Trailer Hitches--Anything new going on?

I have a leased 2015. I'd like to put a receiver hitch on it so I can transport bicycles. I've seen the various stealth models out there, but I can't see paying upwards of $300 for a receiver hitch for a leased car. I also don't want to cut into the bumper, for the same reason. Finally, I only plan to use it during late Spring and early Fall, so removable would be good. I'll be carrying two mountain bikes.

What have people's experiences been with the Curt 112211?

It uses a 1 1/4 socket, so I don't think it will add much to the bottom end. It's not very attractive, but I don't think it will scrape.

I'm also toying with the idea of making it more like the Stealth hitch, which would involve splitting the plates that hold the receiver and using bolts, spacers, and two heavy duty plates with four holes drilled in them to hold it on while I'm using it. Any thoughts on that?

Also have the Curt on mine. The bike carrier I have can be 1 1/4 or 2 so its easy to switch out between my SUV and car as needed which is why I wanted a hitch style in the first place since I already had a decent bike carrier. Mounted mine pretty quickly and easily. Had mine for roughly 2 years and in the spring to fall months I have my bike on the car multiple times a week with no issues. I have scraped it once pulling into a grass parking area where the road drops off about as much as a standard curb. Thats about it.
