Honda wants $700.00 plus labor to install a hitch for my 05 ODY.

I just want to pull a snowmobile.

Any cheaper options?

TIA

Does the $700 include the PS cooler, transmission cooler, wiring harness, and air deflector? If so, that's a pretty good price! I've been quoted $900 for the parts only.

I agree, that's a good price. I wouldn't go on the cheap if you are pulling a snowmobile.

I was quoted $665 + tax for the entire package at one of the dealerships in PA. Trailer and harness is doable for me. The coolers are a little trickier. Would probably need some spare clips to replace the ones I'd break when both the front and rear bumpers are removed.

Just my opinion, but if you are just towing a small utility trailer and a snowmobile, I think the tranny cooler and PS cooler are probably overkill. I'm guessing that you are probably over your warrantee on the transmission. I had Uhaul put my hitch (Class III) for $180 installed....its a nice unit and bought the wiring harness from Etrailer.com for like $40.
If you were going to be hauling a popup or boat I would say yes on the tranny cooler, but for just a utility trailer and sled I think its not necessary.
