Does the curt hang down low....ia it hidden behind the license plate?

Re: Best tow hitch

Re: Best tow hitch

Anyone have any information on a trailer hitch that can be used with a roll pan? I saw someone made there own here on the site. Does anyone know of any manufactured ones?

Re: Best tow hitch

I bought a used Curt off of craigslist that was close to the width I needed. Then customized it myself. I wont be towing anything more than single axle 12' with a 4-wheeler or maybe some furniture with it though. Maybe someday a pop-up camper.

I go the license plate mount from Brothers. Had to drill holes for it. I also ordered the wiring kit from them but it has yet to ship.
