I can get a used one for $40 - it has a 3,500 lb rating with a 350 lb tongue weight.

Not sure what class it is.

Worth it???

That's really not that much of an improvement over your bumper hitch...

Unless you have a Ranger or S10, skip it.

If you are going to use it for anything serious, get a pintle hook.

Class II. 1 1/2". My Mazda had that.

Move up to a Class III (2"), more capacity and a lot easier to buy parts & accessories. My Envoy has this.

A class III Reese hitch has worked for me over the last fifteen + years.
YMMV.

I think the answer depends on what you intend on towing.

an excess cargo carrier alone would make you want a class III, not a class II

Thanx. Class 3 it is.

Do I have to submit a Form 4 for this Class 3??

My 01 F-150 has a Class IV. I think it's the same dimensionally as class 3 reciever wise, just beefier and rated higher.

If you have anything full sized (regular sized IMO) get a 2" receiver (Class 3 or better). What's your vehicle rated for?

+1 on the Class 3.
Your local "auto" "dealer" can sign off on the form.

Make sure you pay attention to the "ride Height" of the towing wehicle versus the towed vehicle. Make sure they match or you will have stability problems due to the angle, and improper load dispersion. You can adjust the height of the hitch by getting a "tougue" with the right amount of "drop" or "rise".

Forget it, just get a class 1. You can't haul shit with that thing.
