I am so surprised that the Reese Goosebox hitch I bought was made in Mexico and not USA. Had I seen this article sooner, I might have opted for a different style ??

The Reese Goosebox is a really good option though and for some applications it's better than an adapter that attaches to the pin box. For a while some of the 5th wheel manufacturers would say that an adapter would void the warranty so this was a way around it.

No mention of Blue Ox or Fastway’s E2 or Equalizer E4. Every dealer I’ve been at sells these... some of them only sell these.

Those are weight distribution systems and we were only talking about trailer hitch receivers and 5th wheel hitches in this article. You are correct that both of those brands are made in the USA though.
