We can get your 2019 Honda Pilot set up with a trailer hitch, 7-way, and brake controller, and let's go ahead and start with the best option for a hitch, which is from Draw-Tite:

- Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75225

The hitches that fit your '19 Pilot are very similar, with the same install, clearances, and capacities, but there is one thing that separates the Draw-Tite, which is that it has a pre-mounted tab for a trailer connector mounting bracket. This is going to make it much simpler and more secure to mount your 7-way on the back of your Pilot. And for that 7-way, the correct part for your Pilot is from Tekonsha:

- T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package - 7-Way Trailer Connector # 118286

Even though the title says "Factory Tow Package" you don't need to have the factory connector; your Pilot will have tow package wiring that the harness plugs into, and you'll add some fuses (which are included with the connector), and that's it. So this will be the most simple way to add a 7-way to your Pilot, and you can mount it to the Draw-Tite hitch's tab with the Mounting Bracket # PK12711U.

Then for a brake controller, I highly recommend the Brake EVN # TK63VR.

I recommend the I-Command because it is a great value due to its unique combination of quality and cost-effectiveness. The I-Command is going to give you smooth braking, is easy to use, and has a bright display that is simple to read and understand. For a combination of quality, reliability, and price, there really isn't a better option than the I-Command. The only other thing you will need to install it is the Wiring Harness # 20127.
