Everything Needed to Tow With 2016 Honda Accord


Hello, Can you provide some guidance on which hitch and accessories I would need for a 2016 Honda Accord Sport? I will only be towing items with trailer under 1100 lbs.


Expert Reply:

I took a look at the owner's manual for a 2016 Honda Accord and though you will be able to tow a trailer, please keep in mind that the maximum your Accord can tow is 1,000 lbs.

To do so you would need to start with a trailer hitch, and I recommend the Draw-Tite # 24899 which has a 1-1/4" receiver and is a bolt-on installation so there will be no drilling into your Accord's frame; I have linked a video showing an install of this hitch on a '16 Accord for you to take a look at.

In addition to a hitch you are also going to need to add a wiring harness to power your trailer's lights. If your Accord Sport is a Coupe you need Wiring Harness # 118695 and if it is a Sedan you need Wiring Harness # 118684.

Finally, you will need a ball mount and hitch ball to connect your trailer to. The recommended ball mount for your hitch is the Draw-Tite # 3593 and depending on your trailer's coupler you will use 1-7/8" hitch ball # 19256 or 2" hitch ball # 19258.
