    Hummmm.....$169 ain't bad either! Guess I should have waited.

    Either brand is well respected, and would be a safe buy.

    Re: SRX Trailer Hitch

    the factory is a 2 in receiver or 1 1/4 in receiver ? I would like to use a stowaway2 swivel model. Someone knows this model on the srx. Are the wires preinstalled on the srx even without the factory towing option? Thanks for your help.

    The factory hitch is 1 1/4" receiver that comes with hitch bar, but no ball.

    I do not know what a "stowaway2 swivel model" is.

    The wires are preinstalled "stock" from the factory--BUT--they are solid; as opposed to the tow option having a plug in the harness that the hitch kit's wiring harness plugs into. (pull plug apart, plug in "T" harness, and loose end attaches to hitch platform)..2 minute wiring install

    Regarding trailer wiring.....my early 2004 SRX does not have the trailer towing package, but the wiring is still in place and with a quick disconnect connector. Plug and play.

    Talking Re: SRX Trailer Hitch

    Hello,
    My new redline 2005 V8 gets here "on or before sept 24th"
    I ordered it with everything including the trailer hitch. I don't actually need this right now, but I ordered it "just in case"...
    I was wondering if someone could give me some advice regarding the factory 1 1/4" trailer hitch verses 2" class 2 traailer hitch ? Looks like a 2" is more versatile. What capabilities am I loosing with the 1 1/4"? Thanks

At least we'll be able to cart the bikes around if necessary!

    Re: SRX Trailer Hitch

    My dealer has no clue (service or parts) about how to find and use the factory trailer wiring for which I paid extra buying the trailing package. Was the "T" connector in the glove box, stow tray or do you buy it seperate? If purchased does anyone have the part #?

    John,

    The "T" connector came with the Cadillac hitch as standard.

    If it is available separately, I do not know. Somewhere, but I cannot find it, I have the original installation papers that MIGHT have the part # on it. Perhaps your parts man can find it in the computer.
