i have browsed this forum for many years, i owned a 2003 for 2 1/2 years and just picked up an '07, i dont post much because i can usually get my questions answered through searches

i searched through many threads and did not see the curt hitch anywhere

ebay seller trends_auto has three packages, one is class I and two class III

and the curt
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280477545483

$20 price difference
round vs square tubing,
different wiring harness
besides that, how do these differ?
what would you all recommend?
thanx in advance

The Curt one appears to have more of the cross bar that would hang down below the bumper cover than my uhaul as the side plates appear longer and the cross piece is straight rather than curved.

They are both good hitches. I opted for the Hidden Hitch. (That's the U-Haul)

Not so much for aesthetics as for off road clearance. This car is low enough already.

The wiring kit Sux though. I went with Honda wiring after seeing one at the dealership that had a fire do to the Wiring of the trailer lights by U-Haul. New E, and Honda would not cover the repairs. I thought a fuse would have blown or something before that happened. I guess not!
