  7. A CR-V tow package, please!

    Dear Honda:
    Dear Honda, Love our CR-V's (2015 and 2005), but we confess that we are looking wistfully at the Toyota RAV4 Adventure. It's about the same size, weight, and horsepower of the 2015 CR-V, BUT it has a beefed-up radiator, an ATF cooler, an oil cooler, and a maximum tow capacity of 3500 pounds...

  11. FS: Used Valley Tow Bar and Tow Ready Wiring Kit - 2007-2011 CR-V

    Trading Post
    FS: This trailer hitch was on my 2008 CR-V which I recently traded in for a 2014 CR-V. The trailer hitch is not compatible with the 2014 CR-V. The trailer hitch has surface rust which should be sanded, treated and painted before installing it on your V. The Valley trailer hitch is heavy duty. I...

    Hi All, I need to get a tow bar fitted to my '63 plate CRV EX.

  17. No flat tow for 2015

    Dear Honda:
    Don't know if this has been addressed before, but you can't flat tow a 2015 CRV due to the change in the transmission. I believe this was a bad engineering decision as many folks choose a CRV for towing behind their motorhome. Had to settle for a left over 2014. No color choice, no trim...
  18. 2015 CRV - Can't FLAT TOW

    Shopping & Test Driving
    Was ready to buy a 2015 and found out it can not be flat towed. They (Honda engineers) changed the transmission. So had to look for a 2014. Well, found the last one in Oregon. Of course, we didn't get a good deal because of our requirement of flat tow, and that was the last one. Maybe with...
