    Ok. I'm looking to get me a hitch. But for some reason nobody in europe makes one for the K5. So I looked into an american made one. Those are $120 over there where you are. But when they get here they are suddenly about $500. So now I think I will just build it myself. My question is now, can somebody give me the inner size of that square tube. And also that hole where the bolt goes through. This way I can go on, while waiting for the intert and ball.

    The inside dimension of the hitch tubing is 2". The hole for the pin is 5/8" on mine (Hidden Hitch Class IV).

    You ever consider eBay? I know you can buy them on there and some folks ship to Europe. Might be $200 bones with shipping for a good hitch but I bet you could do it if you checked it out and decided that building one wasn't the way to go after all.... maybe even try posting in the parts for sale/wanted section... maybe someone has one they'd be willing to sell you and ship your way?
