It sounds like you're looking for a Reese 77269 hitch

Reese, Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch are all brands owned by Cequent Performance Products. The Reese 77269, The Draw-Tite # 24882 and the Hidden Hitch # 60299 (no longer available) Class I Hitches are all manufactured in the same factory, and all three are identical. The only difference between the three is the brand name and part number on the sticker affixed to the hitch. In other words, there's no difference in quality or weight rating between the three hitches.

We don't carry Reese branded frame mount trailer hitches, but I'd recommend the the Draw-Tite model.

If you'll be using the hitch for light duty towing, you'll also need the following to complete your towing system:

A ball mount
Trailer wiring harness with 4-pole connector, part # 118564
Ball mount, part # 3593 (includes pin and clip)
1-7/8 inch trailer ball # 19256 or # 19258 for a 2 inch ball

Be sure the weight of the trailer you're planning on towing doesn't exceed the towing capacity of your vehicle, which should be 1000 lbs. I'd recommend you confirm the towing capacity for yourself by consulting the owner's manual.
