Rugged, Matte Black Finish

The sturdy steel construction is protected with a matte black finish for added durability.

In addition to being rust and corrosion resistant, the tough matte coating hides dirt, scuffs, and dings better than a glossy finish.

I am very satisfied with etrailer and the Receiver Hitch I purchased from them for my 2018 Acura MDX. The package arrived quickly and the box and its contents were in perfect condition. I was able to install the product myself (without a lift or any other person helping), and I am 72 years old. I highly recommend etrailer and their products!

So glad I found this hitch, and especially etrailer.com. Install was simple. 6 bolts. I did it by myself without any issues. In my case I just want to be able to use my bike rack and hitch haul, and don't need any wiring. This is the way to go! etrailer has great resources, and I LOVE that it's all on the same page and I don't have to go search for it. A++ on all counts!!

Perfectly. I am really glad I shopped etrailer instead of having a shop install this hitch.

2019 Acura MDX

This hitch was a perfect fit for our 2019 Acura MDX hybrid. Although the MDX hybrid is not rated for towing, it is already prepped to receive a hitch. We won't be towing anything, but installed this to carry our bikes. Therefore didn't need the harness for lights and brake controllers. This was a simple install and all parts and instructions were included. Our MDX is essentially new, so the mounting nuts, which are factory install and pre-welded to the frame, needed no cleaning. If dirty, a simply wire brush and a few spritzes of water should clean those out. Overall, it took about 10 minutes to unpack and install. My 16yo son and I picked a side, slid under the car, supported the hitch (about 50 lbs.) on our knees and screwed in the bolts. Once torqued to spec, the hitch was rock solid. Overall, this seems to be an excellent product, perfect for our limited needs.


Comments
After a year, the hitch continues to do exactly what its supposed to, provide a secure means to attach our bike rack to our SUV. The Acura MDX hybrid is not rated for towing, but there are no restrictions limiting the use of a hitch mounted bike rack. In fact, all mounting points are provided. Accordingly, we installed the hitch as described in my prior review without any difficulty. After a year of regular use, it remains rock solid. No hesitation recommending this hitch.

2020 Acura MDX

I am a 50 year old banker. I wanted to get a new hitch on my 2020 Acura MDX AWD. Unfortunately, Uhaul and few other places had a back install wait time of 3-4 weeks. I watched the video on etrailer, ordered the hitch, and installed it myself in under 20 minutes. It was simple! 6 bolts, put one on one side then slide the muffler rub knob out othe way by one inch to get the hitch in place. It aligned perfectly and with my 22mm socket wrench I tighened everything up and it was done! Save $100!!!!

Quick free shipment and fair price. It’s also nice to talk to a US based company with great customer service on the phone. Nobody had a 2” Curt trailer hitch for my Acura MDX so the only option was etrailer’s brand. I had it installed by a local mechanic and he liked the quality and ease of installation of this tow bar. It only took him 40 minutes to attach the hitch and install the wiring harness. Thank you for coming through etrailer!

Fit perfectly, only challenge was getting the 139lb-ft of torque with my 16 inch torque wrench while laying on my back! I had been concerned about tire clearance on my 2017 Honda Pilot, but it fits well.

It was perfect for my Honda Pilot 2016. Took it to North Carolina from Orlando, with 4 bikes on a bike rack and no issues. Looks nicer than others, very discrete. I installed it with a friend in 25’. I bought a cover/lid to protect it from corrosion and for a nicer finish :)

I ordered a hidden hitch for our Honda Pilot. I've been pleased with the performance. I basically use it as a hitch for bike rack. It's easy to use and most importantly easy to install the security equipment. I was actually most impressed with the customer support. I installed the hitch and was having problems finding the right alignment for the bolt holes. I had convinced myself that I had the wrong hitch. A single call to the technical customer support center and the problem was over and the hitch installed. Thanks Oh and I think it makes more sense to send out the survey after the product has been in use for a period of time. I find the surveys that one receives after about a week to be a waste of time.

The hitch was shipped promptly after ordering, and etrailer personnel advised me immediately. It arrived on the day it was supposed to. The carton was damaged due to the weight of the hitch, but the hitch was in perfect shape. It won’t get installed for another month but I’ve watched the videos and don’t expect any problems. Photos will follow when it’s installed.


Comments
Installation with 2 guys was fairly easy. Before attempting it, I purchased a thread tap to run into the factory threaded holes in order to clean out the old paint, and the rust that had accumulated there in the previous 6 years. Otherwise it would have been a real struggle to install and tighten the bolts. The hitch looks good and works well. Installation of the wiring harness went well thanks to the detailed instructions.

This is my second hitch from etrailer. Just bought a 2021 Honda Pilot. Given the ease and success of the first hitch I bought from etrailer for my 2013 Mazda CX-9, I knew where to go. etrailer didn't disappoint. got the hitch within a few days. clear instructions. relatively easy installation (warning: the hitch is heavy and it takes a few tries for the bolts to screw-in). Thanks etrailer!

Installed quickly and works great. I had it on the MDX just 30 minutes after it was delivered on the porch. I used a small Igloo Playmate (on its side) to prop up one side while bolting the first side. One man job for this skinny-armed cyclist.

Kurt trailer hitch looks to be an excellent product. Installation was very straight forward. A bit awkward to install without a second person, but can be done. Was a bit disappointed with communication with etrailer.com. Product was listed as being in stock, however this was not the case from their vendor. Made several phone calls and sent several e-mails and it was nearly impossible to receive a reply. Additionally, if you call them, be prepared to spend an inordinate amount of time on hold.

Hitch fit perfectly on my 2019 Honda Pilot. Easy to install. Had to get a better torque wrench to get the bolts correctly tightened. Certainly easier to do on a lift, but was able to do it in my driveway with a 5 gallon bucket and some plywood to hold the other end up while I got the bolts in. Very well constructed.

This hitch is performing very well. Built like a tank.

Fits 2021 Honda Pilot perfectly. Recommend 2nd helper installing, but did OK myself with 2 floor jacks and a 2x4. Challenge #2 was 139 ft/lbs of torque on the six 22mm bolts, but finally did OK with 2ft pipe extension on my torque wrench.

Installed on a 2019 Honda Pilot Touring. Worked out perfectly! Good price, quick delivery, quality product, easy installation. The etrailer customer service person was very helpful with my order as well. The hitch fit well around the spare tire, and is well concealed under the car. Our vehicle has the feature where you kick under the car to open the rear hatch. This feature doesn't work now, but I never used it anyways.

This is a great fit and a super easy install (2019 Honda Pilot EX-L)! You can't really tell it's there. However, I think it's helpful to know the tools I used to make super easy: - We were 2 people - I used a floor jack and stands so that we can pull the jack once car is elevated - This sucker is heavy, so we used the floor jack to give it a lift - Secured the 6 bolts to the frame. we used an air wrench except for one bolt I did with a regular wrench because the exhaust pipe was in the way. - Done! (it took less than 30 mins)



- e98840
by:

Great quality and easy to install watching the etrailer how to video which was specific to my car. The only downside was that the box it was shipped in was damaged on arrival. Luckily nothing fell out. There were some minor scratches but on the parts installed under the car and hidden.



- e98840
by:
2021 Honda Pilot

The hitch is surprisingly heavy but looks very solid and strong. The only reason I gave 4 stars is that hitch does not fit perfectly. Spare tire did not fit back after hitch installation as exactly as it fit before. It is not a big deal, spare tire is secure, however not perfectly.

None of the hitches we offer would work with the 20 inch spare unless the spare is removed and stored eleswhere.

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack For 2019 Acura MDX
    We do have hitches that fit the 2019 Acura MDX but the full size spare tire does need to be removed. The P245/50R20 wheel has a 20 inch diameter and all of the hitches available for your vehicle only install with 18 inch or smaller wheel.

  • Solution for Trailer Hitch for 2020 Honda Pilot with 20 inch Spare Wheel/Tire
    All of the hitches we offer including the # e98840 won't be able to fit a 20 inch spare with the hitch installed. So you have a couple options. You could put the spare in the rear cargo area (you probably won't want to do that), you could keep the spare in your garage (where it will do you no good), or you could track down a smaller size spare from a Honda dealer so that you can have the hitch installed and keep a spare on you.

  • How Does 7-Way Typically Attach to 2019 Honda Pilot with etrailer Hitch Installed
    Due to how the etrailer.com hitch part # E98840 installs and how the rear fascia covers most of the hitch you'd have to use a 7-way bracket like the part # 18138 attached to the lower portion of the rear fascia.
