Default Trailer hitch for Chevy Suburban

I am in the process of buying a trailer hitch for our chevy suburban. I am leaning towards the Curt hitch. Does anyone have any recomendations for hitches? On the farm we used Reese hitches exclusively but that was a while ago and I can't find the types we use to use. I will be towing our old 23 foot John Allmand and I think it weights around 5,000 pounds. I won't tow very often but want to have the option.

Thanks, that sounds like a good price but we don't have any truck centers around here that I know of. I found a reese hitch cat 4 that I am getting ready to order over the internet. Luckily the truck is already wired for one so it should take 30-45 minutes to install.

Try Valley Industries. I got one from West Marine on clearance for my truck, class IV (10K load/12K WD). Instructions are clear, install was easy.

I had luck with JC Whitney a few years ago. they carry a bunch of brands and the hitches can be specific to your vehicle. I though their prices were good too. There are great suggestions above, so it looks like you have a ton of good options.

Aahhhh what the heck, it's pretty quite around here these days.

I wouldn't put a hitch on that truck, you'll probably pull the frame off. Buy a Dodge with a hitch and then all your problems are solved.
