you do one bolt on one side then one on the other, you won't have the flex needed to get the other bolts lined up. Once you get the four bolts started you've got it. Overall a very good product and customer support. But my arms are sore wrestling with the thing getting it finished. I recommend etrailer and the 75742 hitch for my 2013 CR-V. 697159

  • Cargo Weight Capacity of Hitch Carrier Used on Honda CR-V
  • It sounds like you have a lot of cargo to transport in and on your Honda CR-V. Hitch carriers like the 20x47 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier # MT70108 are a great way to move heavy cargo items that might be too difficult to get up on your roof. Most vehicle roofs are limited to a weight rating of 165-lbs or less and this is only a fraction of the weight that can be carried on a hitch carrier. But these hitch carriers are not intended to hold a large rooftop cargo box. The issue is that such a...
