...assumption correct!!Nitz said:So many different posts to choose from to ask this question but this is the most recent so I will give it a chance and hope IRV doesn't yell at me for not using the search....I have the hidden hitch 1 1/4 hitch. I am looking to buy a 4x8 utility trailer and using it as a mule for my trips to Home Depot (drywal, landscaping, etc.) Can I pull this trailer with this hitch? Am I correct in assuming that the 2 inch hitch can pull more although the amount the 1 1/4 inch hitch can pull already surpasses the max allowed by the Element? Any advice would be appreciated, I have never had ANY experience pulling a trailer.
