Torklift Superhitch Original vs Magnum 30K for 2002 Chevy 3500 Dually Duramax


I see that both the Superhitch Original TLC1205 and the Superhitch Magnum 30K are available for our 2002 Silverado 3500 4x4 truck. The truck has a GTW of only 12000lbs. We tow a 29foot race trailer primarily and sometimes it is over our GTW but not by alot. We also plan to tow a boat, which is lighter, behind our truck with a cabover camper. It seems to me that the Superhitch Original would be adequate and the Magnum 30K may be overkill. Would you please give us your thoughts and recommendations?


Expert Reply:

I would agree with your assessment that the Superhitch Magnum 30k part # TLC1205-30 is overkill from a weight capacity point of view and the Original part # TLC1205 is more closely rated to what your vehicle is equipped for.

Beyond that the Magnum has ability to be used as a 2-1/2 inch and 2 inch hitch whereas the Original is only a 2 inch hitch. That might be the only other thing worth considering.
