    Hi all, I have a 2018 EX 1.5 Turbo AWD. I recently installed a hitch for towing a small utility trailer or motorcycle trailer if the need ever arises. Just wondering if anyone knows of a place where you can buy some kind of air lift suspension that could either fit inside the rear coils or...

    I have a 2018 Touring and I want to add a hitch. I've pretty much narrowed it down to the DrawTite or the Curt. The DrawTite is a little cheaper and slightly easier to install, but the Curt intalls higher, behind the bumper and my wife prefers that. From what I've read, the DrawTite is less...

    Hello, * I'm from Paraguay, South America. I decided to install the original Honda trailer hitch and harness. I bought both and on the weekend proceeded to the installation. With the trailer hitch I had no problems and I was able to follow the instructions step by step. When I try to...

    I'm going to buy a 2019 CR-V, EX trim over the next week or two. I'd like to be able to put as a big a box as I can get away with on the roof, ideally in a configuration where there would be room for both the box and a canoe (or a bike.). I assume this may necessitate crossbars that stick out a...

    Just thought I would share a couple pics of my hitch that I installed the other day. Install was pretty straight forward - I also swapped the tailgate kick sensor for the hitch compatible version. Can't wait for the warmer weather to put my bike rack on and hit the trails!!

    I have a 2006 CRV and recently put a 2" receiver on it and now find out that the uni-body won't support the weight of what I need to use it for. Does anyone KNOW of a way to strengthen the frame?

    I'm new here. Just picked up my 2018 EX-L. Long time Honda owner (02 Civic, 04 CRV, 08 Ridgeline, 13 Civic, 16 Accord, 18 CRV). I'm used to towing with my old Ridgeline. Obviously a class 3 and 5K max. I had a hitch installed on the new CRV. They installed a class 2, 1 1/4" receiver opening. Can...

    I have a 2018 EX and was looking at a few trailer bike hitches (platform style). The problem is many of them look like they would partially or fully cover the license plate when folded up to save space. The 2018 seems to have the plate mounted down fairly low it seems. I happen to park next to...

    Hi, When I ordered my 2018 CRV EX a few weeks ago I asked to have a hitch installed so I could cary my bikes behind the car. The dealer didn't give me any real options for the hitch and only prsented one choice which I got installed. I think it's the 1.25" (see photo attached) I've checked...
  17. Greetings & Introductions
    I joined this forum because I need information on towing a teardrop trailer and hitch specifications for my 2016 CRV. However, I cannot see how to post a new message except this intro one which is set up for me.

    Hi there, I'd like a trailer hitch, but Honda's price of $1,024 (Honda hitch part is $525, they told me. Then the wiring is $301, then there's labour*). That's double what other places around town are charging. But of course they're not using the official OEM Honda parts and for all I know...

    Wondering if anyone has purchased a bumper step/guard that slides into the trailer hitch while you are not towing. I have been looking for one but there are a ton out there on the market. Unsure about pricing,size,looks, quality. Interested in something low profile but strong. Recommendations...

    I am in the process of purchasing a trailer hitch receiver for my 2018 CRV. I am looking at either the 2" Draw-Tite or the Curt. Does anyone have any recommendations? Also and perhaps more importantly I have read that the installation of either trailer hitch can sometimes prevent the hands...
