The toughest trailer hitch you can buy for your 2012 Sierra 2500 is the TorkLift Class V Hitch which we sell in two different configurations - the # TLC1209-30 for 6.5 ft beds and the # TLC1208-30 for 8 ft beds.

This hitch has a capacity of 2500 lbs TW / 20000 lbs GTW that can expand to 3000 lbs TW / 30000 lbs GTW with a compatible weight distribution system. The hitch has both a 2" and a 2 1/2" receiver, so along with the added receiver tube sizing option, it's able to tow both a trailer and a bike rack simultaneously as well.

You might also want to consider purchasing a larger capacity weight distribution system to alleviate the burden of your current rig. This TorkLift Hitch was designed to work with the TorkLift WD # TLWD1000 which includes chain collars that can be easily adjusted up or down the spring bar to reach optimum leverage and a hydraulic assist to achieve appropriate tension for your specific rig's setup.
