ride & handling
Cruise Master DO35 coupling
Rex Gretton could see the
need for a type of tow hitch that reduced the impact between the
trailer & the tow vehicle, particularly when transporting his
restored Chamberlain tractor & towing the camper trailer to old
A prototype Protect-A-Hitch was designed & built. After the first
use the improved ride & handling was immediately felt. There were no
more bumps, pushing or shoving from the trailer. From there Rex went
on to design a bolt on model suitable as a replacement to where a
tow hitch normally attaches.
The Protect-A-Hitch is built for
Australian conditions using Australian steel & certified by
mechanical engineers to Australian Standards for 1.5 tonnes mass.
Rex is waiting on certification of a 3 or 3.5 tonne model.
