|Double///A\\\Ron||I'd love to be able to tow a motorcycle trailer. It would make my purchasing area a lot larger and I wouldn't need a friend with a truck.|

Not that I tow with my Focus but I did tow with a 1.9l Jetta TDI (2000# rating) and will be towing with a 1.8l Corolla (1500 # rating). People shouldn't be afraid to tow with a small car if they do it in a safe way.

|E365/5||I've towed with light, 4 cylinder cars for years and it's a breeze. I keep it to the unbraked trailer limits published in the European owners manual. For the Focus (1.0 ecoboost, 1.6 duratec, and 1.6 ecoboost) that's around 1,400 lbs. and 165 lbs. on the tongue.|

Yeah, that sounds about right...

|FFhb13||Lol, I'm about 3/4's through my 2013 manual and I think it said you cannot tow anything with your ford focus....I was hoping to be able to tow something small, like a Uhaul unit when camping.|

I just got a Westfalia 307459 swan neck trailer hitch. Had it shipped to the USA from PF Jones in England. I like the way this attaches to the chassis much better than the Curt/Hidden Hitch/Draw Tite units. I also don't like the 1-1/4" receiver square tube system - too much slop. This swan neck bolts rigidly. Was about $315 with UPS shipping (shipping was $145 of that). Arrived in only 3 business days.
Paint job arrived a little banged-up so I put some primer on the bare spot and a few coats of gloss black spray.
I'll post more pictures when I install it.

I had to dive deeper to prove it, only shows in that link to Instructions.
You wouldn't have seen it in a quick read.

|Toadster||Ohh, I didn't notice the 60290 number there. Well that removes any uncertainty for fitment, at least.|
