After towing the 31′ SHIP home from Trussville, AL, I decided that I should really look into getting a towing hitch.
I started my research to find that there are MANY options. The more I read, the more confused I became on what would be the best option. I ended up reaching out to a long-time high school friend who I knew traveled frequently with an RV. After his suggestions, I narrowed down my choices and purchased the Equal-i-zer 90001000 Equalizer Hitch. With Amazon Prime, I could get shipping for free. My total cost was $503.40.
Once the hitch arrived (and it is so heavy), it took a small army to figure out how to install it. I had watched several YouTube videos and they make it look so simple. I was in charge of reading the instructions, while my dad and husband installed the hitch.
Why is this so hard? How in the world will I do this on a regular basis to travel? Why do we have so many tools pulled out of the shop to get this installed? Why didn’t I just pay extra to have this installed?
Live and learn!
After installing and removing it several times, we found out that minor adjustments makes a huge impact. WHEW! I hope everything I do in this project is NOT this hard!
