I am not sure I can improve on Barneys post.
I will plead a small mea culpa on the washers... Yes it is true that not all hitches tilt the head with washers. In fact I have owned some of them many years ago. I have been using the EQUALIZER for so long now, that it slipped my mind about other methods of acomplishing this basic hitch setup adjustment.

So if it makes you feel better, you can claim a small technical victory on that point.

He may be able to fix this by using a higher hitch ball. I personally am leary of the straps lasting very long, especially if used with heavy trailers that have over 1,000 lbs. of hitch weight.

You do realize that you have revived a 4 year old post don't you?
