The Pros and Cons of the REBEL Hitch 

Choosing the right hitch can be a difficult decision. There are many different options available on the market, and understanding their pros and cons can be challenging as most retailers aren’t forthcoming about the cons of their products. However, we at GEN-Y Hitch believe in transparency. If you know what you’re getting, you can ensure you buy the only hitch you’ll ever need! Our REBEL hitch is one of our best products, and if you’re considering buying one, we want you to know the ins and outs of this product. Here are the pros and cons of the REBEL hitch!

Pros of the REBEL Hitch

The REBEL hitch offers several advantages to those who choose to use it. Here are some of the biggest pros and perks of this product that you should be aware of.

A Top Quality hitch

All GEN-Y products are quality made, and the REBEL hitch is no exception. Made 100% in the USA, the REBEL is fabricated from heavy-duty steel and sandblasted and coated with a durable powder coat. This innovative construction keeps the hitch looking sharp and performing well for years to come. Don’t settle for a hitch that will fail after only a few years of use. Completely priced, the REBEL will keep getting the job done for decades to come.

The REBEL is a Fully-Adjustable Drop Hitch

One of the best features of the REBEL hitch is its stacked tube design. This allows the consumer to adjust the ball mount up or down in order to receive the perfect amount of drop every time, no matter which vehicle and towing load they’re using. This hitch can be used in the drop or rise position, making it one of the most versatile hitches available on the market.

The REBEL Hitch Offers Several Accessories

While this hitch can certainly stand on its own, your towing experience can be made even better through the use of the REBEL’s towing accessories.

Additions such as the:

  • Economy sway control plate
  • Platinum sway control plate
  • Economy ball mount
  • Platinum ball mount
  • Hitch step

It will only further enhance your towing experience. Order your REBEL hitch today and change the way you tow forever!

Cons of the REBEL Hitch

While the REBEL hitch offers several benefits, there are also a few cons to be aware of. Specifically, its limited towing capacity.

Towing Limitations

The REBEL is made for lighter-duty towing and is therefore only rated for a maximum of 5,000 lbs. This makes it perfect for smaller loads such as fishing boats, utility trailers, or flatbed trailers. However, this limitation means the REBEL can’t haul big loads like a camper trailer or large vehicle.

Although the REBEL X Drop Hitch has a slightly higher towing capacity of 7,000 lbs, should you require a higher-rated hitch, consider checking out our Mega-Duty line of hitches, which are rated for up to 32,000 lbs.

If you’re looking for a quality hitch to handle some lighter-duty towing, then look no further than the REBEL hitch!
