Might fail if you're trying to pull a freight train! Otherwise, it looks pretty sturdy!

It looks pretty sturdy.. Only thing I don't like are the bolts, might just be the pictures, but they look a little small. When I help set up hitching for people picking up their RVs, the bolts and nuts are usually pretty big.

Pretty decent welds, I don't see that failing at all.

Should work. Guess it all depends on what you hook up to it.
