Most Concealed Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2018 Honda Odyssey Touring


Which model hitch would be out of site and still allow for my handsfree lift gate to operate? I saw the Honda OEM trailer hitch requires a new antenna for the lift gate which has about a 6inch section in the center to avoid the receiver. The total Honda package is around $1000.00. Please help...


Expert Reply:

The most concealed trailer hitch receiver we have for your 2018 Honda Odyssey is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76170. As you can see in the attached photo, only the receiver tube opening of the hitch is visible. This hitch has a Class III rating with a 2" receiver tube opening. It will work perfectly for most bike racks and can allow you to carry up to 5 bikes if needed.

In regards to your hands free liftgate, the feature will still work with the hitch installed but there may be limited access directly under the bumper near the receiver tube. If you want to ensure full access then you may want to acquire a relocation bracket from the dealer.

I have attached an install video on the above hitch for you as well.
