We have everything you would need to tow a small trailer with your 2013 Acura MDX. First let's start with a hitch. For that the Curt part # 13354 is the most popular option and would work well so we would recommend it for you. I attached an install video for this product for you to check out as well.

Since you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.

For trailer wiring you would ten want the part # C56038.

A transmission cooler may not be totally necessary, but it would be great insurance to help preserve the life of the transmission. The most popular option we have is the # D13503. This cooler measures 11" Wide x 8-3/4" tall x 7/8" deep and as long as you have roof for it in front of your radiator would be a great option.
