Least Visible 2-Inch Hitch Option for 2018 Honda CR-V


I note that there are two hitch sizes for the CR-V. I also see there are some that are less obvious once mounted on the car. I need a 2-inch size for our bike rack and cargo carrier but is there one that is also not so visible?

The best 2-inch hitch option for your 2018 Honda CR-V is the Curt model # C13397. This USA-made hitch has the 2-inch receiver size you want and it is also the most discrete in appearance. You can refer to the linked video for a comparison of hitch options and to the included photo and video showing this hitch fully installed. The small center receiver tube is the only part of the hitch that will be visible.

If your plans are for a hitch bike rack or hitch cargo carrier you can use such 2-inch accessories like the Thule Hitching Post Pro 4-bike carrier # TH934XTR, the Curt Cargo Carrier # C18108 or the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 combination bike/cargo carrier # HR1450Z-85.

If towing is in your plans you can use Tekonsha 4-pole wiring harness # 118741 and Curt Towing Starter Kit # C45534.
