Where to get a good tow hitch for RSX for bike rack?

As title, anyone know where to get a good to hitch (that is pretty much hidden) to allow a bike hitch to attach to?

You might want to try Rack Attack?
Or call around the wreckers to see if they have one?

I usually get a better deal at Lordco and Canadian Tire compared to Rack Attack. You will have to install yourself thou.

is there any lessening of towing capacity if you use a hidden hitch over a normal one?

They are all rated the same, Class 1. This means max 2000lbs towing capacity, 200lbs tongue weight.

As to the hitch itself, depends on what year you have. If you have an 05-06, there is only one "design" available (several manufacturers have their names on it, it's all the same piece) and U-Haul is the cheapest source for it. If you have an 02-04, you can use the U-Haul hitch but there is also a frame mounted style and it is superior, so if you have an 02-04 you'd be way better off to buck up for that.

I'm old now - boring street cars and sweet race cars.

You can try to get in contact with this guy for a custom one.

He makes a really stealth hitch for the s2000.

He's located in Coverdale.
