No issues at all. Has been a great drop bar for my weight distribution hitch!



by:

Love the product, wish however that there was another cross hole for the receiver; it protrudes too much and worries me about leverage even with a weight distributing hitch.

Very C.

7/27/2017

Love the product after this past year. Ive seen others state they wish there was another cross hole. That was a concern of mine, however theres not enough room due to a spare on my vehicle, and theres been no problems with the unit and its extension from the vehicle.



by:

The quality of the part is good and it works as intended. E-trailer's shipping was very quick. We received the part in 3 days with standard shipping. I was very impressed with the quality of the packaging. This heavy item was secured tightly inside the cardboard box so it couldn't move around and potentially damage the box from the inside while in transit. I wish more online retailers would pay as much attention to packaging product.

Product is performing well



by:

This worked well with my sway bar installation, although it is limited to fifteen hundred pounds tongue weight and I would have preferred 1700 pounds to match the tongue weight capacity of our truck.



by:

Exactly what I needed for my trailer. Fast shipping. Another great experience with trailer!

Works great with the Reese trunnion bar hitch. Gave me the height needed to level the trailer.

worked well with my 8000lb Toy Hauler. Was able to adjust hitch height to the right level
