Honda Odyssey Trailer Hitches
At one point in time, moving cargo could only be done only with large trucks. Now however, it can be done with any car as long as you have the right trailer hitches in place. With a few minutes of your time, you can browse through Honda Odyssey trailer hitches at CARiD to find the one that has the strength and qualities that you need. For instance, two great options are the Trailer Hitch by Draw-Tite and Trailer Hitch by Hidden Hitch. Each hitch belongs to a particular class. Trailers that are small don’t need a higher class trailer hitch in order to haul them. In fact you can use a simple Class 1 or Class 2 trailer hitch. Knowing the weight of the cargo that you’re hauling is extremely important in picking out the right trailer hitch. For example, heavy duty trailer hitches are required for loads that are heavier than most, like industrial equipment, hauling horse boxes or moving a large boat.
For small trailers, bike racks or even cargo carriers like the Universal Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier, a Class 1 trailer hitch is more than enough. This cargo carrier can hold up to 500 lbs and has a platform of 20x60 inches for easy stacking. Class 1 trailer hitches have a weight capacity of 2000 lbs. For small to medium sized trailers, a Class 2 hitch is appropriate. Class 2 hitches have a weight capacity of 3500 lbs. Class 3 hitches can handle up to 5000 lbs of weight. This type is great for medium sized trailers. Large trailers can be handled with a Class 4 hitch which has a capacity of 10,000 lbs. The final class is a Class 5 which handles extra large trailers with a weight over 10,000 lbs. These 5 classes are how trailer hitches are categorized. Once you know the total weight of your cargo you can then choose the right Odyssey trailer hitch at CARiD.

"After the dealership quoted me the $500 bill, I decided to give it a try myself. You Do Need the Metric Tap of M12.0 x 1.25 thread to clean out the weld nuts under the van. Mine was 2012, and the factory primer and weather seal was thick enough that the bolts can't go up without struggle. The instructions are clear and easy to grasp with lots of pictures. It took me about 45 minutes to complete the installation. The hardest moment is to use one hand to pull aside (toward outboard) the tailpipe while the other hand is busy tapping the weld nut. Wear a goggle for your eyes. I would suggest to save that cover piece behind the driver side and just slit off the top edge and re-install back under the van. Looks professional and cuts road noise as it is designed to do so. It would be very helpful if you use a box of 10 inches high to prop up the hitch while you take time to hand tighten the bolts; it is really easy to put in this hitch so fear not and go for this purchase. And if you have the Lock-Tite handy, put some on the bolts so they stick better and won't rust altogether with the frame in case you need to remove the hitch later."
"Wow, how simple to install myself! Excellent product made specifically for my Honda Odyssey. A simple plug-in, stick the box to the frame, run the wires behind the trim, pop two fuses in, and it was done."
"Excellent hitch. Installation was not a problem with the help of another person. Would be difficult if alone. Shipping was fast and direct from the manufacturer. The only thing I was a little disappointed in was that in the picture, it looks like it is oblong shaped which I think would look better than a round bar, but it is round. I like that the ends are closed, though unlike some other manufacturers. With that fact that it is an exposed hitch, it looks very nice on our Odyssey."
