Call me crazy, I am thinking about putting a trailer hitch on my civic. Here is my reson: I have a little 600cc Yamaha Motorcycle that I want to take on a road trip, got my girlfriend, and don't want to ride the bike the entire way, but still ride around when we reach our destination. I'm broke most of the time, thanks to bills and life, I live paycheck to paycheck, I DO NOT have money to buy a truck. I've seen trailer hitches on ebay for $150, that's something I could afford. So, I think of it like this, when I got 4 buddies in my car, 200lbs x 4 = 800lbs, not counting the 150 from me, 500lbs motorcycle, utility trailer weighs 200lbs? If I got that hitch and put it one well (welding). Would it mess up my car, AUTO transmission, engine 1.5L, brakes (disk front drum rear), stock suspension, if it was only used 2-3 times a year? each trip, max 1000 miles, probably less. In yall's opinion, would it work well? Thanks. P.S. Already seen the Curt Trailer hitches on ebay rated at 1000lbs total weight of tow load, anyone know of other hitches that might be better/stronger?
