How Much Can a 2019 Honda Odyssey Tow With the Draw-Tite Hitch Rated At 4,500 Lbs


Hello, I am interested in this tow hitch that has a max weight of 4,500 lbs GTW of 5,000 Weight-distributed GTW. The owners manual for the 2019 Odyssey has a max weight of 3,000 lbs for the EX-L version that I own others are 3,500. I am guessing the manual is assuming a class 2 hitch installed, but how is Draw-Tite claiming 4,500 GTW? I am wanting to tow a boat and trailer with total package weight of roughly 4,300 lbs. Thanks.


Expert Reply:

The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76171 is an excellent option for a 2019 Honda Odyssey. It has a 4,500 lb weigh capacity or 5,000 lbs when used with a weight distribution system. This may be higher than the figures listed in your owner's manual as the vehicle and hitch are tested separately. That said, you'd need to abide by the lowest rated component which is the case for this vehicle.

In order to complete your towing setup you'll also need the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness part # 118781 and etrailer Ball Mount Kit part # 989900.
