    I don't have one or ordered one...yet. It's in the plans and when I do it will be the heavier version that will hold up to 16 weights. I don't have 16 weights either but I want heavier made things so I don't have to buy twice. And someday I might have 16 weights, only need 10 more to get there.

    We do now offer the weights as well and have a really great shipping offer with Fastenal company. We can ship to a store near you just about any amount of weight for $100 or less!

    We have one of their stores here in town. I seen it a few weeks ago after I read that you ship to them. When I make my order I'll probably have 2 weights in the mix.

    I have the Super Duty for 8 weights. Not to steer any biz from HH but I got my weights from that orange store when they had them on sale and got free shipping to my house.

    I picked the 16 weight hitch because it came standard with the thicker material and wasn't much more than the heavy duty 8 weight model.

    Look at it this way... you can always just put 8 weights on the Super Duty version but you can never put 16 weights on the standard version. :-)

    That's the point I attemted to make above. The super duty holds 8 weights - just made heavier than the standard hitch. The one that holds 16 weights is just that - a hitch that holds 16 weights although it is made of the heavier steel.

    I use 8- 70# on my rig and I have no issues except I strap them together as they like to swing back and forth and the weight shift could cause issues if on the side of a hill

    heavy hitch

    I bought the double one for mine. Use the receiver often. I like the double weight bars and keep weights on the front one to minimize rear length.. I bought 16 weights (1/2 45's and 1/2 70's). I purchased weights from an outfit in the Carolinas I recall. they sold packages of 16 weights and I split it into 8 each size. I picked them up at the dealer and layed them out evenly on the floor of my Envoy to bring them home. Road nice with that load. The weights are made in India and have a heavy John Deere green coating of paint. I normally use half of them. If I did it again, I would have only bought the 45'rs as those 70 lb's are damn heavy to put on and off.
