The main purpose is to augment cargo capacity by having a tow hitch carrier. I know the tongue weight limit is 200lbs. But I don't expect to carry a lot of heavy stuff. That said, the heavy stuff is probably pretty valuable and I wouldn't want it sitting out exposed like that either. So that stuff will most likely be in the car while other less valuable stuff would be strapped down to the carrier. But probably the first thing I'll get is a bike rack carrier. Still trying to decide on which one to get that provides enough versatility, light weight, and convenience.
Talking to eTrailer, they said I can tow 2000lbs easily without putting any strain on the chassis or the engine/trans. With this in mind, I've thought about getting a motorcycle trailer so I can tow one of my motorcycles with me to the beach.
Yes, I saw the guide on doing the factory fog light install. Waiting on eBay to have another of their 10/15% off coupon days. Also, need to get together with my dealer's parts department as there are now two different factory fog light kits. One which is what I've seen installed and most pervasive is the halogen H11 bulb unit. The other is the newer LED fog light. I got a part number for it but apparently there are a number of different part numbers tied to it. From what I remember, the list price for the LED kit is about $399. Can't seem to find much info online about this newer kit.
Doing some more research, it looks as if I might be able to get an aftermarket head unit to get rid of the crap Entune 3.0 system. Joying has an Android head unit with a 8" screen where the screen can be adjusted up and down on how it mounts to the main body. After much research on the 2019 MY cars, we need to get a single DIN unit but with a 8" screen to fit into the stock opening. And the single DIN body has to be at the bottom of the 8" screen. I might end up paying the place which did the 3M film install to do the install of this unit. Because the unit Joying has which fits my car is a universal unit and not Toyota specific. I don't know what will happen with trying to get the stock back up camera to work with the Joying head unit. I guess I could just replace the stock back camera all together. But would like to keep things as stock as possible.
Also, looking into replacing the auto dimming rear view mirror with a Gentex auto dimming rear view mirror with Homelink. My BMW has Homelink in the rear view mirror and frankly, I've gotten spoiled. Rather not have the two garage remotes I have not pinned to the sun visor. I'm hoping the stock harness that powers the factory auto dimming mirror will be a direct connect to the Gentex.
ETA: On the topic of towing. For some reason, the European models for the C-HR do have an official tow rating from Toyota. Toyota officially states they can do 1500lbs. Why this is different for the US market, I don't know. Found this out reading through the UK C-HR forum. And Toyota offers a factory tow hitch kit which can be installed by a dealer. I seem to recall one of the posters in the UK forum saying they had this done.
