The important thing to know is that a hitch accessory should be well off the ground, should never cover your licence plate, should not extend too far from your vehicle, and should not exceed the Tongue Weight Capacity of your hitch.

Hello Raymond, Unfortunately we do not know why there isn't a Honda logo hitch cover, but we have sent a request to the manufacturer letting them know that there is interest in one being made.
