I know somebody who uses one. Don't know if it's that exact brand, but he loves it.

Re: anybody use this type of hitch-haul-thing

I guess it depends how much your hitch can carry. I have a '12 Wrangler & it only holds like 350lbs. R6 is close to 400 lbs i believe. Your hitch is holding up that amount of weight, not pulling it.

That says it's only safe for a Class 3 or 4 hitch. Most cars only have a Class 1 or 2. Go look at your hitch. There should be a label on there stating tongue weight. Your owner's manual will also have a tongue weight.

Once upon a time I used one with my Titan. Loved it. As long as you use the anti wobble bracket you'll be good.
