Question "OffRoader" hitches?

Been looking for a class III hitch for my 2012. This sounds fine and is much cheaper than other brands. Anyone have experience with this brand? On EBay and Amazon for around $78

Wouldn't be my first choice, the bolt-on cross tube looks cheesy to me, you can get a welded US made Curt for a bit more.

Agree with Quickdtoo - the Curt hitch appears to be much more solidly constructed and we have had no problems with ours.

I recently got the Draw-Tite/U-Haul (made by Cequent) 75235 recently, this is the one that instead of 4 bolts actually has an extra 5th bolt to attach to the frame... there's a 6th hole so you could even tap the frame and go the extra bolt if you wanted.

So far not bad, seems to be well made and had good fitment, used it to haul a boat I recently bought.

I considered a Drawtite hitch, but I never found anywhere on the Drawtite website that states where they're made which is very telling in this era of international sourcing, the Drawtite 75235 is made in Mexico.
