Exclamation Hidden Hitch...good or bad idea??

i recently bought a jetski, the only problem is my daily drive is my mustang and its all i have i saw this hidden hitch that u can buy online it says towing capacity is 2000lbs but the jetski is no where near that weight, question is is this safe for my mustang to be towing a jetski, and in the summer might be every weekend for a long time lol???

im sure it could be done, but hey....its a mustang.

you could always try to get something off of craigslist. maybe an older truck or something with a hitch for cheap.

I saw a V6 Mustang with a Hidden Hitch the other day, and it's far from hidden. It sticks out like a sore thumb.

they are nice if you get stuck in snow but ur in florida so id think ur ok.. but other than that NO WAY.. its a mustang, not a tow vehicle. its like the 57 belair with thier little 2 sleeper wagon deals it just shouldn't be done. and jet ski weighs what 800lbs another 200 for the trailer?? just pull it with ur puppy THAT will look bedder or a VESPA

cams, and all basic bolt ons, arizen seats, cowl hood, and now my buckets got a hole in it (meaning im broke) but when i fix it ill have gears and some trany work

Another NO vote from me. Personally I wouldn't care if the hitch was so hidden that it was invisible, I wouldn't pull anything with my Mustang. I agree with brendanryan0510, see if you can pick up a cheap truck/tow vehicle off CL or something.
