Ditto on the back-up camera as well. If I did more towing/hooking up by myself, I'd have one in a instant! They are only $319 in parts + install if you already have a touch screen radio and that is about 1/2 the cost of a new bumper if you hit the tongue hooking up!
Ill definitely give the dealership a call about that. I actually do have a touch screen tv so ill look into back up camera as well

Just wanted to bump this topic for a update.

I bought a curt class IV hitch which was great. I installed it myself which was a lil frustrating but was done in a about a hour or so. I bought a 4 pin wiring harness from etrailer. Everything worked out great. I towed my car on a dolly for about 4 hours which only used about a half a tank of gas.

Now im looking into upgrading to a 7 pin wiring harness and a brake controller so i can use a actual trailor in the future. Thanks again for those who helped
