2010 Trailer Hitch

I would like to install a trailer hitch to pull my Sea Doo Boat 17 foot Speedster. I really like the rear exhaust on the 2010 it looks Badd Azz, so I don't want to change that at all. I would like a covert type of rear hitch. Do I have to get a custom design at the shop for that look? I have seen a couple searching that were what I want, but they had no details on how and what they did to get that set-up. Thanks in advance I know this topic has been discussed many times before. I just want a clean set-up.

Good luck. Most that had hitches made are not on here much or sold them. Your best bet is to go to a hitch fabricator and see what they can do for you. You also may just need to go back further in your search as some of the hitches have been discussed in detail. Try PMing one of the ones you like for more info.

you are either going to have to have a custom one made to come through the bumper, or reinforce the curt hidden hitch. That's what i did. It holds my 21 ft pontoon with no issues. How much is the load on the your boat

was there NO factory hitch available from MOPAR???? ill look again when i can but i would SWEAR that my hitch has a MOPAR sticker on it. granted its 1 1/4" not a 2" receiver but i have towed my 21' Bayliner Capri all over creation and it does just fine-except for the fact that i melted the wiring harness twice before i rewired it through the chains and that the lock i keep in the ball socket will be so damned hot it will fry eggs...that full bore exhaust heat is a killer

They make one as I have it, but he said he liked the way his exhaust looked and didn't want to ruin that.

The problem with the Curt is you are stuck with the factory exhaust. Mopar/ Corsa and most others doesn't allow the use of the Curt.
