This is exactly what I was hoping for. Elimination of the wobbly 2 - 2.5 inch sleeve. This was a simple unbolt, rebolt using my current travel trailer hitch. Very sturdy hitch replacement.

Payton helped me cancel a shank I ordered before it shipped and get the correct part. She was patient as I never ordered one before and had to measure the old part.

This is a well made product and not so heavy as the welded DrawTite shank I was using previously. Most importantly, the hole pattern eliminates the dead zone other shanks have, where the attached hitch head is either too low or way too high. I like that the hitch is shorter in length, as it reduces the leverage of the trailer tongue weight. Others may find this to be a drawback because the tailgate of a pickup truck might not open fully with a trailer attached due to shorter distance to the tongue jack. This is one of the few shanks I could find that fit a Class V receiver and I will be purchasing more of these for our other tow vehicles. They are that nice!

Although my hitch isn’t a curt it was a perfect match for what I need

Purchased this to replace the 2” I was using for my F250 after purchasing my F350. It was a pain to use the reducing sleeve and get the heavy hitch for my camper to line up with it to get the pin in. This was a perfect replacement. I was concerned it would work because the description and photos didn’t do a good job of showing it it 2.5” for the truck receiver and 2” to fit the hitch were it bolts in. A little pricey but worth every penny to eliminate fitting with the reducing sleeve!!

This product is exactly what I expected it to be and came very quickly. I will now be able to get rid of the spacer sleeve that I have been using for my previous hitch. This was my first order with etrailer but certainly will not be my last. Their price guarantee and customer service cannot be matched.
