Potential pricing error deal: U-Haul trailer hitches

Retailer:
U-Haul
I was looking to get a hitch installed on my 2016 Mazda CX-3 and was looking around for pricing. I happened to find that you can get a hitch (part only - not installed) from U-Haul online and they are made by Curt. If you go on their hitch page (https://www.uhaul.com/Trailer-Hitches/), the pricing is by default in USD. You can change it to CAD on the upper right hand corner. For my car, the hitch was 149.95$ USD, but when changed to CAD, it fell to 135.95$ CAD! Face With Tears Of Joy There's definitely a bug on their site, as when you check out, no taxes are being charged! I managed to get the hitch for my car shipped for 135.95$ CAD.

I randomly checked a couple of cars and it doesn't work for all cars. However, there are cars that do work, so up to you to search for yours. I did notice that the hitch accessories are priced properly.

Good luck with your hunt. Now, I have to find time to get mine installed! Smiling Face With Open Mouth


Edit: Forgot to mention that it was shipped via FedEx from Brampton, ON, so even though the site is in the US, it is shipped from Canada. I ordered it on Tuesday and received it today (Friday).

There is definitely a glitch in the system. I ordered my hitch for my 2019 Rav4. Two listed, a Curt for 150 USD and Drawtite for $180 USD. When you change to CDN, its $240 and 180 respectively. I ended up ordering the Drawtite for $180 and free shipping and no taxes. I got it last week and installed yesterday.

I don't think it's a price error. I bought one from them a few years ago and it was cheaper in Canada than the USA. A friend of mine got the same deal in store and no one blinked an eye about the price. We were told uhaul sells hitches for cheap to lure people into renting trailers from them.

Naw there are definitely errors. How can you not charge tax? The exchange rate doesn't make sense. It's not on every product just on some. Different makes and models. Its almost like someone is supposed to be changing the exchange rates manually and only did half.

new to this... do I need to buy hitch ball and ball mount with it to install the hitch?

or just the hitch is enough.

I am hoping to install a rack for my bike.

Thank you.

I guess it depends on the bike rack that you have. I just ordered the hitch and none of the accessories, since the rack I have inserts straight into the hitch.

It also only costs $30 to get them to install. Of course this is assuming you dont need the wiring etc. If you just want to put a bike rack on the back you only need the hitch.
I suggest you look up how easy or hard it is to install on your specific vehicle. Some are definitely easier than others. Some you need to jack up. I had to remove exhaust hangars before I did my install.

I would have gladly paid the $30 to have mine installed if I had known. I had to remove my bumper and cut part of the plastic housing in order to fit mine!

What vehicle?
It definitely would have saved me money and headache, but I was being cheap and wanted to do it. Didn't have to cut my bumper though.
