New 2-in-1 Hitch Fits Any Trailer
"Lets one trailer do the work of two," says Wendell Corbett, designer of a new conversion hitch that lets you switch from straight trailer hitch to gooseneck in minutes.
"You can use it for work around the farm with a pin or ball hitch and then switch to the gooseneck configuration for over-the-road travel. Until now, you needed two different trailers," explains Corbett.
The new hitching system can be mounted on most existing trailers by cutting away the old hitch (whether gooseneck or straight) and attaching the conversion hitch's 1/2 in. steel base plate. Corbett's two hitches then fit right onto the base plate, fastening
into towing position with just four bolts.
"The base plate bolts or welds to the front of the trailer frame. In some cases, part of the trailer will have to be cut away to get to the frame," explains Corbett, who also manufactures a residue saver for combines.
The new hitch comes in kit form with everything needed for installation. Three different sizes are available. Cost for the 20-ft. trailer model is right at $1,195.
