My 2004 Astro doesn't currently have a hitch. I've been looking at Hidden Hitch and a motorcycle single tray carrier.
Has anyone used a setup like this to haul a dirt bike? My dirt box weighs ~230
I bought a hitch from Etrailer.com, I got the one with the highest load capacity without having to remove my spare tire, Its been great. it fits snug up into the rear bumper, its Barely even visible. I was very impressed. took about 30 minutes to install and that was me by myself. Just be sure to torque bolts down to spec.
Ive also got a hitch rack that I am using, a good friend of mine let me borrow it indefinitely. its heavy duty, all solid steal. I love it. works flawlessly.
Recently I lifted the van 7Inches and put some 31.5" tires on so 9 inches taller and now my ramp to load the hitch rack is super steep. I also have a small trailer I use from time to time especially if im bringing two bikes or a friend and his bike.
I love the hitch rack tho because I can still get the same gas mileage as normal and its much fast to load up. don't be shy with straps! :chevy:
