Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Feel reassured by getting the most overbuilt hitch for hauling your camper
  • Dislike the look of running your wiring out the back hatch and want a welded-on bracket to make it easy to attach right by the hitch
  • Prefer not to make any permanent changes to your CR-V, like cutting into the underbody panel

No, if you:

  • Might get annoyed by seeing the cross tube of the hitch when you look at the back of your CR-V
  • Drive over a steep driveway often and need extra ground clearance so your bike rack or cargo carrier won't scrape the pavement

Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite's Tested Tough program provides testing standards far superior to those outlined by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the go-to source for engineering professionals.

Each Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver undergoes extensive fatigue testing and static testing with the ball mount that is either supplied or recommended for use with that particular hitch, thus ensuring results that are applicable to real life use. Fatigue testing is also conducted on hitches rated for use with weight-distribution systems.

In addition, Draw-Tite performs static testing on a simulated automobile, as opposed to the rigid fixture used for SAE testing, resulting in a more true-to-life scenario. Technical Support

At we're committed to the products we sell, and to our customers. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch. The technicians at etrailer perform hitch installations on a daily basis, making them a valuable resource for do-it-yourselfers. The one-on-one, personal service you'll receive comes straight from an expert in the towing and automotive field.

2018 Honda CR-V

Product was shipped and delivered without dents or chips in the trailer hitch. Video instructions were super helpful to install DIY. Elevated the rear of my car driving up two ramps placed underneath my rear tires to allow me enough working space underneath the vehicle. Took two people to lift and balance the hitch up towards the bolts and screw on the washer and nuts. Took about 1 hr of time to install. Works great to carry my 2 inch Kuat two bike rack.

After installing and using my hitch for carrying my bike rack for the past year, I have had zero issues. Finish is still in great shape and very satisfied with my install and product. Would highly recommend.

2019 Honda CR-V

The hitch receiver was hanging out of the box upon delivery. It did not fit correctly either. The holes did not line up with the holes in the vehicle. I had to move the holes in order for the hitch to fit. I don't know if I just received a lemon or what. I debated sending it back after reading so many reviews and watching the videos of install several times show how it should just bolt right up. However after considering the effort to send back on top of putting my exhaust mounts back just to do it all over again I felt that it was better to spend the extra effort to make it work. The hitch itself seems sturdy enough but I definitely wasn't the plug and play experience it should have been. Attached photos show how far the holes were off by.

Often times when the holes of the hitch and the vehicle do not line up, its because the hitch has flexed during shipping. Because a hitchs mounting brackets are made from mild steel, the mounting brackets can flex during shipping. If the entire hitch was rigid steel, there would be a greater chance of the hitch being damaged and experiencing stress cracks. I do have a link below for your future reference.
-- Etrailer Expert Katrina B - 03/22/2022


Easy installation if you watch the videos. Putting the exhaust back on easier with a small amount of liquid soap as lubricant.

From start to finish this was a perfect project with good information at purchase, good communication about shipping, and helpful installation videos.


Easy to install. Takes about 30min. Easier and faster with 2 people. Fits my 2019 honda crv perfectly. Haven't towed anything but feels solid. Review based on install


I bought this hitch primarily for my bike carrier, but also thought I might tow light trailers with my 2017 Honda CRV. So far, I have only used it with my bike carrier, and it works great for that. Installation was fairly straight forward.
My son and I completed it in about an hour. Note, we are both pretty mechanically inclined and my son had some useful tools like muffler hanger pliers, jack stands, creepers that helped speed some steps up.

2019 Honda CR-V

I purchased and installed a Draw-Tite hitch for my Xterra 15 years ago and it never let me down. So decided to go that route again, but in this case with smaller car mostly for hauling bikes.

Installation was straight forward, and watching the installation video beforehand really made the process much smoother. The fish wires are AWESOME. I did the installation myself. The trickiest part was holding it up... which I did buy using a strap to tie the bracket at the back of the hitch receiver to the tow hook, so I could then maneuver easily to align the frame bolts... then after loosely tightening those, I untied and put the final bolt in place.

I used silicone spray on the rubber isolators, to avoid degrading the rubber.

The only deviation I found from the instructions was I had to use the largest access hole to install both frame bolts/spacers on each side... as the spacers would not fit through the smaller access hole next to the fwd frame bolt hole. It was not an issue, the fish wires made it easy to do this.

The whole process once parts/tools/care were prepped was 2 hours. I didn't rush. I installed the 118741 vehicle harness after this was done, it went smoothly too after watching the video.

Looking forward to many good years of use of this hitch!

A year later and Im still extremely happy with this hitch. Used it for bike racks and pulling several trailers around without issue.
Chris - 01/06/2021


My etrailer experience was exceptional. The order (hitch, hardware and rubber hitch cap) arrived nicely packaged, all intact and a day before it was promised.

The installation difficulty level was moderate since I did it alone from the ramps in tight space. It would be easy for 2 persons though. Video from etrailer helped a lot!
I touched a few paint chips and use wrapping to reduce install related paint damage.
After disconnecting 2 rear rubber muffler mounts and insetting 4 x7/16" bolts the hitch was placed on the top of muffler and supported there with jack until was bolted on. All took about 2.5 hours. Not counting couple visits to local Home Depot (to replace the lock washer since spacer block is crooking and was flipped on the other side. And to get additional socket adapters to make it work in tight space).

The hitch itself is tough and well constructed, except that one layer of paint is not be enough for NY winter. Rust prevention spray (e.g. T-9 Boeshiled or something similar) will be needed.

The hitch works well. Bike rack and bikes are stable and secure on multiple trips. It holds well after an year with rust prevention spray no visible rust, paint still intact.

2018 Honda CR-V

I don’t write too many reviews unless product and service is exceptional or poor. My dealing with etrailer was exceptional. From help on the phone to make sure I received correct wiring harness to shipping to ease of instillation. Ian assured me of the correct harness, shipping was quicker than quoted. After watching instillation video on etrailer I was ready to go. I’m installing on 2018 Honda CRV and was never sure that nothing had changed from 2017 CRV. I was hoping maybe Honda would move wiring connection to a easier more logical location. The hitch took 50 minutes to install. Went exactly as etrailer video showed. The only problem I had was lining up hitch plate with tow loop. I suggest loosening up mounting bolt as far as possible and jacking directly under back end of receiver opening. I could not do this by hand but only took 3 pumps on my floor jack and everything lined up. I installed by myself and used a jack stand to balance one side of hitch while I bolted the other side. All hardware tightened and torqued nicely. I did loosen the mid muffler hanger for a bit more room. The Honda wiring harness was exactly where etrailer video showed it to be. Wiring was a struggle due to panels braced in place and I was unable to remove. I had very little room to work and needed wife to pull on panel while I put wiring in place. Watch the instillation videos on etrailer, it is perfect, explains everything you need to know and how to do it. Hitch install was 50 minutes by myself. Wiring install was 90 minutes and I needed extra hands. Price was great and I will go to etrailer for my future needs.

It has now been a year and hitch and wiring are still working perfectly. Thanks etrailer.

2020 Honda CR-V

Very happy with this hitch. Works great, followed instructions PDF and video provided by Carol C.

Tools used: pliers, silicone grease, socket wrench, torque wrench, car jack, jack stands, fish wires provided with the purchase.

Very straightforward installation process. I am not the guy you want around you if you're looking for someone mechanically inclined or handy. My wife is Joanna Gaines and I am the guy that Joanna Gaines buys food from. But I can follow instructions and follow along with video.

My exhaust splits off into two so I disconnected the right and left side exhaust hangers after applying silicone grease. I removed the next one that was just past the rear axle and the one that was around the middle. I used an empty gas can to catch the muffler and put it right under the heaviest part towards the back of the car.

Hitch works great, very solid and didn't have any issues towing 1,000lbs. Will be ordering again from etrailer for future hitch needs!

2021 Honda CR-V

Overall good product. One item that would make it easier to install would be a nut with a captured bellville or locking washer. Thanks.

Works great. Install took about 40 minutes mostly exhaust hangers. Now we have a solid place for the bike rack.
Louis R - 10/18/2022


This hitch does not fit Hybrid CRv. The Hybrid CRV has additional metal body seams that are deliberately manufactured to obstruct mounting the standard receiver hitch. I ended up cutting off/trimming some of the tabs that were in the way to allow the receiver to mount and align properly with the mounting bolts and hardware. I think Honda does this deliberately to discourage mounting the receiver because the Hybrid is not rated for any towing..Zero towing capacity. Honda has overlooked the fact that some owners want to use hitch mounted bike racks or other accessories which mount to a receiver hitch and never have any intention of using it for towing.

Thank you for the review! It is true that this doesnt fit the Hybrid model of the 2020 CR-V. For that you need part # DT79MR
Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2"
-- Etrailer Expert Jon G - 06/04/2021
My assessment of the hitch has not changed over time. The hitch itself still works fine and looks fine.. it was an incompatibility issue with the particular hitch and the Hybrid model of the Honda CRv that caused the problem.
Ivars M - 05/30/2022

2019 Honda CR-V

Purchased this to accommodate a bike
rack on my '10 Honda CR-V. It was reasonably priced, arrived well packaged and arrived on time. Had a local garage install because the exhaust system had to be lowered and it was more than I wanted to take on. The high fits well and is unobtrusive. I've done business with etrailer in the past and they are always on top of their game.

works great with my bike rack
Earl - 07/29/2020


Once installed, I have been happy with the performance of this hitch. I docked it one star because the installation on my 2019 CRV was a little wonky, Getting the screws through and into the hitch and the bottom of the car was a little challenging because the provided hardware didn't fit through the holes in my car. We figured a work-around and once installed is fine now.


This receiver works well. I chose this one because it has port for the wiring to mount. I did have to buy a mount for the 4 pin connector plug the receiver does not come with one.


Adam E provided me with excellent & knowledgeable product information. From the moment I spoke with him I knew I had made the right choice when it came to shopping for my vehicle's tow hitch. He kept me informed from the minute I placed my order till it was delivered. Thanks again etrailer, you just added a new member to the family.

Excellent couldnt be happier.
Daniel - 07/15/2021

2019 Honda CR-V

Great hitch. Instructions were spot on! The bolts to mount the hitch could have been a little longer (maybe 1/4 inch longer) as I was challenged with little help to raise the hitch to proper height. I did managed to get the two front bolts to seat properly but it did take time and patience to make it work. Great product!


The product was received on time and in perfect condition. Installation was straightforward and easy. The unit will be used to mount bicycle carriers or a platform carrier, as needed.

Fantastic! A great product and relatively easy installation. Holding up well.
Gene - 08/04/2018


We've had this on our car ~1 year now and it's still awesome. We ended up going with a Lolo bike rack and put it on pretty much every Friday and take it off on Sundays. The hitch has held up great and the support from etrailer is awesome!

2017 Honda CR-V

Hitch was a perfect fit on a 2017 Honda CRV Touring. The foot activated rear hatch opener still works as claimed. The hardest part was getting those rubber doughnuts for the exhaust off & on. Also suggest getting something to hold the hitch in place against the frame of the vehicle once you get it into position. I used a one gallon pail w/ some wood blocks in the center of the hitch, a floor jack on one side and a 2x4 (that happened to be the perfect length) on the other side. Then it's just a matter of threading the washers & nuts on and torqueing them down. The wire fish for the mounting bolts is brilliant. Took me a little over an hour, but could do it faster the next time.


good product. free shipping. easy to install put it on my Honda CRV for a hitch hauler I use sometimes.


Excellent. Just what I needed. Fits perfect on my 2020 Honda CR-V. Got this so we could carry multiple bikes. Only caution is if you have the hands free tailgate this may block the sensor, fortunately I was able to get the adapter to make it work.

2021 Honda CR-V

I've installed hitches on every vehicle I've owned and this was probably the easiest one I've done. Ordering from etrailer was simple and shipping was fast. Very happy with the entire process.


Install took 90 minutes from backing up onto ramps to rolling back down. Pretty straightforward, watch the video a couple times and you won’t even need the instructions. My car is the 2018 CRV Touring with the hands free tailgate.

1. I bought the exhaust hanger tool online and it was worth every bit of $20 to pop the pins out of the rubber bushing.
2. Exhaust hanger tool was useless for re-install, all you need is some silicone spray and strong fingers.
3. Two person job for sure. I held the unit in place while my son got all the nuts on finger tight.
4. Most important, the hands-free liftgate works just fine!

I attached my bike rack (1Up USA 2”), tossed a bike on, and drove around for 10 minutes, everything is good.

Pete L - 04/16/2020


Here's a tip that might save some freaking out from happening. When I raised the vehicle I only did the right rear side just high enough to get my lowest jack stand under and be able to roll far enough under to reach the exhaust hanger in front of the rear axle. when I got the hitch loosely secured on the main four bolts I next went to install the hitch to tow point bolt and it was not lining up. took me a minute but I finally realized the vehicle being off level cause I only raised one side was enough to not allow it to fit correctly once I leveled the vehicle up it lined up perfectly.
Another Install note: since I installed this bymyself I let the exhaust loose from the rear hangers and left the one in front of the axle secured which allowed me to rest the hitch on the right and left mufflers. when I was ready to secure the bolts I only had to push the hitch up a few inches on the side I was working on and the other side stayed put on top of the muffler. Once it was loosely secured I then let the front one loose and that allowed the muffler to drop for me room to have room to work the torque wrench.
Great Product very nice to install everything fit well and shipped on time. this is my second hitch from E-Trailer.

The Hitch is awesome and works well
Greg M - 08/08/2018


This hitch installed just like the instructions and videos explained. The only trouble I had was getting the rubber donuts that hold the exhaust pipes and mufflers in place off and back on. Eventually WD-40 and inappropriate language got the job done. The hitch has worked fine with the light kayak trailer we tow.

    Unfortunately, we don't have a video installing the Draw-Tite Max-Frame # 76128 on a 2017 Honda CR-V as of yet. It would clearly show this process.
