Trailer Hitch for 2013 Honda Accord Coupe for Use with a Thule Helium Aero Bike Rack


Hello, I am trying to figure out which hitch looks the best on a 2013 Accord Coupe when the hitch is not being utilized. Someone posted a picture of their Accord coupe in the comments of the Draw Tite hitch but I cannot find pictures with the Curt hitch. Will one stick out further past the bumper? Will one look more like it is not a bolt on? Also, which hitch will offer better ground clearance? I am pairing the hitch with a Thule Helium Aero 2 Rack.

I have included a customer submitted photo of the Curt trailer hitch # C11681 installed on a Honda Accord for you to view. I would say it blends in a little more than Draw-Tite hitch # 24899 but both are still visible beneath the rear fascia.

Both stick out about the same, which is understandable since they mount to the same locations and have similar designs. Ground clearance is going to basically be identical too.

Since you want to use the hitch for a Thule Helium Aero bike rack, # TH9042PRO, I recommend the Draw-Tite hitch # 24899 because with it you do not have to use a stabilization strap when using the bike rack. With the Curt hitch you would have to use the strap, # 18050.
