Default 350Z Trailer Hitch

Anyone have any experience with this product?

The idea is to tow a trailer like this

I know it will look ridiculous, but it is the most cost effective way for me to get my bike from A to B right now. I don't want to get rid of my Z just yet, and definitely can't afford to insure a second vehicle/truck...nor do I have the space for it.

There has to be someone out there that has done this, since they make this hitch especially for the 350Z, and it has been on sale for a while now.

Anyone have any experiences to share? Is it a decent quality hitch? Any recommendations for other hitch/trailer combinations?

Thanks!

That should/would work fine, both would.

What kind of bike, how heavy? The hitch does bolt to the aluminum bumper beam, keep the trailer/bike light and your good.

Surprised you would ask such a question. Several members have a hitch for tires and autocross. Recommendations in the autocross forum.

Where did the green Z come from? It actually looks pretty good.

Thanks. I posted it so that he could see that I - as well as many others - use a trailer hitch for one reason or another. I use a bike rack on mine, and strap two wheels (with tires) to it when I have a passenger headed to the track for a track day. Otherwise I just put all 4 in the car.

i pull my trailer with drag wheels , jack and tools to the strip weekly. no problems with that hitch.

when I pull the bumper for a repaint, i will probably plate weld another piece of aluminum bar at the mount point to beef it up.

I've got something similar, it's one that comes in two pieces and you can't see it when the low piece isn't attached. I need to remove it and sell it since I don't need it anymore.

I know, old thread. But I'm looking for a hitch for my 2007 Enthusiast so I can tow tires and tools to track events. The Curt hitch would be great but I've done a lot of searches and cannot find a hitch for the 2007 model. Not by Curt or anyone else. Anyone know what is different about the rear bumper in the 07 that these hitches aren't made for it?

Anyone modify one of the Curt hitches (or anything else) to get a hitch on an 07?

Scott, I've been trying to find a hitch for my '03 Track model, but have been unsuccessful. Do you know if the Curt #11483 would fit? Thanks, Paul

I just installed a Jason Z-YA hitch the other day. I chose it because I wanted to be able to remove the lower part of the hitch and leave the top half hidden when not in use.

I first tried the Curt hitch and it would have required me to cut a square notch in my bumper so I took it right back off. It also would have always been visible as it's all one piece.
