Default To a trailer hitch specialist Curt versus Drawtite, Hidden Hitch for Honda Civic?

I have a 2006 Honda Civic 2 door and am going to install a Class I 1.25" trailer hitch, only to use it for installing a 2-bike carrier. The Curt # 11437 is the ONLY hitch for my car that is installed with 2 bolts on each side of the frame. The other brands only have one opening for 1 bolt on each side of the frame. Another advantage of the Curt is that it has a slight "V shape" making it sit under the car further and not be so noticeable. The Drawtite and Hidden Hitch brands look like they have a "straighter" line underneath the car making them look more noticeable. My question is, does having 2 bolts to attach to the frame on each side make it stronger? I would think it does. Thank you for your help.I looked closer at the Drawtite 24763. It also has the "V shape" making for being less noticeable under the car. But it only has one hole for one bolt for installing on each side of the frame.

What I would do (since I work there) is call your local U-Haul and ask them to look up the hitch for your car and see what it looks like and how much it is (it's probably cheaper than the ones you found).If both hitches are rated for the same weight then it doesn't matter, also it's only a bike rack, not a 36' trailer, so go with the least expensive.
