2015 Honda Fit Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation

Question:

I see you sell three brands for my 2015 Honda Fit. The site says that the Curt is the easiest install and I read no other differentiators. Can you make a recommendation? Importantly, the pictures for the three hitches show totally different bolt hole patterns for the hitch. The Curt, in particular, is quite different than the Draw-Tite. Curts has one bolt hole on the left and two on the right while the others have one bolt on the left and two on the right. Is this true or are the pics just not up to date? If they really are different, they couldnt possibly all work. Which ones do work? Are the hitches all about the same in terms of how they seat on the vehicle? Thanks in advance,

I can assure you that all three of the hitches recommended for your 2015 Honda Fit do actually fit. This includes the Curt Class I Hitch part # C11406, the Draw Tite Class I Hitch part # 24920 and the EcoHitch part # 306-X7273.

Both of the Class I hitches will install basically the same. The Curt hitch uses a very similar installation method but doesn't use all of the same holes in the frame as the other one. The install time between them would realistically be about the same. The manufacturers just so happen to use different approximations, but since the installation is basically the same one wouldn't be noticeably easier than the other and the hitches will be largely out of plain sight once installed.

For carrying a bike rack though, I would go with our latest and greatest, the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7273. Main reason is because this hitch offers a 2" hitch opening and it sits higher and is more invisible than the 1-1/4 hitch options.

My favorite 2 bike rack is the Saris SuperClamp EX 2 part # SA4025F because it's a platform bike rack which means it's easy to load/unload, it's light weight at only 35 lbs, it's made in the USA, and it only touches the bikes at the tires.

If you plan on carrying any women's or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Swagman Easy-Out Women's and Alternative Frame Bike Adapter # 64005 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also.
