Default Trailer Hitch

Anyone put a class II trailer hitch on a 2006 camry? I used to have a hitch

Do these hitches really take away from the backend look of the car or are
they somewhat hidden when not in use? I have yet to see a camry with a hitch
on the road to see for myself.

The Camry bumper is vinyl plastic, over resilient foam over the actual
steel arced pieces.
The plastic bumper cover had been neatly cut back underneath and an
upright section of the hitch welded to the back of the two steel box

There was another 1/4" thick steel leg that bolted to the underside
beneath the spare tire holder in the center.
Looked solid and professionally done - but not what I would call
Overall appearance was unobstrusive - all you could see was the
