We currently pull our 8k bumper pull Toy hauler with an older Eaz-Lift 1,000/10,000 round bar hitch with chains. While it doesn't exceed the gross trailer weight it does exceed the tongue weight by 100-150 lbs, but so far no signs of damage. We have our trailer in the shop right now having the tongue lengthened enough to hold our Yamaha generator, a new compressor and the usual stuff: two batteries, two 7 gallon propane bottles and an electric tongue jack making the tongue about two feet longer. While I won't be able to weigh the new setup till it gets out of the shop I figure I need a hitch rated 1,400/14,000. What I'm looking for are opinions from people familiar with both the round bar types and also the trunnion types if possible. Also solid bars compared to chain types.
