I want to get a little 5x8 trailer to haul my bikes/quads.(1 at a time maby 2 bikes)anyways my truck is a 95 suburban 4x4 3/4ton on 31's so it sits kind of high for a stock truck.I could spend the extra 200 bucks to get a reciver hitch but why should I?couldn't I just use the holes in the bummper to mount a ball?is there any way to make it so a little trailer mounted this way wouldn't be tilting back?thanx

With a receiver hitch you can get a slide-in that drops the ball down substantially...I can't think of a decent way to do that from the bumper.

Get a proper reciever to haul anything you want . You never know , when you turn pro you`ll be pulling your bike hauler or travel trailer all over North America !!

Get the reciever. If you arn't careful its easy to turn into your bumper if thats where you mount the ball. IMHO
