I have the factory Trailer Hitch installed on my 2011 Terrain and I wanted to get a cover for it....because it's ugly sitting out and I'm a weirdo lol

Any ideas on a cover? I'm not talking about a full cover, but something like http://www.amazon.com/New-York-Yankees-Hitch-Cover/dp/B000I2XZ52

I know it doesn't stick out much, so wasn't sure about it. I've never had a trailer hitch on my car so I dunno

Well those are cool, it's just I'm a pretty big Yankees fan, and really didnt want to put a sticker on the rear window because of the wiper back there (didn't want it making noises while going over it or anything)

I just wanted to know if a cover like the one I posted would fit? I don't know if it would stick out far enough (I see that the hitch ends right around the car, so I dont know if it were to clear or not)

again, never owned a trailer hitch before =/

Check the size of your socket if it is 1 1/4 inch before you buy anything. As far as I know it is standard with GMC Terrain the size of 1 1/4 inch, I'm not sure with Nox.

Just measure the width of the opening (square), It will be either 1 1/4" which would be typical on a 4 cylinder terrain, or 2" which would likely be found on a 6 Cylinder truck.

I couldn't find the hitch cover I wanted so I made one from 1/8 inch aluminum plate. I cut it out in the shape of the Harley Davidson emblem and just put a Harely decal on it. Looks like it came form Harely and only cost me $5 (cost of emblem) and about 2-3 hours of my time. Making it myself was a fun project as I enjoy working with metal even though I don't have all the proper tools that would make the job easier. Instead of using the hitch pin I used a 1/2 inch stainless steel bolt and nut to make it a little more difficult to take for someone who liked it more then me.

Draw tite makes a cover for the class II. I use it on my Nox. Just plain rubber but looks better that just an open square.

I've got a little rubber boot from CURT Mfg that fits snug into the opening. Nice and clean. But is has fallen out in car washes. :thumb:

I bought the trapezoidal shaped chrome cover with my hitch. It goes well with the chrome package's chrome bumper cover above the hitch. Almost looks like it's supposed to be there.

etrailer.com sells a Bully hitch step that fits the 1 1/4" receiver. It's polished stainless steel. I think I'm going to use that as a hitch cover. I am in Manhattan quite a bit so it will provide the additional bumper protection from the inconsiderate parallel parkers. It will also help when washing the roof of the vehicle.
