Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2015 Honda Odyssey


I plan to pull a 2500# travel trailer with my Odyssey. I have been looking at the Curt C13068 and Draw-tite 75270. I am concerned that the Curt only has 5 mounting bolts vs the other with 6 mounting bolts. I like the curt design with the closed tube ends. Should I be concerned with the 5 bolts vs the 6 bolts?

After reviewing the installation videos it looks like neither the Curt nor the Draw-Tite hitches are considerably easier to install than the other.

The fact that Curt hitch, # C13068, uses one fewer bolt is not as issue either. Both companies are extremely diligent in testing their trailer hitches, so you can rest assured that the bolt number is not a cause for concern. Since the price point is similar too and all of the hitches have the same weight capacity, I would say go ahead and go with the Curt hitch if you like the looks of if it.

I have included a link to the installation instructions and a link to a couple videos showing a typical installation for you.

If you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # EBMK4. It comes with a ball mount with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop, interchangeable ball set, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If the ball mount kit does not have the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, use the link I have included to the right that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.

And for trailer wiring you can use # 118521. I have included some links showing how the hitch and wiring install.
