Today on our 2015 Chevrolet Sonic Sedan, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Draw-Tite Sport Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver Class 1, part number 24876. Here's what it looks like once it's installed. As you can see, it's got a nice black powder-coated finish. Nice large ring style safety chain loops. This is a Class 1 hitch, so it's only going to be able to be used with the Class 1 accessories. This hitch has a 200 pound tongue weight, which is our downward force and a 2000 pound towing weight, which is the amount that we're pulling. Now, you want to check in with your owner's manual or your manufacturer to make sure that your vehicle is able to tow that kind of weight.

On the bottom here is our safety chain loops. This is a conventional loop style suitable for a wide variety of chain hooks that are out there.

If you plan on doing any towing I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24878. The recommended ball mount is # 3590. Then for a 1-7/8 inch ball I recommend #...
