Re: HCH I with Thule T2 1.25 hitch
This is a Uhaul brand hitch, same as the drawtite. I picked this one since the price was basically the same installed and if it get's damanged, they replace it.
This has a 1 1/4 inch receiver. Your rack should be either 2" or 1 1/4" and the kit should contain the adapters to go either way.
Tell Uhaul it's a hide away hitch and print the pictures of my install it should be clear to them.
The bike shop you bought the rack from should know too what size receiver you need to install. If it's a 2" receiver, no way that's going to happen. Take back the rack and get the 1 1/4" if this is primarily going on the Civic.
Hope that helps.
BTW, its been on for 8 months and no issues at all.
