Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendations for a 2007 Honda Ridgeline


I noticed that the hidden hitch was more prominently showing on one of the customers pictures compared to the maroon ridgeline. Are they different tow hitches? Thank you.

Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite are from the same parent company. Hidden Hitch has actually been discontinued but the 2 are identical except for the stickers that are on them. I would go with Draw-Tite hitch # 75280 for your 2007 Honda Ridgeline since it is the brand that is going to continue on. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you.

If you plan on doing some towing I recommend 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 have the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, use the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level. For trailer wiring you can use # 118400 to add a 4-Way flat connector to the rear of the vehicle. I have linked a video showing how the wiring installs as well.
