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 hitch was super easy to install, the videos online were extremely helpful when installing. Make sure that the weld nut threads are clean of rust and debris, as the two on the passenger side of mine were rusted and needed a lot of cleaning. Also putting a bolt in and threading in and out and cleaning with WD 40 helped for a much easier install. The hitch fits up nicely against the bottom of the bumper, there is no reason not to be pleased with this hitch. Great product!

This 2" hitch receiver arrived promptly as promised in excellent condition (only a few minor scratches on the end plates which I attribute to UPS). The installation video was spot on and fitment on my 2016 Honda Odyssey was perfect. However there was an issue with the threads on the more exposed passenger side frame rails. At least one half of the 90 minute installation time was devoted to spraying and wire brushing the threads. It must be noted I live in NY and they are not stingy with the road salt in the winter where every snowfall no matter how much accumulation leaves the roads looking like the Bonneville Salt Flats so the corrosion was not unexpected. In retrospect my time would have been better spent driving to the hardware store and buying a tap. The Eclipse tilting 4 bike rack I purchased from etrailer has perfect clearance so I'm 100% satisfied.


Comments
We have used this receiver mainly with the bike rack loaded with 3 full size mountain bikes without any problems. I purchased the 2 size for stability and have not been disappointed, rock solid.

This hitch is exactly what I needed and easy to install. As some others have said, I did had some issues with dirt/corrosion in the threaded holes. On my Odyssey (2014 LX), only the driver side had a panel covering underneath. On the passenger side, both holes were pretty gunked up. It took me a little while to get it cleaned out enough, but this is all Honda's issue, not the hitch's fault. In the end, it came out great.

Great hitch! It was a little challenging to install myself (but feasible). It’s very solid and has great ground clearance on my 2016 Honda Odyssey. I use it to carry 1-2 bikes with a Kuat bike rack. The only negative thing I have to say about it is that one of the stickers is peeling off after a year.

The hitch is still working great - solid as the day installed!

I have a 2009 odyssey. The holes for the threaded bolts required a lot of cleaning. It took a lot of effort to screw bolts in but I got them in. Initially, I tried attaching the driver side of the hitch first but couldn’t get the passenger side bolts in. The holes on the hitch were a little close for the bolts to seat. An additional 1/8 “ would have made the job easier. I reversed the process and attached the two passenger side bolts first,( above exhaust pipe) Then I was able to get the bolts attached on drivers side. Good support from etrailer

Hitch has been great for a year. I pull a light weight aluminum trailer sometime and a bike carrier sometime.

Very easy to install just like the listing indicates. Took about 30 minutes. All the bolt holes lined up perfectly. The hitch appeared to be made of thick, durable steel. My six year old son and I installed it with no problems. The wiring harness just snapped into the plug behind the molding. No issues

Great, straight forward installation. I debated between the 'hidden' version and the bar version. As far as I can tell from pictures, the OEM hitch is hidden in the center area, but the sides stick down similar to this style, so it's doesn't look that clean. There is a Draw Tite 76025 version that looks to be hidden on the sides as well which gives the cleanest look, but a lot more effort to remove the bumper, etc. This one isn't very noticeable, and hey, it's a mini-van - convenience is more important than looks. I don't believe the Draw Tite gets the hitch up any higher, looking at all the other videos, pictures, etc. So I opted for the etrailer version instead of the Curt, as the price was a bit better. I debated whether I should put the rear end up on floor jacks to give me a bit more room. Feeling lazy, I didn't, and probably should have just to give me a bit more working room. Couple notes that might help - Removing the drivers side underbody panel (that you can discard when finished or reinstall), there's a step where you unscrew a Phillips screw that is tucked in the wheel well. My minivan has the black plastic mudflaps, and even though there is a hole through them to access that screw, I removed the mudflaps - made it way easier to get to (and re-install - I chose to trim the plastic fitting and re-install). Also, on the passenger side, you can work around the exhaust pipe, but it's kind of in the way - I should have pulled it off the hangers (see the Curt hitch video) - would have saved a few curse words and socket extensions, etc. Don't forget the bristle brush to clean the weld nuts. Also, thread the bolts in once without the hitch in place, to make sure they'll go in smoothly. Overall, a pretty easy project to complete. One other plus - the fish-wire bolt installation is brilliant - it does go in as easy as the video shows, and works great. My only complaint is that I wish I had a hoist... :) Good luck!

My hitch was easy to install on my Honda Odyssey due to the video instruction from trailer. The matte black looks great. Took me less than 1 hour. The majority of use will be carrying bikes with an occasional trailer.

2016 Honda Odyssey

Just finished installing the hitch receiver on my 2016 Odyssey. It arrived in great time, and was surprisingly well packaged. The videos were immensely helpful. I did not remove the exhaust from the hangers, which probably would have helped but I managed with some creative wrench angles. My only complaint was that out of the box the holes were just shy of aligned. It took me a good 30-40 minutes more than it should have as I wrestled with the thing, trying to find enough play from side to side that would allow proper threading. I did the whole install on the driveway, no ramps, jacks, or blocks. So my shoulders got a work out... Eventually I grabbed a screwdriver, shoved it through an as-yet unused bolt hole, and leveraged the whole thing outward a bit. That gave me just enough room to get the bolts in place, working from one side to the other. The included wire bolt fishing doodad was fantastic, and got everything aligned quite well. The whole process went fairly well for this novice, and looking at other reviews it seems that the slight misalignment is not uncommon. But the quality of the installation guidance more than made up for the challenge of wrestling it into place.

I own an auto repair shop and have installed many hitches. I have found out that over the years your products have complete instructions, diagrams and correct, quality hardware. When people inquire about us installing a hitch, I always recommend your company. Keep up the good work.

The website is great. Descriptions of items and fit to car are great. Videos showing installation are great. The hitch that I received for my 2015 Honda odessey was in good condition but the holes for the hex bolts did not line up with my under carriage. Off by maybe 1/2 inch. Very frustrating at first but I saw in the comments that this issue happens and the etrailer website has an entire page dedicated to addressing the issue. It took a lot of trial and error but I was able to “straighten” the bar by using their stair ledge approach. Put one end under the lip of a brick stair ledge and pushing down on the opposite end to bend the bar enough to get the bolt holes to line up properly.

I was skeptical when I saw the fish tool and figured I would be cursing and trying over and over. It ended up working amazingly well and was actually easier to bolt than the factory threaded bolt holes. Had the entire thing installed in around 45 minutes.

Packaging wasn't great including allowing the wire brush that I ordered to be packaged directly against this hitch, and so there were several spots where the paint was worn through to the metal. Didn't want to take the time to return and get a new part, as I was needing it very soon. The fit was challenging, as the holes for the hitch were almost an inch wider than the corresponding holes on my vehicle. Took a couple hours of head scratching and trying different approaches to figure out how to make it all work. Once installed (and black paint purchased and applied to cover up the missing paint), it has worked perfectly for me ever since, and the price was good.

Only 5 bolts, and it went on a lot easier than I thought it would be, not bad at all. The videos for the Odyssey were helpful and accurate, and the one bolt I had to use the fish wire for went in easy-peasy. We used a motorcycle jack to lift it up, and that worked really well. Very happy with it!

I talked to your group before I bought this hitch, I also watched a video to see what was needed to do if I wanted to do this myself. I am handy , and have tools.... and after watching the video realize it could be done. I am very thankful for the thorough video showing me step by step on everything from start to finish. The only problem that I got stuck with was the passenger side thread bolt receiver was rusty because of no cover and took some time cleaning it with a wire brush and WD 40. I should have bought the brush they showed in the video .... but got through it anyway. Wish Honda would have put plugs to stop the rust on those two holes , they are there for someone to use and there is nothing to protect them. Overall.... I am happy with etrailer, and all the help from the video and customer service

Great product and deserving of 5 stars. A couple of notes on installation. It took me about an hour and half for the entire job including tow hitch and wiring harness. YouTube videos and the instructions make it seem very easy, and it is in fact very straightforward ......until you have issues with your car. For the tow hitch. I had trouble removing the driver side plastic guard and one of the threaded holes on the passenger side had some significant rust that required a tap. The wiring harness installation is really quite difficult with big hands. My 11 year old daughter saved the day both fishing the harness through the trim panel to the rear fuse box and then also reaching into the back rear corner to attach the grounding strap to the grounding bolt. All-in-all, absolutely worth the five star rating. Just be realistic with your time for installation and be prepared for issues with your car including having the right tools for contingencies.

Working great! No issues and still a 5-star product.

Good rack, great price, poor fit out of the box . Exactly what we need on our minivan; we will use it for a bike rack 99% of the time. Construction looks great, hardware was perfect, shipping container was great. The big issue was fit. When put in place it was obviously short by about 3/8 of an inch, the holes would not line up. Took it off and I noticed the bends in the piece were not completed; they needed to be flatter where it joined against the frame. Given this arrive Friday evening, rather than return it I did the following to flatten it. 1) Take two pipe wrenches and clinch tightly on the flats where it attaches to frame. 2) Lift the hitch up so the wrenches are braced on the ground 3) Using the length of the hitch as a lever, complete the bend on the flat 4) Remove the pipe wrenches and repeat for the other side I was then able to complete installation as per the instructions.

    Weldnuts on vehicles as old as yours are going to be pretty dirty. Your plan of ordering a thread tap at same time as hitch is smart and will save you time as it's the most efficient way to clean dirty weld nuts. The thread tap size you'd need to install the etrailer hitch # E98862 is M12-1.25 which is a pretty standard size but not always same size as every vehicle. The thread tap kit part # PTW8662 is the right size though and would be exactly what you need.

I have attached an installation video for the Hollywood Rack on a 2012 Honda Odyssey you would remove the rack the same way but in reverse. Since you would like to open your rear door with the bike rack installed,...

  • Is Fascia Trimming Required To Install Draw-Tite Hitch On 2014 Honda Odyssey
    In order to install the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76025 on a 2014 Honda Odyssey you"ll need to trim the fascia in the center to allow the receiver tube opening to pass through and above the tail pipe. The reason you must trim the portion of the fascia above the tail pipe is that the hitch will come into contact with this piece if not remove. It is possible not to remove this piece but by not doing so you"ll put stress on other parts of the bumper which can lead to...

  • What Sort Of MPG's Will A 2015 Honda Odyssey Get While Towing
    I do have a device that will help to increase your fuel mileage while towing but unfortunately, I would not be able to give you any sort of accurate estimates on fuel mileage while towing as there are way too many variables involved for this. I recommend you reach out to others on towing forums who have first hand experience with your vehicle. In order to help you improve your fuel mileage you can use the Edge Insight CS2 Comprehensive Gauge Display part # EP84030 which has a feature...

  • Comparing Trailer Hitch Options for a 2015 Honda Odyssey
    The trailer hitch which offers the most amount of ground clearance for a 2015 Honda Odyssey is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76025. That said, it does require removal of the rear bumper so if this is not something you want to do I recommend the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98862. There are few discernable differences between respective Curt, etrailer, and Draw-Tite options. The etrailer hitch however has more of a matte finish which blends in better.

  • How To Install a 7-Way Trailer Connector On a 2016 Honda Odyssey
    I have exactly what you need to add a 7-way trailer connector to a 2016 Honda Odyssey. For this, you'll need to start with a 4-way trailer connector and I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness part # 118521 which is plug-n-play. Then you can convert this to a 7-way using the 7-Way RV Upgrade Kit for Trailer Brake Controller Installation part # ETBC7L. The 7-way is easy to install; just plug the two 4-ways in, ground the white wire, then run the black wire up to the battery but that's...

  • Bike Rack Solutions to Carry a Trike and 3 Bikes with 2011 Honda Odyssey
    The best option for that would be to use the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Bike Rack for 1 Trike or Recumbent and 1 Bike # HR1450Z-E-TRKADP3 to carry the trike and one of the bikes and then a roof rack mounted bike rack option for the other two bikes. You'll need a hitch installed for the bike rack like with # e98862 which fits and gives you a 2 inch hitch with plenty of weight capacity. Then for roof bike racks the Malone Pilot TC part # MPG2103 is a great rack at a great price...

  • How To Carry Two 76lb Kayaks With 2014 Honda Odyssey
    I may have another option, but since your two Old Town Sportsman 106 PDL kayaks weigh 76lbs each, and the roof rack weight capacity on your 2014 Honda Odyssey is 165lbs that only leaves you 13lbs available for the weight of the kayak carriers. Using two of the etrailer J-Style Kayak Carrier - Folding - Universal Mount # e98878 would add roughly 20lbs and would push you over the weight rating of your roof rack. Instead I recommend using a kayak trailer like the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer...

  • What Roof Rack Do You Recommend for a 2010 Honda Odyssey to Transport Surfboards and SUPs?
    I have a solution for you. Unfortunately, we do not carry any roof rack systems that will fit your bare roof on your 2010 Honda Odyssey. With that being said, there is a solution that will work. I recommend the Malone LowMax Trailer with Post Style Carriers for 4 Kayaks - Detachable Tongue - 600 lbs # MAL45FR. The LowMax will allow you to safely transport up to 4 kayaks, surfboards, or SUPs. The LowMax comes with all installation hardware that includes brackets and wiring with 4-flat...

  • Hitch and Wiring Recommendations for a 2011 Honda Odyssey
    I definitely recommend going with a 2 inch receiver, like the etrailer.com # e98862. This will have a higher towing capacity than the 1 1/4 hitches and also gives you more options for accessories like bike racks or cargo carriers. Whereas the hitch refers to the vehicle, the 2 inch coupler refers to the trailer. This is a fairly standard size coupler and will utilize a 2 inch ball like # C40004 that would be installed on a ball mount like the Curt # C93KR, which would then be installed...
