See a lot of discussions about fancy distribution hitches. Now if you are towing a large trailer, heck yes. OK I tow loads many times the size of my tow vehicle at the upper edge of its capacity of times. BUT that is done for a short distance and not at speed. And generally because the equipment rental company dropped stuff at the wrong place. They can drop something same day or next day, but if they drop it at the same place then think you need to wait 3-4 days for them to fix it or rent and pay for two of them. :-( But I would never ever think of towing a load like that any distance or at speed without all the fancy hitch things mentioned here.
is a little ove half the weight
of my tow vehicle. I can sure as heck tell when I use the wrong receiver insert. Had to do that to get home one time when someone stole one. :-( But if you have the trailer level and hitched at the proper level it tows like a dream. Even when the road becomes a nightmare it tows like a dream. I have had to drive the high speed slalom course thing while safely stopping when someone dropped a load of barrels right ahead of me. The trailer ended up with a blown tire from the debris. But otherwise it handled perfectly.
Do the hitch level thing right and if you have a good heavy duty tow vehicle you should get the same result. As I said I had to use a wrong unit, what I could buy at walmart ready made once and ever stop and every turn you knew you had that danged trailer back there.
