  1. Rails, Roof Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I'm new. I have been going back and forth whether I am safe to tow a 1,100 fiberglass travel trailer to the point that I'm looking at the Pilot. I love my CR-V. I have a hitch receiver that can tow up to 2000. I am also having trouble with technicians and even the Honda dealership I bought...
  2. Rails, Roof Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Anyone have experience with towing vintage campers long distances? How should I prepare my 2003 Honda CRV? What’s the average gas mileage while towing? I understand not to exceed the 1500lbs tow capacity. Any tips? Advice? Etc?
  3. Rails, Roof Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I will be towing a 4x8 U-Haul trailer from TX to NC next month with my 2008 CR-V. Just some light furniture so should be just under the weight limit. Installed a Class III hitch, mainly for ease of mounting (Class I/II required drilling). Now I need to purchase a ball mount with 2-3/4" rise to...
  4. Rails, Roof Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Hi Everyone, I was hoping to get a recommendation on what class Hitch I should install on my CRV. I keep reading online about Class III but based on the specs that's massive overkill since the car can only tow 1500 lbs and a class III is rated for 3500-8000 lbs! I am hoping to buy a jet ski...

    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 need to move from Los Angeles to South Carolina in 6 weeks. Considering installing a hitch and pulling the small U-Haul 4x8 or 5x8 trailer. Would that be appropriate? Not packing furniture, just clothes, kitchen items, personal items and some electronics. What kind of hitch should I have...
  7. Rails, Roof Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Hi Everyone, I need to install a break away switch on my CRV so that I can legally flat two my 2014 CRV behind a motor home. The question I have is where I can easily run the wire from the front of the car through the firewall and into the driver's side compartment. Has anyone done this that...
  8. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Hello community, Question about how much weight the tow hook under the rear bumper can hold? I was thinking of using it to pull another vehicle that doesn't move to another area of my parking area. The vehicle trying to move is a 96 geo metro electric car conversion. It has Lead Acid Batteries...

    The owners manual states the towing capacity is 1,500 lbs. Is this the real capacity? If not, what is it? I'm considering towing a small camper trailer. Thanks
  10. Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    When towing our CR-V behind our MH and trying to change lanes, I find traffic is sometimes less then courteous. I wanted to make sure that others could see my turn signals and stop lights. Before preceding, let me note that when towing, I use the old 3 wire stop/turn/tail light system on the...

    Has anyone towed a trailer heavier than the 1500lb limit. I wasn't sure if stabilizer bars and brakes made a difference. Any comments would be welcome

    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)...
  13. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2007-2012) CR-V
    I am the happy owner of the automatic 2010 CRV which has a towing capacity of 1500 Kg and looking at towing approx 1100 Kg for about 10,000 kilometres. Car is regularly serviced and done just under 140,000 Klm. The question is not on the condition of the car but whether any one, with a similar...

    Hi, I'm thinking of getting a 2019 CRV EX-L, also thinking of getting a tow hitch for it. Would it be less expensive to buy and install it somewhere else?

  17. Rails, Roof Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I have a 2013 CRV and a 1500 lb trailer I would like to tow with it. I live in the Sierra Nevadas with high elevations on the highways of up to 9000 ft. Will the trailer significantly affect my fuel economy and cause my engine to overload and bog down?
