I'm looking for a trailer hitch that's easy to install. I know Cadillac has one you can buy for around $400.00 but I'm sure they contract out to someone to manufacture it for them. I've seen a couple that I like, one being the Curt and the other the Draw-Tite. If anyone has installed one that was easy to install and added the wiring harness connection with very little trouble please post your recommendations. Thank you.
I have a class three Curt hitch and wiring harness. 2" receiver. The cost was about $150.00 total. The cover from GM is $100.00. You can cut your cover around your hitch and make it look very nice for free. I'm not trailering anything but use it for my bike rack so I didn't get a trans cooler. The whole thing took about 45 min. to install including the harness which just plugs into the GM recepical.
Thank you for the speedy responses and GMJim for pointing out the other thread. I did a search but it returned a lot of threads that weren't specific to the SRX. I guess I needed to narrow my search down more. The information is very helpful and confirms my original research regarding the Curt hitch. I will be purchasing one in a couple of weeks and trying to get it installed on the first warm day we have.
I'll have three closeouts available for sale, since the dealer can only bring in four (4) at a time. I had to buy all.
I pick em up thursday, and will offer some on here before putting the three remaining on Ebay. (Shipping from Saskatchewan, Canada)
I purchased and had installed the Curt class II hitch for use with a bike carrier. The instructions say that an additional strap be used between the top of the bike rack and the vehicle. My previous vehicle was a Caddy DTS with a Drawtite class II hitch. I never needed an additional strap with that one. Is anyone else using the Curt class II with a bike rack without the additional strap?
