This fully welded trailer hitch receiver bolts onto your vehicle's frame with no welding required. Powder coated steel is sturdy and corrosion resistant.


Hi. The trailer hitch is great, except for one problem. I night this for my 2022 Acura MDX, and it would not fit without removing the sensor that is mounted inside the rear bumper. This is the sensor that opens the rear hatch when your foot is under the bumper. Even after removing, the hitch was pressing right against the bumper.

This shouldnt hinder the placement of the sensors. It mounts to the frame and does not require that the sensors be removed. What is the yearmakemodel of the vehicle you are trying to install this on?
-- Etrailer Expert David B - 08/30/2022


A bit of challenging to mount, holes are not lined up. Had to force it a bit to match the holes. No pin included.

Acura MDX

Installation on my 2022 MDX was a breeze. No cutting or drilling holes required. Just lower the spare tire, position rack in place and secure with the 6x included bolts. Having someone hold the hitch while I secure it with my impact gun made quick work of the install. Be sure to torque to proper specs afterwards.

I compared this Curt hitch to the OEM Acura hitch and went with Curt because it was cheaper and doesn't require me to get a new hitch trim for the lower bumper. OEM one is good if you decide to install the towing harness but since I'm just using this to attach bike racks, don't have a need for that. The curt hitch sits below the factory bumper so the towing point is about 3 inches lower than factory hitch location.


Took me 1 1/2 hrs to install. Used bucket and a board. Needed a step ladder to help me up after install. I’m 87 years old. Suggest ladder for older installers I have a real sense of accomplishment


Excellent fitment with zero modification needed. extremely fast shipping.

2022 Acura MDX

Excellent service, excellent product, excellent experience overall !!!


Feels solid


High quality hitch and it was relatively easy to install with the right tools.


First hitch did not fit due to being a brand new model. Their customer service was very prompt to solve the problem. Ordered a different one that fit perfectly. They sent paperwork to return the first one no questions asked. Great customer service.

2022 Acura MDX

Fits perfectly. Thank you to George J. for his precise selection for my vehicle.


Fits perfectly 20 minutes installation


Fit perfectly and hardware was supplied.


It’s perfect and totally fit my car

2022 Acura MDX

The hitch sticks out too much. Also the item is non refundable if you bolt it on to vehicle. So lost my money for this


Install was as straight forward as it g ets.


Delivery was less than a week. Hitch is a hitch. I installed the hitch in 30 minutes

2022 Acura MDX

It came three days later.

Acura MDX

Easy to install & fit like a glove on my 2022 MDX.


worked perfectly and great quality item

  • 2022 Aura MDX Trailer Hitch Receiver
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C22HR is made specifically for the 2022 Acura MDX. The height of the top opening will vary from different trim levels as they have different panels that change the appearance and heights. If your spare is larger than an 18" wheel then your spare and the standard wheel will not fit under the back of your MDX with the hitch installed. You may or may not require the Hands Free relocation kit that Acura Sells for your MDX. It hasn't been confirmed to work...

  • What is 18 Inch Spare Referring to on Curt Trailer Hitch For 2022 Acura MDX
    So the 18 inches that is being referred to here is actually the diameter of the wheel/rim, as opposed to the diameter of the actual tire itself. I know that can be confusing but for whatever reason that's how manufacturers define it, so what you'll want to do is measure the diameter of the wheel on your 2022 Acura MDX, and I'm guessing, based on your 24 inch measurement of the tire, you very likely have an 18 inch or or smaller diameter wheel. If so, you will be able to leave the spare...

  • Is Curt Trailer Hitch C22HR For 2022 Acura MDX The Same as Part 13742
    Yes the two parts are indeed the same; the 13742 is the same as the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C22HR. The part # C22HR is simply our part number for this hitch, but is the same and is a confirmed fit for your 2022 Acura MDX. This is a really nice option for a hitch for your MDX with a super easy installation; you'll only have to lower your spare tire, lift the hitch into position and bolt it on, then raise your spare tire back up again and that's that.

  • Will Curt Class III C22HR Hitch for 2022 Acura MDX Interfere with Hands-Free Liftgate Feature
    Curt Manufacturing lists the # C22HR Class III hitch as a fit for all models of the 2022 Acura MDX. Installation will not require removing the bumper cover. If your spare tire is mounted to a wheel larger than 18 inches in diameter, the spare will no longer fit under the vehicle with the hitch installed. Curt doesn't have any specific information regarding interference with the hands-free liftgate feature, but what will typically happen is that the sensors will be blocked by the receiver...

  • Hitch for 2022 Acura MDX for Carrying Bike Rack for 2 inch Hitch
    The only hitch options we have for your 2022 Acura MDX like the Curt # C22HR that you referenced can only fit with a mini spare. So best option would be to use this hitch and then see if you track down a mini spare from an Acura dealer. This will work great with a bike rack for a 2 inch hitch and would not prevent your hands free liftgate from working either. At worst you might have to kick to either side of the hitch opening to get it to activate.

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver C22HR Fit A 2022 Acura MDX With Compact Spare Tire?
    For the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C22HR you were looking at for your 2022 Acura MDX you will have no issues with your 20" diameter compact spare tire. The only spare tires that will not fit are those that use a wheel larger than 18". Since your tires have a 20" outside diameter it is pretty likely that they are on a wheel that is 18" or smaller. If you are planning on towing with your MDX you will also need a vehicle wiring harness # 119190KIT, and a ball mount, hitch ball, and hitch...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for 2022 Acura MDX
    For your 2022 Acura MDX the Curt hitch part # C22HR would be a really great option that is mostly hidden since only the hitch opening hangs down below rear bumper, has great towing capacities, and also a very easy install. Then for trailer wiring the Tekonsha kit part # TK59VR would be the best option as it has a very reliable converter box and also installs very easily.

  • Draw-Tite or Curt Hitch Receiver for 2022 Acura MDX
    I would be happy to help you. The difference in the installation time between the two hitch receiver's on your 2022 Acura MDX is that the Curt item # C22HR sits lower when mounted so it does not requiring trimming of the rear bumper cover. The Draw-TIte item # DT42MR sits higher after installation which requires you to cut a 4" x 3.5" section of your rear bumper cover out. I recommend going with the Draw-Tite hitch receiver item # DT42MR because of its final mounting location after install....

The issue with yours is that the 21 inch wheel will not be able to be remounted after the hitch is installed. You'll have to find another place to store it or go without.

The Curt No-Drill Bracket for 6-Way or 7-Way Round Trailer Connector Mounting Bracket # C57202 could be used as well, but with the cross tube of the hitch being up under the vehicle, you will most likely need to bend it to make it work for you.

If you'll be towing with the hitch at all, you'll also need the # TK59VR trailer wiring harness, a # 2753 ball mount and a # 19260 for a 1-7/8 or # 63845 for a 2 inch trailer ball.

For the 2022 Acura MDX, you'll want to use the Curt # C22HR Class III hitch you'd looked at.
