The question is why not fab your own and save a bunch of $$$$. I know you can do it and likely better judging from some of the weld quality I think I saw in the vids.

i could do it for sure. the reason i am looking at that companies is for liability reasons.  i do not for see an issue but one just never knows and hard saying which way that would swing.  if i were to do it i think i would permently weld it on and cut the a frame for the extra strength. i like the removable idea for resale. there are several bumper hitch floor plans that dont exist in a fiver that i pre fer also.
From a liability standpoint there would be no difference between building the conversion and cutting/modifying the trailer. Being as you wil possibly want to sell it I'd do the conversion and retain resale value.

They are like a cheap band-aid. They fail to perform when you need them to the most.  I did my time with them and they were,IMO,better than nothing but fall far,far short of a GN/FW.

i like the designjconcept but have always wondered how responsive they were in side winds. no matter the balance of a trailer, side winds can cause sway.  of course this is where the GN/FW shine and why i found this GN conversion.  i remember seeing something simalar 12 years ago but cannot remember the name. price is def a very proud price lol but same price as the hensley and pro pride hitch's. the GN version of my trailer was $3k more and an additional 2k lbs. if i went that rt i would save the weight lol it would also be removable and useable on other trailers.
And it would make your trailer more able to sell readily. You know ,in 2 years................ ;D ;D

somehow i knew that was coming  :m  this is why this one HAS to make 3 years  rofl
