How much does it cost to install a hitch? I'm about to get one put on my car so I can haul a fishing boat (that i plan to buy). ;-p


I found one for 107 +shipping (which will be a lot i bet).... how hard are they to install?

Worst case scenario if you DIY:

Wiring the electrical. Make sure there are instructions if you aren't savvy (I'm not...)
You may need to loosen the bumper, exhaust, ect
I imagine you may need to drill holes into your frame to fit whatever bolts are needed.

Good luck Anon. :)

The car should, in theory, already have the wiring harness for the trailer. And any bolt on hitch should be set up to bolt right into factory holes in the frame.

Shouldn't be too hard. Good luck.
