Recommended Towing Set-up For 2015 Honda CRV to Tow 2017 Aliner Scout Trailer


I have a 2015 Honda CRV 4 dr, want to buy. 2017 Aliner Scout. I have a trailer hitch installed by Uhaul. Will I be safe towing this camper?

Expert Reply:

Your 2015 Honda CRV has a towing capacity of 1500 lbs max. The 2017 Aliner Scout has an unloaded weight of 1180 lbs with a max carrying capacity of 1320 lbs to give a gvwr of 2500 lbs. As long as you keep the towing weight under 1500 lbs when loaded, you will be able to tow this camper.

If you don't already have the towing setup for this, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 75742. This will give you a sturdy hitch with the ability to use an adjustable ball mount like # BWTS10035B to tow level. This ball mount also has a very cool stowable feature when not in use for a clean look. I recommend the locking hitch pin like # 7683 to secure your ball mount and deter theft.

For wiring, I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118561. This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your Honda CR-V's wiring harness, which is located in your rear cargo area, behind the driver's-side and passenger's-side interior trim panels.

These parts will give you what you need for your 2017 Aliner Scout trailer.
