It is doubtful that you can purchase a 2" receiver for a SKY. Reasons:
1) Saturn is against the SKY pulling a trailer per their documentation.
2) I bought a Curt 1" receiver hitch, and I don't recall seeing a 2" offered.
3) With the recommend against a trailer, I would not think that that large of load should be pulled behind a SKY.
4) The 1" receiver is hardly noticeable unless you look closely.

I pull a small trailer equipped with a clam shell, .... like motorcycles use or often mounted on top of a SUV or station wagon. The trailer is about 250 pounds at the most, probably less, and it is perfect for loading up all the wife's 'stuff' that she likes to have along. We can even take along a cooler of wine and beer and two sets of golf clubs!

Doesn't fit the redline due to exhausts in the way?

Only base model. Sorry. Exhaust on a red line is in the way as you stated.

It has been a year since I shopped Curt's website, but I was under the impression that they offer both base model hitch and Redline model hitch. The first one I saw was on a Redline (I think) up in Denver that pulled a jet ski to the lakes.

As I recall, Curt stated that the muffler on the Redline model needed to be unhooked during installation of the hitch and then the muffler reattached. I have the base model SKY, thus I didn't get into that issue, and the installation was simple as expected.

I installed a hitch on my Redline. This hitch won't work on a Redline. To install, the exhaust has to be lowered until the hitch is installed and then raised back up. I've bought a motorcycle trailer to pull on trips.

OK, I will do a little confession about my near term plan .............

Yes, Gladmaker is correct, a base model hitch won't work on a Redline, ...... unless you cut the left side hitch to match the right side, giving the exhaust the needed clearance.

Of course, Curt doesn't want you to do that, but as I see it that is all that is needed. With the Redline exhaust ready to be installed on my base model, and the base model hitch already cut to give the clearance, I believe it should fit with no problem. I'll cut the left side rear valance to match the right side exhaust rectangle of the valance, then all should fit right together.

Curt does offer a hitch both for Redline and the base. Due to the exhaust on a Redline they had to design two different hitches.

Again Curt sells 1-1/4" to 2" adapters that will fit your bike rack.
If interested in the trailer hitch make me an offer.
