Hitch question for a Bushtec trailer

Post by Algie1100 »



Hi
Just bought a nice used Bushtec trailer for my 2015 Goldwing. Do I nave to install a Bushtec hitch or will any vertical hitch work. The Bushtec looks like a real PIA to install. The Kuryakyn or Add On look much easier to install.
Thanks in advance.

Any of them will work. The bushtec is a well made hitch though.

you definitely want to buy a hitch that has the two vertical braces that go up and bolt to the frame, not to the saddle bag mounts. When viewed from the rear, it looks like the figure "H"
