Re: UnaGoose v.s. B&W gooseneck hitch
Thanks for the input on the B&W, I have looked at one.
I haven't saw a UnaGoose hitch, but if it has 10000 lb extra capacity
then it's got to be built heavier. Would I ever tow that much with my F250? No, but it's like my tractors (see my signature).
I buy John Deere's. They make cost more than a Kubota, or Massey but their frames are built heavier. On this black gumbo, clay soil, if it's not heavy, it will break and it's junk..........
As far as the B&W not being damaged in the accidents that you mentioned, a visual inspection ain't gonna cut it. Do you have a degree in metallurgy? How about x-raying that hitch and looking for fractures?
I would gladly pay the extra $70 for a better hitch (if it is better).
If I had wanted to go along with the crowd and buy the B&W, I wouldn't have even posted the question in the first place.
The purpose of my original question was to find out which hitch was the best. I am still waiting on comments on the UnaGoose from actual users or installers.
