    Trailer hitch for 2014 Soul?

    Hi,

    I have a 2014 Soul. I would like to install a hitch so that I can use a hitch mount bike rack. I see plenty of hitches for the previous model but I can't seem to find one for the current model. Does anyone know if there's one available or will be available before this summer?

    Thanks

    Hello and welcome. Have not seen a trailer hitch yet, don't think anyone else has either. You can get several different roof arrangements but they may be a tad more expensive than the trailer hitch unless you go with a generic that hooks onto the top of the hatch.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I would go with a roof rack but I worry about smashing my bikes into my garage on accident. I know it sounds like a really dumb thing to do but you'd be surprised how often it happens to people.

    Understand completely and it ain't cheap. I plan on doing it but not for bikes. I did see some generic bike racks that may fit on the rear with straps. You can find them at most any accessory outlet, but there may be a trailer hitch come out soon. Those companies that do them usually work up a prototype fairly fast. Keep looking, you may see one in just a few weeks or so. If you go to the Forum button at the top left of the page, there is a link to CardID, one of the site's sponsors. They carry all kinds of these things and you may see a trailer hitch pop up there also. Good luck.

    U-Haul now has the trailer hitch for the 2014 Kia Soul..... check with your local U-Haul dealer. I just ordered one recently. It is taking extra time to get due to bad weather up north, suppose to arrive at last this week.

    The companies that make trailer hitches.....U-Haul, DrawTite, Curt, etc, will probably all have hitches for the 2014 Soul, as long as it's been available.

    I have the Curt hitch and it was a piece of cake to put on. With some help from a friend, we had it on in about 30 minutes. NO holes to drill and no blood shed.
    Everything just bolted up right, the first time.

    The little Soul can be a great hauler!



    Happy Hauling!

    So sorry to say U-Haul does not have a hitch for the 2014, I ordered one online through U-Haul, paid for it and even got a Order/Reservation confirmation number and a date to have it installed. Turns out the vendor CURT Hitches lied to U-Haul telling them they make a hitch for the 2014 then confessed to them yesterday they decided not to offer one for the 2014 Kia Soul. So sorry to tell you they have them..... and it turns out they do not.

    Major bummer. I looked them up and was stunned that they even had them. Someone will make one for sure, wonder why Curt decided not to. You at least get an E for effort, thanks.

    Good news I just spoke to Curt MFG. and I was told that they are going into production next month for the 2014 Kia Soul Trailer Hitch. Brock Lee I assume you ordered yours through U-Haul.com ?? if so you should be ok with getting your hitch but not until next month. Did they give you a delivery date? I also got a call just a few minutes ago from U-Haul Headquarters telling me they will have the hitch available for the 2014 Kia Soul early next month, Curt told me around mid March same a s U-Haul. They designed the hitch for the 2014 Soul but it is not into production yet. I was also told I get my hitch for FREE for all the crap I have been going through.....glad they manned up and admitted they screwed up and want to make up for it. So if anyone else wants to get a hitch from U-Haul you may have to wait to place your order since U-Haul says they are removing the hitch from their website until it is actually available which makes sense to me. So this adventure has a happy ending.....I hope.....
