Here I am, another winter with my imiev, wanting to make some longer trips - and still don't have a trailer hitch installed, so I haven't thought any further about a pusher trailer either.... Let us know how your hitch installation goes!!!



And - to my dismay - Torklift has discontinued making the trailer hitch for the iMiev ;-(


iwatson - I can't send PM's for some reason - but I am interested. Please PM me your email or something? Thanks!!

I don't really care if everybody has it. Because I'm getting ready to put one of my i-miev's up for sale! More on that later.

Shucks- did you call and ask? It didn't come up online after a recent website update and may be related to the returned i-MiEV hitch that I mentioned earlier in this thread, but they build 'em one at a time and certainly still have the template.

yeah, I called Torklift and I called Hitchsource up in Hood River. Torklift said that they discontinued - they didn't offer to make one. And Hitchsource said that the one that they had on their website was a mistake and they were taking it down ;-(
BUT - a user here has offered to sell me his, and it has a 2" receiver - so that is a bonus.
It seems like the last one in existence ;-(
