When you decide to take your fifth wheel off on a camping trip along the banks of a river in a national park or down to a local lake for a weekend getaway, this hitch is made to make it easy to maneuver your trailer due to an articulating head that gives you the ability to pivot from front to back and side to side. That makes parking so much easier. The side-to-side pivot is spring cushioned, and there is no metal-to-metal contact because it uses polyurethane bushings.

With its cam action handle that is easily accessed and released, disconnection is easy no matter whether you are parked level or not.
