Later I will give a report on how this hitch does, as I have one on order to use with the 17' Casita that I use going to RC funflys.
Thanks for posting that. I'll be interested to hear how you like it. If we ever switch to a smaller tow vehicle, I'll be looking for lightweight WD.

In reading all these posts, unless I missed it I haven't seen a single person speak about the Draw-Tite WD hitch. When I bought my 2001 S-10 Blazer, the dealership threw in a Class IV hitch and the Draw-Tite stinger and bars, which are rated at 750lbs. I've since sold the Blazer, but I kept the Draw-Tite. Last year, when I sold our 3500 Ram, I left the Reese setup with it. I pulled out the Draw-Tite and put it on our F350 King Ranch, and I think it does a great job with our Sovereign. Then again, I can tow without the WD bars and there's not much of a difference...that King Ranch is a tank, and with a 1400lb hauler bed, it's not going anywhere.
