Default Trailer Hitch suggestions

Anyone have any suggestions for a good trailer hitch place in Oakland County?

My parents need a cheap 2" for their bike carrier. I told them to avoid the universal fit/uhaul ones but otherwise I am pretty clueless.

What's it going on?

I bought one and bolted it on my Dakota in about 25 minutes. Some are real easy.

Most hitches are almost bolt on.....most youll have to do is drill a few holes.

If not try Hollands trailer on Williams lake in Waterford. He always treats me fair.

You might want to check out:

They've always done good work for me at a fair price.
