Correct-- and for the record the OB is a class II vehicle so it doesn't matter what class hitch you have bolted to it your still only Class II. They only started building 2inch receivers in late 09 for cars when bike racks for more than 2 bikes needed the extra strength a 2inch piece of framing could provide. The actual frame that 2inch receiver is welded to is identical to the 1 1/4 receiver the difference being the receiver size nothing else.I see. So much further forward than the Aussie hitch goes. Still, unibody failure shouldn't be an issue if I keep my tongue weight down by using a dolly instead of a full trailer. I think the aftermarket class 3 hitches should be fine for dolly towing.
