New 06 truck here next week. Trading 00 short bed f250, for 06 longbed. Getting rid of the Husky 16k slider. Was wondering about the 15/16k Lil Rocker, or the 15/16k Robyn??? My trailer is 10,000 gvwr 25ft Komfort.
Has anyone heard good or bad things about these hitches?? I realize they are not as expensive as a Reese, but I'm not a full timer, and these are easier to remove for other truck use. I read that both hitches have 4 way swivel, and lock out.
Any comments, experience appreciated.
Thanks Billy M

Billy, I just had a RBw X/16 installed at a considerable savings over the Reese. They are very popular in this area with both RVers And AG folks. The pin on my newly aquired Weekend Warrior is also a RBW

I have a 16K RBW which is not a little rocker. I like it and would want another if I change trucks.

Thanks Hoverbug, and cwsoules!

I went to Camping World and asked about Robyn they sell, (it looks kind of like the RBW) anyway, all they could do was tell me how bad it was and I needed the Reese. Maybe Camping World shouldn't sell it if it's that bad??
I think I'll go with the RBW, I don't think I need a $700 hitch for a 10,000 lb trailer.
Thanks again!
Later!

I have the "Little Rocker" and like it. Its nice that it comes apart into 2 pieces to remove so its lighter and I can store it in a storage compartment also.
