First, let’s start with the fact that this hitch comes with 2 different size balls. Why is this important? If you have a ball that is too small in diameter,  the trailer could slip right off. This might not be too much of a problem if you are hauling on super smooth roads, but with all of the bumps you are bound to hit in Michigan, don’t be surprised to look in the rearview mirror to a trailer that is no longer there. Too big of a ball and obviously you won’t even be able to attach your trailer to take it anywhere. Also, this allows for you to haul a variety of trailers because typically, the larger the trailer the larger ball you will need.

Second, the Weigh Safe trailer hitch has an adjustable height. This makes it so that you are able to evenly distribute the weight on your load. If the trailer is short compared to the vehicle that is hauling it, the load will fall towards the back of the trailer. If the trailer is tall compared to the vehicle that is hauling it, the load will move towards the front of the trailer. In both situations, it makes the load unsafe to haul. Having a hitch with an adjustable height makes it easier to haul trailers with a variety of heights.

Finally, Weigh Safe hitches have a scale, right on the side of the hitch, that helps you measure the tongue weight of your trailer. Hence the name, “weigh safe.” Why is tongue weight important? Well, if you have too much tongue weight then you put extra force on the back of the vehicle and this would push the vehicle around. If you have too little tongue weight, the trailer could more easily sway from side to side, making it much harder to control when going down the road.

This hitch has the added bonus of being made in the USA. It is also made from billet aluminum for added strength and the balls for the hitch are made of stainless steel for corrosion resistance. You could get it with a shaft size of 2″, 2.5″, or 3″. Really the list of features this hitch has goes on and on and on….
