This is a good point. That's why I'm doing as much research as possible. Just looking at them they are on the same frame as the Jflights.

There are lots of good hitches out there. I decided to go with the Blue Ox Sway Pro after reading up on this forum, also a shop not far from me is a dealer for them. They are well built and easy to use.

That Hummingbird is about the same weight as my old pup. I would start with a regular weight bearing hitch, and move up to a very basic WDH if needed. You aren't going to have to transfer very much weight, so a regular inexpensive round bar or trunnion bar would be sufficient. Just make sure to get small enough bars - our Husky lightest bars are rated 400-600 lbs Tongue Weight. I think most of the really high end hitches being recommended here are probably more (and more $$) than you would need for such a small TT.

Thank you. Yeah I think the tongue weight is about 315#
