Yeah...this is the main concern. A lot of people complain about the exhaust touching the hitch with a lot of models. It appears it’s not a problem with the cx-5. Over the next couple of years, we will be adding a scamp trailer and whaly boat/trailer to our fleet. We can tow both in our crv but hell no. I’m not pulling the weight on that crappy Honda whiny ass engine. 2.5T all the way.I don't remember the name of the brand I bought from eTrailer. They seemed almost identical except they had a class I.
I think they all weighed about the same.
If the hitch contacts the exhaust maybe it would vibrate. No chance of that from what I can see.
