for those of you folk who have "multiple toys" ever try this turnover ball?
has any tried the "turnover ball" I thought this might be a good idea, but was wondering if any one used it. I have my ski, small bass boat and a popup trailer thought that this might be a good idea
when i received my "trailer boat mag i saw this.. looks pretty sturdy but once again i was just curious.

yes that be the item... it looks like it might be just the ticket I wonder what that thing actually weighs any how.. my company gave us tow hitches for our company Chevy frailblazers, it's gotta weigh30+lbs. the turnover ball can be far behind. i think i will look into this thing.. sure beats playing "which hitch am i going to use today or walk into"
you have any input on this contraption?

I like the aluminum that the Rapid Hitch is made from. After a few years, just soak her down with some Alumina Brite and all better. I've been trying for about a year to justify the price, though (~$200 to my door on ebay).
I think you are talking about the receiver insert but I have the B & W gooseneck turnover ball hitch in my truck (we have a total of three where I work) and they are well built. Nice to be able to remove the ball for a slick bed too.
They make a very nice fifth-wheel that goes in the same receptacle as my gooseneck ball--one of the guys here has one. Very nice and again, easy to install/remove.

Thanks for the tip.
I'm worried about the weight of this thing.. I went to see if the local 4x4 shop had one in stock, but they did not have the exact model i was interested in. I did however get a rough idea on what the weight was.
This is a pretty neat gadget to have i think that when the summer arrives i'll go get me one. The Stow n go is all black (as my truck is) so i think that moght be the ticket.
Thanks for the reply
