Differences Between Available Class III Hitch Options for 2020 Honda Odyssey


I need a 2 inch hitch for my 2020 Honda Odyssey. What's the difference between the Curt C13370 and Draw-Tite 76170 hitches?


Expert Reply:

Both hitches would share the same 525 lb tongue weight/3500 lb towing GTW towing capacity, but the similarities would end there. The Draw-Tite # 76170 is a concealed design, meaning that the majority of the hitch would be concealed behind the Odyssey's bumper when the hitch is installed with just the receiver and safety chain loops being visible. Because of the concealed design, the bumper cover would need removal to install the hitch and would be reinstalled afterward.

The Curt # C13370 is a more traditional design, which would be fully visible from behind the vehicle. Because of this, the installation would be a lot less involved. I'll link to installation videos for both hitches so you can gauge how difficult the installations are and how the hitches appear once the installation is complete.

If you'll be using the hitch for towing, you'll also need a trailer wiring harness, a ball mount and a trailer ball. There are two possibilities for a trailer wiring harness, to determine which is needed, you'll want to take a look in fuse box in the drivers side bulkhead in the cargo area and find fuse location 10,11 and 12. If the blank fuse slots have the metal clips in place to accept the fuses, then you'd use the # 118781 wiring harness. If the metal clips are absent, making it impossible to install fuses in those locations then you'd use # 118753. For a ball mount use # C45070, for a 1-7/8 inch trailer ball use # 19260 or # 63845 for a two inch. For a hitch pin, use # PC3.

I've linked you to installation videos for the hitches and the wiring harnesses I recommended.
