Default Rapid Hitch

This hitch is rated for 1500 pounds tongue weight and 10,ooo pounds trailer GVWR. Does Rapid Hitch under rate their capacities, or should I play it safe and go to a steel hitch?

Would the factory Dodge hitch receiver work OK, then I just find the stronger drawbar and ball? I really like the Rapid Hitch but I think I'm exceeding the weight limits by a few thousand pounds. Time to make a change before something bad happens.

16000 pounds towing capacity. I'll just upgrade the hitch and ball. Really liked that Rapid Hitch

The hitch, receiver, and ball is one area I'd not skimp on. You can buy and install a Titan V (or other true Class 5) for around $400.
