California Residents: Prop 65 Warning
I’ve had the standard size Shocker Hitch air bag receiver for several years and liked it. I pull a travel trailer with a vintage Kenworth truck, and the Shocker Hitch protects the trailer from the harsh Kenworth suspension. I’ve convinced several other vintage truck owners to purchase the Shocker Hitch to protect their trailers; convincing is easy after they’ve broken their trailer. I recently purchased a larger trailer and upgraded to the HD Shocker Hitch to support the added weight. As expected, installation was easy and the air bag protects my trailer.
Absolutely love this hitch, takes all the pain out of heavy tongue weight. I will never use a regular hitch again. Customer service is outstanding as well. Couldn’t be more happy. Worth every penny to me.
