Ball Mount Recommendation for Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Installed on 2018 Honda CR-V


Hi! Im planning on buying a Draw-Tite hitch 76128 for my 2018 Honda CR-V. Do you have any suggestions for which ball mount and ball I should get with it? Id like to have the 2 ball height at about 18.5inch inches, if possible. Thanks!

When we installed the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 76128 on a 2018 Honda CR-V we found that from the ground to the top inside of the hitch receiver measured 13-1/4". This means that if you need the top of the ball at about 18-1/2" then you need a ball mount with about a 2-1/4" rise.

If the bottom of your trailer coupler to the ground measured 18-1/2", when level, then that would mean you actually need a rise of 5-1/4".

For the 2-1/4" rise I recommend the Curt Fusion Ball Mount # C45155 which is a complete kit, and for the 5-1/4" rise I recommend the Curt Ball Mount # C45336 with the Pin & Clip # C21500 and the 2" Hitch Ball # 63845.

Also, don't forget your wiring so that you have a complete towing kit! For that you need the Tekonsha T-One # 118741.

Attached are some installation videos for you to check out.
