Rugged, Matte Black Finish

The sturdy steel construction is protected with a matte black finish for added durability. This unique powder coating gives etrailer hitches a carbide-like appearance and a rugged look that sets them apart from traditional glossy hitches. In addition to being rust and corrosion resistant, the tough matte coating hides dirt, scuffs, and dings better than a glossy finish.

This is the right hitch for my 2008 Honda CR-V but the left side bracket is slightly bent either from manufacturing or shipping (that side bracket had torn through box). You can see the passenger side bracket is straight but the driver side one is not in these photos. I couldn't line up the holes no matter what I did so I will have to return this one for another one that is straight.

A week ago etrailer told me how to fix the bent arm. The side arms are softer than they look. Once I did that it went on easily. Good hitch but poor packaging = 4 stars.

Well made and fit perfectly. Video showing how to make your own tap was very helpful. Cleaning threads in weld nuts is by far the most time consuming part of the install. Make sure you are cleaning the correct weld nuts required for attachment! I cleaned 2 that were not needed. 2011 Honda C-RV



by:

Finally made time to put it on and after difficulties with the bolt holes on my vehicle being badly rusted I got it on. Looks great and feels very solid. Fairly easy install. I highly recommend spraying and cleaning out your connections ahead of time as mine were very corroded.



by:

you guys did a great job the packaging could be improved because the hitch broke through the cardboard box.



by:

Great product great price great service EZ install and wiring too ! Thanks again.



by:

Arrived quickly after purchasing and all the parts were in place. The installation was straightforward and the video helped. A two person job in my opinion. Hardest part was holding the hitch in the right place to get the screws in. Very sturdy and happy with the product! 2011 Honda CRV

Easy to install, works great with my hitch-mounted bike rack.



by:

My 2011 CR-V only has 55K miles on it (2023), so the rubber for the exhaust hangers was still easily removed. This hitch, like at least 3 others I've installed from E-trailers, was perfectly aligned, all hardware I need was included, and simple to install. Needed a bit of help to initially lift it and get the bolts started, but very straight forward install.

Fit well. Grinder marks on tubing not covered with paint

excellent customer service. fast delivery and a perfect fit.very satisfied.



by:

Installation was easy, hitch seems solid (haven't used it yet). Packaging was sub-par, there were scratches on the hitch when it arrived, but, it's a hitch, so I'm not all that bothered by it.

As advertised. Product came in perfect condition and delivered in two days. Perfect fit in our 2011 Honda CRV. Install instructions and videos were spot on. After dropping muffler and managing to get the hitch in place all it took was 6 nuts/bolts. About 60 minutes all in.



by:

It was a pain to get my muffler off but the actual installation of the hitch was fine. This is a 2 person job. I would not recommend installing this yourself

Overall good experience with etrailer.com and with the install of this hitch. First the not-so good. Hitch arrived w/o mounting hardware and instructions. There was a tear in the box so its possible it fell out. etrailer responded the same day and sent out the hardware. The hitch itself did have some scratches on it, some down to the metal. I've done a few of these inexpensive hitches in the past and have found the powder coating doesn't hold up well if you live in the rust belt (New England) so prepare to wire brush it and coat it with Rustoleum once a season.

Now the good. Installation instructions were simple and easy to follow. All the holes lined up and the hardware was the proper size. The hitch is sturdy and is a perfect fit for my 2011 CRV.

I do have a couple of install tips. If you're not familiar with dropping the muffler it can be tricky. I had to look it up. Basically spray some soapy water on the mounts and work them off with your hands and a screwdriver. I was able to rest the muffler w/o having to support it. The nut threads on my car were rusted and I could not thread the bolts in. I picked up a tap on [online vendor] for $[XX] and tapped the threads on all 4 bolts to fix that problem.



by:

THE QUALITY OF THE UNIT ITSELF SEEMS OUTSTANDING, BUT I ONLY GAVE A 4-STAR RATING BECAUSE THE FINE POWDER-COATING YOU ADVERTISE WAS SCRATCHED AND/OR WORN DOWN IN SEVERAL PLACES, THUS EXPOSING THE STEEL TO THE ELEMENTS AND RUST. I HAD TO PAINT IT WITH RUSTOLEUM. PACKAGING WAS VERY INADEQUATE.



by:

Installed on a 2007 CR-V. Great fit and finish, and is more affordable and was easier to install than the other brands in which the bumper needs to be removed. Lori and the whole team have the best customer service/support that I have experienced in years. Thanks!

They did what they said they would do, thanks

  • What if Bolt Holes Don't Line up With etrailer Hitch on 2008 Honda CR-V
    You're right in that during the shipping process, trailer hitches will sometimes come "flexed" so the bolt holes won't completely line up, and that is something that can happen with any hitch, including the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e39AR for your CR-V. There are a number of remedies for this, and all require flexing it back into position. I have added a link below to a help article called "My Trailer Hitch Doesn't Fit" which has some really good options of things you can do if...

  • What is the Weight of the etrailer Trailer Hitch for a 2009 Honda CR-V
    The etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e39AR that fits your 2009 Honda CR-V has a shipping weight of 34 lbs. You'll reduce that by a few pounds to get the actual weight of the hitch itself.

  • Will The Trailer Hitch Receiver and Wiring From a 2005 Honda CR-V fit The 2007 CR-V?
    You will need a new etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e39AR for your 2007 Honda CR-V. The design of the receiver has changed from the Receiver # e69AR which fits your 2005 CR-V. You will also need a new T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118427 as the factory side connector this connects to has also changed.

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2011 Honda CR-V
    Of course! I recommend using the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e39AR for your 2011 Honda CR-V because it's a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver plus it has the clean looking matte black finish. The 2" receiver means you have access to more accessories and the matte black finish looks cleaner and is more durable than the standard glossy black finish we see on all of the other hitches. Then for a bike rack I really like the Kuat Transfer V2 # KU84FR because it's compatible with a wide...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Fit For 2010 Honda CR-V
    You said receiver and hitch, though that is one and the same, which is what I believe you were asking. And the correct fit for a trailer hitch receiver on your 2010 Honda CR-V is the Trailer Hitch Receiver # e39AR. Then if you were planning on doing some towing and needed a 4-way wiring harness the right fit for your '10 CR-V is the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # C55106.

  • Recommend Platform Bike Rack For Childrens Bikes
    If you are just wanting a 2-bike carrier then I would look into Hollywood Racks Destination Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches # HLY94FR. This is a very versatile bike carrier that has adjustable cradles to attach onto the bike frames, thus making it compatible with many different styles of bikes including children's and women's bikes. It does not interfere with the wheels so it will also work with bikes that have fenders or baskets. This bike rack is also very lightweight at...

  • Best Hitch for a 2011 Honda CR-V
    I pulled the manual for your 2011 Honda CRV. It says your vehicle tops out at 1,500 lbs for towing capacity so paying extra for a 4,500 lbs capacity hitch like item # 75547 doesn't make sense. Adding this high of a capacity hitch won't give you anymore than the 1,500 lbs your CRV is rated for. The best hitch for both value and ability is going to be the etrailer Hitch item # e39AR. This hitch is custom fit and bolts to your 2011 Honda CR-V with included hardware. This is our house brand...

  • Trailer Hitch Weight for a 2011 Honda CR-V
    I'd be happy to help! All of the hitches for your 2011 Honda CR-V weigh relatively the same when it comes to the different classes, and while the Class I hitches definitely weight lighter I recommend using a Class III hitch since they have a 2" receiver and can handle a wider variety of accessories. Out of the hitches listed below I recommend the Draw-Tite Hitch # 75547 since it's a Class III hitch with a weight of about 27 lbs. Here are the rest of the hitches: Class I Draw-Tite -...
