Draw-Tite vs Curt Hitch for a 2013 Honda Accord


I have a 2013 Honda Accord 4 Dr with dual exhaust. I will only be using it for my two bike track, and not towing with it. Is there any pro or cons between the Curt C11681 and the Draw-Tite 24899. Thank you


Expert Reply:

For carrying a bike rack the biggest advantage that the Draw-Tite Hitch # 24899 has over the Curt Hitch # C11681 is that it does not require the use of a stabilizing strap when carrying a non-supported load such as a bike rack.

If you went with the Curt hitch you would also need a Curt Stabilizing Strap # 18050 to secure the rack. I attached a video on how this is done, but basically you will need to attach the strap to the rack and then run the other end of it to the edge of your trunk lid.

If it were me I would rather not have to go through the extra steps of doing this every time I wanted to install or un-install my bike rack.
