Trailer Towing Setup – 8thgen Civic LX-S By admin | April 1, 2023 | 32 Trailer Towing Setup – 8thgen Civic LX-S Been meaning to upload this for a while. This is a short video going over my towing setup / toy hauler for my 8thgen Civic LX-S (FA1), R18 engine & 5 Speed Manual Transmission.

My automatic 05 Accord tows my trailer+motorcycle (about 700 pounds) just fine as well. Stays in torque converter lock at top gear even at 80mph (though I keep it to 65 unless the traffic’s too heavy and fast for that to be safe).
Thanks for the video. I have a 2012 civic 5 speed and plan on towing my dual sport with it. This definitely helped 👍
Hey man if you don’t mind me asking what brand is the trailer and hitch?
I think your car needs a state inspection bro
I have a 2020 Corolla SE with the 6 speed and I’m thinking of pulling a dual sport around 1000km. Pretty sure my car would be able to do it, either that or riding it all the way there which wouldn’t be fun for me or the bike. thanks for the video.
Thanks for video … just installed a Curt on my 2007 Civic 5 sp. I intended to use it for a bike rack but good to know a trailer can be towed.
Can this be done with a 2009 civic lx automatic transmission?
thank you for the video, I’m gonna have my Honda Civic Coupe Ex carry my equipment and same trailer
Buy a truck 🤦♂️
So cool i enjoyed it. It;s nice that you can tow a small trailer with a regular car. I have hauled two u-haul trailers and one homedepot one with mine. I drive an 02 pontiac grand prix and it hauls with no problems. and Nice tips on Braking and stuff good to know.😎 Keep them Coming.
Great video, I had a question. I own a 2009 Civic with 185,000 miles. Still running strong and no problems. How do you keep you rear end of the car from sagging. The reason that I ask is that when I put my two kids in the back seat the rear fender is level with the tire. Do you have some special shocks or coils in the rear? Thanks for the answer.
Where did you get the tow hitch for it bro considering on installing one for my Honda
New York street
And what not!
Any chance you know what the ball height is from the ground?
I own a 2015 Honda Civic Sedan with 110,000 miles on it. Would I be able to haul a trailer carrying a jet ski | snow mobile on it. Do I need any specific installments??
When did you buy your trailer? I had no idea my civic could tow, I was contemplating buying a small truck for camping trips. Now I can avoid that. I was just looking on TS website, your trailer w/o plywood is now about $750 on 20-Feb2021
So dope I was thinking about 1500 weight limit
All I wanna know is how you did your trailer light set up
I’m thinking of towing about 1150 pounds total weight trailer and motorcycle think I should be okay?
Would it hurt the car to drive it about 20 hours away with this kind of a load, there would be 1 or 2 nights where the car would have a chance to cool down)
I want to tow a small motorcylce and trailer (about 700 pounds total) plus a full trunk up to where I go for the summers for work. Only issue is im currently driving a 2008 4.0 mustang (manual) and would rather not buy a truck. I’ve been considering switching to a wrx for easier winter driving, but I can only imagine a car with a turbo and 4 cylinders would have more trouble than a naturally aspirated v6 for a longer haul
Who says a civic cant tow first here
Hi there, I just bought a ‘17 civic manual 2.0. Just wondering what you’re using for trailer wiring? Did you splice in a 4 point connector? It looks like it comes from the trunk. Thanks!
I got a 2011 Hyundai sonata , would that work ? I plan on getting a 250 as well with the same hauling setup
I haul a 11.5ft jetski with my little Chevy Sonic no problem at all. You’d be surprised how much a car can comfortably tow.
Took forever to get to the set up on the car. Talked more about your irrelevant bikes. I didn’t search dirt bikes and some boon who is obsessed and wanted to talk and Bragg about something I didn’t care for. Literally half way in video is what I was looking for. Dislike video next time get to the point
This is so freaking funny and awesome. Show us a full video of how you set this all up
What is the L and W of the trailer? Also, could I use a trailer on a 2010 Honda Accord.
Thanks for the info man! Now that it’s been a little while. Hows the setup holding up?
09 basemodel civic 5 speed thanks this video helped alot
