last time i counted there were 5-6 physical dimensions to this process and a couple of existential ones too ...

and for folks who FORCE it or haven't yet learned the simple keys,

it can take a-while....

otoh once ya learn it can be very quick and relatively easy.

i do it alone in just minutes (that reads sorta kinky right?)

no doubt the new 'burb has improved your towing experience significantly....

and perhaps these hitches are considered a 'luxury' item by some,

and the endless debates on "is it worth it" or "is it necessary" may never end...

for me, KNOWING that the trailer will track in a very precise manner on multilane roads,

on curves and in ANY traffic or weather conditions removes the 'luxury' tag...

and the RELAXED towing experience added by the contraption is priceless...

often we look in the rearview mirrors to sort out WHERE the trailer is,

but using the 'luxury hitch' i always know where and how the trailer is tracking...

so, i look back for clearance issues but primarily to watch where EVERYONE ELSE is...

but hey uwe, u have scanned the this thread, right ?


all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.

we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.

Hey Air! Actually I thought I'd have a tuffer time with the stinger ......but really I havent found the transition all that difficult yet...........that said I haven't found myself in very challenging situations so far mostly flat ground, ect as we get used to this.

With a hensley or propride hitch you can hitch up just as fast as a reese, if you under stand how the hitch works. you can hookup at any degree angle or straight if you like. most people think you can only hookup straight.
