I bought this hitch to use with our 2006 1/2 ton Silverado and 24' Prowler. At first I considered having the store install it for $95, but I wanted to gain the working knowledge of the entire hitch so I took it home and did it myself. The box contained every single item that was needed, some very simple install instructions and with a few basic hand tools and the better part of a day, the job went very well. Prior to getting started, I also did a fair amount of reading and asking online questions of others that were sharing their experiences. A suggestion would be "take your time" when deciding how many spacers to use when adjusting the angle of the head. Unless you own a really heavy duty torque wrench and are a very strong person, you might want to consider taking just the finished head assembly to a local shop and pay them a few bucks to tighten all the bolts to the required torque. If this hitch will work with the weight of your trailer, I can't see where or how you could find a better hitch, a new one that is, for this price! Now we can safely tow our TT with confidence.

Great powder coating, stability and towing ease. The best feature is the ease of attaching and locking chains on the bars. Instructions could be more in depth.

It does the WD task fine however requires a separate sway control. The ball mount is setup for 2 friction sway bars which may be needed especially with a longer trailer.
