Roof Rack and Towing Equipment Recommendations for a 2015 Honda Pilot


I have 2015 Honda Pilot. I need recommendation for roof rails, cross bars and trailer hitch with wiring. Can you assist? Also what is normal shipping time? I want to put luggage on roof and also ability to hook up everything from uhaul trailer to RV.

For a roof rack I recommend a Thule WingBar Evo system with Silver # TH711500 or Black # TH711520 60" crossbars. If your 2015 Honda Pilot has raised side rails you need the Evo Feet # TH710401 but for a naked roof you need the Evo Feet # TH710501 and Fit Kit # TH145191. This setup gives you a great looking roof rack that is aerodynamic and features a dual strip on the top which eliminates the need to modify anything on the roof rack like you would have had to in the past.

According to my research all 2009 - 2015 Honda Pilots came with a trailer hitch from the factory so there are no aftermarket options for you. We do have wiring though so for a 4-Way you need part # 118558 but for a 7-Way you need part # 118265. Both of these come with everything you need to get the wiring fully operational.

To complete a towing setup you also need a ball mount kit. I recommend checking out Ball Mount Kit # 989900 because it includes two ball mounts, one with a 3/4” rise/2” drop and the other with a 2-3/4” rise/4” drop, a 1-7/8” hitch ball, a 2” hitch ball, and a pin and clip. You will want to refer to the attached ball mount article to ensure that this kit is correct for your towing application.

Attached are some videos for you to reference as well.
