    I was made to install one on a P10 under protest. It was never actually used.

    I had one on a P10.

    Got stuck coming out of a business. Drive sloped a little and bottom of hitch caught concrete and I needed a tow truck to get me unstuck.

    Delivered that business everyday with a P10. Got a new P10. It had a hitch.

    Sorry, but I was not going to stop and check at every business if the hitch was going to clear.

    Suppose you get stuck pulling out of stop in the morning only to turn around and get stuck pulling out of a stop in the afternoon. They may have the patience to overlook the first tow but will not be nearly as patient with the second.

    So, I just don't enter the business property to deliver to their dock?

    Other non-delivery. Hitch won't clear business entrance.

    This is exactly what I was talking about. Only the high step P10s could pull it off.

    Had a low step P10 with a TP60. Travel path to the drop off area didnt really have any slopes.

    I have a retail route. Pull one with a P10 every day. Piece count varies anywhere from 350 to over 700 some days, just depends on time of year and what stores get hit. Ocassionally have to use it for pickups also.I have one of the new wider ones and I think it pulls fine also lots more room inside. I actually prefer delivering out of it for business.

    Mine was a low step P10 international with a manual trans.
    We pull those TPs for years. We never had one problem with them.

    Mine is a new P10 automatic with the removable hitch that sits on top of the bumper. I leave it on all day even after I drop the TP no issues with scraping anywhere.
