Hitch Capacities for a Curt Hitch on a 2013 Acura RDX


Hi, Before I proceed with buying your Curt Class III Receiver Hitch for my 2013 Acura RDX I need to know what the Maximum Towing Capacity would be when the hitch is installed on my RDX. I appreciate your help. Thanks,

The Curt Class III hitch that has been confirmed as a fit for your 2013 Acura RDX is the part # C13130 that you referenced. The capacities for the hitch are 4,000 lbs total trailer weight and 600 lbs total tongue weight. You should note that in a towing setup you are only as strong as the weakest component. You will need to check the owners manual of your vehicle to determine what Acura recommends as the overall capacity for your vehicle and be sure to go by the lower of the two figures as the overall capacity.

I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.

For trailer wiring you would want the part # 56008.
