    It is my understanding this comes automatically and is a 1.2 hitch. Which means you should be able to get an accessory such as this Hitch Cargo Rack | StowAway2.com ?

    Vs buying the 2" hitch which requires air suspension.

    And it is my understanding that the accessory hitch is a no cost option, but you still have to choose the option if you want it.

    So is it better to spend the money on 2" hitch with model x even though I'm sure I won't be pulling a trailer but will be using it for cargo carrier?

    What are you going to carry?
    Will you want a bigger carrier that may somewhat cover up the brake lights and thus have built in brake lights itself (like my cargo box). 2" comes with hitch plug for brake lights.

    I don't know if the accessory hitch is class 1 or 2 and what weight it would then allow.

    Initially I thought I could get away with a cargo bag to sit on top of the carrier as once I unpack I could fold the cargo bag. Going with cargo box you are stuck driving with the box. Ie; Disney world and various other places in Florida. I could also see someone deciding to steal the cargo box from the back...

    Would someone post when they find out if the 1.25" accessory hitch is class I or class II?
