has anyone looked at what it would take to install one? I know the exhaust Is in the way. are there options to relocate it?

I have a motorcycle I want to tow occasionally and was wondering if it's an option I could work out.

Owners manual says not to tow, but I have a 4-bike rack I wanted to carry on occasion so I got a class 1 hitch installed at U-Haul. $180 + $20 for the install + tax. Well worth it.

Wonder how that CURT hitch looks installed. Does it fit under the center exhaust?

The Curt hitch is identical to the U-Haul. It even has the same warning, hot sticker. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised to find that Curt manufactures it for U-Haul. Unless the Curt is significantly less than the U-Haul, $20 to install it is a real deal. If you schedule it on the U-Haul site, they give you $10 off the normal $30 install charge. The only other thing with the U-Haul is you have to pay tax. If you order the Curt over the Internet, you may be able to avoid sales tax.

Do you have the part number for this?

As I think the new one goes above the exhaust like the curt one which I don't like as you have to lift the number up to get the hitch in.

Thanks
