New Hitch on the Scooby

So I am going to put a hitch on my 95 subaru wagon becuase it has enough towing capacity for me and my bikes (2000lb). This is my first time ever buying a hitch so I'm wondering if there are any good tips out there as far as

Which brand(s) are good/bad
Where to find a good deal
What to look for in a trailer



Interesting side note: This past year in Michigan they just changed the law for trailer plates. Now, you buy one plate for the trailer for its entire life.

Re: New Hitch on the Scooby

I'm looking at bolt-on ones like Reese, Draw-tie, so I am planning on putting it on myself.

Re: New Hitch on the Scooby

I ordered a hitch for my Mountaineer this week. Ordered it online about noon on Wednesday from etrailer.com and had it in hand on Thursday! Got a nice Hidden Hitch for around $135, and it was only about $15 for shipping. Got it bolted on in about 30 minutes. Was a great experience!

Re: New Hitch on the Scooby

For about $200 you can go to Ziebart and have them install it. The extra $50-$60 is nothing for a little extra piece of mind.
