I want to pick up a class 2 or 3, hidden hitch, 2" receiver for my 06 Town and Country with stow n go seats. I'm not sure if I can buy one locally, so what are some good websites? I see etrailer.com advertised here, but I'm wanting to say after a quick look there and JC Whitney, JC was a bit cheaper.

I don't know what the scoop on this etrailer group is, they just started showing up on google searches and stuff AFAIK...

Heres another question. How much more noticeable would a regular class 2/3 hitch be vs. the hidden hitch brand? I was originally gonna pick one up at U-haul for around $150, but another site I visit mentioned, by multiple ppl, that they installed the hidden hitch brand so its less noticeable AND they called regular hitches driveway gougers, etc. As of now, I'm only adding a hitch for a bike rack and similar accessories, but who knows what I may do with it years down the road.

Just for the record: class I hitches usually have 1 1/4" reciever holes, while III & up are 2" holes.

2" Hitch acessories are way more common than the smaller ones. Go with the Class III.

The'd be the sam ammount of time & hassel to install, so go bigger.

I stand corrected. Either way, get the 2" size. If it were me buying the hitch, I'd go with the Class III. You never know what you might buy later on or what a buddy will want you to haul.
