Default Trailer hitch

There may be a trailer hitch available for the K900 shortly.
A company contacted me about using my car to develop
a Trailer hitch for the K900's. Will be free and a life time
warranty.They think will start about January 9th.
Will keep everyone posted. I was interested in carrying a
wheel chair for a disabled Vet.

I'd be interested what you find out. My only thought is that the K9's rear bumper is already so low that a hitch might scrape the ground.

After returning from the shop and having the car checked, I have decided not to do a trailer hitch.
U-Haul was looking for a K900 to use in the development of a trailer hitch. In return for letting them
use the car for development of the hitch. They would give me an installed hitch and a lifetime warranty
free of charge.
Here are the problems
We have a wrap under bumper so the bumper has to be cut out. The shield between bumper and wheel
well has to be eliminated, Or maybe the exhaust system modified. There would only be 5" of clearance
at most, with nothing in trunk, between hitch and ground.
If some one is interested in doing their K900. contact U-Haul they might use yours.
