Class 5 hitch : any body here used them? The truck I am looking at have 2.5 inch receiver hitch on them

The insert design that is a dropped hitch. Dual ball style. 2.5 inch square receiver on the truck.

I see 10k tow weight ratings to 20k ratings on them. Material thickness is heavier with higher weight rating. Some of these inserts are listed at nearly 50 pounds of weight

I have never used one. They all seem to function basically the same. Pull pins to move the ball height location up or down. Pull another pin to rotate from 2 inch ball to 2 5/16 ball.

I see prices from 200 dollars to 500 dollars. Seem to be all steel or aluminum and steel materials used on these

I don’t know if there’s a lot of difference in one brand or another as they all should be certified for the class 5 rating.
Ive always stuck with Etrailer.com because it’s close to me and service is great. You might wanna check em out and if you call them they are awesome and answering all my dumb and mostly dumb questions.

X2 on Etrailer.com They have good prices, good selection, and good descriptions. Great service, and fast shipping. No, I have no stock in them. Just a breeze to work with!

We have them on two trucks, one pulls a 10k trailer, the other is about 12.5 loaded. They provide a good safety margin I think if that's your interest. I still use the 2" stuff on mine but my trailer is usually around 8.5 loaded.
