I saw that this model is the one for this car: 36426 Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class II - 1-1/4inch - 36426 My question is if this hitch receiver works for a trailer that the specification are: Width Feet 4 Length Feet 6 Load Capacity lbs. 1650 Tire Size 12-in Axle lbs. 2000 Floor Material Wire mesh Ramp Gate Yes Lighted to DOT Specs Yes Ball Size 1-7/8-in Thank you for the information.

The Draw-Tite Class II hitch # 36426 is a confirmed fit for your 2009 Pontiac G6 and the hitch itself offers a maximum towing capacity of 3500-lbs.

If your trailer has a 2K-rated axle then the hitch will have plenty of capacity to tow it, but you'll also want to check the G9 owner's manual since the car itself may have a different towing capacity than the hitch. The lower-rated item determines overall capacity. A hitch installation video is linked for you.

Towing also requires a ball, mount, hitch ball and a wiring harness for the trailer if it has lighting. The recommended ball mount is part # 36065 and with it you can use 1-7/8-inch hitch ball # 19256. For a wiring harness use # 118439 which offers an easy plug-in installation at the car's taillights as shown in the linked video.
