Me neither.

I did buy a 24" super truss locally today. It was lightly used, is what we will need and was 170 less than new.

Missed out on the fast gun camper tie downs because the seller sold them out from under me when we were supposed to meet. Same seller as the truss.

I'll keep an eye out for the rest of the pieces to put this all together.

Took the camper out last night for the first time. We all came home alive.

And then I find this.

It gets me super close and I am so tempted to try it. Not sure it is worth saving $400 to use this instead of just sucking it up and buying the superhitch.

Looks pretty good. Think i'd have to try it out & see. Could always send back if not satisfied.

I'm going to offload the camper this week and then do some test fits with the tailgate down and an existing extension I have to see if it works. If it does, it will allow me to find the hitch upgrade used from a local source vs buying new.
