Yes. Is it a class 3 that also bolts to the bumper?

i know its a class 3 Curt hitch, but i have not seen it. Guy offering it locally on craigslist for a great price had it on his 01 Astro that was totaled by his kid. Waiting for him to email me back again so we can make arrangement for me to go get it (hopefully)

Cool! If it's a class 3, it should look like this one:

It does not attach to the bumper like some of the others do.

picked it up today, Class III hitch for $50. Thanks Craigslist!

Now I just need to get some bolts to mount it, get a ball mount, ball and trailer (lol :D ) oh, and a wiring harness..
