You can use an extender hitch bar(needs to be attached to truck frame). But, you will need to be very careful when towing additional weight. Pulling a trailer, etc. is not the problem. Stopping with all of that weight will cause brakes to fail. If you pull any additional weight with a cabover, you will definitely need to have aux. braking. Even then 55 mph would be my max speed. Good luck.

Hey Bill, I understand you are getting your new extended hitch assembly fabricated at a fraction of that cost. When you get it done, you should post a few photos so that the other members could look at the alternative you chose.

As for Mutt's comments regarding auxiliary braking, I believe your trailer has brakes does it not?

I installed new Dexter axles with electric brakes on both of my boat trailers, and the braking capability of both were increased dramatically. One is a 18 foot bass rig on a single axle trailer, and the other is a 22 foot sport boat with a tandem axle trailer. The only drawback to electric brakes on a boat trailer is that they will not fare well in salt water. Since we only boat in fresh water it is not a problem for us.

Thanks for your reply, My trailer is a 14' with tandem wheels and trailer brakes. I've recently come across a fabricator that made up an extended hitch Bar that ties into three recievers. Hes going to weld two more recievers to my hitch for it to work. Just don't know if it has to be DOT approved ?? Hes a ticketed Fabricator and says it should be over kill for what im towing.

Yeah the trailer has tandem wheels and trailer brakes, hes going to have it ready for me at the end of next week. I'll take and post photos for everyons opinion then. I'm also taking the unit in to make sure the trailer brakes are working up to snuff, just to be sure.
