Default Curt trailer towing hitch

Has anyone installed a Curt brand trailer hitch on a Tacoma ?
This seems to be the best looking one in the under $ 200 price class.
If so what do you think of them?

Also looking around for any other hitches, any recommendations ?

I doubt that I will ever haul anything larger than the lawn mower trailers,
certainly nothing like a camper. The class 3 types seem to be about the
same as the lesser classes price wise so I intend to get one rated for that
class. I do know that I will have to get a ball to match the trailer, so
will probably have to buy a seperate ball at a later date.

The Curt package for lights, hitch and ball is around $ 180 including
shipping.

Ebay number EPID75284638

I put one on a 2012 CR-V. The hitch was well made and the instructions
were very easy to follow. I conversed via email with Curt several times
WRT the hitch and wiring harness. They were prompt, courteous, and
accurate in their responses. Based on this experience, I would
recommend them.

I put a class 1 Curt hitch (used only for a bike rack) on a 2007 Camry.
The instructions were clear. The bolt holes didn't quite match up
correctly though. For one bolt I had to use a slightly smaller diameter
class 8 nut and bolt in place of the supplied bolt which should have
gone into the threaded part on the car body.
