Does Curt Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness Fit 2018 Acura RDX


I am looking to possibly purchase the Curt items for a 2018 Acura RDX: Item #: C13130 - 2inch Hitch Receiver Item #: 56008 - Wiring Harness Item #: C45534 - 2inch Hitch - 2inch Ball This would hitch will be used for a boat trailer with a maximum GTW of 3500 lbs. and Max. 500 lb Tongue weight. The hitch will also be used for a bike rack in future. I am inquiring that I have the correct match with all 3 items.

I am happy to confirm you are on the money with the Curt trailer hitch receiver and trailer wiring harness that fit your 2018 Acura RDX:

- Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13130
- Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 56008

Both of these items will fit your 2018 Acura RDX and will allow you to tow your boat as well as use a bike rack.

The Curt Towing Starter Kit for 2" Hitches # C45534 may be the ball mount you need, but it depends on if its 3/4" rise or 2" drop is right for your trailer coupler and hitch height. It may be, but you will want to measure the height from the ground to the bottom of your trailer's coupler to make sure. Since we know the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13130 is approximately 12-1/2" to the top of your receiver, if the bottom of your coupler measured 10-1/2", the Curt Towing Starter Kit for 2" Hitches # C45534 would work for you.

I've attached a link to a help article on how to measure rise and drop which I recommend checking out. I have also added links to video installations for you to take a look at of both the Curt Wiring Harness # 56008 and Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13130.
