I would like to use a trailer but wondering what hitch I can fit or if a receiver bar is better?
Can I fit this myself on a 2004 model without any welding?
DO you have to have a ball mount or can some trailer go directly into a receiver bar?
Curt tow bar with 1.25" receiver takes about 15mins to install on the ground with ramps. It sits a bit low but works well enough for towing. You can purchase a 1.25 to 2" adapter if you have accessories with a 2" receiver. Otherwise, the Volvo tow bar has a 2" receiver but is a bit more to install.
the 2001 t5 I got at 100k miles has a hitch called "hitchking" on the back. Haven't tested it, looks 2-3 inches, and no electrical inputs...but it fits. If you're interested I'll try to find a PN on it.
