US TOW HITCH WITH WD


Recommended Posts

Dear members,

I have a 1973 Sovereign Internationl 31' GVWR 7100 Lbs and want to buy a Landrover Defender 130 2007 to pull it.

Because the Airstream will stay original I need to where I can find a US tow Hitch with WD (weight distribution) for this jeep

Many thanks for your reply,

Joop Keizer

If your in the UK, the standard 130 tow hitch mounting will be fine as a USA type hitch is not legal for UK use, if your in Europe or USA you'll have to comply with the relevant regulations as well.

not sure what you mean by the weight distribution part ?

This what he is talking about.

You pretty much need a class 4 receiver and then you could mail order the hitch parts. Probably tough to get a receiver hitch in the UK as they use those silly plow shaped things on the back.

You could probably mail order a receiver from the States, but as stated, it probably is not legal in the UK.
