    Good Afternoon all, Does anyone have any experience with an aftermarket trailer hitch on a touring C RV? I know honda sells a relocation kit for the hands free kick sensor for the Honda hitch but will it work with other aftermarket hitches? I want to buy the etrailer hitch.

  9. Trailer hitch bike rack - that doesn't cover license plate on a 2018?

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    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...

  13. Trailer Wiring Harness

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Saw I could buy kit online for 30$ and install myself but the wiring would have to sit under cargo mat by the spare tire. If I take it to the dealer will they mount the plug directly into my bumper so I don't have to worry about hiding the loose wiring or will they do the same and tuck it under...

    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...

    Hi all, Does anyone have any recommendations for an after-market trailer hitch for a 2015 CRV AWD? I'm looking for a four-bike rack as well, so the weight capacity would have to be substantial, I imagine. In addition, if anyone has a four bike rack that they love... let me know!! TIA.
