Group purchase: Beefy sedan tow hitches, 100% bolt-in

Hey all!

In the works right now is a sedan tow hitch based on the old discontinued Draw-Tite.

These are my goals for this hitch:

1. Easy for the average guy to install with basic tools (no welding)
2. Stronger and more capable than the original Draw-Tite
3. Affordable

One of the biggest design differences will be the following:

I'm sure there are terms for this that I haven't learned yet, but on the Draw-Tite, the receiver tube is welded between two perpendicular pieces of steel. According to "my guy", it is much stronger to use one continuous length of steel with the receiver tube welded ON it.

Who would be interested in a hitch, and how much is it worth to you?

I hope to have a dozen of these, and I'm shooting for well below $300 retail.

Do we know if they are actually in stock? Last time I checked, none of the bolt-in hitches for this platform could be purchased new. @Caddyshack95 had to have a hitch made from scratch.

Many sites list things, but then you place an order and find out they don't physically have it.
Not to quote an old post but you’re right.

Found tons of websites that list the hitches as “available” only to call and say they haven’t had a class iii like that in years.

Had a custom one welded up here in town… hasn’t let me down yet.
