Default Hitch receiver

Wanting a small class I 1-/4” receiver for a bike rack. I know there is the strap-on style but I find them annoying. The receiver type is way easier install and remove.

What cheap options are there? Or, is there a nice hidden type available?

I guess it’s best to peruse the auto wreckers. Would probably get it for next to nothing.

Yeah 1-1/4” (typo)

Wow those are steep in price. I think finding one from a wrecker may be that way to go. With the money saved I can just refinish it.

A hundred bucks to solve a major car problem?

Sounds like you need a new hobby.

I think I have the one pictured in the middle. Bought it as a kit from a Volvo dealer that was having a clearance sale maybe 30 years ago. Can with the wiring harness and everything. I still have the installation instructions if you'd like a copy.

$100 can be spent elsewhere on the car.

This is just a hitch.

Take it as you want. It's an observation based on real world experience. Not many 200's in yards anymore. If you find one and can get it for 25.00, you scored. Also depends on how much you value your time. Good luck and hope you do score

Absolutely, $100 won't even get your car to the mainland and back.

Accepted.

... also, the costs of taking a ferry to the mainland is just a little bit higher up on the priority scale of where to spend my money. I got patience and never buy anything emotionally.

It's not how much you earn, it's how much you keep.

hah the humor. Those are my hitches and only reason I have them is because I got them in the yards....over 10 years or so and hoarded. Now they are for sale. What can you even buy for a 100 bucks now days? Now shipping on the other hand isnt cheap anymore either. To WA is 45 bucks. To Georgia its 81. Dont see many 200 series in yards anymore either fyi. Its not like you could have your pick like 5 years ago. Those days are over. Only people that will have this stuff are hoarders or guys that still have or are into these cars. And thats if they wanna sell their stuff.

I have a couple of them in Washington state - I'm guessing you are in Canada. If you're ready to make a road trip once the border opens, meet me in Everett for a Volvo parts pick up!

Yup!

A wise man once told me it’s better to spend your money on an experience (travel, adventures, etc) instead of objects.
