WTB Luggage Rack, Trailer Hitch for 08 Redline
« on: November 26, 2010, 12:46:57 AM »

As the title says I would like to buy a Luggage Rack and Trailer Hitch for an 08 Redline. New or used, in decent condition, painted or chrome considered on the rack.

I would also consider a used windscreen in good condition.

Thanks,

Jim :cool:

If you have the stock exhaust, Curt makes a hitch that will work with your Redline.

Thanks, I do.

I will buy new if I have to, but wouldn't mind a bit of a deal.

so i have the curt 11119.  i *know* this won't work with the stock exhaust, but my previous 'vert gxp had a solo street race setup so it was never an issue.  now, with the coupe gxp, i'd like to avoid the noise/drone and remain stock, but not compromise the safety of the hitch by cutting a piece of it off to fit.  which hitch works with no modifications?  i seem to recall it being the curt 11114, which has a more "tubular" appearance (rather than squared off).  am i right?  can anybody confirm?

I agree with DBG
We've all done alot of traveling and have the "knowhows" on packing a kappa without a luggage rack or trailer :poke:   :D

Good idea.

I saw a Sky with hooks behind the seats once. Are there any specific that people find that works best without risk to the seats?
