No cutting, I also did the the install myself.
It’s very simple, you’ll also fit underneath without the need to jack the car.
Tow capacity can be tricky, your hitch, Ball, Ball Mount, Vehicle, Tires, Axle will all have a max capacity. My curt hitch on my micra is rated for 1000lbs, my Micra is rated for 2000lbs and a max hitch tongue weight of only 100lbs. So can it pull 2000lbs? yea probably can it do it safely and stop appropriately, I would say no probably not.

We're considering one of those Leesure-Lite pop uip trailers built in Osoyoos BC, apparently a motorcycle (cruiser) can tow one of those. About 300 lbs overall weight empty, and about 20 lbs at the tounge:

did you find a solution? I am looking to install a hitch on my Micra, not sure what to buy.

Hi dani3d... long time no see!
The forum is much quieter than when you were last here. If you don't get a reply, I think there may be a french language Micra Facebook group out there?

We put the Curt hitch on our 2017 to use our 2 bike rack, our bikes are quite light but after two uses the hitch is pointing down dramatically. It has obviously bent the panel it’s mounted to and we are very disappointed. I have bought several Curt hitches and that’s why we decided to save the money vs. the SRG, but I can see now that has a better design.
Have a bit of a similar problem with my curt hitch. It did bend down a bit with a 2 bike rack but not enough so that it is unusable. I do need to be careful going over speed bumps so the bike tires don't rub on them. Curt sells this additional support strap that attaches to the bike rack and the top of the tail gate which should help stabilize and take a bit of weight off the hitch. I just got the strap but haven't tested it out yet. https://www.curtmfg.com/part/18050
As far as the SRG hitch goes, it looks like it suffers from a similar issue. https://micra-forum.com/showthread.p...ll=1#post22477
I contemplated both hitches but went with the curt due to the deal I got on it. Still don't have any regrets getting it.
