Thank you for the information and reassurance. For additional reassurance, my 2008-vintage instruction manual does say towing is permitted :-). I have the Curt hitch and an Alpaca carrier (alpacacarriers.com). Alpaca sells a heavy-duty u-bolt assembly to stabilize the carrier in the hitch, and I've seen some references on the forum to the thread size for the tow hook receptacles.
