I bought my towing hitch & accessories at www.etrailer.com
Lots of selections & cheap prices. Free ground shipping on order above $150.00.

Does that hitch bolt right up? It looks like theres threaded holes where the hitch would attach to.
I'm thinking of installing a hitch before winter and the salt gets in the threads.

I just noticed on my Outlander if you tap the turn signal lever once to the lane change position the signals will blink 3 or 4 times. A neat feature for changing lanes.
Maybe a lot of new vehicles do this but this is the first time I've seen it.

There are 3 threaded holes on each side to bold the hitch. Holes on the right side are directly above the muffler, so you have to loosen or remove the muffler to access them. I had mine installed by a mechanic $50 for a 20 min job. Local dealership quoted $600 for hitch kit & installation. Correction, 99cents shipping for order over $150 from eTrailer

I checked out the hitches. Great prices. Which brand did you get? I had a Hidden Hitch on our van and it worked out well.

I purchased the Curt towing hitch. It was the only model available in 5/07. It looks like they offer 2 more models, but from the pictures, I don't think the new models would fit on 07 Outlander. Check for installation instructions & drawing before deciding on which model. The Curt hitch protrudes out about 3" below the tailgate, but I think it would be the case for any hitch on Outlander due to the location of the spare tire. Good luck.

Yeah, the ones I've seen hang kind of low but like you said, there's probably no alternative. Thanks for the replies.
