That was a long story to set up a question.
You are asking if you should worry about towing across town once?
Don't even bother with a WD hitch for a short tow....

How much does the truck sag when you drop the trailer on the hitch? If it rides level enough and the trailer tows well enough then it will get you there.

The other issue... Installing a WD can be done by most people who are not handy with tools. Read directions, watch a video and go try. Not a lot lot it. Find a different mechanic. Any mechanic can do this, auto, lawnmower, bicycle... it is not hard stuff and any mechanic will be able to read directions and follow the steps to install...

What Mr. andyj just said. If can install an equalizer hitch, you can do yours. Not a big thing.
