The backup lights on the truck really makes the tape stand out and when i backup alignment is spot on every time with the only issue of getting the trailer height to the correct height so the stinger will slide in. I can be hitched up and rolling in about 3 minutes.
Great idea, thanks for the input!

Wink Who cares.....?

....mine is better than any other hitch on the market.

Why?....because it's mine, and so's the 1200lb tongue weight, how easy it is to hitch and un-hitch, the outlandish cost, and the poor finish that's never rusted....you just have to be a little smarter than the average stinger....

I have a challenge unhitching from my Hensley because the TV has air suspension. I raise the jack fairly high and there is still upwards pressure from the sir suspension. I pull away and the car rises until I drive a short distance then is settles back down to normal elevation.

Thumbs up

BTW.....tongue weight only matters when un-hitched.

Use the latch bar to pry "pop" the stinger from the hitch receiver and drive away.
