I have been following this thread closely because I have decided to buy an Equalizer WDH to replace my current set up. I was particularly interested in the quote above because I would wait until any such redesign before buying. I have been in contact with Daniel Hicken with Progress Mfg and he sent me the email below. I don't think I will wait.
I havenít heard of any redesign, aside the most recent change from the box-style to the bolt-style brackets. Generally speaking, any change to the hitch system takes about 6 months to go from us, through our distributors to our dealers. It can take as much as 9 months, depending on the stock that our distributors have of our hitches. As I donít know of any imminent change to the link plates, Iíd hate to have you wait for a year or more to buy the Equal-i-zer.
