I had this Hitch and took it back.
One, The brackets are not the best in my opinion. If you tighten them too, tight they bend. The brackets can walk on the frame unless you put a weld bead on them, but you can't weld on a new trailer frame unless you want to voide the warranty.
Next, it squeels and squeeks very bad.
Third, there is no way to get the tension bars off, the handle only installs them. So unless you can crank your rig up high enough, good luck taking them off.
For the extra $50.00 I upgraded to the Reese SC with the 1200lbs bars. It has larger brackets and uses replaceable brake pads at the friction point. This hitch is one step down from the Reese Dual cam and is a very very good set up. I can take the bars on and off by hand or use the bar.
I did like the ease of the E2,except trying to get the bars off. But man I didn't like the old barn door sound it makes when making slow turns in a parking lot. Trust me, people are not admiring your trailer when you use the E2, they are looking to see what that groaning noise is.
