I've made a deal to purchase a 2005 Scamp
19. I need to drive about 7 hours one way to pick up the trailer, and I don't have rails and brackets installed in my truck yet. The truck is a 2006 GMC Sierra K1500 crew cab with the 5 1/2' bed.
I am trying to decide which rail and frame bracket kit to purchase. I spoke with an etrailer rep and she gave me two different Reese kits. One is custom fit for my truck, ( RP50064-58 ) but I wonder if it would be too limited not knowing if the Scamp
hitch would conform to the 'industry standard' hitches these brackets are templated for. The other is more 'universal' ( RP30035 )and just uses four angle brackets. Somehow those angle brackets don't inspire much confidence in me.
Has anyone got experience with the these trucks and scamp
19's? Also, my bed sides are 51" tall. I know the axle
has been upgraded to a Dexter 5400 lb. unit but I don't know if larger tires
or any lift has been added.
The plan is that the seller and I will install the hitch rails and brackets when I get there because all the shops are booked out for a couple weeks.
Any help would be most appreciated.
