Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness Recommendations for 2020 Honda Odyssey


Which hitch and wiring do I use for the 2020 Honda Odyssey? I looked into getting the factory set-up, but for what Honda wants for them, you'd think they were made out of gold! Help!

We can help you with that. I have two hitches to recommend, the etrailer brand # e98855 and the Draw-Tite # 76170. The primary difference between the two is that the crossbar area of the Draw-Tite hitch will be concealed behind the rear bumper fascia, with only the receiver tube being visible. Most folks would prefer this option, however because the hitch installs behind the bumper fascia, installation is much more time consuming. The etrailer brand is much easier to install, but will be much more visible. I've linked to installation videos for both hitches, seeing the installation procedure might be helpful in making your decision. I've also edited a photo showing what both hitches look like once they're installed.

For a trailer wiring harness, I'd recommend the Tekonsha # 118781, see link for install video.

Finally, you'll need a ball mount, trailer ball and a hitch pin and clip. The # EBMK4 kit which includes both a 1-7/8 inch and a 2 inch ball would work perfectly.
