5 of the most common hitches available

In Australia, when it comes to trailer hitches, there are five common options to choose from.

50mm Ball Hitch

The first and most popular option is the 50mm Ball Hitch. This hitch is perfect for lighter trailers and is commonly used for towing small camper trailers like the Active Pod Trailer.

50mm Coupling - most widely adapted system on vehicles and Pod Trailers

If you're looking for a hitch with high articulation, the proprietary system by Cruisemaster is an excellent choice. The Cruisemaster D035 and Ozhitch Auto Couplers are two popular options that provide higher articulation over a standard 50mm ball hitch. This makes it easier to hook up your caravan or camper trailer, especially on uneven terrain. This hitch is available as an optional accessory on the Active Pod range of trailers by Trailmaster Industries.

70mm Ball Hitch

For heavier trailers, the 70mm Ball Hitch is recommended. This type of hitch is designed for use with boat trailers or larger caravans.

Weight Distribution Hitch

The Weight Distributing Hitch (WDH) is an excellent choice for those who need to distribute the weight of their trailer evenly across their vehicle. This hitch provides better stability and control for heavier loads, making it an ideal choice for those who need to tow larger items.

Fifth-Wheel Hitch

The Fifth-Wheel Hitch is designed specifically for large, heavy trailers. This type of hitch is typically installed in the bed of a pickup truck and is perfect for those who need to tow heavy loads.

Gooseneck Hitch

Lastly, the Gooseneck Hitch is similar to a fifth-wheel hitch, but it is designed for use with a gooseneck trailer. This type of trailer has a ball-and-socket connection instead of a kingpin connection.

When choosing a hitch for your trailer, it's important to choose one that is rated for the weight of your trailer. It's also essential to have your hitch installed by a professional and to ensure that it is compatible with your vehicle.
