As some of you know, I towed my dearly departed Boler
with a Rav4 (also departed, but not missed so much). Now I am looking to move into a 17’ trailer, towing with my Nissan truck and I want to get a hitch ready in the next couple of days but need some advice please.
My main issue is the mounting of the wiring plug. On the Nissan factory hitch the hitch end of the plug is built right into the hitch bar. If I go to one of the local hitch shops they will have to fabricate a bracket or mounting plate of some sort to put the plug receiver end onto. I know on the Rav4 the hitch shop made a mounting bracket that bolted onto the hitch, but it always seemed like an add-on, wiggly and not too sturdy.
Are there other pros or cons to either situation that I should be considering? (Besides the obvious, dealer being more pricey)
Thanks for any input
