I found a "local" guy 2 hours away, one way from me who has the equalizer 4 way for sale for 500$ OBO. I found a brand new one delivered for $460ish. I told him this but because e paid the full retail for it at a brick and mortar outfit he thing it's worth more. I offered him 300$ and I think that's fair for the travel time/fuel expense along with the fact that it's used and has no warranty.
My question is, I know these things are pretty tough but should purchasing new and having a warranty be an issue? He said he will take $350, for that money is it worth the time/expense to travel and get it vs. A brand new one delivered for a mere $100 more?.? Thoughts.?.😱

For the $100 I'd buy new. If you buy his, when you get it home and find something wrong, it's yours. At least with the new, you can get it corrected. JMO

FWIW.....I like to think in terms of %......$100.00 more is roughly 30% more $......again, FWIW.......

If I were in your shoes I'd be getting the Equalizer 4 point like many have recommended. It works and it's made in America. And it's reasonably priced.

I've been thinking about replacing my Husky Round Bar WHD hitch with this Equalizer 4 point, but I want to keep my Class V shank, so I e-mailed PPL for a price without the shank, it's 100.00 more? Don't understand that getting less is more??

Buy it with the shank, sell the shank it comes with on craigslist!
