A Comparison of the Draw-Tite Hidden Crossbar Hitch to the EcoHitch for the 2022 Honda Odyssey  


What's the difference between the EcoHitch and the draw-tite hitch for the 2022 Odyssey? They look to be the same but one is much higher in cost, why?


Expert Reply:

The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver, # 76170 and the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver, # 306-X7372 are very similar. They are both Class III - 2" hitches with equal specs of maximum tongue weight being 525 lbs. and the max gross trailer weight being 3,500 lbs. This matches the listed maximum towing specs for the 2022 Honda Odyssey. They are both designed to be an easy, bolt-on installation that requires no drilling or welding.

The manufacturer of the EcoHitch states they use recycled material to make their hitch claiming it to being more environmentally friendly. I suggest selecting the best price point for you as you will receive equal performance.

If you need a wiring harness for towing a trailer, I suggest the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with Upgraded Circuit Protected ModuLite HD Module, # 118781. This custom-fit T-One connector simply plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness and then you route the harness through the jack storage compartment to the center of your vehicle. Plug in the included 7-way socket to the harness, then locate the fuse box under your hood and insert the provided fuses. The 4-way connector stows in your rear cargo area. Then use the etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.
