We just bought a new tv and I need a new stinger. I now need a 2" drop stinger. My straight stinger makes the camper tongue high. Our new 14 f150 HD sits a lot higher than our old f150. So I'm asking if any michigan member see's one for sale please PM me. Thanks for your help.

I would even trade someone a straight stinger for a 2" drop.

Have you checked Craigslist? I would think that anyone that wants to sell anything camping related would be coming out of the woodwork posting their stuff with the winter we had.

Hensley is based out of Davidson, Michigan. Why not contact them directly? You can save a good amount of cash picking up a hitch than having it shipped.

Craigslist yes I've checked all neighboring states.
A new stinger is 243.00 bucks. I'm just trying to save a little before I have to buy a brand new one.

HMMMM,
I thought one of their selling points was the free exchange of stingers with just shipping charges.

I have heard they have great customer service, can't hurt to see if they would exchange it, maybe even for a small fee.

Good luck!

Look into buying extended warranty. If you have the warranty it may entitle you to free swaps. I believe the warranty is in the $550.00 range which isn't cheap however a stinger may cost $150.00-$200.00. Buying the warranty may get you the stinger you need and the peace of mind the warranty provides. Maybe worth looking into!
