Default Car Hitch

Excuse me please if I've asked this question before! I'm an old man, and very forgetful!

Has any Prius owner here ever installed a trailer hitch? If so...what is your experience?

Just want to install and use a lightly loaded car carrier. Less than 200 lb's total.

Default Prius with hitch

I have had a hitch on my 2008 Prius for many years. Used with platform and light tool box as an extra trunk for long trips. Have hauled and moved many items with this setup. Have had no problems. Now have 180000 miles and still going strong.

Thank you very much for your comments. I appreciate them very much. Did you have much trouble with it dragging on high spots?

What I trying to ask is does your carrier shank comes straight from the hitch to the carrier, or does it curve upward resulting in the carrier being higher from the ground.

Thank you,

Bill
