chicago location for trailer hitch installation
« on: February 14, 2006, 08:43:51 PM »
Anyone in chicagoland area have good luck getting a trailer hitch installed?  I have an mc9 and want to make sure the one who installs the hitch understands the mechanics of the engine cradle, etc..  don't want anything falling out unexpectedly   :o

Best Regards,

Nicest trailer hitches specifically for MCI were done by Fred in north Florida.

 Just Dont let him slip old ACE extension cord in the walls!!

But for a Hitch,   Fred Hobie is great.

Cold in ORD , come on down!

Actually, while I would love to visit Florida, and it is certainly cold in ORD, a Florida trip is not in the cards.  Though it is tempting to have Fred Hobie do the work - for sure. 

If anyone has good experience with a Chicago land area knowledgeable hitch installer - for our MC9, that would be terrific.  Else, a trip to Florida may be sooner than I think..

Thanks again - Phil
