  1. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    The attachment is meant to hold a flag, but this cantilever umbrella works nicely. Keeps the rain off the rear entrance of the Voltebago. Swings 360 degrees to follow the sun. Bungee it to a nearby tree to hold position. Just make sure the wind does not pick up in the night. No, I have...

    Hi there, I've spent the last few hours reading the numerous excellent threads about trailer hitches for the Gen 1 (and Gen 2, but mine's a 2013). I really appreciate everyone's contributions: so much useful information! This post has a question, but is also to help consolidate the info for...

    Installed the Drawtite hitch today- after reading a few of the install threads here and watching the etrailer video on Youtube.(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ulg3qaTC55E) One major difference saved me a bunch of time. Instead of pulling the rear bottom panel I left in place and trimmed it...
  4. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Ordered a new Draw-Tite 24947 hitch for my 2018 Volt. It arrived yesterday, to my surprise, with no box. It was just wrapped in a few skimpy pieces of cardboard and a lot of poly-wrap. I've ordered a lot of things online in my life, and never seen anything like this! It seems to have survived...

    Following video is a time-lapse of the rear bumper removal and install of a towing hitch/bracket: Looks quite involved. Here I thought I could snake my dashcam's rear camera through existing license plate light mount. It's not looking to easy-peasy now.

    Do you use a bike rack with your Volt? Are you happy with your bike rack? Can you post a picture of your bike rack and tell us about it? Bentbiker suggested some questions that I've modified here since I'm really looking for personal experiences: 1.) Did you install a hitch receiver? 2.) Do...

    Hi, Just wanted to share some info on pulling a trailer with a Volt. I searched for info before making my trip and found very little, so maybe this will help others who wonder about the Volt and pulling trailers. I drove from El Paso, Texas to Houston Texas last weekend - 15 long hours mostly...

    As some of you may recall I installed a Torklift Eco Stealth Hitch (1.25"). Well I found a nice trailer on Craigslist locally (5'x8') and I figured I would update you all with some pics as well as EV and MPG figures. On to the pics! As you can see the trip today was 91.3 miles with...
