  1. Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Hey all! I looked through a bunch of threads on this forum and am still in question of my vehicle's capabilities to tow. In May I am moving from Michigan to Boulder Colorado. I am taking my bedroom with me, and that is about it. So king-sized bed, two IKEA floor storage units (25 lbs each)...

    Does anyone know if it's possible to tow a teardrop trailer with a 2007 CR-V?

    Just bought a 2014 EXL and see the factory says 1500 pounds - I swear I saw one towing a boat way over that - how much have you towed Thanks
  4. Greetings & Introductions
    We purchased a 2014 Honda CRV EXL with 59,000 miles to tow four flat behind our motorhome. Any advice on how to set up the car would be welcome. We're currently planning to go with a Blue Ox towing setup. We're converting from a tow dolly to the 4 flat method of towing. We'll add a hitch...
  5. 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.

    What is the best way to tow a 99 CRV all wheel drive?
  7. 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...

    Hello everyone. I have a 55 plate petrol automatic CRV and live in the UK. I would like to know where I can pick up a long tow bar so I can use a tow ball bike rack which I already have. I have seen a couple on cars while out driving but have not been able to ask the owners. I'd want to fit it...

    I just talked to my local Honda dealer like an hour ago about getting a tow package installed. class III 2" with wiring, labour and tax was quoted to be around $500 CAD. what do you guys think?
  10. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Does anyone know if the 17 AWD is towable on a tow dolly, front wheels on the dolly. I understand how the 4wd works, but am a little concern about warranty issues, etc.
  11. 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. I've been looking at getting the detachable genuine Honda one for ease, as Honda will fit it for the same price as a decent (Witter) aftermarket one and I know there will be no issues with the electrics. I am struggling to find any...

    Hi, New here. We had an accident with our Ford Focus that was totaled out that we use to tow behind the RV. Just bought a 2014 CRV and I'm getting ready to set it up to tow 4 down. I have a Roadmaster sterling tow bar. I looked at Roadmaster and they show 3 different brackets not sure...

    I have a 2014 Honda Crv and a 2,250 pop up camper that I would like to tow. Does anyone know what towing capacity rating has been given to this model in other countries? Also, has anyone had any experience towing that much wieght? Thanks!
  16. 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...
  17. 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...

    Hi All, Looking to get a Thule or Pendle tow bar mounted bike rack to transport up to 3 bikes. I've got a tow bar plus electric already installed but am wondering about clearance around the spare tyre. Does anyone have any advice or photos of what might work? Cheers
