Trailer Hitch and Towing Equipment Recommendations for a 2021 Acura RDX


Needing stuff to tow a trailer with my 2021 RDX. What do you say?


Expert Reply:

The trailer hitch receiver I recommend for your 2021 Acura RDX is the Curt # C95CR because it has a Class III rating and a 2" receiver opening so it can be utilized for a lot of different applications. This will fit with your spare tire but it may interfere with the sensor for the Hands-Free Liftgate should you have that feature.

For wiring to activate the lights on a trailer you can use the T-One # 118800 if you have the 12V Power Provision. If you don't have that then I recommend the ZCI Wiring # 119250KIT because it uses clamps that sense when your lighting functions are active as opposed to splicing right in to your OEM wiring.

To complete your towing setup you'll also need a ball mount kit like the Curt # C45534. Aside from this the only other thing I recommend checking out is the Hitch Pin Alignment Collar # e98942 which makes lining the hitch pin holes up on your accessories and hitch much easier.

Attached are some review videos for you to check out.
