New hitch install

I took my car into Fly By Night Hitch Guys to have a hitch put on.
How big of a camper can I pull?

And you should be able to do 85mph over any kind of road!


BTW, please send me your future travel plans... I'll be sure to use different roads.

One more strap and a few extra screws will pull anything. Just keep tongue weight under 1000.
