Provide Comfort: With a smoother ride! Travel a lot on concrete highways? No more jarring every time you cross a section divider. Your Shocker air hitch absorbs the thumps and bumps.

Improves Safety: By giving you improved control of your tow vehicle and trailer. The air bag receiver hitch system allows for better control of your pickup and the trailer it is towing.

Shock Dampening Action: Shocker air hitch effectively absorbs the jerking, tugging and damaging forces experienced with a typical hard connection when towing trailers. There is no reason to beat yourself or your equipment up with a hard connection between your trailer and your receiver hitch.

Saves Money: By reducing trailer breakage on both the trailer and the trailer contents! The Shocker hitch absorbs the damaging forces experienced with a typical hard connection. This greatly reduces the chances of breaking welds and doing other long term damage to your equipment as well as the valuable cargo you have inside the truck and trailer.

Note: Always use a good hitch ball with the proper recommended tow weight.

Safety Notice: The Shocker Hitch is a heavy duty unit that in most cases exceeds factory receiver hitch weight capacities, therefore it is imperative that you always read and follow the tongue and towing weight recommendations of the receiver hitch that is mounted on your tow vehicle.

Shocker Air Installation: First you must compress the air bag. Do this by depressing air valve and pushing down on air bag.
Once the bag has been compressed, you can install the unit into the receiver tube. Next install hitch pin.

To Set Air: Hook up trailer using properly selected ball adaptor and height adjustment in order to a level trailer when loaded. Next, inflate the air bag. As air pressure increases, the unit will rotate lifting the hitch point. Install enough air to lightly compress top bushing or until bump stop clearance is approximately 1/8″.

Additional Set Up Notes:

  • When towing heavy trailers or trailers with high wind resistance it may be necessary to increase air pressure in the Shocker.
  • It is highly recommended that the hitch ball be greased to reduce wear and improve shocker action.
  • DO NOT TIGHTEN THE TOP BOLT, IT IS A LIMITER STOP ONLY.

Maximum Air Pressure: Do not exceed 100 psi in the air bag, as it may damage the air bag.

FAQ

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

How much air do I put in the Receiver Mount hitch?
With your trailer hooked up to the tow vehicle, and loads positioned for transport, air up shocker until main frame rotates and lightly compresses top bushing (about 1/8″ of squeeze or pinch in the bushing).

How long will it hold air?
This is a sealed system that will hold air for weeks or months. If you haul the same trailer with the same load weight, it should be good for quite some time.

How do I know the Shocker Air receiver hitch will fit my truck?
We have made sure that the receiver air shocker will fit into most Ford, Chevy, Dodge, Toyota and SUV’s. There are some clearance issues with the Chevy Envoy, Ford Explorer, some imports and service body vehicles where the body extends below the receiver tube. The use of “reducer” sleeves on trucks with a 2 1/2″ receiver tube is not recommended. The Shocker Air receiver hitch is available in a 2″, 2 1/2″ & 3″ shank. Please indicated which vehicle you intend to use the hitch with, make/model/year and we will attempt to get you a great fitting hitch.

How far below my pickup does the receiver air shocker hang?
Five inches below bottom of receiver tube.

How often do I grease it?
The grease does not just lube the pivot; it also keeps water and dirt out. You cannot over grease it, once every few months should do it.

Does the receiver air hitch work like or with an equalizer hitch?
No.

How does the Receiver hitch work?
The Receiver air shocker is like a teeter totter. One end is an air bag, a pivot in the middle, and a ball at the other end. This gives a “pillow” effect at the ball end.

Should I tighten up the top jam nut on the receiver shocker?
No. The air shocker needs at least one half inch of play to work properly.

How much does an Shocker Air bag receiver hitch weigh?
The Receiver Air Shocker weighs 40 pounds

    This is the best hitch product I have ever owned. Would highly recommend to anyone who tows.

  2. Ted F. Toronto, ON

    I just want thank Bob and Eric for their advice and product supplied. I have pulled the same 16 foot work trailer for 10 years. I have worn out (2) all aluminum adjustable units and lived with the crash and smash at every stop and start! My new 12k combo unit pulls straight, is quite and ultimately separates the truck and trailer….I am a believer and hope to refer friends to your great products in the Toronto, Ontario area. God bless.

  3. Randall K. Houlton, MA

    I want to thank the great staff at Shocker Hitch for offering such a great product. Eric was very helpful with getting me set up with the hitch that met my needs. I have towed with a just a ball, and also weight distribution hitch before. Doing this when the truck goes over a dip in the road you feel it in the cab, and again once the trailer goes over the dip in the road. I always thought this would cause strain on a truck frame. My Chevrolet truck suffered this by a cracked frame. I will treat my Dodge Ram 2500 to the luxury of the Shocker Hitch. This past weekend I was able to give the shocker hit a try. Hitched up, coffee, and 800 miles later… I am SOLD that Shocker Hitch is the best option for hauling a trailer. My vintage Airstream weighs in at 7700 Lbs. The trailer followed true and never swayed once. I do not have a friction sway control system connected to the trailer though the option is available from Shocker Hitch. I went over a lot of bumpy roads and never felt the trailer bucking like before with either a ball or weight distribution set up. SMOOTHEST RIDE EVER!!!
    Thanks Eric

    We purchased our Shocker Receiver Hitch in 2008 and have towed our Arctic Fox 26J Travel Trailer over 45,000 miles with it. If you tow over concrete highways and suffer jolting or the dreaded “Ba-Dump Ba-Bump” from the joints in the slabs; This hitch is for you, any bumps, jolts and road defect impacts are reduced greatly. I am asked more times on the road about the hitch and how it works. We just sold our beloved 26J to some family friends and they bought a Shocker Hitch just like ours to tow with. Best hitches ever, we will never tow with anything else. We are looking forward to years of easy towing of our new Arctic Fox 25W with this hitch.

    If you don’t have one now…Get one!

    Being in the seamless gutter business, I pull a 6,000 pound tandem axle trailer on a daily basis, up & down the hills of western New York. Most of my driving is non expressway, secondary, and back roads. I would get jerked back & forth while traveling down the road. The hitch pin hole would wear oblong. After purchasing the “Shocker Hitch”, ALL the jerking back & forth disappeared while towing the trailer with torsion axles. I literally don’t know the trailer is behind me. If I didn’t know better, I’d have to look in the mirror to see if I forgot the trailer. The “Shocker Hitch” takes about 80% of the jerking out of my dump trailer, with rocker suspension. The “Shocker Hitch” is a GREAT product, well worth the money! MAY I ALSO ADD; Two or three years after purchasing the “Shocker Hitch”, I bought a new 2016 truck, and found GM changed the hitch design. “Shocker Hitch” was already on top of things. They sent me an up-dated steal plate(part)which I had to swap out with the original. Other than $10.00 shipping, there was no charge to me for the steal plate. HOW IS THAT FOR SERVICE??? Especially 2 or 3 years after purchasing the “Shocker Hitch”. Talk about standing behind your product……. I would have gladly paid for the part. I grease my “Shocker Hitch” once a week. When swapping out the steal plate, I found no wear to the moving parts.

    Moral of the story; If your tired of being jerked around, get a “Shocker Hitch”. You’ll Never regret it.

  6. Brad S. from Ravia, OK

    I have been using the Shocker Receiver Mount for the past 5 years. I haul a VERY Rough Equipment Trailer with loads averaging around 8-10K. Prior to purchasing this hitch the trailer unloaded was miserable to transport. The heavy axles and frame transfer a tremendous amount of turbulence to the tow vehicle before buying this Hitch I almost took the trailer back! The hitch has performed flawlessly and I have hauled loads for thousands of miles. Today 8-20-15 I contacted customer support for replacement bushings the customer service was like the old days friendly and helpful something you cannot say about many businesses today so I want to send out a Big Thank You for your help and I will refer your product to those who ask and there have been many!

    “After purchasing your shocker hitch, I went and picked up a 20 ft car hauler (Many people saw my hitch at Becks trailers in St. Johns, MI and were amazed by it). Before owning this large of a trailer, I had the normal ball and hitch. I am a true believer about your hitch setup. The drive back from Lansing, MI to Peru, IN was so much smoother with a much bigger trailer then my last trailer which was only 12X6. Thanks for the help and I will be recommending this hitch to all of my friends.”

    Thanks again for your help with my hitch and getting it setup before even shipping it. Ready to hookup and roll out.

    I purchased the cushion ball a few months ago . It did what I was told it would do , It reduced the noise and vibration at least 90% from being transferred from my trailer to the pickup. I thought I had a trailer problem and was ready to give my trailer back to the manufacturer and tell them to put it where the sun don’t shine. I have pulled my trailer about 3500 miles and am very pleased with my cushion ball, Sometimes I forget my 30 ‘ dually tandem axle trailer is behind my dodge megacab.

    Thank you so much,

    I purchased the Heavy duty receiver hitch to pull my 27′ RV and a 20′ trailer for work. This hitch has been great. Not only did it stop the shock in the road bumps it also eliminated the shock in the starting to roll and the stop of the truck. This was one feature i did not understand when i purchased the hitch. This has made our travel so enjoyable. Thank you very much for you design and customer service.

    Your hitch is AMAZING! We recently had to move our son to Ohio, so had to rent a U-Haul trailer. We have a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and my husband is VERY fussy with his vehicles and knows what is is like to pull anything behind a truck and get jostled around in the cab with every crack and bump in the road. We bought the Shocker Hitch and loaded the trailer and off we went. It was such a smooth ride, we couldn’t even tell we were pulling anything. It was so nice. We highly recommend it.

    Thank you,

    I purchased a shocker air receiver hitch after driving semi for 29 years. I am retired and pull a 20ft equipment trailer with my ford superduty F350. This hitch smoothes out the ride, especially when empty.
    Thanks for a Great Product!! I am informing all my friends about it!

  13. Jason G.

    Dear Shocker Hitch,I just purchased a receiver mount hitch and It works well. I would say it takes out at lest 50% of the shock from towing my Airstream.

    Thanks,

    This hitch has been by far the best investment that I have ever bought. I have owned this hitch for six years now, and it gets used very often. In fact, if you see me pulling my twenty foot bumper pull you can guaranty I’m using my shocker hitch. Whether I’m pulling my 1952 John Deere R to a tractor pull or hauling #10,000 of firewood off the mountain. The quality of this hitch is amazing. This hitch literally takes the shock forces away from my pickup and my trailer. The hitch is a little pricey, but it’s worth every penny. On behalf of my pickup, my trailer, and myself, thanks Shocker Hitch!!

    I rave about my hitch and encourage my friends to try mine. Last week I had to tow a car trailer 15 miles from work to town to get 300 gallons of water, in a water tank of course. I used the solid mount hitch that was sitting on the trailer, I came straight home to switch out to my shocker. It’s ridiculous how much better they work, “Thanks a bunch” I’ll never part with this thing. These hitches are as awesome as the others using them claim. I’ll never waste another cent on hard connection hitches.

    Shocker Hitch has been the most economical solution to my rough ride while towing problems. Now when I am towing it’s like I am not towing. It feels more like I am carrying a load in the back of my truck. My truck actual rides smoother when I am towing compared to when I am not towing. Thank you Shocker Hitch for a great product!”

    Purchased the Shockerhitch for a 1500 mile trip to Virginia and back. Was at ease knowing the money back guarantee if I wasn’t satisified. NOT a problem. Towed a 4000lb 24ft enclosed race car trailer out empty and completely loaded (over 10k total trailer wt) to the back doors helping a friend move back to Missouri. No one knows how much they have until they need to move. Just adjusted the air pressure in the bag. Both ways very enjoyable ride, way less stress on myself as the driver. However the ultimate comment was made by my wife, the toughest critic of spending money when I already had a hitch that did the job, she could actually read while towing, when before she couldn’t do that on the last trip she rode with me. Congrats Shocker Hitch, one satisfied customer.”

    I had a chance to put the shocker receiver hitch to the test and couldn’t be happier. Suspending the front of the trailer on an air bag completely changes how the trailer rides and handles bumps. The 5 link/coil spring rear end on the Ram, shocker hitch, and tandem torsion axles work together to produce an incredibly smooth ride while towing on rough Alaskan roads. Thanks for the great product!

    Money well spent! We use this hitch when pulling our 19’ fishing boat, makes for a lot smoother towing experience, absorbs the jarring and banging of rough washboard roads.

  23. Michelle Anderson (verified owner)

    Fantastic hitch, love it. Just one negative…you can’t buy a lock for the attachments, so they can’t be stolen.

  24. Brandon Burley (verified owner)

    I pull a 16 ft box trailer every day. It can beat you to death. The shocker hitch took all the whiplash and slack out of the trailer. So much so that there has been several instances that didn’t realize I had the trailer on.

  25. LANDON (verified owner)

    Using with my 14′ dump trailer, it definitely smooths out the ride. It removes the hard connection, hard jarring feeling. Well worth it.

  26. Jan C. (verified owner)

    I purchased this about 2 months ago, and have pulled our 28ft camper twice so far. Tows great, and first time after parking camper that I opened cupboards and refrigerator that dishes and food did not fall out. So much easier hooking up when do not need sway bars also. Also noticed a driver looking at our hitch as he passed us on highway, as he must have wondered why it didn’t bounch as much.
    Definitely would recommend this hitch.

  27. Ronald (verified owner)

    I have been on the fence for some time on whether to purchase or not.

    I ran into an old friend that has a concession business. He had shocker hitches on his trucks. I asked him how he liked them and he told me they liked them so much, that they had them on all their trucks, and they tow big trailers all over the state.

    I went ahead and purchased one on his recommendation. I only used it once so far, but I couldn’t even tell the trailer was there. I should have got one when I first heard of them.
