It's much more likely to be a 5k load, but I want the option to tow a loaded Waggy and not be at 100% capacity. I thought all Class IV hitches were about the same, but I noticed they don't all carry the same ratings. I've just used factory hitches on all the other tow rigs I've used, so this is all new.

I'm pretty sure I want this brake controller based on what I've read, but let me know if there is a better choice. I'm not concerned about the cost of a hitch or controller since they are safety equipment.

Thanks for any help.
Putnam Hitch, a Michigan company, makes a Class V hitch for under $150. 15K weight-carrying capacity.
