I have had it for about 1 1/2 years or more works great, light,no rust, but the tube is loose in the hitch (not much but makes noise)so I cut a plastic laundry soap jug to make 2 shims, one on the side 1 on the top or bottom . no more noise, ( I use the same shims for my camper to keep the clunk quite when turning or stoping,starting.)

You can get a clamp for that at any trailer supply shop for like $10-$15

Yeah, but the clamps are iffy at best with aluminum drawbars. The "bolt through" kind will destroy it in short order and the kind that go outside the receiver and clamp down on the drawbar tend to cut right through them after a while on the road.

The draw bar on the carrier is steel...

I just got the flyer today and if you look closer, the price on the ALUMINUM one is $79. They have a picture of the aluminum version with the $59 price for the steel version underneath it and the aluminum price at $79 below that. It's easy to look at the ad and think that the aluminum version is $59. I checked in at the store just in case and they don't have any coupons for it, just the $79 price.

There is a sale later this month (ends 20-June) that has the $20 coupon on the AL one. It just hasn't started yet according to my local HF.
