Good morning, all.

At the end of the week I'll be returning my 2017 LX and picking up my new 2020 Touring. I want to transfer the trailer hitch and wiring to the new CR-V, but I wanted to check if it's worth my time to uninstall / reinstall on the new truck? I know the front / rear bumpers changed in 2020, but was it such a change that my trailer hitch will no longer fit? And will the wiring harness still fit, or has the wiring loom changed enough to require me to purchase a new harness?

Thanks!

Is it from Honda or aftermarket? If aftermarket call or check website below.

You will also need a kick sensor relocation kit; unsure if this is compatible with what you have. They relocate the kick sensor to the right of the hitch.

I "might" be ordering a new 2" hitch/receiver next week from etrailer for my 2020 CRV. I have a manual rear hatch so the kick sensor is not a issue. I believe the one I want is a Curt, maybe a Reese. I just don't like the fact of "trimming the bumper to fit"!!! Anyway mine will just used for bicycles and/or cargo rack. BTW, I heard covering the license plate with bicycles or full cargo rack is a becoming issue, any thoughts .

Thanks, forgot about that one. After looking at it more closely (it's aftermarket - Etrailer), I'm just going to go buy a new one. I want one that is more integrated into the bumper and is not so shabby looking (the current one is somewhat rusty on the bottom of it, and I loathe putting old crap on a new vehicle).
