What is the Difference Between the Draw-Tite Hitch # 76170 and # 76171 for the 2018 Honda Odyssey


I know on the previous Odysseys the 3rd party hitches generally had a shorter ground clearance than the OEM hitch with the ones with the crossbar being the shortest. Is the ground clearance any different between the two DrawTite hitches for the 2018 Honda Odyssey? Or is it purely the cosmetic difference of one having a hidden crossbar?


Expert Reply:

The biggest difference between the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitches, # 76170 and # 76171, is the # 76170 hitch sits up closer to the bumper which will give you a little more clearance between the bottom of the hitch and the ground.

The Draw-Tite # 76170 is less visible with only the receiver opening sticking out from under the rear of the van.

The Draw-Tite Hitch, # 76171, actually sits lower and the cross tube can be seen under the bumper of the Odyssey. This hitch will give you less ground clearance than the other Draw-Tite hitch.
