Has anyone heard of putting a bolt-on hitch on the '06. Is it possible? If so, what kind and where to get? I have a jet ski that we bring down to the coast often and I'd like to be able bring the black ground jet down at the same time without having to bring another vehicle.

All I can tell you is that I Have once seen a Z06 towing a trailer as it was passing me the other way. I had to do a double take on that one. It looked like a small trailer for track tires.

So it seems possible...

Yes, it is possible. Call your local U-Haul, they have a nice low profile hitch, that you cannot even tell is there when no trailer attached. Another popular brand is Da'Lan.

Peace,

John Ames, runs his Z06 in SCCA Pro Solo (II) and drives it to every meet. He tows a small trailer (aluminum) gets to the track, changes tires, then beats the pants off of everybody in Super Stock. He drove from Colorado to Oscoda, Mich last week. The trailer is small but pretty cool and the hitch is small also, but it works. I'm just wondering if he makes suspension adjustments after arriving at the meet or if he drives those F1's with all that negative camber dialed in on the interstate.

EKLERS lists a hitch as well, about $115. I have one on my 90 cp to bring race tires to the events. I have a small 5' clam shell trailer holds 4 tires, air tank, jack and tools, 2 chairs and a tent. Life is good. Drive there, AC on, 30 mpg, change tires, beat the pants off all these "race cars"; change back, and cruise home! It tows 80mph like its not there, and for vacation, just put the floor in and load luggage in and go!

Hello everybody. Brand new to the forum. I am also wondering how to carry more luggage when I go home on leave. I currently don't have a Vette right now. Hopefully next summer. I'm in the Air Force stationed in Cheyenne, WY. I'm originally from East Tennessee. So I have kind of a long trip to make when I go home every year. A while back I had seen an ad in a vette magazine for this company that makes body style trailers for vette's. It looked they cut the back end off a Z06/conv, put wheels, tires, and a hitch on it so you could attach it to the back of the car. I've been looking for that ad in every vette magazine I can find and can't find that ad again. Has anybody seen that?

It might be that. I clicked on one of the links in that page to get a different view from the back and I believe the ones I saw in that ad were actually the same width as the car. Not really that important of an issue to me, just curious.
