Think twice before buying
Bought this for 2015 Audi Q5 and should have gone for Hidden Hitch or Draw-Tite. First is Curt refuses to put any packing materials in their hitch shipment. Ordered one and it was all scratched up and half sticking out of the box upon arrival. Second one arrived worse off than the first. I had to buy spray paint to cover all of the scratches and dings. The biggest problem over appearance is the sketchy way the hitch attaches to the underside of car. Take a look there are better options.
Time to surf fish
My Curt front mount hitch is the perfect solution. We do a lot of surf fishing and when mounting my rod rack on the back of truck I was unable to put my tailgate down. With the front mount I'm able to lower the tailgate and have full access to the bed of the truck. And if the weather is bad you can always sit in the cab and watch your poles from the comfort of your vehicle.
