Curt trailer hitch on S model?

Hi everyone.
I am just wondering if any of you have tried installing the CURT Class 1 Trailer Hitch #11126 on their S model. they say it won't work because of the centre exhaust but i don't see an issue with it. It looks to me like there would be lots of room before you start to hit the exhaust so I'm thinking this is just for liability concerns about people getting burned by the exhaust while accessing the pin.

If no-one knows but for some reason has easy access to one of the "mini do more" brand; they could take measurements for me if they were a kind soul and i could just fab my own (its just for a bike rack)

I would just buy one of the "mini do more" but getting it in canada would cost roughly double the price of the curt. There is a youtube video of a Curt being put on an S but i wouldn't mind more solid evidence.
