custom-made hitches

hi.....back in may of this year, maclean's magazine featured an article about an rv dealership that custom-makes hitches. the shop is in london, ontario.
on the website, they show video footage of a pt-cruiser pulling a 20+ foot airstream...an austin mini also pulling an airstream etc....

has any member of this forum had any dealings with this shop? i don't want to name names, as i don't know if it is allowed, but since this forum deals with both CAN and AMerican campers, hahahaha, one might guess at the name.
dennis and i are seriously considering having him custom make a hitch for us....investigation online can find no one who has a negative comment on these hitches he produces...perhaps we can garner some more feedback here before making the journey from new brunswick to london....approx. 18 hours.
thanks so much in advance!

Andy Taylor is good, it is the style of custom welded class 3 hitch closer to the under belly, welded equalizing system with properly adjusted height and close as possible to bumper, trailer brakes, brake controller, breakaway switch, transmission cooler, proper trailer tires, backup camera etc. when combined that makes it all work.

check out www.equalizerhitch.com they slide no chain and do not twist a unibody, also work with surg brakes though electric proportional braking system is better.
