    I'm toying with adding a hitch to my '71 so I have the option to tow my small trailer.

    Does anybody have experience with the U-Haul hitch option? Found a thread from 2013 where a guy mentioned U-Haul was going to maybe build one off his car, but I didn't see any updates.

    I have one on the wife's Suzuki XL7. Been on for years. No issues. Not sure about 2nd Gen hitch though.

    NastyZ member 'Rand' has one on his 70 L78 that he installed back in 1971, still has it!! Checkout link below, go to page 12 post #111, you can see the hitch in his picture. Somewhere he's posted more pictures of it.

    Back in the day you could buy a hitch from multiple suppliers but it would be very difficult to find one today. Once in a while you can find one on eBay.

    Yeah, I've seen a few old school ones pop up on eBay from time to time, but then saw U-Haul was making a direct fit for these cars and was curious about it.

    I have a smaller open trailer that sits super low on smoothies that would be fun to haul behind the Camaro when I want to take my Speed Triple R along.

    Maybe you can make your own.
    From these pictures it doesn't look to hard.
