Just curious - Marina posted a photo on FGRV thread "sightings", post 2322, is that your Escape in the foreground - looks like your tug?
Adrian, I found my expectations for what I wanted from it met, and if your wife is not used to towing much, it would be a worthwhile purchase.
Good eye, that is us. We were camped right beside Marina (and her furfriend, Tony).

Don't be fooled, while a WDH may help with some sway (rarely caused by wind in my experience), the effects of real high winds that should be avoided with our bubble trailers.I have stopped towing a couple times in high winds.

The install was very straight forward. Typical of anything like that, I could do the next one with my eyes closed in half the time. I did screw one thing up, though it does not make a huge difference, in that I forgot to lock the hitch on the ball when I tightened up the brackets and set the set screws. This just resulted in my brackets being back near 1/4" too much, and instead of 7 threads showing, I am leaving only 5 showing.
