Who made this hitch?

I have uploaded two pictures of the hitch that comes with the Overlander. It is welded and too low for me to use. I talked to Reese today since it looks like there "Heavy duty round bar equialzer". I was told that they did not make one till 1980. I don't believe that it is that new. If I can find out who made this hitch, maybe I can find a new ajustable head for it.

It's an Eaz-Lift.

I think that there is a rather strong likelihood that the hitch on the coach is one produced by the Eas-Lift Spring Corporation (they have been producing similar hitches for several decades). The following are two links to their coporate website:

Eaz-Lift Spring Corporate Weigth Distributing Hitches - - General Information

Eaz-Lift Spring Corporation Weight Distributing Hitch Brochure pdf

Good luck with your investigation!

Rog, Kevin,

Cigars to the two of you. You are right on the maker!!!
Now for the bad news. The style I have is not compatable with the new style.
So it is back to the poll. Thank you guys.

BTW I love the Eaz-lift logo on the last page of the brochure

Tedd, if it helps, I have the same EAZ-Lift you have, and had the same unit on my last travel trailer. I have also used the twin-cam WD anti-swat setup, and I would buy the twin cam if I was replacing mine. It is much better.
