Hitch and Ball Mount Recommendation for 2015 Honda Odyssey to Tow Rack and Roll Trailer Level


I plan to order the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer. You recommend a 22inch ground clearance at the draw-bar ball to attain a level trailer pull. Im assembling a parts-required list for my 2015 Honda Odyssey, which has a notoriously low ground clearance. I am, therefore, planning to order the Curtis Class II Hitch #C12031 that provides the most ground clearance of the available hitches. I believe it gives a 12inch ground clearance. My question is: what draw bar is recommended to add the 8-10inch or so required to get the trailer tongue level to 22inch off the ground? Incidentally, I measured 22inch off the ground which reaches about to mid-bumper height. Once I know this answer, Ill be able to place an order for the trailer, the hitch, the draw bar, wiring harness, and other items. Thanks!

Since you are going to need to use a ball mount with a larger rise of 8-10 inches that will also need to be longer to clear the rear bumper you are going to want a Class III hitch for your 2015 Honda Odyssey like the part # C13068 which is also a confirmed fit. There isn't a Class II ball mount that would give you the dimensions you need.

The ball mount part # 80248 would give you the needed 10 inches of rise and is long enough to clear your bumper as well. For a 2 inch ball for the trailer you would want the part # 63845.

This setup would allow you to tow the Rack and Roll Trailer part # Y08106 level.

For trailer wiring you would then want the part # 118521 which is a confirmed fit. Install video attached for this as well.
