That will probably be the downfall for Reese, Draw-Tite and other Cequent products. I for 1 will not buy another Cequent product if those jobs go to Mexico, and there are probably a lot more like me out there that feel the same way.

I steer clear of buying Mexican made products, although sometimes it does happen because there are no other choices. Many of the vehicles mentioned on this forum are made in Mexico, or if not the vehicle itself as the final assembly point, the engine is. The so called "foreign" car manufacturers are bringing their plants to the U.S. and Canada, while the big 3 have shipped some of their production to Mexico. And they will wonder why they will loose my business when I buy a car from a "foreign" corporation, with a vehicle made in Alabama, Ohio, or Ontario.

The U.S. and Canada are loosing too many jobs that go south of the Rio Grande.

I will now step off of my soap box.

I emailed the company when I first got the news. If others feel the same they could do the same. Let them know how you feel about the move. I have used Reese hitches for a number of years.
It is my understanding that all of the 3/4 and 1 ton Dodge pickups are made in Mexico?

If we get much further into this debate, it will get VERY political.

With that said, I would still rather pay an American company than a company owned and operated in some other country. Keeping the profits here in the US is better than the alternative.

So the re-phrased answer is "Assembled in Kentucky"
