    See here for some possibly useful information:
    Choose "2009 Dinghy Guide" from the menu at right.
    It doesn't actually say, but that's a PDF document.

    Thanks. I printed it out. I would still like personal recommendations on
    which tow bars work best and which ones to avoid. I am leaning toward
    the Roadmaster XL baseplate because the installation instructions
    indicate less cutting and drilling than the Blue OX.

    cutting and drilling??? doesn't the crv have hitch attachment points?
    you should be using something that custom bolts up to those, not some
    "one size fits all" kludge.

    don't know if it fits, but the genuine honda towing hitch for the 08 crv
    is $225. beats cutting and drilling any day.

    The Blue Ox tow bar kit is one of the better units. I have 2
    relatives that use "The Ox" unit and are completely satisfied.
    Additionally I was told that Honda had a hand in the development of
    the Blue Ox unit.
