I purchased this to install on our new van. It is rated to tow 8900# and I doubt I will ever tow that much (I usually use my Silverado) with it but I bought the hitch rated for what it could tow, just in case. This receiver is well built, better than most I've seen; very thick walls and reinforced rings for safety chains. Installed myself but would have been easier with another person for help. Definitely recommend this hitch!
