Like we thought, it was fine. Here was the response from etrailor:

The trailer hitch, # 87554, is manufactured to have a little tolerance
to help ease installation. When all of the bolts are tightened to the

Their response is basically what i was expecting (and hoping). I'm
glad i checked and made sure, though.
