RV Gear: Hug Your Hitch

Hitch Hugger

When you tow a travel trailer, hitches are part of your life — and so are annoying rattles. Most of us just deal with it — or turn up the stereo. But if you’ve been searching for a viable solution, the Hitch Hugger from Dakota Metal Works might just be it. The spring-loaded Hitch Hugger removes the vertical and lateral slack in the ball mount and hitch-receiver assemblies, resulting in a quiet ride, whether towing or solo. The Hitch Hugger installs in seconds and requires no tools — just insert the ball-mount shank through the Hitch Hugger, place the assembly in the hitch receiver, and you’re done. The product also helps eliminate wobble in bicycle racks, cargo carriers and receiver-mounted mud flaps. The Hitch Hugger is available in a variety of sizes to suit most popular hitch designs.

MSRP: $69.95 to $79.95
