Yeah, Butch probably couldn't make any money paying the shipping. I still think it is a great bargain!

I'm still waiting for word on one for the Curt Q20. Got an email from Butch a few weeks ago saying they were going to have one, and watch his website. Still say's it doesn't work on the Q20, but I'm still going to wait.

It's worth the wait!

Works now for Pull Rite

Add me to the many happy users of Butch's product. He had not designed one for a Pull Rite but I ordered and he sent a kit. Quickly, I realized it wouldn't work as intended for the Reese. Before I could call him, he called me and we discussed the issue. I sent a bunch of photos and Butch set out to go check out a Pull Rite himself. Before I knew it, he sent me another kit specifically for my Pull Rite (no extra charge). He had me call him as I was setting up the install and his directions were spot on. As others have stated, with the center punch he sends it's almost a no brainer to install.

I can't say enough about Butch's customer skills. He genuinely wants his customers to be happy and thoroughly satisfied. So refreshing to come across someone with his attitude!

Anyone have contact info you can share? Are they available to Canadians? Seems like good insurance for the forgetful moment we all dread!

I had to go through Amazom.com. Butch called me because I had a difficult address (we are on the road). Really easy to install and helps with peace-of-mind.

FYI, those punches are called Transfer Punches. I have a 28 piece set from 3/32" - 1/2". They fit a bolt hole perfectly so you get a perfectly centered punch.

Re Latching

I've been looking at the bedsaver and the 5th wheel latch Kit bed saver. I realized that both of them do the same thing but I'm concerned about the reaction of the unit if it slides out of the hitch into the bed saver and you stop and the trailer goes forward how does it react does anybody have any experience with this if so please let me know.

It seems to me that the pin can only move forward back into the hitch. It may or may not engage, but I don't think it would matter. The weight would not let it get out and drop on the bed. I just can't see any reason the pay the big bucks for the Bedsaver. JMHO. Good luck & God bless!
