What hitch do you guys recommend for the Tacoma? I am looking at eBay and see everything from $89 to $245! Brands include U-Haul, Quality S, Valley Tow-Rite, Hidden Hitch, and more! I want a good one - but not going to use it more than occasionally Holding a bike-rack is a good use also....

A clean low visibility installation from the back view would be desirable.

So, what are you guys recommending? Thanks, Rob

I installed a Draw Tite on my 06 tacoma. No regrets I got it off craigslist. Its pretty hidden when looking at the truck from the back. It was built well.

U-Haul, Quality S, Valley Tow-Rite, Hidden Hitch
valley is u-hual
think hidden hitch, drawtite, and valley are the most popular
i have the valley and hitch is flush with the rear bumper ( not sticking out) and about 1/2 below the bumper. got it for $119 at u-haul

but all are good quality

when i was looking around someone said don't get a u-haul as it is gray, nope haven't been for years,

When I was doing research; I found that most hitches were made by a couple of makers; iirc Hidden Hitch/Draw Tite/ Reese? were made by the same company. There were a couple different makers, but it just depends on your market/area you're in.

I ended up going with a local trailer/ trailer hitch shop to get mine installed. I think it was $250 with everything, labor, hitch, wiring harness.

I went w/ the factory. It looks the cleanest and is built the best when I did my research and looked @ them. It bolts on super easy, plus the plug in wiring harness makes everything a breeze no wiring splicing. Factory is the way to go!
