    Trailer Hitch Recommendations for 2011 SRX?

    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.

    I have a Curt Class III hitch, but haven't installed it yet. I'm waiting on the fascia closeout to arrive before i install. Electrical looks to be super simple plug and play.

    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.

    You won't be disappointed with the Curt hitch.

    Do you have a part number for the fascia closeout? I understand GM makes a special one for the SRX with a hitch. Thanks,

    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 put a class three Curt hitch on mine. With the closeout it hides nicely!!

    Re: Trailer Hitch Recommendations for 2011 SRX?

    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?
