Ok, thanks HBWT. Although I used a vacuum line cap instead. And yes, I did notice a little droning sound, but I can live with it.

I'll wait and see until it arrives. I haven't installed a hitch but I reckon it's not a rocket science. I see that you've installed the hitch yourself, is there anything I should look out for?
