Stronger than expected
Received the bracket in 2 days but the plate took 7. In less than an hour it was set up and ready to tow. Pulled 10,000 pound 5th wheel over the continental divide and on dirt roads with no problems. Jaws that clamp the king pin look bigger/stronger that other brand X hitches. Liked the fact that it's adjustable, had to move it to the back position so my tailgate would not hit my 5th wheel.
