yeah but, think about this...

shari,

if you upgrade both trailers to 2 and 5/16 you can always get someone to come get you if your tow vehicle breaks down. remember the blue list?

if you are traveling in a group you can drop a trailer off then go get the disabled one off the freeway. makes it much easier on the tow truck guy.

also, all of my trailers and tow vehicles have the same ball and 7 pin plugs! oddly enough, so do my friends trailers and trucks.

leaves lots of options when you are on the road!

john

Yeahbut, when you travel with vintage folks and have a 2" ball, you already match them, you won't with a 2 5/16".

Trying to stick up for you, madam president.

John - I've got you covered if you need help in AL.

Tom, I have seen and handled those, they seem pretty well made, though I've never used one. Does anybody here use one of those setups on thheir stuff?
