Agreed. It's a lot longer way from Texas than from the East Coast. But on my list nonetheless.
Custom fabrication work pays for itself with hitch receivers, and then for dialing in the combination. It's the only way we could do it way back when. But far better than the off the shelf pieces and compromised (by design) receivers of today.
As yours is a married couple, consider this. You'll not be changing them anytime soon.
I had my choice of tractors in current job. I chose the one where fingertips and toes can do the job of keeping it upright and lane centered. Won't pull the hills as hard (the usual truck driver choice), but it's far less taxing to drive.
I made the same kind of choice for the TV where the trade off was no 4WD. And the Hensley hitch.
Dialing it in is an entirely separate issue. Another level.
The slop introduced by "adaptors" is real. So, IMO, consider addressing the issue once and finally.
