I purchased a trailer hitch from etrailer.com which was listed to be powder coat finish for $250. It had just a cheap looking paint finish which will be nothing but rust in a year in the climate zone I live in.
I called the company and explained my problem with there product, but they insisted it was a powder coat finish, which was obvious not true. Anyone can tell the difference.
In fact some of the paint was chipped off due the handling of the box it came in that was beat up and a number of holes punched through it.
