Unhappy Would this not ruin a weekend !!!

I saw this in a magazine I get, Trailer Boats. It may have been posted here already but I did not see the thread. Thought y'all might find this interesting.

I said it when I first saw the pic and I'll say it again, "He's one lucky SOB!".

MAN, he took the words right out of my mouth, "Having the proper hitch".

My first thought when I saw this picture was that this guy really had a great hitch, ball and coupler.

This is a big concern I have now towing a 12, 000 + rig and the only ball mount and ball you can find anymore show a rating of only 10,000 lbs. All the dealers tell me they need three times that load to break, they say they have never seen one break, etc., etc.

But I would rather have piece of mind in knowing that a higher number was actually stamped on it.

Thanks for sharing this article.

I bought a 12000# ball from Reese. Your local trailer or rv shop should be able to order one for you.

I've got one of those 12,000 lb hitch balls from Reese. Goes well with the Titan hitch.
