Cringing at the thought...

After all, if you pound your ball on the ground, won't it get covered with dirt?

Just the back of the coupler will get dirty.

Just DO NOT get sand on your shank, and if you do, you had better clean it all off, before you put it in the receiver, or both will get sanded raw.

Three Ain't a Crowd

What about newbies like me who have a heck of a time getting coupled and need a spotter to help guide it in?

Any volunteers????
