I have found a good deal on a trailer, but I have no hitch on my 2010 Wing. I noticed on Ebay that there were a lot of different kinds of hitches out there but what kind to get and how hard they are to install is the question. Getting a small trailer to haul things with on longer trips would be nice, but several hundred dollars for a hitch and installation would make me rethink the whole thing.

Hitch

I got the vertical one from Wing Stuff...$149. Works great and easy to remove any sign of a hitch...for those trips to the dealer for any maintenance.

:shrug:There goes another warranty
Installing a trailer hitches doesn't void the warranty. The only way a aftermarket part could void a warranty is if it could be proven to cause the problem that you are trying to have a warranty claim with.

Honda has replaced plenty of 01 to 04 models frames....quite a few out of warranty.... that have had cracks in the rear triangle of the frame and had a trailer hitch installed. Why?.....because Honda knows the frame crack problem was caused by a design flaw with the frame with those models and not because of pulling trailers.

The three hitches that bolt to the frame are Rivco, Bushtec, and Hitch Doc.

Others have load paths in secondary structure.
