Best Trailer Hitch Receiver for Bike Rack on 2020 Honda CR-V


Hi - We have a Yakima Ridgeback Tilt-Away Hitch 4-Bike Rack. Which hitch is best to buy: 1.25” or 2”? Looking for best stability etc. Thank you


Expert Reply:

The best trailer hitch for a 2020 Honda CR-V for a bike rack like your Yakima RidgeBack 4-Bike Rack # Y02458 is a 2 inch hitch, the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76128.

A 2 inch hitch is always preferable to a 1-1/4 inch hitch, as there is no difference in things like stability, but a 2 inch hitch gives you a higher tongue weight capacity for better support of large bike racks, and it will be beneficial in the future as well. For example, if you ever decide to use a different bike rack or other accessory like a cargo carrier, you will have many more options with a 2 inch hitch than a 1-1/4 inch hitch. Really, you should always go with a 2 inch hitch over a 1-1/4 inch hitch on any vehicle, as there is never going to be an advantage with the smaller hitch.

And for the 2 inch hitches that fit your 2020 Honda CR-V, the one that gives you the best bumper clearance - making it the best option - is the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76128.
