Hitch seems ok, but I feel like there are better options out there I just don't know what they are. This is the hitch that the dealer installed when I got the trailer so im assuming they went for easiest hardware with highest profit margin. Are there better options? If so, what are the recommendations?
I used to have the same trailer in the Cruise Lite brand! The problem I had is that it's so light and so long it tended to be very impacted by winds and such.
I used a 4 pt Equil-i-zer hitch, with the 1000 lb tongue weight bars. Worked good once I got it cranked down far enough! Sadly this hitch now just hangs in the garage after getter the 5er.
