Default Finally installed my allroad tow hitch

Since I had a couple of days off for the New Year I decided to install the tow hitch that I got for Christmas. Overall, it went pretty well with only one small hiccup and one oops on my part. The hiccup was that two of the mounting holes on the hitch were slightly out of alignment. By about a quarter of the hole but enough to not allow the bolts to go through. Five minutes with the drill to enlarge them slightly and all was well. Overall it's a well made piece and I'm very happy with it. The oops was when I was putting everything back together I got most of the nuts back on for the bumper cover and then realized (once I tripped over it) that I forgot to hook up the parking sensors. [headbang] Off goes the bumper cover again. Oh well. Here's some pictures of the install and hopefully this summer my wife and I will find a nice tear drop trailer to tow around camping.

Sorry for the crappy pics. It was really bright outside and not as bright in the garage so the glare is terrible.

Congratulations! The allroad is a very good "tractor". My camping trailer is a 23 feet regular camping trailer weighing up to 4000 lbs with all our camping stuff on/in.....A tear drop will just be like a feather flotting in your back......Good luck!!!
