    Yes, we have, but I am gathering support on why a truck is necessary.

    Thanks

    Dont think this is gonna work. Cars, especially small ones, arent made for towing. it wont hold up over time. Besides that it wont look professional. I understand doing what you have to starting out. But go buy a cheap used truck, even a beat up one would look better and serve your purpose better than a civic in my opinion

    I wasn't even aware that there is a trailer hitch available for a Honda Civic. You need to check the owners manual very carefully and see what is advisable on trailer towing with that car. Honda Accord ... maybe. I would not attempt it with a Civic.
