We are wanting to put a hitch on our 2000 V6 Rondo. Total weight of trailer and hitch should never exceed 500-600 pounds including trailer. Want to used this for tent camping and need a bit of extra space.

I cannot finds a hitch for this year Rondo.
Are there any solutions out there I am missing?
THANKS

I believe Kia didn't start making the Rondo model until 2007.
Unless you are from the EU or parts of Australasia or Asia, then the Carens started in 1999. So firstly, where are you from?

Wow, huge DUH moment. We have been talking about selling my '2000' Dodge Ram truck. That year was just stuck in my head. My wife's Kia is a 2008.
Thanks for the wake up.
No wonder the hitch is so easy to find now.....

lots of choices out there; I've had a hitch on my 08 Rondo V6 for 3 yrs. Pull a boat trailer with total wt of 660 lbs. No probs. etrailer.com has a couple of choices. As I recall, DIY install was not too bad.

I have the 2008 Kia Rondo V6 and was told that only the curt trailer hitch rated for 2,000lbs was available. This is the link hitchweb gave me and I purchased Kia Rondo Trailer Hitch - Curt 11031 — hitchweb

Maximum tongue weight on this hitch is 200lbs. I searched around before I ordered and was only given this option - hitchweb had the best pricing and gave me free shipping . Good Luck on your hunt!

I had UHaul install a trailer hitch and wiring when I first got the car, was about $200 installed and it's been great for past 5 years now.
