I love my 18K Patriot which works very well with our signature 5ver. Very easy to adjust the height if needed.

^^^ I realize my story is not an apples to apples example. The point I was hoping to get across from it was that if a well built hitch is used at double its rated capacity and something goes wrong the hitch is not likely going to fail. I would be afraid to get on an elevator if I thought I couldn't trust the rated capacity of hitch.


Just twisting your bones! Everything has a "FACTOR" built in and B&W's is VERY high.

My MORryde IS axles are rated 8k, they actually inspected mine that are at nearly 9k and they said they looked good and were within their spec!
