. We had a dozen 1/2 ton trucks climbing
mountains, racing on a track, towing
trailers, testing at Davis Dam towing Logan
Coach trailers from Imperial Trailers in
Mesa AZ. We used Weigh-Safe aluminum
adjustable receiver hitch that weighed our
trailer tongue weight. Also Intelli-Hitch
adjustable receiver hitch that doubled as an
electronic surge trailer brake controller
built into the hitch. www.LoadTrail.com from
