Just got back from getting the hitch put on. Wound up costing about $700, including the converter wiring and a drop hitch
The hook-up for the VW was going to cost at least another grand, so we decided to rent a car dolly and go with that for now.
Next time I'll weld it myself! Turned out to be a custom job, with the low-hanging bumper. But I do have a removable hitch...
I'm thinking about getting some car dolly plans, and building myself one. That is, if I can't find a used one cheap. The dolly seems like the way to go, as it'll fit most cars and I don't have to drop the big $$$ whenever I want to bring along a toad.
Hopefully mechanic-types will be less expensive up in Vermont.
