Yes You Can: Installing A Trailer Hitch On Your 2011-’14 Ford Mustang: Video

Chances are slim that you purchased your previous-generation Ford Mustang with the intention of doing a whole lot of towing with it, but happily, we can report that it is possible. All it requires is the installation of a fitting trailer hitch.

In this video from, we see just how easy it is to bolt that manufacturer’s Draw-Tite Sport Frame custom fit class 1 trailer hitch on a 2011 Ford Mustang convertible. The end result is a fifth-generation Ford pony car with a trailer tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs., and an overall trailering capacity of 2,000 lbs. Just as important, the Ford Mustang is left with a clean, unspoiled rear view.

This custom fit trailer hitch from is powder-coated to resist corrosion and wear, and installs pretty easily onto the Ford Mustang’s frame with just four bolts. To find out just how easy, be sure to watch the video above.
