Comparing Curt and Draw Tite Trailer Hitches for 2019 Acura RDX

Question:

I have one other question for you. We are looking for a bike rack with the following requirements. Could you suggest one? 1. Capable of holding at least one eBike (Electra) with fenders. With the battery, it is 54 lbs and without it is 48. 2. Capable of holding one mountain bike. (Trek) 3. Capable of holding a children’s bike in the future. We only have two bikes now, but have a 1 year old and would be nice to get a rack that could grow with us / expand as a family. 4. We currently have a 2019 ACURA RDX, which has a 150lb limit. Our thought is if we did get a rack that held two bike and extended in the future, we may have a larger car by then that could hold more weight on the hitch. 5. Have a 2” connector. We are likely getting the Drawtite or the Curt hitch and not the Acura OEM hitch. 6. Strongly prefer a platform type of rack.

The Curt and Draw Tite hitches for your 2019 Acura RDX are pretty similar but the advantage goes to the Curt # C95CR as it can fit with all spare sizes and like you found out will still work with the hands free liftgate. The trick will be to kick to either side of the hitch opening.

Question:

Can you tell me the differences between the Curt and Drawtite hitches for the Acura RDX 2019? Also, your site says that the handsfree functionality will stop working. When I contacted Curts product team, they said it would continue to work. Do you know which is accurate? Any pictures of the installation? Thanks!

You could use the Hollywood Racks E-Bike Rack part # HLY74FR for the E-bike and mountain bike and then to expand it to carry more you could use the # HR1475Z.
