I'm looking at something like this, like the way it uses the factory tie-down locations for mounting!

Wiring for trailer?

I installed a 1 1/4 inch receiver on my 3-door Yaris to be able to transport a couple of bikes. I never tried to tow even a small trailer because I could not find a location where I could tap into the rear lights.
Where is the most convenient place to get at the rear wiring?

Purchased from etrailers for 88 bucks + shipping. It's a class 1 hitch but it was easy to install and does its bike carrier duties perfectly. Couldn't be happier with the setup.

Thats a very good price, might have concider this one instead! I want to get a 40"x48" utility trailer set up for towing spare tires and small box for tools and such, just for going to local Auto-Xs and track events.

Heres an idea for us Yaris owners that want to take a few things with us but don't want everything taking up space in the car. This is also a good idea for the weekend Auto-Xer or Track Event junkie, who wants to be able to lock up your stuff at Hotels and some Tracks, I hate to say!!

Here's mine. Much cheaper ($1100.00 CAD) and lighter (260lbs without top,300lbs with top on). Not sure if available in the U.S. though. It is made by Stirling.

2011 Yaris Automatic towing 14' boat

http://m.flickr.com/lightbox?id=9627553856I towed a 14' aluminum boat over 100 miles. The Yaris handled it better than a lot of cars and trucks I've towed with in the past. Putting it in the lake was easy too!

No, but for $107 you can buy one and bolt it on in under 30 minutes. The Curt 11050 fits all liftbacks from 2006 through 2014:

According to the service manual, the structural metal of the car is the same for 2012 through 2015, and since the 11050 works for 2nd and 3rd gen, if you could find an equivalent one down there you would be all set.

If you are going to have one custom welded, copying that same style would be the way to go. That one mounts between the two rear tie down points and the end plates are designed to tuck the cross member up under the bumper skin so you only see the receiver and the chain loops.

I would just drop the receiver below the lights. I wouldn't want an off center hitch on a small car.
