Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Honda Odyssey - Curt

Today on our 2017 Honda Odyssey we'll be having a look at and installing the CURT Class 3 trailer hitch receiver, part number C13068. Here's what our hitch looks like installed. As you'll see, our hitch tucks up nice and tight up against the bottom of our fascia to help give us the maximum amount of ground clearance that we can get. Welded onto the bottom of our frame of the hitch and the receiver tube itself, you'll see our safety chain plate here, which is has a decent size opening so we shouldn't have much problem, if any, hooking on most safety chains from our trailer onto the hitch. On the side of our receiver you'll find our industry-standard 5/8" diameter hitch pin hole to secure any of our hitch-mounted accessories. On the end of our receiver here we have this nice beveled collar that's welded on to help give it a more finished and factory-like appearance. This hitch features a 350 pound max tongue weight rating, which is the amount forcing down, a 3,500 pound max gross trailer weight rating, which is the amount it can pull.

It does support the use of weight distribution. When you have that set up on your trailer, you have a 500 pound max tongue weight rating and a 5,000 pound max gross trailer weight rating. You'll want to consultant with the owner's manual of your Odyssey and not exceed what the vehicle is rated for or the hitch itself. You don't want to cause damage to either one. Now what I really like about this hitch is the fact that it sits up so high against the fascia, it's very well hidden underneath the vehicle and it doesn't looks like it's going to be causing much of a issue as far as ground clearance goes where pulling in and out of steep driveways. We shouldn't have to worry about the end of the receiver dragging the ground. Now for a few measurements to better assist you in choosing any hitch-mounted accessory you may need, such as a ball mount, bike rack, or a cargo carrier.

You're looking at about 13" from the ground to the top of the receiver opening and about 6" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rearmost part of the back bumper. Now that we've gone over some features, we'll show you how to get it installed. To begin our install we'll need to remove our driver side panel here. We have three plastic push pin fasteners to remove. Right here, next to where the subframe comes up, we have a 10mm bolt. Then right here we have a Phillips screw that we need to remove.

Now to remove these three plastic push pin fasteners we'll use a flat head screwdriver, come in, pull it out on the center part. Use a trim panel tool, if you have one, to go underneath the big section. Push down and it will pull out. All of our fasteners are exactly the same. With our screw, our bolt, and the three fasteners removed, we can grab the panel and pull it on out.

We'll set it aside. Now right by our tailpipe we have an exhaust hanger right here. We'll spray some lubricant on it. Then we have a second exhaust hanger over here to the side. Spray that one as well too. Then we'll use a pry bar to pry off our exhaust hanger. That will give us enough room to get our hitch into position now. Now we'll spray some lubricant in our weld nuts. We'll use a wire brush which we have available on the website as part number 814092, and run it in and out a couple times. The will help remove any dirt, debris, or rust which may be inside of our threads. We'll make sure we'll do this for all of our attachment points. Now that we have our weld nuts cleaned out, we'll point out the ones that we're going to use. On our passenger side we'll be using the two rearmost weld nuts. On the driver side we're still using those two rearmost weld nuts on the frame rail. Additionally, we're going to use this hole here. We'll stick our pull wire into that hole and it will come out this larger access hole just in front of it. We'll place our spacer block onto the wire, insert it into the hole, thread on our carriage bolt onto the pull wire, and we'll pull it on up and down through that hole and remove our pull wire at this time. Now we'll take our bolt, place on a conical tooth washer. The teeth will face away from the bolt head and it will face up towards the hitch and thread into these holes. Now we'll grab an extra set of hands, raise the hitch on up into position, and secure it with the provided hardware. We'll slide our hitch on up over our exhaust. For our carriage bolt we'll use our nut. We'll use a 19mm socket to tighten our bolts and an 11/16 socket to tighten the nut for our carriage bolt. Now we'll torque our hardware to the amount specified in the instructions. Now we'll reinstall our exhaust hangers. That completes our look at and installation of the CURT Class 3 trailer hitch receiver, part number C13068, on our 2017 Honda Odyssey.

Curt hitch C13068 and cover I-728 installed on an Oddy 2012 for the purpose of installing a YAKIMA bike rack. Due to the combination of OEM price and the need for large cutouts in the bodywork required I decided on CURT aftermarket vs. OEM. Selected CURT based on ground/receiver ground-clearance, looks and no mods to bumper bodywork. I installed the CURT hitch by myself in about 1 hour, I used a furniture dolly to move the hitch into position and cribbed it with wood to get to the right height. I did not undo the exhaust mount. Some people have expressed concern over the hitch design, at the end of the day in this "product liability environment" I assume CURT is doing their homework and properlly designed the hitch. Mind you, I do not expect to connect anything heavier than a loaded Yakima 4 bike rack (less than 250 lbs loaded). I do not think I can add to the wealth of information provided by etrailer and the CURT instructions themselves, other than I disagree with the comment to not install the driver side plastic cover. I re-installed by trimming with a box cutter a approx. 1/2 in. × 4 in. corner section. With regards to e-trailer. They could do a slightlly better job packing the hitch so that they do not break through the box (mine showed up sticking out with some minor scuffs). Mind you, I would buy from them again tomorrow based on all the product info, videos and reviews (good and bad), THANK YOU and Kudos I deduct the CURT hitch 1 notch, for not extending the wings to capture all three (3) OEM mount points. Other notes: I separatelly installed an OEM tranny cooler as recommended by HONDA. 71131


Good evening!Great job in placing back the driver side plastic cover. I have a question on photo no.1, whats the extension above the hitch

-- comment by: Dexter - 08/28/2013


That is actually a hitch cover that he wedged up above the hitch to get it out of the way. If you look closely, you can see it has a tether that goes around the hitch behind the collar at the moth of the hitch. It is part I-728.

-- Patrick B - 8/29/2013


Hi Francisco, Thanks for the great review. It helped us to clear any doubts and decide on the hitch. One humble request...could you please post the picture for where you replaced the driver side plastic cover? Im curious to see how to cut out in order to replace it. Many Thanks!

-- comment by: Paul - 12/23/2013


You just need to cut on one corner of the inside lip of cover, you are cutting the tip of this lip. Take your time, place the cover and cut away the interference little-by-little. I placed and removed three times because I wanted a tight fit and did not wanted to cut more material than required. Attached find two images indicating the location where I had to cut on the inside lip of the cover. I used a box cutter and shaved little by little, you could also use a hot knife or a rotary tool just dont overcut. Take your time.

The Curt hitch receiver arrived with some minor scuff marks from the box and one 2" scratch that had been touched up with black spray paint. I could tell it was touched up because there were drip marks on the crossbar. It probably could have been packed better. There was also a white product sku sticker on the side of the receiver about 4" square in size. The sticker didn't have removable glue on it, so it was a total pain to remove. Start to finish, it took just over 3 hours to install the hitch receiver. This included everything from unboxing to installation to clean-up. I installed the Curt hitch on a 6-year old 2009 Honda Odyssey, which required the threads to be re-tapped. I live in a midwestern climate and, while the underbody was rust-free, the weld nut threads were in bad shape. At first I tried cleaning the threads with rust Blaster and a 1/2" battery terminal wire brush. After several go-rounds, I had only made progress on one nut. At that point, I decided to tap the threads. I visited one big box home improvement store and called 2 auto parts stores looking for a 12mm x 1.25mm tap. After all of this, I finally found the tap at Menards (it cost approx. 15 for tap, wrench and tap oil). Once the weld nuts were re-tapped, things went very quickly. I used a hydraulic jack to raise the back end of the van and had help holding/hoisting the hitch receiver into place. The final touch was to use blue loctite to secure the bolts into place. Lesson learned: Next time I purchase a newer vehicle that is capable of having a hitch receiver, I'm going to put silicone or wax on the threads to keep them fresh! I'm rating 4/5 because of the underwhelming packaging and poor touch-up job. Otherwise, the price was right, customer service has been excellent and shipping was super fast. Thanks etrailer! 184865

I delayed for 8yr and finally put a tow receiver on my 2007 odyssey in less then 30min. The video is extremely helpful that I dont even extra hand. 5 nuts and muffler hanger... and that is it!! Cant wait to put my bike on it and go! Thank you etrailer! P.S. the package canbe better prepared. Apparently the carrier has problem taking care of that. 221848


Glad to hear install went well. What bike rack did you end up running with your 07 Ody and Curt hitch? Im in the same situation but want to make sure I order the right combo. Need to make sure the bike rack has enough clearance to clear my bumper when installed and folded up.

I use the Yakima 4 bike rack 2 and dont go 1.5 with adapter that has a base arm can let u swing the whole unit awaywith the bikes and access the truck. Sorry I forgot the name since the bike is from craiglist. It can hold 4 bike with cable lock and receiver lock. Hope that will help.

Great product. Installing the down bolt was easy, my ten year old did it. I went with the Curt hitch because the ends are closed when compared to the hidden hitch or draw-tite. I put this on my 2003 Odyssey, the weld nuts were pretty corroded but everything went on perfectly. I did read several reviews about the customer service at etrailer and how outstanding it is. I agree. I made two separate orders, both shipped from the warehouse 48 hours after the order was placed. 74242


Its been a year, still love the Curt hitch I purchased. Coupled with the Yakima 5 bike rack I purchased from etrailer, my family has been able to mountain bike in Moab, Jackson Hole and Fruita among other places. Never had a problem with the Curt hitch or the Yakima rack.

Kudos to eTrailer for fast shipping and above all the excellent installation videos. The Curt hitch was a snap to install, fit perfectly on our 2007 Odyssey, and looks great also. I bought this over the other choices because I liked the look of the closed end-caps vs. the open tubes (which i suspect have a greater opportunity for debris and rust). I had one minor thing on the install and that was the threading of the bolt onto the leader that is provided (which is excellent), and it was my mistake: I threaded it on too far, and so as a result, once I got it into the hole, I couldn't undo the wire from the bolt, so I had to basically just unwind it - nothing wrong with the product, just a tip for other consumers - only thread enough to pull the bolt through.. :) Once installed, I like the fact that the receiver is slightly recessed from the bumper because there's less chance of smacking your leg on the metal bar. I also bought the Curt rubber end-cap as a precaution. eTrailer also upgraded our shipping so we received in just 3 days, even though we used standard free shipping. So a big thanks for the upgrade and we are extremely satisfied with this purchase and can recommend eTrailer whole-heartedly. 89170

All companies should be run like this one. I ordered Tuesday night and received my hitch on Thursday (for FREE!) and had excellent email status messages along the way. The hitch arrived in perfect condition. Install: I'm a Gomer and I got this thing installed by 40-minutes. No problems, no injuries. The printed instructions weren't terribly clear where they explained the fish-wire/carriage bolt step, but the online video clarified things perfectly for me. I recommend having a friend help, but solo-install is possible. Product: Excellent build quality and well-finished. Mine arrived with no obvious blemishes from shipping. I liked the tapered lines of the Curt hitch compared to the other products when choosing one for my Odyssey. Seeing one out in public before ordering sealed the deal. There are only 4 threaded attachment poins on the Odyssey frame, so the 4 bolts and one fished-in bolt for redundancy give me plenty of confidence. I plan to use a bike rack, but I wouldn't hesitate to pull a small boat. I wouldn't tow anything huge with this vehicle regardless of the hitch rating. Thanks guys! My neighbor should be ordeering soon! 102484

Easiest thing ever to install. This is my 3rd purchase of a trailer hitch from eTrailer (2004 Nissan Xterra, 2010 Honda Accord, 2007 Honda Odyssey). It probably took 20 minutes from start to finish. Holes line up perfectly, video was perfectly done to make sure I did what I was supposed to. There is no drilling required. Just spray some WD-40 in the holes, clean with a bristle-brush (I used an old baby bottle-cleaning brush - the small one) and screw them in. I found it was helpful to disconnect the rubber mount from the tailpipe. It doesn't move very much, but it's just enough to slide the mount in to place. If you're installing it alone, do yourself a favor and balance the other side on a bucket. You can try and be a "man", but you'll get tired pretty quickly while trying to hold a 50 lb hitch and screw in a bolt with one hand! Hitch is very low profile and SOLID. UPS beat the box up pretty badly, but it didn't damage the hitch at all. I would recommend to anyone and everyone. What at great line of products, and fast shipping! (NOTE: You need to have a torque wrench for any of these installations! Borrow one or buy one, but you NEED it) 198290

I really liked the look of this hitch with the circular tube. I would prefer that it was tucked in under the bumper a little more, but it's not an eye-sore. It was fairly easy to install with a little bit of elbow grease. I first thought the hitch wasn't wide enough as the holes did not line up. Getting the bolts screwed in was a challenge. If I still had my lift I could have used that to push up and hold the hitch in place so that the holes lined up. Once it's installed, it works great. 150504


Ive had no issues with this hitch. Ive only used it for my bike rack and have not tried to tow anything. But, Im sure it can handle it. The hitch still looks great with no rusting.

Received the package sooner than expected which is awesome. The one end of the rack has already broken through the packaging box. Maybe in the future, a tiny bit more padding like stuffed boxes or styrofoam may prevent the content to sway inside the box during transit. Nonetheless, the rack remained intact. Install. Thanks for the video on your site. Install was very easy. Fit like a glove and aligned perfectly. Installation time could have probably taken less than 30 mins if I didn't have to scour for the right sized tools. I use mainly metric size (bike mechanic stuff) so I had to match the closest metric with the english spec. Otherwise, squeaky clean and pain-free install. Tips: I used the packaging box as a place setter. I placed the rack on top of the empty box (unflattened) and used that to guide the rack underneath the van. I used an old thick phone-book sized catalog to wedge underneath the rack to raise it and line up with the holes. I moved the box with the rack on top as needed to fine tune the alignment. Easy peasy. 176382

Hitch arrived in a couple of days; was a breeze to install, and cost less than half of what the dealer would have charged for the part (not including installation), and the dealer part came with a 26-page installation manual and would have required cutting the bumper (for which no template was required). 89396


We have had no problems whatsoever with the hitch we have used it on several long trips and many shorter ones, and have not had a single problem. I would definitely buy this again.

This is not the first nor will it be the last hitch I have purchased from etrailer. if this one performs like the previous ones then it is a durable solid hitch which hauls dirt bikes, kayaks, dirt, rocks, mulch & sand on short and long hauls without problems. If that isn't enough reason to get an etrailer hitch then they really look good, well secured & tucked away under both of our Honda Odyssey's. Easy to understand install instructions & neat little tools to make life better during the installation plus the online video if one needs them. All of the above and FAST shipping! 233285

The original hitch arrived packed loosely in plastic and was damaged with lots of scrapes and exposed metal. I contacted customer service and they sent a second hitch with no questions asked. The second hitch arrived well packed in a cardboard box with bracing inside. The hitch was is excellent condition. It took me a little under an hour to install the hitch myself from opening the box to putting away the tools. You can install the hitch without lowering the exhaust, but you have to be a little creative with the wrench angles. I was also able to reinstall the plastic fairing on the drivers side by trimming it back a bit to get around the hitch. There's a little reinforcing rib that is perfect to cut along. Overall I am pleased with the hitch (we'll see how it goes through a few winters though) and the ease of installation. While the condition of the first hitch was disappointing, I am happy with how the situation was handled. 41613

Box was a bit damaged, no big deal... everything else was great. Firstly the customer service when you make the order! Amazing and perfect X10! Online vs calling? Calling expedites the shipment by one day. And the customer service people who answer the phone are very happy and pleasant type of people that answer questions like they know what they are talking about and with opinion. I installed the hitch and it took 20 or maybe 15 minutes... The video is almost exact. If I made the installation vid / I would fine-tune a couple of minor points. It is heavy and awkward to hold when beneath the van while threading the bolts...getting a friend to help is suggested for this reason and to have beers with after. A stubby Phillips is mandatory to take the panel off / no work around this? Get a stubby and a friend is what is missing from the vid. I recommend your company to every one including my granny. Thank you! 220332

the hitch came exactly when they said it would . I tried to order on Amazon and thy could not guarantee when the hitch would be delivered , I almost gave up on my vacation plans . Then I found etrailer. They saved my trip. The hitch was a prefect fit and it installed in less than 40 minutes. The price was excellent and the product couldn't be better made. Thanks etrailer!!! 222879


this hitch has been made my vacations so much better . Thanks

The hitch arrived without issue. The box had no damage or any look of being mishandled. Installed the hitch with reletive ease although a second hand could have been used in certain instances. I chose not to mess with moving the exhaust. We are excited to utillize the hitch when we embark on our annual camping trip! 133369

Despite being easy to install (all hitches for the Odyssey are that way), the design is simply lacking when compared to the Hidden Hitch or Draw-Tite. The Odyssey has three factory mount points on each side. The Curt hitch only uses four of the factory mounts, their fifth requires you to snake a bolt up. While not difficult, it's simply a poor design compared to the alternatives (they use all six factory mounts) Unfortunately I didn't notice this until the hitch arrived (my bad, and in to way a reflection on etrailer, their service was great). Chris 18443


Thank you so much Chris for this review. I was leaning towards the Curt trailer hitch because of the extra 12 inch of clearance that it gives over the Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite which both have 12 inches as opposed to 12 1/2. But, now that I have verified how many bolts are used, I will probably go with Hidden Hitch. Thanks again.

Everything went smoothly and all parts and pieces came as desired. Had to tap rusted frame nuts but otherwise project completed without any issues. 194651


Doing well! Only complaint is that on my van 02 Honda Odyssey, the tail pipe is too close to the hitch so it rattles when starting the van or when it is idling. Otherwise going well and happy with price, shipping, and customer service.

It works very well. We occasionally rent a small trailer from U-Haul and pick up or deliver a motorcycle. The hitch and wiring harness are very easy to use and perform reliably. If asked, I would recommend them both to friends.Thank you for following up!

Order came in quick, but the sides of the box weren't reinforced so part of hitch came out on one side. No visible damage, but some packaging on the sides would help. Moving the box was easy since it incorporates offset handles. Install was pretty painless, but the nut and bolts require torque. Important that you have a sizable torque wrench and enough leverage. I had to put a pipe around the handle of my wrench to get the last few ft-lbs on. And a tip in case you're installing by yourself like I was, use wood blocks or an extra jack stand to help lift the driver size of the hitch into place while you maneuver around the exhaust. Removing the exhaust hanger is not necessary, but it may help especially if you don't have the right extensions for your socket. 395739

I ordered the hitch receiver to attach a bike rack to our '08 Honda Odyssey. I got tired of the marks the bike tires and pedals left on the vehicle due to rubbing with our old rack. The hitch receiver was delivered very quickly and installation was simple. The installation videos posted on were helpful and accurate. The printed instrutions included with the product were clear and accurate to my vehicle. It took me about 35 minutes to get the hitch installed. The qaulity of the hitch receiver exceeds my current needs as I am only attaching a bike rack and not towing anything heavy, but it seems to be extremely well-constructed. The steel seems to be very heavy-duty and all of the welds look to be well-done. 43881

Product shipment arrived promptly and box was in decent shape. The instructions were accurate and complete. The parts bag was complete. The 2007 Honda Odyssey that this hitch was installed to was nine years old with 125K miles located in the rust belt. So I had to spend considerable time spraying rust dissolver and using a wire battery brush to clean the factory weld nuts. That worked. Spray yours now, get that action going. The hitch bolts installed properly. I had the assistance of my two teen sons to lift and align the hitch while I got a bolt threaded on each side. The rest of the bolts went smoothly. I did not install a wiring harness as I am only either attaching a bike rack or hitch step. 290682

The product fits the van just as described. Well made. Shipping was great. The online. I personally had some trouble getting this on my 2012 Odyssey because the passenger side bolt receivers were full of tons of junk. I spent two hours cleaning out the holes so that the bolts would go in. Aside from that, which is really an issue with my car, the installation was a snap. It probably took about 40 minutes total. I was also able to get the flashing back on the van by making a small inch wide cut in with an exacto knife. All in all, I'm very satisfied, but cleaning out those ports made this an awful process. Buyer be prepared! Thanks!! I would definitely buy from you again! 280790

This product and website are amazing! Best bang for your buck. I called Honda to get a quote for the tow hitch and was quoted 1200$ for labor and parts. I bought this hitch for only 130 and some change and put it on myself very quickly. It took no more than 20 minutes if you have all the right tools. Website was very helpful in explaining everything and it shipped in 3 days! I am very pleased with my experience. I never do reviews or any kind of feed back, but felt like I had to I was so impressed. 274625

This product arrived in a timely fashion in good condition. Its main purpose is towing my small 3500# utility trailer for general purpose. It fit my 2003 Honda Odyssey simply, although I had to take it to a machine shop due to issues with the vehicle, not the hitch. I have also towed my nephews 14' enclosed trailer with no issues. He was concerned about my using my van suggesting that I use his Chev Blazer... this hitch made light work of it and I explained to him that I would rather tow his trailer loaded with my van than empty with his blazer!! The hitch is sturdy and I give it 5 stars!! (sorry but I have no pictures, but it is a very clean installation!) 372093

I was quite satisfied with the product. Although the 2-layer cardboard box was pierced by the end of the hitch when it arrived, it was undamaged. I like the way it looks on my van, too. The video was invaluable in helping me install the unit, especially the part with the fish wire, since details in the photos in the printed instructions were hard to make out. I had requested a hitch for a 2014 Odyssey but was a bit concerned that since the latest video showed an installation on a 2013, it might not apply to the 2014 model. A note somewhere that the design is unchanged would have allayed those fears. Otherwise, a great product, website, and company. 134757

The product was as advertised: easy to install. But since I have an older (2004) van, it did take time to prepare the bolt holes for bolts. I had to pick up a 12mm tap to chase the threads, and with lots of oil made the job much smoother. The install time for novices was not that far off after the threads were prepped properly. Also, I had trouble working around the exhaust /tail pipe and had to prop it out of the way with a short piece of 2x4. All in all the product is just what I needed for trips to the land fill and city compost facility. Thank you for a well built product that was fun to install. Ron H. 248353

I'm very please with the purchase. The web site is great with all the info you need. The installation videos are super. I did the installation myself with no problem. The only discrepancy was the size of the bolts in the instruction where different, but it fit perfectly. I called to double check the Torque spec. and customer service answer the question. The shipping was very fast as well. 370095

Product order process was smooth. The packaging was poor and hitch arrived damaged with paint removed down to metal. Basically has to repaint it fresh out of the box. Not what I would have expected for a package that traveled 1 day 350 miles. Probably not etrailer's fault, but Curt has improvements to make. Highly recommend for installations on older Honda Odyssey's in the Midwest that you prepare yourself to tap the existing screw holes. No matter how much wire brush and blaster you try, it will be easier and faster to tap the hole using the same screw size to clear the threads. 384373

For a DIY, this was one of the best installation instructions that I have ever used. It was complete and worked just like a person would want it to be. This hitch was installed on a 2013 Honda Odyssey. It took a little bit of spreading for the bolts to line up, other then that, it was an easy installation. This is being used for light weight towing such as a trailer for hauling canoes. 352870

We are really pleased with this hitch. It was easy to install and looks great on the Odyssey. The most difficult part of installation was scrubbing out the mounting holes on the van. We ended up using some wire brushes from a gun cleaning kit. Just takes a little elbow grease (why they don't put plastic plugs in while being manufactured is beyond me-it can't save that much money). 395991

Overall very happy with trailer hitch. Hitch had some scratches on it that I touched up with spray paint to prevent from rusting. I ran into a problem while tightening the bolts on passenger side due to significant rusting of the weld nuts. The weld nut broke off of frame and I had to replace them with carriage bolts. Tommy at etrailer was a great help at finding a solution and walking me through the process. Amazing customer service!! Now that the hitch is on it looks great and is snug to the bumper which is what I wanted. Would highly recommend etrailer to anyone!! 388191

Easy to install, looks and feels very well-made! I bought this hitch to install for a 5-bike rack for the family and it did not disappoint. I was able to install in about 30 min with the help of my 6-yr old (who helped pass me bolts and washers and click start and pause on the installation video :) The price was great and the etrailer site and support has been greater!! I've received personal email followup from George J informing me of when the hitch shipped and when it was delivered, as well as a link to videos and instructions. Thanks etrailer, I'll be back!! 388946

Second receiver hitch I have gotten from etrailer, both were exactly as advertised. I installed.the Curt hitch on my Odyssey in about 30 minutes. Did not have anyone to assist me so I used a car ramp to position the passenger side end while I started the bolts on the driver side. The plastic cover on the Odyssey, driver's side, did not fit back in but I believe I can modify it just a bit and it will fit securely back in place. This is a very easy install for anyone who can turn a wrench. Do not be intimidated, I did not not even need to jack the van up. 191580

This hitch is awesome! Warning - If your vehicle is more than a few years old, you absolutely need to get a tap and clear the threads in the frame. I tried to use the bolt to clear the threads of rust (didn't have a tap) and I ended up shearing the bolt off and having to modify and fabricate another carriage bolt mount similar to the one that comes with the hitch (so there are two mounting points on my installation using a carriage bolt). If I didn't have that speed bump, the installation would have been nice and easy. 373531

Hitch arrived as scheduled, no issues with delivery but the one end of of the carton was damaged in transit. All pieces were in the box. Hitch was pretty easy to put on. and it looks great on the Honda Odyssey. I did not wire any electrical because I intend to use it for a cargo carrier. Great product. Heavy duty. Expect no issues. Installation was done by the local tire company I deal with because I could not get the back end of the Honda off the ground to install it. Very easy, less than 30 minutes. 281600

The Curt hitch was shipped in a very sturdy heavy-weight cardboard box - about the size of a bicycle box. It arrived within a few days of ordering - since I ordered late on Saturday, it didn't ship out until Monday. The hitch arrived on Wednesday, with no problems - the box was intact, no damage, perfect. I still need to complete the installation of the hitch on my van, but with the help of the online videos, I don't anticipate any problems. Once the installation is completed, I will provide another update. 342906

I am very happy with my purchase. The Curt trailer hitch arrived sooner than expected and in perfect condition. The hitch was well packed in a cardboard box so there was no damage during shipping- this was one of my biggest concerns when ordering. Etrailer did a great job of letting me know the status of my order. Installing the hitch was easy and took less than a half and hour from the time I started to get the tools out until I was done cleaning up. I would not hesitate to purchase from Etrailer again. 47348

Very solid hitch for my 2006 Honda Odyssey. About as hidden as I could hope for as the van has no space to tuck one out of sight with the tub for the folding rear seat right behind the bumper. Receiver sits about an inch further under the car than the bumper, so I have never banged my shin on it. Easy install. 383516

We bought this Hitch Receiver for our 2008 Honda Odyssey and were very pleased. The product shipped very quickly and we also bought the recommended wiring harness. The instructions and videos made it very easy to install. The only issue we had installing had nothing do due with the product but by trying to install on a 2008 which never had a hitch receiver installed so there was 9 years of dirt/salt/buildup in the holes to attach it. Took some time to clear them up but once attached it worked great. 281269

The product came quickly and worked well. I ran into 2 issues; first there was some kind of tar type material on the chassis where the hitch bolted to it. This prevented the hitch from laying flush against the chassis. The second issue was screwing the bolts into the chassis all the way. I got to a point where I couldn't tighten it any more but there was a small gap between the bolt head and the hitch. I used washers to eliminate the gap but I probably should have cleaned out the hole to begin with. 255114

My Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver came VERY fast. Instructions and videos were extremely helpful and made the installation go very quickly. It took me longer to clean out the existing holes on the van, than it did to actually install the hitch. Wiring could not have been any easier. I will finally be able to haul my trailer and bikes. I cannot stress enough how great it was to work with etrailer. I don't buy hitches every day, but Anything automotive in the future will be from etrailer. 12562

My order arrived very promptly. Hardware included a bolt that was poorly threaded which I replaced with one I purchased from the local hardware store. Installation was fairly easy, I wished I had a hoist and an extra set of hands. I do believe some of the other hitch designs are better. Had I looked closer at all of the products, I may have chosen the Hidden Hitch unit instead. However, for the bike rack use and light towing I intend to use this for, I am sure it will work just fine. 35833

This was an easy install on my Odyssey van: Lift one side, get a screw in, lift the other side, get a screw in, install rest of hardware, and torque everything down. My 1up bike rack folds up without interference when I pull the rack out of the receiver maybe 1/2 inch from fully forward. 407439

Order was delivered in timely manner and in appropriate packaging. I did the installation myself, with a few ordinary tools, following the directions. The fit was perfect, and everything went fluidly. Went back and tightened the bolts again a week later, before our long weekend road trip. Used it for a 5 hour roundtrip camping trip with a hitch-mounted 4-bike rack. The hitch and bike rack worked great, solidly. Would buy again and buy from again. 225792

It fits Honda Odyssey 2012 just perfect. The installation is very easy if you follow my advice. DO NOT REMOVE THE EXHAUST!!!!!! You have enough room to slide the hitch trailer in without removing anything. I did remove it by instructions and it was impossible to put it back with the Trailer Hitch Receive mounted. I wasted 30 minutes trying to put everything back together. Etrailer should rewrite the instructions. Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with this product. 219295

The tow bar arrived quickly and as others had mentioned the box had a couple of holes/cuts in it but the product was not damaged where the holes were. The middle of the tow bar did have a couple of light scratches but those appear to be unrelated to the damaged box. I was amazed how easy it was to install. I'm sure one person could do the install but it helps having an extra set of hands. Seems like a well designed sturdy product and I cannot wait to test it. 359388

  • Recommended Hitch with Best Ground Clearance for 2013 Honda Odyssey
  • As you can see by the photo I have edited for you, the Draw-Tite and Curt hitches available for your Odyssey are all pretty similarly designed. When we installed both hitches on a 2013 Odyssey, we found that the Curt # C13068 had about a 1/2 inch greater ground clearance (12-1/2 inches) versus 12 inches for the Draw-Tite # 75270 models. The receiver of the Draw-Tite hitches are recessed a bit more under the vehicle, but neither of the hitches will extend past the bumper, and therefore...

  • Cleaning Rusty Bolt Holes to Install Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13068 on 2002 Honda Odyssey
  • I want to start by thanking you again for your recent order. We appreciate your business. When it comes to installing the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, # C13068, on your 2002 Honda Odyssey, it is best to just clean out the bolt holes on your frame instead of using a tap. You will want to start by soaking the bolt holes on your frame with a penetrating lubricant like UltraLube, # L10444, or WD-40. Let the lubricant soak in and then use a wire brush, like part # 814092, to scrub out the...

  • Fixing Broken Weld Nuts on 2006 Honda Odyssey Installing a CURT Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • The weld nuts were probably still dirty, when you were installing the hitch which caused the weld nut to brake off when putting torque on it. If you have not already installed the other bolts, you will want to clean them out with WD-40 and wire brush (see video link). What you will want to do is take some vice grips to hold the head of the bolt in place, then take an angle grinder with a cut off wheel or a reciprocating saw to cut the bolt.

That install video is linked for you. I recommend Draw-Tite Class III hitch # 75270 for its no-drill installation and substantial tongue weight capacity - 675-lbs.

The Curt Class II you mentioned, part # C12031 offers slightly more clearance at 11-1/2 inches. Low ground clearance is kind of the nature of the beast with the Odyssey.
