    Looks like you had better luck with yours than I did on the one I had. Not even remotely watertight, then the latch seized up, and wouldn't open. One of those things that sounded like a good idea on paper, real world not so much. Maybe would have worked out better if it was in front of the tire instead of behind it. I guess better that it stuck closed than having it flop open by itself...

    I live in Rochester Twp...Right across the border from New Sewickley...I was in Ohioville last weekend right off 168 out of midland..nice country out there.

    Never heard the term stinger?...I don't hear it all the time, but the term is used in my circles...Maybe because of the shin stingers they cause

    I'm in Ohio - when you say stinger I think of the hydraulic wheel lift that tow trucks and roll backs carry under the bed. Do you call Coca Cola soda or pop?

    In Ohio a Stinger is the hydraulic wheel lift on a Rollback or Tow truck. Also everyone here calls their hitch ball a receiver, even though that's actually the part of the hitch that's bolted to the truck...

    Ah the English language...The hydraulic lift on a crane is also called a stinger in some circles....Sometimes it's good to use unknown/unrealted terms to completely freeze up a conversation...That is a fun linguistic strategy at work sometimes...Allows time to regroup.

    Looks like 200# of tongue weight and 2000# of trailer weight per the hitches available from Trailer Hitch for 2012 Toyota Prius | etrailer.com.
