So...my father-in-law just bought a new spa. The spa is in Phoenix (two hours away), and he needs to borrow my truck to pick it up. The spa weighs about 500 pounds, and then he rented a 7 ft x 18 ft trailer to haul it. Right now I don't have a receiver hitch, and he wants to put the load on the bumper. I am a little scared about that. What do you guys think, would I be ok towing one time for two hours off the bumper, with less than 2000 lbs gross weight? Or should I look into a cheap receiver hitch?
I saw this on craigslist, do you think this would fit our trucks, its off a 92 Exploder. As you can see I have a 2002 Edge w/ manual trans 3.0
Let me know what you think, any help is appreciated.
