Just got a decent deal on the custom fit UHAUL Hitch with Lifetime Warrantee & a Compact Car Cargo Carrier that is just the right size for me to put a lawn mower on the hitch instead of in the HHR like I have been now (didn't waste money on the rails-can make um if I need um from electrical conduit). The cargo carrier is better than most because of the smaller size (fits inside the HHR till you need it (Home Depot/Lowes trips etc. & also it is one of the few that you can adjust the tray closer or away from the bumper, as well as the hitch bar is raised about 8 inches-no dragging on the ground or going into driveways).
Also bought a Bike rack from Walmart online (cheaper than the store & had it shipped to the store for free). I researched the bike rack and concluded it was the best for the money-the Allen website even has videos on installing.
The deal from UHAUL was Free Shipping (saves a ton due to the weight) and no tax (taxed if I went to the Store). I have the links posted below. I know most of you would rather spend the $ on performance but I also bought my HHR for a utilitarian type vehicle-lawn mowing & kid/fun transport. I will try to put on this weekend. Pictures? Possibly.... Did a prelim look underneath and found 2 of the necessary holes were never punched out on assembly yet there are etched circles with etched arrows pointing to them. Odd. No big deal-easy enough to drill um. Some of you who may have been teetering on buying a hitch could save some bucks with the free shipping & no tax...
I ordered them late Sunday night-got them both this morning FEDEX Ground-the Tray came from PA and the Hitch from GA. Great shipping for free!!!
