I am interested in the Demco Recon Hitch. Is anyone using one? I would be interested in your opinion.

I looked pretty closely at that one(after you posted it) and I wonder how it compares with others in available side to side movement.

I will replace my free Reese eventually, but I hope to get one that has a lot of side to side available. Less binding that way. I have read it will work with my Sidewinder pinbox too.

Yes, on the Sidewinder pinbox. That is why I wanted it. I like the way it separates with the pyramid base and the yoke. Light weight and easy to handle. I don't know about the side to side movement. If I uncover any additional information I will share it here. Please let me know if you do. That is why I posted it to gain some additional information. Thanks.

Will do. For comparison, I emailed B&W about the Patriot (top contender on my list currently) and theirs has 7 deg of side to side rotation, but is cushioned and has a leaf spring to dampen the movement. The 16K Patriot is within a few bucks of the Recon. Slightly heavier but not excessively so.

I watched the video of the Recon and the guy kinda brushed over the side to side movement, and I swear I heard metal to metal clunk. Would like to know more from them.
