Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Honda Odyssey  


Can I use an es3 bumper hitch with a 2015 odyssey? It is only 60 dollars, and seems to have the same weight capacity as the frame hitch. I suspect this bumper hitch is really only for pickup trucks with the super sturdy bumpers.


Expert Reply:

I would not recommend you attempt to install a bumper hitch on your 2015 Honda Odyssey. A frame mounted hitch would be what you will want. The most popular option being the Draw Tite part # 75270.

The overall capacity of a hitch setup also depends on the surface it is mounted to. If the hitch you mentioned has a higher capacity yet is installed on a bumper the overall capacity wouldn't end up being very high since your bumper was not intended for towing.

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 then want the part # 118521 which is also a confirmed fit.
