Re: Heidi - Gooseneck hitch questions

Heidi, I've had several fold-down hitches installed over the years in
Redmond, Oregon, at a place called Larkin Welding.  My husband bought one in
Bend for our current truck and installed it himself.  I've seen them from
many places, in several states.  I'd suggest going to anyplace that does
trailer work and welding.  They're pretty common, and from what I can see of
them, the various brands are pretty similar.
