CURT 17132 is an option, though it's so much cheaper I have to question the quality.



??? Strange statement


Since its not really cheaper, I am not sure where this comes from. I looked up the Curt (11 holes), a similar but slightly shorter Blue Ox (9 holes), and an Equalizer (not sure on the holes, the pics do not reflect the actual item) and they are $222, $222, $239 respectively. The Equalizer is welded up, and I suspect may be taller (more holes) but does not list a weight rating. The Blue Ox and the Curt are both cast steel and the Curt is rated at 15K lbs and the Blue Ox is rated at 20K lbs, possibly due to not being as tall.

So no, the price does not vary wildly between brands and the Curt is in the same price range as the others. Some people may not like the cast steel but if properly manufactured, it is as strong as a welded up one.

Everywhere I checked that Curt was ~$135.

Ok, getting back to the original post. Thanks for the info so far.
The unanswered question I guess is: will a Pro-Series head work with a shank from a different mfg?


Always looking for the perfect site.
