    All being well we are picking up the CR-V tomorrow. Couple of things I wondered...

    It has the Honda fit Towbar fitted and I just wanted to check it was all present before we leave. Obviously, it will have the removable towball, but should it also come with a bag for it to be stored away in ? I assume it just gets put away next to the spare wheel when not in use.
    Also, I think I saw a video somewhere of the towball being fitted and removed, did it show that it has a "blanking plug" that gets put in place of the towball to stop muck going up into the socket.

    Yes there should be a bag with it, similar to the one for the wheel wrench.

    The blanking cap that comes with the towbar is really flimsy and normally breaks after the first time you use it. It doesn't offer much protection, so I wouldn't worry too much about it.

    I have one on my FR-V. There should be an instruction sheet and make sure there are at least 2 keys, there were also a pair of gloves. I would expect the dealer can order a spare before you go, cos he will have all the numbers available.

    Everything is present and correct :Smile: . Looks like it has hardly been used.
