    Hello TW members,

    I just wanted your opinions on this trailer hitch cover. I know its my choice and I should go with if I like it or not, but it doesn't hurt to get others opinions. This is a Los Angeles Dodgers trailer hitch cover. PLEASE DONT HATE IF YOU DONT LIKE THE DODGERS. This is not a post about the BEST or WORST team. This is simply a thread about peoples opinions on trailer hitch covers and/or more specifically this one. When I first noticed it online I really wanted it. When I received it, I didnt realize it was so big. Let me know what you guys think...and if you think this is a worthless thread then just Click the left arrow in the upper left hand corner of your window and move on. Also, what do you guys think of trailer hitch covers in general? All ideas welcome...

    Thanks!

    Heres a pic of what it looks like on my truck...

    It's not bad, maybe a bit big but overall I like it. I think anything that helps to make the truck "yours" is generally a nice addition.

    I've got this one:

    I saw both of those...but I like the one I have better...Just didnt realize it was so big. The bottle cap opener is awesome, but it would rarely get used since I have one on my keychain :D

    I think it looks great. I have been trying to find a well made Yankee cover.

    I do agree that it is a bit big, but nice looking regardless.

    Not bad. I leave the drawbar and ball on cause when I want to tow I don't feel like messing with it. Plus when some dumbass rearends you it doesn't mess your bumper up.
