Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for 2018 Honda Odyssey


We have a 2015 Honda Odyssey with a Hidden Hitch 87479. We will be getting a 2018 Odyssey and it looks like we will have to get a different hitch. Will we need to get new wiring harness as well or can we still use the one from that we use for the 2015 Odyssey?


Expert Reply:

The 2018 Honda Odyssey is different enough from the 2015 that you do have to use a new hitch part number. For that the Draw Tite hitch part # 76171 is the way to go. The wiring changed too so you'd need the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118753 and you'd be good.

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.
