"Reese" style trailer hitch.

I made a prototype of a Reese style trailer hitch. Thinking about adding this to my product line, so I'm looking for some feed back. The hitch will come in kit form. The side brackets will be separate and can be trimmed to the desired drop to fit under the rear bumper. The cross bar will be extra long so it can be trimmed for width between the side brackets. There will be two types of mounting brackets, "L" shape for offset mounting on the frame and "strap" brackets for flush mounting to the frame. The receiver will have a 6" drop. With the side brackets, cross bar and mounting brackets all being separate, you should be able to mount this to just about any frame. Please let me know what you guys think, it would be greatly appreciated....cheers...Danny

Ditto. I have a few trucks that could use some hitches. MUCH better than the one I made.

Guys Danny REALLY puts a LOT of thought into his product line, and i certainly shows. I think these'd go GREAT with the Galaxie Trailers, they're much more rugged and detailed lookin that what comes in the kits. GREAT idea Dan, I like it!

That's cool, and a good idea for something to sell. I personally wouldn't buy any since I make all my own, but for someone who doesn't have the time, patience, or skill, it would be a good buy.

There was a post here a long time ago about building that hitch from Evergreen. I did a couple and they look pretty good. The hitch ball you have is excellent. My buying any will directly be affected by the price & shipping. I would be interested in more info.
