Have been searching this topic without much luck and would love to hear from any Vintage owners. We've recently restored our '69, 31' Sovereign
and are considering moving our Hensley Hitch (purchased in 2007- installed on our 2007 27' Safari) to the '69.
We have two options.
Send the hitch to Hensley and have it modified to fit the 2 5/16? ball or update / change the coupler on our '69 to a standard 2" and simply move the hitch from one trailer to the next. Of course, option three is to skip the Hensley completely and use the existing "weight distribution" bars that are on the '69 now. Not sure of the brand or style.
I've been told that changing the coupler is a bad idea due to the fact that it creates weakness (new weld point) in an area that receives the most stress. Thanks in advance!
