Hitch to pull a boat behind the trailer

Called the dealer for a price on hitch for my Cruise light 19bh. They quoted me 829.00 for the hitch and wiring and install. The Max towed behind the trailer is 2000 pound. I'm looking about 800 pounds jon boat.
Does the price sounds high but they adding support to the frame. It doesn't void the warranty of the trailer. Any thoughts

At the time I purchased my trailer the salesman quoted me $700 to install a boat hitch - I thought that was too expensive. One day while getting some warranty work done, I was talking to the service manager (same dealer) and he stated he would install the boat hitch for $400 including the wiring harness. He said he had time, so I jumped on it. By waiting a month I saved $300. I do not know if this happens at all dealers; however, the service dept at my dealer seems to price things differently than the main store. You might try talking to the service manager and see what he charges to install the same hitch.

The 2-inch receiver hitch was both welded and bolted to the frame of the trailer.

I thought it was high on price. It's funny how price changes
