Hitch Recommendation For 2014 Acura RDX


Hi Im shopping for a hitch for my 2014 Acura RDX. I will primarily use it for a platform bike rack. Thule T2 rack. I was set on purchasing the CURT hitch, but I read the QandA about bike racks and it is recommended I use a support strap with the CURT. The 2 inch hitch has a 600 lbs tongue limit where as the other two racks only have 400 lbs. Seems to me, the extra stap is overkill and only necessary for warranty. I cannot see a reason why the Lock-Tight and Hidden Hitch cost more than the CURT. Input?


Expert Reply:

Some manufacturers are more conservative in their approach to safety and will therefore insist that extra measures are taken when using their products.

We do offer a few hitches that are designed to fit your 2014 Acura RDX. I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 75784. This is a Class lll hitch and has a weight capacity of 400 lbs. This hitch has a 2 inch receiver opening.

The Curt hitch you referenced, part # C13130, is also a Class lll hitch and although requires the use of a strap like part # 18050, would still be less costly than the other hitches we offer. This hitch is also made in the USA, and has a limited lifetime warranty.

Any of the hitches we offer will work well with the Thule T2 Pro XTR, part # TH96TX, bike rack.
