Bolt-On Caddy Keeps Receiver Hitches Handy
“The Pro Hitch Caddy makes it easy to store and organize receiver hitches in your pickup bed. It bolts onto the side of the bed next to the tailgate, so it doesn’t take up much space or get in the way of loading or unloading,” says Dave Julian, Volga, S. Dak.
  The 8-in. wide Caddy is 9 1/4 in. high. It’s made from 1/8-in. thick, zinc-plated, powder-coated steel and has a pair of holes cut into it to hold 2 receiver hitches. The unit requires drilling four 1/4-in. dia. holes into the side of the bed.
  “It keeps your receiver hitches from rolling around in the back of the pickup and ending up out of reach,” says Julian. “One time I had to crawl forward on the bed floor to reach a hitch and accidentally put a drywall screw through my knee. That motivated me to build a prototype of my Hitch Caddy, and an hour later I had it mounted on my pickup. Another factor is that more states are requiring that receiver hitches be removed when not in use.”
  The Pro Hitch Caddy is available for Ford, Chevrolet, GM, and Dodge pickups. It comes with all necessary bolts and nuts.  The standard black powder-coated version sells for $80 plus S&H. The unit can also be ordered in black gloss “high graphic” automotive paint and clearcoat with hydro-dipped graphics, which sells for $160 plus S&H.
