Hitch switch?

What kind of hitches does everyone use? Currently have a Reese pro series, thinking about upgrading to equalizer. Is it worth it?

Definitely. The Pro Series is Reese's cheapest WD hitch. You don't want to tow with a cheap hitch. Equal-I-Zer is a good hitch, and Equal-I-Zer doesn't sell any cheap hitches, so any Equal=I-Zer will be better than the Pro Series.

Reese makes good hitches too, but the Pro Series is not one of them. Reese-Strait-Line is much, much better, equivalent to the Equal-I-Zer and about the same price. I have a Reese Strait-Line on my enclosed cargo trailer.

Another good hitch is the Blue Ox. The Blue Ox usually costs a bit more than a Strait-Line or an Equal-I-zer, and performs about the same.
