That is at least what equalizer told me when I was I quirking about 10,000 bars for a 6,000 hitch head.

Its also my understanding that the spring arms are designed for a particularly sized hitch head and cannot be used with a head of a different rating.

The hitch heads and the bars are not interchangeable. As others have suggested this setup will be far too stiff for your application.

Thanks for all the replies, I received an email back this morning for them this mor
ning.

Hi Bobby

Thank you for contacting Progress Mfg

Our hitches do work well on lower weights, it would not harm you in any way to keep the 12K Equal-i-zer hitch on your little trailer, it is over kill but it is not going to affect your safety.

Have a great day!

Incorrect... It WILL affect your safety! The 1200 pound bars are not going to allow for much to any spring when you hit dips in the roads. At highway speeds this will result in porpoising or bouncing along the highway. This can become a HUGE safety factory as it can get violent enough to separate your vehicles tires from the pavement briefly... Sounds untrue but happens more than one would think...

You can use it, it will serve the purpose, but it will not work as it is supposed to. The choice is up to you but if you ask me the extra $300-400 for a new hitch appropriately sized would be well spent...
