my receiver is a 2 1/2" and when looking at weight distribution hitches with 2 1/2" shanks they are double the price of 2" units. Are there any problems with using a reducer.

I didnt see a shank that would go from 2 to 2 1/2

The 2" units will cover the weight loads im looking to pull.

i only need a 10k hitch and the 2 1/2" units is 17k. i dont mind using the adapter since i have no need for the extra capacity at this time.

The 2" adapter is fine for anything under 12k. Over that you need to go with the 2 1/2" set up. I have looked for the bigger set myself but they are considerably more expensive.

give a liberal coating of anti-seize to that adapter (inside & out wont hurt)...you DONT
want that thing fused inside your class V titan !
