Yeah , looks like it . I think it`s a great hitch but not for a lot of weight I guess.

Needed to bring the VR 1 to Buffalo NY area for some work. About 170 miles round trip. The EOH worked wonderfully. I did do a little fine tuning on the controller but I am extremely happy with ths system and only wish I had done if sooner. Disc brakes and EOH is the cats ass.

Thanks for all the advise and encouragement.

I upgraded to a disk brake EOH a few years ago, it is a huge difference. Just had 2 buddies buy new trailers, one did not go with EOH, I have no idea why not. When buying new it can not be much of a cost added considering how much I have in my system.

I just upgraded to EOH I don’t know why I didn’t do this years ago,what a difference this makes towing.I bought the Hydrastar plug and play system I didn’t need the controller adapter module if anybody needs one they can have it let me know.

I'm guessing this is the case primarily in locals like yours with hills etc? I'm in florida and see no issue with my hydraulics. Roll out slow to set the slide after initially stopping and no bump. Drive responsible enough not to jam on the brakes and cause the same during a panic stop. Backs down any ramp in neutral without drama.

I put mine in a small diamond plate box. Keeps it all out of sight.

New EOH question. Security...I don't know if it is a problem but I got to thinking that it would not be difficult for someone to steal the hydraulic pump off the trailer! Anyone else worried about this and if so what would be a good way to make it more difficult to unbolt and steal the pump? Maybe it isn't a problem but the pump is the most expensive part to the EOH system.

Something to think about, but this may work search "anti tamper screws" at lowes.
