Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Honda -CR-V

Today on our 2017 Honda CRV we're going to be taking a look at the Draw Tite Custom Fit Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 76128. Here's what our hitch looks like fully installed. It's going to sit right below our bumper and we're going to see the nice design of the round cross tube right underneath. Now, this is a class III hitch, so it's going to give you a 2 inch by 2 inch receiver tube opening, and as you can see it has that nice reinforced collar, so it's going to have that clean, finished look. Now, this is going to use a standard 5/8 pin and clip, which are not included in our kit, but you can pick one up on our website using part number PC3. Now, the second hole here towards the rear, this is going to be used for a J pin stabilization device, which is going to be great if any of your accessories don't have a built in anti-rattle. Now, our safety chain loops, this is like a rolled steel stock that's welded underneath our receiver tube here, and it's going to match nicely with our round crossbar right here.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Honda -CR-V

Today in our 2017 Honda CRV we're going to be taking a look at the Draw-Tite custom fit trailer hitch receiver. Part number 36597. Here's what our hitch looks like fully installed. It's going to sit right below the bumper. It's going to have that nice round tube cross bar that you're going to see. It's going to have a nice clean finished look. This is a class two hitch so it's going to give you and inch and a quarter by an inch and a quarter receiver tube opening.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2015 Honda CR-V - Draw-Tite

Today, on our 2015 Honda CR-V, we'll be having a look at and installing the Draw-Tite Class Three Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 75742. All right, here's what our hitch looks like installed. As you can see, it's nice and tucked up underneath our back fascia, here, but still offers us plenty of clearance around our receiver so we won't have any difficulty hooking up most hitch mounted accessories that we may have. In the side of our receiver we have two pin holes. The one closest to the front of our vehicle is our industry standard 5/8 of a diameter hitch pin hole, and that's what's used to secure your hitch mounted accessories. The one here, closer to the rear of the vehicle, that's a J-pin stabilization device hole. A J-pin stabilization device is something that you can use to take some of that annoying shake play and rattle out of what is inserted into your receiver. Welded to the bottom of our hitch receiver we have these tubular safety chain loops, which are made of rolled steel.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2016 Honda CR-V - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2016 Honda CRV, we're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Custom Fit Class Three Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number is 75742. Here's what our hitch is going to look like installed. You see our side plates are going to come down on each side. They're going to meet here, in the middle at our hitch. This is a class three hitch, so we've got the 2" by 2" receiver tube opening. Just about any type of hitch accessory that they do make for vehicles, they're probably going to have a class three version. Now, when it's time to secure all of those items, you always want to use the hole that's closest to the front of the vehicle, that's a 5/8 diameter hole. You want to pick class three accessories and it looks like, even with that weld there, we're going to have enough room for anti-rattle devices, hitch pins and clips, locking hitch pins, whatever you might choose. The second hole that you see here a little bit closer to the rear, that's for use only with the J-Pin stabilization system. The safety chain connection points have a good opening on them, so you should be able to connect any type of chain.

We have this connection point here where we can mount our 4-pole flat or 7-pole RV for our trailing wiring. That way we have a nice secure solid connection point for them. We don't have to have them inside the vehicle in the hatch floating around or dangling below our vehicle here.

  • Will Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 36597 Work with Hands-Free Liftgate on a 2017 Honda CR-V
  • It is my understanding that the Honda hitch crosstube goes straight across and isn't a V-shape like the Draw-Tite hitch # 36597. The design difference allows the Draw-Tite hitch to work with the hands-free liftgate sensor on the 2017 Honda CR-V. However it is also possible for a hitch, any hitch, to partially block the sensor so if that happens you would have to kick your foot off to one side or the other of where you would normally activate the sensor.

  • The newest Honda CR-V we have a video showing the # 90089 being installed on is a 2014. However, we do have a video showing the Draw-Tite Max-Frame # 75742 being installed onto a 2016 like yours. Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite are both owned by the same parent company so these two hitches have the same process for installing. If you look at the video of the 2016 and skip ahead to about the 2:15 mark you'll see the process for cutting. I've also linked the install details of both hitches. If...

  • Can Trim Panel be Removed Instead of Trimmed to Install Trailer Hitch on a 2016 Honda CR-V
  • If you want to remove the trim panel on your 2016 Honda CR-V to install Curt trailer hitch # C13119 instead of trimming it you certainly can. Everything above that panel will then be exposed more to the elements so keep that in mind.

  • Honda CR-V 2016 Trailer Hitch and Cargo Carrier Recommendation
  • Your 2016 Honda CR-V would need to have a hitch with a 2 inch opening installed on it like the Draw Tite part # 75742. Then for a cargo carrier with enough depth to fit your photo booth the Lets Go Aero Carrier part # HCR222 would be a great option as it's tray measures 48" long x 32" wide x 7" tall. I attached a link to a video that shows the carrier being used on a similar 2015 Honda CR-V as yours too for you to check out.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Honda CR-V for Carrying Bike Rack without Stabilizer Strap
  • You would want the Draw-Tite part # 75742 for your 2016 Honda CR-V as it is a confirmed fit and would not require the stabilizer strap like only the Curt hitches do. This is also a Class III hitch with a 2 inch opening that will have higher capacities and more hitch accessories made for it than a Class II with a 1-1/4 inch hitch. I also attached an install video for this hitch as well.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Honda CR-V
  • We have trailer hitches available for your 2016 Honda CR-V, but Torklift does not offer one for your vehicle. Instead check out the Curt part # C13119 which has been confirmed as a fit for your 2016 Honda CR-V. This is our most popular hitch available for your vehicle. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch...

  • Will Curt Hitch C11555 for a 2016 Honda CR-V Tow a Small Trailer
  • If the trailer weighs less than 2,000 lbs the Curt hitch part # C11555 that you referenced would be capable of towing it. This hitch has a 2,000 lb total trailer capacity and 200 lb tongue weight capacity. To complete your towing setup you would want the part # C45572 for a ball mount with a 2 inch ball or part # C45571 for a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball. For trailer wiring you would then want the Curt Harness part # C56158. I attached an install video for this plus one for the hitch as well.

  • Trailer Hitch with 2 Inch Receiver Opening for a 2016 Honda CR-V for a Bike Rack
  • For your 2016 Honda CR-V and bike rack that requires a 2 inch hitch I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75742. This trailer hitch will be compatible with your Thule bike rack. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. The hitch itself has a tongue weight capacity of 525 pounds but the vehicle is likely rated for 150 pounds tongue weight (confirm with the owner's manual) so you would be limited to the lower rating.

  • Will Hitch From 2011 Honda CR-V fit 2016 Model
  • For your 2016 Honda CR-V, I'd recommend the # Draw-Tite Class III hitch, part # 75742. For a trailer wiring harness, if needed, use the Tow Ready # 118561. Unfortunately, the 2011 model was the last year of the 3rd generation of the CR-V models, and your 2016 model is of the 4th generation. There are enough significant differences in the rear undercarriage of the 3rd and 4th generations that your Hidden Hitch from your 2011 model won't work on your 2016, I'm sorry to say.

  • Fit and Compatibility of a Trunk Mounted Bike Rack on a 2016 Honda CR-V
  • I have a solution for you, but there are not trunk mounted racks designed to fit your 2016 Honda CR-V. Instead I would recommend a hitch # 75742 and a hitch mounted bike rack like the # TH9042. Another option would be to get a roof rack that can double as a bike carrier and watersports carrier. A great roof mounted system for your 2016 Honda CR-V if it has factory flush rails that run front to back is the Thule AeroBlade Edge # TH7602-TH7603 with fit kit # THKIT3118. If you instead...

  • Recommended Class III Trailer Hitch for a 4-Bike Rack on a 2016 Honda CR-V
  • Good question! First let me recommend you a hitch; I recommend the Draw-Tite # 75742 trailer hitch over the Curt # C13119, because with the Curt hitch they require you to use a stabilization strap with any non-trailer loads. These "non-trailer loads" are items like bike racks and cargo carriers etc. If you do not use a strap like the # 18050 it will void the warranty. You are correct, either one of these hitches would be sufficient in transporting a 4-bike rack and bikes to and fro....

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation to Carry Woman's Bike with a 2016 Honda CR-V
  • The best way to carry a woman's bike on your 2016 Honda CR-V is with a hitch mounted bike rack since this route does not contact the painted surface of the vehicle at all and provides a more solid mount. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Roadway 2 part # TH912XTR. We asked our demo and install guys to name their favorite, most easy-to-use bike racks and this one showed up in nearly everyone's top three. Check out the review video...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2016 Honda CR-V for Carrying Bike Rack
  • For a Class III hitch that does not require the stabilizer strap when carrying a bike rack you would want the Draw-Tite part # 75742. Only Curt requires the strap. To trim the trim panel to install the hitch you are going to want to remove it first. It will make the process much easier and will give you a cleaner look as well. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Swagman XTC2...

  • Aftermarket Trailer Hitch & Wiring for 2015 Honda CR-V AWD EX-L
  • We do offer both aftermarket trailer hitches and wiring harnesses for your 2015 Honda CR-V AWD EX-L. Generally speaking, dealer-installed tow packages will end up with a final total cost that is more than if you purchase an aftermarket hitch and wiring harness and install these yourself. The only specialized tool needed for hitch installation, apart from the basic tools, is a torque wrench which you may be able to borrow. Some auto parts stores will lend or rent these.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation For 2015 Honda CR-V
  • We offer three Class lll trailer hitches that are designed to fit your 2015 Honda CR-V. I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 75742. This hitch has a 2 inch receiver opening. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back edge of the bumper on a 2015 CR-V is 2 inches. The Curt part # C13119 has the same measurements from the pin hole to the back of the vehicle but I like the 75742 because it has more towing capacity than the Curt hitch. I have attached...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Honda CR-V
  • First let's start with a hitch, for that I would recommend the Curt Hitch part # C13119. This has plenty of capacity for your camper. However, you will want to consult the owners manual of your CRV to determine it's towing capacity and be sure not to exceed this figure. Since you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also...

  • Capacity of Curt Class III # C13119 Trailer Hitch Versus Capacities of 2012 Honda CR-V
  • For a 2012 Honda CRV, you'd want to use the Curt Class III hitch, part # C13119. The Curt # 13555 fits 2007-2011 CRV models only, and wouldn't be a fit for your 2012 model. The hitch itself carries a 3500 lb towing/350 lb tongue weight capacity, but these capacities will be limited by the capacities of the vehicle itself, since the capacities of your CRV are lower. You'll want to abide by the capacity of the lowest rated component. According to Honda, the maximum towing capacity of the...

  • Cut Out Dimensions for Appearance Panel for Hitch Install on a 2015 Honda CR-V
  • The install instructions use to say to measure 17 inches from the top corner to make the cut, but several customers have told us that it was a better fit to use 16-1/4 inches instead and now the install instructions have been changed. Aside from that the measurements in the install instructions that I attached are accurate. Check out the install video I attached as well.

  • 2015 Honda CRV Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation
  • For the price you can't beat the Curt hitch part # C13119 for your 2015 Honda CR-V. This hitch would work well for you. You may have trailer wiring on your vehicle, but if not you would want the part # C56158. Since you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch And Three-Bike Carrier For 2015 Honda CR-V
  • First, I recommend a Class lll trailer hitch like part # 75742 for your 2015 CR-V. I recommend a Class lll hitch because it is much more versatile when using the hitch for any bike carriers, cargo baskets or anything you want to use it for. The # 75742 has a 2-inch receiver opening. When selecting a bike carrier I recommend a platform-style carrier that holds the bikes by the wheel because it means less contact with the bike frame and risk of rubbing or damaging the bike.

  • Hitch Receiver Recommendation for the 2015 Honda CRV

My personal recommendation would be for the Curt Class III 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver, # C13119. Going with a 2 inch hitch gives you the added benefit of having more options when it comes to hitch mounted accessories. If you plan to do any towing with your CR-V, I suggest taking a look at the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, # 118561, Draw-Tite Ball...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Honda CRV Carrying a 4 Bike Yakima Rack
  • For a hitch that would work great with a Yakima 4 bike rack I would recommend the Draw Tite Hitch part # 75742. This is a great hitch with plenty of capacity that will carry your bike rack and bikes easily and will be largely out of plain sight when not in use. Check out the install video I attached for more info. There will be info there on how to trim the rear fascia as well. I also attached an image that shows where the trim panel will get trimmed.

  • Choosing Correct Hitch Tongue Weight Capacity for Using a 4-Bike Platform Bike Rack on Honda CR-V
  • The Curt Class III trailer hitch # C13119 does have a 350-lb tongue weight (TW) rating as you noted, and that capacity must be enough for the weight of the bike rack itself plus that of your loaded bikes. A substantial 4-bike rack like the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE # HR1400 weighs about 80-lbs all by itself. Add the bikes and you are indeed talking about a hefty load on the hitch. In your case I absolutely agree that using a higher-rated hitch like Draw-Tite # 75742 is the way to go....

If you are looking at the Kuat Transfer 3 Bike Platform Rack # TS03G, you'll want the kit for the Transfer 3 # PTSCLK13. Since the Transfer has a threaded hitch pin hole for the anti-rattle threaded hitch pin, the hitch pin that comes with the rack will need to...

I recommend you use a 2-inch Class III hitch like Draw-Tite # 75742 because this will provide higher capacity if you're going to tow, better safety margin and broader compatibility with a range of hitch-mount accessories like bike racks and cargo carriers. We happened to have installed this hitch in...

  • Why are Stabilization Straps Required for Non-Trailer Loads on Some Curt Trailer Hitches
  • Curt requires that any of their hitches that are NOT rated for weight distribution use a stabilization strap # 18050 for non-trailer loads. This is to be in compliance with their warranty requirements. The strap reduces some of the stress on the hitch and where it is attached on the vehicle.

From the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper measures 2 inches on all of the hitches. They all are going to be about the same in terms of visibility.
