Hey im a newbie and was wondering if i could put a trailer on a 98 Honda Civic LX. If so where do i go to get the hitch to attach to the car and how much would it cost.

I looked in my car maual and it said the car wasnt designed for that but i figure a trailer and one bike shouldnt be that bad. and i would only be driving with it on for no more than 5 hours. Any advice..

I put a hitch on a 1400cc VW Bug & hauled one or two dirt comp irons to the races. True I had to have it custom made, but did the trick, next on a old CJ-5 Jeep 4-pot flat head & progressed up to a newer Jeep of '66 or '67 with stupid F head with latter two being a sinch & finished off with a Mazda B2200 truck & quite common to be hauling 3 comp irons in 60s & 80s on the latter three.

I think just about any U-Haul will put a hitch on your car. It's at least worth a try. I'd guess around $100 maybe? :dunno:

Civic hitch

I wouldn't see why not. Most cars are rated to tow at least a little bit. I just looked up an article indicating that a 1996 Civic is rated to tow 1000 lbs. Trailer plus bike should be at or just under that weight, so you should be fine.

As already stated earlier, U-haul should have what you need. I'd expect $150-$200 including a light kit.

I think of all the times I had that poor old '47 Jeep hauling four large fruit bins of apples or HEAVY pears up & down the twisty roads to the packing house. Man that was a lot of weight over the amount permitted & did the same with the later Jeep.

Mind you after a few yrs they demanded we put brakes on the trailers & I did, but they were totally usless still no one tested the weight of the flat deck trailer let alone all the wt of the fruit bins.

It was a day in & day out procedure from small, in height fruit bin (soft fruit like cherries, 'cots, peaches & prunes) which I would stack 3 high so actually as tall as the large fruit bins for apples & pears. Like from early in July till late in September ever darn yr bar some of the dramatic freezes.

Jenna Jameson could suck the chrome off of a trailer hitch.

Does she even do porn anymore?

I couldn't imagine having sex with her. It'd be like throwing a hot dog down a hallway.

Yeah, but it'd be like throwing a hotdog down a hallway in the Bellagio instead of some beat-up old Econolodge. :D

30 seconds? Jeez..thanks for the compliment. I'd be a 2 pump chump with her!!! I'm starting to think that this topic has started to migrate over to the "Adult Related" forum. What the hell is this thread about anyways? Leave it to me to ruin something.!!!:twofinger

To bad I do not know how to store photos on the net or be able to send them to Sites like this.

For then I could point out the chap with a sort of oldie of a Civic & a Honda RC-51 or 929 on the top of the vehicle. That was in 2000 & there were many comments on this & that about said photo.
