I use a very light Weight
Distributing Hitch to tow my Fiber Stream
with my Honda Odyssey
. It is a trunnion type, with 2 spring arms marked 350 Lbs. It came with the trailer, and Honda requires WDH for towing what my trailer weighs.
As I was entering the driveway for the parking lot at work (where I store the trailer) I cross a deep curb cut.
I hear the noise in the title
, and immediately stop the rig and get out to investigate. What I find is that one of the Spring Arms has broken
, and the end was dragging on the ground. Since I am almost at my storage spot, I remove that arm and put the trailer away.
Here is the broken arm:
It may be as old as the trailer. I remember only seeing HUGE spring arms available in RV stores. The Fiber Stream's
frame is very light
(1" x 2" channel) and these arms are sized to match. Where might I find replacements that small???
