Any CT owners have a recommendation for a trailer hitch installer?

    Thinking about adding a 2" receiver to my Model S to carry a bike rack.

    I'd love any recommendations of the hardware and installer.

    Thanks!

    I called the two places in MA that Torklift listed as installers, and neither had ever done one before. U-Haul really butchered my Subaru when they put in a hitch. (I had to have a shield panel and the wiring replaced by the dealer after quick failures. I'm glad it worked for you, but I don't think I'd trust them with my Tesla.

    It's not that hard I installed the first one myself. Just took me over 6 hours.

    I also did my own EcoHitch install - took me a couple days between sorting out all the tools/tweaking I needed to do... but it's always satisfying to do it yourself! And - I'll never argue AGAINST an opportunity to buy new tools ;-) haha
