Great price and fair price on the install assuming that includes the hitch. Those equalizers can be a bit complicated to install but super easy to use.

That sounds like a great price. We paid 2 grand more for the same unit.

Wow I have never seen a form like FR forms where people are so negative. Oh you can save 400.00 by buying it yourself when you don't even know what kind of hitch he is getting and just maybe he does not have the tools or place to install it or that included a hitch on his tv so to him its worth the price. My ex father in law cold do no more then change a light blub in his house and he did not even own a step ladder. with you new camper

The OP is asking if it's a good deal....and I don't think it's negative if we think he's paying a little too much for the hitch.

The roo forums tend to be just about the most positive community I have ever participated in...and I am involved in quite a few. Hopefully the poster didn't take anything as negative. Most replies were positive and others were just giving their two cents. I agree that everything depends on comfort level.

Hey, was just advising the OP that they could get the same WDH for a lot cheaper.
Was in no way being negative.
It was simply a suggestion. Not sure how you interpreted so differently

My post stated "almost half" of $800. I never mentioned a trailer ball, just the WDH.
RVW has the 1000/10000lbs 4 pt Equalizer for $450 with free shipping.

To me, that's almost half of $800.

You are correct, it was another poster that mentioned 400. Can't get too far without a ball though. FYI for anyone buying this hitch from RVW is to get the ball from Progress, the maker of the Equal-i-zer or chances are you are going to have problems. The shaft is a little shorter than a typical ball and they run about 25 bucks. And then they will tell you that you need the thin walled socket ($83) to install the ball. What I did was remove the bolts from the sockets and slid them over a bit out of the way. I got a 3/4 inch socket for $8 from Tractor Supply that worked fine doing that.
