Amen.

Harbor Freight also has some power tools that look like DeWalt's . . . but they're not.

JP Beck -

It is a lesson that many of us have learned the hard way. These guys do a great job of displaying and pricing their goods. In our market, they are a popular choice for buying those tools that have a habit of "walking off the job site". For the rest of us who plan on using something more than once, it is just not a good option.

That said, HF is a great choice when buying tools for kids or those who need a trial outing.

BTW, you are just a few miles away from us. We should share info on area RV sites.

New Equalizer have only towed with it once. From what I have seen thus far wish I would have stayed with the Reese Dual Cam. Don't even get me started on Harbor Freight.

There's no way in the world I'd trust a Harbor Freight hitch to tow my trailer.

EAZ Lift, 1000# bars, been using this setup since March 2005 - does the job, no complaints.

We put a Reese dual cam on out old hybrid and loved it for the last 10 years. It got sold wit the trailer last week. The new Octane came with a Husky set up and friction sway from the PO and I couldn't get the hitch head to the right height on my truck so I was looking for a different shank when I came across a lightly used dual cam set up with the right drawbar and bars for the new trailer so now it's switch over time. I'm very happy with how the dual cam works and tows, it seems much quieter than my brother in laws equalizer as well..

I remember reading a procedure for weighing a TV & TT on a CAT scale on this forum but now I can't find it. Does anyone know where that is?
