Tom was forced to admit today he needs a new reese hitch for his Wolkswagen, as his old one finally gave in. The problem is not only he is short on money, but so am i these days, so he might end up buying a used reese hitch, even i advise against it. Usually, that is. I don't have so much experience with these technical/mechanical things, but i surely know an used object is less reliable than a new one. On the other hand, maybe if the quality of the reese hitch is good enough, it could overcome the fact that it's used, so it could be better than a new, low-quality one.
